I am proposing a minor change to the content policy:
C. Crossover content
1. SpongeBob SquarePants often crossovers with other entities, especially other Nicktoons shows. For this, it is necessary to include policies to the regard.
2. All crossover characters, locations, and objects that are not native to the SpongeBob SquarePants universe do not merit their own articles. Instead, they belong on a list.
This concerns stage will end on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at 9:37 p.m., eastern time. Nicko756(M•C•E)Sign! 01:37, March 15, 2017 (UTC)
The current policy does and this policy would increase the limitiation of what is allowed on this wiki. As it stands, there are numerous characters, locations, and objects, some of which only appear in video games or shorts. By having this policy change, you are saying, "If it exists outside of the SpongeBob Universe, then it cannot be on this wiki," which then brings into question the crossovers themselves. Do you no longer want them since they mostly take place outside of the SpongeBob universe? The biggest offender of this ideology is the Nickmas Shorts, which don't feature the SpongeBob Universe at all. If the answer to the question I posed is "No, they're fine because they feature the SpongeBob Universe and/or characters from it," then the question is: What stops characters like Jimmy, Timmy, Cosmo, Wanda, Danny, Beautiful Gorgeous, Tralock, and all the misplaced characters in Freeze Frame Frenzy from being featured here? They have all appeared in the SpongeBob Universe, so why should they not be allowed if the crossover games are allowed. If they should be allowed, what stops the other crossover characters from being allowed. It seems you did not think about this at all and you just really dislike these characters, locations, and objects for some reason.
I think the much more important question, which you clearly did not consider, is: What if my proposal passes? I could add, "before this does" at the end, but if it does pass, it will be before this one, so that would be redundant. If it does pass, will you give up and close this? Will you rewrite the proposal? This is why it is not a good idea to have two revisions that are revising the same section going at the same time. Before you go and say something like, "Oh, I agree. Let's close yours," it really should be the newer one that should be closed. 120dTalkContribs 15:09, March 15, 2017 (UTC)
To answer your second question, I would withdraw my proposal if yours passes. Nicko756(M•C•E)Sign! 04:58, March 18, 2017 (UTC)
