All-The-Tropers who are familiar with Wikidata may wish to weigh in at d:wikidata:property proposal/All the Tropes identifier. For those unfamiliar with Wikidata, this Flow topic is provided for discussion; in a nutshell, it is a database organised by the Wikimedia Foundation, the steward organisation of Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons and many other projects, to catalogue all of human knowledge. That includes tropes and websites that themselves catalogue tropes, so the linked proposal is an internal document that seeks to make it easier to link concepts to pages on All The Tropes (TV Tropes has had a similar successful proposal in the past). The only effect anticipated on ATT might be greater traffic.

That's good to hear. I left a comment on the page you linked.


@Robkelk@Looney Toons@Labster As fellow site founders, would you care to comment further?

IRC, Discord, Reddit, Twitter, and NNTP

You have links for IRC, Discord, Reddit, and Twitter. Why not also add NNTP? Some of us are using NNTP, and I might be willing to add a newsgroup to my own NNTP server for All The Tropes, although it would probably be better to be hosted by Miraheze instead, I think.

(Also, why does it specify "false" as the title for the new topic by default?)

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

The "false" thing seems to be a backend glitch.


As for that newsgroup, link me to this when it's ready and let's see where it goes if you decide to donate your bandwidth towards that end.. If it's a good place for tropers to gather, I'll be willing to put adding it our social networks up for consideration.


Our Discord is run by fans with our blessing, don't see why a fan newsgroup wouldn't be worth considering.

@Labster @Looney Toons


My newsgroup-fu is really weak, can't even remember the last time I looked at one, either of you gentlemen want to give this a whirl? Have to admit I have very little idea what I doing despite using the Pan newsgroup reader.

I haven't made use of UseNet is at least a decade, because my current ISP doesn't host it, and I didn't want to pay for access through a web-based provider. In any case I won't have time to look at this until I get off work, and not even right away then.

Zzo38 (talkcontribs)

Access to Usenet is not required to access this server, since it is a independent NNTP server. (Even if you do need access to Usenet for other reasons, there are some free ones.)

Fair enough, I have no objection.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

The only reason I could see for keeping it is that it highlights new pages created by tropers who are not yet autopatrolled - but we can get the same information from the Recent Changes page.

No objections to either deleting or keeping the section.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

No further comments either way after two more days; I'm making the change.
