Follow TV Tropes
I'd say that we should leave it in the namespace and then let wiki magic take care of it. If an example has been there for, say, two-three weeks, then zap that shit up.
At least, those are my two cents on the matter.
Analysis.Zombie Apocalypse, unless someone rewrote it, was all stuff cut from the main page.
Many of them have the problem that they're good points that are not analysis.
As such, they either need expansion or they should be deleted.
On Analysis.The Book Of Mormon, I just signed my name at the end. Seems like a much less obtrusive place for it than a whole heading.
There are a few works I want to write character analysis' for, something in the vein of Family Guy, but a bit mote in depth I think, is it at an acceptable level?
Note that this is just my opinion, but I really don't think analysis should be just another "review" section, which the Analysis.Family Guy shows signs of. Analysis should go into things like why the troper thinks the character/etc. was changed in such a way, and what impact that then has on the rest of the show.
Not the troper's opinion on whether Stewie 2 sucks.
Oh, and definitely support signing names at the end of analyses and comments.
I see what you mean . Is writing detailed descriptions of a character's characterisation and how the character is developed a good bases for an analysis?
I think so. After all, in many works characterisation is the most imporant and core part of the thing.
We're discussing Analysis over in Wiki Talk in this thread, and Septimus mentioned that this thread exists. So to bump and get the conversation going again, I wrote Analysis.Short Range Shotgun a few days ago. We discussed it in the related TRS thread, and most people found it clear and informative. Any other thoughts? I want to start writing Analysis pages for many of the other firearms and military tropes along the same lines.

Gonna try my hand at this. Going to dig through my watched list and pick something.
Some tropes have folders in the opening paragraphs describing "Common forms of this trope" these ought to be moved on to an analysis page both to get good use of it and to reduce the character count.
I'd agree as long as they're not identifying related tropes that need to be in the "related tropes" paragraph.
I wrote Analysis/Escapism the analysis of escapism
It's almost an article of length. I was very inspired.

I've actually written full-on analyses of a few episodes of South Park, taking apart the universe that Parker and Stone have created. There are minor instances, though, of review speak (i.e., I couldn't get through Woodland Christmas Critters without mentioning that I hated it). Would they still be all right to put in Analysis?
There is now a medal that can be earned for writing well written Analysis pages.
I wasn't quite sure if this is correct, but I'd done a series of Analyses on South Park for a television forum, and posted the first one at South Park. If someone could let me know if I was on the right track, that'd be great.

I created an analysis page at for Americans Hate Tingle, but I mostly just did it because the main had a "general" examples section that clearly was not meant to be there but I thought some of the information might be salvagable. I re-wrote it to be more essay-ish, but I am not exactly a lit anal kind of person so I was hoping maybe someone could look it over for me.
Hi everyone, I'm new to all this analysis stuff, but I've written a bit of an essay about the elements of Speculative Fiction in the series Sherlock. It's long, so I've tried to make it entertaining, but I'm wondering whether the style is too informal or whether this type of content veers to close to an alternate interpretation. Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated.
I created an Analysis page for Johnny Test relatively recently, analysing the Hatedom of the show, but keeping the viewpoint neutral.
Do I have to ask before I create an analysis page for a work? I'd like to do an analysis for the Daria page related to character development.
No, you don't have to ask. Go ahead.
How hard of a rule is it that Analysis pages have to be in essay format? I'm trying to flesh out the analysis page for Epic Rap Battles of History in order to fully explain the more obscure historical jokes and context, but it doesn't look like that lends itself well to an essay.
I see no reason you couldn't use a bulleted list or whatever format best fits the information you're trying to convey.
Same idea from me.
