Relationships pages for main and supporting characters?
Well then how about changing the personality section to a personality and relationships section. I've seen other wikis do that sort of thing. Plus I think i've been seeing people claiming that Naruto having a relationships section in unfair, so this might help make things fair. What do you think?

Like maybe something like this:
At the start of the series, Sakura had a deep infatuation for Sasuke Uchiha, rooted in his good looks, cunning, cool attitude, and prodigious talents. For that reason, many of Sakura's early appearances were dedicated to her continuing efforts to win his affection. As the story progressed, she began to recognise Sasuke as a real person with imperfections, and developed a more sincere desire to be there for him and later fell in love with him. Sakura also became concerned that Sasuke will someday abandon her and the rest of Konoha in his quest for power. When her fears came true at the end of Part I, Sakura did all that she could to stop Sasuke from leaving, such as professing her love for him and offering to join him. Despite thanking her and sounding grateful, Sasuke knocked Sakura unconscious and left the village.
Since then, Sakura has made it her personal goal to bring Sasuke home. Although she still worries about his well-being, Sakura is willing to attack him if it means returning him to Konoha, however, as time goes on and Sasuke becomes an increasingly more dangerous criminal, Sakura recognises that Sasuke must be stopped at all costs. Despite agreeing that they had no choice but to kill Sasuke themselves to prevent Konoha from being involved in a war by his criminal actions or his death at a foreign country's hand, Sakura was immensely saddened and distraught at the notion nonetheless to the point where it drove her into trying to take care of the Sasuke situation by herself, showing with her making the rest of Konoha 11 promise to let her be the only one who talks to Naruto while it was her plan from the start to not tell him, along with planning to knockout her hunt group when getting close to Sasuke despite promising that they would do it together. Later on, she told Naruto that she no longer has any feelings for Sasuke since he just keeps breaking her heart and states that she loves him instead, though Naruto and most of the observers knew that she was lying and suspected that Sakura was hiding something. Her team-mate Sai at the time even commented that she was still in love with Sasuke, which is later proven to be true, and that she wants to kill him by herself so that he does not sink any lower. Upon meeting Sasuke once again, Sakura becomes upset by how corrupted Sasuke has become and tries to kill him. She ultimately cannot bring herself to do so, being brought to tears as she started remembering all they went through together as members of Team 7 which caused herself to be left wide open for Sasuke's nearly successful and fatal counterattacks. She has since come to accept that Naruto is the only one who can do anything about Sasuke with a stable, strong and clear resolve. Though she is deeply saddened by what Sasuke has become, it is shown when he is mentioned that she is still in love with him nonetheless.
Sakura's relationship with Naruto, like with Sasuke, also changes throughout the series. When they first became a team, she held contempt towards him, going as far as to insult or degrade him at any chance she got, and even stated that the one thing she does not like was Naruto (mainly because he interfered with her attempts to gain Sasuke's affections and for being a constant nuisance at the time ). However, as the series progressed, Sakura realised that her negative views of him were wrong as Naruto continuously showed his worth as a ninja as well as his dedication to his team-mates. After the Chūnin Exams and missions, Sakura realises that Naruto is getting stronger and envies him, so she decides to train harder. After Sasuke defected from Konoha, Sakura pleads to Naruto, believing him to be the only one capable of bringing Sasuke back. When Naruto promises to bring Sasuke back to Konoha, Sakura realises just how committed Naruto is to her happiness, and how he has always been there for her. However, Naruto fails and is left in the hospital after losing to Sasuke, though he vows to someday fulfil the promise he made to her. Realising the lengths Naruto will go to for her, and inspired by his determination, Sakura spends the next three years training with Tsunade so that in the future she can join Naruto in his quest to bring Sasuke back.
In Part II, Sakura learns of the various hardships Naruto faces: the Nine-Tails and Akatsuki. Saddened by the impact both forces have had on his life, Sakura becomes protective of Naruto and tries to do whatever she can to help him overcome these obstacles. Sakura begins to empathise with Naruto, and develops a deep friendship with him, due to their spending a lot of time together, even though there are times where she lies to him about certain things, particularly involving Sasuke in a way, along with her hyper criticism still going strong. Despite her criticism, she has developed great fondness towards him and often worries over his well-being. Later, Sai explains to her just how deep Naruto's love for her truly is, and the level of pain that trying to fulfill his promise has caused, filling Sakura with guilt and regret, ultimately resolving to take care of Sasuke by herself. After the events of the Five Kage Summit, she confesses to Naruto that she loves him, no longer caring about Sasuke, and tries to get him to give up on his promise, an attempt to ease his pain over the promise. However, Naruto does not believe her, and claims she is lying to herself, stating he knows her better than that. Sai later confirms this, and tells Naruto and his group about the ulterior motives of Sakura's confession, stating that it was actually an attempt to release the promise Naruto made for her and distract him while she and her group hunt down and kill Sasuke. Despite this cruel emotional manipulation on her part, Sai, from his perspective as a member of Root, explains that she was only thinking about Naruto's feelings, which is why she refused to tell him the truth about Sasuke being killed, as she knew full-well how much pain that would cause him, although Kiba and Lee thought that Sakura needs to have more faith in Naruto's mental endurance and believes that it would have been a better idea to just tell him the truth. Although she is now aware that Naruto loves her, Sakura while still caring for him as a close friend and team-mate, does not reciprocate these feelings for him as they are ultimately one-sided on Naruto's part. Even when she told Naruto that she loved him and she no longer had any feelings for Sasuke, Naruto wasn't fooled by Sakura's "confession", and knew all too-well that she was lying and that despite the heinous acts Sasuke committed, resulting in him to becoming an international criminal, she was in love with him nonetheless, a fact proven to be true by Sai and later on by Sakura herself during the war.
