Welcome to What Was Supposed to Become The StopMo Wiki

But it never took off or gained traction or generated interest or ran out of cliches to euphemize its failure. So, Boy Oyng, whoever they are, is just going to turn it into a personal playground. You—whoever you are, whoever we are—are welcome to join in the fun.

It's going to stink with randomosity and ill-informed opinion around here!

For a bit more completely out of date and futile information, please read the About the StopMo Wiki page. (Actually, I wouldn't bother if I were you.)
