'Cause its neglected while it would otherwise be useful!

With Inbound Watch, we clean up, monitor and maintain some of the top items in the inbound links section.

When editors are looking for a model on how to edit, most people go by an existing page. If the Example Indentation is wrong, or if there's natter, it's likely they'll think that to be okay and adopt the style. Maintaining the pages that bring in the most people will help alleviate that to some degree.

So, who feels like grabbing one today and cleaning it up?

Here are the top 10 items at the moment:

Hottip cleanup seems to be dead / finished.

Working on cleanup for Adam Smith Hates Your Guts.

[down] Point proven. Clearly, there's nothing to be done there, so I'm turning to this effort.

Hottip cleanup is waiting until Ed has free time again for a last hottip search.

I've cleaned two sub-pages of They Changed It, Now It Sucks!.

EDIT: I'm slowly working on other subpages.

Women in Refrigerators needs help, promptly. TRS is full as usual, but if somebody could keep an eye on it and squeezed it in, it would be great.

It has 4,353 inbound links and 94 mentions on the wiki, though some are in YKTTW. The page is in main, and the description is something between a trope and a work's page.

It's a work stub, to me.

Bumping the thread. Also, I tried looking in Series.Supernatural. The sub-page Supernatural.Trope Based Episodes is almost a list of Zero Context Examples.

I took care of Blue Orange contrast today. I did Seven Samurai the other day and it still looks good.

Hollywood Homely is done too.

I cleaned up Men Are Generic, Women Are Special, which had collected a lot of examples that deviated from the "male as the default" standard.

My alignment is Chaotic Cute.

Today's batch! It's kind of unusual because only 7 items can be maintained. Film and Character Sheets are indexes, while VideoGame.Video Game is a cut and locked article (I have absolutely no idea why people still go to it)

  1. Chuck Cunningham Syndrome
  2. American Kirby Is Hardcore
  3. Character Sheets
  4. Hammerspace
  5. Examples of Myers-Briggs Personalities in Stories
  6. Video Game
  7. "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny
  8. YMMV.Home Page
  9. Film
  10. Manic Pixie Dream Girl

Huh. I am guessing that people are searching for a general Video Game article (I am currently YKTTW'ing one here) and not finding one (I can't read most inbounds, though).
