It\'s just the \"Main\" namespaces for both pages that were cut. They still have pages on the Darth Wiki.

Even without a Main/ redirect, the existence of DarthWiki.Idiot Programming would have made links to Main.Idiot Programming appear blue until the 1.8 site update, which occurred this year and fixed an issue previously brought up on this discussion page. It looks like links to nonexistent pages still appear blue on discussion pages, though.

I don't remember sliding scale of antiheroes being problematic. I remember one user saying that it should be broken into individual tropes and that decision winning a crowner, the policy to change every type number to a link to one of the resulting pages but not one "problem" that suggested making the page a functioning red link to a redirect. I participated in the the whole thing, around the same time zero content examples got the % treatment.

I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I still think we should reconsider Horrible/Fanfic, which I thought was one of the most entertaining articles on the wiki. Perhaps with tighter restrictions, as several (SEVERAL, not all or even most — I know it was a considerable problem pre-locking.) of the fics there were horrible for reasons that DON'T violate the 5P.

Yes. What would be the problem if we just made "don't include Rule 34 works" a rule for the page, likely commented at the top as a reminder, just like we don't list pornographic works in trope pages anymore? I hope they consider that, as we already do similar things warning against certain types of examples in several pages.

Sorry to suggest a preemptive strike, but I was thinking a page on Beatrice Welles would be overly controversial, considering that fans of Orson Welles might come by such a page and fill it with hate against her for, among other things, tampering with Othello and only allowing the tampered-with mess to be released. Now, keeping Ted Turner's crayons away from Citizen Kane is quite understandable (and even Ted Turner himself said he didn't really want to colorize that film anyway), but what she did to Othello is unforgivable IMHO. However, I know better than to create a page on Beatrice Welles simply to drive that point home.

About abbreviations, what can we do to clear the air regarding the confusion of "MW?" As far as I know, it stands for two things: Mech Warrior and Modern Warfare. Considering the fact that Modern Warfare 3 has on its cover "MW 3" and that MW was the original abbreviation for Mech Warrior 1 and 2 (in fact, the actual simulation executables were MW.exe and MW 2.exe), I just want to know if you the admins had some idea how to deal with it.

I think we agreed not to list these pages in the PRLC. Discuss it here if you disagree.

  • Main.Caligula: Technically this was cut as part of the new content policy, but is listed here as the most high-profile casualty of that policy. Though some users attempted to argue that the film had merits beyond its pornographic content, it will never be restored due to the precedent that would be set by allowing a pornographic work page to remain simply because of its notoriety.

Not having come across this page before joining the It Got Worse rename to From Bad to Worse, I left/created a number of PotHoles by leaving the original text, instead of adjusting the text to fit the new name.

It would help to know which works are off-limits. Being controversial isn't enough. For example, I came to this page via a link in From the Mouths of Babes to Kodomo No Jikan which is a locked red-link. I hadn't been aware that the purge was going to extend to works as well, so this took me by surprise.

If there's not going to be information on the page for the work itself about the purge, then it needs to be collected somewhere to prevent confusion for the majority of users who are not heavily involved on the forums. This site does attract new users occasionally who might want to know what the deal is.

Mar 11th 2012 at 3:26:36 AM •••

Pulling the following examples and putting them here for now:

  • Scientific Progress Goes Oi: Not A Trope. Listed almost exclusively Real Life examples, and the Calvin And Hobbes-esque title likely confused certain people.
  • Baby Got Back: The page had an uncomfortably drooling tone in regards to descriptions of the relevant body part, and it was eventually decided that there was not enough of an actual trope for it to be worth cleaning up the page — the whole thing amounted to "people with big butts."
  • Innocent Panties: Overly creepy page about children's panties showing without sexual meaning.
  • Naked Shotaro Boy: Was a listing of works which feature nude prepubescent boys. Do we even need to explain why it was cut?
  • O Ring Orifice: Disgusting page about the ability of bodily orifices to stretch wide in fiction works.

Scientific Progress Goes Oi has no reason to be here - please don't add page here without a good reason.

Baby Got Back, Innocent Panties, O Ring Orifice most definitely don't belong where they were put, and I have doubts that the names are bad enough to have them here - it's about names, not pages!

Naked Shotaro Boy: Yes, you do need to explain.

Mar 11th 2012 at 3:08:43 PM •••

The "cut then recreated" section dates back to before we started autolocking cut pages. People would recreate pages after they were cut, and they had to be locked manually. Same goes for the other/unsorted section - many of them were perma-redlinked before cut pages were autolocked.

Mar 11th 2012 at 3:15:38 PM •••

Yeah. I am just not sure if we still need these sections. In fact, I think that the "cut then recreated" section can be deleted and the Did Not Do The Research pages can be added as a sub-group of the exampleless section.

Mar 11th 2012 at 3:41:52 PM •••

I see no reason to remove them.

As for those 5 examples, I'd say they all belong here except for Scientific Progress Goes Oi. But they don't really fit under any of the current sections. They'd either have to go under unsorted or an entirely new section.

Mar 11th 2012 at 3:57:32 PM •••

I've the feeling that "other/unsorted" is an euphemism for "no good reason".

I can get behind Naked Shotaro Boy being put back, maybe Innocent Panties as well, but everything else's justification for being PRLC'ed is rather flimsy.

Mar 11th 2012 at 4:22:26 PM •••

Again, most of the "other/unsorted" ones are merely artifacts from before the autolock system was added. Even if they weren't the kind of thing we'd put here if they were cut today, back then this was for all cut-and-locked-pages. In fact, I'm pretty sure the only one of those that doesn't predate autolocking is Title Bin.

OK, so something is confusing me... according to the trope page "Pages that have been cut as of April 2011 are autolocked to prevent people from overriding the cutlist.

<s>Why is {ptitle70n0mn3c} locked and blank? Wasn't there an article on Pokemon? If this isn't it shouldn't it at least be a redirect since about a hundred pages link to it?</s> UGH I don't even know what that page is anymore, it just appears to me as "Pokemon" and many pages link to it and it doesn't redirect for some reason.

It's a redirect that looks like this: Pokémon. It looks like "Pokémon" but was linking to a "Pokemon"-ptitle [NO accent on th "e"!] It was way too often used, and was also a ptitle-redirect to a ptitle. Unwanted, unneeded, and thanks to the new system, we're now just using {{Pokemon}} (which gives us Pokemon - WITH an accent on the main page!).

Whenever you see ŢPokémonŢ (or ANY "[=~"-created ptitle, or a ptitle to a ptitle), change it. It'd be appreciated.

EDIT: Perhaps we should make it blue again - 'cause at the moment the "Related to"-Button shows absolutely NOTHING. We can delete it again AFTER we purged it from this wiki. ^^

Shouldn't The Unfair Sex be here? It's incredibly subjective and quickly turns very very creepy in a privilege-denying-heterosexual-white-guy way. There's so much rage on there against women (or men being "unfairly" punished for violence against women) that it's become pretty disturbing.

Should Villainous Sacrifice be here? i found the page started but not edited and without index, so i made the description and was searching for an index, when i found out the page erased and locked, so i'm asking should Villainous Sacrifice be here in the section "Pages for being cut then recreated" section?.

Sorry if in the past Villainous Breakdown was instead of Villainous Sacrifice, i should have commited a terrible mistake, i'm really sorry.

Really, it's an index covering a variety of tropes (or whatever it is they're considered to be) and I guess we shouldn't have pages splitting off one group of examples from a page.

Why, exactly, are some of these redlinked instead of just being redirects? GAR, for example, could be a redirect to Testosterone Poisoning, Do Not Want could be redirected to Squick, et cetera.

GAR has been discussed in IJBM, but without reaching any conclusion. What I know is that it used to be a redirect to Badass, until someone made it a separate trope.

Do Not Want has changed its target too (first renamed to Translation Train Wreck which it redirected to, then became redirect to Squick), so perhaps it was too confusing?

Jan 15th 2011 at 11:25:42 AM •••

Do Not Want could be used to express emotions other than disgust, so I think it wouldn't be a good redirect for Squick regardless.

The link to Relationship Text Upgrade became blue again after I requested a closure of the Image Pickin' Discussion. How do we change it back? Also, why was the page deleted in the first place?

To Glowsquid, thanks for fixing the link. Now I see that it is locked.

"Unbirthing: A Squick fetish that you're not likely to see in non-pornographic media."

We have various tropes that only apply to pornographic works (we have an index for them even), so why is "this only happens in porn" a valid reason to cut-lock a page?

create a namespace for the kind of work it is (to create a page for a webcomic titled Shadow Persona, type Webcomic/ShadowPersona.

You'd end up with Shadow Persona.

Sep 8th 2010 at 9:25:53 AM •••

There's nothing inherently wrong with the main page, so I'm sure asking for it to be unlocked to create the work page would be okay.

Jan 5th 2012 at 2:39:51 AM •••

But putting a work on Main/ is not OK; see Namespaces.

Sep 3rd 2010 at 11:19:32 PM •••

Weegee is showing up as a redlink for me, but it does exist (a redirect to Mario Is Missing). Is this intentional, or a glitch?

I mean, Weegee is a meme, and we should not spew memes in Main/, but it isn't quite at I Am Not Making This Up or This Troper levels of evil, is it?

Probably a glitch. If the mods didn't like that redirect, they'd delete it, not make it red.

Edit: looks like it's probably a glitch left over from when all the contributor pages were moved to Tropers/.

I'd like to point out that Please Elaborate wasn't originally intended to be used at all in YKTTW; in fact, making it YKTTW-exclusive was a last-ditch effort by its supports to prevent it being deleted, towards the end of its life.

When originally floated, it was supposed to be a predefined message which someone could leave on an ambiguous example. If somebody familiar with the work in question were to later stumble across it, they would see that tag and thus rewrite the example into a better, clearer one.

As it happened, it invited well-meaning natter. That's why it was deleted, not misuse.

It could still be useful in places like the Fanservice, Fetish Fuel, and various Crowning Moment pages, but I don't know if it's possible to make a page that's a blue link there & a red link everywhere else.

Jan 14th 2011 at 6:15:11 AM •••

It might be possible, but even if it were it would probably be more trouble than it's worth.

Jun 7th 2011 at 2:24:12 PM •••

What if Please Elaborate redirected to X Just X? That way it would stay a red link, but could be used in the edit summary when removing something for not properly explaining it.

Other than there being no main page, is there any other reason for So Bad Its Horrible Software to be cut?

Hide/Show Replies
Aug 27th 2010 at 5:24:13 PM •••

IIRC, it's because it was considered outside the scope of the wiki, and had mostly degenerated into Complaining About Programs You Don't Like.

Sep 3rd 2010 at 11:21:35 PM •••

Well, yeah, complaining is complaining, even if the shows you don't like are objectively bad. I won't be surprised if, eventually, the whole So Bad Its Horrible thing is removed from the wiki entirely.

I won't be happy, but I won't be surprised, either.

Why, exactly, does Do Not Want get a red page instead of being a redirect to Squick, given that's pretty much the only way it's used these days?

Edit: Same vein, isn't I Just Want To Be Accepted an actual trope, given that it shows up with reasonable frequency in both Heroes and Villains, admittedly generally only in shows targeted at a specific demographic?

Do Not Want: Good question.

I Just Want To Be Accepted: Presumably the person trying to launch the trope was... being unhelpful.

Sep 18th 2010 at 1:32:20 PM •••

Apparently, at some point, Do Not Want was a redirect to Squick (or so it's claimed on This Index Is Not an Example) but has since been cut from even that. If that ever was a redirect for Squick before it was cut, it might, at least, be worth pointing that out on the main article.

Nov 10th 2010 at 1:09:18 PM •••

I can vouch that the creator of I Just Want To Be Accepted was being unhelpful, I was involved somewhat in his repair shop threads

Aug 12th 2010 at 10:24:10 AM •••

So, does this cover all pages that are both cut and locked (Fred Durst, I Just Want To Be Accepted, Main.Fast Eddie), or just the ones that contribute to bad writing?

I'd personally like to move all the red link descriptions on Locked Pages to this one. In fact, I think I'm going to do that. (After all, where do you draw the line for "contributing to bad writing"? What What Woah? Do Not Want?)

Aug 11th 2010 at 1:37:03 PM •••

The whole point is to draw attention to these pages. It could be useful tool to let others know what's been cut so no more links are added while the pre-existing ones are deleted.

I don't see why this is necessary when all the examples are on Locked Pages with similar (although less detailed) explanations already.

Aug 11th 2010 at 3:39:36 PM •••

Looking over the above, the difference is that some of those pages are still valid, despite being locked. Permanent Red Link Club is about tropes that had been outright cut or made red for one reason or another. There's a couple of reds in the Locked Pages so we could move them over to their own separate area, which would be this.

Edited by RedViking
Aug 12th 2010 at 6:49:08 AM •••

I definitely want this page here. People need to know why pages have been removed and locked and will never come back so that they will know, for example, not to use So Yeah at the end of sentences.

Aug 12th 2010 at 8:04:37 AM •••

Would someone get rid of this Swamp Critters thing? Because I wasn't paying attention to this link saying the "Main" is suppose to be changed into "series" because it's a Live Action TV series.

I'm just letting you guys know.

For the first time, the Westboro church (outside of Larmie and Theroux) was referenced in an episode of Rick And Morty, where Rick and the teenage daughter (all buffed up) beat up a guy carrying a god hates fags sign.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
