Is thread mode allowed on the WMG pages? Because I always assumed they were in thread mode (as opposed to unified-article mode) by default, and that was how it was supposed to be. Like, I assumed that responding in a sub-bullet was preferable to editing someone else's WMG.

But this article doesn't state any exceptions where thread mode isn't bad.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, thread mode has to be acceptable at least in Headscratchers, since posting questions and responding in sub-bullets is pretty much the definition of how Headscratchers works.

Upon re-reading, I think the key phrase is "a wiki page meant to be informative".

Being informative is, obviously, not the purpose of a WMG page ;)

It's a shame too, this used to be my favorite thing about TV Tropes..

It was never allowed in the first place. I understand the appeal (I like reading conversations), but TV Tropes is still here to inform, not to bicker, so it ultimately bogs the site down. :(

I was about to say "On the other hand...", but I realized what I was about to do in time. Although I agree with the OP.

I dislike "This does not provide a fun reading experience at all." The self-demonstrating version with is a much more interesting read than just stating the facts and actually includes more information. I understand about the arguments, but don't cast a blanket statement on all dialogue.

How well does it match the trope?
