Would it be possible to add a "previous/next episode" space in the infoboxes on the individual episode pages?--[[User:Carrion|Carrion]] ([[User talk:Carrion|talk]]) 03:27, November 23, 2012 (UTC)

Revision as of 03:27, November 23, 2012

Canonicity

I think it seems very premature to call this series likely non-canon. Absolutely none of the points made in the article are anything but conjecture at this point. I'd take the opposite guess at this point, that it will be canon, and will fit just fine in there. Some of the talents from Tron: Legacy are working on this as well.

But my point is also conjecture. This article should be cleaned up to avoid precicely that until we know more.

Then what of the whole "Tron, in hiding and wounded, trains Beck but Beck fights Rinzler" thing? Jeyo 04:25, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

Beck DOESN'T fight Rinzler, but Tron in disguise.

Right. But I said that before Beck's Beginning came out, so I couldn't have known. Besides, it's still non-canon. If Clu's evil intentions are known by this point, then Tron would HAVE to be Rinzler. Clu turned Tron into Rinzler first thing. Jeyo 21:35, May 13, 2012 (UTC)

"If Clu's evil intentions are known by this point, then Tron would HAVE to be Rinzler." Why? There are countless possible explanations why that doesn't need to be true. "Legacy" take place a *long* time after the events of Clu's betrayal. Uprising is clearly following the template of Star Wars: The Clone Wars - filling in gaps. There may be the occasional inconsistancy, but there's no reason to assume this is outside the main continuity. (Unlike Tron 2.0, which has clearly been relegated to an alternate future.)

Kosinski may not be involved, but the writers of Legacy are. http://spinoff.comicbookresources.com/2012/05/18/tron-uprising-producers-talk-timelines-influences-the-grid/
I don't see why the idea of Tron's conversion into Rinzler being delayed is so hard a concept to understand and fit into a broader timeline. FigmentJedi 16:32, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

In the article, it says: TRON may be captured in the series and be turned into Rinzler. If this is true, then why did Rinzler exist before? I know TRON turned himself into Rinzler, but he would still have a white suit and white circuits, unless he stole an identity disc, but that would change him. So therefore, Rinzler can't exist in the series, making it non-canon. Colmyo 21:03, May 27, 2012 (UTC) Colmyo

I honestly have no idea what you are talking about. Apart from stylistic differences (i.e. the color of Tron's suit at the time of Clu's betrayal), there is nothing to suggest this series does not or cannot fit into the continuity of the films. Darth Prefect 02:08, May 28, 2012 (UTC)

But what I'm saying is that, if Tron became Rinzler, he would need another disc, or the Recoder. The other disc would override him, and he doesn't have the Recoder. So Rinzler would never exist in the series, unless Clu captured him. So it's non-canon. Colmyo 13:11, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

You can't know any of that is true. It's all speculation on your part and there's no room for speculation if you want this wiki to be taken seriously. "Uprising" is being sold as taking place in between the events of the original film and "Tron: Legacy", just as "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" takes place in between Episodes II & III. Boxleitner has mentioned this in multiple interviews and Disney refers to it in their publicity. Canon should be assumed unless otherwise definitively stated by the production team (as was the case with "Tron 2.0").
I'm not saying the article shouldn't note continuity differences (such as Tron's color at the time of the betrayal), but (again, using The Clone Wars as the example) this series is clearly meant to be canonical with the movies. Darth Prefect

I don't think you're using the word "canon" properly:

canon 1 |ˈkanən|
noun

[...]

2 a collection or list of sacred books accepted as genuine: the formation of the biblical canon.
• the works of a particular author or artist that are recognized as genuine: the Shakespeare canon.
• the list of works considered to be permanently established as being of the highest quality: Hopkins was firmly established in the canon of English poetry.

TRON: Uprising is canonical because it comes out of Disney, who owns the rights to it and controls the franchise. Non-canon content is stuff like fanon (fan fiction) that is not sanctioned or regarded as being "real". TRON: Uprising is "real"; it's an official part of the TRON franchise (otherwise what's it doing on this wiki?). Whether it sits within the previously established continuity is another matter, which I'll leave to those of you who are better versed in the fiction. But canon ≠ continuity. Transformers had to deal with this from virtually day one. The G1 cartoon and the G1 Marvel comic books are both canon, but they show different continuities within the G1 continuity family. All the others, such as the Bay films, Animated, Prime, Unicron Trilogy and so on are also canon, even if they don't fit together as a single continuous piece of fiction (to say nothing of such micro-continuities and variations as differences between Japanese and U.S. versions - that's a whole other ball of disaster-wax). Consider this: what are we to do if all future TRON fiction is based off the timeline/events established in this series? 118.209.88.63 10:50, June 15, 2012 (UTC)

Furthermore to add to this, right there at Comic-Con, Uprising is established to be adding new canon, plus one of the goals of Tron 3 has been said to tie Uprising and Legacy together.

Episode Articles

Do you think we should make seperate pages for episodes? Daniel1ksc 20:08, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

I do. The idea was attempted (and abandoned) with an article titled "Beck's Beginning". It still exists, but I've delete tagged it for the moment, because an infobox alone simply isn't enough. Do you have any ideas about the implementation? Basically, the media infobox is well adapted for use on each episode page (we could easily accommodate the 10 episodes of season 1). Feel free to express an opinion on a naming convention, eg. TRON: Uprising ([Se. 1, Ep. #]) [Title], or whatever else you can think of. -- WarBlade 05:39, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
Absolutely. I'd simply call pages by the episode name. Not to be that guy again, but I'd suggest taking a look at TFWiki.net and ripping off... er... "being inspired by"... their format. A reasonable rundown (not blow-by-blow), with series-wide continuity notes (eg: "Beck received half of Tron's disc in Beck's Beginning"), as well as whole-universe continuity notes (eg: existing characters from the movies making appearances, or events from previous media being referenced), cast notes, etc. The format of the episode list could be ganked directly from Wikipedia. 118.209.126.108 16:20, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
Odds are, if there's a perfect way to do something, TFWiki is doing it.--24.188.151.20 17:08, June 29, 2012 (UTC)
I think we should call the episode articles by the actual name eg. The Renegade Part |, The Renegade Part ||, Blackout, Identity, etc, or we could use the episode name and then Season x Episode y but shortened to S and E so it would look like this, "Blackout" S1 E4. What do you guys think? --Daniel1ksc 00:45, June 30, 2012 (UTC)

As far as inspirations go, I'm not totally dismissive of expanding on ideas developed elsewhere, but just to respond to a few of the comments brought up already... On Wikia we are constrained by a 700 pixel width work space which limits table and infobox options, so although I might review TFWiki or Wikipedia for how they deal with something I also have to be realistic about what will actually fit and be effective at conveying relevant information of a subject. Wikipedia cater s to a vast number of episodes from a huge number of different TV shows, while the TRON franchise currently only has one season of one show to deal with, so rather than "gank a format directly from Wikipedia" it's inevitably going to work out better to simply review and emulate anything pertinent.

Where article names are concerned, the episode names copied directly is certainly one valid option, but I've been reluctant to dive down this road out of concern that an episode might carry the same name as an existing article, forcing disambiguations that might otherwise be avoided, eg. Chaos (episode). Another option not yet suggested is structuring TRON: Uprising episodes as subpages, eg. "/TRON: Uprising/Beck's Beginning", so rather than have the episodes as 'top level' articles, they could be grouped under TRON: Uprising instead. -- WarBlade 12:24, June 30, 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguations should be nothing to be afraid of. That's the kind of thing wikis run on. What are the odds that another item is going to come up to make Beck's Beginning suddenly a huge confusing clusterf*ck?--Carrion (talk) 00:57, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
Bad example. Beck's Beginning was never in any danger of clashing with anything. -- WarBlade (talk) 01:19, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
By all means then, what is in danger of conflicting? --Carrion (talk) 01:20, July 28, 2012 (UTC)

Uprising Era Icon

We should come up with a era icon for Uprising, here is my suggestion:
Era-tup

What do you guys think?--Daniel1ksc 23:55, July 3, 2012 (UTC)


Good work daniel i like wher you're thinking 1 put 1,000,000,000 big yes

User:JarodMighty 21:11, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

It's kinda blurry and lopsided. Did you recreate it in a picture editing program, or just crop and shrink it out of a screencap or promo image?--24.188.151.20 09:53, July 5, 2012 (UTC)

Dyson page

Should we create a page for Dyson or should we wait until we get more info on him?--Daniel1ksc 18:56, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Wait. Always get facts straight first. This wiki has a real problem with contributors jumping the gun, resulting in numerous edits, re-edits, and page moves, that shouldn't have been needed. -- WarBlade 22:53, July 17, 2012 (UTC)

Gaming number parameter?

Should we create a parameter for the gaming number for each program, like Beck: 05, Cutler: 03, Bodhi: 09?

Episode Infoboxes

Would it be possible to add a "previous/next episode" space in the infoboxes on the individual episode pages?--Carrion (talk) 03:27, November 23, 2012 (UTC)
