The purpose of this thread is to discuss issues of YMMV policy and maintenance on a Franchise/Work/Instalment/Episode/Issue level, as well as discussing which items go on which YMMV page.
Due to the non-negotiable standards of certain items, such as Complete Monster and Magnificent Bastard, if an example appearing in a single instalment/issue/episode is approved by their respective threads, the entry is required to be posted on the work YMMV page as a whole (or the appropriate subpage for the work), as well as the page of the instalment/episode/issue where applicable.
Similarly, because Ensemble Dark Horse, The Scrappy and The Woobie only list straight examples, it is worthwhile to put their examples on the work YMMV/appropriate subpage and the recap/instalment YMMV.
If a narrative specific item, such as They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot, Arc Fatigue, Author's Saving Throw, Big-Lipped Alligator Moment, or Idiot Plot only appears in a particular episode/instalment, it only needs to be posted on the YMMV for said instalment. However, if such items reoccur throughout a work, they need to go to the work or franchise-wide YMMV, or the appropriate subpage.
With regards to YMMV items with No On-Page Examples, it may be worthwhile to restrict such items to the YMMV for the recap of the episode/instalment where the item is listed, since if a series has a large proportion of such items, listing such items in a subpage would not be permitted, while listing every instance of such an item on the primary YMMV would possibly be an exercise in futility.
If you are not sure whether an item belongs on a work YMMV page, or only the YMMV page for the instalment/issue/episode, please feel free to ask the thread.
