I would like to add The Bard's Tale IV to the Needs Wiki Magic Love list; it feels like edit content had virtually stopped right before the game released, and hence its page is very lacking.

But the page is basically fine. It has a decent description and the example count is well above 10. It has several wicks, too, though it looks mostly like indexes. So it only needs Cross Wicking. I don't think it's necessary to put the work page there. On the other hand, it's not fordbidden and adding to that page doesn't really require consensus.
Why don't you update the page yourself? You seem to know the work and you are a troper. Ideal combination. :-)
I do not, actually! I just got there from Sequel Gap.
Dream has the Needs Wiki Magic Love tag despite being well over 10 examples. I think it can be removed.

Is there any way to even give Main.Meta, Wiki Magic?
Was able to verify that the count exceeded 10, so I removed it from the index.
According to NWML: Meta needs "Needs everything: examples, quotes, wicks, images, better descriptions, etc." Question now is if any of these are needed.

Yeah. Things like a top-page quote, a quotes subpage, a top page image, an image links subpage, images on character sheets etc. are not required. Of course these are all nice to have because the page simply looks better, but if only one editor thinks it should all be there, they should be the one to do the work.
I'm also kinda stunned by the number of pages on the 'needs wiki magic love' list that apparently need an entry pimp. I know it's just this wiki's lingo for a dedicated, enthusiastic editor, but again... if you're willing to be an entry pimp for your beloved work, then cool, we'd probably love it, but it's weird to ask others to do it for any random page. Lots of those articles listed there are stubs or almost stubs anyway.

I did some cross-wicking on Fanfic.Aurora Falls, asked the cross-wicking thread if twenty-three wicks is enough, and asked the zero context cleanup thread for a second opinion about some iffy examples. Depending on what answers I get, I might be able to move the page off of "Needs Wiki Magic Love" and onto one of the sub-pages.
23 wicks seems fine for a lesser-known works page.
I began a TRS thread on moving these pages to the Administrivia/ namespace. Well, the ones that hadn't been moved over already.
Website.Critical Hit Point - From 2013, was cleaning up Review's wicks. Can we cut this barely functional page?

Yeah, the website link doesn't even work anymore, and it's a classic stub page.
Is Echelon Conspiracy salvageable? There is only one example with sufficient context and no spoiler tags. All other examples are ZCE or had context spoiler tagged.
If ~jormis29 can update it to comply with wiki standards, then they should get the chance. Otherwise, I'd prefer they cutlisted it.
~Graf von Tirol, where did you get consensus/permission to completely change the sorting method on Needs Wiki Magic Love?
I have to admit I did it on my own. I won't object to the order being changed back if it comes to this, but much like some other subsections that handle work pages (eg Works Needing Tropes, Pages Needing Example Context) it would make sense to sort by medium as a reference, then alphabetize.
I did bring it up in the Discussion, though taking it here would've been more ideal in hindsight if more people view here than Discussions it seems.

I do like the idea of separating the tropes/indexes from the other pages. I'm not certain about mixing UsefulNotes/ into the media categories. What about the following?
Sounds like a good order to work with.
Precisely my thinking.
Edited by GrafVonTirol on Mar 7th 2021 at 12:33:41 PM
I'd rather have folders for work namespaces, i.e. how it's now. Certain people specialise in different kinds of works, so such sorting can make find it easier.
Yeah, that kind of sorting can work.
The order in is also workable.
May I proceed with the sorting or is more input needed?
I think the most involved editors have had their say. I don't see a reason to delay this merely for Rule of Three policy.
The sorting has now been completed. And boy the Video Game folder alone is a doozy.
Also put Creators/Actors between tropes and Useful Notes, since it feels awkward lumping creators in alongside the works.

Wick-wise, the cleaning is concluded. However, I caught a few trying to add NWML onto pages. How are we combatting this?

How well does it match the trope?
