Go To

This thread is for people asking for assistance with crosswicking of pages that have far less wicks than on-page examples or references to other pages.

Lending a hand. Hitting wicks to the proper namespace.

Robin Hood The Legend Of Sherwood has a trope list, but it's barely crosswicked.

Spotted in passing: The Beyonders has nearly 70 tropes but only 13 wicks (including indexes). The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica has 46 tropes, but only 12 wicks.

Company Town was repurposed to match the traditional meaning (was previously used for the purpose what's now Set Behind the Scenes), but needs work page wicking, and I'm a little short on free time at the moment.

I've noticed that people sometimes do not cross-wick their newly launched tropes. If you want to help, here are some of them:

I moved these pages and noticed that they never had any wicks outside indexes, despite some healthy trope lists:

Systems of Entertainment at 27 out 3 in. Animation/Kodama at 9 out 2 in. That Long Haired Creepy Guy at 24 out 5 in.

Also How to Move a Page told me to turn the Main pages in to redirects so I did, but should I just cutlist them since we're trying to move past that and they're not being used? And if so should we change the Administrivia page to reflect cutting Main when the wicks are cleaned? Because it tells you to clean the wicks and then keep Main anyway.

Pick your choices. I usually cutlist Main/ pages of workpages I namespace when there is less than 10 inbounds, but it's not a policy. And trope renames usually warrant a redirect.

[up][up][up]Oh. It was my first trope that I launched. How do I do that? Pot Hole? Add the trope to works that got examples?

Also, what about Paying in Coins? Same thing? or rely on Wiki M Agic?

Examples should exist on both the work and trope page.

[up][up] Crosswicking a trope means that you go to the work page of each example listed and put the example on the work page. This way, the example is visible on both the trope page and the work page.

For example, if the page had an example like so:

  • In Work X, the vending machine yada yada yada...

you would go to the page Work X and add the example:

Crosswicking a work is the opposite (going to each trope on the work page and adding the work's example).

All works and tropes are supposed to be crosswicked. (In reality, that doesn't happen, but it's the goal.)

Excessive Steam Syndrome. Just got a trope merged into it per TRS, should have more wicks.

Newly launched by me (didn't write it) I don't have time to crosswick it properly so I'll put it here.

Office Romance. It's been launched for quite a while and I never noticed it's not cross-wicked. Not "my" trope but it caught my eye already in YKTTW. I put on two indexes, but it could use more of them. Thank you!

Trivial Title is a recently launched trope that no-one bothered to crosswick.

I'd like to have your kind help on Lobotomy. I took it through YKTTW when its OP abandoned it. There is really lots of examples.

I've just namespaced FanFic.The Unofficial MK Vs SF Saga, but it had so few wicks, I think it could use some crosswicking.

Star Wars: Crucible and Star Wars: Red Harvest have a number of tropes in their respective pages, but they need a lot of wicks.

Anyone want to take on Armored Dragons just out of YKTTW? I'm creatively exhausted right now.
