A grave announcement from Mister Administrator:

 1151 Drunk Girlfriend, Sun, 23rd Sep '12 12:00:52 AM from Castle Geekhaven
@Jack: No, it'll take a bit to get here. I don't think it'll be here any earlier than Monday, and probably later than that.

Well, I don't think we're getting anything out of Chatty Catty for another 7 hours, and Mr. A has always been unpredictable. I'm gonna knock off for the night. Happy hunting, everyone!

Ok. Good process with the story, but...that video. UGH.

Good afternoon everyOHGODJOESBEENCAUGHTANDTURNEDINTOAPUPPET

I'm not going to have a lot of time for this today, so I think I'll use what I have to update the timeline a bit.
So when I die, the first thing I'll see in heaven is the high score list?

By the way, Joe uploaded pictures of the letters yesterday (first one, second one). Not sure if that's been posted already, but I didn't see it when I skimmed the night's activities.

That first one's handwriting is interesting... Methinks the fictionals themselves are trying to ensure that they get to stay in this world.

Interesting, the first one has Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe to the point of using thorns. I should be able to get in touch with someone later today and see if they and the ~e's are being used correctly or just made up.

Uh, what?
I thought that the letters were from the characters in the videos, too. The Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe may be from the chainmail guy (it came 2 days after the episode 3), and the second one... I have no idea. It came after episode 4, so it may be anyone except for Cinderella. But the rhythmes... I can't help thinking about the cat, but that doesn't make sense. And the plague doctors would write the letter in plural, I think. If those two weren't the same guy...

Meanwhile IRL. I had a terrible sleep. Never mind the puppets - I was more afraid that I was missing out. TV Tropes has never been so effective at ruining my life.

UPD: PM'd Joe's friend on Youtube.

Thou art I, and I am thou...

apparently you guys need to joint together on IRC channel and set up some kind of wiki page or at etlast pastebin file with notes, clues and trailhead

i could help but am currently involved in otp22 ARG so no time

based on number of views i thing that player base is big, bigger as at other smaller arg i participated and we always managed to create nice organized wiki page for future references

btw i came here from unfiction

Comment on ANNOUNCEMENT. Thoughts? Should we create a page on This Very Wiki to help keep up on clues? An entirely new wiki? I don't know a whole lot about IRC, but I think this thread will suffice as far as that goes...

I think it's enough. IRC would be faster (and ninja-free), but it requires to be always logged in, otherwise you'll miss on something. As for the separate pages, it's only useful for keeping what was already confirmed, as the rest is WMG. And let's be honest, there is far more WMG than facts.

UPD: As for the puppet sound, I'm officially done (I may be totally lying =P). There's nothing else I can get out of it. If there is a message, I'm not hardcore enough to get it out.

UPD 2: As a last resort, tried to count the beeps (even though I can't pin down the borders between the series of beeps). Makes no sense.

If you want to track these events here, it would be best to use a dedicated namespace. For example: TheWall.Timeline, TheWall.WTF Videos, TheWall.Table of Contents, and so on.

Uh, what?
[up] I think we should create a separate page for the timeline, that would make perfect sense. It would also be nice to include tropers' actions, like taking the red herring, Sequence Breaking, popular theories being Jossed, etc. Basically, it should be a recap page.

I read the entire thread from 43 to here. But I am confused. What did I lost? I want links. Also, I have an idea of how to deal with the cat, but I must talk to him personally. EDIT 2:[down]Oh, yeah, thought of that, but that was a long time ago.

@Victin: There's a button in the top left corner of the "add post" screen titled "show markup help". It has info on easy internal links — do CamelCase or {{curlybrace}}, and to pothole stuff do [[CamelCase display text]] or [[{{curlybrace}} display text]]. Doing that will mean the arrow-box doesn't show up after every link and break the flow.

I know what you meant; that was formatting help for post 1163.

@Dryu: What about doing TheWall.Timeline as a table? Each row would be a day or part of a day, and there would be columns for Cheshire Cat, Mr. Admin, WMGs, etc..

I'd like to see these pages get made it would be handy enough for those who can't keep up with the thread and videos and such.
Don't believe yourself, believe in me.

Believe in the JR who believes in you.

I've been lurking silently until now. Just sent an e-mail to Mr. A offering to help examine some of the physical spam. I'm not exactly certain of what's going on but I have some suspicions. Someone mentioned IRC. Does TV Tropes have an IRC channel? If so, what network and what hashtag?

I'm wondering about the second letter. At first I thought it couldn't possibly be the cat, because he's not the type to make threats. And then I thought... what if it isn't a threat, but a warning? "Stop now, or die" could be either.

[down]Anura posted them.

I don't think making the timeline as a table is a good idea. It will get messy if we get at least a couple more characters, and I'm pretty sure we will. It would be better as a tree: some finished event as an entry, and its subevents and theories inside. I could try making that, there's nothing else for me to do for now.

UPD: I'll just try posting my version below the table, and the tropers will let the better one live. =]
UPD 2: Dammit, it's locked. =( I was going to use Anura's version as a base, add times, group the whole thing by events, and add theories and troper activity.

Lock conceded. Having now spent some time working on it as a table, I agree that that isn't so good — it's hard enough now, just think what it'll be like if/when we get more characters. Please do implement your idea, Dryu.

[up][up][up]In the comments for the latest WTF (ep5 at time of writing), Joe said he was going to try and get them scanned, then said he coouldn't for some reason and uploaded pictures instead. They're in the video description now. Timestamp said it happened before Puppets went up.
