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.

In JustForFun.Television Is Trying To Kill Us, please add this between Magic Plastic Surgery and Malicious Slander:

  • Making Love in All the Wrong Places: Public sex is not a good idea. Other than being arrested for public indecency, there are other dangers, such as bathroom germs, attacks from wild animals, and injury.

The trope's page itself comes with a Cracked link about why you shouldn't do it. Hence, it may have a place in that index.

Limpin' with the bizkit.

From YMMV.Sonic The Hedgehog 2020

  • Memetic Loser: Sonic's movie design became an overnight internet punching bag on par with Bubsy due to his infamously disturbing redesign that all three of his creators, Sega themselves and even the film's own director have disavowed, as well as the trailer showing him being unable to dodge a mere tranquilizer dart, when seconds later, he is seen pulling Bullet Time on a swarm of missiles. The Fridge Horror that assumes his accidental power surge potentially endangered hundreds of infants' lives isn't helping his case.

Can someone please remove the italics from the Bubsy part? I believe the entry is referring to the character, not the work itself.

Characters.Go Toubun No Hanayome is a redirect to Characters.The Quintessential Quintuplets, but it's making ghost wicks. Can it be cut and recreated with the text [[redirect:Characters/TheQuintessentialQuintuplets]], so that can be fixed?

[up] Its only wick is from Manga.Go Toubun No Hanayome, which itself is a ghost wick.

I'd leave Characters/ cut, but recreate Manga/, as foreign titles are more acceptable in work namespaces than in subpage namespaces.

The page quote at Comic Books is wonky. The bit at the end is two forward slashes and three apostrophes instead of a quote mark and two apostrophes. Please fix that.

At Masters of the Universe, please add this before 1982!Skeletor:

The New Adventures of He-Man Mattel mini-comics

  • Skeletor is once again presented here as the most diabolical enemy of He-Man. A powerful warlock, Skeletor tries to steal the powers of Eternia by tricking travelers from the future into absorbing said powers in their space ship, which Skeletor plans to use to turn everyone into his slaves. Failing at that and escaping into the future, Skeletor forces Flogg and his Mutant Army into serving him, repeatedly trying to destroy He-Man and his allies. Taking control of the crystal which controlled the atmosphere of the planet Primus, Skeletor thwarts He-Man's attempts at to get it back, despite knowing that without the crystal the entire planet will be destroyed.

Can we get a page restore on the Borderlands Vault Hunters pages? A well-meaning troper recently consolidated all of the character pages, thinking it would be less hassle to navigate, but the page is too big and needs to be hard split anyway.

We used to have the characters split by the game they're playable in, and I was planning on adding an organized header at the top of each page to help navigate (much like the Overwatch pages).

If it's easier to just do a restore instead of manually redirecting everything again, that'd be great!

Aug 23rd 2019 at 2:49:14 PM

[up][up][up][up] It is? It's a wick on SugarWiki.Heartwarming Moments, and I suspected there are more. I can leave it alone if removing ghost wicks is more trouble than it's worth.

The Trivia.Four Kids Entertainment entry should be moved from the Locked Pages list to the Permanent Red Link Club list since it's a cut-and-locked page that should never get unlocked due to the "no sub-pages for Creators" rule.

At Music, the Slayer entry has an extra asterisk.

Also, at Web Original, the nosleep folder is gone, but it's still in the subheader. It should be:

AlternateHistory.com stories; Critical Role; The Heaven Cycle

EDIT: At Literature R to Z, please italicize Tess Winnett

~OnGreenDolphinStreet, there are lots of pages that shouldn't be made again, but we do not put them all on the PRLC. Moreover, please note that there are circumstances on which Creator's Trivia subpages are acceptable. Per Creator Page Guidelines:

However, if a Creator article is doubling as a work article, Trivia subpages may contain trivia for their works.

Done except for the image thing.

For some reason, the redirect page IfYouKnowWhatIMean (with braces) or Lampshaded Double Entendre (without braces), which is suffering its own issues as reported here, is not locked.

Also, please replace the wick on Everything's Worse with Snowclones to X, Just...X with Zero-Context Examples.
