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.

Recently, some questions have come up about "deadnaming", or using names for people who changed them to something for whatever reason and now go by another.


I have reached out to FANDOM Staff on the topic and plan to defer to their decision, but until they hand down a firmer policy to abide by (which will be our default from then on), here is my personal stance.

This wiki is a politics and social issue free zone. I have no desire to cater to bigots of any shade, including transphobia, which is one of the major reasons this seems to be an issue. The goal of this wiki is to catalog and discuss media, their tropes, and performers and creators of said media. For sake of accuracy and continuity, noting when certain roles were performed under certain names is preferred for reasons of accuracy to the time of release of certain works, but if someone changes their name from "John Doe" to "Awesome Maximus', then I would otherwise refer to them by their current name where applicable.

This is not intended as derogatory nor to cause offense to anyone who had a name change for any reason, it is simply the intent of this wiki to keep accurate information insofar as when certain people performed certain roles so as to establish accurate information on work credits and continuity of their career if they are credited under one name for some works and a different name for others (like how some Stephen King books were written under the pen name Richard Bachman).


Again, this is a provisional policy until FANDOM hands down firmer instructions, so please understand this is not a rule of iron until FANDOM hands down their final say.
