[[caption-width-right:249:Not a sliding scale...but it's a scale. [[OverlyLongGag Let's give this picture 3 points out of 5 for accuracy.]]]]
Welcome to the Sliding Scale Wiki!

''[-Two out of five for the opening statement. Traditional, inviting.-]''

Inspired by [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=vjj8hr0syrb9k1o89fxv2kyl this forum game]], this is the wiki where we rank trope extremity on arbitrary number scales.

''[-One out of five for the above article writeup. Too short, not clever.-]''

For example:

Wiki/TVTropes Rating - How much this site has affected you.
* 5 - [[SugarWiki/TvTropesWillEnhanceYourLife My life has improved greatly]] as a result of this site.
* 4 - TropesAreNotBad; this site has had a positive effect.
* 3 - [[SoOkayItsAverage A neutral effect, or no effect at all.]]
* 2 - TropesAreNotGood; a negative effect overall.
* 1 - [[TvTropesWillRuinYourLife My life is ruined!]]

It doesn't have to be this type of scale, of course. It can be any number system you want to use. Base ten, anyone?

If you want our tropes with sliding scales, see SortingAlgorithmOfTropes.
