What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
+58 (yeas:65 nays:7)
Set up a parallel system for Lost and Found that works just like YKTTW but dealt with separately.

Pro

  • YKTTW's features would be highly useful
    • discarding - allows easy deletion when trope is found
    • tagging - allows easy retrival of your entry after some time
    • "date of last reply" sorting - bumps up your post when it gets a response
    • named messaging - allows easy collaboration on clearing up confusion
  • Lost and Found entries wouldn't be mixed in with other long lists.

Con

  • Would still need a way to move new tropes over to YKTTW easily.
    • Possibly not a problem if we just launch from there? Would it form a "second class" YKTTW?
  • Would need to make names for entries.

Make Lost and Found into a forum.

Pro

  • If particularly common, a stickied thread of FA Qs may be possible
  • Means we don't have every request listed on top of each other.

Con

  • Forums are poor at handling large numbers of new requests coming in a short time.
    • May need creation of several pages and sections for Fora.
  • No deletion system- would be difficult to handle multiple repeated requests
    • What would qualify for FAQ?

Merge Lost and Found and You Know That Show and Ask The Tropers and put them into a system that works just like YKTTW.

Pro

  • YKTTW's features would be highly useful
    • discarding - allows easy deletion when trope is found
    • tagging - allows easy retrival of your entry after some time
    • "date of last reply" sorting - bumps up your post when it gets a response
    • named messaging - allows easy collaboration on clearing up confusion
  • Similarity of idea behind the three sections may make them mergable.

Con

  • What we do with the three sections when they are done vary, especially with Ask The Tropers.
    • Problem of sending new tropes from Lost and Found to YKTTW
      • Possibly not a problem if we just launch from there? Would it form a "second class" YKTTW?

Keep as is.

Try inventive use of folders.

Merge Lost and Found with YKTTW

Pro

  • YKTTW's features would be highly useful
    • discarding - allows easy deletion when trope is found
    • tagging - allows easy retrival of your entry after some time
    • "date of last reply" sorting - bumps up your post when it gets a response
    • named messaging - allows easy collaboration on clearing up confusion
  • When a brand new trope is discovered, it can easily be converted into a YKTTW entry to be launched. See flowchart

Con

  • Still a long list in which to find your trope.
  • Would need name for entries.
