ALF Female Activist[edit]

Deleted "ripped her face off and ripped out some of her organs" since the activist is only ever bitten and there is no face-ripping off or organs getting torn out. Fenomenal 17:47, 14 September 2007 (UTC)

Stone's death[edit]

again, how can you assume that Stone was killed? he was in the basement of the command center, behind a huge metal door.Roguejackbauer 21:09, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

Ordering/insignificant characters[edit]

This page is way too long winded, how about splitting the two films rather than having them all bunched together. Also, I feel there is only a need for the main characters of the film who bear some importance to the plot, not for every single character listed in the credits. Le.Kwyjibo 16:54, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

Sam[edit]

Is there any proof that the man that lets Andy into the shelter, and who later dies being tossed from the helicopter into the infected, is actually Sam from the house? At no point do I remember hearing his name mentioned and even if he was called Sam there is no proof that it is the same man. VanRedd 18:53, 07 July 2007 (UTC)

  • I think he might have been called Jacob or Jakob. --Demiurge1000 (talk) 16:48, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

That's the guy who tried to escape on a motorboat with Don you're thinking of, Demiurge1000. And in answer to your question, VanRedd, Karen said twice at the start of the film before she got infected "Sam!", so it's either the same man, or another one with the same name. 2.100.53.51 (talk) 18:26, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

Guys, I know you like the movies, but sheesh. This list is way too detailed, redundant, and too long. There's more of the plot of the movies explained here than there is in the actual relevant articles. Slac speak up! 22:33, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Agreed 100%, there's way too many bit-part characters referenced here, and some of the entries read like a plot synopsis (Especially Jim's). And do a load of nothing characters that have about two forgettable lines apiece before they're ripped apart by zombies deserve a 200+ word entry in this list? Cut the fat.

  • Done. Subbed down to a paragraph each, also evaporated the cruft articles this was spawning. Now I'm going to warn the author, yet again, to stop the tide of cruft. ➔ This is REDVEЯS 10:23, 24 September 2007 (UTC)

Possible error in reporting[edit]

Another reading of the second movie suggests that Alice did not forgive Don - instead, she infected him deliberately through kissing. There's also the strong suggestion that Andy, now carrying the virus but asymptomatic due to genetics, was the vector by which the virus entered Europe. Tammy, by putting her loyalty to her brother above the cold hard logic of the military, managed to doom a continent.

I know Don left Alice to die, but she clearly isn't a murderous, vengeful person. Plus, her reaction when she watched Don become infected would suggest that she wasn't expectng that at all, and therefore was unaware that she was a carrier. Also, while it's very likely in my personal opinion that it was through Andy that the Rage virus spread to mainland Europe, as far as I can tell, it was never confirmed and probably never will be. 2.100.53.51 (talk) 18:26, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Semi-protection[edit]

Various IPs are removing the clean-up templates and crapflooding this article with fansite material, so I have semi-protected it for a few days.

If you, anonymous editor who I think is User:Ryan76el, want to talk about these problems - and I've tried to talk to you here, on your talk page, on your IP talk pages etc - here is the place. I hope I got your attention.

For others, if you want to make changes and have a new account or are anonymous, say what the changes are below and stick {{editprotected}} above the change you want to be made. Someone will be along shortly to help. ➔ This is REDVEЯS 10:54, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Cleanup effort[edit]

Why does one thing have to be repeated four times? —Preceding unsigned comment added by TheMightyMeh88 (talkcontribs) 11:27, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

It's not one thing repeated four times, it's four things mentioned once. This article does not cite any references or sources. This article resembles a fansite. This article describes an aspect of the film in a primarily in-universe style. All or part of this article may be confusing or unclear. Four things. Your help in improving any one of these (or all) would be most appreciated. ➨ ЯEDVERS has nothing to declare except his jeans 07:29, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Cruft gardening[edit]

Once again, this article has reach stupendous proportions, with every spit and cough of each character, named or unnamed, being listed in Proustian detail. I've weeded the article, reducing each entry to a single sentence - that is all that is needed.

Editors of this article may like to know about Wikia, a wiki farm that hosts wiki-based fan sites and allows people to edit just like here, but without the narrow confines of having to make articles encyclopedic. ➔ REDVEЯS likes kittens... and you 09:03, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Stone's Unit[edit]

Although Stone does in fact wear a ranger tab just below it you can clearly see the 82nd Airborne insignia. Judging by the fact that every other soldier in the movie other than the Delta snipers are also wearing the 82nd patch I think it's safe to say that they are the Unit on the ground and not the "75th Airborne Ranger Battalion" that was previously listed in this article.64.231.66.185 (talk) 08:51, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

List of 28 Days/Weeks Later charactersList of 28 Days Later characters — Current name is artificial and contains the deprecated slash character unnecessarily (WP:SLASH; the manual of style applies equally to article titles WP:MOS#Article titles) . Using "28 days later" to refer to the series – as is done in the body of the article – is clearer and more in line with Wikipedia article naming conventions. Redirects can be created from the names of the other media works, e.g. List of 28 Weeks Later characters, List of 28 Days Later: The Aftermath characters.)
