Please, if someone is in the process of creation of pages for the characters of a reality, do not "interfere" in the process. Although it's obviously in good faith, it might a little annoying finding conflict edits and having to create any page which wasn't created like appearance category pages or galleries.
I wasn't aware that someone else was in the process of creating those pages. How can one tell if someone else is already in the process of creating a page? Because in my experience, those types of pages are usually left incomplete, or uncreated, for a long time.
