Your bot is breaking categories

1
Robkelk (talkcontribs)

All The Tropes uses "Category:{{PAGENAME}}" to identify that a trope, work, or creator is the top part of a hierarchy of pages.

"Category:{{PAGENAME}}" is the format used in the new-page templates.

If we wanted to have {{PAGENAME}} replaced with the name of the page, we would have coded the template to do that. The fact that we did not should tell you something.

I have been replacing "Category:foo" with "Category:{{PAGENAME}}" manually on existing pages every time I see it for years now. I don't appreciate a bot coming in and re-breaking what I've worked to fix.

I have blocked your bot for one day so that it cannot do more of this damage to the wiki. Please fix your bot before running it again.

Putting out the dumpster fire on the Donald Trump page

NormAtredies (talkcontribs)

Hello. Sorry to drag you into this, but I think an even-handed approach is needed.

I think there is a problem on a trope that needs more moderator oversight and a more even-handed approach in my opinion.

Even despite moderator oversight (Robkelk has overseen and posted ideas of his own on that page), the page for troping Donald Trump and discussions related keeps degenerating into a one-sided hate session that breaks the rules of All The Tropes. They try to apply villain tropes to Donald Trump despite the rules for those tropes and the website saying that hero and villain tropes aren't to be used for real people (trope that have been suggested or added include Karma Houdini and Shut Up, Hannibal). For reference here are the threads in question. Warning, they are long.

I hope that this problem can be resolved (and hope I don't face backlash because this includes reporting a moderator).

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

No, that is perfectly fine. I posted a comment in response I hope helps things.

NormAtredies (talkcontribs)

I apologize for how I handled it. I didn't mean to go to Labster first then you when Labster did nothing. It wasn't because he didn't respond, I messaged him first then messaged you too because I wasn't sure how often he'd be on and did so shortly after. But I do see how that would look bad and I'll take an "L" there. Also, thank you for bringing a more even-handed voice to the discussion.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

The fact you had the maturity to admit fault means something. Thanks for being willing to apologize for the misunderstanding.

Post moderation - anti-spam measure

1
Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Hello!

You probably already notice the site message at the top of the page. As a result of the Great Miraheze Spam Flood that affected multiple wikis in December 2020, we have instituted moderation of posts. Most people's edits and image uploads will not appear immediately, the way that they would on Wikipedia... but yours will. This is a privilege (given for consistently good edits and being a Troper in good standing), not a right.

This privilege comes with a responsibility: You also have Moderation rights. Whenever somebody makes an edit that requires moderation, it will appear at Special:Moderation until somebody with Moderation rights either approves or rejects it. Please pitch in when there are posts waiting for moderation. I trust that only spam will be rejected. ๐Ÿ˜€

Can you please keep warning me on my talkpage the more pages I vandalise? Then after around 6 or 7 tries, please block me. You know I was created to demonstrate the trope Bluenose Bowdleriser

QuestionableSanity (talkcontribs)

I see you're having fun with this.

Am I allowed to roll back the edits during this charade?

BlueNosy (talkcontribs)

OK.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Im chill with this as long as it doesn't cause major disruptions and you stop when it becomes clear it IS causing a major disruption.

BlueNosy (talkcontribs)

You know I'm designed to be as horrible as possible to show people what a wiki vandal is like. Normally I'm a good faith character as Tau Ceti but not this.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Stop. It's no longer funny and it's just pissing people off.

NoxiousSludge (talkcontribs)

As far as I'm concerned, it was never funny. I'm a firm believer that ironic shitposting is still ultimately shitposting.

Umbire the Phantom (talkcontribs)

I know I've been away a minute, but what's going on with the talk page deletions?

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

The pages that are being deleted (or edited when a deletion is not needed) contain remnants of a now defunct extension called LiquidThreads. While replaced with the current Flow/Structured Discussions talk page style, the LQT remnants have been causing database issues, so I've been blowtorching as many remnants as possible.

Whenever a talk page is not made by a spammer, has legitimate edits (aside from my own), and was not made by past troublemakers, all efforts have been made to remove only the LQT information.

Umbire the Phantom (talkcontribs)

Aye, that'll explain it. Thanks.

File:Angel-Devil Shipping.jpg is missing

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Hi Geth,

The file history says you uploaded File:Angel-Devil Shipping.jpg. The file itself is 404. Do you still have it, or know where to find it?

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

I'll have to hunt it down again.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Thanks. I'll leave the file description page up for you, then.

TheNothingness (talkcontribs)

Hi GethN7,

Just wanted to let you know that I've created a Discord for All The Tropes, with specific servers for different things. It's unofficial, however. If I have your permission, I'll put the invite link in the talk page.

- TheNothingness

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Go ahead and send me the link. I have no objection to a Discord service for this site at all, but before I do anything further, I'd at least like to get a look at at what you created if for no other reason than curiosity.

TheNothingness (talkcontribs)

The Recap template is borked.

QuestionableSanity (talkcontribs)

When I used it, the {{ROOTPAGE}} part just wrote out the category tag as article text, instead of actually adding the category.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

The template should be fixed now, thanks for catching that.

QuestionableSanity (talkcontribs)

It also has the {{trope}} template instead of the {{work}} template.

And the {{work}} template appears to not be working correctly; when I insert it, it goes off the page.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Whoops, forgot that. Should have fixed the other bugs as well.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

((I deleted an active instance of the work template from QS's post because this thread was turning up as a work page without a trope list. I apologize if I stepped on any toes.))

Tycio (talkcontribs)

do you know how I can get AnimeBaths.Miraheze.Org to redirect to AnimeBaths.org like how AllTheTropes.Miraheze.Org redirects to AllTheTropes.Org?
