Currently we have articles about people who worked on novels and comics. Seems to me until some time ago it were only the authors of those two, but thanks to Sulfur and others, that now includes a heavily expanded number about i.e. comic editors,artists,inkers etc. I'm all for it, but why don't we do this for people who worked on games and audio productions (both as creators and voice performers). I don't see any difference in the licensation degree of those productions or their canon status (all non-canon). Kennelly 20:53, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Well, part of it is that we decided way back when that only artists and writers of non-canon material would get their own articles. Unfortunately, with comics, we get into a very gray area, especially in terms of the editors, because from talking with several comic script-writers, most editors do end up writing portions of the issue, even though 95% of the time, they don't take any credit (one exception to this is Denny O'Neil on one comic issue that I've come across thus far out of a few hundred issues). Inkers, letterers, and colorists are all considered "artists" in the comics industry too. We do have some mention of the writers (story writers that is) for some games and audio productions, but unfortunately quite rarely for the games. In terms of performers (generally voices), I don't think we have individual articles for any of them, but I know that I wrote up entries for several that can be found right on some of the articles for the games themselves. There was an article created at some point in the past with the intent of collecting a list of the various performers in games, but that seems to have fallen by the wayside, unfortunately.
I know that this didn't answer the question, but I did want to cover what is and is not, and try to hit up some of the history of it too. -- Sulfur 21:02, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
