you mean ANANSI.
And... hmm, yes, Anansi probably should be up there, since we have semi-canon on him.
But I don't want to add it, for semi-obvious reasons. Feel free to put him up. But I don't think people without ANY plot need to be there.
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

Ah, I see. I don't remember when he was last mentioned in the timeline, but I've got a short memory, so, yeah.
I'm back, not that anyone cares.

Maybe we should make a section for the characters that didn't have any interaction.
(Also, rEALITY and Jester's plotlines can actually have a mention, especially considering that they BOTH turned out to be right in a way. o_O)

On Pan's image. I want it to include that Stripperific Tinkerbell, both because it gives a context for his reaction ( :lol: ), and more obvious reasons. :gurt: But I'm not sure how to fit them both.

Speaking of nothing in particular, don't you think that James Raikes should be on the characters page by now?
He's just become Chekhov's Gunman. And stuff.

Refresh my memory, please, James Raikes who?
EDIT: Forget it. Again, as soon as I ask, I change tabs and see it in another thread.

Well, I'm sure someone who is more experienced at editing will figure out some way to fix the format. Out of curiosity, why is Moriarty's pic the odd one out? It's from a different echo.

I tried to get the one from the Cabal echo, but it was too big.

Do we have a trope for Magic = Technology?
Metaneko is a cat. That is seemingly internet omniscient and can send emails from a non-existent email address.
The Witch. No curses work, but she could go SCIENCE to the point of reviving a dinosaur, and eating it.
Now there is Morgan in this exchange with me.

Three make a pattern, don't you think?

Thread-hopping to address TWWP's issue.
We need to align the pictures properly. I don't think it can be done with line breaks anymore, and I don't know any other ways. If no one can fix it, maybe we should take it to TRS back on the wiki?

Er.. thank you for not screaming at me, Sicon and Dryunya.

Also, ummm.... for the Character Sheet, did I get some of the tropes right?

You did fine with the tropes.

As for the photo alignment, I tried my best with the line breaks. I'm not sure how to handle this, perhaps we should get new photos and cut them down to a squarer size so they don't take up too much room. I'm not doing it It would be too much for me.

Also, something bugs me about R&J. They're in the same image, but different sections. I suggest we either:
  • Merge them into a single section with a single image, with to subtitles as "Tropes that Apply to Romeo" and "Tropes that apply to Juliet";
  • Or actually split the image and have each be in his own stand alone section.
Also, Alphabetical Order for the characters?

I vote for splitting the image, I reckon both characters should have their own space :)
They sometimes say, "the place where I am right now was circled on a map for me"... Unfortunately, I kind of suck at orienteering.

Their picture is the only one of acceptable quality so far. We can wait for another echo, but I like Pixel's single section approach.

Personally I don't like it.
The text is clearly upside down and the image is weird because it was drawn to be seen with him hanging down... And crazy awesome as it would be to have him hanging on his profile picture, I don't think that is a good image to use in general. Don't switch back on my account. I just wouldn't keep it, but wait for more opinions.

I personally preferred the silly mask picture myself.

I agree with WitchPixie; the upside-down text is dizzying. The mask picture works better.

I know I'm not supposed to be here, Qara, but I follow twitter, mkay?

Considering that we have no pictures for Deanna and Brad, and it's unlikely we'll get any, I have a temptation to use lolcats from Quixote's feed, with a caption "As seen by Don Quixote".
Anyone crazy enough to support me? :roll:
