Just wondering, why doesn't MA organize episode references the way MB does for books, etc?

Specifically, I'm thinking of individuals/names referenced. It'd be easy for some of these, especially those who go unnamed and have anchors that someone isn't necessarily searching for, to get lost in the list. --LauraCC (talk) 18:17, June 15, 2016 (UTC)

We have a different approach than MB. Our approach is to put references into the episode summary and then the list at the end should (in theory) contain all of those references, plus any missed along the way.
When you have a book with 1000+ references, they need organizing. When you have a TV show with maybe 50-100... not so much. -- sulfur (talk) 18:36, June 15, 2016 (UTC)

I see. Okay, what about referenced people only? Don't change the whole thing. Kind of like episodes of Star Trek: The Animated Series reference background characters, except that only lists those seen and not heard, not merely heard of.--LauraCC (talk) 18:41, June 15, 2016 (UTC)

Names kind of get lost in the list of terminology. --LauraCC (talk) 18:14, June 25, 2016 (UTC)
