I've never seen the appeal of TV Tropes, to be honest.

I think it's part and parcel of the humour in which they point out things you'll recognise in so many books and shows you watch.

But most of it is either lame, a gross simplification or congressional overreach.

I like TV Tropes a lot, I enjoy it in the way it pokes fun at certain archetypes and clichés and finds interesting trends between films, videogames or TV series. That said, it has to be taken with a grain of salt and I do find basing one's criticisms on the amount of clichés in a film or the likes to be on par with plot holes, inaccuracies and continuity errors with regards to most irrelevant observations for discussing quality. Worse, it's worrying to see the number of people who get caught up in such pointless details to the point it defines their overall viewing/playing experience. Granted, there are exceptions where these things may be intrusive or detrimental, but usually they define the term 'nitpicking'.

TvTropes used to be good, now it's prettybad. I'm saddened by their continual stricter rules on anything interesting, while at the same time their complete loss of control over fiction speculation.

Like, you can't refer to something being 'dark' without some flippant jerkwad nazi editor you out because 'dark' is subjective to your screen setting or something and you should keep it in the 'your mileage may vary' opinionated section. More informal than the other wiki my hairy butthole.

But then at the same time, their most interesting section is completely overrun by idiocy. WildMassGuessing used to be a place where you could find interesting theories on current shows. Now all you find is 'Walter White is a Time Lord' or 'Slender Man createdthe Marvel Universe'.

The **** went wrong, TvTropes?

Seems like they do a pretty ****ty job at it too, because I've seen a number of unabashedly opinionated statements amidst the examples for each article. A trend I recall in the site for example is to refer to Mike Patton in ridiculously hyperbolic manners - the only time I ever felt the need to edit the page was precisely to eliminate some of the bullcrap claims made about him. Labelling something as "dark" may be subjective, but it's a heck of a lot more acceptable in these contexts than calling someone "the greatest".

I've hated TV Tropes ever since an aspiring writer kept using their terms to explain their story. It just feels cynical to try to boil down everything to a formula, even the "Hero of a Thousand Faces" manages to do that without calling out and ruining good stories.
