Forum: The Situation Room > Character by season articles

I'm about to go through season 1 and write out a slightly more in depth 'Tony Almeida on Day 1' article, but while I do, was wondering if I could also do some other characters - How about Nina Myers and Sherry Palmer? It would be their only ones but they appear a lot in day 1, what does anyone think about having articles for them? Sherry Palmer's current day 1 section is very short. The only thing is most of Sherry's actions would probably be covered by 'David Palmer on Day 1'. The other thing is Teri's article - she doesn't get a separate article, but should her day 1 section be split into hours like on the CBSAs?--Acer4666 13:30, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

I have to agree with you. I did created Teri Bauer and Nina Myers on Day 1 and kate warner on Day 2, because they all 3 spent 24 hours in a day. I understand why they were deleted, but they spent 24 hours in the show. Why don't get they articles?--Station7 16:38, January 26, 2011 (UTC)

I think the rule is that they are only for characters who appear in more than one season. But Nina and Sherry are grey areas - they have significant roles in 3 seasons, yet only deserve an article for one of them. For the pages you created, the information on them is meant to be on Teri or Kate Warner's character pages as that is all we know about them (having never been in other series). However if you just created the page and left it blank for someone else to fill in, I can see why they would be deleted--Acer4666 18:07, January 26, 2011 (UTC)
It makes no sense to give Teri Bauer or Kate Warner a separate CBSA. This is why the rule is that 1-season characters like Teri—as well as characters with only 1 major season appearance like Kate and Tom Lennox—are ineligible for them. Imagine if they were given CBSAs. What would we have on their main article? The appearances template and a link to the CBSA... and that's pretty much it, which is absurd. It can all fit on their main page.
To answer Acer4666's question, yes you are welcome to break down their Day 1 headings by sub-sections (like the CBSAs are). I could support Nina Myers and Sherry Palmer CBSAs each for Day 1. However, their other season appearance information would absolutely remain on their respective main articles' sub-headings. Blue Rook  talk  contribs 01:24, January 27, 2011 (UTC)
