Greetings, and thanks for taking interest! I am a former editor and administrator of this wiki who is no longer present.
I became interested in "PAW Patrol" in the same way I get interested in any similar series; it featured adorable yet respectable characters and had reasonable plot sequences. In addition to the show not treating the audience as if it was dumb, I loved the interplay between the pups during both missions and free time, the positive atmosphere encompassing the series, and the feeling of capability, confidence and teamwork exuded by the protagonists. My interest waned with the increasing use of common tropes and unrealistic scenarios indicating a rapid loss of creativity, not to mention the negative evolution of some of the characters I used to love. I did not appreciate having a strong foundation of characters and charm to subsequently watch it disintegrate into a lesser program.
I left the wiki due to differing definitions of key values (i.e. respect) from my peers, and the lack of appreciation felt for my extensive efforts (listed in the right-most tab). I had desired to be part of a cohesive community of users who were here to make the wiki a better place and who had the reasoning ability to discuss matters and come to agreeing (or at least mutually respectable), conclusions. I personally did not find that experience, but I hope whoever is reading this does get the experience they are looking for.
If you would like to contact me, please feel free to leave something on my message wall. Please keep in mind that I will likely not respond (given my circumstances), but I will definitely read it. For users who would actually like to converse with me (even though I understand I have not said much about myself for people who did not know me while I was active), I unfortunately have not set up a messaging area elsewhere.
Closing Message to You
I really hope you have a great time here, even though it did not work out for me. I wish all the best to everyone, including both veteran users and new ones who may have stumbled across this profile.
Have a good day.
Chase: Really liked him in Season 1. I appreciate that he is extremely mature on missions and just as playful when in other circumstances: similar to myself. He lost some respect in Season 2 with his more negative energy and obligatory skepticism. At least as of 2016, he seems to be equalizing in Season 3. I currently find him respectable, but not overtly special.
Marshall: Loved him in Season 1 because he was the character set up for people to love. I likewise fell into his charm: the positive, happy and outgoing "I can do anything" attitude despite his constant mishaps. The problem in Season 2 was that he had too much focus on him; showcasing insecurities where previously I would have imagined him capable and confident. That, in combination with more frequent and ridiculous wipeouts, made me get tired of him. Unfortunately, this feeling still persists through Season 3 as the same issues are still present (though toned down).
Skye: Like the ever-happy and peppy attitude in general. She has made some good comments and has had some adorable moments. She does not seem to stand out as much as the others, though.
Rocky: Love the general temperament and smart/witty dialogue. Earned my respect as the handyman/inventor of the group and in not letting the aversion to water affect him when he's really needed. Given that I laughed hysterically at the pup who got a recycling truck amidst all the other cool vehicles (when looking through character summaries before I really knew the show), I'm glad he proved me wrong when I figured he was not called on often or got ridiculously boring jobs specifically set up for him (yay, recycling!). Season 2 overdid the "get Rocky wet" gag just in how unreasonably it was used: whenever there was any opportunity. Somewhat lost interest when he became less well-written and more blank of a personality.
Rubble: Never liked him. He's had his rare positive moments, but it cannot overcome my distaste for his naïvety and overconfidence. I do not appreciate his numerous comments that seem to me like unnecessary dialogue.
Zuma: He has pretty cute tendencies altogether. His subtle level of involvement initially led me to disregard him, but as other characters were exhaustively showcased, that quality became increasingly valued. Like the fun and unstressed (but not uncaring), nature he presents.
Everest: I like the energy and enthusiasm she brings. She has not, however, made enough of a presence to feel a great connection to her. I do think having her make merely occasional appearances was a smart move though, because I would rather have her underplayed than overplayed.
Tracker: I was not present long enough for him to be introduced, therefore any opinion I might have of him would be void regardless.
