GoBots wiki

A group from TFWiki have started a new project, the GoBots wiki. It will cover GoBots, Rock Lords (This particular page is worth reading even if you have no interest in Rock Lords themselves.),  Robo Machines, and Machine Robo.

Let’s get Crane Robo’s reaction to the news.


Hey, Crane Robo, can we keep this site PG-13?

(Yes, that is an actual screen capture from Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos.)

Here’s a good place to start. The fact the page is about 80% my doing has nothing to do with that judgment…

Confession of a Wikiholic

If I lose track of time, it’s most likely because I was reading a website with huge numbers of pages all linked, which of course any wiki is a great example of. TV Tropes is probably the worst best most time-consuming, but it can also happen with Wikipedia or other reference sites, or on any fandom wiki (of which TFwiki is by far the best in both completeness and style).

Basically, if there’s a subject I’m interested in and a ton of links, this can happen:

(xkcd also did one about TV Tropes, but I can’t remember its title.)

And more often then not, I’m there until I have an external reason to leave; not because I’m “done”.

It’s not entirely a bad thing since I’ve certainly learned things that I’ve been able to apply from some of those sites, but there are definitely times when I just look at a clock and wish I hadn’t spent so long there.
