Maintaining cleanups

Go To

This forum needs a thread to list searches on terms that we've previously done cleanups on, so we can occasionally re-check them and police any incorrect usages that have built up since the initial cleanup thread(s). There were a few links to Dropped a Bridget on Him that I had to clean up earlier, so let's get started with that.

I'll add links to this post as they're mentioned, and bring in others from threads in SE as they're closed up.

Both I Got Betterand Understatement had previous clean up threads and periodically gain wicks that need to be checked.

Discontinuity could probably also be checked occasionally. Courtesy link to the page itself, to see the tropes it's been split into.

[up] Good idea; that's added and the page for Da Bo H is added too.

Should this thread be stickied?

[up] Yes, I think it should, but for some reason the button's not working. I've asked Eddie to look into it.

Looks stickied to me. I also set the OP as a repeating header.

Repeating header? As in "the red box"? It's not up.

You don't see the "red box" until there is a second page.

The red box is still on the first page of the edit requests thread.

Should this thread be unstickied now that it's in the Long Term forum?

Yes. It needs to be linked in the directory - unless Speedy Nocturna already did it. No reason for it to hang above the other threads.

Only just noticed this thread - it does explain why I'm finding fewer new, erroneous wicks to YMMV and Your Mileage May Vary (I generally check for them at least once a day).

If I may, Main.AndTheFandomRejoiced and SugarWiki.AndTheFandomRejoiced still seem to attract erroneous wicks at a fair clip - there were at least four added yesterday alone, all by different editors.

[up] Added.

This thread's been added to the directory, so I'll unsticky it.

DarthWiki.Ruined FOREVER keeps getting used on the main wiki (because of its too-tempting mainspace redirect). I've done post-cleanup cleanups several times on it.

Pyrgos Pyronesia! Pettanko keeps being added as a trope even though it's an exampleless fanspeak term.

Dead Baby Comedy needs to be added to the list.

Have we done a cleanup for All-Blue Entry yet?

Rhymes with "Protracted."

As in, wiping off all All-Blue Entries conveniently potholed to that trope? No. Might be something for Short Term Projects.

Sliding Scale Of Anti Heroes needs adding. I just had to delete more wicks to it.
