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

But seriously, next time, at least take the time to remove TLP tags and stuff...

Should we set up a crowner for Armor Meter/Points on whether to Cut, Keep, or Split?

Why are there two identical launched pages for Stock Medieval Meal?

Revolutionaries Who Don't Do Anything got launched while it didn't have a 5+ net hat ratio ( currently at 2 net)

Memorial Statue (draft) seems to be launched, yet the main page is empty. Can this be fixed?

That's all there is. There isn't anymore. YOWZA!!!

Accidentally made a Single Proposition Crowner for Armor Meter/Points...

Should we close it before I make the more correct Page Action Crowner? This is my first Crowner...

It's not like I can recycle it into a valid single question, like "Tropeworthy?", right?

It's quite clearly Tropeworthy?

It looks like Revolutionaries Who Don't Do Anything just got relaunched again. Was it any better to go this time than earlier?

It was at least 12-6 in terms of Hats-Bombs

Plus, remember how in Eragon everyone cries "a single tear"? Yeah, just try that with One Piece and see if it works

Turns out that the launcher has a wiki suspension.

Unlaunched again and asked them to visit EB.

Shawn Ri seemed to launch Plastic Bitch as soon as humanly possible, while debate over the scope of the draft was still happening. On the draft they said they did it to get it out the way, but it was still under discussion...

Better On The Big Screen was launched with a net 0 hats, ignoring some outstanding questions of whether it's tropeworthy.

Send both of those back, though I think Plastic Bitch might be accidentally acceptable (seriously, part of OP's reasoning for why it's fine is because they said it is People Sit On Chairs) but it definitely needs discussion.

Better On The Big Screen needs no further comment other than "net 0 hats."

Bowling Ball Whistle was launched with a net 1 hat, exactly three days after being made.

I raised multiple concerns when I gave it my bomb which went completely unaddressed by OP. No launch announcement was made.

So the page Memetics In Fiction got launched, but there are multiple things wrong with it in my eyes. First off, the description is barely a paragraph followed by a list of sub-tropes and a link to a useful note on Memetics. Said page could, just as well be re-purposed as the description and cut afterwards. The name doesn't sit well with me either I'd call it something like Cultural Memetics, because Memetics In Fiction sounds way too clinical

[up] Note that it was meant to be a useful notes page, until we decided the examples made it seem more like a trope. The bulk of the description was moved to UsefulNotes.Memetics.

What would be the best way to fix the page?
At issue:
Armor Meter Points doesn\'t match the other Meter and Points tropes like Life Meter and Hit Points.

How well does it match the trope?
