* Jump the gun at any given opportunities. For example, add BrokenBase and InternetBackdraft five minutes (or less) after an episode of your favorite show has aired. Who cares if no one will talk about it the next week? Same everytime a creator gives vague information about an upcoming work.

** See, it's funny 'cause ''it's a bad idea''. In fact, that's the entire premise of this page! All examples should be taken sarcastically. Even this one, because you see, the page is titled "how ''not'' to write an example", so therefore something like ''this'', written completely seriously ([[StealthParody unless it's not]]) should be...um...[[FanFic/DoomRepercussionsOfEvil the demons]].
*** The Demons. Lolz. That's funny, because it's a reference to DoomRepercussionsOfEvil, where one of the last lines is "No! You ''are'' the demons!" He potholed it, but I thought I should make it [[CaptainObvious extra clear]].

* Remember, the ContentPolicy is more like a guideline really. Feel free to add {{Lemon}}s and {{Hentai}} as much as you want, and describe every moment in detail. Also, put NSFW links without any warning, because everyone loves to stumble on a shock site at work. Especially do so when there are other websites that could make the same point.
** If you use the ContentPolicy yourself, only use it to flag works that you personally think are creepy, regardless of the actual rating.

* FanficRecs is where to put your gross fetishes. Your ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony'' or Franchise/{{Sonic}} {{Lemon}}s are clearly things you want the rest of the wiki to know about. Fuck The ContentPolicy!

** Also, don't forget that this isn't limited to fictional characters, you can use the examples as your soapbox for bitching about or making fun of the actors that play them, too! On that note, no joke ever stops being funny and fresh, so don't worry that you'll be the 532145687528th person to make yet another LindsayLohan is a trainwreck, Orlando Bloom looks like a woman, Hayden Christensen is a lousy actor, etc. joke.

* Straight from the Everything Is a Subversion's office: remember, everybody, ''everything ever is an [[AvertedTrope aversion.]]'' Especially when you want to say that a trope is subverted but the NotASubversion page makes you scared (valid subversions or otherwise), or something's actually justified or downplayed or played with but you just don't have the proper vocabulary to say it, or God forbid... *drumroll* ''it's actually played straight'' (we prefer this most with a long, blathery explanation of why your show would never use something [[TheTropelessTale as overdone as a trope]] due to a small technicality, but a short blathery explanation will work). The thought that the vast majority of averted tropes would not be notable enough to be marked on a work page is, frankly, outrageous.

* XJustX and TwoWordsAddedEmphasis are the most vital potholing you can possibly do. This means that your show is awesome enough that it shouldn't need an explanation.

* The [[Administrivia/TheContentPolicyAndThe5PCircuit 5P]] stands for Place, Product, Promotion, Price and People. TV Tropes is an advertising site after all. Therefore you should [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mW8d4oZ_UCE&spfreload=10 advertise your favorite show by shamelessly putting an ad in the example you mentioned]] [[AdOfLose because no good ad ever pops up on your toolbar]]. Bonus points if the ad in question is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lD3YfF4N2jQ&spfreload=10 not safe for work]]. Tvtropes wants to urge people to see porn after all.
