Misused (Discussing fate of old name): Evil Eye get usage counts

Evil Eye has three existing meanings off-wiki:
  • A curse ("the Evil Eye")
  • A glare ("giving someone the evil eye")
  • The literal interpretation of evil-looking eyes.
It is being misused as such both in wicks and on its own example list, and is being renamed.


Next round of roll-call: the new name. As before, we'll be taking votes for a minimum of 72 hours. The options: Vote [tup] or [tdown] on each option. For the sake of easy tallying and avoiding repeats, if you change your mind on something, please edit your original vote post (and make a new post saying you changed your mind if you'd like to post your reasons).

A pure disambig seems fair to me.

Piffy

I just discarded the Evil Eye YKTTW and I'll make Evil Eye into a disambiguation after I eat.

Evil Eye is a disambiguation now. So, last thing to do is wick-cleanup.

What do we do with the subpages? None fit the tropes very well.

Well, they all have been moved to Magical Eye(although the quotes don't seem to illustrate the trope well), so I guess we can cutlist the Evil Eye subpages since it's a disambiguation now.

One of the Evil Eye quotes is more Deadly Gaze, I think. The Conan one.

But yeah, snip snip.

Boom.

So what's left?

Wicks.

Bumping, since there still are 399 wicks up there.

Down to 307.
Still new. Still learning. Asking questions and making mistakes.

I took down all the remaining 300 wicks - save for a ghost wick, a locked page (edit request pending) and the Ambiguity Index. Many uses were extremely vague; some I've ported to discussion.

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