Shouldn't the fact that TV Tropes has rules to follow be mentioned right on the front page, so that people visiting for the first time can see them and look over them right away instead of having to be chastised for unknowingly breaking them? Something like:

"We are not Wikipedia. We're a buttload more informal. We encourage breezy language and original thought. There Is No Such Thing as Notability, and no citations are needed, although there are still rules that should be followed. If your entry cannot gather any evidence by the Wiki Magic, it will just wither and die. Until then, though, it will be available through the Main Tropes Index.

The Home Page is principally for the people who are reading our site, though, not for editing.

Fair enough, but I still think it should be noted somewhere easily accessible where first time editors will notice that while TV Tropes is more informal, there are still limitations and rules.

Should a page describing the recent change of the graphism be created, to describe the results of the recent fundraising?

I Need help to write an entry for the "Pantheon" page! I know template for an entry layout but not how to do all the "text effects like links. Could someone show me what an entry should look like in "text form" before being posted?

You may want to look at the Text Formatting Rules.

Also, we have a Pantheon discussion if you need help there.

Yesterday, I began work on a guide for recapping episodes and put it under the "so you would like to" namespace. Would it be more appropriate under the administrative namespace?

Prolly, but you ought to submit the suggestion to the Wiki Talk discussion forum first.

I agree that we should have an article explaining crowners. They are perhaps the worst documented part of this site.
