Formatting of subsections

By the way, the order and formatting of subsections in canon articles is inconsistent. For example Future Tense is formatted and placed differently in Thailog and Demona. -- Vaevictis Asmadi 21:37, 13 September 2007 (CDT)

Well spotted. Do you have a preference? I think I'd go for the Demona version personally. -- Supermorff 21:57, 13 September 2007 (CDT)

Contradiction?

I think there's a contradiction somewhere between this statement "Articles in this category may contain non-canonical information, and be included also in the "Apocrypha" category or the "Canon-in-training" category." and the statement in the Characters by canonicity which says "This category lists characters according to their canonical status in the Gargoyles universe. Every character should appear in exactly one of the following subcategories." - Vaevictis Asmadi

Here's an example to clarify: Goliath is a "Canon character". However, the page on Goliath also contains information about his role in The Goliath Chronicles. Therefore, he is also in the category "Apocrypha", but not in the category "Apocrypha characters". Does that make sense?
A character must be strictly defined as exactly one of the following: "Canon character", "Canon-in-training character" or an "Apocrypha character". But since Canon characters may appear outside of canon, and thus their articles may contain non-canonical information, they may also be included in the "Canon-in-training" or "Apocrypha" categories (or both).
Of course, if you think that's a dumb idea, feel free to remove one of the statements. -- Supermorff 03:53, 5 March 2007 (CST)

Ooh now I get it. :) - Vaevictis Asmadi
