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.

Crowner velcroed to thread.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Calling crowner.
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?

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

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

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 title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
