I would like to suggest to add "Cause of death" in the Template:Infobox Character (1 and 2) under "Status". I have seen this in other wiki's, such as the "Revenge wiki" where the cause of death is given when the status of a character is "Deceased". I think it would be an interesting addition.
I have been thinking about this for a while. I've also seen it in many other wikis and it seems like an interesting parameter. I'm going to consult with other admins and see what they think about it, thanks very much for your input.
I uploaded a new background for the POI template. I grabbed it from “Wingman” and painted out Harold. It might not be perfect, but it should do for a while. Of course, the current one should still remain for the first three seasons. What do you (and anyone else who is reading this) think?
To make this happen I'm planning to add a new parameter (say "bg") to Template:Person that specifies the image to be used. E.g. "subway" would set it to the new one, but it would remain the same if it's not set.
The site CSS should also be updated because it would actually affect the class of the div. Could you help me with this?
That is brilliant, I love the idea! I agree with it, of course, such details make the site better. And I also agree with keeping the previous uses of Template:Person with the library background and using the subway from now on.
I just added the class .sboard that includes the subway background (as opposed to .fboard which is the library one - called Finch's board at first).
Feel free to edit it and test the new parameter, that way we can take a closer look at the finished idea.
Hello, thank you very much for your comment! Having your effort thoroughly appreciated is always satisfiyng.
As for your question, I'm not sure if I understand it - do you mean adding content to the article Samaritan? We are in the process of editing that one with the latest information, and you can edit it too if you want!
Note: the Person_of_Interest_Wiki is for keeping the tagline from appearing in the main page, in order to keep it aesthetically good looking. You have to change it and put the name of the main page of your wiki, in the same way.
Play, I just moved Episode 317 to Entanglement, which was tweeted earlier today, but I can't seem to edit any of the associated template pages. It's like I've been locked out of them: I click EDIT and nothing happens. Anyway, I thought I'd better give you a heads up so you know why the change is half done.
There's an associated issue I just noticed. The template for the red-and-white box is labeled perp, which is easy to use but doesn't accurately describe the use of the box. The Machine displays it to categorize individuals who are immintent threats in the moment; it doesn't use it to classify people in the same way as it does a red, yellow or white box. I've just removed the box from Megan Tilman, which never had one in the episode (I don't believe it was introduced until around 110), and changed her back to her white box. I noticed the same was done with one or two others. If you're making changes, we might want to consider a more accurate label for the red-and-white box.

Yes, I changed that too (here are some tests I forgot to include in the original post), but did you check my copy of the template? Because the Template:Person is protected. I couldn't edit that, which is why I had to create the copy.

Well, those were Red boxes before my edits, so changing to WhiteRed didn't make them less accurate.
By looking at the usage, I figured the squares in these templates are to show whether the PoI of the episode is a victim or a perpetrator.
I might have been wrong about this, sorry.
I noticed as I checked a number of others that they were red, too. I wondered what was us up with that. I'm reviewing episodes now, and will check them all to be sure they're accurate -- red is worse, to be sure, so your change was a reasonable one given that. I think there is some confusion about what the boxes do, which that perp label adds to. I appreciate your drawing the situation to our attention.
Let me look at your tests again (I did earlier, but fairly cursorily) and unlock the template for you so you can make your fixes, unless Play gets there first.
The template is unlocked, feel free to do any necessary changes to fix it, this is the best part a wiki. You seem to know your way around it. I'll see if I have more time later to take a look into the issue more carefully.
