Are we allowed to get rid of Mobius' stupid retcon page yet?

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
While I don't agree with his views, either, it's separated from canon very clearly (and the title says explicitly who the author is), so I don't see why it should go.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
It's bollocks that basically encourages people to ignore FS1 from canon. It also has the unwanted side-effect of people using this contrived retcon bull**** to explain discrepancies in canon rather than thinking up of interesting in-universe theories (like ST:R).

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
If other people see it as such, then let it go.

Okay, while an admin is at it, could he remove all the other articles in this category?

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
You know... I disagree that it should (have?) been deleted. If it says NOT CANON at the top and who the author was, it's fine. Besides, it's interested to read through what :v: changed from FS1 to FS2 in that way

I see it as more of a history article than a story/canon/explanation article.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
Well my vote goes to bringing it back. Personally, I'd like to read things that could shed some light on why say... the ST:R team did what they did as they tried to bridge FS1 and FS2.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
Do slather a big huge "non-canon" (and possibly "this is all a theory from a single member of the community") all over it if you bring it back though :P

Which means that unless you have a very convincing reason, you will never see that article again.  :P

It was there. It read something like: "The decisive majority of the community offers alternate solutions."

Well my vote goes to bringing it back. Personally, I'd like to read things that could shed some light on why say... the ST:R team did what they did as they tried to bridge FS1 and FS2.

ST:R didn't take Mobius's theory into consideration. Actually, it was released before the article was written.

What I meant by that is that the article is part of the history of theories on the subject that is related to story elements in ST:R and that it would be an interesting read at least.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
Fair enough. You can try requesting an admin to copy/paste its content and send it to you via PM.

Re: FSDoc Updates/Suggestions
I'd have no objection to retrieving the text and posting it somewhere on the forums, but I'm not inclined to revive the article itself. Remind me of it in a few days if I haven't gotten around to it by then.

[Edit] You can view it on my user page for the next little while. Won't keep it there for too long, so if you want to look at it later you should copy it to a text file or something.

That's not what the article was. The article was about how FS1 sucked and how we should all pretend that it doesn't exist.

Anyway, it's re-readable at Shade's profile here, though temporarily. Everyone can decide it for himself how he interprets it.

That sort of thing would be good to put on the ST:R Continuity page.  If someone posts a question or starts a section, or makes a suggestion, we'll be happy to fill it in.

Err...was FS Doc deleted or something?  :wtf:
With the rapid increase of FS fan-made campaigns, we're giving the GTVA a harder time with more violence and genocide.

It's up, unless he means the old Wiki, which used to be called FSDoc.
