Dear Narutopedians.

I'm an avid Wiki-editor, and Narutard, and frequently I love to visit Narutopedia for those very reasons. But, and I hate to say this, one thing really confuses me about this Wiki. And that issue is, why do we treat the Tv Series as equal to the manga?

Don't get me wrong, the series is an integral part of the Naruto fandom. Yet, and I'm sure many do agree, I believe the manga (and author's statements) are the only resource that should ever be consulted for Naruto information.

My Suggestion: We should seperate articles by "canon" and "non-Canon." Characters and information used in fillers should be under a section labeled "non-canon," so several canon-oriented Narutards such as myself can tell the difference between what appears in the manga, and what appears in the Naruto show.

If anyone here would like to e-mail me at withmycat(AT)yahoo(Dot)com I'm fully willing to help accomplish this task (I realize it's a big one!).

I personally would think it would be better if we would simply ignore what is considered canon and whats not considered canon. For example: In to many articles (particarlly the main characters) have that annoying subsection "Filler Arcs" which I don't like. The flow of the pages would work better if they were simply treated as they were intended as, add ons. So instead of going from "Blah Blah Arc" to "Filler Arc" we instead simply use whatever that 'arc' was called. Though I have completely confused myself. I was awake for to long.--TheUltimate3 03:37, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Actually, in order to make a true filler arc, they must first consult the makers of the Naruto Manga themselves to see if they like the addons

Therefore, they can in a way, be considered canon, as the makers of Naruto verified their additions
