A popular type of Administrivia/TheSameButMoreSpecific.

Essentially, this is when a trope can be summed up as "the same as Article X, but pumped UpToEleven". While the temptation to start these sort of articles is evidently irresistible -- hardly a day goes by that one doesn't show up in YKTTW -- they are almost always a bad idea for a number of reasons, not the least of which is [[Administrivia/LumperVsSplitter where to draw the dividing line]] between "Trope X" and "Trope [[XtremeKoolLetterz Xtreme]]".

A common variant is when someone wants to write pages like "Trope X, but done well" or "Trope X, but done poorly". Remember that Tropes are [[TropesAreTools Neither Good Nor Bad]] -- tropes are value-neutral, and whether they come across as positive or negative depends on how an individual work uses them. Besides, attempting to split tropes by their execution can be [[FanMyopia extremely subjective]], since fans of a given work will argue that it belongs in the "good" pile while detractors constantly move it back into the "bad" pile. [[EditWar This continues]], probably interminably.

Remember, Administrivia/TropesAreFlexible. There's enough untapped content to go around already -- there's really no point in rehashing what we've already got. Sometimes you might think there is a [[SubTrope quantitative difference]] in a new trope, but if the examples are mostly the same as the earlier trope, then you're basically just duplicating the one that already exists.

Now if the difference actually ''is clear'', the result may be a SubTrope, SuperTrope, or SisterTrope of another.

If you think your extreme trope has the distinction worthy of a SubTrope, please [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/ykttw.php?interval=1 check with the other Tropers first]] and to get opinions; if ''other people'' agree that the SubTrope label applies, it probably does; likewise, if they're all calling it Administrivia/TheSameButMore, they're probably right.
