Hey guys, been done a while. I've done a lot of thinking about how Robotech is changing, how our coverage needs to change, and how we're going to be able to pull this off.
A while ago, User:Corellian Premier suggested to me that our best bet for future coverage would be to add panels to the tops of pages to indicate other versions of the characters (in the chance of a Live-action Reboot or something of the sort). I not only have come to agree with this, but I think that we need to start separating and sorting our pages more clearly.
Thus, I am going to be suggesting that we totally separate some continuities and stories to other pages. For an example of how we would do this, please see how South Park Archives covers stories. Where they have a "Trivia" tab, we'll have a tab entirely for the canon of the Novelisations.
If you need a better visual cue, check out my sandbox.
There's many positives to this. For one, it allows us to cover stories more naturally. Now, every story ever released will have a place. We don't have to nestle stories into behind the scenes sections. We wont have to disqualify stories as "valid" or decide what level of canon they are. If they don't fix with the main-space, we'll put them in their own page.
This is great for fans of, say, the comics from the 1990s. As more Main canon media comes out, most of those stories would have been eliminated. It also means that we'll get to worry less about contradicting accounts; indeed it's annoying try to pretend that The Sentinels comics and Robotech: Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles are meant to truly co-exist. And as more reboots come out, like the new Titan series or the supposed Live Action Movie, we'll already have a system in place for dealing with that "Alternate reality."
I'm opening this thread to hear from what you guys think, even as this space is basically pretty dead currently. I think this system is going to work out great, and I'd love to hear what you guys think.
