too-long page repair.:

Looks like we have a big page lock coming. Big in the sense of many pages and big in the sense that the pages to be locked are too big.

It looks like pages over 500, 000 characters (html formatted, that is) are crashing the server when someone tries to edit them.

They need to be fixed, anyway. Way too big for one page. They need to be broken up into subpages of a reasonable size.

I'm trying to get better about communicating before big changes, so we'll let this one run for a while before taking the action. The server crashes do come under the heading of 'urgent', though.

Here's a list of the pages impacted. Also see this page: Overly Long Pages

Article Length Report. A lot of these are getting long again.

Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

"Jerkass Woobie, Running Gag and Genre Savvy are all done."

I've asked if we could split Running Gag twice already. I don't think someone pointed out the character count during those.
I'm on the internet. My arguments are invalid.

The list should be updated then, since so many are being taken care of.

How about we put this thread as a wiki headline, considering how many of these need work?

Nah, we can handle it. I told the We Are Pokemon Trainers folk to handle their page. The rest should be easy enough.

It wouldn't hurt to have a general announcement that any page that exceeds 400k characters should be split. That way maybe fewer would come to this thread.

Fire Emblem Tellius has been split. Nice Hat has been split.

[up][up] We sadly can not announce every thing on the wiki. We really need a wider read and produced newsletter. >_<

I was going to start on Batman Gambit, but noticed a lot of examples that don't fit. I think we should take that trope trope repair before splitting.

Shown Their Work is done. Playing Against Type is done. Precision F-Strike is done. Manga.Berserk is done.
