Page Action: Real Life Section Maintenance 51

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 addition of the new crowner entry is announced in a thread post,
  • and are stable with at least a 2:1 vote ratio.

No further voting is needed on those items.

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

Dumbass DJ: Troping RL people in a rather negative way, given the nature of the trope. Flame Bait. Actual DJs should be under radio, since we're troping the persona, not the real person.

Formerly Fit: This is too common in real life to have a section for it and real life examples of this are ultimately irrelevant.

Huge Schoolgirl: Troping RL people

Artistic License – Paleontology -Natter, shoehorning, completely wrong trope, examples should go in related tropes, general examples, conversation on the main page, multiple other problems

Gypsy Curse: Stereotype based trope that's also impossible IRL.

[Added 7th Apr '17 at 08:45:38 PM]

The Last DJ: Questionable examples (politics and such). Not to mention the whole trope concept (assumptions of being the only non corrupt member of a corrupt group) is gossip at best and Flame Bait at worst. The alt title "The Last Honest Guy In The Biz" should raise a red flag.

[Added 19th Apr '17 at 12:20:59 PM]

White Sheep: Applies fictional morality to real people by way of labeling families of the "white sheep" as villains.

[Added 19th Apr '17 at 3:12:57 PM]

Artistic License – Law: Natter, general examples, complaining, conversation on the main page, addition of material that should go on a Useful Notes page, multiple other problems.

[Added 8th May '17 at 09:23:54 PM]

Silver Fox: Basically "sexually attractive older people" (ie, textbook Gushing .) Also chock full of Zero-Context Example entries.

[Added 10th Apr '17 at 06:57 PM]

May–December Romance: Very common in real life and among celebrities.

[Added 10th May '17 at 05:36:26 PM]

Hollywood Voodoo: PSOC issues, plus it feeds off racist stereotypes.

[Added 10th Apr '17 at 07:11 AM]

[moved to crowner 52]

Indian Burial Ground: PSOC IRL, and racist besides.

[Added 10th Apr '17 at 07:11 AM]

For Your Own Good: Controversial examples (Straight Camps, troubled teen torture boot camps, etc.) Also related to NRLEP Honor-Related Abuse and Financial Abuse.
