Edit Requests for Locked Pages:

This thread is for requesting edits to Locked Pages. Please keep the following guidelines in mind:

  1. Don't ask for a page to be unlocked here. Use this thread instead.
  2. Check Locked Pages first. Often the reason for the lock will give you some indication of what sorts of edits we will not accept.
  3. Include working links in your request to the page(s) that need edits.
  4. State your changes exactly as they should appear on the page, including proper Example Indentation, namespacing, and pothole and quote formatting.
  5. Make sure that what you want to add is actually a valid example.
  6. We do not edit archived articles, even to correct links.
  7. Main redirects are no longer being created for namespaced work pages. Don't ask for one.
  8. Some locked pages have ongoing cleanup threads, like Complete Monster (Thread) and Five-Man Band (Thread). Other than purely technical requests, edits to these pages ought to be discussed in these threads first.

NOTE: Edited with OP's permission.

Nope. Everyone is cool. Just many projects going that require a lot of cuts.cool

You're very welcome, Fast Eddie! cool

Not a problem, Dark Confidant. For what it's worth, I do appreciate your help on clearing out the ptitle markup on various pages. That project is now almost done. cool

The Prophet Muhammad has a single wick for Chick Tracts that needs to be amended to ComicBook/ChickTracts.

Edit: Thanks lu127!

It's perfectly possible to admire building a cannon to destroy the moon, whilst lamenting the act of destruction.

Hmmm, if it's a Comic Book, I have to wonder why it's under Webcomics...

It should be moved to Comic Books (didn't check the media category). The Chick Tracts are available on the internet, but they're not actually webcomics. They are primarily distributed in printed form.

On Wikipedia, under Common Knowledge, please remove the sinkhole to Did Not Do The Research. If there are any other sinkholes to DNTDR, please remove those too.

On the Dangerously Short Skirt page, the example for Soundscape (in Troper Works) needs to be removed— the work in question hasn't been published, and its page is currently in Darth Wiki.
Ook.

There has been a consensus that The Mad Doctor and Shadow Blot from Epic Mickey don't count as complete monsters. They are on Video Games page and this is the description. They have to be removed.

  • Epic Mickey has The Mad Doctor, as he was in his original cartoon short. [[spoiler" And also the true Shadow Blot, who is pure evil as opposed to the smaller Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds Blot that's been around for most of the game]].

I request that the edit mentioned in this post be made to the western animation section of CM. I had another user agree with this idea in the other thread.

While you're at it, the entry on Robotnik could use some rewording. I'm not sure what exactly to replace it with, but I think it should involve less emphasis on comparison to other versions of the character.

[up] I cut the Naugus line, but as I know nothing about Sonic, if you could edit the Robotnik entry as you want it to look and post it, it'll be put in.

For the page quote on the Mondegreen page, Homestar Runner is to be namespaced and the NotAWikiWord markup is not needed.

[up] Got it...had to think about what you were asking about with that second part until I paid attention to the coding. *Face Palm*
Not meaning to start one, but the last sentence of the first paragraph of Edit War is a little grammatically imprecise:

"If these problems become too unmanageable then it may lead to a need for page locking."

I feel that this would be better:

"If these problems become unmanageable, it may be necessary to lock the page"
The first "sentence" of Emo Teen in the second-to-last paragraph is an abominable mess of a run-on:

"Note that in Real Life most definitions of "emo" require that you act like your life sucks when it doesn't to qualify, but since There Are No Therapists, no matter how dark a Back Story a fictional character has, if he acts even remotely unhappy with his lot in life, he is "emo"."

A better and more clear way to state this is:

"In Real Life, most definitions of "emo" require that you act like your life sucks when it doesn't to qualify. In fiction, however, There Are No Therapists, and no matter how dark a Back Story a character has, acting even remotely unhappy is sufficient to be labelled "emo"."
On Horny Devils, Merlin (in the third paragraph after the list) is potholed to King Arthur. We have a page on Merlin, so please kill the pothole and link accordingly.

There's also very inconsistent capitalization, with Incubus and Succubus being inconsistently capitalized (or not capitalized) throughout the article. Since it's not a proper noun nor a technical term, all the capitalized instances should be made lowercase.

The link on Fanfic.My Immortal needs updating again. Here is the next one that's been found.

I request, as per discussion in this thread, that Scroop be removed from the Disney CM list.

Within the thread, Dr Psyche seems to think Scroop counts as a CM, Shaoken doesn't seem to have particularly strong opinions one way or another, and 32 Footsteps feels the character's signs of loyalty to other pirates constitutes a redeeming enough quality to warrant removal from the list. I'm inclined to side with 32 Footsteps because so far as I've seen, that user seems more experienced with that thread's discussion than Dr Psyche does.

Need this added to the Horny Devils page, as a sub-example to the main Diablo example on that page:

  • Diablo III also has succubi, which start appearing as you go through Arreat Crater in Act III. They are stated to be the daughters of Cydaea, Azmodan's consort and one of his Sin Lieutenants, the Maiden of Lust. Act IV features the Vile Temptresses and Hell Witches, which act in all ways like the succubi.

On Barack Obama, Pokémon needs to be namespaced to Franchise/.

The My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic tropes from A to G was getting real close to approaching 400000 characters, so I gathered all the tropes from the subpages and split them into six subpages. Shall we have the examples index on the mane page replaced with these pages?
