Should Speculah:Let's Predict the Ending be converted into a format similar to Wish theories? Prima 08:06, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps we can change the Template:Wish inline to be more general purpose? But I'm not sure about that, since in the end only one ending is going to be correct, putting a message saying something among the line of "For accurate ending, see also Episode 12" or something should also works. --0x99 08:36, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Why is the 'Kyubey is Evil' theory marked as proven right? Right now we know Kyubey is trying to save the universe. This isn't evil. His methods are immoral, but they are not evil. Evil would be if he suddenly turns out to be trying to destroy the universe instead, or if he's just doing it for the lulz. Saving the universe? It's the opposite of evil.

The name might be off, but the right/wrong status is given according to the content of the theory. In this case, the theory states that Kyubey is the one who harvests Magical Girls and Witches in order to obtain "something" (the initial theory didn't say what; the anime proved it was "energy"). That is pretty much what has been explained in the anime, hence the "right" tag. I admit that the name is pretty treacherous though. --Homerun-chan 10:10, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
-How do we define evil? From a human perspective, Kyuubey is using highly immoral tactics that cause fatal harm to many innocent people. If he's using evil methods for the sake of a good purpose, it can still be argued that he's evil. From the definition, "morally wrong or bad; immoral; wicked" or "harmful; injurious" are sufficient regardless of motive.
Perhaps we should rename the speculah to remove any misinterpretation? Something like: Speculah:Kyuubey has ulterior motive? Prima 21:20, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
Actually, I find the disclaimer clear enough, but if more people think we should rename it they why not. (as a reminder, by "disclaimer" I mean this: "Regarding the confirmed theories, please bear in mind that the version posted on these pages is the one that was popular before being confirmed. This means that some of these theories might look inacurrate with regard to the actual story.") --Homerun-chan 21:27, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Now that the series is ended, should we mark all the confirmed theories as such, and the unconfirmed theories as proven wrong? 05:41, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

I haven't skimmed through them yet, but if there still are any unconfirmed theories, they should stay as such (as usual, "unconfirmed" = "no element in canon is explicitly confirming it, or going against it). I agree that the others should be tagged properly though. Gonna make an inline tag for pages holding more than one theory. --Homerun-chan 07:45, 22 April 2011 (UTC)
