I think he's asking whether exampleless definition pages (like Kuudere) should be linked in subpages in trope lists. My personal view is that something should be added to the YMMV subpage only when there is a YMMV banner and added to the Trivia page only if there is a Trivia banner.
Call it "Russian Judging". I think people still know what that means.
Fact: the entire trope about a "lowballed" score comes out of figure skating, in the days when it had a 0 to 6 point scoring system with each score from each judge displayed individually. Western skaters could always expect the Eastern Bloc judges to knock a couple of tenths of a point off their scores (it was sometimes, but not always, reciprocal.)
