Have a question about how the TVTropes wiki works? No one knows this community better than the people in it, so ask away! Ask the Tropers is the page you come to when you have a question burning in your brain and the support pages didn't help. It's not for everything, though.

Ask the Tropers:
What should one do when one finds a newly launched trope that is already on the wiki? (Specifically, it looks like they were trying to launch something called the You Shall Not Pass Daisy Chain", but its the "I Got This" trope which is already on the page.
What is the procedure in these cases?
The user Gauchito1986 (an already banned user) is vandalizing the Copa Libertadores article. He was already banned. (His past user was Jamen Somasu)
No Title Western Animation
JustBugsMe.FanboyAndChumChum was blanked by Bgal, leaving the comment "Please only FRIDGE LOGIC examples, not things of the show that bug ya. Kaythx." He/she was quite right that the stuff there (natter and complaining) was not what JBM was for, but the page should have been deleted instead *
its all broken and shit
No Title Literature
Could we possibly add the Chaos Walking series to Literature?Edited by kitsunegari101
New troper mwalk has done nothing but go to the 2012 page to complain about a character he doesn't like, to the point of making up a trope name, and blanking the page after I deleted his entries.
Edit: Aaaaand now he's getting into personal attacks. Can someone ban the jackass already?Edited by MrDeath
I'm having trouble getting a "Set Page Type" to take on JustBugsMe.Tropes. I have been trying to set it as an Index, however after I submit it goes right back to being a sub-page.
This article was created today in an effort to split JustBugsMe.Home Page, and every other page that I split has accepted the Index page type without problems.Edited by Meeble
Discussion pages seem to be missing and/or blanked. The discussions for WMG.Real Life, WMG.One Piece, and JustBugsMe.Home Page (all of which I've posted to within the last few days) are not showing.
What's the official policy for "This Troper" entries on YMMV tabs?
Why is This Troper a blue link?
Say a page for a work has multiple titles that lead to it. How does one change one of those titles to its own page? For example, Super Paper Mario redirects to the Paper Mario page. How would I make a Super Paper Mario page? Does it require moderator assistance?
how do i launch a page?
