Would like "In-Universe Examples Only" to have a banner:

I have a ykttw for when pages are to only have wicks and examples that are In-Universe. This is because those are supposed to be objective tropes, and a lot of tropers treat those tropes as if they are ymmv.

So I was wondering if after launching (barring mod or admin objections) it could eventually have a banner similar to those for YMMV and Trivia.

EDIT: Launched it. Page is In-Universe Examples Only.

I'm on the internet. My arguments are invalid.
It can only ever apply to a trope, not a work, so it's never going to be listed on a YMMV or Trivia subpage.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

[up]In case I wasn't clear, I meant a banner to appear on the pages, not listing the tropes on those. Something that appears in a wide box above the description, that says something like "Please don't list this on any page unless the trope is mentioned In-Universe."

Now I launched the trope. Listing it in the OP.

Seeing if anyone is still interested, as there is some confusion in whether such tropes also count as ymmv.

No, they are not YMMV automatically. We do not allow Real Life examples on a number of very concrete tropes because Reak Kife is harder to judge than fiction,
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

So if I follow right... you want to replace "only list in-universe examples" and the like in trope descriptions with an "In-Universe Only" banner that's more noticeable. Is that correct?

That's what it looks like, alright. You know, like the YMMV or Audience Reaction banner.

[up][up], [up] Yeah, pretty much that.

I'm pretty sure the answer's going to be no. Eddie just created a new hidden tag for No Real Life Examples, Please! tropes, and we're supposed to use that and remove any text to that effect. The tag causes a big, bold warning to show up when you edit the trope, but this way, people who are merely reading the trope don't have to worry about or be confused by the issue.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

That's ... actually an interesting alternative.

That code has actually been in place for a few months, but I personally have only recently started editing pages to include it, and only as I find them. You guys can help out with this - if you see a page with a NRLEP statement on it, please remove it and put [[noreallife]] in its place; that will set the edit screen to show the notice in the tips toolbox.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
