I think there might be two Deoxys threads because I just gave support to one I just saw and I remember giving support to the Deoxys thread awhile back. I think there's two of them. I'll try to investigate and find the other thread.

I couldn't find it. But I could have sworn I gave support to the Deoxys thread before.

It sounds to me like managing the newcomer directories is a chore. If you need help, I could assist in brooming up newcomers, though it would really only be meager aid since I am not so seasoned with navigation.
If you find threads, linking 'em is helpful. If anybody sees a duplicate, absolutely post it here and it'll be very easy to take care of.

I appreciate all the help.

It's not really so much of a chore as not a hard focus. I do a lot of things. But I took responsibility for this thread and decided to not relinquish it to another mod. Besides, the other mods do a lot of other stuff and it's not that hard of a thread. If anything, the hardest part would be fixing any kind of series designation. Like making sure Pokemon is spelled as Pokémon or changing Mario to Super Mario. For the most part, I keep it simple. Plus, one has to look at the full picture. For instance, look at the Pauline thread. Is the character being based upon the idea they're from Donkey Kong or Mario? And that's one of the few examples where it can be an issue. Shy Guy is another. Mario or Yoshi? It's important to understand where the thread owner is coming from. I can safely say that's the only thing I'd treat as a chore. :)

There was also two Marine Liteyears threads. I remember because I use to casually visit the first one and some dude created another. I don't know if the second one is lock yet, but I'll look into it right now.

Found them One-Winged Bagel One-Winged Bagel :

So is it simply a matter of running into newcomer support threads and comparing them with entries in the directory? And if I find a duplicate thread subject, should I let the owner know about its non-original status before linking it to a notification post?

I suggest posting all the links here and tagging each owner. First come first serve generally is the rule, but there's going to be cases where people relinquish the thread anyway.

And yeah. Best to do it that way, like you suggested. :)

slambros slambros and scarlet solsitce scarlet solsitce we got two Marina Liteyears threads here:



Which one of y'all wants it? The rules are the first one who claimed it calls dibs, but if the original thread owner wants to step down they can.

In that case, is it alright if I note the page location of this post to return to? If so, I shall add anything I see that is not in the directory under the heading New ; and duplicates, under Redundant...

New:
Illidan/Sarah Kerrigan (Warcraft/Starcraft) One-Winged Bagel One-Winged Bagel

Redundant:

Sorry for double posting, but I just made a support thread for Mumbo Jumbo:

I was considering making a villain general support thread since so many characters I want happen to be villains. I figured it made more sense to make one general thread than a separate one for each character that might not get enough support on their own. Either that or a Blizzard general support thread but I kind of doubt there would be enough interest in that one considering how my Ilidan and Kerrigan support threads went. Are these too broad of topics to make a support thread for?

These are fine, there's plenty in the main list.

I run 2 support threads and 1 general thread so you can do both. And no, those ain't too broad for general threads.

You going to have to talk to slambros slambros about if he wants to keep the original thread or not. If he gives it to you, you can only become the thread owner if you have a post older than the OP. It's weird, but it's how this site works.

Well, I went and made my first ever support thread! It's a general thread for the Disgaea series:
