I put out a call on the discussion page.
You can just split by the current set of folders. They're broken because of length, but the headers are still there.
Rhymes with "Protracted."
The alternative/indie performers make up the single-largest category, followed by Rock and its derivatives (of which Metal also has its own subpage), Pop, Electronica and Rap.

I'm working on Fallout 3's Headscratchers. EDIT: Done.

Seconding what FELH 2
said about giving types to new subpages.
Also, when you want new pages to be indexed on the main page, please enclose them in index tags and
change the page type to trope+does indexing or work+does indexing. Then do a null edit to activate it. Otherwise the subpages will be unindexed.

Oppression anywhere is a threat to democracy everywhere.
^Or change the page type and then add the index tags to save a step.
Earl, did you do the Mass Effect 3

Nope, just did the work page (it did get to more than 400000 at the time).
Someone who knows the game can take care of the WMG page. Work pages are much easier to sort out, since you merely have to be alphabetical, but you'd have to categorize things like WMGs, so I'll leave someone else to it.

How do you know if a page has gotten too big and should be divided into smaller pages? Is there a way to count the words on a page?
edited 22nd Dec '12 6:59:14 AM by Mullon
The lettercount is on the bottom left corner. The smaller number is something else.
We usually split when the big number crosses 400k. When it hits 500k Bad Things start happening.

In uffish thought
I'm sorting the Villain Whitewashing Service
; I should split it today or tomorrow.
Edit, three hours later: Done. Agh, my hands...

I don't know if this is the place, but I was redirected here after a TRS suggestion to split Surprisingly Similar Stories
. Originally, I was suggesting a soft split, but it's creeping towards the 400,000 mark. Should it be hard split anyway?
...do we even really need that page?
Cool, nevermind, then.

It's flagged as Just for Fun
If it helps, my suggestion would be to divide the main page into folders where all of the works in an entry of of the same medium, and split off cross-media entries onto a separate page. I haven't checked the maths of it yet, though.

Folders don't affect whether the page is too large.
I know. I suggested splitting off the "category" I'd guess would be the biggest, were it to be sorted that way. I'm not sure whether the others would be large enough to warrant their own pages. I might be wrong about that being the biggest and the others being too small; someone would have to go through the page and count them.
It's been almost two months since the last page length report. Can we get new one to get things moving again please?
