I would like to propose removing spoiler tags on this page for volumes 1-4 and the first two short histories from volume 10 since they've been out for quite a while and the anime, which adapted these volumes, aired way back in 2012.
Instead, there will be a note saying "This page contains unmarked spoilers for the first four volumes and the first two short histories in volume 10. You Have Been Warned."
Pulled for being a Zero Context Example:
Eyes of Gold has been renamed to Supernatural Gold Eyes. The trope for characters with supernatural origins have gold eyes. It's not for anyone who just happens to have them. Please put the example back if it fits with more context.
Deleted Blue Eyes for Takumu "Taku" Mayuzumi, Fuuko Kurasaki and Mana Itosu. On its disambiguation page, Blue Eyes has been split into six tropes. Please replace with one of those only if applicable.
So, I want to add characters from the Dural:Magisa Garden manga. I don't think its right to add a folder dedicating to them; rather, I'll add them to preexisting ones. Glass Monarch goes to "Nega Nebulus" while the remaining 4 goes to "Other Burst Linkers".
Listen up: with the advent of volume 12 certain things have popped out that are just too much spoilers. As such we need to have a set of rules governing spoilers. Make note: we haven't decided on anything, and these are my personal thoughts. If you have a complaint or wish a discussion, please head to the Accel World thread on this site to discuss it with everybody.
Things to ban:
Spoilers in general should be limited to 1-2 volumes ahead of the anime. Yes, I know the main entry is for the Light Novels, but for 90% of Accel fans the anime is their only link to the series. None of the L Ns past volume 3 have been translated (excluding the sidestories) and none of the manga have up-to-date scanlations either.
Your recommendations show good intentions but I think you're being overzealous. It's fine to crack down on any spoilers that aren't covered and your recommendation about the seasons/spoilers is good but not perfect: there's a few things from Season 1 worth spoiling even if future seasons come out.
Basing how much info from the L Ns will be listed on how far the anime episodes are won't work because nobody knows whether the anime will have more season(s). Trying to base how much info will be listed by saying most fans of Accel World are from the anime, not the light novels, is also troublesome because that's not even a standard used by other entries on TV Tropes. Otherwise we need to reedit entries from Oreimo and Infinite Stratos (to name 2) because they are all ongoing light novels that run beyond their animes, even though they got most of their fans from the anime.
If what you mean by "ban" is "make everything hidden because it's spoiling people", then while I do not think it is the way to go (because the anime isn't even guaranteed to have more seasons, and because the light novels are the original source), the fact that most people can't really read the later light novels is a pretty good reason to keep things from the later ones hidden and thus a good reason to make a slight exception here.
On the other hand, if that means not adding information from the latest light novels at all, then you really are overzealous.
Yeah, I meant a total ban (not adding anything at all). While it might look overzealous, all of the later spoilers are just too big and change too much for someone who just finished the anime. Though it looks like nobody's listening to me, what with Wolfram and Argon being posted ahead of everybody else for god knows what reason. Not to mention adding in the full list of Rust Jigsaw's attacks without spoilers while keeping Sulfur Pot's attacks hidden.
Is it okay to remove the spoiler that Takumu is Cyan Pile now?
Yes, we should. Its not like any of the posters are hiding that fact.
Pettanko is not a trope. UsefulNotes.Pettanko is a fanspeak term definition only. The tropes are A-Cup Angst (girl is sensitive about her lack of size) or Petite Pride (girl is proud of her flat-chestedness). Anything else is not a trope. Please return this example to the page under the correct trope if (and only if) it fits one of those two tropes.
