Umm, do we really need all this real world info and links? Since this is a Gargoyles Wiki, lets just include the Gargoyles related stuff and provide a link to the Wikipedia entry ala Belvedere Castle etc. --Matt

While the viewer's here, why not provide some basic information? Greg's put no small effort to base the Gargoyles Universe in the real world, the least we can do is show the real world some respect.--AlexChec 13:37, 20 May 2007 (CDT)

If that is the case then we may as well not have a GargWiki at all and just put all this information on the regular Wikipedia site. I mean, what are you gonna copy and paste every Wikipedia article that relates to anything seen in gargoyles over to GargWiki? This seems silly. Let's keep this site based on Gargoyles and provide links to Wikipedia if more real world information exists! --Matt

Yes, because the Praying Gargoyle, New Olympus, and the real real history of Macbeth would fit so well in Wikipedia.

What I've done is hardly cut and paste Wikipedia, simply glossed over what the real world settings are, and provided place holder links in the event that they should make appearances in future issues. I'm not rushing out to make a link detailing ECOSOC or Washington, D.C., unless, for some reason, Greg introduces them in a comic, in which case the pages can be added. It doesn't hurt anything to have summaries of the real world settings where Gargoyles employs said settings.--AlexChec 13:50, 20 May 2007 (CDT)

What really bothers me is all the dead end links all over the place. GargWiki doesn't currently need a link for [[Axis powers]], [[League of Nations]], [[San Francisco]], [[Harry Truman]], etc. These are pointless. I don't mind the Real World History section on any entry, though I do feel it should be kept short and more detailed information could be provided via a link to the Wikipedia entry. All the pointless links are exactly that, pointless. --Matt

I've removed most of the red links. I've left some behind, if I thought they're likely to become relevant in the future. Others, if they do become relevant, can always be added again at a later date. -- Supermorff 05:57, 21 May 2007 (CDT)
Bless You. I can live with that. --Matt


I suggest we add this to the Canon-in-Training category. - Vaevictis Asmadi 21:36, 20 May 2007 (CDT)
