  • Ok, hear me out. I belive we need smaller and biger categories.

    Firstly, I belive categories like, "Characters", "Places and Locations" ect, should contain all characters/places and not categories, firstly becouse lots of them appear in more than one thing (and some in kinds of things that doesn't have specific category), and becouse simply they are specific elements of the universe, that deserve one big place to include them.

    And about smaller categories, they are verry useful, becouse they show small group of things that are connected to eachover, like "police officers and security", "medics", "Leak Less" ect. Also, I want to say I understand that many kids makes lots of categories that are really useless (lets say for example "red cars") but we shouldn't delete actually useful categories in the way. And since we are on the topic, I don't really like the nationality categories. I don't personally like that world is putting people into the categories base on their place of origin and also from the point of cartoon, there's no big reason to actually add those, since beside occasionally some car having flag of the country on World Grand Prix, most background characters aren't confirmed to have any nationality, nor nether of those have much impact to anything.

    And also, I personally think we could go for more Wikipedia or Wookiepedia-like article construction that:

    • briefly depicts said character in encyclopedic style, showing characters profession ect
    • history that tells the history of character is style of biography rather than what happened in each movie (In cars 3 character stood in the background in that one scene and was compliantly forgettable). So it should show characters life story starting of his backstory presented in Car Finder/Meet the Cars and other sources, then event that were shown in the movies. We also could have sections like "Non-canonical appearances" (or "Appearances in video games/Cars Toons/comics" that presents non-canonical appearances of the character.
    • it should depict character look as and vehicle model as different section rather than right after his name. Its not that important to be put right after first sentence of the character and it looks more professional when it has its own section.
    • Official bios would look better if it actually mention source at the back of it rather that mention it in references.
    • Next to appearances we could list "Sources" as a section to mention encyclopedic/biographic sources that characters appears in that don't actually present the story but gave as information about characters (for example "Car Finder" or "Meet the Cars"). This is how Wikipedia and Wookieepidia do it and in my opinion it works better. Firstly becouse it point that that character appeared in that, and secondly because it allows to post information said in that without putting references all over the place.

    So, those are a few things that in my opinion could be changed about how we structure the articles. What do you think.

    • Thank you. I'm more than happy hearing your approval of the changes :) Also, I understand your reasoning about the categories and how hard it is to deal with bunch of young editors making mess with them. Despite that I still relive that bigger categories such as "Racing cars" ect should be left alone because you simply can't put all characters into separate categories such as "Piston Cup racers" since not all characters were confirmed to take part in any racing competitions.

    • I see. Well, it's gonna take a while for me to get used to those changes anyway, because I've normally edited on wikis using out-of-universe information.

  • Are you going to edit a wiki on Polish cars Wiki or are you already abandoning it?

    • Probably not right now. Maybe just to add links to international wikis and pictures, but I'm not really good at translating into Polish.

  • I have just found out that books like Cars Origins ("Chasing Storm", "Cruz Control" and "Struck by Lightning") and probably other books as well, contain backstories of the characters (plus planty of original new characters). I think it would be nice to implement informations from them into this wiki.

    • Sure, go ahead. After all, it's meant to cover all official information about Cars, even from books.

  • According to that page, the voices of the WGP racers in the Cars 2 VG that don't speak in the movie are:

    Max Schnell - Andre Sogliuzzo

    Miguel Camino - John Molerio

    Raoul ÇaRoule - Dave Boat

    Shu Todoroki - Paul Nakauchi

    Carla Veloso - Jossara Jinaro

    Nigel Gearsley - James Patrick Stuart

    So please believe me. I'm not lying go to behind the voice actors and see the Cars 2 videogame cast
