Creating a New Page:

I want to create a sub-trope of "Lampshade Hanging" (to be called "Overplay Gloss"). How do I create the page?

You use YKTTW to propose new tropes. I warn you that new Trope Tropes are going to be hard to get through the system, as you have to sufficiently distinguish them from existing tropes and demonstrate enough solid examples.

I should also let you know that the title you've selected is unlikely to pass, as it's a phrase most people are not going to be able to understand just by glancing at it.

For more general topics on creating and editing wiki articles, see Welcome to TV Tropes. Happy troping!

Sorry about the message, I just figured this out.

What about creating a new page about a livestramer or something? I've looked everywhere and I just can't figure out how to do it.

I think you want How to Create a Works Page.

I'd like to add a Fan Fic onto Tv Tropes. How do I do it?

You don't add the fanfic to TV Tropes. You add a page for it under FanFic.NameOfTheFanficHere?action=edit

I see the Awesomeness.
Check to make sure it doesn't violate the content policy (no porn fics, nor underage characters and you're probably good). Type Fanfic/Work Name Here somewhere, here is fine, and click the link. Describe the work. List tropes from the work. Crosswick the work onto the trope pages as listed.

^The exact standards are in the middle paragraph of the linked page.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
