Individual articles

Individual articles for Mellow Mushroom characters are simply not needed. As I said earlier, a short one line description after the character's name would suffice. -- Tom 15:42, 30 Dec 2004 (MST)

But will we give Mellow Mushroom's toons, games ete. individual articles? --Trogga 21:07, 14 Jan 2005 (MST)

Nope and nope again. Everthing concerning Mellow Mushroom can go on this page. -- Tom 21:16, 14 Jan 2005 (MST)

Can we at least vote for individual articles for Mellow Mushroom, or just put the entire Mellow Mushroom site one page? --Trogga 11:55, 15 Jan 2005 (MST)

Vote? What do we need to vote about? It's the Homestar Runner Wiki. We just have an article for Mellow Mushroom because it was something The Brothers Chaps did. Everything can be summed up in one article. I don't think it's title needs to be anything other than "Mellow Mushroom." -- Tom 13:09, 15 Jan 2005 (MST)

So? This Might Be A Wiki has individual articles for Mono Puff, yet it's still a They Might Be Giants fansite. I don't see why it's such big deal. --Trogga 15:47, 15 Jan 2005 (MST)

At this point I don't see a need for separate articles for Mellow Mushroom stuff. If the current article gets so full that we need to split it up we should consider multiple articles. If you have a lot to contribute to this article then do it! Because MM is a company site, TBC may not have had the most artistic freedom, so we don't know for sure how much of the content we can attribute directly to them. - Dr Haggis - Talk 16:28, 15 Jan 2005 (MST)

That sounds re-zon-able. (Sorry.) --Trogga 17:44, 25 Jan 2005 (MST)

That does seem a little crazy to have individual pages for different Mellow Mushroom stuff. →evin290 19:08, 25 Jan 2005 (MST)

One page is sufficient. Post more detailed MM articles on the Mellow Mushroom Wiki. --tomstiff 00:33, 13 Mar 2005 (CST)

I don't care! I'm making individual articles anyway! No one. 3/18/2005 12:27

Are you joking tomstiff? --Trogga 15:47, 18 Mar 2005 (MST)

I assume so, for there is no thing as Mellow Mushroom Wiki. →[[User:FireBird|FireBird]]

Anywho, I think we should at least have aricles for the toon(s), games and main pages, for completeness. This may be the Homestar Runner Wiki, but don't we deserve to learn a bit more about TBC's side projects? --Trogga 20:27, 24 Mar 2005 (MST)

I agree with Dr. Haggis's comment back on Jan 15th. We don't have a need for separate articles for Mellow Mushroom stuff. And like he said, we don't know how much of the work on that site is actually theirs. -- Tom 14:59, 26 Mar 2005 (MST)

Good point. I emailed Mellow Mushroom not too long ago this:

Hi, I'm a big fan of Homestarrunner.com. I know that the Brothers
Chaps, the creators of Homestarrunner.com helped make the Mellow
Mushroom site. How did you acquire them? Will they update the site?
Did they enjoy working on the site?

Just wondering,
Trogga

I haven't received a respond. I also emailed TBC about MM, and haven't received a respond either, so now I'm neutral about individual articles for MM. What do guys think? --Trogga 19:13, 12 Apr 2005 (MDT)

Individual MM articles have no place in a H*R Wiki. A single page summary more than suffices. -- tomstiff 14:47, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Then how come we have complete pages for the other side projects? --Trogga 23:45, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Nobody's written enough about MM to warrant separate articles. I'd say not to consider separate articles until someone starts writing / transcribing more of the site. Aurora the Homestar Coder 23:49, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)
One article is sufficent, especially since it appears as though this site is now quite dormant from additions by TBC... Thunderbird 00:03, 14 May 2005 (UTC)

mellow mushroom food

I have eaten at the mellow mushroom before, and it was the best pizza I ever had. have you ever eaten there?

This is pretty off topic, this is the page for THE WEBSITE. But, on the subject, I hate Mellow Mushroom's pizza. Too much sauce is all. --thatkidsam 17:26, 15 May 2005 (UTC)
I ate at the one in Gainesville. Decent pizza, but definitely NOT the best *coughpapajohnsisthebestcoughcough*. Cheatachu72 20:51, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Update

I could have sworn that the "Dude Skate Game" was made after I first reached that site. It's not much of a game, anyway

number 1: sign your posts.
number 2: mellow mushroom is probably the dumbest site I've ever seen.
-Alice

Number 3: If you're telling someone to sign their posts, the least you could do is register so that you could use a normal signature like mine. --—Darklinkskywalker|Talk_|i did this stuff_ 00:30, 1 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Weirded OUT!

That Mel-mushroom dude sounds like Bubs. Coinkidink? I think so. I just felt somebody had to say it.Ookelaylay 19:39, 6 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Not a stub

This article is not a stub. It contains all the necessary information it should; namely, it is an overview of the MM site with a link to it. This wiki is about H*R; more-detailed info on MM does not belong here. — It's dot com 17:56, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Yet we have more complete pages for the other side projects... --TROGGA! 18:02, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)
What are you talking about? I looked at those other pages, and they are about the same in content and length as this one. (Thorax Corp's is a little longer, but it is more closely tied to Homestar Runner. It is still, however, on just one page on the wiki.) What more information do you think someone will add by having a {{stub}} tag? — It's dot com 18:07, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Hmm, you must have been right this whole time; according to Wikipedia, "A stub is an article which is clearly too short, but not so short as to be useless. In general, it must be long enough to at least define the article's title. This usually means 3 to 10 short sentences. Note that a longer article may be a stub if the topic is complex enough; conversely, a short article on a topic which has a very narrow scope may not be a stub." But I still don't see anything wrong with more-detailed info on MM. --TROGGA! 16:28, 22 Jul 2005 (UTC)

The Sun Almost Rises

Since you had a big debate on whether or not to put in individual articles, what about the toon? Can I make that or not?-^Gordon—584^ my talk

I think you could probably make a note of the toon on the MM page, but a separate page and/or transcript for the toon is completely unnecessary! -- tomstiff 20:53, 2 Aug 2005 (UTC)

What makes it "completely unnecessary?" --TROGGA! 21:10, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Cast your eyes to the upper left hand corner of this page. -- tomstiff 21:25, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Couldn't we just put the transcript on the mellow mushroom page? I can make it. --— talk Bubsty edits 20:45, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Why?

Can I ask why we have this page? this is the Homestar Runner wiki, not the Mellow mushroom wiki. Rogue Leader / (my talk)

I couldn't agree more. What is already here is plenty! -- tomstiff 20:51, 2 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Yet this wiki isn't paper. --TROGGA! 21:21, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

We have all experianced a 509 error. I just think that it isn't related to Homestar Runner, and should be shortened. Rogue Leader / (my talk)
There's a big difference between us and Wikipedia. Wikipedia purports to cover basically anything in existence. We are a Homestar Runner Wiki. Mellow Mushroom is not Homestar Runner, it's just a side project, and the evidence is such that TBC haven't actually had much to do with it. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 21:27, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Couldn't have said it better myself! If you read this page completely, the same point has been made numerous times: MM ain't HSR. -- tomstiff 21:32, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Well duh, it's a restaurant. {rimshot} But the website, in my opinion, is TBC's Wings. --TROGGA! 22:06, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

So ... Mellow Mushroom is to Homestar Runner as Wings is to The Beatles. Dunno if I can buy off on that one! -- tomstiff 22:22, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Does that mean that "The Sun Almost Rises" is TBC's "Band On The Run"? Or "Live and Let Die"? -- tomstiff 22:24, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Rouge Leader, deleting one article on the Wiki will not change anything in regards to our bandwidth. Fear of exceeding our bandwidth allotment should never be taken into consideration when determining an article's merit. -- Tom 22:27, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I didn't mean delete. I meant taking out the chracters section and the pages section. I think that this page is jst giving to much attention to a side project. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 22:32, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Taking out the characters section and pages section still won't do anything. Deleting a page, or a section of a page, will not help the bandwith issue.
By what you guys are saying, we should also delete the Thoraxcorp article , because it has nothing to do with Homestar Runner. Mellow Mushroom involves TBC. That's why we have it here. I don't see why we shouldn't. —FireBird|Talk 23:10, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I think this article should stay as it is, and not be deleted. I was just saying that we don't need to expand it into multiple articles, as Trogga suggested. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 23:36, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I agree. -- Tom 00:16, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I still think that we do not need a characters section and a pages section. Bandwith aside, I believe that we do not need a section explaning characters and another about the pages. This article should stay, but I think that those to articles should go. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 00:28, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)
So you have a problem with the formatting of the article? What do you suggest, we combine the two sections? I think it makes sense to have them separate. -- Tom 01:05, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC).
No, I just think that those sections are useless, and I wouldn't care to ee them go. But I can live with them being there. I think that we should stop arguing about it. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 01:07, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Three reasons why there's nothing wrong with more-detailed info on MM

  1. What I mean by "this wiki isn't paper" is that we cover everything H*R related; from A, Anonymous to W, Wood-davers. Why not make a great article on Dress Up Mel? MM may not be H*R, but why delete presumable hard work?
  2. Let's say someone searched for a quote from "The Sun Almost Rises," assuming it's H*R. Wouldn't it help to transcribe "The Sun Almost Rises?"
  3. Not right now; I've got a headache. (trogga)
Let this go. Let this go already. You've said it yourself... that stuff is not H*R. We don't need detailed pages on it. No one is going to search for "The Sun Almost Rises" quotes. Nobody else wants these pages transcribed. If you want to transcribe them and keep them on your computer, no one can stop you, but they don't belong here. — It's dot com 17:56, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)

But where else can we put more detailed MM info? The Mellow Mushroom Wiki? Look, all I'm saying is individual MM articles on a H*R wiki isn't going kill anyone. But if you still disagree with me, that's fine, but why stop debating? (trogga)

I am going to type this slowly: There. Is. No. Need. For. Separate. Articles. Debate should stop because you. Are. The. Only. One. Keeping. It. Going. Of all the users who have posted on this talk page, you are the only one who wants separate articles (except for maybe one other person, but he only posted once). Everyone else has stated unequivocally that one page for Mellow Mushroom is more than plenty. This discussion has been going on for nearly nine months now. Enough is enough. — It's dot com 20:59, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Well, you've inspired me to take a break. Before I go, I am going to type this slowly: There. Is. Need. For. Separate. Articles. What's the point of. One. Page. When. You. Can. Have. More. Sorry for being so anal. (trogga)

I'm firmly in the "there-is-no-need-for-multi-pages" camp. But, if you're so keen on adding more MM cr@p ... make it so! It's a free Wiki. Transcribe "The Sun Almost Rises" and post it. -- tomstiff 21:38, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
But don't be surprised if doing so just gets us right back here. — It's dot com 04:55, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
We do not need transcripts of Mellow Mushroom toons. We do not need multiple articles. Trogga, if you are interested, you can create your own wiki for free at WikiCities about Mellow Mushroom that you would have complete control over. -- Tom 12:18, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I don't think MM deserves its own wiki; that's why I prefer multiple articles over a simple summary. But recently I've decided one article is A-OK. At least acknowledge the fact that it exists. (trogga)

Hey Trogga, there's always Wikipedia, y'know. Why don't you go into detail about Mellow Mushroom there? Then we could link to it from here. - Joshua

Drugged

I've been wondering if I can add information about the intentional drug references to 'shrooms and stoning in the Mellow Mushroom site, or if it's not allowed to post that type of content.

Like what, for example? And how do you know it's intentional? — It's dot com 23:40, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I think everyone can already tell that theres a referance to drugs on that site. lets just leave it at that. --— talk Bubsty edits 20:47, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)
