Selling the Show lists aversions; wouldn't they go under Creator Backlash or Old Shame? I suppose it could be a notable aversion if the creator bashed a work they were involved in while it was still in production and/or they got legal or other repercussions for it. I think this Doctor Who example would fit more under Creator Backlash, though:

With respect to that, is the Fix Fic example on YMMV.The Lorax misuse or not? It says that the 2012 film could be seen as one to the book/1971 film.
It should be removed since its not ymmv.
Audience-Alienating Premise, but doing well, so it doesn't count?
That just sounds like Sleeper Hit instead. I don't see it as an Audience-Alienating Premise for sure.

ew. quite aside from whether it qualifies or not, it's crufty and nattery as all get out. in addition, the Audience-Alienating Premise page states that the premise has to turn enough people off so that the work fails, so you're right, it doesn't apply. axe with prejudice.

So, given the above, this wouldn't count since it doesn't say if the book failed or not. And it must fail, to count, too?
Tag as Zero-Context Example, or cut?
Edited by Malady on May 9th 2019 at 7:06:02 AM
I say cut. It doesn't explain why it is that.
And since we are talking about Audience-Alienating Premise...
YMMV.WATATE Nan Angel Flew Downto Me, Audience-Alienating Premise is being misused as this premise is uncomfortable and not this premise did not garnered any audience. The example:
I deleted this twice from two different tropers, but i don't want to delete it a third time for fear of a edit war. So i wanted to make sure im ok in deleting it.
Well considering you've been ignored thus far in your attempts to get opinions on this example, I'd say just bring it to Ask The Tropers and let them chime in.
But yeah, I'd say it's using the wrong trope.
I did bring it in Ask the Troper first, but i wanted to make sure here.
These examples on Bizarro Episode violate Examples Are Not General and sound rather complainy. I think the episode of Goku and Piccolo could be kept, though.
agreed on complainy. if that example is to be kept, it needs to be cleaned; it's nattery as-is, and a ZCE to boot.

Avengers: Endgame spoilers below
The film's trope page contains:
The decade tropes are under Hollywood History, and the city trope is under Hollywood Geography. I have argued (by commenting them out) that they are not examples since they do not have any markers that demonstrate "this took place here/when", making their setting incidental, or as they're currently written, they do not explain those markers.
Correct. Those are incidental uses of the settings, not "the work is set in this decade/location".
Should we just cut all Zero Context YMMV, and Zero Context Tag, all such Main, because it's a lot easier to find context for tropes, than YMMV?
From YMMV.Lyrical Nanoha.
Audience-Alienating Premise: It's a Magical Girl series aimed at young adult men. Moe is de rigeur for most anime, but the cutesy imagery can be a turnoff for American (and some other Western) audiences that don't look beneath the surface to the action series within.
While series didn't get over in the west, it became a big success in its home country. Delete?
Hmm, yeah, that probably fits better under Americans Hate Tingle.
I don't know anything about these Audience Alienating Premises, but remember that it's initial audience reaction, and that it can still be a Sleeper Hit, while remaining a Audience-Alienating Premise, while you are cleaning the examples.
It can't cant be both. Audience-Alienating Premise is when it fails regardless of its
quality. Saying its a Sleeper Hit means it did succeed.
the page for Audience-Alienating Premise specifically states the work must fail for the trope to apply. if it's a Sleeper Hit, the work didn't fail, and thus AAP is out.
e: that said, if you think that part of the trope should be changed, that's a discussion for TRS. i feel like a case could be made for it.

What type of Dub Name Change, is the Characters.Harvest Moon Mineral Town examples?
Also, would it be a Strong Family Resemblance inversion, if someone who wasn't someone's family member, is Related in the Adaptation, but their appearance doesn't change?
Like brown haired Ellie being said as the sister of the black-haired Stu?

For a potential entry on YMMV.Sakura Wars:
Is this a true example or a misuse?
Edited by gjjones on May 10th 2019 at 8:10:40 AM
regarding your second point: that's not an inversion, it's just not an example. listing family members that don't look like each other is very much People Sit on Chairs.

The Wii U was one of Nintendo's biggest failures outside of the Virtual Boy, not helped by little marketing, a poorly thought out name that made it look like it was only a peripheral, and constant jokes about it not having any games (not helped by that massive drought for a year). That said, when it picked up hype, it picked up a lot of hype. When it got its first party offerings, several people saw the system as a great companion or secondary console (heck, quite a few PC gamers consider it their favorite of its gen because it had the most value in exclusives) that a lot of old school gamers respected for being one of the last bastions of 60 FPS gameplay outside PC. To make a long story short, many consider it the modern day Dreamcast in the best way possible (although the Wii U lasted longer than the Dreamcast).
Um, is this a valid example of Vindicated by History? I haven't seen many people defending the Wii U in .... any way.
i have. Vinesauce Vinny for one; my girlfriend for another. im not sure it's a widespread opinion, but i dont think it has to be to qualify, right? that's why it's a ymmv trope.
