So a threaded discussion area for Hey, It's That X! would be for questions about obscure facts about works? Like, "that one song" or "that one guy"? I'm still a bit confused about if we even need a Hey, It's That Gun! but that's not exactly what this is about...
That is, of course, contributing to the proposition of the threaded discussion idea. I don't mean to imply that "of course it's going to happen" or something like that.
Well, sure, but the Just for Fun stuff is getting treated seriously and in some places becomes a really cluttered mess. It's a wiki game and shouldn't be on main pages and stuff. If trivia got the YMMV treatment telling you to keep it off character and work pages then it would probably be easier to keep this stuff where it belongs. However, since the wiki doesn't have that set up after all this time I assume that such things have either been forgotten about, are a low priority or the administration does not wish to do it. Thus, we're looking for alternate solutions.
Exactly. Without the little nagging warning saying 'Hey, this doesn't go on this page' when you edit people don't do it. Not their fault, really, since I don't think they even realize it works like that.
If we can get people to put things in the trivia namespace or the proposed one for Just for Fun (which could include other things like this eventually) and keep them there then that's an adequate solution and preserves the game. I personally just want them out of the work and character pages.
Also yeah, other things needing to be done is what I meant by low priority. I know Fast Eddie is busy with lots of things on this site.
You Might Remember Me from... is supposed to be when an actor does a major role, time passes and they're not known for much else, then they come back with another major role. For example, Unforgettable was promoted as "Poppy Montgomery, Agent Samantha Spade on Without a Trace, comes back to CBS".
I was responding to Mikuru and Septimus. YMREF isn't YMMV, it's another trivia item in the same family as Hey Its That Guy, but which has a much more straightforward definition and, from the wicks I've seen, less misuse.
Page Action: Hey Its That Guy 2

What would be the best way to fix the page?
Hey Its That Guy is a Trivia item defined as "An actor you've seen in other works, but you don't remember his name, just his face." We often misuse it for "Here are unrelated other roles played by this film's actors," the just-for-fun game currently covered by Role Association.
All crowner items will apply to the mirror trope, Hey Its That Voice, as well.
Usage stats between both tropes: 9,448 wicks and 2,657 inbounds.
