Jojen Paste

Is there a specific reason for why there's no "Jojen Paste" theory section (or article), or is it simply that no one's gotten around to it (yet)? -- La Víbora Roja 19:50, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

There is no section because articles should remain as neutral as is possible, not favoring any theories. We do have theory-articles on the wiki, but usually those are used when most of the fandom agrees on a theory. You could make a Jojen-paste theory (which, I assume, will then become the page Jojen Reed/Theories, with a subtitle on the page called Jojen-paste) --Rhaenys_Targaryen 08:20, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
There are a number of theories the Wiki doesn't have simply because no one has gotten to doing it yet. Another good one is the theory Petyr Baelish is a Reyne. --Lord Thornhart 00:42, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
OK, so it's not that it's an invalid theory, but that it just hasn't been done yet? I may try my hand at doing a few of these then. Is there a certain "standard" required for a particular theory to be included on a theories page, or are "tin foil" theories allowed as well? Thanks. -- La Víbora Roja 17:47, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
I don't know what "tin foil" theories are..? But in any case, a wiki is for factual information, so if a theory is presented on the wiki, be certain the specify that it is a theory. Mostly, I think (though if I'm wrong, please correct me), there aren't many theories presented on the wiki because most theories meet with a lot of protest on the forums. Only theories that are rather widely accepted, seem to be on the forum, like R+L=J (supported by the majority of at least the forum-community) and the discussion about whether or not Aegon is really Rhaegar's son Aegon. The others seem to be Loras Tyrell, and that something seems wrong with his Dragonstone story (though the theory page doesn't specify what exactly), and the Coldhands issue, which is just a page listing the possibilities.--Rhaenys_Targaryen 11:57, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Tin foil, as in wearing a tin foil hat to prevent the government from broadcasting their mind control signals into your brain crazy, lol. Not sure how to determine what theory has wide acceptance and what does not? -- La Víbora Roja 18:30, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Ah, ok. Well, perhaps it helps to post the Theory Policy of the wiki here? (on the left in the box) --Rhaenys_Targaryen 15:00, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
 Theories may be removed if ... 
  1. Stated as questions or possibilities.
  2. More appropriate for another article.
  3. Illogical or previously disproven.
  4. Proven by canon source, and moved to main page.
  5. Speculative and lacking any evidence to support arguments.
  6. Responding to another theory (use discussion page instead).
  • This does not include responses that are also standalone theories.
  • Usage of an indented bullet does not imply the statement is a response.
