Needs Help: Gambit Index get usage counts

Can we, similar to the death or ending indexes, make a rule for this index that all tropes (minus the "planners" subindex) must have all spoiler code unmarked? It's kind of hard to write an example without delving into spoilers, so I was told that I should go here by someone on ATT.

No, the other one.
Those aren't tropes that are spoilers by default, or at least entirely, so I don't think it's a good idea.

Tag fixed. I am personally neutral on this; unlike Death Tropes, not everything here is spoiler.

Also requested thread move, because this isn't about repairing any page but about trope classification (here: whether this is a spoiler trope), and the latter goes into Trope Talk at least at the beginning.

The vast majority of these tropes can't have an example written without spoilers. I am not against spoilers, but for some of the examples on those pages, only one or two words are not in spoiler code.

Am I missing something? There are no examples on this page. It's an index.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

[up]It's about the trope pages on the index.

The thing is, not everything is a spoiler, and if people see it that way, they're going to be accidentally spoiled when they ignore the warning. Death Tropes and Ending Tropes have a natural correlation to spoilers, so people are more wary about them.

Also, "some examples are almost entirely in spoiler code" isn't what I'd say qualifies as a reason to remove all spoiler code. That there are some spoilers in most examples indicate to me that it's possible to write a great deal without spoiling anything.

This isn't universal to the index. Some tropes on it have very little spoiler text at all.

If a trope on the list really is Spoilered Rotten to the point of looking like Swiss cheese, then bring up a case for de-spoilering that trope.

Hey, I'm new here and I don't know how to make a tearjerker page for Jessie series. Any ideas?

Go to Jessie, then hit the "edit button". Before that, though, take time to read through Administrivia and Welcome to TV Tropes - something tells me you'll need it.

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