Hey everybody, really glad people are enjoying the episode they got out of my doc. Gonna share some of my thoughts here.
First of all, I was pointed towards this wiki from a random post on tumblr by someone who had stumbled upon it. One rabbit hole later, I spent about four hours constructing the doc because I had no idea what else to do. This sort of experience has to be shared.
Second, I really recommend looking through the website and exploring it yourself. There’s no other way to really understand (as much as one can) the ins and outs of this strange little community.
The admins have provided the majority of the pages on the wiki, but there are a couple other prolific users, many of which have been banned. For example, the guy who kept making those portmanteau names? No longer allowed to post. He’s banned for making something like 27 of the same type of family with weird and sometimes genuinely offensive names. The admins kept his pages up, for some reason. I think this is because it would eliminate some of the “episodes” and therefore fuck up the “seasons”, but this is speculation on my part.
Most of the admins have definitely been here since they were children but did not leave since becoming adults. Looking at the front page and in their profiles, you’ll find they have their own share of drama and interpersonal issues. In my doc I included a link to this page, which is just publicly shaming people for not adhering to the wiki’s standards: https://supernannyfanon.fandom.com/wiki/Disruptive_Editing_Chart
Further, there’s community-specific terms and slang that I found really fascinating, like referring to certain characters as “amok runners”. Obviously this sort of coinage happens in any internet community, but there’s some stuff I still haven’t been able to parse. In some character profiles you’ll see in the trivia that they “share the same brain mixed” with other characters. I still have no idea what this means. None of my research yielded any explanations.
Also, the page for Reicheru Chaiko itself would have been the length of a whole goddamn document. It’s bonkers long and I still don’t know how this character relates to anything in the wiki. I think she’s haunting the descendants of the people who killed her. It is very confusing.
Anyway, if I do make another doc I promise it will not be this ungodly long, but paring this one down was very difficult. It is a lot like the Dozerfleet wiki because there is so much wonderful and confusing material I had trouble choosing what to include. Another reason you might want to spend some time looking around, yourself.
Edit: Oh, and big thanks to the guys for recording this! You all did really funny stuff with the material and it was a real treat to hear K Thor on the show again. Great episode, and I’m not just saying that because I compiled the doc for it.
