ZzzzzzzzzzMight want to add a note to that effect, then.
Seeking for LightI'll ask again: Can the crowner be called now? This thread is waiting on that to move forward.
Another Wizard BoyDid you holler?
Seeking for LightYes. When I made that post, and a month ago, when I last brought it up.
With Mod Hat OnCalling the crowner in favor of Lame Pun Reaction with a final tally of +14 (yeas:16 nays:2) 8.00 : 1 'That Pun Was Lame' Reaction (+2 (yeas:6 nays:4) 1.50 : 1) was the only other option with a postive final tally. Starring the thread; commence the moving.
Seeking for LightThank you! I've shifted the page and subpages, changed the indexes over (mostly—see below), and redirected Incredibly Lame Pun to Pun. The discussion page should be moved from Incredibly Lame Pun to Lame Pun Reaction. I wasn't sure what to do with the Incredibly Lame Pun wicks on two indexes: Pothole Magnet (I'm leaning keep, as it is still a pothole magnet, even if it is now a redirect) and Tropes of Legend (no clue what we should do). Discussion would be good. So, "all" we have left to do is go through the wicks to Incredibly Lame Pun and its two former redirects and switch any references to the actual in-universe trope to Lame Pun Reaction. I don't have time to get started on it now, but others could get going. Post your progress in this thread; I'll keep track of it in the first post.
ZzzzzzzzzzShall we put the Disco Tent image up on Pun?

Seeking for LightSure, why not? It's appropriate, methinks.
Another Wizard BoyI think that Tropes of Legend would be more appropriate when switched to pun.
Seeking for LightOkay, I've sorted through the redirect wicks.
Seeking for LightI'm working on the "A"s. Up next is FanFic.Aeon Entelechy Evangelion.

Another Wizard BoyDoes it make sense to ignore all the wicks that are likely to be potholes (i.e subpages, tropes not about puns)? I don't feel we have a chance of getting this done without making things easier. Whew, first post in the new year!

What still needs to be done here and how can I help to get this thread finished and closed?
Another Wizard BoyMove all the Incredibly Lame Pun wicks that should be under Lame Pun Reaction there, leaving the sinkholes alone.
So we are keeping sinkholes? That seems counterintuitive.
Another Wizard BoyThat was my proposition in the previous crowner, a) in order to make the job easier (it's a lot of wicks) and b) because the ILP page was created for the sinkholes in the first place and it seemed counterintuitive to change this.
I can do some this weekend, but at 8000+ wicks, I don't think this is ever going to get done without at least a dozen or so volunteers. This seems more like longterm project stuff to me.
Another Wizard BoyBeing a finite cleanup project, it looks like Short Term. I might be able to help, but I am currently busy with a worldbuilding project of mine.
Seeking for LightI have been working on it. But due to very limited free time, it's going s.l.o.w.l.y. Catbert, also note that any in-universe puns should be changed directly to Pun (Incredibly Lame Pun is only for troper puns)—although I will admit that if it's in a quote and the pun is obvious, I generally just delete the pothole—and that anything which would fit better on one of the subtropes (examples of Punny Name and Pun-Based Title are the two most common to run across) should be changed to the subtrope. And I would love to just delete the troper pun potholes, but unfortunately, that lost the ILP crowner, so it's not an option.
Is there a way for me to tell which pages have already been done so I know where to jump in?
Seeking for LightI've done A through Series.Bottom. You might want to start at Z and work backwards, as I have a tendency to work in ten wick batches, spread out randomly through time (a result of me using it as a break from schoolwork). I'm usually fairly good about updating the thread about what I've finished. EDIT: Oh, I skip pages in WMG/ and Headscratchers/, as they're 99.9% guaranteed to be troper pun potholes.

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