Do we really need this page, or should we merge this with Pickaxe? Religious Corn   20:56, 12 October 2007 (UTC)

Axes used in the fun, fun game of Bed Axe are not pickaxes. OptimisticFool 21:01, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
Okay, but do we need the page? Religious Corn   21:03, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
Good question. We don't have a page for Find The Load Bearer, so I guess it doesn't make sense to have a Bed Axe page. I vote "get rid of it" .. OptimisticFool 21:08, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
Me too. Maybe we should wait for a few more users' opinions before we delete the page.
...or do you think we should delete it right away? Religious Corn   21:18, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
I've only been editing the Wiki for about two weeks. I'm not sure how much weight my opinion has regarding deleting entire pages. OptimisticFool 21:23, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
Well, we try as much as possible to weight your arguments based on logic and how well they coincide with our practices, not how long you've been here. So, we'll definitely look at all your arguments. Note, though, that you cannot delete this article, as only sysops have the delete button. Before a sysop will actually delete it, we need to come to a consensus about what to do with it, which will involve waiting to be sure others have a chance to weigh in.

Nah, it's not a really good article. It feels poorly written, since Bed Axe is hardly a game. Also, as OptimisticFool pointed out, there's no Find The Load Bearer page either. Delete. – The Chort 18:51, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
DELETED! -141.133.145.118 18:53, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
As far as I know, IP users are not allowed to vote for the deletion of Wiki pages, and anyway, I think a total re-write would do well for this. The reason I think it is deserving of an article is, it is an strange and interesting practice in the Homestar world, I don't actually think that that is a common reason for keeping, but it is worthy of interest and therfore is a good page, and should be kept. As I said though, rewrite.--~ SlipStream 11:50, 16 October 2007 (UTC)
Anonnies can't vote on STUFF. They can, however contribute to discussions like this one (yes, it's not actually a vote, it's a discussion to find a consensus). Obviously, "delete" is not a very good argument and doesn't have much weight (see Heimi's post above). Loafing 11:56, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Since when do we keep pages on one-time throwaway jokes? If they were to suddenly make a short about bedaxe, then i'd say keep it... Did we have a page on "ever and more" after the movies? No. But we did create it after it became a toon. For this reason, i say Check the deck, y'all! Press eject, y'all! Well, it's another bad page and I'm about to reject y'all! — Defender1031*Talk 16:31, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm with DeFender1031. Religious Corn   19:31, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

I think this page should be deleted. While in some cases minor games from toons have warranted separate pages (Three-to-One Marny, for example), in these cases the game is usually much more fleshed out. In the case of Bed Axe, we don't know anything more about it than that it involves throwing axes at a bed. Indeed, there probably isn't any more to it than that. So, this one's not significant enough for a separate article, in my opinion. Trey56 17:05, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Is there anywhere else we can cover this? It is certainly true that it doesn't really merit its own article, but we should cover it somewhere, such as on a broader games page (though not Games, as this is about playable games). For that matter, perhaps we could put Three-to-One Marny, too, since it doesn't have a great deal of content. Heimstern Läufer 17:50, 19 October 2007 (UTC)
Well, somehow Three-to-One Marny wound up on the Non-Playable Games list. And I swore we had a list of board games somewhere (Boardelectrix was the best I could do.) Stuff like Three-to-One or Bed Axe could be thrown into a Miscellaneous Games page? Since, it looks like the board games don't have any further info either? wbwolf (t | ed) 20:25, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

I think this page should be kept. It's much as a game as the Lewis Rudkin SX: england and any other game in the Non-Playable category. I don't like to use the "if this article is ok, then this one is also", but maybe we can reach something here. How about renaming this "Slumber Party Games" and include Find The Load Bearer? (and maybe Uno). I think this would make a pretty overall good page with good info (like that it is possible to find load bearers in a wooden house...).

I agree with E.L Cool. Individually, Bed Axe and Find the Load Bearer are not really noteworthy. However, together they should be an article, possibly with the other games, such as Blood Bleeder, Blistergeist, and mabye even Clapping party, since none of those individually is much of an article. --Healthy Sam 22:18, 9 November 2007 (UTC)

Clapping Party is already an article. Now for the others, I'm leaning towards more of the ones who have had more major roles. Blood Bleeder has been see once, and is not an easter egg like Lewis Rudkin SX: england, and Blistergeist has been seen twice, and in a easter egg. For Bed Axe, weak keep.

I know its already an article, but since it's so minor, (I mean, that is not a game) that I really think that they sould all be merged. --Healthy Sam 22:36, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
I think E.L. Cool's idea is best. Make this page cover both Bed Axe and Find the Load Bearer, and rename to Slumber party games or something similar. Heimstern Läufer 22:42, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Merge with games. Awexome 04:38, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

I think cleaning up the page into an article about both the games (Bed Axe and Load Bearer) is the best idea mentioned here. Bad Bad Guy 21:11, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

OK, I've removed the tag, moved the article and added info on Find the Load Bearer. Heimstern Läufer 07:13, 22 December 2007 (UTC)
