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. :-)

Literature.The House Of Asterion: It doesn't seem like there are any issues.

Sandbox.The Whiskey Vault: "Daniel (left) and Rex" seems like an awkward caption format, it usually seems like "(right)" is also there, unless I'm missing something. It could also be mentioned what year they started doing this, so the page could be added on an index like Web Originals of the 2010s. Finally, the page quote suggests there could be an entry for Mad Libs Catch Phrase.

So I've been trying to put together a page for the film Save Yourselves! in my sandbox, with most of the page's content having been added just last night (I got an unexpected motivation boost). It's my first attempt at creating a work page, so any feedback is appreciated.

Hello? I recently created a page for an obscure PS1 game called Rascal. I was wondering if anyone could help out on it? Most information comes from the game's manual I might add. And maybe looking at YT vids of the game might help. On its character page, I'm currently adding some character backstories from the manual, as well.

[up][up]Looks largely fine. You can beef up the description by noting who stars in it and how/where it was released.

[up]Some issues I noticed:

  • You have quite a lot of Zero-Context Example entries. For example "Kid Hero: Rascal himself". That does not tell me anything: specifically, how is Rascal a kid? And how is he the hero?
  • You've already launched the page, so you need to index and crosswick it.
  • You gotta remove the "this page is Under Construction" notices. All site pages are under construction.

I've been wanting to make a page for Malinda Kathleen Reese to discuss her non-Twisted Translations content. However, I'm not sure if it'd be under Music/ or Creator/, and if I should call it "Malinda" (her channel name) or use her full name.

Just made a page for Deeplight. Since I don't create pages very often, it seemed like a good idea to post here. Hopefully, I haven't messed anything up.

[up] There's a few formatting issues. For example, when adding a trope that uses a custom title with lowercase letters, make sure to capitalize every word, rather than just the ones that visually appear that way. For example, Half the Man He Used to Be should be written as this:

  • HalfTheManHeUsedToBe

Not this:

  • HalftheManHeUsedtoBe

You said a few formatting issues. Was that referring to the multiple miscapitalised tropes, or are there other screw ups that need sorting out?

[up] There’s not much else, although I did notice that you tried to wick a plural version of Eldritch Abomination, even though no such redirect exists. You can, however, alter a trope name by putting it in curly brackets and adding more text after the second pair of brackets. For example, this:

  • {{Eldritch Abomination}}s

Will appear as this:

Furthermore, you can use vertical bars for certain plural forms of words. For example, this:

  • {{Self Fulfilling Prophec|y}}ies

Will appear as this:

For anyone into the fake anti-piracy scene, Sandbox.Piracy Is No Party probably technically meets the bare minimum requirements for a works page, but tbh we feel like it needs more than what it's got so far to be "really" "good enough"

Hello! I just created a page for Fairy Tales of Mourania. I added 8 tropes and any help with issues you noticed, new additions or any advice from anybody would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I think it looks good so far although Big Fancy House could use a sentence or two describing what the house looks like if that makes sense.

Oh and the page needs an index. Maybe Web Serial Novel? Also, you should crosswick the tropes on the page by adding them to trope example lists

I made a new series on my Tumblr blog, and also made a tropes page for it. It desperately Needs Wiki Magic Love, and there's a link to my Tumblr blog on the tropes page. I just posted a new batch of Gordonisms, and I'm too lazy to trope all of them, so I might need help.

[up] There’s currently way too quote examples. While those can work sometimes, you shouldn’t do that for nearly every example, especially since some of them don’t provide enough context on their own.

Also, I noticed a “see above” example. Don’t write examples that tell you to look at another example (in this case, it doesn’t even specify where to look); examples should always be entirely self-contained.

[up] But it's based off of stuff like Skippy's List, and that series has tons of quote examples on its trope page. For the "see above" example, I was trying to avoid Department of Redundancy Department, because the example that was above it (Electric Instant Gratification), had the quote I was looking for, and quoting it twice in a row would've lead to, well, Department of Redundancy Department.
