This guideline seems entirely disposable now that ptitles are obsolete:

  • If your page has a ptitled name, make sure you create a non-ptitled redirect, and launch to that. That way, you avoid having to launch multiple times because you can't link to ptitles in the launcher except as ptitles.

I also don't think that the old system worked quite as intended. When I launched Let's Just Be Friends and assigned it a ptitle, people on TRS were wondering where the new trope came from.

What do you mean? Also, can anyone tell me what a "blank launch is"?

The post is no longer relevant (the entry is long gone, and the ptitle system longer gone). I can have a crack at explaining it, but that might get long, knowing me.

A blank launch is when you hit "launch" on a YKTTW draft but don't create the page. Making the page has to be done manually, so some people do that first and then officially launch the draft, as this avoids redlinks on the launch list (which are the result of blank launches).
