There are faculty and staff (and entire stories) in Gen 2 that may never show up as Class of 2017-2020 Students. Likewise for Gen 1. Alumni may or may not include folks like Mimeo.

As much as it wasn't meant to happen, there has been crossover between story generations, so it doesn't bother me to add the story generation category in addition to students and class year (which we often never find out).

I'm not sure there's a problem in this case.

Hmm.

Not sure exactly what you mean, but okay, I'm fine with not mass removing due to redundancy if it's not hurting the ability to find characters with precision.

Not sure what use the Students category has, other than being a Super-Category, but... I shrug.

I do wonder how we would easily figure out who's appeared in both Gen1 and 2, like Dragonblade, since both categories are so big...

... I just learned that Category Display options are a thing. Sigh.

Classic Categories for me! Woo! So much better.

So, apparently Dissonance Pythia is a total mismatch for "Spring,_and_a_Young_Squirrel's_Fancy..."-Pythia...

Do we split Pythia in-page like Frostbite, or give each of them separate pages? Presuming the latter since they're likely unmix-up-able?

What do we call each of them?

The Dickinson Cottage Pythia is a fixer in 06/07, so maybe Pythia (2007) vs. Pythia (2011)?

Hmm. Yeah. I think First Pythia graduated too.

Should we rename "Wizard (disambiguation)" to "Wizard" and move the current, for consistency in Category:Disambiguations?

And remove "Class of" from the Fixx-es for same?

Don't overthink consistency, do whatever makes it clearer to the user. The reason the Fixxes are extended with (Class of 20xx) is because that is the clearest way we currently have to disambiguate them. If we had an even better way (say, one is an hero and another is a villain, or in-story they are more often than not referred by their given names, so readers will be familiar with those) we could use that instead.
In the two Pythias' case, we should use whatever makes it easier for a casual Whateley fan to tell them apart. If the best thing we have is the year we have seen them as Whateley students, then that's what we use. Don't downgrade other entries ease of use because of limitations we have in this case.

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

Hmm, so should the Pythias be "(Class of X)" instead of just "(X)"?

If so, well, I could edit the ~12 pages again...

If we know that, sure. I was under the impression that the "X" was referring to the year the scene in which she appeared took part, not the year she would graduate.

And this is kind of a job for automatic editing via bot. Just rename the page, leave a redirect behind and drop me a message. I will take care of fixing the links from other pages.

^ - Yeeah... New Pythia being in Class of 2011 and Old Pythia being in Class of 2007 are just guesses based on what needs to happen for them not to be at school together...

And ok, so 12 edits is fine for botting. Ok.

I forget how school codenames work, like New Pythia could have it even if Old Pythia is using it after graduating?

Thinking about giving Mrs. Carson an Appearances section like everyone else, but that might make her the longest page we have?
