About this board

Dear Ecclytennysmithylove, Welcome to All The Tropes!

All The Tropes is a wiki where we discuss the trends and patterns in all forms of media that we call Tropes. We're a place to hang out and chat about the television shows you love, a place to discover new movies to watch, and a place to offer literary criticism and analysis of pop culture. And we're happy that you want to be a part of our community.
Please, take a look at the following pages. They might prove useful to you as a newcomer here:

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask an administrator. Once again, we hope you feel welcome here, and happy troping!

Thanks, and regards,

Can I ask you for $1?

We're 9 days into our 30 day campaign, and we've raised $537. That's fantastic! The idea of Orain, our message, our purpose - it means something. The belief that there can be a community led, a community ran, and a community funded website that's not ad-driven or profit based works.

Our community has believed in us from the beginning, and I firmly believe that our community will stand by us and continue to support us. It's okay if we don't reach our $5,000 goal. $5,000 was a best case scenario. $1,000 enables us to stay online another year. It enables us to keep looking at alternatives and other ways to stay online and cut costs. $500 halves that time and shortens our research ability. 11% of our goal is better than 0% of our goal.

I've made a pledge from the beginning. I've vowed to never force ads on this community for the purpose of keeping Orain alive. Ads are what separate us from the other farms we compete with. I will give my personal funds before I enable ads by force. Ads are a nuisance that you should have a voice in. We've toyed with and are developing the idea of individual wikis who want ads within their community. Some people can't donate a dollar, and that's okay. That's their way of giving and I'm down for that.

To the backers who have helped so far, Thank you!

If you haven't had a chance to donate so far, please please do. Your $1 will help make a difference in the WikiFarm world. You can help us stay online, free, and ad free.

If you have a little more than a dollar and want an Orain t-shirt, we've got those. We've also got hoodies, coffee cups, and blankets. Most of these things will have to be purchased in bulk so there's likely going to be an online store for the leftover donation drive items once the campaign is over.

As always, I want to hear from you. If you have ideas to help our Indiegogo campaign please send them to me or email me.

I apologize for spamming you like this, but I love Orain, I believe in Orain, and I want to fight to keep it alive. If you no longer want to receive urgent messages like these, please send me an email and I'll ensure that you're not bothered further.

With love,
Dustin "Dusti" Muniz

Punctuation... I'm curious.

Zero Dozer (talkcontribs)

Uh, just saw your edit on the Tactics Ogre characters page, noticed you did something interesting with the punctuation on spoiler-marked lines. Was there anything wrong with it?

Warning: Do not copy content from TV Tropes

I saw your edits to the Life Is Strange page, only to find out that they were taken directly from TV Tropes pages created after July 2012.[1] This is not allowed since their content is under a Creative Commons license that is incompatible from ours. I had to undo/delete your edits.

Your recent change to JoJo's Bizarre Adventure/Characters

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

I noticed that you changed "1880s Victorian England" to "1880's Victorian England". Are you sure that the text should refer to the Victorian England that belongs to 1880?

Ecclytennysmithylove (talkcontribs)

You know what, maybe that was my mistake. I wasn't sure. Stick it back to 1880s Victorian England instead. Thank you for reminding me.

Don't take this the wrong way, but...

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

You're overloading the Recent Changes log with dozens, even hundreds, of trivial changes. We appreciate your prolific contributions, we really do. But there's no need to add a few dozen characters to a page, save, edit and add another few dozen characters, save, edit and add yet another few dozen characters, over and over again. If you have to see what your edit looks like, please please please use the preview button. That shows you the page and leaves you in the editor. There is no need for you to repeatedly save tiny edits and edit again.

So this is fair warning: because of your edit habits, we will shortly be turning on a flood control setting that will limit how often a user can save changes. Get in the habit of using the preview button, and you won't even notice it.

Okay, I'll remember to use the preview button. Thank you for reminding me.

You're welcome, and thank you.

Latest video from Appabend.

Ecclytennysmithylove (talkcontribs)


.........For the past four years, we've been voicing our concern on ethics in video game journalism, hence the creation of #Gamergate. And with this what Appabend just read... let's call it an "article", I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO FUCKING START! So trust me when I say this "article" from Polygon WILL BREAK YOU!

.........It's an article with far-left propaganda. ......It's an entire article made up entirely of FAR-LEFT PROPAGANDA!

About that run-in sentences advice...

Lequinni (talkcontribs)

The one who wrote that run-in sentece in the YMMV on Undertale wasn't me, but Tad Cipher. Still, I should have caught in and edit it.

Ecclytennysmithylove (talkcontribs)

Oh, okay. Thank you for informing me.

Please use the magicwords PAGENAME, ROOTPAGENAME, and SUBPAGENAME in page categories

Robkelk (talkcontribs)

Hi! I reverted your change to Rush'n Attack because you changed "Category:{ {PAGENAME} }" (without the spaces) to "Category:Rush'n Attack". This is a bad thing, please don't do it.

As to why it's a bad thing:

Let's imagine that Alice makes a page for the CBC Summer Replacement Show "Back in Time for Dinner" and punctuates the name "Back, in Time for Dinner". She adds the category "Back, in Time for Dinner" to the page.

Bob notices that's the wrong punctuation, moves the page to "Back in Time, for Dinner", and adds the category "Back in Time, for Dinner" to the page.

Carol notices the page, moves it to its correct punctuation "Back in Time for Dinner", and adds the category "Back in Time for Dinner" to the page.

The page now has three categories, two of which are redundant. Somebody needs to clean up the page.

If, instead, Alice had added the category "{ {PAGENAME} }" without the spaces, then the page category would have changed automatically each time the page was moved, and it would never have had the duplicate and triplicate categories.

As for the particular magicwords: PAGENAME inserts the name of the page; ROOTPAGENAME inserts the partial name of the page up but not including the first slash, and SUBPAGENAME inserts the partial name of the page beginning immediately after the final slash and continuing to the end of the name.

For example, consider the page Avatar (film)/Headscratchers/Navi

  • PAGENAME = Avatar (film)/Headscratchers/Navi
  • ROOTPAGENAME = Avatar (film)

My apologies. I'll stop doing that from now on.

British vs. American spelling

Looney Toons (talkcontribs)

Hi! Glad to see you're back! I just wanted to comment on something I noticed in your recent changes to Hollyoaks -- I saw that you had converted a few British spellings to American. You don't need to do that -- we're rather ecumenical about spellings from both sides of the Atlantic, and we'd rather not have people "correcting" each other back and forth. If you see a British spelling -- especially in an article about a British work, like Hollyoaks -- just let it be. You haven't done anything wrong, per se, but it's more work for you that really doesn't serve a purpose, okay?
