-salute- yes, ma'am!

(last OT note, i swear: i'm going to start deleting all instances of Character Alignment used for rounded characters as i find them, then. if that's okay).

Flamebait ones: Fan Dumb, and Internet Backdraft

YMMW ones: Fan Myopia, all of the subpages for What an Idiot, and the remaining It Sucks tropes that don't have a YMMW one.

Why are the Sue tropes missing the banner?

Because it hasn't been added to them yet. That's why they're listed here.
...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
Well, we did agree they were subjective a while back.

This is not a thread to discuss whether they should have banners. This is a thread to list them so that when Fast Eddie has time to add banners he can find a list all in one place.
...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
Yup, that's why I posted the consensus.

Maybe this should go in the trope repair shop. People could start individual threads for tagging a trope/category of tropes as YMMV. If/when consensus is reached they'd get added to the thread for Eddie, which could be stickied or something.

You can already make those threads, but they aren't trope repair. They're wiki structure. And the Mary Sue tropes are already listed.
...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
Thanks.

I see the Awesomeness.
Maybe the first post should have a list of tropes/indexes already listed. If this thread gets really long, it would start accruing duplicates.

^ there's a list of pages that have the banners here. maybe we could just add that link to the OP.

Those first 3 should not be YMMV IMO its all about additional outside context.

The problem is, some people are very sensitive to it and see it everywhere, (i.e. every character that Heath Ledger played that died is Harsher in Hindsight or a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment) while others, like myself, won't see the correlation.

And Hilarious in Hindsight seems to be Gushing About Coincidences You Like anyway.

Then the examples need to be tightened.

"Every character that Heath Ledger played that died is Harsher in Hindsight" doesn't fit... now if he played someone who was manic depressive, Overdosed on something or suicide (YMMV there) then its worthy of the page.

There's really no way of putting an objective cap on what should or shouldn't count. Examples of Ledger playing suicidals is more specific, but how specific does any given example have to be?

It's my understanding we're moving all Audience Reaction Tropes to YMMV, which is what these are.

Sliding Scale of Broad Appeal vs. Specific Appeal

Found it while browsing, says "HIGHLY SUBJECTIVE" right at the top.

The description in Kick the Son of a Bitch says that it's subjective, but it lacks the banner.

Maybe Idiot Plot?

[up] Nah, that's more about how the characters have to act. It's like a detective mystery where the clues are obvious, but to have the story last longer, nobody can find them, even though logically a normal person would. Something like that.

Page Action: YMMV Banner 4
17th Aug '14 8:08:24 AM
What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
YMMV is for items that are reactions of the audience to works and tropes that need a significant judgment call to tell whether they exist objectively or not.

Should these items become members of YMMV?
