* FlamingFruitVendorsAndAngryArabs: Intended to be a page on the Arab Spring, it was cut due to its insensitive name and excessive use of "recent" examples due to how soon into the movement the page was made. We have [[UsefulNotes/MiddleEastUprising2011 a better page]] for the Arab Spring now.

* YourMileageMayVary: The old name for LoveItOrHateIt (and not to be confused with [[YMMV/HomePage the index page for YMMV tropes]]), kept being misused as an expression of subjectivity or even to dispute existing entries despite Administrivia/ExamplesAreNotArguable. Neither redirecting or removing the wicks did stop this usage.

* TokenLoli: It was originally meant to describe a very young female in a predominately teenaged or adult cast. However, constant misuse, concerns about advertisements, the {{Unfortunate Implication|s}} of the trope name, and the lack of a [[DistaffCounterpart male equivalent]] led to it being renamed to the more gender-neutral TokenMiniMoe and redefined to describe the ''only'' prepubescent ([[OlderThanTheyLook or prepubescent-looking]]) male ''or'' female character within the main cast (The "Cute Shotaro Boy", a completely separate trope, was later renamed AdorablyPrecociousChild for similar reasons above).

Fortunately, the problem worked itself out with the channel's "rehabilitation" into quality shows again. Unfortunately, a fresh crop of gripes arises every time a live-action show hits the scene of the network. Guess what pages ''always'' got hit when fans complained?

** Horrible.FanFicAuthors: Created to split Horrible.FanFic, it contained what was then the "repeat-offender" section. Caused an index-wide Administrivia/EditWar for being suspect of CreatorBashing.

We prefer people not to use initialisms and acronyms as redirects to a page, considering that they're often confusing for non-fans and can often have multiple referents. Note that some of these are accidental: initialisms with numbers or lowercase letters count as {{Wiki Word}}s.[[note]]While new Main/ pages now have to go through TLP, or made by a mod, this rule still stands because of the above.[[/note]]
