Do we need any sort of crowner for this?

Also, I can straight away do a massive examples cleanup, even if we don't decide on anything for the description, right?

[up]What options have to go into that crowner?
someone
I'm not really sure besides "add a list of things that might not necessarily mean this trope".

Errr, either you haven't made the crowner or something got messed up with the URL.

Oops. Should be at http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/crowner.php/PageAction/SharedUniverse

edit: Yep, that's it there.

So, any suggestions for additional options?

The other misuse that could be avoided by clarifying the description is simple examples of The Verse and Canon Welding turning up on Shared Universe, because people think of 'shared' as in 'shared between works' rather than 'shared between authors'. I might check the wicks to see if it's being used properly.

[up] Those can overlap, if different people are behind each work. Still counts as different authors, even if they're under the same company and whatnot.

I'm talking about simple examples of a single creators' works used as examples. I took a few off the page a while ago, see discussion.

I think the OP was reading this trope way too narrowly. That said, this is being misused for Cross Overs and such. I actually added the sort of notice mentioned in the crowner, trying to clean up this article a little. One bigger problem, I think, is trying to distinguish actual shared universes with ones put together by fans out of crossover appearances and Epileptic Trees, like the Tommy Westphal universe which is still listed now as an example.

[up] Well, I myself am not completely sure what does or doesn't count, but I do agree that this page is not for "everything that ever had a crossover" .

So, is it time to call this one yet?

Yes, it is. Please make the edit and holler for the thread lock.
someone
Someone's already put the notice. I'm gonna edit some examples. It needs to be made sure that non-examples don't get re-added.

edit:I've moved non-examples to the talk page for misuse.

Have the wicks also been cleaned up? If so, Holler and we'll lock this.
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.

I see 252 wicks here. Have any of them been cleaned?
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

I cleaned up the examples I pointed out as obviously wrong. Should I remove examples from what KJ Mackley mentioned to watch out for in this post as in, Spin Offs, Poorly Disguised Pilot and established franchises?

What's the status here?

Well, some of the most obvious non-examples (the ones where the universes don't really have anything to do with each other) have been removed.

Can somebody answer my question at post 42?

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

What would be the best way to fix the page?
