TLP Crash Rescue - Fixing prematurely launched TLPs 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

Guys, can this discussion please be taken to the draft itself?

Would still prefer this on the draft since that's what people at the TLP actually look at, but yeah, we need to talk anyway.

Can anyone check High-Five Left Hanging (draft here)? The launch date was scheduled today, but the launcher (Dacool1here) wasn't the OP. Seems the launcher commented only once when launching this, and I asked him if he was given permission to launch this.

UPDATE 1: The launcher told me that they couldn't remember, and it was only hours ago.

UPDATE 2: Mage Born of Muggles (draft) was launched by JJHIL 325, who only commented once. The OP managing the draft is still active.

I've unlaunched High-Five Left Hanging per a request by Dacool1here that I received over PM; it seems like it was a mistake on their part.

Burning Scenery was just launched — by its original sponsor, admittedly, but without warning and with a net 3 hats, so I'm thinking it's too early.

Description is weird (why are some tropes in quotations?) and the fact there's no mention of Damage Is Fire is a clear oversight.

Also not a fan of the name.

... also not sure if it adds anything that isn't covered by the tropes it's trying to be a supertrope to. The quote leads me to think it's another trope altogether.

So yeah. Send it back.

Hello. Sorry if I'm botehring with you guys since I don't normally visit and engage with this thread but I'm just saying this because Our Pixies Are Different Launching Soon's title was added with Launching Soon since I'm guessing the OP didn't edit the title when they are about to launch it.

As explained here, Mage Born of Muggles has been rogue launched. Could someone fix it?

The launcher is the draft owner. Maybe a stern PM will suffice after the unlaunch.

Edit: Hmmm, ATT did say someone else launched it. Hmmm. I swore I saw the launcher being listed as the draft's OP...

@louisent31, apologies that was my fault. I did it from my phone and forgot to change the name. Can a mod please move Our Pixies Are Different Launching Soon to Our Pixies Are Different please?

Mods can unlaunch it so the page can be relaunched to the correct name.

In fact I can launch it to the correct name.

Update: Draft title is fixed, so it should be ready.

Regarding Mage Born of Muggles, it was relaunched by the OP mere hours after it was rogue launched the first time.

Humanoid Vs Reptile launched with a single net hat and unresolved disagreements over the trope's concept and description.

Also, I apologize in advance if I used this image of Trope-tan on the aformentioned pages I pointed out taken as an inspiration from this meme..

How is the image by the way?

Is there a minimum time break before an unlaunched trope can get relaunched? Beyond Redemption was relaunched by the OP King Lyger, hours after it was unlaunched, and telling me that he relaunched it due to the hats.

Why would there need to be? If a launch is valid, it's valid.
