Should there be a page for one-shot characters like agent Lyra?

I suppose if you can gather enough tropes about them to the point where it doesn't look like filler

Pulled two instances of:

Pettanko is not a trope. UsefulNotes.Pettanko is a fanspeak term definition only. The tropes are A-Cup Angst (girl is sensitive about her lack of size) or Petite Pride (girl is proud of her flat-chestedness). Anything else is not a trope. Please return this example to the page under the correct trope if (and only if) it fits one of those two tropes.

Something's very wrong with this page. I just edited the Vanessa entry to replace a broken YouTube link with a working one, and after saving, not only is her folder missing, but a huge swath of others, including Suzie, Doofenshmirtz, Carl, and Major Monogram.

Well revert it back, 'cause most of the replaced characters on the page are of "Across the 2nd Dimension", NOT the cartoon itself.

What do you suppose happened?
05:08:24 PM May 13th 2012
I have no idea how to revert it. Or how the main character page link came to lead to the movie character page.
12:12:42 AM May 14th 2012
I reverted it. Does it look good?
10:15:47 PM May 16th 2012
Yes. Yes it does.

But not any more. I'm not editing anything on this wiki until I figure out why my edits are making everything go complete haywire.

Whitewings, try editing a different page to see if it's something automatic. The Wiki Sandbox is quite small at the moment, so it might or might not happen in there; we could fill it with the source of this page and see what happens when you edit it. Over there, it wouldn't matter if something went wrong and it would help work out the problem.

It appears your other edits have the same problem. Please don't edit anything outside the Wiki Sandbox until you figure out the issue.

I'll restore the page.
06:46:42 AM May 17th 2012
Ack! I just opened the page for editing, copied the source, and cancelled the edit. The same thing happened again! I didn't change anything at all, just selected and copied.
06:50:18 AM May 17th 2012
A further update: Opening the page for editing seems to be what triggers the change. I pasted and examined the source in the sandbox, and it was the source for the movie character sheet. Naturally, I cancelled the edit; the sandbox is fine.

The sandbox is always fine, unless you do something REALLY strange, and that can't happen by accident. Remember that to copy the source, there is a "source" button for every page on the bottom left of the top button cluster.

Also, it's the movie character sheet? Hm, is there a way to clear your clipboard (where copied text is stored), just in case it's sitting in there messing with things?

I copied the source using the "source" button, pasted it into the sandbox, reviewed it, saved it, checked it, then edited it... and when I saved that edit, same thing happened. Naturally, I went back in, and removed the P&F code. No sense leaving a mess in the sandbox.

Hrm. Can you use a different computer altogether, and try the same thing? Ditto for a different web browser on your current computer. That might help pinpoint the problem.

If it still happens, try copying the source of a different page, pasting it into the sandbox, and editing that. Maybe use Characters.Harry Potter Hogwarts Students or something. Does stuff still get messed up, does it change to P&F related stuff, or is it fine?

I just edited the Characters page for Legion of Super-Heroes, specifically the entry for Mordru. It worked perfectly.
04:57:59 PM May 6th 2012
I am a tad irked to find an "adults are useless" entry beneath Lina and Lawrence's folder. This implies that they are either idiotic, incompetent, or just plain don't care about their wards. Also, the mention of Linda being an aversion of a "reasonable authority figure" kinda goes against her character as a kind, nurturing mother, doesn't it?
06:18:03 PM Aug 12th 2012
The "Linda is an aversion of a reasonable authority figure" bit was clearly inspired in her reaction in the episodes with actual busting(specially "Quantum Boogaloo")

I just think it makes Linda out to be a female version of a fantasy-forbidding father. It just seems out of character for someone who seems like genuinely caring mother. Also, it was never explicitly shown that Linda was involved in the complete annihilation of creativity.

I noticed that Candace, under Anti-Hero, was changed from III to II on the grounds that "given the chance to bust Phineas on his birthday she did not kick the dog."

Yeah, and?

Dog kicking makes the type III. Puppy was lined up for field goal, and she walked away. Q.E.D.

Any alternate Candace (dream, timeline, dimension, robot, etc.) is very likely to be a Type III.
12:03:52 PM Sep 3rd 2011
Kick the Dog is an act put in the story for the purpose of showing that the character is evil and deserves to die, so no, dog-kicking doesn't make type III.
12:41:47 PM Sep 3rd 2011
Yeah, Sliding Scale Of Anti Heroes says Shoot the Dog, which main sequence Candace will not do. She ain't a type III, Q.E.D.
05:39:56 PM Sep 3rd 2011
Well that makes more sense.
08:02:41 PM Sep 3rd 2011
Patched the article to fix this.
09:15:36 PM May 2nd 2011
I finally got around to moving all of the YMMV tropes away from the character pages. If anyone notices anything weird that I did, or if I missed something, feel free to fix it.
10:42:32 PM Mar 18th 2011
Robbie Rotten, 9Darthmaul, can we PLEASE work out whether or not the trope applies to the character in the Discussion page, as opposed to making an edit war?
