  • Hello, I noticed you deleted a character page I created. Why is that?

      Loading editor
    • Improper page markup. We now have a preloadable page template feature that will put down the proper page markup so you can recreate the page with proper markup again if you like.

      I apologize for the trouble this may have caused, but I'm trying to standardize the quality of all pages here, and those that don't fit policy on this will be removed.

  • Is it okay for any of the Nightmare Fuel or Tear Jerker pages to have only one example on them? I ask this because the Nightmare Fuel and Tear Jerker pages for Scoob! each have only one example on them.

  • Could I be Admin? There's a few pages that need cleaning up (I'm in the process of renovating the Vanity Plate/Nightmare Fuel page and I fixed the SpongeBob SquarePants/Nightmare Fuel page) and I added more tropes and examples to some pages (Toonami comes to mind.) Cheers!

  • It's been a while, GethN7.

    Did you deleted Ultraman Orb/Funny because it didn't fit this site's manual of style? Or I was too outdated? Just curious.

  • Why were the YMMV/Beauty and the Beast and Awesome/American Girls Collection pages deleted? I'm not mad or planning to fight for them. Just curious. I noticed a few of the Awesome/Heartwarming/YMMV pages I made are gone overall.

    • I'm cleaning up anything that doesn't fit our manual of style.

      You can recreate the page using the proper markup provided by the preloaded template feature we now have, this was maintenance to clean out all pages that are not properly filled out with the basic page markup.

    • Ah, gotcha. Do any of my other pages not fit? I'm asking so I can save the text and rebuild the pages, I wish I'd thought to do that with the others first.

    • I'm going to declare a freeze on deleting more pages for now. Feel free to check until tomorrow afternoon for any that may not match basic page markup and fix those till then.

  • The change in how spoilers are displayed has made some of the entries look wonky, plus the "show spoilers by default" option doesn't seem to exist anymore.

    • Gotcha. The site looks good, by the way, I love the new background.

    • Thanks, decided this place looked duller than dirt the old way.

  • Why did you delete Unpublished Works like Aurira Borealis and Company? Are fan ideas all of the sudden banned? The regular TV Tropes doesn't ban fan works.

    • Because OUR policy is not to store such things in the main namespace unless it can be proven the work is REAL and exists in some form.

      Until then, you need to keep the work in your userspace, like User:UserExample/UnpublishedWork example.

      If the work becomes REAL, then it can be moved to the main namespace and troped like any other work.

  • Attempted to use the Page Creator for new pages and it gave me this other error: 
    You do not have permission to create pages, for the following reason:
    All The Tropes Wiki has restricted the ability to create new pages. You can go back and edit an existing page, or log in or create an account
    Screencap: https://imgur.com/QJoY7Bt


    I also tried to use the page templates and it threw up this error: 

    JavaScript from "allthetropes.fandom.com"
    No valid syntax found at "Template:Works Page/preload" or page is missing.

    ​​​​​​​Screencap: https://imgur.com/VH7GbPj

    Ended up creating the page I needed via oldschool ways in the end, but I'm telling you anyway just in case.

  • Hello. I'd like to find the name for a particular trope. Imagine you're a pilot, and something bad happens, and you need to also do something risky to save everyone? So you do that risky thing, land it in the river, everyone is saved, but people criticize your risky decision?

    Or say you're a military commander, and the enemy is attacking. You guys are pinned, so you lead a desperate attack back, and despite losing tons of men, you manage to turn the enemy back. Despite saving the area you're occupying, you are criticized back home for the apparent "senseless slaughter" of your men.

    Or say you're a firefighter, and there is a large fire ravaging the countryside. You have a plan, but know it's risky. Left with no other option, you enact the plan, and you manage to route the fire. However, the people criticize you for your terrible leadership, using a maneuver that endangered innocent people in the countryside as well as put your fellow firefighters in danger. However, no one was harmed and you ended up saving everyone.

    Sorry if this makes no sense, but you can let me know if you need clarification. What is this trope?

    • Yes, I think a new subtrope/trope would be needed. I'll help work on it, just guide me on what to do and who I need to talk to/work with.

    • Make a new page with the title "Trope Workshop:(whatever the trope title is), add the proper markup and categories for a trope page and add the {{trope workshop}} template on the page so people know it's a work in progress.

      Try to get three or more examples that would qualify for your new trope and make sure we have no other trope that matches.

      I'll take a look at it and if it looks well-formatted and researched, I'll approve it to be made an actual trope.

    Looks like the user who's super obsessed with the Gibo anime and games, Galacticbattle333-fduser, has made a double account to keep adding stuff about it. Hm.
