Isn't this kind of a WMG forum?

Haiku only makes sense if we have haiku to put in there. Feel free to release your inner poet. Otherwise it's just a useless blank page.

Laconic, yeah, useful:
The ARG launched on TvTropes Wiki by the cast of Echo Chamber in september 2012.
No reason not to do it, but, well... It's laconic.

WMG is also kind of pointless. We'll use it as much as we use the discussion page. And we don't really use the discussion page... So I don't think it's necessary right now, we do all our guessing here on the forum, no need to force yet another tab to be open.

We will just add a bunch of the stranger theories we come up with to the WMG page after the whole thing is over for our own amusement.
Normal people are the easiest to manipulate. Too smart and they have an annoying tendency to catch wind of your plans, too dumb and, in the words of a certain pirate, "You can never tell when they are about to do something incredibly...stupid."

Added a Haiku. Should I make it all caps, as if Mr. A were saying it? Also, what do I do on my own page? LOL I've been lurking on TVTropes forever, but never bothered to register, so a lot of this is new to me.

Well, if you want it to sound like cAke then you can of course all-caps it. Maybe one of his instantiations is into haiku?

And you can just put some tropes or info about yourself on your page, maybe add a link to the ARG. Your choice :)

...Well now I feel sorry for Mister A.

Hhe is totally welcome to come have some cake in the coffee room though, if he wants. It may not be a party, but it should be interesting all the same.

Of course it's a party. If you can't enjoy yourself in the midst of a rapture when CAN you enjoy yourself?

Oh lord, I don't know how he's going to feel about all of these Haikus

Should you have a job,
Mister Administrator,
Would advise not quitting.

I do not have mad haiku skills. Also yours were actually pretty good, really ;) .

I got a little carried away...I added quotes to everyone in the character page except me of course and I also added a few tropes.

Eh, I kinda like my original A God Am I quote, in the main R+J thread. The one in my thread was me consciously trying to recreate the original, and like most copies isn't as good as the original. It really only works if you're not planning or thinking ahead and just run with your train of thought. Bit like Gurren Lagann (no idea why this parallel occurred to me), as long as you don't think about exactly what you're doing, things end up awesome!

Oh, remembered why Gurren Lagann. Where is the pic of Don wearing Kamina shades that Dryu apparently posted?

EDIT: Changing my sig to the original, don't know why I didn't just do that originally.

The voices in my head tell me that we saved the world. However, they also told me that George Clooney's face is on the dollar bill, so... meh. The voices are more fun, anyway.

Btw the therapist's quote is boring. Please replace it with something better. I ran out of time with that one. I need to sleep now. It just hit 4 am.

EDIT: nvm, fix'd

Also, are you guys ok with moving all the tropes about the forum to a Just For Fun page? They're not really interesting for people who just wanna know about the ARG.

Wait... the quote below my name isn't mine, it's Sicon's :P


Sorry! It's not easy to see who posted what in peoples profiles since it posts quotes as if they were regular posts. :oops: It's fixed now!

Sorry Kariese... I removed the Guy in Real Life trope from your section. Your quote itself says you're not a Guy In Real Life... I thought it way too weird to go Gender Confusion into Samus is a Girl and then have Guy in Real Life there... And it's not like you use a masculine persona to fit the trope description anyway... Should I add it back?
