Result: Blogs that contain fan-content with no relation to canon characters will be removed once the info is transferred elsewhere by the author
I think we should add something to the blog policy to clarify that if a blog has nothing to do with Sonic, then it's a non-Sonic blog and will be deleted. I'm seeing a lot of blogs about fan characters, for example. Not about Sonic fanfic that happens to include fan characters, I mean purely about fan characters with no involvement of any official characters or any real connection to the Sonic series/universe. Surely then, it's not related to Sonic? (Recent examples include: User_blog:Pikatwig/My_Burning_Way_Past_Cool_Drawings,_and_other_pics., User_blog:CelestetheCat1/Sam_versus_Celeste and User_blog:BlazeChance1/Anthony_the_Hedgehog_REDESIGN.) Add it to the list of things that people should use the Sonic Fanon Wiki for. -- Supermorff (talk) 15:54, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Sonic Fan-Fic doesn't have to have Sonic in it. You're rule is going to get lots of good people banned.

I'm moreover neutral over this, I partially agree with you that these aren't technically Sonic-related, but they do take design of anthropomorphic animals of the actual series. I can't really think of which side I should go with. Serious Sam Minigun icon Heavy 16:13, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

I'm gonna side with Morff on this one. If it's not gonna have Sonic in them, what's the point? This stuff should be in the Fanon wiki. --  Splash the Otter   C  E  16:14, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Great. Now I feel bad. Ugh. I dunno what to do now. I could get blocked. BlazeChance1 16:23, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

You're not going to get blocked. This wouldn't be a blockable offence, just like non-Sonic blogs aren't a blockable offence now. Just any such blogs would be deleted. -- Supermorff (talk) 17:02, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Oh. Ok. BlazeChance1 17:04, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

I'm in agreement with implementing this into the Non-Sonic Blog policy. I see many users constantly making blogs about their fan characters and fanfics, but the SNN is just not the place for that. EYCEST★R 18:23, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

No offence but this is a Stupid rule. Pacmansonic138 19:02, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

I don't approve. If you want people tocomment on fan-fics, it's easier using blogs. --I'MA FIRE MAH LASER! BWHAAAAH!!! 19:12, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

I don't like this idea. Sorry, but I just don't. Just because a Sonic character isn't in it doesn't mean it's not Sonic related. They have Sonic fan characters, and too me, that's enough to make it a little Sonic related. Sorry again, but I oppose. --Lightning the Hedgehog

So you'd be okay with an ongoing blog series about the romantic adventures of Abalone the Hedgehog, with no canon characters from the Sonic series and no badniks, as long as I said that Abalone was Sonic's long lost brother? What exactly is the limit here? -- Supermorff (talk) 19:26, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
First, I must say how whenever I make a comment like this on a forum or a blog, someone must say something to go against my opinion. Isn't it interesting? And I believe that as long as a Sonic fan character's in it, it can be Sonic related. And I don't know what you mean by limit, too. But this is all MY OPINION, and I'd appreciate you not trying to change it. --Lightning the Hedgehog 19:46, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
There is no limit people can make fan-fiction however the want. It's their choice. We don't have to put Sonic and Co. in it.--

They got a point there Morf. BlazeChance1 19:50, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Fanfiction itself is not even supposed to be allowed here. Yes, we allow you to create pages for your fan characters, but putting this into a blog is going a bit too far. The blog is exposed in the community, the more popular it is, the higher of a chance it has to be featured on the "Hot Spots" section of the Wikia Activity. We don't want our viewers to think that fanfiction is the "Hot Spot" of the SNN, do we? That is the Sonic Fanon Wiki's forte, not ours. The SNN is supposed to feature official installments of the Sonic universe, not the fantasy of one's fanfiction. Once again, SFW is the place to go if you wish to express that. EYCEST★R 19:56, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

But, I like brownies. (Translation = But, SFW sucks.) BlazeChance1 20:04, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

At this point, I will agree with this new rule. DF has brought up a good point about SFW being the primary database for fanfiction. Serious Sam Minigun icon Heavy 20:04, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Ok, SFW is a great place for fanon but the fanfics, capital UGH!!!!! The fanfics suck, badly!!! I don't want to sound mean but they just suck. BlazeChance1 20:07, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

You don't have to read other fanfics. I'm trying to imply that if you need a place to store your fanfics, then instead of putting that information into a blog here on the SNN, why not add it to the SFW where that is more than welcome? Also, more people will view your fanfics there. EYCEST★R 20:09, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Even with Fanfic we're still SNN. I don't see anything bad like a Kitty-Apocalypse happening whenever people post fanfic here. I don't know why people are getting so freaked-out over this now. Nobody really had seizure over it before.

Take my money whoever opposes! BlazeChance1 20:26, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

What if it has an element from the main Sonic series? --I'MA FIRE MAH LASER! BWHAAAAH!!! 20:29, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Dark, incase if you don't remember Sonic Fanon Wiki = Internet Heck. It's also safer to show Fanfics here. Pacmansonic138 20:35, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Well, you do have other options. SFW is definitely not the only place that you can showcase your fanfics. Like me, for instance, I'm making a website for my fanfics. And I'll also be making use of YouTube and deviantART. EYCEST★R 21:11, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

You guys went too far. This wasn't even passed yet, and my fan-fic blog is gone. Not a trace. Not even a message. What happened? --I'MA FIRE MAH LASER! BWHAAAAH!!! 22:03, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

This is too far. It's unfair! I don't want fanfiction to disappear! I work hard on my stories, and I won't watch them be deleted for such a stupid reason as some frikin' rule. I'm officially ticked off. --Tyler the Hedgehog"The ultimate son of a gun Charmcaster!" 22:13, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

This isn't even passed yet, and they're already deleting fan fiction blogs? That just isn't cool. Like they said above, it's not fair, and this is going to tick off a whole lot of people. Why would you delete a blog when this isn't passed yet? If I were you, I'd put back that blog and WAIT for this whole thing to end and see if you CAN delete it. --Lightning the Hedgehog

It's bad enough we already have so many blogs about Fan-characters, and hardly any of them appear to have any relation to Sonic or Sonic-related things in the first place. It's not that I don't appreciate the characters in general, but it's a bit of a problem to be using a Sonic wiki -A place for info and for a lively community- to have the blog hot spots flooded with fan-fictions and fan-characters, as stated before. This rule should be fine to pass as long as people can come into contact with each other on the SFW. Is there anything wrong with that? No. Why? Because you don't have to interact with other users there, just by your friends, if you're that concerned with the situation. If you don't like the idea, then make a separate wiki community based on Sonic Fanon for your own fanfictions, without containing a giant-ar*e community. And PKMN, that was rather rude of you to insult some of the members. Serious Sam Minigun icon Heavy 22:36, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah.. Heh, heh.. that was rude now that I look back. Sry --Tyler the Hedgehog"The ultimate son of a gun Charmcaster!" 22:40, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

I'm fine with removing blogs. But I would rather have us keep Fan Characters linked to User pages like Splash and Aurora the Otters. If we all do that I would be fine. But I would also like to know what would happen to art blogs. Will we still be able to keep those? --  Splash the Otter   C  E  23:01, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Your userpages are fine. The blogs are the only things that are going to get deleted.

@PKMN I'm considering blocking you for that rude comment you made. @Time Biter Your blog was deleted by Supermorff. Ask him why he deleted it. EYCEST★R 23:03, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Blog was deleted (before I even thought of making this site discussion) because it looked like a story with no relation to the Sonic series except that you claimed it was fanfiction. Having looked at it again, I notice that you mentioned Downunda, in passing, once. So I've put the blog back until the discussion is over. -- Supermorff (talk) 23:14, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

I also mentioned Apatos. --I'MA FIRE MAH LASER! BWHAAAAH!!! 23:19, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

I stand corrected. -- Supermorff (talk) 23:24, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
Does mean I can't do Spritalicous anymore?--

I'm against this. There are fandom-based forums (which we have), and there are also blogs like Tip of the Day, and my own User blog:Kagimizu/Statyx Comedy Moments. Fandom blogs are a way for people to share their creativity and imagination without having to go to a completely different wiki with its own set of rules and its own community. Plus, whatever happened to "if it's related to the User, it's allowable"? I'd say one's own fandom is related to the poster. I mean it's one there can and should be limits, but the wiki is still a community: expression and creativity should be allowed to be put on display. And FYI for those who say a direct relation to characters should be a requirement: being able to make a character that stands on their own as an individual without the "crutch" of having a direct relation to a canon character(s) is usually a sign of creativity. While a video game series and franchise, the fact is that the Sonic series gives us a whole world to work with; not every person in that world needs to know Sonic or Knuckles personally.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 05:45, February 7, 2012 (UTC)

Well put Kagi. It certainly was well thought out (unlike my comment. lol). --Tyler the Hedgehog"The ultimate son of a gun Charmcaster!" 22:46, February 7, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you PKMN.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 01:00, February 8, 2012 (UTC)

I think as long as these sorts of things mention relation to Sonic in general than it should be fine. I think I'm moving back to neutral, I mean blogs are good for sharing your fan-creations and anything of that sort, but I think we just need to make it related to canon. Coming to think of it again, blogs are used well for this sort of thing (such as Cesar's art blog, Kagimizu's blogs mentioned in one of his previous posts), and (I think) all appear to have inclusion of Sonic. Of course, we can't go entirely overboard with fan-creation and turn this into the SFW wiki (which isn't likely to happen). (Please excuse my post if it seems slightly redundant, I'm a bit tired) Serious Sam Minigun icon Heavy 01:13, February 8, 2012 (UTC)

Kagi, both of the blogs you mentioned include Sonic characters, so wouldn't be affected. And you can't use "blogs about the user are allowable" to justify blogs about any character created by the user. Blogs about the user should be about the user.
Also, FYI, being able to make a character that doesn't rely on Sonic characters as a crutch might be a sign of creativity, but it's also a sign that it's not a Sonic character. I'm all for creativity, as long as it relates to the Sonic series. And a story about the cousin of a rival of a friend of Sonic's daughter really shouldn't count if Sonic himself never shows up.
Actually, could people answer this question: If a writer could just as easily set the story on an original world of their own creation, and thus have the potential to sell the story and maybe make money from it, why would they choose to set it on Sonic's world?
EDIT: Mew, this would not stop you from making Spritalicious because it Spritalicious includes canon characters. -- Supermorff (talk) 19:11, February 8, 2012 (UTC)

I'm starting to see your point Morff (That, or I'm happy my series uses Sonic characters lol) Srsly though, I'll remain on the fence about this. --Tyler the Hedgehog"The ultimate son of a gun Charmcaster!" 16:06, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

I'm on the fence on this matter, as well.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 07:32, February 10, 2012 (UTC)

Nobody seems to be able to argue against my latest points. How's this for a compromise: existing pages (before the rule is passed) won't be deleted until they are transferred in whole, with all comments, to Sonic Fanon Wiki or other wiki of the user's choosing. -- Supermorff (talk) 17:03, February 18, 2012 (UTC)

This is reasonable enough, I'm in total agreement. Serious Sam Minigun icon Heavy 17:13, February 18, 2012 (UTC)

Right, since there are no other opinions, and Kagi has agreed to help move blogs over to SFW, I am going to add this to policy now. -- Supermorff (talk) 19:42, February 21, 2012 (UTC)

I must say that I'm still apprehensive about this and do not really support it, as it further restricts non-chat community discussions, but I'll try and help the best I can.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 06:13, February 22, 2012 (UTC)

Meh im kinda okay with this rule i mean ive already posted me stuff on SFW so yeah --WORK THAT SUCKER TO DEATH COME ON NOW 22:54, March 23, 2012 (UTC)
