Forum: The Situation Room > One and two episode characters

Is it really necessary to have the boxes at the bottom of the page listing appearances at the bottom of the page for one or two episode characters like David Weiss or Joe Prado? All that information is already in the infobox. It seems awfully repetitive.    CANADA DRY    talk    contribs    email   20:35, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Among other things it's a matter of consistency; if we took those away, people would undoubtedly start putting them back to be like every other character's article. It would be more of a mess to pick-and-choose instead of having it for all characters universally. Also I find it a highly convenient visual organizational tool for rapidly seeing what part(s) of a season that character appeared in. Sure, it already says "Day 4 12:00am-1:00am" for Weiss in his infobox, but that doesn't help me determine when in that season his episode was located chronologically (yes, even I can't tell episode names apart among the seasons, all those times are still confusing to me in spite of something like fifteen thousand flippin' edits here). Thirdly, if it ain't broken... ;) Blue Rook  talk  contribs 21:53, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
