Discussion[edit]

I know I am bringing this up again, but a concern have been raising in my mind, as have been pointed out by the last time we ran this around here. The issue was that with my new specification of naming Steve Castle a secondary character, because of his importance in "Future Stock", despite only appearing once, this may spark a lot of subjective opinions on who is secondary and who is tertiary.

Therefore I am suggestion splitting secondary characters up in 3:

Major secondary characters
Major secondary characters are characters that are pretty close to actually being primary characters, but for a specific number of reasons aren't. Examples of these characters include Zapp Brannigan, Kif Kroker and Mom.
One-time secondary characters
One-time secondary characters are characters playing a major importance in one single episode/film/comic, but either unknown later or not appearing at all (possibly because of death). Examples these characters include Steve Castle, The Zookeeper and Nudar.
Secondary characters
The ungrouped mass.

This is great idea like having Kif Zapp Brannigan and Mom Walt Larry and Igner as secondary main characters

I'm not sure, but is there any way to bring it to a vote? Maybe the welcoming committee can send a message to all users, or a link for the vote can be put up on the main page. Any thoughts? (Harq al ada (talk) 12:38, 12 October 2013 (CEST))

I think that's unnecessary, but you can ask Svip if he still thinks that splitting secondary characters is a good idea. Sanfazer (talk) 18:40, 12 October 2013 (CEST).
