Wick Migration

Go To

Jun 24th 2011 at 12:03:55 PM

Some tropers (myself included) have been moving works from the Main/ namespace to the appropriate namespace. Unfortunately, some of these moves were done without the wicks being corrected to reflect the new namespaces.

There are more wicks than any one person could handle, so I'm posting here in hopes of getting help. Here is a list of pages that have been moved and need their wicks corrected. (Let me know if you spot any others, and I'll add them to the list.)

EDIT: The list has been moved to Administrivia.Wick Namespace Migration.

Add completed moves in Completed Namespace Migrations.

Pinned.

Do continue to list other pages that need concentrated Wick-to-Namespace Migration attention in this thread. Also, list any that you finish.

What namespace should be used for Anime And Manga?

My instinct is whichever came first, unless one deviated from the source significantly.

Also, we're sorting the wiks for Starship Troopers, we've got a TRS open with progress, but nobody is really helping.

And where are Visual Novels supposed to go?

Looking at the Visual Novel index, it looks like everything is on Main/, except for Kichiku Megane (VisualNovel/), Facade (VideoGames/), and Galaxy Angel (Game/).

None of these are on the list of media namespaces. (Game/ and VideoGames/ should be VideoGame/. VisualNovel/ isn't listed at all.)

We might want to ask before moving any visual novels, since what we have now isn't consistent . . .

EDIT: I've updated the list to include a few more pages that need their wicks moved.

Add Power Rangers RPM, Pokemon Red And Blue, and Super Mario Bros 2 to that list. (I moved those over, along with several from the OP, and just made the mainspace pages redirects because I edit from my iPod, and there's no way to scroll in the editbox.)

This is a sinkhole.

[up] Make sure to leave an edit note saying why you're moving the pages to the new namespace. Either refer to this thread, the thread in Wiki Talk, or to the namespace article.

Someone didn't know about the namespace move and moved one of the articles back to Main. (I sent a PM and moved the article back.)

Should we do something more to let tropers know about the namespace move? There are probably a lot of editors who don't know about it.

And on an unrelated note, I started on the Doctor Who wicks. *

Apparently, I have gone insane.

Another one for the list: Main.Harry Potter has been turned into a disambiguation page, and the wicks need to be changed to fit the proper namespaces (Literature, Film, and VideoGame). The move's being organized at this thread.

(Apologies for the double post.)

another one, i've created a Literature page for The Stormlight Archive, all the wicks need moving and then a redirect needs to be set up. Also I accidentally broke the links to the crowning moment pages so those need to be fixed.

Jul 1st 2011 at 1:28:29 PM

[up] Added it to the list, and I fixed the redirects.

When you create a new page, go under the Tools menu and click on set page type. Then set the page type to "work". (If it isn't set as a work, it won't recognize the Crowning Moments pages.)

If you need to know how to make a redirect, the article is here.

Thanks. I'll remember that for when I do the rest of Sanderson's works.

Jul 1st 2011 at 5:36:06 PM

Subnormality, de Blob, and The Stormlight Archive are done.

Doctor Who is down to 5750 wicks (and falling).

Ok, I've finally gotten all of Wing Commander sorted out into its separate pages (VideoGame.Wing Commander, Literature.Wing Commander, Series.Wing Commander, Film.Wing Commander).

Aside from a few oddballs I may have missed, the non-VG wicks have all been pointed at the right place, but that still leaves over 500 wicks for Main.Wing Commander that should be pointed at VideoGame.Wing Commander (mostly, there's a few that refer to the entire franchise from some spot checks I did on the "Related" page).

Anyway, with Main.Wing Commander now being a disambiguation page, it's not a super-immediate issue, but I would appreciate some help changing the wicks. 500 is just a touch more than an afternoon project*

can reasonably address.

[edit]
I've fixed A-C on Main.Wing Commander, with the ones remaining in that range (Antimatter, April Fools' Day, Artificial Gravity, Atlas Shrugged, Back Story, Badass Furry, UsefulNotes.Belgium, TroperWorks.Bloodline, Call a Human a "Meatbag", Cat Girl, Cats Are Mean, Code Name, TroperTales.Crack Pairing Fandoms U-Z) applying to the franchise as a whole, not just the games.

Wicked can go on that list too. About 500 wicks at last count. Some of them are for the book and some are for the musical.

I started on Fablehaven, but haven't finished yet, so that can go on the list.

I've been slowly going through Harry Potter.

Jul 13th 2011 at 8:03:29 AM

[up] Good luck. I'd offer to help, but I've been working on Doctor Who. (As of this posting, there are 5059 wicks to go.)

New additions: VideoGame.Mortal Kombat and VideoGame.Quake. The namespace was changed from Game/ to VideoGame/ for both.

Ran into a small problem, aside from technical issues I'll probably address in TRS.

One Wing Commander trope, Nerd Glasses, refers to a CCG character card. The problem is that the WC CCG doesn't, as far as I can tell, have any other hits beyond the trope and the TVT's CCG page, which makes making a WC subpage for the CCG sound kinda silly (Rule of Three and all).

Would it be best to leave it as-is (pointing to Main), or point it at VideoGame.Wing Commander because the franchise originated as a videogame?

[edit]
[down] Okay, thanks. I was thinking that would be the case, but wanted to double-check to be sure, as I was kinda starting to doze off by that point. tongue

Peripheral merchandising materials can usually point to the original medium the work was released in unless someone makes a separate article for them.
