Discarded Tropes, however, I'm not understanding how the list is cleared up. For several months, the oldest draft there dates back to February 2nd 2018, but I really doubt that's the first discarded draft ever.

The oldest discarded drafts are mostly lost to history...if they weren't linked somewhere.

By the way, I have actually made a request for Discarded TLP to be readable. As for those lost drafts, I remember that February 2018 and maybe some later one were rather turbulent month for the servers and admins made some space-saving decisions, including the removal of all these drafts. Those drafts may now be lost for good due to TLP's random URL system, but server purges sometimes have to be done, and I guess this one had to happen eventually. Live with it.

If they're your own drafts, you can see them via the History link at the top of TLP. (Launched and discarded ones are both grouped under "Launched YKTTW's you started")


How well does it match the trope?
