    I presume the bit about Permanent Red Link Club is a joke. Also, why have you italicized the description?

    Other than that, good idea.

    Tree Cover, Beneath Notice. If we're doing unstealthy tropes too, add Highly Visible Ninja.

    ^ I don't this these tropes are really about stealth. Fog Of War is about staying hidden, I give you that, but it's more like the game is hiding all players from each other, rather than one player deliberately concealing their actions.

    @Catbert: I italicized the description because that's what many indexes on the wiki do that. I thought it was kind of a convention. As for the Permanent Red Link Club, I do intend to ask the admins that--the joke being that the page exists but cannot be linked to, thus being a Self Demonstrating Article. I also imagine a laconic going something like this:
    Tropes about remaining hidden.
    Return to the unabridged version HERE... wait, where did it go??

    ^There is no rule saying index descriptions should be in italics. I think what you have seen is nonstandard use that some folks got the wrong idea in their head. Sorta like how you see some pages that have the explantion of a trope example in parentheses rather than after a colon.

    As for the red link thing, I don't think they would do that. Permanent Red Link Club is an extreme last ditch method to prevent abuse. Making it difficult to use and find an index would defeat the whole point of an index, namely making things in the wiki easier to find and use.

    ^ Well, it's a stealth index, so it should be hard to find, no? :D

    No, it should not be hard to find. Nothing on this wiki should be hard to find, and the admins aren't going to go through the extra trouble of coding things up so that they are hard to find.

    I don't think you are getting the concept that things being self demonstrating to the point that the supposed "wit" interferes with clarity and usability isn't accepted on this wiki.

    ^ Oh well, have it your way, killjoy. At least give me some tropes to add to the list, so arguing won't remain your sole contribution to this YKTTW.

    Bumping for more tropes or hats.
