Added my bombs to the drafts of most concern.

Maybe they could put the drafts up for grabs. I sent them a PM.

v Well, who knows, maybe they'll agree.

They're still working on them, so that's not likely.

Let me piggy-back onto War Jay's observations, taking an equal risk as coming across as biased and angry. Myself and other tropers have noted that the launch pad is swamped at times with trope "proposals" that consist of one-line descriptions and no examples. The Mods are working overtime to do what they can, but sometimes they must feel like they are rowing upriver. I don't like dropping bombs without posting the reason why, but I don't want to spend all day doing just that. As other tropers have also observed, there may not be much we can do about it. Okay, shutting up now and going back to my coloring book.

Anything that needed to be said had already been said at that point, and I did not wish to dogpile.

I'm sorry I didn't mean to make people feel angry and like they're being ignored. I didn't know there was any rush to bring the tropes to perfection. I've had lots of other things to do, online and offline. I didn't know I was causing any inconvenience.

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure don't know what's unclear about my description of Unwritten Rules.

That's why I wasn't responding. I wasn't sure how to edit the description. Also, I didn't know people would be feeling that annoyed about it.

I don't see how my example "muddles" the description.

I was describing one situation, and giving examples of why the rules in that situation are unwritten.

The examples I give, and solicit, are specifically not of the trite, "People sit on chairs" variety.

Okay, other people can start editing Unwritten Rules and Fourth Wall Farewell if they want.

I'll agree, the two I proposed in October weren't very good so they can disappear.

It's not that there's any rush, but that when people have concerns, you should at least respond to the person and make a dialogue. I'm not frustrated out of impatience, but out of never getting acknowledgement.

17th Mar, 2021 01:45:34 PM

I'm sorry I didn't respond soon enough. I just made some edits to Fourth Wall Farewell. I haven't decided how to edit Unwritten Rules. You and others can if you want.

Well, we can take the description-fixing discussion there. That's really all I've been wanting anyway.


How well does it match the trope?
