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.

A hottip on DethroningMoment.Zero Punctuation needs changing to a note.

Anime-ted - Done, but I didn't change all the succubus/incubus examples...the ones I left that aren't in titles or starting a sentence may need checking for accuracy, something I don't have time for right now.

Otherwise, we should be caught up.

In Side Effects Include..., the link to Panexa is broken. A better link would be . Also, I suggest adding dry mouth to the end of the list of side effects at the beginning of the page. I realize this is already an , but this is one I have heard many many times in many actual advertisements, and it always comes at the end of a list of much more serious effects. This I imagine is based on the marketing theory that people really only pay attention to the first and last items on a long list, so all the serious effects should be hidden in the middle. Being this is often seen in Real Life Advertising, it would add some extra humor to an already very funny gag.
I know my momentum exactly.

[up] I fixed the far as the dry mouth thing, I think it's overkill but if others want it it can be put in.

As per discussion at the Complete Monster Cleanup page, the following examples need to be cut entirely from the Video Games page. From the first subfolder:

  • The Pfhor in the Marathon example because it only talks about Tycho (who does count at this stage
  • The Combine from Half-Life 2, as it violates our "No Organisations" rule (that is, entire organisations can't be listed as CompleteMonsters because a Complete Monster has to be more henious than his peers)
  • Replacing/Swapping the first bullet point of SystemShock's SHODAN with the following;

  • System Shock: SHODAN. After the hacker removed her ethical restraints from her, SHODAN took over Citadel Station, hacked into the machinary, putting the security system and protocol droids at her will, and turned the people on board into her mutant zombie slaves, even the man whose idea it was to unleash SHODAN in the first place. To top it off, she planned on using the station's mining laser to destroy Earth and turn the survivors into mroe zombie slaves.

  • The second dot point of System Shock to be cut because it doesn't add anything but This Troper, exclamation marks and the like.
  • The King of Fighters subpoints after the main one
  • All of Fate/stay night
  • Lord Galcian from Skies of Arcadia
  • The Hitman example, starting with "In the second stage of Hitman Contracts"
  • The Bioshock2 example (not any of the Bioshock ones)

From the third folder:

  • The Supreme Commander 2 example, right at the start of it.
  • General Sarrano from Bulletstorm

On Ghastlys Ghastly Comic, can Rape as Comedy please be changed to its new name, Black Comedy Rape?

[up]About the character yes. But the example itself is horrible because it doesn't describe why he's a CM, so it needs to be rewritten entirely.

There has been a consensus that Soto and Captain Gutt don't count as a Complete Monsters. Soto is on Western Animation page. Gutt is not. Can you remove Soto?

TV Tropes' very wikibot
A few wicks left for Alfred Hitchcock and Steven Spielberg. See:

Change to Creator/ in both cases.

We're done to here. Some of [up] are archives, so they won't be edited.
Please change Main.Christina Hendricks into a redirect to Creator.Christina Hendricks, then lock the Creator/ page. (Move discussion if applicable.)

edited 5th Jul '12 9:38:31 AM by DarkConfidant

I've directed several wicks to Film.Pinocchio, even though the page is empty — maybe somebody will eventually create a page for the Benigni movie.

In the meantime, and as the page is locked, could somebody make it a redirect to the Pinocchio disambiguation page?

Edit: Additionally, one wick to Pinocchio on Monster.Disney should be amended to Disney.Pinocchio.

It's perfectly possible to admire building a cannon to destroy the moon, whilst lamenting the act of destruction.

On Ghastlys Ghastly Comic, Pokémon needs to be namespaced to Anime/.
"Learning without thinking is labor lost. Thinking without learning is dangerous."
On Hentai, there is a hottip which needs to be converted to note markup.

Also, in paragraph four, Anime is inappropriately capitalized.
On It Was His Sled, Titanic, Citizen Kane, and 300 all need to be migrated to the Film/ namespace.
On About Images and Copyright, the bottom of the pages mentions the Image Pickin' forum. I think that a Courtesy Link would be helpful here. Same with the Wiki Talk forum.
On The Ptitle Replacement System the bottom sentence should be scrapped, since Examples Are Not Recent. Also, there should be something to note that the migration is complete, barring one final check when Eddie has the time to print something out.
GameBreaker.Fire Emblem has been locked due to frequent edit warring. However, it suffers from poor example indentation, natter, and all-around poor style and organization. I request to swap in Sandbox.Fire Emblem Game Breaker, which I have cleaned and organized.

Monster.Disney needs High Octane Nightmare Fuel wicks removed

There has been a consensus that Mirage doesn't count as a Complete Monster. She is on Disney list. This was already long time ago, but I have been ignored the first time. This is how the entry looks. Can she be cut since she doesn't count?

  • Mirage (Name's the Same not that one), because unlike the other villains, she has no motivation in destroying Agrabah other than for her own malice. Iago even mentions her a evil incarnate.

Done to here.
A couple of wicks were missed in It Was His Sled - a wick to Citizen Kane in the quote at the top of the page (to Film/) and a wick to Family Guy as well (to WesternAnimation/)

The Other Troper
Item #190 on Evil Overlord List Cellblock A should have Unfinished, Untested, Used Anyway potholed in there, since that item is the tropes' page quote.
I'm on the internet. My arguments are invalid.
