EDIT: Never mind, apparently the link I was talking about points to ASMR, not ASMR Video and that one was nuked, probably exactly because of not coming to an agreement on to put it in Useful Notes, Genre, or Webvideo.

The first sentence says it's a genre. Everything I know about ASMR agrees with this. I see no reason for it to be a work page rather than a genre page.

I think the namespace is wrong.

The namespace feels weird even now. Tt should have been on the Main namespace as ASMR videos are a genre.

If things like Reaction Video and Let's Play are in Main then ASMR should too. And it probably should be called ASMR or ASMR Genre.

As the creator of the page, it was the best compromise I could think of at the time to salvage the concept as the original arguments seemed to be floundering, IIRC. I'm good with whatever needs to be done to slot it correctly.

The page went through TLP and was in the Main namespace, but it was later decided that it's best as a Web Video page.

It's definitely a genre, so it should be in the Main namespace.

Giving this a bump. I've recreated the page in Main/, redirected the Web Video/ page to save the inbounds, and am working on changing the wicks.

EDIT: Done.
