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

Agent, it would help if you could put the new link bullets here, so we can do some stuff about unlocking it.

Oh, okay, I didn't realize that had to be dealt with on your side. Here you go:

Hullo! Sorry to butt in (this is actually my first forum post, oh boy), but I notice the Dresden Files main page is part of the lock. Looking over it, I'm wondering how it could be broken up. The books are so interconnected, breaking it down by each book would be impossible. Taking the TV show-exclusive tropes and making a separate page might lessen the weight, perhaps?

Thoughts? I love the page to death and would like to help.

The thing being split here is the trope example list. It looks like the best play is an alphabetic split, rather than a media split. So, you would go: TheDresdenFiles.Tropes A-D, TheDresdenFiles.Tropes E-G (and so on). Read further back on this thread for the how-to's. Thanks for lending a hand!

Okay, I'll see what I can do about that. Should I give the TV Show its own page while I'm at it? The TV show is kind of Dresden Files In Name Only anyway and isn't in remotely the same continuity.

Should we mention something about this situation over at Locked Pages? If somebody clicks on the lock on one of these huge pages, they are going to be taken there.

There's a giant banner at the top of all the locked pages.

Well, yeah, but it still feels a bit weird for people to be taken to that page and it doesn't mention anything about it. Still, I guess the banner will do.

I'll do Wham Episode.

Okay, I have the Tropes separated out for the Dresden Files. I've got Tropes A-M and Tropes N-Z and the series out. I'm going to go through and move appropriate tropes to the YMMV page, but if you wanna unlock the main page, I'll get that set up?

We're moving the tropes off the main page and then Fast Eddie is linking the subpages to it. Make the subpages first, then it will be unlocked.

Okay, sorry, added the links to my other post. I'm making a list of what I'm taking off each page now. This is probably a stupid question and I apologize, but the Dresden Files has very thorough character sheets. Can I take off mentions of tropes like Badass Abnormal and the like if its covered on the character page?

I gotta say, I kinda balked at that last one, but okay... just get it done, right?

I've created the following pages for some of the entries on Grand Unifying Guessess, unless noted they contain what is currently in the folder with the same name.

I have also added a note to the Locked Pages that explains this issue and refers potential editors to this thread.

I am currently working on the Action Girl article.

Edit: I'm done moving all of the examples from Action Girl to subpages. I left Troper Works and Other as there was only a single example in each section. I hope I did it right.

The way I've been treating character page stuff, for the works pages I've taken on as personal projects (Wing Commander, Schlock Mercenary, and Digger), is that if a character based trope applies only to specific people, it comes off the main page and goes onto the character sheet under the relevant character's entry. If it refers to a group, like say the hyena tribe in Digger, I leave it on the main page.

Note that this is just how I've been handling them. I don't know if that fits Wiki guidelines, but I've not gotten any complaints about it, FWIW.
