Hi! I don’t know if you’ve seen it yet but the season 8 project has recently added a new rule, no more than 12 main cast members, and since your seasons are currently the only ones that go above it I felt like I should inform you.
Now I don’t want you to think that this is meant to hurt anyone’s creativity, the goal of it is to help people who like you (or me) tend to have their main casts grow to hard to manage proportions, and because of this I’m not trying to give you a warning, just informing you of it.
Also, if you can’t figure out how to keep either of your seasons to 12 main cast members you can ask me and I’ll gladly try to figure out a way to help you keep your main casts down.
The rule is to help you out, as someone whose later seasons would be approaching 20 main cast members I can say that having a main cast member limit can help me control the season and keep it from overflowing with plots, and that’s the point of it.
Um, I don’t understand what you are trying to say? Your thread hasn’t been updated recently, neither have your season pages, if you don’t know how to make your cast smaller I would gladly help you out, either here or in chat, and I’m sure the other Fanon Managers would help you too.
Oh, I’m sorry for misunderstanding you, but I have, which is why I send the message to you.
Oh and one quick (or as I’m rereading this, long) suggestion, when choosing the cast, think about what your main plot is, and when picking your cast choose the most important people who will be appearing the most in it and makes sure you prioritize them before any other character you’re interested in (for example my season’s main plot is the threat of a bunch of villains manipulated by Wilhelm through Rumpelstiltskin to Regina’s leadership, so the first people who I would need to choose are Regina, who is leading everything, Rumpel, who is the one actually moving around the plot for Wilhelm, and Moana, the core villain overwhelming Regina, the other 9 cast members come from the stories stemming from that conflict), also since you’ve said you don’t know why Sidney is a main character, don’t make him one, that’s just one less person you have to deal with and give a major arc too.
Sidney is a crucial character in this season, he's met Cthulhu before and has seen what he's done, Sidney is an important character in this season so I'll probably just take like someone else out, Sidney is a very important character in this season, okay.
I’m sorry, you had previously said you didn’t actually know why you made him a regular so I figured he’d be a safe bet, I didn’t realize that since then you’d given him an important role (btw I’m in the chat if you need help).
I suppose I could take out Gideon or Jefferson since in this season, they're just members of the team or I can take out Captain Nemo but this will be exploring more of his backstory including his friendship with new character Sinbad but Gideon's role will take relevance in the next season and so will Lily's and I think Jefferson's will as well.
Okay, so I loooked at your casts, and I think that having a cast of Henry, Hook, Regina, Emma, Nemo, Sidney, Sinbad and Cthulu would work, based solely on what little you have revealed about your season. I’m sure that some of your other 9 characters have big roles I don’t know about, but you still have 4 slots left to put them in.
Since you have refused to come on we’ll just tell you what we wanted to say there.
We don’t feel like you have been respecting the rules of this project, you have ignored our cast member limit and when we try to tell you to change your season to reflect this you avoid limiting it and instead waffle about it, while continuing to add more characters your season 9 and announcing cast members for a S10. Your extra seasons are also a problem, despite your eighth season being incomplete you started a page for the ninth season and before anything besides cast members were revealed for that you announced more for your tenth season. When we tried to call you to discuss this you refused, and have continued to refuse, to join the chat, because of this we are telling you that if you don’t quickly start to follow the rules we will close your thread for a period of time.
woah, woah, I never said I was refusing and ignoring the limit, the characters I've announced, I haven't decided if they're guest stars or regulars but Ursula, Tom Lask and Magnus are the spies for the team in this season so I want them to be regulars but on the other hand given this new limit, that means I either have to move Monsieur D'Arque (Who is the climactic villain of this season) and Spring-heeled Jack (Who's death is the inciting incident leading to S9) to guest stars or take them out of the season which I am not doing because they are important to the plot, okay and don't assume that I'm ignoring the limit again just because I've announced new characters.
