The character sections for certain worlds are getting quite huge with how we're doing it now. The way they should be ordered is also unclear for most people unless they've read this thread. I believe the wiki would benefit from dividing the character section into three sub-sections: natives, immigrants, and visitors. That way it'd be easier for the editors to understand what characters should be added and in where. It would also be easier for readers who aren't familiar with the wiki's policies to understand the character section. Anyone want to voice their opinion on this suggestion? - JTD95 (talk) 20:29, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

I don't think that would make it easier for editors. In fact it would make it harder since we would need to decide what counts as native, immigrant, and visitor. TheSilentHero 22:06, 15 February 2020 (UTC)
I don't think it would be that hard. Below I have a suggested version of how to handle Twilight Town. Take Xion for an example. She would be listed as a visitor for her appearance in Days with the proper tag to accompany her, and then she's listed as an immigrant for hear appearance in KH3. I also realized that Alice might be a problem but as I see it we could compare her to Wendy; Wendy might not be from the place named Neverland, but she is from a version of England that exists with in the world of Neverland, thus Wendy is a native from that world.





The reason I advocate this is because as it is now it looks quite messy having so many characters in the character section without any good explanation for their relevance to that world. - JTD95 (talk) 22:27, 15 February 2020 (UTC)
What exactly do you count as immigrant? Why is Riku an immigrant? Or Merlin? Can HDL and Scrooge be considered immigrants when they travel to different worlds every game? Also, if you're putting characters in multiple sections, won't the section just become longer? I think the main reason the current character section for Twilight Town is so cramped is because all the NPC's are listed as well, which take up almost two rows. We should probably put those somewhere else, especially if we ever get the KH3 NPC models. TheSilentHero 18:12, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
Yeah I can see it causing more trouble than it solves others. Scratch that idea. As for moving the NPCs, could we make an NPC section between the character and enemy ones? If so who would qualify as an NPC? Would the the The Struggle tournament sponsor be considered one despite him having a speaking role? What about Wallance and Wantz? They're only shopkeepers but are still given names. Would Ariel's sisters be considered NPCs seeing as they barely appear, never speak, and have no journal entries? What about the Dolphin you ride on in KH1? It's an intractable character but so are many of the towns people in Twilight Town that are connected to mini-games. Apologies for bombarding you with all these questions. Just trying to determine what qualifies for an NPC and what doesn't. - JTD95 (talk) 20:27, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
After some thought, I think I came up with a good idea for what qualifies as NPC or not: having a page on the wiki. All important characters, minor characters, and even manga-exclusive characters have pages. If they don't have a page, they're not noteworthy, so they can be seen as NPC's. And if we think a character shouldn't be an NPC (like the Struggle Tournament guy, for example), we simply create a page for them and move them back to the main character section.

Yeah that’s brilliant! - JTD95 (talk) 17:26, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
