* '''Trivia about them.''' We have lots of tropes and {{Trivia}} that can legitimately apply to creators, like DyeingForYourArt, TrollingCreator, PenName, CreatorBreakdown, and AuthorExistenceFailure. Most of these are okay to include on a creator page, or on their {{Trivia}} subpage as appropriate.

Note, however, that not all pages about people will fall into this category. Some, such as ThePresidents, are UsefulNotes and/or {{Historical Domain Character}}s. Others are pages for {{musicians}} or {{professional wrestl|ing}}ers that, while they may look like creator pages, are actually work pages for documenting the tropes used in their performances (and should be in the Music/ and Wrestling/ Administrivia/{{namespace}}s, respectively, with the page type "work", not "creator").

TV Tropes is primarily about {{trope}}s and the works that use them. However, oftentimes information about an {{author|s}}, {{actor|s}}, {{director|s}}, {{producer|s}}, {{mangaka}}, {{composer|s}}, {{animator|s}}, [[VideogameCompanies developer]], or other creator can be relevant to our understanding of the tropes in their works. To that end, we have {{Creator|s}} pages.

Creator pages go in the Creator/ Administrivia/{{namespace}} and get the "creator" [[WhatPageTypesMean page type]]. We have an index for creators; it can be found [[{{Creators}} here]].

** '''An index of their works that have pages.''' Some creator pages use their bulleted list of works as an index for those works. This is usually reserved for higher-level creators like VideoGameCompanies. Examples include Creator/ValveSoftware and Creator/DarkHorseComics.

* '''CreatorBashing.''' Creator pages should not be used to complain about how much a person sucks. We're not here to hate on people. Multiple creator pages, including UweBoll and {{Microsoft}}, have been sent to the Administrivia/PermanentRedLinkClub because editors just couldn't resist spewing bile. Please keep it neutral.

* '''Tropes applied to the creator as if they are a fictional character.''' Please resist the urge to apply character tropes to RealLife people. We've had a lot of SquarePegRoundTrope issues in the past with this, so as a general guideline, it's best to apply NoRealLifeExamplesPlease to creators. If it seems harmless it might be overlooked JustForFun, and there is an exception for ConversationalTroping as mentioned above, but on the whole this is something [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement best avoided]].
