  • I want to post my own works/pet project/ own fanon as an trope page with tropes featured. Where am I allowed to do that here if I can. Blogs?

      Loading editor
  • I tried to post this at https://allthetropes.org/wiki/User_talk:GethN7 but got the following error:
    [e4b5f820c17dd5d094eab4c7] Caught exception of type Flow\Exception\NoParserException
    so I'm posting it here instead. Any idea what might cause that?

    This talk page has an interesting structure I haven't seen before... followed the link to https://allthetropes.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page from allthetropes.fandom and noticed that this redirects to a URL without miraheze.org in it. Do you know what kind of steps would need to be done to get that feature?

    I tried to get some semblance of AnimeBaths up but it was just the source code, Miraheze apparently doesn't have the space to import the old images yet. Probably much easier with a less image-focused wiki like this one.

    It seems that while the old "tropes.wikia" URL still works to redirect to allthetropes.fandom that "tropes.fandom" doesn't... hopefully that might be fixed soon. Any idea who is using "tropes.org" right now? I tried it and it wouldn't load anything but there was some kind of icon...

    I'd like to contribute tropes primarily to one location, and had shifted from TVtropes to allthetropes due to the preferable editing structure, but now I'm wondering if it might be better to just try and remember this miraheze site instead.

    Do you know if there are any pages on either wiki explaining the differences in policy between the two projects, like for example which project is more inclusive of tropes? I'm guessing probably Miraheze since I think I recall Uncyclopedia also planning to move here, and also because Fandom rejected AnimeBaths but Miraheze has so far accepted it.

    I'm hoping to eventually focus on "body language tropes" and coming up with names for them and documenting characters exhibiting subtle visual postures across various series. Do you know a way to find out others interested in that?

    It's tricky because I wouldn't want to go too broad (for example: someone shaking their head no, someone nodding their head yes) because some things would be so common that a page could get ridiculously long, and things like that are just so omnipresent that documenting almost seems pointless...

    I was thinking something like Armholding (someone reaching to grasp their opposite upper arm) which is a defensive posture associated with feeling shame, for example. That's something somewhat common but rare enough that I think it might be interesting to document. Think possibly I brought it up before. For example, Stacie Roberts does it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vB4-qn0y2Qk

    A couple others (which we see Barbie do in the above clip) might be called Scooching (when a personal sitting down wiggles so as to move laterally and make a spot for another person) and Spot-Patting (when one lightly slaps a place/spot/location, indicating a desire for another to come occupy that space).

    In the latter case, I might be inclined to assume that everyone knows the meaning of such patting, but that might be culturally biased. It's possible that perhaps other cultures don't do that sort of motion, or that aliens studying humanity might be confused by it. Probably not though, it seems common-sense enough that even dogs seem to learn the meaning of the action. Still, probably rare enough that documenting instances of it wouldn't be excessive?

    • You ran into a rare caching bug when making a post, Miraheze uses Flow, the Wikimedia specific improvement on the Wikia threading, but it can foul up with that error you saw at rare intervals. but it will clear up.

      As for ATT, I manage both the Miraheze and Wikia branches, they are two prongs of the same project, but our Wikia one is a bit more informal since I'm the main boss of it, and Miraheze is managed by several others besides me. Both should have no restrictions on acceptable tropes, but if Wikia says no to something for whatever reason, it's off the table here.

      I don't see any reason those tropes should be objectionable on either fork so long as you stick primarily to text based examples and use SFW imagery to display them if you must add a picture.

      As for the commonality of tropes, there is always the People Sit on Chairs issue of things being so common it's absurd to try troping it, but if you can try to avoid that, I see no objections to hosting said tropes on either branch of our ATT project.

      Mireheze allows for custom URLs for their wiki projects, consult them for more information, and as for image dumping, it would be best not to core dump tons of stuff on them, they aren't as large as Wikia for a reason and it would be better to upload images individually if possible and eventually rebuild that way if you have literal terabytes of images you need to import.

        Loading editor
    • I could see some chair-sitting tropes, like one for people who sit down violently (plunking?) and another for people who sit down gingerly... another for wiping a seat before sitting there, but yeah, chair-sitting in general is definitely too broad.

      Part of the problem with images is that I don't really know how to automatically sort out the good from the bad. The best I can think would be a "trusted users" thing and if there was some way to just replace the images they uploaded, so as to avoid the automatic re-upload of the garbage I negligently let build up.

      That said, I'd still probably need to program some way to mine that out of the massive tar.gz archive, so I'll probably put it off until I somehow learn2code or someone who can comes along and does it.

      Possibly something I could request at Phabricator...

  • Hi, GethN7.

    Did this wikia recently attacked by some vandals and/or trolls who gave you a headache? I asked cuz hours before you received this message of mine, Little Witch Academia Wiki was attacked by a sick bastard whose username being Pro-Orangist. Pro-Orangist claimed to be part of Project Sengula whose mission is to vandal Wikia (now known as FANDOM) sites with extreme prejudice like genocidal terrorists. He and his fellow trolls also attacked other fandom site such as Toy Story wiki. For more info about Pro-Orangist and his associates, see here:

    The threat has been contained thanks to my quick action in warning admins at other sites as well as reported the attack to VSTF, but I just recalled on this wikia and worried that it was attacked as well.

    Please reply soon!

  • I've changed my mind - I don't want to dump the Complete Monster pages onto a new Wiki. I'd rather dump the entirety of All The Tropes onto a new Wiki.

    Yeah, it's come to that. ATT.org is like TV Tropes was back in the day - people didn't like how TV Tropes did things, so somone (you?) went and made The Trope Mirror Wiki/All The Tropes out of archived data from TV Tropes. And now that I don't like how ATT.org is doing things, I wish to set up my own Tropes Wiki where things can be done logically rather than ruled by a majority swayed by emotions, impulses, and personal petty grudges.

    Could you please help me with this? I hope we can be on the same page here...

    • Left the tools for you on that post on ATT Miraheze, you are still welcome to them, but consider yourself permanently exiled from that community now.

      Wish it didn;t have to come to this, but you chose to spit in the face of your last advocate, and even I had enough.

  • Hello, I am an admin on Quintet Wiki. I was wondering if you would be interested in being affiliated with us. If so, send me a message and I can give you the wiki's wordmark.

      Loading editor
    • Sure. I'd be happy to put up a courtesy link on our site recommending you guys.

      Also, checked your wiki, you have nice taste in game developers, Quintet has definitely released some classics I've enjoyed.

      Unfortunately, our Wikia branch has no standard logo so we can return the favor, but you are welcome to make a page for your wiki here and use any of our content on Quintet games we have pages for under CC BY SA rules on your wiki.

      Thanks for reaching out to our community, my prayers are that yours will prosper as well.

  • Almost all of her edits are creating sub-pages for the Sonic Heroes' article but she only writes TBA on them. I expected her to fill them out eventually but she never does(the Quotes page was 100% written by me, she wrote nothing on it despite creating it). She just created an Analysis page and I don't think she will do any.

      Loading editor
    • It's not just Sonic Heroes. I saw her months ago creating a whole bunch of pages with no content, only 'TBA'. One of those was 'Yeah! Shot/Quotes', which I edited to include an actual quote. Which is more than she could bring herself to do.

      Why bother creating a new page if all you're going to do is type three letters? 'TBA' is NOT actual content.

      Anyway, take a look at her 'User contributions' page. You'll find ALL of her contributions are listed as (Created page with "TBA").

    • I checked, and I've given her a long block for spamming gibberish that is not constructive.

  • Just letting you know that I have completed Little Witch Academia/Nightmare Fuel page. Don't worry about being another potential copy-pasting from TV Tropes like second version of Little Witch Academia. I reassured you that everything I wrote in Little Witch Academia/Nightmare Fuel page is 100% original and have made at least dozens of revision so any possible unintended similarities to original article has been thinned out (hopefully) by the time you received this message.

    What do you think?

    • That's fair. you can add tropes we don;t have yet, so long as out page is not a ripoff of TVT once it's made.

      As for names, the first one is reference to a phrase about how shields will protect you. I wouldn't mind your preferred titles being a redirect to those tropes you mentioned, but the names are very well known one at this point and I'd like to keep them for search engine reasons.

  • https://allthetropes.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:295111#3

    This person seems to believe that their edits are absolutely untouchable, no matter how potentially inaccurate they are regarding the tropes themselves. Not sure of how to deal with it since I'm no mod here and it could get potentially messy.

    (Edited because wow, I'm in a bad mood due to this. Sorry)

    • I think they need to learn to have better grammar and manners before they are welcome here.

      They are blocked. Feel free to clean up their mess, let me know if they sockpuppet.

    • That, too. They seemed to be ESL and since I'm ESL as well I thought I'd rather focus on their behavior.

      Thanks, and I'll keep an eye on the page itself just in case.

    • So, I think my wiki needs to be shelved for now until Im fully prepared. Know how I can delete it?

      Also, what other sites would you recommend for an avid tv troper like ourselves? Or do you know how I can see the full list of wikis of all fandoms?

      Thanks again for all of your help.
