Broken list.: Kiwi Blitz get usage counts

 1 Sabbo, Thu, 9th Dec '10 4:57:23 AM from Australia Relationship Status: Baby don't hurt me!
Around the tropes Gratuitous German and Heroic Bystander on the list, the bulleting kinda... stops working properly.

I've got no idea how to fix it; I hope somebody here does.

Perhaps relatedly, it was better (but not perfect) before I got rid of the quoting on Heroic Bystander. I would restore this, but I'm not so good at remembering how that markup works. >_>

Moderator Meta Four reports that some of the links in that vicinity were breaking the page. Specifically, any URL with more than one percent sign will be misinterpreted as a comment marker (known bug, no workaround), causing things to break around it.

I fixed it by replaces the links with ones using page numbers instead.

Someone may wan tot put a note somewhere that in the future we need to use this method, because the "

This "http://www.kiwiblitz.com/?p=741" is what the link should look like for future links. Remember, if you're not sure, you should preview your changes before you commit them!

EDIT: Right, so, that didn't work. Lets try this again. You need to link using the page number because otherwise part of the URL will devolve into several % signs.

...I see.

Curious, though; why did it only break at that point in the page? There were several instances of % signs being close to eachother, both before and after the Heroic Bystander bit. :/

It's explained under Text Formatting Rules.

Ah. No wonder I didn't notice; it was at the bottom of the page. >_>

That said, the author/artist/whatever-a-person-who-makes-webcomics-alone-is-called has been notified of the links breaking TV Tropes' formatting, and has since fixed all the page links so that they no longer have m-dashes in them. Yay, the usefulness of website-owners being tropers. :P

So I think we all agree that this has been repaired right? How does one take down the trope repair discussion so I don't need to see it every time I come to this page?

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
