Page Action: Real Life Section Maintenance 10

Go To

What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

Deciding which pages should have their Real Life sections removed. Reasons to do so include contentiousness and high potential for flame wars.

Vote UP if you think the page's RL section should be cut.

Vote DOWN if you think the page should still be allowed RL examples.

Items with the trope name stricken (like so) have already been decided, with ten or more total votes, more than 48 hours on the crowner, and at least a 2:1 yes/no ratio. No further voting is needed on those items.

To check if something has already been voted on, please see Keep Real Life Examples.

Sweater Girl: Creepiness magnet. The wiki isn't for talking about attractive RL people

Berserk Button: We aren't supposed to trope Real Life people, and the BerserkButton.Real Life subpage is nothing but talking about how real people go batshit at the drop of a hat. That and politics.

Pretty Boy: It's an appearance and beauty/attraction trope which invites gushing and adding Zero Context Examples of young good-looking men that editors think are cute. Some examples imply they look too feminine. The trope is also Characters as Device. (On the other hand, list of actors who often portray them might be useful. But it's better to list concrete works/roles.)

Russia Iran Disco Suck — political Flame Bait. EDIT: The whole page was cut. [Added 17th Oct '13 at 05:37:40 PM]

Values Dissonance: Value differences between different places or time periods are too common to list. Without reference to media or storytelling, collecting them isn't part of the wiki's mission.

Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Villain trope, also generally a bad idea to go throwing this around on real life people. Sister trope Jerk with a Heart of Gold is already NRLEP.

Bad Is Good and Good Is Bad: Villain trope. Prone to shoehorning and Natter as well.
[Added 24th Oct '13 at 05:23:40 AM]

The Family for the Whole Family: Villain trope.
[Added 30th Oct '13 at 04:58:58 PM]

Dirty Communists: Villain trope. The related Right-Wing Militia Fanatic is already NRLEP.
[Added 24th Oct '13 at 05:18:37 AM]

Bomb-Throwing Anarchists: Villain trope. The related Right-Wing Militia Fanatic is already NRLEP.

Americans Hate Tingle: Flame Bait, Complaining, and it's long to list some of them, just like Values Dissonance.
