Some of these sections are getting pretty big. Do you think it's time to alphabetize them?

This troper has a computer example. Just listen to the beta Windows 2000 (5.0) startup sound and tell me if it isn't cool.

Sixth one down.

If you're allowed to still edit this trope, I have one for the Pro Wrestling category. In 2000, there was a love triangle going on between Kurt Angle, Triple H, and Stephanie Mcmahon. The head writer at the time was Chris Kreski, a man with no previous wrestling experience and from Hollywood but despite that actually did a great job with developing the angles for WWF. Well, originally Stephanie was supposed to leave with Angle which would have either led to HHH turning face or him becoming a bigger jerk than before. However, HHH did not want to go through with it because he felt that it wouldn't make sense for his character to get dumped for one like Angle's. So, that was dumped, Stephanie stayed with HHH and the rest is history.

It should be noted that while the love triangle angle was still going on Kreski was replaced as head writer by Stephanie Mcmahon, who pretty much killed the angle dead at the next pay-per-view Unforgiven and everything went back to normal. Imagine if Kreski stayed a little longer as head writer for WWE. Everything in WWE after that post Unforgiven could've been a whole lot different.

A quick clarification here; is the trope just about GOOD things that Could Have Been, or all alternatives to what we ended up with? Because if the former, quite a few of the examples on this page (and on work pages) could be gotten rid of.

Tropes Are Not Good. Well in this situation, Trivia Is Not Good, but you get the idea.

Concerning the Avatar entry under Western Animation:

Wasn't some of that information proven to be an elaborate hoax? I do know for a fact that a lot of it is true, such as the finale being shorter, the universe being more high-tech (or at least the Air Nomads), Toph being a man, etc, all from DVD commentaries and other interviews. But I do remember reading that the "evil Iroh" aborted plot stuff was fake (from some forum that I can't remember right now), and the source being 4chan-related really doesn't help. Can someone who knows a bit more on the topic check up on that? I'm not completely sure myself, so I may be wrong.

Thanks!

How is there a section about Disney parks but no mention of the original plan for E.P.C.O.T: Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow? I'd add it myself but I'm not much of an editor and I have to wonder if it was intentionally kept off the list.

So... just what is the source for the characters Snake-man and ADAM in the Beauty and the Beast Unit? I searched the internet, and nowhere did I even find anything yet. Care to cite where it was at, anywhere whether it was on the net or not?
