    I don't know the word to describe this thing other than "small image." I'm talking about the 10 x 10 (or is it 15 x 15?) image at the top of pages on the wiki that make the different tabs (the white tabs, not the tabs next to the "Edit Page" button) more aesthetically pleasing and interesting to look at.

    If you look at the namespace "Theater/" (one page in that entire namespace) and then look at the namespace "Theatre/" (over 880 pages in that namespace), then you will notice that there is no small image next to the word "Theatre" but there is a small image next to the word "Theater."

    An example would be this page that I was about to move to the correct namespace: Theater.Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular and any given page in the Theatre/ namespace (example one, two, and three).

    Is this just a glitch that I am seeing or is this just a typo in the code somewhere? Reply

    I use the Opera Browser, version 49. I've switched off Opera's own adblock for tropes.org yet I still see the "this is the nth page you have viewed" pop-up. I note it is not in the pulldown list when looking for a way of switching off adblock. Is Opera supported for your site? Is there any way of allowing adblock and Opera to view your site properly?

    I'm getting a weird bug where the page locks itself to about 1/3 of the way scrolled down (about where the sidebar ads go). If I try to scroll up or down it just goes back to that spot and sometime it starts spasming like its trying to go up and down at the same time. Reply

      Indeed, I'm having the same problem. It happens whenever the sidebar ad plays a video.

      I'm having the same problem whenever an ad video begins.

    The T Vtropes pages keep jumping around (usually scrolling themselves to the bottom of the given page). It's extremely annoying and makes the site nigh unusable. Reply

    Probably not a huge issue, but there's a typo if you try to make a page with special characters or starting with a number, like YMMV/6y:

    Error: Sorry, the groupname and title must start with a letter and cannot contain special chatacters.

    It's characters, not chatacters, Please fix this. Thank you.

    When I tried to edit a forum post I made, I instead got a passive-agressive message saying I like to edit other people's posts. Then, when the guy who posted before me edited his post, that edited his post and mine. Reply

      Seems like an instance of the duplicate post bug, where two posts are sent in simultaneously and the software cannot properly distinguish between them.

      A potential fix for the post collision problem is in development testing.

    So whenever I throw a term into the search bar it takes me to a completely blank results page. Not even a no results message or redirect, just an empty white page. Reply

      Is it working for you now? It's working for me

      No, still blank

      The search function requires that your browser permit Google API scripting to run under tvtropes.org.

    Several weeks ago, I was on Ask The Tropers when the part of the page showing the queries became messed up. It looked all jumbled together. Today, it's happened again. I would like to know what's going on. Is this a new formatting system? Reply

      The problem is the use of [quoteblock] markup in query.php. It's not consistently reproducible but has been reported.

    Basically, I'm having trouble with at least two links; here and here which do not at all respond to editing with the intent of making them work properly. (Ref 1 and Ref 2 for clarity.) Reply

      It's an issue with how TV Tropes handles Unicode symbols.

      Wikipedia should have plain-text redirects for those articles. Use them in links instead.

    This was mentioned in a closed 2016 bug report but I'll report it again to be on the safe side.

    Editing my password wipes everything in my profile's additional info section, and sets my time zone to USA/LA time. Minor quibbles overall but an annoyance nonetheless. Reply

      It's already fixed in the development code. Just need to get it released, which should be soon-ish.

    I know it's not a very well-known feature, but Trope Intersect, which was a hidden gem, seems to now be broken. It just doesn't return any results. Reply

    I submitted a bug about this earlier but since it wasn't getting any attention I figured I'd submit it again. I've been wanting to upload a profile image for a while. The problem is, when I click on the image I want to for my profile, I'm sent back to my profile page without the image. Is anyone else having this problem, and if so, does anyone know why it's happening? Reply

    A few weeks ago, I posted about how the index bars in Sugarwiki and Darthwiki turned white with white text in Night Vision. VinnyGreen said it was fixed, but Sugarwiki still has a problem; when you first enter the page, the index bar is still white with white text, but turning Night Vision off, then on again will fix it temporarily; temporarily because if you refresh, it breaks again.

    Edit: Actually, it seems like some Darth indexes are still borked, or at least Horrible is.

    There may be some other Darthwiki indexes that are broken, but I don't know. Reply

    I can't submit edit reasons when I make an edit. It's cutting off the edit reason after just a few characters as if a character limit has been imposed, except that the amount of characters appearing before the cut off changes every time.

    See my most recent three edits on this page for an example. Reply

      Actually, false alarm. I think I used the %% in the edit reason, which just cut off the rest of the edit reason after that point. Apologies for wasting your time.

    Since yesterday, when I go to the Recent Changes page, I always initially get a HTTP 500 Internal Server Error. It goes away if I refresh the page a few times, but this is the only section of the site that's doing this to me right now.

    I should note that the error pops up when I click the "New Edits" link under the Tools section. A direct link like what I did above doesn't seem to trigger the message. Reply

    Cut pages often show up when you press "Random Trope", is there anywhere i can delete them or report them or should i just leave it alone?

    the ones ive found are Selective Squick, Bacon Addiction, You Imagined It, War On Cops, White Knighting, The Princess and the Pirate, Supposedly Rebellious Series, Girls Need Role Models Reply

    I don't know if this is an issue on any other page, but Film.Mishima A Life In Four Chapters only shows the correct custom title when you link to it if you write the incorrect WikiWord Film.MishimaALifeinFourChapters (lowercase i in "in" – I'm guessing the custom title was originally submitted that way). That's just a minor problem, but it gets somewhat more annoying by the fact that I can't submit a fix through the normal custom title system (instead, I have to do it through here). Reply

      Here is the wrong way. You should ask that the page be cut and recreated with the correct wiki word. This can be done via the cutlist. You may want to save a backup copy of the page first.

      Edit: the wiki word used in creation can be inspected on the custom title menu.

      Edit 2: test Mishima A Life In Four Chapters

      VisualNovel.Kisses And Curses has the same problem. It was originally VisualNovel/KissesandCurses and the custom title only showed when it was linked to that way. Then it was cut and recreated as VisualNovel/KissesAndCurses, but the custom title still only works when it's linked to as VisualNovel/KissesandCurses. See:

      VisualNovel/KissesAndCurses - Kisses And Curses

      VisualNovel/KissesandCurses - Kisses & Curses

      Looks like Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare has the same problem.

      VideoGame/CallofDutyInfiniteWarfare - Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

      Custom titles only work with the exact case used to create the article. It's a known issue, but I'm not sure one can correctly call it a bug per se.

      So to sum up: The custom title will only work for the capitalization the article had at the time that article first had a custom title approved. Even if the article is recreated with a different capitalization later, or a new custom title is submitted. If a custom title is given to an article with improper capitalization, that article's custom titles will forever be tied to that improper capitalization.

      Is there any way for a mod to manually delete the custom title?

      Peter and the Starcatcher is another article affected by this issue.
