[edit] Merge

I say we should merge this with Fluffy Puff Marshmallows. And his birthday being on July 11, 2005 is beyond ridiculous. —FireBird|Talk 16:30, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Yeah. We don't know that much about him anyway. Rogue Leader / (my talk)

I think it's fine as a separate article or merged with Fluffy Puff Marshmallows. I don't see how his birthday being on July 11 is "beyond ridiculous." The email came out 7-11. He announced in the email that it was his birthday. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 16:37, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Did he? Nevermind, then. —FireBird|Talk 16:41, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Keep. Marshie gets his own page, separate from Fluffy Puff Marshmallows. Why not Nibbles? And don't just say because he's a brand-new character. Every character had to start somewhere. — It's dot com 16:39, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Yes, keep it. All the article needs is a little love. -BazookaJoe 16:46, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Cool cool, then. Keep it is. —FireBird|Talk 16:53, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)
no. we know next to nothing about him, and he is a mascot of fluffy puff marshmallow nibblins. Seriously 00:17, 25 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Birthday?

The email came out on 7/11. Nibbles announces it's his birthday inside a FPM commercial! Commercials are meant to play over and over and over and over and over and over and over again! IMHO his date of birth is completely unknown. -- tomstiff 17:27, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Very much agreed, but I didn't get around to writing up an argument for this yet. Thanks, Senor Tomstiff. -BazookaJoe 17:29, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Now that I think of it, is is very stupid to have his birthday written. I am removing it. We should still keep the fact that he is one year old, IMO. Rogue Leader / (my talk)

[edit] Pictures

We have three pictures that were created only for the purpose of this article. One or two of these will have to go. In my opinion, nibble.PNG is the one that should get thrown. nibbles.PNG is an adequate replacement for that. marshievsnibbles2.PNG is good if you want to compare Marshie and Nibbles, and make Marshie's detestation toward Nibbles evident. -BazookaJoe 17:47, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I think that we should get rid of the I make good earplugs one. Rogue Leader / (my talk)

[edit] Aside

Is it just me, or is Nibbles far more plesent than Marshie (the most irritating character) who incidently can't stand Nibbles? -- The Real Zajac 20:24, 12 Jul 2005 (EDT)

It's not just you.--Tiggera 01:53, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)

It's not just you. Nibbles seems kinder and more sweet than "'SUP FOOLS!" "I'll scare your dad!" Marshie. -Kinsey

Marshie is good-old-fashioned Nightmare Fuel. Enough said. Although Nibbles is a bit creepy too, but not enough to, "scare your dad" --TheLatestNews

[edit] Category

Pardon me for being such a stickler, but why is Nibbles removed from the Characters category even though Marshie isn't? —BazookaJoe 01:31, 17 Jul 2005 (UTC)

No idea. I've added it back. —FireBird|Talk 01:47, 17 Jul 2005 (UTC)
In the edits for Nibbles, Trogga states that he removed the Characters category because "Mascots" is a subcategory of Characters. I suppose that's a valid reason, which makes me wonder whether Mascots should be a subcategory of Characters.... Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 01:55, 17 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I don't think Mascots should be a subcategory of Characters. If so, why is Marshie in the Characters category, then? —FireBird|Talk 02:21, 17 Jul 2005 (UTC)

To quote Wikipedia:

A mascot is something, typically an animal or human character used to represent a group with a common identity, such as a school, professional sports team, or corporation. American university and school sports teams are often identified primarily by their mascot. Sports team merchandise often bears the team logo as well as mascot. The team will employ an individual to accompany them to home and away games who dresses up as the creature.

All the mascots are characters. Until inanimate objects become mascots, I'll remove the Characters category from Marshie & Nibbles. --TROGGA! 17:08, 17 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Voice

Is it Matt or Missy? Can't tell.--Jnelson09 23:10, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

probably matt. far as i can tell, missy only does marzipans voice. --Acam30 00:59, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Merge again?

I don't think we should just merge this without a little clear discussion on this page, as opposed to some other one where it might not be noticed. I don't have a strong opinion about whether this should be merged (it's more minor than Mr. Shmallow, so I would probably lean support), but we need a little discussion first. Heimstern Läufer 17:02, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Much like with Dragons, I'm fine with "Main Article:" links in Fluffy Puff Mascots, and Nibbles deserves his own page. Nibbles has his own identity and isn't just a picture like Marshie's mom or Strong Sad's dragon. No merge. OptimisticFool 17:07, 23 January 2008 (UTC)
I think the main reasons for merging Nibbles with Fluffy Puff mascots are that, in relative to Mr. Shmallow, he only appeared once and didn't have his own toon. His commercial was a few seconds long as opposed to the full reel of Mr. Shmallow. Normally I'm for minor characters having their own pages, but since we have a page covering several minor characters relating to each other, I think merging this article in it is the way to go. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 11:00, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
If Nibbles has only had one few-second appearance in bottom 10, then I don't think Nibbles needs his own article (like Gel-arshie). I say redirect to Fluffy Puff Mascots#Nibbles, since there is nothing left to merge. Homestar-Winner (talk) 14:00, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Merge filmography, redirect. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 15:30, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
After thinking about this for a while, I'm opposing a merge. I find Nibbles significant enough for his own article (unlike Gel-arshie, he's clearly a separate character with his own identity). Heimstern Läufer 16:27, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Then how do we handle the fact that the content here and there are identical aside from the filmography? OAOO. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 16:35, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Remove it there and replace with a link here. Heimstern Läufer 16:36, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
But we can't have this be an article and not have Gel-arshie as an article. If we would keep this, we should have Gel-arshie be kept also. Homestar-Winner (talk) 23:38, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Gel-arshie redirects to the mascots page. This should too. EASports 22:40, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
Gel-arshie and Nibbles are not the same situation. Gel-arshie is not a separate character; he is just a gelatinised version of Marshie. Nibbles, by contrast, is a completely separate character who deserves his own page. The lack of a Gel-arshie article is not a sufficient argument for not having this one.
I should probably also clarify that part of my opposition to this merge is that I'm against the very existence of the Mascots page. As Gel-arshie is just a variation of Marshie, I believe he should be covered on that page. Mr Shmallow already has his own article, and I believe Nibbles should, too. That leaves only Marshie's mother, who could very easily go back to being covered under Marshie or split off into a separate article. Thus I'd rather we didn't have the Mascots article at all. Heimstern Läufer 00:49, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
This one's a close call for me, but I'm going with merge with Fluffy Puff Mascots. If Nibbles had appeared in even one other toon, I would totally say keep, but as it stands, he's really just a one-time joke. So, if he reappears some day, then we should reconsider giving him his own page, but till then I think that merging this page is the way to go. Trey56 00:18, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Replying to Heimi, I would actually rather get rid of FPM. My idea to merge was just because it seemed no one else would want to get rid of FPM. It doesn't matter that we have a few more articles, right? We at least don't have 2 million articles, in which case we would be needing to do some merging. Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:49, 28 February 2008 (UTC)
I say merge. Nibbles so far seems to be a one-off occurrence. Until little Nibbles gets more air-time or his own toon I see no point in keeping a seperate article. Stribbs 20:35, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

If this vote is still going on I say merge with fluffy puff bite-size nibblers76.125.106.236 05:29, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

I still say no merge myself. Nibbles has his own identity, and the argument that he's a "one-time joke" or whatever is incorrect. He's a once-seen CHARACTER. He's had an important-to-the-toon speaking part, and even has an identifiable conflict with another character. In my mind, all of that makes him pretty significant. All separate/individual characters should have their own (separate/individual) page, IMHO. OptimisticFool 05:46, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
After reflecting on this for awhile, I'm convinced by Heimstern and OptimisticFool's arguments: Nibbles is clearly a separate character and ought to have his own page, even if he only appeared once. Keep. Trey56 01:14, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

agreed, keep for all listed reasons. if marshie has a seperate page, so should nibbles. (again, for previously listed reasons.) --Acam30 01:16, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Nibbles is minor, but at least he's his own character (unlike "Gel-arshie"), isn't just a picture (like Marshie's mother), and has a decent role. Keep. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 03:30, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Keepinate. He was a major part of the toon, so the guidelines say he should be kept.Physicsguymonsterman 15:29, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

There is no consensus to merge this article, and the discussion has been open for a very long time, so I've removed the {{tbd}} tags from this article. Trey56 07:21, 18 April 2008 (UTC)
