Perhaps we need an MST3K namespace?:
I made recap pages for the two Godzilla episodes today. One of them has YMMV but there will be no banner until the recaps get indexed if I understand correctly. I will probably do the Gameras next and update here.
Smells of Alcohol, Tacos, & ShameAlrighty, worked on getting the page indexing properly and started linking things up properly. We're going to have a lot of red links to start, but that shouldn't make us any worse than most of the other recap pages. Question: I presume we want page titles for the shorts to mirror the episodes they appeared in (e.g. S 03 E 19 Mr B Natural, S 04 E 23 Here Comes The Circus), but what about serial shorts? I think there were only ever four, technically five since one was a short split into two parts: Season 1's Radar Men From The Moon, Season 2's Phantom Creeps, and three from Season 4, General Hospital, Undersea Kingdom, and Hired!. I made one suggestion for a title on the recap page(e.g. S 01 Serial Radar Men From The Moon), but it's easily fixed if that won't work for everyone. ETA: Oops, looks like we have some inconsistent names. Submitted a mod request for the Prehistoric Planet Recap so it's moved to match the other episode titles.

Smells of Alcohol, Tacos, & ShameAlright, Season 4 & 5 links have been updated on the recap page. In retrospect, what we need to do is take the tropes from the shorts and make them part of the episodes, too. So, I've removed the shorts and serials from the episode master list. They'll remain on Mystery Science Index 3000, of course. If anyone sees fit to do otherwise, that's fine.
AXTUCE MUN AXTE INCALI agree with you there.
Nice job D If anybody needs a link to the recap index: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000

I’d appreciate advice about an issue related to this project. There are a few film pages named using the title from the MST3K episode, which are now obsolete, unique to the MST episode or unauthorized by the current owner of the work. IMO these pages should be renamed with redirects for the MST title. Is this something that needs to be brought to a mod or particular forum? Or is it a matter of copying the page to one with a new title then reconstructing the wicks, links and redirects?
AXTUCE MUN AXTE INCALCorrecting a work's title—assuming that the old title really was incorrect in some way—doesn't need Trope Repair Shop or mod approval. It is indeed "a matter of copying the page to one with a new title then reconstructing the wicks, links and redirects". Although if the old article has discussion, you'll need to holler a mod to move that to the new page—that's the one part that only the mods can do.
In passing, I'd suggest a similar treatment of popular review shows like The Nostalga Critic...I've seen plenty of work pages discussing the review's tropes or treatment of tropes instead of the work itself.

I added content to 5 of the recap red links of Season 5 before noticing that ‘’all’’ of the recap page names were missing the Episode ‘’E’’. It’s been fixed but is a good reminder to verify everything while doing this work. You can see my progress on the recap page. For now I’m working on turning the red links to blue by splitting MST3K content from movie pages and putting them in the recap pages. Has anybody thought about how to handle the movie? Will this be a recap page or a film works page? Which index does it go on? Etc.

Bitter person in the shadows....This may be a dumb question to ask, but is there any issues about putting The Stinger quotes on the recap pages? Also, I think a link the recap index ought to be put on the main article, or at least merged with the other index, providing links to both the movie and the episode it was featured in.

Smells of Alcohol, Tacos, & ShameHmm...I guess we can add a listing to the episode page. I know on the Lupin III recap page, we're treating all of the feature films as Recaps, but have put them in their own little film section. The Movie would go between seasons six and seven, chronologically. I was going to add a link for the recap page to the main page once we got things connected up properly on the recaps to prevent bad links. If anyone wants to go ahead and add that, I say feel free. Also, thanks to anyone whose gone behind me and fixed links. After doing 150 odd episodes, they all start looking the same, even if you're doing your best to keep them correct.

Smells of Alcohol, Tacos, & ShameAlso, Krazy Kopter: I say go for The Stinger. Can't have enough of 'em.
I have been moving the stingers to the recap pages. IMO they don’t belong on the film pages but agee that they are right at home in the episode recaps. I too was going to suggest a recap link on the main page but that was back when we didn’t have many recap pages with content. I would also suggest a link on the Mystery Science Index 3000 page and already put a link to the index on our recap index as well. I made a recap page for the movie and put it in a folder between seasons 6 and 7 on the recap page. I also put a similar folder for the movie on the main index with a link to the This Island Earth film page inside.

Smells of Alcohol, Tacos, & ShameI went ahead and added a link for the recaps to the Mystery Science Index, lest anyone wonder what's going on. I think I'm going to go ahead and add one to the main page. After all, the more who see, the more who help. Also went ahead and started the pages for the first four episodes of season 6. I'll keep going on those, since I've got it handy at the moment. Anyone who wants to add to what I've already moved (host segments, missing tropes) feel free). Just a reminder for those helping with the move that we do need to check the regular trope section as well; there are sometimes MST3K quotes mixed in there that need to be pulled and moved to the appropriate recap page.
AXTUCE MUN AXTE INCALI do think The Movie should be in the Film/ namespace rather than the recap namespace.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
