  • I think we need to rebuild the canon character pages. They've become so cluttered with bad fanon content that it takes some people a very long time just to load the page. I think this fanon content should be moved to sub pages of the canon articles in order to keep them short and keep page sizes low.

    • That is not to bad of an idea. Half those Fanon's don't seem to even exist...

    • Another part of my point. Sonic's page is in such bad condition now because of some glitch. It has so many spaces in the infobox that I can't even fix it.

    • I think the canon pages could use some work, and yeah maybe make sub-pages. A good first step in my opinion though? Look through the fanon on the page and see which ones have owners that haven't been on in the last six months or so. Then, remove it. Miiight cause some problems, but it's an idea.

      Kagi take a look at Sonic's page and tell me to do that again -w-

    • Considering my internet browser temporarily froze up and I got the "stop script or continue" message before you said that, I've already got a pretty good idea of what you mean. Yeah, sub-pages would be a good idea to start off with. Quality control can go from there.

      Considering the page is source only (which is the bane of my existance) and that the fanfic's section is larger that Alcagorn's already incrediblely large backstroy, yes. A cleanup would be the best of things.

    • I had an idea for something that could also be helpful, but could potentially be flooded. Sub-pages for relatives, romantic interests, and abilities. Leave the canon characters (from all medias) in the infobox, then make a sub-page where people can put their fancharacters and their own section for their fanon.

    • Well, we should see how many fanfictions actually exist. Then how much of the other stuff doies also. It could remove at least 1000 characters.

      That was my doing just now. I did that to stop it from getting worse. The size of the page is largely due to a glitch in Wikia's visual editor which has been adding extra lines to the page with every edit that anyone makes.

      Take a look at these, and keep clicking next edit. Watch the lines grow.

      Shadow's page

    • So is there any opposition to rebuilding the canon pages?

    • nah, non from me

    • I just took a look at Sonic's page and I honestly thought Firefox was gonna crash. No page should have to do that to you. I'm all for this clean up. I'd been thinking about it earlier, actually.

    • I think that we should start by wiping the pages completely and starting from scratch. I can save all the content into archive pages or something so people can get their fanon stuff.

    • I wouldn't handle it any other way.

    • I'm all for this. They've been a mess for as long as I've been here, if not longer.

    • I know I'm not an admin, but I'm behind this.  I don't like Sonic's page at all, and just let people create their own Sonic page.

        Loading editor
    • Alright, so then I'm going to start with Sonic's page. I I'll just archive it and delete the whole thing.

        Loading editor
    • I know I shouldn't bump conversations this old, but can I start a page for the Sonic from my fanon continuity?  I noticed you finally deleted the old page (I commend you for that courage), but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to create it or if something changed.

    • The sonic page should be canon info only. If you make a subpage, you can put whatever you want.

      Subpage would be at "/wiki/Sonic the Hedgehog/Derp's Continuity"

    • I assume we don't have a specific layout for how the canon pages are going to be recreated.

    • Clean layout is all I care about.

    • I see you did it already because it just takes me to SNN

    • We still need to actually rebuild canon character articles, since ATM all they do is link to SNN.

      Last I checked only Sonic's page links to SNN. All the other canon characters still have their own pages here.

    • We also need to rebuild canon items pages
