Is this about the staff or the crew? If it's the crew, then at least Farnsworth, Scruffy, the non-Bending Unit robots and all temporary owners don't belong here as they don't go on deliveries (excluding special occasions ie 100th). - Quolnok 05:51, 18 April 2011 (CEST)

I agree with you but you would have to ask Sanfazer. He is the one who wrote this article. Teyrn of Highever 11:45, 18 April 2011 (CEST)
I based the article on this, having previously redirected the page there. But if you feel Planet Express staff is a better name, we could move it and redirect Planet Express crew to a new section explaining what the crew is. Sanfazer 00:42, 19 April 2011 (CEST)
Did we ever come to a consensus on this? Teyrn of Highever 22:45, 5 May 2011 (CEST)
No. I was waiting for Quolnok's opinion. Sanfazer 19:49, 6 May 2011 (CEST)
I'll put something on his talk page. Teyrn of Highever 19:50, 6 May 2011 (CEST)
Here's my two cents. To me, the word "crew" means specifically people who operate a ship. But we've set a precedent here of calling the entire staff for the show "crew" -- Because this word can also mean anyone who works to operate almost any undertaking. Like a film crew. And according to Wiktionary "A group of people (often staff) manning and operating a large facility or piece of equipment such as a factory, ship, boat or airplane" --Which I think would include Planet Express. So there's a ship crew and there's the Planet Express crew. I think the term is fine. --Buddy 21:11, 6 May 2011 (CEST)
So we just have to make a note of the two uses of the term? Teyrn of Highever 00:34, 7 May 2011 (CEST)
I don't think so. To me, the crew is all the PE staff. Some of whom just happen to also operate the intergalactic spaceship. --Buddy 04:43, 7 May 2011 (CEST)
In-universe "crew" is used to refer to the ship-based staff only in The Cryonic Woman, The Route of All Evil, The Sting and Space Pilot 3000. A Clone of My Own uses the term three times in reference to the ship's crew (and Zoidberg if he feels like it) and once to the whole staff (or not, if the letter was only for some of the staff). That Darn Katz! has Nibbler wanting to be a crew member, but as he's usually on the ship it's ambiguous. The Futurama Holiday Spectacular seems to use it to refer to the whole staff. So while both can be used, crew as ship-based seems to be more technically correct. - Quolnok 05:18, 7 May 2011 (CEST)

Full stop, period.

Am I the only one for whom the bullet lists look a tad awkward? They're just items, not sentences--do they really need the period at the end of every line? --Buddy 11:46, 4 June 2011 (CEST)

No, you're not alone, it does look awkward. Teyrn of Highever 11:49, 4 June 2011 (CEST)
You're right, I'm sorry. They've been fixed. Sanfazer 19:13, 4 June 2011 (CEST)
