* '''[[YMMV.HomePage YMMV]]''' and '''AudienceReactions''': YMMV tropes are found in works, but the degree to which they are present is often highly subjective and/or prone to argument. Audience Reactions are broadly categorized under tropes, but really they're opinions about a work rather than stuff that's factually present in a work. Both go on the work's YMMV subpage to keep the main page clear for objective stuff. Then there are the even more subjective concepts found in '''SugarWiki''' and '''DarthWiki''' that are restricted to their own subpages.
