YKTTW Crash Rescue - Fixing prematurely launched YKTTWs and pages

Go To

Prematurely launched pages, pages that weren't fully fleshed out at the point of launching, are a big problem. Since these usually share several problems at once, this thread is aimed at re-running them through YKTTW for fixing - the usual fix - or cutting them if they are too bad.

Problems this thread deals with include bad names, not enough/bad examples, unclear description, no crosswicking etc.

For the interested, here's a list of recently created pages. Launches

trumpton360 matches IP addresses with Kitchen 90, who was banned for rogue launching. We have a ban evader, folks.

Bouncing; will unlaunch the lot.

[up] Thanks. Was he really banned? Kitchen 90 edited the wiki just a couple days ago.

Health sure is versatile. It's possible to be both light-headed and dim-witted. At the same time, no less.

The ban was just from TLP.

Read This And Run and To Survive The Labyrinth were created with one line description and no tropes, sent stub notifier - though the pages were created by two separate accounts, the works are by the same author and the pages were made within minutes of each other strongly suggest it they were made by the same editor

Checked IP addresses, and there's a positive match. Will inquire with the staff about their fate.

Edit: Just going to PM them.

Hatdom Heresy was launched with 5 hats and no warning.

OP didn't contribute to the discussion in any way, and several posts call it out for having a bad name. Which it is. Because it's both a snowclone and easily misconstrued. Since OP didn't contribute to the discussion, obviously those went unaddressed. Also, it might be covered by Individuality Is Illegal. Can we have that unlaunched?

I could have sworn we just had another troper with that same pattern of not contributing and then launching without any notice or warning.

Regardless, I agree that it should be sent back. Given the first sentence in the description, it's purposefully named in such a way as to be a pun off of "Hatedom Heresy," which isn't witty or clear at all.

[up][up] Back in the day that was Cave Cat's MO. That and the fact the first example here was from a Western Animation work kinda worry me, but I'm probably just being paranoid.

Mecha Idle Position was launched with five hats and one bomb.

And I can't really put my finger on it but it's just overall not a very well done draft. May have to do with the fact it's almost 7 years old, but the title, description, and examples just aren't very... good, IMO, and I'm not entirely sure how much it is an actual trope.

EDIT: Accidentally reversed hats/bombs.

[up] You got the hat/bomb numbers reversed. Still, the net hat count is too small, so unlaunching and messaging the launching party.

SpoodMinecraftHardcore.Spood Minecraft Hardcore was recently created by a new account and was subsequently cut by another troper because of the wrong namespace and no examples but the it still has a orphaned character page, I don't know if another troper has messaged the page creator about it though I sent them a namespace notifier when the page was first created

The guy who just launched Invented Lingustic Distinction did so by accident; he doesn't think it's ready and he had a typo in the name.. He went to TRS looking for a fix, but of course, the thread is auto-locked. link

All he seems to want is an unlaunch, and I'm pretty sure we can arrange that. I'll PM him over to the thread.

^Hi.

It seemed well enough ready to launch since no one ever said otherwise, aside from the typo that is. I just need it unlaunched so I can fix that and it should be good to go.
