I was met with quite a fright just now.
If you've clicked the link on my profile page, you probably know that my brother was killed a few months ago. He very briefly was on this wiki as Swedishlemon. I've been trying my best to deal with the grief and heartbreak, and, in the hopes of finding some kind of nostalgia or something written by him, I looked up his username.
As you can see on his profile page, the content has been written as though his brother had died and that he was hunting the killer. I thought that this must have been a mean spirited prank by one of his friends, or a strange memorial by one of my other brothers, both of whom could've plausibly accessed his account, so I looked at the edit history for the page and found that it…Read more >
Today I was looking for one of my older trollpastas, Death and the Silver Prison, which I had linked on my user page. Upon clicking the link, it brought me to a 'closed wiki' page on Wikia. Just to verify that it wasn't my own poor spelling, I googled it, and found that, in fact, trollpasta wiki is closed for some reason.

What happened? Why is it closed? There was some legitimate humor buried somewhere in all that EVIL PATRIXXX, right?
And no, I'm not saying "Oh no everyone likes Slenderman and Jeff The Killer and I think they're overrated!"
I'm talking about my own work. I personally thought one of my stories was a great story about perspective shifts (to them, we're the "monsters"), and no one has quoted it or done a youtube narration, or reposted it. Now, normally I wouldn't care - I wasn't writing to gain notoriety in the first place - but, another story of mine has been both reposted and narrated, Always Look Behind You. There's a thing about that story though: I think it's actually really dumb, some of my worst writing yet. Still Winter, which I consider a decent, but incredibly cliched, is also narrated and reposted. Worse yet, Death and The Silver Prison and That …Read more >
Many of you have probably noticed my inactivity, I'm really sorry about it, my life has just been very busy as of late. Again, I'm very, very sorry, but I'm probably going to be inactive for a few more weeks, and hopefully I'll be less busy then. I'll still be in contact with those of you who know my AIM or Skype. I'll stop by chat once in a while if I can, but no promises on that.
If you're wondering why I'm inactive, all I can say is something very vague: there are things that are more important to me than the wiki at the moment, and they require a lot of my time and attention.

I would kindly request that when you ban a user for not updating the article listing, that you add their page to the article listing for them, because they can't exactly do it while banned, and they sure as hell won't do it when they come back. I've been noticing an increasing number of situations where a user is banned for not updating the article listing, but the admin who banned them doesn't add the article; unless it's really, really, really bad(in which case, delete it), please update the article listing for the user you banned, so that sloshy doesn't have to do it.
Update the AL when you post a story.
