We should have a Shout Out Page created! We can put Shout Outs for each major Meta-Guard in separate Folders on the page!

What exactly do you mean :? Do the Meta-Guards have a lot of shout-outs in their stories?

Vanity much? Shout Outs by US shouldn't be there... Not really. And the Gurt and guardians don't have that many to justify a whole page.

Yea... With the number of references and Shout Outs I make almost every other post, cataloging them would be impossible.

Not impossible, just immensely impractical. :ugeek:

I've created a Just for Fun page for the forum tropes, but its link is not showing up on the main page. Does anyone know why that is?

Why are you creating even more pages?! T_T
I would think that it needs to be declared to appear... But the way this is going we'll have 50 pages with one trope each... Let the main page grow in size before segmenting it, no?

Besides, not ALL forum tropes would fit on the jff page...

I'm sorry >.< I just thought that the tropes about the forum didn't belong on the main page, but that you'd be angry with me if I would delete them altogether.

No no no. I'm not angry. It's just that I don't really see a reason to make visitors open even more tabs when you don't even need to scroll the page to read it.

I actually don't think they are amiss on the main page for now. Just leave them there until the place gets truly huge and we actually need to worry about this.

Whoever move the forum tropes, put them back, they're fine where they are.

Don't do big edits like that without mentioning it first.

Well, he did mention it, but no one was here to tell him they should stay...

Ignore the post I just deleted, I didn't look back far enough, you did say before.

But if you mention something, at least wait for someone to respond before doing it. If no one responds ask again.

To get back on topic, I have some homework to do right now, but afterwards I'm going to catalog a lot more tropes for our fictioneers. I want to make sure that we're accurately recording info about the characters loose in our world as well as the real people caught up in it all (the therapist, average Joe, etc.) My goal for today is to add significant and meaningful tropes to each character. Anybody who wants to assist is welcome!

Well, at first I thought you deleted the forum tropes altogether, (and I was like "wut") but then I saw they were moved to Just For Fun. It would be better if you mentioned that in history - I wouldn't have to look it up here. But I think they are fine where they are now.

Would Dr Joan Lawson be a Know Nothing Know It All? I mean she says she's a therapist but she needs our help when it comes to good therapy methods... Or is that the wrong trope?

Sorry, I usually only do small edits that don't require me to clarify why I edited. I'll think of it from now on :mrgreen:

Added "Authority in Name Only," "Our Nudity is Different" and "Fun Personified" to Mr. A's entry. Now to move on to Joe...

Would you mind putting them in alphabetic order as well?
Anyways, I'll help out :)

All tropes on any page should be in alphabetical order.

Oh, something I just remembered - should we include a link somewhere to Creepy Doll? I was rewatching WTF, and I nearly wet myself when I rewatched that video with the puppets (we all know the one).
