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.

Request for edit to Final Fantasy VII

  • Fandom Rivalry: With Final Fantasy VI for which is the "best" of the series, as well as if Kefka or Sephiroth is the greatest villain. This rivalry is carried over into the critical scene as well, some reviewers and critics declare VII the best Final Fantasy title and one of the greatest video games of all time, others say the same of VI.
I was at the baseball stadium thinking the other day "why does a baseball look larger the closer it gets?" And then it hit me
For OTT.Transcript Two: Film.Despicable Me should be changed to WesternAnimation.Despicable Me

On Administrivia: Discarded YKTTW should be namespaced

In uffish thought
Moral Guardians: The Onion needs Website/ and The Abridging of Haruhi Suzumiya needs WebVideo/, and preferably a Wiki Word link instead of them curly braces.

‹bermensch: Berserk Abridged also needs WebVideo/.

Request for Edit Double Standard Rape Female On Male

Under Live-Action TV: Trueblood
  • While not brought up again, the scene was played straight. And to be fair, some of the women who raped him, were being forced to do it or be beaten/killed, which makes them both victims of rape.

[up]That sounds like a Justifying Edit, which is not allowed.
Requesting edit for Dm C Devil May Cry

  • Wangst: Vergil is too emotionally unstable in the DLC chapter. He blames everybody, even his mother, for not being loved.

This is Rain. Isn't she pretty? :)
If moderators can still edit other people's troper pages, can one alter Tropers.Panctice Squade Cutterback to redirect to my normal page? However, I can understand if you can't or if nobody's wanting to.
I'm not LGBT. I just think Rain's really cool.

Apologies if my humor gets too painful.

I agree with the Under the Dome edit, however for the IT edit, you should know that "eponymous" is the correct word, not "titular".

[up][up] A second cousin twice removed is a blood relative, just a remote one. (A second cousin is your parent's cousin's child, and twice removed just means that there's two generations of separation on one side, so either your grandparent's second cousin or your second cousin's grandchild.)

On Monster.Live Action TV, the link to V-2009 should be changed to link to V (2009).

Also add this to Characters.Final Fantasy VII, on Tifa's section.

[up][up][up] I'm...actually not sure. Titular: IT IS in the title, but the title is named after IT. Hmm...

EDIT: May be right.

The The Vampire Diaries Book Characters lists Used to Be a Sweet Child, which is not a trope and should be changed to Used to Be a Sweet Kid.

Please edit The Bible now that more books have their own pages. The last paragraph before the examples list should read:

Books of the Bible that have their own pages: Book of Genesis, Book of Exodus, Book of Judges, Book of Ruth, Books of Samuel, Books of Kings, Book of Esther, Book of Job, Book of Proverbs, Book of Daniel, The Four Gospels, Acts of the Apostles, Book of Revelation

There's a rogue Nightmare Fuel link on the Let's Play page that needs culling.
[up][up] Additionally, perhaps make that into an index or something?

Request Nay-Theist be added to The Bible because Romans 1 flatly says that all Atheists are Nay-Theist

Forgive the long quote, but

"18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For His invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,[g] in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

Perseus78, for this thread you should write up how you want the entry to look. Something like this?

  • Nay-Theist: Romans 1 declares that existence of God is entirely evident and undeniable and thus all atheists are this.

The following example needs to be added to Gor:
  • Vehicular Turnabout: Naval fights, being of the Wooden Ships and Iron Men type, often use this. Specifically, in Renegades of Gor the river town of Ar's Station use this to supplement their navy. Ar is a land superpower but doesn't have much of a navy, so they fill their holds with infantrymen and swarm their enemy's ships when they get boarded, capturing the ship and then using it against the enemy's other vessels.
No Real Life Examples, Please! should be redirected to the Administrivia/ page.
