Welcome to this Forum Page

We recently changed the "Appearances" section to "Spottings" to indicate what episodes a character is present in. This was done to avoid confusion with "Physical appearance" (which was changed to "Appearance").

I personally am not too keen on "Spottings". Tuckyd points out that it goes with the theme of the show in general (I agree). I feel "Episodes" might be clearer however. What think you all? Any other ideas?


I'd just keep appearances, no one is going to riot over it and other wikias use appearance and physical appearance at the same time. TheHeartlessHero

Physical Appearance does not describe the appearance section, appearance and appearances are comtletely different things. To try to differentiate it I suggest we use spottings instead of appearances for two reasons 1. It fits with the theme of the story (mystery-like) and 2. It will create less confusion with the appearance section. Tuckyd! Says Hi 12:37, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

I'm not an admin but I'd like to offer some input; spottings may be a good term to use but keep in mind that, even though it is a word by definition, a lot of browsers show that it's spelled incorrectly. A little off-topic but it could lead to some confusion. o-o --TDIFan13 (My Talk and My Contributions) 04:35, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

Would sightings work better? Tuckyd! Says Hi 13:54, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

Why don't we just say Present in and then list the episodes? JAZ!!! [Talk to me] 14:45, August 24, 2012 (UTC)

Appearances are better than spottings--Darthwatch789 22:43, August 27, 2012 (UTC)

Well, I wouldn't call appearances "better than" spottings. --Puffleboy25 is awesome 12:09, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

I agree with Tuckyd. Sightings would work better. Dragonite23 16:24, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

So are we all agreed on sightings? --Tuckyd! Says Hi 14:23, August 30, 2012 (UTC)

I say we keep it at 'Spottings'. -- User:Feey1 I am FEEY1. Speak to me! 00:50, August 31, 2012 (UTC)
