Needs Help: Badass Longhair get usage counts

Okay, got it here. This isn't a trope I'm super familiar with, so you might want to ask for input either here or in ykttw.

I am not launching a YKTTW with just 11 examples.

Well, that's enough, really, but I don't think it's ready to go yet either. I think the real problem is that we don't have any examples of the long haired antihero type on the page.

I usually request ~20 examples. That way, it's easier to crosswick it after launching.

Is the YKTTW ready?

Not enough hats last I checked.

Barbarian Longhair is launched now.

Should we redirect this or turn it into a disambiguation page? With the number of wicks it has I think the faux redlink might help.

Disambiguate.

I suppose. I think we need a way to discourage people from linking to it in the future as well, though, since we've already agreed that it's not a trope and yet it has over a thousand wicks.

Proposed disambiguation page. Am I forgetting any other tropes that may need to be listed?

Too wordy for my taste. I prefer:

Badass Longhair can refer to several tropes:
  • Badass: For badasses with long hair.
  • Barbarian Longhair: A character has long, unkept hair to show their aggression, wild and uncivilized nature.
  • Samurai Ponytail: A character has neat, clean hair bound up at the back in either a topknot or a flowing ponytail to represent being a samurai and likely following the traditional samurai values.

Please change any links to point to the correct page.

OK, I see that Arha modified the sandbox to something less wordy, so I swapped it into Badass Longhair and turned that into a disambig.

I'll probably start the A wicks.

If we find a character that just has long hair, and is a badass, we remove it as misuse, correct? They have to fit the hairstyle of Samurai Ponytail or the wild/unkempt nature of Barbarian Longhair, right?

(edit: My question is assuming there's already a link to another Badass trope.)

Yes. Or leave it as Badass.

In uffish thought
Yes; it should just be shifted to the main Badass page.

Did A-C. Now only 967 wicks remaining.

Wow, you're fast. I was trying to do some B, since you started with A.

Yeah, speed editing has always been my strength. That said, you might start from the bottom so that we don't collide.

Yeah, we didn't bump in the B's because I was off taking care of other things. I'll head down to the bottom for now.

OK, did D-J except for a few where I collided with Macron Notes.

Also K-L.

M, now 453 wicks to go.

N-R done, only 340 now.

S done as well, 200 now.

Did U-W. Now only T left - 140 wicks.

And now T is done - and only 2 locked wicks (edit requests have been submitted), 1 ghost wick and the only wick that has to stay on Ambiguity Index, remain. I've also tagged the page.

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

What would be the best way to fix the page?
