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.

SelfDemonstrating.True Art uses the color markup and should probably be locked.

Requesting an unlock for DethroningMoment.My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic. I know someone might say it'll always be too contentious, but I don't think this is the case, and, on a tight leash, it should be fine.

As one can see on the discussion page, there has been a chunk of reasonable discussion of how to handle this page. The Wall Banger subpage has been introduced, in unlocked form, which should mean things which aren't proper Moments don't clutter the page.

The remaining issues I can think of are justifying edits and the occassional addition removal of an example for invalid reasons. I scrubbed the page a while ago, so the first isn't a problem and I will curate the page to keep it that way, though since it's clean it attracts them more slowly now. The second doesn't actually happen much at all, but I suggest that whoever unlocks the page adds a commented-out warning about consequences for removing an example just because you disagree with it or adding more than one example for yourself.

my god freeman, what are you doing
I'm probably wasting my time, but I'd like to request again that Let's Play be unlocked.

Laconic.Rainbow Motif is one of these colour-containing laconics that ought to be locked.

[up] Locked that, even though I don't see color as necessary there.

[up][up] That will require more discussion than a single line post in this thread. Make a Wiki Talk thread for it.

Is a decision going to be made about #977?

I suppose we can give it a shot. If your curation efforts can trump the rabid hatedom, more power to you.
Can anyone unlock the fanfic-rec page for Alpha and Omega listed under western animations?

Does Ctrl+Alt+Del still need to be locked?

The comic has concluded its storyline and as such the page is woefully out of date. If not unlocked, then it's got to be updated by a mod, at the very least. I personally haven't heard much CAD-related controversy for a while... actually given the ending I would've expected to have heard more. Maybe I'm just not hanging out in the right places.

Tv Tropes Will Ruin Your Vocabulary makes good use of color markup.

@983: Unlocked. The article was cut, presumably for being a stub as there was nothing wrong with it that I could tell. I suppose that an article that consists only of a link to is not really acceptable, though.

@984: Is there some reason to expect that the hatedom for Tim Buckley will not leap out onto the article and take it over again?

@985: You mean the formatting of the quote. Fair enough, I'll lock it.

Can the Wall Banger pages for various wrestling promotions be unlocked? I don't know what the problem was that caused them to be locked in the first place, but surely it's passed by now. Plus, something especially wallbangery just happened and I really wish I could write about it there.

Laconic.Pixel Hunt uses not color markup, but super secret spoiler markup, of all things. Could it be locked?

[up][up] I'm just going to say that those articles are a blight on the wiki, especially the pro wrestling pages. I have no intention of unlocking them.

[up] Okay, but this habit of making Laconics self-demonstrating seems a bit silly.

By the way, shouldn't this be merged with the thread in the FAQ forum? It seems pointless to have two different threads for locked page maintenance.
991 Fighteer30th Jan 2013 12:05:08 PM from the Time Vortex , Relationship Status: Dancing with Captain Jack Harkness
Nah, they serve different purposes and people are used to where they are by now.
992 SeptimusHeap30th Jan 2013 12:05:46 PM from Laniakea , Relationship Status: Mu
I would agree on a merge if only to trim down the Wall Of Pinned Threads in Wiki Talk.
[up][up][up][up]Um, why the hostility? I'm genuinely confused here. The worst I expected when I made the request was a response saying "No, because [insert reasons here]." Instead I got what reads to me like "No, stop wasting my time, this page that you like contributing on is horrible, go away."
994 Fighteer30th Jan 2013 04:07:31 PM from the Time Vortex , Relationship Status: Dancing with Captain Jack Harkness
[up][up] We split the threads originally, as I recall, because unlock requests and edit requests were getting crowded together.

[up] Look, I am fundamentally opposed to the concept of listing out wall bangers, just as I am opposed to Dethroning Moments. I think that pro wrestling fans are some of the worse offenders in this regard, because they take the ... um, "sport"... so absurdly seriously. I would like to make both of those no-examples.

Fortunately for you, I'm not the only moderator and others may feel differently. But I'm not going to unlock any Wall Banger page that was cut because it got too flamey.

edited 30th Jan '13 4:10:35 PM by Fighteer

[up]Okay, thank you for explaining.

As for pro wrestling fans feeling so strongly about things, I can't speak for everybody who follows it, but I think every fandom is susceptible to that kind of reaction. Fans of Spider-Man, fans of Star Wars, fans of World of Warcraft...we've seen them all get angry about stuff at different times over the last ten years. Whether it's been justifiable or an overreaction (or whether it varies from person to person depending on just how pissed they get) depends on your point of view, I suppose.

EDIT TO ADD: FWIW, you mentioned being flamey, and when I've written something on those pages before I've tried not to flame other tropers who might disagree with me, or post Flame Bait. I might talk about why I didn't like the way a particular story turned out, but I don't say anything bad about people who did enjoy it.

I put The Traitor Game on the cutlist a while ago for being a works page on Main, and my request went through. However, I realised later that the author's blog have a link to the page. Could you unlock the page so that I could make it a redirect to Literature.The Traitor Game?
997 SeptimusHeap31st Jan 2013 01:51:30 AM from Laniakea , Relationship Status: Mu
That has 15 or so inbounds. Is it possible to ask the author to repoint their link?

In regards to Ctrl+Alt+Del: The YMMV is relatively civil, and with the comic's storyline over the most controversial parts of the comic are mostly over. While I'm sure a periphery hatedom remains, I think it's as good a time as any to give it a shot. And while I don't really keep an eye out for it, I didn't even hear anything about the comic ending on any of the message boards I frequent until some trope page mentioned it. Leads me to believe people have stopped caring, somewhat.

Or at least have a mod make some edits since the main page is woefully out of date.

[up] You can requests edits in this thread. You have to give them the actual edits to be made, though, not just say "this should be changed".

Thanks. There have been a lot of them on the Discussion page so that's not an issue, but I still think it could stand to be unlocked... I quit CAD long ago and was fairly vocal in my distaste for it but it's really... not that bad anymore. Granted, I wasn't exactly the, uh, problem crowd back then, but I wouldn't be surprised if most people have cooled down.
