New Work Page Workshop Thread

Go To

Please go through these pages first before posting here:


Now that you've read all that, welcome! Making pages for your favorite works and creators is fun, but we get that there's a learning curve, especially for new tropers. This thread is intended to help people new to work-page making, and can cover anything and everything you aren't sure about after reading the relevant Administrivias: whether or not an example passes wiki standards, if the formatting and layout of your page is all right, if the summary is comprehensible, or if the page has enough meat to stand by itself. Or simply if you need a second pair of eyes to take a look at your work.

Things that this thread is not:

  • A place to request work pages to be made - This Is a Wiki; if you are familiar with the work, then you are the best person to make the page. This thread is intended to be a peer review of work pages that are in progress or newly finished. If you feel like a work deserves a page but can't go about making it yourself for whatever reason, please list it in List of Shows That Need Summary.
  • For help with trope-making: see the Trope Idea Sounding Board (for incipient ideas) and the TLP workstation thread (for existing drafts) for help on that.
  • For image selection: you can generally go and put up an image of the work by yourself (go through How to Pick a Good Image first, though), but if you have two or more suggestions, pop by Image Pickin' instead.

Now - post your babies (sandboxes, new pages, TLP drafts, etc).! We are here to help. :-)

Addressed Clothing is a one-sentence stub with no tropes whatsoever, barely even a description. Can it be redeemed, or is it straight to cut list?

I want to create a work page for a docuseries I'm watching right now, but IDK how to trope the people in it without troping real life.

[up]We consider the versions of people shown in documentaries/reality shows to be distinct from the real life person. This is because there is a deliberate decision by the editors as to what content to show and what narrative to create.

Can we get some help with Avalon Code: A Guide to Wasting Awesome Ideas? The page creator, ~subtleinsanity, put all their work into the description and left it with just two tropes.

I would like for their to be a trope page for Dress Up! Time Princess. Itís a growing popular app in the vein of Love Nikki(Dress up game with story telling) I would make a page but my grammar sucks. If any wants to make it, go ahead.

[up] What if a work was never officially published, but exists in a sort of Keep Circulating the Tapes limbo where people can at least see a good chunk of it online?

Because I just wrote a draft at Sandbox.The Intertidal Zone and I'm not sure about whether it deserves its own page.

Edit: Just created ComicBook.The Intertidal Zone.

I would say that if it exists on the internet and people can look at it, it counts as "officially published" for our purposes.

Levelhead just got created, and it needs a bit of work with crosswicking and example context. I haven't played it yet myself, though.

FanFic.Logic And Trickster has zero tropes listed, and has been this way for over a week. Its only substantial contributor is ~Love Luigi 4 Ever 915.

It also has a Fan Works subpage which is not being used correctly — the FanWorks/ namespace is for works with a wiki page, which none of the listed works are.

In their current state, they're both cutworthy, but I'm gonna give the creator (and/or anyone else interested) a day or so to try fixing that before I put them on the list.

In other news, I want to make a page for Varli Singh, who has a bunch of character-based videos on TikTok and a short-film. I'm just not sure if it'd be in Web Video under "Varlicious", or under Creator as Varli Singh.

Creator/ may be more apt as she has creative works outside of Web Video? Just my two cents though.

I'm just a bit nervous because I've never made a Creator/ page before. [lol] Plus I only know her Web Video stuff and nothing about the other projects... mostly because Danny Gonzalez discussed her work before.

Hey all, I just made a page for the album Soak. It's the first time I've launched a page, so does anyone have any tips? Also, I can't seem to add an image of the album cover to the page, even though I tried multiple times. Anyone know how to fix that?

For the image, use the "Image Upload" tool on the edit screen. Copy and paste the URL it gives you.

Otherwise, it's not a bad start. I do see some Zero-Context Examples though.

Good start — just some minor formatting fixes (italicize titles, "" episodes and song titles). I went and commented out the Zero-Context Example writeups that I found.
