With that in mind one doesn't even need to fuss so much about whether or not putting a focus on Amy takes away the some precious screen time from Sheldon or whatever because any Amy story can potentially involve him for the simple fact that he's her boyfriend who might actually take an interest in her ever so often. I know, shocking! Want to reveal something about Amy's dad? Have the topic of dads come up because [reasons], Sheldon asks her about her dad because she never mentioned him - and you're done! It's not something that would derail the show or whatever.

Still reacting off Sheldon making him the central plot point not an independent story line for Amy

It's as simple as the "Amy is allergic to avocados" disclosure during the S/A & L/P double date. A simple comment that Sheldon made revealed something about a characters backstory, two lines and a character is a little more fleshed out.

I think Being Sheldon's girlfriend and friend to the girls is a pretty big purpose.... 

It is but not enough for her to rise above a supporting role or a charecter whose loss would be unrecoverable for the show as the big three would be

Even Howard whose loss would be keenly felt isn't that important to the premise as long as the big three are there its TBBT lose one of them and the premise changes

But a supporting role serves a purpose no? She has had storylines away from Sheldon. But no one on the show has an individual storyline that doesn't involve another character. 

Where does this put Bernadette now she is pregnant?

She could be a seldom or never seen stay at home mom and the show would go on just as it did before she was introduced. It has nothing to do with whether the charecter is liked but are they essential to the core premise of the show as that is what TPTB are clinging to

She has a purpose but is that purpose one that can only be fulfilled by that specific charecter and I think the answer is no Penny could get a new friend, Sheldon could revert or get a new gf and the show would carry on

We were just talking about a casual line that could enlighten us about her background...For all the other characters (even Stuart) we know at least if their parents are dead or alive. I don't think that adding that piece of information would made her a primary character all at once...

They could just kill off Penny and carry on with a new gf for Leonard.

Why is this conversation even happening?

Every character has a purpose to the show and relating story either it be main or supporting. The show will change directions at times, and those characters involved will be apart of that change.

Every character on BBT has been utilized to be needed for an event to happen. Yes it can happen other ways, But the journey it's taken so far has needed these characters. And they are all needed.

neither has a place in the group with out either their significant other or Penny.

Have you forgotten The Hofstader Insuffiency?

Amy and Bernadette have several scenes, which involve none of the other characters.

Likewise, The Misinterpretation Agitation?

Amy and Bernadette have a bust up, over the photo-shoot, in a scene involving nobody else.

Nope would impact Leonard and Sheldon to much to be explained away quickly or easily, Leonard Sheldon and Penny are essential for it to be TBBT lose any of them and it is a different show

Some people apparently don't realize Amy wasn't on the show to the finale of season 3.

It's simple kazzie because people are participating in it, if you don't enjoy the conversation don't participate or try to change the subject

One episode B plots which had no lasting impact name a main plot they have carried with out another main character (big three or Howard)

Oh look. A purposeful storyline 

Yes the purpose was to make SHELDON jealous and thus make him grow not a independent plot for amy

No one as yet has named a purpose served by the amy charecter that doesn't center on another charecter

And yes the big three are so tightly woven that they all effect/act off each other that is the heart of the show and why the make the big money
