Pitching a suggestion for new rules

13

A few weeks ago, you made a rule saying that characters should only be on this wiki if they're poorly written or pointless. "Don't just pick a "mean" character/villain and put them on this wiki, as they are needed for carrying a story along. This wiki is purely for characters that are badly written and just plain bad characters."

I propose a new rule: characters should only be on this wiki if they're not only pointless/plain bad/poorly-written/flanderized, but also unlikable characters (like Lynn Loud or Pink Sheep, who abuse Lincoln and Purple Shep respectively), do very inappropriate things (like Robin and Popoy, who are perverts), do things that make them very unlikable characters (like Kylo Ren, who causes temper tantrums and has mental issues), hated characters (like Jar Jar) etc. No mean villains or anything like that.

Excerpt from Chicken Little on Awful Movies Wiki:

2. Chicken Little's father, Buck, is also unlikable since he doesn't support or protect his son and even acts like he's not his father. And even though he realizes that he had been a jerk in the end, it still doesn't make up for how cruel he had been to Chicken Little before.

3. Not only Buck, but Foxy Loxy, Goosey Loosey and Mayor Turkey Lurkey are also unlikable characters.

Yes, I know, I'm not an admin, but these are just suggestions for rules. What do you think?

Kylo Ren's problem isn't being unlikeable, it's being a weak, wimpy villain who is defeated by someone who never trained for a swordfight in her whole life. Say what you want about Obi-Wan defeating Darth Maul, but at least he had trained and was motivated by the death of his master.

That's not the problem with Darth Maul, about Obi-Wan not being a Mary Sue: he was easily defeated by Obi-Wan way too early, which is unacceptable because he had potential. But then, Lucasfilm screwed things up by pointless bringing him back into The Clone Wars, Rebels, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

What? You said it yourself that one of his problems was being defeated by Obi-Wan. Make up your mind, dammit.

"Say what you want about Obi-Wan defeating Darth Maul, but at least he had trained and was motivated by the death of his master."

"Obi-Wan isn't a Mary Sue" isn't the problem: the fact that he easily defeated a villain way too early is.

Unnamedgoon (talkcontribs)

What, were you expecting Obi-Wan to spare him after he killed his master?

FreezingTNT (talkcontribs)

I'll do you one better: did you expect Kylo Ren to spare Snoke in The Last Jedi?

I really don't think you can turn that into a whole page.

Matthew The Guy (talkcontribs)

I'll have to think about it.

We could add the list of forbidden pages, so I may write a list right now, then it might get a chance to be on the main page.

Wasn't not allowing being unlikeable as a reason the point of the new rules?

Excerpt from the wiki rules:


"Don't just pick a mean character/villain and put them on this wiki, as they are needed for carrying a story along. This wiki is purely for characters that are badly written and just plain bad characters."

I'm suggesting new rules for more characters that should be allowed on this wiki.

Made a blacklist of characters that are forbidden.
