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 Edit War, could the image be replaced with this one? It's the same image but slightly downsized (to 270 pixels wide rather than 300), so the line along the bottom of the page won't be interrupted.

[up], 2073, 2074 are done.
I request that Scar be removed from the Disney section of Complete Monster. The Disney CM thread presented various reasons why he might not qualify, and even one of the users who argued for keeping him on the list has since sent me a PM stating that in hindsight he agrees with removing him from the list.

While he was memorably more sickening than the average Disney villain, there is still plenty of space between that and CM-level villainy.

In The Bible, all instances of The Dr Dolittle need to be replaced with Speaks Fluent Animal.

No, that page can not be edited. It has legacy code and is preserved special. Do not touch it.
Reality is that, which when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Streisand Effect has a mention of Fast Eddie that looks a bit iffy. If it doesn't fit, can it be removed to discussion?

Cosine!
Speaking of the Streisand Effect, the Web Original example about "a woman in Wisconsin" has broken hottip markup. ... I'm not entirely clear how it's broken, since the code looks to be perfectly well-formed.

Made the edits to Streisand Effect. The reason for the broken hottip coding was the presence of [ ] tags in the markup. You can't have internal closing square brackets within a hottip anymore.

I brought it up in Ask The Tropers already, but maybe you should look at the discussion for that page as well.

Just one very old item. Which I removed. If any other edits want to get made, they can come here; I'm not watching the Discussion page for every locked article.

Yup, just that one item was what I was talking about.

On Naming a Trope, the quote is indented wrong. The quote should be indented once, and the attribution should be indented twice.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

I was just about to do that but someone else got it first, apparently. Edit: Ha! ninja modding!

Neoclassicism, AKA the Tinkerbell school of economics.
I promised myself to never come back here, but unfortunately I have no option. In the Complete Monster page, there is a hidden message saying: '''NoRealLifeExamplesPlease'''. Not even to call ''[[SelfDeprecation yourself]]'' one. I'm not sure how useful it is to have a link to NRLEP or SD, or the italics and bold, when they can't even be displayed for being a hidden thing. I should simply say: No Real Life Examples, Please. Not even to call yourself one.

Going further into Fridge Logic: Why even putting that there? Because the page is locked, no one is going to check the source code just to receive a warning that is already visible among the indexes anyway.

The page was not always locked. Eddie hid that in comments, without modifying the markup. Since nobody will ever see it unless they're viewing the source, I see no point in worrying about it.

On Chekov's Gun, Where No Fan Has Gone Before should be in quotes, not italics.

I was simply wondering about the uselessness of those links. But if you put it that way, I suppose I can only let it live. =/

The Chick includes the line...

"Yes, we understand that a role very like this could be filled by a male, but this is a trope is component of a Five-Man Band, which is specifically four guys and a girl. Examples of male characters acting in this way can be found in The Heart."

...whose highlighted text (my emphasis) needs its grammar fixing.

For another thing, this directly contradicts what it says about gender on the (also locked) Five-Man Band page, so one of those should probably be edited into some form of consensus. Does The Chick need to be a chick, or not? And does she need to be the only chick, or not?
