The tropes arenít all that related besides the word heart.

I don't think disambig pages are supposed to be made into indexes. They're just lists of pages that could be confused with one another, and so their titles usually contain the same word. It would be, as others have already said, a Search Generated Index.

I suggest linking to the index rather than making this an index. Though there doesn't seem to be an index, so I'd suggest proposing one in TLP like normal and de-index-ify the disambig page.

Right.

So, my plan would be to reinstate the index in Heart Symbol that I removed, and change Main.Heart to just disambig into the works, The Heart and Heart Symbol, letting people travel further along Heart Symbol if they need something deeper?

Unless anyone has a good name for an index of Heart-related tropes that wouldn't just be a Search-Generated Index?

'Cause Heart Tropes sorta sounds like it would be one... Or just a copy of the current, but saying "No connection to The Heart"... Which I suppose is an important distinction.

^ That's what disambigs are supposed to be. Indexes are not.

Any disagreements with [up]?

Also, any disagreements with changing Healer from a Healing Hands redirect to a disambig between that, and Series.Healer?

[up] - Done. There were some wicks that seemed to want to be White Mage or something... Should I add that into disambig? Or what?

It seems Unsolved Mysteries was already changed into disambig, so let's discuss Abuse.

I think if Abuse would be a disambiguation page, it should have Abuse Tropes, VideoGame.Abuse and UsefulNotes.Abuse on it. I'd say it would work.

[up] - I guess I missed UsefulNotes.Abuse. I agree. if you wanna change it, go ahead. I'll check it later, and remove it from the list if you did it.

So, any thoughts on this? I feel iffy about it, 'cause we don't have a Lampshaded Vomiting trope to wick to.

We do have tropes called Vomit Indiscretion Shot and Vomit Chain Reaction, but that's not what you're searching for, is it?

[up] - Still haven't come up with a good name for it...


Just 0-wicked The Three Stooges (450). Turn it into a redirect to Film/ (10,118), Series/ (148), and Three Stooges Shout-Out (242)? 'Cause some of my fixes should've been the latter...

[up] How about Calling Your Puke Shots. It'd make a good pseudo-subtrope of Gilligan Cut, and obviously is kind of a Comedy Dead Horse Trope.


The Three Stooges disambig sounds good, though I am surprised there's no creator page; didn't they do a lot of shorts as well, and the info might as well go there.

[up] - Good ideas! ... Yeah, some of the wicks I turned into Film would have been better served by Creator/ or something? As they were referring to the people, not the works.

Go ahead and make it if you want. I'm just doing plain Disambig-y / redirect-y things.

A "short" is a Short Film, so most of their work belongs in the Film/ namespace.

Anyone against turning Main.The Girl Next Door, currently going to Girl Next Door, into a disambig for Girl Next Door, the two films, and the book?

And Crystal Bernard's album, The Girl Next Door or the webcomic Girls Next Door.
