This is factionalism at its worst. Madrugada's suggestion sounds fair, although I won't miss them if they're removed.

Can you imagine how the complainers would react though? I imagine it will be... amusing.

It's easy, mmkay?
What ever happened to Lumpers Versus Splitters, anyways?

They're still around, but their rivalry never has been as visible or vitriolic.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

They're also more universal and, most importantly, they disagree on methods, not vision. So it's not as likely to invite vitriol.

Do you think we should have a multi-prop crowner to see which proposition has the most support?

Maybe, but remember to make a Wiki Development crowner here rather than Page Action or similar ones.

Oh...I don't know how to make one of those. sad

Made a blank crowner here.

For reference, you need http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/crowner_create_subject.php?desc=<Crowner type>&subject=<Topic>, fill in the crowner type and the topic in the URL, and you should get to the create crowner page - I've linked them on my troper page for convenience*.

Thanks! grin

I have added four options which have been suggested so far. Now we'll need to have it hooked.

I already hollered to request hooking. I also added a note about mutually exclusive/non-exclusive options.

Hookah'ed. Wait, that may not be the proper tense construction... cool

Already hooked! Mods are fast. And Fighteer's a ninja. Sca-ree.

I think Maddy's suggestion about consolidating them is the best option.

I disgree with cutting since no one has given reasons why cutting them is better than archiving or Madrugada's suggestion.
64 lu12728th Mar 2012 04:08:04 AM from 七夜 , Relationship Status: Loves me...loves me not
And now, people are putting the hostility back. Why?

The problem being that person is not the only one who did it.

True; I didn't catch foxmccloud4387 for some reason.

Think of the mooks!
I detect painful irony. The common complaint I see there is that the wiki is moving away from what it was... but all of that ridiculous complaining and bile is clearly against the stated goal of the wiki. Myopic fandom at its worst. I suppose it's true - you do end up becoming what you hate.

Seeing as those pages are about names, complaining about anything even though unrelated, is out of the question. Even if you espouse the FORKS philosophy, what does your opinion on the mods or Fast Eddie or gushing have anything to do with your belief on names? Methinks we need a lock.

Cutting seems more attractive now, don't you think?

The weird thing is, I actually agree with the FORKS position in general. It's unfortunate that many of them seem to be immature, whiny shits.

It's a pig...surprised*

I think a cleanup and lock will suffice.

Yes, he's very cute, and he'll also be made into pork chops, coppa, zampone, nduja, and all sorts of tasty things when he gets a lot bigger and not so cute.

I suppose clean and lock could work. Does that make the factions closed clubs? I certainly don't want to join any of them, just wondering.

I see the Awesomeness.
Is lock on there as an option yet?
In uffish thought
[up] There's an option to clean, lock, and archive them, but none for just lock.

[up][up][up] No, don't eat it! sad

If the current leading option passes, I think it goes without saying that comments will be removed, right?

At issue:
Some of the cutlery pages have been shown to attract vitriol. What would be the best way to fix this?

Note: Not all options below are mutually exclusive, but some are. Please exercise judgment
