Depends on where you plan on moving them to, really. Subpages for fictional/unpublished works are not what we host, though some can be integrated into the primary JFF page (stuff like Funny/, Heartwarming/, etc.).

Mostly that, then. I was going to suggest essentially treating them the same as "A-D", "E-J" type pages 9not sure the proper term) and the practical upshoot is that all that'd really need to be done is switch the positions of the last two parts of the url, so instead of it being "pmwiki/supage-type/noexistent-media", it'd be "pmwiki/nonexistent-media/subpage-type", but if integrating it works, that's fine too. I just think they should have been moved somewhere, anywhere, rather than just getting nuked, which seems to be what happened.

The examples should be merged into the JFF page. If that causes the article to become too long, then... oh well. People going overboard with them doesn't justify making an exception to our rules. Articles for made-up or unpublished works do not get subpages.

I wasn't saying it would, I was saying "use same/similar procedure", but at this point that's distinction without difference. If Merging is the rule, merging is the rule, and I get that. So since merging is the rule, is restoring and merging those pages an option, rather than simply having what got nuked stay gone?

Knowing what subpages you were asking about would help.

For me, it would be the Daring Do subpages, but I'm sure there's others who feel similarly about other pages that got nuked, so I was trying to keep this as general as possible.

Are any of the Daring Do subpages applicable to The Daring Do Adventure Collection? They could be moved there.

No, it's a fictionalized version of the series that got started here before those books were made for real.

So none of those subpages contain any information that could apply to the real books?
