• 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.

Here at last is a section where you can put all those nagging questions that have had you scratching your head about various stories.

If no Headscratchers page currently exists for the work you're confused about, feel free to add one. The easiest way to determine if there's a Headscratcher page for a work is to look at that work's main page. The navigation bar across the top of the page lists all its possible subpages, linking to the ones that already exist and listing the ones that don't under "Create New".

If "Headscratchers" is listed under "Create New", just click on it to create the page. The template should load to add the proper tags and categories to the page, so once it's saved it will automatically become available through the nav bar and automatically added here.

Note: "Headscratchers" are for sincere questions and discussing Fridge Logic, not for stealth complaining like "Why does <insert anything here> suck so much?". That's why we axed the original name, "It Just Bugs Me".
