Talk:Confetti

[edit] Noteworthy

Do we really need a page about confetti? Almost all instances of confetti have it used in an appropriate fashion and for good reason. I feel like page is a bit of a spoon and doesn't really document any running gag, but just an item you see from time to time. I say delete. - Catjaz63 07:05, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

  1. We discussed this before just creating it, but we can discuss it further.
  2. HRWiki:Spoons was written by one disgruntled user, heavily debated, and widely considered to be incorrect (even to the point where we actually HAVE an article on spoons).
  3. HRWiki:Inclusion guidelines:
    Page content relating to a very generic item or event: Needs at least five to ten appearances and must be of at least moderate importance to the toon (i.e. not just in the background and never mentioned) in half of its appearances. Special weight would be given to pages that document uses that are unique to the Homestar Runner universe in at least some of the appearances. Ex: Explosions
    To me, the fact that it nearly always comes from Hammerspace qualified as unique.
  4. Give it a chance to develop some content first before jumping on it. You may find it turns out to be a decent article after all.

I think it's worth keeping for the several notable times when Homestar throws confetti from hammerspace. It seems like a gag inside the gag. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 08:40, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
I hate when people direct me to spoons. I've read that article like three times!!! --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 08:41, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
I know this is an old discussion, but I think it should be kept, for the reasons Broncotroll stated. 1. It's often thrown by Homestar, often from hammerspace, which is notable. 2. It's the same animation every time. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 20:41, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

[edit] Hm....

Interesting thought. Perhaps we could have a new article, "Party Supplies", and include Balloons and banners? --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 07:28, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

Well... RickTommy (edits) 07:34, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
Oops. Well, they'd be more notable as one article. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 07:36, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
Would they? I'm not convinced of that. — Defender1031*Talk 07:39, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
Yeah you're probably right. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 07:43, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Same confetti?

Could it be that the confetti is the same throughout its appearances? It seems the shapes and colors are consistent. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 01:53, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

If so, then it's definitely notable. It seems like the confetti is the same sprite/animation.--Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 08:25, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
It's the same exact confetti in every instance, so it seems to me like an item running gag. I believe it even has the same falling animation. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 08:41, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
