Slash[edit]

As you guys probably know, when referring to more than one episode at the same time we cannot use this template. Therefore, we're forced to do it "the classical way" (1ACV01, 2ACV02), and I've noticed most people, including me, tend to use the comma. With the creation of this new account, however, I've decided to start the 2nd Devolution Revolution: I'm going for the slash (1ACV01/2ACV02)! Which looks much better IMO. They're obviously two different signals, with slightly different meanings, but I don't think that's going to be a problem. Anyone have any objections? (Man, I'm so superficial!)

You are wrong, the different meanings is a problem. A slash would mean that said occurrence appears in 1ACV01 or 2ACV02, while what we are going for is what's happening in both. Aki 01:55, 5 January 2011 (CET)
Jeez, I realise now how grouchy I sounded there. I'm just concerned with preserving the sanctity of the slash sign, I guess. Anyways, I buckled down and made a seperate template for referencing multiple episodes! Aki 02:04, 5 January 2011 (CET)
Okay. It seems my beloved slash is doomed to a life of loneliness, but that's alright. Also, good job with Et2. Just a few questions: Can we call it something else? Like Met, multiple Et? And, do we have categories for templates? That would save us that huge See also section. Sanfazer 19:09, 5 January 2011 (CET)
Sorry for the late reply, but I have been taking a break from The Infosphere (as well as most of my social and Internet life), trying to finish off my novel. When something important comes up, please notify me in my talk page and I'll definitely see it within a couple of days at the most.
Another name sounds pointless to me, but I don't argue against it either. If you decide on it and at least one more agree, I'm up for it. Category for templates does indeed sound like a good idea. Aki 20:36, 10 January 2011 (CET)
About the new name, yeah, I know. I just wanted the template to have one I liked better, and thought of telling you, giving it a shot. Maybe Net (N Et, numerous Et) Anyone supporting this? (About the category, I'll look into it.) Sanfazer 20:50, 11 January 2011 (CET)
Also, it's good to have you back! Sanfazer 20:51, 11 January 2011 (CET)
That's fine by me if you fix the changes, updating all articles with the new template name. Thanks. :) Aki 00:29, 12 January 2011 (CET)
No problem. I guess it's gonna be an hour of boredom, but what the hell, right? It'll just be another one. At any rate, I'm glad I'm doing this. Sanfazer 16:42, 12 January 2011 (CET)
Okay, I did it. This template, the Season 6 article, and all 72 episode categories for the original run were updated. Also, I feel silly I've just now realised the Net template only works for referencing 2 episodes. Can it be changed in order to make it possible to reference more? The other categories, whose titles contain the word references, are now useless. Would you please delete them? Here's the full list. Sanfazer 17:54, 12 January 2011 (CET)
