Now that my week-long ban is lifted and I'm feeling calmer about this matter, I hope you may allow me to ask for civil discourse where those who voted in favor of that page can have a chance to explain their position and why they think the page is worth keeping as is, and I will take those points into serious consideration. I will NOT be attempting to push for the page's immediate removal or trying to delete it myself or mess with it in any way, so don't worry about that.

Also, if I may present my reasoning for being opposed to the idea you and LulzKiller put forward (putting all entries on subpages devoted to their work then and turning the communal pages for the series' into links to the sub-pages): not only would that be too time consuming and too much effort just to tear apart subpages that were just fine and workable as they were in order to create a gazillion new subpages for individual works (that would naturally contain very little content aside from a single entry or four), but it would be particularly disheartening to me because I put a lot of work into tidying up those subpages as they are, and I always enjoy looking at them as they are from time to time, so to see almost all of them turning into communal hubs for links to other, smaller pages that contain writeups I'd helped put on this Wiki to start with, but separated from the other writeups so that it just wouldn't feel right. Call this an autistic thing if you will (I do have Asperger's) but losing the Complete Monster pages as they are now would crush my spirit for going forward on this site.

As I said elsewhere: It is true we're not like TV Tropes in how we run things, but this should not mean we're the Anti-TV Tropes in regards to how we handle and manage trope content, and from what I can tell, a series having a Complete Monster subpage AND all the individual works that are part of that series having their own YMMV pages means that nothing was broken, nothing needed fixing.
