Transplant stalled: Cop Killer to Cop Killer Manhunt.
If it's about someone who hunts down cops, the former could remain. If it's officers going after a Cop Killer, it should become the latter.
I'm busy with other TRS matters, so leaving this Related page to sort through. Currently at 600+ wicks.
Positive Discrimination was moved to Flawless Token a while ago, but we still have 381 wicks.
A Man Is Not a Virgin is still in use on 49 pages.
Tee-hee, I moved over one on Characters.Please Tell Me Galko Chan today.
It's been about a year, and lo and behold there's nearly 20 new wicks to The Dev Team Thinks of Everything. It would be awesome if this could be made into a deliberate red-link so tropers will notice the change on their own.
Also I don't think anyone has mentioned the previous thread (link) so I'll link that here while I still remember to do that.

Dewicked the new The Dev Team Thinks of Everything (for now).
I have been going through the various threads regarding renames in order to compile a list of tropes and pages we need to work on. I have compiled a few lists into a spreadsheet here.
I've gone through the renamed tropes thread up to this post.
Saw a Completely Missing the Point wick when dealing with another TRS project.
1207 wicks if anyone is willing to take a crack at them.
Check Ask The Tropers: I proposed that the page be made a disambiguation page, a draft of which can be found at Sandbox.Completely Missing The Point.
The TF convo you are trying to link wasn't working or at least is not pointing to a specific conversation.
I think I know what happened; copying the timestamp by accident sends someone to Trope Finder, not the actual ATT query. I do it all the time.
Okay, found the convo.
Got pointed here to discuss TRS Wick Cleaning here... I forget where we discussed removing Fetish Fuel as complete, maybe it was here...
Anyway... Might correcting all the Image Boards potholes for Website.4Chan be done? 4Chan has 900+ wicks compared to Image Boards' 400+...
I think 4Chan is popular enough now?
I remember doing some work on Completely Missing the Point and I thought I brought it down from 1207 to something, maybe ~1100. Now, however, it is currently at 1211 wicks. This is insane. [EDIT: What do y'all think of making a short-term projects thread to tackle this one?]
It's possible that people added wicks to Fetish Fuel. It is currently at 39 wicks.
RE: Image Boards to Website.FourChan: Don't forget that Image Board and Image Boards are separate pages that need cleaning. Again, it's possible that after cleaning the wicks, people added more incorrect ones. It isn't really something that'll ever "be done," considering we are not removing the page for Image Boards.

- It seems like TRS Cleaning is a "remove from this list once it's been fixed enough for now".
I'm saying, we discussed and implemented removing Fetish Fuel from TRS Wick Cleaning at some point. 39 wicks was seen as clean enough, IIRC.
I forget where we discussed it, but should we remove Image Boards as being "clean enough" for now?
Do we have a place for "Related Pages to monitor."?

The Fetish Fuel wicks are all things like indexes, archives, JFF pages, sandboxes, etc. It's not being seriously used as a trope anywhere.
RE: A "related pages to monitor": I made a spreadsheet in Drive here. Let me know if you can't access it.
Also I think my above edit got 'd: What do y'all think of making a short-term projects thread to tackle Completely Missing the Point? I cleaned it on my own a while back, bringing it down by about 100 wicks, but it's now back up to 1211, which is more than when I started (which was 1207).

As I said on ATT, if we can get CMTP redlinked, that would help with the effort. It's not something that can easily be spotted at a glance, because it's so similar a title to its renamed form.
I made it a dismabiguation page, if it helps any. I imagine a lot of wicks should go to Comically Missing the Point, but it just still help get across the message not to link to it.
For a page that stubbornly receives wicks, could it remain a disambiguation but a red link be forced? Or is that confusing, an abuse of the red linking system, and/or shouldn't be overused?
Or watch the related carefully and send notifiers to everyone who adds a link?
I cleaned up the five wicks on Five Bad Band the other day and it's already gotten a new wick, so I'll mention it here for anyone to check it periodically.
Memetic Sex God is still on a few pages, including Archive.Made Of Win 2012. Do unused tropes get removed from the Made of Win pages?
They don't, as archive pages are meant to be unedited even if they have outdated formatting or wicks. Other mentions can be removed, though.
Lost Forever, which Permanently Missable Content was renamed from, is still in use with 68 wicks.
Biggus Dickus, which was renamed to Bigger Is Better in Bed over a decade ago, still has 368 wicks.
