• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.


A Treatise of Schemes and Tropes.png This a Useful Notes page. A Treatise of Schemes and Tropes.png

A markup language for Message Boards; slightly simpler than HTML. NOT used on the All The Tropes wiki or forums.

The most common ones, found on nearly all forums: [b]bold text[/b] [i]italic text[/i] [u]underlined text[/u] [img]http://the.address.of/an/image/to/display[/img] [url][/url] [quote]Marks text another poster said.[/quote]

Some tags also take a parameter: [url=]text to be linked[/url]

Also common on many forums: [s]strike through text[/s] [spoiler]text to hide[/spoiler] [spoiler=text label]text to hide[/spoiler] [code]computer code[/code]

Occasionally used in Faux HTML Tags, especially on forums whose software strips out anything that looks like it might be an HTML tag (like, for example, "<blah>"), on forums that don't allow HTML posting.
