Post 54 in this thread implies that we are not allowed to change translation index wicks.

Sure we are. If you have doubts, just post here.

They were implying that they didn't know about how to deal with these wicks.

The only page other than archives that should not be edited under any circumstances is BRIAN BLESSED, and that's to avoid ruining some discontinued markup. Everything else that shouldn't be touched is an archive of some sort, though a few may not be properly labeled as such.

This is not strictly rename-related but every time I look at "Health Food" (a redirect) I keep thinking we need to Kill It With Fire. What topic do I post that in?

Cut List. Or, you could make a YKTTW that has that name if there is a trope for that.

It's some spot usage here and there, but the name is so ... terrible....

Power of the Storm was fiat-renamed to Weather Manipulation. I've just made all the record keepings, but some wicks still need changing.

A decision was made a few months back to change the definition of Refuge in Audacity. Due to a confused and confusing description, it was being used, essentially, to refer to any time a person or work of fiction did anything audacious (often being used in place of Crosses the Line Twice). The trope description's now been changed so that it's only about when someone is able to do something they'd normally not be allowed to do because their actions are too audacious and over-the-top for anyone to believe, comprehend, or otherwise react normally to.

The trope page itself and its examples have all been cleaned up, but it's got roughly 3000 wicks, many of which are now cases of misuse or zero context examples. I've been cleaning up wicks starting at the bottom of the wicks page and working my way up, but due to the sheer number of wicks and how many of them are Pot Holes or otherwise not part of an alphabetical list . . . well, it's difficult.

So far I've taken care of all the wicks listed on a work page's trope list from Z to S. If someone would like to start working from A on down and meet me somewhere in the middle (or do a more thorough cleaning of the pages I've already gone past) it would be deeply appreciated.

Over the past few days I've been working on the Sdrawkcab Name split into Sdrawkcab Alias. When I started, it said that it needed to be done from L onwards. I've since gone through L-Z and fixed those that appeared to fit into Sdrawkcab Alias. One thing I *didn't* do is change all the Alucard references, as I wasn't sure if those should all be linked to Alucard or if a link to Sdrawkcab Name was still acceptable.

Given that it says "When Alucard is Dracula, this is a subtrope of Sdrawkcab Alias.", I'd say that all Alucard vampires need to become Alucard.

I like doing these when I'm bored and don't know what else to work on. evil grin

I'm working on Kuudere. Up to M, though I suspect most of those letters had already been done and were just wicks that had reappeared, because there are many more from M on. There are a few that I'm not sure what to do with.

Went through the TRS wick cleaning page and stamped out the last wicks for Estrogen Brigade Bait.

Also, Bigger Bad has 3000+ wicks that need moving. Added it to the page.

Edit: And now Needs More Love is resolved. All the wicks were either blank pages or ghost wicks, so they have been cutlisted.

Trying to work on The Dev Team Thinks of Everything. Will need help, as there are more than a thousand wicks.

After a discussion with some of the other staff, since it encompasses several TRS projects and may house some more stalled cleanups, moving to Long-Term.

Not sure if this is the correct place, but Place Beyond Time had a single redirect wick to Suspiciously Specific Denial/Webcomics, which i edited out for the main one. The redirect is too trivial, could that be put in the cut list?

Rather than starting new threads for stuff that was already cleaned but keeps getting wicks, should we post to here? Asking because of Sure, Why Not?, which I'll include here so I don't totally forget about this...

Sure, Why Not? (now known as either Ascended Fanon or Sure, Let's Go with That) was cleaned up in 2014 but it has gained almost 40 wicks since then. I figure starting a new thread would be pointless, but I do want to tackle these wicks when I have time (what with RL stuff limiting what I can continuously do at the moment).

Hell of a bump buut

Mismatched Eyes has grown to 750+ wicks since it was disambiguated and cleaned up years ago. Would like to see if I could have help cleaning them (again).

Many of these haven't been completed. I'll try to work on Bigger Bad and Finger-Tenting, but I'll need some help with the definitions and disambiguations of some of the other unfinished projects mentioned here.
