The example from "The Sandman," under "Comics," should be removed. I read it, and thought it sounded bogus, so I wrote to Gaiman and asked him if it was true. His response was, "No, it's bollocks." (That's a direct quote.) If there's an admin I need to forward the e-mail to, to prove it, I'll be happy to.

The Nyota Uhura, Hikaru Sulu, George/Winona Kirk and Coruscant examples are not Ascended Fanon, but Ascended Word of Dante, since they are about Expanded Universe material becoming canon.

Removed the following from the Video Games folder, Grand Theft Auto section:

  • A moment that some say was for the worse in terms of the gaming word...However your opinion WILL be different here depending on your views.

It's an irrelevant snipe that seems to exist solely to rile someone up.

About the Soarin' Cutie Mark thing: Is this a definitive case of Ascended Fanon or is it merely I Knew It?

This article was previously known as Sure, Why Not? (Ptitlekzrxgx4f).
The old titles contribute an additional 488 and 3,996 inbounds, respectively.

Pulled this:

Pterry actually always used "one about football" as an example of the acceptable face of fan speculation (see here, here and here), saying it was an idea that might get written if he thought of a plot, rather than the in-depth storyline synopses which ensured that, if he was thinking along those lines, he certainly wasn't any more. (Before The Truth, "one about journalism" was another example.)

Why is there no mention of Rare on this page? The things that become cannon for the Banjo-Kazooie series is huge.

Then add it. You're allowed.

Codenamehunterwolf, contacting the mods for this issue is a waste of their time since the picture is clearly Just a Face and a Caption. That fact alone is grounds for deletion as stated by site policy and they will tell you the same thing.

You clearly want this page to have a picture, so just submit your proposals in the Image Pickin' forum.

Why don't you? You clearly have a problem with the image so come up with a better one. I'm keeping the image until the forum staff says otherwise.

I don't have to come up with a "better" one because a page doesn't *have* to have a picture. I've already explained this and met the burden of proof on my end. I cannot think of another image that wouldn't be Just a Face and a Caption so I'm leaving it blank. Just because I'm deleting something based on site policy doesn't mean that I'm hiding behind the rules in order to get what I want.

Is this really worth an edit war?

If you look half the site is Just a Face and a Caption. I don't see you goosetepping all over them. If you were to go on a crusade then I'd be happy to leave you to it. However you seem to have centered on this page, so the way I see it these are your options.

  • Troll TV Tropes and get rid of every image that is Just a Face and a Caption.

  • Select a better image.

  • Call in the moderation staff and let them come to a decision.

  • Get out of my face and leave the image be.

Beyond that I can not help you.

Troll? Image vigilantism? We're two people having a disagreement, nothing more, nothing less. Don't turn this into something it isn't and don't presume to know what I have or have not done on this site.

Well have you gone to every other page to delete the images that are Just a Face and a Caption? Have you? Or do you for some reason have an obsession with just this page?

You do realize the reason I paid attention to this page in particular is because you kept re-adding the same picture, right?

So do the other pages get a pass or something? Because I see a lot of pages out there that are Just a Face and a Caption, yet nothing seems to be done. So are you going to go off on a crusade against them or are you just going to camp here?

<Mod Voice> One bad page image is not an excuse for another. We have an Image Picking forum precisely for the purpose of selecting good page images. This page ... there's no reason to have an image for it. I am removing it. The next person to add one will be banned.

You said no, so no it will be. That's all I wanted.

Would "Snakes On A Plane" be a possible addition to the film section? After all, the original script did NOT have Samuel L. Jackson uttering the phrase "I've had it with these [mother-fornicating] snakes on this [mother-fornicating] plane" until scores of fan-made trailers for the film featured variants of this line.
