I would like to bring this up one last time before I put it up for official voting. Nobody seems to be taking this seriously, and it's going to suck when they get voted in when you haven't read them. Please take 5 minutes to go over these real quick and voice your opinion on the topic. You can discuss it here or on the talk page.
I understand that I'm new to the site, but I AM a user, and do have a voice, so allow me to use it.
Powers and Abilities could easily be rolled into one topic.
The Appearance section of the Characters topic seems a moot point if at least 2 pictures are required as well.
well of course you can speak. You are a user here afterall. Anyone who denies you that needs to be slapped.
I suppose by "powers and abilities" he means "powers and attacks". Powers can describe what you can do, while attacks is defining what... well, attacks he can do. Kinda like saying Pikachu uses electricity, and his attacks are this, that and the other.
As for appearance, a picture cannot display everything. A character with clothing on may conceal other characteristics such as a scar, a tattoo, or whatever. A description of appearance can be far more in depth and revealing than a single picture. But I agree that having two pictures is too much.
EDIT: rereading it, the two pictures is ONLY if you decide to include a gallery in that article. It's an optional thing.
Powers and Abilities COULD be rolled into one yes. However I'm not going to do that. They are separate in order to give everyone more freedom to do whatever they want. Everyone has different opinions on what these words mean. Let's leave it to each user.
