  • "I already feel like the way the PE category and the proposals have been handled has been steadily improving, but it certainly doesn't hurt to reinforce a couple more points or so. In particular, I agree that people should really know the work they're proposing from, and by extension, the character they're proposing rather than doing it just to see them get approved as quickly as possible. For what it's worth, I, personally, have only proposed characters from works that I've seen, and in the cases of more dated ones, I made sure to watch them shortly before proposing the characters they're from to make extra sure my information was accurate. After all, while I enjoy making proposals and feeling like I'm contributing something to the wiki, I also think it should be more about quality rather than quantity."

    I kind of wanted to confess something about you. I'll admit that I'm a person who ended up making quantity over quality EPs back when I was a TV Tropes user and it's going to be the same as me in Villains Wiki. If I'm being honest with you, I have my reason why my to-do list and discussion dates was pretty much bloated or too much back when I was a TV Tropes user who loved to propose Complete Monsters because this is my raison d'etre or new obsession now. I don't know why but yeah...

    That and I wanted to be in the Cool Kids club if I propose several CMs especially the ones who came from popular series or female villains and at the very least, make my existence meaningful by contributing through EPs instead of being a drone who always votes a lot which I hate the most. That's why I kind of wanted to imitate a bit with the likes of Lighty and Scraggle because they seemed to get a lot of praise due to not only being veteran users but also the amount of the candidate they had proposed and having a good streak of approved CMs.

    I know it kind of pushing the trope into the badge of honor territory. But even then, I admit that I tried too hard to imitate the likes of Lighty and Scraggle because I wanted to be in the cool kids club and find my own purpose to live as a human being. That and consuming more media means I get a lot of inspiration of making several stories.

    • I was actually already considering voting on it, because even though I haven't actually watched any of the Fate/stay night series, I still have superficial familiarity with, and, by extension, with this Ryuunosuke Uryuu. So no worries, I'll get around to it soon. But you know, on the topic of proposals, it doesn't seem like a lot of people have been voting on most recent proposals lately. I wonder why that is? I'll admit that I, myself, have only voted on a handful of them, but that's because I happen to not be familiar at all with most of the recent candidates brought up, and that's always how I've based which ones I vote on. However, before it seemed like even many of the ones I didn't vote on easily had a sufficient number of votes for a consensus, whereas now, many candidates are only just getting the few they need to be approved. Maybe most of the candidates that have been brought up lately happen to be obscure to most of the regular users here?

    • Guess probably either the lack of the familiarity of the work or people just didnt care. That and some of them didn't bother to do research so I'm not sure

  • Would you be so kind and read and vote?

    Sorry for not writing it in our usual thread. It's just that so many topics are pending, and I don't wanna spam things up until i'll come up with comments to all of the topics.

    • It's okay, I get it. I'll see if I can read it and vote.

        Loading editor
    • Okay, I just read it, and like before, I found it quite entertaining, so thanks. As for who to vote for, I'm honestly not sure since they each have certain points in their favor, and I haven't stopped to compare them and who I prefer more.

    • Maybe you'll have a more definite favorite in episode 6. It will feature Indoraptor vs Cujo. The only JP villain who have my sympathy vs the only Steven King villain who can compete with Carrie when it comes to being tragic.

      Also, do you have a favorite judge/ideas for replacement judges in case some judges will be competitors?

        Loading editor
    • Hm... good question. It's hard to say who my favorite judge is, and as for potential replacement judges... I know it's all made up and what not, but several that I personally think would make for interesting and/or appropriate choices are Scar (the Lion King character, not the Fullmetal Alchemist character, especially since he's such an anti-villain anyway), the Nolanverse version of the Joker, Frieza and Darth Vader. Those are a few that come to mind, anyway.

    • I wouldn't compare myself too much with those other users; some people just have a naturally strong understanding of all the strict rules in place and work really well within them (and even then, I feel that, ironically enough, they're still far too loose in certain respects). Just because you're not one of the top contributors doesn't mean you're useless and not doing any good. If anything, you should be proud that you've gone this long without getting into trouble considering how easy it is to be in trouble there even if you're a genuinely non-malicious user. Besides, no matter who you are, there's always someone else you can compare yourself unfavourably to in some respect. Nobody's perfect or good at everything. Also, TV Tropes isn't the sort of thing that should affect your self-esteem and self-worth; after all, it's just something people use for fun as a hobby. Unfortunately, it also happens to hold everyone up to ridiculously high standards that only a small number of people can completely meet. If anything, you're in the same boat as many other people.

    • Fair point...I think at best, I might going to take a break from TV Tropes indefinitely for now so that I need to recover from my depression a bit but yeah...

  • It's me again. Sorry for the absence. Anyways, I'm going to admit this. Around October, I actually managed to complete my own story for Halloween and if you want to read it, here's the story in question:

    Feel free to give some thoughts on it and some constructive criticism if you want. The story is actually was inspired by Hansel & Gretel so yeah

    • Oh, hi. That's okay, we all need to take a break sometimes. This wiki is just a fun hobby that most people use on their spare time after all. It looks pretty long, but I could try reading it when I have enough time, which if I do, I could certainly try to offer feedback. Also, just one question; how appropriate or inappropriate is it in terms of content? Because the amount of profanity in it, in particular, would play a big part in how fine or uncomfortable I am reading through it. I hope that's understandable.

        Loading editor
    • Cool. As far as the profanity goes? I tried my best to keep it a bit minimum. But we'll see about it. Hopefully you'll like it

    • Okay. Well if that's the case, I'll at least give it a try at some point. It's really neat that you at least occasionally write your own stories somewhere!

  • Hi. Sorry if this question might come across as sensitive but I heard that you got banned from TV Tropes. I wonder what's the reason though?

    • I've never really used TV Tropes all that much, but I do remember looking at the headscratchers section of Child's Play and there were some pretty salty people who were acting rude to people just beacuse they didn't agree with their theories. It's the same reason I don't go on the forums for the FNaF wiki that much anymore because it's the same type of deal. So I kinda know what it's like to be disrepected when you didn't really do anything wrong in the first place. But I'm glad that my comment helped you and I'm also glad that the Villains Wiki has been treating you better.

    • I'm glad/grateful about that too, as well as that you understand my feelings on things like that. And yeah, I can totally seeing that being the case in the headscratcher section for a work like Child's Play. After all, the kinds of people who watch those sorts of movies to begin with probably have much looser standards in general with regards to what they consider acceptable, and it's easy to see some of them not having an especially respectful attitude... which is ironic, since TV Tropes seems to value that so much. Maybe those are the tropers they should, at the very least, be edit-banning (of course, if you saw that a while ago, maybe that did happen later on).

    • Oh hey, thanks! It's nice to know someone shares some of my interests, especially in terms of music! In terms of the artists you listed, I know all of them with the exception of maybe 4 or 5. The ones I'd say I really like would be; The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Clash, Kiss, and maybe Soundgarden. I don't listen to any of them super regularly, but I like quite a number of songs by all of them. As for groups I don't listen to regularly by any means, but still like a fair bit and listen to them every so often, I would say; the Ramones, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Pink Floyd, Megadeth, Johnny Cash, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Motorhead, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. I'm only slightly familar with the rest and have heard them once in a blue moon, and in the case of a few, I've only heard of them by name. I hope that gives you an even clearer idea of what I like!

    • It does! Thanx 4 the response, man! :)

    • Hi there. I apologize if this seems random, but after thinking more about my initial response, I'd like to give you a somewhat revised answer; in addition to the ones l listed, I'd say Judas Priest, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and to a lesser extent, maybe Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains, are actually among my semi-favorites from that list, while The Clash is more of a group I like a little, but less enthusiastically due to only really liking and being familiar with a few of their songs. Just thought I'd let you know. And with regards to my response, no problem; I'm only on here as more of a part-time hobby, but I like to be responsive and social in general if others send me messages.
