    Hoo boy. Fanfic.Christian Potter Chandler is a Harry Potter fanfic that replaces the title character with... well, you can guess. The fic proceeds to imply that preteen Chris-chan touches himself at night, among other things.

    Anyone else think this one should get the Asperchu treatment? Reply

    I've been noticing an increasing number of articles that have "Hilariously reviewed by popular youtube critic LINK" or "you can watch a great let's play here LINK" as the bottom paragraph. Is this appropriate?

    These links can be fun, but putting them in top of the page seems inconsistent at best and like ugly self promotion at worst. Reply

    How i can edit a word for something like this: "The horror may lurk on your room", that can direct into a Nightmare Fuel page? Reply

      Ah-like-ah-so: [[NightmareFuel/InsertWorkNameHere The horror that may lurk in your room]]

      I can't think of any situation where it would be appropriate for you to do so, however. Potholing links to Moment/Tearjerker/Nightmare pages is frowned on.

    Are custom titles allowed to add extra words? WebAnimation.Neko Sugar Girls has the custom title Nyan~ Neko Sugar Girls. Is that okay, or should we move the page to WebAnimation.Nyan Neko Sugar Girls? Reply

    It seems that after applying links for the Pixiv work page's "troped tags" section, the search tag function doesn't seem to work in Pixiv because all the Japanese texts are automatically converted to unicode, nor can the tags be linked to Pixiv dictionary. It's not just mine, but it also happens to other links. Is there anything I can do? Or should all the listed tropes be converted into only about the site itself? Reply

      Like DA, Pixiv is not a content creator, but a site where people can host their work. It should not be troped as a creative work, and that article is rife with Weblinks Are Not Examples violations. I can't speak to the Unicode problem, but our site may not support all possible international character sets.

    Website.TV Shows On DVD needs a head-to-toe update, in the wake of these news. (Not to mention, the YMMV page consists of nothing but a Trivia Trope...) Reply

      I'm not clear why the page exists in the first place, when it has no trope examples listed and it's hard to picture what kind of tropes it would have examples of.

      I posted that page in the YTTKW crash rescue thread because it's a stub. A work page requires at least three tropes.

    The Makings of Team CRME (a series of five Web Animation/RWBY fanfics) should probably be merged on one page, instead of the five pages that currently exist. The whole series comes out to only 94,000 words, so having six work pages is overkill and screams "entry pimping" to me.

    Because the individual fic pages are going to be cut anyway as part of the "miscapitalised namespaces" effort, would it make sense to merge the whole thing into one page when recreating it? Reply

      It looks fine to me. Word count doesn't mean much. I recently wrote a page that is almost 20 times as long as the story that it is troping.

      I mean, if there's enough tropes for each installment to have its own page I don't see why they can't. There's No Such Thing as Notability after all.

    Recently, a horror story on Twitter called The Sun Vanished was created. It's told post by post, similar to an ARG. There's a lot of interesting things in it, and I feel like it'd be unfortunate not to give it a page. But is it possible? Reply

      If it has enough tropes, I believe the standard is minimum six, then you can create a page for it. We have pages for Twitter narratives already, for example; Tlf Travel Alerts.

      Alright! Follow-up question, I suppose. Does it fall under "website" like Tif, or "web original?"

      That is a good question, I wasn't the creator of the TLF Travel Alerts page and I have often wondered about that myself.

      The WebOriginal/ namespace is deprecated. Original text-based online works go in the Literature/ namespace, like printed books.

      The minimum number of required tropes is three, not six.

    I had moved the Takotsubo page from WebOriginal/ from Literature/ on Jan 2017, since this namespace is depreciated and Web Original fictions should be in Literature, as far as I know.

    I just noticed that, in Mar 2017, troper FuzzyBoots moved it back to WebOriginal/. I'd like to know where to stand over this fact, and exactly what namespace should be used.

    I'll send a PM to FuzzyBoots toward this thread. Reply

      No worries. I can never keep track of which way the wind is blowing on that, so I over-corrected.

    PerpetualJellyfish made an edit on YMMV.Death Battle saying that the way one character died was meant to make their fans angry. MasterHero removed their edit because it was biased. PerpetualJellyfish went back and readded it, added more nattery edits, and removed parts of the page that tried to give a more neutral stance on the fight's outcome, with this edit reason:

    A lot of inobjective view for a Wiki type site. Detractor has a negative meaning. Defending your opinion does not make you a hypocrite. The dislike against superman is way too far from prooved Self proclaimmed fans ( and dragon balll has a lot of them). Goku's death was obviously humiliating and disrespectful one, obviously done solely to piss of db fans

      Ugh. Hopefully we won't need to PRLC yet another DB related page.


      • 1. User who added the example restored it after another user deleted it. That's Edit War.

      • 2. They're Nattering on the page.

      • 3. Not sure about the edit reason, but this is something that needs to be in a discussion.

      We'll need a mod before we do anything.

      Death Battle: Goku vs. Superman...

      Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

      Sent a natterfy to Perpetual Jellyfish.

      Perpetualjellyfish's only edits have been on Death Battle pages. Should we check to see if they're another user's puppet?

    Digimon World: Infamy needs serious help. its trope listings are mostly {{in brackets}} and whoever's adding new ones keeps double-spacing and not using CamelCase. i tried to fix it alone but there's too many.

    Also it kinda feels like they're going for every trope in alphabetical order so A-D have more entries than E-Z combined. Reply

      Sent them a PM.

      Did a little work on it myself, mostly the CamelCase in the D's.

      I've meant to help fix this page, as I have it on my watchlist, but I haven't gotten the opportunity.

      I would agree with the assessment that they're trying to fix in every trope onto the page. And a LOT of them are ZCEs or just them trying to force the trope onto the page.

      It looks like they are making an effort to repair the formatting issues. Please comment out ZCEs and remove forced tropes with edit reasons.

      Sorry for the necro-bump but I checked on the page and it's still got the 'put in every trope ever' issues.

      "* Enemy Mine: A number of the players wish to apply this trope with Agunimon. It will never be applied to Metal Greymon."

      "* Eternal Love: Rain has this for Coal, and from the looks of things he likely has the exact same feelings for her. "

      "* Evil Gloating: Used by the villain IceDevimon (before he was slain) but also by others such as Lucemon and Barbamon. Of the last two only the latter has really paid for it, and even then it wasn't much. The players look forward to possibly ending the demon lord of pride for all of his evil shenanigans towards the main character. "

      "* Evil Laugh: Most of the demon lords seem to have this to some extent, and it makes the players want to punch them in the face. Villains such as IceDevimon also had this before Sorcerymon knocked him off the mortal coil. "

      "* Expressive Ears: A number of animal digimon seem to have this be a trait of theirs, though it doesn't get too ridiculous. "


      The subpages are equally huge.

    I saw the TearJerker.Doug Walker page had been recently edited. Since it's a Creator namespace, doesn't that mean they don't get subpages? Should they be cut? Reply

      I am all for cutting the page since it's talking about the guy himself and not his works.

      If it's about him as a person, then cutlisting it would be a good idea.

      Cut most of the subpages. Should the Quotes and WMG also be cut?

      I honestly don't see the point of WMG pages for people, so it could probably be cut (especially if it's about him and not his work), but I'd imagine a Quotes page would be harmless as long as the contents don't get too personal. I haven't checked either page, but I feel that there's too much potential for WMG subpages for Creator pages (in general, not just this one) to attract gossip.

      I think most internet personalities with trope pages also have subpages, particularly ones like James Rolfe, etc.

      Can we put the ones from his vlogs (as he does persona stuff in them, con stuff can go on though) in the Critic pages?

      YMMV.Allison Pregler and the like are also subpages, but also redirects from Obscurus Lupa. What should be done with those?

      ^Obscura Lupa was how it first started and subpage were related to her show. I think they should stay if the examples are related to the contents.

      For the most part the YMMV subpage for Allison Pregler is about her work, so keep it for now. James Rolfe's YMMV subpage also focuses on his work.

    A multitude of new pages in the wrong namespaces have been made recently, with several appearing to be created by the people that made the works.

    luigiman2201 created JustForFun.The Multi Nation Guys, which is a Let's Play group that has only recorded two videos since 2017 according to the page and was founded by luigiman.

    BlueSectorMirage and luigiman have also made JustForFun.Nintendo Mirage, a page for a Discord server they curated that I'm unsure what, if any, space it should fall under.

    Webcomic.Dr Frost which should be in Web Animation and has links to a cartoon pirate site in the description, also having a DrFrost.Dr Frost namespace. Reply

      I found The Multi Nation Guys on YouTube, but I couldn't find any of their videos. If they haven't uploaded their two videos onto the internet, they shouldn't have a page yet.

      I briefly looked at Dr. Frost and it is, in fact, a webcomic.

      I honestly have no clue where Nintendo Mirage goes.

      Hmm. Guess the 'webtoon' descriptor is misleading then XD

      Luigiman just made a Just for Fun.Pokepals page for another Discord server.

      As for the Discord servers, if it's decided that these servers are tropable works (which I'm not sure they are), we can move them to WebOriginal/ if we can't find any other namespaces for them.

      JustForFun.Oskar Azkanhalyan looks like another one, I can't tell what is meant to be

      Quite a few of these lately - JustForFun.El Paraiso Del Ritmo

I want to add them back onto their pages, but since I already did something like this before, I'm afraid people will get annoyed by me constantly deleting my submissions and then changing my mind and putting them back in.

      Works fine for me. Maybe a connection issue?

      Hm, for some reason this is happening with me as well. I have no idea why it would be the image for this one specific page. All other page images except for this one seem to be working just fine for me.

      Looks fine to me. Try clearing your browser cache?

      I can't see it either.

      @The Rogue Penguin

      Works for me now!

      Very good. This issue pops up with images that have been around since before the upgrade to the new format. For some reason they get screwed up and some users can't view them properly. Clearly there's still a few hanging around.

      I'm suddenly having this same problem with the image on Turns Red.

      Try it now.

    I think http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/ProtonJon/ should return as it shows the personalities the co-coms use when commentating. They have been noted by Jon to act differently at cons. The personalities they show here are clearly in entertainer mode. Even his cat, Bagel, is usually not that desperate for attention as Jon usually doesn't talk to himself or ignore Bagel outside streams.

    But I think http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/HoYay/TheRunawayGuys should be removed. Jon finds it really creepy, and Chugga, while playing it up (because he thinks it's what the fan base wants), has admitted to finding it creepy too. They are real people with feelings, not some fictional characters you can play with the emotions of. Some people even got mad at Jon for dating Lucah because of this which is unacceptable. Reply

      Ho Yay is an audience reaction, and creator pages (of which I think Let's Play pages qualify as) cannot get Audience Reaction subpages.

      I'm seconding a cut on principle.

      [ETA] HoYay.The Runaway Guys has 1622 inbounds. and appears on 4 pages. cutting it might not be easy due to the sheer number of inbounds.

      But the Creator Page rules allow YMMV when "...it's for one of their works that doesn't already have a page or for their general work".

      Since the Ho Yay subpage consists of examples limited to their works, how does it violate this caveat?

      Correct. If the examples are about their work, it's fine. While the moments are from the videos they made, since the subjects of these entries are (mostly) the Let's Players themselves, however, that page may need to be checked.

      I won't process the cut request just yet. Can we find something salvageable?

      Looking over the page, most of what doesn't look like it came from The Runaway Guys was actually a quote from one or more of them. I don't think there's anything that's salvageable in that page. It could use another look, however, so if anyone else could have a look, that would be appreciated.

      IIRC, LetsPlay/ is a work namespace, not a creator namespace.

      This also means Jon's character page is fair game, as it's based on the LPers' portrayal within the work.

      Okay. The character subpage should then be restored. But what about the Ho Yay subpage?

      Can some of the Ho Yay examples be transplanted to other tropes such as Funny?

      A great many of the examples are talking about the Let's Players themselves. I'm not sure if it's in regards to their portrayal or the real life people. If it's the latter, then it needs to be purged.

      That's why I'm requesting another look; I can't figure out which ones pertain to the real life person or their portrayal in the work.

      I've rarely seen a clean separation between the LP'ers and their work on wiki articles. Most tropers don't seem to be able to make the distinction.

      In which case, the page should be cut because it qualifies as gossip on real life people.

      In the specific case of TRG, the Ho Yay is mostly limited to their onscreen portrayals, because all except the most rabid of fans understand that they aren't interested in each other romantically.

      Sorry to dig this back up, but I don't think this query has been resolved yet.

      To reply to bwburke94, that page does read like it was written by those kinds of fans, hence the creepiness factor Jon and Chugga see in it. I still feel it's applying audience reactions to real life people, even beyond the LPer's personas.

    It appears that the NES Godzilla Creepypasta is under the Literature/ namespace rather than the WebOriginal/ namespace, and that the WebOriginal/ redirect was cut. Seeing how this is a web original story, and that other creepypastas are classified under the WebOriginal/ namespace, shouldn't the whole page be moved there instead? Reply

      The WebOriginal/ namespace was discontinued a while back, so no.

      That's not a thing anymore???

      ^If you were responding to me, Administrivia.Namespace briefly covers what happened to the WebOriginal/ namespace and where stuff that used to go there is currently supposed to go. Most of the stuff using it now predates the namespace's deprecation and hasn't been moved yet.

      Edit: The namespace configuration project thread covers the situation with namespaces better than I could.

      Ah, yes, the Administrivia.Namespace page you linked to seems to indicate that Web Serial Novels are to be classified as Literature/. My mistake, though that does indicate that most works on the Creepypasta index should be moved from WebOriginal/ to Literature/ then.

      (Although I think you linked to the wrong thread because what I'm seeing is a thread titled "Needs Help: You Keep Using That Word" that seems to have little to do with namespaces.)

      Link fixed. My computer is old and I'm currently tired, so I didn't notice that the URL didn't copy properly. The link I accidentally posted was left over from a different ATT thread.
