Added DiffLines:
Sometimes, the complaints are about a sequel or remake to an adaptation, and the original adaptation actually made changes from its source material, and the new adaptation [[TruerToTheText tries to be more faithful]], but people don't know that and complain about changes anyway.

Figure this is worth an add.
Added DiffLines:
'''''Remember that Administrivia/ExamplesAreNotRecent,''''' even if you're writing up an example while fan controversy is erupting! Remember that some of us will be reading these long after the fact.

For some people, the very act of adaptation ''is'' decay. A film version of something should be a direct [[ShotForShotRemake word-for-word]] transcription, with utmost care that the sets, costumes and people be reproduced in every detail. If a character who wears a homburg in the original now wears a fedora, that will be enough to ruin the character, and therefore ruin the film. It will be all you will hear about from these fans on message boards, with them going on at length to explain how his homburg visually defined his entire personality in a way that a fedora never could.

This also happens a lot with translations. People can become religiously attached (sometimes quite literally, in the case of texts like Literature/TheBible) to one translation of a work, and when a new translation comes out they condemn it as a travesty, accusing it of distorting and cheapening the meaning of the original, whether or not the new translation is more a literally accurate rendering.

And don't you ''dare'' suggest that in changing it they made it better. If certain fans take the Chicken Little approach and announce that the sky is falling, it's mainly an expression of their fears that the writing staff [[TheyJustDidntCare don't care much]] about the source material (particularly if it's not mainstream-friendly).

But sometimes the fans who complain may be right. When producers make drastic changes just for the heck of it, it can get rid of any redeeming qualities the property had. An established franchise making sudden, drastic changes usually heralds the beginning of a DorkAge, or worse, DeaderThanDisco. See also TranslationStyleChoices, NewSoundAlbum, ReplacementScrappy, DarthWiki/RuinedFOREVER, NetworkDecay and FanonDiscontinuity. Contrast {{Woolseyism}}. May overlap with TheyDontMakeThemLikeTheyUsedTo. On the opposite end of the spectrum is ItsTheSameNowItSucks. A general trend of {{Unpleasable| Fanbase}}[=/=]BrokenBase forever plagues ItsTheSameNowItSucks and They Changed It, Now It Sucks. Sometimes a result of AbilityOverAppearance.
