This Is Sparta has been renamed Punctuated! For! Emphasis!. Can someone do a wick cleanup?

I've fixed the double-redirects (This! Is! SPARTA! and Punctuated Emphasis).

Two down, over 2, 000 to go.

Reviving this from the grave. This Is Sparta now has 1867+ wicks so we gonna a lot more help on this. We should probably delete wicks in which it's used as a meme, a sinkhole and isn't in-universe, which is IIRC the main reason it got renamed to Punctuated! For! Emphasis!.

I did a little bit of work on this, changing to Punctuated! For! Emphasis! when it's listed as a trope and potholed in a quote and deleting it anywhere else. It's at 1820 right now.

I did a few more. Down 1782.

I like this webcomic.
I may be adding more links to this as I'm deleting ptitle markup. Quite a few people used that markup when linking to the old name.

All right, This! Is! Sparta! has been either deleted or changed to Punctuated! For! Emphasis! or 300 in every article in which it previously appeared (the decisions in each case were what seemed appropriate to me at the time, but were, I'm sure, not necessarily correct, so I apologise in advance for creating extra work for future editors)... with eight (formerly fourteen) exceptions, detailed below.

These are archives (EDIT: and so can't be edited):

These articles are locked (EDIT: but have all since been edited by lu and/or Willbyr):

These ghost wicks still return as search results for This! Is! Sparta! (EDIT: Not anymore they don't):

  • Remegy
  • The Chain Man

Finally, apparently someone used This! Is! Sparta! in a recent post to Lost and Found; either the poster in question or a mod would need to change it, I presume.

And can I just say I'll be happy if I never see the quotes "Complete global saturation" or "That is not my cow" or "There are four lights" or "I hate babies" ever again in my life... I must have run across all four of those at least a dozen times each, not counting their uses on their respective work pages.

  1. Ghost wicks are fixed by editing and if it's a blank page cutlisting the article.
  2. Archive pages don't get edits.
  3. Lost and Found is locked, apparently.
  4. I'll address these issues in the Edit Request For Locked Pages thread.

Complete global saturation

What is this actually from? I can't remember ever seeing it.

Thanks for the post response, Septimus; the ghost wicks are gone now, and I suppose of the twelve locked articles only Anti-Shipping Goggles, Nietzsche Wannabe, Seltzer and Friedberg, and The Lonely Island would need to be edited by a mod (the others are archive pages).

nrjxll, "Complete global saturation" is a Resident Evil 5 reference.

Looks mostly done, other than 10 archives. Nice work. Holler for an unlock in case it grows back.

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