i would state the aggregate scores outright, RT and Metacritic should suffice.
We already have several trailers on the Advertising page, and that is an astonishingly negative ratio. It sounds like it counts if anything does.
I edited the Five Across The Eyes example to state the review scores. There's no Metacritic review, so I used IMDB instead. Bolded is the change.

Den of Geek really liked it, so I don't know. https://www.denofgeek.com/dvd-bluray/7596/five-across-the-eyes-dvd-review
Hmm, that's literally the only good review I've ever seen for it, though. Others describe it as outright unwatchable.
And isn't having a handful of fans not enough to disqualify something?

one good review isn't enough to disqualify it as Horrible; if that were the case, nothing would qualify. i think the aggregate scores are pretty clear in this case.
One good review shouldn't be enough to disqualify anything because every work is going to be liked by at least one person.
Is that consensus to add it, then?
Someone added to Anime and Manga:
Sounds like it's complaining more about the differences from the source material and portrayal of female characters than the work itself.
Nvm, it's got some pretty negative reviews. Maybe a rewrite?
Also, someone added West Wing Story, a YouTube short based on The Simpsons, to Western Animation. We should have gotten a consensus first. Reactions to the short are near universally negative, and it IS exclusive to The Simpsons YouTube channel rather than appearing on the show itself, so I'd personally say it qualifies, but it still could maybe be considered a DMOS.
The short in question for judging. I actually can't tell if it's a short or a clip from an upcoming episode. Maybe hide it until Season 31 is over?
Would NBA 2K20's MyTeam Trailer qualify? It showcases some players' reactions as they unlock new characters by playing casino-like minigames, which was received very badly by players due to worries that Lootboxes and similar mechanics might cause gambling addiction in children (since the game is rated PEGI 3+/E for Everyone). 2K Games made the trailer private on their channel (the linked video, which also has a horrible 23/753 like/dislike ratio, is a mirror from GameTrailers) after getting around 100 times more dislikes than likes.
As far as I know, you can't spend any real money on these casino games, so adding it right away might be a knee-jerk reaction, but still, the sheer amount of hatred the trailer got is astounding.
My current position is to not add the trailer right away, but to keep an eye on it and consider adding it depending on how bad the random mechanics in the released game are.
Adding it right now would definitely be a kneejerk reaction, which the site is trying to cut down on. I say hold off for now.
It looks like somebody already added it to Horrible.Advertising and I didn't notice it. Should it be removed?
it was discussed on the previous page in this thread, and consensus was that it was alright to add. it's the trailer being put on the advertising page, so it has nothing to do with if they eventually change the game.
I somehow missed that too. In that case, it can be kept.
The latest suggestions, save for the "West Wing Story" thing which is a smaller part of The Simpsons and is better suited for Dethroning Moment of Suck.
Are we turning this into another Complete Monster-esque consensus-before-adding thing?

Looks like someone added a(n incomplete) entry for Airplane Mode to the Live-Action Films page:
Pyrocynical isnít enough. Any review scores?
I'm not sure if that film counts as SBIH, considering it has a 5.8 user score on IMDB.

I'd rather not turn this into a Complete Monster-style cleanup requiring approval for every entry. Just deal with problematic ones as they come.
Also, that one movie example could use further elaboration.

Airplane Mode currently has a whopping 1.2/5.0 on Letterboxd, which seems to indicate highly negative reception.
