To aid new editors (read: the ones whose [[TVTropesWillRuinYourLife life and]] [[JustForFun/TVTropesWillRuinYourVocabulary vocabulary have not yet been ruined by this site]]) in creating new works pages, here is a helpful checklist to quickly put together a respectable, solid, non-YMMV tropes list for a new article:

!!Before you begin:

* Click on the "Related" button on top of the intended new page to see if some trope pages already contain examples from that work that link to it. If it turns up nothing, try replacing the {{namespace}} with "Main/".
* Do a site search for the work's title to see if there are examples that were already identified by others but not yet linked to the new page. Copy them to your page and add wicks to the trope pages.
* Find existing pages for similar and/or related works (e.g. parts of the same series or written by the same author) and see if there are trope usage overlaps between them and your work.

!!Questionnaire:

* What are the main characters' names? Having them listed beforehand helps a lot.
* Which CharacterizationTropes sum up their personalities best?
* Do they work as as team? If so, which tropes from TheIndexTeam apply?
* If it's an action-heavy story, which WeaponsAndWieldingTropes can you recognize?
* What are the bad guys' names? Which {{Villains}} tropes apply to them? Do they act as a team?
* What is, briefly, the {{Plot}} and the CentralTheme of the story? Does it fall under any of the common {{Plots}}?
* Which ShadesOfConflict are present in the main plot? Are there {{Anti Hero}}es among the cast?
* What is the city/country/world the story takes place in called? Which {{Settings}} tropes apply?
* What {{Genre|s}} and subgenre does the story fall into? If it's a video game, what {{Video Game Genre|s}} is it? Which genre-specific tropes listed on the genre page can be found in this work?
* What unusual aspects of the work do you usually try to interest others with? Is there a trope for that?

!!And one more thing:

* Don't try to do everything yourself. Once you have a handful of tropes listed, cross-wick them to let people know about the new page and let the WikiMagic do its thing!
