Either I am having the same stroke, or there is a troll at work, or someone is testing the voting system where they shouldn't, or a bug is replacing the actual vote with some sort of boilerplate.

Optimism is a duty.

Almost every crowner says that; it looks like an admin was testing something and accidentally turned all crowner options into nonsense. I reverted the options manually using the history.

Ah yes, admin powers. Like having the nuke button right on your keyboard, just out of reach. And just in reach.

I posted a move request in the Locked Pages thread so the wick migration can proceed.

Edit: I posted a notice on the discussion page.

The request seems to have been granted.

Edit: Made Fandom Berserk Button into a redirect.

Main/ wicks cleaned. YMMV Redirects should be the only Main/ wick left for obvious reasons.

[up]I turned the old locations into redirects as a stopgap, and also in case the cuts get declined if inbounds are judged to be too high for a cut.

Also moved the Laconic and Quotes pages.

If someone here knows Dutch, I'd appreciate it if someone could look at the wick change I made to Nl.Moe (page history) in case the change left the sentence grammatically incorrect.

It should be "zal dat zeker tot een Fandom-Enraging Misconception leiden."

We got rid of the button part, so there is no longer something to activate.

I found this questionable example on YMMV.Black Clover:

[up]Sounds purely opinion-based. I think it's safe to cut.

I finished cleaning non-YMMV/ wicks. There are a decent amount of YMMV page wicks left, though.

Edit: Not sure why I double posted. I would normally edit my previous post unless I'm trying to notify the mods of concluded threads.

Edit: Wicks are now below 100.

Since we've now renamed the trope to no longer contain any mentions of Berserk Button, should we trim down the "Things that do not qualify" list?

Wicks have been cleaned, but I'm holding off on calling for a lock in case further changes need to be made to the description, per the above post.

Are we done, or does the description need to be modified?

Due to the large number of wicks and especially inbounds, some people wanted to leave the trope at its original name, but I guess the potential for misuse was too great.

It looks like the previously mentioned issues with the description (specifically, relics from the Fandom Berserk Button name) were fixed by Maths Angelic Version a few days ago. Since we've already gone through the examples, I think we're done, so I hollered to get a mod's opinion on the matter.

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
