Okay, I think we've gotten a bit carried away with a certain something, especially when it comes to this page.
Dr. Weird has a lot of family members, but most of this comes close to violating the Canon Policy. Bare in mind that I don't think it completely violates the canon policy, but it leans more towards being incorrect than being correct, if that makes any sense. I think a lot of this could be moved to the "Trivia" portion of the article, which is pretty bare bones as of writing this post. I think this is a major problem with pages on major characters. We consider everything canon, when there are very few things that can be backed up with evidence. Furthermore, the part about Dr. Weird being an "Antler/Human Hybrid" is jarring. Dr. Weird said he attached it. He didn't alter his DNA, as far as we know. Thus, I think we should start a discussion on our :General Wiki Discussion" part of our forum about what can be posted on a page (in regards to the canon policy) and what is considered "canon with just one episode." It might be hard to discuss such a thing, but I'm starting to think it's becoming more and more necessary. What do you guys think? Should we start a discussion or just clean up this page? Or, should we just leave the page the way it is? Edd Shwartz (talk) 18:07, December 19, 2014 (UTC)
I'm going to start the discussion page in the forum soon. Well, I might wait until after Christmas, or maybe I won't. I'm not sure. Edd Shwartz (talk) 20:31, December 23, 2014 (UTC)
I won't be using my textbubble template because of the length of this post. I tried starting the thread, but the more I wrote, the more it seemed like a waste of bandwidth. I think we should just discuss the issue of infoboxes here.
What I originally wrote for the thread:
I believe that we need to have a serious discussion in regards to the Canon Policy. According to our current policy, nothing is canon. Characters constantly die only to reappear in a later episode. The biology behind the Aqua Teens (Visible Frylock) is constantly contradicted. Meatwad's birth date is put into question morethanonce. The background of the Aqua Teens isconstantlybeing re-written. We all know that Aqua Teen Hunger Force barely has any continuity. However, a lot of content on the Aqua Teen Hunger Force Wiki, particularly the information found in the infoboxes, violates the canon policy. For example, Pages like thisor this feature infoboxes that severely violate our policies. They both feature a "family" section which attempts to list every family member possible, despite the lack of continuity it creates. It's time we have a discussion on whether something can truly be considered canon. This thread will henceforth serve as the place to discuss any pieces of information in regards to the canon policy. At least I think it will.
Before we begin, I must say that, personally, I think that the "Family" section should be removed because it really only applies to Carl. Not many characters (besides those on the List of Incredibly Minor Characters) have stated having family members (who aren't on said list). When characters do prove to be family members (such as the Aqua Teens supposedly being brothers), it's usually done in one episode only. Besides the Mooninites, the Plutonians, MC Pee Pants, and Dr. Wongburger, most villains do not come back for a second episode. That's just the structure of the show.
I wonder what Siberian thinks of this issue. Edd Shwartz (talk) 04:54, December 29, 2014 (UTC)
I am fine with isolating it to the trivia section. --Siberian99 (talk) 21:48, January 13, 2015 (UTC)
Okay, I fixed up the page as best I could. The film becomes rather confusing when you take into account that the creators have confirmed the Aqua Teens to be creations of Dr. Weird. I worked with the canon policy as best I could. What do you guys think? Edd Shwartz (talk) 22:42, January 13, 2015 (UTC)
Looks good to me, Chibi. If you could, I'd appreciate it if you would elaborate on the part about Steve being Dr. Weird's guinea pig, specifically the idea that Dr. Weird does not care at all for Steve's safety. I've always interpreted Dr. Weird as being a sociopath, to be honest. Overall though, job well done.
