What Format?

I just put all the information about belly buttons I could find up. It's in paragraph form right now, but we might want to consider list form. I don't know. Is this fine as it is? And also, should we add pictures of some of these examples? --Philip8o

I added a short list of characters with visible belly buttons, but yeah, there could be some clean up. I think only one picture is really necessary. —Guard Duck talk 20:24, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Ok. But I meant a list of appearances. Every time a belly button is seen, put it in the list of appearances. But that list you made is definitely good. Do you think we need a list of appearances as well? And should we include a character in that list you made if their belly button is shown one or twice. Like, Science Fiction Greg?
Yeah, an appearances list would be good, provided it centers around abnormal or unusual sightings. (i.e. not every time Strong Sad appears). —Guard Duck talk 20:36, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
What if there were both a Characters with Visible Belly Buttons and an Abnormal Sightings section? (or something to that effect) - Opus the Penguin 20:39, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
{repeated edit conflicts} An appearance list is definitely not a good idea. If we decided to mention every time a belly button is seen, we'd end up listing every single freakin' toon that Strong Sad, Old-Timey Strong Bad, Senor Cardgage and Larry Palaroncini ever appeared in. Instead we could try splitting the paragraph into smaller sections to order these ideas, one section per significant character. Just like what Opus said before I got to add this post. – The Chort 20:40, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
I've seen a page that had this problem before. They said "Every time this character is seen is an appearance, so they are not listed here. Please see (Character filmography)" We could do that. --Philip8o
If a character always has a belly button, it would only be listed once under a characters tab. However if, for some reason, strong bad is shown with a belly button, it would be placed under an appearances tab. That way, we could avoid having to mention every appearance of strong sad but still have him listed on the page since he does have a belly button. - Opus the Penguin 20:48, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Minors?

In that list added, should only Major characters be mentioned or should we include Minor characters as well? - Opus the Penguin 20:32, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

I vote both. --Philip8o
Come on now. This is an article on Belly Buttons. Ergo, we mention all belly buttons, even if it appears on a minor character. – The Chort 20:41, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Just to note

I was very surprised seeing this new page. It's well written off the start, have a good organization and it's just looks good. If it was a vote, I'd nominate it for "Best Page In A While" category. Keep it up! Elcool (talk)(contribs) 19:26, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Thank you very much! --Philip8o
You get most improved. Ding! – The Chort 18:01, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
