This thread is for requesting edits or unlocks to Locked Pages or for requesting locks.

Please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  1. Check Locked Pages and Permanent Red Link Club first. They can provide guidance on what are good and bad requests.
  2. Include working links in your request to the page(s) in question.
  3. Pages cut a while ago were automatically locked. Before asking for an unlock, make sure that the article you want to create is in the proper Namespace, has gone through YKTTW if it's a trope, and otherwise fulfills our guidelines for Creating New Pages.
  4. If asking for edits, state your changes exactly as they should appear on the page, including proper Example Indentation, namespacing, and pothole and quote formatting. And make sure that what you want to add is actually a valid example.
  5. We do not edit archived articles, even to correct links.
  6. Main redirects are no longer being created for namespaced work pages. Don't ask for one.
  7. Some locked pages have ongoing cleanup threads, like Complete Monster (Thread), Five-Man Band (Thread) and any locked Trope Pantheon page (Thread). Other than purely technical requests, edits to these pages ought to be discussed in these threads first.
  8. Work pages made in the wrong namespace, pages banned under The Content Policy and the 5P Circuit and subpages that are disallowed (like Headscratchers pages for tropes) are valid reasons for requesting page locks.

NOTE: Edited with OP's permission.

Sorry that I can't link it, but without a discussion in the Five-Man Band thread it can't be added.

RE: the Naruto request - As was said, linking to scanlations is verboten.

5101: If it's been discussed, that's fine, but I'm not doing the legwork to find the discussion. Where does the discussion start?

On FiveManBand.Comic Books, need Literature/ added to Orlando: A Biography and {{Raffles}}.

(Honestly not sure those are valid examples, but that's a discussion for another thread. And since I'm not sure they're not, might as well namespace 'em.)

"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

On Monster/Film, please change the Wick for Hannibal Rising from Main/HannibalRising to Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs.

Thank you very much.

This is more of a peripheral question: Is there any plan of replacing Administrivia with Sandbox.Administrivia?

[up] I, personally, have no objections, but that's something that Eddie may need to approve. I'll mention it.
No objection.
Goal: Clear, Concise and Witty
In uffish thought
One item before that switch is performed: I think the Get Known link (currently in the very last section) should be more prominent, possibly under "Editing Basics", but can't think where exactly to put it/how exactly to phrase it. Could someone, mod or otherwise, do it? Ta.

Put it under "The Basic Stuff", at the bottom of the file, like so: Get Known: How to get access to this site.

Also, I added some index tags into the sandbox so that the index bar isn't disrupted by auto-redirects like Ask The Tropers.

Inheritance Cycle The Who Wants to Live Forever? example includes wangst (there may be more pot holed), can it be removed? It's a wee bit offense to me and it's supposed to be a YMMV any ways.

On George W. Bush:

  • Please move Beam Me Up, Scotty! and Fan Nickname to Trivia.
  • Remove Never Live It Down. It wasn't showing a red YMMV dot because the page type was set to Useful Notes instead of Creator. Now it is, and it needs to be removed since we don't usually do YMMV on living people.

5114: Do you have another way to rewrite that example? I haven't read the books...and to be frank, a troper's personal feelings about an example are irrelevant.

A couple of requests for Locked Pages:
  1. Costa Rica needs to be taken off, as it's open.
  2. There are several references for "New policy" that need to be changed to Content Policy.
  3. Euroshlock needs a locking reason added, assuming that the locking tool has one.

[up] Done.
Just make wangst angst.

The idea is that the character doesn't know if there is a God. An heaven or hell. Every race has their own deities (except the elves). Since he gets taught by all the races, he has no idea who to believe. Also, he is thrust into a war and gets to see about a hundred or so people in a heaped up pile being burned, so he may be a little concerned that the same would happen to him. Oh, and when he saw those corpses, he was 15 and IMMEDIATELY was almost killed.

Short version: He has a reason to be worried and upset, so angst makes more sense than wangst.

I'd like to cross-wick a newly-launched trope. I'm not familiar with the work, so I'm posting the example as it appeared in ykttw discussion with some added formatting.

The locked page is Gor.

—>"He was speaking to her in Dust Leg, slowly and clearly. "Yes, Master," she whimpered, in Gorean. "Yes, Master." It amused me that the youth, like so many individuals to whom only one language is familiar, so familiar that it seems that all humans must, in one way or another, be conversant with it, seemed to think that the girl must surely understand him if only he would speak slowly enough and with sufficient distinctness."

Hope it's all right.

EDIT: The quote doesn't view quite all right in my post. I'm not sure why as it looks OK on the trope page.

[up][up] Fair enough; it's done.

[up] I put that in the first section; is that right?
5123 XFllo1st Apr 2013 08:35:49 AM from Prague , Relationship Status: Crazy Cat Lady
[up] I think that's right. The troper who posted that example in ykttw mentioned literature, not the movie series. Thanks!
For Underboobs, please add from Dog Days Yukikaze and Adelaide, who both sport this look with their swimsuits.
On the complete monster page, I think we came to the conclusion to cut everyone but Kronos, Kalas, Martins, Kern, and Daimler from he Highlander TV show example.
