Think Satan's part on the 'Even Evil Has Standards' part should be edited to reflect what happened in The Cat In The Hat?

Should we include The Writer and other people from that universe?

No, that universe was created in To Boldly Flee and has tropes there, not the Critic's show.

On the character page, can we reference To Boldy Flee stuff or do we want to keep it separate? I mean I can see there's no point to duplicating too much but the NC's final fate - his Heroic Sacrifice, which leads him to Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence are fairly big deals for the character.

And Doug/Rob confirmed on the commentary that the Plot Hole began in Scooby-Doo (they only fixed a small part of it with the sacrifices). Add in the Character Development and self-esteem issues, and it's the most tied in. So that's my vote for referencing but not too much duplication.

Re: Mara Wilson as the site's first celebrity cameo: Do Kyle Hebert and Spike Spencer count as celebrities? And does Tom Green showing up in one of Little Miss Gamer's videos count as a cameo?

Am I the only one who believes that the characters list is going a little overboard with the Broken Bird/bratty/creepy physical tropes or at the very least could be be dialed down a bit?

Well he is fucked up and bratty so I think those are okay, but I do agree with you on the "OMG so pretty!" bits. I like him as much as any fangirl, but it would be nice to tone it down a little. Do you wanna do it or shall I?

Not nearly to the point of what this page make him out to be. You can start it and we'll go from there.

I think the problem is that those tropes are all people put on, y'know? They're canon, he's said them, but he's also done other stuff which makes him more than just a one-note woobie. Anyway, I've deleted some tropes and trimmed down others. I might add a few ones that aren't "aww, poor baby" after I go on a binge later.

As someone who has added a lot about how fucked up he is, I apologize. But I think emeriin is right, Doug likes making his life a misery and people evidently respond to that. I'll try adding some other tropes later too.

"Doug likes making his life a misery." You're coming off as sounding as Doug is making his own life a misery and we all know that it isn't true. All things considered, Doug, on his own, comes off as rational and down-to-earth and much less Keet than what this page has made him out to be. And I think that is my main issue. Where did he say Broken Bird status is canon other than saying a more pathetic potrayal is funnier?

Shit, sorry. I meant "his" as in Critic, I'm not the best at English. And I don't know about Broken Bird (isn't that female?), and I'm just going off what Critic has said about stuff, that's what I take as canon. Sorry I pissed you off.

Okay, I've added a fair few more tropes, as much as I can with my headache. Hopefully it's looking a little less one-note. :)

I don't understand where these various "Abusive Parents" tropes are coming from. Was there a background video on the critic that I missed? I don't recall anything about abusive parenting, drunken mother, etc.
emeriin

Not one video, just references throughout. Like the picture of his parents as monsters in "Old Vs. New Willy Wonka", the thing about his Dad in the Alaska review and still loving with Mom in the Chick's TLC ep.

Before the move, the Critic was listed as Megane. Which (if any) from the disambiguation list fits?

He's (unintentionally) cute and sorta woobie sometimes. Meganekko would fit better than studious or kinky sadist.

I was thinking that, but it's indexed under Always Female. I'm not entirely sure why Meganekko is on the Megane page, as it states "Note that boys cannot properly be called "meganekko"; the term refers specifically to girls."
