The one where the post has a pink background is a Mod Hat post. If you see a post like that you'll know the Mod is speaking as a Mod, with the authority of that position. The background is meant to make the post stand out. Most Mods have a Mod Hat avatar that's different from their main one. Usually there's some reference to the idea that the Mod is wearing their official Mod Hat unfortunately, such hats don't actually exist as physical objects.
I wanted one with Vimes wearing a helmet. I thought the one with the crossbow was good because it's a bit more serious than my main avatar. And yeah, I'm the sort of person who'll actually think about this stuff and try to decide whether the crossbow is too threatening and so on. (I'm still unsure about that...)
Vimes always stroke me as the kind of guy who ligs a cigar in a fight to then take it out in somebodys face. Vimes in general is threatening.
Hello everyone. I'm Bast/Loren, from the tiny little country of Portugal. I've been browsing through TV Tropes for quite a while now, but only Got Known recently, with only a few small edits made.
I enjoy (mostly detailed and freeform) forum roleplaying, gaming and reading. And watching too much TV.
Also, Vimes. Vimes is awesome. So is Discworld. So was Terry Pratchett.
HELLO BAST, MY FELLOW EUROPEAN
GLORY BE TO THE UNION
HAVE FUN HERE

YES, YES, GLORY TO THE OLD WORLD
Edit: Also, I've been snooping around you guys' profiles, and am curious about the Troper Wall. How does one create it?
Second Edit: I haven't even created a Contributor page yet, so this would be just for posterior knowledge. ;)

Welcome, cat goddess.
There's that 'edit' button on the top left. I don't know if it does anything but it might be worth checking out.
If you want to create a proper
trope/work page on the wiki, use the Wiki Sandbox instead.
Oh, nah, I'm not that person! ...mostly because I'd be a god. ;)
I think I see what you mean, yeah. Thanks.
Edit: Well, the Markup/bb coding in this site will take getting used to. x) I've edited this post five times already.

Ohey I thought I was in the sandbox.
Now I look silly.
Either way, hello everyone; I'm bored and want to make idle conversation

HEY NEW PERSON
Hello! Hope you have a nice time here!
Hello, I'm this guy from the great 'Chusetts. I've been known for a while now, but I haven't actually visited the forums.
It's a pleasure to be here!
I'm a (trans)guy who's into Steven Universe, Undertale, and Flight Rising!
For shame. I realize that I was doing something delusional. Thank you moderators for making me realize how stupid I was.
Hey guys, I'm Infinity, a high-school freshman who is hopelessly addicted to TV Tropes. I'm not too active on the actual wiki. Forum Games is currently my favorite place to be on the wiki. I like playing games (Team Fortress 2 is my favorite), and watching reviews from people like Yahtzee (Zero Punctuation) on Youtube. I probably won't say much when I post, as I'm not a social person, but hopefully we'll get to know each other better as I spend more time here.

Hello, Infinity. Hope you have fun here!
Hello All, I'm Getbackupagain, I discovered the tropes wiki through looking up random things related to whatever Show/Movie/Book/Game/Fandom/Pursuit I happened to be obsessed with at any given moment, and decided to finally get known.
I get hooked on a Fandom every so often and it kind of consumes me for varying amounts of time, usually relative to the cannon material associated with it, For example, my obsession with Half Life2 and Sherlock lasted for about 2-3 months, while my obsession with Marvel Lasted for years.
That said, I never really become un-obsessed, It just becomes sort of a background process until new material is released, or I find new material.
Of course, a comprehensive wiki about breaking down crazy amounts of pop culture, nerd/geekdom, and fandoms into discrete elements and examining them was adding fuel to a fire and the rest was (browser)history.
Well, now that I know that this thread exists, allow me to ramble on about myself for a little while:
Hello all. I'm Delightfully Quirky. Shorten my username however you'd like or just call me by the full thing, it really doesn't matter.
I'm female, I live in Canada and I'm likely younger than most of the people on this site, due to being just shy of sixteen.
I found TV Tropes about a year and a half ago, thanks to a friend who linked me to it one day. The rest is pretty much history: I fell in love with this wiki and have been reading it often since then. However, it's taken me a while to actually getting around to making an account, as you can see. (I'm a grade A procrastinator when it comes to things like this.)
Other than lurking on the internet, my interests include reading (novels, comics, manga, pretty much anything with words in it) and doodling in my spare time. When it comes to fandoms, I'm rather obsessed with Doctor Who, Valve's Portal series and superheroes of all sorts. I'm also an avid cartoon watcher. But I'm mainly just your average dork.
Anyway, it's a pleasure to be here!

Hello, new people! Enjoy your stay here!
Welcome, new peeps!
Enjoy the Fora!
I'm Julia a 'merican high school junior who's been obsessed with this website for years but is generally more the obsessing over things kind of person than the talking kind. I've finally decided to interact with you people ergo, Hi.
My interests include reading (many random books, try me), watching TV (Whedon and everything else), learning trivia, and listening to way too many podcasts.
Sometimes I come off as a pretentious know it all, I prefer to think of myself as quirky.

Hello all, Kylodious here, I actually used to browse the forums and pages around here forever ago, but then my laptop died and so did my activity here, so I came back to see what's changed. Nice to meet Y'all.
