Just what it says on the tin, folks. If you aren't sure whether a page will meet the criteria for being moved to the shadow site, bring it up here.

Not trying to derail the other thread, I must mention that Turn On Tropes currently includes some pretty innocent stuff, like Tsundere, Brainless Beauty, Of Corsets Sexy.

I'm not sure how wide-ranging their restriction on "crude or indecent language" goes; think we would have to rename, say, Magnificent Bastard to be in the clear?

I really don't think "bastard" is an issue here. That's been off the "can't say this on TV" list for quite some time. The "Fuck" tropes will probably need to be retitled, though.

Most of the "FUCK" ones are redirects anyway.

Currently taking a break from the site. See my user page for more information.

^ I noticed that too.

Fighteer: You're probably right. It would be nice if we could be put in touch with whatever specific human being who looked over the wiki and made the decision to cut our funding, so we knew precisely what brought them to that decision.

Crossposting from the other thread:

Kite and Mezzo Forte could probably be rewritten to remove references to explicit tropes, however since the works themselves do contain explicit scenes, I would understand if they need to be moved as well.

Look, I don't really see how they could sensor stuff just because of the word "breast" or things like that; they're putting ads on Cracked, aren't they? Cracked articles are full of dicks, including the titles of some of the articles, so it's not as if anyone's gonna get sensored for just that.

I'm sure that the stuff that got us in trouble is way more directly related to porn and sex than just mentioning some of the organs involved. I'm pretty sure I've seen the same ads on sites with sex tips and so on.

[up][up] Wrong thread for this conversation.

Also: it is not determined that we'll have to physically move pages offsite. It's possible that we can simply flag NSFG pages so the wiki software can automatically segregate them. The question then becomes one of which pages need to be so-tagged.

We are also going to get a "report this page" feature to allow mods to review suspect articles.

This is probably an extremely stupid question, but what about things listed under Turn On Tropes that are really quite innocent and used in G and PG rated media? I mean, The Woobie is listed on there for Pete's sake. We're looking at the tropes on an individual basis rather than saying "Oh, that's listed under Turn On Tropes, we have to move it", right?

Stupid doomed timeline...

It has to be on an individual basis. Clearly not everything on that index will need to be flagged.

Is there a way to set up a thingy so that you don't have to click through each time, but once terms are agreed to, you get passed straight through? Or at least for members anyway.

I already suggested this in the mod discussion thread (yes, we have one). It's an obvious extension of the registration process.

There's like five discussions going on at once, it's annoying.

This will be a good thing, if it happens.

If google won't allow it someone could write a quick browser mod that skips it for you.

It will be a pain on the works pages or those who like to trope surf.

@Deboss: Agreed.

<Mod Voice> Please keep all discussion of the mechanics of the changes in the other thread. This one is only for discussion of pages affected.
