I know that a lot of cut pages have been restored already, but IIRC they've mainly been works. I've come across some tropes that are redlinked, and I figured I'd start a list of them just so we have one central place to consult for them. -- Looney Toons (talk) 21:30, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Okay, okay, they're not mostly tropes. And thank you, Geth. -- Looney Toons (talk) 02:46, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
BTW, I'm not putting these here hoping someone else will do the work -- I'm using it as a list of things to get to. Except you're getting to it before I do! For which I give thanks, but for which I also feel vaguely guilty. -- Looney Toons (talk) 01:33, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
Don't worry about it. We knew we'd have missing pages, and your bringing it to our attention allows us to find what we can can, convert it MW format, then put it here if possible. Seriously, your help in find these missing pages is deeply appreciated. GethN7 (talk) 02:31, 27 November 2013 (UTC)
Another resource beyond just stumbling over redlinks: Special:BrokenRedirects. I've spotted a dozen or so candidates for prudepurged pages to restore just glancing over the list. And there may be other missing ones there, too. -- Looney Toons (talk) 15:35, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Reorganized page to make it easier to read and find things that need action. -- Looney Toons (talk) 01:27, 7 December 2013 (UTC)

Assuming these aren't ghost pages that were never actually created, we need to find and restore:[edit | hide | hide all]

Pages not actually worth porting over[edit | hide]

  • Parabomber (tropedex) Troper silliness and injoking
  • Theme Song Assonance (trope) Found on Wayback Machine, no source page before June 2012 available, latest version from April 2012 would have be converted by hand.
    This page was cut from TVT, and looking at the archive, it's not hard to see why. The only valid examples of this I can think are the theme to American Bandstand (which really does seem like trumpets say "bandstand!"), and in the movie My Fellow Americans where the ex-presidents made up lyrics to Hail to the Chief. Neither of them were on the page. Vorticity (talk) 09:11, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
  • Pervs Sell Products (trope) Found on Wayback Machine, no source page before June 2012 available, latest version from May 2011 would have be converted by hand.
    This is another super-questionable page; archive here. Titles suck, examples suck. The basic idea is along the lines of South Park's definition of "Murder Porn". If someone wants this, send it to the Trope Workshop, please. Vorticity (talk) 09:11, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Pages we had, but just got misplaced[edit | hide]

(That can't be right -- I remember Tourist Trap. -- Looney Toons (talk) 02:24, 10 December 2013 (UTC))
Found the page. It was created before The Great Crash, and the latest source is from 2010. The records vanish after that. GethN7 (talk) 02:48, 10 December 2013 (UTC)
Yeah but -- the trope was basically the same as Busman's Holiday, which is a better name anyway and it has more content.
