Duplicate Trope: Broken Base.Characters get usage counts

Apparently there's a Characters Sub Page of Broken Base, which is essentially the same as Base Breaker.

My question is... which one gets the cut and eventual redirect?
You have to get to the bottom of this, or else everything will be over before you come to terms to it.

Kill the Broken Base character sheet. Absolutely redundant.

I was going to point out that Base Breaker got an Example Sectionectomy, but it seems like the examples are back now. What happened?

Here's the thread that resulted in the sectionectomy. Upon further research, it appears that the examples were restored unilaterally by Blob Pink Dragon 123 on December 31st, 2011. Time for a trip to Ask The Tropers.

There was a call to lock this thread, but it doesn't look like anything got done. I'm still seeing a BrokenBase.Characters page.

The question is whether the character section should stay. Base Breaker got its Example Sectionectomy again, but is the Broken Base character sheet the same thing?

No examples means no examples, even character ones, so this can probably go to the Cut List.

And if someone does that, please note this thread on the discussion page.

Ok, this looks like Base Breaker version 2. Any objections to cutlisting?

Kill it.

Oh, and while we are on the topic, take a gander at Analysis.Broken Base

Quoting the entirety: I think a Broken Base is more manageable than a Unpleasable Fanbase, BUT i also think if left untreated the former can lead to the latter. I think this usually happens when creators/artists try to have their cake and eat it too. When you try to please everybody for the sake of Money, Dear Boy this is the consequence.

That isn't what Analysis pages are for. It reads like a 5th grader giving his personal opinion on the topic.

Understood, fellow cat person. Analysis pages aren't there for trope reviews.

Both pages were cut. Lock-hollering.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
