2. No articles on upcoming media/leaked info: Do not create any article on villains from upcoming media, be it movies, games or anything else. Not only this could figure huge spoilers, we would never be able to determine the veracity of the information on such pages which could be nothing more than speculation. As a general rule, you should wait a few days, at least a week since release before creating an article.
Okay, so I've been thinking about this category removal and I'm even starting to consider it. If someone does have a sad backstory and uses that to become a villain, does it really justify any evil acts they have done? No, because they just don't care about becoming better characters. We can sympathize with heroes because of their tragic past because it can excuse what they do; it doesn't excuse what villains do. I got this idea from right here:
I just don't see how a villain can ever be tragic based on what they've done. If they do anything horrible, then that's their fault, and their backstories don't justify anything like that. So, should we cut the category or keep it?
Is the Tragic category there for villains we can sympathize with becuse of their sad backstories, or it for villains whose evil actions are justified because of what happened to them beforehand? If the latter, then I don't think it should be here, as a sad backstory doesn't excuse a villain's actions, but it can excuse a hero's actions. A villain with a sad backstory just doesn't care to be a better person; they became evil because they decided to become evil.
Tragedy still steered them down a villainous path. It really depends on the thoughts of the individual if their actions were justified. Much of the time though, while could perhaps understand why they have done things that set on the path of villainy, their actions are usually not justified.
The Tragic category is for villains whose backstories either surpassed their crime or made them sympathetic. Aside from the flashback scene, Lotso was never painted in a sympathetic light, and his actions went way beyond tragedy. Yes, often times, Freudian Excuses do not justify being flat-out evil, but if it’s enough to make audiences feel sorry for the villain, the Tragic category stays.
Thanks for your feedback in the background blogposts, especially on the red background. We made it darker to prevent it from being a problem to the eyes of some users and more details can clearly be seen now.
that works better, the previous one was a little too similar to the type of red you'd find on hidden puzzle games or the infamous Nintendo Virtual game thing.. the darker shade means it will be kinder of the eyes of those prone to any headache or eye strains plus characters are easier to see now.
Hi, I was wondering if I had your permission to restore the Knuckles & Hutch (Bounty Hunters in Suburban Commando) page that I created before but was deleted. I have many ideas to make it special and more interesting including a biography. Thanks DisneyFan18111928 (talk) 22:17, February 14, 2019 (UTC)
