Welcome to the Trope Repair Shop: get usage counts
Cutmaster-sanWelcome to the TRS. Despite the name, this is also the place to repair works pages if they have significant problems. Also, keep in mind that the forum rules apply here just as much as anywhere else. Keep it civil, please.
Moderated Thread CreationAs with some other subforums, thread creation here is moderated. We approve new topics on the basis of quality, with an eye to keeping the total number of threads manageable. If we don't approve your topic right away, consider helping advance some that are already in progress. Threads marked with a gold medal have a crowner hooked to them that you can vote on. We encourage voting, even if you don't have anything to contribute to the conversation — but please make sure to read what's being voted on first! Threads marked with a clock have been inactive or failed to reach a conclusion for long enough that we've given them a final deadline. If movement doesn't occur before the clock expires, the thread may be closed. Threads marked with an orange asterisk have already reached a conclusion and will be closed as soon as someone finishes up the work of making whatever change was decided upon.
When to create a Trope Repair Shop thread:First off, read What Goes Where In The Forums and the Projects Directory for topics that have their own threads. Also look up old topics and the renaming guidelines – the latter especially when you are arguing for a rename. Please take time to read these, it can avoid embarrassing errors and complaints later on. To wit, these are the usual reasons to make a thread here, each tagged with its own TRS tag (we only allow preselected names in order to force people to state the problem and avoid overly-dramatic titles):
Please do not make Trope Repair Shop threads for the following:
How to make a Trope Repair Shop topicSo, when you have decided that the issue needs Trope Repair Shop attention, make a thread, state your case in the OP and add the page’s title as a link to the page, in CamelCase to the relevant box in the createconversation function.
General behaviour (of everyone)Naturally, the standard rules apply here as well. Remember, the topic is about the wiki, so you should always explain how your proposal benefits the wiki and/or page proper, ideally providing data in favour of your stance. It isn’t about policy – keep policy discussions to Wiki Talk.
Record-keepingEven before thread completion, a neutral summary for new incoming people in the OP is recommended but not required. When a rename is successful, put the reasons on Renamed Tropes and Renamed Tropes. In all repairs, please add links to the thread to the discussion pages of the involved tropes.
Making a TRS Thread About a Broken PageBefore posting, make sure to read how to fix a trope. If you're considering a trope rename, read Everything You Wanted to Know About Changing Names. Please don't make a thread about or derail a thread to be about the content on this page. If you want to discuss policy, we have a thread for that. If a rename does go through, make sure to post to the Renamed Tropes thread and add to the Renamed Tropes list. If a rename, transplant, merge, or split goes through, be sure to link the TRS thread on the relevant discussion page(s) and include a link to the YKTTW archive, if available, on the discussion page for the appropriate trope(s).
Finding a TRS ThreadBefore looking for a TRS thread, be sure to read up on how to find old topics.

I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
