- Dracon Family -- Does anyone else think New York's biggest crime syndicate deserves it's own page and category, or do you guys think the Tony Dracon and Organised crime pages pretty much cover everything relevent? -- Algernon 08:01, 22 October 2009 (CDT)
- Gargoyle Way -- We hear this phrase a lot to mean a lot of different things. Maybe someday we can cook up a page talking about the gargoyle code (parenting, banishing, leader/second, all that) Mabe it could help split up the gargoyles page more, as I did when I made clan. -- Matt 16:44, 1 January 2008 (CST)
- I would rather have a series of interconnected pages, like Gargoyle, Gargoyle culture (which would link out to, e.g. Clan and Wind Ceremony), Gargoyle biology (which would link out to, e.g. Egg), and maybe even Gargoyle history or similar. We can keep some information (mostly canon) in the main article and then direct people wherever they want to go. Gargoyle Way can redirect to Gargoyle culture. We might even be able to merge some info back into more general articles from clan and egg and whatever else. To keep in line with the archives at Ask Greg, gargoyle culture could also be called gargoyle customs. ... Huh. That seems kinda complicated when I write it all out. -- Supermorff 17:21, 14 January 2008 (CST)
- Construction Worker -- Another recurring character without a page. Where there any others we have not done yet? -- Matt 17:15, 23 January 2008 (CST)
- From Vendettas and Hunter's Moon 1. Any other appearances? -- Supermorff 15:10, 1 February 2008 (CST)
- Executive Assistant -- Owen Burnett, Preston Vogel, Glasses, Shari, Robyn Correy... Not sure if this is a dumb idea or not, but I thought I'd put it out there for discussion. Feel free to totally reject this one. -- Matt
- You mean the bit at the end of an episode where Xanatos reveals that he was behind everything that happened (assuming that wasn't already obvious) and points out how even though the gargoyles foiled his plan or apparent plan, it's all good because he learned something that will make him more awesome? Does that really need its own entry or can we just cover it in the David Xanatos article? -- Demonskrye 06:15, 10 July 2008 (CDT)
- Yeah, one of them things. The problem with putting it in the Xanatos article itself is that Xanatos is an in-universe canon character, whereas the Xanatos tag is an out-of-universe production... thing. Besides, Thailog sometimes has his own "Xanatos tags" as well. -- Supermorff 06:45, 10 July 2008 (CDT)
- I think a "Behind the Scenes" section would cover it. And we could put an additional link to Xanatos in Thailog's Behind the Scenes section when talking about his penchant for similar speeches. -- Demonskrye 07:28, 10 July 2008 (CDT)
- Space-Spawn War or Galactic War... something to describe the conflict between the Space-Spawn, the N'Kai and the unknown third race.
- I think we should consult Greg to find out if he has a name for this war or at least a placeholder name. -- Matt 12:23, 12 October 2008 (CDT)
- Good plan. I wonder if the involved races have different names for it? -- Supermorff
- Since we now have articles for two unmade stories ("The Weird Macbeth" and "Hobgoblin of Little Minds"), how about a page for the multi-trickster story (about which we know quite a bit, but not the title). -- Supermorff 04:40, 5 December 2010 (CST)
- Touchstone Live-Action Film - Writers attached to the project, some of the directions they were going in (off the top of my head: Macbeth being ruler of Wyvern, Othello sleeping for a thousand years and dying in modern day to be resurrected as Coldstone in the sequel, Lexington being renamed Alex), etc. -- Supermorff
- A handful of references to help with this: . -- Supermorff 10:50, 31 January 2009 (CST)
- Also an interview with Michael Reaves:  -- Supermorff 13:38, 31 January 2009 (CST)
- I was just thinking. We have aircraft and exo-frame pages. Shouldn't we have one for weapons? DTaina 21:46, 18 January 2009 (CST)
- Should the rain of flaming arrows get its own article? It's just too cool not to have one. DTaina 13:08, 25 August 2009 (CDT)
- I think it should go on the Grimorum page. I've been meaning to do a major overhaul of the Grimorum page for a while now. When I do, I could definitly use the rain of arrows pic. -- Matt 14:21, 25 August 2009 (CDT)
- Could the other Gargoyles Season 1 (VHS) recieve their own page? I wouldn't mind creating the page myself (Synopsis and Amazon link), but I'm not sure if you have to be at a higher editor position to create a page. Also should each VHS tape get it's own page or have a single page with synopsis for each four volumes?
- Theseus: Even though he's barely mentioned in canon, I'm still kinda surprised that this page hasn't been created yet. One of Greg Weisman's favorite characters, and there's more than one rambling dedicated to the guy (, , , ) . . . plus, he killed Taurus's ancestor, the Minotaur. (Greg W. also has a caveat about introducing Theseus here , but I still think a page for him couldn't hurt) ;) -- Pheon 06:44, 6 December 2010 (CDT)
- The Disney Afternoon: with the latest boom of Disney Afternoon comics with, well, BOOM! Studios (as well as those Gargoyles easter eggs in the occasional issue), we could use the page . . . plus, Darkwing Duck already links to it ;) --Pheon 21:30, 26 March 2011 (CDT)
- Una's Sleep Spell I noticed that the spell that Una used against Goliath, Elisa, Angela, and Bronx has no listing anywhere. This surprised me, becasue I think it's similar to the Sleep Spell Griffinwyrm7 00:50, 26 May 2011 (PDT)
Pages in need of expansion
Special:Shortpages contains an automatically-generated list of pages with the least information, but users can also list pages to be expanded here.
- Gargoyles (TV series) - addition of a History section, per Talk:Gargoyles (TV series)
- Gargoyles (SLG comics)
- Humans -- Talent for invention and technology. Make too much noise (and constantly modify their environment) to sense the biorhythms. Probably invented naming. History with a focus on their relations with other races. -- Vaevictis Asmadi 10:07, 24 December 2007 (CST)
- Glasses - Some explanation of what Glasses did as Dracon's right-hand man. His responsibilities, etc. -- Supermorff
- Kenner Action Figures
Here, users can list articles that they believe could be improved by the inclusion of appropriate images.
- London Street Thugs -- Griffinwyrm7 has requested a picture of the London Street Thugs on their page.
- Yeah, there's a pan of it but I haven't finished it yet. DTaina 01:44, 10 February 2009 (CST)
- Demona's Clan needs an updated picture (collage?) with new clan members shown in the TimeDancer comic arc. -- Litwolf 25 August 2009
- Old Pog could use another pic of him not in his stone form, although this may require someone to donate a model sheet or a drawing not used in the comic. -- Supermorff 10:22, 12 December 2010 (CST)
- This is an unusual one, does anybody have any better pics of "Gargoyle" from W.I.T.C.H.? The one I have isn't that great. Ideally I'd like one from season 2 where he got that new lava hand from Nerissa. --Algernon 16:55, 13 August 2010 (CDT)
- A general thought, but it'd be awesome if we eventually found images for a lot of the old various merchandise, like the VHS's, books, and posters (even the ALA READ poster). No doubt, there's probably a few dedicated editors taking on this endeavor, but I thought it couldn't hurt to add the post . . . for officialness-sake :) --Pheon 21:30, 26 March 2011 (CDT)
- Not sure if its something you might already have/in-the-works, DTaina, but I was thinking that a pan of the logo on Fortress-1 (from "Awakening, Part Five" I think) would be nice for the Cyberbiotics page. It might not be the official company logo for Cyberbiotics, but I think the page could use a cool pan :) --Pheon 10:09, 31 October 2011 (PDT)
