Outskirts Battledome:

I didn't know you guys were tropers!

I used to post there with the user name C. Hook. All good things come to an end, and I was permabanned eventually for acting like a jackass.

I joined the wiki, but I freely admit I was not a good contributor (In fact, I was one of the worst; I think I created like 5 character pages, tops). Still, it was really fun being part of the community, and I miss all the old folks who were there when I left. It's nice to see people I remember like Anti-Existence and Abigail are still posting. I guess it's not been that much time, but it just feels like a lot.

You guys rock, no matter what some of the others here might think.

[up]Did you? Because I can't find it.

I have been visiting OBD a lot recently. I find the wiki to be a lot like ED, in that as long as you take everything with a grain of salt everything's good. As for the forums, other than the usual trolls I don't see anything wrong in terms of members.

There's two things that grind my gears: the rule that all matches have "bloodlust" until otherwise stated, and that on the wiki I frequently see traits like "unwilling to kill" and "forgiving" as weaknesses. I mean, the whole fun of Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny is the collision of different personalities. Take that away, and all the matches become nothing but statistics and power sets. And that shit's just boring.

I sometimes visit there, but often it's hard finding a thread where I'm familiar with both the participants.

So...what ever happened to the page?

Really now, I want to know. Heck, I'll make another if it's alright with anybody here.

[up]I actually completely forgot about this, and I still visit the site. Go ahead and make a page. Seeing as how it appears to be the biggest website devoted to Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny, a page would be fitting.

Why not.

Opinion myopia and douchebaggery all around in the OBD and OBD wiki. Articles are also biased as hell.

Wow. That was rude. Too many of this kind of thump will bring a suspension. Please keep it civil.Thumped.

Did the wiki suddenly die or something? O_o I can't access any pages.

What'd you just say about my hair?!
Here is the reason.

Ah, so it just broke temporarily.

What'd you just say about my hair?!
Well, apparently some stuff was lost too...

Well, it's going to be restored eventually.

Though I wonder what actually caused it to break.

What'd you just say about my hair?!
Yes, that is puzzling.

By the way, I should probably explain why I'm posting here. I recently Joined under the name ThanatoSeraph.

So hi OBD troper people.

Seeing as how the OBD is currently going through a PG phase, I figured it would be a much better atmosphere to make a trope page.

We no longer have articles mocking people (so you can't use that excuse), and if there is outside drama, just lock the page but don't delete it. That way work won't be lost.

I'll try to get on making one.

Has the wiki lost all its negative articles? Even the ones on Phenomenol and such?

Welp, I've checked the wiki and even the article on Phenom is gone.

What the shit.

Have they taken out all of the Opinion Myopia and Complaining About Shows You Don't Like bullshit on the OBD wiki?

What'd you just say about my hair?!
How does one go about petitioning opening a locked page?

As it is, I can't start the page.

Nexus, the wiki (as serious as it is) is supposed to also be a tongue and cheek alternative to other "serious" wikis of the same nature. Which is (part of the reason anyway) why we get a lot of viewers.

Don't use the Complaining about shows and Opinion excuses too. Other wikis tend to have that problem as well, so I don't see how that makes us any different.

pyr0h1tman 8, maybe we should ask around. I still think that the "outside drama" excuse could have been handled the same way they handled other pages in the past. (ie, locking it to members that could cause problems).

Yeah, I was just wondering who exactly I should go to to find out. I'll check to see if there's a thread in Wiki Talk for this sort of thing.

Okay, I've asked that the page be unlocked in the thread for it. Let's see how this goes.

Thanks, but I've already put it there. Turns out that it's fine to do The Outskirts Battledome, but not just Outskirts Battledome.

I've copied Azraelfinistar's draft from the last trope page.

We now have a trope page. Feel free to edit.
