"Network Executive"s are TWoP writers and staff.
"TWoP Moderator"s are moderators who work for us.
A "Head of Programming" is a site administrator.
Since TWoP makes all the shows it writes about, I should bug you for autographs, scripts, audition information, tickets, and stuff like that, right?
No. We don't make the shows, or have any affiliation with them; we just snark on them. We don't provide information on who to call, either. Look up the shows' official sites for that kind of information; we can't help you.
I know of a site where you can download episodes -- can I tell other users about it?
No. It's illegal. Posts pointing other users to illegal download services will be erased, the poster will be warned, and doing it more than once will result in a banning.
No. Find a way to help your fellow posters that doesn't violate copyright law.
Wasn't this site called something else at some point? Mighty...something?
Mighty Big TV? Yes. So if you come across a mention of "Mighty Big TV" or "MBTV" in an old recap, that's why.
Who is Tubey?
Tubey is short for Tubeelzebub. He's the Television Without Pity mascot and logo.
