Links to works that don't yet have pages will thus show up as red. However, they'll automatically shift to blue when the page is created, so always link to works even if they don't have a page yet, unless the work would violate Administrivia/TheContentPolicy--it makes it easier for when someone eventually [[Administrivia/WorkPagesAreAFreeLaunch writes it up]]. We do make an exception for long titles over the 64-character limit mentioned on Administrivia/HowToCreateAWorkPage -- red links that are too long come with some technical problems, so they should either be linked with an official shorter title or not linked at all.

When a [[Administrivia/{{wick}} wikilink]] is made to a page that doesn't exist yet, the link text appears in red[[note]]to be more precise, it's the HTML color #c60000[[/note]], as opposed to the [[Administrivia/TVTropesGlossary blue]] used for normal wikilinks. ItLooksLikeThis.

A misspelled or otherwise botched link will be red too, even if the page it was intended to go to does exist. These might be Administrivia/FrequentRedlinks, and should be fixed on sight.

Pages destined to forever be redlinks are listed on Administrivia/PermanentRedLinkClub.

%%Sometimes a link is blue when the specific page referenced does not exist. This is because the same page title exists in a different Administrivia/{{namespace}}. Clicking on such a link will take you to an automatically generated disambiguation page. Since the link is therefore technically valid, it won't be red. - no longer true after a site update, links to non-existent pages now show up as red even there are pages in the same namespace

Sometimes, Tropers will make redlinks without even intending to link! This is because the markup assumes every use of [=CamelCase=] is supposed to be a link. This can be a pain when trying to talk about, say, the SpeedChat function in an online game. In order to fix links like that, put [=[=this=]=] markup around the word, so SpeedChat becomes [=SpeedChat=].
