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. Pages cut a while ago were automatically locked. Before asking for an unlock, make sure that the article you want to create is in the proper Namespace, has gone through YKTTW if it's a trope, and otherwise fulfills our guidelines for Creating New Pages.
  4. 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.
  5. We do not edit archived articles, even to correct links.
  6. Main redirects are no longer being created for namespaced work pages. Don't ask for one.
  7. 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.
  8. Work pages made in the wrong namespace, 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.

ComicBook.Asterix needs a revert/lock (it's been hit by you-know-who).

I know, right? And what's worse is it's actually a legitimate edit for once instead of breaking indentation or edit warring over namespaces like usual, but it'll get nuked on principle just because it was put there by a ban evader. sad

With the pages creators permission, I've re-namespaced Fanfic.Recall The Time Of No Return to Webcomic.Recall The Time Of No Return provided I fix the links. Can someone please change the link in Monster.Fan Works?

Done. Quite apart from the fact that page locks don't help against Nate, the Asterix edit does not look like a Nate edit to me.

Yeah...now that I think about it, it's too sane to be him. The "bunch of random letters new account" thing did look suspicious though.

Hmm, the second part of 17748 at Resident Evil does need to be done: for Saddler, please change Los Illuminado to Los Illuminados.

I think WebVideo.You Can Play This is going to need a lock. The description went way too into the creator's posthumous scandal, in my opinion. I've edited to be more about how the scandal affected the work but I cannot imagine people not readding more details.

[up] Agreed. Locking that article and all subpages. Apparently people just cannot figure out the concept of restraint, so we'll take away their toys instead.

Add [up][up] to Locked Pages: WebVideo.You Can Play This and subpages: Attracted drama and Speak Ill of the Dead garbage. Locked to observe the Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement.

On Wick Namespace Migration, can you add the following to the non-complex folder?

IMDb - Website/

Valentine's Day - Film/ (There is currently no page for the actual holiday)

Besides this, a few more things:

Slight change for the Syndicate tree at Video Games L to Z:

  • Syndicate (2012):
    • Jack Denham, the CEO of EuroCorp, gained immense power with his DART chips—which work like computers inserted into the brain—and will do anything to maintain his dominance. Forcefully drafting agents by finding babies with good combat genes and killing their parents, Jack uses his agents to terminate any opposition to EuroCorp, uncaring if civilians get involved. When a section of Manhattan rioted due to food shortages, Jack responded by sealing off the poverty-stricken area and leaving them to starve.
    • Agent Jules Merit is Jack's head enforcer and a callous killer. Encouraging his protégé, Miles Kilo, to not worry about killing civilians, Merit goes on to shoot an unarmed man just moments into their first mission. While the duo escapes by train, Merit makes a point of shooting each and every passenger he comes across in a car, before tricking the conductor into opening the locomotive room and killing him too. When a EuroCorp scientist, Lily Drawl, turns traitor out of disgust with the company's practices, Merit happily tortures her to mentally break her so her DART chip can be extracted.

At Anime and Manga A to J, please get rid of the note for Freed.

At Video Games A to K, for Hanne, please get rid of the parenthetical.

And now there's no wicks to Main.Valentines Day. It likely should be turned into a disambig into Valentine's Day Episodes, the Film, and a Useful Notes.

Given that there's no existent Useful Notes... Its creation could be done either in TLP, my Redirects to Disambigs Thread, Sandboxed, or something.

Help with possible disambig and redirect issues!

Go ahead and do a write-up for a disambig of the existing work and trope. A UN page doesn't have to go through TLP.

At Video Games L to Z, for Lair, please wrap The Dragon around "right-hand-man, Captain Loden".

Suggesting that Writer Bashing be swapped with Creator Bashing, because we use the term Creator more than Writer.

Approved or declined, there are locked pages that will need repair.

Can this be added to Television Is Trying to Kill Us:

  • Abandoned Pet in a Box: Abandoning pets in a box is considered neglectful in real life and is sometimes illegal. Often times, the puppy or kitten also won't end up taken or won't get taken quickly enough. They're vulnerable to weather, predators, or just walking out of the box and getting hurt or lost. There's also the chance they'll be adopted by someone who picked them up on a whim and isn't ready for (or can't handle) a pet.
