Forums: Index > Wiki discussion > Animation errors on the main page for each episode

So I've been trying to list the animation errors for each episode. Do any of you think I should and if you don't, why?

Even though most animation errors are clearly errors, what about things like Spike's recollection in Secret of My Excess, Twilight mis-naming the book in Read It and Weep, the missing statues in The Return of Harmony Part 1, Diamond Mint's eyelids in The Best Night Ever? Why should we spend time sifting for what's "really" an animation error and what "only looks like" an animation error when they can all live happily in Forum:Speculation? –Throwawaytv 15:40, February 11, 2012 (UTC)
It's just that I really want to do the animation errors. And i don't want to discuss about it to others. I just think it would be a good part on the episode pages.

There are two major things going for keeping the animation errors in the speculation forum:
  • Allowing for speculation. Contributors who add an "error" don't have to demonstrate anything. It doesn't have to be verifiable or even correct. Anything they say can go there. They can say that Diamond Mint's eyelids are an animation error and they don't have to explain how or why it's an error and not a stylistic choice or a consistent element with the narrative or anything else.
  • Keeping it all together. It's very handy to have all of the series' animation errors in one page. When people look for one episode's animation errors, they probably look for all episodes' animation errors too. This works since the list is already disjointed, so it doesn't need to be ordered by anything other than episode order.
The first one is the really important one. There's no reason to bog down what amounts to trivia with the burden of verification when you can just use the speculation forum to your heart's content. –Throwawaytv 17:04, February 11, 2012 (UTC)
