Single Proposition: Handling Spoilers

Go To

Vote up for yes, down for no.

At issue:

Should inherently spoiler tropes (Tropes where the very name of the trope is a spoiler for the work, like Bad Guy Wins or The Hero Dies) be grouped up at the bottom of work pages that they are spoilers for?

Vote up for grouping tropes that are inherently spoilers together at the bottom of a page.

Vote down for keeping tropes that are inherently spoilers placed and alphabetized regularly in the trope list (the current format).

Pros:

  • Keeps spoilers out of the way for those who don't want to see them.
  • Allows for easier editing when what constitutes a spoiler is under contention.
  • Doesn't create blank spots in the trope list where a trope name and the whole example is spoilered-out.

Cons:

  • Potentially reveals other spoilers for people looking for a particular item.
  • Violates the normal alphabetizing rule for example lists on works pages.
  • Results in some works pages having a different format from other works pages.
  • Debate over what should or shouldn't be listed as a spoiler.
