I agree woth JSD, colors would look bad but italics sounds like a plan. {{User:Staw-Hat_Luffy/sig4}} 10:37, October 3, 2015 (UTC)

Let's not forget about first introduction too. Characters that were revealed in flashbacks but haven't appeared in the main story yet fall under this. For "first introduction" then, would we use underlined text? [[User:MasterDeva|MasterDeva]] ([[User talk:MasterDeva|talk]]) 11:17, October 3, 2015 (UTC)

This has been bothering me for a while. Can we please get rid of the little numbers next to characters in the tables of each chapter/episode? The way we use chapter notes has rendered them obsolete, and quite frankly I think they just look tacky. They're also vague and sometimes even grammatically incorrect. It's appearance, not apparition. Unless the character is a ghost, apparition has no business being there. Or a new member of what? Never specifies. Jean Bart doesn't have a number by his name when he joined the Heart Pirates. They serve no purpose now other than redundancy. Let's can this relic.DancePowderer Talk 19:01, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

Get rid of everything but first appearance. SeaTerror (talk) 19:07, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, just remove them. They're used inconsistently anyway. Awaikage Talk 19:09, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

We just need to fix it up. I think people forgot to add them for first appearance on newer chapters but it's something that's always been around. SeaTerror (talk) 19:12, September 18, 2015 (UTC)


We make note of everything already in the previous section. I don't see why first appearance should be an exception.DancePowderer Talk 19:13, September 18, 2015 (UTC) 

I've only seen the previous section list really important characters like Whitebeard or Rayleigh. SeaTerror (talk) 19:18, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

Do what you think is the best of your judgement. I really never saw the point of these numbers.

Joekido (talk) 19:23, September 18, 2015 (UTC)

I say go for it. Yata Talk to me 15:40, September 19, 2015 (UTC)

We can have an asterisk or something for first appearance, but we don't need anything else. uknownada Talk 05:12, September 20, 2015 (UTC)

We don't even need an asterisk.DancePowderer Talk 05:24, September 20, 2015 (UTC)

Well, some mention of a first appearance. Or maybe in the trivia or something, if it can't be in the character tables. But I wouldn't be against leaving it out altogether either. uknownada Talk 05:29, September 20, 2015 (UTC)

We usually do anyway. It's what we did with Barto and Cabbage.DancePowderer Talk 05:31, September 20, 2015 (UTC)

We should be listing it for all characters then. We can't just pick and choose who goes into that section. SeaTerror (talk) 07:10, September 20, 2015 (UTC)

First Appearance is noted on character pages already, so it exists already in some form on the wiki. Let's get rid of this shit. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 05:30, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

Majority says rid of all the numbers and asterisks. But some say they want a "first appearance". Why not just underline/change font color/bold/italics any first timers? Yata Talk to me 05:42, September 22, 2015 (UTC)

Remove all those signs seriously.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  16:35, September 24, 2015 (UTC)

If we use colour coding instead of numbers to denote the first appearance or introduction of a character I'm all for it. Perhaps Yatanogarasu's idea merits some consideration too. MasterDeva (talk) 19:05, September 29, 2015 (UTC)

Colors would look weird with links. I like the idea of italicized for first appearance. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 14:16, October 2, 2015 (UTC)
