Just tossing this out there - try to keep in mind when covering the actual original film Stargate, that many people did not follow the TV series (indeed, I'm only just making my way through it now), and folks should keep this in mind on that page. Before I started watching the series I was utterly confused by all the references to the TV series. The film's page should really keep the references to itself and if a point refers to the series it should explicitly say so. The references are a little more welcome on the Headscratchers and Wild Mass Guessing pages, but maybe should still say "This was touched on in the TV series" and then go on with a spoiler tag.

For example: The planet visited was only named Abydos in the TV Series. The name "Abydos" means nothing to someone who has just watched the movie for the first time and is checking out the film page.

I'll fix up as much as I can when I get the time, but I'm only 3 episodes away from the end of the first season (and the Pittsburgh library system only has one copy of season 2 - I'm on a waiting list!), and don't want to get spoiled on the next seasons. I'm hoping someone who has been through the series might volunteer to give it a look over and cleanup.

For some reason, Stargate Verse (main page) is not listed as a "Work" in the new system, fixed, thanks Anonymous Mc Cartney Fan!

The Crowning Moment pages for all the various Stargate series including the Film now redirect to Crowning Moment/Stargate Verse, yay.

(All the other JBM, WMG, pages appear to be specific to each entry in the franchise. Main/Stargate redirects here. The rest of Stargate (one word) namespace is for the film).

(snip resolved issue)...

Had same problem with Master And Commander, which was briefly auto-indexed (as a film) under its longer title, Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World. Now that's a redirect to Film/MasterAndCommander.

Compare Star Wars (main franchise page), which is similar to this page.

I changed the page type! <grin>

Yes, this is a works page now. You can fix all its subpages freely.

Thanks so much, AMCF! On edit — ah! I figured out how the new system for page categorization works. Thanks again for your help.
