* Judging from [[https://twitter.com/Linkara19/status/376817044328415232 this Twitter conversation]], [[WebVideo/AtoptheFourthWall Linkara]] is not a fan of the ''Angel Armor'' book series he wrote as a teenager, and was especially disappointed to learn that both books can be found on Amazon.com.

* [=WatchMojo.com=] seems to regret putting ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', which is generally considered DisneyChannel's MagnumOpus on its "Top 10 Hated Disney Animated Shows" list with the flimsy reasoning of the show's BlackComedy. Many viewers and fans cried foul and called [=WatchMojo=] hypocrites for using that as the only reason why while simultaneously praising ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' despite the latter's ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids far]]'' more twisted sense of humor.

** There once was a time that BoisterousBruiser was called "The Toblerone", after an obscure gag from an episode of ''Series/{{Mystery Science Theater 3000}}'', which was so obtuse that almost nobody got the reference, and the trope page had far fewer wicks and examples than it deserved. As a result, the trope was renamed many years before the purge of character-named tropes, and the site has a [[JustForFun/{{Toblerone}} Just for Fun page]] mocking the original name to this day (which is about the chocolate bar).

** In addition, some tropes, while otherwise perfectly innocuous, used to have names that are generally considered stupid now. Most can be found on the Administrivia/RenamedTropes and Administrivia/PermanentRedLinkClub pages, but there are three that stand out:

** LateArrivalSpoiler was originally called You Should Know This Already. This seems innocuous enough, but probably no name could have encouraged FanMyopia more. Reports of this happening are probably exaggerated, but tropers began to take the name literally, as an excuse to never use spoiler tags. [[InsaneTrollLogic ("After all, the trope is called 'You Should Know This Already', so clearly every reader already knows what's being spoiled, right?")]] Eventually enough tropers were sufficiently annoyed to complain to the moderators, and [[WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings the name was changed without warning]].
** And the most shameful of all: the trope PaedoHunt was first launched with the name '''All Pedophiles Are Child Molesters''' (which, thanks to a pre-existing naming convention, [[UnfortunateImplications implied]] that most pedophiles do not rape children in RealLife.) This caused the aforementioned tropers of ill repute to discover the wiki and act as if it was a haven for them, dramatically increasing the amount of {{Squick}} on the pages (especially those that heavily mention children) ultimately leading to Administrivia/TheSecondGoogleIncident, which [[ForWantOfANail changed the culture of the wiki ever since]].

** During the Dan-era playthrough of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'', Arin stated he now hates the ''WebVideo/{{Sequelitis}}'' video he did for the ''Zelda'' series.

* [=AnimalGuy001=] got a lot of hate for his top 10 most overrated Franchise/{{Pokemon}}, which was one of his first works. In a video he decided that fans could choose which video (or series of videos) was the worst video he ever made. It turned out to be his top 10 most overrated Pokemon video. When he was talking about this video he said:

* Ryanasaurus Enterprises refuses to re-release earlier LSN's[[note]]that's "Logo Surprises and Nightmares" for the uninitiated[[/note]] because of how unprofessional they look, to the point that the company's showrunner, Tropers/{{Ryanasaurus0077}}, is embarrassed by them.

* The first installment of ''Roleplay/TheMassiveMultiFandomRPG'' (now gone from the Internet, unfortunately) was considered this by at least a few GM's and players, in part due to its silliness compared to the later seasons, and the lack of strict standards which resulted e.g. in several highly overpowered characters.

* Many longtime tropers are ashamed of the former Troper Tales and FetishFuel sections of the site, and for good reason. The entries there were [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement so... uh, off-color]], giving ''way'' TooMuchInformation about the tropers who posted there, that they damn near dragged this site's reputation down to the level of [[{{Imageboards}} 4chan]]. Thankfully, they were removed, and they will never come back.

* The crew at IncognitoCinemaWarriorsXP stopped selling copies of their first episode, ''Bride of The Gorilla'' (and never released it to {{Rifftrax}}), citing the low quality relative to subsequent episodes, elements that flat out didn't work (like a jarringly out-of-place LaughTrack) and a lack of interest in redoing the episode to bring it up to par. It's a LostEpisode now and it's staying that way. (You can't even find clips of the thing on YouTube).
