|Life on Wikipedia; Todd needs a spin-off

"Contrary to the mistaken impression that everyone is on an equal footing, Wikipedia has an elaborate hierarchical structure which is infested with cliques and factional conflicts. Acquiring the support of a prominent member of the oligarchy that runs it can be an effective way of getting something changed, possibly against lower-level opposition. Romantic relationships are just one of many ways that Wikipedia's processes can be gamed."
-- Wikipedia's school for scandal has plenty more secrets to reveal, from The Guardian, linked here not for Wikipedia-bashing but rather giggle potential when imagining how this might translate to various existing fandom wikis
In other news, I am sorely tempted to leave a comment on Stargate Atlantis writer/producer Joseph Mallozzi's blog, after he revealed that
"So far, we have Todd slated for three appearances" in Season 5.
Only three episodes with the breakout star of Season 4? That's all you could come up with for a compelling, charismatic character who's got chemistry to spare with everyone he deigns to share a scene with? Think of all the great stories that you could be telling! Todd and Teyla -- the Pegasus galaxy's answer to Bonnie & Clyde! Todd and Ronon, on the run from Genii mobsters! Todd and Sam race against the clock to shut down an Ancient device poised to turn every star in the surrounding systems into black holes! Not to mention all the gaps in Todd's backstory, his mysterious childhood (I'm guessing that he was a lonely but plucky orphan, taken in by a hive queen version of Miss Haversham, or possibly a Colin-type in a Wraith remake of The Secret Garden), his past loves.... If anything cries out for an all-singing, all-dancing musical episode of SGA, surely it's The Life of Todd!
Anybody up for a write-in campaign?
I'll be boycotting the write-in campaign. Once one's ships become canon, they get really boring. And TPTB are never going to give us Teh Hott Gay Action that so many of us crave*.
*Nor will they give us the much-needed Hu$tle crossover, the Con of Wraith.

Aw, who said anything about making ships canon? I just want a Season of Todd!
Start watching Torchwood instead ;)

I love you.
