It was from a different person, but it was another case of "I see something missing, so I'll makes something up to fill it in." In this case, it was the middle name, and I saw that the person who invented birth and death dates on other pages added them to both pages.
What I recommend is that when you ask someone to explain why they added something like this and they don't answer after about a week, feel free to remove it. Chances are, they made it up. Middle names (and sometimes last names), specific birth dates, specific death dates and even ages aren't always necessary to tell stories like this, so it's common for fans to invent those without proof:
"The character's alive, so therefore they had to have been born. I haven't seen a birthdate mentioned, so I'll make one up and put it in. And they're going to die sometime in the future, so I'll make up a date they die on, too."
"This character is in the episode. They have to have had a mother and a father, but neither has been mentioned in the series, so I'll make up a mother and father and put them in."
What I've told others is, "If the writers didn't feel it was important to include information like that in an episode, don't try to do their job for them."
The Rich Text editor and the Visual Editor have always been a little squirrelly about how they affect the page code, but I think I saw the same thing on another wiki recently. I was going to try making the same edit under my account since I use the Source Editor and see if it did the same thing.
I just wanted to let you know that I accidentally created a page for the Huntsmaster from the episode 31st Century Fox, but didn't know that there was already a page called The Master of the Hunt. I apologize for this mistake, and ask that if you could delete it, so we don't have two pages of the same character. Again, I'm sorry for the mistake.
Hello! I was wondering if you had given any thought to having content about Worlds of Tomorrow on this wiki? It would be a big change, but it could also help get things more active here and bring in a good number of new editors. If not, it's understandable. Sometimes a separate wiki is best, and http://simpsonstappedout.wikia.com has done pretty well.
http://futurama-worlds-of-tomorrow.wikia.com has been created and there are a few editors getting active there. If you wanted to have the content here, now is the time to do it and possibly harness those first editors to help get started. If not, perhaps you can give that wiki a boost by linking to it?
