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

~Eazy Cheeze, while the enthusiasm is appreciated, you might want to read over the Administrivia pages a bit more - "full stop" is not good writing in wiki articles.

Regarding Back To Black, yeah that goes in Music/ if anywhere.

Today's mixed reply- and worklist:

Mike J needs still to be indexed, anyhow, and I am disappointed that the creator of Analysis.Ni GH Tcap didn't respond.

My biggest issue is "noteworthy". Aside from that, the page(s) are just an index of Creators from a specific company.

I did some work to improve (well, basically create) the Åland Islands page.

FYI I made a post on Ask The Tropers about those bad Self Demonstrating pages... he made a couple. Please feel free to chime in there.

Jun 13th 2014 at 1:46:27 PM

I went ahead and put that...article on the cutlist, as well as that other one you brought up on ATT. I also hollered for a mod to come talk to him

I'm still figuring this out, sorry! Please bear with me.

I sent Septimus Heap a PM to this effect, so sorry for saying this twice! But I checked out other fandom pages before going ahead and creating the C6D page, and the ones I looked at were all in the main namespace as well. I don't really know where else to put it, at the moment? I've thought about it a bit since I sent my original reply, and the only places I can think of are Fanfic—which is kind of an awkward fit because fandom produces fanfic, not the other way around, and being in a fandom doesn't necessarily mean you're writing fic—and Web Original.

  • Six Degrees Of Canada looks like it belongs in Main/. It should also be used as an index of the works or thespians the fandom watches. The links need namespacing, and slightly more active phrasing could be used. Declare what the fandom is about, don't generalize or guess. I assume you're writing it because you're a fan. You don't need to guess, you need to inform.
  • Sacrificial Vile: I guess. Did the creator get directed? (Being lazy and not checking who the creator is)
  • Life Is A Game: the new page (Sudden Game Interface) launched with two hats. Not sure that's okay, but the page doesn't look as terrible as the original.

  • Studio Staff: Wiki Talk or Short Term Projects?

[up]Agree, agree, agree, not sure.

@Mission: Canon produces fans which produce fanfic, which can produce fans of the fanfic who write their own fanfic... It's a web of chains with no horizon in sight, and it happens to nearly every work in existence at some point. tongueEven the IRS has people trying to make stories up about its rules.tongue

Today's worklist and replies:

On the Studio Staff pages like Noteworthy MGM Cartoon Staff I would say TRS if it's a single page and Wiki Talk if it's more than one, ~crazysamaritan.

Self Destruct As Failsafe got launched. No hats, one example, ongoing discussion about the name.

Seems pretty cut-and-dry to cut and send back to YKTTW.

Uh, yeah. Calling ~Schol-R-LEA here for that premature launch.

You know, there's no need to create a new subpage for Persona 4 The Golden Animation. I say turn it into a redirect to Persona 4: The Animation.

Did what I could to expand the Persona 4 page. Not a lot of info out for it.

[up] Why do you say that? It seems to be entirely newly animated, thus folding it into the old page wouldn't really make much sense.

I'm going to ask on ATT for Self Destruct As Failsafe to be unlaunched.

If the tropers think it should be unlaunched, I won't object.

yeah, I just found that page and was gonna bring it to attention, but then I saw Larkman got here first. [lol] tongue Oh well, agree to the unlaunch

Today's worklist:

Also, The Necro Critic and its creator ~minikiss need a lot of formatting and Zero-Context Example help.

I've also cutlisted Sacrificial Vile for being a stub trope without YKTTW; ~One Eyed Dragon, if you want to still work on it feel free to do so in YKTTW.
