Edit Requests for Locked Pages:

This thread is for requesting edits to Locked Pages. Please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  1. Don't ask for a page to be unlocked here. Use this thread instead.
  2. Check Locked Pages first. Often the reason for the lock will give you some indication of what sorts of edits we will not accept.
  3. Include working links in your request to the page(s) that need edits.
  4. State your changes exactly as they should appear on the page, including proper Example Indentation, namespacing, and pothole and quote formatting.
  5. Make sure that what you want to add is actually a valid example.
  6. We do not edit archived articles, even to correct links.
  7. Main redirects are no longer being created for namespaced work pages. Don't ask for one.
  8. Some locked pages have ongoing cleanup threads, like Complete Monster (Thread) and Five-Man Band (Thread). Other than purely technical requests, edits to these pages ought to be discussed in these threads first.

NOTE: Edited with OP's permission.

Speaking of Seltzer and Friedberg, the reference to {{Hellboy}} needs to be changed to Film/{{Hellboy}}

On FanficRecs.Ranma One Half, {{Hellboy}} needs to be changed to ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}.

"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.
I'd like to add a line to the bottom of Lolicon, unless someone can think of a better place for it.

Just for added confusion, there is a Japanese fashion style called "Lolita" (and an accompanying trope), which has very little to do with this.

Five-Man Band needs The Hero replaced with The Leader as part of the The Hero TRS thread

Specifically, replace "the hero" with "the leader" and the The Hero paragraph with this:
  • The Leader(lead singer) The leader of the group. Can be a mastermind, charismatic, levelheaded, headstrong, or some combination of the four. Often also The Hero.

On Wikipedia, under Wiki Vandal: Can the [citation needed] tag be changed to [citation needed], in order to appear more like the actual Wikipedia tag? Feel free to not include the Echo Chamber pothole; I did it to make a blue link and for humor value, though it isn't strictly relevant.

Can someone please add Reconcile The Bitter Foes to the Mass Effect 3 trope list? The write-up can be more or less copied from the trope page... Thank you.

Crossposting from the trope page for reference:

Reconcile The Bitter Foes: Shepard has a chance to end the war between the quarians and the geth peacefully, though there are many conditions that have to be met for this to succeed. Also, the Krogan/Salarian/Turian enmity can be mended to the point where the three races start cooperating—something deemed impossible for at least several centuries. The Turians and the Humans have the latest in species grudges, but the Turians are the most willing to help humanity out (though they have their own problems).

[up] Yup, that's it.

Where would that go? Main page or the character sheet? I don't know my way around Mass Effect.
小さく揺れた向日葵
Main, I'd think. It's a trope about the work itself.

Better yet, let's use proper example indentation:
    Proper Indentation 
  • Reconcile The Bitter Foes
    • Shepard has a chance to end the war between the quarians and the geth peacefully, though there are many conditions that have to be met for this to succeed.
    • The Krogan/Salarian/Turian enmity can be mended to the point where the three races start cooperating—something deemed impossible for at least several centuries.
    • The Turians and the Humans have the latest in species grudges, but the Turians are the most willing to help humanity out (though they have their own problems).

The link to Warrior Cats on Mondegreen needs to be moved to the Literature namespace.

This is a title.
On the Barack Obama page the second entry in Embarrassing Middle Name seems to belong to a different trope as it discusses his oath of office gaffe.

Also, I don't think having a name that could be rendered Irishesque by the addition of an apostrophe counts as Name's the Same.

Also in The Bible characters page, there's the trope The Ineffable which should probably be The Unpronouncable

I like this webcomic.
[up][up]It would count if it was a spoken word work, such as on the news or radio.
Der Führer des Fraudlente Menschen.
In Literature.The Bible please add: —>"There are six things that Jehovah does hate; yes, seven are things detestable to his soul."

[up] Jehovah? Shouldn't you just use God? Not everyone agrees with the medieval version of His name.

I probably should wait a while but it IS Father's Day...

So please link to the url http://i.imgur.com/58cPn.jpg , which is an image of Rance being fatherly in X-Mas, under the Christmas Episode entry like so on the Rance Quest page.

[up][up] I don't think that counts. The "X number, yes, X+1 number" thing was a Hebrew rhetorical device, not a case of disorganization.

Get rid of all the Rape Tropes in Double Standard, since most of the rape trops are no longer existant.

On JustForFun.The Archive Of Bellicose Lexicon Entities, can we go ahead and just kill all the wiki word markup, all of which are now circular redirects pointing back at that page?

[up][up]They haven't been removed; just blocked. A final decision on what to do with all of them is still pending I believe. (Most probably won't retain anything resembling their current form, but what will happen is still up in the air.) This also means that if you've been running around removing them from existing pages, you should probably stop.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

In Let's Play, there's a link to the non-existent LetsPlay.Sonic The Hedgehog 2006 Lets Play that needs to be changed to LetsPlay.Sonic The Hedgehog 2006.

On Fallen Creator, the Lindsay Lohan paragraph needs some namespaces added, as follows:

  • Lindsay Lohan had a decent start to her film career with remakes of The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday, and seemed poised to transition well to young adult stardom with Mean Girls and A Prairie Home Companion. Immediately afterward her reputation tanked hard thanks to drug addiction and numerous car crashes, plus a publicized letter during the making of Georgia Rule about her frequently showing up late to the set thanks to going out partying the night before. After seeming to hit rock bottom with the universally panned I Know Who Killed Me, Lohan went through rehab and publicly stated that she let success go to her head and she would try to maintain a better public image from now on. Then came her recurring role on Ugly Betty, where she reportedly acted like such a diva on set that the storyline was heavily rewritten just to get rid of her, though there are conflicting reports that say she left the show due to Creative Differences over the way her character was handled. A comeback was apparent when she was cast as Linda Lovelace in the upcoming biopic film Inferno, but she later dropped out of the film. Now in 2012 things are finally beginning to look up for her, she hosted Saturday Night Live for the fourth time, and though reactions to her performance were mixed, it wound up being the highest rated SNL episode of the season (not counting the special with Peyton Manning), and now she has a guest apperance on Glee and is currently scheduled to play Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime biopic Liz And Dick.
