• 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 header for the optional "Trope Namer" section that may appear on some works pages (see the nearly identical {{tropelist}}). This makes a gray box that clearly delineates a "trope namer" section from either description or trope examples listings, and allows use of all of the normal headers for subsections. It also adds "Category:Trope Namers" to the page that the template is used on.
Place the template {{tropenamer}} immediately above the listing of tropes named by or for a particular work. It will automatically include the name of the work in italics:
Tropenamer/doc is the Trope Namer for:
With an argument named page will alter the default work name. This is {{tropenamer|page=And Now for Something Completely Different}}:
And Now for Something Completely Different is the Trope Namer for:
To provide entirely alternate text, provide it as an unnamed argument to the template, like {{tropenamer|A long time ago, in a tropelist far far away...}}.
A long time ago, in a trope list far far away...
