Follow TV Tropes
Has existed since 2010, but there are only 6 wicks. That means Starving on Wick, so it's not performing well enough. I vote cut.

We got a couple threads wrapping up, so opened.
I'm thinking we can salvage the info in the description for a Useful Note on silent films. Of course, we can cut this page after.
This strikes me as (1) not a trope but a useful notes page, and (2) really badly named. So I suggest to move to useful notes and rename.
Merge into The Silent Age of Hollywood? Or its own thing?
That can work.
I think it would make more sense to move this to Useful Notes.
There is clearly a trope here (though not worked out well). When reproducing "old movie" footage, cranking up the speed makes it more realistic. Similar to Monochrome Past but with pacing. It may be Too Rare to Trope though. Something for the yard maybe.
For now, I'd say it can be merged with the Useful Notes page. Probably not distinct enough for its own page.
As written this definitely doesn't feel like a trope, it does feel like a Useful Note, and I do generally think the info can just be folded into the main Silent Films UN page. As for making an actual trope of the concept here...I'm unsure it'll work, but we can yard it either way.
I didn't consider merging with The Silent Age of Hollywood, but I agree with that idea.
Hmm... do we have any other pages discussing framerate?
Undercrank lists it as a subtrope, but that doesn’t seem right.There is also the opposite Overcrank.

I'll start a crowner to see who's on board.
It's been almost a week, and the crowner is currently at a 6:1 ratio in favor of merging The Speed Of Silents with UsefulNotes.The Silent Age Of Hollywood. Fairly certain that it's ready to call.

Calling in favor of merging. Time to move any relevant info over.
Okay, copied contents into the Useful Note (even added sections!), so time to clear the wicks.
I wonder if the deliberate use of this in media might be tropeworthy, along with tropes about framerate in general.
Okay, everything's done, and wicks are dealt with. Time to close.

How well does it match the trope?
