Follow TV Tropes
Since the creation of this tool (once again, I can't thank the administration enough for its creation), I've been taking a stab at correcting page types, and just completed the transition of several character pages from "sub-page" to "examples". As of now, there's more than a thousand Recap/ pages in "subpage" where they should be either in "examples" or "index".
I've been working at the same project, and so has Septimus Heap. Sometimes, however, I think we've been working at counter-purposes.
Here's the system as I have been able to figure the pages:
In my mind "just for fun" is a problem page type, mainly because of its unclear scope - I do not agree with putting Drinking Game and stuff like Inspector Spacetime there, the latter mostly for tech reasons though.
As for "contributor" + Main/, that's the page type I use for all Main/ pages that are for ghost wicks; so as to make it easy to list and cutlist them. There are a lot of them and thus I haven't done them all in one batch.
I figure "Just For Fun" pages are little games that editors play, but neither should be crosswicked anywhere. Indexed or Wicked (referencing the page itself), but never used in trope example lists.
Does that mean I can go back to batch cutlisting the blank pages?
I really do feel that the Drinking Games fit because they don't really list tropes. It's more of a game really, even if they're subpages for works...
The Drinking Game trope can stay that way (since it's treated as a trope anyhow). Anything listed under JustForFun.Drinking Game, I say all are "fun".

Originally brought this up in this ATT thread
Concerning subpages in Main/, I think most of those aren’t actually subpages.
There have been a few pages under the List/ namespace that seems pretty deprecated (I’ve cleared out a lot of those pages, including pages with their own namespace (and there was also the relatively recent Weapons.Destiny page), especially since much of that sort of information could probably be better kept on Wikipedia or that particular work’s Wikia site. A majority of these pages are pure lists.
Six of these pages could use more appropriate page typing, two of them are archives, and one of them is a “ghost wick” from the Ptitle system.
Note that nearly all of the pages that include the word “list” were created by Dragon Quest Z (who hasn't been active in over a year).
There’s also a list of Console RPG Cliches that go from 1 to 192. IMO, I think these could be moved to a Console RPG Cliches/ namespace and be made subpages of The Grand List of Console Role Playing Game Clichés.
Oh wow, that's a mess!
We don't muck with archives, but otherwise, yeah, I'd be in favor of cutting most of those, and doing something appropriate with the rest.
Alright. I add the lists to the cutlist, since that seems to be the most clear cut thing to do.
EDIT: There is also That Guy With The Glasses Index, which is typed correctly (as an index), but relates directly to these pages.

Notable Fanfiction Archives, and the two sublists from there, are not protected by that rule. I'm not really sure why they're even here. We don't "index" pages that aren't on this wiki.
Fair enough. I'm not sure how we define "official" archives, but it makes sense that just putting "Archive" in the name of a page shouldn't be enough to magically protect it from future modification or deletion. Especially since the word appears in some work names...
So...how do I determine if a page is an official TVT archive which shouldn't be mucked with?
I think all official archives are locked when they're created, and I think they'll only have one edit in their history.
Bumping, because... hoo boy.
More than 3400 Creator/ pages that are page typed as "work" when it should be "creator or person". And that was after I changed some of these to their proper place. Is the automated system defaulting them to "work" or something?

How well does it match the trope?
