[[caption-width-right:203:[[{{FORKS}} Dark]] [[YinYangBomb meets]] [[{{SPOON}} light.]]]]
We are a society of people who want trope names that are both clever and sensical. We are supporters of Main/AddedAlliterativeAppeal, Main/JustForPun, and Main/ThisTropeNameReferencesItself. The debate about cultural references ultimately results in fewer dynamic trope names, whether they are as lame as RedemptionDemotion or as confusing as TheRadar. In this way we are allies of Main/{{KNIVES}}, and side with Main/{{SPOON}} and Main/FoRKS depending on the conflict (though over time, so many infractions appear on both sides it's hard to like either).

A guideline: Platter will generally support HotForStudent or ScrewTheRulesIHavePlot as titles compared to others they have had in their lifetimes. These are cultural references, but simultaneously amusing and clear descriptions. NewRulesAsThePlotDemands is blandly ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, while MaryKayLetourneauTeachesHere is unnecessarily obtuse.

Some more guidelines: If a {{SPOON}} endorsed name is MORE obtuse, it's probably a bad sign. OnlySaneEmployee sounds like the office's version of OnlySaneMan, not LizLemonJob. If the change is pretty arbitrary, such as OcularGushers as opposed to HighPressureTears or EmptyQuiver, that's also a bad sign. On the {{FORKS}} angle of things: Using tropes to name other tropes, with the exception of a StockPhrase, is probably a bad idea if the usage is outside of the popular lexicon or TropesOfLegend. Likewise for TropeNamers that are not TropeOverdosed and popular IRL, or characters as trope namers that don't pass the OneMarioLimit test.

Currently, we solely consist of the following tropers, but we hope to obtain more members. Collect your SugarWiki/PLATTERPin, vote for [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/crowner.php/CrowningMomentOfAwesome/BestTropeTitle your favorite trope name]] and join here.

* Someguy (not Tropers/SomeGuy).
* Tropers/StevenAsHimself, [[CompletelyMissingThePoint can't we all just get along]]?
* Tropers/{{Stormtroper}}: Witty, clear, concise should apply to names too.
* Tropers/{{zachol}}: Bland names make me sad, as do specific, arbitrary references (TheSnarkKight was once known as "The Daria", leaving people who did not know the show in the dark).
* Tropers/JBridge: Yo.
* Tropers/{{Jesin}}: I'm here. Several recent renames have definitely been for the worse.
* Tropers/{{DJ White}}: I'm Yin baby. Just like the atmosphere.
* Tropers/SapphireFlame believes that trope names should ideally be understood just from the title, but that doesn't mean that we can't have ''fun''.
* Tropers/SerenYGogledd: Also wants a return to the relaxed atmosphere.
* Tropers/{{Kriegsmesser}}. Shing.
* Tropers/{{Spidey3000}} is taking a third option...or is he?
* Despite being a member of {{KNIVES}}, Tropers/LittleSerge would just like express how apathetically proud he is of all of you, and that this group gives me the same happy feeling as {{Yotsuba}} does.
** [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming :3]]
* Tropers/RedWren would like to thank you all. [[ThePollyanna Things are looking up.]]
* Tropers/FFShinra All in balance and moderation...
* Tropers/CanvasWolfDoll: I mean, I have no idea who Xanatos is, but I don't let THAT stop me. If the name's a reference, let it be! If it's a brief description, let that be too!
* Tropers/QueenOfDorkness: First come, first served... unless first come is something impossible to remember, like CatapultTurtleFlyingCastleGambit.
* Tropers/HydroGlobus: TankGoodness ThisExists! I join for names like SignLanguage or the UrbanLegendOfZelda - real punny, only references widely known media and/or references an already accepted TVTropes thing (like PLATTER itself or the ThanatosGambit for example).
* Tropers/{{Thnikkafan}} is here, and ready to serve.
* Tsurara Uzumaki wants to join the ranks. Unity for all tropers!
* Tropers/{{Brannock}} will quote Bloodpouch: "Memorability matters just as much as clarity."
* Tropers/{{Ingonyama}} believes in ThePowerOfFriendship and RuleOfFun above all else. ^_^
* Tropers/{{InvertedTritone}} is all for clarity.
* Tropers/BetaRay reporting for duty.
* Falconet
* Tropers/{{Fishsicles}} pledges his [[spoiler:utter lack of]] honor! \m/.(0,0).\m/
* Tropers/{{Wheezy}} - SureWhyNot. I like creative trope titles.
* Tropers/{{Ayries}} - the best part of TVTropes is realising it's made you speak in a language hilarious to you and nonsensical to nontropers. (The best recruitment method!)
* Tropers/{{DavinValkri}} signing on. Because I can.
* Tropers/{{Specialist290}}: As a member of {{KNIVES}} myself, I wholly approve of this organization and am joining it as well.
* Tropers/{{happymediocrity}} Count me in! :) I appreciate clear, memorable titles as well. ^_^
* [[Tropers/{{Contributors/Zenith}} Zenith]] because pro.
* Tropers/{{Doomlewa}} Previously unaligned but finds fun more important then petty squabbles. For this reason he is also a member of {{KNIVES}}
* Tropers/{{Mariecat}} : [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Because names should be both fun and informative!]]
* Tropers/{{Superior}}: [[TVtropesWillEnhanceYourLife TVTropes Enriched My Life]] by teaching me about obscure character names and media trivia. I want the future generations to experience the same thing!
* Tropers/{{Phoenixor}} feels that balance is the key to true enlightenment. Also, he figures this side is most likely to win.
* Tropers/OrchidbreezeofFireClan: Oh yeah. Neither {{SPOON}} nor {{FORKS}} is always right. Though I would have used 'righteously' or something rather than 'relishably'....
* Tropers/{{Surenity}}: Just because a lot of the time I agree with SPOON, but not every time, it just depends on the particular name. Overly bland names are boring, overly obscure names are annoying. Then again, when I get the obscure reference I like them, so perhaps that's a little hypocritical on my part. I hope TheBaldrick and ScrewySquirrel don't get changed.
* Tropers/{{Stickmeister0}}: What really pisses me off is that there are more than 20 tropes with a Japanese title. Those are never subjected to a rename. Ever. {{Pettanko}}? A girl with no chest. {{Tsundere}}? A jerk with a soft side. I HAD NO IDEA WHAT THESE MEANT AT FIRST. ARGH! I'm open to clever and funny titles, mainly because I prefer the laid back style of the wiki. I come here to laugh and learn at the same time.
* Tropers/KilroyWasHere: I [[RuleOfFun enjoy laughing]] when I read trope titles. Stop with the string of simple names, guiez.
* Tropers/{{Aristocles}} likes clarity, but doesn't want to go all Wikipedia on everything.
* Thursday who loves tvtropes if the titles make her laugh.
* Tropers/{{SaintSaturn}} thinks TVTropes should be as witty and fun as it is informative.
* Tropers/{{inked}} who is totally in agreement, if that's a phrase. And if it's not, she still is.
* Tropers/{{absusm}}, who thinks that style and substance must be balanced if tropedom is to survive.
* Tropers/{{Remegy}}: [[{{Futurama}} Loves the]] [[strike: tentacle]] {{PLATTER}}! [[BlatantLies ...yes, yes he does...]]
* Tropers/{{fairywaif}} I like funny titles, but they have to be understandable! This reflects my position exactly.
* Tropers/DoomFilledDoom wants more fun yet comprehensible trope titles.
* Tropers/LNERfan loves a good balance in the force, so is all for the cause!
* Tropers/{{Jopalopa}} thinks this is the best place so far... because {{SPOON}} and {{FoRKS}} are a little too strict for them, and {{KNIVES}} [[GodwinsLaw resembles Nazism a bit too much.]]
* Tropers/{{dxman}} likes good trope names no matter if they are long or short.
* Tropers/{{Forceflow}} misses all the punny, funny names. Obscure names encourage active exploration of the wiki.
* Tropers/{{Quillpaw}}, who feels {{SPOON}} lost it at renaming YouShouldKnowThisAlready, doesn't care for {{FoRKS}}'s vehemence at BugsMeanyIsGonnaWalk, but cares enough not to give in to the apathy of {{KNIVES}}. Let's keep the wiki fun.
* Tropers/{{Berr}}, albeit more on the {{FoRKS}} end of things, but loves a good meaningful redirect, would like to say, ''"can't [[strike:[[{{Troper}} This Troper]]]] [[strike:youse guys]] we all just get along?"''
* Tropers/{{Haldo}} thinks we shouldn't worry about titles that are hard to understand as long as we have the [[LaconicWiki]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3VTIHyl2SA Might I suggest a theme song for us?]]
* Tropers/{{Mr3urious}}: I enjoy both descriptive names and clever ones. This seems like the group for me. :)
* Tropers/{{Kathadrion}}
* Tropers/{{SgtFrog1}} reporting for duty! [[VerbalTic De ari]][[KeroroGunso masu!]]
** Has visited FORKS a few times, and is a supporter, though not a member. SPOON renamed ScrewTheRulesIHavePlot! Argh! Why, SPOON, why?!
* Tropers/{{Iamdatroper}} is now a member of PLATTER. . .at least until some other, more suitable organization relating to trope names whose name is helpfully backronymed into dishware/utensils comes up.
* Tropers/{{PAL25E}} - Personal Android Lackey Type 25, Editor Model, supports the idea of trope names that are as witty as they are informative. After all, you can always use redirects and alt-titles if you're not satisfied.
* Tropers/{{JosephLeito}} Stick a FORK in the SPOONs, I'm done with them. Also, go CUPS!
* Tropers/{{Doryna}} Enjoys bad puns more than she should, but also wants to be able to find a trope when she needs it.
* @/{{Nightsky}}
* Tropers/{{Klon}} - Unique, yet sensible titles are what made this wiki great. Merely rational titles will let it wither and die, and I like this place too much for that. Do we have a theme song, by the way?
* Tropers/{{Homestar09_Mario08}} - Common sense trumps all name arguments.
* Tropers/{{Xamphynx}} I support... whatever you guys are oing. Good luck.
* Tropers/{{banjo2E}} - I tend to lean more towards cleverness than accessibility, but I agree that both are important to this wiki. If the titles for tropes hadn't been clever when I came here, I'd never have stayed.
* Tropers/{{guardyanangel}}- [[{{SPOON}} Forget]] [[{{KNIVES}} these]] [[{{FORK}} utensils.]] [[{{PLATTER}} Dish-]] and [[{{CUPS}} Drink-]]ware all the way!
* Tropers/{{LadyAmi}}- A major reason TV Tropes is so awesome is the clever names!
* Tropers/{{NorthernDruid}} - Hanging down on this side of the fence separating {{PLATTER}} and {{KNIVES}}.
* Tropers/{{TheStray}} - Proudly licking the PLATTER for cool names.
* Tropers/OriginalHobbit- I like it when clever names make sense and aren't too long. Less confusion=happy Tropers, and clever titles enhance our vocabulary
* Tropers/CleverPun - My ultimate goal is to see FunnyAneurysmMoment renamed. Let the fruitless quests continue!
* Tropers/{{Ladygem}}- can't we all just get along?
* Tropers/{{Brogaglas}}- We're not Encyclopedia Dramatica, but we're not TheOtherWiki either. Three cheers for common sense!
* Tropers/{{Vortor}}- Joining up here, although I tend towards lurking, and I might end up being slightly FoRK-y.
* Tropers/{{ThomasCastle}} - Best of both worlds seems like a good thing. Relevant to my interests, I suppose.
* Tropers/{{AOTKorby}} - Certainly prefers humor over bland ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin names, but there are definitely trope names that go past the realm of reason.
* Tropers/{{DamianMask}} - I was going to join {{KNIVES}} but I didn't because I thought, HEY isn't PLATTER so much better!
* Tropers/{{MayOfSpace}} - Only violent psychopath here. Don't turn around.
* Tropers/{{MegaRock35}} - Because a good Trope Title should be witty AND make sense
* Tropers/{{JHM}} - Peace, Prosperity, Puns! AddedAlliterativeAppeal for All!
* Tropers/{{Aryn}} - For so long as the threats of {{SPOON}} and FoRKS still loom over the fair wiki of TVTropes.
* Tropers/{{Ehye}} would not have her beloved TV Tropes turn into either TheOtherWiki nor a collection of mind-boggling titles.
* Tropers/{{Axelsonfire}} is joining your ranks. She loves the culture related titles that are fun and make sense.
* Tropers/{{Owfin}} was almost going to join {{FORKS}}, but after actually finding herself in agreement with the change from You Fail X Forever to X Goof, she decided to sit on this side of the fence. Consider yourself warned, {{SPOON}}. You may have done good this time, but if you unnecessarily rename another trope and turn it into something bland... you may find me joining the dark side. That said, I support PLATTER's mission and common sense! I also appreciate {{CUPS}}, because a great image in conjunction with a great title makes for a memorable trope.
* Tropers/{{Flioro}}
* Tropers/{{Arc9}} - The way I see it, the title needs to be memorable to even be remembered in the first place, but if it's not informative you'll only confuse it with other (similar) titles. So here's where my support goes.
* Tropers/{{HumanaUox}}: supporter of stable sense
* @/{{Jinjoman}} will join this organization. Names can be clever and creative as well as indicative of what the trope actually is.
* @/{{Tandra88}} likes this a lot! That's why I can't hardly remember most of the tropes names. They're so bland. Really, TV Tropes? And..OMGTHERESAPINAWESOME!!
* @/WeepingWillow - I'll join because I think that trope titles should be both creative ''and'' understandable.
* Tropers/SergeantLuke is proud to be a member of PLATTER! Seriously, conflict is never a good thing; we should all come to sensible decisions when it comes to trope names, and neither FORKS nor SPOON seems to support that.
* @/{{Xtifr}} - I wanted to join {{KNIVES}}, but the {{SPOON}}s and FoRKS made it impossible.
* @/SunnyV
* @/{{Cameoflage}} - I know I'm a card-carrying member of FoRKS (as of writing this) but I'm no great fan of obtuse titles. I just want the replacements to be fun, not boring.
* @/{{dragongirlhellfire}} - I'm almost tempted to count this as my political ideology. Certainly going to wear the pin!
* @/{{Madrugada}} -- I think each rename should be judged on its own merits. Simple enough.
* @/CommanderObvious - a good cause needs a good person: me
* @/RoshinDragoness - All these changes are ruining the site for me. This site is supposed to be ''humorous'' first and foremost, with comprehensibility a secondary concern, and by taking the funny out of the titles and jettisoning other bits of awesome (I refer to Troper Tales being hacked off into its own site), the site is losing its primary appeal.
* [[@/{{Pokenatic}} Pokénatic]] - Best of both worlds indeed. Although I don't like the title changes that has been sweeping the site for a while now and I did like the names of some of those tropes that you needed some info to understand without checking out the page, I believe that trope names should always be witty.
* @/PrimeOfPerfection - SPOON takes all the fun out of things while FORKS can lead to it being too confusing. It's not about taking sides, but finding a balance. Yin/Yang!
* Tropers/{{MSAdict}} is [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turning]] away from {{FoRKS}} in the name of balance. There's merit in all types of names. Long ones can be creative, while short ones can be to the point. I guess there's equality in everything.
* @/{{Blissey1}}- When I found they changed HotForTeacher, I was devastated. I thought "but it was a pop culture reference and descriptive at the same time! It was a perfect trope name! why change it?!" I'm so glad to know that there's a group of similarly minded people. PLATTER has my support!
* @/ShadowBender - All I wanted to say has been said. There is no need to state the obvious. HAIL {{PLATTER}}!
* {{Tropers/Gillespie}} is glad to be here :>
* {{Tropers/Trismegustis}}: Double-agenting with FoRKS. I tend to think they're right more often, but this philosophy is is much more encompassing.
* {{Tropers/KingNerd}}: I agree that names should be clever and accurate at the same time truly the best [[SecretOrganizationCravingIntelligentEnigmaticTropersYonder SOCIETY]] around.
* @/KyleJacobs: Recently defected from {{SPOON}} due to their lack of a sense of humor.
* {{Tropers/PinkHeartChainsaw}} This is an ideal for all names.
* @/{{razorrozar7}} is defecting from SPOON because he has finally come to his senses. Also in {{KNIVES}}.
* @/MotorRunner: @/ShadowBender and I are the same person.
* {{Tropers/Troliolio}} has recently defected from {{FoRKS}}.
* {{Tropers/McJeff}}: Double agent with {{FoRKS}} here. Some names just plain are unnecessarily obtuse or clunky (hi FlamingCobraSugarCellar), but most trope-referential names are still far better than the dull, clunky, boring-but-''allegedly''-practical ones the Spoons like.
* {{Tropers/dmboogie}}: Checked out the various editing "Factions". This one seemed to fit my preferences for trope titles. Voila.
* {{Tropers/Kardamon}} hereby pledges loyalty to the ideals of PLATTER and vows to uphold the honor (or lack thereof) of our glorious [[{{Yakuza}} organisation]] to the last drop of his HotBlood. My [[RoyalRapier rapier]] is yours, if you will have me...lords and ladies.
* Aranamor: I've come to my senses mostly, though I'm still primarily with {{FoRKS}}. If they aren't going to listen to us folks from the darth wiki, maybe they'll at least take our advice under a veneer of 'positivity and legitimacy'. You have my shillelagh at your disposal.
* {{Tropers/RosesSpindle}}: Yet another defector from {{FoRKS}} joining the ranks! While I have secretly agreed for a while that some of the name changes really were necessary, changing DroppedABridgetOnHim to UnsettlingGenderReveal was the final straw![[hottip:*: Seriously, the former evoked that one moment where it hits you like a ton of bricks that the cute girl you've been eying is really a boy, while the latter is just plain dull.]] Where's the pizazz? Where's the wit? Where's the fun?
* Tropers/{{/sjcodan}} I love me some funny names, but not all tropes need em. Long live the Platter.

* Tropers/{{Phoenixor}} feels that balance is the key to true enlightenment. Also, he figures this side is most likely to win.
* Tropers/OrchidbreezeofFireClan: Oh yeah. Neither {{SPOON}} nor {{FORKS}} is always right. Though I would have used 'righteously' or something rather than 'relishably'....
* Tropers/{{Surenity}}: Just because a lot of the time I agree with SPOON, but not every time, it just depends on the particular name. Overly bland names are boring, overly obscure names are annoying. Then again, when I get the obscure reference I like them, so perhaps that's a little hypocritical on my part. I hope TheBaldrick and ScrewySquirrel don't get changed.
* Tropers/{{Stickmeister0}}: What really pisses me off is that there are more than 20 tropes with a Japanese title. Those are never subjected to a rename. Ever. {{Pettanko}}? A girl with no chest. {{Tsundere}}? A jerk with a soft side. I HAD NO IDEA WHAT THESE MEANT AT FIRST. ARGH! I'm open to clever and funny titles, mainly because I prefer the laid back style of the wiki. I come here to laugh and learn at the same time.
* Tropers/KilroyWasHere: I [[RuleOfFun enjoy laughing]] when I read trope titles. Stop with the string of simple names, guiez.
* Tropers/{{Aristocles}} likes clarity, but doesn't want to go all Wikipedia on everything.
* Thursday who loves tvtropes if the titles make her laugh.
* Tropers/{{SaintSaturn}} thinks TVTropes should be as witty and fun as it is informative.
* Tropers/{{inked}} who is totally in agreement, if that's a phrase. And if it's not, she still is.
* Tropers/{{absusm}}, who thinks that style and substance must be balanced if tropedom is to survive.
* Tropers/{{Remegy}}: [[{{Futurama}} Loves the]] [[strike: tentacle]] {{PLATTER}}! [[BlatantLies ...yes, yes he does...]]
* Tropers/{{fairywaif}} I like funny titles, but they have to be understandable! This reflects my position exactly.
* Tropers/DoomFilledDoom wants more fun yet comprehensible trope titles.
* Tropers/LNERfan loves a good balance in the force, so is all for the cause!
* Tropers/{{Jopalopa}} thinks this is the best place so far... because {{SPOON}} and {{FoRKS}} are a little too strict for them, and {{KNIVES}} [[GodwinsLaw resembles Nazism a bit too much.]]
* Tropers/{{dxman}} likes good trope names no matter if they are long or short.
* Tropers/{{Forceflow}} misses all the punny, funny names. Obscure names encourage active exploration of the wiki.
* Tropers/{{Quillpaw}}, who feels {{SPOON}} lost it at renaming YouShouldKnowThisAlready, doesn't care for {{FoRKS}}'s vehemence at BugsMeanyIsGonnaWalk, but cares enough not to give in to the apathy of {{KNIVES}}. Let's keep the wiki fun.
* Tropers/{{Berr}}, albeit more on the {{FoRKS}} end of things, but loves a good meaningful redirect, would like to say, ''"can't [[strike:[[{{Troper}} This Troper]]]] [[strike:youse guys]] we all just get along?"''
* Tropers/{{Haldo}} thinks we shouldn't worry about titles that are hard to understand as long as we have the [[LaconicWiki]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3VTIHyl2SA Might I suggest a theme song for us?]]
* Tropers/{{Mr3urious}}: I enjoy both descriptive names and clever ones. This seems like the group for me. :)
* Tropers/{{Kathadrion}}
* Tropers/{{SgtFrog1}} reporting for duty! [[VerbalTic De ari]][[KeroroGunso masu!]]
** Has visited FORKS a few times, and is a supporter, though not a member. SPOON renamed ScrewTheRulesIHavePlot! Argh! Why, SPOON, why?!
* Tropers/{{Iamdatroper}} is now a member of PLATTER. . .at least until some other, more suitable organization relating to trope names whose name is helpfully backronymed into dishware/utensils comes up.
* Tropers/{{PAL25E}} - Personal Android Lackey Type 25, Editor Model, supports the idea of trope names that are as witty as they are informative. After all, you can always use redirects and alt-titles if you're not satisfied.
* Tropers/{{JosephLeito}} Stick a FORK in the SPOONs, I'm done with them. Also, go CUPS!
* Tropers/{{Doryna}} Enjoys bad puns more than she should, but also wants to be able to find a trope when she needs it.
* @/{{Nightsky}}
* Tropers/{{Klon}} - Unique, yet sensible titles are what made this wiki great. Merely rational titles will let it wither and die, and I like this place too much for that. Do we have a theme song, by the way?
* Tropers/{{Homestar09_Mario08}} - Common sense trumps all name arguments.
* Tropers/{{Xamphynx}} I support... whatever you guys are oing. Good luck.
* Tropers/{{banjo2E}} - I tend to lean more towards cleverness than accessibility, but I agree that both are important to this wiki. If the titles for tropes hadn't been clever when I came here, I'd never have stayed.
* Tropers/{{guardyanangel}}- [[{{SPOON}} Forget]] [[{{KNIVES}} these]] [[{{FORK}} utensils.]] [[{{PLATTER}} Dish-]] and [[{{CUPS}} Drink-]]ware all the way!
* Tropers/{{LadyAmi}}- A major reason TV Tropes is so awesome is the clever names!
* Tropers/{{NorthernDruid}} - Hanging down on this side of the fence separating {{PLATTER}} and {{KNIVES}}.
* Tropers/{{TheStray}} - Proudly licking the PLATTER for cool names.
* Tropers/OriginalHobbit- I like it when clever names make sense and aren't too long. Less confusion=happy Tropers, and clever titles enhance our vocabulary
* Tropers/CleverPun - My ultimate goal is to see FunnyAneurysmMoment renamed. Let the fruitless quests continue!
* Tropers/{{Ladygem}}- can't we all just get along?
* Tropers/{{Brogaglas}}- We're not Encyclopedia Dramatica, but we're not TheOtherWiki either. Three cheers for common sense!
* Tropers/{{Vortor}}- Joining up here, although I tend towards lurking, and I might end up being slightly FoRK-y.
* Tropers/{{ThomasCastle}} - Best of both worlds seems like a good thing. Relevant to my interests, I suppose.
* Tropers/{{AOTKorby}} - Certainly prefers humor over bland ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin names, but there are definitely trope names that go past the realm of reason.
* Tropers/{{DamianMask}} - I was going to join {{KNIVES}} but I didn't because I thought, HEY isn't PLATTER so much better!
* Tropers/{{MayOfSpace}} - Only violent psychopath here. Don't turn around.
* Tropers/{{MegaRock35}} - Because a good Trope Title should be witty AND make sense
* Tropers/{{JHM}} - Peace, Prosperity, Puns! AddedAlliterativeAppeal for All!
* Tropers/{{Aryn}} - For so long as the threats of {{SPOON}} and FoRKS still loom over the fair wiki of TVTropes.
* Tropers/{{Ehye}} would not have her beloved TV Tropes turn into either TheOtherWiki nor a collection of mind-boggling titles.
* Tropers/{{Axelsonfire}} is joining your ranks. She loves the culture related titles that are fun and make sense.
* Tropers/{{Owfin}} was almost going to join {{FORKS}}, but after actually finding herself in agreement with the change from You Fail X Forever to X Goof, she decided to sit on this side of the fence. Consider yourself warned, {{SPOON}}. You may have done good this time, but if you unnecessarily rename another trope and turn it into something bland... you may find me joining the dark side. That said, I support PLATTER's mission and common sense! I also appreciate {{CUPS}}, because a great image in conjunction with a great title makes for a memorable trope.
* Tropers/{{Flioro}}
* Tropers/{{Arc9}} - The way I see it, the title needs to be memorable to even be remembered in the first place, but if it's not informative you'll only confuse it with other (similar) titles. So here's where my support goes.
* Tropers/{{HumanaUox}}: supporter of stable sense
* @/{{Jinjoman}} will join this organization. Names can be clever and creative as well as indicative of what the trope actually is.
* @/{{Tandra88}} likes this a lot! That's why I can't hardly remember most of the tropes names. They're so bland. Really, TV Tropes? And..OMGTHERESAPINAWESOME!!
* @/WeepingWillow - I'll join because I think that trope titles should be both creative ''and'' understandable.
* Tropers/SergeantLuke is proud to be a member of PLATTER! Seriously, conflict is never a good thing; we should all come to sensible decisions when it comes to trope names, and neither FORKS nor SPOON seems to support that.
* @/{{Xtifr}} - I wanted to join {{KNIVES}}, but the {{SPOON}}s and FoRKS made it impossible.
* @/SunnyV
* @/{{Cameoflage}} - I know I'm a card-carrying member of FoRKS (as of writing this) but I'm no great fan of obtuse titles. I just want the replacements to be fun, not boring.
* @/{{dragongirlhellfire}} - I'm almost tempted to count this as my political ideology. Certainly going to wear the pin!
* @/{{Madrugada}} -- I think each rename should be judged on its own merits. Simple enough.
* @/CommanderObvious - a good cause needs a good person: me
* @/RoshinDragoness - All these changes are ruining the site for me. This site is supposed to be ''humorous'' first and foremost, with comprehensibility a secondary concern, and by taking the funny out of the titles and jettisoning other bits of awesome (I refer to Troper Tales being hacked off into its own site), the site is losing its primary appeal.
* [[@/{{Pokenatic}} Pokénatic]] - Best of both worlds indeed. Although I don't like the title changes that has been sweeping the site for a while now and I did like the names of some of those tropes that you needed some info to understand without checking out the page, I believe that trope names should always be witty.
* @/PrimeOfPerfection - SPOON takes all the fun out of things while FORKS can lead to it being too confusing. It's not about taking sides, but finding a balance. Yin/Yang!
* Tropers/{{MSAdict}} is [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turning]] away from {{FoRKS}} in the name of balance. There's merit in all types of names. Long ones can be creative, while short ones can be to the point. I guess there's equality in everything.
* @/{{Blissey1}}- When I found they changed HotForTeacher, I was devastated. I thought "but it was a pop culture reference and descriptive at the same time! It was a perfect trope name! why change it?!" I'm so glad to know that there's a group of similarly minded people. PLATTER has my support!
* @/ShadowBender - All I wanted to say has been said. There is no need to state the obvious. HAIL {{PLATTER}}!
* {{Tropers/Gillespie}} is glad to be here :>
* {{Tropers/Trismegustis}}: Double-agenting with FoRKS. I tend to think they're right more often, but this philosophy is is much more encompassing.
* {{Tropers/KingNerd}}: I agree that names should be clever and accurate at the same time truly the best [[SecretOrganizationCravingIntelligentEnigmaticTropersYonder SOCIETY]] around.
* @/KyleJacobs: Recently defected from {{SPOON}} due to their lack of a sense of humor.
* {{Tropers/PinkHeartChainsaw}} This is an ideal for all names.
* @/{{razorrozar7}} is defecting from SPOON because he has finally come to his senses. Also in {{KNIVES}}.
* @/MotorRunner: @/ShadowBender and I are the same person.
* {{Tropers/Troliolio}} has recently defected from {{FoRKS}}.
* {{Tropers/McJeff}}: Double agent with {{FoRKS}} here. Some names just plain are unnecessarily obtuse or clunky (hi FlamingCobraSugarCellar), but most trope-referential names are still far better than the dull, clunky, boring-but-''allegedly''-practical ones the Spoons like.
* {{Tropers/dmboogie}}: Checked out the various editing "Factions". This one seemed to fit my preferences for trope titles. Voila.
* {{Tropers/Kardamon}} hereby pledges loyalty to the ideals of PLATTER and vows to uphold the honor (or lack thereof) of our glorious [[{{Yakuza}} organisation]] to the last drop of his HotBlood. My [[RoyalRapier rapier]] is yours, if you will have me...lords and ladies.
* Aranamor: I've come to my senses mostly, though I'm still primarily with {{FoRKS}}. If they aren't going to listen to us folks from the darth wiki, maybe they'll at least take our advice under a veneer of 'positivity and legitimacy'. You have my shillelagh at your disposal.
* {{Tropers/RosesSpindle}}: Yet another defector from {{FoRKS}} joining the ranks! While I have secretly agreed for a while that some of the name changes really were necessary, changing DroppedABridgetOnHim to UnsettlingGenderReveal was the final straw![[hottip:*: Seriously, the former evoked that one moment where it hits you like a ton of bricks that the cute girl you've been eying is really a boy, while the latter is just plain dull.]] Where's the pizazz? Where's the wit? Where's the fun?
* Tropers/{{/sjcodan}} I love me some funny names, but not all tropes need em. Long live the Platter.
