What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
The previous crowner concluded that one, the other, or both of the Nightmare Fuel pages should be renamed to try to clear up the confusion between them.

The three options are listed below. I [Madrugada] will add Pros and Cons for each one as they are stated in the thread. Please make your statement of pro or con clear and concise; if I can't figure out what you mean,I won't add it. Please do not add any other options; or pros or cons yourself.

Voting UP means that you think that option is the one that should be enacted

Voting DOWN means you think it is not the one that should be enacted.

-Rename Nightmare Fuel, don't rename High Octane Nightmare Fuel

-Rename both

Reasons to rename both:

  • High Octane Nightmare Fuel's name currently derives from Nightmare Fuel's. Renaming the latter but not the former would leave HONF as a reference to an obsolete trope name.
  • Thousands of wicks are currently examples of HONF but potholed to Nightmare Fuel. Renaming HONF as "Nightmare Fuel" will direct the majority of the current NF wicks to the correct page.
  • High Octane Nightmare Fuel is both long and unwieldy as a name. A more direct name will net better search results.
  • Simply calling HONF "scary stuff" would make more sense, as the page simply lists scary stuff with no rhyme or reason. Nightmare Fuel is a specific occurrence.
  • Nightmare Fuel is the direct counterpart to Defanged Horrors, High Octane Nightmare Fuel has more in common with Tear Jerker than Nightmare Fuel.

Reasons not to rename both:

-Rename High Octane Nightmare Fuel, don't rename Nightmare Fuel

Reasons to rename only High Octane Nightmare Fuel:

  • Simply calling it scary stuff would make more sense, as all the page is about is listing scary stuff with no rhyme or reason. The different title should stop confusion with Nightmare Fuel, which came first and is used as intended outside of the wiki, High Octane is specific to TV tropes.
  • Nightmare Fuel is the direct counterpart to Defanged Horrors, High Octane Nightmare Fuel has more in common with Tear Jerker than Nightmare Fuel.

Reasons not to rename only High Octane Nightmare Fuel:
