* If you come back later to find that an edit you made is changed or gone, it may be that another {{troper}} disagreed. Check the Edit History for the page to see if a reason was left. Do not simply add your example back; doing so is called {{Edit War}}ring and is very impolite.

This wiki is [[Tropers/TheAdvertisementServer ad-supported]]. You can donate to turn off ads in the forums, but not in the main wiki. To report an ad that violates our rules, post in [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.org/pmwiki/addpost.php?discussion=13223684920A10189100 this forum thread]] and we'll see what we can do about it. We don't have any direct control over the ads; they are generated by our providers based on page content, your cookies, and the demographics gleaned from your browser and IP address.
