Can a Creepypasta be mixed in with Tearjerker and still be good? I'm surprised there's no tab for that.

I think there's at least one famous story that might have even been a Creepypasta of the Month about some ghost or something, and the comments section was actually filled with people who liked it but thought it was more sad than creepy.

Ironically, there was a Regular Show one where at least one person commented that a dark story that's more than sad than creepy shouldn't be posted on the site, but whatever. :p

Ah nevermind, they were moved to the Heartwarming section instead.

Shouldn't Doors be sadder than heartwarming though?

I deleted "Cupcakes" and "Story of the Blanks" because they're just plain old DarkFics. A creepypasta has to at least TRY to pass itself as real or plausible.

Those two things are different? :?

To me, a Dark Fic may or may not be a subsection of Creepypasta. The wiki itself at least has all sorts of categories, various types of shows and video games being used for Dark Fic.

Hmmm... what would the opposite of Creepypasta be?
09:45:29 AM Jun 25th 2014
Eh, I'm not sure, but Creepypasta is meant to be Nightmare Fuel and some of those are Dark Fics, right?

I guess the opposite of that would just be a Sweet Dreams Fuel thing instead, probably a WAFF (Warm and Fuzzy Feeling) fic. :p

The link to the Lost Silver game is down.

Can I remove Cherrilee's Garden from the works list? It's good and all, but I don't we can start just calling all Grimdark fics Creepypasta.

Wow, looks like one of the admins of the Pasta wiki in One of Us, Fur Bearing Brick has made 139 edits to the page.

Can we please have a "Worm Jeff Saga" series page? When is "critical mass to deserve its own works page" reached?

There's so many tropes with single examples referring only to the Worm Jeff Saga that it looks bad. There's literally tons of creepypasta out there, so either we add some examples from others or we just move those to their own page.

Worm Jeff Saga IS a work and not a genre/category, so giving it its own page would be fine.

The name comes from "Copypasta". Okay then.

Anyone care to share with dumb ol' me what this "copypasta" thing is and how copying something is related to noodles?

It just sound cooler than Copy & Paste.
04:18:55 PM Jan 31st 2013
And I think Copy & Paste/ Copypasta refers to Memetic Mutation of the kind where you send mass emails about a funny quote or cool picure. Just general passing around of stuff.

So then Creepypasta means Creepy C&P? Makes sense. A lot of stories start off with saying they just had to write the story down somewhere which they might have already done beforehand somewhere else, and many creepypastas are not OP.

I didn't really get it either. ^^;

So paste sounds like pasta...? Alright then. :p

Can whoever keeps listing this as a work please quit? Lord of the Rings is a work. Literature is not a work. Candle Cove is a work. Creepypasta is not a work. Get it?

It's being treated as a genre, like Country Music or Metal so it gets listed as a work.

Can we add the now defunct Monolith Forums as a Wretched hive on the YMMV tab? They got so bad the site owner themselves jumped ship and let them die.

What's the deal with this page? the Nightmare Fuel page doesn't link to it anymore. And there's no YMMV page, either.

The page type was changed from "work" to "trope". I've reverted that, since there is a trope list rather than an example one. Should be fixed now.
