Regarding "Appearances" sections: I'm curious what is the preferred order in which one specifies that a character's first appearance in a season is also somehow non-linear. For example, which is preferred:

  • "Shattered" (Season 7) (alternate timeline)


  • "Shattered" (alternate timeline) (Season 7)

I did look for already-established policies and archived discussions regarding this issue, but found none. Please point me in the right direction if I've missed something.

I believe your former example would be the correct, though as you seem to know season mentions only need to appear in the first episode of a season they appear in. 31dot (talk) 08:17, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

Good to know. One more question: is there somewhere one might find this info in a policy, specifically a manual of style? Seems like it should be available somewhere to help guide editors and promote consistency of style, yes? DKqwerty (talk) 04:30, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

We have a Manual of Style, though I don't know if that specifically is in there. 31dot (talk) 09:28, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
