Needs Help (New Crowner 8/18/13): Stop Helping Me get usage counts

This hasn't been touched in a while. Can I just put the sandbox pages into YKTTW or are there some more things to do first?

I have an idea for the subjective video game version. "Yeah, I Get It". The Trope Namer is Egoraptor's "Sequelitis" series.

I'm not sure why a Your Mileage May Vary page is even needed. That should be firmly covered by The Scrappy and Scrappy Mechanic. I like to complain as much as the next person but isn't the wiki's mission statement to keep those kinds of pages to a minimum?
That's why he wants you to have the money. Not so you can buy 14 Cadillacs but so you can help build up the wastes

Because the crowners decided so. Also, I think you are stretching these tropes quite a bit.

The scrappy is a character audiences dislike. Not a trope to be stretched. Scrappy mechanic is a mechanic that players to do not like. Those are audience reactions.

"This so called help feature used through this character is annoying." is the same audience reaction as the scrappy and scrappy mechanic. The same one. More over it is a negative one and TV tropes is kind of a wiki for people who like things.

Now if I said, character tries to help and fails is the same as The Load or The Millstone, then I might be stretching because those are character tropes who don't necessarily have to try to be helpful or be a hindrance because of their helpfulness. Kyra might as well not have been there for a much help as she was to Gonzales in WWA but Gonzales never complained about Kyra's efforts to help nor was she an active hindrance (just useless) so there is a potential niche for this proposed Stop Helping Me! trope page to only have in story examples. Jillian "singing" Melina's praises or tagging in to accidentally hit Melina with a 450 splash off the top rope to the back of her neck? That's more like help that either is not wanted it is an active hindrance. Still different than a Millstone, as someone could choose to be one of sheer unwillingness to help.

For the audience reactions? Not so much. Democracy's just fine and all but crowners have been overturned, including some I have voted on, before. Does anyone have an argument that for what distinct purpose the separate audience reaction page would serve in the face of two others and policy of discouraging complaining pages? Please, shoo me away with reasons but I think there should be reasons.

Bumping; it looks like an action we can take.

I think we can launch the Annoying Video Game Helper page. Just do a little cleanup after that and we're good!
Please help out our The History Of Video Games page.
We can do it now. I've finally finished sorting everything.
 
So how do we rename the trope?

For the video game helper thing, just copy the contents of Sandbox.Annoying Video Game Helper to Annoying Video Game Helper...

AFTER cleaning up the Sandbox page of all the other problems it has, like Natter and Example Indentation. tongue
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Alternative Titles: Stop Helping Me Subjective

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
