Random tech question: would a redirect to a Red Link be red or blue?
A Wizard boyA redirect is a blue link by default, although the redlink bug applies to both.
"Fetish Fuel" could be a sub-trope of common fetishes, one category could be Hot Parent (not Hot Dad, not Hot Mom, but Hot Parent, merge the two as a "Parent" trope, same thing with "Bumbling Parent", there is a "Bumbling Dad", but no "Bumbling Mom"). However, there are Bumbling Moms on TV, in movies, etc. There could be divided categories, such as "Hot Dad"/"Hot Mom" (on the "Hot Parent" trope article), and "Bumbling Dad"/"Bumbling Mom" (on the "Bumbling Parent" trope). Grandma/Pa, What Hotness You Have; Mr/Mrs. Robinson; could be categorized this way. Don't know if there is a spear counterpart for Stacey's Mom. Fetish Fuel, as I said, could be divided into categories, it could apply to "Hot Moms", but it is also applicable to "Hot Dads."
Everyone agrees this isn't a trope. What is the hold up on getting rid of this?
A Wizard boyLack of manpower.
Lack of manpower? What do we need to do?
Well, pretty much dewicking. We'll also need a mod to make it a redlink, and someone should turn the page into a disambig like with Hot Mom. I can handle the latter, at least. Sandbox for Hot Dad disambig. That look good to everybody?

So we can officially start dewicking? Okay. I'll do at least some, but by no means all.
I've been dewicking any I come across while dewicking Hot Mom. And just like Hot Mom, the vast majority are ZCE's anyway.
Anime-tedPersonally, I'd just edit Hot Mom to note that its Spear Counterpart, Hot Dad, also fits the definition, and then add Silver Fox to that list...no sense in setting up a bunch of redirects.

A Wizard boyI'd be OK with the sandbox, although I would use following as introductory text: "A link somewhere on the Internet sent you to this page. It may refer to one of the following:" and an ending sentence "Please change any link to point to the correct page".
A Wizard boyNah, I don't think that we need to mess around with Hot Mom. That said, I'll change the Hot Dad sandbox if nobody objects.
Go for it.
Seconded. Let's make this official and disambig Hot Dad.
Hot Shoujo Dad has been dewicked and put on the cut list. Also, to making Hot Dad a disambig page.

A Wizard boyDisambiguation has been done, sandbox and the now-useless Analysis/ page are on the cutlist.
With Mod Hat OnGot a holler about this, but no action's been taken yet. I for one am still not convinced of the need to have two separate disambig pages that are essentially duplicates of each other, especially since so many of the tropes are female-themed. Redirecting Hot Dad to Hot Mom, adding Silver Fox to Hot Mom, and noting the Spear Counterpart possibility of the majority of the tropes, or creating Hot Parents as the disambig and redirecting both Hot Mom and Hot Dad to it seem to be the most concise avenues.
Either way, there is still a bunch of wick cleanup to do before we close this thread.
Can anyone lock the Hot Dad page, similarly to the Hot Mom page? We can't afford any changes to the disambiguation defined in the red linked page.
A Wizard boyI see absolutely no reason for a lock, unless we fake redlink the page. Plus, the only edits disambigs usually get are additions.
A Wizard boyBumping, because I've noticed that the page is still a redlink. Shall we now lock it to keep it that way?
Anime-tedIt's locked now, and has been added to Ambiguity Index and Permanent Red Link Club.

We still need to dewick Hot Dad.
I have it down to 200 wicks but would appreciate some help. Almost all of these are a Zero-Context Example that can just be deleted wholesale, so it is really easy.
