I think making the franchise page a disambiguation is okay. I think I was told it wasn't.
A little more effort, such as a paragraph of description and three tropes common to all of the mediums should be satisfactory.
Well, it seems, from Trope Intersect, all three of the work pages share:
Tried to add all the entries into Franchise.Horatio Hornblower, but seemed really excessive...
Why does Sandbox.Franchise Namespace Correction have a section for pages that are being used correctly, instead of just storing the incorrect ones?

I assume that those are the franchise pages that have additional pages added that gives them the necessary three when they didn't have enough when they were created. Of course that doesn't stop others adding for their own reasons.
VideoGame.Hitman was moved to Franchise.Hitman while it has enough pages all the tropes refer to the games (and they are both acting as an index/the discussions are on the old page since the editor didn't know how to properly move a page). Should there be separate Video Game/Franchise pages?

Found Franchise.Marvel Rising of which the works listed on the page - only two have work pages and both are in the Western Animation namespace.
Just found Franchise.Digimon Universe Applimonsters, which although it has 4 works listed on the page only one of them (Anime.Digimon Universe Applimonsters) has a work page.
All of the works on Franchise.Grandia are video games, so VideoGame.Grandia should be moved to VideoGame.Grandia I and the series page should be moved to the video game namespace. I also think the images should be switched.

I have to ask on the VideoGame.Devil May Cry series as well. While I can see some comparisons to the Metal Gear series, being primarily that of games with their individual entries, the fact that DMC also has its own anime page makes me think putting it back as "Franchise/DevilMayCry" is a bit more logical. Granted, it doesn't have separate film/manga entries like Franchise.Resident Evil does, but DMC's anime is still a different media form.

The series seems to have only two media types with pages, while Franchise pages need to have at least three. It doesn't yet have pages in the other media types.

Nevermind. Final Fantasy stuff was taken care of through ATT.

Noting that Franchise.Super Robot Wars was made despite (to my knowledge) us only having pages in two mediums (and as prolific as SRW is in those mediums, I don't even know if there is anything in another medium).
I've reverted VideoGame.Super Robot Wars and cutlisted the franchise page.
Taking this to ATT, since this thread seems low traffic...
But, now that I've made Anime, and Visual Novel "MuvLuvAlternativeTotalEclipse", and there's a Light Novel.
Make that into a Franchise?
Also "MuvLuvAlternative" itself?? Since it has Total Eclipse...

Are VideoGame/, WebAnimation/, and Anime/ enough for a franchise page. I was just wondering about Tamagotchi.
Yes to both posts.
How much description should be on a franchise page? The Simpsons mostly lists the names of each work, while Tamagotchi has a short description of each work.
Which is preferred?

Ideally, a franchise page should have some informational content regarding the story(ies), but a minimalist listing of work pages satisfies the intended purpose (as a hub for all the related works to be listed).
Someone expanding Franchise.The Simpsons would even be appreciated, since the page was generated by someone who hates the series.

Any reason not to move Main.Sabrina The Teenage Witch to Franchise/?
It's got Comic Book, Series, and Western Animation?
Edited by Malady on Jan 13th 2019 at 6:58:32 AM
Needs A Better Description, but other than that problem, it looks like all of the pages are derived from the same work.
Franchise.Sabrina The Teenage Witch and Franchise.Josie And The Pussycats should both be made.
How about Franchise.Girl With A Pearl Earring?
It's got Art, Literature, and Film...
Hello. I've been thinking about making a Franchise page for BTS; aside from their Music/ page, they have the Burn The Stage series and movie (currently both in one page due to both being released as a Youtube Premium project thing and both being sort of barebones if both put in separate pages, which now I'm not entirely sure if it was the correct action), the BU music video universe and the BU-associated webtoon SAVE ME).
An alternate course of action is to leave BTS' page as is (until there are pages for their other associated works) and to make a Franchise page for the BU, which itself is kind of a transmedia project involving music videos, SAVE ME and other content. In this case I would have to wait until I manage to make a page for HYYH: The Notes (which are complementary literary excerpts released along with the albums and will be released as an official book in March) under Literature/, and possibly for some of the videos involved under Film/, since they're short films that are... not... quite music videos? It's complicated.
A problem with only doing a Franchise page for the BU would be that its content is directly linked to BTS' work, with specific songs, album concepts, concert VCRs, concept pictures and other content also being linked in some way to the BU story.
Another alternative would be doing both in the future, but I'm not entirely sure how it would work. Can Franchise pages lead to other Franchise pages?

It looks like those works need to be expanded some from their current content before a Multimedia Franchise page is needed. The original medium page can work as a hub page until then.

How well does it match the trope?
