Except that's not the definition of What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?. The very first paragraph says that it's when adults of a fanbase are offended when the work is called "just for kids". From there, it was found that the whole What Do You Mean, It's Not an Index? is suffering from an ambiguous name.

There is a problem here, and it's not just the definition.

How about we replace the page with the following:

"What Do Youmean Its For Kids may refer to any of several things. If you see a link to here on another page, please remove it or change it to one of the following:

So as long as it's spelled correctly, it sounds fine.

I think the only thing to do is fix up the description to match the misuse. I do not see how the correct definition is tropeworthy, being Fandom Berserk Button.

Maybe come back on a rename, but I think the rename and split are hanging up a simple action.

We can't fix the definition to match the misuse because it is misused for various different things.

We have YKTT Wd a trope for the core concept: Mature Childrens Work. That draft has had problems and may or may not ever launch. If it does, we can add that to the disambiguation list.

Also, Fandom Berserk Button has little to do with the correct definition. The correct definition can be a simple disagreement after all.

Almost every time I have seen the trope used as "show that is mature enough to be targeted at adults is a kids show, " which is what Mature Childrens Work seems to describe.

Define "mature enough", plus that sounds like What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?..

Scenes, themes, and other aspects that indicate a show would be made for adults if not for the fact that it is not. What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids? is about an adult show that people show kids thinking it is appropriate for them.

Yeah, that's what people tried to get going on Mature Childrens Work. And you can keep trying to get that going. But there's a good chance tht it will never succeed, because there have been good arguments against having that page at all.

Assuming that we'll add Mature Childrens Work to the disambiguation page if it ever launches, is there anything else that the disambiguation page now needs?

Actually, it's more just a matter of efforts petered off and kinda died.

Can't we just change the name of this one? It just seems to me that people are getting confused.

To many imbounds and such to do something that drastic.

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