[up]Should Pixiv be marked as closed? The option's history page shows that it prevously had strikethrough markup (before the 1.8 update disabled strikethrough in crowners), so it appears that it was reopened without permission, most likely by accident when reverting the "Bibble Bobble" text (other options had that text reverted).

Ah, someone beat me to it! Well, here's what I had to say:

With Tumblr in its death throes, I think it's time to work in a complete overhaul of the site's pages. Pretty much all of them bear the earmarks of having been written up around 2012-2013. Tumblr's entire culture has gone through so many morphs by now that it's impossible for TV Tropes' pages on it to not look incredibly dated. I'd love to open up a discussion on what should stay and go.

Death throes? I heard a lot of rumours about it going down, but that never happened.

Ehh, it's "dying" in the same sense Livejournal is — the userbase is rapidly declining, but there's no particular sign that the site is about to be full-on shut down.

With regards to twitter, it's in a bad state right now but could be retooled into something appropriate for our site.

There are twitter accounts that produce fictional, tropable content that isn't enough to have their own page. That's what should be hosted on that page, not the current examples.

Yo, nombretomado! I've been working on a rehaul of the Tumblr pages. Mind telling me how to go about Sandboxing it/getting it approved? Do I just go to Sandbox/Tumblr and paste what I've got, then create a forum post asking what people think and my suggestions for its other related pages?

[up] A Sandbox page would suffice.

Yahoo! needs a little TLC. A lot of them are related to Yahoo!Mail and Yahoo!Answers, and how it couldn't catch up on Google.

Also, they have a new logo.

I'm afraid I can't help for Yahoo!. I abandoned my email accounts there years ago, and the few times I've gone there to check things out, I don't like what I see.

I'd say to delete Yahoo!. All of the tropes are about its operations as a RL Internet company and have nothing to do with any creative media it may have produced.

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:

How well does it match the trope?
