[up][up]Now that I think of it, those examples might fit under Development Hell, but I'm not positive.

Thud!!

As for the wick to the Italian site, I will bring that to the translations thread.note 

Removes wicks to Bi the Way and Badass Gay. Maybe Asexuality soon.

I moved the example on Trivia.George Harrison to the new name (and touched up the grammar), since it was about how he had recorded all the vocals for his final album (which was released about a year after he died), but the instrumentation wasn't finished until after his death.

Bumping partially to bring more attention to the cleanup effort, and partially to say that the wick count has gone down from 1500 to 1312 since the last tally. At least one of the wicks is on an archived page, so it's not going anywhere.

Thud!!

Found a rare instance where someone tried to apply it to a creator's loved one, who was likely never involved. That shoehorn has been dealt with.

Wick wise, 1081 now.

[up]Dewicking isn't complete. Misuse needs to be removed, and correct usage needs to be moved to Died During Production.

Going back to wick cleaning. Among the misuses I saw was a rambly Wall of Text over at Resident Evil. No mention of timing.
