Transcendence at TvTropes

I found we have a TvTropes page... anyways, we can add more content to the game's pages and link from various tropes to the game.

I'm getting sleepy - i'd post more otherwise...

Heh, they have an old link to the ships page. Needs update.
My first mod, mostly done, still balance testing.

Did you just start reading TvTropes when I started linking to it :P?

EDIT:

Also, everything has a TvTropes page. Everything.

Wow! That was a wild read through.

Kind of scary, some of the comments there.

I wonder who's been researching Transcendence, to know it, and the community so well.

The trick is, the people posting ARE the community.

Also, linking to TV Tropes is evil! :twisted: [/url]

Okay, whoever wrote the Tropes page has a sarcastic streak as long as the Bolivian Super-highway and as deep as the Marinara Trench. I couldn't stop silently laughing for two minutes; then I wanted the jerk to "feel the force." Have they no respect for the years of work which George and this community have put into this game? And not all of the god-mods are that bad (being a major contributor to that has nothing to do with my defense of god-mods).

Jeoshua. I do not think that there could be anyone in the Trans-community low enough to disparage Transcendence like that author did; at least I hope not!

See the link below to read about the Bolivian Superhighway mentioned earlier.

Ummm... I didn't see anything particularly demeaning about it. Then again, you do have a tendency to take humor wrong (thinks back to the 'centauri beams of death' incident). I just read through it and didn't see anything that would really qualify anything that you were saying, except when taking into account your ways of mis-interpreting what people are saying.
Anyhow:
tvTropes is meant to be a (for the most part) humorous wiki (the writing style is intentionally this way; they even advertise it as such, as compared to the other wiki. Anyways, the articles are written by multiple people.
The page is pretty average by tvTrope-standards, with the exception of the formatting errors (bad wiki-syntax, missing paranthesis, broken links)

Welcome to the internet, my friend. Don't get caught by Rule 34.
