Shipper on Deck appears to be an objective trope caught up in the YMMV-ifying of all Shipping tropes.
... Not sure if this is the right thread for pages that have banners and don't need them, but there you go.
Minionshipping*: May be a case of a bad title. I'm under the impression that "shipping" is literally defined as the fandom imagining relationships between characters whether they exist or not. It's objective as written, though.
Official Couple: Didn't we have some rather rampant debates over this recently? I'm going to leave it be for now pending more discussion. I think the problem was it being [over]used as a Take That to shippers.
Slash Fic*: Needs a TRS topic to do an Example Sectionectomy, or to be redefined as a genre index. I changed the banner to Fanspeak but that will cause some problems with the example list.
Super Couple: I see the problem with the description but as it stands it's arguably objective.
Token Shipping*: Seems like Beta Couple with the Token Minority. Dunno, something about it rubs me the wrong way. Anyway, it has an incorrect title since it's not a shipping trope, it's about official hookups.
* Marks tropes that I think may need further work in TRS.
Edit: Stickifying this, since it's an ongoing maintenance topic.

What would be the best way to fix the page?
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?
Note: Audience Reactions need to be subjective, emotional responses and things that are likely to cause arguments and disagreements. Merely being outside a work or inside an audience don't make things YMMV

Discredited Trope: The page makes claims about how tropes are perceived by audiences, which may or may not be accurate depending on which audience you are talking about and exactly how the trope is used.
Intended Audience Reaction
This starts with "The reaction from the audience we suspect the author intended. We can't really know whether it was intended. It may have been, or it may have been that the author was aiming for something completely different and just missed." Beyond this, if i am remembering well, Fast Eddie himself put this in ymmv one time.
I think this should be in YMMV because this is way too opinionated. What one might consider good animation might be considered bad animation by another person. The Simpsons is a good example. Although most people think that Season 2 is better animated than Season 1, some people disagree and say season 1 has better animation than season 2 because season 1 has squash and stretch and more exaggeration while Season 2 (and today's Simpsons episodes) have animation that's too conservative and too stiff. There are some animators who enjoyed working on Season 1 more than the later seasons.
