Follow TV Tropes
I don't know why my previous thread has been deleted but I'll try again.
A Call-Back according to the definition of this website is "A reference to an earlier event in a series that's relevant for the plot." However, most people here either think it's interchangeable with Continuity Nod, a reference to an earlier event in a series that's NOT relevant for the plot, or think it's an event, a situation or an entire plot that's mildy reminiscent of a previous one even when there's no link between the two ("It's not the first time that Blah blah blah blah" "X does this the same way Y did in episode 12", etc). I'm a bit Butthurt every time, I go on a episode recap page.
I propose to make the definition more explicit or change the name of the trope but it's also possible to change the definition in order to match the misuse.
Sorry, ~Silverblade 2, I forgot to include the message when I closed the previous thread. Apologies.
Anyhow, we do have enough of a megaproject backlog here that adding another megaproject (the trope has 7300+ wicks) is counterproductive. And a mere assertion of misuse is not enough to justify a thread.

How well does it match the trope?
