I would like to put the podcast, [[podcast/Treknologic]] here, but I can't decide to make a new folder for podcasts, or in web original, what should I do?

Theres not a Darth Wiki contrapart?

Hating stuff that's popular is probably covered under Complaining About Shows You Don't Like, which is exampleless.

Where'd the film section go?

The person who split the page just missed it. I put a link to it on there.

Okay, I have a question. If there was a fan-made game example, like, for example something akin to the Heta Oni series or Turnabout Storm, where would it be placed? I mean, would it count under Fan Fic due to using characters from an already formed series, or would it go under Web Original for being created via "gameplay" videos? I'm sorry but, I tend to mess up on categorizing things like that so, advice is much appreciated. Thank you

Ask in this thread. As it is, Web Original as a namespace has now been dissolved, but I don't know where it would go.

Is it a video? Web Video seems a likely candidate to me.

This trope isn't a good idea. One of this site's biggest and most recurring problem is fan wanking, so giving people a way to say "This series isn't as popular as I think it should be!" is just asking for trouble. It's only a matter of time before someone applies it to a series that's not popular for a reason.

That's what Sugar Wiki is for, though. Just be careful about the main page.

Sorry, but how can Lightspeed Rescue be both bashed for its acting AND have a near-excellent cast?

The difference between having a talented actor vs. that actor's direction.

For the sake of having an example - Tobin Bell. Almost flawless in Saw, and treated like shit otherwise.

I think we need rules for exactly what belongs on this page. The page description says that works listed must have ineffably small fanbases, so does that just cover obscurity or also things like under-appreciation and undeserved hate?

I disagree with the listing of things like CLANNAD and Mansfield Park, because they are very well known and just because not everyone on the planet is gushing for them doesn't make their fanbases non-existent. I also disagree with the addition of Wakfu (as much as I love it), because it has a sizeable fanbase in its native France. The only reason it has a very small English-speaking fanbase is because it's a new show that hasn't been dubbed in English yet.

We should probably restrict it to the former. There's a difference between "more people should read/watch this" and "this dosen't suck, really!"

Re: Cut

Troper Tales- "Ooh something related to this trope happened to me." A page filled with This Troper.

Sugar Wiki - "Ooh subjective opinion about how something is good".

This page is does not contain troper tales (which are tales...about tropers), it's a page of subjective gushing and falls squarely into the realm of Sugar Wiki- something we have a page for but whose examples we don't consider because each example would be subjective and prone to gushing.

Have to agree. This isn't Troper Tales, and it is gushing, and therefore falls squarely into the Sugar Wiki category. Besides, pages aren't moved from one namespace to another via the cutlist.
