Category:Pages Needing Wicks

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Wicks -- links to one wiki page from another -- are what fuel a wiki. The pages listed here need a fill-up.

You can find out how many wicks a page has by clicking on "What links here" in the "Tools" section of the left-side page menu. If a trope has 12 or fewer wicks and it isn't on this page, please add it by adding {{Needs More Wicks}} to the very top of the tropelist or example list. If one has more than 14 (counting this page), please remove it.

When launching a trope from the Trope Workshop, it's good form to Index, Entry Pimp and crosswick it enough so that it doesn't go straight onto this list. If you can't figure out how to do that, that just might be a sign that you should have left it there for a little longer.

It is worth noting that quite a few of these tropes could get off this list if the examples all had a link back to the article on the work pages listed as examples of the trope. So, if you happen to have time...

A few ground rules:

  1. This page exists chiefly so lesser-known tropes can get needed publicity; please do not add administrative pages, contributor pages, or works. (The first two are definite no-nos. Adding works to the list is pretty common, though.)
  2. Note that indexes have an effective wick from every page they index that isn't counted by the button, so they should almost never qualify for this page.
  3. When a page links to itself, it doesn't count.
  4. Not a rule, but if you add a page, please take a moment and try to add a few wicks to another one here so it can be removed.
