I...I actually made a worthwhile suggestion...WHAT WITCHCRAFT IS THIS!? If the Wicked Witch posts taking credit, I will scream.

Also, we do need to add Adam F and Peter to the list.

Oh yeah! I almost forgot those two had been confirmed.

I know we should add the Cabal, but we hardly have any info on them (even Mr. A's confirmation sounds vague). You may add placeholders for now, but the tropes are going to have to wait for their plotline.

I don't think Mr. A had space to name them all specifically in that tweet, and it's fair to say their plotline began with the letters. I don't see a problem with adding them now.

Cabal, Adam, and Pan all need new sections...

You can go ahead and add a section for Moriarty too now...

It's been confirmed by Holmes. He's here.

Um? All I can see is a mention of a "good-looking guy who could use a shave".

Look on the sidebar and you will see recent comments. Click on the one by hdetectiveservices.

(But if Don Juan is that guy with the glasses... That's not what Google gives me. On the other hand, I could say the same about Morgana.)

Isn't the guy with the glasses Moriarty? Don Juan is the guy in purple, with the goatee.

Um... That was sooo out of the question for me that I didn't even consider it. It... does make some sense, though.

Ok, back on tracks. Does anyone know how to align the images properly? Currently we align the text with the line breaks, which is clearly not the way it meant to be. I tried to use hidden line before (forgot the tag), but it didn't work. Suggestions?

Morgana could use a trope along the lines of everyone hitting on her. I'm not too familiar with Tropese.
If you can make it better, don't make it sentient.

If the TV Tropes page is ever going to bring folks here, we need to get to crosswicking it pretty seriously. There's basically nothing that links in except Drinking Game.

Basically, we should go to every trope listed on the main and character pages, and add the game to those trope pages.

This is a good call. Also, several of the character pages are outdated.

Well, I would start with the main page tropes and the really notable incidents on the character page, such as the Cat's trolling of the Cabal. After that, we can branch out to getting on every other page. We definitely need to Entry Pimp it at the slightest excuse though, so eventually we will hopefully have a mention on every single trope page noted, even some of the ones for metaguards, because it will only let more people see it.

Even if people get to the Tvtropes page, I don't see any message stating explicitly that yes, you can help. Which is strange, considering this is an interactive ARG which is taking place right now.

Someone add a first line to the main page as:
"This is a currently running ARG. If you're interested in joining, please [[link Watch The Footage]]"
?
Would that do it?

Problem is, I'm not really sure if that is allowed under the rules of TvTropes. As it is in-article advertising.

But it also doesn't make sense to conceal the fact that people can join. How about something more neutral like: "This is an in-progress ARG that welcomes newcomers. Those just starting out are invited to [[http://www.watchthefootage.com watch the footage]]."
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

Well... I'll add it to end of the description section, as to not be in the way of the Wiki info... If we need to, we can remove it...

I am 100000% sure TV Tropes is okay with advertising this ARG on TV Tropes. After all, TV Tropes has already advertised this ARG on TV Tropes. ;)

We can now add Todd and Larson images from the recent comic. Also, if you add the ARG to another page, let us know so we have a list. I may start updating the OP to note which trope pages we have added examples to. That should streamline things.
