* Folder markup doesn't work in [=YKTTW=], but don't be afraid to use it anyway. Having examples in folders from the start will save someone the trouble of folderizing the page later when it gets longer. You can use the WikiSandbox to check whether you've done the markup correctly.

* Numerals work in trope titles, but not as a leading character (for example, [=3DMovie=] must become {{ThreeDMovie}}), because the software treats numerals as lower-case.

* Just as nothing is completely SelfExplanatory, no example is so well-known that no description is needed. An example that consists entirely of "Series... Just, Series." or "[[TwoWordsObviousTrope One Word: Series]]" isn't very informative or interesting.

* When proposing that an existing trope is the same or in some other way related, do not post only the TropeName, and especially not in '''bold''' text. That is a ZeroContextExample, and more likely to lead to confusion and conflict than enlightenment- it cannot be assumed that everyone will read the [=YKTTW=] and the cited trope the same way. Bold text is commonly used on the internet to infer shouting, which is rude in most conversations and circumstances including this one.

Hit the "Show Drafts" button on a given [=YKTTW=][[note]](protip: you can open a YKTTW in a new browser tab if you want)[[/note]] and scroll to the bottom. Click "Reply". Enter what you have to say into the box, then press "Send". When a new reply is entered, the [=YKTTW=] will be bumped to the top of the page.

Replying to a [=YKTTW=] is a form of WikiMagic: it's how a page gains examples, content and sometimes a better name. Browsing [=YKTTW=] and adding your comments is how a [=YKTTW=] becomes a trope. When the [=YKTTW=] is launched, it's the launcher's responsibility to read through the comments and add the examples to the page. There is a tool on the Discussion created when the trope is launched to help with this, "Show All Markup" will provide a copy of the YKTTW and replies that can be copy-n-pasted.
