Outdated Pages

Go To

This is a thread to discuss those Administrivia pages in need of a little updating- you know the ones. The ones that still cite rules we've long since changed, or the ones that don't properly cite our current standards. Some of them are even scattered in Main/!

So, this is the place to take those pages and fix them up with the help of the community.

For a list of current projects, see Outdated Pages.

the Word Cruft and Square Peg, Round Trope issues can be solved by just copying the pages over and cutlisting the ones in Main/. permission to do so?

Yep. And then we'll be locking the Administrivia versions.

Sorry, I wasn't thinking in my earlier post.

We experimented with cutting Main redirects to Administrivia pages, and found that there were some places on the website where the Main version was hardcoded, and therefore cutting them broke that part. For that reason we tend to decline redirects that we feel may fall into the same bucket. That'd be the case with Word Cruft and Square Peg, Round Trope.

the pages will also need to be added to the Administrivia index page, which is locked.

Thanks. Although just asking, why is Square Peg, Round Trope locked?

Administrivia pages are locked by default to prevent rogue editors from changing policies. you can request edits in the locked page edit request thread in FAQ.

What about Main.Text Formatting Rules to Administrivia.Text Formatting Rules, since the former not existing breaks the Extended Markup Help link found at the bottom of the forum post screen?

[up]Example A of what I was talking about up-thread. I restored the Main page, because it wouldn't be a priority to fix for the admins.

Willbyr took a look over and made the corrections he wanted to make. If there's no other feedback over the weekend, I'll swap it out.

[up] For your information, Redirects Are Free... although there are guidelines on that page you should read, but other than that I think you can go ahead.

[up] - Yeah, but it wasn't made while others were, so that made me wary.

By the way, can somebody please help me with the Wick Namespace Migration of Square Peg, Round Trope? There are a lot that are within pages that are too long for me to find without losing focus, and I feel like if it's wicked within an example, I should delete it per Repair, Don't Respond.

Sorry, I browse and edit TV Tropes on phone. And the main redirect is still in 31 articles, not counting archives.

Apologies if I'm interrupting, but we may want to mention the problem with "apophenia" (seeing meaning/correlation in things when there are none) in the Trope page, as I think it'd be relevant. It'd probably fit in How To Make A Cool TLP, as well.

At the very least, it'd be relevant on the PSOC article.
