Since we're most likely moving this, how are we converting it to JFF? What sort of jokes will be added?
I feel like making a joke page would be redundant with TV Tropes Ruined Your Life. Moving it to JFF but keeping it definition-only would be fine enough. I don't think we need to clean it off every page whenever it's cheekily referenced in descriptions and such, though.
I don't get the argument for it being a trope or YMMV because there haven't been any provided examples of this site-specific idea showing up in media. Certainly not enough to be a trope and not just a stock joke about the site.
The issue is, as it is now, it's not written as JFF. So we need to convert it somehow.
...That's a very good point. I feel like when I supported the previous idea I had an idea of what I was thinking, but I can't seem to remember what it was.
My idea is to turn it into some sort of like joke PSA page about ways the site will ruin your life.
For those interested in how it it used elsewhere, Sandbox.TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life is there.
I don't feel like going through the whole list at the moment due to a combination of being sick and being up for hours, but from what I did look at, it looks like more of a Pothole Magnet than a trope or Audience Reaction, so I'm still in favor of either a Just For Fun move or making it a Fan Speak page.

I think we're overdue for a crowner, but I'm not sure what to put on it other than moving to Just For Fun (since I don't think that's the only thing to add).
I'd add "convert to Audience Reaction" and "split".
Although I'd probably sandbox a JFF page version, first.
Attached it, although the point about sandboxing still stands.
I saw that Sandbox.TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life exists when looking through the wick list of Administrivia.Wiki Magic for the Wiki Tropes thread, but I don't know if it has anything to do with the Just For Fun proposal.
Edit: I advertised the crowner on ATT.

Let's see... it's been around forever, has Sugar and Darth counterparts...
I think the crowner is safe to call. It's been more than three days and it looks pretty stable.
JFF it is. Calling.
Update: Move done; as the main page was locked, the lock has been carried over.

Okay, we got 1250 wicks to deal with in case others want to help with it.
I moved the Main.TV Tropes Has Ruined My Life redirect to JustForFun.TV Tropes Has Ruined My Life and cutlisted the former.
Edit: Ignore, wrong thread bumped.

I asked for the discussion page to be moved in the Locked Pages thread. (I can't post a discussion page notice until after it's been moved.)
Edit: It's been moved, so I'll go ahead and post a notice on the discussion page.

Added to Wick Namespace Migration because I somehow forgot to add it to either that or TRS Wick Cleaning.

How well does it match the trope?
