How about adding Akiru's "I was born and raised in Japan"?
Something on Tony as パパ would do nicely too. Gundaetiapo 18:45, 5 July 2007 (EDT)
- Believe it or not, I did originally consider putting パパ on the list. However, to be a shibboleth, a word or phrase has to reach a certain standard of common use, right now only SS-san and Coco-san call Tony パパ that I have seen, which makes the word more of a personal quirk shared between the two of them. Same with "I was born and raised..." I don't recall seeing other posters use it.
- I do want to clarify that this page was not created to facilitate the artificial creation of new shibboleths, but to reveal ones created naturally from community experience. Exclusive communities create shibboleths to exclude new members from an "elite" inner-circle and keep them there. Since TJP is an inclusive community that seeks to teach and raise others up and not exclude from some inner-circle, I would be terribly disappointed if the creation of this page were used for that purpose.--Infidel 00:11, 6 July 2007 (EDT)
The original thread was with Keatonatron. It was the OP that thanked the person answering after keat. Kinda funny, I've been looking for an opportunity to do this again, but keat rarely chimes in first anymore. I wouldn't say the tradition is to thank Rich, rather it's to thank the second correct reply and ignore the first. It just works out to be Rich a lot. :D
- Yeah, it doesn't necessarily have to be Rich, I guess, but it's more fun when it's him! Where's the original thread anyway? I refuse to believe it's been lost in cyberspace.--Tanuki 18:56, 27 September 2007 (EDT)
-I tried giving a try, but there are just too many posts by the involved parties. This problem is aggravated because Google cached many pages where keat and rich never posted but were logged in, so their names showed up in the "Users Online" window. Why don't you give it a try. He only has over 3800 posts.
