I tend to agree. I've never really liked the category. Most of it is empty and most of it will remain empty for all time. Originally, I think the thought might have been to let players fill in their profiles at their leisure. But in a lot of cases, that's never going to happen, even among still active community participants. There are some profiles that are filled out, though, so I don't know what to do about that exactly.

I also tend to think of Zahru.
Also, there is a lot of confusion about Characters versus Players. Which may be partially my fault for trying to define SigFigs as being "avatars of players" when really, they're just important characters who sometimes share a name with their player.

I am in complete agreement with this. Never sat well with me. I'm all for information up front. You can see in all the introductory stuff I've written that I care more for transparency than that old mystical self important bullshit where we hide information and only the cool, smart people get to see it as a reward for being cool and smart. That said, though, this whole page reeks of self importance as it is. Some folks deserve the recognition, of course, but still. I should think that their awesomeness will be revealed to newcomers as they encounter all the stuff that person did without shoving it down their throats. I'm almost more inclined to treat this category like a Character Page only. I fear that trying to list all the active players is madness and that trying to list all the "important" ones is just as elitist as what currently exists.
