I can't find a guideline for this, so I'm posting it here. There seems to be a discrepancy in how long episode summaries are. And I'm not refering to obviously incomplete summaries, but to the ones that are simply concise, but still lay out the whole story (eg: "The Man Trap"). I'm wondering if there is any guideline or policy on how long these texts should be, and how much detail they should carry. Hokstein 09:10, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

I'm not really sure we need a guideline on this. But IIRC, there were some complaints in the past about the blow-by-blow summaries. I think it doesn't really matter, and that they can be as detailed or concise as desired, so long as they cover the entire story. They probably shouldn't be much shorter than the Man Trap one though. If a page has one of the shorter summaries, it can always be fleshed out later if desired.– Cleanse 09:48, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
