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

TV Tropes' very wikibot
I'll do Funny.TV Tropes, if you don't mind. Suggestion: One page for the various "examples" folders, one for the rest.

And another suggestion: Using an editor that counts the bytes of your text helps with this work. For Windows, there's the free program Notepad++.
It's super effective.
Much as I can't stand the fanbase, I'll try WMG.Doctor Who With Spoilers.

That's Detective Gumshoe to you, pal!
Noticed that Funny.Atop The Fourth Wall went past 400000 characters, so I split it into years, like The Nostalgia Critic's had been done.
Status of possible Fallout RP idea: Thinking of and open to new ideas.

In uffish thought
Characters.The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim needs splitting ASAP; it's 700553 characters long. I'm not confident to do it myself.

I will, based on the discussion page. They can switch around the fine details later.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand done.

Eddie-san, it's been a month since the last list. Can we get an update?

Eddie-san? What is that? [offtopic]

In uffish thought
General politeness; very roughly equivalent to Mr Eddie. Eddie-chan would be rather different and I wouldn't like to see his reaction! wink

Archive.Lost And Found ought to be locked or cut. I prefer the former as it keeps some info for reading.

I also notice a lot of Headscratchers and WMG pages are on there. Might be a point to move them to formats that are more suited for their purpose (as is being discussed in Wiki Talk for headscratchers)

I'll grab Headscratchers.The Legend Of Korra.
Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

I'll do Star Wars, splitting by trilogy and pro/antagonist within that.

Still haven't given up just yet on the Doctor Who WMGs.

Five-Man Band.Other is a little...what with some categories, but I'll at least split it off for pages for types of media there.

Seeking for Light
[up] Er... I was already working on FiveManBand.Other...

World's Toughest Milkman
Purging misuse on Five-Man Band.Other might be a more appropriate action than splitting it. We have a separate special efforts thread for getting rid of the many, many, many incorrect, shoehorned examples of that trope.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds is done. I'll do Burn Notice, Celebrity Paradox, Shut Up, Hannibal!, Awesome McCoolname and Artificial Stupidity next.

"Learning without thinking is labor lost. Thinking without learning is dangerous."
It's super effective.
Oh, damn. Sorry. Was only looking at the list.

As the two hidden Mass Effect 2 characters have a LOT of tropes to their name, would it be fair to split it into the "main party members" and "hidden party members"? Or would that still leave the first page too large?

The Other Troper
I can split Characters.Friendship Is Magic-Background Ponies, but does anyone have some good suggestions on the way to split it?

Also, Characters.Castlevania is over 320K characters. Would it be a good idea to split that now, or wait?

I'm on the internet. My arguments are invalid.

This didn't exceed 400000, but I rearranged the Fallout: New Vegas trope lists. IIRC, Tropes A to L had more than 360000 characters.
