Describe Anonymous User here.
Genderfluid Troper from Colorado. Has Asperger's Syndrome (no, it's not self-diagnosed).
I'm also into typography, and I'm probably the only troper who owns a copy of the 1923 American Type Founders Specimen Book.
I have also added images to these pages (most of them are logos, most taken from Wikipedia):
- ABC Family
- Animal Planet (replaced old logo with 2008 one, hideous as it is)
- The BBC
- Cable News Network
- The CW (replaced off-kilter logo with correct one)
- Food Network
- Fox News Channel (predates the locking of the page)
- Happy Tree Friends (replaced picture of Cuddles of one with almost the whole cast; the image predates the addition of Lammy to the cast)
- Hasbros The Hub (replaced logo crowded with the channel's "stars" with one of just the logo)
- Vanity Plate's Nightmare Fuel page
- The Weather Channel
- Wikipedia (replaced 2003 logo with 2010 one; obviously, this predates the page's locking)
And these pages:
I've refrained from doing something like this because I found it a little self-indulgent, but I've decided to bite the bullet and do it anyway (it'll keep expanding). There are two "selves" here, for I (intentionally or not) come off very differently on the two sides of the site:
- Bi the Way
- Cloud Cuckoolander (sometimes)
- Easily Amused: Probably a bad thing.
- Fleeting Passionate Hobbies: Oh god yes.
- Freaky Is Cool: A subscriber to this line of thinking, may or may not actually fit it.
- Gannon-Banned: If you've seen "font" switched out for "typeface", chances are I made that change.
- To get this cleared up, one design is a "typeface". A variant on it is a "font" (at least now it is; in the days of metal type a "font" was a different size of one design).
- Glurge Addict
- I Hate Past Me
- Nightmare Fetishist: To an extent. I am enamored of some dark/creepy things, but not a lot.
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Is admittedly prone to this.
- all lowercase letters: Frequently.
- Beam Me Up, Scotty!: For those wondering, no, I did not coin the term "wonderposting". Glenn Magus Harvey did, and I stole it from him because I liked it.
- Cluster F-Bomb: "Fuck" is my favorite swear word, and I probably use it all too often.
- Colbert Bump: Along with Central Avenue and The Mighty Anonym, administered one of these to My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic in February, at least there.
- G-Rated Drug: Caffeine.
- Memetic Mutation: "I knew who made this thread before I even clicked on it", a phrase I originated, has found its way here (I didn't add it, if you're wondering).
- Official Couple: Became one with Central Avenue.
- Running Gag: Shipping me with Central Avenue, with whom I share many things in common; this predates the above by almost a year.
- Sure, Why Not?: My adoption of the nickname "Anonus", given to me by Black Dove.
- Live-Action TV:
- Western Animation (this list is probably a bit short):
- Video Games:
- New Media:
- Newspaper Comics
Note: none of these fit the real definition of Sock Puppet, as in someone pretending to be a separate user. These are only used for goofing around on the forum.
- Giovanni Battista
- Wizard Duck
- Manonymous User
- Rainbow Dash

Describe Brazil Nut Disorder Here.
I'll try, TV Tropes.
It's kinda complicated, and filled to the brim with satire.
To start: SOMEONE made a stupid mistake. Or maybe they just were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Really, who cares?
Unfortunately, the guv'mit, or the guv'mit's superior, gets involved. And, well, SOMEONES not happy at/scared of SOMEONE about the SOMETHING that SOMEONE did even though it's SOMEONE ELSE'S SOMETHING SOMETHING SOMETHING.
Well, this can pretty much go three ways:
Eventually (usually), the fact that It Was All A Misunderstanding comes to light. The government/whatever is approached with the evidence.
There's just so much bureaucracy, too much stupidity to get around.
The dysfunctional Sister Trope to Chance the Gardener, this is a complex and unusual disorder. It may lead to total, utter, hilarious chaos if left unchecked for too long. Related to Chance the Gardener.
This disease can come in three different forms of severity:
Class I (Horatial BND):
Minor mistake, usu. on the part of the victim, usu. leads to imprisonment, often in The Asylum. Not much damage is done, but it's still screwed up.
Class II (Juvenalial BND):
The victim actually may be somewhat responsible here. There's reasonable suspicion. But through red tape, Hobbesian human nature and such, they won't listen to the truth. This may actually do damage, and is where a Gardener Contract may come in in more severe cases.
Class III (Apocalyptial BND):
This usually applies to Planets Eris and Crapsack Worlds Everything comes down at once, repeatedly. Chaos, horrible, hilarious chaos, uncovering the distrubing flaws, Blah, Blah, Blah, You Get The Idea.
Actually, no. You don't. I'm making it sound simpler than it is. I'll try to use some more applicable or related terms:
So, with that vague, incomplete, nigh incomprehesible description, I hope you'll understand how it works and will be able to help once I list the
Class I or Horatial:
- The "Stark Raving Dad" episode of The Simpsons.
Class II or Juvenalial:
- The Fugitive, sort of. Hey. it was good enough for the picture.
- Big Trouble.
- The Iron Giant (Parts of it.)
Class III or Apocalyptial:
Peter: Yup. A root BEER sure hits the spot after school!
Paige: You know, I may even have two root BEERS, I'm so thirsty!
Jason: Say, are you two talking about root BEER?!
Peter: Why, yes, we are talking about root BEER!
Jason: What a coincidence! I was just thinking to myself how good this root BEER tastes!
Roger: Remind me to never again tell the kids what I'm giving up for Lent.
Proper Spelling: root BEER.
- The Simpsons, as above.
On March 20, 2010, in an attempt to quell the shitposting in the old "It Just Bugs Me!" subforum (to no avail), Glenn Magus Harvey created a thread in Yack Fest, named "The Trash Heap of the TV Tropes Forum.". Only two rules were imposed; in a nutshell, one should refrain from making too many posts at a time and one should refrain from making overly-long posts, lest the thread run the risk of deletion/mod intervention.
It was not popular in its early days, however, and would frequently fall off the first page. Then-relative-newbie Anonymous User was quite taken with its premise, as he had longed for a place to post all the nonsense/inanity he wanted to, and resented the thread's unpopularity (though he would realize in retrospect that IJBM was where all the shitposting went). In June of 2010, he "purchased" a significant chunk of Disney's broadcast outlets (e.g. ABC, ESPN), and from there many of his posts were about the absurd directions he as a businessman would go in next.
It was not long before the purchase that Imipolex G came in, but only afterward did he ask Anonymous User if he did not want the thread to die.
After much wittering about imaginary business transactions Jumpingzombie would make occasional appearances, later becoming a full-time regular.
The last to come along was Central Avenue. These four posters, though not the only ones in the thread, dominated it for months and bonded over a shared love of nonsense.
(To Be Continued!)

- You and I seem to have a few things in common. We should be friends or something! —Central Avenue
- Why do you have so little comments on your page compared to CA? ~Tropers/
- Oh hello comments section! squiddleTron here, showing appreciation for this particular anonymous user! 8]
- Hi there! I also have Asperger's Syndrome, also not self-diagnosed. I really hate it when people self-diagnose themselves with it. That's adorable that you and Central Avenue are together. Here's a smiley for you! :) (Let's just pretend it's turned 45 degrees to the right) —Indigo12ash
- Hello! Glad to see that I've met yet another fan of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic! (Forgive me if that was not the reaction you seeked.) Also glad to see a gamer, and am hopeful for you through thick and thin! NES
