  • In the role playing game, there was a bomb in the building, but I decided to avoid saying it because I believed that it was implied.

    Uh, something like that should be said, and not implied, since, you know, it's a bomb.

    Also, I don't like you just barging in on my plot like that, you should've at least send a PM asking for my permission. Yes, I know that part of the fun of RP is interacting with other users, but it's just a common courtesy.

    I'm going to be honest with you, LJS. I've thought about that page a good bit in the past - mainly to chuckle - and I just don't, personally, see much benefit to updating it extensively. Maybe a mention of The 'Shroom, a mention of forum games, a mention of some roleplays, but, really, just that, brief mentions of "yeah, these exist" at most, I think would do.

    I'm pretty much always for preserving content in multiple places, and I think this community has a rich, fascinating history that I quite enjoy sharing with people, but, even with that... I just don't think there's a good reason to go into elaborate detail on a public-facing TV Tropes page. Besides, much of it would be incomprehensible to the average reader of TVTropes who hasn't ever poked around this site. I mean, imagine trying to get someone completely unfamiliar with this place to understand Big Changes' significance and the emotions we felt during his reveal, or how Tom Nook being wrongfully executed almost disrupted the wedding between a Monty Mole and a Bullet Bill with an explosives company in a bad future timeline in Neo Bowser City in a skyscraper built on the former headquarters of a newspaper publisher, or even something like the story arc of Shmaluigi.

    I mean, it'd be kind of fun reading all of that as an outside, I admit, but, also, without a lot of additional context, just incomprehensible. I don't think it would provide any benefit to us as a formal project, especially not for the amount of work required.

    That said, that's just my personal opinion. I'm not speaking for anyone else, and, I mean, obviously if individual people want to go edit it, I can't stop anyone (and won't try to).

    But, please, if someone does edit it, please remove that line about The Three Mushketeers. It's been long enough. I think it can come off now.

    Even as someone who has clearly frequented this forum for over 10 years, a lot of this stuff is foreign to me. Only a tiny fraction of the entire MarioWiki community themselves knows this lore (the entire community which includes people who exclusively edit the wiki, people who just post in Marioverse or in forum games/rp, or just casually post profile posts, that sort of thing), and putting it on TVTropes bereft of any sort of context doesn't exactly benefit any of us when 95% of it requires heavy contextualization and in-jokes to understand it.

    I'm not trying to downplay the heavy involvement of dedicated corners of the community, I'm just matter-of-factly stating why a lot of our content works perfectly as-is within the confines of this community and why attempting to reference it outside it is pretty awkward and confusing.
    Hey can we revive or make some new, intersting RPs, like the Longform one? I got some new ideas itchin' to be unleashed.

    Giving Longform a renewed push has been a low-priority idea of mine for... well, basically since the original version ran out of steam.

    I have too many other things that are higher priorities to do anything with it, but the reason I bring it up at all is that there's been some thought given to ways to make a Longform-style RP work better - make it more accessible - on here, so you can drop me a line and I can share some of those with you so you could hopefully have a firmer ground to start on.

    I've been amused for approximately a year now that apparently we're most famous for a 2010 sprite comic that a good portion of our community probably isn't even aware of.

    I don't know if you watch Defunctland but there's this one video where he plays a Long John Silver's ad and that ad gets stuck in my head sometimes when I see your name now.

    i just found out that there is a "quote" section in Forum Update in Pipe Plaza (underratted, go read it) and now I will try as hard as possible to have my quotes featured
    Hello Mr. Spaghetti, it has come to my attention that there is a husky character in Paw Patrol and I think it would be cool if you posted about them in 'Shroomfest because we're talking about dogs in popular culture this week and NS likes huskies, the birds supporters are already posting toucans, we gotta turn this thing around
