%%%%For my personal reference and ease of handling:

%%%%%%%%%%%% Before adding a trope, check its page to see if it should go in the Main or Trivia tabs instead.

%% Examples with no context will be deleted.

%% TV Tropes is not a forum; don't start conversation in the main page.

%% Don't use words such as "recently," "lately," or "soon" when adding examples. They won't be recent for very long.

%%Don't spoiler trope names.

%% The numpad code to type an accented "e" (é) is Alt+130 in Windows.

%% Don't add And The Fandom Rejoiced. It's a SugarWiki page.

%% ZeroContextExample entries are not allowed on wiki pages. All such entries have been commented out. Add context to the entries before uncommenting them.

%% Only one trope per line, and don't put tropes at secondary bullet points; not even subtropes. This is proper example indentation.

%% Badass has become a fanspeak term; no longer a trope. You can still use the word, of course, but don't pothole it anymore.

I stumbled onto this site one day, I forget exactly how, and one of the first pages I read was {{FLCL}}. That should tell you all you need to know about my name. Though another early one was XanatosGambit....Anyway, since then I have struggled mightly to prevent TVTropes from ruining my life, and in fact, I found [[TVtropesWillEnhanceYourLife the opposite to be true]]. I've learned so much about literary devices and story telling since coming to this site. Particularly vocabularly; it's easier to brainstorm now that I have quick references to character traits and plot elements.

Member of the former {{CHOPSTICKS}} group and in the past I completed a wick clean up for YamatoNadeshiko. Also the self-proclaimed curator of BeyondTheImpossible and working on its clean up; I removed over six thousand old definition/misuse wicks before I finished. Now I'm on the look out for future misuse. I also do clean up on XanatosGambit and brought it down to the 800s while spreading ThePlan. Yeah, I've got a lot on my plate.
