Wick cleanup: Sliding Scale Of Anti Heroes get usage counts

note 

Original OP preserved in the note to allow for cleanup instructions.

Cleaning up the sliding scale:

Ok, here's the course of action:

How we will do this:

  • Purge all Zero Context Examples. That includes Type I-V labels.
  • If the label has context, replace it with the appropriate tropes that were split off. The correspondence can be found below.

TypeSplit Trope
Type IClassical Anti-Hero
Type IIKnight In Sour Armour
Type IIIPragmatic Hero
Type IVUnscrupulous Hero
Type VNominal Hero

Start with what series you already know.

Does "purge" mean outright deletion, or "comment it out and put a warning to not remove comment markup without fleshing out the example entry"?

Purge means delete. Comment out only when there is already commenting-out on that page.

Did A-B. Also, what do we do with the boldfaced note on Anti-Hero? I think of simply deleting it.

Also did C-D.

Now E-F.

So we delete the whole Anti-Hero entry if it has a Sliding Scale Of Antiheroes pothole and is a Zero-Context Example otherwise, instead of commenting it out? Or are you just talking about the pothole alone?

Yes. Let's keep in mind that most of these wicks are from potholes from Anti-Hero entries - entries that, I notice, are usually some form of wankery about whether the character is Type X here and Type Y there and have no useful information on the Anti-Hero example.

If that's the case, then I retract all of my reservations. I guess I was confused by how the Negima pages recently had several instances of Zero-Context Example entries being only commented-out instead of being outright deleted, by what I assume to be a wider-scale drive to get rid of Zero Context Examples (apparently there's too many of them).

OK, got all wicks (except for a few). Can I get cookies for this?tongue

Here are some Dragon Age cookies, but unfortunately, we still need to check Anti-Hero wicks for references to the scale. tongue

With over 5000 wicks, we'll need more hands here. I will be busy with Dead Little Sister and uni stuff in the next time so I won't be able to help much (and I've seen enough "Type X" chaff to last me for the next millenium)

Good cookies, by the way.

I got Z, not that there were that many. Most were ZCEs.
I'm bad, and that's good. I will never be good, and that's not bad. There's no one I'd rather be than me.

Had to dewick Sliding Scale Of Anti Heroes again - I'll bring it up in the cleanup maintenance topic.

I cleaned the hyphenated redirect Anti-Hero. Has anyone objections to cutlisting it?

Are we done with this?

Hi.
I assume this is done, and therefore it should be locked.

Nah, they want all the Anti-Hero wicks to be checked against "Type X" things.

Can we do the same to the Sliding Scale of Anti-Villains.

EDIT: Here is the sandbox, it still needs more work.

edited 19th Jun '13 8:15:20 AM by randomtroper89

Now how is this typically done? Does someone feed all 5736 links on the "related" page into a bot that downloads all pages, looks for all entries containing Anti-Hero, and looks for the type labels on those pages?

Bumping this. I assume there was no progress, aye?

Another bump. Probably not. Should it go into a Projects forum now?

Hmm, if the label only says Anti-Hero without referring to type labels, should it be removed as well?

An example like:

can always be axed or commented out.

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
The Pragmatic Hero YKTTW is suffering from a problematic description. Here are some options to consider.

These options are not mutually exclusive.
