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 changing page types.

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.

In uffish thought
Seven hundred years from now, a new breed of Archaeologist will spawn. It shall be called the Virtual Historian, for though it may have a Physical Body, its work will only be on the ExConEv (as the advanced Internet will be known by then [Extended Connections Everywhere]). And this researcher, this Digger into the History of the Virtual World, shall one day stumble across our humble Site that is long since deserted. All Pages will have long been replaced with the Ur-Trope (see Meta Four's page; once they all wick to it, it will become more agressive), save those that were Locked — and even among them, its presence will make itself known in the wicks. Except those precious few, those Chosen Pages: the Archives. And the Historian shall Look, perceiving that these pages have not been edited even for the smallest namespace, and it shall Wonder...

Sorry. I'm feeling silly. wink

Two requests:
  • In Accidental Nightmare Fuel, please add
    If it becomes scary in hindsight, it's Fridge Horror.
    after the Nausea Fuel line.
  • In Fan Fic Recommendations, Paedophilia needs to be changed to Child pornography and the hottip deleted - from the thread that spawned this rule I remember that it's not actually about paedo stuff but more on pornography (and paedophiliac sex is included in child pornography as far as my knowledge goes)

El Goonish Shive needs to be namespaced on Subtext.

For Osama bin Laden:

Lawful Stupid: According to the documents retrieved from his bunker, he objected to the attempted terrorist bombing in NYC where a guy tried to set off a truck bomb — because the guy in question had sworn an oath of loyalty to the United States, which Osama objected to him breaking.

[up] I really don't think we should use Character Alignment on a real person's page even if it's locked.

Anyway, on Panty Shot can the page image's pothole be changed from Anime.Mahoraba to Manga.Mahoraba?
"Learning without thinking is labor lost. Thinking without learning is dangerous."
All Character Alignment pages are No Real Life Examples. It should stay that way. Just invites flames and edit warring.

Especially with people involved in recent events. I could see exceptions for historical characters, but this is a big no thank you.

The Osama edit's a no-go. I made the change to Panty Shot.
Sorry, my bad. I realized before I came back here that it's actually Honor Before Reason anyway, since it refers to one event and not his character. Could it be added under that? That, at least, has a real-life example section.

Could anyone unlock the Inheritance Cycle page? Tropes from book Four need to be added.

Nope, it's a troll magnet. List tropes you want added here and we can put them in.

Unresolved Sexual Tension:' Arya and Eragon at the end of Book IV, and Murtagh/Nasuada. Downer Ending: Eragon leaves Alagaesia forever, Arya is stuck with a job she doesn't want, Orrin doesn't get the kingdom and his country becomes an appendage to the Empire, Nasuada has a whole lot on her plate, and Saphira has to leave Firnen. That seems to be all I can think of for now.

The Downer Ending should be spoiler-fonted.
Madame Vastra: The game is afoot. We're going to need a lot of tea.

Fair enough. Spoiler fonts it is.

Done.
Sorry to waste your time but I need to add this to Final Fantasy VII:

Outside-the-Box Tactic: The Demi spell is surprisingly effective against Emerald Weapon. Demi is a low-level Gravity spell, that does damage equal to 25% of the target's current HP. On most common enemies, it's a waste of time, and most bosses are immune. But Emerald Weapon is not, and until you whittle his HP down, it can do 9,999 damage to him.
On the Fan Fic Recommendations Stargate SG-1 is red link because someone didn't compensate for the hyphen.

Also in Fan Fic Recommendations, Fic Trope Page is a Red Link, and should probably have an escape sequence around it.

[up] I'm alright with leaving the red link, but if others agree with de-linking it then we can make the change.
One more locked page encounter from crosswicking Outside-the-Box Tactic:

On VisualNovel.Fate Stay Night:

Outside-the-Box Tactic: Saber is representative of King Arthur Pendragon. She is vulnerable to items and spells that harm dragons as a result.

(I'm fairly certain this is the last one...)

The discussion for Echo Chamber's old page (here) needs to be moved to WebVideo.Echo Chamber.
