Spiritual Successor is currently linked to 236 creator page, mostly voice actors, coz certain people don't read the page and realise it applies to works not people. (X has the same voice as Y so he's Y's spiritual successor!). There's some valid use in the creator namespace, but it's a lot to sifter through.
Could use some help to clean that.

Geez, even if that weren't a shoehorn, that's so subjective it'd be an Audience Reaction anyway. I deleted a few of these recently but I'll put more effort into it.
It still has two redirects with over 50 wicks apeice. Hopefully we can fix those, too.
It's the plan. Still working through the main one for now.
Christ looking at those creators page is depressing. They have so many issues.
Hah, I didn't realize this was already going on. Nuke all of 'em.
On the bright side, I am pretty sure the redirect Spiritual Sequel is free (this type) of misuse. I doubt anyone started calling other people a "sequel"

I'm going through and cleaning wicks now. Most of it is related to voice actors (which also have paragraphs that are skirting this by listing their counterparts in other territories/countries), though a few are related to actors as well.
Did one person write all the voice actor pages? They all seem to have very similar formatting and paragraphs relating to the misuse of this.
EDIT: Got most, if not all, of the misuse.

Holy crap you're on fire man, and awesome.
They don't seem to be specifically one person, looking at the history it just looks like there's a group of editors who edit them a lot and copied each other's style.
Closing this, then.
