I'd say make it a redirect. Both "clock" and "hours" are terms that people are likely to use when searching for the trope.

Anyone want to help finish this clean-up.

Wait... Does this need a villain to initiate the countdown? Or it's totally just Timed Mission for non-Video Games?

... Does When the Clock Strikes Twelve have the same problem as You Have 48 Hours, except it's that instead being a PSOC with "48 hr countdown", it's PSOC with "countdown ends at midnight"?

Help with possible disambig and redirect issues!

Timed Mission is video game only.

When the Clock Strikes Twelve seem ok since it refers to a specific time (midnight) while 48 Hours was used for any given deadline, even if it was more or less then 48 hours, which is why it's being cut.

I've removed all wick. We can wrap this thread up.

Vote up for yes, down for no.
At issue:
The trope description defines a time limit of 48 hours (no flexibility allowed). Misuse is incredibly high, citing numbers other than the strict 48 hours.

The TRS thread has not reached a formal consensus on action, so the decision is left to a crowner. If cut/merge fails to reach consensus, the page/wicks will be repaired and a new Image Picking thread will be created.

How well does it match the trope?
