I'd like to be consistent in how we're handling the "see also" part of pages dealing with story tropes or fanfic-specific genres. My preference would be to handle it by linking only to tropes that are related topically, and linking to the Story Tropes page as a pointer to other fanfic tropes in general. (See the discussion at Talk:Kidfic.) Does anyone want to argue for a different approach? I don't want to make this change across a bunch of pages if there are objections.--Penknife 17:17, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

I agree. To me it makes no sense to link "badfic" or teamfic or wingfic from futurefic for example. Kidfic maybe, but not all gnres.--Ratcreature 18:09, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
Okay, a couple of people have said they agree, and I haven't heard any disagreement yet, so I'm going to replace links to unrelated tropes with a link to Story Tropes here and on similar pages. We can always put them back if someone feels strongly that they're helpful.--Penknife 18:41, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
I meant to comment on the kidfic entry earlier, but went to bed, but I agree, too. Since there is that main tropes page now, a link to that would be good. See also "story tropes" makes sense. See also "wingfic" doesn't. --Kyuuketsukirui 20:32, 17 October 2008 (UTC)
