"Eden" Edit

I think we all know that "Eden" is a logical reference to the real-life PM "Robert Anthony Eden", but as it is not stated specifically in the episode, shouldn't this page be simply "Eden (Knock Knock)" or "Eden (Prime Minister)", until further in-universe references are found? We need to always be careful that we do not mix in-universe with real-life information. TheFartyDoctor Talk 00:47, May 7, 2017 (UTC)

While I appreciate your dedication to T:NO RW, page titles can be a slight exception. See, we need to balance the terms of that policy against the other need to have an easily-searchable wiki. Eden (Knock Knock) would simply be too obscure to be of use, and Eden (Prime Minister) is just too long, and potentially not specific enough.
In the past, we have handled situations like this by simply using the RW first name as the preferred disambiguator to some made up (parenthetical). Then, we've added a BTS to explain that there is no explicit reference to that person in the source cited. That way, we honor the spirit of T:NO RW, but concede to the practicality of this being a searchable wiki.
Still, I will look around for a source for the first name. It'll probably be somewhere in the books.

Thanks for your help! It's much appreciated. I certainly learnt something new! I was also wondering whether or not a prose story would have his name somewhere. TheFartyDoctor Talk 01:12, May 7, 2017 (UTC)
