List of comic and cartoon characters

Doomed to be incomplete and too unwieldy to be useful; using categories for articles about characters is probably a better solution. —tregoweth 02:55, Feb 9, 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete, a never ending list. There must be thousands of comic and cartoon characters. Not practical to maintain. Megan1967 03:55, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. This has been in VfD before, see Talk:List of comic and cartoon characters. Results were 6 votes to delete, 3 to keep and 3 to merge where appropriate and redirect to list of comic strips. Now about my vote: I cannot see how this can be useful. And I'm affraid people will soon create stubs for every single entry in this list, most of which will end up in VfD anyway. JoaoRicardo 04:16, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Keep for now. Categories are only a substitute if all listed items have articles. (Categories are basically too new to be used effectively as a complete list substitute.) Otherwise, I expect the same old generic anti-list arguments that fail to convince consensus on any substantial list. — Jeff Q 04:23, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Keep (or split). Categories are inadequate substitutes for lists anyway, since merged items can't be members. Kappa 04:32, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Keep. This survived VfD in January 2004 and had far less content then. Xezbeth 06:08, Feb 9, 2005 (UTC)
    • Abstain, turning this into a cat will only work if all names have articles, but I don't believe this will ever be maintained unless a Comics Project is started. Mgm(talk) 09:12, Feb 9, 2005 (UTC)
    • Delete or split apart. Way too unwieldly as-is. The Marvel Universe alone has tens if not hundreds of thousands of characters. Also not much reason to believe it would be useful to anybody... for example, if I wanted to use Wikipedia to find out who was in Dilbert, I'd type in "Dilbert"--I sure as heck wouldn't type in "List of comic and cartoon characters".

    • Delete and split up. Most of this information could be put with the pages about the indiviual comics, and List of comic books and List of comic strips suffice as a place to keep names of comics without articles. Nateji77 18:30, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Split up as encyclopedic but unsustainable. Samaritan 19:29, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Delete and start over with split sections, which will be Wikipedian and helpful. Wyss 20:25, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Keep. --Matteh (talk) 23:11, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Split up into universe-specific sub-lists. Most already exist, I believe. humblefool® 23:34, 9 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • I'd suggest further splitting it up into newspaper cartoon characters, TV cartoon characters, characters in animated films, etc. --Idont Havaname 04:48, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Delete / split. Mikkalai 07:09, 10 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • And a strange development: Anon user, a/k/a the Cartoon Vandal, attempted to move the page via cutting-and-pasting to List of cartoon and comic characters. —tregoweth 05:28, Feb 12, 2005 (UTC)
    • Delete. Absolutely ridiculous! Unwieldly, unmaintainable, unhelpful, uninformative, and unappealing. A prime example of how not to use a list. Indrian 19:00, Feb 12, 2005 (UTC)
    • Delete. This could be feasible if it was split up. One huge list is not helpful at all. Carrp Talk 03:47, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)
    • Delete. We have categories for this. —Lowellian (talk) 12:27, Feb 14, 2005 (UTC)
