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.

Everything's Worse With Snowclones has this line: This may be the best title if the trope is a really obvious instance of the "playing it up for X when it's not really" schtick across the board. If it's not, you should probably put the effort into coming up with something less muddled.

Given No New Stock Phrases, this should probably be removed.

The newly-restored page for Fifty Shades of Grey has a YMMV sinkhole that presumably should be removed.

Said page also has wonky markup in the links in the description, and a Red Link: All Blondes Are Unpleasant.

For some reason, the Main.Sengoku Rance redirect was cut. So that needs to be pointed back at VideoGame.Sengoku Rance.

"However, being that the series is mostly a parody of those Western cartoons, " I think this should go. I don't think being inspired by a bunch of comedic, silly cartoons to make a comedic, silly cartoon constitutes a 'parody'. It's like saying that when one comedian takes influence from another comedian, they are making a 'parody'.

Adolf Hitler needs Ruined FOREVER wicks removed, as it's Flame Bait now.

We should be caught up except for #3020 (the page doesn't exist as far as I can tell) and [up][up]...that needs some discussion on the page or in its thread in the Anime and Manga forum.
In uffish thought
I believe #3020 would like the page created again (it is locked from being cut). Personally, I think it can probably just be unlocked and function like a normal Headscratchers page, though I can't find its reason for being cut.

On Quotes Wiki, a hottip is used in the first line of the description. It should be replaced by a note, like this:

Here at TV Tropes Wiki, we love our quotes. A lot. Unfortunately, you can only fit so manynote  relevant quotes at the beginning of a trope article before they overwhelm the article itself.

 3035 lu 127, Fri, 29th Jun '12 11:51:44 AM from the Capital of Light Relationship Status: Loves me...loves me not
The hottip is gone.
Oops, edit request for Just a Face and a Caption again, same line:

"Of course, an article about purely visual tropes, like faces, facial expressions, hairstyles, and such are a different matter."

The "are" should be "is"; that refers to a singular (i.e. "an article [...] is"). Also the punctuation should be different, one set of aside parentheses and one set of list commas, instead of two kinds of commas.

Did the wick migration for Jack Chick. There are six wicks left on locked pages where JackChick should be amended to Creator/JackChick. Can someone with superior editing power do this, please?
It's perfectly possible to admire building a cannon to destroy the moon, whilst lamenting the act of destruction.
Actually, they should be moved to ComicBook.Chick Tracts.

Jack Chick and Creator.Jack Chick are redirects to ComicBook.Chick Tracts.

love lockdown, you lose.
Some sort of copy error was made on the Western Animation Complete Monster page in transferring the Family Guy C Ms to the page, and the last line, which reads Crazy Awesome: Adam West, needs to be deleted.

[up][up]Yes, I know it's a redirect. But I think it's a legitimate alternative title. I'm for alternative titles.

Edit: Thanks, lu127!

Done to here.

Three of the wicks on #3037 are archives, so I didn't edit them.

On The Fundamentalist, please replace Philip Josť Farmer with Philip Josť Farmer (Creator namespace). Thanks.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

[up] Done.
World's Toughest Milkman
I don't know if TVTropesTheTVShow.How To Write Season 1 and TVTropesTheTVShow.Character Holding Bin count as archives or not. If not, please change Nakama to True Companions on both pages (one instance on the first page, three on the second, no rephrasing required).

With that, we'll be able to declare the migration complete, with only four (or six) archive wicks remaining.

Ptitleviaitwmfb2hh needs a redirect to Manga.Jojos Bizarre Adventure for 78 inbounds.

edited 29th Jun '12 9:37:27 PM by DarkConfidant

Final Fantasy VII, Touhou, and X-COM all have over ten inbounds - and should be made as redirects to their NightmareFuel/ counterparts.

edited 29th Jun '12 11:13:22 PM by movie007

Also, Ptitle1yvo8o1a5ltl should be redirected to Why Don't You Marry It? for 21 inbounds.
Also, Ptitleviaitwmfb2hh has 0 inbounds now.
On Fetish Fuel, please replace the hottip markup with a note.
