If Spacebattles has a page, then why not make a page for Sufficient Velocity?

So, will it be right to make /fanfiction/Spacebattles page to list all SB-originated fics with trope page?

Possibly I'm being too twitchy but I didn't like the smell of several of those new tropes one little bit. Smelt like an attempt to have a go at the SB critics and fora. To restate the policy: we don't allow the importation of drama from other sites. Cut.

My bad didn't realize that it would be interpreted as a go at the critics. It wasn't meant that way.

Not sure who did the axe-crazy thing though.

Jun 29th 2011 at 11:46:02 PM ••• the page is a stub, making my post above regarding why not to cut it no longer valid.

Richardson cutlisted it again, this time claiming it's for being a stub. Which, if I understand how the wiki defines "stub," it isn't; it has six tropes listed and nine wicks.

Richardson, if you think this is going to prevent the site from getting attention, you're wrong. Where practically nobody noticed the article before, it's now been seen by everyone who follows Ask The Tropers and the Cut List.

I can guarantee you that all this fuss is generating more attention to this page and the site. (This is how I discovered it.) If you don't think something on here is an accurate reflection then edit the content to fix that. If you think that someone's using this page to attack Spacebattles, then edit the offending entry and alert a moderator. Edit warring because you're unhappy that there's a page on the Internet about your forums isn't going to solve anything.

Article needs to have non-review tropes added, or it will be cut. Deadline: First of July

I'm amazed they made someone of your wit and brilliance a moderator around here.

Space Furries Destruction. That is all.

Richardson, You do not speak for all of us. You claim to be keeping riffraff off SB but all you are doing is making us all look like a bunch of assholes. We are no "out of the way nook" We have 13,000 active members and almost 70,000 accounts.

I cut the last sentence from your post. Don't import drama from other sites. Don't export drama from here to other sites. Resorting to personal attacks isn't helping this issue.

You do seem to be doing an excellent job of moving the drama around all by your lonesome, tombcannon.

"The site" does not rule what we talk about on this site. Cut declined.

We pride ourselves on being a relatively out of the way nook on the internet. Only 3-4 members want this page, and none of us want the traffic from TV Tropes. We intend to continue protests until the page is deleted.

FE, from my understanding of the situation (There was recently a nasty review of the site from a banned member in ask the tropers, Richard's protests, the insulting original tropes, etc.) This is importation of drama, basically an article set-up to bitch about the community.

Dropped some material which read like a review / promotion of specific Fan Fics plus a bit of what looks like importation of drama from threads on another site. Also written as a note direct to editors: most readers aren't editors. Hopefully the remaining material is factual.

Jun 26th 2011 at 10:50:34 PM •••

What needs to be done then is to fix the article and remove the drama.

Alternately, you can apparently just wait for Camacan to hit it with some Ninja skills.

While the page topic was shit, richardson's melodrama over it is worse. Can someone ban the fucker already?

Ok. This conflict is really confusing. Should I try to find more works with tropes what are originated from Or should I just GTFO?
