Crystal Lake Memories[edit]

Maybe there should be some mention of the book Crystal Lake Memories. ISBN: 1845763432. 68.116.99.184 22:22, 13 September 2007 (UTC)

Characters[edit]

I added Tommy Jarvis to the characters because he is one of the most important characters in the Friday the 13th series considering he's in 3 of the movies. More than any other character (Other then Jason and Pamela) wieners 22:40, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Template alteration[edit]

I alternated the colors to this template. I hope you like it. Evolutionselene 10:55, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

The black top makes it so you cannot view the "v" in the toolbar on the left.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 14:36, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

Proposal for a reformatting of this template[edit]

What do you think? FaithLehaneTheVampireSlayer 14:30, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

I don't think it's necessary. Freddy vs. Jason isn't directly part of any continuity, so why would it be in the "original" section? It's easier to just list the films as they come out together. They're all part of the same film series, just not the same continuity. Otherwise, how would you do Halloween, which has like 3 continuities.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 14:38, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Consensus on dates after films[edit]

Film navboxes don't usually have the dates following the films. I also find it disrespectful to the original film's legacy to be listing the year after the progenitor of the series rather than just for the god-awful 2009 remake. LF (talk) 23:01, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

Well, your personal opinion of the remake is irrelevant. Second, if it's "unusual" for navboxes to have dates following a film, how much more unusual is it to have even more unnecessary verbage like "remake" and "sequel to the remake" tacked on? Years are the simplest way to show a reader that the second identical title is actually a film from a different year.  BIGNOLE  (Contact me) 23:55, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
