• 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.

Redearth88 is a Vlog Series created by Glenn Rubenstein. It continues the story of the OpAphid ARG from Lonelygirl15, Glenn Rubenstein having left that series due to "Creative Differences". It is also apparently an Orphaned Series, having not updated since January 2008, although Rubenstein denies this, and the series retains a small-but-devoted (if impatient) fanbase.

Within the story, Redearth88 is the YouTube account of a girl named Rachel, who is making a vlog series for an assignment. If one watches only Rachel's videos, the series appears to be a fairly standard Slice of Life Character Blog. However, there are other figures active in the shadows who have some mysterious agenda concerning Rachel.

Redearth88 is sometimes considered to be a Lonelygirl15 Fanfic, although it features no Lonelygirl15 characters other than those originating in the OpAphid ARG, and the plot appears unrelated.
