Per renchamp's recommendation, I'm here to propose that pages be added for the following characters:

  • Tenzin
  • Bolin
  • Mako
  • Asami Sato
  • Lin Bei-Fong

Reason: All of these characters feature in Dark Horse's Legend of Korra art books same as Korra herself, and the Avatar does already have a page on this site along with Vaatu, Raava, Wan, and Amon. Thus, I feel that pages for the other main characters in the series (all of whom appear in the aforementioned art books) should be made.

@renchamp: Very well. Can I make submissions here, or should I do it someplace else? And if so, where?

@shroudofsorrow: Don't get snarky. We are still the ones who approve your additions. As Pika said, it is still a gray area. Take it easy and add only the characters in the books. I personally hate the idea of art books justifying a non-comic character on the wiki.

Not being snarky at all. Simply pointing out how if some main characters are acceptable as far as being added to this site goes, then by that logic the other main characters should be allowed pages too. My pointing that out is not being snarky and I don't appreciate being accused of such.

@shroudofsorrow: try to stick with just the main cast for now then, if a comic does come out then it can be expanded upon on an as appears basis but there is no rush

Thing is though, I can't just add a page on my own power. Any page I try to create needs to be approved first. I already made a submission for a character, and it was rejected. Granted, you seem to be giving me the go-ahead now, but even so I would actually feel more comfortable if someone with a bit more authority added those pages, since that way I know they'll be added without risk of being rejected again. I mean again, I seem to have already gotten approval, so why not just add the pages now?

If you are that gung ho to edit those character pages and you don't like how we handle non-comic characters on a comic site then the Korra/Avatar wikia is freely available for you to edit.

Not really seeing what the need for that above statement is. I'm simply suggesting that character pages be added and providing a rationale for why. There's no need to get defensive.

@pikahyper: Actually I do personally own them, and I'm sorry but if pages for some of the characters are acceptable, then there's no reason to not make pages for the other main characters in that art book, not the least of which would include Tenzin, Bolin, Mako, Asami Sato, and Lin Bei-Fong.

@pikahyper: So art books DO count. I thought so. Well, numerous characters in those art books do not have pages here, and I feel that should be changed forthwith.

@renchamp: Thing is though, all of the characters I just listed I have not seen make any comic book appearances. And yet, they have pages on this site.

Yes, I would like to ask about adding some pages for characters from Legend of Korra. I find it strange that we have pages for Korra, Amon, Wan, Raava, and Vaatu, but no pages for anyone else. Personally, I feel like pages for the other main characters are warranted if we're allowing pages for those characters I described above.

So apparently ordered lists may only have 100 items on them. I think this is a silly restriction that makes it impossible to have a nice ordered list of any serious length, and there's really no good reason to maintain this restriction. Is there any way it can be removed so we can start having ordered lists without the number limit again?

@penderor: I hate Vitiate but I might make a thread for him eventually.

Nice thread. Though I have to ask: wouldn't the "his lightsaber skills are unparalleled" bit be inaccurate in view of Palpatine stalemated him when amped and how Yoda is factually better than him?

Thanks, and yes, it's hyperbole.

Thought so. In which case I'd remove that bit from the respect thread if possible, especially when it's not consistent with the respect thread saying he's second to Yoda.
