I don't get it. Why does almost everyone put Fan Nickname on YMMV page rather than trivia page where it belongs to?

Force of habit, which I'm guessing comes from when Trivia pages didn't really exist yet. If you see it happening, just move it to the proper page. No point in questioning it, really.

Does anybody else think that fan nicknames are just plain annoying?

Not when used with some common sense. For instance, shortening longer names is just fine, and comedic ones can be okay sometimes. But they do sometimes get a wee bit out of hand.

Most of the stuff under Scale Modeling seems more like culture slang or just acronyms more than anything else. 'Aztec stairs' fits, but stuff like Dragon Models Limited being shortened to DML doesn't really seem like it should go there. And flash is a technical term for the extra plastic or metal on a molded part, not a nickname.

The exclamation point thing is REALLY REALLY REALLY annoying and reeks of fangirl.
