I dunno, is Deranged Animation subjective? I don't really see how anyone can make a case for a lot of the examples not being deranged...
Oh brother, not that!

The description basically says What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? Up to Eleven.
Video Game Census. Please contribute.

[up][up] That's just plain incorrect. What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? is about the actual audience speculation that a creator used drugs. Though that page still needs an audience reaction banner, it is not subjective, and it can be tuned up to eleven.

Cosmic Deadline, if it's not already in this thread. See this thread for the reasoning.

Deus ex Machina

According to the first sentence, it is "A common form of Ass Pull or Writer Cop Out..."

Both of these are YMMVs

Diagonalizing The Matrix
Why is Ass Pull a YMMV?

I mean, the title & description are harsh, but basically it boils down to "critical development happens without foreshadowing". This isn't any more open to dispute than the average "objective" trope.

Epileptic Trees. Its a fandom reaction trope.

YMMV:

edit:

Also, Ensemble Darkhorse

and Rooting for the Empire appears to be entirely an Audience Reaction Trope.

edited 21st Nov '10 5:38:06 AM by Tyoria

Esoteric Happy Ending states pretty clearly that it's an audience reaction trope.

edit: as does Why Would Anyone Take Him Back?.

OTP. i've seen it used in a work page at least once, when that should really be taken to TroperTales.One True Pairing.

also, Portmanteau Couple Name and Fan Nickname should get fan-speak banners. they're both in the Fan-Speak index but don't have the banner.

Why is Parody Sue listed as fan-speak page. Of all sue tropes this is the most concrete one.

[up]It's also kind of contradictory when the banner says "No examples, please." and the page has some 20 folders with examples. So which one is it?

There was also talk of making a new Trivia banner for tropes that are to be moved to that section. Should we list those here as well?

Fetish Fuel needs some sort of clarification. I'm assuming since there is no main page, only troper tales, that it doesn't go anywhere on the wiki? Or am I wrong, and it can go on YMMV?

Yeah, we're pretty much not interested in Fetish Fuel outside of Tales; it is way too small-group a focus. I mean, most of the stuff could be just something one guy finds hot. Anyway, listening to some guy drool on about his fetish is just boring or annoying for people who don't share the kink. Which is going to be most readers.

Full respect, of course, for people to be as kinked as they want to be. Go Team Kink!

Okay, I'll put something to that effect at the top of the Fetish Fuel page, if that's okay with you.

EDIT: How's that?

Worth a shot. Seems like one of the pages you can't say anything about that won't raise a ruckus with at least some people, but it probably needs saying, if it can be done without dissing anybody.

Why does everything with "Sue" in the title seem to have the fan-speak banner now? Can someone fix that?

Page Action: YMMV Banner 4

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?
