->"I finally rest and watch the sun rise on a grateful universe."
->-- Thanos, ''[[Film/AvengersInfinityWar Infinity War]]''

[=TVTropes=] is not a place of intellectual discussion or academic merit. It is not a place for meaningful analysis or for discovering newfound insight into fiction. It is a place of breezy, fun discussion focused on enjoyment of fiction, of sharing perspectives and broadening one's horizons, rather than attempting to stand above others in a vain attempt to prove one's intellect. In the aftermath of the One-Week War, desperate efforts to change external perception of the community, this site's staff allowed, and encouraged, [=TVTropes=] to become a place for the socially-inept to hold "intellectual" discussions. However, a lack of research, and analysis fettered with narrow-world views or a pathetic attempt to vaguely refer to philosophy, sociology and literary history dominated, along with inappropriate use of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. [=TVTropes=] threatened to negatively impact discourse, by giving the false impression that its users were intellectually gifted and whose opinions deserved automatic merit.

My long-standing goal was to dispel the misconception that [=TVTropes=] was a place with academic and intellectual merit. This site was never meant to be taken seriously, and so, I strove to disrupt academic discourse here among the topics that I find relevant. Because Tropers have proven an inability to write, struggling to find the shift key and punctuation on their keyboards, I also have placed a non-trivial effort in stopping the propagation of Troper-specific idiosyncrasies. Tendencies such as unnecessary emphasis, saying "Averted." or "Double Subverted." with full stops, "cueing" things, adding zero content examples and arrogantly believing the trope is self-evident, writing sentences under five words in length and insistently placing punctuation inside spoiler tags, have been removed under my watch. People do not talk like this anywhere else, and a part of my time here was spent discouraging people from talking as though they were speaking a prestige dialect. With my efforts, these individuals have since become discouraged and left. Following this, I have maintained and improved numerous pages to ensure that misinformation and personal idiosyncrasies are not propagated: [=TVTropes=] is supposed to be a place for fun, not for academic discourse. After five years of effort, it is clear that I have done my part: the pages I have curated and edit now express an objective, factual account of the works that they represent, and I leave TV Tropes a far better place than when I found it, such that I may pursue other interests.

!!Pages I've created and maintained

These are the pages that I have created. I have kept a very close eyes on these pages here to ensure that they were clear, concise and informative. Anyone asserting to be these pages' creators are being untruthful. I will immediately respond to any attempts to add unnecessary emphasis, saying "Averted." or "Double Subverted." with extraneous full stops, "cueing" things, zero content examples, writing sentences under five words in length and placing punctuation inside spoiler tags in these pages. Further, anyone found tampering with a page's formatting (such as attempting to switch out Commonwealth spellings or using numbers, rather than spelling out, any number smaller than one hundred), will see their changes swiftly reverted.

[[caption-width-right:350:What did it cost? Not a whole lot.]]

I've been here since 2010, and participated in the One-Week War, so-named for being a week-long effort to remove the ability of tropers to self-aggrandise about their physical and intellectual capabilities. After the One-Week War, Troper Tales were excised from the site, and numerous tropers, with no avenue of letting the world know of their supposed rage-quit this site. The outcome of the One-Week War revealed that TV Tropes was little more than a safe space for pseudo-intellectual, socially-inept anime fans, some of whom having disturbing and unbalanced mindsets. This blemish on TV Tropes was to the site's detriment, and so, desiring to continue showing off their alleged capabilities, Tropers turned towards a new form of self-aggrandisation: writing psuedo-academic discourse and involving technical details in discussions to elevate their own sense of self-importance. Then-administrator @/{{FastEddie}} tolerated, and even encouraged these behaviours: people masquerading as knowing more than they did would give the impression that Tropers were educated, rational people eager for academic discussion, and in turn, this could salvage TV Tropes' damaged reputation, especially since a second "Google Incident" occurred not more than a few months later.

By this point, TV Tropes' anime community became a self-satisfied group that viewed dissent against their opinions as hostility. I subsequently passed the story along, [[https://infinitemirai.wordpress.com/2013/08/14/tvtropes-and-the-rise-of-pseudo-intellectualism/ and the events were published to a well-known blog]] exactly two years after the "One Week War" ended. This article objectively, and insightfully, documents the history surrounding TV Tropes and its anime userbase in particular. [[labelnote:Outcome]] When @/{{FastEddie}} discovered this article, I was given the "Google Ban", the most severe punishment for violating this site's rules. @/{{FastEddie}} deliberately timed this to fit with the anniversary of the first Google Incident, and purported it was for having barn stars on my profile page, but the reality was that he imagined my article to be a threat to the anime fans whom he would count on to restore TV Tropes' reputation.[[/labelnote]] With my experiences, I explained to the blogger that socially-inept anime fans perpetrated actions that negatively impacted anime discussions in other communities, including smaller anime blogs whose authors strive to deliver solid content and discussions. This made it important to continue efforts to disrupt and suppress their actions, lest their opinions became accepted as fact, and so, I tirelessly strove to slow academic discussions here.

Over five years, I have single-handedly stopped tropers from applying real-world principles in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, philosophy, sociology and politics in anime discussion. [[labelnote:Outcome]]Circumventing the "Google Ban" is not difficult, requiring a combination of resourcefulness, meticulous and patience. Resourcefulness allows one to seek alternatives to reinstate themselves without effort (e.g. using public [=WiFi=] to register a new account and signing in from multiple locations to obfuscate one's main IP address). Being meticulous means keeping an eye to details: small difference in writing style, tone and even spelling can be enough to throw off pursuers. Patience allows one to slowly remove detrimental ideas and edit-war with single-minded tropers over a span of months or even years, without suffering immediate discovery. I used variety of shadow accounts and a combination of trade-craft to evade detection. I return on the anniversary of my ban and the first Google Incident to openly mock @/{{FastEddie}}'s outdated, ineffective methods.[[/labelnote]] I disrupted academic discussions in the forums, disproved analysis of anime and removed technical information other tropers brought up. Attempts to bring technical detail into discussion and work pages were suppressed with efficiency: by fact-checking and verifying my own claims, backing them with hard evidence, it became clear to other tropers that they could no longer impose their personal interpretations on events and observations in anime. In its place, I implemented concise and clear writing, all the while forcing tropers to defend their analysis. That ultimately led them to stand down because they had no justification or rationale beyond trying to sound smarter than they were. One by one, tropers began standing down, realising they were putting their feet in their mouths frequently, and began exploring other topics that would not involve technical detail, or else lessened their activity.

With a significant reduction in pseudo-academic analysis and a fixation on technical details (or more appropriately, ill-researched technical details that falls apart on closer inspection), the end result now is a TV Tropes whose users are no longer taken seriously: most of the academically focused individuals have gone, unable to gain momentum with their falsehoods or paint the impression they are meritorious of attention, of having opinions worth considering. Consequently, my work is done. There is little for me to handle now: so it's time to call it quits on my terms. I'm not too terribly worried what is to follow, as it is unlikely that anyone has the resources or dedication to turn TV Tropes back into a place for academic discourse again. I have now directly impacted the creation of a breezy, fun wiki and forum by, in effect, blocking out opportunity for egotistical anime fans to show off, and in doing so, have left this site in a much better condition than when I found it. I am not expecting @/{{FastEddie}}, or anyone else here, to thank me for this, but with the threat to the anime community under control, I am content to sit back and watch the sun rise over a grateful universe.

Attempts to bring technical detail into discussion and work pages were suppressed with efficiency: by fact-checking and verifying my own claims, backing them with hard evidence, it became clear to other tropers that they could no longer impose their personal interpretations on events and observations in anime. In its place, I implemented concise and clear writing, all the while forcing tropers to defend their analysis. That ultimately led them to stand down because they had no justification or rationale beyond trying to sound smarter than they were. One by one, tropers began standing down, realising they were putting their feet in their mouths frequently, and began exploring other topics that would not involve technical detail, or else lessened their activity.

By this point, TV Tropes' anime community became a self-satisfied group that viewed dissent against their opinions as hostility. I subsequently passed the story along, [[https://infinitemirai.wordpress.com/2013/08/14/tvtropes-and-the-rise-of-pseudo-intellectualism/ and the events were published to a well-known blog]] exactly two years after the "One Week War" ended. This article objectively, and insightfully, documents the history surrounding TV Tropes and its anime userbase in particular. [[labelnote:Outcome]] When @/{{FastEddie}} discovered this article, I was given the "Google Ban", the most severe punishment for violating this site's rules. @/{{FastEddie}} deliberately timed this to fit with the anniversary of the first Google Incident, and purported it was for having barn stars on my profile page, but the reality was that he imagined my article to be a threat to the anime fans whom he would count on to restore TV Tropes' reputation.[[/labelnote]] With my experiences, I explained to the blogger that socially-inept anime fans perpetrated actions that negatively impacted anime discussions in other communities, including smaller anime blogs whose authors strive to deliver solid content and discussions. This made it important to continue efforts to disrupt and suppress their actions, lest their opinions became accepted as fact, and so, I tirelessly strove to stem academic discussions here.

Over five years, I have single-handedly stopped tropers from applying real-world principles in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, philosophy, sociology and politics in anime discussion. [[labelnote:Outcome]]Circumventing the "Google Ban" is not difficult, requiring a combination of resourcefulness, meticulous and patience. Resourcefulness allows one to seek alternatives to reinstate themselves without effort (e.g. using public [=WiFi=] to register a new account and signing in from multiple locations to obfuscate one's main IP address). Being meticulous means keeping an eye to details: small difference in writing style, tone and even spelling can be enough to throw off pursuers. Patience allows one to slowly remove detrimental ideas and edit-war with single-minded tropers over a span of months or even years, without suffering immediate discovery. I used variety of shadow accounts and a combination of trade-craft to evade detection.

untruthful. I will immediately respond to any attempts to add unnecessary emphasis, saying "Averted." or "Double Subverted." with extraneous full stops, "cueing" things, zero content examples, writing sentences under five words in length and placing punctuation inside spoiler tags in these pages. Further, anyone found tampering with a page's formatting (such as attempting to switch out Commonwealth spellings or using numbers, rather than spelling out, any number smaller than one hundred), will see their changes swiftly reverted.

My long-standing goal was to dispel the misconception that [=TVTropes=] was a place with academic and intellectual merit. This site was never meant to be taken seriously, and so, I strove to disrupt academic discourse here among the topics that I find relevant. With my efforts, I have maintained and improved numerous pages to ensure that misinformation and personal opinions are not propagated: [=TVTropes=] is supposed to be a place for fun, not for academic discourse. After five years of effort, it is clear that I have done my part: the pages I have curated and edit now express an objective, factual account of the works that they represent, and I leave TV Tropes a far better place than when I found it such that I may pursue other interests.

My long-standing goal was to dispel the misconception that [=TVTropes=] was a place with academic and intellectual merit. This site was never meant to be taken seriously, and so, I strove to disrupt academic discourse here among the topics that I find relevant. Because Tropers have proven an inability to write, struggling to find the shift key and punctuation on their keyboards, I also have placed a non-trivial effort in stopping the propagation of Troper-specific idiosyncrasies. Tendencies such as unnecessary emphasis, saying "Averted." or "Double Subverted." with full stops, "cueing" things, adding zero content examples and arrogantly believing the trope is self-evident, writing sentences under five words in length and insistently placing punctuation inside spoiler tags, have been removed under my watch. People do not talk like this anywhere else, and a part of my time here was spent discouraging people from talking as though they were speaking a prestige dialect. With my efforts, these individuals have since become discouraged and left. Following this, I have maintained and improved numerous pages to ensure that misinformation and personal opinions idiosyncrasies are not propagated: [=TVTropes=] is supposed to be a place for fun, not for academic discourse. After five years of effort, it is clear that I have done my part: the pages I have curated and edit now express an objective, factual account of the works that they represent, and I leave TV Tropes a far better place than when I found it such that I may pursue other interests.
