Piterpicher is on a break from TV Tropes starting from 19.07.2018 to 01.08.2018 (in DD/MM/YYYY format). If this line isn't changed by 01.09.2018, assume the worst.

Holy fricks Batman, creepypic works everywhere. Even with a caption!

"If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife. So from my personal point of view, get an ugly girl to marry you."
Chorus to "If You Wanna Be Happy" by Jimmy Cool

Hello, this is Piterpicher.

After a year of lurking (or possibly more? I still remember how this site looked like two updates ago), I've joined this site on 03.05.2017. Why did I join? Because there was misinformation that Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is the final FNAF game, when Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location was out. And yes, I became addicted to it like everyone else.

My role in TV Tropes? I just do what I can to improve the wiki. I don't care that much about the forums.

Did you know that according to Website Outlook, TV Tropes is worth over 1.44M$ (as of 22.06.2018)? Yup, yup, that's right.

If you're wondering how to pronounce my nickname, I generally say it like Peter-Pitcher... But I guess Peter-Picker isn't really wrong, either.

Also, I hope that Nintendo Switch will get an internet browser, for mobile editing. My phone is cool, but can't edit. The Switch should be stronger and more helpful. But it's been out for more than a year, and still no browser. Sad.

You may want to check out Willy Beamish Wiki, a wiki I started. I've lost interest in it though, since I prefer TVT over Wikia. I may return to it someday. If I feel like it.

As you can see, one of my biggest flaws is thinking I can take on something big, and leaving it 50% done. Hope that I can change it to 60% someday, though.

I've put these paragraphs in the wrong order, but I don't care about that anymore.

Cool stuff:

    Piterpicher's 5 main goals for TV Tropes (max can be 5) 
This is a list of goals I'll try to work on and hopefully finish them someday. While clearing them is not urgent, it will ensure sustainable development for TVT. The list is limited to 5 to put some focus.
  1. Putting images to all characters on Skylanders Playable Characters.
  2. Ascending Willy on Wheels on Pantheon.Criminal Actions.
  3. Raising the amount of Game Jolt games covered on this site. There's more than 80, I want 100.
  4. Making a page on the UsefulNotes.ZX 81.
  5. Helping TV Tropes reach 11311 Video Game articles. (Palindromic prime)

    Trope Launch Pad drafts that need help 
  • Uruguyan Media: The 62nd country media index. Needs hats and examples.
  • Pakistani Media: The 63rd country media index, and this one is made by me. Needs hats and examples.
  • Long Jump Game: A TLP taken by me. Needs hats and examples.

    Specific things I've done on TV Tropes (in other words, achievements)
This editor is a Yeoman Editor +1/4 and is entitled to display this Service Badge.
I've done over 4500 contributions and been 1 year and 1.5 months on this site. More specific stuff can be seen below.

    Personal notes for myself, based on my past mistakes on TV Tropes (can be used as advice for yourself, too) 
  • You do not have to use "Hello, X here" opening your every post.
  • If you're reporting a problematic troper, mention their name.
  • Tell the official policy, not your recommendation.
  • Try to go with the consensus, don't break it all of a sudden.
  • Do not ask for edits on other tropers' pages, even if it's for typos, old indexing or namespacing.
  • Do not use The Wiki That Shall Not Be Named as a source of information.
  • If you're trying to defend a bad page's existance, the "It's pointless, but it won't harm anybody" argument won't achieve much.
  • It's best to create pages before asking for disambigs that contain them.
  • A duplicate image is when the same image appears shared between two of these: A trope page, a work page, a subpage, but not a character page.
  • Red Links to non-existent work pages are okay, but not to creator pages.
  • Do not use indexes as tropes.
  • Do not make big posts with links with your phone, it won't handle them.
  • Do not ask moderators to move pages in the main namespace. It causes annoying ghost wicks. Use TLP instead.
  • Do not bump too many TLP drafts at once. It will look suspicious if you do that.
  • It's better to send messages in your own words rather than using the Issue Helper.

    Tropes that apply to me 
  • Achievement System: A fan of these in games. Since TV Tropes doesn't have one (there were badges for service once, but they're gone), I use my tropers page as a place for achievements.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Yeah. Some think I'm high.
  • Grammar Nazi: More of a Namespace Nazi, though typos are also very annoying for me.
  • Mouthful of Pi: Downplayed. I can recite at least 36 digits from memory. Since some know over 100000, that's hardly an accomplishment.
  • Ninja Editor: Has anyone seen a post made by me that wasn't edited at least once? Alright, this may have gotten slightly easier, so try to find two in a row.
  • Old Shame: Probably most of my edits before reaching the Journeyman Editor +1/2 level (9 months and 3000 edits). I think I was a bit cowardly and didn't get the policies back then.
  • Single-Issue Wonk: Zig Zagged Trope. It's tough for me to focus on one Wiki thing at a time, but when I do, I put a lot of attention into it.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: My methods for improving TVT may be extreme at times. But they are meant to improve it.

    My own quality scale for works and tropes in wicks, inspired by Wikipedia 
Note this only includes works and tropes. It's also just a rough guide, not a policy.
  • Stub Class: 0-3: A trope/work must have 4+ wicks to show it has 3+ wicks and at least 1 index. If it doesn't, the page creator is probably lazy and the page may be cut. Recreation is possible, though.
  • Start Class: 4-14: The bare minimum point that allows for likely survival, but the page likely deserves expansion.
  • C Class: 15-34: The page is healthy and may have multiple editors. However, it may still deserve expansion.
  • B Class: 35-99: Very much a healthy page, warrants little concern, but growth may still be possible.
  • B+ Class: 100-499: The page is not just healthy, but refined. You can still expand it if you want to.
  • A Class: 500-999: The page is big and refined. May benefit from splits for size or prose updates, and of course, more expansion.
  • Good Article Class: 1000-1499: The page has really expanded and upgraded. Almost certainly folderised or even split. Expansion could help, but it's far from necessary.
  • Bronze Medal Article Class: 1500-2999: The page has became really long. It may not be a good thing completely though, since with size comes misuse and novice editors.
  • Silver Medal Article Class: 3000-5999: The page has became extremely long. It has a bunch of subpages, a bunch of indexes, a bunch of examples... And probably a bunch of mistakes too. Help the page get quality to go along with quality.
  • Gold Medal Article Class: 6000-11999: The page has became even fricking longer. It is so big the examples and description are probably overwhelming. Help check for misuse or mistakes.
  • Platinum Medal Article Class: 12000+: The page has became unbelievably long. And it may only grow. Yikes. The amount of work that may need to be done for quantity is immeasurable. Just do what you can.

    The Pyst song lyrics 
I'm sick of livin' in my livin' room,
I just can't see the shitty broom!
(Doo doo doo) I am pyst!
(Doo doo doo doo) Man, I just can't change my ugly mood,
Yes, I am one unhappy dude!
I'm pyst! (He's unhappy, so unhappy)
I could turn on my big TV,
But no one on there looks like me!
Makes me pyst! (Doo doo doo)
I change the channel, switch the switch,
Get the same old stupid bitch! (Change the channel, change the channel)
Man, I'm pyst!
A bunch of ugly superstars
Tryin' to sell me shoes and cars! (Cars and shoes, that's bad news)
Whoa, I'm pyst!
Maybe my ill mood would improve
If I put Egyptian food in a tube!
Like they say, just do it!
I could go bowling but I lost my ball,
I could hunt pigeons but I got 'em all!
I could go fishing with that other guy
But the only thing that bites
Is mosquitos and flies!
I could go to friends at work
But the boss is such a total jerk!
It gets me pyst! (Total jerk)
I'm changing tires, pumping gas
Which I've got in gobbling class!
Oh, pyst! (Gobbling class)
But every day I punch the clock
And still I'm hearing really hot!
Man, I'm pyyyst... (And he's pyst)
From 9 to 5, I bust my butt
Work like a slave and all for what?
I'm super pyst!
Is there some way I could change my luck?
I saw some aliens in my pickup truck!
Right now, my elders, are drinking champagne
Maybe I could have chocolate everyday!
Yeah... Now, hold on!
It may not be that bad...
Maybe it's my attitude about being too negative
Bumming myself out...
After all, I do have six channels on TV every which way
I have a room full of my medals
I know what to do if it rains
I have an athlete's body
But I still have athlete's foot
And I have a girlfriend who appreciates me
For who I am
Yeah... hey!
I feel so relifted
I'm gonna take me a little nap
Hey, ya highness!
Get your robot off that beast dog
Clean em' before they walk away
But baby!
This is supposed to be my castle
And all I get is pain and hassle!
(I'm so pyst) I'm pyst! (It's his castle)
You may really be the king
But I'm the queen so dig this thing!
Now I'm pyst! (Dig it dig it dig it dig it dig it dig it)
But I am old, get on my case
I only know one in my face
I'm pyst and I've got a right!
Yeah, I've got a left!
So wake up, smell the coffee time,
Go to work or you're history, piston!
Oh yeah?
But maybe I'm lifeless and you'll help, will ya?
And you'll be hootsin' tootsin' alone, big guy!
But I could be there and go from distant lands?
So go away!
This TV is nothing but trouble!
Lemme help with that!
Ugh, this is fun!
Yeah, go to the kitchen and make me ham, baby!

So long! Bear well!
