Why doesn't this article mention the Shout-Out namespace?

Because this is not the article on namespaces. It only lists the general stuff and it does say "If there are enough examples for a given objective trope, it might have its own subpage." We have rarely used namespaces for a lot of tropes, though I'm not certain if that is encouraged or just tolerated.

Why are audience reactions considered subjective?

Because even if you could hypothetically measure the majority opinion of the audience, they are not part of the work, so they don't belong on the main article.

But then shouldn't they get their own tab, since they are not necessarily subjective?

I also think that they should get there own tab.

YMMV is for them.

No, YMMV is for subjective tropes. Audience reactions go in the YMMV tab, but they shouldn't, since they aren't inherently subjective. Hence, they should get their own tab.

YMMV is for both. The only reason to keep audience reactions in main pages is if they're played In-Universe.

The page here states that YMMV is for tropes in which Your Mileage May Vary on, including all audience reactions, without exception. However, Audience reactions are not necessarily subjective. Alternative Character Interpretation is an Audience Reaction, but it's got pretty much no subjective elements (at least that I can see), and actually seems more objective than most tropes.

Take It to the Forums or to the YMMV discussion page.

I was under the impression that Sugar Wiki items are okay to list in a YMMV subpage, unless they have their own button. Was I wrong?

I'm not 100% sure of this but I believe that no, they aren't- or at least they're deprecated. Meaningful content wise, YMMV >> Gushing.

But all the "moments" from Sugar Wiki are linked to the main article, while Crowning Music of Awesome and other such will never be seen if you take them out of YMMV.

Well, don't they count as "there" if they're on the Sugar Wiki entry? It's just one tab click away, exactly like YMMV. AFAIK this is exactly what Sugar Wiki was made for in the first place.

As I thought, making Darth Wiki and Sugar Wiki pages for works is bad form, so I'll change that part back to the way it was.

All right. So where do these things go? Do they actually go in the YMMV space? That's a shame.

They do not go anywhere, apparently. That works.

How did you figure that? The only answer I got was leaning towards YMMV if anything. Also this.

I saw someone edited a part of the article (either YMMV or Audience Reactions, I don't remember) to say that so I figured it was you, according to the answer you got (which is why I edited the other one to say that too).

Huh. Well, then, I'll take my hands off this issue- just edit accordingly when you figure it out. But this really makes sense. Does So Bad, It's Horrible really belong in the YMMV tab?

Of course not. Darth Wiki links, belong absolutely nowhere outside of Darth Wiki. It's just that we're still a bit more lenient towards gushing, that's all.
