He could've just as easily been teleporting instead of phasing with everyone believing that it was phasing. He could've phased one time in the episode and teleported after. Either way, it looks the same.
It could be both. Because I think it would be weird if the shadow just walked on the street. But let's wait until it's clear that the shadow can teleport too. He's a main character now; so, it probably won't take long before we know if he can teleport.
I was wondering for species pages (like Gods, Witches, Whitelighters, etc.), should they be listed under the species category? They were removed from that category but I feel like they should remain so all the species exist underneath one page.
Also, for hybrids like Jada and Parker, should they be listed underneath both species categories (ex. Jada underneath both whitelighters and witches)?
If you don't want them in both, it makes more sense to keep the actual species pages under the actual species category and just remove the categories of the same names. The witch category should just list people that are witches and etc.
When someone is on the Demons species page, they might want to quickly get to see all pages about Demons. So, that's why the Demons page would need to also belong to the "Demons" category in addition to being a "Species" category. This makes it easier to get to all the related pages about that species... which is why categories are used.
But the "Demons" category page doesn't need to be also under Demons category. It already has a list of all demon pages.
Same thing applies to powers, spells etc. The Powers and List of Magical Powers pages should also belong to the Powers category to make it easier for readers to get to all the actual powers pages.
I wanted to add informationon the Underworld, the Hilltowne Police Department, and that Mirror Pocket Dimension we saw in the second episode but I don't see any templates for locations and I'm not sure whether to use the group infonox for the police department or would that need an organization infobox?
I've noticed for the past couple of weeks that people have been struggling with what to call Maggie's power. The show says her power is reading minds (telepathy) but she only ever calls herself an empath throughout the show which makes people want to call her power empathy. I personally feel like her power is more like empathy because they looked to OG show for material and Phoebe had empathy as a power of hers. Should we continue calling Maggie's power telepathy or should we switch to empathy or telempathy which is a mix of the two?
In my opinion, she has both Telepathy and Empathy. She can hear people's thoughts - telepathy. But at the same time, she can read / understand feelings without necessarily anyone thinking it out loud - empathy. There are cases like the Kappa scenes where she just hears the thoughts out loud without necessarily telling how they're feeling. But there are other cases where she feels their emotions without the thoughts. So, I think she has both.
I think we should list them both. I would go with "telempathy" but it's often mistaken as the ability to communicate with emotions without thoughts.
Telepathy that comes with emotional impact. She's been calling herself an empath, because she feels the person she's reading, but mainly her power is telepathy. For now, let's go with telepathy and then decide after a while. It's only the 4th episode, so we're still touching the surface.

Hey Starforce! I was wondering whether or not we should use the same infoxbox for powers for all of the spells. I'm assuming we'll categorize spells by whether or not they need the Power of Three, creator, and alignment but I'm not sure how to do that with the power infobox.
I just checked out the Infobox and there's a mistake. "created by" shows up twice when I think it's supposed to be "created by" and then "casted by". Also, I feel like instead of saying whether or not they need Power of Three, we should just state level and then use three options: low level, upper level, and only by Power of Three if that makes sense.
I liked it. The political stuff could have worked better if it came out naturally wasn't forced into an already very-packed episode. I thought they tried to cram too much stuff into one episode. So, instead of having the sisters take the time to discover who they really are on their own, they had the whitelighter tie them up and tell everything to them.
But I understand they rushed through it because they didn't want to waste our time only to retell the same basic mythology from the old charmed. So, it was more like a quick recap before they get to the real stuff next week.
Harry is okay; although I wish he was sweet and humble like Leo. I also wish the whitelighters used orbs to teleport like in the original. As for the twist at the end, I think Harry is still their true whitelighter. But something else is messing with them.
By the way, what do you think of starting Episode Discussions forums every week? They do it on most CW wikis and since we've got active users now, we should probably start doing the discussions next week.
