As a correction, it's ten months for sports (the one real-life case where this can happen relatively quickly,) not ten years.

As for real-life BTS stuff happening on any work, it's subject to the 25-year rule.

Okay, so I removed most of the real-life entries on NeverLiveItDown.Web Original, and left a warning to keep future entries focused on the work itself. If I did something wrong or something slipped through, please let me know. This is the first time I had to post a warning on a page.

YMMV.Pokemon Sword And Shield added two examples of Ensemble Dark Horse despite their being only revealed a few hours ago. Is that too soon to judge (given it might be fans gushing and their presence in the trailer suggest some deliberate attempt to promote them)?

[up] Far too soon to judge.

Misspelled trope names dealt with... for now. Moving back to the Understatement project soon?

Can Pokemon species even qualify as Darkhorses?

No rule that says they can't.

The pokemon examples were added back. Should I re-cut? If so, what should I add saying not to add? Is there any reason not to lock the page (I think it was our testing ground for pre release)?

Yes, you should cut. They're receiving far more attention than the other (presumably) 60+ new species, so they do not qualify at this moment. (I'd be fine with a time limit on Ensemble Dark Horse. Even limiting it to one month after release should be fine to remove most of the gushing.)

Sword And Shield example was added to FranchiseOriginalSin.Pokemon. Per this, pre-release seems too soon to say as we don't know how sinful it actually will be and they might have something to fix it by then. Cut?

How's a waiting period on Franchise Original Sin so the dust settles enough to treat this objectively?

[up]Didn't some thing like happen in a later installment and not from the beginning?

[up] Nope. Cutting.

This reinforces my belief it's being misused as knee-jerk. Should I add a note not to add until the game is out?

There should be a set amount of time post-release to prevent knee-jerk examples of Franchise Original Sin as well.

YMMV.Jumanji The Next Level

  • Tough Act to Follow: The first movie was a surprise hit that would be impossible to replicate and many worry a sequel is just hoping for lightning to stike twice. That said reactions to the first trailer have been overall very positive.

I believe this trope requires it be out to judge to count. Cut? Should I cut the page since it's the only trope (and it's the misuse that makes me think we should prohibit pre-release YMMV pages)?

[up][up] Heh, I went to the wrong thread to ask about Tough Act to Follow due to that exact entry. It's not on the index, but maybe it should be.

YMMV.Neon Genesis Evangelion has Overshadowed by Controversy about the removal of the end credits and dialogue between Shinji and Kaworu. However, its a recent event. Should i remove it?

YMMV.Aggressive Retsuko added a Scrappy entry to a character that was introduced in season 2 which premiered a couple of weeks a ago. Can i remove it fir now since it was decided a 6 month was needed?

[up] We never made any decision regarding a waiting period for The Scrappy, and a 1-month waiting period was also suggested. I think we should start a crowner for it.

Jul 10th 2019 at 8:26:11 PM

[up]The first page had a 6 month suggestion. But a crowner is good.

[up][up][tup] Scrappy crowner.

Can it go under the Scrappy Cleanup thread as well?

Update: I moved a Scrappy Mechanic from the upcoming Doom re-released to Tainted by the Preview. I assume Scrappy Mechanic requires it be released so it can properly be judged?

I believe Getting Crap Past the Radar should have a waiting period, as it is one of the most misused tropes. Plus, they could use the time to try and figure out if the example they're thinking about adding fits the trope.

[up] Nothing about the trope would be fixed by adding a waiting period. The only thing that would change is that all the spurious examples are added after however many weeks instead of instantly.

Aye, waiting periods are useful for tropes which require some time to develop (e.g many Audience Reactions) or are "in-hindsight" things, Getting Crap Past the Radar is none of that.

I disagree with adding a waiting period to Getting Crap Past the Radar. It's an objective trope, so examples will either be present or absent regardless of how old the work is. The issue isn't that people are adding examples too soon; it's just plain misuse in that trope's case.
