If you are doing a rename, don't forget to post links to the TropeRepairShop discussion and a YKTTW for the page you are moving before hollering, if there are any of these.

First, if you're moving a thread in conjunction with a Trope Repair Shop thread, holler from that thread. If you're moving a page to its proper NameSpace, use the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13089408750A90860100&page=1 Namespace Migration Thread]] and pick a post, it doesn't matter which. For this example, we're using generic entries, and are working from the Namespace Migration Thread. Once there, click the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/smiles/error.png holler button]]:

To open the new, unmade, page either modify the url (this will be shown later) or create a link in the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/conversations.php?topic=00000000000000000000001j Sandbox]] that you can click. In this case, the link would be [=VideoGame.{{Mabinogi}}=] which will give us VideoGame.{{Mabinogi}} (a / can be used instead of a period if you wish to hide the NameSpace).

In much the same way as moving a page to a Namespace, you will be copying and pasting the contents over. However, in the case of our example, there are two works with the same name, leading to shared subpages. You can either hard split them, or soft split them. We are going to soft split these pages. Now, one of them does not have a characters sheet yet, but we're setting one up preemptively to keep the tropes separate and make it all nice and pretty. See Administrivia/HowToSplitAPage for other options.

'''How to move reviews''': You can move reviews yourself. This is how: Go to the review page (it's the rightmost button of the subpage bar). On the top right immediately above the review box, you will see a button that says “correct subject”. Click on it. A new screen will appear with two new input boxes, the first saying “namespace”, the second “wiki page”. “Main” will appear as the default namespace in the upper box. Delete “Main” and enter the namespace to which the page has moved[[note]]Assuming that you are moving a page from Main/ to another namespace, which will be the usual case.[[/note]], then type the name of the page in the second box, using WikiWords. Click the “submit” button just below. Everything should be fine now.

Not sure what this is about. Artifact?
At this point, you wait for the moderator to respond telling you that the subpages have been moved. Once this is confirmed you will turn the original page into a redirect so any inbounds[[note]]links from external sites[[/note]] can find the page they're looking for. Or turn the page into a disambiguation page, whichever is appropriate.
