Talk:Homestuck

Jump to: navigation, search

This page is a diaster for a number of reasons.

I was going to add something amusing like: citation needed for this statement. In the future, it may be more productive to describe what is wrong with the page and how you plan to improve it. Also, when we use talk pages we usually sign the discussions so we can track who is talking. You can use two dashes followed by four tildes (sp?) The sig line can also be found in the edit buttons, second from the righ. I like most of the edits and pulled in some names that had been dropped off in the previous round and added them to the section which asked for more names.--MeeDee (talk) 15:35, 28 June 2013 (UTC)
it may be more productive to describe what is wrong with the page and how you plan to improve it. The editor did, though. "it was an unholy, outdated disaster and i made it beter. im going to make it even better. im going to cite shit. i'm going to organize and categorize shit. its gonna be goddamn incredible." It's just that the info was only in the edit summary and not on the talk page. ;-) --Doro (talk) 18:35, 28 June 2013 (UTC)


Todo: add more info on /r/homestuck and the Homestuck Discord. Lots of drama, some interactions with Homestuck authors. Some of this info is in the linked 'Several People Are Typing'. Also, there's a PDF of interactions between moderators and Hussie here (link to source), haven't read much of it yet. Some of the other side of this should be on the twitters of the rest of the Homestuck team. Notable figures: makin/makinporing, previous and current admin, and Drew Linky. --DivinerSpirit (talk) 00:43, 11 October 2020 (UTC)


I don't think this page is following PPOV, which is why I flagged it. Also, marking ships as "canon" in Homestuck is a strange choice considering the nature of "canon" in Homestuck is different and the character relationships change a lot throughout the main story and various spinoffs. --Mozaikmage (talk) 22:27, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

Any specific complaints re: PPOV? --DivinerSpirit (talk) 20:17, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
I noticed some discussion about this page from Nov 18th (here, though it looks like the issues from the Twitter thread were already edited out, I think. Regardless, it may be that some people feel the shipping section needs more details and perspectives on the shipping. I don't know enough about Homestuck shipping to make any good edits myself, but it may be a good idea to have someone familiar with the shipping to review and revise the shipping section if there really does seem to be a PPOV issue within it.

Wank and Conflicts Section

Can we make plans or a dedicated effort to tackle this? Most of the rest of the page has seen a lot of improvement, but this section is still mostly a mess of brief bullet points and no useful explanation. I'm not familiar enough with most of it to explain from personal experience or research it.

I think the examples need to be sorted into groups (e.g. wank over canon, headcanons, shipping, etc.) so we can start with giving overviews. And the character-specific ones should be moved to the character pages unless they were really widespread.--caes (talk) 20:10, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

It might make sense to just make a separate "Controversies in Homestuck Fandom" page. Many of the one sentence explanations could be expanded into their own full sections. --DivinerSpirit (talk) 04:30, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
If that's true and some of the controversies are big enough, they can have their own pages too, like the ones in the Scandals category Patchlamb (talk) 17:11, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
As far as I know there are no other pages on Fanlore dedicated broadly to controversies in one fandom, but I think there could be something more specific like "Homestuck Fandom and Race" or "TPTB's Involvement with Homestuck Fandom," plus the specific pages for the really big controversies. But my concern right now is that if we transferred these fragments to other pages they would still just sit untouched.--caes (talk) 19:55, 22 November 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, I see now that making a page just for controversies would probably just end up the same as the section. That would make this page look better but I don't know if having it be a separate page would encourage it to be fixed up. Personally I don't feel up to doing the research required for these controversies. Too bad that tumblr is so painful to search through. --DivinerSpirit (talk) 08:32, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
