This is a far more common trope than it looks like from the page, but the page itself is filled with ZCEs and not crosswiked well.

There are only 3 examples I would consider worth keeping on there.

The examples are shit but I'm amazed this trope is doing poorly

Like you'd think this would be a really common thing.

Oh really when?

The description is confusingly worded (and the phrase "you should always expect" is empty bluster). I can sort of see where it's pointing at, but it may be to blame for the lack of well-written examples.

I'll tighten up the definition then. That should help.

EDIT: Is that better?

[up] Yes it is; I made some coding tweaks but overall it's good. Now, we just need to fix the examples...oy vey, what a mess.

Yeah, the examples on this need some help, and it really should be more common than it's listed as right now.

I vote somebody take this back to YKTTW for entry pimping.

[up]That doesn't seem warranted in this case.

It needs something. There are only eight examples for a rather common trope. Entry pimping might not be a bad thing.

Re-clocking; has any progress been made on this?
