* AnArmAndALeg (My first trope to 1000 wicks, I feel so proud.)



* RepairDontRespond

* RepairDontRespondRepairDontRespond (You know you hit a good name for a concept when multiple other pages get folded into it and you regularly come across other people using it. One of the ideas I'm most proud of.)

* Spoilers should be reduced as much as possible. I keep them on so that I can be aware of them, though I always look underneath. Founder of TropersOpposedToNegligentAndGratuitousSpoilers to counter their mis- and overuse.
* I lean heavily towards SPOON, but decline to commit to any naming convention, as each have their pros, cons, and exceptions.

* I try to avoid the forums for multiple reasons, a lot of them having to do with my faith in humanity. Unfortunately, much of the community of the site that is active there is polarized and cliqueish. For instance, TropeRepairShop people pounce on anyone from outside interested in making the case for a trope to be kept, responding with rudeness and sarcasm, then censure anyone who responds in kind because they aren't part of the group. In general on the forums, if you aren't a name they recognize prepare to encounter a 'not made here' attitude that is really negatively affecting the site. So I stick to editing formatting and the occasional new trope or work page and leave larger issues alone.
* Edit reasons are generally unnecessary since edits seem to follow a modified form of SturgeonsLaw; 90% of changes are simply not going to be noticed or disputed in any way. In addition, not putting an edit reason gives less cause for dispute; the old 'if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all' comes to mind. I still do it sometimes on the first edit, but don't get angry if that isn't the case. And don't be upset if I don't PM you before making a modification, I absolutely never use that first thing.

* Censorship and gratuitous vulgarity are both uncalled for. In general I let work derived vulgarity stand but ease user created vulgarity. I consider the gutting of works and tropes considered to be too sexual to be a travesty against wisdom and maturity; we're all adults or will be in a few years, and pretending things don't exist by erasing them or disallowing them for inherently amorphous values that shift over time is a tragedy of censorship.
