D'you reckon we should put the real picture of Zoey up with her character profile? We have for most of the others.

No idea either way. I put up the real world photos, but tried to make it come from a Yogscast video (or in Strippin's case from the vlogs of Strippin's girlfriend) rather than tweets. Obviously with Zoey, the most we see of her on camera is a hand and armband so that doesn't really apply in this instance.

I don't think Zoey's going to ever put a real photo of herself up, and honestly I can't blame her.

Er, she put one up in june on her twitter. Its on her page on the Yogscast wiki.

She did? I completely missed that, I haven't been on the Yogswiki for months.

EDIT: Yep, she did. I'd say that we might need her real life photo then.

Is it possible at all to get some kind of separation going on between the Yogscast's Minecraft Personas, and their actual identities? Because while there's a bit of crossover, they're not the same thing.

Example, could we perhaps have the IRL-relevant tropes in a character thread for the general Yogscast Entry, and their Minecraft Persona Tropes in a character thread for the Yogscast Minecraft Series? I get that would mean having two character threads for the same group, and I'm not even sure you should HAVE character threads for real people, but I think some of their in game traits really need to be separated from their real life identities (real Kim is not a flux infected being, Rythian isn't actually gunning of revenge or using Zoey as an emotional crutch, etc.)

I think we have enough problems with everyone fitting under Yogscast IRL. Maybe resolve that first? As a compromise, I'll put a notice saying "please note that this covers both their Minecraft personas and their actual identities".

I'm not entirely sure when Hannah collaborated with Duncan or how that makes them Platonic Life Partners. Was this largely in the PvP maps in 2012 and 2013? Because nowadays, she either does multiplayer games with four or five people, or she largely does horror games (single player, but playing in the same room and alternating controls) with Kim.

And with Duncan, his co-op series for at least the last six months or so have largely been Sjin and, umm, Kim.

I don't think we can call the guy who ate a horse's heart (Lewis) sensible or calm any more. I think Lewis and Simon's sections need a complete overhaul in the post-Tekkit, post-Trucking Tuesday era.

I'm sorry, what? Where is this horse's heart thing? Lewis definitely is a bit more jumpy on occasion though, have to agree there.

Simon needs a rewrite as well. Lewis is not the opposite of chaotic and hammy. He's calmer than Simon, maybe? Comparatively? But he loses his temper or just otherwise acts grumpily (usually towards Simon or buggy games) loads of times.

I am aware that Lewis may not be that sane. The reason he was called the Only Sane Man was because he is comparatively more sane and the only one who actually focuses on the job half the time, compared to Duncan and Simon who are pretty much never focused. We need something to indicate that in his entry.

Can we at least agree that Duncan does not especially "share" the Only Sane Man role with Lewis in Tekkit and Galacticraft, as this page recently asserted?

By "sections" I was largely referring to the description above the tropes, not so much the Only Sane Man trope itself. Specifically, the "Others say that Lewis' calm personality make their videos more entertaining by balancing out Simon's erratic nature. The blue to Simon's red, Lewis is by far the more sensible and cautious of the two." Cautious I'll give you, but Lewis causes just as much mess with cheating Minecraft puzzles and getting pissed off as Simon.

I suppose that's true- my bad. Could I replace it with Sanity Ball for both of them, as their sanity seems to vary?

Hey guys, I'm thinking of shuffling the IRL part around a bit. Not moving it to a separate page, just splitting it up so not everyone is in the "Yogscast IRL" folder, or at least so stuff is organised better.

Perhaps split it up into "Working at Yogtowers", and those who aren't?
captainmarkle

Sounds good to me, actually.

I might consider splitting it as proposed by Kurze. Has anybody got any suggestions? Or any thread they want me to take this to?

I think we're missing a few tropes for Zoey and Ridge. 1) Zoey is insanely peppy, the IRL tropes don't mention her social anxiety or how in many of her non-gaming videos she's very positive and talks about the importance of self-worth. 2) Ridge fired Peva, Tinman, and a Yogscast Server Admin. I know that this is the kind of stuff we don't want to go spreading around, but it's innacurate to say he wasn't really awful about the entire thing. We need to at least add a "bad boss" trope to his IRL information and link it to some of the ways he personally attacked Peva.

We really shouldn't have information or gossip about their personal lives at all. With Zoey's social anxiety, that can at least be considered "in-character" in as much as it describes the persona discussing Zoey's real life during subscriber specials and the "you are awesome" PSA, but the stuff about Ridge, Tinman and Peva? Off-mission for a site about narrative devices. I'm not discouraging you from discussing this in a more relevant setting, mind, it's just that this is tenuously linked to tropes.

Seeing as we have all of the Toms and others doing editing on the main channel and collaborations, does Hannah actually do editing outside of her channel now?

I don't believe she has done so since roughly 'Shadow of Israpony' as she commented on a Reddit post about it last week "This is one of the last things I helped edit for the main channel, along with a few of the Minecraft maps" (http://www.reddit.com/r/Yogscast/comments/1vpnv9/lets_have_a_trott_down_memory_lane/ceverew?context=3)

I don't know if it's out of date or merely specific to the livestreams, but either way, can Lewis' personality with instances like the "taking oil, shove it up your arse and we go into space" really go under "calm"?

Pulled:

Adult Child has been renamed to One of the Kids. In order for this to be an example of the trope, the character's childishness has to be from or demonstrated by interacting with children. This example can be added back with context relevant to the trope if it fits.

Is it fair to compare Sjin's abilities in creative and using several world-editing mods to how smart he is in survival multiplayer?

Should Peva and Tinman be completely removed from the page? They don't provide much information about the Yogscast IRL (or, more importantly to this site, the characters and tropes you'd see in videos) and they're not too fondly... remembered.

Personally I think, more than a year on, its about time. The Yogscast is ever expanding and as mentioned over a year ago, they don't provide much information or 'tropes' of the Yogscast. I'll leave it for a week from today and if there are no objections I'll consider it okay to be removed?

So apparently

are tropes belonging to some character, but since the page was spontaneously reorganized with some tropes deleted in the change, I have no idea who they belong to. Everything else should've been readded correctly.

Sorry... I wanted all of the characters to be on the page and wanted them to be easy to find, but I accidentally deleted some tropes in the process... Again, I apologize...
Darkaros

It's not a problem, I actually like the new format personally, it was just kind of annoying how things got deleted. Pretty much fixed besides these two lost tropes anyway, so no harm done and you made it easier to read.

Ok! Thanks and your welcome for making it easier to read! :)
