- Given that there's a Film.The Girl Next Door disambig, with 2,349 inbounds, do we cut that, leave it, or make it redirect to Main?

redirect to main. No point having multiple disambigs for the same phrase
Most of those inbounds are probably supposed to be one of the specific film pages with that name.
- Well, I could undo / revert the conversion... Go ahead and ask the mods for it, if you want.
I've moved The Damned to The Damned (1969), since there is more than one film by that title. Since there is also at least one book and a band by the same name with pages, Main.The Damned (which is currently empty) seems like a logical disambiguation page to redirect Film.The Damned to.

- IIRC, it'd still be better handled by auto-disambig, unless we have a trope for Damned souls, or things that are just called Main.Damned?
And we do, so perhaps Main.Damned is the better disambiguation, especially since that's empty too.

We have Infernal Tropes, which includes damned souls/people/places/etc. Please include that in the disambiguation.
Bumped this to say I found Trolls, and while some redirects like these are cut due to being plural, I think it could be a good disambig. What do you think?
- Sounds good.
Isn't there also Trollz and Trollkins

Alright, then I'll disambiguate Trolls.
Plot-Induced Stupidity redirects to Forgot About His Powers, but is much broader in scope. I think it should be made into a disambiguation between that and Idiot Ball.
And Gameplay-Guided Amnesia
+ - Sounds more like an index or supertrope then?
210 wicks, and 4k+ inbounds, wow.
It used to be an old trope, the new name of which is Forgot About His Powers, precisely because of the misleading name.
We do seem to have an index for Contrived Stupidity Tropes. Perhaps redirect it there instead?
- But is it always contrived? ... I guess it usually is enough, to count?
And also vague enough?
I agree with changing the Plot-Induced Stupidity redirect to direct users to Contrived Stupidity Tropes because "plot-induced" is another way to say "contrived" (contrasting plot based and character based descision-making).
Also think it should redirect to Contrived Stupidity Tropes.
- Nothing's been done yet, and:
I found Literature.Berserker, where Main.Berserker is currently just a redirect to Main.The Berserker.
I assume there's no reason for edit loss if we get an update, or a design reversal or anything... Having that happen would mean there's some connection between design and page history that I'd find strange...
So, back to 0-wicked redirects to turn into disambigs:
Frog Prince, with 13 inbounds. Literature.The Frog Prince and Bewitched Amphibians?
I suggest making Djinn into a disambiguation. It currently redirects to Genie in a Bottle, but there are a whole bunch of tropes relating to genies aside from that one. In addition, there are at least two work pages by that title: Film.Djinn and ComicBook.Djinn.
- Makes sense. Wonder what VideoGame.Golden Sun's use of the term, would be under.
Gotta clean out those 14 wicks...

Checking in for opinions here; I'm preparing to make Main.Nightfall a disambiguation (and turn Literature.Nightfall into a redirect to the Main page).
I haven't given much thought to the tropes that might need to be disambiguated there, and wanted to know if I should limit the work list to One-Word Title examples, or include other times the word Nightfall is used in the title (such as Corruption At Nightfall). What do the rest of you think?
"Corruption At Nightfall" feels too different to go into the disambig...
And the auto-disambig would serve, for works... IIRC, policy is not to make Main disambigs unless there's tropes to be disambiguated to.
Multiple films and multiple literature entries. I figure creating a single disambiguation made more sense than a disambiguation for each medium.

How well does it match the trope?
