103 Squilliam Fancyson (Talk) Neutral Pending discussion
I know that some people might not consider this an important change, but I kind of find it annoying that certain character descriptions make the characters sound as if they are superhuman rather than typical cartoon characters. For instance; on Gary's page is states "Gary can levitate and teleport", which makes him sound like he posses superpowers, when in reality he is just a cartoon being a cartoon. Something like that could be simplified to "Like many animated characters, Gary can occasionally be seen defying the laws of science, as seen in the episode 'Gary Takes a Bath'." I'm not asking to quote me, but something along the lines of that. This isn't just seen on Gary's page either. On SpongeBob's page it states "SpongeBob has displayed some forms of telepathy". These are just animated characters who aren't meant to be taken that seriously.
104 Squilliam Fancyson (Talk) Neutral Pending discussion
Many characters have traits described on their page, making them seem permanent. Another example is on Gary's page where it states "Gary has arms, as seen in "Have You Seen This Snail?", "The Gift of Gum", and "Grooming Gary". Just because they were used as temporary gags, doesn't mean that they are permanent traits. It also says that he has a record player underneath his shell, along with many other objects, which could be simplified to "The contents of Gary's shell have varied throughout the series."
