At issue:

These are pages where it has been proposed to limit Real Life examples to those before a certain point in time, usually for reasons of the Rule Of Cautious Editing Judgment or recency bias. Please discuss tropes in the thread before adding them; entries added without discussion are subject to deletion.

Proposed time limits may be over a rolling period (e.g. \"no examples from the past 6 months\") or a fixed point in time (e.g. \"no examples after 1975\").

Vote UP to agree with a proposed change; vote DOWN to disagree.
