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.

I would like to request a quote change for the bible quote

Instead of Genesis 1:1.

I feel hebrew 4:12 is more fitting becuase the bible is talking about itself.

Hebrews 4:12

12 For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

I think even atheists will agree it is more fitting even if they don't agree with the message.

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. C. S. Lewis

[up] I'd have to vote nay on that. There's something more striking about using the first line of the bible.
Don't take life too seriously. It's only a temporary situation.

Well if the idea gets rejected. I will add it to the quotes wiki :)

Hm?
Besides, the first line is probably one of the most recognized, even by people unfamiliar with the source material. I say keep.

Yeah, the proposed line is too preachy. I like the first line better.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Whilst I agree that we should keep the current page quote, I can't help but be amused by the dismissal of a line from a religious text as 'too preachy'.
What's precedent ever done for us?

The site is about media. Not about religion. It's not our goal to force one faith down anyone's throats. It's better to have a quote using the bible as media rather than religion in the context of the site.

^ That verse isn't preachy at all I find that statement amusing too. it ain't "forcing one faith down anyone's throats".On the contrary I would say it is Badass.

However I am fine with it. I understand, you are right this is a media site, not a religious one.And the bible is always a controversial topic.So I am fine with the decision of not changing the quote

I will ad the quote to the quote wiki tough.

Is there a reason that Orwellian Editor doesn't link to related tropes Old Shame or Keep Circulating the Tapes?
Why is Brother-Sister Incest still locked? It's an objetive trope page with an example list, and no obvious signs of edit warring.

Even if there was any specific edit war over it in the past, I'm sure that everyone already forgot about it's subject.

Take a look on Locked Pages for the reason. Also, we should probably include a link to this thread there.
You got some dirt on you. Here's some more!
[up] That page didn't give a reason either.

Brother Sister Incest: Main page only. Subpages are still open at this time. Unfortunately, a bunch of subcategories are still on the main page.

These types of locks are applied to main pages because they don't need more editting.

[up]But some of the examples are stuck on the front page. That cant be it.
[up][up] Even ignoring the folders that are still on the main page, no other page was locked for that reason.

Hm?
Locked because people kept tweaking the definition. Try again.

Well, the Brother Chuck entry on Ctrl+Alt+Del's page asks when we last saw Chef Brian. Speak of the devil... Should really be moved under Long Bus Trip, or something.

I think there should be a separate thread for unlocking page requests.

That's for the mods to decide. Besides, I don't see why that can't be done here.

On My Immortal, the subheading for Take That is a first-level instead of second level. I know, I know, it's a really minor edit, but it just bugs me.
Well that was like playing a game of Whack-A-Mole where "mole" is defined as "Cthulhu". -Count Dorku
Brony? Moi? surely you jest!
in the Inheritance Cycle page, the plot summary seems to be a stealth Take That against eragon, in that it is very similar to Star Wars, in fact, in trying to point out the similarities to star wars, a few key plotpoints have been left out. also,why exactly is this page locked?
He who fights bronies should see to itthat he himself does not become a brony. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, Pinkie Pie gazes Also
^The page is locked because the series probably has a larger hatedom than fandom, at least on this site. Hence the Take That-ish description.
Brony? Moi? surely you jest!
It still needs a better description

Well, why don't you write one up, and we can see if it's an improvement?
