Pages that need the YMMV banner:

But are they really YMMV? It's just works being widely considered to be the wrong demographic like Animation Age Ghetto, more of an honest mistake than a subjective perception. What Do You Mean, It's Not For Kids? even ends with "This is not a YMMV, keep personal opinions out!" and I think I kind of agree.

Agreed on the above. The trope occurs every day when parents take their five year olds to see films like The Dark Knight and then complain about the violence. Or the classic example with Urotsukidoji showing up in the cartoon section of video rental stores.
Ironically, the pursuit of the definition of happiness does not appear to be a happiness-maximizing behavior.

Audience reactions that occur objectively are still audience reactions; they don't go on the main page because they're not contained within the work itself. That's the policy, right?

Rhymes with "Protracted."

Er, maybe? The context of a work's reception is certainly relevant to it, but I've made the exact same argument in favor of moving other tropes to YMMV. I suppose the concern is less one for whether it's factually an audience reaction trope and more for whether it causes any problems when added to a work page. "If it ain't broke, " and all.

They are basically An Adult Work That Appears Childish On The Surface and vice versa.

This can be caused by using specific devices in the story, e.g. lots of colors, superheroes, talking animals, to intentionally mix certain themes.

I was under the impression you're supposed to put non-subjective audience reactions in Trivia.

Rooting for the Empire should have a YMMV banner.

Has returned.
Found this page at last.

Why does an index page with no examples need a banner exactly?

Complaining about Shows You Don't Watch already says it's fan-speak but is missing the banner for some reason.

Maybe you can remove that last line then, since it's kind of redundant now, especially with the page locked. And the Darth Wiki links.

Fetish Retardant needs a banner.

Mr. Fanservice needs a subjective banner. We came to this conclusion at the trope repair shop because fanservice is subjective.

I don't think fanservice itself is subjective or at least I haven't seen people on the wiki get into arguments about it before.

I put the subjective tag on Fetish Retardant. The Mr. Fanservice discussion doesn't seem to be settled to judge from reading it.

Also deleted the extraneous text on Complaining.

Laughing it up
I guess this is kind of iffy, but does Accentuate the Negative need a "Subjective" banner?

I know that there are some in universe examples on the page, but most (especially the ones regarding more modern media) seem to be examples of people doing this.

Or should this trope maybe be split on the page to make a clear distinction between "In Universe" examples and "People Specialised In Complaining About Stuff".
Everything can be found on the Internet; Except common sense.
What happened to the banner on Anvilicious?

Why hello there!
After reading through it, I'm wondering if Freud Was Right needs a banner. A few of the examples purposefully utilize the trope  *, it would seem, but a lot of the examples seem to simply be "X has a big sword, ergo compensating" or "X looks like a penis".
So, naturalists observe, a flea has smaller fleas that on him prey; and these have smaller still to bite ’em; and so proceed ad infinitum.

Have we ever had Freud Was Right into TRS to clarify what it's about? Is it about actual sexual subtext in works or is it about Fanwanked subtext? The Canonical List of Subtle Trope Distinctions gives it as the reason why sexual subtext exists, which implies that it's a Super Trope and not supposed to be used in examples.

Not sure if this was skipped but Rooting for the Empire is still in need of a banner

Also, I'm a little unsure but Hollywood Pudgy may need a need a banner (and a lot cutting in the trope description)

Took care of Rooting for the Empire. Hollywood Pudgy might need a TRS topic.

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?
