Designer Villains Collection Ruling  

With the Designer Villains Collection being the shiny, new, exciting thing to come out of the Disney Store - as a mod, I find myself in a quandry. d_princesses is a Disney Princess/heroine specific community, and as we have a sister community dedicated to villains, it doesn't seem appropriate to have posts about the new collection here.

A post announcing the collection, sure - four of the six villainesses are from Princess films. And posts about the Designer Princesses with Designer Villains - completely appropriate.

So if the Designer Villains don't fit in within the theme of the community, and there are well-run blogs already dedicated to the concept, I don't see a compelling reason accept posts about it on d_princesses. I'd recommend following and submitting posts to d_villains, where I've been posting updates as I find them.

If there's something I haven't considered or am missing the bigger picture, please comment and let me know what you think.

What about posting of the buy links? That said, I had no idea there was a villan community anyway?

This is the first time I've ever even seen the villains comm mentioned, I think, so you're not alone lol I'd even done an interest search a few months ago for such a thing and nothing came up.

Interest search on LJ SUCKS for keywords.

If the comm is very active, it's the easiest way to find it. From what I can tell, the villains comm has sporadic posting, sometimes a few times a day, sometimes a week or more in between posts. I probably searched during a time when they hadn't posted in awhile.

I know! I tried searching for a proper DP community and nothing proper came up and I thought this place didn't exist. Google brought me here.

IAWTC. Seriously. I'm already apart of too many communities. I think these villain dolls are related enough to stay here.

I agree with you. I'm in this comm because i love disney princess dolls. And in some ways, the villain ARE A TRUE PART OF DISNEY PRINCESS. So, why make another community?!It's just the dark side of the same coin.

Honestly, I would really be happy to see it stay in this community. It's active so I can always be informed. I would rather not join the villain community because I am not a villains fan but I like this collection.

Also, we talk ALL the time about Brave. Merida isn't even a true Disney princess and we still talk about her. Since four of the collection are from princess movies, I think it would be ok to talk about that here.

This is also true. We talk about non-(official) princesses all the time!

I hear rumor she is going to join the official princess line up. What do you think?
genforever246genforever246 on June 29th, 2012 12:21 am (UTC)
I hope so. I have heard rumors to. It depends though on how much people like her.
Jeannettefallingcinders on June 30th, 2012 07:55 am (UTC)
I love her. I demand more Merida here, there, everywhere.

Unrelated to if we should allow them here or not, that picture of the 4 that are from Princess movies got me thinking it would be neat if the villains swapped outfits with the Princesses kinda like in that picture I remember seeing.

If we can vote, I vote to keep posts on the villains. They ARE related to the Disney princesses.

I'd also love if we could keep posts about doll releases even if they are not a princess. I think the major factor would be that they should be a Disney leading lady.

As per our community page:

A community for fans of the Disney Princesses - their films, art, news, and merchandise.

This means we can include anything regarding the movies including villains.

We also can include non-official leading ladies and their movies as long as it has a Disney heroine:

d_princesses is for fans of the Princesses in all of Disney's movies. The official ten are Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana and Rapunzel. But other Disney heroines such as Megara, Tinkerbell, Alice, Esmeralda, Jane and more can also be considered Princesses!

I'd also rather it be in this community. I'm not going to join another community that I never would have joined in the first place for the doll updates.

Just my own input of course, but I do think they're related enough. *shrug*

I think they're related enough to be included here.

Sweet, I didn't know that community existed.
Andrea Pendragonlightmoonstone on June 29th, 2012 10:08 pm (UTC)
same. I'd rather refer to this community for updates on the doll
Jeannettefallingcinders on June 30th, 2012 07:57 am (UTC)
I'm gonna chime in and say that I also think the villain doll news should be allowed in this comm. They're related to the princesses IMO and I really don't think the villain comm would see nearly as much traffic as this comm.
