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.

Suggest adding this to the Video Games section of America Saves the Day:

  • Brutally subverted and attacked in Spec Ops: The Line. Both Konrad (leading the 33rd) and Walker continually disobey their orders in an attempt to help the people of Dubai after a sandstorm strikes the city, but their efforts are driven more by a Power Fantasy of becoming a hero than by any genuine sense of altruism, and ultimately they only succeed in making a bad situation even worse. Meanwhile, the CIA also has a plan to "save the day" in Dubai: namely, killing every survivor of the sandstorm so that the truth of the atrocities the 33rd has committed in Dubai in the name of maintaining order will never get out, for fear of this causing a war between the US and the Middle East.

Suggesting that the previously proposed edit be done without the "brutally". Thanks!

Per consensus in the Projects Five-Man Band thread, could all the subpages to Five-Man Band (there's about 20, I think) please be locked? The TRS thread leading to the Projects thread had decided that all new examples needed to be discussed before possibly being added, and there's a prominent commented out notice at the top of each page to that effect, but the notice is being regularly ignored.

4997: The edit to The Bible is done. I don't think Poke the Poodle is exactly right for that replacement...The Scapegoat seems like it would be more appropriate.

4999, 5000, 5003-5005: Done.

5006: All subpages in the 5MB index and all the sub-subpages are locked.

For 4999, you missed one thing. You added italics to Mercy Thompson and Kitty Norville, but didn't add Literature/.

(That was on Sex Slave.)
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

[up] D'oh! Thanks for catching that, I got sidetracked. They're done.

I made Sandbox.The Fanfiction Forum; please swap it in as the main page. The changes are visible in its history. Stuff done: Blatant ZCEs removed, indentation corrected, hyphens changed to colons in the trope list, and description edited for grammar and to remove gushing in the form of making it sound as big as FF.net or something.
Merge those duplicates! Fix that factual error! Delete that shoehorned non-example! You have the power! Meta Four

The Ptitle Replacement System will need the link to the "Screwed up custom titles to fix" thread removed, as it was just closed. This could be a viable replacement, although I am not 100% sure (so whoever answers this edit request might want to get more opinions):

Q: How do we report problems with the feature?
A: Try to repeat the custom title input. If it doesn't work, make a thread in Tech Wishlist & Bug Reports. Please make sure you've read this FAQ before reporting an issue there.

Also, The Au Z Zie Gamer needs adding to the Let's Play index.

The Complete Monster clean-up forum has approved of rewrites for the Mayuri and Aizen examples on the Monster.Bleach page. May the two entries in the Shinigami section, and all of their sub bullets, be deleted, while the two entries below go in their place?
  • Mayuri Kurotsuchi, the Gotei 13's resident Mad Scientist who frequently conducts experiments on living subjects. When he's first introduced he used his unwilling subordinates as human bombs against Ishida, and, when one of them survived, Mayuri blew him up anyway because bombs "aren't supposed to come back." During his fight, Mayuri reveals to Ishida about how he conducted horrible "experiments" upon his fellow Quincies, among which included opening their skulls while they were still alive, chopping them and grinding them up, and even forcing one to burn his son to death For Science! One of his victims was Ishida's beloved grandfather whose mutilated corpse Mayuri keeps a picture of on his person, even proudly showing it off to Ishida during their fight. After the Soul Society Arc Mayuri no longer acts as an antagonist to the heroes, but he's still the most vile and depraved out of all the Gotei 13, and it's clear that he only works for the good guys for the chance to work on his sadistic experiments without repercussions. In fact, Mayuri was willing to kill all of his fellow Gotei 13 members by destroying the pocket dimension they were in just to take out Aizen. He was only stopped from doing this by his subordinates' interference. Mayuri also displays a callous disregard for the life of his "daughter" Nemu. He savagely beat her after she had been severely injured and, when an enemy had reduced her to a withered husk, Mayuri's only response was a spike of scientific fascination.
  • Sosuke Aizen is a sociopathic ‹bermensch with a god complex who considers himself above the notions of morality and decency adopted by "lesser beings." Uncaring for anyone but himself, Aizen has a habit of using and betraying anyone close to him. Examples of this include testing out an experiment by turning his former captain, Shinji Hirako, into a monstrous abomination along with seven other shinigami officers, attempting to murder his subordinate Harribel once she had outlived her usefulness, and impaling his devoutly loyal lieutenant, Momo Hinamori, while hugging her, leaving her traumatized for months. Later, Aizen would outdo himself by creating illusions which tricked Momo's best friend, Hitsugaya, into nearly killing her. Aizen also used Wonderweiss Margera as a tool, erasing all of his intelligence, speech, memory, reasoning and emotions just to turn him into a Power Nullifier against one man's weapon. Once Wonderweiss had successfully absorbed the flames of this person's weapon, Aizen had arranged it so that Wonderweiss self-destructed, nearly taking out an entire city with him in the process. Finally, when Aizen had achieved physical godhood, he tested out his abilities by calmly walking through a human city, knowing that his powers caused anyone who came into close proximity with him to blow up. In the end Aizen ended up killing over a dozen of civilians, and even planned on doing the same to Ichigo's human friends just so he could mock Ichigo by hanging up their corpses on display.

On Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil, please replace {{Kieshara}} with Literature/KieshaRa. (In addition to the namespace, the curly-braces are overriding the custom title it should have.)

On My Immortal, please move Poe's Law and Spiritual Antithesis to the main page, as neither is YMMV.

Poe's Law should be deleted - it's pure fandom interpretation that doesn't go on Main/.

<insert title here>
For Real Life, some part of the phrase "or attaching balloons to your house to fly to South America" probably should link to Up, seeing as that's a reference to that, and the rest of that sentence has links as well.

A bit ago, I had requested the Five-Man Band pages be locked due to repeated additions without discussion. This was done, but the four Live-Action TV subpages were missed. Could those please be locked too?

Handling Spoilers should be moved to the Administrivia namespace.

EDIT: I'm going to move Spoilers Off (which isn't locked) to the Administrivia namespace, and there's a wick to it on Handling Spoilers, so it should probably be changed when I do so.

EDIT #2: The Administrivia index will also need updated.

On the WallBangers/ProfessionalWrestling page, change the wick for Awesome Kong from Main/ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin to Wrestling/KiaStevens.

Thank you.

I just have one simple request: that both the Film.Sweet Movie and Main.Ken Park pages be restored. As per the final decisions of the P5, both works are deemed as abiding to the Content Policy.
