Since the quotes sections are now being replaced with Quotes: pages, does anyone see any need to keep a Quotes section on the character pages? Unlike galleries, which give a quick overview of the character's various costumes and forms, the quotes sections were always just whichever quotes we liked the best.

If we end up agreeing that we don't need those sections, does anyone want to take the lead in merging the quotes sections into the quotes pages?

Vanitas Sprite KHBBS.pngHow about we keep the quotes sections with the ten quote limit and have what we feel to be the biggest and more important quotes in that, while in the quotes page we have no real limit and have the not-so-important/big/whatever quotes

I personally think having a Quotes section would be repetitive, so we should merge them. Quotes on Story section and headline are to be kept though.

Also, I noticed some Quotes pages have minor errors like missing dots or using - instead —. If someone can help proof-read them that would be great (I will still help though).

We can definitely keep the quotes that are built into the page; after all, those are pretty much proven to be the most important quotes. The list of ten, in my view, is just the "next up".

Actually, in most if not all of the quotes page from wikia, the "Top ten" quotes are already included. The main decision is if we should keep those examples in the main article or not. I personaly say that we shouldnt, as it would be repetitive. Quotes incorporated into story sections, however, should be obviously kept, as they deserve to ilustrate the moment even more.

FA icon.png I agree with DE's stance. Instead of the quotes sections, I suggest we link to the Quotes page from the navigation menu on the top right of the page.

I say take out the Quotes subsection, since it's now redundant because every character article has (or should have) a dedicated Quotes page. Otherwise I agree with DE in regards with the quotes built into the story sections.

Yeah, I vote "Goodbye" to Quotes sections... with Quotes pages they are almost as useless as the "Trivia" sections.

FA icon.png Sorry, but going off tangent, I find the Trivia sections a bit more useful than the Quotes sections if written properly. One or two pieces of trivia in the main article are far better than ten quotes in the main article if we already have a quotes page for the character. Most trivia bits go into mainspace, but there are some pieces of information which just do not fit within the story, personality or anything else.

We actually discussed this once, if I remember correctly....

And now, back to Quotes.

Firstly, the trivia sections are great to have. Secondly, I think that all Quotes sections should be removed. I mean, they will just be clogging up the Character pages, and we can put a link to the quotes pages at the top of the page anyway. Ah I've said the word pages too many times >.< If we do this, I will be willing to help out with linking pages and such...Just give me a shout...

Keep Trivia, delete Quotes. That's all I have to say on the subject.
