User:Robberey1705, I gave a perfectly valid reason for removing the statement about the show having a 93 percent approval rating on RT. The 93 percent is not what people usually understand an "RT" score to represent: the Tomatometer, which is based on combining critical reviews and creating a combined score. The 93 percent from the reference is an "audience" score, which we don't normally provide. RT is a reliable source, yes, but this is only true for the critical consensus and the Tomatometer score. At present, RT does not provide that for this show. When it does, we can provide that consensus and that score. Right now, the audience score might as well be an IMDB score--it's not based on critical reviews. ZarhanFastfire (talk) 01:31, 16 July 2017 (UTC)

- Yep... I guess because it's a coproduction with Netflix, which is American, they opted to go for the US spelling. —Joeyconnick (talk) 19:16, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
It admittedly doesn't make sense to me, but the traveler possessing Vincent Ingram is identified as 001, not 0001. This is inconsistent with the other travelers' numbers, but it is what it is. —188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:56, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
Weeell.... Are there travelers with numbers starting in two zeroes? It would make sense to me that you start with number 1. Or if you think there might be hundreds of them before you're done, then maybe you start with 001. Also has a nice ring to it, like 007. But then, when you pass 999, perforce they all have four digit numbers. It was getting into the 7000's before the end of Season 3, so if it kept going much longer, after 9999 you'd have to go to four digits.
If there are travelers with numbers like 0099 or 0068, well heck. Only way I can explain that offhand is that a revision in nomenclature was made at some point fairly early on, when it began to become apparent that there were going to be a lot of travelers before we're done.
Another little glitch with the numbers is that while in general the travelers have increasing numbers starting with 001, when a dying David asks McLaren his real name, he replies with his number, suggesting that his traveler number was the number he already had, not part of an increasing series. Make up your rationalization for that.
On further review (binge watching the earlier seasons, plus consulting the Travelers Wiki) there ARE travelers whose numbers start with 00. Although the first traveler was 001, and in general new travelers have higher and higher numbers, some, such as 114 (the engineer who built the laser to destroy the asteroid) arrive with low numbers. Low numbers are generally very important people. Grace Day is 0027. (Trevor, who knows the engineer well and is older than everyone else, is 0115, so maybe the initial 0 is optional). In one episode where the Director makes repeated efforts to save the team's mission, the travelers who keep getting thrown into the fire are consecutively numbered starting with 5000. MacLaren said his name in the future was 3468, his traveler number. You'd almost think the writers didn't have a consistent system :-| but there seem to be three general rules: people involved the project since its earliest days, or high up in the hierarchy or both, tend to have low numbers. With numbers less than 4 digits, there may or may not be a zero, or two zeroes, at the beginning. Most new arrivals have higher and higher numbers. You might reconcile the two general conventions (high numbers more recent, low numbers big shots) by saying that most newly arrived travelers are also project members/volunteers of less seniority, and that's why they have high numbers. Only on special occasions does a senior project member volunteer to be a traveler.184.108.40.206 (talk) 08:14, 25 December 2018 (UTC)
Reliable resource response.
Joeyconnick asked in their latest edit if renewcanceltv.com is a reliable source. Anecdotally, the site has always had reliable information for shows that I’ve looked up. And it has become the default source for most smaller and medium sites. ScreenRant.com uses them as a source.
The only problem is that they rely on a lot of “inside sources” to feed them their info before the networks/studios officially announce renewals and cancellations.
The term "recurring" is a term-of-art in television series. I think someone has mistaken it for "other people who have appeared in the show". Is this worth a cleanup request?
