I think this page would be better off as a user subpage. Also, its lead image is not standard size. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:06, 8 August 2007 (EDT)

  • I agree. I think we did the same thing with Peter's "emo hair" as well. (Admin 23:49, 8 August 2007 (EDT))
    • We should avoid single fan's creation and use the fan's creation category only for creation that are referenced by many fans in many sites. This page and the emo's one are cool but doesn't belong the main content. Imho. :) -- Frenchflo.gif (talk) 08:32, 9 August 2007 (EDT)
    • Believe me, Sybrows is a very popular phenomenon. But I agree there needs to be a subpage for this. Also I made a standard image, I'm sorry about that --Starrynight (talk) 14:49, 9 August 2007 (EDT)
      • That's fine--I'm impressed you were able to get a standard sized image of such a close up. Since you're the main contributor to this page, I'll move it to your subpage. You'll find it at User:Starrynight/Sybrows. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:59, 9 August 2007 (EDT)
      • Sybrows is now linked to my username. Now it looks like I invented it though I don't want to take any credit for this. It even doesn't show up using the search function. Isn't there another way, like creating a subcategory 'terms' or something similar to 'relations'. Just a suggestion. And yes I have my photoshop skills ;-) --Starrynight (talk) 19:08, 9 August 2007 (EDT)
        • Well, there are some things that despite being popular might not really be suited for their own articles. Take Peter's hair for example. People have talked about it ever since the start of the series, but we don't have a dedicated article just for its hair despite all the talk and popularity. There's not a whole lot that can be said about "Sybrows" aside from pointing out that some people call it that (though I have to say through all the posts I've ever read on all the boards I've never personally come across that term). I'm personally not even sure that groups that originate on specific forums (such as Sarmy and The Marked) should even have their own articles since it leaves the door open for any arbitrarily created group to create an article about it... not to mention what were to happen if two separate groups on two separate forums emerged with the same name at some point. I'd say if you're really interested in "Sybrows" continue to improve the article in your user space and at some point it may evolve into a main fan creation article. (Admin 13:33, 9 August 2007 (EDT))
          • Just a few things I wanted to add:
            1. A user subpage is a page that is an extension of a user page. For instance, "Sybrows" is located at User:Starrynight, with a backslash to denote that it's a subpage. A subcategory is a category in and of itself which belongs in another category. For instance, because there were so many relationship fan creations, we created Category:Relationships, which belongs in Category:Fan Creations. We do not need a subcategory just for Sybrows.
            2. Just because the page is linked to your username does not mean that you invented or created the term, just the page. In fact, it even says in the lead description on the page that it is a fan term. If you'd like to make it clearer, you can.
            3. I don't want you to think that we're picking on you or any of your additions to Heroes Wiki. No matter what your motive is for creating a page, we look at it objectively. Sybrows is simply not an established fan creation in my view or in any of the Heroes-related sites I frequent (and I know I'm not alone in that opinion). Even if it were, it's just a term, and probably does not need an entire page dedicated to it. But like Admin said, flesh it out and see where it goes. But know that we're not targeting you or your contributions. The issue I have with Sarmy is not about the Sarmy itself, but about a bigger issue of putting credit on fan creations or not. That's why the discussion was moved to the community portal even though some might think these are "stupid messages". -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 14:23, 9 August 2007 (EDT)
