All tropes in a list should be at the same level of indentation, and in alphabetical order. See Administrivia/HowToWriteAnExample. {{Sub Trope}}s should not be listed in sub-bullets beneath their parent tropes.

A three-bullet situation ([=***=]) usually indicates a comment on the item above it which has two bullets. This is a sign that that the list is heading toward ThreadMode (discussion). That's not a good thing. The trope lists are not discussions. Discussions take place on the discussion pages or in the forums. However, three-bullet situations sometimes are legit. Rarely. If you find yourself needing a third level of indentation, take a look at using a [[Administrivia/TextFormattingRules header]], instead.

Let's say ''Claire and David'' and ''Alice and Bob'' are two shows. Each should have a separate first-bullet point. Like this:
* ''Alice and Bob'': this trope is used when...
* ''Claire and David'': this trope is used when...


Added DiffLines:

Whenever the works are in different franchises, each separate franchise gets its own first-level point. Let's say ''Claire and David'' and ''Alice and Bob'' are two shows. Each should have a separate first-bullet point.

'''Right'''
* ''Alice and Bob'': this trope is used when...
* ''Claire and David'': this trope is used when...

'''Wrong'''
* ''Claire and David'': this trope is used when...
** ''Alice and Bob'' used it too when...

----
!! Quote indentation

When multiple examples within a list have quotes, you need to make sure to indent and separate them correctly. A quote is designated with the "[=->=]" markup, with additional hyphens ('-') increasing indentation. You always want the quote indentation to be one level deeper than the bullet that they are related to.

'''Right'''
* BadassBoast:
** Alice tells Bob that she's going to beat up everyone.
--->'''Alice''': I'm going to beat up everyone!
** Charlie has had enough of Alice's fooling around.
--->'''Charlie''': Alice, I am far more awesome than you.

Of note, each quote should have [[Administrivia/ZeroContextExample explanatory example text]]. Don't leave a quote hanging without a parent bullet unless it applies to the same example as the previous one. In the latter case, separate distinct quotes with a forced line break, using [=\=][=\=] on a blank line. This should be used only rarely.

'''Right'''

-->'''Charlie''': Alice, I am far more awesome than you.\\
