Added DiffLines:
---- @/TheWalkingAnomaly: It seems that Troper/{{fhtagn}} was nominated for something different before, but I want to give him/her another nomination. In adding quotes to the ''Characters/{{Daria}}'' character page, he or she also added a joke related to one of them that most ''{{Daria}}'' fans would appreciate. (I won't do it injustice by spoiling it.) I will say I laughed out loud when I saw it. @/{{SonicLover}}: Maybe it's because I don't follow ''Daria'' and just skimmed over the character page, but I didn't see it. @/{{Qube}}: I'll give you a hint; Jerome. ---- @/{{dhoffryn}}: This passage from the [[BetterThanItSounds/LiveActionTV Better Than It Sounds]] page elicited a surprised laugh: * A man is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about his profession, but ironically, when he tries to apply it to his life, it always blows up in his face. He hosts an informational show with a far more sensible assistant/friend whose personal life he is always making jabs at, and lives with a sarcastic and sharp-tongued companion with a set of personal tastes as different from those of the main character as possible. When faced with problems, the main character consults a highly knowledgeable but eccentric adviser whose most notable peculiarity is the fact that an essential aspect of the character is always kept off-screen. Wait, hang on...are we talking about [[spoiler: HomeImprovement]] or [[spoiler: {{Frasier}}]]?? ---- @/ProgenyExMachina: One for whoever added this to the CopyCatSue page: -->Gryffindor has won every single match since 1997 because it has 20,000,000 Seekers on its team. ---- @/{{Wheezy}}: I know someone's probably going to kill the current page image for MysteriousWaif for "not illustrating the trope..." But I seriously hope you don't. Please? Tropers/SgtFrog1: In case someone does, you're talking about the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghan_Girl Afghan Girl]], right? Sometimes called "the Mona Lisa of Afghanistan", those eyes, they pierce into your very soul.. ---- @/{{SpiriTsunami}}: To @/{{sonicsuns}} for the intro to MoonLogicPuzzle. -->Sometimes, it's easy to see how to SolveTheSoupCans - give the chicken noodle to the guard with the cold, trade the tomato for the red orb, and pour the cream of mushroom into the chalice with [[SuperMarioBros Mario]] engraved on the side. ---- [=~Dorsk e+2i~=]: Props for the following line on TheJoker: * IntimidatingRevenueService: I'm crazy enough to take on Batman, but the IRS? No, thank you! {{Egak}}: You do realize that's a quote from an episode of BatmanTheAnimatedSeries, right? ---- {{Tropers/KyleJacobs}}: I just discovered the Real Life section of TalkToTheFist, and the HurricaneOfPuns contained therein. Funniest thing I've seen all day, props to everyone who contributed there. {{Tropers/ZellThe5th}}: So very seconded. ---- {{Tropers/InkkiBookman}}: I like to award a few Internets to the person who created the handy diagrams for the tropes CompetitiveBalance, FragileSpeedster, MightyGlacier, StoneWall and GlassCannon as it explains those tropes so well. @/{{Madrugada}}: @/{{Earnest}} made those. And I agree that they're MOW material. @/{{Earnest}}: Thanks y'all! ^_^ It was pretty fun to do actually, and a lot of it was thanks to the IP thread's feedback. ---- {{Tropers/Roxor}}: I must say I feel obligated to offer an award to the splendid gentleman, or lady, with the astounding dedication to rewrite the entirety of the article entitled "AntiquatedLinguistics" in such a manner as to [[SelfDemonstratingArticle provide a demonstration of the trope therein described]], extending to not only the main article and the example category headers, but also the full text of the examples and many of the work titles. I must say I was especially amused by the title "''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Diminutive Equine: Camaraderie Is Enchantment]]''", as it is an entirely plausible title for a book written by the character discussed in the entry. ---- {{Tropers/Elle}}'s YKTTW UsefulNotes/TeaAndTeaCulture. If it hasn't been launched yet you can read it [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/discussion.php?id=9x29ivipxjiu4qrlnje8yxvp here]]. One of the best written YKTTW's I have ever seen in my years here. @/{{SonicLover}}: I read that title too fast at first and thought it was about a weird version of British culture revolving around explosives (pun on "TNT"). @/{{Vifetoile}}: Seconded. That is phenomenal. ---- @/{{Zfish9}}: I can't remember which index it was, but one of them had a picture of [[ToAruMajutsuNoIndex Index]] with a caption that linked to VisualPun. A made of win to whoever did that, and another to anyone who can find it and link to it here, as I cannot find it. @/PhoenixFire: I think that was on EverythingsBetterWithIndexes. It's been replaced with a different VisualPun now, though. @/TheChainMan: It's NothingButtAnIndex. I know, because I was the one who created the page and had the image. So thanks! ---- @/{{ReikoKazama}}: One for whoever did the [[CrowningMomentOfFunny freakin' hilarious]] caption for the TeamDad page image. ---- @/{{Malkyrian}}: Lost to history now, but one for the page image for RoyalWe. ---- @/{{SlvstrChung}}: To whoever wrote the "[[SoYouWantTo/BeTheNextWilliamShakespeare So You Want To Be The Next William Shakespeare]]" page and started it with a perfectly-rhymed, almost-perfectly-scanning, completely pertinent Shakespearean sonnet. Bravo, unknown troper! @/{{Vifetoile}}: Thanks! I was that unknown troper (have since been made known) and I think that @/{{Nightsky}} deserves credit for polishing up the original version. Thank you again! @/{{Nightsky}}: Yep, most of it was @/{{Vifetoile}}, with an assist by me. The balance of the page is mostly @/{{Vifetoile}}. Who rules. ---- @/{{Feotakahari}}: I was going to add a quote from ''{{Cracked}}'' to BlockPuzzle, but Tropers/GGCrono already did--within a few hours of its being posted on the original site. Good show! ---- @/{{Madrugada}}: I have to brag on the fine folks who did the Great "Understatement" Sinkhole Sweep. Between 9:23 pm forum time August 30th, and 8:58 forum time October 10th, @/KJMackley, @/{{peccantis}}, @/{{Nohbody}}, @/ThirtyTwoFootsteps, @/{{Balmung}}, @/{{Osmium}}, @/MorganWick, @/{{Nocturna}}, @/{{TwentyLogRootTen}}, @/TheOneWhoTropes, @/{{unhappyyak}}, @/{{taifun}}, @/{{GLH}}, @/{{desdendelle}}, @/{{bwburke94}}, @/{{Oreochan}}, @/{{originalhobbit}}, @/{{Bookyangel2438}}, and @/{{Nithael}} (listed in order of appearance) cleared out over '''8000''' incorrect wicks to {{Understatement}} across the wiki. Made of win, indeed. @/BooleanEarth: I'd like to add @/{{Nombretomado}} to that list. She doesn't post on the forums, but she's helped remove the {{Understatement}} sinkholes and has also been a huge force in the great namespace migration. ---- @/LiberatedLiberater: A MadeOfWin for whoever came up with the name for ImDyingPleaseTakeMyMacGuffin. ---- @/{{Madrugada}}: One for @/{{Turrican}} and an unknown troper lost in the mists of time for the linkback to the main BilingualDialogue page on the Laconic.BilingualDialogue. I laughed out loud and startled the dog at this: -->[-Visite la versión íntegra [[BilingualDialogue AQUÍ]]-] -->[-Thanks, I'll do that-] ---- @/BooleanEarth: A wee one goes to @/{{Wakson}} for adding this to the page for ReservoirDogs: * OnlySaneMan: Mr. Pink spends a lot of time playing this role as things get more heated between the other thieves. ** He's only trying to be a "f*cking professional." ---- @/{{Zfish9}}: Whoever added this question on [[ACertainMagicalIndex Touma's]] [[Characters/ToAruMajutsuNoIndex Character Sheet]] gave me a very good laugh, and deserves a very epic Made of Win: ----> "If there is a girl in a closed room, and Touma does not open the door and walk in, is she still naked?" ---- @/{{case}}: The spoiler tag in AbortedArc for RealLife is much appreciated, I'm still catching up. ---- @/{{alliterator}}: I'm sorry for making two in a row, but every troper who contributed to the InspectorSpacetime page deserves a Made of Win. ---- @/{{alliterator}}: For making the most awesome visual in my head, one Made Of Win to whoever made this intrepretation of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' on this [[WMG/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicMeta WMG page]]: -->''"It is the [[{{Warhammer40000}} 41st Millennium]]. For more than a hundred centuries the Princess Celestia has sat immobile in the Golden Stable of Equestria, laid low by the [[HorusHeresy Twilight Heresy]]. In the bright, happy future there is only friendship."'' ---- @/{{Medinoc}}: One MOW to @/{{Stormtroper}} for the trope name PooledFunds. ---- @/MrDeath: To the unnamed troper lost to the mysts of time, who added, following a description of [[TheDresdenFiles The Archive]], who instantly knows anything written down, hardcopy and electronic: -->* Hi, Ivy! How's it going? @/{{SonicLover}}: It took me a bit of research to figure out why that was so clever. [[spoiler:"Ivy" is another name for the Archive.]] What page is that on? @/MrDeath: D'oh, my mistake. It's on TheLibraryOfBabel. ---- @/REV6Pilot: On AskTheTropers, we got this exchange in a topic about a problematic troper, {{@/Typhlosion}}: -->'''battosaijoe''': Such a shame, tis my favorite Pokemon. Who knew that Fire-types weren't good at grammar?\\ '''Chabal2''': Bad grammar is often FlameBait, thus answering your question. ---- {{Tropers/Glixinator}}: One made of win to ZehMonsieur for his major contribution to filling out the [[Characters/DeadliestWarrior Characters]] page for Deadliest Warrior. ---- @/{{Medinoc}}: To whoever made this exchange in NonIndicativeName: * You will never meet a person with [[RaceTropes skin tones]] matching either the background or the font used on this page. ** [[CompletelyMissingThePoint No, I saw]] BlueManGroup live in Las Vegas. ---- @/{{G-Mon}}: Is it okay if I give a Win to the [[RandomNumberGod RNG]]? If so, I'm giving it one for sending me through InsatiableNewlyweds, SpankTheCutie, MenstrualMenace, and AwfulBritishSexComedy, in that order, via the "Random" button. [[CovertPervert I think the RNG's trying to say something, by the way.]] ---- {{Tropers/Katsuhagi}}: One to whoever put this on the SuicideAttack page, which got an honest LOL out of me: Deidara tries to kill Sasuke with his "Ultimate Art", his C-0 technique, which involves Deidara feeding his explosive clay to a mouth on his chest (...?) and, after about a minute, detonating himself with enough force to obliterate everything within 10 kilometers. Sasuke survived by using the absolute ultimate defensive technique in the entire series: the [[AssPull Plot no Jutsu]]. ---- @/{{Lightflame}}: One to whoever wrote this on the Headscratchers page for ButForMeItWasTuesday. ** Raiding villages he does on Tuesday, Laundry on Wednesday. M. Bison is a man who keeps his schedule. @/PaulA: You mean the [[Headscratchers/StreetFighter Headscratchers page]] for ''Film/StreetFighter'', surely. Only works have Headscratchers pages. @/{{T-Jack}}: We are at war with Oceania. We have always been at war with Oceania. ---- @/{{Nightsky}}: One to @/{{NOYB}} for nuking someone's hasty addition of rumoured episode titles to the [[Recap/DoctorWho Recap/DoctorWho]] page and giving the following edit reason: *sings* Do not believe the Daily Star, The Daily Star, The Daily Star, Do not believe the Daily Star, Their magazine is tabloid ---- @/{{Grimace}}: A little MOW to @/DuckDuckNoose for adding the caption under the page image for ArkhamHorror. I'd never pictured the game as being a war between mad cultists and sterotypical 1950s gangsters before, but it works perfectly! ---- @/{{Encrypted12345}} Thanks to @/LogicallyDashing for adding this line to the {{Rance}} page. RapeTropes: All of them. Even the ones that contradict each other. It's so hilariously true, yet I never consciously noticed it. Thanks! ---- @/{{GibberingTroper}} Whoever added GirlOnGirlIsHot to the TruthInTelevision page. Especially since they just posted the trope and let it speak for itself. ---- @/DougSMachina One for whoever found the new image for RatedMForManly. It's not so the macho action depicted as the magazine's headlines. @/{{Madrugada}}: @/{{suedenim}} provided a link to [[http://thedixonverse.com/blog/?cat=4 an entire website of "Manlier Magazine Covers"]], and @/FlyingV found that particular one amidst all the galleries. ---- @/{{Dontcallmewave}} A shiny win for @/{{Camacan}} for this from AskTheTropers * I also see he has a problem with adding natter and disregarding proper Example Indentation. That last issue bugs me so much that sometimes I worry I'm going to end up in a clocktower with my banrifle while Fighteer shouts at me with a megaphone to come down. And one for @/{{blackcat}} for his response: * I don't think he will be shouting for you to come down, I think he'll be pointing out targets. ---- @/{{DRoy}} One more: To for this gem in Headscratchers/TheHumanCentipede: * I have one. When the director brought in the surgeon to make sure the film was accurate... How would you bring a project like that up? I mean, it's not something you just blurt out is it? -->'''Surgeon''': Hi! So you wanted me to check over this movie? See if it was accurate? -->Director: [[CreepyMonotone Yeah, just look over the simple things: surgical tools, blood effects]], what would happen if [[BreadEggsMilkSquick someones stitches your anus to someones face]], [[BlatantLies the usual]]. -->'''Surgeon''': Oh, alright I-wait, [[FlatWhat what]]? -->'''Director''': Just check to see if the film uses the correct medical terms and check to see if [[BreadEggsMilkSquick it's possible to stitch a bunch of people together to create one digestive tract]]. -->'''Surgeon''': You're joking right? P-please tell me y-you're joking. -->'''Director''': [[LittleNo Nope.]] -->'''Surgeon''': W-why would..? I s-suppose it's... T-theoretically- -->'''Director''': That's good enough, I'll call up the graphics guy and have him put it on the DVD cover. -->'''Surgeon''': But I never... [[ThisIsSparta YOU. NEED. HELP]]. ---- @/{{DRoy}}: To an anonymous troper for this post in UranusIsShowing. Just everything about this post is wrong and hilarious in so many ways. -->The Hellblazer/Sailor Moon crossover fic Sailor Hellblazer has a 'deleted scene' where John Constantine calls Sailor Uranus 'Sailor Arsehole' in an argument that might have started over football. ---- @/{{Embryon}}: To @/{{Teeth}} for this observant and very amusing addition to the ''Series/BeingHuman'' page: -->ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: George when transforming. At first, [[PainfulTransformation this is completely justified]], but when Nina comes along and doesn't make a fraction of the noise he does... ---- @/{{Zadia}}: One sparkly Made of Win to whomever was responsible for the following, copied from NineOutOfTenDoctorsAgree: "This trope has nothing to do with DoctorDolittle, DoctorDoom, DoctorFaustus, [[DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Doctor Horrible]], DoctorPhil, DoctorSlump, DoctorStrange, DrStrangelove, DoctorZhivago, [[TheStrangeCaseOfDoctorJekyllAndMrHyde Doctor Jekyll]], DoctorSteel, [[WitchDoctor witch doctors of any denomination]], or any of the Doctors from Series/DoctorWho, though you probably could find something at least nine of them agreed on. [[hottip:* : Specifically Doctors 1-7, 9, and 10. We would've asked the Eighth Doctor, but nobody really knows what he's been doing and we're all too lazy to consult [[BigFinishDoctorWho the audio dramas]] and [[EighthDoctorAdventures stuff]]. And Eleventh's too busy saving the universe with Mr. and Mrs. Pond, so...]]" ---- @/{{Feotakahari}}: Someone described ''Film/{{Teeth}}'' as a LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek. @/{{Fhtagn}}'s response: --> Alternatively, you could look at it as the opposite of ''SilentHill'', in that its protagonist is a disturbing, psychosexual mutant who has to run a gauntlet of ordinary humans who want to molest her. ---- @/CrypticMirror: One bright shiny MoW for @/{{Camacan}} on AskTheTropers where one tro//\\ poster decided to use it to ask if Snape was Harry Potter's father. -->'''Camacan''': "[[http://wickywicky.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Severus-Snape.bmp Expelliarmus paternity suitia]]!◊" ---- @/{{Koveras}}: A MOW to @/{{Aielyn}} for adopting and launching the YahgReveal... uh, I mean, the StrangerBehindTheMask YKTTW. ---- @/{{alliterator}}: One Made of Win wrapped in awesomesauce for @/{{Scrounge}} for this line in PlayingWith/ARiddleWrappedInAMysteryInsideAnEnigma: -->"...Like some sort of conundrum turducken..." ---- @/{{Earnest}}: One MOW straight from the TARDIS for @/LadyMomus, for going through and fixing various ''Series/DoctorWho'' entries on tropes to direct to the series ([=Series/DoctorWho=] rather than [=DoctorWho=]) @/DeathToSquishies: And I extend that to her fixing the potholes to various video games in much the same way. ---- @/ProgenyExMachina: One to Omny for their...OriginalFlavor...review for TheCatInTheHat. ---- @/ZarbiNerada: A two-fold Made of Win: One to whoever did the description of ''TheAristocats'', and another for the following line on ''TheAristocrats'': * Not to be confused with ''TheAristocats'', although there probably isn't really much risk of that. (Your Netflix job wouldn't last very long if you mixed the two films up.) ---- @/{{T-Jack}}: One to Daddy Eight for creating [[Heartwarming/{{Demonophobia}} the Heartwarming page for Demonophobia]]: -->HAHAHAHAHAHA, YEAH, RIGHT. ---- @/ChrisX: One to whoever put this line in SamuraiShodown's GoodBadTranslation entry. Way to go to spoof [[ArtOfFighting Ryo Sakazaki's]] near immortal line in KingOfFighters 98! * Absolutely ridiculous translations. That's SNK. And don't forget it, dweebenheimer! ---- '''Continued in MadeOfWinArchiveEarly2011.''' ----
