-Can someone fix this page? -User:Alexa9966

It's only been 6 episodes and Dent and Iris have only been together in two of them so far so there's nothing to fix Ataro 02:44, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
Fix what, exactly? --ケンジガール 07:19, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
Prehaps the name? The user is who made the page is in the name. Shouldnt that be fixed?-User:Alexa9966
You mean the Userspace? I created on my page because there's just not enough evidence or content to warrant its own page yet. Wait a little longer. It will be moved to the Shipping space eventually. ArcToraphim only put the tags and categories so it could be easier to find. --ケンジガール 02:34, 30 October 2010 (UTC)


They were revealed at the same time since they'd both be new travelers with Ash, not for shipping reasons. Besides, that sounds more like Trivia than similarities, also I don't think that information should be put on the shipping page anyway. It's made up by the English fans and as such is only an unofficial date. Also, if we put the date for Wishful here then there should be dates for the other ships as well, since Wishful isn't the only one with a day. Gohan5 16:37, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

While I think it would be relevant to 'shippers as a whole (eh, they need their "special days"), I'm working on something off-site for dates like this. I'll probably remove it from here, on grounds that while it might be "a big deal", that doesn't mean all Wishfulshipping factions agree. It's a bit too fandom-close for my tastes, akin to adopting Smogon's tier list. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 17:14, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
I really disagree with the removing it under the basis of it "not being official". Nothing in shipping is official I feel. The ship is just as fictional as the date people celebrate it on. Shipping is mostly based on the fandom anyway. --ケンジガール 22:33, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
But not every 'ship can agree on "one day", given that not everyone is all in the same communities. BMGf users might decide April 1st is Pokeshipping day, SPPf users might decide November 14th is Pokeshipping day, DevArt people might decide August 5th is Pokeshipping day, and that's just the English fandom. You see what I mean? Just because one day is the "loudest" and "most popular choice" does not mean that everyone is going to feel the same, especially if something suddenly happens in the anime that's ten times more important that their official reveal. Are we going to have to list every date that the fandom feels important to a couple, which is what would happen? That's far too subjective. That's like saying, "This fictional website I'm pointing out outside the 'external links' section is the best for all Wishfulshipping information because a bunch of Wishfulshippers think so, and very verbosely." Shipping might be fandom-driven 9 times out of 10, but this only opens doors to slowly slipping messes. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 23:41, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
