So, The Same but More is a Predefined Message about not splitting tropes between Trope X and Trope Xtreme. But it has significant wicks from work pages, and from a check of the upper 50 wicks it seems to be largely used literally rather than as the guideline.
My thought here was to move the page to Administrivia.The Same But More and disambiguate or redirect the current one to something else.
Obligatory wick check
I suggest killing the bad wicks. That alone might be enough to make the problem go away (as it will remove the monkey-see-monkey-do temptation). If they start reappearing, then it might be time for more drastic action.
So, this would force people to type Admnistrivia/ before linking to these predefined messages. Sounds brilliant. Way too many people just throw those into YKTTW's and threads without actually bothering to read or understand them. At least this'll make them do some extra typing.
That's because the Related function only counts wicks in the wiki. Predefined Messages are meant for discussion; any links on the wiki are likely to be incorrect. It was being used correctly in discussions.
Indeed. A Vitalising Edit, or however you spell it, can happen on any wiki.
To all the pages in the first bullet of 17: Why would any of those go in Administrivia/? None are policy or the like; they're tropes/wiki tropes.
The word you are searching for is Vitalizing Edit, and I was pointing out 17.1 as things that ought to stay in Main/.
The Search-Generated Index question was more about the fact that as-is the page only speaks about us, and is written like a policy page.
