Transplant (alt titles crowner 8/27): Magical Database get usage counts

 26 Ghilz, Sat, 21st Jan '12 9:58:14 AM from The Moon. Or Canada. Relationship Status: Drift compatible
More tropes to include under Omniscient Source Of Answers: The Library of Babel, which might be split into "library of everything" and "magic library".

Do we want to make a rename crowner for this then?
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Tsundere pet.
Yes?

Crowner velcroed to thread.

I think that whether the contents of the database are about magic or not makes absolutely no difference. This is about the data you need to advance the story just magically being in the database.

No change needed.

It makes no difference indeed. Whether the data are actual magic or are improbably well working is a difference, though.

Plus, it's actually possible for a literally magical database to not be what's currently called a Magical Database.

I'm not sure about those YKTTWs at the top of the page, though. We may be making this unnecessarily complicated.

Yes. This is unnecessary refinement.

Well, there is a genuine problem - this trope is, basically, Omniscient Information Source, but is being used for literally-magical databases regardless of whether they're actually omniscient (or even particularly close). So a rename probably is a good idea. But splitting it up? Not really necessary.

It's a transplant, not a rename. We are making a trope about literally magical databases and another about Omniscient Information Sources.

We have consensus to act, is anyone willing to do the transplant?

Pretty the Fast One has ordered "no change needed"

^Read that better. The unnecessary refinement was about YKTTW, not the transplant.

^^There is an alt-names crowner waiting for you.

Here. I am sure I sent a holler about that.

Is Police Hot Dog Database also gonna get YKTTW'd/split off?

I assume we need a YKTTW for the magical database here, right?

^If that's the one that's "database of the supernatural", I'm willing to put it up.

Yes.

Alternative Titles: Magical Database

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the name will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of Crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative names.
