    Need help from Exalted fans. I set up a character sheet that needs major amounts of revision/adding. Can you guys help me with that, or point me to the right people/pages around this site. Reply

      This is more appropriate for the forum. There's a subforum for tabletop games, right? Or, Hell, you could check out the IRC.

    Would I be allowed to make these changes to Locked Pages?


      This thread is where you go for this stuff. You say what edits you want to make and we (the mods in general, that is) decide if they're appropriate.

    We've got three quotes on And Some Other Stuff. Any suggestions on which to keep and which to send to quotes/? Reply

      The top quote(on the page) can be sent to quotes page.

      Hmm, but that's the trope namer...

      Then move one or both of the others. :-)

      Okay, then. Middle quote moved.

    What's the suitable place to report an edit war? We're having issues with the listing of Obvious Beta on the Super Robot Wars Judgment page, and it's clear that only moderator intervention is going to convince Master Don at this point, since he hasn't bothered to respond to me on the discussion page at all before putting it back on.

      He's edit banned now. He'll have the opportunity to explain himself.

    On the Fanon page, there are several links to pages for other mediums. At the bottom of these pages, there's the traditional "This page has not been indexed. Please choose a satisfying and delicious index page to put it on." messege, and I was wondering:
    • If there is an index to put these on
    • If there isn't, should I make one?
      • Can I make one? If so, how?

    Thank you for you time tropers! ^___^ Reply

      The Fanon page should be the index for the individual mediums.

      I set the page as an index, so it's indexing them now.

      Thank you. ^_^

    I came across a strange page today: Carnival of Souls appears (at least to me) to be blank, however I thought it was odd that a blank page was on three indexes. Looking at the page source, I see a description and trope list that I can't see otherwise.

    Is anyone else getting the same thing? Reply

      I opened the page to edit it and the article was in the edit page. I hit save and there it was. It needs tropes.

    Ok, there are some series with, like, a LOT of running gags. Some of them list all of 'em on the main page, some don't even bother. Where should you list them if not the main page? YMMV? Trivia? Reply

      It is a normal trope, so if you see a page for a work that uses one (or more) such gags and doesn't have an entry for it, add it in. Wiki Magic fixes such problems.

      I think if your aim is to minimize clutter, you should either simply say "This show has a lot of Running Gags" or "To name just a few, [example A], [example B], and [example C]" rather than creating a 15+ bullet list.

    I have been edit-banned just now. But I don't understand why. Perhaps I've made too many edits... this is the thing I suspect. But I've not insulted everyone, I've not deleted any page, I've only changed the page Stock Dinosaurs to enhance it and make it more readable and more ordinate. The last edit I made was the last one in my mind about this page, I've finished that work at last: but I still have to complete the Prehistoric Life section I have created a week ago, transferring the exceeding material from Stock Dinosaurs to it. Who'll finish the job in my place? [sad]

    Please, allow me to finish the Prehistoric Life page, and to make the changes I did in the Main Stock Dinosaurs page to I Soliti Dinosauri (the Italian translation) as well (I'm an Italian troper, sorry for my bad English...).

    I promise that I'll never edit Stock Dinosaurs anymore. The same about every other page that is not Prehistoric Life and I Soliti Dinosauri. If I'll edit something other than these, I'll deserve the permanent edit-ban. Reply

      You want this thread in the forums. That's the only place to argue a ban or get one investigated.

      OFFICIAL DISCLAIMER: I am not a moderator or administrator (and no, I don't play one on TV)

      That said, you're more likely to get this noticed by someone with the power to do something about your ban, and do so faster, if you post in the "Edit banned - would like to edit again." thread.

      EDIT: Ninja'd by Fighteer, whose fastness is rivaled only by Fast Eddie.

      Your name isn't on the edit-ban list that I can see. Did you post in "Edit-banned, would like to edit again"?, the pinned thread in forum? It may be that you got assigned an IP by your server that has been banned due to some other user.

      Thanks for the information, I've copied my message in the correct thread. I've also read the private message. Now I've more hope it was a mere misunderstanding.

      I succeeded to edit I Soliti Dinosauri! Thank everyone!!!!

    What is this? It's a mess. Reply

      Vandalism. By Tear Drop, who I'm pretty sure was edit-banned a while ago. Not sure if we should revert or wait for the mods to show up.

      I tried to revert it but the post history's messed up.

      Well he's gotta go. Some just do not get the message. I doubt a serial vandal will be missed.

      Wait, I though Tear Dop was already edit banned... Can they really still edit discussion pages? O_O

      He screwed with that before being banned.

      Really? I thought you could still post on discussion pages when you were banned.

      You can, but the vandalism was before.

      There are multiple levels of bannination. Some allow certain types of edits, some don't. The nastier one is now in effect.

    How do I move something on the main page to the YMMV, WMG or any other page? A certain page I'm editing is consistently being forced to drift into a wall of text. Reply

      You delete the example with an edit reason like "moving YMMV tropes to subpage". Then you create the YMMV subpage if it doesn't exist by changing the "Main" in the URL to "YMMV" (caps matters). Edit that page and paste the examples, then set the type to "a subpage".

    Looking for TWO pages about websites:

    1) YouTube channel about four/five "critics" who review stuff. All I know is that one of them (a woman) was absent for several videos for being too violent.

    2) Website about a reviewer who reviews movies. All I know about him is that he really hates The Lion King!!!

    Please somebody help me!!! Reply

      I think the second one is Confused Matthew. Don't know about the first one.

      Number 2 is likely Confused Matthew, from what I've heard of him.

      I think you might be looking for You Know That Show. Or, kind of, since you're specifically looking for the works pages for some works you can't remember the names of.

      Thank you all!!!

    The first installment of my liveblog (Here) disappeared since last night. In fact, the Table of Contents still lists the remaining installments as 2-9. Any idea how that might have happened? Or how it can be reversed?

    I started another liveblog to run concurrently with this one earlier today, if that's at all relevant, but I can't imagine how since several others have multiple Liveblogs and don't seem to have this issue. That said, if necessary I'm willing to abandon the new one if it's the root of the problem.

    Edit: Okay, by now I've rewritten it, but I'm still curious as to why it happened and how I can avoid it in the future. Reply

      Nobody have a clue? Because I found the comments to that first installment here, in a completely unrelated liveblog by somebody else, which has itself been blanked.

    I've tried linking to my troper page (nothing there right now, but I'm woking on fixing that), but that seems to be beyond what my Wiki Magic is capable of. Will I have to change to a more Wiki Word friendly username, because my current one starts with a zero, not an actual O, and that might be what's messing up my attempts. Reply

      That's exactly what's messing it up. You'll need to make a ptitle: Tropers.0blivionmobile. Click that to make the page. And your name in the forums won't link there.

      Ah, you want {{Tropers/[~ptitleb75b6ukc~]}}, don't you? The other is a Mainspace.

      ...how the heck do you use ptitle markup anyhow? I don't know if we have a guide for it.

      Tropers.ptitleb75b6ukc is the correct link. And instructions for ptitles are on Text Formatting Rules.

    Is there a point where a work is too obscure to get it's own page? I found a page today for a video series where the entire page was made by the guy who makes the videos. In addition, the "series" only has one video up and it has less the 500 views since it went up in December. It also claims to be the trope namer for a different trope, which seems odd to me since it seems like that trope's page is older than the series. Reply
