    A Japanese copula (です), or word used to grammatically link a subject and predicate, often translated into English using the verb "it is/ to be"

    I remember suggesting to Tube that the April Fool's Anime thread be only 5 pages long. Then, when Rankenphile closed the thread at 8 pages, I said to him: "You're late".

    He changed my avatar to an avatar of the banned.

    Do you guys remember the game in which you could give voice commands to Pikachu?

    That was named "Pikachu Genki dechu" in Japan which is a pun on "Pikachu genki desu" - which means "Pikachu is feeling well".

    So the equivalent would be somewhere along the line of a Japanese person adding "is" after every noun because English speakers say "is" a lot.

    why were his posts pink, anyway?

    who thought that would be funny?

    is the logic that pink is a girl colour? are we twelve?

    Well, extra sentence bits at the end are also used in anime to give the character a kind of catchphrase or characteristic vocal tic, believe it.

    The equivalent would be adding whatever 13 year old Japanese kids say in English to show off how into western culture they are.

    Probably like: "深い闇と希望の光
    すべてが僕らの中に潜む, word up."

    The genesis was a Solid Saints auction. Tube got a theme that ended up being let his roommate (I think) decide. Another forum member got a permanent "Ye Olde Style" theme - which was probably the most jarring because of how much the themes contrast. And Syndalis got to wear his fanboy badges with pride.

    The Morissey/hedgehog avatar was easily my favorite part. :)

    So now that it's over, can we finally get a count of the number of forumers who weren't in on the joke and actually PM'd him about starting an anime thread (with examples of their favorite anime)?

    We'll get back there someday.

    The plugin didn't actually add the word to Tube's posts, it just replaced the final . he made with desu when people viewed his post. If you quoted the post, there would be no desu there.

    Also, Tube never saw his posts because he blocked/disabled the stylesheet. On more than one occasion I got asked to show him where it added the desu.

    I think I derived more humor from it than he did, but hey. :)

    If Tube posts a . in the forest, and there's no one around to see it, does it still make a desu?

    Nothing. It ends a sentence in a way that sounds cute

    In a robot utopia world we would be writing about how to build a hangglider or discussing our hanggliding experience.

    Which is something I cannot do in normal world because I am too scared. Which is something robots would not have!

    Tube said that the ones who PM'd to ask were outnumbered by people asking the same thing as GSM's question by a factor of 10.
