* {{Meme|ticMutation}}s: Memes are at best [[AudienceReactions fan reactions]], but usually they add very little to the wiki and end up dragging down the humor value. Memes may use tropes, however they are not tropes. Please leave them to Website/KnowYourMeme (and even if they become common enough to have their own pages, such as the ''WebVideo/HitlerRants'', those count as works, not tropes).

!Not tropes and not page worthy

These items have no reason to be given their own pages here:

* Administrivia/ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontLike[=/=]CreatorBashing: [[HomePage We are not a wiki for bashing things anyway]], and nothing meaningful or interesting can come from ranting.
* {{Meme|ticMutation}}s: Memes are at best [[AudienceReactions fan reactions]], but usually they add very little to the wiki and end up dragging down the humor value. Please leave them to Website/KnowYourMeme (and even if they become common enough to have their own pages, such as the ''WebVideo/HitlerRants'', those count as works, not tropes).
* Administrivia/PeopleSitOnChairs: Meaningless things that occur incidentally.
* StockPhrases: While we have a StockPhrase index, [[Administrivia/NoNewStockPhrases they are themselves not worth a page]].
* Administrivia/TooRareToTrope: Something very rare most likely is coincidence rather than convention. Ditto for something extremely complex.

!Not worth their own tropes

These items do not have to be split off of already-existing tropes.

* Administrivia/TheSameButMore: Trope X {{exaggerated|Trope}}, {{downplayed|Trope}}, or even {{parodied|Trope}} is still Trope X. Ditto for Trope X [[TropesAreNotBad done well]], and Trope X [[TropesAreNotGood done badly]] which are still the same trope (just part of the AudienceReactions). Trope X {{inverted|Trope}}, however, may qualify as a [[OppositeTropes separate trope]] if the inversion is common enough.
* Administrivia/TheSameButMoreSpecific: If the additional distinction doesn't make some new meaning, it's not enough to make a SubTrope of a current trope.

!Not tropes, but still notable

These items, while not tropes (unless they are InUniverse examples), are still interesting facets of storytelling, and worth noting here:

* AudienceReactions: Emotional and subjective reactions of audiences are on the receiving end of storytelling, and often [[IntendedAudienceReaction aimed at]] by creators.
* FanSpeak: Definitions of storytelling and fan terminology.
* SugarWiki/GushingAboutShowsYouLike: Unlike {{complaining}}, it is usually aimed at by creators, and thus notable (and less troublesome), but please keep it to SugarWiki.
* {{Trivia}}: These are interesting little facts about stories, or common behind-the-scenes conventions, that don't show up in the story itself.
* UsefulNotes: What you need to know about things in a story, also to debunk common media misconceptions.

THAT'S WHY I GOT THESE STUPID NAMESPACE EFFORT PAGES LOCKED FOR '''GOOD''' SO ALL THIS ENDLESSLY REPETITIVE SPAM SHOULD BE '''OVER''' ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:(

Namespaces
are conventions and [[TropesAreTools tools]] in storytelling. But not everything we record are tropes, nor is everything in storytelling tropes. As mentioned below, things that aren't tropes may still be notable enough to get their own pages.
