well, admins who r reading this (hopefully), i have been thinking and thought that it may be a good idea to have each user (with a fanfic) add their character, friends, and enemies to the Character page. if not, than perhaps we can make a page titeled fandom characters, it would make the character page look more crowded and add to the contributions of the users. its another way of resurructing this dying site. please consider this though and think it over, aand i am awaiting ur response. Thank you,

- No. Fanon info can stay in userspace. Filling the site with fake characters, and non-existant info isn't ressurecting the site. That's killing it. SLJCOAAATR 4 6 8 15 16 23 42 108 305 316 23:48, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
I was going to agree with Chosen Water, but now that your saying that...I agree with you. That's true. S.H. 07:48 PM, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
- And no offence to you, Water, but, all the fancruft is kinda what destroyed this site in the first place...... SLJCOAAATR 4 6 8 15 16 23 42 108 305 316 00:54, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
*Checks his own pulse* What?! We're dead or dying?
Y'know, with three proactive bueraucrats, back-catalogueing of old Zones proceeding apace, Rainbowroad working on Sonic Riders, flashy new templates all over the place, advertising campaigns on SSMB, Archie Sonic issues being individually made into epic articles, our lightning-fast coverage of Sonic and the Black Knight, and an average of
OVER 9000 over 120 edits a day in recent times... I'd say we were pretty much alive and dancing. Non?
ANYWAY... no-one's stopping you making fanon character pages. In userspace. But if we legitimised mainspace fancruft, all the official pages would be crawling with OMG Rougez tr00 luv is my fan chara Asterisx da hedgekidna and dey have 3 kidz called Krystal & Starshine & Amber wiv powerzz of fire ice & lignting!!one!. And then people like ME, who (on top of editing) use this wiki as a resource for useful information when they're writing a fanfic, would flee like rats on a sinking ship. SLJ's right. Letting fanon crawl over mainspace would be a death sentence.
My work is done on Sonic Riders, though. If anyone feels uncomfortable about some of them, its fine with me to edit it, but I think we all know NOT to take out most of the information and then say..."The first track..."the second track..."the third track"you know what i'm sayin'? For an example, when I returned to the Mario Kart Wikia to check out how things were going, somebody literally almost took out all the details to every page. I wonder how the administrator(his name was MarioGalaxy[with numbers at the end])felt about that. You can go ahead and say what you want about what I just said, but lets not try to change the subject. S.H. 08:29 PM, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
- There was that fancruft site... remember SLJCO? The one I said could come in handy somehow?--Mystic Monkey 02:00, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
