You've just launched a trope, [[Administrivia/NeedsABetterName it may or may not have a good name]], you [[Administrivia/NeedsAnIndex may or may not know what index it fits in]], but you can't think of a good description. The one you had on [[YouKnowThatThingWhere YKTTW]] was [[Administrivia/YKTTWGuidelines too short, too dry, not clear, etc]].

Alternatively, maybe you have simply come upon a page with a truly bad trope description -- one that you feel unable or unwilling to fix up on your own.

To get help: (1) add a link to the offending trope to one of the categories at the bottom of this page (try to be specific), (2) put a link to "NeedsABetterDescription" on the offending trope's main page, and (3) put a note on the offending trope's discussion page explaining what the problem with the description is. When you've done all of these three things, others will bless you with their WikiMagic.

Note that there are three action items in the previous paragraph. For best results, please complete all of them.

Please do not mark tropes whose description is merely less-than-perfect. We're looking here for tropes whose descriptions are defective enough that they cannot just be left alone. See the categories below for some of the reasons you might list a page.

If, instead, you are one of those people who wants to help clean up the stuff on this list, here are a few pointers:
* You don't have to be cute, just understandable. When in doubt, be BoringButPractical.
* We have Indexes for related tropes, you don't need to reference every similar trope within the article.
* Page quotes are optional, but should be helpful to the description, not merely cool or funny.
* Unless the trope is an index and has dozens of different connotations, there is no need to make the description a thesis paper. Simpler and shorter descriptions help keep the examples clear.
* Examples go in the example list, the description should be free of them. The only exception may be the TropeNamer or an OlderThanTheyThink example.

For the convenience of those working on this list, it is divided into a number of subcategories. Please try to keep these up to date by correcting categorizations as needed. Obviously, some of the categorization is subjective, so feel free to move something that seems to be in the wrong place. If you put a page on the list of defective pages, please also put a note in the discussion for that page as to what seems to be the problem.

Please both remove a trope from this list and remove the link from that trope's page to here once a better description has been given. In general, please remember to delete items from these lists as you move or complete them. The list tends to pile up, so please try to help keep it clean.

There are also two Special Efforts forum threads to ask for help for description fixing: [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13164954120A97000100&page=1#1 Trope Description Improvement Drive]] for tropes and [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13245720310A36120100&page=1#1 Improving work and creator page descriptions]] for work or creator pages.

You've just launched a trope, [[Administrivia/NeedsABetterName it may or may not have a good name]], you [[NeedsAnIndex may or may not know what index it fits in]], but you can't think of a good description. The one you had on [[YouKnowThatThingWhere YKTTW]] was [[Administrivia/YKTTWGuidelines too short, too dry, not clear, etc]].
