Under Artistic License: Law, it says that the president wouldn't be able to appoint a Vice President, as the Speaker of the House of Representatives would succeed him. This is not the case (at least since the 25th amendment); if the Vice President dies or is impeached, the President can appoint a Vice President as long as it's confirmed by a 3/4ths majority by both houses of Congress. In theory, one could infer that the nomination was confirmed and Chuck Goodrich became VP in a wholly legitimate way. I'm new to this whole business and assume this is a way to get something like this changed?

If you want it changed then change it, but remember to state your reasoning in the edit reasons section.

On the character page, should Mitzi have McNinja listed in her entry?(Dan does) I don't think her nationality is stated(Other than not being from a long line of ninjas like Dan is), and the name Mitzi is german.

And on the subject of names, should Aerith and Bob be added to the main page, since you have Dan(common) married to Mitzi(not common).

It's not a generic name, but it's hardly a fantastic name.

And yes, obviously she should have McNinja listed. She's clearly not Japanese.

Archive and Main Page of the comic *explicitly* states that Issue 0.5 IS NOT starting the whole story, should be NOT read first, and should be read between Issue 2 "So What IS A McNinja?" and issue 3 "There's Raptor in My Office!", or at least after first one.

Anyone else notice a positive plaugue of subjective tropes cluttering up the main article ever since it got split into subpages? I won't say that there wasn't any of this earlier, but it's definitely worse now.

I see a lot of stuff needing to be split off, like Shout-Out and Nightmare Fuel. Someone just needs to do the work.

Because Crowning MUSIC of Awesome only has one or two entries, I heavily recommend we don't put it on the Crowning MOMENTS of Awesome page, where it will easily get lost in the shuffle. If it starts to get 4-5 entries, sure...but it's not worth deleting because it "has its own page" when, in fact, it neither has nor needs its own page. kthx.

It's a subjective which never goes on main articles, period. Put it on YMMV. Those are the rules of the wiki, not your choice whether or not it's "worthwhile"

Jan 26th 2011 at 8:29:03 PM •••

Wouldn't it go on the Crowning pages, not YMMV?

In any case, I apologize for being flippant about it—I didn't realize I could split the example into Magic Music and other things. Thanks

You can make a Music page if you want. That's entirely up to you.

Am I the only one who thought the Axe Cop crossover sucked? I stopped reading it because it seemed to go like:

Axecop: My villain is being evil! I need an ally.
Doc McNinja: You have summoned me in a manner ridiculous even by the standards of my own comic.
Axecop: Help me stop my villain while I tell you blandly how he is evil.

And etc. I gave up after the first two pages of Axe Cop's part because it read like it was written by an overexcited and unimaginative six year old. And Dr Mc Ninja is one of my favorite comics for how silly it is; Axe Cop just seems so...stupid.

...Okay. A quick look at the Axe Cop page shows that apparently it is written by a six-year-old.

I guess that explains that.

Discussions regarding the quality of a work do not belong on this page. Try writing a review.

Aug 30th 2010 at 3:28:49 PM •••

My mind is officially blown. I always suspected that geeks could be entertained even by a six-year-old's imagination, but I never thought someone would actually prove it!

Sep 1st 2010 at 12:02:44 PM •••

I wasn't going to write a review because, as I said, I couldn't read through the whole thing. I just wanted to see if anyone else shared the opinion.

There was great outcry for a crossover between the two comics. It's fine to dislike it if you don't like Axe Cop, but the entire point is to play up the essential absurdity. It was clearly odd, but not what I'd think of as "bad". Just very, very random.

Can we get rid of the Villain Ball entry? Over 3/4 of the example is in strikeout tags, and aside from underestimating the importance of Old McNinja, Rayner's plan was fairly well thought out.

Valid point, and I cut the entry for those reasons.

In regards to this: Getting Crap Past The Radar: This exchange between Doc's former mentor and his gorilla receptionist Benjamin Franklin: I need to see the Doctor immediately. Judy: [signing] He's seeing patients. You're going to have to wait. Benjamin Franklin: Judy, I am being stalked by a horse. A spooky horse. Judy: Oh, just one second! I'll get the Physician's Desk Reference! I'm sure "spooky horse" is covered in there! Hm. Doesn't look like it. But this is the 2006 PDR. Maybe it's in the 2007. Benjamin Franklin: Why don't you look up "witch gorilla"? Judy: Nothing. Sorry. Benjamin Franklin: It might be spelled with a 'B'.

I know its a bit picky of me to point this out, but its a webcomic, there is no editorial control or Moral Guardian to answer to. I guess he's getting this in under his own standards regarding language in his comic. Thoughts?

Well, he has shown standards in keeping his comic fairly well PG from a naughty language point of view, and Moral Guardians for the internet most definitely do exist. But more to the point, just because nobody's actively censoring you doesn't mean you aren't still Getting Crap Past the Radar.

Jun 21st 2010 at 4:52:08 PM •••

Go read the article. I just did. The trope is about sneaking naughtiness past the censors. You see, censors can bleep out your bad words or tell you you can't air something (depending on the network, time of day, and nation its being aired on.) Its a separate group of people you're trying to sneak this past who actually have the power to stop it if they detect it.

Chris Hastings can print a naughty comic any time he wants to. He simply chooses not to. Its a personal decision. And while there may be Moral Guardians for the internet, they can't stop him from printing whatever he wants (except maybe in some extreme cases like if his comics somehow amounted to cyberbullying or copyright infringement, etc.)

By that logic, no webcomics examples can go on GCPTR. Which is interesting, as the page lacks them. I wonder if self-rating (e.g., most comics are deliberately "PG" even though there's no explicit system for controlling them) counts in this context; it might be a good topic for a forum discussion. Anyway, the content of a comic can affect ad sponsorships, and a comic author sneaking stuff past his/her own self-set standards has to count for something.

Create the namespace markup like so: Characters/The Adventures of Dr. McNinja. Click it and edit to start the page. You should copy the markup from other character sheets for consistency.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
