A non censored fork of TV Tropes is available!

  1. Hi everyone! I'm GethN7, and after speaking with the Sankaku staff, I have received permission to tell you all about our site.

    I manage the All The Tropes wiki on the Orain wiki farm service. It is a non profit fork of the now censored (and getting worse) TV Tropes wiki, and while we both cover the tropes and writing devices in all types of media and the works that use them, TV Tropes has chosen since April 2012 of last year to bow to the whims of their advertising sponsors and have censored all mention of works they deem controversial to the advertisement sponsors, such as hentai anime, hentai games, adult movies, or anything they feel would anger their ad sponsors interests. They have also heavily censored and edited many works (like hentai games that had work safe adaptations) to only reference material from the work safe adaptations only, and many trope pages referencing material found in adult material have been censored or excised.

    The article on this very website is now banned, as a matter of fact.

    We feel this has polluted TV Tropes' integrity as a writers resource and since many of our sponsors are writers ourselves and we all value academic freedom, we feel this censorship of certain material does not allow the full discussion of tropes and works necessary for the entertainment and education of how tropes work and how works use those tropes.

    On a more personal note, I personally object to the idea that hentai anime, hentai games, adult movies and mature content is general has to be censored to make ad sponsors happy. I and my associates we also greatly disgusted and disappointed at how arbitrarily work pages were cut for "porn" or "pedo-pandering", and we were even more disgusted and how many tropers were treated as degenerates for being fans of things like hentai anime/games, etc.

    At All The Tropes, we do not shame anyone for being a fan of a fictional work, whatever it might be, and we feel all tropes and works have merit and are worthy of discussion, and since we are funded purely by donations, we promise not to censor content arbitrarily or turn anyone away for liking certain content.

    If anyone is interested, you can find our wiki here:

    I sent off an email to the staff, asking if I could make this topic, and they approved my doing so.

    As for our wiki, it is an uncensored version of TV Tropes. The same basic idea, but no arbitrary rules, the community has a say in what goes on, we don't censor content, and the moderators don't act like power tripping douche bags (after seeing how Fast Eddie runs his wiki, I try to go out of my way to listen to other people and make decisions based on their opinions).

    In fact, many of us were banned from TV Tropes because we didn't like how it was becoming a censored dictatorship.

    False. We do not accept any form of advertisement on the forums.

    I recieved a response from someone called Artefact, and the email I got goes like this:

    I'm aware of the issues surrounding TV Tropes (in fact at the time we heard various complaints and I looked into the situation) and their management. Personally I thought their stance was inappropriate, but I appreciate that advertisers effectively assert a massive imposition of censorship on sites and donations aren't a terribly effective way of funding such activities.

    By all means announce an uncensored fork of TV Tropes on the forums, since it is non-commercial and their policy is so unpopular around here I am sure nobody will object. It certainly has our blessing, their management seems to have a very un-wiki-like outlook even if it is a private site.

    It turns out there are only a handful of links to TV Tropes in the (now finally expanding) Channel wiki so editing them around would make no real difference, but that would have been my suggestion too.

    Thanks for being so conscientious as to ask about this matter!

    I wish you the best of luck with this, and please feel free to get in touch about any other matters if desired.

  14. Yeah, only Artefact would write a sentence like "I appreciate that advertisers effectively assert a massive imposition of censorship on sites."
