Pages that need the YMMV banner:

Cosine!
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.

Good catch. Removed the banner on that one.
Ironically, the pursuit of the definition of happiness does not appear to be a happiness-maximizing behavior.
Cosine!
Let me just go through and see what else might have gotten caught in that...

  • Anchored Ship, maybe. Not entirely clear on what it is, but it looks objective enough.
  • Faux Yay.
  • Leave the Two Lovebirds Alone, and I question whether that really qualifies as a shipping trope btw.
  • The Matchmaker, Matchmaker Crush, and Matchmaker Quest are all clearly objective.
  • Minionshipping is written as though it were an objective trope, though I'm not sure it actually is.
  • Official Couple is defined by not being an audience reaction.
  • Portmanteau Couple Name, while blatantly an audience reaction trope, is also pretty objective. We have a different banner for audience reactions, right?  *
  • Ship Sinking, I think? It seems like it is usually a thing that happens in the work, but it depends on a certain audience reaction happening first? =/
  • The Ship Yard isn't YMMV, but Just for Fun. And Just for Pun.
  • Slash Fic can be objectively applied (or objectively not applied, as the case may be) to fan works. The page may need cleanup (or an Example Sectionectomy), though, as a quick skim of the examples gives the impression that most are "this fandom writes slash".
  • Super Couple has four paragraphs of background with the definition hidden in there as sly as you can get, and no Laconic. But I think it's supposed to be objective.
  • Token Shipping is written as objective, but it could go either way.

* Marks tropes that I think may need further work in TRS.

Edit: Stickifying this, since it's an ongoing maintenance topic.

I see the Awesomeness.
If Super Couple has four paragraphs of backstory, shouldn't it be in TRS for a trimming?

Agreed. Someone launch the topic, I don't have time.

rationally insane
I Liked It Better When It Sucked definitely needs a banner.

TURN OFF THAT LIGHT!
Everything in the It Sucks index needs a banner, just not sure if it's YMMV or Flame Bait.
Regulated fun - the best kind!
I don't make the rules, just enforce them with an iron fist.

[up] I put the subjective banner on all of 'em.

Flanderization look objective enough not to require the YMMV banner. Also, wasn't this thread getting pinned?

Might need a debate on Flanderization. It's often used subjectively even if it technically has an objective definition. Also, it is stickied. I did that a while ago.

Despite supposedly being fixed, it looks like Downer Ending still has a banner: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=1296156818091622800&page=1#2

Merchandise-Driven seems clearly a trope to me, so I took it off Fan-Speak. Yet it still has that banner.

 139 Fighteer, Thu, 27th Jan '11 7:34:20 PM from the Time Vortex Relationship Status: Dancing with Captain Jack Harkness
[up][up] I think Eddie is messing with banners.

[up] Doesn't come off until a mod takes it off. Fixed.

highly secure
I don't think Adorkable should have a fan speak banner, seeing as it has a list of examples, just like a trope, and is a character archetype that is often intentionally achieved.

Whatcha gonna do, little buckaroo? | i be pimpin' madoka fics
Highly subjective, though. Should have a YMMV banner, at least.

Jump the Shark maybe?
 143 Fighteer, Fri, 28th Jan '11 7:12:00 AM from the Time Vortex Relationship Status: Dancing with Captain Jack Harkness
[up]I'm retagging that as YMMV, pending resolution of the "Fanspeak" debate.

More stuff that people added to YMMV and has been removed.

That should be it for now.

Did all of those but some of 'em look subjective-ish to me.

That was fast. Now for an addition.

Most Triumphant Example: This needs something.

Also, why does Doing It for the Art have the fan speak banner? Its not like it can be argued that North was made to be a good film.

[up] It's on the fanspeak index. It'll keep having the banner automatically until/unless that changes.

[up][up] Put the subjective tag on.

Doing It for the Art is out.

Also, can Most Triumphant Example have the same banner as Your Mileage May Vary? It again is not for the YMMV tab, sign your entries like DMOS except positive.

Okay. I don't know how to make that blue-ish banner but I can put the fanspeak one on it.

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?
