After seeing all the discussion from the 2010s clean-up thread, I decided to start this conversation in order to improve the other \"decades\" pages.

For instance, while most of these don\'t have the NRLEP/ROCEJ issues the 2010s page has, they do need more insight, especially for those before The Sixties.

One thing I can say about The Edwardian Era is that the description is a Wall of Text, especially on the fifth and the last paragraph. I say, trim it down and leave the very important parts.

After rectroactively seeing the last paragraph from The '60s, this needs a boost, so Bump.

[up] I think that page is basically fine, although it is a little Not Thriving in terms of examples and work-related wicks. Perhaps the description could be trimmed.

The '80s has a Darker and Edgier example that's all about real life events then, and contradicts a Lighter and Softer example that's actually about media of the time. Can I remove this example?

[up] - Maybe standardize the marker where the examples start?

'Cause "Works set in this time period" sounds like it fits the "Decades" sections more...

But also more like a Useful Notes page, unlike normal trope pages just saying "Examples".
