YKTTW Crash Rescue - Fixing prematurely launched YKTTWs and pages:

Prematurely launched pages, pages that weren't fully fleshed out at the point of launching, are a big problem. Since these usually share several problems at once, this thread is aimed at re-running them through YKTTW for fixing - the usual fix - or cutting them if they are too bad.

Problems this thread deals with include bad names, not enough/bad examples, unclear description, no crosswicking etc.

For the interested, here's a list of recently created pages

Hybrid Robot looks to be prematurely launched.

Yeah. I'll go cutlist it and request unlaunching.

Also, Completed Fic. A cut request was just declined, by the way.

[up] Why was the cut request denied? That's one of the clearest cases of "cut" to come through this thread.

Alto Villainess appears to have been launched very prematurely. Not sure whether I should Cut List it or not. It literally is nothing but Zero Context Examples.

This page goes back to April 2012. Not sure if the time window for fixing is closed already.

So I should just cutlist it?

I'd say ~9 months is too long to qualify for this thread, even if that means leaving the page in question in the incredibly long queue for the TRS forum.

^ Cutlisting is an "absolute worst case scenario" action. Looking at the page it might be salvageable, at first glance.

There's no reason to put it in TRS. It would just deny another page a spot. May I cutlist it?

EDIT: Did not read your last sentence. So i should just not do anything?

It looks like a legit trope, but the writer had no idea how to flesh it out and our theatre/opera fanbase is rather small for Wiki Magic to work on it. It should probably be taken to YKTTW for fleshing out.

It is a legit trope.

However, we might want to consider merging it with Voice Types.

In-Character Commentaries got launched with zero hats, and the YKTTW has no description and the launched version needs help on its description.

I agree that it's a trope but it's just sloppy for the time being.

Seeking for Light
[up] Agree that it should go back to YKTTW.

World's Toughest Milkman
Ok, I'm not even sure what The Emerald Party is supposed to be, nor how long it's been around. It has no examples; I can't even tell if it's a trope or a work. It's listed on Politics Tropes, but the description sounds more like a work. It's a straight-up enigma. Yet, somehow, it has multiple contributors....
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.
Seeking for Light
[up] From what I gather, it's a in-character blog-story-thing. So it's in the wrong namespace, on the wrong index, and exampleless. I'm not sure quite what to do with it, though.

In uffish thought
We might try dropping JR Pictures a PM about what it is, since he seems to have made some contributions.

Postponed Question is an example-less borderline stub that might already be covered under one of our other Exposition tropes.

The Emerald Party goes back at least to October 2012. I can't see anything worth saving there.

EDIT PS: Oh, okay. It is supposed to be a work page.

However, IMHO, work pages without tropes are a rather iffy thing.

Seeking for Light
[up][up] I'd say (back?) to YKTTW with it.

[up] I'm not sure if we should cut that one or not.

Conceive and Kill needs looked at. The categorization is weird, and it was launched with no hats and hardly any comments (the only one of which that wasn't by the trope sponsor was pointing out that we have this already.)

Work pages without tropes should either get them or be cut. This site isn't just a list of works with a short description attached to each.

[up][up] I think the problem is that Black Widow's description is way too specific than the name implies. Right now it's defined as a female serial killer who kills her husbands for their money. It should be a female who kills their mate once they have no use for them.

I think these two are possible for TRS to fix.

After looking at Conceive and Kill, it just seems like the intentional version of Out with a Bang.

O' Allah, save Egypt
I just came across Lightbulbs For A Face, and while the title initially gave me the impression that it's about "Faceless Eyes for robots and Mechanical Lifeforms" (a la the geth from Mass Effect), the description is actually more "Glowing Eyes on a completely shadow/darkness-concealed face"; needs a rename fast. Currently at only one wick, zero inbounds.

[up] It seems more like a subtrope of Out with a Bang that requires impregnation/fertilization to occur first before the impregnated/fertilized female kills her partner.
