I know I'll regret this, but I think that we should one page to catalog shippings. No, not to digress about them or plug new ships, but catalog the ones embraced by the fandom: SuperMartian, Spitfire, Traught, Angelfish and Neverland. This could be interesting from an educational point of view, where we can explain where those names come from. This page would need to comply with our citing policy of course, so as to avoid people dubbing their ships.
Define "embraced by the fandom". What is and isn't a valid citation in this case? There's probably a ship for every pair (and in some cases trio+) of characters on the show. And some with characters outside of the show. Many ships are carryovers from other DC media. Unless we can come up with a simple and objective way to say what does and doesn't count, we'd just be asking for trouble. I mean, I've seen Speedy's hat + the ground shipped before!
Valid citations: popular tumblrs and fan video reviews. In this one the reviewer defines "Neverland" and mentions "SuperMartian". I think we can go with a rule of frequency: if a ship is called so in, say, three thumblrs or video reviews, then it's a "thing".
Thailog, are you sure you're ready for this? i mean it's not very hard to find three places that mention a ship and you should probably say something like crack ships don't count and maybe specify about the ones that involve characters that never even met or one that's not in the show.
That one was because he made Jaime wait till he finished drinking before talking, kinda like Tim and paper happened because that moment was entertaining. Zegrinch, last time I checked Rob/Flash is known as Birdlash basically everywhere and I believe either Kal/Artemis or Kal/Roy was known as torpedo. there's also redcat for Cheshire/Red arrow and Meuseum heist is not synonimous to Traught but stricly refers to Dick, Wally and Artemis as a threesome. Zatanna/Artemis is snaisbel, Superboy/Dick has been known as Aster/Felling the aster and I believe Kal/Red arrow has been called aquawife and redfish. also, roy/artemis is longshot.
Neverland is a place where people never grow up. Conner can't age visibly and maybe he'll open up to Wendy and tell her about that and a few other things. Also, she has the same name as Wendy, whom Peter Pan brought to Neverland. Is that enough elaboration besides it's a clever ship name?
I say yes. Confine all the craziness in one article.
People use "it appeared on YJ wiki" for validity of Canon. Confining the crazy to one untouchable page will only give them more to pester about & won't even stamp out the crazy springing up elsewhere where we dont want it(how many blogs have we had to round up the ravel?).
I'm not sure what to call it but if there was a page I'd really like to see Dick/Babs included. I've heard the ship called Execute, Dibs, and BirdBat (or the other way around). Not entirely sure which it would be.
Speaking of which now Dick and Barbara are more or less cannon are you going to make a page for them like the other pairings on the show and comics? Just curious.
We don't make names of the ship, we make names for the. They haven't had a significant amount of interaction so the page wouldn't have much content (less then the Zatanna one I made easily). It'll come if someone makes it.

WallArt = Wally & Artemis Spitfire = Wally & Artemis Museum Heist = Wally, Artemis & Kid Flash. b/c someone robbed (robin) the WallArt Chalant = Robin & Zatanna (Robin told Z to be as (non)'Chalant' as he liked around her) Nighttanna = Nightwing & Zatanna Wingtanna = Nightwing & Zatanna Supermartian = Superboy & Miss M Neverland = Conner & Wendy (b/c Conner won't ever age ect.) Angelfish = M'gann & La'gaan Redcat = Red Arrow & Cheshier
Frost Bite= Artemis & Cameron SeaArrow = Artemis & Aqulad Traught = Artemis & Robin Snaibsel = Artemis & Zatanna (read it backwards) WonderBeeetle = Wondergirl & Jamie PowerHouse = Wondergirl & Superboy Aquawife = Roy & Kaldur (..IDK the story) Superbird = Superboy & Robin
Roy & Kaldur was probably because of that one scene in the last episode of the first season where Kaldur told Roy what had broke his heart and said that he was his best friend on land. I know i'm late, i just came across this page while looking for ships to add to my trivia game and had to say something.... there's also nightflash now that TimBart is also available as birdflash, Bluepulse, Longshot, and didn't zatanna tell robin to be as chalant as he liked? plus tim and connor seem to be pretty popular (i just almost never see richard and connor shipped together and when they do it's almost always a more specific name than superbird)
