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.

Shouldn't Acquired Poison Immunity be added to Television Is Trying to Kill Us, since as the page states, "For some (chiefly organic) poisons, the body produces antibodies to clear them from the system; so, with repeated exposure to small amounts, you can build up a level of circulating antibody that grants immunity to a typical dose. In the past ages, the few metallic poisons known were rare and expensive; therefore most poisons were plant-based alkaloids. However, there are plenty of other poisons (including nearly all heavy metals to which modern civilians and industrial workers are exposed, such as compounds of lead, radium, mercury and cadmium) that don't get cleared from the system and simply build up in your tissues until you reach a lethal dose."

I'm curious - is YMMV/Dragon Ball Super 2018 locked to stem off any potential editing wars concerning the reveal of Broly?

[up] I'd run it by the "Is this an example?" topic first to see what other people think. I'm really not keep on making any edits to FFVII's article, especially if they're "filler" edits like this one.

Please unlock Rule-Abiding Rebel. Also, I believe Dragon Ball Super (2018) should be moved to Dragon Ball Super: Broly.

EDIT: Moved page.

I'm not the only one here about Broly. XD

In all seriousness, considering the info that Broly's getting an overhauled backstory, maybe we could divide his tropes into two or three sections. Shared, Original Movies and 2018. Just an idea for now or later.

EDIT: Oh, the page already did that before this post. Hehehehe...heh. :(

[up][up][up][up][up] I thought that when pages are locked out by another troper, trying to edit them brought up the message "This page is locked out by ______ until ______" (and I have seen this message since the 1.8 overhaul) rather than having the padlock symbol. Also, is Memes.Steven Universe meant to be locked?

I don't know if the page Implausible Deniability is meant to be locked or not (it's not listed on Locked Pages). If it is, then could an administrator fix the word "Western" under the Doctor Who example?

Kind of thinking the edit lock bug is back in some form.

FLCL Progressive & Alternative - main page

FLCL Progressive & Alternative - trivia sub-page

Monster Hunter: World - YMMV sub-page

Kumo Desu Ga, Nani Ka? - main page

All of these have been locked most of the day, and none are especially controversial or heated.
