As the 2020s have started, I think there should be a page for the 2020s. Currently the most recent decade page (as far as I know) is The New Tens, which is no longer the current decade. But I have no idea what the page should be called so that's why I contacted you (the first admin I could find).
Doc, I started my own fork because I liked the idea of open-sourcing troping, and you are basically open-sourcing with your own fork. I'd be a hypocritical douche-bag if I denied you the right to tell people about your fork on mine given how I hated how TV Tropes denied it's competition any recognition for the longest time.
I just hope this pays off and more troping forks prosper, yours included.
I get the sense more users would be willing to listen to you than to me. So far, none of this Wiki's users have been turning up on my Wiki to do any editing, though they have time to make new edits here every few minutes. How many of them actually noticed the messages I left? And for any who did, are they put off of it because it's from me?
I'm this close on giving up on The True Tropes altogether. It shouldn't exist, as it only does exist because I got a perfectly good trope killed on both ATT Wikis just by getting involved with the discussion on what ought to be done with that trope. There's no real coming back from that for me, is there?
But it might just be because the Wiki is sitll fairly new. I wonder if it was this difficult for you to get help back when you started ATT...?

Sorry I haven't been helping out this past month as much as I had in months previous. Other things have been demanding my attention. However, I have made a number of edits, many of which I made at the same time to their counterparts on All The Tropes to try to get pages up to date.
I'll see what I can do to make further contributions here and there.
Hiya GethN7! I'm Alex, a Wiki Manager from the Anime Team assigned to assist All The Tropes Wiki. We want to provide more direct assistance & support to local Admins, so if you ever needed any help with managing the Wiki, doing something technical, or just had a question about how best to do something or how your Wiki is doing in search engines, I or Fandom at large can directly help you out or provide such information to you if you need or want it. We want to empower you to keep doing great things on Fandom!
Occasionally I may stop by to ask how the Wiki is doing, but generally I won't be in the way - just in the wings whenever you need me. You can reach out to me here or on Discord @ Ursuul#0575 if you want to reach out, cheers!
Thanks for getting in touch, the assistance is appreciated, will definitely ask for assistance if I need to.
I have no particular needs at present, but if you notice something that needs your expertise to fix, please feel free to do so at your discretion without needing to inform me prior, I shall trust your competence and judgment in that matter.
I look forward to working with you and thanks again for the heads up.
I've run into this problem, too. I solved it by censoring the N-word when editing the page. Apparently, the n-word was allowed to be posted uncensored when the page was created, but the rules have changed. Apparently Wikia/Fandom does NOT have N-Word Privileges and the spam filter assumes that if you use the word in ANY context, you're a well over the Moral Event Horizon full blown racist. If you edit pages that included the word before the spam filter was programmed to leave it out, then you have to censor the word or just not edit the page at all.
And since I'm on the subject, we probably won't be able to edit the N-Word Privileges page or its Quotes subpage either without running into the filter. Filters care nothing for context. They just forbid use of certain words regardless of how they're used.
I blame the racist trolls for this. They've gotten worse in the past three or four years, and have been attacking people with racial slurs online. So it's not surprising that filters like this are activated and used to prevent this.
