Page Action: Real Life Section Maintenance 53

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.

Showing 12 of 16. Include items with lower scores.


Deus ex Machina: Like Diabolus ex Machina, the trope requires authorial intent to create a happy ending, which doesn't apply to real life.

Embarrassing Damp Sheets: Too common, has NRLEP in the description but isn't listed on the index.

[Added 12th Oct 2017, 5:04:37 AM]


Foreshadowing: Narrative trope; real-life foreshadowing is just a coincidence.


Make the Bear Angry Again: Narrative trope. It has a NRLEP warning, but is yet to be added.


Horrible Hollywood: Gossip and stereotyping. The NRLEP notice on the page was never discussed here.

Never Live It Down: Flame Bait, hot button politics, bias potential, 25-year threshold being abused.



Requests are not added here.


Questions are not added here.


Cassandra Truth: Gossip, speculation, shoehorning, the coincidental nature of the trope when in RL

Pooping Food: probably impossible, has NRLEP in the description but isn't listed on the index.
