Tropedia

  • 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.

Like Do We Have This One? and How Did We Miss This One?, one of the Trope Workshop Stock Phrases. Common when you know you've got a trope, can describe it fairly well, and even have a few examples at hand. But you just can't come up with a title that can describe what you're talking about while also being snappy and memorable. Or worse, the one you are thinking of is just terrible.

So you slap "Needs A Better Title" on the top and let the Wiki Magic take care of it.

A useful resource to get A Better Title is the Naming a Trope page. If it got launched with a crappy title, you can also take it to the Trope Workshop and ask for help.

Never attempt to rename an existing trope without bringing it up for discussion, even if it has "Needs A Better Title" at the top; it will be quickly reverted — see Everything You Wanted to Know About Changing Titles. And remember that Redirects Are Free.
