So, you need to move a page, but you're not sure on the how. That's where this quick guide comes in. Unfortunately, we don't have an auto mover tool available to the general public, and all {{wick}}s will need to be changed by hand anyway. Regardless of why a page is being moved, most of the procedure is the same regardless of whether it's a rename, a Administrivia/{{Namespace}} migration, or a TropeTransplant. Our example is going to be a namespace migration from a Main page to a VideoGame namespace. Ads have been disabled for visual reasons and screen shots have been cropped to show important components. All scaled images are clickable to an Image Shack unscaled version.

If you're moving a Main redirect for a work to a redirect in the proper namespace for the work, {{cutlist}} the Main redirect once all its wicks have been handled.

Once the wicks have been cleaned out, the related to page should look roughly like this[[note]]the first wik is one of those bugs I mentioned, the second is a page that lists it in large numbers and will be worked on later[[/note]]:

Clicking the "preview" page will show you a what the page will look like on the standard screen resolution, it is wise to use this feature. Once the page is properly formatted, click the "save" button which will finish the page. It should look like a normal page now.

If what you want to move is a trope, you won't be able to move it yourself. You need to inform a [[Administrivia/KnowTheStaff moderator]] to move it for you. Use the procedure indicated in the "Moving discussion, reviews and relationships" folder, except that you ask for a page move. Don't forget to tell where to move which page to.

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]]:
