I'm cleaning up these pages, trying to condense things down so we don't have so many pages. Once all the redundant ones are approved for cutting the links will be removed.

EDIT: I'm a moron. They should be redirected to the new pages.

I've been adding quotes to some for fun, but I wanted to check with the community before I made any big changes.

The speeches, especially on the main page, really stick out when compared to how most Character pages are formatted, but I didn't want to just go in and delete someone else' work without checking with everyone else first.

What is with all the indexes? Many countryballs do not have a single trope. You could categorize all the countries by continents instead and still have space left over.

I feel that to deserve a spot on a character sheet, the character should have four or five tropes at least. That is just me. Who is in favor of reorganizing this?

Aye, I'm in favour of this. But I disagree about it being 4-5 tropes. For example, Nigeria only has 419Scam as a trope, but it's central to his character and it gets featured in many jokes. Same with DR Congo.

It is fine if you feel that some should be kept. What should be cut are the empty folders no one is adding anything to. They can be recreated later if anyone has material.

A reorganization could look like this. Not in order.

Europe & Russia

Asia (Middle East could get its own index)

North America (left unchanged)

Latin America (Central America could be added or cut)


Australia & Antarctica & Oceania

Unionballs & Historicalballs & Others

I don't think there is a point in having folders without a single trope listed. And only characterization tropes should be here.

So, is reorganizing the pages to at least remove examples without *any* tropes acceptable then?

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
