* '''JustForFun''': Because we're casual around here, there's a lot of troper-added content that's, well just for fun. {{Self Demonstrating Article}}s, [[SoYouWantTo/SeeTheIndex "So You Want To"]] guides, and many other things can be found here. This isn't license to go crazy, though. Be appropriate and respect that we want this material separated so it doesn't get confused with on-mission articles.

* '''UsefulNotes''': Where RealLife intersects with fiction, it is often handy to have a way to separate the Hollywood version of reality from the genuine thing. UsefulNotes serves this purpose. It is not a soapbox, nor it is is an excuse to become Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} and document everything that happens.

* '''[[YMMV.HomePage YMMV]]''' and '''AudienceReactions''': We broadly categorize these under tropes, but really they're opinions about a work rather than stuff that's factually present in a work. They get their own subpages to keep the main articles about the tropes.

They get their own subpages Both go on the work's YMMV subpage to keep the main articles about page clear for objective stuff.

* There is a standard way to format examples. Titles of films, shows, and albums are ''italicized''. Use two separate apostrophes around the title: [=''ThePriceIsRight''=] for ''ThePriceIsRight''. Titles of episodes and songs are in quotes: "Brittle Bullet." See Administrivia/HowToWriteAnExample for details. Really, take a look at it.
