MrMPS (also known as MPS and formerly known as MrMPS2002 and TheDiesel261) is a member of the Thomas Wooden Railway Community. He joined YouTube on July 16, 2010, and has been on YouTube ever since. He was also a member of TWR Community Radio. He is known for being a very controversial figure within the TWRC.
Before joining YouTube as "TheDiesel261", MPS was a casual viewer of videos, mostly only viewing ThomasWoodenRailway's and Percyno6's videos, while also occasionally viewing rboffill and Henryfan88's videos. After creating the "MrMPS2002" account, he mostly made videos that were very similar to ThomasWoodenRailway's, and Percyno6's; they could even have been considered "rip-offs." MPS later refined his videos, using iMovie and his iPod Touch camera to film and edit his videos. However, his videos were still quite crude, unprofessional, and still could be considered "rip-offs". However, after he had a feud with several users on YouTube, he decided to leave and remove all his old videos, with the exception of the ones he considered his best. When he returned after a short hiatus, MrMPS decided to make his videos more professional-seeming, and got a better-quality camera. However, his tragic mistake with this new series is that he still ripped-off users' videos. He removed those videos, and for a while, it seemed as if he would never have an ongoing series.
MPS however, announced he would be producing another new series. People were skeptical that it would last, until the video (which featured the voice talents of Bertramfan1, EnterprisingEngine93, LNERFlyingScotsman, HenryisGreat15, and Jlouvier) was released onto YouTube, and it ended up being a hit. He was working on Episode 3, and had the titles of all the episodes for Season 1 already planned.
Around this time, MPS also began doing reviews. His reviews were recieved much more positively than his episodes, and he began to put more focus on his reviews than his episodes, and eventually his episodes became more and more delayed. This caused MPS to lose interest in his series and discontinue his series again in late 2014 and started a new one, Sudrian Tales. The first two episodes were recreations of the two from Thomas the Wooden Tank Engine and Friends. He started branching out in episode three, and worked on the series until early 2016, when he decided to discontinue it in favor of doing reviews full-time.
In early 2015, MPS, Oliver Duck, and Percyno6 founded the new TWR Community Radio channel, inducting HiroTheJapaneseTrain, LNERFlyingScotsman, and WoodenRS as members, though Sam and Ted were later replaced by EricPierre53 and ThomasWoodenRailway, respectively. The channel closed in early 2016.
In early 2017, MPS shifted the focus of his channel more towards sketch-based comedy.
- MPS was the first person to bring crossovers into the community, starting the fad by doing one on the Knapford Express Coach with Jlouvier.
- MPS is known for frequently collaborating with other users, his most frequent collaborators being EricPierre53, Turtlesandthomas, MrConductorFan1406, and EnterprisingEngine93.
- MPS currently holds the record for the most amount of users met up with by a single user, at five, having met up with EricPierre53, MilkTankerMedia (five times), LNERFlyingScotsman, MrConductorFan1406, and woodenrailwayonly.
- MPS is known for being a very controversial figure, as he is not afraid to state his opinions and does not take back his words, especially about topics such as the Thomas Creator Collective. As such, he has gone on record saying he is the most hated person in the TWRC, and that he's okay with it.
