You are so much brave. Out of all users, you, me, and my bot, SignBot all are the best. We all love this wiki. Mohamed Saed 21:56, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

Why I can't edit anything?

Because I was about to edit Fire Emblem Fates, but the site isn't letting me.

I ran into that too when going over Spice Girls / YMMV. If you can, can you admin edit it... thank you.

This was a Miraheze-wide malfunction that hit sometime around 4:30 Eastern time or so. It seems to be fixed, or in the process of being fixed, now.

Thanks for your contribution!

We've been needing a page for The Last Jedi for quite a while. However, might I suggest in the future using the Page Creator when creating new pages? It will provide you with all the basic markup needed for the kind of page you're creating, with helpful advice in comments right in the new page. That way, you won't leave behind a half-built, uncategorized, badly marked-up page behind when you pause in your work, as unfortunately you did with The Last Jedi.

Here are a few useful links that'll help you create handsome, properly-marked up pages here:

And just in case you need it, since one of your edit comments mentions TV Tropes:

Be aware, by the way, that copying content directly from TV Tropes is illegal (due to license differences) and any copied content will be deleted. For more detail on why, see here.

I've already applied all the necessary corrections and fixes to your new page so you don't have to, but you might want to take a look at what I did while checking out some of these help pages, so you know what to do in the future.

Again, thanks! And welcome!

Thanks for the advice.

So, how much time do I have left for that that trope page? Because, aside from a TMNT video game that doesn't have a page on here and whatever TVT is listing, I need to do some research into a few RPG series and how 40K works. So that'll probably take a while

Trope pages tend to sit in the Trope Workshop until somebody decides they're either good enough to "launch" into the main wiki or will never be that good. Either way, somebody has to make a proposal to either launch or axe a Trope Workshop page - there's no set time limit. (I've seen them launch in less than a week; I've also seen them sit for half a year before someone asks to delete them.)

Powerful, but Inaccurate

Thanks for the new trope candidate -- and thanks for not copying TVT's original word-for-word -- but trope candidates need to be created in the Trope Workshop (just putting the template on the page doesn't do the trick). We also leave all the medium type headers in place until it is formally launched.

I've moved the page into the Workshop, for what is certain to be only a token stay there. In the future, though, "because I need it for a works page" is not a good reason to just dump a new trope in the main namespace.
