Do we want to include this kind of thing for every celebrity fan (Gaiman, Wheaton, Bill Corbett, etc.)? I'd say it's enough to link to their Wikipedia page, unless they've done something notable in the JoCoverse other than being a celebrity and being a fan.

My rough criterion: If a JoCo devotee who's completely ignorant of this person's non-JoCo-related work wouldn't know who he or she is, he or she probably doesn't need a JoCopedia page. By that standard, for instance, Gaiman is "guy who's blogged about enjoying Coulton's music", Wheaton is "guy who released a JoCo-centric podcast episode", Corbett is "guy who did the robot voice for Chiron Beta Prime". I wouldn't include any of them, by that standard, though WilW comes closest. Thoughts? --Bry 02:18, 8 June 2008 (EDT)

Honestly, I felt the same way, but didn't want to be the one to question someone's work, especially since JoCopedia isn't robust enough yet that I feel comfortable discarding pages. But yeah, I don't see any point. "Celebrity fans", maybe? We could add Pam from The Office then, too ... --MitchO 10:30, 8 June 2008 (EDT)
