Great list, but I thought you were doing this alphabetically, why is the last character named Aaron? AND WHERE IS PHIL COLLINS?!
 
WHERE IS HE?!

@Snail: I haven't gotten that far yet. I've actually got another list full of things I intend to get done at some point, but just haven't done yet.
 
Aaron Rodgers was one that I found well after I had finished going through the A section. I would have placed him in the correct spot if I could. Alas, my browser chokes when trying to edit the list. I've only done A-E, and already it's too big to manage. :( Anyone else who wants to take over this task is more than welcome to.

@LordAndrew: I would be glad to, but couldn't this be a concept page?

Haha funny to see you guys talk about the Aaron Rogers Page (I made it!) But I agree with snail, this could've been a concept page.

@Snail: @AgentofChaos: Yeah, a concept probably would be nice. My hope was that if this ended up being useful, I could convert it to a concept later on. I don't know what to call it though. Concepts can't be renamed except by staff, so I want to make sure I get it right first.
 
Also, characters are the default type of "Related Pages" shown. I've done the first five letters of the alphabet and already have 268 characters. Imagine loading the "Characters based on real people" (or whatever the name ends up being) page and having to wait for the list to be populated by 1000 characters and their associated images. Yikes! Until Giant Bomb's software is changed so this isn't a problem, I may have to give up on this or find some other way to do it that won't drive me insane.

@LordAndrew: For now you could just finish it, not alphabetically, and then I'll make a list of my own with all the names in order, and then maybe you can turn it into a concept page.

@Snail: The resulting concept page would probably take too long to load, because it would populate the Related Characters list with every single one of them for every person who tries to look at the page. That's not workable unless we can convince the Whiskey guys to limit the amount of Related Pages that appear for a concept. And there are good reasons why they shouldn't and won't do that.
 
There is another possibility, but it probably won't happen. There's only one guy I could ask to do this and not have him think I'm going crazy, but... I'm pretty sure he thinks I'm going crazy.

@LordAndrew: What is this other possibility thou speaketh of?
Posted by LordAndrew
@Snail: Not on Giant Bomb, basically. The list or concept page would simply be too big, so I can't do it with the software that's been provided.

@LordAndrew: Oh I see.
 
By the way, since you seem to know quite a bit about Giant Bomb wiki system, could you please visit my thread and see if you can help me out?

Update: After spending some time thinking, I may be able to do this. I'm a bit busy with other stuff currently, but you can probably expect something within the coming months.
