Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Sometimes, a trope is distinct enough to deserve its own name and description, but a bit too specific to deserve its own page: There is a huge grey area between worthwhile tropes and tropes that are plainly The Same but More, The Same but More Specific, or similar. In some cases, a trope concept within this gray area is best handled by making it an Internal Subtrope: Give it a trope definition within the trope description of the supertrope and add the trope name as a redirect.

For examples, see Bastard Girlfriend (which have Abusively Sexy Lady, Abusively Sexy Bitch and Abusively Sexy Girl as Internal Subtropes) and Artist Disillusionment (which has Artist Disillusionment Farewell as an Internal Subtrope).
