[up] - I'm fine with having Taboo as part of the disambig.

Even though I don't think that path will be used much, because that's a subtitle, and not the main title of the work.


The Cult is now a disambig.

Sandbox.Nightfall is still not moved to a disambig. Do people think it's ready?

Oh, I was just delaying to get the various adaptations of "Nightfall (1941)" written up. Did most of them already and plan to upload them today. waii

[up][up] Confused about the first one. What does Video Games have to do with the word FATE?

For the second one, wick directly to Tabletop Game.FATE since that's a redirect?

Instead of the third bullet, use Franchise.Fate Series.

For the Nanoha character, wick directly to her character page instead: Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha - Fate Testarossa

^ - I use "Video Game/" as shorthand for VideoGame.Fate or whatever.

Sent it to Locked Pages already.

Proposing Nice Person become a disambig between Nice Guy and Creator.Nice Person.

Any other things to disambiguate between?

An Ice Person, maybe? Although that one's a stretch. Still, this is overall a good disambig idea.

Why have Soliloquy disambig to that index?

Soliloquy is bigger than just Thinking Out Loud?

I've gotta sleep anyway... TTYL.

Soliloquy and Monologue are synonyms.

Hmm... These proposed disambigs are sorta of dependent on each other... Should they be separate, or folded into one?

Tornado: Disambig into Film/ (1 wick), Do Not Touch the Funnel Cloud (1,826) and UsefulNotes.Tornadoes (3,151)?

Twister: Disamig into Film/ (5,022), Do Not Touch the Funnel Cloud (1,826) and UsefulNotes.Tornadoes (3,151) or Main.Tornado if that becomes a disambig?

I want to second An Ice Person for Nice Person; "A Nice Person — see also The Problem with Pen Island".


I'm not aware of enough vulgar discrepancy between Tornado and Twister to assume people would be confidently looking for anything with the one word and not expect to see the other as well. Also, I initially thought your post was saying that Film.Tornado was an active work page

[up] - Well, you can add An Ice Person, if you want. I see what you mean, but don't think it close enough, but also don't feel strongly enough to remove it.

So, you think Tornado and Twister should be merged... So, which should be the disambig, and which should redirect to it?

Huh, strike my previous post. Oxford English Dictionary has a meaning for twister that isn't tornado; "A swindler; a dishonest person."


Main.Tornado
Main.Twister
  • In American parlance, "twister" is another word for Tornado.
  • In English parlance, "twister" is another word for Con Man.

Well, I suggested your Twister in Locked Pages edit.

Nombretomado had this to say:

the Twister disambig could benefit from mentioning the film, Twister.

ETA: Or the book.

Do you agree? Or do you think that it should all be offloaded onto Main.Tornado?

No preference either way... Adding the book to Main.Tornado, through.

Super Star: Disambig between Invincibility Power-Up, Film/, Video Game/, anything else?

Its common use as a term for an amazing person?

Amazing person would be The Ace, maybe Celebrity Star because it could mean "very famous"?

Okay, I'll make that now.


Curfew: Disambig between Fascists' Bed Time, Film/, and anything else?

Or just cut it, since Curfew only has 4 inbounds, and no wicks?

Also Bigend Books (Spook Country), The Spook Club, the character Mr Spook from Tales of the Beanworld, the character Spook from Top Cat, the character Spook from The Wizard of Id (short for Wellington J. Farnsworth Spookingdorf), The Spook, and highlight Silly Spook in the bullet for the Haunted Index.

I think the Complaining Index in general should be linked, with Fandom Heresey and The Complainer Is Always Wrong as more specific examples.
