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. programmer's whine 

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.

See this page: Overly Long Pages

another programmer's thing

[up]How do we deal with troper pages on the list?

[up] I'm guessing we pm them to inform them to split it? I and Telcontar both already pm'd Superslinger2007 but he never actually split his page... . Would it be okay to just split it now?

I'll cutlist Superslinger2007, since he is not responding to PM's.

I gave a couple of suggestions for where to move stuff; he replied and acknowledged that his page needed splitting and all, but no moving has happened.

I'm gonna split Early Installment Weirdness, Dragon Age, Turn of the Millennium, Tempting Fate and Does This Remind You of Anything?.

"Learning without thinking is labor lost. Thinking without learning is dangerous."
Is TearJerker.Music becoming a problem, yet? Periodically, I'll split some of the entries onto their own TearJerker/ pages or onto one of the genre sub-categories - but this is too big for me to handle by myself.
I'm only counting about 136,000 characters on the source page, so I don't think it's an issue. Remember that 500,000 is the bad number.

(Thank you MS Word and character count.)

Not sure how much additional markup there is outside the source code, which may push it up some amount.

TearJerker.Music has 228,114 characters*, so it's getting big but not big enough to absolutely require splitting.

Dark Confidant, if you look in the bottom left corner of a page, there's two numbers. The top one is the character count for the page. It's a lot easier to use that than Word. smile

Learn something new every day. Never saw that number.

-feels dumb- Well, thanks. Now I know.

Don't feel dumb. It's not like it explains what it is. I only know because someone, at some point, told me.
Well, thanks anyway. I do appreciate it.

I'm going to try to do The Legend of Zelda, since it's getting painfully close to 500K and no one's done it yet.

...sorry, but I had to.

[Insert seemingly profound or amusing phrase here.]
Would it be acceptable if I can only knock off WMG.The Legend Of Zelda to the 350,000 range?

I've spun off three pages already to try to ease some of the main page's burden, and I can probably do a couple more, but I don't think I'll be able to get below 350,000 without just hard-splitting the page.

edited 13th May '12 6:48:16 PM by DarkConfidant

Alright. I've got The Legend of Zelda down to 361,000 characters by making four spin-off pages, which makes it large but not in immediate danger of system collapse. If you'd like me to just hard-split the rest of the page into 'unsorted 1' and 'unsorted 2', I'll do so.
Seeking for Light
[up] That would probably be a good idea, considering 400,000 characters is about when things start going wonky.
Alright. Split the page again into two pages:

The Legend of Zelda (About 230,000 characters)
The Legend Of Zelda Additional WMG (About 130,000 characters)

Made notes on the index page and on the main page that this was by special administrative request with instructions not to split other pages without checking character counts and going through this thread.

It looks like Superslinger2007 fixed his page.

I'm doing Network Decay and Characters.Bleach Two.

TearJerker.Music had been a problem in the past, so I'm keeping a watch on that. As long as we're not even at 250,000, though - I guess we're fine.
924 Oreochan16th May 2012 10:51:50 AM from Pennsylvania
WMG.My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic Setting is done. I'll split Characters.Star Wars The Old Republic and A to H next.

Hi all! Okay, I am completely new to this very thread and I am going to raise up one concern. This page: AwesomeMusic.Vocaloid is just too big on its own right to be kept that way. So mind if anybody help me to split it up into like this: Kamen Rider Fourze ? Thanks in advance.
