Criteria

Just curious: what are the criteria for being listed in this nav?  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  22:00, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

  • Well they must be introduced because while Ilana, Caesar, Nadia are listed, Carmen Reyes and Diane Janssen are not, even though they have more episodes than them. --Orhan94 19:49, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

How cluttered would it get to list any character with more than three credited appearances?  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  20:10, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

  • A lot I guess. Maybe 3 in one season or 5 in a span of multiple seasons.--Orhan94 20:56, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Perhaps both of those would be desirable. Then we could stick to important supporting characters like Alex, Rousseau, and Bernard, and leave out people like Arzt and Abaddon who are less important. Perhaps we have a character by character vote for this. Illyrias Acolyte 21:49, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
  • 6 or more episodes, actually on the Island, actually important. How's that sound? --Pyramidhead 07:13, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
    • Penny's never been on the Island, so you must think she's not important. This should be six or more appearances (and important to the plot, thus leaving out people who are unimportant like Scott and Steve) as the only criteria; else this template is completely useless and should be deleted from Lostpedia. --Golden Monkey 13:01, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
      • I like the sound of that. However, I would move that we keep supporting characters who do not necessarily meet the criteria but are currently alive (like Ilana and possibly Caesar) for reference. Then, if they die without appearing in six episodes, we can just eliminate them from the list. Illyrias Acolyte 14:58, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
        • I think that wouldn't work fine because it will over-flood this template with characters that are, as of season 5, one or two appearance away from this template such as Carmen, Nadia, Bram, Cassidy, Diane and Carole. And after a second look at this template death didn't stop most of them from appearing, as Danielle, Keamy, Tom, Ethan, Christian, Mars, Naomi, Phil, Radzinsky and Roger all continued/stared recurring after their deaths. --Orhan94 10:06, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
        • I've changed my mind and completely forgotten this page even existed. Sorry. I like the layout/system we have now. Illyrias Acolyte 13:45, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Supporting Characters Page

On the actual supporting characters page, there are a lot more people populating the list. I suggest we create a separate page for the characters in this nav, such as Secondary Characters perhaps? 01lander 06:51, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Jacob's Nemesis

He should be on here. He's got enough appearances, and if he's not on the main character page, he should go somewhere. Illyrias Acolyte 00:41, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Last names

... Makes the nav way too cluttered. Removing them for now.  Jimbo the Tubby  talk  contributions  20:48, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Speaking of, love the new organization system, but should we organize them by last name instead? Illyrias Acolyte 00:44, 7 August 2009 (UTC)
