  • Hi,

    Having voted on your PE proposals about the James Bond villains and The Asset, I was wondering if you have any plans to nominate other 007 villains. Some Villains pages (Red Grant, Franz Sanchez, Elliot Carver and General Medrano) have the "Pure Evil" category without having been approved and I would like to know your take on whether they should be approved or not. Regarding Grant, Carver and Medrano, I'm still hesitating but it's been months now that I would like to take the category away from Sanchez who in my opinion had too many likable moments and mitigating factors in the film. What do you think ?

    • Hi there. Yeah, I had a feeling you might ask me that since you seem to be one of the few here who's interested in those movies. It's... complicated. From what I understand, Red Grant is listed in the category because of his novel counterpart, and I haven't read the book, so I can't really comment on him. His film version is pretty evil too, but I feel like he's pretty standard for a Bond henchman. Franz Sanchez and Elliot Carver, I can't really comment on either, because their respective movies are two of the fewer Bond movies I haven't seen yet, so I can only speculate. In fact, License to Kill may be one of the only Bond films I'm not comfortable seeing because of how dark and violent is. Apparently, it's even more visceral than the Daniel Craig movies. As for General Medrano, I've seen his movie, Quantum of Solace... but I'm not sure how I feel about him. He stands out in his own small way for being a rapist, which is rare for the James Bond series, but I feel like he mostly only stands out for that, and even what he did to Camille's mother and sister is only hinted at. Other than that and trying to rape his waitress and Camille, I feel like he's pretty standard for the franchise, and he only has maybe 10 minutes of screentime. 

      So yeah, I'm kind of stumped on what to do about those remaining characters. I can't make up my mind about Medrano, and License to Kill just seems too nasty for me to enjoy, which makes it hard to decide for myself if Sanchez has some redeeming qualities in spite of his brutality. I'd be open to watching Tomorrow Never Dies if I find a copy of that around my house though, so I could end up doing a proposal for Carver eventually, since from what I've read, he sounds like a pretty easy keeper. I'll let you know in advance if I get around to it so you know when to look out for it.

    • I understand, thank you for your investigation, maybe a PE removal might be appropriate for some of them in this case. Speaking of PE villains, several villains from the Arroweverse (an extended universe that I'm quite a fan of) also have the category without being approved. PE proposals for this universe are quite rare and I was wondering if you are familiar with the series or if you can get someone to come up with proposals.

    • No problem. Unfortunately, while I know of it, I'm not personally familiar with the Arrowverse, so I wouldn't be qualified at all to do proposals for anyone from it that's in the category and deserves to be approved. I'm positive that there are at least a few users here who would be familiar with it though since there's a number of them who like anything having to do with Marvel and DC Comics. I'm just not sure who would be best to ask.

  • Guess who's back from the back baby!? Anyways, I saw your proposal of Delphine Eraclea and I have nothing but to say easy yes to her. I'd say the reason why I'm okay with her inclusion is because of how horrific her regime is given we saw several of the resources of innocent ships that were being plundered by her so that she could enjoy her lavish meals and how she kept the war going? That's one thing that made her pass. But the worse part of them all is what he had done to her brother, Dio, it's just that effed-up and personal enough that I think made her an easy pass. 

    Anyways, I'm currently working on Dragalia Lost villains so I think I won't have time to propose some PEs or vote on some of them. But even then, I'm also wanting to try something new for a change when it comes to blogpost so yep...

  • "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

  • 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).
