• 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 page doesn't have an image but should, it has an image that's too large, or the page has a hotlinked image. You could fix it yourself, but you're not familiar enough with the trope or show to find a fitting image, or you don't have the time to do it, or you just think someone else can do better.

So put {{Needs Image}} near the top of the page and hope Wiki Magic corrects the problem.

Tips on Finding (or Making) Images

Here are some suggestions for image sources:

Make sure that any picture uploaded will illustrate the trope even to someone who is not familiar with the fandom; otherwise, the picture will be Just a Face and a Caption.

If you've found and uploaded an image, use a right aligned image if there is too little description text. That avoids a lot of white space. Instructions for how to upload and insert images can be found at Images in Wiki Pages and Uploading and Adding an Image to a Page.

DeviantART types: See List of Pages Artists Can Illustrate for a detailed take on how to submit your own art for trope illustration. (The list there is just a pointer back to this page.)
