Oh, and for those who don't know, making an account is extremely easy.

Just type a username and password and voila!  :)

Editing is actually surprisingly easy to boot!

Who the flying **** missed Photos under power armour? It's all they frickin' use :P
Either that, or someone did that mention under Humongous Mecha as an afterthought XD

Feel free to edit in any missing tropes!  :)

It is surprisingly very easy. You can actually edit stuff just by looking at previous works.

my only problem is making it link to the source trope. it doesnt light up blue, even if I copy the name exactly.

Example:

* YourMileageMayVary:

You put a star, one space, and when you type the trope you don't space anything. Also you need to capitalize something when it is capitalized, always.

You need to mention the old universe you I'll stab you in the eye with a fork.

Hey, I can only do so much at one given time. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/TVTropesWillRuinYourLife)  ;)

Besides, it's easier to put things down when they're fresh from memory. Not to mention that some of the older [Silver Age] guys should get in on this too.

Exactly.  I was surprised that there were as many mentions of the Kratair already as there were.  For the most part you need to expect that you need to add your own stuff yourself.

Really though, cool as this is, we need to make an attempt at a wiki again one of these days.

I've been intrigued myself at the idea of writing a visual dictionary series to the GS Spore universe.
yeah, right.

Ahem.

Project Origin?

I'm not sure if it can handle the data, though.

How much is the wiki's max capacity?
Title: Re: The Gaming Steve Universe... in TVTROPES!
Post by: Crazen on January 23, 2011, 02:47:13 am
needs a character page, I don't like inflating it with 20 things that only apply to one person/thing

There's one thing I'd like to know about the GSU.  Is there any Canon Discontinuity?

The dreaded Shucat War. (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=9390.0)

It was such a bloody battle, almost all other races were trampled under the mighty Shucat Empire's treads.  :'( (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SarcasmMode)

Hence the DisContinuity.


There are also some introductory "First Contact" RPs which went into the bin, though the only thing I remember right now is the one involving the Aii'ethyr.

I'm sure there are others, though they're really pretty minor so it isn't really noticeable.

seriously though, we need a character page, with specific sections for each race. otherwise its too cumbersome

True that!

Character page is up, feel free to edit.  :)

I know Crazen's been wanting to have one for quite a while now.   :)

Post by: Crazen on February 15, 2011, 09:01:23 pm
Thank you very much.

I think I have a good structure worked out. it allows for articles about the species with subsections for their specific characters, which are very neccesary in character driven races
Title: Re: The Gaming Steve Universe... in TVTROPES!
Post by: Gnoll on April 16, 2011, 11:40:03 am
Let's do this.

EDIT: Added a couple of my characters.
