Changing the profile quote (the colored box at the top of a large majority of articles) is something people can often debate about. For that reason, Avatar Wiki centralizes these changes on this page.

Procedures

  1. The proposer posts their suggestion(s) here. The proposer must support their suggestion(s) with a sensible reason for replacement ("it is an accurate representation of the character/his or her role in the series").
  2. An administrator will announce the proposal on the community corner (this can be found below Hot Spots on Special:WikiActivity) if it is believed a grounded reason to initiate the quote change process has been given in the original proposal.
  3. Discussion about the proposal can begin. If a discussion ensues and:
    1. no general consensus appears to develop between involved users, then a ballot will be placed forward;
    2. the people involved are all in agreement, and after three days no one else voices their objections, then the quote can be replaced without voting.
  4. If #3 does not apply and, after three days, no one replies, then the quote can be replaced without discussion or voting.

In order to speed up the process, it can be beneficial to withhold your comments when you agree with the majority. Adding your own comment will reset the "three days without comment" waiting period for consensus.

Same quote, but with the "Choose well" bit removed, which I found irrelevant to the subject. SorcererSupreme21 Sokka Sprite Season 1Zuko-flord-c1 (Contribs | Editcount) 09:45, December 4, 2016 (UTC)

Approved for discussion.
I agree, especially since Opal made note that Juicy chose her, not the other way around, so having that "choose well" note up there is outdated. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 11:21, December 4, 2016 (UTC)

Siege of Ba Sing Se

Current
"If the city is as magnificent as its wall, Ba Sing Se must be something to behold. I hope you all may see it someday, if we don't burn it to the ground first!"
Iroh in a letter to his family in the Fire Nation after breaching the Outer Wall of Ba Sing Se during the siege.[1]
Proposed replacement #1
"You once laid siege to it for 600 days, but it would not yield to you."
— The earthbender captain mentioning the siege to Iroh.[2]

I believe the proposed quote would be a better fit for the article, as it discusses specifically the essential aspects of the siege itself, while the current quote focuses more on the actual city of Ba Sing Se. Bolin spriteZiryerxPainted Lady (wallcontribsfanon) 01:07, November 6, 2016 (UTC)

Approved for discussion and I agree. Waterbending emblem Water Spout 04:28, November 6, 2016 (UTC)
I agree, it describes the battle better. --Dcasawang1wall 04:36, November 6, 2016 (UTC)
Definitely agreed. Tono555 Talk Asami-chao4 04:46, November 6, 2016 (UTC)
I honestly do not care much either way, but I would like to bring up that we could also adjust the proposed quote to read "You once laid siege to [Ba Sing Se] for 600 days, but it would not yield to you." as a means of providing more clarity. Just a thought. Bolin spriteZiryerxPainted Lady (wallcontribsfanon) 05:07, November 6, 2016 (UTC)
I do think that sounds better. I'm in favor of going with that. --Tono555 Talk Asami-chao4 05:45, November 6, 2016 (UTC)

After All These Years

Current
"Stop groveling as if this is the worst day of your life. This ... is a good day. I'm going to give you all the opportunity to rehabilitate yourselves, and become productive members of your nation. Right now, you're lost, but pledge your loyalty to me, and I'll give you a new purpose in your lives. Of course, if you don't want to join, you could always stay right here. Hopefully, someone saves you before the next train speeds through, but I wouldn't count on it."
Kuvira to some bandits.

As is obvious, it's the current again, only shorter. I think that the part I removed is not really necessary in relation to the episode, even if it does give some insight into Kuvira's character and her MO, but that's not what this episode it about. I think that the trimmed-down version I just proposed summarizes more what the episode is about and what happened between the fall of the Earth Queen and now, essentially. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 14:29, September 5, 2016 (UTC)

Approved for discussion.
I agree per the given reasons. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 14:44, September 5, 2016 (UTC)

Ursa's poison

Current
"I know how to make a poison that is colorless and odorless, completely untraceable. It causes a person to pass quietly, as if he'd simply fallen asleep. I'll give you a vial of it in exchange for Zuko's life. Once the poison is in your hands, you do whatever you wish."
— Ursa promising the poison to Ozai.

The proposed quote is just a shorter version of what we currently have. It omits the part about Zuko as that's irrelevant to the poison itself. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 15:38, August 2, 2016 (UTC)

Approved for discussion and I agree. Waterbending emblem Water Spout 06:54, August 3, 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree as well. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 12:52, August 3, 2016 (UTC)
Agreed. Completely irrelevant. --Tono555 Talk Asami-chao4 17:07, August 3, 2016 (UTC)

Battle of Wulong Forest

Current
"Please listen to me. We don't have to fight. You have the power to end it here and stop what you're doing."
Avatar Aang to Phoenix King Ozai.
Proposal #1
"It's time for this world to end in fire, and for a new world to be born from the ashes."
Phoenix King Ozai preparing his airship fleet for takeoff in Sozin's Comet, Part 2: The Old Masters
Proposal #2
"You're right. I do have the power. I have all the power in the WORLD!"
Phoenix King Ozai about to engage Avatar Aang in battle.

Proposal #3
"Come on out, Avatar! You can't hide in there forever!"
Phoenix King Ozai taunting Aang during battle.

I feel the new quote I feel would be good at the start of the Wulong Forest battle page should come from ex-Fire Lord now Phoenix King Ozai, as he was the one who caused the battle, and nearly scorched the hell out of Wulong Forest. --{{SUBST:User:Hiromichi/sig2}} (wallcontribs) 00:07, April 9, 2016 (UTC)

Approved for discussion.
I disagree. The current quote captures what the battle was about, as well as Aang's reluctance to even fight it. The proposed quote has in context nothing to do with the battle, as Ozai didn't plan for it to happen. His quote is referring to the Earth Kingdom and not to a showdown with the Avatar. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 14:08, April 10, 2016 (UTC)
Any quote from Ozai would be better for the Battle of Wulong Forest page, because Ozai was close to winning the war. --{{SUBST:User:Hiromichi/sig2}} (wallcontribs) 15:46, April 10, 2016 (UTC)
Disagree. The battle was between Aang and Ozai, so any quote that directly concerns the fight from either of them would be good, which all of them do. That being said, both the first and the second proposal better describe the coming of Sozin's Comet rather than the battle itself. And while you could say the Battle of Wu Long Forest was the main one, it still was a seperate battle, so I vote to keep the current. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 16:17, April 10, 2016 (UTC)

I don't necessary feel like the quote has to change, but since the topic was brought up, I added a third proposal. Ozai trying to coax Aang out could also be seen as a reflection of the battle: it's clear that Ozai wants to fight and Aang doesn't. Additionally, one could view the "Avatar, you can't hide forever"-note as a reference to Aang's Avatar State that was blocked up until that point. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 16:39, April 10, 2016 (UTC)

I still prefer the current, because it mentions both Aang's and Ozai's (albeit implicitly) attitudes towards the fight. Aang hid in the rock mostly because he was stuck for options: he couldn't end the fight without killing Ozai, something that he was unwilling to do, or without the Avatar State. Another thing against the third one, it feels like you need to be intimately familiar with the fight in order to understand the hows and whats, but that could just be me. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 20:39, April 10, 2016 (UTC)
No, you're right :-) I'm also still in favor of the current one, I was just throwing it out there, as that is one of the few quotes that was actually said during the fight. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 20:41, April 10, 2016 (UTC)

The Southern Raiders

Current
"You need to face this man. But when you do, please don't choose revenge. Let your anger out, and then let it go. Forgive him."
Aang advising Katara.
Proposed replacement #1
"Many of the warriors had seen the black snow before and they knew what it meant: a Fire Nation raid. We were badly outnumbered, but somehow, we managed to drive them off. As quickly as they came, they just left. I was so relieved when it was over, but that's because I didn't know yet what had happened. I didn't know we had lost our mother."
Sokka describing the Souther Raiders to Zuko and the death of his and Katara's mother.

I feel this quote would be better, because need a description on the Southern Raiders, man they were damn well devastating. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hiromichi (wallcontribs) 15:53, February 8, 2016‎ (UTC)

Approved for discussion.
I disagree. The episode centers around Katara facing the her own anger about what happened to her mother, not about the Southern Raiders' invasion of the south, and the current quote does a good job highlighting the main plot of the episode. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 22:24, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
While I understand LL's reasoning, yes, it was mostly about Katara facing the man who killed her mother, it is titled "The Southern Raiders", and Sokka's description of that single raid that led Kya's death is good enough to be the main quote. I see the logic in both, and I am fine with either quote, but you can list me as "approve". SorcererSupreme21 (wallcontribs) 23:57, February 8, 2016 (UTC)
I actually agree with Lady Lostris for once. The profile quote should best depict the central plot in the episode, which the current does. That being said, I do think the proposal, once trimmed down a little, would make an excellent quote above the page of the Raiders itself, which doesn't have one at the moment. Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 06:56, February 9, 2016 (UTC)
Agreed^ SorcererSupreme21 (wallcontribs) 07:43, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

Zaheer

Current
"It's the dawning of a new age, the end of the White Lotus, and soon, the end of the Avatar."
— Zaheer to his jailers.
Proposed replacement #1
"Maybe I forgot to mention something to you. I don't believe in queens."
— Zaheer to Hou-Ting.
Proposed replacement #2
"The idea of having nations and governments is as foolish as keeping the human and spirit realms separate. You've had to deal with a moronic president and a tyrannical queen. Don't you think the world would be better off if leaders like them were eliminated?"
— Zaheer to Korra.

Proposed replacement #3
"When you base your expectations only on what you see, you blind yourself to the possibilities of a new reality"
— Zaheer to his White Lotus guards upon escaping.

Zaheer isn't a typical villain, he has his oun philosophy and he really wants good for people, but the surrent quote shows him as a second Ozai. Лев - черепаха (wallcontribs) 14:41, January 16, 2016 (UTC)

Approved for discussion.
I agree with #2, as #1 is too black and white. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 21:50, January 16, 2016 (UTC)

I am more partial to keeping the current, because I think that one describes his ultimate goal the best. I think that both proposals are very specific to the context in which they were said, and less so about his character as a whole. If it's going to be changed, my vote does go out to the second proposal, because that has the problem I mentioned less, but my primary choice would be to keep the current.Aang Cosmic AvatarAang7 (My wall - My fanon) 22:38, January 16, 2016 (UTC)

Out of the ones proposed so far, I go with #2 as well. It's lengthier, more well-explained version of the current. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 23:17, January 16, 2016 (UTC)

Of the three, I'd go with that last proposal. But if there were going to be a quote change, I'd like it would be something in Book Four, signifying Zaheer's change. I'll add in my own proposal: If that is how one adds in a new quote proposal. SorcererSupreme21 (wallcontribs) 07:03, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

I formatted it correct for you, as all proposals need to be at the top and later additions need to be separated from the first with a line, signifying that the previous discussion did not include the later addition.
That said, I still stick with my support for #2, as the new suggestion is merely a vague, philosophical statement. It could have very well been one of Iroh's wisdoms if one would not know it came from Zaheer. Lady Lostris vstf (talkHotN) 07:45, January 20, 2016 (UTC)
I support #2 as well. DyingFlameTsui (wallcontribs) 09:35, January 20, 2016 (UTC)
So, changing? --Лев - черепаха (wallcontribs) 08:21, January 27, 2016 (UTC)
