Follow TV Tropes
I have watched the 10-episode anime and OVA some years ago, but I should be able to take a look at it.
I fixed some of the more major formatting issues, but left the spoilers for now.
Is it OK to strip the spoilers from The Man Behind the Man? It's spoiler-y by nature and it has quite a lot of examples that are basically covered in spoiler font.
, and comment out ZCE while you're at it.
, yeah, that looks pretty ugly, with entire sections of white text. It even has a spoiler warning, so putting spoilers anyways seems self-defeating
Done, but I didn't finish cleaning the Zero Context Examples up. My head hurts.
When I last checked, Red vs. Blue is a borderline quagmire; the pages for Red Team and Blue Team especially are pretty messy. I'd tidy it up myself but as a uni student my time is more limited. If someone could help that would be appreciated, many thanks.
Ditch the spoilered paragraphs in the description. Other than that, I don't think it's too bad.
@ Desdendelle: Your post implied you stripped all the spoilers from The Man Behind the Man by hand. You can use this tool instead for when all the tags needs to be removed. Much easier.
I did use the tool. I just did (some of) the cleanup when I was a bit too tired.
Is it appropriate to use spoilers to indicate words or parts of words that are meant to be hidden but are not spoilers, as on Censored for Comedy?
I would think so, but seeing as spoilers don't display for everyone I would use asterisks in that specific case.
Would note markup have to be used in that case to show the word hidden behind the censor?
This page contains a section that is labelled: "Spoilered tropes; read at your own risk", then proceeds to spoiler tag everything in that section including the trope names. Can we just strip all the spoilers there?
Counterintuitive... Yes, strip that section.
I dropped them all into a folder and stripped off the spoiler markup. Frankly, I don't see that most of them are even spoilers; it appears that whoever made that page is of the opinion that anything that isn't immediately obvious from reading the cover is a spoiler.
There also appears to be a lot of shoehorning in general.
Someone who knows the game better than I do is needed to finish the cleanup.
If character pages are to have no spoilers, Characters.Dangan Roleplay would provide robust start material (it was a recent random find that I had a clash with, incl. despoilering lots of trope names).
Administrivia.Handling Spoilers doesn't list "no spoiler tags on character pages", but certain character pages do have a policy of not tagging any spoilers up to a specific point so that the page doesn't look like Swiss cheese.
Characters.Dangan Roleplay has more holes than a wheel of Swiss cheese, though.
Does the Marvel Entertainment folder of Disney Death have too many spoiler tags, or not enough?
Disney Death is a Death Trope, so too many. The trope pages for death tropes aren't quite Spoilers Off (there are often spoilers that aren't directly related to the death that need to be hidden), but they're pretty damn close.
I mean, the Marvel folder isn't excessively bad, but it is unnecessary.
I removed the tags related to MCU movies and The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, but I have to leave it to someone else to decide the seriousness of those Agents of SHIELD spoilers, since I don't watch the show myself.

The AoS ones don't look too egregious, though I did tweak the Garrett entry a bit.
I do wonder why there are separate Marvel and Lucasfilm folders instead of putting the works from the respective studios in with the normal media folders, though, but that's not this thread.

I feel like we need to figure out what to do with Frog Fractions. Aside from the fact that it needs a description rewrite (which I'm more than happy to do), two-thirds of the examples are whited out. This is due to the fact that the game, by design, goes through a series of gameplay changes that are likely spoilers to first-time players. However, the fact that it's getting a sequel means that interest will likely increase in the future.
I'm wondering if we should stick a spoiler policy upfront and tell them examples will be unmarked, or leave it the way it is.
90% of that page's examples are Zero Context, too. Is there a 'this page really needs help' thread? Looking at it, aside from (IMO) a "here there be spoilers" warning and spoiler-stripping it also needs a better description and context for its examples.

How well does it match the trope?
