I honestly don’t see the point of adding this rule, its just basically here just to controversially piss off the userbase. And more so, I don’t see anything wrong with overspecificness, its just a required tool to add some more quality as the individual needs, there’s nothing wrong with that. And yet, the Villains Wiki needs to have the same treatment in removing this rule. At worst, it’s not only painfully controversial, but its quite hypocritical to add such a rule, while other users are adding more and more franchise categories. Rather than being overly restrictive, it has to be realized that there has to be balance between chaos and order.
Too much order will result in no fun whatsoever, and too much chaos will result in needless mischief and rule breaking. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m not here to break rules, but whenever I see something wrong with them, the said problems have to be discussed. I’m basically very disappointed at this change, and I wish the rule is gone for good. I basically want this wiki fun but balanced, and not being overestrictive. This is just my advice to the entire administrator staff, in making this wiki a much more suitable environment. The side point is, on wikis, the articles have to be fully organized, without more categories, everybody will have trouble learning about something/someone and the overall basics of who they are or what they are.
Another point I have to make is that categories are very important to add, because they make finding something on the wiki far much easier, as opposed to disallowing more categories, which as a result, makes finding articles much more of a nightmare to do.
