Whatever you do, it does ''not'' belong in boldface-font (even though TheOtherWiki does that). Most works are in ''italic fonts'', made by typing [=''italic fonts''=]. Shorter works have "quote marks" around them, and a select group have no emphasis added at all. For more information, read Administrivia/HowToWriteAnExample#EmphasisForWorkNames. There's also no good excuse for [[Administrivia/LinkingToAnArticleWithinTheArticle making it a link on its own page]].

If you need help writing up a description or coming up with applicable tropes to list, you'll want to find other fans. Try posting in the appropriate Media section in the Administrivia/TVTropesForum.

You can also add your proposed works page to the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/tlp_activity.php Trope Launch Pad (TLP)]] to get help and advice from the tropers there.

The tropes should be in a bulleted list, [[Administrivia/HowToAlphabetizeThings alphabetically]], with one trope per line, followed by a colon : and a brief explanation of how the trope applies. Check the Administrivia/TextFormattingRules if you need help with the wiki markup, and Administrivia/HowToWriteAnExample for miscellaneous tips on style.\\

Wiki/TVTropes is an English-language wiki, so we prefer to use the English titles where applicable. So if the work has an official localized title, use the English title for the page and add the non-English title as a [[Administrivia/CreatingNewRedirects redirect]]. However, if the work ''doesn't'' have an officially-translated English title, you can use the non-English title for the main page and make the English translation into a redirect instead.

Note: The wiki software doesn't support Unicode (at present). Some foreign-language titles may just not work with our system. Get as close as you can but don't sweat it. Whatever you do, do '''not''' try to create a wiki URL using anything other than the basic English alphabet (a-z, A-Z) and numerals (0-9), and article titles must begin with a letter. No diacritics or multi-byte characters. It won't work, and if it does work, it'll mess up everything else.

Nope. We aren't here to do your job for you. If a work is popular enough, someone else may be along to create an article for it, but we can't force that process. You're the fan, the person who's familiar with the story and its tropes, so why aren't you writing the article? Don't be shy; we're patient with people as long as they ask for help.
