Page Action: Real Life Section Maintenance 40

Go To

What would be the best way to fix the page?

At issue:

These are pages that have been proposed to have their Real Life sections cut and tagged to not be recreated.

Vote UP to indicate you think the Page should have NO Real Life examples.

Vote DOWN to allow Real Life examples.

Items that have been stricken (like so) have already been decided, meeting the following requirements:
  • They have ten or more total votes,
  • have been on the crowner for at least 48 hours, measured from when the new crowner entry's addition is announced in a thread post,
  • and are stable with 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.

Stuffed into the Fridge: Narrative trope, giving a protagonist an It's Personal incentive to act.
[Added 29th Dec '15 at 09:51:01 AM]

Carnivore Confusion: Not possible in RL, the trope description explicitly says in works of fiction and involving Talking Animals.
[Added 13th Dec '15 at 08:00:00 PM]

Cut Lex Luthor a Check: Villain trope.
[Added 13th Dec '15 at 08:00:00 PM]

Male-to-Female Universal Adaptor: Sex trope, and impossible in real life. The page already asks not to add real life examples.
[Added 6th Jan '16 at 06:44:15 PM]

Fat, Sweaty Southerner in a White Suit: Stereotyping magnet, and sometimes a villainous trope.
[Added 8th Jan '16 at 02:09:51 PM]

MacGuffin: Narrative trope, RL doesn't have a plot for an object to advance.
[Added 25th Dec '15 at 06:08:31 PM]

Dork Horse Candidate: Morality trope and gossip/flame war potential.
[Added 22nd Jan '16 at 20:24:24 PM]

Landslide Election: Too common in RL. It was agreed to keep. [Added 29th Dec '15 at 06:42:56 PM]

Failures on Ice: People Sit on Chairs in RL.
[Added 3rd Jan '16 at 06:16:19 PM]

Murder-Suicide: Too common to trope.
[Added 26th Jan '16 at 05:40:00 AM]

Prayer of Malice: Flame Bait magnet, since it is a delicate topic.
[Added 8th Jan '16 at 02:41:34 PM]

Older Than They Look: Too common to trope, and a mild form of gushing about real life people.
[Added 26th Jan '16 at 05:40:00 AM]

Reasonable Authority Figure: Too common to trope.
