Here at TV Tropes, we like to encourage editors to dive right in and add examples without forcing them to spend months lurking around and arduously studying proper [[Administrivia/TextFormattingRules editing]] [[Administrivia/PageTemplates form]]. Because that's for suckers. This isn't TheOtherWiki, which means we want to have fun and screw the rules ([[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney with or without the money]]). With that in mind, here are some favorite things our tropers do when posting.

** Actually, anyone who reads such an example is morally obliged to add an edit crying bad research, [[ArtisticLicense You Fail X Forever]] and/or [[http://www.google.com * INSERT INSULTING AND/OR PATRONISING COMMENT ABOUT GOOGLE HERE* ]]. (TheOtherWiki also works for that last example.) Because simply editing the reference (if correct) or deleting (if not) won't give the poor, confused troper the definitive answer they require.

** If you want to make a sarcastic comment about a show everyone ought to know, e.g. ''XenaWarriorPrincess'', you can be especially clever by calling it "some action-adventure show from the 90's" rather than simply using its name.

** Or just use immature logic to make out an innocent event as if it were radar material, like [[TheCloneWars Anakin giving Padme his lighsaber]] (HURR HURR HURR)
