Discussion[edit]

We have 1,300 articles. More than 1,000 pictures. And we still don't have portals. We have way more than we need, so we should have enough for putting these into portals. We could make, like,

What is the benefit of a portal over a category? Because, from what I can tell, it's basically the same. Granted, I don't know a lot about portals, so this is a real question. --Buddy 22:05, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
Categories are sorted by the software, which of course is nice, but that also means that it does not prioritise which article is better than another. The benefit of a portal is that we can control the content to present the user ourselves, so we can present interesting articles for this sort of category, that we, as editors feel the need to present; where as there could be a link to the category stating, "all articles". --SvipTalk 23:59, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
So it basically adds a hierarchical structure to it and allows us to promote more important pages over the more minor ones? Sounds nice. --Buddy 00:02, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
So, it has the go-ahead? — Chris of the Futurama 2 [ discuss | contribute ]
No objections from I. --Buddy 00:54, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

Well, I'm going to disagree with this. I don't like the idea of portals. Sounds too confusing.--I'm Scruffy... the Janitor. 06:04, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

I don't get your argument; portals are to reduce confusion over categories. It would also be a lot nicer to link to a category for characters rather than a category of characters (also, use the name 'characters' rather than 'people'), where we could give a short introduction, some interesting articles, more and so on. --SvipTalk 08:41, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
