Locked Pages: Lock, UnLock and Edit requests

Go To

Important Note: The page locking bug introduced in the 1.8 update has been mostly fixed, however, there are still some recurrences we are working on debugging.

You can get around a spurious page lock by going to https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/wysiwyg_source_editor.php?groupname=Namespace&title=Title. If the page is still locked, it's likely checked out by another troper.


This thread is for requesting edits or unlocks to Locked Pages or for requesting locks. It can also be used for technical requests to moderators such as creating new pages in the Main/ and other restricted namespaces without going through YKTTW.

Please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  1. Check Locked Pages and Permanent Red Link Club first. They can provide guidance on what are good and bad requests.
  2. Include working links in your request to the page(s) in question.
  3. If asking for edits, state your changes exactly as they should appear on the page, including proper Example Indentation, namespacing, and pothole and quote formatting. And make sure that what you want to add is actually a valid example.
  4. We do not edit archived articles, even to correct links.
  5. If you need to have the capitalization of a page title or namespace of a work fixed, ask here.
  6. Some locked pages have ongoing cleanup threads, like Complete Monster (Thread), Five-Man Band (Thread), and Magnificent Bastard (Thread). Other than purely technical requests, edits to these pages ought to be discussed in these threads first.
  7. Also, we do not do direct edits (other than changing wicks) to Magnificent Bastard or Complete Monster example lists. Rather, you need to do the edit to a sandbox page that follows the format Sandbox.Magnificent Bastard<Name of the example subpage> and Sandbox.Monster<Name of the example subpage> (e.g for Monster.Disney it's Sandbox.Monster Disney) and ask for it to be swapped in on Friday for Magnificent Bastard and on Tuesday for Complete Monster.
  8. Inappropriate pages that keep being recreated, pages banned under The Content Policy and the 5P Circuit and subpages that are disallowed (like Headscratchers pages for tropes) are valid reasons for requesting page locks.

NOTE: Edited with OP's permission.

Main.Random Number Generator is a redirect to Main.Random Number God, but it shouldn't go there, that's a trope involving a game mechanic described by the article UsefulNotes.Random Number Generator. I think the redirect should either point at the Useful Notes page, or be cut.

^^Seems like you may want a disambig there. I agree a redirect is not ideal.

Please add this entry to The Bible.

  • Death of a Child:
    • The Bible features, among other acts of evil, the killings of firstborn children ordered by Pharaoh and King Herod in order to try to prevent both Moses and Jesus from growing up to cause trouble, and God himself killing all of the Egyptians' firstborn children, and the firstborn calves as well.
    • When the words Molech/Baal-Hammon, Astarte/Astarthe/Astaroth/Ashtoreth, the Valley of Ben-Hinnom/Gehenna, the Ammonites/Amorites, the Canaanites, etc. are mentioned, these are specifically referencing the sacrifices of children, born and unborn, to the gods of some of the cultures of the time. Sometimes the Jewish people (such as Kings Solomon, Achaz, and Manasses) messed up and took on this practice as well, despite God calling such a practice an abomination, and demanding the death of those who did such things. Those people ended up in a lot of trouble. It's the whole reason that Gehenna came to be the Jewish word for Tartarus/Hell (which is different from Sheol/Hades/Purgatory).
    • In 2 Maccabees, when the Jewish people rebelled against the corrupt high priest Jason, who had been appointed by King Antiochus IV, and ran him out of town, the king left Egypt for Jerusalem. Once in Jerusalem, he massacred many, young and old, women and children, virgins and infants. In 1 and 2 Maccabees (2 Maccabees is not a "sequel', it's another viewpoint of what happened in the the first book), King Antiochus IV then decreed that everyone take up the customs of everyone else, except the Jewish customs. He outlawed all Jewish customs, including circumcision. The children who were circumcised were killed, as were their mothers and whoever performed the circumcision.

Hmm...good to know.
BTW, for the Punisher film one, there's an extra comma near the end.
Also, at Comic Books, for Four Horsemen..., please replace the Big Bad pothole with The Heavy.

A leaked copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is making it's way across the internet. I request locking it and it's subpages, until the official March 3rd release date.

Does Russia Iran Disco Suck belong in the Permanent Red Link Club? The cut reason says that it is too problematic, and the page already has a lock.
