I can think of a few additional examples here (maybe Wizards) but I doubt I'd have enough to put it above Stub status.

Kuma (talkcontribs)

I have changed what I can see is wrong and I am waiting for it to be reviewed. Also, I should've thought of Wizards as an example. Thanks, @HeneryVII!

Not too sure what, apart from the bit I marked for clarification, needs to be worked on in order to make this launchworthy.

Kuma (talkcontribs)

Well, my edit is still being reviewed but I think I have something that might help. 'If the setting becomes an Urban Fantasy, the society that comes into fruition has a status quo or even benefits from the change. Thanks to the inclusion of these changes, civilization may find these benefits, such as new energy resources and the advancement of technology.' So, does that work, @GentlemensDame883?

GentlemensDame883 (talkcontribs)

Still feels off to me, but can't put my finger on exactly why. I'll let someone else take a look at it.

Kuma (talkcontribs)

I think it's that last sentence, i changed it a bit: 'Thanks to the inclusion of these changes, civilization may find these benefits, such as new energy resources and the advancement of technology where it was better compared to the past.' Sorry if I have been distracted, I am trying to do different things at once especially when I am about to volunteer.

Kuma (talkcontribs)

Also, my edit that is being reviewed can give more words where it will get further away from Stub status. Also, I can find more examples, but the ones I know are webtoons, i.e., webcomics, so I hope this can help.

Jlaw (talkcontribs)

I've added a few more examples. My vote would be to launch it.

Kuma (talkcontribs)

Well, it looks launchable to me but I think I'll make a once over to see if there are improvements to the page to make sure that it doesn't get deleted.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

All right, there has been sufficient effort to take this out of "abandoned" status. Can we see about making it launchable in the next couple weeks?

Kuma (talkcontribs)

Yes, I agree on discussion on making it launchable in the next couple weeks.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

It has been two and a half weeks since I tried to prompt the wiki community to get this launchable in two weeks. Anyone care to actually work on this, or is it getting left in the hands of the admins, like so many other candidates?

Jlaw (talkcontribs)

I added about four or five entries. What further steps would be needed?

Agiletek (talkcontribs)

I think the title is lacking. I keep thinking this is some magical test/curse that forces the participant/victim to learn a lesson (is that already trope page?).

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

It is now almost a month since the last time anyone worked on this page.

Just sayin'.

Jlaw (talkcontribs)

Should we brainstorm an alternate title? Would that make the trope launchable?

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

I can't see how. The new policy is to declare a trope candidate abandoned if nobody edits it substantially for over a month - brainstorming anything doesn't edit the trope candidate.

There's a cleanup box on the page that's asking somebody to do "an edit pass for grammar, usage and style". That would help make the trope launchable.

Kuma (talkcontribs)

Alright, I have tried to edit the page to get it closer to launchable. I just have to wait for it to be approved.

Kuma (talkcontribs)

I agree, I was against Fantastic Tribulation either. Since we are talking about alternate titles, I have one: Fantasy Setting Shift

Jlaw (talkcontribs)

Maybe also Magical Genre Disruption?

Kuma (talkcontribs)

It's more about a change in the setting rather than the genre of the series but they guess they intersect.

Jlaw (talkcontribs)

Poking again since it seems we can't agree on a title. Voting for Fantasy Setting Shift since it is a good one on further thought.

Kuma (talkcontribs)

I agree to that.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

I'll vote for "Fantasy Setting Shift" to get this out of the workshop.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

I don't see what the fascination is with picking a new title for this trope. The cleanup tag says exactly what needs to be done: "an edit pass for grammar, usage and style".

Has that been done?

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

I doubt it, since that seems to be the only thing not being discussed.

Kuma (talkcontribs)

Well, I already made changes with the grammar, usage, and style already a while ago. I don't know what else to change but I welcome anyone who can point out what's wrong with anything with the description and examples on it. @Looney Toons@Robkelk
