What is the point of this page?

It just seems like a page where people try to act cool and edgy because they didn't like a popular thing.

I agree. At first the concept sounds like a good idea since it promotes that there is more than one way to feel about something. But in practice the average post goes like:

I watched/listened/played/whatever *insert thing here* *insert opinon* *insert optional explanation as to why* then I got bored and did another thing

This page is nothing but whining about stuff that could be much better served on the forums. I tried to read it, and it's not indifferent. It's just "I hated this, therefore I say it has no impact" and the rest is "I did something in real life I knew wouldn't appeal to me."

I feel like it would be better to reverse the current policy so that this page only allows specific events and not whole works. We already have So Okay, It's Average.

A viewer being apathetic toward the death of a character is both of a moment and an example of indifference. Dethroning Moment of Suck has a similar setup.

Really, this shouldn't be a trope at all, as it has more to do with the way people react at the time, which is too unreliable to be tropeable. It is basically People Sit on Chairs, but somehow... less compelling.

This discussion page is pretty cool, I guess. I've seen better, though.

You know since this is an indifference page and not exactly leaning toward one or another side, should this be on a regular page?

It's meant to mock the notion of crowning moments pages, which is what Darth Wiki does.

It does an okay job at doing that, I guess?

I have a thought over the name itself.

Though it's meant to mock crowning pages, wouldn't it still make sense to call it something neither "crowning" or "dethroning", but something more neutral? How about "presiding" (keeping with the royalty terms), or if you want something more mundane, try something like "mundane", "average", or "normal"?

Well the reason the suck page had a different name was because it meant the show lost something. This is supposed to be the peak indifference moment, which is a form of crowning.

So... Now that "Crowning Moment of" was murdered and buried in a ditch, does this warrant a Trope Title change?

On that note, perhaps it might be renamed Indifferent Moments. We can take that up in trope repair though.

In fact, shouldn't tropers sign their entries for this page?

Oh so it's a parody? I'm sorry I didn't know that
