Do we have a jobs index? Let's see Employed Index, Job Index maybe?

Ah, I Need an Index by Monday. That should probably have some redirects.

[up] That's only for office jobs. Not jobs in general.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Isn't Sequential Artist an office job, I'll go break Job Index though. We should probably make a Job Index.

No, it's not an office job. It's more of a studio job.

It's super effective.
Three Kingdoms. It SOUNDS animated (so would probably go under Eastern Animation), but I can't tell either way from the description.

[up] According to IMDB and Wikipedia, it seems to be a live-action historical drama adaptation of a novel.

[up][up] We need a Romance of the Three Kingdoms Index with the massive amount of titles based on it gd.... As well as the Sangoku Period Of Japan.

EDIT:[[quoteblock]]Only, this time, the point of view of the story focuses mainly on Cao Cao and how he pursues his ambitions after betraying the bloodthirsty tyrant Dong Zhuo and eventually becoming the ruler of Wu, one of the titular Three Kingdoms.[[quoteblock]]

WTF.... that's Wei GD it.

Io vs Jupiter
General indexing question: should pages go on the most specific index available, or any that apply? For example, Guns and Gunplay Tropes and I Like Swords are both subindexes of Weapons and Wielding Tropes. BFG is on both Weapons and Wielding Tropes and Guns and Gunplay Tropes, while BFS is on I Like Swords but not Weapons and Wielding Tropes. Which is preferred?

I generally put it on all that apply.

How To Cheat Death is unindexed, where should it go?
Love extends the boundaries of what people can accept, but don't depend on it.

It reads sort of like one of the So You Want To Do X pages, so I'd put it there for starters.

It is more like Just for Fun, with the Overlord lists.
Goal: Clear, Concise and Witty
Fighting the Lancer is unindexed.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

Hey, guys, what should I put Tribal Face Paint under?
Cosine!
Endangered Species needs an index.
?
 92 Deboss, Sat, 4th Jun '11 10:13:34 AM from Awesomeville Texas

Tribal Face Paint should probably go with the Appearance Tropes (I'm not sure that's it's names, but it's definitely an index).

Ah, it's Personal Appearance Tropes.

Endangered Species can go under Animal Tropes.

Started an Occupation Tropes YKTTW to cover Sequential Artist and other such situations. Input is appreciated!

So, while reading the Did Not Do the Research I'm continuously reminded of a pet peeve of mine, that American's think America = the World. I don't mean We All Live in America in which a foreign country is portrayed incorrectly with the assumption that it's like America but that Americans have a habit of thinking what's #1 in the US is obviously #1 in the world.

Most notably the US is no longer the #1 film producer even though if you poll people in the US the majority of the population will think it is.

What grates my gears is records held by the Simpsons. I've seen it listed in Entertainment Weekly for god's sake as both the longest running animated show in the world and the longest running sitcom in the world when both records are held by Sazae-san. I saw the same thing in an episode of Fairly Odd Parents where Timmy is stuck inside the TV set and must battle his way through various TV shows. When he gets to a parody of the Simpsons he says the same thing "hey look, it's the show that's the longest running animated show in the world!"

It doesn't help that when you google "longest running animated series" google defaults to The Simpsons (although to be fair Wikipedia DOES say longest running animated series in America).

I would like to place them somewhere in a "Did Not Do the Research" but in all the subtropes I can't think of where it belongs. There doesn't seem to be an America is the World option.

What you want is YKTTW, not this thread. And I recommend against this because it will just be cut as a Complaining page. Also see Eagleland.
Neoclassicism, AKA the Tinkerbell school of economics.
So wait, pointing out that Fairly Odd Parents Did Not Do the Research when they incorrectly assumed Simpsons is the #1 Television show in the world or that Entertainment Weekly Did Not Do the Research either or that even Google seems to be guilty of it is not in fact Did Not Do the Research but just me complaining? How does that work?

Complaining leads to Natter, Natter leads to Rage, Rage leads to bans.

Put that in the editing tips.
