How do I create my own troper page, then add it to the Contributors?:

How to create your own troper page and add it to the Contributors

Note: if you started with a handle beginning with a number or containing an non-alphanumeric, you need to make a handle beginning with a letter and only containing alphanumerics.

1. Click on your name in a forum post of yours.

2. On the page that appears, click on the edit button.

3. Edit the page. If you want markup help, click on the "Show Markup Help" button.

4. Save your changes.

5. To index your page, click on your name again. Go to "Tools" (up and to the left.) Click on "Set page type" and set it as "a contributor".

6. You're done. Congratulations! Give yourself a cookie.

I think you go to the Contributors page and put your name in the list, and it should turn up as a redlink and you edit it.

Also, there's a Newbie Introduction thread around here somewhere. Yack Fest, methinks.

Welcome to TV Tropes Richie! Click your name either above your post or in that sentence to start editing. I took the liberty of adding the "Contributors" markup to your page; go to the Contributors page and add your name wherever it fits alphabetically.

And go to the Yack Fest forum to introduce yourself.

Cheers!

You guys took your time to answer me and even edit the name! Thank you guys so much! Being my first day, I'm still getting the vibe of how things are done... I'll go to the Yack Festing right away!
 
Oh lol, nothing gets done in Yack Fest. If you want to contribute to the wiki, I think that'd be the Wiki and Trope subfora. If you want constructive conversation that'd be On-Topic Conversation.

Well, introducing myself's still a good thing to do, I guess tongue

Now that I've got my page, I gotta learn how to include tropes within it, so it can honestly become a part of the wiki...
 
Hello, I'm S.A.B. and i'm new here. Even though I just read it, I didn't get how to create my own troper page. Someone could help me, please?

You have punctuation in your name, so it's trickier. Just edit the S.A.B. article. If you want to link to it, use [=~S.A.B.~=] as it says on Text Formatting Rules. Don't forget to add yourself to The Contributors. Welcome to TV Tropes! Introduction thread

Be sure to add The Contributors index markup to your page, and link to your page from The Contributors index.

Many thanks for the help. I'm on it right now. And sorry for answering only now.

I guess this has been asked to death around here but how do you make a contributors page? Any help would be much appreciated.

See that redlink in your custom title? click on it and edit the page.

My troper page is ptitled, since it's got numbers in it. But the link to my troper page on the forum (the one up there ^) doesn't handle the ptitling, and redirects to Home Page. Is there a way to modify that link or something?

You can only use the PM system if you have a user name for the recipient. This site doesn't co-ordinate any other way of getting in touch with another user. Sorry.
...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
Sorry to butt in. I created my own troper page, but when I try to index it it didn't work. I can't even edit the contributors page, which the link to my page is missing. Is there any way around this?
