This thread is for requesting edits or unlocks to Locked Pages or for requesting locks. It can also be used for technical requests to moderators such as creating new pages in the Main/ and other restricted namespaces without going through YKTTW.

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.

The Complete Monster clean-up forum, has decided neither Daniel Shaw nor the Ring Director from Chuck count for this trope. I'm here to request their deletion from Monster.Live Action TV.

We'll be going out of town this weekend, and I'm not certain if we'll be taking a laptop with us. I'll try to catch this up tomorrow before we leave, but I'm not promising anything.

"In distress", my ass.
In No Real Life Examples, Please!, the following entries need adding, as per the "Real Life section maintenance" thread in Long Term Projects:

* AxCrazy: Calling RL people crazy
* YellowPeril: Villain trope, as well as stereotyping Asians.

If we could please have the Gundam subpage for Complete Monster locked? All the examples have been agreed upon, the next series isn't due for a few years, and the page has caused us issues in the past, so we think now would be an opportune time.
In Final Fantasy VII, there is this trope:

The Starscream: Rufus is revealed to have been this to President Shinra in Last Order, secretly working against his father in hopes of replacing him, but Sephiroth solved the problem for him.

Now, I'm seen Last Order several times and unless there is some text message that was in Japanese, Rufus never shows up or is even mentioned in the 22 minute short. Maybe the original writer meant Crisis Core? Idk, but this is wrong to the best of my knowledge.

Edit: Before Crisis showed Rufus as The Star Scream, not Last Order.

Double Edit: Also, any instance of the name "Last Order" being used needs to pot hole to the new page for it.

5217: That lock was meant to be temporary. I unlocked it and noted that if the Edit Warring started up again, it was going to be re-locked permanently.

5218, 5220, 5221: Done.

5222: So it needs to be added as an aversion?

5223: Done. I rewrote at least one of the examples a bit; check the edits and make sure I got them right.

5225: That's something best settled on the discussion page.

5226, 5228, 5229, 5231, 5232: Done.

5230: I think that one's done right; LMK if I missed/messed up anything.

Another No Real Life Examples, Please! edit request, for adding an entry:

* JumpingOffTheSliperySlope: "Evil" trope.
Another Complete Monster edit request. Link to the discussion.

Please delete The X-Files examples on Monster.Live Action TV. It was agreed that the show should have a sub-page, so please add this link: Monster.The X Files. Thank you!

Please add the Franchise/ namespace for Godzilla on Barack Obama and The Fundamentalist.

And on Monster.Film, same namespace add and a few works need to be wicked - Film.Destroy All Monsters, Film.Godzilla Mothra King Ghidorah Giant Monsters All Out Attack, and Film.Godzilla Final Wars.

ETA: Okay, I have no idea why All Out Attack keeps adding a hyphen, but that shouldn't be there, the work exists.

[down]Oh, that's what it is, thanks for the explanation. smile

That redlink is a valid and working link, but it's broken by the forum autohyphenator.

Every film should end with a Deus T. rex Machina
Fox News Liberal recently had its real life examples cut, so it should be added to No Real Life Examples, Please!.
I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with a tuning fork does a raw blink on Hari-Kiri rock.
In uffish thought
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, bottom of the description: Please (a) change "As of April 2, TV Tokyo will begin airing the official Japanese dub of this show." to "On April 2, TV Tokyo began airing the official Japanese dub of this show." or, preferably (b) remove that line altogether — we have no such lines for other dubs, and it's just out of place.
5233 Will do. Looks good so far.

Under Double Standard, Ms. Fanservice should be moved from the "Sexist Against Women" section to the "Not Sexist in Nature" section because that entry states how a Ms. Fanservice character could be used without being sexist.

New agreed-upon entry to add to the Complete Monster Film section:

  • Jerry Dandridge from Fright Night (2011) stands in stark contrast to the original film's charming and even likable monster. The film opens with Jerry having slaughtered a family, including the teenage son, out of suspicion the boy was spying on him. Jerry reveals himself to be a savage predator who kidnaps and feeds on people, keeping them locked up in his private larder. When Charlie Brewster tries to rescue a woman Jerry held hostage, Jerry had been toying with them both and had already turned her, letting her die in the sunlight solely to mess with Charlie. He's more than happy to tear the throats out of innocent bystanders and turns Charlie's girlfriend into a vampire in front of a helpless Charlie, and later mocks him as he makes out with her. While Dandridge in the original held a certain elegance, the remake's version is nothing more than a savage, sadistic predator.

I know this: if life is illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me.

[up] Done.
[up][up] Can that be namespaced?

On Rob Liefeld, please change the Superhero Packing Heat entry from "Trope Codifier and Trope Maker" to "Arguably the Trope Codifier, at least in terms of the tropes popularity for the '90s Anti-Hero."
