It sounds like a good idea... I'd be down for a test run.

The problem is people adding complaining, knee-jerk reactions. People that add things like that to the wiki, and willingly get into Edit Wars over them, aren't going to care about a note saying "please don't do that".

Yeah, but at least the note would mean they'd have no excuse to not know. They wouldn't be able to plead ignorance, so they'd be easier to deal with.

Maybe I'm being a pessimist, but I doubt that this would work. It's not unheard of for people to ignore notes. In fact, people have been suspended for removing notes.

Even if there would be no excuse for ignoring the note, I still feel that keeping things as-is would keep the mods from having to handle more problems with those pages.

Still, it at least sounds like a good idea on paper. If most feel that it would be more trouble than it's worth, then it would be for the best not to implement it. I'd like further input on whether or not it would be a good idea to try this and see if it'll work.


How well does it match the trope?
