Ask Slashdot: Maintaining Continuity In Your Creative Works?

Aug 23

imac.usr writes: I recently rewatched the Stonecutters episode of The Simpsons and laughed as always at the scene where Homer pulls into his parking space — right next to his house. It’s such a great little comic moment. This time, though, it occurred to me that someone probably wrote in to complain that the power plant was normally in a completely different part of town, no doubt adding “I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.” And that got me to wondering: how do creators of serial media — books, web comics, TV shows, even movie serials — record their various continuities? Is there a story bible with the information, or a database of people/places/things, or even something scribbled on a 3×5 card. I know Slashdot is full of artists who must deal with this issue on a regular basis, so I’d be interested in hearing any perspectives on how (or even if) you manage it.
