I'd be fine with making Rickroll either a Useful Note or Just For Fun. Cutting or merging it, however, looks like a bad idea.

Looks like there's a split between a move to Useful Notes versus Just For Fun. Now what?

Do we need a runoff crowner?

No... 4.5:1 and 1.5:1 are dramatically different ratios, and even if they were both over 2:1, they could both be done.

Will call in favor of making it JFF.

I moved the page, migrated the indexing (I removed it from New Media Tropes now that it's Not a Trope and added it to Just for Fun for obvious reasons), and corrected the page type (stuff added to the JustForFun/ namespace is set to "subpage" by default for some reason). Dewicking still needs to be done.

Edit: I'm assuming inline wicks can be kept in at least some cases, such as if a Web Original work references Rickrolling, and that the namespace just needs to be changed.

Edit: Brainulator already posted a notice on Main.Rickroll's discussion page.

Update: Wick Namespace Migration complete for Main/, except for Shock Site, which is locked. I posted a request in the locked pages thread. (Another update: This was taken care of, so Main/ is dewicked.)

Update: Main.Rickrolling (a barely used redirect) was dewicked and added to the Cut List.

Update: Wicks down to 200. The hiatus was due to medical reasons, but I'm getting that treated, so progress might be able to continue again.

Currently sick, so less active with TRS cleanup. Please help out.

Taking care of a few wicks.

It looks like Main.Rickroll is completely dewicked now and has been cut.

And the only wicks left are an archive and a glitched page. Declaring as done, then.

Closing.
