Legacy section and Episode Listing[edit]

This article is missing information on the series legacy, since it spawned many youtube horror series like EverymanHYBRID, CaughtNotSleeping, SirensInTheNight, and Threedrowned just to name a few. Since this is a series there should be an episode listing with a brief synopsis for each episode added to the article as well. There should also be more reviews on the series from notable critics, a quote from Roger Ebert's review on the series should be added to the article as well.--Paleface Jack (talk) 15:45, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Do you have sources for these things? The Legacy section in particular could be difficult, though if you can give us some links, I wouldn't mind trying to work on it. ~Mable (chat) 18:09, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
Also, the "Roger Ebert's review" consists of the following tweet: "“Marble Hornets,” a YouTube serial. A forsaken indie film meets “Paranormal.” All episodes to date" and a hyperlink. Not much to work with... ~Mable (chat) 18:11, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

That's all?--Paleface Jack (talk) 23:12, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Click the link yourself, it's really just a tweet. I'm not even sure if it can be called "praise". We could state that Ebert compared Marble Hornets with "Paranormal" (I am not even sure what he is referring to), but other than that, that source isn't particularly useful... ~Mable (chat) 17:41, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Minor edit warring over bloated plot section[edit]

I don't know if this edit warring will continue, but it might be a good idea to get the article temporarily protected for a while? I'm not entirely sure of the guidelines. ~Mable (chat) 23:21, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

...I don't want to do undo an edit yet again - I'm pretty sure I've already broken the rule of edit-warring :s ~Mable (chat) 11:39, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
  • If anyone can put together a good, concise version of each season I'm not opposed to it being re-added, but as it stands I agree with the removal of the season synopses. It was pretty bulky and unwieldy. I've heard that the show grew pretty complicated as it progressed, so I'm not certain that this will ever be summarized enough to where it could be included in the article. We may just want to list the "official" wiki at WikiDot. The site does have some oversight, so it's not really able to be edited by totally random people.

I don't think there's anything wrong with a short plot section that only really explains the set-up and theme. After all, the exact events of the plot aren't commented upon much in the sources, right? ~Mable (chat) 11:30, 26 September 2015 (UTC)
