Needs example cleanup (What do you mean it's not awesome?): What Do You Mean Its Not Awesome get usage counts

Well, at this point I don't want to ever start another TRS thread ever again as long as I live, let alone volunteer to help on a stalled one, because that instantly means the entire burden of every single wick and cleanup step is on my shoulders, so everybody else can wash their hands of it and run away. No thanks. I still have over 1500 wicks to clean up from Oldest Ones in the Book and friends.

Which, of course, means that any problem I notice will not get solved.

This is why the number of threads in here should be a lot lower than 500. People shouldn't get to start new threads when there are 400 ignored and waiting for help.

That was already discussed and shot down, because it would slow down TRS even further.

But I agree that we need a better mechanism for that. A TRS Wick Action/Cleanup thread and/or a Sandbox page, just like we do for namespace migrations. I'd open a thread to discuss such a policy if it weren't for the fact that I am not good at writing OPs.

So, can one contribute to correct wicks for this one, or one has to wait to Special Efforts or something?
Yes, anyone can, please! Anyone who's actually willing to do some work would be appreciated.

(I have to get back to the wicks I was cleaning up earlier today...)

I see the Awesomeness.
No you can help anytime you want. Once something has been decided, you can immediately start.

It is considered polite to let others know how far you get on each binge, so that others don't redo all of the examples.
Well, I managed to bring the number of wicks down to... 2664?! Who's idea was this again?

I had tried to correct one of the wicks and it seems the change was reverted, that's why I was asking.

Getting to it then.

Just have a copypasted response for edit reasons.

Started doing so just twenty minutes before your post, but thanks for the advice. Should be able to continue working on wicks tomorrow. waii

Doublepost. I'm correcting some of the wicks with focus on works I'm familiar with and things like the Characters subpages. But I'm more or less advancing at the speed of plot...

I cleared up through the U's. Only 2343 entries to go.
Gone to Faerie, no forwarding address.
Nevermind, I was wrong and can't read.

Hold on, guys, don't panic. I was working off the What Do You Mean, It's Not Awesome? list (currently at 2343), not the Mundane Made Awesome one. If I'm not supposed to be doing that, let me know - I'm new here.

Erk, of course your're right and I can't read. The old title has ~2343 wicks still.

Major apologies for the false alarm.

Still wicks to be moved here. Does this need a Special efforts thread?
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Special Efforts thread here. (I've claimed P.)
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

Down to 985 wicks. Nice job, guys!

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