I really don't think this is necessary. I mean, Rorza has his own page, and he's in...like, three panels? Hojoni has his own page, fer crissakes. Ridiculous minutia is what made this wiki great, dammit. - RolonBolon 04:51, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree that ridiculous minutia is great, but that it needs better organization. If a character is significant enough to have few paragraphs, then yes, they should get their own page. But the dude who brought Blaster in... he should be identified but does he need his own page. Maybe just a sentence and a picture on a this page since in all likelihood, we will never see him again.
I envision this page also listing the cameos throughout the IDW issues, such as "crew of Orbital Command Hub", "Fastback's funeral attendees" etc. It will just be nice to have all this info in one place. The same can b done for the cartoon series, Marvel, etc. --MistaTee 05:17, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
Yes, he does need his own page. He's never going to turn up again, sure - but hey, plenty of guys made one appearance and then never appeared again. U-Haul Robot didn't. Neither did Furg. Or Padlock. Or Skater. Or Piano Transformer guy. If we go down this route, we are going to have to delete hundreds of pages. If we were concerned about notability, we'd be editing Wikipedia. - RolonBolon 06:24, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
Yes. Funky alien dude SHOULD get his own page. --M Sipher 06:39, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
Well what is your opinion of grouping them together on a page, with a brief description and list of appearances, AND a link to their own page? --MistaTee 13:26, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
I like that idea best. To assist people in finding the article about a particular minor character, it is helpful to have minor characters collected in some way, be it a list or a category or whatever. Some of these guys I think should have their own article -- every named Transformer ever, for example, should have their own article IMO -- and some of them could stand to be without. We have a few "related characters" sections, such as for the Charlenes associated with Walter Barnett and Jake Lomax. I think that's an okay thing for humans and aliens when there's not really much to say except "she came out of Jake's pool". --Steve-o 16:55, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
I think they should all have their own page, most of them do already. This list should be a category instead, in my opinion. It is a bad idea to duplicate brief descriptions on this page with their own character page anyway, as there is more than one place to maintain information.—Starfield 15:57, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
Probably a good idea, especially with all the cameos now.--MistaTee 19:10, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
