Not Tropeworthy: How Do You Like Them Apples get usage counts

 51 Noaqiyeum, Mon, 15th Jul '13 7:35:35 AM from a thought-experiment gone horribly wrong Relationship Status: Showing feelings of an almost human nature

I'm kind of confused over the fact that no one else seems to think that apples are used to symbolise temptation and unhealthy desire. That covers Eden, Eris, Snow White, Barbossa, Twilight...

[up]Feel free to write an Apple Temptation Symbolism YKTTW.

There are going to be quite a lot of examples from this page.
"I know I raised more questions than I answered, but I hope now we are all confused on an higher level and about more important things."
Then grab them.

Okay, YKTTW is here.

Ok, since examples are being moved to more fitting tropes, can we cut this? Do we need to crowner that?
Special trousers. Very heroic.

Added a "disambiguate" option.

Crowner's hooked.
We make this a disambiguation page? That will just make it easier for people to keep linking to it.

(However, if you want to YKTTW an index called Apple Tropes, sure, no problem.)

Disambiguation pages get dewicked after the disambiguation.

Sure, we'll dewick it either way. But doesn't the existence of the page afterward, rather than a clean red link, encourage further wicks?

Or if it doesn't, why would we need a disambiguation page at all?

I am neutral on whether to cut or disambiguate this. That said, I am not aware of a disambig encouraging wicks any more than redlinking does.

I believe it does, but I also think that's really more of an issue for very popular tropes. For example, Badass Longhair is up to 40 wicks again which is after I kept cleaning it for a fairly decent period of time.

I think that means those should be deliberately redlinked.

Move examples has 13 supports and 1 oppose, giving this one a score of 12.

Calling for the first fix.

OK, who is up for on-page example moving? I am no good at it.

I made a sandbox for example sorting: How Do You Like Them Apples?. I didn't do any sorting yet though.

It doesn't help that the trope Forbidden Fruit is not literally about fruit.

OK, shall we wait for this YKTTW to complete?

I'd like to bring to tropers' attention that the Tempting Apple YKTTW now has five hats. Could somebody please launch it so we can move on with this TRS?

I launched Tempting Apple because it looked to go and indexed it. I'll crosswick it later.

Well, example sorting is pretty much done and I finished crosswicking Tempting Apple.

I know that the crowner calls for How Do You Like Them Apples? to be cut but it has 114 inbounds. Maybe it'll be best to turn it into a disambiguation instead?

Page Action: Like Them Apples

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
How Do You Like Them Apples is not a trope, but merely a list of apples in fiction.
