• 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.



Should you wish to mirror the content on Tropedia on other websites or for personal use, we are happy to provide resources to do so, as long as you obey the following rules:

  • All text content is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0) license (barring anything hosted with special permission or public domain). We ask that you include the name of the site and the URL for attribution purposes. We don't mind the reuse, modification, or redistribution of our content so long as you do so under the CC-BY-SA 3.0 license terms and seek the copyright owner's permission for any content explicitly marked as "used with permission" in the text. We currently dual license on CC BY-SA 4.0 as well, but you can use either.
  • All image content is another story. While most is either under CC-BY-SA or other compatible free licenses, some may be under other licenses or used with special permission, and for those images you should acquire the same permission we did before reusing them publicly. The copyright status of the page is listed on the image's page in the File namespace.
  • As long as you obey the first two rules, anything else you aren't barred from doing under CC BY SA 3.0 we aren't going to complain about either, so long as no other copyright or other laws are broken in a manner that reflects on us in the process.

How to acquire content dumps

Imbox style.png This page needs some cleaning up to be presentable.

This section doesn't apply, as we are hosted by FANDOM.

The Miraheze wikifarm service currently provides XML dumps of all content on Tropedia. Current revision dumps (dumps with the latest revisions of content only) are preferred due to smaller size and since CC BY SA 4.0 does not require full histories for attribution purposes, but full history dumps can be requested by either contacting the Miraheze administration on Miraheze Meta or the #miraheze IRC channel on Freenode.

Image dumps may be obtained by doing the same.

If you wish to make your own content dump, the WikiTeam provides some free tools for doing so that can be used by anyone to dump our content, please follow their instructions for use of their programs to do so.

For smaller XML dumps with only a few pages, you can use the Special:Export page.

If you wish to see previous versions of this policy, or you want to know when this policy was last updated and what was changed, please review the page history by selecting "History" from the menu at the top of this page.
