Not Tropeworthy: Spaghetti Sus get usage counts

There's so many things wrong here, I'm not really sure where to start.

  1. Didn't go through TRS. The description is somewhat poorly written. There are no examples, 3 wicks, and the only index is Tropes Needing Examples.
  2. If it only appears in Youtube Poop, it's not a trope. It's just a Running Gag.
  3. If it doesn't only appear in Youtube Poop, is it common enough to trope?
  4. Can this not be covered by Memetic Mutation?

I personally think it should be cut, but maybe there's a germ of something we can run through YKTTW.

Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

The only tropeworthy bit in this seems to be the editing trick. I haven't seen that trick used anywhere, though - couldn't we just put this on the Youtube Poop page somewhere?

Like common editing tricks seen in this genre?

Citing the page:

Other variations/sub-fads include, but are in no way limited to: [...]
  • Spaghetti Sus. [short explanation]

Can we just move it here?

Sorry. Yeah. If this is done only in YouTube Poop, it should be cut.

So, cut and leave the mention on Youtube Poop page?

I honestly think YouTube Poop should be cut from The Internet completely.
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.

[up] Sadly, this is not Internet Repair Shop.

Oh well, I think we have consensus. I'll move the example over to the page now; if nobody objects, I'll cutlist the trope.

Which discussion page do you mean? The one for Spaghetti Sus, or the one for Youtube Poop? I left a comment at the latter page, referencing this thread.

Page was cut. Requesting lock.

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