There are many subpages that are just one giant list of examples without any folders.
Folders help keep everything organized.
While examples are added in folders, each folder needs to have examples sorted alphabetically.
Let me begin.
WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids.Video Games and WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids.Video Games need to be placed in folders by genre.
For WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids.Video Games, it can be placed in three folders: Nintendo, Other, and In-Universe, which I have done.
Here is a list of pages that need folders:
Remember that the minimum number of folders is three and there have to be at least ten examples in total for the subpage.

This is a great thread idea.
Another page that needs folders is EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.Music. It's an extremely long page, and many of the other EIW subpages either already have folders or aren't as long.
Not just that, but with folders, it would make reading and editing extremely long pages much more manageable.
It would also help with readers looking for examples in specific genres or by specific companies.
Even those that already have folders like Woolseyism.Video Games would benefit further by having the Other folder split by genre, leaving the Other folder to be those not belong in any major genre or a major franchise for example.

SpellMyNameWithAnS.Video Games did a half-baked job by having only Final Fantasy be in its own folder, while all other examples are haphazard.
Though not subpages, Regional Bonus and Remade for the Export would be improved with folders.
For actual subpages that need folders, there's:
Yes, there may have to be more folders for NoExportForYou.Video Games (or even some more franchises other than Pokemon or Tales Series split into new subpages).

I have created a full list of pages that need folders.
~antenna_ears While you're alphabetizing various subpages in Continuity Nod, you can add folders to them as well.

Added Enemy Mine since most subpages don't even have folders. The Real Life subpage has sections, bur it would benefit from having folders as well.
Also added WeCanRuleTogether.Video Games

EyesAlwaysShut.Anime And Manga has been put in folders thanks to ~antenna_ears
I have also clarified the rules for folders.

Added Fusion Fic
Folderized the Animated Film section of Woolseyism.Film between Disney and Other.
Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but will give it a go.
The number of tropes on the Work Page for my fanfic series has gotten lengthy. At what point should I start putting things in folders? Is there a cut-and-dried policy for this? There's a link below if anyone wants to take a look to assess:

Nah, it's basically just "whatever feels right". Anyway, I took a shot at folderizing the example section, trying to divide it into roughly equal portions.
It is also important to read Administrivia.Auto Erotic Troping as well.
We can help you make your fanfic page much better.
Thanks for the folder help, as well as the link.
Added Genius Bonus (most subpages)
A request for help.
I recommend that the folders be by genre and be alphabetized within each folder.
For example, there would be an Action-Adventure Games folder, a Fighting Games folder, etc.

How well does it match the trope?
