Pages that Need Crosswicking

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.

[up] - All newly launched tropes should get a crosswicking such that they don't go on Pages Needing Wicks.

I haven't added the new tropes to there, but I have a list that I stopped.

Like, check page three on: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/launches.php?page=3

EDIT: Actually, page two, currently, from New Friend Envy onwards: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/launches.php?page=2

I know. Was too busy to fully wick yesterday. Hoped for some help (still learning the ropes). Sorry.

Also: "Like, check page three..."

Please don't "like" me.

[up] Stock Star Systems is not your draft by the way, and you're asking to crosswick on a launched trope that is not yours.

It should be unlaunched and de-wicked at further notice.

What I don't understand, is the purpose behind these rules (no rogue launching, immediate dewicking and deletion, no wicking on a trope that's not your own). Could someone explain the reasoning WHY they were put in place? Could someone also kindly explain WHY the page must be removed? It was "ready to launch" in the words of the page creator themselves (whose name I forget). I have added a better quote AND assisted in crosswicking (lightly however). To undo this is counter productive and would be contrary to the great mission of TV Tropes.

[up] Because launching a draft you didn't help develop is rude. TLP drafts take a long time to make. Sponsors and contributers spend ages just to get their drafts up to a launchworthy state; they reserve the right to do the launching, to present the idea to the wiki after their hard work. Snatching the draft away at the last minute isn't cool, and it's worse if the draft isn't properly crosswicked or was even properly ready to launch (5 hats =/= ready for launch in all cases. Every draft is different) because then you're stealing someone's idea and not even putting in the time to do so properly.

So the page was unlaunched. Fine. No hard feelings. But I'd like a troper to answer me about those rules.

Also, is there a forum on changing TV Trope rules were I can take my last post for further discussion?

Fine, fine, fine. I'm in the wrong.:( But I'll still have my account and do things according to the rules, so, to use a Stock Phrase, this won't be the last of me!

Chill. All we're saying is that you need to obey the TLP rules. If you want to help launch drafts, make sure to contribute to them first, and make sure there's consensus to launch.

The worst that happens with rogue launch are TLP bans, where at Edit Banned the mods tell you what I just did and let you go. As long as you get it, there's no problem.

[up]And to add, do not panic if you get suspended. Just explain what you did wrong, and they'll release you. Evading your suspension will lead you to a permanent ban.


In the meantime, since, so far, we don't have a thread for de-wicking, perhaps we ought to de-wick Stock Star Systems until it gets relaunched.

Some people get pet peeves for red links on trope lists, don'cha know?

Overly Long Hug (draft) seems to be Not Thriving in a sense. Not sure if I could ask to crosswick a page that has been rogue launched and haven't been touched for over a year.

I already addressed this at the Crash Rescue thread, but since the trope is so obscure, and was not under the radar when it was launched, it was ignored.

Animation Meme is on the Pages Needing Wicks index but I don't think this is possible. Animation Memes are self-contained and are unlikely to have pages due to their short nature. At most, an artist who does Animation Memes can have it on their page, but pages for individual artists are few and far between.

  • Abandon the Disabled
  • The Breakfast Plot
  • Rich Genius
  • Arbitrary Augmentation Limit
  • Desk Sweep of Passion
  • Inheritance Backlash
  • Duty That Transcends Death
  • Artistic License Explosives
  • New Friend Envy
  • Raised In Captivity (10)
  • "You Used to Be Better" Speech (6)

And actually a whole less page of recents needing to be checked:

https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/launches.php?page=2 (May 6th 2019) onward.

What is wrong with Desk Sweep of Passion? I launched this one and I immediately cross-wicked it to work pages. It has 12 wicks. Admittedly, it's not that many, but the trope has 10 examples, and 4 of them are from one work.

Hopefully the trope will prove healthy and will grow in the future. But I think it's unfair to list this trope in this topic.

12 wicks is rather low. I assume they just checked the "related to" tab instead of comparing to the on-page examples.

Speaking of rather low wicks, Simple Black Eyes still contain wicks even though it's been unlaunched.

[up] - Policy is the comment them out, but I personally feel like leaving it, if we can push it to launch quickly enough.

I just made Chadam, and I'm planning to crosswick, but I also need to sleep first— so, I'll leave it here, in-case anyone would like to help out.

I remember when I just started out troping, and kept receiving messages from Septimus Heap to cross-wick the work pages I've created.

However, my approach generally involves organizing the tropes I crosswick to alphabetically while I am at it, and then expanding the trope page through its related links, so I don't think I've ever fully crosswicked a work I created because of how long such an approach takes. I did get pretty good at indexes, though.

[up] Well, cross-wicking is mandatory. For tropes you launch or for works you launch. In short, it's your responsibility to get the Wiki Magic started. Unless you ask others for help and they agree to do part of the work as courtesy. It doesn't have to be done immediately, but one shouldn't wait for too long either.

Parody Product Placement was just launched. If anyone wants to help crosswick, I'd appreciate it. There are a lot of wicks, mostly in the Comic Book folder, and I'll only be able to do a few at a time.

Some of them are transplanted examples from Delicious Fruit Pies, so those just need to be swapped out for this trope.

EDIT: Comic Strip and Fan Work wicks are done.
