A video for Parental Fashion Veto is only on Alicia Silverstone instead of whatever film or show she was in.

I notice the video I contributed for Greater-Scope Villain is gone from the page.

I wanna bring up the video on Samus Is a Girl

It's not an example. At all. How 4 people voted it 5 stars is fucking beyond me.

The trope is "A character is shown to be a badass BEFORE being revealed as being female"

It's patently obvious that Eowyn is a woman before she unmasks. Doubly so in the movie proper where this is an established fact long before the depicted scene. The audience knows she's a girl. It's not even clear if the Witch King himself doesn't know she a female, since he most likely uses the term "man" as in the race of man. Not the gender.

Is there a process to remove video non-examples?

[up] Just report it here or on the other video thread. Hollering your post is also a good way to get them to see it.

The Steven Universe video for Satan is Good is the exact same as the now-deleted video for Satanic Archetype, description included. As such, I'm requesting it's removal for the same reasons when it was on SA. The uploader should also probably be sent a PM.


The Ascended Fanon video for SpongeBob cuts off Squidward's last line, and I feel it show have something involving the creepypasta proper before showing the reference - otherwise, it's just a Jump Scare.
Since all of the spoilery videos for Steven Universe: The Movie were removed a while back, I finally got around to compiling a list of spoilery videos for the show proper. They are as follows:
I'm not sure on the video for Something Only They Would Say since it could easily be interpreted that the Pebbles aren't that bright/are in denial and mistake Steven for Pink because of it. But for Me, It Was Tuesday could work, but the quality is bad and there's a white bar on the side of the screen.

That video does fit Satan is Good better than Satanic Archetype, but there's still the spoiler issue. Regarding the SpongeBob Ascended Fanon video, does the fact that we can list multiple media sources mean we can splice together clips from different media?

Just noting this here, as well as the ATT thread - please holler your post or ping (@/{{nombretomado}} if you need a mod to remove a video.

The Samus Is a Girl video has been changed to declined.

Wow someone is a fan of asura's wrath it's like 50 videos uploaded in a day.

Sep 26th 2019 at 8:00:57 PM

[up] I've been reading this thread for a while now and it appears that the amount of videos that get uploaded makes quality control harder. Would maybe setting a daily video limit per account (being able to upload up to, say, 3 or 5 videos a day) help, or would it be too much?

The Lampshade Hanging video on Arthur looks more like Conversational Troping. Lampshade Hanging is when the work itself (in this case, Show Within a Show) draws attention to the fact that it's using a trope, but in the video, it's Brain, who's just watching the Show Within a Show, who complains about how overused and nonsensical the tropes (Complexity Addiction, Just Between You and Me, and Latex Perfection) are.

[up]Agreed. Unfortunately mods can't move videos, only deny them. The video has to be re-uploaded under the correct trope. This seems like a really dumb system.

Changed the status of the various spoilery vids to denied, though pinging ~EvilerThanThou as they must have just received a bunch of PM's.

Also denied the Arthur video and noted it suits Conversational Troping better.

I accept the need to keep out spoiler content, but there is something that's been bothering me. When you upload or edit a video, you have the option to check a box that says "Featured Video", which makes that the main video displayed on the trope page. Below that is a box called "Contains Spoilers", meaning that whoever starting this video project in the first place knew spoilers was going to be a topic of discussion. I've checked those boxes and I haven't seen it effect the display in any way.

So I gotta ask: what does the "Contains Spoilers" box do exactly?

Fair question. I don't know. I'm asking around.

So, it is a vestigial tail. Admins were figuring out what exactly they wanted this to do to the uploaded video - whether that meant tagging it with a warning, or blurring the thumbnail, etc. - but did not have it hammered out when videos were rolled out. Then, it took a backburner to other issues, and never got resolved.

They're seeing about hiding it until it actually does something.

I think the Steven Universe example of Star-Spangled Spandex needs to be removed because of the spoiler of White calling Steven "Pink".

In my opinion, The Total Distortion video entry on Non-Standard Game Over would fit better on Have a Nice Death, since the lyrics are all about that. Make sure to extend the actual song if it does end up making the switch. Also, as of this writing, there's no videos on Have a Nice Death, and that particular song is one of the most popular examples of it. Plus, the song isn't even exclusive to when you get killed by the Guitar Warrior (which is what putting the video in Non-Standard Game Over suggests); it plays in every death, but with different animations over it. I would advise to keep the Guitar Warrior version, though.

The Girls' Frontline entry on Orgasmically Delicious should be on the main page, instead on a characters subpage (the AR subpage).
