I want to get the Complete Monster and Magnificent Bastard pages better organized, but there's a big factor in the way that worries me. Could you help me settle on what to do here?

What were you wanting to do exactly?

DocColress (talkcontribs)

Basically help to organize and tidy up the pages' entry content and the discussion pages for them. The concerning factor is the user Weedle McHairybug, who has a history on both Villain's Wiki and All The Tropes Wikia of being very confrontational on matters edit warring with others, and saying very uncomfortable things concerning his own moral beliefs and religious dogma that spark theist debates. (Like, on Villain's Wiki he argued against Frollo being labeled a CM because supposedly his fear for his immortal soul that made him spare baby Quasimodo was a redeeming quality to him, and if you recall he'd edit warred with me over a ridiculously long Maleficent CM entry that he bogged down with unnecessary opinionated details and was reliant on information from an unofficial "sequel" children's book.) Already, he's been deleting entries I've tried adding or re-adding to pages, not only on the main pages but on the discussion pages as well. He's pretty much exactly the sort of user I've gotten accused of being and I really don't feel like I have the patience to deal with him again.

Go nuts.

"Go nuts?" I'm not really sure what you mean or what that'd entail. ;:D

translated = do what you want there

Basically, you have broad leeway here. Use you best discretion and do what you feel best.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

Well, I'll see what I can do. I don't want to come down too hard, but if that user pushes things, I'll have little to no other choice.

Semi-related, but rather than changing Complete Monster on this wiki too much to the point of making single example pages for individual works (something I'm still very much opposed to), I think a better way to expand the trope would be to create subpages of it that the Wikia version has but this version doesn't.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Tell you what, you can port over pages the Wikia versions has that this one does not, just make sure no one has plagiarized material prior to doing so. That aside, what you want to do on Wikia seems to be eminently reasonable, so use your discretion there.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

I will try to be as thorough as I can. And thanks for letting me know - I intend to use discretion and try to be cautious and reasonable.

Endorsed. Just tag me in there on contentious debates and I'll referee if need be, no need to bring it up here.

DocColress (talkcontribs)

Understood. And thanks. :)
