After a very long query about Friends of Really Kool Sobriquet
in Ask The Tropers
, it appears there is an issue with this page.
Namely, there is a ton of complaining, and outright hostility in some parts. Case in point:
The fun names were the best part about TV Tropes!!! I've been lurking around this wiki since 2007 and this site has gone downhill fast in the past couple of years. Fast Eddie is a tyrannical dictator, the mods all have power complexes, any and all gushing is promptly squashed (WTF? Isn't this supposed to be a place where we celebrate what we love?), and the best part of the wiki is being systematically destroyed. I CANNOT TAKE MUCH MORE OF THIS.
These things edge right into personal attacks territory, something which is really uncalled for, especially in a Just for Fun
page. As I understand, all these pages were made as a light-hearted humor attempt by tropers and our habit of considering names Serious Business
. Whining, personal attacks and hostility are the exact opposite of what these pages are supposed to be.
In my mind, all cutlery should be treated the same way, without any nastiness, whether in Darth or elsewhere.
