God Of Cookery has been cleaned up, and all of the YMMV/Trivia moved to their respective pages.

crion87 has a sketchy edit history. Another set of eyes would be much appreciated in looking these over.

For example, someone else needs to go over this page. I'm an extreme skeptic, and I'd prefer to just cut out all the real life psychic examples.

Umm, yeah, that TT article is horrid. Is it even possible for it to happen in Real Life, given that no psychic phenomena have ever been proven in a laboratory setting? I cut everything but the D&D example.

The specific pages involving crion 87 that could use another look. It's a bit of a link dump because they all look a bit dubious to me but honestly, I can't stand to look at them any more and determine their quality. My instinct says, "delete," but I know any objectivity has been eroded away at this point.

TT/Cool And Unusual Punishment comes off as borderline creepy to me.

TT/Heroic BSOD His edit starts with "Yikes! Dabbling with the darkness..." but the whole page really needs cleanup.

TT/Mind Screw Wall of text. Lots of walls of text on that page.

TT/What Did I Do Last Night Wall of text that doesn't seem to be an example of the trope.

TT/Dating What Daddy Hates The paragraph preceding the line starting with "Evil Foreigner..." is his, too. That may be salvageable.

TT/Accent's Slipping Wall of text.

TT/Harsher in Hindsight I can't tell exactly what the point of his story is (particularly the last sentence).

TT/Rule of Cool Wall of Text

TT/Even Evil Has Standards Example starts with "Depressingly enough..." (it's more than 20 edits ago) and kind of rambles around.

TT/Mistaken for Gay Example starts with "Played painfully straight for..." and doesn't establish the trope IMO. Example more than 20 edits ago.

TT/Hypocrite Personal hatred?

TT/Take Over the World Wall of text.

TT/What an Idiot Wall of text. Starts with "This normally very intelligent troper..." (Content older than 20 edits.)

TT/The Maiden Name Debate I'm not sure if this is an example or not.

TT/Sorry Billy But You Just Don't Have Legs I don't know if this qualifies or not. The page in general could use a look over, too.

I deleted the examples on What Did I Do Last Night, Dating What Daddy Hates, and The Maiden Name Debate, since they seemed clearly not to be actual examples. (The first started with him saying it was an aversion, the second is something he only thought about doing, and the last didn't give any indication that his mother had ever wanted to keep her maiden name, only that he wanted to adopt it).

As far as I'm concerned, deleting the rest of his incredibly long-winded and frequently creepy/TMI anecdotes would be no great loss to the wiki either, but I wasn't sure enough about them being unacceptable to delete them without further discussion.

Repurposed Pop Song has twenty uses of This Troper, along with Natter. I don't have the time to do it by myself.

Sheesh, half of that looks like it belongs on Troper Tales.

Fire Emblem Elibe Blazing Sword could really use someone to go through it an move the massive amount of YMMV to the YMMV page.

shimaspawn,

I was not sure what the protocol was for this kind of move, so I just soft split the Fire Emblem Elibe YMMV page so that part of it was for the general series and the other part was designed for specific character YMMV tropes. If that was the wrong thing to do, I would be glad to fix it though.

Retired Complete Monster got a half-assed rename back in November of last year, by someone who decided that moving the actual page to Retired Monster was all he needed to do.

There are still 35 wicks that need to be checked.

The Headscratchers page for Kesha needs some work, considering the "entries that made you say wut" thread spotted two bad ones. There is a little bit of complaining that may need to be weeded out.

Madrugada,

I was able to reduce that to six wicks, but the ones remaining are either on Troper Tales entries, blank pages, or seem to not exist for whatever reason. I apologize for not being more helpful there.

Pettanko has over 1000 wiks despite not being a trope. It's just a fanspeak definition page. The tropes are A-Cup Angst and Petite Pride. I could use some help going through them and either moving or cutting the wiks.

But what if a character doesn't fall in either of those categorizes? It's still an appearance trope.

It's not an appearance trope. It's just a fanspeak definition. That's why the page has no examples.

I worked on Universal Universe Time's examples a bit, but I am not experienced with dealing with natter, so I would definitely appreciate it if someone were to check my work.

Looks good to me. You cut the back and forth chatter and kept the important information (if there was any), incorporating it into the main point. That's the best kind of natter removal
