We've talked this subject to death, so I'll be brief: Figverse Wiki needs a mission statement, a short sentence that summarizes our overarching goals. This will appear on our main page, and (as the name suggests) should be the basis for every edit we make moving forward. Every article, category, template, and policy should be based on this one sentence. Here's my proposal:
Figverse Wiki aims to be the definitive reference for all of Pseudolonewolf's fictional universes, including games and other works set there.
Reading that sentence, I'd expect the fictional universes link to send me to a list of said universes.
What other works has he done that we reference here?
Sorry for the delay.

None at the moment, but removing that last bit would deemphasize the fictional universes. The point is that Figverse Wiki is about the Figverse, and everything else comes second.
If the point is to be about the fictional universes, not the games, simply truncate the sentence after those words.
"Figverse Wiki aims to be the definitive reference for all of Pseudolonewolf's fictional universes"
I think we should explicitly include games in our mission statement, because we talk about stuff that's only relevant from a gameplay perspective, like Wait (MARDEK). We need to say that our primary focus is the Figverse, but we also need to say that we have a secondary focus: games and whatever else might come in the future.
I've given my feedback; you've shot down every point of it. What kind of a response do you want, then?

I wasn't trying to "shoot down" your feedback, and I'm sorry I came across that way. I'm fine with any mission statement as long as it meets these two goals:
I'd like to formalize this before we write a new "Content/Canon Polity". With that in mind, here's my new proposal:
I was a bit hesitant to use the word "work" there at first, but after doing some research, I think the meaning is clear enough. Here's the fruit of my labor:
A literary or musical composition or other piece of fine artOxford Dictionaries (US English), definition 4.2
A literary or musical composition or other piece of artOxford Dictionaries (British & World English), definition 3.1
something created as a result of effort, especially a painting, book, or piece of musicCambridge Dictionaries Online (British English)
an object produced as a result of effort, esp. something intended to be artCambridge Dictionaries Online (American English)
An artistic creation, such as a painting, sculpture, or literary or musical composition, or a creative result of other human activityTheFreeDictionary.com, definition 4.a.
something produced by the exercise of creative talent or expenditure of creative effort : artistic productionMerriam-Webster, definition 7b
A literary, artistic, or intellectual production.Wiktionary, definition 4.3
This particular definition seems to be more common in British English than American English—which is pretty convenient, since Figverse Wiki uses British English.
Bright Christmas tree, dude, I'm literally floating here thinking about my life and wondering what the hell do you want from me. I like Wiktionary, hell, I LOVE Wiktionary, I spend most of my free time there (not even joking), so I'm all for the definition that's from it. Or whatever you want me to agree on. I know equations are better than defining constants and I believe this whole mission statement thing or whatever is based, just make it the way that if Pseudo said that Rohoph was going to explode, he did, even though what he said can't be classified as 'intellectual production'. Huh, or it actually can. So yeah, everything's fine, I love Fig Hunter Wiki, you have my full support.
Don't worry, it's just that Deekay hasn't slept for 19 hours.
What do you think?
