So, this is my first attempt at making a TRS thread under the new approval system - let's see if this works.

The article The Vampire Diaries Other Characters has come up in the Long Term Projects forum because it's got 533662 characters and is thus above the size limits for wiki pages. When I was about to split it, I noticed that the page isn't indexed and that it's apparently an orphaned subpage, with the actual active subpages being listed on The Vampire Diaries. And sure enough, all characters on The Vampire Diaries Other Characters are already listed on the The Vampire Diaries pages which are the active pages.

Thus, I propose to either cut or redirect The Vampire Diaries Other Characters since it's an orphaned subpage over the wiki's size limit and all its content is already on the various The Vampire Diaries pages, which are the active pages. Opinions?

If it's oversized, orphaned, and a duplicate, the only reason to not cut it completely would be inbounds. If it has more than a few, it should be blanked and redirected to the correct page.

Just make sure that the tropes lists and examples are also duplicated, not just the characters.

'He strutted across the bedroom, his hard manhood pointing the way' sounds like he owns a badly named seeing-eye dog. 'Sit, Hard Manhood!

Welcome to Draven tropes!
I count 24 inbounds.

I see that ~annette12 already moved the page content off to the "Introduced in season X" pages, to the point that all content is now in its proper place.

So the only remaining question is whether to cutlist or redirect the current page. Personally, I don't think that 24 is too much to lose.

Welcome to Draven tropes!
I suggest cutting.

I agree with cutting

Cutting was rejected, so we should probably go for a plain redirect to the main character page.

It has too many inbounds (34) to cut. Use it as a pointer page to the correct page[s].

Done, deindexed and tagged.

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