I kinda have to agree with Puxlit that people's issues with shipping posts seem to be more because they're low-effort than them being shipping by itself. That is, they're not inherently bad, so banning it outright sounds a bit too extreme.
Giving those its own category could help, but I do not know how much work would be needed for that, and how much it would change Discussions. I know many places tend to have shipping be its own thread/category as a standard practice, so it doesn't get in the way of those who don't care about it.
I don't really want to ban anything that's mostly harmless to the wiki and the community, and that many people engage upon.
Although to be fair, I'm not that aware of how much discourse it may cause. At the very least, shipping fanart should be allowed, since a piece of art being present means there's at least some effort put into the discussion.
Something should definitely be made about low-effort shitposts and off-topic discussion that has nothing to do with MHA. It's the one thing I'm 100% agreed upon. Same for the the "best whatever" posts.
Essentially, what we're looking for is images like the ones on the right.
This measure is being taken not only to reduce the workload on our hardworking Image Department's team, but also to improve the quality of the information displayed by the wiki. English scans take several liberties in regards to stuff like translations, cleaning, shading, sound effect placement and certain other details, which might conflict with our intent to display only factual info.
You will not get punished for uploading an image that doesn't meet our quality standards as it is an easy mistake to make, and we will be more than happy to help you out with advice and such. We'll only take action against repeat offenders.
Feel free to post here or contact anyone from the Image Department or General Admin team through the wiki or the Discord server if you have any doubts about this new policy. We can also help out with requests for images and gifs or teach you how to create your own images for the wiki if you end up having any trouble getting them yourself.
I disagree entirely. After all, character articles do have a summary of the Quirk, so it's not like every reader will click on the Quirk page proper when they can just read the summary. They can completely gloss over the page, the one thing that says it's conjecture.
Thus, the reader can be misled.
Maybe putting it in italics could work, but then that could require a note.
DN brings a good point with the misinformation spread. We should not use the conjectural names outside of the conjectural page, otherwise it does a bad job of stating that the name is conjecture.
I personally like the idea of using the conjectural name solely for linking, with "Character's Quirk" being the actual presentation. It's my idea of compromise between parties.
You know, like this: [[Cremation|Dabi's Quirk]]
I think the time for Bakugou to become a villain has already passed. He is more or less resolute in being a hero.
Besty, that's not how it works at all.
If we can't prove that Horikoshi is involved with Illegals, then we can't confirm it's canonicity. The whole point of "innocent until proven guilty" is that we have to assume that the person didn't do anything instead of having done something, and we have to give proof that the latter happened (this is why the burden of proof is in the prosecution). In this case, we have to assume Horikoshi is not involved instead of actually involved (which we would need to prove).
If we go by your logic, then we would have to give the same treatment to all games, light novels and spin-off material by default. They would be canon until proven otherwise. We'd be opening a nasty can of worms.
By the way, Kishimoto is indeed involved with Boruto, in a supervising role (otakukart.com/animeblog/2017/06/17/boruto-reveals-kishimoto/2). The article even points out how fans doubted about Boruto's canonicity, but then they went on to prove that it was canon by revealing Kishimoto's role.
What defines "connected to the manga" though? The light novels are connected to the manga, SMASH is connected to the manga as it is done by Horikoshi's former assistant, the games could be considered connected too...
This is the issue with making Illegals be canon. We are giving it special treatment, despite Horikoshi not being any more connected to it than any other spin-off. Illegals is nothing more than a parallel story with characters from the main story showing up every now and then.
The default is that anything not made by the author is non-canon. This is something many other wikis follow through.
This is Horikoshi's story. If he thinks the spin-off is canon, then he should say it, or acknowledge that stuff in his work through cameos or whatever. If he doesn't confirm anything, then it's not canon until proven otherwise. The one element he apparently brought from Vigilantes even has reasonable doubt put into whether it's the actual stuff or not.
After all, let's not forget, there are several games, novels and anime fillers that don't contradict anything in the manga, but we wouldn't consider them canon. Can you prove Izuku didn't actually fight the Zookeeper or Bearhead? Heck, Horikoshi himself designed those characters. We can't use a different standard for Vigilantes.
We've had this discussion before.
If it doesn't show up in the main manga work, then it isn't canon. This is how it is with most series. MHA is not the only series with spin-offs.
Now, it's possible for elements to become canon by having them feature in the main work, like Trigger, but that doesn't automatically make the whole spin-off canon. Notice that Horikoshi himself dances around calling the drug by its name in his work, even though it's obviously Trigger. He wants to keep a certain sense of ambiguity about the whole thing, most likely to keep the stories separated from each other so that the timeline of events doesn't become hard to follow.
We should be using the English name. There's more than enough evidence that's official and it's already coined in the West. The meaning is exactly the same as the Japanese one anyway.
The official anime site uses the English name as well. It's the same source that gave us "Ochaco, Shoto, Bakugo", among others: http://heroaca.com/
You guys are taking it a bit too far. No need to bring all those statistics.
Ochaco was just facing someone that was a much more dedicated and talented fighter, but was able to keep up for a while through her own strengths.
Move variants do not have their own pages. They're all listed under the base move page (Detroit Smash, in your case).
The one person Yuga has shown any sort of attraction to is... himself. He is just your typical narcissist.
Keeping this discussion going is useless because anything else is speculation.
Romantic attraction between characters is barely explored in the series, so anything besides Minoru's personality or Ochaco's feelings is nothing more than just a guess.
Tearing wire from the places they're plugged in is easy. I never mentioned snapping the wires.
Dumb thing to focus on anyway.
That exam is exclusive to recommended students. They have to take an exam as well, after an interview.
The regular exam is too easy for them.
Brain death means that they're not "alive" anymore.
The Nomus are proven to not be conscious beings, as a police analysis showed. They're pretty much puppets that can even be programmed to follow certain orders given by certain people.
They're probably beyond human rights at this point. There's a reason they're considered artificial. No better than robots, really.
