Recent Rollback

Hi, there. I rolled back your recent edit to the Number Six article. Technically, "Sharon Valerii" is the correct notation for that section: There wasn't a distinction between "Boomer" and the Caprica copy except their location and the fact that one was a sleeper agent and one was not. The article section you edited can't quite use "Sharon Agathon" because the two aren't married yet. You can use [[Sharon Agathon|a copy of Sharon Valerii]] as a link, but to avoid confusion in how events are described, using the character's current name leads to more confusion. --Spencerian 00:03, 31 December 2006 (CST)

I disagree. Using "Sharon Valerii" is misleading; the Number Eight article also clearly distinguishes between Sharon "Boomer" Valerii and Sharon "Athena" Agathon. Also, the exceptions you mention are crucial. Thus it should be clear which copy this is (which is, by the way, clear to the viewer from the start). However, I agree that she is not (yet) Sharon Agathon. I have given it another try; see what you think. Please don't roll back, but try to edit towards a text satisfactory to both of us :-) --Manscher 03:31, 31 December 2006 (CST)
