Manic Pixie Dream Girl[edit]

I don't see anything wrong with "Manic Pixie Dream Girl" being called simply a "Dream Girl". – George Serdechny 14:02, 25 April 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Because that's not the term. Drop the "Manic Pixie" and it loses its meaning. "Dream girl" is a more generic term for an adored woman, as noted by its wider usage at Dream Girl. postdlf (talk) 14:23, 25 April 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Ridiculous template[edit]

The template as it currently stands is just a random collection of indiscriminate information, which is WP:NOT what Wikipedia is for. Every thing someone thikgs might be a trope or a meme or something they saw on TV once or something they think they know is all thrown together in one bizarre list of links. It's an embarrassment to every article it appears on. DreamGuy (talk) 03:06, 30 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]

I can't believe this was kept, this page is awful. "Handsome Beefcake" -> "Prince Charming"? Seriously? Why can't this be kept on TV Tropes, where it definitely belongs? (talk) 11:56, 19 November 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Holy shit, this is unsaveable dross. It's just complete synthesis.Zythe (talk) 21:16, 2 December 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Expanded template[edit]

I've tried posting ((Stock characters |expanded=all)) but it doesn't expand any of the collapsed lists at all and it is supposed to expand them all. Is there a setting that will do this? Liz Read! Talk! 16:27, 4 October 2013 (UTC)[reply]

I tried all of the ((Stock characters |expanded=Lists)) with all of the separate lists but none of them appear expanded, they are all collapsed. Liz Read! Talk! 16:33, 4 October 2013 (UTC)[reply]

bald synthesis[edit]

Generally agree with the other comments here, not at all clear why this template exists, or how it's managed. Just a mess. aprock (talk) 06:16, 12 February 2014 (UTC)[reply]
