Thanks, bro. I'm glad you like it. I had no idea you knew about Vocaloid. XD It's actually a scene from Tales of Graces f, and one character has an alternate costume of Vocaloid's Hatsune Miku in the Japan version. I hope it comes over to the US.

I'm thoroughly impressed, bro. No joke. I enjoy that song quite greatly, too. XD Sprinklemisthasn't changed his signature in a long time. 00:37, April 17, 2012 (UTC)

If it's no hassle, could you meet me in chat? Nothing particularly urgent, of course. Sprinklemisthasn't changed his signature in a long time. 19:15, April 17, 2012 (UTC)

Literally or figuratively? I don't see you, yet. XD Thanks for coming on. Sprinklemisthasn't changed his signature in a long time. 19:19, April 17, 2012 (UTC)

Aw, you remembered! Thanks Brandy! Your birthday's coming up as well, so we'll both be legal adults real soon. Eek, I'm an adult! That's a scary thought. But yeah, thanks a lot! Laylaamong other nicknames 21:04, April 17, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, bro. My activity has been down a little, but I was meaning to thank you for the support of all the TDeceptionI characters on your talk page. :) Sprinklemisthasn't changed his signature in a long time. 01:24, April 29, 2012 (UTC)

Happy birthday, dude! I almost forgot about this, honestly, but I wanted to pass the message along, since I remembered. Also, happy belated birthday to Layla, whose birthday, I was unfortunately rather busy, during. Hooray! You're both legal adults, now!- The Anonymous User 04:34, April 29, 2012 (UTC)

Well your input/ideas/help on the story has been huge, man. I'm really grateful for it, and I want to show that you helped on even bigger of a level than usual. I figured out the order since Brody was at the top. I have been wondering about your opinion on the story, but haven't asked, since I don't want it to seem like I'm just worried about comments. I'm not. XD Sprinklemisthasn't changed his signature in a long time. 01:25, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Brandbro. Since I'm a little late, Happy Belated Birthday! Sorry for being late. The economy and traffic, you know. Jake R Chilling... 01:29, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

I forgot to mention that I figured out it was in order of likage from Brody being on the top of the page. And thanks, bro. I'm glad it's toward the top. I feel good about this story, so I'm glad you moderately like it. That means a lot. :) I am now curious as to what has moved around, though. Sprinklemisthasn't changed his signature in a long time. 01:32, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, sorry about that. T_T Believe me, I definitely knew about it. Lil even mentioned it to me before she acknowledged it.. I think my plan was to just tell you happy belated birthday in chat, but that opportunity never really arose. Well, Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you had a fabulous day and did something memorable for it. Sorry I didn't say so sooner. -Laylaamong other nicknames 19:23, May 2, 2012 (UTC)

I saw Information Box's blog about Lulucas. I can recall one previous incident of this type, maybe a few months ago. I don't remember who was involved, but I do remember how the incident was handled: one of the admins deleted the blog--blogs like that do, after all, constitute harrassment, whatever the provocation--and I warned the poster to not bring outside conflicts here. No action was taken against the target of the blog, who had (and has) minimal activity here anyway. To be honest, I don't know what IB hoped to accomplish, unless he's trying to force us to choose between him and Lulucas. Lulu hasn't even been on the wiki in two weeks, unless he came on chat sometime when I wasn't looking, and he hasn't had 10 edits here since March. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 01:15, May 11, 2012 (UTC)

My Side of the Story

Hey, Brandon. So, I'm sorry that our conflict got brought into this wiki. But, my side of the story is simple: he was rude to me first, so I was rude back. A long time ago on this wiki, me, him, and GarytheGadgetDude, were writing a collab, and then, all of a sudden, IB was rude to us both, for no reason. That's when I started to dislike him. Plus, he kept commenting on my wiki, and my wiki is supposed to be private. If you need to know more, I'll tell you later cause I gtg to bed. Bye and sorry for the trouble. --Lulucas777 If we burn, you burn with us! - Katniss Everdeen 01:49, May 11, 2012 (UTC)

I remember when I first cracked the Top 25, which was enough to be listed as a Top Contributor under the Monaco skin. (It took about 750 edits at the time, but takes more than twice that now.) When I achieved this mark, about 4 months after joining the wiki, I thought that I might reach #22, or possibly #21, but didn't think I would go any higher because that was were the gaps between one position and the next really started opening up. What I didn't count on, though (besides the wiki pretty much eating my life once I finished TDI-G&S), was that most of the people above me would become inactive for various periods of time, or even leave the wiki altogether. I'm not sure I've ever gone more than a couple of days without an edit.

For most of my tenure here, I've averaged 200-250 edits per month. Since the first of the year, though (when I hit 5000) I've been averaging more like 350 per month. Although I may be mistaken, I attribute this increase mainly to adminly functions and to the fact that I'm trying to read and comment on more stories. (I've gotten seriously behind on my reading, though. I've been meaning to read Deception, for example, but have never found the time, and now it's almost done. At least the character I auditioned did well.) Likewise, Wifey never expected to do a lot of editing when she joined 8+ months ago, yet here she is with over 2000 edits. She managed it mainly by being a social butterfly and doing a lot of reading/commenting. (Not quite sure where she finds the time, since she pretty much lives on Chat.)

As long as I've got you here, a couple of story-related questions. First, do you have any plans to get back to Pacific Island any time soon? Second, the latest LTDI chapter hasn't gotten much feedback (possibly because Rhonda was the first to comment, and everyone else might feel like they have nothing to add) and I haven't heard from you since the launch, so how are you liking it? Have any characters emerged as favorites (or unfavorites) for you? Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 00:29, May 12, 2012 (UTC)

I forgot about your coming move. As for school, I imagine this is crunch time for a lot of people, which might well be part of the reason why things seem relatively quiet around here. (That and the fact that it's hard for anything else to get attention when Sprink is announcing the roster for his next story.) As for your favorite characters in LTDI being essentially the same as your favorites in the original, I can't say I'm surprised. In fact, that's probably the biggest reason why people don't do rankings blogs for stories that use the canon cast--it's too hard for the reader to separate the canon portrayal from the fanfic portrayal, especially if the author is doing a good job of keeping the characters in character. (I must say, though, that my versions of Justin and Sadie are getting a lot of love, despite being reasonably similar to their relatively unpopular canon counterparts.)

Remember that loser you banned from Chat for me? He's on the Camps Chat now. Are you an admin there? JustLittleOlMe Lil Jay JLOM Lady Gideon 23:57, May 15, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! I actually hadn't thought of that! Fortunately I came across Red on FF Chat, and he came over and made me a Camp Chat mod. :) JustLittleOlMe Lil Jay JLOM Lady Gideon 01:29, May 16, 2012 (UTC)

Awesome suggestion! Thanks! Me and the Bond Villain have adopted you, without your consent. That's why you're now a Gid, and why we treat you so well! xDD jk jk We've pretty much adopted everyone here already, anyway. ;) I LOVE <3 your suggestion, since my only thought for a new color was deep blue, which sort of overwhelms the pastel-ness of the sig. I'll leave my sig order in MTDM's box, forthwith! xD Also, awesomeness on the money! I'm sure your mom will give you a lot more than that, though. *massive huggles!* Party!! That gives me a great idea!! I'm going to give you a graduation present! I hope you like it. :)

I actually asked MTDM for SlateGray, but then changed it to Silver, since it is only somewhat lighter than the grays. You probably have the link to the color slate, but in case you don't, here's a list of colours you can use on wikia in the sigs.

I've put up an admin blog post that requires your attention. It's mainly a general revisiting of the wiki rules, but is also a discussion on the future of Featured Quote. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 01:13, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

I'm sure you noted that you could only order it online.

Hey Brandon! The Summer Schedule has begun as you know but I think you are slightly confused. At the end of the week, you will need to make a blog post reviewing all of your stories you've been given. Not one at a time so it can be more organized. Also, all scores are out of 20 BTW. :P (please remove your review from Alfie's story) --If your undies are tight, it's uncomfortable.

Ah, yes, an unexpected side effect of resigning adminship. Do you want these pages unprotected completely, or do you want them semi-protected to prevent edits from new and unregistered users?

Happy New Year, Brandon. I hope this message finds you well. Although you're not actually one of my subscribers, I wanted to let you know (in case you don't already know) that I recently posted LTDI's Ninth Night, which has the most intense cliffhanger yet.

A wandering minstrel, I-- 06:01, January 2, 2013 (UTC)

Nice to see you back, even in a limited way. (Just in time for Tenth Night, too.) I'm glad to see that you're resuming Pacific Island, although it's been so long that I'll probably have to reread at least part of it to remember what's going on.

Hi, I'm Space, and welcome back to the wiki!  I joined whilst you were inactive and I loved what you wrought of Pacific Island so far (I've been reading a lot since I joined) and I'm really glad to see that you're going to be continuing it :) anyways see you around! Space was here and he left something real special for ya! 19:22, March 2, 2013 (UTC)

I've missed you oodles, so I thought I'd say 'Yo, Bro!' since you're here again.  ;)  I've missed the whole gang.  Nice to have you back again, limited as it might be.  *hugs*  :)  Jay JLOMSuccess begins with a fellow's will - It's all in the state of mind, -Author Unknown 05:33, March 3, 2013 (UTC)

This month's Featured Quote theme is Dissing the Host. I'll bet you've got something good in Pacific Island, seeing as Dirk is such a dissworthy host.

I am SO happy for the both of you!!  :D  Congratulations!!  =)  When you decide on a date (fingers crossed), don't forget the Bond Villain and Lady Giddington would love to hear all about it.  ;)  Also, when Gid and I set our date, I hadn't realized all the planning involved: invitations, bridesmaid's dresses, out of state relative availability, caterers, etc.  Fortunately mom helped me out a LOT, since she'd been through it and knew all the detail stuff.  ;)  You've got some wonderfully relaxing planning time, so have a great time bouncing wedding ideas!  :D  *hugs*  ;'o)   Jay JLOMSuccess begins with a fellow's will - It's all in the state of mind, -Author Unknown 16:29, March 7, 2013 (UTC)

So, if I understand you correctly, Pacific Island is now officially dead? As for your older stories, our policy is to retain finished stories indefinitely unless the author requests their removal. And congratulations on your work situation, your future sounds bright.  Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 07:20, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

I know you're not actually subscribed to me, but I thought you might like to know that the last week has seen the posting of three noteworthy items regarding my work: (1) the long-delayed Fourteenth Night chapter of The Legend of Total Drama Island; (2) my 10,000th Edit blog post, which includes my Featured Character “acceptance speech” (Brett's Mother from LTDI was December’s FC) and my very first ever attempt at fan fiction, dating from the late 1990s; and (3) a Featured Character interview between me and Rhonda in the January 2014 newsletter. In the latter part of that interview, I’m in character as Brett’s mother, and I toss out several teasers from future chapters of LTDI. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 07:12, January 9, 2014 (UTC)


Yes, I'm still here. I rarely edit anymore, but I do periodically look in to see what's happening, and I remain subscribed to Rhonda. I'll admit, though, that her stories (TD Genesis has reached the Final Two) and LTDI (which, despite appearances, isn't dead--it just sleeps more often, much like its author) are probably the only things keeping me on the wiki at all right now.

Funny you should drop in at a time like this. As I've told some people over the last several months, I am preparing to retire in June. Yes, at about the same time this year's seniors are graduating from school, I'll be "graduating" from the workforce. Perhaps that will give me more time to buckle down and get LTDI (currently hovering around the Top 25 on Fanfiction.net by Favorites count) back on a reasonably consistent updating schedule. Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 14:51, January 16, 2020 (UTC)


She's doing reasonably well, although she still has the same chronic health complaints she's had since before she joined the wiki. (She says hi, by the by.) She's actually giving serious thought to resuming The Beasts of Wawanakwa after a 5-year hiatus]], and had a brief burst of activity last July when she made several tweaks to it. Apart from that, though, she's pretty much done with the wiki. She has since fallen in with a mature online gaming community, and one of the friendships she got there (with a Dutch woman) has progressed to the point of offline communication.

Speaking of offline communication, retirement will enable me to travel if I choose, which is a luxury I haven't really had in recent years because budget season in the spring and summer, and my sports photography in the fall and winter, keep me tethered most of the year. With that freedom comes some interesting possibilities. I have already floated the possibility of a meetup with Rhonda, who was receptive to the idea. If you have any interest in possibly meeting up one of these days, let me know and we'll see if we can make it work. If you still have your fanfiction.net account, you can PM me there.

Meetup or no, how has adult life been treating you? Gideoncrawle I have a song to sing, O! Sing me your song, O! A wandering minstrel, I-- 15:47, January 20, 2020 (UTC)

The deadly coronavirus hasn't gotten us yet, although it's now on my BIL's doorstep. Yesterday, the elementary school JLOM attended--all of two blocks from where my BIL still lives--was closed for disinfecting after a corona-positive parent entered the building. (Her two kids are being tested.) Jay and I are both in the higher-risk category due to certain chronic and (usually) age-related conditions, but we are only mildly concerned at this point.

Hey! Yeah, we've been storing all his stuff there for a while now, I reread the whole series last summer right after I graduated college and it was ridiculously nostalgic. If you want to see the art again as well, I can use my admin powers to resurrect it all. Maybe I'll create a new page on Woldu to serve as a gallery of all his old artwork.

I doubt you've come into any contact with him, but I think I speak for all of us still here when saying I'm beyond curious as to what Sprink is up to nowadays. Hope you're doing well yourself! (canberra) 19:46, March 22, 2020 (UTC)

Hey - yeah, I definitely still can. I've actually got some free time right now so I could at least start to get a page up and running. Sorry for kinda dropping the ball! (canberra) 04:07, April 23, 2020 (UTC)

Hey hey, wanted to let you know that I just now finished the Sprink art gallery on Woldu! I put all nine stories' casts on there, in order, and I just remembered Time Travel/Super Powered were also a thing so I can add those as well. (canberra) 21:02, April 23, 2020 (UTC)
