All that AND the kitchen sink?

I'm Xk-sig.png Xkeeper! You can call me "X" or "Ex" for short if you want. "they/them" pronouns, please.

I'm a co-founder of this wiki, along with BMF54123, who made the original site. With our powers combined, this wiki was formed. And with your powers, it has grown into something wonderful.

My role mostly lies in making sure the server does not catch fire or experience issues. Over the 9 years or so that we've been up... so far, mostly good! Please ignore the scorch marks, though.

Why a cactus?

sup im a cactus

This question comes up sometimes; Why is TCRF's mascot a cactus?

The answer: It's complicated. I grew up in a desert, I think barrel cacti are pretty cute, and the cactus is an unused graphic from Super Mario 64 — yep, it really did come from somewhere! It was originally used as the placeholder icon on the various cleanup templates because it happened to be green and an appropriate size, and it just sort of ... stuck there. Not terribly unlike how the actual logo in the top left has been a lazily edited screenshot of Translhextion showing some unused text from The Bugs Bunny Birthday Blowout since the beginning.

Then people started making all sorts of goofy edits of it and, well, here we are. It worked out okay in the end.

Side stuff

In addition to running this wiki, I also side-manage a few other things:


Contact / Issues

If you're having a wiki-related problem, consider contacting one of our fine administrators.

If you need me specifically, though:


To-do list

  • If we don't have one already, {{pronouns}} or something would be cool. (See the top of this page for an example of how it'd work; also, this
  • Set up a new server for TCRF, and upgrade it to the latest version of MediaWiki
  • Enable video uploading and transcoding — this might be very expensive, but would let us finally ditch YouTube as a primary video host
  •  ???
    • I'd like to do more video content to go in-depth on some of the things the wiki covers, but I'm not an expert and it's extremely time consuming.
    • Some other things similar to this, like the TCRF blog, fell into the same category

Contributions

Does running the server count?

Counters

I never really got the point of these, to be honest. It's easy to get high values by fixing typos on pages or doing menial (but useful!) tasks, while someone who raises the quality of a small handful of pages gets an arbitrary lower 'score'.

Contributions can't really be objectively graded like this, but I guess it's a fun numbers game.
