While Unpleasable Fanbase has been a problem for any media with a sufficiently large fanbase (you simply cannot please all of the people all of the time), in the Internet Age it takes on a new dimension when even a small minority can [[{{Troll}} make their opinions heard]]. It's enough to make an author [[CreatorBreakdown want to give up.]]

A possible sign of an UnpleasableFanbase is a MortonsFork: if they complain about one thing, and the [[ExecutiveMeddling people behind the franchise listen]] and fix it, only to have other parts of the fanbase complain about the change. This is because, in extremely large fandoms, [[BrokenBase different portions of the fandom]] complain about distinctly different things, so that [[ReTool any change]] (and in particularly bad cases, [[ItsTheSameSoItSucks any lack of change]]) will inevitably anger someone.
