I was wondering, should we do the same thing for it that Survival of the Fittest does? I.E. Add tropes to the page that certain characters fulfill.

Oh Lord of the Squeeky Cheese.

When two of the best things in the Internet unite, awesoness oozes into reality and solidifies into solid bars of solidness made of solid solidity, namely called 'Awesome Bars'.


To answer you, Adder, I'm not sure it'd be quite the same as what you mentioned. Not in a positive or negative sense, mind you, but in a different way.

And how could you qualify to be in the list, except to be a Troper?


Yes, I have a dream, of electronic sheeps and linen bedsheets. But that's not the point. Or isn't it?

If they're game character, actual in-character canon game characters, then yeah, maybe consider doing so.

If they're ROLEPLAYERS -- no. Transitory, not indicative of the site itself.

It's something that you can write in to show other people things about some things. And other things.

It seems my explanation is too...Thingy.


There are two secrets to success. The second one is to never reveal all your secrets.

Good articulate explanation there Omega.

Having had a look at the 'Survival of the Fittest' page on the site, I believe that what Adder is suggesting is a list of recurrent themes or motifs that crop up on the Island.

This explanation might not be any more clear than Omega's, but it uses cleverer sounding words.

I can't think of any examples that you might want to add off the top of my head though, I think that might make things a bit clearer.

I'm surprised "Bribing Your Way to Victory" ended up on that page. There's no real victory to bribe for, and the things you get for donation points are, for the most part, fun rather than useful.

I have to say, I still don't get it.
