These have the Flame Bait banner, many of the ones on DarthWiki have had their redirects from the Main wiki made members of the Administrivia/PermanentRedLinkClub. The reason for this is they are used to complain, attract massive amounts of Administrivia/{{natter}} and don't actually contribute anything to the wiki's mission. Do not list or pothole these ''anywhere'', and no examples outside their main page (if the page accepts examples - some of them [[Administrivia/ExampleSectionectomy we don't want any examples of, please]]). The only exception to this is within trope descriptions (above the examples line).

* Have open-to-editing example lists, though if these turn into wretched hives of ThreadMode, they will likely be subjected to an ExampleSectionectomy.

!Special rules for {{Creator|s}} articles
Articles for {{Creators}} (people involved in the writing, production, acting, and other aspects of creating a work) are handled a little differently. Some of these differences are noted above, but will be recaptured here for ease of reference.

Creator articles:
* Never get YMMV examples, on the main or any subpages. This is because we don't trope real people, ever.
** The sole exception is when the YMMV example is about a creator's work '''and''' we do not have an article for that work. In that specific case, it can go on a YMMV subpage for the creator.
** Avoid "general" YMMV examples about a creator's entire body of work. Those are hard to distinguish from talking about the creator themselves. See also "Examples Are Not General" on Administrivia/HowToWriteAnExample.
* Never get Trivia subpages. Trivia examples for creators go on their main article, always.
** Trivia examples for a creator's work follow the same rules as for YMMV examples.
** If we do not have a work article for a Trivia example, then it goes on the creator's main page, not a Trivia subpage.

Please note that articles in the {{Music}} namespace are treated as work articles, and behave normally. They should '''not''' be used to talk about the artist(s) as if they were real people.

YMMV stands for "Your Mileage May Vary". There have been plenty of attempts to pin down what this class objectively ''is'', but the definition in practice--and the reason the "YMMV" distinction exists in the first place--is simple: it's a YMMV item if editors, drive-by and otherwise, can't stop arguing about it. YMMV basically breaks down into 2 subcategories, which are

* On work and creator pages or character sheets they get marked with ''a gray interrobang'', to help people locate and remove them.

* Finally, certain namespaces that are just for fun also don't need to obey these rules. These include Fridge, {{Headscratchers}}, WildMassGuessing, HaikuWiki, and {{Analysis}}. Same goes for the Discussions, Reviews and Live Blogs sections. This does ''not'' mean you can do whatever you please there.

** Part of ''DarthWiki'' and/or have the ''Flame Bait banner''. They should have no examples ''at all'' outside their definition pages.
