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.

Well, I temporarily edited the page to make it not a redirect to help, since it isn't locked, and here's what I found:

  • Standard Display: If You Know What I Mean
  • Existing Custom Display: Lampshaded Double Entendre
  • Pending Approval: Lampshaded Double Entendre

Is it possible to clear a custom Wiki Word? If so, how? I know there was a problem a few months back when Western Animation was accidentally displayed as "Didn't Think This Through".

You'll have to submit a new custom title request to replace it.

[up] Yep. I recall the same happening to the You Fail X Forevers, which have also been cleaned up.

Misspelled trope names dealt with... for now. Moving back to the Understatement project soon?

Could we add a link to Gorn: Visceral Reality on the Gorn page? The game is best known only as “Gorn,” and I was surprised to not find a link to it on that page.

If you're looking for the aptly-named video game, see Gorn: Visceral Reality.

Bishonen/ should be removed from Namespace since Bishonen.Anime And Manga was merged back into Bishōnen a long time ago.

I haven't been that entertained since the stock market crash of 1929!

Please add this to The Bible:

  • Shared Dream: In Matthew 2:1-12, the Magi (or "wise men") are three distinguished men who have travelled from afar to visit the infant Jesus. Before they reach Bethlehem, they visit King Herod, who asks them to tell him the baby's whereabouts. However, after paying tribute to the infant Jesus, all three Magi are warned in a dream that Herod intends to find and kill the baby, so they return to their homes via a different route, telling Herod nothing.

For Star Trek, Comic Books:

This goes between Enab and Verad:

  • Voyager (Marvel Comics Series): Maje Jal Valek, from the Homeostasis arc (February and March 1997), is the leader of the Kazon sect Oglamar. Valek is a cruel leader, often assaulting his own men for no reason. Valek steals a powerful bioweapon and launches it at a peaceful planet called Praja, completely destroying the planet's ecosystem. This results in most plants on the planet dying, animals starving death and the local population forced to live in caves to escape the bioweapon, though they will die as well in short order. Valek has done this so he can strip mine the planet and take its resources for himself. When Voyager arrives and tries to restore the planet's ecosystem, Valek tries to destroy Voyager, so that he prove himself superior to the other Kazon sects.

Zerg Rush needs an edit to re-index the recreated ZergRush.Webcomics page, which was deleted and recreated due to a miscapitalized namespace.

Can you add this to the Square Peg, Round Trope page? (Coming from somebody who admittedly misused this trope a few times...)

  • Informed Species is supposed to be about fictional animals who barely resemble the species they're supposed to be, to the point where a regular watcher would have a hard time guessing what animal they are, often even mistaking them for something else. However, it decayed into a list of animals that don't look 100% like the real species, even if they're still identifiable as such.

Inspired by this thread: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=15772418120A75734400&page=1#8
