Sandbox / Works That Require Cleanup of Complaining

Go To

This is a sandbox for keeping track of the various work and creator pages that have attracted Complaining About Shows You Don't Like, on- or off-page. These work pages require a cleanup to remove complaining, and the wicks may also need cleaning as well. If you find a work or creator page that has attracted quite a bit of complaining on one or more of its subpages or in its wicks, add it here. Or, if you would like to help clean up any of the pages or wicks listed here so that they may be removed from the list, you are encouraged to do so.

Works listed here must attract actual, current complaining that exists in large amounts, not "potential" complaining, complaining that has since been deleted, or complaining that exists in such small amounts that it is not worth listing here. (Note that works with small, but still noticeable amounts of complaining are allowed to be listed. Those are usually easy fixes anyway.)

NOTE: The content on this page was migrated over from Infamous and Controversial Works, of which this sandbox is a replacement for. It was expanded from the original definition so as to allow for a broader definition of work and creator pages that need cleanup of complaining.

Most of the complaints appear to stem from a Single-Issue Wonk regarding the show's uncancellation in 2013 and the cancellation of Demo Reel, and the alleged Seasonal Rot that followed. This usually manifests as character bashing, including misrepresenting jokes as more serious than they are, and occasionally making creepy personal remarks about the actors themselves.
