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.

I have a version of Horny Devils that's been cleaned of content violations waiting in the Sandbox, if a mod wouldn't mind switching it out. Thanks.

[up] I posted a comment in that thread...haven't heard from anyone else (yet).
There has been a consensus that Hopper is not a Complete Monster and has to be removed from Disney list. While his actions are certainly horrible, he still has one good quality that negates his CM status.

EDIT; Oh wait! stop, don't remove yet. There has been NO final decision yet.

Hello! Glad I found this thread because whenever I needed something changed on a locked page, I would put it in the "this page needs assistance with" page. Is it okay if I still do that or should I start posting in this thread now?

[up]Better here; this thread is dedicated to the job.

Also, Rob Liefeld needs Over The S Houlder Pose renamed to Boobs-and-Butt Pose

Cruft clean up for Wikipedia. "Averted hard" is used twice: under Conversation on the Main Page and Thread Mode.

We should add The Sneaky Guy to Five-Man Band's Associated Character Tropes.

WallBangers.WWE has a The Addams Family wick that needs to be namespaced to Series/.

Ctrl+Alt+Del needs A Worldwide Punomenon renamed to Incredibly Lame Pun

TVTropesTheTVShow.Proposed Recurring Fictites needs one wick to Alice in Wonderland be amended to Literature/AliceInWonderland.
It's perfectly possible to admire building a cannon to destroy the moon, whilst lamenting the act of destruction.
Can Main.Ghastlys Ghastly Comic be restored as a redirect to Webcomic.Ghastlys Ghastly Comic? While there is only a single inbound, there are 43 redlinks that need to be namespaced.

[up] That's rather pointless. I'll just namespace them all — 43 38 wicks aren't that much.

Also Ghastly's Ghastly Comic needs the "Naughty Tentacles" line removed.
I'm on the internet. My arguments are invalid.
[up][up] The subpages need to be restored (or at least unlocked) as well though, and the Main/ redirect is necessary to be able to navigate back to the main page.

There's a wick for Ghastlys Ghastly Webcomic that needs namespacing to Webcomic/ in Troll.
(There's also one in Legal Jailbait, but I assume the page is going to be swapped for the Sandbox at some point in the future, and I've namespaced that one).
The British Plover that isn't British.
[17:27:48] Plummet: Stop being British damn you.
I'm working on that sandbox myself, and yes, that is the intention. There's a lot of examples that are really just Older Than They Look/Really 700 Years Old, some de-gushing, and a lot of namespacing and organizing. I'll post in P5 cleanup to get a second opinion when I'm done by my standards.

I'd like to add an in-universe example to Mondegreen:

  • The song "Pontoon" by Little Big Town came about as the result of a mondegreen. Co-writers Luke Laird and Natalie Hemby wrote a song for Miranda Lambert called "Fine Tune"; a publisher later inquired about the song, but thought that it was called "Pontoon". After Hemby corrected him, the two thought that they actually should try writing a song called "Pontoon".

Windmill, windmill for the land / Is everybody in?

There are 24 Circular Links on Moral Guardians that need to be de-Wiki Worded. (Two of them are just Moral Guardian in the singular).
On Pædo Hunt, there are several works that need namespacing (in order, from the top of the page down, we have):
  1. Spider-Man to Franchise.Spider-Man
  2. The Outsiders is listed as a comic book. Since it's not referring to the S.E. Hinton novel, it probably needs to be wicked to Batman and the Outsiders
  3. Nightmare on Elm Street (to Film/)
  4. Kill Bill (to Film/)
  5. Batman (to Franchise/)
  6. Blake's 7 (to Series/)
  7. The George Lopez Show (page still in Main/) needs to be made into a Wiki Word for linking
  8. Saturday Night Live (to Series/)
  9. The Daily Show (to Series/)
  10. In the Anonymous example, Oprah could be potholed to The Oprah Winfrey Show (still in Main/)
  11. CSI (to Series/)
  12. Dexter (to Series/)
  13. Insane Clown Posse (to Music/)
  14. Grand Theft Auto IV (to VideoGame/)
  15. Perry Bible Fellowship is listed as a webcomic. The folder needs to be switched to Newspaper Comics, and the wick needs to be moved from Webcomic/ to ComicStrip.The Perry Bible Fellowship
  16. Monkey Dust (to WesternAnimation/)
  17. South Park (to WesternAnimation/)

On Mary Sue, there are several instances of The Wesley which need to be renamed to Creator's Pet. There's also at least one wick of So Bad Its Horrible, which needs to be moved to Darth.
On The Fundamentalist, an example:
  • In YuYu Hakusho, the Armed Church of the True Disciples is a fanatical religious sect which believes that the spirit world beings are emissaries from God, preaching a hard-line stance against the Demon World (whose inhabitants are regarded as the spawn of the devil) and who are prepared to fire the Interdimensional Laser at the human world to get their demands met.

Also, The Lonely Island had a link to "Rhianna". The spelling's wrong — that should be Rihanna.

For Monster.Fallout, all I ask is that Fallout should be namespaced. Fallout: New Vegas too.
