Engaging SarcasmMode.

Tropers realize something either @/{{drewski}}, @/{{itcdr}} or the [[Administrivia/KnowTheStaff rest of the staff]] does not, that robust [[Wiki/TVTropes 12-year-old websites]], while seemingly healthy, are in actuality as fragile as two bricks tied together with tissue paper. One mistake, one bad mis-step will cause the entire thing to shatter and fall apart; and TV Tropes would be ruined forever. Much like this analogy.

Fortunately, there ''is'' hope. The Members of TV Tropes has resolved to remain ''ever vigilant'' against something that could Ruin TV Tropes Forever, and call out a warning if they see something that could potentially do so.

Some TV Tropes conservationists suggest a more extreme approach, that TV Tropes should [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks abandon all attempts at re-invention]] and instead [[PanderingToTheBase cater exclusively to the old-school Tropers]]. Though attractive, this approach may prove impractical as a long-term solution. %%any ideas for the long term solution link?

Ruined FOREVER remains a serious threat to TV Tropes now and in the foreseeable future, though it's possible a proposed initiative requiring all Tropers to purchase an annual [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon_offset bandwidth offset]] could ensure our fragile site's existence through the mid-21st century.
