I've just had what may be a bright idea - or it may not, I'm too sleepy to tell!

Rather than trying to add all the various names, maybe we could have some more general ones, something along the lines of 'Other Staff', 'Other Girls', 'Other Family' etc - that way, people can still search for less major characters they're interested in, without clogging up the list with every single name ever connected with the school!

That would be great, especiallly for me - I'm trying to only list characters with reasonable amount of story, but theres still a lot of them !!

Seconding this - started off wanting to list all of Joey's children, as by the end of The Calendar they will all have appeared, but now just showing Jo herself as she is character in all posts - but 'Other Family' would be brilliant :)

Corney Flower has a few drabbles about her.

Also, Josette Russell, please. She is too major to be classed as 'Minor Character(s)'.
