Yep, we're disambiguating. Calling.

I made Sandbox.Win The Crowd with the list of pages that were suggested, but I'm currently sick and worn out, so I don't currently feel like writing descriptions for the listed pages. I took the disambiguation wording (such as "A link somewhere on the Internet sent you to this page") from Wallmaster, since that was turned into a disambiguation page pretty recently, so I figured it was safe to get the wording from there.

I added explanation of what the redirect tropes were.

Okay, I think the sandbox looks good. How do we make it the main page?

[up]I think the on-page example should be moved to more applicable pages if possible, then the disambiguation page should be put in place and the page added to the Ambiguity Index and removed from every other index it's currently in.

The disambiguation page is now in place, and the sandbox and Laconic were cutlisted. The wicks (there are currently 392) still need to be taken care of.

I changed the page type from "trope" to "disambig" because I forgot to do that, and I noticed that someone removed all the Main/ wicks aside from the obligatory Ambiguity Index wick, so it looks like some wick cleanup has been done since I last posted.

Thud!!

Some wicks had been cleaned before I got to doing YMMV/A, so we are currently at 238.

What's the most appropriate place for these types of examples, if anywhere? I've just been removing them but if we have a YMMV item for them it could go on the disambig.

  • Remake skepticism: People didn't like the idea of remaking work x, but the remake actually ended up ok ("winning" the original crowd)
  • Reception slowly warms over the advertising campaign: People didn't like the announcement of work y, but the later advertising made audience opinion turn around ("winning" the skeptical audience)

Finished dewicking. The last five wicks are on the cutlist for being some combination of orphaned subpage, inappropriate YMMV page (eg. for a creator), and the only bullet being a Win the Crowd entry that was just "the fans liked this" and didn't fit any other trope.

Anything left to do?
