Yes, I understand that just fine, but anyone who is casually browsing will look at and skip to the next page. With Elemental Powers I have done that several times. Plus, a Super Trope should list its subtropes, not explain them.
The longwided explanation seems to be a holdover from a past era where supertropes were expected to explain their subtropes clearly, though probably not to the extent taken by whoever wrote Elemental Powers' description. Plus, besides the main four elements, only a handful of the other elements had a designated subtrope of their own; most of them are quite new, compared to the main four.
The Fair Folk has a very long description that pulls in more historical context and examples above the example line than any other page I've seen. Whilst that's contributed to the 2,266 inbounds, I think some should be moved to Analysis/. A sandbox of the old and new pages is here, and will be swapped in at some point if no feedback is given.
Battle in the Rain: Starts off good, and all of a sudden I get a paragraph on the effect of rain on Real Life military battles. Who cares?
Permission to cut that whole Real Life section of the description? It isn't even descent Analysis material because it is entirely unrelated to the fictional use trope, which appears to be using the weather to set the mood for a battle.
Floating Head Syndrome kinda suffers from a serious case of "This trope is bad and people who use it are evil" (What happened to Tropes Are Not Bad?)
Seriously, with gems like "Generally felt to be a lazy approach (...)" (Okay, by who?)
Agreed. If it's a derogatory term (as the first sentence claims), then it should probably be an example-free fanspeak page. If it is actually (as I suspect), simply a term for a certain style of cover art, then the description should be neutral.
I've never heard the term outside of this wiki, and frankly have no problem with the style in general, so I'd support a neutral rewrite.
I think I brought this up before, but no one did anything with it.
I wrote the description for Animalistic Abomination, but I feel like it's somewhat lacking, especially compared to the two other Abominationtropes.
Unfortunately, I don't see any way I can improve on it. What about you guys?
So can you tell me what exactly does freedom mean, if I'm not free to be as twisted as I wanna be?
