Just found out about this on Ask The Tropers
, and I think this is actually quite an issue we've got here - I mean, it's not a serious issue now
, but it has buttloads of potential to eventually become one in the future.
While seeing Unpublished Works treated as Darth Wiki items is kind of derogatory
, it nonetheless reminds us that, while we don't have to have strict verifiability standards, we also should have some
. For example, I often see something interesting in some tropes' "Comic Books
" folders and then end up in long Wiki Walk
s in the scans_daily website, either to provide a link or just out of sheer curiosity. I don't know if the "un-sourced" Comic Book examples' scenario I provided is as much of an important case as the others presented in this thread, but I think it nonetheless counts as an example of what verifiability standards should prevent in the first place.
I think we should have some of these standards, while also not going "Citation needed"
because comparisons to Wikipedia are already all over the place as-is.
