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

It's a work page in the wrong namespace and needs a lot of other work, but that's not really our purview. Works pages are only required to have a description and three tropes; they should really only be brought here if they're lacking one of those. Otherwise, just PM the creator.

Dying Moment Of Funny — Trope stub that needs a YKTTW or just a cut.

Interrogation Montage isn't a crash, but it seems to have a rather short description and examples list, and launched with 4 hats.

Dying Moment Of Funny: I say cut without prejudice (if someone wants to take it to YKTTW, they can).

Interrogation Montage: Barely viable, I think it could really benefit from more YKTTW. Send it back.

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

Funny Terrain Cross Section - no hats, 2 sentence description, 7 examples, 1 index and no wicks

[up]That's my feeling too.

The Lady And The Vamp bypassed YKTTW - it seems to be nothing more than a short list of het vampire romances disguised as a trope. I'd say cut it.

[up] I'd say cut and PM the creator about YKTTW, so they can take it there if they want to.

Looks like a character page, which is only one part of my "so much wrong" comment.

I think it's actually a videogame.

Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights

Looks like it's about that video game ie a work page, but it might still be a character page.

Moralistic Fallacy has been created with no YKTTW and doesn't have any examples either.

I'm not really seeing the tropiness, so to speak, of [up][up] either, even after reading the trope to which it's supposed to be an antonym.

No YKTTW, no examples, no index, no reason to keep it around. +1 to axe it.

I stumbled upon a work page that seemed rather incomplete. Demon Envy has a stub for a description, and merely a single trope listed. I have no familiarity with the work in question, so I'm not of much help in expanding it.

Echoing Lu's sentiments, and noting the lack of an index, no apparent YKTTW, and a spelling error in the title to boot. +1 to torch.

Edit: Also probably ought to bring up The Homer linked on the page. No YKTTW, only 2 examples (one of which is a ZCE), bad name, stub of a description, no index.

Chucked it on the cutlist. I only mentioned it here because a) I had to attend other business and b) to get enough votes for its cut.

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?
