Not Tropeworthy: Dying Like Animals get usage counts

ok, I moved the examples to a sandbox here, blanked the rest of the page, and put it on the cutlist. Anything else?

Mate, you need to clean the wicks before you can cutlist the page. Never blank the page either.

..;..sorry, first time cutlisting a page. So what do I need to do to clean up wicks?

Sort them between better tropes.

Also, does anyone mind if I move Sandbox.Dying Like Animals to JustForFun.Dying Like Animals?

not that I can think of.

Some of the subtropes need work, like Gullible Lemmings, which has a very small example list.

I've moved the page and indexed it. I've also added a no-cut request on Dying Like Animals as without the wick cleanup, it's premature.

I disagree with Gullible Lemmings not having enough examples, by the way.

Thank God somebody's fixing this bloody thing, we've had it for years now and it didn't make sense from the start.
STAND BACK! I TAKE LARGE STEPS!
Remember that Fighting for Survival needs to be fixed as well.

I think people are just waiting for someone to do te wicks. I'll look at it tomorrow but I can't promise anything.

So glad to see this so-called "trope" get put in the ground where it belongs.

Shame, like a lot of tropes that end up being put in the repair shop, this was perfectly fine as it was until somebody decided to start stripping all the fun out of it over some very minor quibbles.

Being hard to read is not a "minor quibble". Anyhow, JustForFun.Dying Like Animals is up if you want to add to it.

As long as one bothers to read the animal motifs in the analysis page like the description suggests there's no difficulty reading it, in fact it's simpler and more entertaining for both for the reader and the person putting down the examples to do it that way.

"As long as one bothers to read..."

Sorry, but we don't ask people to "Just go read that other page" just for our convenience. Being sent around pages isn't fun, after all.

Also, to be honest, it's a bit late to contest this outcome.

Trope pages on this website links to other trope pages related and necessary to understand the examples of said trope including in the examples themselves all the time, and T Vtropes would be the lesser for it without it.

I know it's useless at this point, nobody listened when I tried back when it wasn't even though I was correct so I took off.

Piffy
Writing out a more clear example takes one person a little bit of time. Writing an example that's meaningless unless you've already read at least one other page takes a lot of people a little time. If I'm on my phone, I don't want to have to load a whole new page just to understand an example. If I'm not on my phone, I'm only want to be opening new tabs for tropes that intrigue me, not for tropes I need to read in order to gain any meaning at all from an example.

My time is valuable. My patience is finite. My carpal tunnel is prohibitive.

Anyway, what still needs doing with this thing?

De-wicking.

 96 Larkmarn, Thu, 12th Dec '13 7:00:07 PM Relationship Status: Hello, I love you
X-Z are done.

Going through the wicks... I'm very pleased this is being cut. The examples are either sinkholes where "people die" or examples that are... well, just lists of animals that are completely meaningless without going to the damn analysis page.

FYI Just Ignore It has been getting a fair amount of use from me during the process. Just somethign to keep in mind.

I am not sure what your last sentence means.

so, what is left?

 99 Larkmarn, Fri, 13th Dec '13 5:35:25 AM Relationship Status: Hello, I love you
[up][up] Just a tip for other people doing wicks; Just Ignore It hasn't been mentioned in this topic so people might forget to move examples to that fit to Just Ignore It.

[up]A LOT more wicks.

Down under 200 wicks left ^.^

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
Dying Like Animals and Fighting For Survival have forced type labels with unusual names in the Analysis/ page, meaning the type labels are hard to find and the examples are written oddly.
