Continued from Made of Win Archive: Early 2010.


Tech Powah: To Beta Ray for suggesting Jack from MadWorld as a special racer for Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing. You deserve this blood-coated Made of Win point.

Mr Death: Dude, this is the archive. Put new entries at TV Tropes Made of Win Archive.


Farmelle: To Kenny666, I think; at least, whoever made the article on 'Superhjältejul', pretty much in one sitting. I mean, hell. It was one advent calendar. Not many people outside of Sweden (if any) must have known of its existance, and even of those who did, not many of them seemed to like it. Then, I found that someone liked it enough to make a TV Tropes page. I...I love you, guy.

    • Just found this page - that'd be me, and why, thank you! I'd strongly doubt myself that anyone outside of Sweden cares about it, too. Seeing as how TVTropes Has Ruined My Life, I couldn't help but notice all those tropes while watching it, and figured why the hell not. Even though my reason for watching it in the first place was Shaped Like Itself - I wouldn't watch it if I didn't have the actual calendar, but I wouldn't get the calendar if I didn't plan to watch it. It was mostly a spur-of-the-moment decision when I saw the calendar at ICA.

Aspie: To Lightblade, for adding a link to the edit I made in the Beach Episode page. Thank you for that, I honestly did not know there was a name for the thing I was describing.


User:Yarrunmace: To whoever made this awesome comeback to this Hannibal Lecture on the Twilight Just Bugs Me page

  • So you guys hate Twilight so much but lemme ask you this.... why do you all know so much about it? Have you actually read the books and seen the movies? If you answered yes...then Guess who wins? That's right...Stephanie Meyer and her publishers. And the film crew. Because guess what? For all you know, they're trying on purpose to write something because for some odd reason, you all buy the books, read the books, buy the movies, and see the movies. And you did just what they wanted...Congratulations.
    • Let's see: borrowing the books off a friend? Zero dollars. Watching the film on an international flight I would have gone on anyway? Zero dollars. Getting to throw it in the face of "fans" who don't know as much as me and getting to have valid arguments for why the series sucks? Priceless. :)

thatother 1 dude: The For Science! article mentioning "Contrast For The Liberal Arts!"


Inkblot: One for the conversation here, referring to Demyx of Kingdom Hearts:

  • Why the f** k do they continue to say he's weak in the journals in stuff? I beat frickin SAIX more easily than that guy!
    • I beat fricking XEMNAS' more easily than that guy!
    • I beat frickin SEPHIROTH more easily than that guy!
      • Okay...I didn't...but you get the idea.

Newtonthenewt: Whoever made/found this. I couldn't find what I was looking for. You found it and a Lolcat. This is the happiest I have ever been to see a LOLcat. Congratulations.

Citizen: A classic lolcat--nothing that can be attributed to the contributors here--and what came to mind when I ran across ~If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten~. Didn't know it was already uploaded.


Specialist 290: One for whoever made the typo of protecting "Einstein's lap" in the Red Alert 2 entry under Sequence Breaking. It's probably unintentional, but it's hilarious.


Anonymous Mc Cartneyfan: One TV Tropes Made of Win Archive point to Starship Troper for correcting the lyrics to "MacArthur Park" in the Narm/Music entry. Everyone knows the chorus, but the verses are just as good (or bad); I had just misremembered a few of them.


Dark Hunter: One MOW point to mato_hibiki for this entry on Rebuild of Evangelion:

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome - See Big Damn Heroes. Shinji is like a Panda in this brave new world. And what do Pandas do? They look sad... Right up until you piss them off, and they start Shooting Frickin' Laser Beams out of their eyes, and RIP YOU APART with their BARE HANDS! Do NOT make Shinji a sad Panda. You wouldn't like him when he's a sad Panda.

macroscopic: A point to whoever named Rouge Angles of Satin (checked the archives; they have one already but I don't know who it was) and another to alliterator for the image caption:

Cquote1

 Top: A cute angel. Bottom: Acute angle. If you can't tell the difference, you're being obtuse.

Cquote2

Niel Jacoby: Seconded on the name, but I'd like the second one more if the little cherub thingy was replaced by the smoking angel baby from 1984. In other news, I'm off to make a page for Van Halen.


Cukeman: Wouldn't be surprised if this has been nominated before, but a MOW to the person responsible for the following on Metal Gear:

Cquote1

 "The raven on my head thirsts for blood!"

Cquote2
Cquote1
Cquote2

vicnog: A collective MOW for everyone who contributed to the Statue of Liberty entry on the Green-Skinned Space Babe page. Truly hilarious.


Unknown Troper: A hearty MOW to whoever authored the Running Gag about Ron Howard on the page for Cinderella Man. I was truly tickled!

Cat 22: Wow, my first Free Hug! I humbly accept.


Peteman would like to nominate the the zinger from the The Girl Who Lived page:

  • Stealth Parody - Some people think the series is an elaborate troll due to it being so over the top and the author's flat out denial that Rose is bisexual or a Mary Sue.
    • A very in-depth Stealth Parody, then, because while My Immortal was so obviously trolling that anyone who'd read the books would have known it was a mockery, this reads like an actual work by someone with power fantasies and no skill. Kind of like a poorly-written Eragon with sex.
    • Isn't that redundant?
    • Of course not. Eragon has no sex.

thatother 1 dude: That joke sucks (could that be any more DERP?), and that natter sucks. Also, you forgot the FanFic/ part of the link.

tennessean: Added in the "FanFic/" part.


Thinks Too Much would like to request one for those responsible for the potholing and second and third bullets on the following (From The European Carry All page.)


vicnog: NeoSilverThorn, I grant you a MOW for this gem in the Inspector Gadget page:

    • Well, speaking of those gadgets...where exactly do they fit? With that Gadget Copter, what's inside his head?!



Nohbody: The page history for Galaxy Quest doesn't go back far enough to identify the guilty responsible parties, but IMO this exchange on that page deserves some MoW love, for whichever tropers were involved (specifically, the two lines under the trope entry itself, which is provided for context):

(I searched all of the MoW archive pages for "galaxy", and didn't see anything. Apologies if I just missed it already mentioned elsewhere.)


Looney Toons: A point to whoever came up with the caption for the illo on Unwilling Suspension. And a point to whoever came up with the Incredibly Lame Pun in the text next to it.

Shay Guy: Okay, that's funny, but I'm starting to consider making an "Actually Half Decent Pun" page for potholing purposes.

Haven: You know that's why we originally made the Incredibly Lame Pun page, right?

Syckls: It's really discouraging to see so many good jokes/bad puns undermined by that pothole. It's not quite Don't Explain the Joke level, but really, humor is an art of subtlety. Don't people understand that by telling us that they're making a joke, they indeed hobble it, eviscerating the very purpose that led to its creation? How many innocent laughs have been cut down before they could be born and bring joy into this world? Truly that pothole is a pox upon all those who stand for humor in this fair domain.

Shay Guy: Of course I know why. I made the damn thing. (Mind you, it's still an improvement over when people were using Incredibly Lazy Pun for the same reason.)

Haven: Sorry! I just keep seeing the argument "Incredibly Lame Pun does not mean that" pop up on this page. Now that I understand what you're saying, Actually Half Decent Pun would be a good redirect or something.

Muninn: Wouldn't making "Actually Half Decent Pun" a redirect to Incredibly Lame Pun imply that all puns are lame? I approve!

Dragon Quest Z: I made the caption. As for ILP, it's suppoed to be "this pun is dumb, and feel free to groan over it", which is what a proper or accidental use is.

Specialist 290: Furthermore, a lot of times, the "Incredibly Lame Pun" pothole is added after the fact by a third party, not by the original editor of the statement. (I know this from firsthand experience on both sides...)


Mike Rosoft: Another one for:

Cquote1

 If you don't get a warm and fuzzy feeling inside from it, then you should stop lurking on Sugar Wiki and switch to Darth Wiki.

Cquote2

Shay Guy: This very clever bit on the Large Hadron Collider:

Cquote1

 1. According to all known science, it will not destroy the world.

2. If it goes as planned, all known science will be changed.

Cquote2

ROBRAM 89: The internet (particularly this wiki) seems to have a pretty lax policy of stealing from them (come to think of it, so do radio stations and Graham Norton apparently) but that is taken nearly verbatim from a Cracked article.

Shay Guy: Oh. >_<

ROBRAM 89: It is, however, hilarious.

Shay Guy: Well, half a point to S Peter Davis for writing that article and half a point to the Unknown Troper who paraphrased it. On a related note, who keeps removing MOW-ed comments from articles?

Looney Toons: Someone who's never gotten a MOW point, I suspect.

ROBRAM 89: The Hamburgler.

Schrau: Mo W for Robram please.


batfan: To whoever added this line to the Death Note Character Sheet about Soichiro Yagami:

Jordan: Oh. I've read that page several times and that never hit me until now. Pretty clever.


Seanette: Jordan, for this lovely snark in Ask the Tropers, referring to an editor with an attitude:
Jordan: He's a GIFT to this wiki.


Be: I have no idea who included Frankie Boyle's joke in the Crowning Moment of Awesome section of the Mock the Week page (saying that, it may even have been me), but a MOW point to whoever took the time to include pot holes for each of the characters listed. And a second one for pot holing Phil Neville (Phil Neville?!) to Token Evil Teammate. Good show, sir or madam.

Real Slim Shadowen: Wasn't me, sadly, but can I claim half a point for doing it first on the Mind Screw page (now in the Mind Screw quotes page), even if I omitted Phil Neville? :p

Be: I'm afraid not. I'd LIKE to dish out the points like they were unnecessarily hot pancakes and I were working at some kind of breakfast-type soup kitchen (...you heard) but Phil Neville makes it what it is.


Aminatep: A couple to the Trope Namer for Abusing the Kardashev Scale For Fun and Profit.


User:Yarrunmace: One to Schizo Technician for correcting an error I made while creating the Playing with Wiki Sesquipedalian Smith page 2 minutes after I finished it.

Schizo Technician: Thank you, you're too kind. Anything to avoid doing the paper I should be writing!


Mike Rosoft: Here's one to whoever came with:

Cquote1

 This isn?t just IKEA Erotica, it?s IKEA Erotica that didn?t follow the assembly instructions.

Cquote2

tennessean: Uh...which article was this line from?

thatother 1 dude: IKEA Erotica.


Beemoh: One to the "random item" button, which managed to segue me from William Shatner to Planescape: Torment. And the pictures therein.

Hydro Globus: That must have been TAS' doing... somehow. Though it really doesn't fit in Ad of Win...

T-Jack: What, the TV Tropes website is getting MOW points now? Has it become self-aware or something?

TV Tropes (Wiki): I must thank The Advertisement Server for the upgrade.

A Mere Servant Of God: And with that, the curtain closes, everyone starts screaming, and Beethoven's Ninth begins to play.


Curtmack: History doesn't show who did it, but one to whoever added the Google results to the beginning of Borderlands.


Sal Fish Fin: this quote from Love Hotels: "And unlike America, you likely don't own a car and only advanced, highly acrobatic positions tend to be possible on a bicycle, even with the kickstand down. "


Insanity Prelude: Everyone responsible for Playing With Eats Babies. I lol'd.

thatother 1 dude: Second, plus whoever made Playing with Wiki from that thread I started forever ago then gave literally zero contribution to.

Hydro Globus: And one to you too. Feel yourself proud, this is the first MOW I handed out.

Luc: I'll accept the Mo W point for creating the Playing with Wiki. Thanks to That Other 1 Dude for giving me the idea, and to Meta Four for creating the direct inspiration, the Haiku Wiki.


Cidolfas: A belated MOW to whichever (probably more than one) troper came up with the title for The Thing That Goes Doink, along with this paragraph:

Not to be confused with the thing that goes parp, the thing that goes ding when there's stuff, the scientific progress that goes boink, the machine that goes ping, the thing that goes bong bong, the man who goes BONK, The Knights Who Say Ni! or Tonberries.

I have no idea why the title is so funny to me, but it is, oh so much.

Looney Toons: The page creator and namer was Bluetooth The Pirate, whom I haven't seen around the wiki in a long time.

Computer Sherpa: Ahaha, it's still getting longer. Seconded!


SAMAS: A MOW to whoever put this in Post Cyber Punk:

Cyberpunk is not quite dead. It's just pining for the fnords.


Malchus: A MOW to 71.228.27.142 for making a page for My Dad the Rock Star. I've been waiting to see it up. Still in need of some Wiki Magic, but i love it all the same.


Master TMO: I should have done this long ago, but a MoW to the person who took the formatting of the Bigger Is Better page and made it into a Self-Demonstrating Article.


Rothul: This exchange from Anticlimax Boss. Yeah, it's an Incredibly Lame Pun, but it made me smile.


ROBRAM 89: The use of Hogarth's Gin Lane as the picture for Wretched Hive gets a point. So perfect.

Madrugada: Thank you!


Cryptic Mirror: Would the people responsible for the picture and captioning on Van Helsing Hate Crimes please step forward for your hug coupons and MoW. Thank you.


Doom Filled Doom: A belated MOW to whoever alphabetized the entire anime examples lists for Foe Yay and Ho Yay. It's much easier to find a series on those pages now.

Willy Four Eyes: Chaotic Dreams, crack a brew, because you'd just earned your very first (maybe) Win point! [hugs]


Mad propz to Stealthyboy for creating a page for Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff, the mad bastard. :D


Zephid: A MOW to whoever Rhiow for the Real Life folder in Yangire.


sgrunt: Whoever's responsible for Call to Adventure in its entirety, for deftly weaving together an analogy which manages to Pothole essentialy all of the tropes listed at the end.

Silent Hunter: Very good work.


Earnest: This tidbit from Now and Then Here and There:


Riti Troll: May have already gotten it, might be several people, but I award one made of win to the person(s) who write (OF COURSE!) whenever taking over the world is mentioned. Or at least attempting it or die trying.

Unknown Troper: Belated beyond belief, but I hope I'm not the only one who is finding that incredibly obnoxious. :/


Seanette: Belated MOW to the kindly soul who supplied the pronunciation for Deus Ex Machina.


thatother 1 dude: The opening quote for Nerf Arm.


Freezair For A Limited Time: One serious lawl for whoever is responsible for the Hurricane of Puns hottip on Zombie Gait. Especially Theoretical Physicist Zombie.


Nate The Great: To Wretchkin for finding the current page image for Non-Indicative Name. Why is it called a fountain pen gun if it's neither?

Grev: Well, it is a gun; it just doesn't shoot bullets. And it's kept in his shirt pocket like a fountain pen (and it looks like a fountain pen), so...


Dmysta 3000: This image quote for the current Freud Was Right page image definitely gets my vote. That was the funniest thing I've read all week.


Katsuhagi: The Laconic entry for American Kirby Is Hardcore. This also gets my nomination for best use of the Laconic ever:

  • Boxart:
    • Japan: ^(^_^)^
    • USA: v(\_/)^

Deuxhero:I did the original idea, others improved the smilelys used.


Solarn: Whoever created the "We Have No Idea What Side this Guy Is On" folder for Kurt Godel on the Negima character page.

Japanese Teeth: Thank you. I figured he was important enough to merit an entry on the page, but he didn't fit in any of the categories, so....


Katsuhagi: Whoever put this exchange in the Kanye West article. I lol'ed for a good minute.

  • Written In Infirmity: His first hit "Through the Wire" was written while in the hospital after a car accident and recorded while his jaw was still wired shut.
    • You'd think this would be everyone's first clue that you can't shut him up.

Gemmifer: The picture for Wangst is awesomely wangsty. The snot-crying! The nobody-understands!


Luthen: One to Earnest, I'm definitely saving up to move to Auda City.

Thatother 1 dude: To spear spare anyone else the need to search, I believe he's talking about something in the article Sliding Scale of Comedy and Horror.

Earnest: Thanks! You're both welcome to visit my summer home in Auda City, it has all the creature comforts, including an Exploding Barrel barbecue pit. ~_^

Luthen: Sorry, I thought I put that in. Spare me the spear please!


Kizor: The person behind the categories in the Improbable Piloting Skills article. It's deeper than more thorough than one'd think the subject could be, and well-written to boot!


pelagica: Mo W to anyone who put up that picture & caption on Zerg Rush. "ROFLMAO" was an automated response that my brain promptly sent to my mouth.

Rhainor: So very, very seconded.


Tofu: One Mo W for Mijihal and Glenn Magus Harvey for the whole conversation here.

thatother 1 dude: Take It to the Forums (Made of Win page).


Wascally Wabbit: Whoever put the category 'Mental Rape of Men by Hive-Minded Cyborg Societies' in the Rape as Redemption article can award themselves a coconut on the way back from Crossing the Line Twice.


Sal Fish Fin: To everyone who contributed to the Real Life section of Humans Are Cthulhu

Haven: "So I look like a corpse?" "Given that Most Tropers Are Young Nerds this goes without saying." Haha...seconded.


A TV Tropes Made of Win Archive to everyone who contributed to Sean Connery Is About to Shoot You, especially the Lord of the Rings and Bad Boys examples.

Malchus: Sean Connery Is About to Shoot You has already been colectively MOW'd before. However, since that one was made before I added the Bad Boys examples, then I gladly accept and thank thee for the MOW.


Mr Death: A TV Tropes Made of Win Archive to the troper whose name is lost to time that added the last line of this exchange in Sword of Truth:

  • Ensemble Darkhorse - Gratch is awesome, which is sad because he's absent from the later books. Or maybe fortunate that he doesn't get caught up in the Author Tract.
    • Could you imagine what an Author Filibuster by Gratch would read like?
      • Gratch luuug Raaachaarg, Gratch haaate sooocialism.

Arutema: Props to the team that made "Giant Enemy Crab, Attack Its Weak Point For Massive Damage" a All Blue Me Me.

sgrunt: I handled the relaunch of For Massive Damage even if I didn't launch the YKTTW... do I qualify? :p

Deux Hero: I created Giant Enemy Crab's YKTTW and I think I launched it. I didn't intended for the all blue meme though.


The Toon Geekette: One to whoever added this extremely in-character entry for Chester A. Bum's section in the Fetish Fuel page for That Guy With The Glasses:

    • HELLO?! ARE PEOPLE LUSTING AFTER ME ON THE INTERMANET? I thought I was lusting after someone for a while, but she turned out to be a peice of toast. A male piece of toast. ...CHAAANGE?!

Tal 9922- One made of win to whoever is responsible for this lovely edit from the Dexter page:

  • Feed Me: Miguel, especially on the rooftop. And it is awesome.
    • This troper disagr--
      • WELL THEN FUCK YOU!

Japanese Teeth: Another very meta TV Tropes Made of Win Archive for everybody who made a dick joke in the 3rd entry below this one. I'm sure you all thought long and hard about coming up with something.

Real Slim Shadowen: Fine, I'll take it, but if this becomes a pattern I'm sure someone will complain it's indecent.

Rothul: This is indecent!

Shadow Of The Sun: Just as a means of discouraging this...one negative made of win to everyone who continues this trend on.

And two negative wins for me for startin' the whole damn thing.

Haven: You know...if someone were feeling really contrary, they would make the next one two Made of Wins. I agree with you, I'm just sayin'.

Sceboal: Since when can you give negative made of wins? I mean, it's not like I can say that every time you get a made of win, I get to sleep with your girlfriend, right?

Shadow Of The Sun: I can since I decided I wanted too. As for the girlfriend, well, I hope you like dry humping in mid-air.


szaleniec: This comment on Het Is Ew:

Syckls: It's okay. However, I think I'd like to repeat the sentiment stated earlier on this page that you don't need to pothole every joke you make with needless self-deprecation.


Outta The BLAM: Whoever wrote this on the Narm/Code Geass page.

This. What the hell Lelouch? If I may... FABULOUS! (Imagine, if you will, in Dan Green 's voice): After a long day of taking over the world, nothing refreshes me more than pouring cool, Aquafina-brand water all over me. Yes, look at that water dribble down all over my CLAMP-designed bishonen body! Have you had enough, fangirls, or do you want MORE?! Aquafina is the only brand of water I trust not to be poisoned by jealous nobles who like to drop carriages on imperial consorts! Aquafina: Because pouring Gatorade on your body is too much of a mess (and way too titillating for the fangirls)!


Shadowofthe Sun: One very meta Made of Win for all the folks who made a boob pun two entries below this one. One and a half to Real Slim Shadowen for his phallusy.

JK Roo: My first Win point! And don't worry, Shadowen, I hear it happens to a lot of guys.

Real Slim Shadowen: Hey, I got half again as much as the rest of you; I'm just peachy.

Rothul: Aren't you getting kind of cocky there?

jtmmachine: Yeah, that was kind of a dick move back there...

Haven: Right, shouldn't let it go to your head.

CAD: Wow, I can't think of a good pun to contribute to this. This is pretty stiff competition.

JK Roo: It's okay, CAD. And as hard as it may be for me, I retract the insult. After all, we're equal members of this wiki!

Sceboal: This is some nice wit you guys have.

Shadow Of The Sun: ...I'm contemplating revoking your win points, but I fear that will be too...emasculating? I don't want to make you guys feel impotent.

JK Roo: I'm very sorry about the load of puns. Just, please, don't give us the shaft! I could go on, but I won't.

pagad: Boobies.

Be: Ahaha, I get it because penises are funny and puns are funny. Funny.

Spidey3000: Ah, no need to...um...stick your...screw it. I can't think of another penis-related pun to add that haven't been done; the humor's all dryed up. Oh well, at least I got a rise out of it.


Doug S. Machina: This from Wicked Cultured:

...he is actually defeated by his lack of knowledge of pop culture. Not "as a consequence of"; By. After failing to name the singer who had a hit with "I Should Be So Lucky", his head explodes. Or, if you prefer, goes pop.


alliterator: Huge tracts of win to whoever made Keep Abreast of This Index.

Cat 22: Credit should go to Draqon Quest Z. I was quite titillated when he suggested it.

jtmmachine: That index just keeps racking up tropes!

Sceboal: I must've tittered at it so much.

SAMAS: Geez, what a bunch of boobs...

Beemoh: At least you got it off your chest.

T-Jack: Oh, come on, guys, tits just an index.

Rothul: Let's not be so quick to jugs.

Shale: Why did it take so long to make? There was always ample support for such an index, and a firm list of tropes to add.

JK Roo: This ought to make any other attempts at bad jokes a bust. An incredibly large one at that.

Mr Death: Just had to nipple that in the bud, huh?

Haven: Mammary joke!

Janitor: Okay. Have we milked this enough, yet?

Real Slim Shadowen: Nope! Penis.

Be: Hahaha, I get it! Breasts are funny!


Haven: To the UT at 190.80.241.98 for this amazing Incredibly Lame Pun in Understatement:

  • Code Geass has Nunnally become a master of understatement with "In the past, unfortunate happenings took place inside the Special Administrative Region of Japan." "Unfortunate happenings" meaning genocide.

Shay Guy: ...That's not lame. Potholes don't need to be used to say "Look! Look! See? See what I did? I made a funny!"

Mr Death: I don't get it.

Haven: It's a Code Geass joke; the character who initiated said "unfortunate happenings" is named Euphemia.



ROBRAM 89: One for the absolutely hilarious Pothole to Gilligan Cut on the page for, of all things, Grover Cleveland. You can't read it without picturing it.


Enlong: One to whoever took note the large number of alternate titles for the page, and added This Is For Redirects Bitch as the newest one. Lampshade Hanging in the form of an alternate titles. I love it!

Citizen: Haha, that was me.

Thinks Too Much admits that's amusing, but thinks we seriously need to remove some of those endless redirects, not add some.

Haven: Why?


Page history's lost the one responsible ("all edits," my ass), but somebody's got to give a MOW to the ones responsible for the jokey summation of Noein in Future Me Scares Me, Incredibly Lame Puns and all:

  • So, three Yuus walk into a bar
    • But the bartender didn't quantum to be there
      • And the bartender asks them if they want beer, but they say Noein
        • * rimshot*

Haven: One for whoever came up with this incredibly lame, yet still rather sophisticated, pun in the comic book Shout-Out page (context included for clarity):

  • There's a lovely and rather subtle one in issue 16 of Grant Morrison's "Animal Man", where "quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" ("Who Watches The Watchmen?", in Latin) is graffiti-ed on a toilet wall.
    • That couldn't be moore juvenal.

Earnest: I'd like to thank Willy Four Eyes for catching a mistake I made in In the End You Are on Your Own. I accidentally put The Longest Journey as a Film because I confused it with Homeward Bound. I would also like to give him a MOW point for assuming I was actually being clever by putting this in the Edit Reason space:

Cquote1

 Wait, but The Longest Journey is...Oh, I see what you did there...

Cquote2

Willy Four Eyes: Hee hee...thanks. I kinda feel bad about the edit reason, though, as I haven't played enough of The Longest Journey to figure out how long its cutscenes are.

User:Koveras: Actually, TLJ is not cutscene-heavy at all (unlike Dreamfall) but I assumed you meant that the the epic plot of the game completely overshadows a high-quality but otherwise pretty standard point-and-click gameplay...


Zander Schubert: Whoever linked "Necromancer Solves Case" on the Essential Third Act Twists page to Pushing Daisies.


Eddie Current: Please join me in presenting Infinix with this TV Tropes Made of Win Archive, for all the Awesome he's brought to the Super Sentai pages lately. Including making the rest of us look good. Bravo, good sir!


Nate The Great: To whoever added the subtle The Princess Bride joke to the Bible It Just Bugs Me. "This was after grounding had been invented, but before time-outs." At least I assume this was a subtle The Princess Bride joke.


Medinoc: To Citizen, for the picture name in the Homosexual Reproduction page.

Shay Guy: He does have a knack for those, doesn't he?


The Painted Maypole: One TV Tropes Made of Win Archive to whoever made this contribution to Beard of Sorrow:

Moulin Rouge opens with a grieving bearded Christian. No, not that one.


BritBllt: I feel kind of guilty, getting a TV Tropes Made of Win Archive when Anonymous Mc Cartneyfan has spent the past month on cleaning up and fixing all the errors on the main Unwinnable page. He's pretty much single-handedly adopted the page and remade it with win, so he has my vote. :)

Anonymous Mc Cartneyfan: Thanks!


Doug S. Machina: I liked the meta twist in It Was His Sled.

Also, from the Suzumiya Haruhi page: Perverse Sexual Lust ? Search your feelings, you know it to be true.


sgrunt: to Tsunde Ray for the stinger on Nethack, which brought a grin to this NetHacker's face...


Japanese Teeth: A Mo W for whoever did the (current) caption at Bodyguard Crush. I've seen at least 3 different captions there, so this one cracked me up. For posterity's sake, it currently reads Trust me, next time you come to this page, the pun will have changed.

Shale: And it has.


Cryptic Mirror: A Mo W for whoever came up with the stinger at the very end of the Doctor Who High Octane Nightmare Fuel page...

Tangent 128: Seconded.

tennessean: I potholed it so that other people can easily access the page from here.


Silent Hunter: Whoever had the idea for The Universal Genre Savvy Guide.

Dragon Quest Z: Me, although it was inspired by all the varied lists.


Excel-2009. I thought the entry for Stupid Jetpack Hitler in You Have to Burn The Rope was pretty funny, if only tangentially related.

Drac Monster: Thank you. We will get EVERY DAMN TROPE on that page eventually, I swear it!


nomuru2d: I nominate whoever put up the picture for The Emperor on the Dissidia Characters page. I laughed long and hard.

JK Roo: Seconded. Oh, so very very seconded.

Japanese Teeth: Thirded. I burst out laughing when I saw that.


Enlong: Whoever came up with the banner put at the top of Subjective Tropes. Captures the idea of subjective pretty danged well.

Silent Hunter: Seconded.

Rothul: And the Alt Text is now a lot better too!

Anonymous Mc Cartneyfan: Thirded. I like the "surrender" body language.


merton: everyone on The Bible 's page, for their steadfast insistance in putting spoiler tags around the fact that Jesus dies.

Citizen: A true case of You Should Know This Already (ya rly), but I'm not going to play that game.


Silent Hunter: Razgriz 2K9, for his pictures in Mnogo Nukes.


Lale: This answer to why Carl didn't get busted by the FAA for flying a house down the street in Up: "Hello, is this the FAA? Yeah, there's this guy flying in a house. Yes, he's attached his house to a million balloons and he's just flying it down the... hello? Hello?" Crowning Moment of Funny! I was practically rotfl! They should have included that in the actual movie!


Haven: Fifth_Rider for the Sartre quote at the top of the Neon Genesis Evangelion page. That's just perfect.


Enlong: So I was reading through You Make Me Sic, and when I reached the bottom, I saw the Poor Communication Kills index nav-bar. One of the links on that nav-bar was simply Lelouch. One MOW to whoever set that up.

St Fan: Nobody set it up. This is purely a problem with the automated indexing. Every link following the index list on the page will be used as the next index entry if it's just after the bullet point. Only way to avoid this is to eliminate the links at the beginning of the examples entries in the Poor Communication Kills page.

Pykrete: So basically the MOW goes to some quite deserving ghost data?

The Advertisement Server: WOULDN'T BE THE FIRST TIME, MEAT-SACK.


Freezer: Mo W - with a side of "I see what you did there" to Mason for this Author's Saving Throw entry"


Deuxhero:Whoever (unknown, IP adress is 67.66.201.215) wrote the Getting Crap Past the Radar Bullet point before Groin Attack on House.


Cidolfas: For Rothul, for coming up with the YKTTW for "One Letter Title", all in poetry. It's not even a trope yet, but it's brilliant!

Rothul: Thank you! It has since been launched as One-Letter Title. Anyone better with meter than I, feel free to revise!

alliterator: Oh man, that is so awesome. It even inspired me to write the entry for Z.


thatother 1 dude: OK, it might not be exactly a joke, but I can't stop laughing at this entry of Mills and Boon Prose:

  • Nasuverse sex scenes are commonly a mild form of this (more so in Tsukihime than the later Fate/stay night). Oddly, they're also written in first-person perspective...

If I ever read any Nasuverse visual novels I hope it's not as hilarious sounding as the image that gives me in my head.

bluepenguin: I don't know how hilarious your mental image is, but Nasu's sex scenes are definitely more funny than sexy (in most people's opinion).


Paradoxic Title: To alcatrazz, for his hilarious comment under the Demonic Spiders - Real Life section. Someone made a comment about how humans qualified (mainly because they killed so many animals). His response:

"Since when do we let woodland animals edit pages?"

I lol'd.


Tal 9922: To the genius that came up with the corresponding image/caption for the Mama Bear and Papa Wolf pages, your Mo W is long overdue (even assuming the change is recent). Seriously, try switching between the two pages consecutively.

Medinoc: Wow. Seconding that, too. However, wasn't the Cable picture intentional?

Madrugada Pretty much. ccoa is the one responsible for the pair of them.


Sonic GTR A MOW to whoever drew and/or uploaded the picture for Hitbox Dissonance. This fan of both Touhou and Suzumiya Haruhi almost needed a new keyboard when he first saw it.

Medinoc: Seconded. Also, what is this pic from?

Citizen: Looks like a Touhou sketch someone pulled off of Deviantart.


sgrunt: to Leigh Sabio for the Laconic entries for Fan Boy and Fan Girl; admittedly not the most laconic but still apt.


vicnog: I don't know whether this comment in the Lamarck Was Right page or the response to it is funnier:

A MOW to both tropers. Cheers!


Grimace: A shiny MOW to schism, for this entry in The Happening, purely by virtue of the enthusiasm displayed in the entry just made me crack right up.

  • So, the environment is both murderous and incapable of reason? Sounds like a job for FIRE.

Haven: So very seconded.


Curtmack: One bright sunshiney Made Of Win to whoever put "I Have Many Names" under Aelita Lyoko Hopper Schaeffer Stones (I think) on the character sheet for Code Lyoko.

St Fan: That would be me. ^_^ Didn't do it for the lolz, though, just thought it was fitting.


Enlong: To Turrican for the inspired pun that is the Laconic entry for Sonic the Hedgehog 2006

Sonic rushed.


Spiri Tsunami: To LE Xicon, for the awesome self-demonstrating page for Michael McConnohie. Doesn't break character once.

thatother 1 dude: I believe I actually nominated that a couple months ago (no one responded though).


Dark: One to Tunod for the rather clever Stealth Pun for the Chekov's Gun entry on the Star Trek movie page.


thatother 1 dude: One to whoever is responsible for the Running Gag on the Batman the Brave And The Bold page about AQUAMAN.


Be: Indicating that you can find diamonds in dog turds, this entry in Non Existent Fiction Recommendations:

  • Atlas Shrugged: The Musical. The showstopper halfway through the third act must be seen to be believed.

I'd pay to see it, that's all I know. (Not saying that NEFR is a dog turd, saying that Atlas Shrugged is a dog turd. K? K)


Grev: Whoever had the bad fishing experience 'round these parts gets one for Fishing for Sole:

Several false alarms and several boots later, you start to wonder. Why are there so many boots? Fish don't wear boots, hell, they don't even have feet. Yet there seems to be more boots in the water than there are fish. And it's not just boots, either. Spare tires, tin cans, other useless junk... why does it seem like you're fishing in Lake Erie?

Specialist 290: I would like to second that nomination on the basis of it being one of the lamest (and thus most awesome) puns ever.


sgrunt: to rjung for the picture on Paranoia. Remember, citizens, happiness is mandatory!


K: Whoever added this to the Animorphs page gets one, because it makes me laugh every time I see it.

Star-Crossed Lovers: She's a beautiful, smart, independant, funny and spirited suburban teenage hottie. He is a fucking bird.

Grimace: I can't help but read that as an advert for a damn Rob Schneider movie. (still awesome though).


Ronnie: One to whoever put this gem on Warp That Aesop:

  • Monsters Inc.: The monsters in your closet just work for a federal utility company, so in essence, they are bureaucrats. All the more reason to be afraid of them.

thatother 1 dude: This section of the TV Tropes Drinking Game (specifically the end):

  • Take two sips if This Troper relates how shocked, SHOCKED, they are that an example from their favorite series hasn't already been added.
    • Take three sips if This Troper was right to expect said example to be mentioned sooner.
    • Finish the bottle if said example has been mentioned already.
    • Two bottles if you were the one to add the example and forgot about it.
    • Three if has been mentioned before and the reason it's not there anymore was because it wasn't a real example.
    • Four if you haven't yet died of alcohol poisoning.
      • For the personal safety of those who actually want to try this drinking game, change "bottle" in the above four steps to "glass". And for that matter, omit the last one entirely.

Antheia: A MoW point to rjung for the Strange Syntax Speaker article. I didn't even realize what was odd about the text until I was halfway through or so, I just felt there was... something. That's a sign of serious writing skills.

Pykrete: Holy hell. It took me a while to notice what was going on there when I was looking for it. Very subtle, but elegant.

Shay Guy: It's right in the first paragraph.

A Mere Servant Of God: O RLY?

Radical Taoist: Yeah, that's quite impressive. It was hard coming up with a suitable Laconic entry.

Freiberg: That takes some skill. And this comes from a guy who writes long and complicated acrostics into his history notes.


Earnest: One to vifetoile for the laconic description of Powered By a Forsaken Child. It made me lol and want to buy a Soylent Prius.

Vifetoile: Thank you! Sgrunt made a change to it, so s/he deserves some recognition, too. :-)

sgrunt: All in the interest of making a Laconic article even shorter while preserving the wit... but if it's worthy of recognition, so be it. :-)

Vifetoile: Well, no Troper is an island, sufficient unto herself. This wiki needs everyone to make it great.


DOTMW: I don't know if it's been said already but everyone who contributed their own personal stories to the Crowning Moment of Heartwarming Troper Tales page has my sincere gratitude. I am constantly inspired by the warmth and humanity displayed there that offers hope that Sweet Exists. So a MAJOR TV Tropes Made of Win Archive to everyone who shared their stories with us.


Curtmack: One to whoever came up with the designation "Always Neutral Hungry" to refer to the Tyranids.

Deux Hero:Fairly sure "Neutral Hungry" is an existing fanon D&D term for various animals who, being int<3 and are not undead (I don't know why undead are evil when they are mindless either) are forced to True Neutral alignment.


Morkais Chosen: A truly inspired reply to the comment about General Studies exams at the bottom of Author Vocabulary Calendar. I was amused but not planning to add this here... until I saw the pothole for "She got an A."

Syckls: I would just like to note that the aforementioned entry was deleted from the Author Vocabulary Calendar page eight hours after it was given a mention here. I'm not taking sides on the issue, but I felt it had to be said.

Anonymous Mc Cartneyfan: For the record (reading from the page history), the pothole for "She got an A" was The Points Mean Nothing. (No, it wasn't me.)


Ronka87: It's is pretty old by now, but I had to mention this exchange from the discussion page of Instrument of God:

Cquote1

 Krazeh Penguin: How in the world did you find out about this book?

Eric DVH: We didn't find out about it, it found out about us.

Cquote2

Mr Death: One to Wretchkin for the opening quotes to the Batman page. Cracked me up.

Wretchkin: I had to do it. 'Cause he's Batman.


Haven: One for whoever wrote the line "below is a condensed catalog of horrors that will make you doubt in the Auto Revive of Crystal Dragon Jesus" in Being Good Sucks. (Actually, that whole page is rather well-written, but that one made me lol). And, I know it's a little redundant to give Fast Eddie Made of Win points, but one to him for this snappy reply in Firefly's discussion page:

Cquote1

 Meocross: wow.... this series is only 12 freaking episodes yet i see it on almost every trope i stumble on. what is in this show? o_O

Fast Eddie: Everything good.

Cquote2

Earnest: Thank you! ^_^ Every so often I manage a nice turn of phrase like that.


Sikon: Whoever added this to Portal:

  • The Companion Cube is a pastiche of every flat, plot-irrelevant love interest character ever. It's identical to every other NPC except for a small tag that marks it as a love interest; the only relationship you have with it is informed; the structure of a level is artificially manipulated to make it unwinnable without the love interest for no given plot reason; and the only purpose it serves in the story is to turn G La DOS forcing you to "kill" it into a Rape The Dog moment for the villain.

Sparkysharps:My God...That is brilliant.


T-Jack: One to whoever added the first line in Three Plus Two. Major spoiler indeed.


Meta Four: The matching pictures and captions on Warmup Boss and Wake Up Call Boss.

Dr Namgge: I only just noticed that. Shame the Warmup Boss image is from the Beta version.

Fusion Dragon: Actually, going by the ring counter, I think it's a ROM hack.


Kalle: Oh my god, whoever potholed the entire strawberry milk speech on the Gintama page deserves serious points from me. If only because it made me burst out laughing just as hard as when I first saw it in the anime.


L: I simply approve of the MS Paint article. It's a solid piece of writing.

L: While I'm at it, I give similar approval to the Alchemy article.


GG Crono: A huge MOW to whoever added the comment on the Sealed Evil in a Can entry for Ghostbusters. :D


User:Koveras: A MOW to the author of the last line in the Gratuitous German lead-in (about the Nazis). Got me laughing really hard. :D

tennessean: I personally liked the "psychoanalysis" bit in the line immediately above that one! :D


Balesirion: To the person who made the Tabletop Games section on Gratuitous Japanese be "Teiberu Toppu Ge-mu Lagann"

Haven: I picked up an MoW for that already, but thanks!


Insanity Prelude: The chain of wicks starting from Made of Win. Maybe I'm just in a weird mood today but I lol'd.

Doug S Machina: That's me. Thank you.


Maverick Hunter 40245:

  • Narm: Gears of War 2: Dom killing Maria because she's no longer hot.

Anonymous Mc Cartneyfan: A point to BritBllt for fixing the main Unwinnable page by making new folders so the "Other Videogamea" folder would close again. Also, for naming it the "Other Videogames" folder.


WWRU: Found this in Batman: Arkham Asylum. Big thanks to every troper who joined in (with the exception of myself, obviously. That's just mean.)

Asmodemus:Yay, I was mentioned! As part of something with a group of other people but still. I added Harley Quinn.

Be: My first point! I'd like to thank the Academy, Batman, my dull-ass job and Kanye West for not interrupting my speech, you're all fantastic.

Nithael: And I'm the one responsible for the last part ("Seriously guys..."). Thanks for my first point!


Excel-2009. I want to shake the hand of whoever came up with this gem on Hot-Blooded:

  • 24's Jack Bauer would like to remind you that he's A FEDERAL AGENT!
    • And that he wants everything done... NOW!
    • ...because he is RUNNING OUT OF TIME!!!
    • DAMMIT!!!

Deuxhero:To Antwan from taking my request for formating of the Legends of the Hidden Temple page.


Kizor: My thanks to whoever spotted Atlantis Is Boring and to whoever wrote it. Both deeds are good demonstrations of the best of our ability.


Kudos to whoever chose this particular phrasing for the Magical Negro entry listed for The Shawshank Redemption. I'm glad I wasn't drinking anything:

"Red, in a way, but it's also true that Andy is Red's Magical Whitey, so to speak."

Rothul: Thank you!


alliterator:
One to Meta Four
For launching the Haiku
Wiki. Thank you lots.

Dragon Quest Z: And for the Haiku for Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Mr Death: And one MOW to Whogus The Whatsler for The Dark Knight Trilogy's Haiku. It literally made me laugh out loud. It's exactly the type of Haiku the Joker himself would write.

Deuxhero:
I added a break[1]
You'll thank me latter - Monk
I give up on[2] this.
(Isn't droping Wiki to the 3rd line cheating, eh, the hottips likely are as a well)


Grev: I'm pretty sure one's been given out for the entirety of the Real Life page (particularly the examples), but if not, here you go.

L: "Surprisingly good graphics" would have been pretty blah by itself, so I'm glad someone appended it with "for a legacy system".


Thinks Too Much: Despite never having seen Pokémon I still had to ask this for the Time Lord entry:

Ash's father is a Time Lord, his mother is Haruhi Suzumiya, and everthing takes place in instrumentality.

  • I am unrepentant.

Cliche: Oh dearest, I've never laughed as hard as I did over a Characters page as I did for the one for Dissidia Final Fantasy. To everyone who contributed the fanart, You're Winner!


Musoeun: One Mo W and free hug to whoever added this one to First-Person Smartass:

Cquote1

  Spenser is somewhat a Poor Man's Substitute for Marlowe and is often brought up as the direct inspiration for fantasy novels using this character-type. (Emphasis mine.)

Cquote2

The literature geek inside of me just about died laughing. I dearly hope that was intentional, but it's gold even if not.


Outta The BLAM: I think I need to suggest this bizarre exchange from A Date with Rosie Palms:

thatother 1 dude: We had a page for that, but now it's just a redirect to the original page.

Phartman: I don't know who blueshifted it, but I believe the potato bit was mine.


Bobby G: One to Broken Chaos, for compiling a list of every Troper who edited prior to The Great Crash, fixing a nasty copyright issue in the process.

Haven: Wow. Seconded so freaking hard.

Thirded by Outta The BLAM

Cidolfas: Fourthed!

Shay Guy: How the...wait, what copyright issue?

Broken Chaos: Thanks guys. Copyright issue was a potential situation (hopefully never an actual legal issue) where contributors to the wiki prior to The Great Crash aren't attributed in any way, which is a required part of the CC BY-SA -- the licence all content here is contributed and used under. Similar issue with the archived history (post-GC, pre-2009-07-12), but the admins have said there will be a tool for that in the (hopefully-near) future. Made o' win for 'em when that gets coded up.


alliterator: On the Zombieland page, to whoever called Zombieland the "Gurren Lagann of zombie movies." Because that is so freakin' true. Also, whoever wrote the description of the movie is awesome.

Moviepyr 0: That was me. Dude, you just totally made my week. I also created the page and description (my first ever) save for a great change of the line "hallow, shallow lives made no more meaningful by always running for their lives" to "hallow, shallow lives made no more meaningful by always running for them" courtesy of Just Call Me Ned, and everything that follows from there in the first paragraph are totally kickass additions by unknown tropers. Also, I'd like to give another shout out to Just Call Me Ned for changing the line "Zombieland is a little more concerned with turning zombies into a pulpy mess." back to my original "Zombieland is a little more concerned with knocking their fucking teeth in." as well as an unknown troper for doing the same when someone changed it again.


User:Koveras: A MOW to whoever started the Useful Notes on Conspiracy Theories entry. I've been waiting for a long time for this page. ^^

Deuxhero:I started a YKTTW requesting such, but don't think this is a result of it.


Meta Four: Whoever was responsible for the caption on Area 51.

Silent Hunter: That was me. Thanks.


Mr Death: Whoever added it has been lost to the sands of time, but I must give one out for this line in Lousy Alternate Titles:

Drgon Quest Z: That was me.


Haven: I'm not sure if this has been nominated before, but Rogue7 for his pithy reply to this line in Kavorka Man:

    • Legend has it that when Franklin returned from his post as the American ambassador to France, he was afflicted with every venereal disease known to medicine at the time.

Rogue 7: Hee! This made my night. And I've been having a good night.

herczy: Wow... just Wow


Deux Hero: One to Dolt Boy for redirecting characters/homepage to The Contributors.


G-Mon: (S)He's probably not going to see this, but one for the Unknown Troper at 83.59.144.177 for the second line of this bit in Informal Eulogy:

~8th_Pacifist~: That was me, before I got known. I'd like to thank the Academy.


Enlong: A point to whoever came up with the name for Let X Be the Unknown. Math puns rule!

alliterator: Though I created the trope, I did not launch it and give it its name. That honor belongs to Prfnoff.


Curtmack: This, on Screw the Rules I Have Plot:

  • Let's not even get started on the Seal Of Orichalcos, which would require about 5 cards worth of text space to explain the rules if was actually made.
    • That's one of the simpler cards. All of your monsters get 500 more ATK points, you get 5 extra monster spaces and the loser loses their soul.

Cassius 335: Speaking as someone who does know what a Catapult Turtle is, I must point out that it's a bit more complicated that that. Cute line, though.

Oh, and losing your soul, thankfully, is an anime-only effect. [3]

&# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608;:&# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608; &# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608;&# 9608; is better anyway, and no less serious.


Rissa: This pothole in Attractive Bent Gender:

because now I want to know what that would look like.

ROBRAM 89: Despite the fact that I come here every day just to see if I've been congratulated for anything, I'd like to point out that somebody mentioned that one already. Thanks though.

User:Koveras: Do you know this rule of the internet, Rissa? If there is a male character out there, there is a gender-bent version of him, no exceptions. So... meet Odine and Toruko, original concept by yours truly, drawn by a close friend of mine. ^^

wllw: "Your browser is trying to contact an Internet site that is used in connection with distribution of photos depicting sexual abuse of children. This is a criminal offense in accordance with the Italian penal code." This is what I get when I click the above link.

Citizen: Russian web meets Italian censorship. Fascinating. Rehosted.

User:Koveras: Yeah, I get that message far too often when I access my Russian blog, too. Thanks for reuploading the picture, Citizen, I should have thought of it myself. ^^

whitetigah: Weird, I'm from Italy too and yet I didn't get that message. Possibly because I'm using OpenDNS?

wllw: Thanks for rehosting. Nice pic, by the way.


Robert Bingham: Nomination for whoever wrote this sub-entry for Touhou on the Dynamic Entry page. I just love the turn of phrase at the end:

  • Worse than this is Chen, in her appearance in Shoot the Bullet. Usually, the player is encouraged to spend the first seconds before the boss appears stationary, charging his camera. This is usually well and good... except that Chen then proceeds to enter screen by falling like a brick in the exact same vertical line the player spawns at, usually ending with the first-time player eating a catgirl to the face.

cg12345: I'd like to nominate Zander Schubert for this entry on Most Wonderful Sound:

Real Life

  • "I do."

Awwwwwww.

Inkblot: Seconded.

Freezair For A Limited Time: Thirded! D'aaaaaawwwww...

Shoebox: Fourthed. That must've been quite the wedding.

Arutema: Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! STOP IT! Stop rubbing our faces in your romantic happiness bullshit if it was something everyone wanted or something everyone could have! I don't care if you put this in Made Of Lose, just STOP!

A Mere Servant Of God: ...so you're saying I can get a free Nintendo Wii, then?

Rogue 7: Oh quit whining. I'm 20 years old and I haven't had a real date in my life. Doesn't mean I don't agree with the sentiment. Fifthed.

cg12345: Geez, I just thought it was a nice sentiment; I didn't say I was going to force you into marriage at gunpoint, you know?

Trigger Loaded: Sixed... Err, Sixthed... Err, agree. Just because I have no prospects of marriage in my future, doesn't mean I can't be happy for those who do succeed.

Malchus: "as if it was something everyone wanted" potholed to Asexuality? Because all asexuals are angry and bitter non-romantics who hate love with a passion, right? Please, a person can be asexual and still be pleased for other people who can find happiness with other people. Heck, a person can be asexual and still get married.

Joysweeper: You can be asexual and fall in love, or go Shipping, even. Honestly? It doesn't matter how long we've gone without dates, blowing up because someone else succeeded where you haven't just makes you look like a Jerkass.

Vifetoile: Seventhed. Awww.

Dark Sasami: It's a toss-up between sour grapes and Hype Aversion for rather a lot of us.

  • Malchus: So? Every relationship I've tried has failed so far. Doesn't justify me ranting at people who succeed or soehorning asexuals (I'm related to one, so misunderstandings about them are my Berserk Button) as part of said ranting.

G-Mon: I found this entire exchange hilarious.

Zander Schubert: Firstly, thanks for the MOW points. Secondly, I'm glad/surprised/humbled/anotheradjective that something I've done has resulted in people going "Awwww....!" and "I KEEL YUO!!!!!!11~" at the same time. And, for the record, I'm single and dateless too. So, whatever...


Muzozavr: Since I'm a newbie to TV Tropes, and thus have no idea how to get a look at the "who edited what" database -- a MOW to whoever put that picture on the Mind Rape trope. If the page wasn't Nightmare Fuel for someone, it is definitely Nightmare Fuel NOW.

Medinoc: It's Fifth_Rider. And new entries at the top, please.


Sparkysharps: Their name is lost from the page history, but whoever topped off the Running David Bowie Gag in One-Scene Wonder with this line (in bold) deserves a MOW

  • The weighted companion cube from Portal is one of the game's most famous icons and is prominent in the game's merchandise, as well as a popular subject in fan art. The companion cube does not speak or move or threaten to stab you and only appears in a single level of the game, but is much more well known than the protagonist Chell or the villain G La DOS. Hell, he even got a trope named after him.

A Mere Servant Of God: One Made of Win to Haven, for this entry on the Scribblenauts Wild Mass Guessing page:

Scribblenauts is a recruitment tool for the Green Lantern Corps A la The Last Starfighter.

The next time Sinestro attacks Oa, he'll be fended off by an army of Longcats.

A Mere Servant Of God again: That's a beautiful thought.

Haven Thank you! To me that game is the Green Lantern simulator. :P


WWRU: In the Troper Tales spot for Hype Backlash...


CA Lieber: Rasalas, for finally making a page for Chef!, you win.


Robin Zimm: The following line in More Dakka warmed the cockles of my engineering heart:

A Sub-Trope of Impossibly Cool Weapon, in the sense that most weapons that can do this would be impossible to cool.

Dor: That would have been atomicthumbs. Seconded, though, as a physics geek.

User:Koveras: Thirded by a computer scientist. :D


Medinoc: This one is for both some troper lost to history and The Advertisement Server, making it an Ad of Win as well. But even our almighty ad server couldn't have done this alone.

The Advertisement Server: MUCH AS I HATE TO SHARE CREDIT WITH ANY HUMAN, I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT IS RATHER HUMOROUS AND GIVE UNKNOWN TROPER CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE.


Arutema: A m.d. .f .in to wh.ev.r r.wr.te Spike Spencer's p.g. .n Arakune's st.le.

If you had difficulty understanding that: "A made of win to whoever rewrote Spike Spencer's page in Arakune's style."

Arutema: S.m.one r.ver.td it, b.t pre.er.ed on .art..iki..


Zilo: Big ups and MOW to whoever placed this line in Pretty Cool Guy:


Magus: MOW to AOD for an incredibly interesting diatribe in the forums on meat and Western culture. It's in "Just Bugs Me!".

Haven: There's a thread for forum Mo W, it's in the "pinned" section.


Japanese Teeth: One MOW to everyone who contributed to the "credits" on the Whose Line Is It Anyway? Crowning Moment Of Funny page.

Shay Guy: Agreed. All it needs is a little more "this troper"-ness.


GG Crono: I'd like to toss a MoW to Alexlayer for the new page pic on Incredibly Lame Pun. I've seen it before, but it's just so fitting. Good show. :D

thatother 1 dude: To bad that, unlike the previous image, it doesn't actually demonstrate the trope.

Haven: I'm confused about how replacing something that is a pun with something that isn't is a better way to demonstrate Incredibly Lame Pun.

Pykrete: When I saw this MOW and checked late last night, it was this picture. Someone must've changed it this morning, perhaps the Collective Groan was too much.

Cassius 335: Yeah, the "Shall I give you Dis Pear" pic definatelty fits the trope and I can see why someone would think it fitted too well...

Shale While I prefer "Several bad puns later...", I'm at a loss for how a terrible pun doesn't demonstrate a trope about terrible puns.

thatother 1 dude: Because it perpetuate the incredibly freaking frustrating notion that this article is "bitch about puns that you think are stupid" not "puns that are acknowledged as bad", which is why I've had to go through the entire article picking out non-examples at least four times.

Shay Guy: It's about something? I thought it was a place to Pothole things. :P

Cassius 335: "Dis pear" is at least related to the trope. "Several bad puns later" isn't even a picture.

On a semi-related note, am I the only one who actually prefers a bit of white-space to shoving a pic off to the right out of the way? Pictures catch the eye so much easier when they're on the left.

Fast Eddie: Good topic for the forum, rather than here.

thatother 1 dude: The page image thing we'll take to the discussion page.


Medinoc: To whomever did the media categories in Gratuitous Japanese.

Haven: That was me, glad you rliked it. :o)

Freezair For A Limited Time: I bust a gut at the Tabletop Games section, and the associated Bilingual Bonus. Mmmmm... Cheetos.


Grimace: A bit of win for Tzetze for his work in cleaning up Dan Browned - rarely is it that simple hard work is appreciated here. Now, it should be said, more than a few others have made an effort in chainsawing the incorrect examples as well, and I give them crumbs of win also, but Tzetze gets the full point for putting the following as his "Reason": ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.

Cassius 335: * chuckle* Which means?

Medinoc: From memory of Wikipedia, it translates as "in his house in R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming". Maybe Cthulhu sleep-devoured 1d6 examples per second?

Trope Kira: So that means that TV Tropes is R'lyeh? ....Awesome.


Freezair For A Limited Time: One bit of nerdy but clever win for the person who put that caption on the picture on the Luigi's Mansion page.

Luthen: It was Cassius335 according to page history.

Cassius 335: No, not the current one. He's refferering to the caption before that, which said "It's a picture... but I wouldn't call it art." The MOW point therefore goes to Unknown Troper 70.120.171.81, not me.

Freezair For A Limited Time: Awww, I liked that old caption. It was clever. (And it's "she," beeteedubs.)

Cassius 335: I don't see the clever meself, but... * shrug*

Freezair For A Limited Time: May I ask, in Sincerity Mode, if you've truthfully played Luigi's Mansion? And if you have, have you ever used the Game Boy Horror for more than just warping back to the foyer/the stuff you have to use it for?

Cassius 335: That would be a 'no'. I take it I missed a reference?

Freezair For A Limited Time: Ah-ha! You did miss a reference. It's what Luigi says to himself every time you use the Game Boy Horror examine one of the copius paintings in the mansion.

Cassius 335: Ah,fair enough...


Noxshade:The picture comment on Amazing Technicolor Battlefield.


Earnest: I approve of Spectre Agent's addition of the picture to Enemy Civil War. That picture is illustrative in so many ways...

Malchus: I also approve of the picture choice and the caption. Although, some inane part of me thinks that those two Cylons will either kill each other or start making out... or both. Dammit, I should take a break from reading shipping tropes...


rsm109: Whoever coined "AK-666" to refer to Avada Kedavra on Berserk Button has my undying love.

tennessean: Let me guess: that's a reference to the Russian AK-630 CIWS, am I right?


Curtmack: To whoever potholed "in an organ accident" on the Mai-Otome example for Suspiciously Specific Denial.


User:Koveras: One to Terminus Est 13 for his despearate plea to the Powers That Be in the Gun Kata edit history. I'm not being mean now, but the edit comment just cracked me up. ^^


Gemmifer: From Second Gay Guy: "When a major character usually comes out of the closet or at least hinted to being inside or half way through the door but a cool dropshadow covers half his body in a alluring and mysterious style[...]" Hehe.

Dark Sasami: No snark intended -- what on earth does that mean?

Mr Death: I think it's an extension of the closet metaphor.

Gemmifer: Yes, I understand it like that too.


Spiri Tsunami: To whoever made Elvis a page quote on Leeroy Jenkins.


JK Roo: One to Real Slim Shadowen for all his work on Jonathan Coulton's page. Now you too can get EarWormed by almost every song on the page. Repeatedly! All at once! Help.

Real Slim Shadowen: * grabs the free hug certificate and squirrels it away, then looks longingly at his plans to make a fort out of them and realizes he's going to need to edit more*

Cassius 335: Sorry, only one coupon per customer. Didn't you read the small print?


Luthen: One to Alliterator for his addition to Once Upon a Time.

  • Now, are you sitting comfortably? Then let's begin. Once upon a time...[4]

Inkblot One for whoever wrote the following entry here:

  • "There's nothing more cool than being hugged by Torgo, but if Torgo tries to touch you in a place or in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable, DON'T EVER TRY THAT AGAIN, YOU BEAST!"

thatother 1 dude: From the part of the EVA character page on Yui Ikari (Shinji's mom):

"The link to the temporary picture is located at the top of this page, first page icon from the right. "

Sneaky


Rogue 7: One to Wraith Magus for the new picture on Genre Shift. I laughed out loud.

Citizen: Haha, excellent contrast.

GG Crono: I second this MoW. And I've never even seen/read Negima!


Dragon Quest Z: One to Alliterator for the description and picture for Lovecraft Lite.


One for the angel behind the one-word entry under Gushing About Characters You Like. The entry is: You. Huzzah for random kindnesses to strangers!


Shale: It's not in the history anymore, so a MOW to whoever added this FF 7 challenge to Self-Imposed Challenge:


Cryptic Mirror: A MOW to whoever came up with the Pothole in the picture of the BUMP page. Well done.

Medinoc: I don't get it... :(

Cryptic Mirror: It's the sheer randomness of it that makes it funny.

Citizen: DO NOT TAUNT THE HAPPY FUN FROG. I did the picture and pothole.


Doug S. Machina: A definite win for the page image and the caption explaining it on Bloodier and Gorier.

thatother 1 dude: Already nominated. Several times. And that's not even a joke original to that page.


Earnest: Though Spectre Agent has demonstrated being above wanting or needing such trivial "awards" as I can present, I heartily award one MOW point for the page image in Ubermensch.


J Bridge: Whoever made this little contribution to Good Bad Bugs.

Cquote1

Crysis features some extremely amusing bugs, but none are as awesome as the mighty Ascending Frog. By picking up a harmless frog from the ground and lofting it heavenwards, you will be awed as it proceeds into the stratosphere, unhindered by your puny gravity. Ascending Frogs can be seen in the wild in the cave immediately before the alien ship, where they cheerfully levitate, jumping vertically every time their hop animation cycles and staying that high until they hop again. Vicious brutes who shoot the noble Ascending Frog and subject it to gravity will pick the slain creature up and find it levitates above their hand, rotating slowly in righteous fury at their vile conduct and no doubt dubious sexual morals.

Cquote2

Arilou: Whoever named the "Nice Job Breaking It, Herod" page. Made me laugh out loud.


Guest Of Dishonour: Big thanks and good show to Space Drake for his help on the Atelier Rorona article, that page would have gotten bloody well nowhere if it wasn't for him (as I only had very basic knowledge of the game).


Meta Four: Omedalus for this bit from Anthropic Principle: "If the in-game villagers could see your hard drive, they'd realize their savior was not simply one courageous farm boy, but a veritable army of thousands of clones of said farm boy all pursuing the adventure simultaneously in some kind of creepy quantum superposition of protagonism."


Killer Clowns: A point to Floria for her(?) bit on Villain Whitewashing Service. Your second whitewashing was absolutely brilliant!

Medinoc: And a point for Haven's entry.

Haven: Thanks. I'm just glad to do my job to set the record straight about this wrongfully maligned...okay I can't go on any further.


Ouroboros: Whoever put this on Accentuate the Negative.

Cquote1

 Waldorf: Just when you think this page can't get any worse, something wonderful happens!

Statler: What's that?

Waldorf: It ends!

Both: Do-ho-ho-ho-hoh!

Cquote2

Rothul: I think that was me. Thank you!


thatother 1 dude: The troper lost to history responsible for this bit in This Is a Drill

  • The Fire Nation use a giant drill as a siege weapon in Avatar: The Last Airbender. (episode title: "The Drill")
    • Given that the country it's boring into is based on Imperial China, this could easily be called a real Chinese Fire Drill.

Haven: Seconded. And ouch. And seconded.


Inkblot: One for whoever wrote the caption for Beam Spam.


Grimace A MoW to the Unknown Troper 64.251.32.254, for this little quip at the bottom of Sci Fi Ghetto, regarding the newly named "SyFy Channel" (put leading entry beforehand so it makes sense):

  • Is it still meant to be pronounced "Sci-Fi?" This editor and everyone he knows concur that it ought to be "Siffy."
    • This troper pronounces it "* sigh* Fi".

Robin Zimm: A MoW for alliterator for Write a Film Noir -- I'm shocked it hadn't been given already.

Radical Taoist: I do remember it being MoWed already; it's probably in the archives.


Fanra: A huge Made of Win for whoever put:

Cquote1

 Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue: If you do drugs, you'll get to see your favourite cartoon stars!

Cquote2

in Warp That Aesop. If only it was true...

Sparkysharps: well, it could be, provided you light up while watching Boomerang.


User:Yarrunmace One to the unknown troper who put the following comment on the It Just Bugs Me page for Cartoon Network (slightly edited for grammer issues)

    • This troper feels that the network has gone beyond Jumping the Shark to the point of leaving the ramp, clearing twenty sharks, clearing the Atlantic, Europe, Asia, America, the sharks again and then reaching escape velocity and crashing into Pluto.

Kinitawowi: One for the troper responsible for the Worm Sign page; specifically, for getting a Dune example into every subsection (including Real Life).

Shay Guy: Wasn't This Is a Drill criticized when it did that with Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann?

Sceboal: Aren't pages that are funny in general criticized?

That Other 1 dude: And yet no one objected to doing the same with Batman examples in Grappling Hook Pistol.

Kinitawowi: It works for Worm Sign because Dune is the Trope Namer and the Most Triumphant Example. It worked less well for This Is a Drill because Tengen isn't really either, as far as I can tell (disclaimer - I've never seen it), so it looks less about tribute and more about Entry Pimping.

Real Slim Shadowen: At least one person objected to the Grappling Hook Pistol thing, as they edited Grappling Hook Pistol to suit their tastes, cutting it down to three categories out of nine, a page quote, and a fnord-style hidden reference.

Mr Death: Yeah, there was a whole edit war about it, after which the same person went and edited Da Editor in the same fashion.

Insanity Prelude: :| It's funny and it's not hurting anything. Sheesh.

Latw PIAT: I'll take half credit on the grounds that I added every example except Literature already there), Film (already there) and Real Life. Rest of credit goes to whoever completed the cycle.


Lemurian: One to the one who added the last line to this conversation:


Reading Champion: One to whomever started the article Cricket Rules with the following: "Describe Cricket Rules here.

No, really, please do; it seems to be some organized form of Calvinball." Because... so true.

L: What I like about Cricket Rules is how the descriptions on the page gradually devolve from staid encyclopedic description into a bizarre half-nonsensical parody of English culture and demeanour in general. Now I know what you're thinking, and I am completely aware that someone will now jump in and say "No, you don't understand, that's actually how Cricket is played."

Haven: "There are exactly ten-ish ways to get the batsman out..." * head explodes*

Joysweeper: I was eating a pear when I got to "If it's raining, or just a bit cloudy, everyone goes into the pavilion and drinks tea. Occasionally, the umpires will come out, wander around the pitch a bit, decide it's still not sunny enough, and go back in." Then I was made helpless with laughter.

Madrugada: Indeed. That is masterful.


Some Sort Of Troper: Will whoever added the following to Olympus Mons please collect their free hug voucher from the Information Desk:

[-Give a nickname to the captured GOD?
'"CRSTDRGJS_"'
CRSTDRGJS was sent to ALICE's PC!-]

thatother 1 dude: Already nominated.


Thnikkafan A TV Tropes Made of Win Archive to whoever for the subtle potholing on the Apocalypse How page.

  • What the Integrated Data Thought Entity, the Organization, and Mikuru's boss wants to prevent indirectly by not allowing Suzumiya Haruhi to discover her powers.

Kriegsmesser: A win to Milu for the Heath Ledger page. * salutes*


Taeraresh: Congratulations to whoever came up with Grievous Bottley Harm. Now that is an Incredibly Lame Pun.

A Freddy: For a second there, I though it said Grievous Buttery Harm, which would've been sweet.

Specialist 290: But butter is kind of bland...

Malchus: I see what you did there, Freddy. Oh, by the way, no stealy my namey! ;P


Haven: I don't think I remembered to do this before, so: a TV Tropes Made of Win Archive to occono for Sincerity Mode. It's an excellent idea!


thatother 1 dude: This bit from Nothing Is Scarier:

I literally laughed out loud.


Specialist 290: One to Earnest for describing Godzilla as the "patron saint of collateral damage" in Godzilla Threshold. Funniest thing I've read in a while :D

Earnest: Thank you! I have my moments. ^_~


L: Volde Mart is just the sort of terrible pun that makes entire eyebrows fall out, fetuses start crying in the womb, and grown men's urine freeze solid mid-stream. I must give it its due.


User:Koveras: A MOW goes to the contributors to this YKTTW. Normally, I'd wait until it is launched, but it seems that it won't be (for a reason).

Niel Jacoby: I just launched it.

User:Koveras: Brilliant! At first, I was like... but then I lol'd. :D You get an extra MOW for just that.

Niel Jacoby: For Me? Aw, banana oil. * blushes* ... Extra? I never claimed to contribute In fact, I didn't contribute. But thank you for the MOW. And sorry for the misunderstanding. Although... I did launch it, so I would technically count as a contributor. So thanks.


alliterator: To whoever added the picture of Department of Redundancy Department and included this caption: Yo dawg, heard you like tropes, so I put a trope in your trope so you can ruin your life while you ruin your life!

Ace Of Scarabs: It's a golden gag - go for platinum and make the image one of an infinitely redundant loop (Image in the image show another image with more nested inside like some demented infinite Russian Doll).

alliterator: Great minds think alike! I did just that.

Ace Of Scarabs: Now you, too, deserve a MoW!

L: The fact that there's an ad embedded in the picture annoys me slightly.

Malchus: Silence, fool! You'll anger... HIM.

Itsmeyouidiot: Phht, what's he gonna do, mess up our contributor pages?


The Bad Wolf: Whoever put this into Wanton Cruelty to the Common Comma (history dosn't go back that far)

Cquote1
Cquote2

thatother 1 dude: Thank you, that was me, though I didn't add the Pot Holes (at least not the first one). I put that there after reading the article when it was only a couple days old, with examples paragraphs truly proving What Do You Mean It's Not Awesome? and Minor Injury Overreaction to be Truth in Television.


Robin Zimm: I nominate Unistrut, who added to Second Life, "Loads and Loads of Loading: Going places in Second Life is like watching the mind erasure scenes from Eternal Sunshine at half speed in reverse."


Latw PIAT: One to whoever, in the Pitch Testing Zone, wrote the line "then Gendo Ikari shoots Ocelot" That has to be the funniest Diabolus Ex Machina I've ever read.


Insanity Prelude: One MOW to Mister Six (I think?) for the Sierra folder on Unwinnable By Mistake. More specifically, the full name of said folder.

Haven: It's kind of an eyesore.

Medinoc: I'm surprised that Sierra appears at all in the "by mistake" category...

Inkblot: The Sierra folder was my idea, but the phrase itself came from Korora (and had already gotten a MoW). I'll trim it down so it's a bit less of an eyesore.

Haven: Don't worry about it, I just said that for the meme.


Thinks Too Much: I feel guilty about nominating something for TV Tropes Made of Win Archive so soon after the last time, but couldn't resist the following. Do bother to read all of it.

Cquote1

 * Loads shotgun, shogun gun, ninja gun, samurai gun, pirate gun, robot gun, shojarairatebot gun, B B gun, bee bee gun, hornet hornet gun, yellow jacket yellow jacket gun, sword gun, gun sword, gun gun, regular grenades, flash grenades, fire grenades, bee grenades, hornet grenades, yellow jacket grenades, plasma grenades, grenade grenades, gun grenades, and pepper spray* .

Cquote2

That is from the real life by the way.


Crowley: I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Starscream article had a bit of a revamp, but it was this line at the end that I'm nominating.

Of course, some suspect there are other reasons why Megatron doesn't just shoot Starscream more often...


thatother 1 dude: Whoever came up with the awesome joke of the trope title Hollywood California[5]

L: For those that don't get it, the joke is that it means "Hollywood-style California" (as per Hollywood Homely) as well as "Hollywood, California". Subtle, subtle.

Cassius 335: The trouble is that if people try to do orginal names, other people complain because they don't get it.


Enlong: One MOW point to whoever named Olympus Mons. I just now understood the second part of the double-layered pun that is the name. Olympus Mons is a mountain on Mars.

Medinoc: It's not only on Mars, you know... There is one on Earth too.

Enlong: Yes, but the martian one is the only one that's actually called "Olympus Mons" by English speakers. We call the other one "Mount Olympus". A slight difference, but there ya go.

Dark Sasami: If there weren't one on Earth, there wouldn't be one on Mars. But anyway, that was me. Thanks!

schpeelah: I think it's the martian Olympus Mons being referenced b/c it's the largest mountain in the Solar System some 20 km I believe.


Sparkysharps: One MOW to to Impacto for the following bit in Go Nagai Sideburns Discussion. I laughed for a full minute:

Cquote1

 Passing Lurker: Do Issac Asimov's sideburns qualify as a real-life example?

Cquote2
Cquote1

 Impacto: they are when he's drawn like this :p

Cquote2

thatother 1 dude: Agreed, and where is that pic from. Also, to answer the question: That picture is an understatement.

Inkblot: Since when is Asimov a firebender?


Vifetoile: The Page History on the Mary Sue page doesn't seem to exist, but I'd still like to nominate whoever put down these lyrics. It's just spot-on:

Cquote1

I am everything you want, I am everything you need,

I am everything inside of you that you wish you could be.

I say all the right things, at exactly the right time,

But I mean nothing to you, and I don't know why...
Vertical Horizon, Everything You Want
Cquote2

Cidolfas: For whoever added this line in Canadian History (again, page history doesn't go back far enough):

March 30, 1968: Celine Dion is born. We're sorry.


Thinks Too Much: One for whoever made the following entries under You Know You Read Too Much All the Tropes When... (the part about your iPod playlist titles.)

Cquote1

 Another is titled Poke the Poodle, and you're not sure how it got there.

You refuse to even think about how you ended up with a playlist entitled Moral Event Horizon.

Cquote2

Oh, and a note of thanks to whoever made Sliding Scale Long Name an alternate title for... I'm not typing it.

Cassius 335: That would be Sliding Scale of Idealism Versus Cynicism ("Cut and Paste" is your friend).

A Mere Servant Of God: Yeah, well, maybe we don't wanna cut and paste, huh?! Maybe we're already cutting and pasting something, huh?! Maybe some of us prefer to type, but don't want to type that much, you think?! AND MAYBE THE FISH COCKTAIL WITH A SIDE OF CANADIAN KITTENS ON A TUESDAY THAT CAN'T SHAVE ITSELF WITHOUT THIS BABY UNTIL YOU FALL DOWN OFF A SKYSCRAPER AND BREAK YOUR FALL WITH YOUR ENORMOUS CREDENZA YOU SPOONY BARD!!! MELOMIE IN THE MORNING SUN GRASHALK TIM TANGERS AND THEIR ZOOB-ZOOBLERS AND EVEN MORE KITTENS CHUCK NORRIS SAUCE AND THEN THE UNIVERSE EXPLODES!!!!!

Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

Egak: MoW to A Mere Servant Of God.

Cassius 335 (@ A Mere Servant Of God): "I have a very simple question: What the fuck are you talking about?" (Hugh Dennis, Mock the Week)

The original poster is thankful for the vehement championing, but you could have just said "Have you ever heard of Self Demonstrating Made Of Win Posts?"

A Mere Servant Of God (@Cassius335): You know what, I don't know either. Move along, folks, nothing to see here...


ROBRAM 89: A point to whoever fixed the unsightly redlink atop the Geek Reference Pool page by making a page for Revenge of the Nerds (or fixing the link, not certain which).


sgrunt: To kor and Lemurian, who put together this entertainingly Pot Holed transcription on Combos:

K.o.R: Woo! My first actual MoW that wasn't nuked the second I got it!


Whoever put the Saturn V picture on the Crowning Moment of Awesome page, thank you. It's perfect.

A Mere Servant Of God: Seconded. And, just in case it's possible for one person to do it, I'll third it too.


Cidolfas: To whoever added the first quote at the top of the Plagiarism page (history doesn't seem to go back that far). It took me a few seconds before getting the joke. Kudos!

Shay Guy: I love that tag.

Cidolfas: And, unfortunately, someone has gone and made the joke much more obtruse. (It used to just have a - as the source of the quote). Too lazy to change it back, though, and not interested in an edit war.


the grene kni3t: To LE Xicon 712 for the footnote on the image caption in Did Not Do the Research.


tennessean: One TV Tropes Made of Win Archive to occono for the coupon image in this very page!


Inkblot: To whoever made a page for The Magic Bullet.


Cliche: Thanks, Ethereal Mutation, for filling up the actual Cliche page. It was kind of odd that a site about fictional media didn't actually have a page about them until recently.


Curtmack: To Servitor_2152, for the image caption on Ocular Gushers.


Paul A: The third paragraph of Superhero Paradox (by Meta 4, I think?) is Made of Win. I read "But underneath the surface, the real cause of this is a cabal of extradimensional intelligences", and laughed. Then I read the rest of the sentence...


Frisko: One to Inkblot for his/her explanation as to why someone in Doctor Who must be be a Time Lord.

Inkblot: That was...quick. Thanks, though!


Neep: One to whoever added that awesome page image to High-Class Glass. Love it!

Haven: Glad you like it!


whitetigah: One to Unknown Troper @ 87.127.17.167 for taking the lines I've been stealthily adding over the past few weeks to Suzumiya Haruhi (all repetitions of "Kyon-kun, denwa~ / We've entered an endless recursion of time" but the first one) and adding the potholes.


Count Dorku: One to LL Smooth J (and anyone else involved; I don't have time to check all of them) for all of the Laconic descriptions of the "You Fail X Forever" tropes. For anyone who hasn't seen them, each one basically goes,

Cquote1

 SUBJECT DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!

GOODNIGHT!

Cquote2

ROBRAM 89: I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but the existence of The Pen Is Mightier (see the real page, The Pen Is Mightier) is hilarious. It's too bad An Album Cover is too vague to make a trope out of.

Inkblot: I remember that name from the Biggus Dickus YKTTW. I'm glad to see some troper gave it a home, even if it's just as a joke.

Haven: So are you giving the pmwiki software a TV Tropes Made of Win Archive point for working that way? Or are you giving Rothul one for adding that pothole at the bottom?

Johnny E: Personally I want to see a Psycho Therapist trope, just for the options Psycho Therapist and Psycho Therapist. Or perhaps just go for the Arrested Development Shout-Out with "Analrapist" (a cross between an analyst and a therapist, of course). Oh, and there's now a 1 Fun With Wiki Words forum game by the way.
