• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"Being a post apocalyptic town's gonna be cool. Other towns'll be scared of us."

Ah, the Big Easy, famous for Mardi Gras, voodoo, and jazz music, despite not inventing any of these. Also hurricanes. The French have an embassy there. If you want to sound like a local, make sure you pronounce it with two syllables, something like "n'aw-lins".

Note: Tourists think they're hot shit when they attempt that last bit. To not come off as a douchebag, just go with "New-OH'rlins". Once you've lived here a couple years, your speech will naturally slur it down to "N'awlins," but don't force it.
