Cleaning up ghost wicks:

I started listing the contributor pages here. These are deliberately not namespaced, so that we can see which links are red or blue. If you click on a blue link, and you see nothing there - then it means that the page is creating ghost wicks. This should be a faster way to complete the project.

Granted, this list isn't quite accurate - since many new members have joined after the migration, while some from before the migration are no longer members. But this should still be very helpful.

These ghost wicks happen because when Fast Eddie changes pages from the back-end (like the cut of the ANF and NF namespaces), the databases for Related pages are usually missed. We need to synchronize or whatever it's called these databases to fix the problem.

We also have tropers that share their names with tropes or works. Not all of those blue links are ghost wicks. I found this out when moving a work to the proper namespace recently; I discovered that it was linked to your sandbox.

Anyway, ghost wicks are pretty harmless in general, and easy to clean up when you stumble across them.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
