muppet wiki and the many angles of puppets

I found it interesting that there are 9 aspects to track with puppets and this wiki has to track them all.
1) the character's name
2) the characteristics of a puppet character (that may span the many designs and performances of that character) including both physical and emotional aspects of the character.
3) the writers/designers of the character
4) the voice actors for that character
5) the puppeteers/animators of that character
6) the individual physical puppets (such as the particular Kermit used in the first TV appearance)
7) the many characters a particular puppet was used for
8) the various appearances of a character or puppet
9) the evolution of a character or puppet design
