Follow TV Tropes
I'm opening up a Cleanup Thread for Americans Hate Tingle because I've recently misused the trope horribly.
On the SD Gundam YMMV sub-page and the SD Gundam Force YMMV sub-page, I made the following edits;
I have since taken the edits down, but I still misused the trope and made vast generalizations of two fandoms, and I worry that someone might repeat the same mistake I made.
So I would like to ask that from now on, this thread be used to debate whether examples people want to add count as examples before including them, like Magnificent Bastard and Moral Event Horizon.
Might I suggest this only be used to axe bad examples and no bureaucracy is involved? I think a lot of people are trying to emulate the CM and MB threads success by thinking those threads are the only way to do cleanups especially for more basic tropes that shouldn't need effortposts? I made that mistake with The Woobie Cleanup and I shall not allow anyone else to make it.
Yeah, the idea of having effortposts for this trope is just pointless.
OP created this and two other threads recently, and I donít even think this trope suffers from much misuse. It seems as if OP created these threads only over the fact that he misused some tropes once.
I hollered for all of them to be moved to Short-Term Projects, but only one of the threads was moved there.

Yeah, threads like these are more for when there's a persistent and serious issue plaguing an area of the site; these do seem like they were based on personal confusion rather than any hard evidence. I'd be fine with short term, but long term is pushing it.

How well does it match the trope?
