Disallow wicks to Did Not Do The Research?

Note: This is the default/status quo of Did Not Do The Research


Rename Did Not Do The Research?

Pro: The name is misleading (the index isn't just about research not done) and is negative.


Merge Artistic License - Indexes and its subitems into Did Not Do The Research and hardsplit the examples by subject? Details about what that means are here and here

Pro: Despite the names, Did Not Do The Research is currently an index without examples while Artistic License - Indexes and its subitems are nothing but examples. No reason to keep the examples separate.

Note: The merged trope will probably have to expand its meaning towards both deliberately ignored research and forgotten research


Pro: While Did Not Do The Research and Artistic License are nominally distinct between "Unintentional inaccuracy" and "Intentional inaccuracy", in practice the former is applied to any inaccuracy (which is what Artistic License - Indexes and its subpages are) and the latter is used as a justifying rule even for Unintentional inaccuracies. Since Intentional and Unintentional are distinguishable only by Word of God and aren't distinguished in practice, it make sense to use the same page for all and leave Artistic License as a general justification. Plus, a trope named Did Not Do The Research invites general complaining.
