I think this fall under this policy.

Arivne has habit of pothole to example list of trope instead of the trope itself. For latest examples, in SCP Foundation SC Ps 1000 And Beyond he make pothole Body Horror and Eye Scream.

I haven't notify him beyond edit reason because it doesn't writen here (and nobody answer my ATT query on this subject).

Reporting tropers is done on Ask The Tropers, not discussion pages. Mods pay far more attention there than here.

No, I don't report him. I just need some info so I can properly notify him why it shouldn't be done.

Use the "sinkhole" notifier.

There seems to be a bit of a grammar error in the explanation of chained sinkholes. It says "That way we'll get mess that turns nearly the entire sentence blue like this:", but I think you're missing something!

I have some questions about "TV Tropes Editor's Use of a Trope". Does it apply to hypothetical scenarios on Playing With pages and similar? I mean if a trope is used in the hypothetical scenarios themselves. How about hypothetical scenarios on main pages? Here's a hypothetical example to illustrate another thing that's unclear: A show is named Bob and Charles. Someone writes this on its page: "Karma Houdini: As Alice put it: 'Bob got away with killing Charles, destroying our village, and tickling a baby'." Is this allowed (a) if Alice is a character from Bob and Charles? (b) if Alice is a critic from a Video Review Show (or similar)? (Note: Some of the questions originally asked here were answered on Ask the Tropers, and have been removed from here.)

An All-Blue Entry is a terrible type of Sink Hole. All Blue Entries should only be ATTEMPTED in a pages 'Laconic' section, and only if (You) can do so in the Laconic spirit.

Does a page that links to itself by redirect count as a sink hole? A link that makes you think you're going to a new page, but ends up just reloading the page is just as annoying as a link that is unrelated. They're definitely just as deceptive, I think they are similar enough, no?

We have a different name for those—they're called "circular" links. They're bad too, although they don't have their own page defining them the way Sinkholes do.

Should we add circular links as an example on this page?
