Okay, what's happened to the YMMV page? Twice in two days the YMMV page has appeared to have been completely rebooted and all of its data lost. What is the deal?

Creators can't have YMMV pages. See the Ruleof Cautious Editing Judgement.

That's ridiculous.

A lot of YMMV pages for creators degenerated into creator bashing, hence the discouragement on Creator Page Guidelines. Rule of Cautious Editing Judgment is a related policy, but not the only one important here.

And what about all the creator pages that have perfectly valid tropes tagged as YMMV applicable to them?

We don't trope creators, so that would be wrong for a different reason.
12:23:14 PM Aug 14th 2014
.....that happens all over the place.

Shamelessly stealing from rodneyAnonymous: ""The other thing is also bad" is not an argument in favour of the first". We are in the process of cleaning these tropes out.

Also, I'll note that the current page content has nothing to do with works.

Fair enough

Yes, any YMMV items relating to a creator should go on their respective work's YMMV page.

What's currently on here should be cut and put on either the Mork and Mindy or Superman page, if not cut entirely.

24 hours has not passed since the announcement, and at this point Robin-related trending topics aren't all the top hashtags anymore. So, can we remove the twitter bullet for being inaccurate?

(For reference, it is 08:44 where I am posting from.)
