Exactly! In fact, getting back to that other index I was talking about where it was to list all of the different shows that switched from 4:3 to 16:9 during their initial run (again, to serve as a sister index to the Switch To Color one I launched), I linked and paraphrased this Ninja Pirate article to try and open people's eyes that they don't lost 25% of the picture from widescreen to fullscreen like so many like to believe, but rather, it's the other way around, it's widescreen that removes parts of the picture, and this Ninja Pirate article illustrates that. It was written in the spirit of TV Tropes . . . or, at least, what used to be the spirit of TV Tropes. That was my first suspension: they nuked the draft and said I was trying to make a complainy trope, which they don't allow, but that was eventually settled out as being a misunderstanding that was blown out of proportion. However, I made it a point to mention to them that I wrote the draft the way I did because I thought it was within the spirit of what TV Tropes was, but they were like, "No, we're not like that, and we never were, we don't tolerate complaints and sarcasm here." Really? Because many of the articles on their wiki are just dripping with sarcasm.

This entire matter seems like an act of petty persecution on their part. I only regret that this happened after all of the time and hard work you've spent contributing to that site. Sad

On the upside, hey...I've gotta appreciate the Arthur LGBT/gender-bending info you managed to set up before all of this happened, since it reflects a good portion of the Slums' finest ongoing research. That, and everything the world would ever want to know about this:

I had a feeling you'd appreciate the GREASER'S PALACE page I launched, Moms. Wink

And yes, I too mentioned to them my many contributions to the site in spite of the few mistakes that I made (and again, there was one mod in particular who said that the edits I've made and my contributions have been good and informative . . . they just "weren't done right"). I felt that if they saw how much I have contributed to the site in the past three years that I've been there (and I think one of the mods said my logs show that I've contributed over 3,000 or so edits to the site), they should see that I'm not as troublesome and problematic as they act like I am. Matter of fact, way back when during my first suspension over the draft I was working that they didn't like, I pointed out the other tropes that I managed to launch successfully to call to their attention that this was the first time I've ever caused a disturbance; the response I got from a mod at that time was, "Oh yeah? Well if your others were so good, how come this one was so bad?" Yeah.

New Tropes
- The Law Firm Of Pun, Pun, and Wordplay
- Later Installment Weirdness
- Switch To Color (I was also working on a sister index for shows that switched from 4:3 fullscreen to 16:9 widesreen during their initial runs, but they nuked it because they assumed it was a complainy trope because of how I had written the draft)

Work Pages
- The Charlie Horse Music Pizza
- Greaser's Palace
- John R. Dilworth
- The Paul Lynde Halloween Special
- Peppermint Park
- Radio

And, just based on a lot of our observations here at the Slums, I also started up a HoYay page for Arthur that was quick to get other contributions.

Here's a couple of work pages I forgot to link that I created for them:
- Clipaholics
- The Big Green

And apparently somebody recently launched a draft of mine into a new trope that I felt wasn't quite ready yet, but there isn't anything I can do about it:
- History With Celebrity

Oy vey (sorry Moms).

I browsing through their wiki a while back and came across another example of how inconsistent they are with their rules, so I brought it to their attention and wanted to know how it is they allowed something on a page, but disallowed it when I contributed the same thing on a page years back. So, guess how they responded? By further suspending my account and, once again, throwing all of my past "offenses" in my face that were long rectified.

What assholes those people are.

My continued condolences over this whole mess. It sounds like that particular site/community just has it out for you over whatever past disagreement happened. It's lousy because it was a site that you contributed so much to and enjoyed, otherwise.

But hey, you'll always have the Slums. santa

And interestingly enough, I happened to recently stumble onto something: Encyclopedia Dramatica has an entire article on the particular mod over there who seems to always have it out for me (and others, evidently), and the article goes into detail of what an asshole he can be to tropers. Nice feeling know I'm apparently not alone.

I learned a while back that it is fun to read, but not to write it.
