Follow TV Tropes
There are some valid moments that were added more recently (like some funny things that happened on the forum), but I tried to comment out a lot of the ZCE on the Funny page and there were so many ZCE. I think it's probably better to just cut the ZCE rather than comment them out because they're usually referring to something that's changed on the wiki (like photos and descriptions) anyway. And content like "this entire trope's existence" feels too close to auto-erotic troping.
If we did that, there would be no page left.
Also, I donít even know if itís healthy for Mario Pissing to stay on the page. It was the progenitor for THAT draft, after all.

Bringing the page to the Cut List anyway.
EDIT: Whoops, sorry. Canít do that.

If we cut Mario Pissing from the Funny page, we should cut all the other examples that list outright vandalism. Some of them do have big honking "this isn't encouraged" disclaimers but that's basically Do Not Do This Cool Thing.
Sure, letís go with that . . . if youíre not completely edit banned.
Hold on there Guma, need more consensus first.
Hey I have a question about this thread.
So the Nightmare Fuel cleanup thread has been used to clean out obviously non-scary examples on pages.
Could this thread be used to clean out obviously non-awesome/funny/sad/heartwarming moments from applicable pages? I've seen Moments pages with lots of issues before, so I'd like to contribute.
Sorry if it's an obvious question, but prior discussion appears to indicate a bit of disagreement about the correct usage of this thread.
Since it's not allowed to even mention them anymore on TLP, we should only talk about them on Why Fandom Can't Have Nice Things and the Timeline, cut any mention of them, Troper Tales, and Fetish Fuel on the Funny page.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
is it speculative?
Edited by Silverblade2 on Sep 8th 2020 at 12:01:48 PM
Right, but they were talking about all of the Funny examples having to do with vandalism, not just 5T.
I wouldn't say "speculative", exactly, but something still tells me we shouldn't have that.
That was the original purpose of this thread. Get rid of blatant exaggerations on moments pages.
Ah OK. I will consult this thread whenever I find blatant non-applicable Moments examples.
We don't trope "mere concepts." We trope works. That Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity entry is written in the future tense, but we don't trope the future. Call it speculation, call it shoehorning, call it whatever you want. It's garbage, cut it.
Yeah, there's no way to predict that a work will make you feel a certain way. It's purely organic; you can't speculate how you'll feel. I mean, okay, you can, kinda, but you can never be sure you'll actually feel that way.
Alright so I tried to make a Sinfest cleanup but it fizzled out almost immediately so I'm just gonna bring these here:
The Awesome, Funny, Heartwarming, and Tear Jerker pages have major ZCE and Weblinks Are Not Examples problems — some ZCEs don't even do that!
I already cut the Nightmare Fuel page because it had nothing salvageable, but I can see from a quick glace there are at least some examples that try to explain what happens on the other moments pages. I just don't know if there's enough to keep the pages itself.

The Funny page for Wikipedia has two entries about Wiki Vandals named Willy on Wheels and Grawp. Should we be really glamorizing something that isn't allowed on Wikipedia nor TV Tropes?

Found these on Funny.The New Mutants:
For once, a valid Hindsight example.
Valid for the Twitter account, not for New Mutants. It should be moved to the Web Original subpage or something.
The Backyardigans has only two examples, and one of them is meta. Don't know about the other example. Any help?
"Actor passing away is a Tear Jerker" is the kind of basic example that led to cutting TearJerker.Real Life. The actual example can probably be moved to YMMV.
Eh, the first Backyardigans example seems like it has a happy ending, so I don't think it really counts since the sad mood will be gone by the end of the episode.
Canít the examples just go on YMMV?
EDIT: Neither example seems valid, actually.

Alright, I will remove the example I moved to YMMV.

How well does it match the trope?
