Not Tropeworthy: Too Good To Last get usage counts

The thing is that they can be mix-matched. The page could be restored as a Sugar Wiki page with unfiltered examples and a wick ban, or a main page with filtered examples and no wick ban. Discussion on what to do with the page should it be restored has no purpose if it's not wanted.

Having mutually exclusive and not mutually exclusive options on the same crowner is likely to cause a mess. Also, not all options would necessarily require a crowner. I would stay with:
  • Restore.
  • Disambiguate.
  • Redirect.
  • Cut.

We could add "Restore to Sugar Wiki" and the ever-popular "Do nothing"...
Special trousers. Very heroic.
[up][up] Works well with me.

^^We can decide that afterwards. As for @52, it's probably better to organize all the arguments in favour of disfavour of any option there.

The thing is, people may be in favor of or not in favor of different restore options. So it's possible that restore wins the crowner because everyone has their own favored restore option in mind, and then we can't get everyone to agree on an actual restore approach.

The thing is, that in that case the all options crowner will probably stall too, thanks to people upvoting their option and downvoting the others.

[up] That would only happen if there is no consensus to do something, in which case we can't really do anything anyway.

Yeah, I was arguing that @56's objection would apply to the other solution as well, especially since more options would leave the vote spread out farther.

So, do we go with @52?

Bump.

Can we stick to leaving only the basic choice on the crowner and the issue of other stuff later after the most popular option is selected? This was suggested earlier in the thread.

Like in @52? I approve.

Crowner made and hollering for it to be hooked.

I upvoted the "restored" option and downvoted everything else, for the record, as I do not see any suitable trope to redirect or disambiguate it to.

Upvoted restore (though as a Sugar Wiki page), disambiguate, and cut, in that order of preference.

This is Rain. Isn't she pretty? :)
I did the same thing as Mr. Heap. I think it should be a wick-free Sugar Wiki page.
I'm not LGBT. I just think Rain's really cool.

Apologies if my humor gets too painful.

I think it can easily be a sugar wiki audience reaction trope with examples and with wicks listed at YMMV sub-pages, provided they have context and are not blatant shoe-horning.

I voted to restore.

I am temperamental towards putting it in Sugar Wiki as examples can have both negative and positive tone.

I agree with restoring, but I think some rules need to be put in place to make more objective like So Bad It's Horrible has. A lot of those exampes seemed more "I just happened to like so I'm putting it here", and I spotted some pretty blatant and horrible gushing with nothing to back it up as well.
"It's not that simple. We are all both, good and evil, we have rage and compassion, we have love and hate...murder and forgiveness."
I supported the cut and disambiguate options.

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

Page Action: Too Good To Last 2
4th Jul '13 1:05:32 AM
What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
Too Good To Last is currently a redirect to Screwed By The Network.

These items list only the basic action to be done. Specifics and technical details will be at issue once a most popular action is determined.
