MUTO[edit]

To the people who have seen the new film please understand that the guidelines for a navbox are different from those for an article for the film or list articles. Navboxes are designed to let readers navigate between existing WikiP articles. With the exception of navboxes for authors and their book or directors and their films (etc) a navbox should not contain redlinks. If an article for these new creatures is ever created then we can add the link but until then the redlink serves no useful purpose. MarnetteD | Talk 19:48, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

It's also worth mentioning that these creatures have only appeared in one film, so their role in the story and the details of their design etc can be covered in the Godzilla (2014 film) article. Unless they become recurring characters in the franchise and receive significant media coverage (like Rodan or Mothra), a separate article isn't really appropriate. —Flax5 19:55, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the input F. Even though I haven't seen the new film I thought that might be the case. Your note helps to give a more thorough explanation of how things stand at this moment. Between the hidden note that I added to the template and our posts here I hope this will help others in understanding what is going on. MarnetteD | Talk 20:01, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
I'd like to point out that these rules may possibly no longer apply? A MUTO article has already been established. We can possibly add the link to the article in the navbox now? Armegon (talk) 22:08, 1 August 2014 (UTC)
