Here is the text of the greeting:
Hello, [[troper]], and welcome to the Frequently Asked Questions subforum!
As the name says, it's a place where the threads are where frequently asked questions are answered. Notice it's called Frequently
Asked Questions; one-off questions should be taken to Ask The Tropers
while more complex policy questions go to Wiki Talk
Since this is a forum mostly for reading, it usually doesn't get much activity. The rules
still apply here as well, of course.
A run-down of the more important threads here:
- Edit request for a locked page, where you ask for edits to locked pages (preferably with your addition ready for copying in your post).
- Edit banned/suspended, where - despite the name - all bans that aren't forum-wide are appealed.
- Forgot my password!, where you ask for assistance if you can't access you account anymore.
- Renamed Tropes, where tropes that were renamed are listed.
- How To Fix A Trope and When To Rename A Trope, where some Trope Repair Shop business is discussed and explained.
- THE FORUM RULES, which of course apply here as well.
- GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS, where important tech and policy changes are announced.
- Image Changin' Etiquette, which discusses page image changing procedures (although the main thread is here).
- What Goes Where On The Forums, a directory for the forums (feedback and error alerts are always welcome).
- Finding Old Topics in Image Pickin' and Trope Repair Shop morgues, something to do before opening a new thread in Trope Repair Shop and Image Pickin.
- Made Of Forum Win, where people go to gush about awesome posts and moments in the forums.
- Crowners in need of more votes, where your vote in crowners is asked for
and many more.
You've got questions? Feel free to PM me (except for bans, please don't ask me about them). Oh, and one more thing for people heading to the banned thread: Bans/Suspensions are routinely used as a warning/damage control measure and last until the staff
is sure that the issue won't return again.
Have a nice day!
