    The text boxes for TLP, P Ms and ATT (and TF, YKTS, Bug reporting...) are only two lines tall, but several lines tall when being edited, making it easier to look over the entire post. Is it possible to make them larger from the beginning, rather then just when editing them? Reply

      On the lower right corner of the white box (inside the white part), you will see a little gray triangle. Click on that and drag it down to expand the text box.

      This can be done in the forums, TLP, ATT, here, TF, YKTS, etc.

      Tried it, but I can't find any triangle.

      It's not so much a solid triangle as it is two little lines. It shows up for me on PC and Mac. Are you on your phone?

    It would be nice if all items one has watchlisted - be them threads or wiki pages - would have one instead of two watchlists. Reply

      I'd add that if that's the case there should be some option to toggle which Watchlist you want to look at, otherwise I think things would get kinda clunky to use.

      This would work well if there was also a filter by page type dropdown.

      I'd like to see the two watchlists as side-by-side columns on one page, as an option. I bet it could work with Wide Load.

    This probably isn't high-priority, but I would like the ability to see markup for a forum post like we can for posts in ATT, YKTS, TF, and TLP. It could be a button that replaces the badge shop one. Reply

    Good news: there's an image uploader right there on the edit page!

    Bad news: once you've uploaded one image, there doesn't seem to be a way to upload another without refreshing the page. Clicking the button again just brings up the first image you uploaded, with no option to upload additional.

    Is there something I'm missing or are we not supposed to add more than one image to an article (this usually comes up in Character Pages) per edit all of a sudden? Reply

      Hmmm, I actually found it helpful at times when I missed to copy the image string and could go back and still find it there.


      I would guess that it is intentional, almost every page has only one image. There's an entire Image Pickin' forum for talking about images, you may wan to try asking in this thread.

    The signature is easy to do, since there's a clear count of how many characters you can use, but the title is tricky as it doesn't tell you and it doesn't stop you if there's too many characters, so you have to guess where the limit is. It would be nice if we had a way of counting down how many characters we had left. Reply

    It's hard to format comments or pages. For example, there's an enter hit after the previous period, and seven spaces after the comma and before "and".

    Did I get it working? I used two enter spaces to make a new paragraph, right? Wrong. there was a three-space indent before "Did".

    Stuff like that. also WIKIWORDS cannot be all caps, even though caps don't matter aparently. Thanks( <—-7 Spaces). Reply

      See Text Formatting Rules.

      Also, the spacing issues aren't particular issues, 'cause seven spaces are incorrect after a comma or before a conjunction. There should only be one space, so the parser removes the extra spaces, as is normal on online forums and wikis.

      Also also, I am unaware of any wiki word that needs to be completely capitalized with all-caps. We use CamelCase to link internal pages, not all lowercase or all uppercase.


      That's helpfull. However, I noticed that on WikiWord it says

      "Note that differences in capitalization are irrelevant between two identically-spelled Wiki Words: Home Page and Ho Mepage link to the same place. This does not make the latter any less wrong."

      So, what does that mean in terms of capitolization? Or are there just 2 wikiwords for the Home Page? Ho Mepage?

    The Index of Indexes has an alphabetization feature that ignores "The." Would it be possible to make all the namespace lists (or at least the Recap/ list with it's 20,000+ entries)note  be alphabetized like this? Reply

      Related: would it be possible to have a counter for namespace indexes? I mean how many pages there are in that namespace. It could be useful when looking at previously undocumented namespaces ("Is it worth keeping compared to other not-so-popular namespaces?"), or to see if there's been a change (leading to skipping unchanged namespaces if you're keeping track of those things).

    Adding or editing a comment, like in here and in TLP, especially when you're not sure of the formatting. Reply

      And in the forums as well. I mean, previewing comments is everywhere such as Derpibooru or e621, but not here....


      There is a preview button for forum posts. It's a white button to the lower left of the text box.

      ^Oh, I didn't see that.

      It's a hassle when you're not sure of what you're formatting and you have to go to the Text Formatting Rules page on more formats that you can't contain from memory.

    It would be a while before we could do this, maybe in a future site update, but I thought it'd be nice if whenever someone linked to the article within the article, instead of reloading the page when you clicked on the link, it would take you to the administrivia page.

    It would take a talented programmer to pull this off, but still. Reply

      The bigger problem is of course that the person clicking on a circular link is not usually the one responsible for it...

      It could at least encourage people who didn't add it to remove it and not do it in future edits.

    I don't know whether this is already in the descriptions and I just didn't see it (which is highly likely) but could you maybe add to the main pages of each trope what the Trope Namer for that trope was. Reply

      With the no-so-recent attitude towards trope namers ("No more trope namers" etc.), I doubt that will happen.

      That can be done by everybody, but by editing. It ain't a technical request, so locking.

    It offers practically no benefit over the line comments (which are introduced by two percent signs with nothing in-between) and only the drawback of killing links that contain escaped nonstandard characters.

    Please remove this syntax from the wiki (and forum) code and only support the line comments from here on.

    Edit: Bugs entry for the percent-encoding bug. Reply

      I don't think it's a good idea to remove a feature that's not actually doing any harm.

      It is doing harm— it screws up links

      So normal ones don't do that? I didn't notice.

      Special characters are percent-encoded, and a pair of characters means two percent in the link, and what's between them is considered a comment by the wiki engine. That's why I support getting rid of this "feature" and only supporting the line comment markup (two consecutive percent signs) instead.

      Edit: Wait, was this already corrected or something? I can no longer reproduce the bug...

      Edit 2: This one does reproduce the bug. It's an URL with UTF-8-encoded special characters, and "%C3%" becomes a comment within the link...

      Oh, I get it.


      Stop bumping. Priority here is not assigned by the order on the query page, and we are still waiting on a developer anyway.

    Okay, call me a professional nitpicker if you want...

    Among the buttons sporting namespace entries on top of the page, the (standard one) longest possible is "WesternAnimation". As such, it is truncated to "WesternAnimati...". Where it becomes silly is that the ellipsis take about the exact same amount of space than it would take for "on", thus it's rather pointless. Pushing up the display limit, even so slightly, would avoid this for a very common namespace. (I don't care about rarer, longer namespaces.) Reply

    I can't remember where exactly, but I've come across instances where people write out examples wanting to put italics or bold lettering within a blue link, but have to write it out the trope multiple times because the website doesn't allow for letter-type overlap.

    A clean example would look like this as one link: ''Too'' much '''BLUE''' lettering

    But to get what you really want, it has to be written out like this as four separate links: Too much BLUE lettering

    EDIT: Finally came across one of the examples in the Narm Star Wars page. Just go down to the "This is TENSE" example under the Phantom Menace section for the Prequel folder. Reply

    The button for pages in the "Myth/" namespace still doesn't have an icon. Wasn't there a discussion about it at some time?

    It would be nice if it has one, it's an accepted namespace. I'd suggest something like an Ankh icon. Reply

    On MediaWiki wikis, if you try to leave a page while editing it, a message appears asking you to confirm if you want to leave and erase your work. Would it be possible to implement something like that here? Reply
