Hats and bombs are often not used as their intended purpose. Hats are often used as \"this trope is a good idea\" and bombs as \"this trope is a bad idea\", rather than \"this trope is ready to launch\" and \"this trope has a hat it does not deserve\".

The info on how to discard is sparse, and sort of comprehensible... But, basically all it says about how to do it is to "(see below)".

Do you think it should be changed to "see below, at the "Launching" section", or something? 'Cause when I got all the way down there, I didn't connect it with Discarding?

Or make a new section for Discarding, perhaps basically about how Discarding differs from Launching?

Also, make some notes on the requirements for launching / discarding other than just being 3 days old, if there's more?

Guys, don't you think you should update this, considering YKTTW's name change?

We should add a section on how to handle YKTTW Bumping. There is an old YKTTW that I am interested in bumping. I have many examples to add, but I know that some people don't like it when you bump old threads. Is it different with YKTTW?

I have a question about the launching process: When entering the title of your page, what if the namespace is something other than Main? For example, I have a Just for Fun page in the YKTTW section, and while it's not ready to be launched yet, I want to be prepared for when it is.

Then how do people launch work pages on YKTTW?

This page is useful for putting new tropes on YKTTW but it barely mentions anything about putting new works on YKTTW. I know that there is the Works Pages Are A Free Launch page, but there should still be some tips on the YKTTW Guidelines for if you do need extra help. It would help to minimize confusion.

Well, the procedure stays the same either way. The page could indicate a bit more clearly that YKTTW can be used for works as well - It's a common misconception that YKTTW should not be used for works.

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?
