Is there like a list of all media on Tv Tropes, similar to the trope list they have?
No, there\'s no list of all pages in the work namespace, since there\'s over 70000 of them. I\'d estimate that\'d weigh 7 to 8 MB, since our complete trope list (located at https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pagelist_having_pagetype_in_namespace.php?n=Main&t=trope ) has 28000 pages and weighs over 3 MB. So a list like that would just be too big, and since work pages are made faster than trope pages, it would keep getting worse.
Wait, what role do megabytes play in this? Just curious.
Simply put, it would be too heavy to load. Even my pretty strong 2017 laptop struggles a bit with pages that are 5+ MB (let alone my 2017 mobile phone), so I really don\'t think we need a page that\'s massive and grows to be even bigger.
Oh... why not split the media like Aa-Ar and Bi-Bu and stuff like that?
That\'s not likely to happen since the reason why have a list of all tropes is because all pages with the trope page type are in the same namespace. All pages in the work page type are in different namespaces. We have lists of all pages in a namespace (paginated due to size) and lists of all pages in namespace and page type (not paginated yet), but no lists all pages in a page type. However, if you want a list of all pages in the work page type in one namespace, go to https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pagelist_having_pagetype_in_namespace.php?n=VideoGame&t=work and you get a list of all work pages in the video game namespace. Change VideoGame to something else like Film or Anime to get a different list of works in a namespace. Hope this helps.
It does, thanks!
Shouldn't unproduced scripts count as print media?
Not really. They might literally be printed out, but they're not print media in the sense that they're made with a printing press
