Baron Ironblood[edit]

Any chance we could add Baron Ironblood to the template? Dick G 17:42, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

My thinking is maybe in an Action Force template, especially if the number of Action Force entries increase. --Destron Commander 08:09, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Agreed. An Action Force template it is Dick G 10:10, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

G.I. Joe casualties[edit]

  • Does this need to go into the template? It's not referenced much in other Joe articles but is a useful reference point.Dick G 02:29, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Crimson Guard[edit]

They Crimson Guard isn't a faction. They're an elite group under the command of Cobra. The other factions may be associated with Cobra, but are not directly commanded by Cobra Commander.--Flash176 (talk) 16:12, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

Characters & Villains[edit]

These sections are highly arbitrary and I believe unneeded. The individual names should be removed from the template and replaced with links to the lists of all characters. This template is for all of GI Joe, but is heavily biased towards RAH.--Flash176 (talk) 19:30, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

I think they are useful to help people find some of more popular the characters. The names should remain, and maybe the title for that area should be changed. They are already linked to the list of all characters.Sgetz (talk) 19:08, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
Like I said, the list is very arbitrary. Overkill and Cover Girl were never that popular, for example. Neither was Colton or Heavy Duty.--Flash176 (talk) 21:17, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
If popularity is the criterion, then why is Tunnel Rat on the list? He's probably less popular than even Cover Girl. (Cover Girl did at least receive a new action figure recently, by virtue of a fan vote.) 209.254.15.178 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 14:20, 17 May 2010 (UTC).

G.I. Joe navbox[edit]

It's been brought to my attention that this template is not functioning as intended, because the primary purpose of a navbox, is for navigating around the related articles that are included in the template. Right now, the navbox is included on ALL G.I. Joe articles. To correct this, ether the template should be modified, so that every article using the navbox is also included as a link in the navbox, or the navbox should be removed from G.I. Joe articles that aren't included in the template. Any suggestions? Fortdj33 (talk) 02:24, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
