  • Yes, there are unseen staff members who have pages. Some unseen staff members and patients (there's a page for unseen patients, too) have enough information known about them to warrant their own pages, but most do not.

    I will also note that YOU created the Norman McCale page.

    • I did create the Norman McCale page and it has stood there for quite some time now. And only NOW it's being deleted?

    • I'm a human being. I make mistakes. I forget things. When you created the page, it didn't register with me that he was an unseen character. Back in March, Tooniee and I had a discussion about unseen characters, which led to me creating the unseen staff and unseen patients pages. And yes, we haven't used them as much as they were meant to be used. But that's not because they weren't meant to be used. It's because I'm a human being and I forgot to keep updating those pages.

  • If you're making a series of edits to the same page, it's helpful if you do them all as one edit so that it doesn't clog up the recent activity with a dozen edits to different sections of the same page.

  • But he didn't indirectly call her that, if I recall correctly. He said, "I know a retinal-vitreous surgeon." Or said yes in response to a question of whether or not he did. That's not indirect at all, but it is incorrect, as the correct wording is inverted.

    • I extended the note to include Mark's incorrect dialogue.

      Whether direct or indirect, we could remove that portion as just stated that Mark referred as opposed to Mark directly/indrectly if that's more satisfactory to you.

    • It's fine.

  • Can you please stop adding countless categories to pages while they're not necessary, only to remove them a minute later? I'm guessing this is about getting badges, but this is not the way to do that.

    • Sure. I didn't think there would be an issue as all the categories except the correct ones remain and they're removed the next minute, but okay. I'll stop.

    • The system of the badges is to reward people for the edits they make. It can't be a goal to make edits just to obtain the badges.

      Thanks for understanding! :)

  • Hey Ace,

    I just want to take a moment, in light of some recent events, to apologize to you for my behavior when you first joined this wiki. When you first came here and started making such bold edits, I felt threatened and when I feel threatened, I tend to get irrationally defensive. And I took that out on you, which wasn't fair.

    Having now experienced a similar situation from the other side, I can see how my actions were hurtful and unnecessary. I do appreciate your continued efforst to improve the wiki in the best way you can and I'll try to keep my ego in check better in the future.

    -Alida

    • Well in that case....

      I LOVED the flashbacks. Not that I'm condoning the cheating, but now knowing Arizona lost a baby in addition to losing a leg made me understand why cheating with Lauren was more likely. I wonder if Shonda knew of this before and that's why season 9 ended with infidelity.

        Loading editor
    • I doubt it a little. I think that maybe Shonda and the other writers were a little surprised by all the reactions that Arizona cheating because she lost a leg a year ago while everything seemed fine and so on. Maybe they wanted to create another reason to make it seem more realistic, I don't know. So far I'm loving the episode though!

  • Was that in this week's episode? I clearly missed a lot. I really need to re-watch it.

    • It wasn't this week's. It was Map of You. I'm re-watching it to see anything I missed. When Evans was talking to Alex, during the guitar scene, he was telling a story about how his kid (e.g. Nicky) had to see a pediatric surgeon because he fed Nicky strawberries. This resulted in an allergic episode. Alex thought the story was about him since he didn't realize it was about Nicky until after the story was told and after the picture was shown. Alex must have a strawberry allergy, otherwise he would not have thought the story was about him.

  • Just so you know, the stub category and template are for when there's a significant amount of information to know about the person. A page doesn't need it simply because it's short. Pages can be complete or mostly complete even if they're short.

      Loading editor
    • Ohh.. I guess it's short of hard for me to judge what's "significant". Like I feel like with Fincher, Goodwin, and Carlsmith, they're complete, but because it didn't look all that complete to me, I just added the stubs category.

        Loading editor
    • Also like medical schools and hospitals that aren't the main hospitals: they're as complete as far as the show goes, should they have stubs?

        Loading editor
    • No page can ever really be labeled complete. The Meredith Grey page is literally the second-longest page on this whole wiki and there's still more to add to it. And more information will come.

      Stub is really (in my mind) for pages where there are serious, egregious gaps in information. Like something a reasonable fan could sit down and find more than one way to improve. Like if the Seattle Grace Hospital page just said, "Seattle Grace Hospital is a hospital in Seattle." That would be a stub. But now, it has more information about what it is, who has worked there, etc.. I know significant is subjective. It's really a judgement call, but we want to have as few pages in the stubs category as possible. Eventually, I'd like to have none. Just because a page is not a stub does not mean that that page is in any way complete. Like the above example, new information is being added (even things the show has already established and no one ever thought to add) to pages daily.

    • Oh, I missed your second comment. Yeah, if they're complete as far as the show is concerned, they don't need the stub category.

    • You're pretty awesome, just by the way. How do you know so much about the medical system?!?! It's amazing.

    • Awe! Thank you. I'm a huge surgical junkie. I considered a career as a peds surgeon, so that's why I know so much about residencies, fellowships, ULSME, board certs, and all that jazz.

      I'm also a big ol' nerd lol.

    • That's awesome. I think that maybe, at least for now, I want to be a surgeon, but alas I'm not quite old enough yet to be actively pursuing such a career. :)
