tropsical (also known as tropsical guy) is a Facepunch user who came to prominence around the Winter of 2013-14 for his distinctive posting style. His posts almost always began with a greeting, contained few correct spellings, and ended with "thanks,, tropsical guy".
tropsical joined in November 2013 and was permabanned by Craptasket for advertising in his first post. After the ban was reduced to 1 day, he continued to post and came to widespread attention in January 2014 when he posted the fast thread "How Did Your Username ?". In the OP, tropsical explained how he got his username and asked others to share their stories. Many users felt his posting style was "cute", and called for a dramatic reading of the post.
MaxOfS2D performed a reading of the post which was praised as "brilliant" and "perfect", while tropsical responded that "i love it its great it make me laugh and think this how people read my write". A couple of weeks later, rbreslow ordered a reading of the post from Tyrone, which was delivered the same day. Tyrone's reading was also warmly received with many users praising his performance as a perfect representation of tropsical's mannerisms. tropsical responded "thx for this proffesional read !! now am know how the business ppl read my !!", while Tyrone said he was "delighted this brought smile to so many faces".
tropsical's last post was on 8 March 2014 in the thread "Draw the avatar of the user above you", in which he posted a seizure-inducing flashing gif and commented "mb its a little bit too much fast !!" As of March 2014, he has not logged into Facepunch since shortly after that post.
While many users found tropsical funny and cute, there were suspicions that he may simply be a gimmick account; User Fosax for example said "If it turns out he's faking it i'm gonna be so fucking mad". MaxOfS2D however felt he was likely real as he had posted "from several dynamic IPs that are located in... Kuwait!". tropsical also has a YouTube channel with videos dating back to November 2012, a year before he joined Facepunch.
thanks,, tropsical guy—tropsical
