* When using spoiler tags, remember to hide [[spoiler:the chapter or episode name/number]] so that people who are partway through the work will have no idea if it's safe for them to uncover the spoilers. Because only fans who have seen all 2000 episodes of your favorite LongRunner series should be allowed to read your examples. Bonus points if you are discussing content from an upcoming episode, so that even people who have seen all current episodes won't be safe from your spoilers.

Oh, and contrast Administrivia/HowToWriteAnExample. If you want to propose a whole new trope, see [[DarthWiki/HowNotToWriteAYKTTW How Not to Write a YKTTW]]. If you have trouble with the trope definitions, see Darthwiki/CrappyTropeDefinitions.

* If a work uses a trope in an overly-done manner, there is only one word in the English language to describe it: {{egregious}}.

* SelfDemonstrating SelfDemonstrating/CharacterPages are even better. Don't bother giving your character a unique voice. Just copy and paste the normal character page, and replace "She/he" with "I". Also, be sure to confuse the canon portrayal with the {{meme}}tic portrayal, to make them more opaque to non-fans. Also, don't link the normal page, when you can link your crappy fanfic, I mean, the self demonstrating version,.

** Hey everyone! I'm SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} and I'm here to tell you that you should expand my self-demonstratingness out of my character page by always writing about me in first person on every page you mention me on! I'm known for BreakingTheFourthWall, so it's only fair I also break the fourth wall on other pages like Characters.MarvelVsCapcom3MarvelCharacters. Sure, it might be confusing to unfamiliar readers, but I'm famous for using ConfusionFu so that just makes things even funnier!

* Subtly circumvent any rules on [[ThisTroper not referring to yourself]] by saying "at least one fan" instead. After all, there's a possibility that you were actually talking about somebody else, so it's not just troping yourself.

Added DiffLines:

* If a character from non-English media has a DubNameChange, you should always use the superior original name (especially for Japanese media), unless you prefer the English name. If there is no official English translation, you should just use whatever translation you prefer. In either case, you should seek out any pages that uses the "wrong" translation and [[Administrivia/EditWar change them to your preferred one and prevent anybody from changing it back]].

Added DiffLines:

* You should add a trope to a work as soon as [[{{Foreshadowing}} hints start to appear]] that the trope ''[[Administrivia/SpeculativeTroping might]]'' happen in a later episode. Because TV Tropes is a race to see who can add tropes first. If [[ShockingSwerve the work ends up going in a completely different direction]], though, you should not go back and remove or correct your example, because having to acknowledge that you wrote something wrong is too shameful.
