I just rolled back your edits to Pronoun Trouble
Most of your edits to Pronoun Trouble were stylistic choices and did not cause any problems, but also would not cause any issues if they were removed. These edits were problems and needed to be rolled back:
- You removed the "context" tag from an example without providing context.
- You replaced a date with the word "recent", thus requiring either rollback or the addition of the "when" tag to have somebody come in and add the date back in.
- You replaced "Category:Japanese Language" (which exists) with "Category:Useful Notes/Japanese Language" (which does not exist).
In the future, please do not remove requests for context without providing the requested context, and please do not remove actual data such as real-world dates.
A barnstar for you!
Hello Umbire the Phantom!
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, now, yours will - no more waiting for a moderator to approve your edits.
This is a privilege given for consistently good edits and being a Troper in good standing, not a right. Congratulations!
For future reference...
[U]nlike Wikipedia we do not append "(disambiguation)" or anything similar to the name of the disambiguation page -- one of its purposes is to catch any unspecific links that exist in the wiki. Making it distinct from the "common name" would defeat that purpose.
So as to make the best use of the disambiguation page you've created, I renamed "Cyclops" to "Cyclopean Creature" and your new page to just "Cyclops".
Why I just reverted your edit to "Token Lesbian"
You changed "homosexual" to "gay". Maybe this is a case of Small Reference Pools, but where I live, "gay" specifically refers to homosexual males. The trope is about homosexual females. Thus, "gay" isn't the right word for that trope. --Robkelk (talk) 03:09, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
Why add a media type to Something (ROM Hack)?
Please don't insert blank lines under Examples and Tropelist templates.
Ah, apologies. --Umbire the Phantom (talk) 20:33, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
Not to be a noodge or anything, but why are you putting so much effort into removing space characters from header markups and at the end of sentences, where those of us who learned typing on actual typewriters were trained to put two in a row? That's a whole lot of work for something that makes absolutely no difference to the wiki. -- Looney Toons (talk) 20:26, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
If you want to use the new infobox for books...
IRC and admin rights
The gist is that the person registering it needs to represent it in an official capacity, e.g. someone with access to the domain registration and such.
We had a discussion offline: @Looney Toons, @GethN7 and I are willing to make you an admin (temporarily or permanently, your choice) if you think that will let you set up an IRC project on Libera.chat. We trust you with the rights.--Robkelk (talk) 00:46, 6 July 2021 (UTC)
