I believe there should be a page for shipping on this, cause i totally ship Tigress and Po. I have all the information needed to make this page already. The shipping name for them is Tipo. (Like typo.) Anyways, if you are interested in doing this, you can email me at Yuuka777@yahoo.com
I think there's a ship page for The Last Airbender wikia. Not a bad idea.
You're talking about this page, right? There are actually quite a few things the Avatar Wiki has that we don't—like having a separate namespace for fanon, for example. I'm not sure what their reasoning is for allowing fanon on their wiki, but our reasons are probably different from theirs.
I also agree that a shipping page isn't that bad of an idea, but I think it's one that just isn't suited for this wiki. Why, you ask? Honestly, I just don't really see exactly what encyclopedic purpose it serves. This wiki is striving to be a reliable online encyclopedia to particular aspects of the KFP universe. This has so far been strictly based on the world itself (characters, locations, objects, etc.) and the franchise (movies, the TV show, books, etc.), but not the fandom that comes with it.
These are some of the reasons for excluding fandom on here:
No reliable sources to reference. Even though most fans of the franchise know about TiPo, that knowledge can't really be based off of anything other than individual inferences. Encyclopedias are typically based off of facts and research, which aren't usually present in shippings and other fandom.
Information on fandom isn't really that useful. I've noticed (just from lurking around social sites populated by KFP fans) that a lot of people search and use info on here for research purposes on being accurate with writing fan fiction, making fan art, and a lot of other cool stuff. But I've yet to see any need for fact-based research on shippings...
Fandom has no limits. There's only so much information the actual franchise and world can provide, but fandom has absolutely no stopping point. As an example for shippings, I could say I support the pairing of Po and that random sheep citizen from KFP2: There's nothing "wrong" with any of the pairings, but think of how numerous they are! How many characters has Po alone come into contact with since the first movie? Creating a page for shippings (which is only one small part of fandom) would suggest to everyone that it needs to be as long as possible with all of the possible pairings that can be conceived in one's mind. And again, all based on inferences and not research...
Now I'm in ranting mode, so I think I'll stop there and hope that all of that proved my point. I personally don't think we should have a page on here for shippings, but I'd like to hear what everyone else thinks about this, too...
A page about pairing? I don't think that's necessary. Anyway, I think The Last Airbender has a page for it because some pairing have acutally happened. I think we can have a shipping page when a shipping actually happens. But for now, go to the blog spots and use this wiki for KFP information.
