Wick cleanup, Edit War moved to Administrivia
Much of our wiki relies on the "Examples" section, where we pull our many articles together. Every now and then you might see a WikipediaUpdater who will delete your example with no reason. A small EditWar of delete/restore will start, before someone on the discussion page brings up "notability." This page is your response.

Read the article, please. It is not about us being a time-sink.
Wikipedia tries in many regards to be the opposite of what we are. We want to be fun, interesting and a cool place to [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife sink hours of time]]. Wikipedia wants to be a compilation of previously published facts from respected sources. SeriousBusiness. Presented with a choice between serious and fun, we went with fun.

No, not really.
We have examples ranging from media as diverse as {{Film}} to FanFiction and everything in between. Removing tropes, examples... anything... because of "notability" stifles the wiki. It can intimidate new writers who wanted to put in an example they liked and had it shot down. Hell, tropes are ''defined'' by their examples.

This is a double-edged sword. Someone could add an example they made up and there is really nothing you could do to stop them. If the discussion finds an example to be purely fiction then it might get deleted, ''might''. That's the way of things. But remember, we're here to have fun. Don't let this stuff burn you out.
