This thread is to request that a locked article be unlocked. Please read the guidelines below before making a request.

  1. Please see Locked Pages and Permanent Redlink Club first. If an article is on the Permanent Redlink Club, it will not be unlocked, ever.
  2. Pages cut a while ago were automatically locked. Before asking for an unlock, make sure that the article you want to create is in the proper Namespace, has gone through YKTTW if it's a trope, and otherwise fulfills our guidelines for Creating New Pages.
  3. If you just want to make an edit to an article, post here instead.
  4. Don't ask for new Main redirects. Those are only for old articles with lots of existing inbounds.

Unlocked. Seems that we don't actually have general agreement on whether Fanfic should be CamelCase when it's used as a namespace. I would prefer that it not be, as CamelCase namespaces have some technical problems. But either way, Fanfic.Trouble and FanFic.Trouble are the same page.

[up] From what I see, Fan Fic is the standard.

Can we get Small Name, Big Ego unlocked, in order to merge it with Ted Baxter as decided here?

I don't make the rules, just enforce them with an iron fist.

Okay, I unlocked the Main article. (nevermind on the other thing)

Consulting Detective. Could be used for a potential YKTTW or Redirect.

I'm not just unlocking cut pages; I'm unlocking it if there's actual content prepared to go there.

Is there any reason why The Fall Guy is locked, other than being the former title of Fall Guy? It's neither on the Cut List nor a member of the Permanent Red Link Club, and I'd like to use it for an article about that Action Series starring The Six Million Dollar Man Lee Majors. (Before you ask, it's already written, complete with a German translation.)

I see the Awesomeness.
I prefer Fan Fic because it's a contraction/portmanteau of two words.

Would someone be kind enough to unlock Josip Broz Tito? I already pointed out in the discussion page why locking it may be unjustfied.

Oh, I see, Josip Broz Tito. Remind me again why we need this sort of thing. We really aren't Wikipedia; if we want to bio the guy just link there. Does he have vast bodies of literature that feature him as a character?

As I said, why not? If we have countless pages about fanfictions and other fanwork I see no reason not to include one of the most influential persons of the Cold War. We even have a page about Pol Pot, Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud and other historical people without any examples of fictional works listed where they are included. As for Tito he was included in numerous works like the Battle at the Sutjeska where he was played by Richard Burton or in the manga Ishi No Hana for example. Not to mention he is Trope Overdosed and at least in the Balkans a fountain of memens.

Alright, you've convinced me, at least from a consistency point of view — I'm still not sure we actually want those pages. But the article gets locked the instant it turns into Misplaced Nationalism or Flame Warring.

Thanks! :) We'll try to keep things civil but normally he shouldn't be more of a Flame Bait then Hitler or Stalin. And if we didn't have a serious Flame War about the Yugoslav Wars I'm confident about Tito. cool

Can God Tropes to be unlocked for the index I just launched?

Tainted By The Fanbase, simply remove all real life examples this time around. Maybe move it to the Darth Wiki. It would work well at the Darth wiki, since the page was essentially "Why it happens and why you shouldn't let it happen. Maybe not as humorous as the rest of the Darth, but it keeps in theme and would be easier to cull the complaining since hardly anyone comes to Darth Wiki anymore."

What? This isn't the place to make an extensive argument for the rebirth of an article we decided to remove. This is where you request the unlock of something that has already been decided on elsewhere. Make a new thread with your proposal and come back here when it's settled.

So Bad It's Horrible seems to have been cut by accident, as someone was confused and thought that the ptitle was a redirect. Can it be unlocked? I have the text saved on my computer if it is.

We could take this opportunity to shove it under the rug once and for all...
Eddie said no to cutting it before, so I don't see why we would keep it dead beacuse of a mistake.
[up] Link to where he said that please?
