i just got started, i use a head set that does not translate my words properly i have gingivitis and i and my eyesight had been getting worse why don't you cut me some slack!

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

I did cut you some slack. I told you what you need to work on in order to write a decent trope candidate. I didn't need to take the time to do that.

(I fail to see how gingivitis affects your ability to type.)

i use dragon naturally speaking

Accidently uploaded an image I didn't need to upload.

I was trying to upload a poster of Step Brothers but my distracted brain uploaded a poster for Talladega Nights, a page that we already have an image for. And I don't know how to delete it now (maybe I can't).

Is there something I can do about it?

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Let me know the file name and I'll delete it for you.

Fridge pages use the same rules for spoilers that other pages use

Umbire the Phantom (talkcontribs)

Is there a rule for spoilers on Fridge sub-pages?

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

What if multiple tropes apply to one episode/article (Web Original Specifically)?

Bauerbach (talkcontribs)

I found an article on The Onion (https://www.theonion.com/kid-rock-starves-to-death-1819565599) that has multiple tropes, namely Digital Piracy Is Evil, [[I'm a Humanitarian] (implied with the passage “his last meal consisted of newspapers, cigar butts, old CD liner notes, and the partial remains of sidekick Joe C.”)], and (I think) Starving Artist. I know this may be a silly question, but would I be able to link the article in the tropes list on The Onion work page for each of those three tropes?

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Sure, why not? As long as the link is on-topic on the pages that it's added to, I don't see any problem with listing it on multiple pages.

Bauerbach (talkcontribs)

OK! I’m taking about linking it multiple times on the same page, namely the Works page for The Onion.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

You wouldn't be the first to do that. Feel free to proceed.

Cleaning up the "admins" tag

6
Robkelk (talkcontribs)

There are a lot of people named in the {{admins}} tag who don't appear to be actively administrating the wiki right now. There's no point in filling your inboxes if you aren't reading the messages.

Please reply here, saying whether you want to stay on the list. I'm posting this on February 6 -- if I don't see a reply from you before February 15, I'll assume that you do not want to continue being pinged about admin business.

@Labster @Looney Toons @GethN7 @Robkelk @QuestionableSanity @Derivative @SelfCloak

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Replying to myself, for completeness. Please keep my name on the list.

GethN7 (talkcontribs)

Same. If you aren't active and no longer wish to be or simply do not respond within a reasonable amount of time, I'm in favor of quietly removing the mod hat until such time as you can resume active service.

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

Please keep my name on the list, as well. And I second Geth's suggestion.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Agreeing with Geth's suggestion.

Summary by Robkelk

The changes included copyright violations, so no.

HDev411 (talkcontribs)

Made today 21/7. I didn't add new tropes or hopefully no copyright violations. Thanks!

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

We've already told you: Please be patient.

Because you are not listening, you're now at the bottom of my priority list. Maybe somebody else will approve your changes before I see them.

HDev411 (talkcontribs)

Ok

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

@RobKelk: HDev411 is responsible for several incidents of copyright violation -- postdating your warning to him about copyrights -- which I have had to reject or correct. Do not approve anything of his without explicitly checking it against TV Tropes.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Understood, and thank you for the information.

Summary by Robkelk

Problem existed between my keyboard and my chair. Fixed.

Umbire the Phantom (talkcontribs)

Appear to have made some mistakes while replacing potholes, it's an easy enough fix but what happened?

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

I thought I caught all of those before I saved the update... Sometimes my hand brushes against my laptop's trackpad as I'm typing, and the cursor jumps a bit.

Umbire the Phantom (talkcontribs)

Oh relatable.

Requesting temporary rollbacker for User:Agent Isai

Summary by Robkelk

Rights were granted for one week, for troubleshooting purposes

Doug (talkcontribs)

Hi Robkelk, would you be able to do me a small favour and grant Agent Isai temporary rollbacker permissions, so he can view the moderation queue for the pending edits by Thistroperz? A day or two should do the trick. He is also a member of the SRE team

Robkelk (talkcontribs)
Doug (talkcontribs)

Thanks!

Regarding one of the Princess Principle tropes...

2
Summary by Robkelk

The trope was identified as Because I'm Jonesy

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

During one of the picture dramas, Beatrice impersonated Ange while calling Princess so that Beatrice could find out whether Princess thought Beatrice was a liability to the team - not knowing Ange was standing beside Princess at the time. Princess played along.

Could this be a case of Because I'm Jonesy?

The other struck me as being a basic ulterior motive, but we don't seem to have a trope for that.

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

It could! Let's add that back in, with the trope identified.

EDIT: We're pretty close to launching this - the only thing stopping that is the fact that Dorothy, Ange, and Princess don't have individual writeups yet. (I just gave Gazelle a writeup.) I'm tempted to launch without them, and hang {{Characters need descriptions}} on the characters subpage...

Are there any special requirements for having a userpage?

Summary by Robkelk

You get a user page automatically when you create an account.

Bauerbach (talkcontribs)

I came here after getting kicked off of TV Tropes back in 2017. IIRC you need 3 successful page launches or something on there. I know All The Tropes wants to be different, but is there anything I need to have done before I can have a userpage?

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

You get a user page when you create your account. Yours is here.

As to what you put on your page... please don't get us in trouble with the law, insult other tropers, or run ads. Other than that, well, it's your page.

Bauerbach (talkcontribs)

OK, thanks!
