I have been looking through about 28 pages now looking for a thread that contained a website showing overused terms and such, example: After blowing up a spacestation your character shouts " Yeehaw!!!" is extremely overused. The website also had its underused I believe.
Does anyone have a faint wisp of the name of this thread?

I think you're looking for the cliche thread (http://www.sffworld.com/forums/showpost.php?p=249016&postcount=1) from May, but the "Grand List of Overused Sci-Fi Cliches" site is gone.

The fantasy cliches can still be found HERE (http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Labyrinth/8584/stuff/cliche.html) and some others HERE ( http://amethyst-angel.com/cliche.html) if it's any help. :)

A Google search will probably find you some more as well.

Okay, here's the archived link to the Grand List. Maybe I should put it on the net somewhere for safe keeping.
