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.

On Fallen Creator, I like to ask for an edit to the Karen Traviss part in Literature. It has some outdated information. Cut the part that says "and is slated to start writing the next set of Halo novels. Only time will tell if she will alienate those fanbases as well." Replace it with this:

There's also some namespacing within the article that's needed, like The Lion King getting the "Disney" namespace.

[up] Done, as a 3rd-level bullet point under Traviss' first entry. I also namespaced the Lion King entries, but I don't have the gumption right now to tackle the entire article.

No problem. Only quibble is that you forgot to delete the line "and is slated to start writing the next set of Halo novels. Only time will tell if she will alienate those fanbases as well." It's right after Bigger Bad in the Traviss entry.

That, and apparently the Brian Bendis link has become Brian Michael Bendis. Changing that is my last request.

On All Gays Are Pedophiles, hoped to add this example:

  • In Game of Thrones, the eunuch spymaster Varys comes across as Ambiguously Gay, and because of a belief in this trope, some of the other characters at court like to insult him by intimating that he takes sexual advantage of the children who spy for him.

Hey, for the Bioshock Infinite YMMV tab?

  • Draco in Leather Pants: Daisy Fitzroy, due to a combination of tragic backstory and completely understandable motives for destroying the Founders, not to mention a bit of The Revolution Will Not Be Vilified. A lot of people think comparing her to Comstock is massively unfair and reeks of white privilege. Please ignore that she's basically the leader of a movement that would make Bolsheviks blanch at their extremism, put out a hit on Booker because he being still alive complicated her PR campaign, and tried to kill a child for no reason other than her own prejudice...
I'm as normal as anyone can be. Which is to say, not bothering myself with an impossible standard.
If the current example for Resident Evil on the video games subpage for Complete Monster could be replaced with the following please?

  • Resident Evil villains trend towards Tragic Monster, or simply being too inhuman to bother passing moral judgement on. There are two major exceptions.
    • Albert Wesker, who has the worst case of Chronic Backstabbing Disorder in the entire series. In RE 1, he sets up his own team, the STARS, to be killed as test subjects for bio-organic weapons, then resurfaces in Code Veronica to make another attempt on the life of surviving member Chris Redfield. In Umbrella Chronicles he kills Sergei Vladimir in order to secure control of the Umbrella Corporation's data, and in RE 5 he really goes to town, killing Ozwell Spencer (his creator), transforming Excella Gionne (his girlfriend) into a mutated monster, and brainwashing Jill Valentine into fighting her partner, Chris, before trying to kill ninety percent of Earth's population with his new Ouroboros virus, all as part of a scheme to become god of a new world. And that's without getting into the revelations that he murdered his mentor Dr. Marcus (RE 0), or the expermients that he and William Birkin conducted on Lisa Trevor (REmake). Wesker's essentially ambition and treachery made manifest, all wrapped up in a trenchcoat and designer sunglasses.
    • Alexia Ashford as presented in Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, where her love for her brother is no longer a part of her personality, the way it was in Code Veronica and her evil is cranked up a few notches higher. A Child Prodigy who joined the Umbrella Corporation at the age of twelve, Alexia was also an entitled sadist with a serious god complex. She aided her brother in murdering and experimenting on their father, tortured a classmate to death (and recorded the session) for being almost as smart as she was, and eventually injected herself with the T-Veronica virus, which she planned to use to Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence. Reawakened from cryogenic sleep in her twenties, Alexia kills her brother for not waking her up on time, transforms Claire Redfield's Love Interest, Steve Burnside into a monster and forces him to fight her to the death, and tries repeatedly to kill Chris and Claire for no other reason then their presence at her facility. She reveals that her plan is to infect the world with the T-Veronica virus, enslaving most of humanity to her will. When asked why, Alexia just gloats about how, as a superior speciment of humanity she deserves to be Queen.

Oh dear. One more time, on Fallen Creator. The Brian Michael Bendis link is supposed to be namespaced to "Creator", as the link I've typed here shows. Brian Michael Bendis does not have a Main, so currently on Fallen Creator it's redlinked. Fix that, and that's all.

On the Let's Play page, under "Pages for specific Let's Players, " the reference to Super Mario Sunshine Versus should be replaced with LetsPlay.Versus, as the page is now about that series of Let's Plays rather than that particular installment.

I guess you can put it as a sub-entry under Attacking Tucans, since Versus is his series. Kind of like how the three members of The Runaway Guys are under The Runaway Guys.

[up][up]Added those namespaces.

Another for protagonist centered morality under The Bible

  • Jonah, a prophet chosen by God, proves to be a worse person than a group of pagan fishermen his folly endangers as well as the Assyrians he was sent to prophesy to. God uses this fact to highlight that just because the Israel has a special pact for him does not change the fact God is for all the people on Earth.
Modified Ura-nage, Torture Rack
Seeking for Light
[up] That's not an example. While Jonah definitely has an It's All About Me attitude, the narrative explicitly does not condone Jonah's viewpoint.

Nocturna, that was the point as the example was listing the few times protagonist centered morality was not the case since it is otherwise very prevalent. The Jonah entry should be added.

Maybe it's just me, but I think the moe entry on Double Standard needs to be rewritten or just straight-up cut down to the male version. It bugs me how it implies that female characters are not allowed to be klutzy or ditsy or they're an offensive stereotype, somehow.
