Should we link the Recap of the light novels here on the Main Page?

As much as I like the series overview and its listing of the light novel volumes, it takes up a lot of room and makes the series description look really cluttered. Is there some way to compress it or move it to a more convenient location?

Checking through the pages for some edits then and there, I've noticed that are many entries which refers to the 4th Light Novel, and many of them except a few like Compressed Adaptation (which is coincidentaly mine) spells the novels's name as Drugs & The Dominoes, yes it sounds accurate and all, but the title is Drug & The Dominos, it may sound weird but that's the title, you can't change it or think it's the right way to spell because Drugs sounds better. I'm going to fix all of which I can find, please if someone can help fixing a missed one and help to avoid any future misspellings, please do so.

Why is Claire Stanfield in spoiler tags? Up until The Reveal, the name is just a throw-away reference. By the point that the name is connected to the character, it's an anti-climactic post-reveal revelation; just an, "oh, he's that guy someone said something about."

Plastering spoilers with such broad strokes unnecessarily highlights the name's significance in examples that would otherwise spoil nothing at all. It's a spoileriffic abuse of the spoiler tag.

I agree that we should just get rid of the spoiler tags on Claire's name. What does everyone else think?

I agree, first-time watchers and spoiler-free fans wouldn't really be able to connect Claire with the The Conductor who "dies" early in the series. The whole compromising thing in the whole article would blatantly state Claire is The Conductor who is not quite dead without a spoiler tag or give him a picture in the characters sheet, the rest is tame compared to attempt violating the former two.

In that case, I'll be editing out the spoiler tags where appropriate.

Half of this wiki seems to treat Fermet's torture of Czes and Czes eating him as a spoiler while the other half will either leave it unmarked or only cover half. I was wondering if these possible spoilers should be covered up or left alone.

What would you call it when Nice keeps a hand grenade in her eye socket? It's not exactly Victoria's Secret Compartment...

Eye scream?

About the Characters Sheet, the characters who never appeared on the anime or just were introduced on the later Light Novel-only arcs, are they conveniently out the sheet for massive spoilers issues or the tropers for Baccano in general don't have enough information on them to actually start gathering their related tropes? If information is the problem, I could start expanding the sheet myself, nothing big tough, my knowledge about them is not that vast compared to the already existing characters on the sheet.

We have information on characters who didn't appear in the anime over in the Durarara character sheet, so I'd say here on Baccano! it's just a problem of not having enough information about them. I think you can go ahead and add them.

Meanwhile, I'll go ahead and add folders to that page.

Thanks, I will begin gathering my sources and character images. I've already spent quite some time expanding some of Claire's and adding images to Berga and Keith.

I'm thinking these are non-examples so I have moved them here:

  • Eviler Than Thou: In their battle on top of the train, Claire owns Ladd.
    • Technically, he doesn't prove that he's more evil (and wouldn't want to) — he proves that he's far crazier.

  • Shout-Out: It could easily be an unintentional one, but in the opening Isaac is clearly dressed as either The Great Pumpkin or the Headless Horseman.
    • Likely unintentional; this seems like it was only meant to complete the holiday theme together with Miria's Santa costume.

There are a lot of tropes here that belong on the Characters Sheet. (Dumb Blonde, Creepy Child, Kuudere) Anyone mind if I relocate them to where they belong?
04:05:08 PM May 31st 2010
No problem — Though I would personally keep character tropes that apply to more than one character on this list as well.

Yes, that's reasonable enough. Thanks.

If anyone else could contribute to the trope relocation, it would be much appreciated. (I has homework.)
