Needs Help: Needs More Love get usage counts

Where should Needs More Love be indexed? As it is, it's listing only meta-examples, meaning it's not YMMV or Audience Reaction anymore.
Windmill, windmill for the land / Is everybody in?

I thought Needs More Love was a wiki message like Is This Tropable? or Needs More Examples. I don't see how it can apply to works.

It's an Audience Reaction. Please check wicks before saying it isn't.

No. If anything, it's Complaining About Shows You Like Not Being Popular, and even that's pushing it.

Is there a difference between the two?

"Not like" is really an euphemism for "hate" in that context.

Not watching =/= not liking.

In any case, I think this definitely tends to get used more as in post 2.

So it is okay to put "X needs more love because Y" on a YMMV tab?

Bump, because I ntoiced that it seems to be mostly identical to SugarWiki.Needs More Love

[up]In that case, why not just redirect to Sugar Wiki?

I was drifting away on life’s pitiless sea,

And the angry waves threatened my ruin to be,

When away at my side, there I dimly descried,

A stately old vessel, and loudly I cried:

“Crowner ahoy! Crowner ahoy!”

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

Calling crowner: merge into SugarWiki.Needs More Love.

[up]Did the page, but the wicks are outside of my reach (number-wise)

Do we even allow wicks to Sugar Wiki from main? I know we don't allow Darth Wiki.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

[up]Yes, unless we cut the /Main/ redirect.

Keep the redirect, so we retain the inbounds, but delete all the wicks. There's no reason for a legit page on main to link to Needs More Love.

But since people use the phrase so much to mean "this page needs editors, " maybe Main.Needs More Love should redirect to an Administriva.Needs More Love page.

[up] Isn't that "Needs More Wiki Magic" or something that I can't remember the exact title of?

However, can we can get a disambiguation made?

Thank you. In any case, I think that leaving the main page as a disambiguation seems like a better idea than simply making a redirect, simply because there is widespread use of "Needs More Love" for "Needs Wiki Magic Love".

[up]It's already a redirect, but I can turn it into a disambig immediately.

Bump. Is there anything left to do here, or can this be locked up?

There are still 844 wicks left.

I was wanting to make this into a disambig due to the widespread use of Needs More Love for Needs Wiki Magic Love - would I need to start a page action crown for that? Or is it the case that since there's also been a page action, we're just going with that, no questions asked.

871 wicks left here. Growing, not shrinking.

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