No amount of Flash Player EOLs in the universe is gonna stop me!
HEY! so, i've adored this game for years, and i cannot believe how much of a community there's been here and it honestly disappoints me that i never thought to check the wiki for it,
i have made a discord server for any fans of the *first* slush invaders game, and am currently working on polishing it, but i figured i'd open it up to all of you now.
i hope all of you can join in and if I'm breaking any rules or anything let me know i've never posted anything here. :)
Youve found a hidden message it seems. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi, guys! Seiru/Fanny here.
Ho boy, this is gonna get a bit emotional.
I am reviewing most of the threads we have here in the wiki. Some here are pretty silly, some are irrelevant and some are just so random that you are just gonna scoff, laugh, smile or just roll your eyes. But looking back - even on the threads I'm not part of - each of us gradually shaped into our own personalities/identities. You'll never know something changed in you until you actually read each thread.
Admit it, each of us have done stupid things here and we regret it but it doesn't mean we're just gonna stop there. There are a lot of issues, I'm talking about the silliest ones to the depressing ones. I'm not going to talk about our immature selves just yet... but we all know, deep inside, what are they.
Can you guys imagine that all of us strangers here in the wiki gradually becomes to a group of friends then to a family? I know I might sound cheesy but that's how life it is. Simple but difficult. We're the only ones who make it difficult, like our limitations and flaws. In all honesty and despite all of that, those memories are just memories... though some are still unresolved.
So here's my personal tidbit (and reasons) why I looked back:
Vince noticed this long time ago (or maybe not). I stopped visiting the wiki around mid-2015 to 2016 because I felt useless around here. Everyone has their stories to be told and everyone is ahead of me. I feel left behind and I actually tell you guys about this because I thought I'm just going to be another problem upon your shoulders while it wasn't. I feel so unimportant at that time, I feel being crushed by being a fresh high school graduate to a college freshman and there are tons of work and projects to be done. I saw everyone had a purpose but me, I feel I'm somehow forgotten and that leaves a terrible emotional scar on me and it is still bleeding up to this point.
The reason why I didn't tell you guys these problems because I'm in my suicidal phase that time. Every sharp object that I turned to became something that I want to harm myself painfully. It seems at that time everyone had an obssession while I got left behind that I nearly stopped chasing my dreams. I felt like I was going to be rejected and I envy deeply everyone up to now.
I didn't love myself and I'm still learning to accept my flaws. My headmates are actually there for me not to commit any harm to myself. I'm thankful that they exist because it wasn't for them, I'll be long gone now.
I always think (and the others too): what if this Wiki and Series itself didn't exist? Would we still be the same people? Maybe in an alternate universe, who knows? We still meet somewhere in the internet but we're blended in this mundane society that doesn't know how and when to fix things up. I don't know how fate actually works. No one does but I'm really glad that I meet ya'll, including the ones who already left the wiki.
Eventhough most of you guys leave emotional wounds and scars on me, directly and indirectly, all those times I'm away from you guys... it reminded me of life. Eventhough it hurts, I did my best to move on and begin to accept myself who I really am.
If it wasn't for you guys, I'll be a lot worse than I actually am. My manipulative side has taken over me and I'll be rebellious than you think.
I just wanna say thank you, guys. And I love ya'll.
(PS I initiate a big group hug and I just notice there tears on my keyboard while typing this whole thing)
Fan here :3
I literally have nothing to do this short vacation (except for the commission stuff I planned), I'm looking for something to practice for my graphic design skill. I am aiming to make a wallpaper for Slush Invaders Wiki first before going to its sister wiki.
Any ideas? Because the only one I have is I'll get all the backgrounds used in the background and blend them together.
O.M.G i am NOT lying, I swear to God I am not lying,
I DID A 375 COMBO!!!
And before you guys react, hear me out first.
I've been thinking this for a while since Slush Invaders Series is been on a hiatus for a looooooong time. This and the sister wiki, Fanon, is pretty dead and we have very few or nothing left to contribute in our main articles here. Our respective series are exception of course and we'll get to that later.
This wiki has been standing for almost five years in Wikia and we get a lot of recognition on its first year in a few months. We know what happens next, the "Great Depression" (as I dubbed it) and Gildey released prequels like Slush Invaders: Duel and Slush Tile Rush, in 2013 and 2014, respectively. These animation and game somehow lifted our community spirits up and went downhill in a short while. We also came into a conclusion that Canon and Fanon articles here should be on the Fanon wiki originally created by Mart456t and was deleted by the Wikia staff because of its idleness. I decided to create another one and I want credit it to him since it's his original idea we didn't acknowledge in the first place (again, sorry Mart).
Most of us know, (yes including you idle users and anons), that Gildedguy has other animations like Gildedguy vs Jade and Basement Busk that we can relate to Slush Invaders but its heavily focused on Gildedguy/Stick Michael himself. Additionally, we have a few sets of characters to add yet. I'm also including his other unfinished games that are posted upon his site... and don't forget his artworks are pretty shiny (pun intended cuz of Gildey's armor and art and Moana's "Shiny" song :3). All I'm saying is let's make this a Gildedguy community instead of just Slush Invaders community because, for me, that's only a small portion of his community that doesn't get enough attention nowadays.
I have conflicting thoughts about converting this wiki to Gildedguy Wiki (yes, including the Fanon Wiki) and I'm not sure if you guys are fine with it. I don't want to transfer our articles again just like the one happened in Fanon wiki and we're all gonna start to zero if that happen again. If it does happen, we' have to organize our categories a bit and leave a few tweaks because I can tell our wiki still need a few edits on some major articles.
Also, I'm not saying that we "erase" our memories here but, at the same time, I don't want it to just fade away just because this wiki doesn't get enough attention it needs. I know we lost a lot of users carelessly all these years; some disappeared without a trace, some said their sour goodbyes and some are... just trolls who don't deserve a life. Though some of us wildly appear from real life and welcome them warmly.
For my family from 2012 and onwards, I know we have been through a lot... and we owe Gildedguy for creating Slush Invaders Series and I want to return him a favor by flourishing his community, our community. If majority of you guys agree with this, I'll contact the Wikia Staff immediately to change its name and make another progress. If not, please don't be afraid to voice out your opinion because I really need to hear it.
Ayoo, everyone in the Slush Invaders Wiki!
It's 2017 now and you know what that means?
A new year filled with all sorts of new things for all of us to look forward to; new beginnings, new friends, new experiences, new times, new possibilities... and also new screw ups to also expect to be unexpected.
Any things to say for this year?
Hi all -
I'm just gonna put this here because I have no idea how to edit it elsewhere.
In the "Slush Invaders Wiki Navigation" tab thing that is at the bottom of the pages - I think "means they have appeared in Slush Tile Rush" should be changed to "denotes an appearance in Slush Tile Rush" or something like that. This is simply because I think that "denotes" makes it sound more formal / serious.
Of course, I could be wrong. But...yeah.
DAR BE MEH, LE CAP'N VOONCE SPARROW (yes, I'm bring it back ye sorry lasses).
Anyway, I'm gonna go straight away with this and pour it with as much words as I can process in my mind during the time I was writing this thing :)
Okay, so getting down to it, I just want to say first that, regarding my previous forum post about me feeling "behind everyone else". Well, it was true that I always did feel like I'm steps behind all of you and never really felt ahead of anyone even if you guys thought that "Vince is a guy who is always one or more steps ahead of us.". I'm really sorry if you guys thought of that about me because I'm not ^ - ^ ;
Honestly, it's not just you guys who I feel like are steps ahead of me, but everyone else who I know in my life right now, only referring to those I truly care about. First, before I continue, I just want to say again how I really feel grateful to have been a part of this wiki, became you guys' friend and with you guys for becoming MY friends. I can't ask for any other people who I want to talk with and be with everyday than you guys. And that's a fact :D You guys are really one of the best people who I know in my life and I really wanted to say that again since it's been too long since I said that to any of you.
Continuing with what I was talking about, though you guys may have thought that, here in the wiki (and on Facebook) that I was one or more steps ahead of you, that's not the case back then: I was the most immature teenager you could possibly imagine and the friends who I met during that time were always a step or two ahead of me and that was something I already knew and accepted but I still wanted to keep moving forward and hopefully reach them too. As it turns out, ever since this year, a few of my friends have told me that, as of now, I'm the one who is steps ahead of them and now they are the ones who are feeling as though they are falling behind me. I won't mention who they are for privacy reasons, but when I did look back on myself and my own words, both here and to those friends of mine, I did come to fully notice the motivational/inspirational words I brought to you guys and them and after seeing a short film today (during the morning, hours before I wrote this), I was taken away and felt something in my own self that hasn't been touched since I saw "Blank Dream". Something that I forgot I learned from the latter. And that's never to always doubt yourself, never always looking back at the bad tides of the past but to just keep on living as strong as you can without losing hope and carrying on the fun and good memories you have with those you care about and just keep moving forward with your life. I forgot that one important lesson I learned and the one thing that "re-educated" me this year.
I just want to say that now, I'm not feeling that kind of thing in myself anymore, but rather something more in where, though bad things may happen to me, I will always look in the positive and try my best not to taint this new feeling in me.
All in all, I want to express how, in whatever you guys do, I'll support you all on it and can be sure that I will be here to have you guys' back no matter what. This goes the same with my friends in real life too and once again, I am grateful to you all and thank you for being my friends. In separate rows, I want to thank you all this way:
Fan, I want to thank you for being one of the people who can understand me and what I've been through and always one of the people to listen through with what I have to say. Thanks for being a "little sister" to me and I can assure you that your "big brother" will be here for you, no matter what! And I will be honest to you and though you may not once again believe me, but your artworks are still far better than my own, but that's not to say I'm not catching up to you. I won't let you beat me, Fanana. VOONCEH WILL GET THERE SOON (I just need to tie my shoes first). But in all seriousness, my artworks can't really top yours for the time being because, though you may consider mine advanced, I'm still, in truth, a beginner and I won't be able to truly consider my style better than anyone else's until I'm fully certain with myself that the art style and the level I aim at is the one that I can consider my "Prime". Again, thanks for always listening and supporting me; from then to now and to the many following days that we're still close friends.
Chak, I just wanted to say thanks for at least opening my own eyes at that time when you were still regularly active in the wiki. I did hate the way you acted but that was my immaturity at that time. Compared to now, I want to tell you that you are also one of the people that inspires me with what I do everyday. You and Fan. Both of you. I do know that you aren't all that goofy in truth, but I just want to say thanks for being the one to lift my spirits up even when I don't say it upfront like I should. Thanks for everything, bud (and may the all mighty Doge be with you!).
You two should know by now that out of everyone, I care about you two the most due to how close three of us are. At least that's what I believe we are :)
As for the rest of you:
James, if you can read this, I just want to say thanks for being a good friend and wherever you are now, I'm hoping you're doing great out there. Also, a bit of a reveal, Chak never said that your LOB meant "Long Overdued Buttwipes". It was me. I'm sorry for that. I just wanted to get back at Chak for a previous troll he did on me during the time before I did that.
Scott, though I don't see you much nowadays, if you can read this, thanks for being one of the guys to have helped me around at the time when I first joined the wiki and though we rarely talk to each other much, I still want to thank you for being my friend here.
TRS. I'm really sorry for being way too bossy of you. I should never have. You live your own life and that's something I should be in control of; nobody does except for you. I'm so sorry for forcing you to mature in MY own way instead of in YOUR own way. I should have seen my faults in those earlier backlashes of mine to you. I never should have said and done those. I just hope you return back to the old blue caped penguin with that beard that we all know and not the one who I forced you to be. Thanks for being a friend of mine, dude. I appreciate it. Also thanks for being one of the people I can rely on at times.
Seth, you are one of the people who are always siding with me and supportive of what I have to say and I appreciate those about you. Me and the others couldn't ask for a much supportive and good friend as you. Also, sorry in advance but... you're the beast weasel out there!
Try, I don't see you as much now though but I will say thanks for being one of the people here who I can rely on when I'm not around. You did show yourself a pretty great friend and how you can be a pretty understanding and fun guy just adds to that. I hope wherever you are and if you can read this, best wishes to you dude. I do hope you can come back and join us again.
MW, first I want to say thanks for being one of the guys to have filled in my role (somewhat) here during that time when I decided to leave. Thanks for also being a part of the group and for being a good friend all in all (I hope you haven't spoiling things regarding SU in secret, dude). I need to thank you for what you said at that other forum I made, it was really well written (in my opinion) and thanks for that. Also... side note, sorry for always beating you in nearly every game we play... I'll try to lower my level when playing with you (but not in Left 4 Dead 2; you'll have to catch up with me on that).
Bob, hey thanks for at least being a fun and cool guy and I do appreciate all of your opinion in regards to my series. It helps me a ton in truth to hear what you and the rest say about it. It lifts me up to do better with it and to make sure you and the rest's expectations on what could the world's first animated stick figure series is what you can expect it to be (but probably not with Ch I - SE 1 and 2 for obvious reasons). Thanks for being a good friend, dude. Yuki's a lucky girl to have you (trolololololololololol... sorry though).
Light, well I haven't much talked to you either except on three or four occasions, but still I want to say thanks for being one of my friends here. Really. Also, please keep an eye on your brother... especially during bed time... he might do something we don't want to know (again, sorry Bob).
GN, sorry for being way too harsh on you either (but you can't blame me). I can't say much since I haven't talked to you again in months now since you got banned for "those" reasons. But still, when you do get back and you are a changed guy... let's talk more with the rest and have fun without going all too serious, mkay?
Ultra, dude wherever you right now, I just want to say thanks for being the founder of the wiki and for being a good friend to all of us. We wouldn't have had a better time in the wiki if it weren't for you. I hope to see you again here, dude.
Drew, I know that we didn't much talk regularly as compared to the rest (not that anything I can remember, sadly), but I do want to say thank you for being a cool friend (reference to your title, lel). And your artworks are one of the things that inspired me to improve my own series' quality (You and Chak for that). If you're reading this, I hope that SlushBlaster of yours is still doing okay and I really hope you hang out with us again like you used to.
Austin, dude. I know you've changed and I can tell by our somewhat short discussions on FB recently. Like I told you back then, if you ever have a problem, dont be afraid to talk to us about it and we will be glad enough to help and cheer you up. Especially me. I've always wanted to cheer any of you up when any of you are feeling upset or angry because I don't want any of you guys to feel those too much and not live your individual days as fun or happy as it can. If you can read this, try to join us at the group chat on FB. Me and the rest really want to talk to you again. Seriously, m9.
Shaden... random guy. Where you at? Anyway, I just want to say thanks for everything you've done for me when you were as active as the rest of us at that time. You are one of the funn guys I know here (you, Chak and Skp: Sorry Khen, but you weren't equal enough (jk)). Hope to talk to you again, bro when you're active.
Skp, I can't say much except for being a good friend and for also being one of the people I can rely on. Also... no more kitteh catfaces... it haunts da moind.
BX... I just want to say sorry as well for being too harsh on you. I never intended to be. My intentions weren't meant to drive you away from us. I was just really creeped out with your questions and how I never really felt like your topics really contributed anything to the discussion we all usually have. Then again, that is just you being you. That's something I can't change. Sorry man, and I do hope you can come back and be friends with all of us again.
Dimitri, I just want to say thanks for being cool with me and the rest and having that second change with all of us. Thanks for being a good friend. I also wish your wiki gets as much more attention as it should. It's a pretty good wiki to put as much fan fiction or personal creations there as possible and also building a community there of your own. I believe in you buddy and I believe your wiki will grow to what you want it to be.
Khen, I just want to say thanks for being a good friend, not just to me, but for the rest of us. Although I just want to express how you really need to improve your listening/understanding skills. It can make you be a better version of you (also, as for those idiot classmates of yours... eh... you know what I mean). Apart from that, just remember that voonce is here for fabduck/skrubby to derp-talk with.
Francis, dude, I just want to say thanks for being my friend. I just want to see you talk with us again on Facebook or here on the wiki more.
Smiley, it's been too long, man. I just hope you come back and hang out with us if you and Francis can read this.
Waqas/CQ, dude. The randomness here is becoming too low without you, Shaden and Chak (also thanks for becoming my friend).
Leon. Dude. Where's your head at?
MS/Z, dude though me and the rest may not always understand or talk to you as much, I just want to say thanks for at least being a good friend. Hope you're still here with us.
Tri, I know I should never mention you here again after that unbelievable outburst of yours. But still, that doesn't mean you never became a part of this place and became a good friend of mine. I will say that your own style in drawing was pretty darn good and with stick figures, it was impressive too and you did become a source of driving factor for me at that time to keep pushing SU's design quality forward (same as with Chak and Drew). I just hope you the best even if you may not like any of us anymore. Though have somehow changed to dislike us all, just want to say that at least before that, you were a funny and good friend for all of us and just hope you can come around some day. We'll be glad to accept you back with open arms (I do take back every mean things I have said before and that's not meant to bring you back, I just want to take it back).
Mart. Dude. Don't be so serious or pessimistic as I was. It never leads to anything good. Trust me. I've been there. And here I am now, I've changed from that. Just want to voice out how I just want you to be the guy we all know you as.
Alec, I know it's been almost a year since we all last talked to you, but wherever you are, best wishes and thanks for being a cool friend for us all.
FlameSword, well I haven't talked to you much or hung out with you. But I just want to say how I appreciate your work here on the wiki. Your edits are what also keeps this place active and I do appreciate the help. Thanks for that, man.
Overall, I want to say once again I appreciate all of you guys' work and will always support you in whatever you do with your life that improve yourselves as who you are. I'll cheer you all on with all that I've got and ensure you guys reach your respective dreams. In the case that it may not go that way, no need to worry as you guys at least have us to look to and help you out. Don't ever forget what we all said to each other: No matter what happens, we will all have each other's backs when we need it. Staying true to that, I'll be here for any of you when you need me.
This is what I feel now. I'm sorry for everything I've said and done that may have been the main reason for the indifference we all now feel toward each other and if so... I feel sorry for everything and if you have anything to say to me, if it is something harsh, then please just say it. I do want to hear whaty ou guys feel and it is best that you all let it out instead of bottling it up in one place and let it overwhelm you to the point of it slowly beginning to ruin you, one way or another.
I also want to say thanks to Michael/Gildedguy once again for creating the Slush Invaders series. If it wasn't for him, none of us would be here, none of us would have become friends and none of us would at least be together as we all have said before on chat during the wiki's 2nd Year Anniversary back in 2014. Thanks Gilded (also, sorry for always mispronuncing your name as "Glidey", I didn't notice the placement of each letter until you pointed it out months ago). I have a lot of things to make up for, one of them being what I've done to all of you and what I've said so far that made you all be somewhat of a lower key of who you once were. I hope everyone can at least forgive me, each other and themselves for it. You don't have to forgive me though, but at least forgive each other yourselves and start anew.
I don't want to see any of you feeling down and letting the negativity take you over. I believe in you guys and that you can do better. So get up, be strong, let it out and move forward into your lives. Let the world know who you guys are and what kind of person you all are and the possibilities you can share.
This is all coming from me... and again... I hope all of us can join hands once again together like we used to and at last be the same again as back then. It may be awkward... but let's try.
Thank you, everyone!
- Vincetick! :D
Uh yeah, I won't do my usual, as you guys may have grown a liking to it, "Ayoo!" intro. Why? Well my reason for that is kind of... how can I put this?
I guess that should be one word enough to describe it, I think? Well, I won't go into detail about that, since I need to say something more important than that. Anyway, I know this doesn't need to be said but I feel like it should be. What is it, you ask? Well, I don't want to waste all of you guys' time by having to listen to whatever I have to say again (my usual "too long" speeches; I'm sure all of you are already through with that crap of mine and I won't blame you if you are though.), but if you want to, I won't say "No".
Okay so getting down to what I have to say, I won't say it in a very long paragraph, but if it ends up being so, please bear with it, so here it goes:
I've always found myself one or two or more steps behind everyone.
I know everyone is gonna say "No you aren't", but please be honest and don't just give me a simple reassurance (that spans from one sentence to one paragraph).
Anyway, why do I feel like I am and how? Well it just falls to these:
In terms of being mature, I have never, truly, not even once, shown to be the most mature among everyone. I've always had a childish side to myself, while having a mind that thinks like an adult within the body of a teenager. I've said that before. However, most of the time... I'm childish. I never act my actual age, unless if it was about concerning topics or discussions where seriousness is a needed attitude, which I also still lack even if I have said that I'm "the most serious" user around here. I'm honestly not -- I just believe myself to be. I am gonna admit that, ever since then that Fan, Chak and even TRS have displayed signs of being more mature than I am and should at least be the voice(s) of authority and figure(s) of encouragement than I am.
For creativity, I'll split that into two things: Artistic talent and story writing.
I'm coming clean here --- I'm not the best artist here nor am I the best story writer. Even with the fact that my Stickman Universe series is a real thing and the many fan arts I've done, I'll go clean that I have never actually let my inner "wildly artistic" side go free like I should. Why? I'm always in doubt with myself and always in conflict with the countless amounts of failed attempts I've done it. Yes, even for my own waifus, I've failed to even draw them the way I envision them to be. While I do have a brain that never loses any, not even the tiniest, amount of ideas, I can never really put them into action and thus end up sidetracking and doing the opposite --- whether it's me doing the bad side of it or not doing it all, etc.
For placement of the best among us as an artist, it should go to Fan, with her tying with Chak. Why? I'm certain the ideas Fan has, even if they are just reference-based, can at least put her ideas into action by literally drawing them. This goes with Chak, more or less, and I am just about as amazed to the point that my mind and heart is blow away by how good my "little sister" and "little brother" are. Better than I am. Fan's choice in artistic detail and perspective toward traditional ways, while Chak's choice of digital mixed with a few traditional, combing it with his own artistic detail and derpy background are the things, even with my own artistic style (please don't use this as a way to make me look better since I'm not), that I know I lack myself, even with my own undying love for drawing. Though I think Fan and Chak look up to me (which I think they don't), it's not enough to know that these two are ahead of me in this category (no, I'm not envious).
Story writing. Yes, while my Stickman Universe series is at least 4 years away (get hyped, fam!) and the, I quote Darkfire/Bob, "crap load of time" I have put in it, I have never seen my series as anything BUT as a series (yes, this is coming from the creator himself, who is me) --- in hindsight, I mean that while I believe and know it will be the best (and first) stick figure animated series in the future, the side of me is (no Seth, not my critic side) always up in my head at thinking it won't. Not okay, but bad. For this and how I see myself behind on this?
I will have TRS as an example, and even Dimitri. TRS has a good brain when it comes creativity, at which I feel bad for him for being overshadowed and his own ideas being ignored or forgotten and thus never getting the amount of attention they should get. Dimitri's own way of story telling has, surprisingly, intimidated me to a point where... at times I feel like I'm not fit to be a story writer, despite my own love for it (no, this doesn't fall on the "just do what you want to do and ignore the rest" deal). I won't say that I hate TRS OR Dimitri over this. Why would I? I love the two guys, just as much as I love all of you. Back to the topic, how? TRS is good at somewhat combining characters from others (be it from a series he likes or from us) and his own and turning them into a fun storyline... but unfortunately is not able to tell the full detail of it since he becomes discouraged by how nobody pays attention to them, leading him to cancel them completely out of the feeling that he isn't being appreciated. Dimitri, with Enigma, has his own certain twist when making a story, comic-wise. I have read his "Sibling Rivalries" series at the Randompedia... and it showed me that, while the 6 year experience is something I have for working on SU non-stop... I have come to the thought that I still lack certain things when writing a story that, instead of rising up... I'm falling down.
Though he should never be mentioned here ever again (cuz he's a prick now), Trializ and his brother are also very talented artists. I will be honest that when I first saw Tri's drawings... I got pushed back into a corner and had a deep thought about my own ideas at which I ended up tearing apart because I saw how bad they were. Tri didn't mean to do this, I know. But the impact was enough to metaphorically cause me to feel as such. Seth is also becoming very experienced, and once again, I will say he's becoming better than me. It's stupid for me to always doubt myself, and while some of you might think that it's just me talking non-sense.
Rest assured. I'm not. I'm being real here. I'm being honest.
This is why I have always felt one step behind everyone, which is a contrast to what you guys might think: me being one step or more ahead of you. Now you know that I'm not ahead of all of you, I'm the opposite of it.
That's all I needed to say for now... yeah.
I honestly can't believe it even though I was looking forward to it but guys... we did it!
The wiki has been up for 4 years now.
Can you even believe it? :D
I can't say anything apart from I'm very happy and proud that we're all still together after 4 years. It's been a good run so let's keep going at it, shall we? The wiki is now 4 years old. We've all been with each other for 4 years. We've had a lot of stuff. things happen in 4 years and even now after those we're still here!
So to commemorate such an occassion (and yes, I know it's a bit late; 4 days late actually --- what a coincidence!) what do you guys think we should do to celebrate 4 years of still being here? Put your suggestions below and thoughts about this wonderful topic! Let's keep it up and head for 5 years... even if the series is currently on hold, we'll just have to wait for Gildedguy (finally said his name right, lol) to put updates on the series soon and think positively that the Slush Invaders series is still alive and going!
With that... let's also stay alive and keep going onward... together, like always! :)
Happy 4 years Slush Invaders Wiki and everyone!
I love you all~
I need you all to go to this link immediately.
Alright, what's this supposed to be all about you may ask?
Simple: Let's try to relive the old days (between late 2012 to late 2013) of this wiki, which are roleplays, which were a good and fun thing to have around this place back then, even back in 2014... but we lost those back in 2015.
On Facebook about back in Tuesday this April 2016, me, Chak, Khen and Seth (mostly me and Chak) reminiscence the old "Monkey Brain Vince" roleplay we all accidentally did back in Mart's old "im new to slush invaders wiki (i joined today!)" thread. And also, apparently the reason why we all can't do one more amazing roleplay like that is because, here it is; the whole Monkey RP was by accident.
We all didn't mean to make that one happen and didn't even realize it until we ended it (with one last big doody on all of you, except for Fan ' w ' ). I remember all of us being amazed at what we had unintentionally created. Mostly if we all purposely try to make one, it ends up being bad or abandoned. But if we do one by accident, it continues and ends either just as good or perfectly.
That's the reason, as I see it, as to why we can't create good roleplays and even continue them. We have do them by accident again. Not on purpose. But on accident. A mistake. An unintentional thing. Something we didn't mean to create.
So, we're gonna try to do so right now.
Simple: Everybody just ignore the fact that we are creating a new roleplay and don't give any actual plot to it. Just be random about it and make sure you steer clear of off-topic randomness that may not fit and could cause a deterrent among all of us.
So long as we all stay naive and ignorant of what we're doing, we might pull this off. I believe in all of you that you can do this, and so do I in myself, so believe in yourself as well and believe in all of us.
Let's try it, shall we?
Alright, one person begins, and the rest will follow with whatever they can come up with ' u '
Yes, I'm referring to all of you; Fan, Drew, Thomas, Skp, Khen, Seth, Darkfire, Light, Chak, Stenry, Shaden, FlameSword, Uno, Munna, Scott, Noriel, Lucas, Alec, James and even you, Ultra. Myself included (just out of self-humor and convenience; Vince).
It's been about a year since we've had anything major in the wiki; major updates, major discussions, major threats, major events and even major randomness (the current randomness is, to be honest, on a stale level).
And since we've all taken way too much time just standing by and doing nothing in our lives here in the wiki we are (no, we aren't gonna quit; shut your mouth and sit down) gonna do some major things around the wiki to actually keep it on a clean place; where the wiki is currently at is not considered clean --- it's literally a mess (yes, I know I could just do that myself with all my "free time", but let's me put this here first --- I'm about to take summer school soon out of a hunch that I failed one of my subjects this semester; so that takes away yet more time in my life from what I should be spending it on (E.G: Like being here in the wiki and at the K-On! Wiki), so screw that).
So start of this (soon to be forgotten and ignored anyway) thread that I just [hopelessly] created, let me sum it all up into different sections that we all have to (yes, ALL of us have to; it's time you take part yet again in [hell] wiki activities) do in the wiki to improve to say the least (just out of a better or simpler word to say; yes, I'm being bossy and stupid again --- deal with it).
Alright, but first, sit your butts down on whatever surface you are currently reading this on, pay attention, keep your focus on this (unless you're brain-dead) and just (for goodness sake) bear with this and read it thoroughly:
Seriously, we need new templates around the wiki. The current templates are now atrocious. They may not to you and others, but to me, they are. They just are. They are seriously horrible now than before.
With that [honestly] said, we need new ones that are just good enough so that they aren't considered really horrible. I've also had this idea that we should create new ones that differ in category; character templates and user specific templates. This way, we don't have to use the same templates in the [more or less] same type of characters, items and locations within the Slush Invaders series (this also includes anything else that Michael/Gilded creates).
Templates which I will exemplify would be as such:
Character-specific templates must be in different colors, depending on their roles in the series; a character that is among the Slush Fighters, among the Invaders or among other unknown factions. The way we do this is differentiating the colors of their infoboxes; green for the Fighters, blue for the Invaders and yellow for other characters without any specific group (Limes are included into this).
Boss type characters will have to be red due to obvious reasons.
Meanwhile, user specific templates are on an optional customization place; meaning that those who wish to create their own specific template for their own are on their own for this but can ask for help if they need to.
If somebody can be helpful enough to voluntarily customize the templates we already have in the wiki into the ones that I just exemplified, that would be wonderful!
They look awfully arranged. It's like some typhoon came by and just messed up the whole category in every single page around the wiki.
Alright, let's get down to the real thing here. We have to redo all of them properly. We really REALLY have to. How? That is simple: Remove a category that really is unneeded and does not fit whatever page it is on.
Example: Stickyle's page has these categories in his page; Slush Fighters, The Movie, Auto Fighters, Upgraded Standard Fighters, The Game, Ultra attack fighters, Slush Defenders, Slush Invaders Characters, Slush fighters that uses fire, Elemental Attacker, Fighters who change their icons, Not-playable Slush Invaders Characters, Non-affecting Fighters, Fighters who do not use weapons, Th (what even?), Melee Fighters, Starting Fighters, Unlocked in regular mode, Slush Tile Rush and Original Articles.
Seriously? To make this short, the categorizes that I mentioned that are italized must be removed; they are literally inappropriate and insignificant to Kyle's page. The one's that I did not italize can stay because they fit into his page fine.
Regarding others with the same problem (more or less), remove the categories that don't fit in and leave out the ones that are significant to the page (in this example for every Slush Fighter-specific character; leave the categories Slush Fighters, Slush Invaders Characters and Slush Tile Rush in their pages.
Simple explanation enough?
Need I say more?
We need to do a daily or weekly round in the wiki to inspect any spams, grammar errors, unneeded information or just to keep the wiki safe (like a patrol in this case).
Continuing with what I said about infoboxes in the templates, we need to double check the infoboxes in the wiki and properly put what is necessary into the pages they are put in.
Only put in information that is significant and has an actual relation to whatever or whoever's page it is on. Let's not complicate this any more than it should be. Simple task. Simple finish.
Weekly Wikia Rounding:
Same as the Extra Clean-Up duty I'll be giving everyone, but this one is a weekly thing.
Apart from me (who is active on a daily basis), we need people to go by the wiki once at the end of each week (Saturday) and to check the place out for any "inconvenience" and to keep it in proper order while the others are away doing...
Whatever the hell they are doing (I don't flipping know). Just one or two users (excluding me) who can make enough space in their busy schedule to go active in the wiki three times a day during the end of the week.
I can assign people who can, but those who can't can ask someone else to take their place for the time being. It may be an unnecessary thing, but just as a precaution, but we just need this. Trust me. We do.
Wiki Background Fix:
Simple question for this: Who can properly align the wiki's current background?
Whoever can take this up, big thank you!
User Page Inspection:
The same as going around the wiki to check for any "problems", but we need someone who can inspect every single active user to date's user pages for anything "suspicious" (no, I'm not referring to anything personally suspicious; don't look at me), just in the case that somebody might try to break the rules and test us by spamming around.
This is in the case for what happened with Thomas a while back; a new user came by whose name I will not even dare say bcuz reasonz and foolishly decided to deface Thomas' main user page by editing it saying "I like [censored]" (look up TRS' user page's history page for what he wrote on Thomas' page).
Right now, he is still blocked.
This is also just a precaution, just in case any [annoying] troll out there may arrive and try to spam on each of our user pages and the pages itself.
Home Page Update:
Somebody (specifically Fan) has to update the poll in the home page of the wiki.
It's been a year since Slush Tile Rush came out and if that poll isn't updated still, it will be about 2 years since that poll was up. Somebody has to change it. Along this, somebody has to change the featured image and featured page once every week. We may have a limited amount of images and pages in the wiki (since Slush Invaders isn't that much popular anymore; but have faith in it and Michael), but that's something we have to keep updated to add more show that this place is still active and so are its users.
So yeah. Not much to say about that apart from what I just mentioned we need to do about it.
Half of the Fanon pages in the wiki are still present and knowing full well that it was my job to delete every single one of them without needing to wait for all of you after the deadline (which was during January 12 of last year), I've decided to let those remain (referring to the remaining fanon pages that I haven't deleted) until the owners of those page remain and can move them to the Fanon wiki.
And speaking of the Fanon wiki...
About the Fanon Wiki:
With the uprise of inactivity of users lately (being similar to the, I quote Fan-Fan, "Great Depression" of 2013), even though the Fanon wiki is now up for users to do their fan made pages there and keep on doing them there so that they won't interfere with the activities here in the main wiki, it seems that there have now been less activity than before.
A similar situation happened during 2013, but luckily went away by the time a dozen users joined and helped rose back the wiki's stand to where it is now, however, where it is apparently falling from again.
I will having another discussion thread regarding the Fanon wiki in that wiki itself soon enough, likely some time by the start of April to add up convenience since Fan will become more active due to Summer coming along (at the cost of me suffering yet another On Job Training class and likely summer school too), since she is the current owner of that place and the fact that Chak, Seth and Bright will also be active once again by this time.
Any way, rest assured, I will be beginning a new discussion there soon.
With those out of the way for now, I'm hoping (though foolishly) that we can at least accomplish this right now, as in this year itself, without any faults or any more mistakes.
Keeping this place as active as it can, that's a personal objective that I have. A literal one at that. I am still keeping my word of not letting this place die so long as I'm still alive and guess what, I'm still breathing... so that practically means that the wiki is also standing.
I made that promise and I'm keeping it still. It's gonna be almost 4 years since the wiki has been standing and almost 4 years since we've all been together (though being drifted away due to personal reasons that I will not disclose).
I would like to not see the day that we all be separated forever due to complications, due to personal grudges or even hatred... and I would like to not see us all be torn apart. That is something that will indeed break half of my soul. I've been giving my time to this wiki because, I don't wait for time and I know for sure that time does not wait for me. I make time for the wiki.
I make time to do whatever I want to do. Do whatever I need to do.
I make time to make things right... and maybe even make things wrong... or better or worse...
I make time because I know I can make it. But maybe I can't and I'm just being too naive for my own good. Or that I'm just talking nonsense.
But here is something I do know.
I make time because I want to. I want to make time to spend it on certain things. Doing my artworks, continue progressing my series, continue my other works in here, the Fanon wiki, the SF wiki, Dimitri's wiki, the Date A Live wiki, the K-On! wiki, the Gochiusa wiki and on the Metal Slug wiki.
I make time because I believe that I can make time for myself and make time to hang out with the people that I know certainly in myself that I consider close to me to the point that I consider them family, and as such, would not even think or dream about NOT spending a day without at least one of them. And that's you guys. There was never a day that I would not be here, never a day where I wouldn't try to gain your attention just to talk with me, never a day that I wouldn't try to act as though I didn't want to be teased so that you guys can do the opposite and never a day that I would imagine my life without any of you.
That has never happen nor will it ever happen.
You guys are a part of my life now. And that is an official thing for me. That may be something stupid and highly ambitious, but I honestly don't care.
Once someone or something has become close to me, they become a part of who I am. That is my life essentially. And losing those parts of me is like slowly dying in an even more painful way than what one could imagine as being the worst experience of death.
To put it bluntly; I care about you guys. Even though I may sound rude for the most time, that's just to show myself as being... well... me. I've explained this enough already as to why I do this and I know that you all remember why.
Ending this thread, let's try to make this discussion a major thing this year in our wiki's history. Let's try to accomplish something together for once.
So yeah, let's get a move on, fellas!
