Rename/Transplant Wick Cleaning:

OK. But what if it's incorporated into a sentence or long paragraph? Some of them look very difficult to extricate, especially without knowing anything about the subject.

Also, I'm seeing issues with namespacing? Troacctid reverted one my namespacing edit on YMMV Redirects, and on Pothole Magnet I saw a commented out note to "leave the namespace" because "this will be deleted." So is SugarWiki.And The Fandom Rejoiced getting the saw also?

Also, And the Fandom Rejoiced is itself a namespace with a bunch of media and work subpages. What happens to those?

In other words, I've gotten down to the ~31 that I don't know how to deal with.

YMMV Redirects is for redirects. Why would you namespace it to a page?!

Pothole Magnet is for pothole magnets. SugarWiki.And The Fandom Rejoiced isn't a Pothole Magnet.

[up]Because it lists And the Fandom Rejoiced as the target of a redirect. Or that's what it looked like to me.

Anyway, I'll stop now because the remaining ones confuse me and I don't want to piss people off by making mistakes.

EDIT: I tried to do some on Discontinuity but quickly found that many/most of the wicks left don't seem to be either Fanon Discontinuity or Canon Discontinuity. Some of them are trope distinctions pages, some are archives that I'm sure shouldn't be edited, some aren't English. But some are:
  • Using the word to refer to when two episodes/chapters/whatever within a work contradict each other. Isn't this some other trope?
  • When a fan-work contradicts something in canon.
  • Embedded in a paragraph without indication of whether it's canon or fanon. When Discontinuity is the bullet point, I move it to discussion, but that doesn't seem the solution when it's in a long paragraph under some other trope.

Added It Got Worse rename, as per here, it seems to be floundering on its own.
Don't ask me, I just fix wicks.

Wow, you guys have hacked away at 1100 It Got Worse wicks. Way to go!

Hacking away at Adult Child. Who's with me?

Well, I got Discontinuity down to 37 wicks. But somebody more knowledgeable will have to deal with the archived, memetastic, drinking-game-tastic, namespaced, and just weird remainder.

I'm working on BLAM Episode right now and I've noticed that while it is a YMMV trope, the new name Bizarro Episode is not. Is that intentional? It's going to create inconsistency in what tab the trope appears in once the wicks are all done.

I see the Awesomeness.
Add Bizarro Episode to the YMMV index.
Seeking for Light
For anyone who's willing to help, the wicks for Incredibly Lame Pun need to be gone through, with any wicks referring to the actual in-universe trope switched over to Lame Pun Reaction. The TRS thread is here.

There are 111 wicks for Media Watchdogs that need to be changed to Media Watchdog.

I have a question regarding What Do You Mean, It's Not Awesome? -> Mundane Made Awesome.

What, if anything, should be done with the wicks on translation pages? I haven't done anything about those wicks because I'm not sure how they should be handled.

Likewise for the I Read That As entry, which requires the old trope name to work.

Should they just be deleted entirely, pothole the new name under the old one (as I did at one point earlier today, though in retrospect that wasn't a good idea as it doesn't discourage use of the old name if people don't check the URL), or what?

Adding Bestiality Is Depraved (formerly But You Screw One Goat!) to the list.
Oppression anywhere is a threat to democracy everywhere.
I've got But Your Wings Are Beautiful > Freakiness Shame down to just 12 wicks, but I'm requesting help with the last ones. One's an archive, one's Lost and Found, a couple are lists of redirects of some kind, and one is a list of Italian translations, so I don't know whether those should be/can be changed at all.

The others are ones where I don't know how to reword the context. The new name has quite different connotations from the previous name and that makes it very difficult to use when the example has little context, basically saying "Alice says this to Bob."

^Done.

There are a whole bunch of articles under Main.Fullmetal Alchemist that needs to be switched to Manga.Fullmetal Alchemist. Is there any way to convert this en masse, or must it be done manually? Because I've just uncovered thousands of wicks for Franchise.Fullmetal Alchemist (which is also wrong, but more recent), which begs the question of whether some had been previously moved en masse before.

Should we add Nietzsche Wannabe to the list? It was redirected to Straw Nihilist as per Nietzsche Wannabe Discussion.

[up]Wait, whose idea was this? It's not inherently a trope about strawmen.

I Got Better needs adding: It's gained 105 wicks since it was cleaned out.

I think it has been implied that we are not allowed to remove wicks from certain pages. Which pages are out of bounds besides archives?

[up]Bump

I don't know of any, besides archives.
