Why does even exist?

Tropes aren't liked or disliked. We have a whole page about this; Tropes Are Tools.

Audiences dislike when tropes are used poorly, not the tropes themselves.

The site's stance is that tropes themselves cannot be good or bad, only used well or poorly. Having a page like this seems contradictory to that.

Tropes can very well be disliked. Tropes Are Tools describes what tropes are, not a completely bogus claim about what people think of them.

This is nice, but how is it supposed to be used?

As a trope to be linked in discussions. TV Tropes is not just an examples repository, after all.

Okay, why is this a YMMV? If it's a trope that someone doesn't like, it's just that. A trope that someone doesn't like. How is it a matter of mileage if it applies or not? Is it just because it's an opinion to the character?

My Pet-Peeve Tropes are True Art Is Angsty, and to a lesser extent, Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy. Yes, several acclaimed works do have dark stuff once in a while (i.e. some of my favorite movies and shows), but these two tropes are where the line has been crossed.

I dislike the trope where the females in anime are always abusive.

Here are my Pet Peeve Tropes: Getting Crap Past the Radar (But their funny sometimes) and Accidental Inuendo (If I end up doing this, expect me to cry)

So, is the troper tales page finally lost forever?

re: Cutlisting.

This page has a particular, definite point. It's about defining a name for a problem inherent in some tropes (particularly ones with Unfortunate Implications, such as Bury Your Gays). The problem with Troper Tales was very specific, and had nothing to do with the main page, which, again, only provides a name for the phenomena.

We could have at least had some warning...

The Wayback Machine should have it, if you really want to move them to your contributor.

Thanks. I'll try that. *sigh* I still really want the page back, but...I'd rather have a list up somewhere than nowhere at all, you know? Even an isolated one.

(immaturity what's that)

Why was the troper tales page nuked? There was no reason for it.

Probably because it got too whiny. Then again that's to be expected of Troper tales

What the nuking or the whining?
01:23:35 PM May 12th 2011
Well, if the TT page is now gone, then is there any point to keeping the main page?
10:51:44 AM May 13th 2011
Because a) the TT pages are not gone and b) it's still an audience reaction. I think the better question is, why did you necro an old discussion?...
03:37:19 PM May 22nd 2011
Right now this page has been nuked once more. Is something wrong?
01:38:14 PM May 29th 2011
Oh god, someone please tell me this isn't permanent. This was my favorite page, dammit! I worked hard on that! Where else am I going to catalogue the tropes that piss me off?!
09:55:38 AM May 30th 2011
On your tropers page, if you really feel that strongly about them.
02:04:54 PM May 30th 2011
Yay! :D
