Page Action: Everythings Better With X
What would be the best way to fix the page?
The Everythings Better With X
family aims to document random, gratuitous elements (e.g. monkeys) that works throw in for instant entertainment. Unfortunately, editors use its snowclones for listing:
- Inclusions of various elements, gratuitous and non-gratuitous, regardless of any relation to a trope. (e.g. Everythings Better With Kangaroos lists various kangaroo characters without trying to find a trope.)
- Inclusions of elements that follow storytelling conventions. (e.g. Everythings Messier With Pigs lists messy pigs.)
The former is bad because its pages aren't tropes. The latter is bad because people mistake it for the former, or for "gratuitous and random."
First, let's fix the latter cases. This involves renaming the relevant tropes to break from the Everythings Better With X
family. We have done this successfully with some tropes already. (e.g. Everythings Wetter With Otters
yielded the trope Playful Otters
For each of the following pages, vote to rename if you think it covers a specific concept and will do so more clearly with the new name. Vote against renaming if the new name does not cover the page's content or is otherwise a poor name. The page's trope worthiness should not factor into whether to change its name. (e.g. "Cute Kittens
" may be PSOC.) We will cut inappropriate pages later. First, let us clarify their content.
