Flash, I asked if I could adopt a two characters not too long ago. And the last time I checked the Character Adoption Page, which was only a few days ago, I saw I never received a response from you. I hope I'm not being a bother in telling you this.
Hi Flashfire! In light of a couple of questions I have about Volhur and some long-overdue work that I need to do on the Smuggler's Alliance, would I be able to talk to you on Discord? If we could do that, that would make things a lot easier. If not, I can work around that, but if you can use Discord, that would be nice. (Also, if it comes up, over at Discord, I'm Wikikinetic#9710.)
Heh; I've put up with people using that meme everywhere from DnD and video games to roleplays; but most of the memes of that kind just annoy the living daylights out of me. Glad to know I'm not alone in that.
I found a recolor of Shadow and put up a recolor banner. But...if the recolor isn’t removed in (insert certain amount of days here), are they prone to immediate deletion? And what about joke characters? Reason why I ask about them is because I plan on making a Mary Sue version of one of my OCs, which would also be a recolor (or at least, crudely drawn). I wouldn’t want my future page to get deleted, so I’m double-checking on the rules.
As far as I'm concerned, no, not really. I typically mark Mary Sue or Gary Stu alternates as being done intentionally, and I would argue that if you state it clearly on the page, or with the admins, then it should be allowed to stay.
I have never agreed with that rule personally, I find that a lot of gag characters get swept under the rug because of it, and also a lot of newcomers who lack artistic skill can't show what their characters appear like.
Mary Sues and joke characters are fine. Recoloring images, however, is not okay. We don't really care if your character is supposed to look like a red Sonic as long as you try to draw him yourself. As far as our policies go, art theft is not allowed in this wiki.
In these cases, only the recolored images are removed, not the entire page. However, failure to comply with warnings regarding the recolor could lead to the page's deletion.
