* A common error is to create a new article but not add examples, counting on WikiMagic to fill them in later. But if you don't add examples and [[Administrivia/{{Crosswicking}} cross-reference]] them, how will anyone find your new article? We call these stubs and they frequently get deleted.

Added DiffLines:

* Plagiarism (copying text from other people without giving them credit) is not okay. Copying images is allowed with certain restrictions. See Administrivia/AboutImagesAndCopyright for details.


* ''Check your work''. Proofread it for grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Is it formatted like other similar pages on the wiki? Is it indexed? Does it contain accidental redlinks? The Preview function can be useful for this so you don't look like a SerialTweaker.

A: Yes, but you don't own the wiki article and this isn't a place to advertise. See Administrivia/TheFicMayBeYoursButTheTropePageIsOurs and Administrivia/AutoEroticTroping.

Added DiffLines:

'''Q: Can I make a new media article?'''\\
A: Absolutely. See Administrivia/HowToCreateAWorksPage. TLDR: Put it in the proper Administrivia/{{Namespace}}, give it a valid title, add a description, and add enough valid examples.
