Yeah, this isn't good:

Odd Man Out found in: 13 articles, excluding discussions.

Since January 1, 2012 this article has brought 4 people to the wiki from non-search engine links.

Never mind that there are three examples on the page itself, and it apoparently has no YKTTW. I think the idea itself is tropable but it needs some help.

Hmm, I'm also dubious about the whole Type I/Type II thing. I think the description could stand some rewriting, and possibly a little broadening. It might be worth mentioning that this is very common place for one member of a romantic triangle to end up. A trip through YKTTW to gather some examples, once we settle the definition, might be a good thing as well.

Speaking words of fandom: let it squee, let it squee.

My inclination is just to scrap it. The page as-is doesn't offer anything of value, it didn't go through YKTTW, and it has no wickage. If the concept is tropable, someone can start it again from scratch in YKTTW—I don't think there's anything here worth keeping.

Rhymes with "Protracted."

Clocking due to lack of activity.

Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

I have no idea how to fix this. Nuke it? Put it through YKTTW? I'm leaning towards the latter.
