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!

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?
7 SeptimusHeap16th Sep 2012 12:46:47 PM from Laniakea , Relationship Status: Mu
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.

How soon is too soon to start a page on a television show that is based on a book, etc? Is it ok to start the page before the show airs, or not?

You can start an article, but you have to have enough verifiable material to avoid making a stub. Don't list guesswork or speculation, just confirmed facts.

Thanks a bunch. I think I will keep working on it for a bit before I add the page.
I want to create a new page for the Philippines first lesbian series "The rich man's daughter" can someone help me set it up? I don't know how to make one and I need assistance. Thanks and I await your reply.

you can write up a draft of a page in YKTTW. I am sure people there will help you.

What game? And by "post", do you mean forum topic or wiki article?
How do I make a new page that's not a trope?

I'm trying to get a template to make a new work page, but the page is locked, so I can't copy it to make a new page. What do I do?

Go to the page. In the URL, paste the following at the end of the URL (note that you can do this to any page on the Wiki):


You will then be able to copy the template.

Or just click "More" and then "Page Source".
Speaking words of fandom: let it squee, let it squee.
Hi, i have a new trope idea:

"Extream Close Up"

[up] First, Trope Launch Pad is the place to propose new trope ideas. Second, did you actually mean to type "extream" there? Use a spell checker, please.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
