Forum: The Situation Room > Greater appreciation of crew members on episode pages

I think its unfair that so much attention is given to cast on the episode pages with no reference to the crew that has worked on it (beyond writer and director). For example, a different editor works on each episode, and they at least should be included with the writer and director in the sidebar in my opinion. Also, I think there should be a link to the appropriate section of the 24 production staff page to each individual episode to acknowledge that the cast are not the only important part of the production. --SignorSimon (talk/contribs/email) 15:11, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

If you can get accurate lists transcribed from each episode's credits for the crew, this would be excellent. It should probably be in two or three columns though; one long column for the crew would make the episode pages look way too long and rather silly.

That sounds great! The crew remains pretty much the same for most episodes of each season, bar the editor, writer and director. I'm pretty sure the list we have now is accurate (except for the few ones that are missing that I plan to go and sort out this weekend). --SignorSimon (talk/contribs/email) 23:39, March 12, 2010 (UTC)
I've done a tester of what I think looks good here. See what you think and make changes as you feel appropriate! Then we can start putting it on pages. FYI, I watched the episode's credits to make sure it was all correct. --SignorSimon (talk/contribs/email) 00:45, March 13, 2010 (UTC)
I don't think it's an issue of appreciation, but rather that there are a LOT of people involved behind the scenes of each episode and for the most part there aren't many changes between episodes. I like the idea, but I would suggest putting it behind a show/hide button like on this page, so readers have the option to skip over it. --Pyramidhead 05:26, March 13, 2010 (UTC)
But there's nothing like as many people as that, and with it split into 3 sections like it is it really doesn't take up that much room. As a matter of fact its probably less room in terms of height of the page than cast members. --SignorSimon (talk/contribs/email) 10:11, March 13, 2010 (UTC)
I think it really adds a sense of completeness to the Wiki and I really commend Simon for the huge effort of making articles for so many crew members. However, I do think that it's something that should have some sort of show/hide or collapsible option. Thief12 20:08, March 15, 2010 (UTC)
