'''How to move reviews''': You can move reviews yourself. This is how: Go to the review page (it's the rightmost button of the subpage bar). On the top right immediately above the review box, you will see a button that says "correct subject". Click on it. A new screen will appear with two new input boxes, the first saying "namespace", the second "wiki page". "Main" will appear as the default namespace in the upper box. Delete "Main" and enter the namespace to which the page has moved[[note]]Assuming that you are moving a page from Main/ to another namespace, which will be the usual case.[[/note]], then type the name of the page in the second box, using WikiWords. Click the "submit" button just below. Everything should be fine now.

So, you need to move a page, but you're not sure on the how. That's where this quick guide comes in. Unfortunately, we don't have an auto mover tool available to the general public, and all {{wick}}s will need to be changed by hand anyway. Regardless of why a page is being moved, most of the procedure is the same regardless of whether it's a rename, a Administrivia/{{Namespace}} migration, or a TropeTransplant. Our example is going to be a namespace migration from a Main page to a VideoGame namespace. Ads have been disabled for visual reasons and screen shots have been cropped to show important components. All scaled images are clickable to an Image Shack unscaled version.

Added DiffLines:

If you're moving a Main redirect for a work to a redirect in the proper namespace for the work, {{cutlist}} the Main redirect once all its wicks have been handled.


Once the wicks have been cleaned out, the related to page should look roughly like this[[note]]the first wik is one of those bugs I mentioned, the second is a page that lists it in large numbers and will be worked on later[[/note]]:

If what you want to move is a trope, you won't be able to move it yourself. You need to inform a [[Administrivia/KnowTheStaff moderator]] to move it for you. Use the procedure indicated in the "Moving discussion, reviews and relationships" folder, except that you ask for a page move. Don't forget to tell where to move which page to.


If you are doing a rename, don't forget to post links to the TropeRepairShop discussion and a YKTTW for the page you are moving before hollering, if there are any of these.

First, if you're moving a thread in conjunction with a Trope Repair Shop thread, holler from that thread. If you're moving a page to its proper NameSpace, use the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13089408750A90860100&page=1 Namespace Migration Thread]] and pick a post, it doesn't matter which. For this example, we're using generic entries, and are working from the Namespace Migration Thread. Once there, click the [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/smiles/error.png holler button]]:

To open the new, unmade, page either modify the url (this will be shown later) or create a link in the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/conversations.php?topic=00000000000000000000001j Sandbox]] that you can click. In this case, the link would be [=VideoGame.{{Mabinogi}}=] which will give us VideoGame.{{Mabinogi}} (a / can be used instead of a period if you wish to hide the NameSpace).

In much the same way as moving a page to a Namespace, you will be copying and pasting the contents over. However, in the case of our example, there are two works with the same name, leading to shared subpages. You can either hard split them, or soft split them. We are going to soft split these pages. Now, one of them does not have a characters sheet yet, but we're setting one up preemptively to keep the tropes separate and make it all nice and pretty. See Administrivia/HowToSplitAPage for other options.

Now, replace the entire link with the appropriate one. Ensure that the work title is italicized and the Namespace is hidden[[note]]do this by using a / instead of a . between the namespace and title[[/note]]. Ensure that any single word pages have curly brackets around the name so that they are linked properly.
