Given the numerous amounts of questions that are being duplicated on the platform, I have compiled below an FAQ comprising of the multiple-frequently asked questions; please check this FAQ before posting to ensure that your question if not a duplicate. In circumstances where discussions exist about the topic, I have linked them in the question. This will be updated regularly when new things arise, so keep checking back!
What is the timeline for Legacies? — The timeline for Legacies is currently 2029 due to multiple continuity errors in the first season. More can be found in the discussion above and/or the timeline article which also highlight the inconsistencies with Hope, Lizzie and Josie's ages.
Would an Original die if it was beheaded/heart extraction? — Quite simply, no. The only way to kill an Original vampire is with the white oak stake or Marcel's venom. Duplicated posts will be deleted.
Who is the strongest witch/villain? — An extensive discussion centered around the most powerful/strongest villain in the series. Comparative (or versus) of Dahlia, Esther, Freya, Bonnie, others etc; please do not repeat them. There are additional comments on their respective article comment sections as well. Duplicated posts will be deleted.
Which species would you be? / is more powerful? (11.5.19) Best/Worst Species (9.16.20) — These polls are duplicated in some fashion every so often. Please use the tags to find the most recent one since polls don't normally spur a discussion.
Klaus' Wolf Form (11.15.19) — Several posts are linked within that are generally about Klaus' never seen werewolf form and reasons why.
Relationships (11.15.19) Polls in general (i.e. Best, Favorite, etc., Character, siblings, etc.,) (6.18.20) Favorite Siphoner/(Hybrid) Heretic Member (7.10.20); Parker/Saltzman ; Best or Favorite/Worst Villain (9.16.20)— Several broad posts and polls in regards to mostly the main characters across the three shows and their significant other(s), family members, one's own favorite characters, etc. Users should check the desired relationship or individual article tags for a poll or discussion topic prior to posting a new thread - chances are, it has been posted before with variable choices. Polls, generally, do not spur discussions and are considered low effort and similar polls in some context can usually be found in the article tags. Also, please note that creating numerous polls about individual characters or relationships may seem like spam and can be removed. Duplication or polls with highly similar answer choices to one another will be deleted. Continuing to duplicate such polls may result in an account block. Some of the many examples can be found here: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, and thirteen.
Which Show? (11.20.19) Best/Worst Season? (5.5.20)— Several poll posts already exist about which show is "the best", etc. Please don't recreate these polls as they usually don't offer a discussion. These polls can be found either through the series categories or wiki article tag. For the respective best/worst seasons (two examples linked), please see their corresponding article tags for other polls. Duplicated posts will be deleted.
Hope's Transformation (11.24.19) and Magic (4.24.20) — It is not known what kind of vampire (non/original) she will become if/when she transitions. It has also not been confirmed whether she will keep or lose her magic upon transitioning into a vampire. Considering vampires are aberrations of Nature and witches loses their magic upon transition, it is speculated that despite being a hybrid, she could lose her magic. Users discuss and speculate this topic on various related posts via the associated tags. As far as Julie Plec has stated, she would presumably become a vampire, but there are no rules yet. However, she's also stated that "Hope will eventually be a fully realized tribrid, but part of the journey of the series will be getting her there." Prior to season two, it was "One day, certainly, but not anytime soon."
The Merge going forward in Legacies (2.24.20) — There are several posts under this and related tags that discuss possibilities about the Merge in Legacies and whether Lizzie and Josie will (or won't) actually Merge. The Merge can seemingly be avoided by becoming a vampire, per Lizzie's comment in Kai Parker Screwed Us — "I've thought about becoming a vampire. [...] If I did, there wouldn't be a Merge."
Hybrids v. Original Hybrid's ability to Procreate (4.4.20) — Vampire-Hybrids cannot procreate — they are dead/immortal. Klaus was a werewolf-turned-vampire hybrid by magic and is Nature's only loophole for procreation. This loophole has also been stated to have been closed. There are several posts in this regard, i.e. here and here, but it's explained on the Niklaus Mikaelson, Vampire, Hybrid, and Loopholes articles, to name a few. For Hope specifically, please refer to these two posts: here, and here.
Season Nine? (6.18.20) — This is utterly false. Please ignore such "rumors". Duplicated posts asking if this is true will be deleted.
Is Stefanie Salvatore Canon? (6.25.20) — Is she canon? No. She only was mentioned in a wish-reality (which was wished away and hasn't been mentioned since). Is she supernatural. No (both in the wish-reality and per Julie Plec). Is her blood the Cure: A Theory? No, she's otherwise human. According to Julie Plec, she would have to "figure out why a child of theirs would be supernatural and in boarding school." However, there are several post that theorize about this, such as here, here, here, and here, to name a few.
Malivore's Children: A Master Thread. (7.5.20) — There have been a number of post regarding theory about Malivore's children; though beyond Ryan's few words about them, not much else is known. This thread lists most (if not all) relevant posts that discuss Malivore's children in some context. Canonical information, at least regarding the creation and powers can be found on the Malivore article (via the Golem portions, since this page is of hybrid format, suiting both a character and species article). Please continue discussion on the master thread. New posts will be directed here and be subsequently locked or removed.
Elena Gilbert is "Hated"? (8.6.20) — Since this has been a recurring topic, here are number of frequent posts (also here 10.23.20) that may or may not elaborate on reasons why Elena is not liked by some in the fan-base.
Nik (Freya and Keelin's son): A Master Thread (10.11.20) — Yes, Freya and Keelin have a son. In That's Nothing I Had to Remember Freya doesn't confirm who the paternal donor is. In When The Saints Go Marching In, Vincent originally tells Freya no, then tells her that maybe he can find the courage to deal with the possibility of loss when referring to a possible child. He is indirectly confirmed as supernatural, however, since Freya mentions that "[Keelin]'s got an eye on [the Salvatore School] for our son". This thread has a collection of various posts concerning Nik, his species, etc.
Watch Order: TVD, TO, and LGC? (1.17.21) — This is a recurring topic of discussion about what to watch first and/or what order. Canonically, it's TVD, TO (which overlaps with the former, here and there) and, then LGC (which has a lot of references to its predecessors). Ultimately, the decision on how to watch is up to the watcher, but considering this is constantly asked, here are some of the most recent: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, and ten.
