Needs distinction from other fire-related trope: Kill It With Fire get usage counts

I've read this thread, and I agree with it's main point - this page needs cleaning. I do not, however, suggest a complete title change. Personally, I don't like how bland the names for a few tropes have been. "Weak to X", quite simply, is far too descriptive. I know it sounds silly, as the title should be descriptive, but it shouldn't come at the expense of, how should I put this, 'personality'. I've read one post here where they stated that they dislike punny names for the Elemental powers; why?
 
Piffy
Perhaps Burn It For Certainty, for the one that's supposed to render things Deader than Dead? It would be a subtrope of It's The Only Way To Be Sure.

[up][up] The people here seem to think that the misuse is stemming from the name. If that's the case, then it probably should be renamed. That's just how it works.

[up]Which is not to say the new names need be dull. Names in YKTTW are just provisional or placeholders, so feel free to suggest other titles.

Hey Nocturna and all, I want to bring attention to this YKTTW (currently named Sweats Napalm). It appears to be the same trope as Weak To Fire or possibly Burn The Undead and should probably be incorporated into one of those two YKTT Ws.

Clocking.

If this gets locked now, will I be able to holler to get it unlocked when I actually have time to work on the YKTTWs?

Ok, I'll help here. What is the course of action?

To my knowledge, launch the different YKTTWs, then possibly redefine the current page to its literal meaning (?).

Wow, this thread is two years old...

...anyway, it was decided to fork off five different YKTT Ws with the different implications of fire in fiction, and then pretty much all examples on this page would go on one of these YKTT Ws instead. Afterwards, this page would be empty and I think it can be redirected to a Fire Tropes index (because the phrase Kill It With Fire is one of those memetic stock phrases).
Special trousers. Very heroic.
Seeking for Light
Er, no. The decision was to make Kill It with Fire the trope found at Sandbox.Kill It With Fire. Or one of the other tropes. We never did fully decide which trope was going under that name.

Really? I thought that was supposed to be the YKTTW for Weak To Fire?

(edit) wait, no, that sandbox is basically "Deader than Dead achieved with fire". That works, but not really by this name. I suggest this name should be a disambig or a link to the index, because (as this thread indicates) people have been using it for any number of fire tropes.

Just launched the "burn it to keep it from coming Back from the Dead" YKTTW as Fire Keeps It Dead.

Clock's up; locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
