  • Seems like this same thing should apply to aliases and nicknames articles as well. Provided they don't represent a real person too, e.g. Kieran Halcyon. -Fnlayson 08:43, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
    • I dunno about that. I think having alias articles that briefly explain who they refer to and the context of the usage is better than cluttering an actual article with bolded aliases that they might have only used briefly. jSarek 10:44, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
      • I wouldn't call UnuThul an alias. An alias is merely an assumed name. I consider him to be a different character.--Lord OblivionSith holocronSith Emblem 16:22, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
      • OK, as long as it is truly as alias not a near-seperate identity thing like Vader. Drebble (alias) seems to be a good example of an alias article. -Fnlayson 19:38, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
        • Oblivion: Agreed, as can be seen in my vote. I took Finlayson's comment to be in addition to the orginal comment, not a rephrase of it. Finlayson: You've got my meaning. One doesn't need to know that Han Solo once called himself Jenos Idanian to know who Han Solo is, but one does need to know that Anakin Skywalker lived as Darth Vader or that Raynar Thul lived as UnuThul to truly know who they are. jSarek 21:32, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Should we wrap this up? It seems that the majority has spoken. —Mirlen
    • Okay, I will archive this discussion once someone has merged the relevant pages. I would do it myself, but I really don't know anything about the subject matter.–SentryTalk 03:26, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
