I have a few issues or concerns with the information we add to the infobox/sidebars. First, I love how they work and how cool it is to see a quick profile of most of the characters. However, I have some slight issues with how we use some of the fields. For example:

  • Nationality This issue was discussed previously with other editors, but overall, my concern is that sometimes it seems speculative how we decide what nationality to include. It's not necessarily this arbitrary, but to illustrate it, sometimes it's as if we just thought "He speaks English? American", and so on. Overall, I think it should be used primarily for articles were the nationality is discussed or relevant within the show.
  • Residence This is another one I have minor issues with. Sometimes it seems we add the address of any place or home we saw the character in during the episode, regardless of whether he lived there or not, which also makes it a bit speculative. Recent examples, some of Basher's men that were all "living" in West Ealing, or Shepherd and his soldiers that were all "living" at the Kajaki Province. Thief12 (talk) 16:50, May 13, 2014 (UTC)

Minor issues, but I think they are worth discussing. Thief12 (talk) 16:50, May 13, 2014 (UTC)
