Draft for Administrivia.All Blue Entry, per this TRS decision

An All-Blue Entry is an entry, page, quote, image caption, or another element that is mostly or entirely composed of links to other wiki entries, creating an overly long chained Sinkhole. Please don't do that. Much like with actual roads, a lot of Potholes chained together is difficult to travel.

If you find such an entry, there are some steps you can take to fix them:

  • Remove any unnecessary potholes.
  • Rewrite the entry to focus less on blue (or red) text.
  • If you're not sure how to handle a specific entry, take it to Ask The Tropers or any applicable cleanup thread in the forums.

In a worst-case scenario, the end result may look something like this.
