A suggestion for improvement to the wiki

Here's another friendly suggestion for improving the template boxes which appear at the end of character pages:

At the moment, these boxes list every episode in which that character is given a flashback/forward etc of any description. In cases where episodes are shared by many characters, this leads to highly clogged-up pages. This is a particular problem for Jack, Kate, Sayid, Locke, Sawyer, Hurley, and Jin/Sun to an extent. Towards the end of the series more and more episodes forwent centricity and focused on the group as a whole.

So what I'm proposing is a separation between centric episodes proper, which undeniably revolved around the character in question, and just flashback episodes. Here's a few examples:


Centric: Jacob

Flashback: Kate, Sawyer etc. (everyone else basically)

and for characters:


Centric: Pilot part 1, White rabbit, All the best cowboys, Do no harm, Man of science man of faith, The hunting party, A tale of two cities, Stranger in a strange land, Through the looking glass 1 & 2, Something Nice Back Home, 316, Lighthouse, The Candidate

Other Flashback: Exodus, There's No Place Like Home 1 & 2, The Incident, LAX, The Last Recruit, What They Died For, The End

This would sort out those episodes which really revolve around one person, and would count as centric-less those episodes which are shared by many (more than two) or none at all. I haven't counted mobisodes into this, as I haven't really made my mind up about them.

Any thoughts fellow Lostpedians?
