Tink asked me to update the mad scientist t.v. trope page and I agreed. BUT I know I can't do it on my own. Does not help that I was not here from the start OR have completed reading all that back story. The mad sci wars in XXX seconds does help though. This is where you kind folks come in. I need a few things. First off (the easy part) characters names. List them as main and secondary. Just for the main game for now. Probably someone needs to do the people are not around anymore. The last thing for now is any tropes not listed on the list and why it should be added. The list is here:

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/FanFic/TheMadScientistWars?from=Main.TheMadScientistWars

I think it is too big of a job for one person so I need all of you good folks to help me here. I can organize it and update the site, I can't sift through everything for the golden nuggets. You folks tell me he important information and I will piece it together. How does that sound? Hope it is not too much.

Location: Two steps ahead of you
Main: Demothesis
Secondary: Dr. Kinestro

Tertiary: Foigran, Laughingman, E.L.I., Dr. Expend

Missing tropes: Rule of funny: Amino, Kinestro, and Olsen all run on this rule.

rule of cool: Some things seem to work simply because they're too cool not to.

Crowning moment of Awesome: Haven't read enough of the archives for any to pop out at me. But personally Demo's method of scaring off the interpol agents seemed pretty awesome.(could just be biased though)

Crowning moment of funny: Anything with Amino in it.

I'll see what else I can come up with.

I'll be happy to contribute. I kept meaning to work on it, so I already have some stuff to put forward.

Give me a day or two to pull some information together and I'll put it forward.

A tv trope custom made for Dr. Kinestro. DOOOOOOOOM!(TM)

Also for the slimes They're weak to fire so... also why they're weak against fire and poison

Added Character page. There's something wrong with the code for the folders.
It is nowhere near complete, so if you'd like to add/edit your characters, I'd appreciate it.

Sorry, computer illiterate here! I haven't had time to do more than glance at the tropes page today.
Joe the chef belongs to Demo, he's in my folder. Jo as in Josephine, his daughter, is mine. I'll add her in later, no time today.
But the page is looking great! I love seeing more stuff there.

Can we create a YMMV page, or at least remove all the YMMV tropes, or something? The red dots are making me twitchy.

@ Chic: Argh. Knew I was doing something wrong! :oops:
@ Demo: Thank you so, so much. Either I'm an idiot, or the folder code hates me.
