  • I deleted that latest page you created because it was a ripoff of TV Tropes, which has a different license now.

    Either make your own version from scratch or don't bother.

    Plagiarize again, and you will be banned.

    • Just saw your from scratch version of that page.

      Much better.

  • Have you considered porting them to our Miraheze branch?

    You can find it at:

  • Plz add categories to pages you create, like so:

    http://allthetropes.wikia.com/index.php?title=Tomboy_with_a_Girly_Streak%2FLaconic&diff=301414&oldid=301410

    This makes sorting them much easier when doing maintenance.

    • Okay, new question: What gives you the right to alter the requirements for a CM? I don't think you understand exactly what a CM is. It's more than just an evil character with no redeeming qualities. It's a villain that is so utterly depraved that you feel uncomfortable for having to watch them and beg for their just desserts. I'm sorry, but whether you like it or not, a lot of the examples you've listed are too generic to qualify.

    • LOL no, you just proved that YOU don't understand exactly what a CM is. "A villain that is so utterly depraved that you feel uncomfortable having to watch them and beg for their just desserts" was the original and OUTDATED definition of the trope. You want to know why such a meaning does not work for the trope? Because an audience is not a Hive Mind. Not every member of every audience is going to react the exact same way to the exact same villain - it's impossible. Going by that definition is what got bad examples like Discord, Mr. Krabs, Peter Griffin, Jeff Fecalman, Katejina Loos, Loki, etc. added to the trope back when it was heavily abused. Because certain audience members hated them to a level of uncomfort and begged for their just desserts.

      "A villain who you really hate and root for their comeuppance" could apply to literally any villain, which means ALL examples would become generic, and "a villain you can't enjoy watching except when they get defeated" suggests bad writing, since a CM should engage the audience in the work just as much as any villain, not turn them away from it in disgust. 

      I am not "altering" the requirements for CM - I'm reinforcing them as they are on here. We have an exact criteria that boils down to a villain is truly heinous in nature, behavior and actions, commits horrible crimes, showcases no redeeming qualities, has no justification or traits that mitigate for their villainy, and is unrepentant 'til the end. If a candidate hits off all of those criteria (or in some cases only ambiguously falters on one of them but passes the rest), then they qualify for the trope regardless of how fans might feel about them.

  • They use a license incompatible with our own. You may create your own version of a page they have, but you cannot rip off their version word for word, in whole or in part.

    Further, even if you do copy a page from somewhere to use a base for a page here, you must make sure the license of the page you copied is compatible with CC BY-SA (Public Domain, CC-BY, and CC-BY-SA are acceptable) and you MUST cite the URL of the copied page in the edit reasons for attribution purposes.
