I suggest changing the headings on these wikis from "Why It Sucks/Rocks" to "Why People Think It Sucks/Rocks" (except maybe not on the Fresh and Rotten Websites wikis).

Why? Consider this: It's not actually a fact that a show, movie, game, etc is good or bad, no matter how many people like or hate it. Even if everyone in the universe hates it, that still doesn't make it a fact. They're just popular opinions.

I got this idea from the ScumBob Wiki (instead of blatantly saying "Why It's ScumBob," they say "Why People Call It ScumBob."

Do you agree with me?

Probably not. Not all people like/hate something, and it is specifically these wiki's community deciding whether or not the piece of media is good or bad.

AlimuDX (talkcontribs)

I thought these wikis were about why they're considered good or bad

Uhh... no.

Eh, I prefer the headers were used to. Considering that custom headers are allowed now, will think about using the headers.

SuperStreetKombat (talkcontribs)

Nope.

Marxo Grouch (talkcontribs)

Nah…

LifeWasGoodOnHotdogStand (talkcontribs)

no

Yes I agree. Saying why it sucks Or something like that or why it rocks just sounds biased and makes it the article look like it is forcing you to hate a certain thing. Everyone has their own different tastes on things and no media is perfect. I think what you suggested should be done because the why it sucks stuff or any custom headers by similar to it sounds quite harsh.

BaldiBasicsFan (talkcontribs)

I actually think that using the "Why It Sucks" would just be unfair for some shows to be fair. Barney seasons 9-14 is an example of this.

AlimuDX (talkcontribs)

Glad you see what I mean

The Why it rocks/sucks term is getting repetitive nowadays. I'd rather use such terms that depend on the main theme of something instead. Why would you think that Why it rocks/sucks is the main heading?

6 people disagree, but i should agree with this post. actually, i think maybe i’d let it change to something more professional...ish.

how about “problems” for the negative reception wikis to sorta fit the consistency with the “redeeming qualities” header title, or “problems according to reception”. dunno what to choose for the positive reception wikis tho.
