[edit] Needed?

Okay, so I better hope this one is actually okay compared to the Smoldering one. The only thing missing is a picture of someone actually doing one of these fake sound effects.--Silent 20:13, 25 May 2008 (UTC) Edit: Er. That quickly? Er. I'm really, really sorry for that if it does turns out to be a dupe...

I could go either way on this. This isn't quite within the scope of sound effects but i'm not sure there's enough of a connection between the instances to merit a page. Thoughts? (Either way, it needs cleanup) — Defender1031*Talk 20:15, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

I don't think its needed. Ex: Page content doesn't match title in my mind. Expensive for SFX? Nonsense! "Ding" or "Gulp" or even a "Cough" wouldn't be expensive. Expensive should only be used if they can't find, like, a helicopter sound when it's taking off, and they just go "punkity-punkity" in a regular voice. That still wouldn't be very good material for this page. I vote DELETE for this reason. Maybe if we retitle it to: Inanimate Onomatopoeias, or something like that, my vote will change. But until then...DELETE. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 20:21, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Most of your comments are on the current state of hte page rather than what it could be turned into. Give it a chance to be cleaned up and comment on its merits as a potential article, rather than what stands now. — Defender1031*Talk 20:25, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Whatever the name ends up to be, I think this article should stay. If already have enough appearances as it is and subject is unique to TBC's style. Keep. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 21:00, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
The problem, though, is we already have a similar page, namely onomatopoeia, which documents in table form various sound effects vocalized by characters. Probably the best way to handle this would be merge the two articles, since they do cover similar and related topics. wbwolf (t | ed) 20:31, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
I agree. All of the appearances on this page are onomatopoeia, so merging with that article is an appropriate solution. Trey56 15:51, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I disagree, though not strongly. Onomatopoeia is when you talk about the sound by imitating it - "Preeeow", for instance, is used mainly to describe The Paper's sound effect, not to replace it. This article is for instances where the sound effect is completely fake, being created by one of the characters. I think it's perfectly legitimate to keep this article. --Jay (Talk) 17:53, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I was thinking on how the best way to integrate the two articles, and I think the best solution is make two sections. The upper part of the onomatopoeia article would be way it is now (Preeow for the The Paper or Dwayne! for transformations). The lower section would be instances when the characters make the sound. As you point out, the uses are rather distinct, but they are still closely related. wbwolf (t | ed) 17:59, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I completely agree with Wbwolf, but what would the semi-merged page be called? Just Sound Effects? Or maybe Spoken Sound Effects? -Brightstar Shiner 19:25, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I put "Pronounced Sound Effects" below, but the "Spoken" variety would make a lil' bit more sense. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 19:27, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Vocalized Sound Effects — Defender1031*Talk 22:22, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
I say keep for reasons already stated. — Defender1031*Talk 01:08, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
I say keep for reasons stated by Jay, and unless someone speaks up within the hour I'm going to remove the template due to a consensus seeming to have been reached. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 03:14, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Rename

Assuming this is kept, perhaps a better name would suit it? Heimstern suggested "Vocalized Sound Effects". — Defender1031*Talk 20:20, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

I saw part of "Pronounced Sound Effects" on the article itself. How 'bout it? DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 20:47, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

"Pronounced Sound Effects" sounds good. I was going to suggest something with the word "onomatopoeia" in it because I'm pretty sure that's what it's called when you say sounds like that or something, but I wasn't sure. --Acam30 03:01, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

I've now moved it to Spoken Sound Effects, since most people liked this name, but it was never moved. -Brightstar Shiner 22:05, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] New version of the page

Um, I kind of like the new version of the page. It's neat, organized, and not just thrown together like the current one. Thoughts...? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 04:14, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Well, if no one responds to this by this time tomorrow, it's reversion tiiime! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 20:41, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
First of all, that's not how it's done. The mere fact that you were reverted means that someone disagrees with your format, in which case you would need to show a fair amount of support for your idea here before making the change. Speaking to the format itself, I don't really care for it. I admit that the page could stand to be reorganized and prettied up a bit, but I don't think the string of titles and tables is the way to go. — It's dot com 20:56, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Well, what do you have in mind? MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 20:58, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
A reorganization similar to Sound Effects would be a better idea. --Stux 21:38, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] New type of spoken sound effects?

In alternate universe Strong Bad, and his Old Timey version say "jump" quickly before they jump. In hremail3184 Homestar shouts "rake", "shovel" and "weasel" when he is hit with those things. In dictionary Strong Bad say "hurl" when he throws a dictionary and Homestar "tooth" when it hits him.
These are not sound effects per see, but I think it should be noted somewhere, and I thought here was the best place. Opinions? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 04:46, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Any opinions? At all? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 23:36, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
It definitely merits a page... the question is a good title, as [[exclamations that are actually an object or action used in the scene]] doesn't make for a very good title. — Defender1031*Talk 23:40, 22 September 2009 (UTC)
Spoken Objects perhaps? SBE-mail Checker, but I'll check HRE-mails too. 00:39, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
"Hurl" isn't an object though... also, it lacks precision, as "spoken objects" could mean any time someone mentions any noun. — Defender1031*Talk 00:40, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
I was thinking more of a new section on this page, then a new page, as I think it fits the scope. But that's why I ask for what you guys think. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 06:03, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
I don't think it fits on this page so well. If it's to be documented (and I can kinda see an argument that it could be), I think it would need a separate page. - 16:06, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
Spoken actions? Raking, shoveling, jumping, hurling all fit. Toothing? Not really.--Jellote wuz here 21:18, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
(Garden-weaseling...) I see your point. I was thinking more in the line of intransitives (Is that the right word? I had to Google it since I didn't know it in English) - A jump, a rake, a hurl, a shovel, and so on. So A tooth will fit well with that group, even if it's a noun.

[edit] New page for Peow like gulp

It seems like peow is pretty common. And it's used for a specific situation. I propose a separate page for it, like gulp. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 00:24, 5 August 2015 (UTC) In fact it's more common than gulp. So, yeah.

Actually it's exactly as common as gulp. Probably not a bad idea to make a page for it, although I'd like to hear some other opinions. I wouldn't be surprised if some user think it's too subtle of an occurrence. -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 00:39, 5 August 2015 (UTC) Oh, thought you could add something to the back of your sig, eh? WHY DON'T YOU BUY SOMETHING??
Well then that's convenient. Does this thing have a sandbox? --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 01:14, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] New page

Thanks Defender, can you think of any more? Roll my eyes, devilish laugh, stifle a laugh. That could be a page. Not sure what the title would be though. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 08:27, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Hmm... "Spoken actions"? "Self-Narrated Actions"? "Saying Stuff Instead of or in Addition to Doing Stuff"? None of those names strikes me as perfect. Gimme a bit to think about it. — Defender1031*Talk 13:36, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
I just found another one! "wipe my brow" strong badathlon --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 06:31, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
I think "narrated actions" is pretty good. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 06:39, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
It lacks the point that it's the character themselves doing so... But the more I think about it, the more I think that "Self-Narrated Actions" works. — Defender1031*Talk 06:49, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
I'll look for some more examples. Also, I'm not sure if there could be a page out of it, but I feel like there's a gag of Strong Bad's typing getting smaller. Like in kids book and your funeral and a ton of other places. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 06:51, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
They're noted on this page. RickTommy (edits) 07:37, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Woah, and how is there no page for confetti? --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 07:26, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
And smoldering definitely needs its own page. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 07:31, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
See Talk:Smoldering. RickTommy (edits) 07:37, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Helpful. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 05:05, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
As for confetti, I'm not sure it's ever used in a particularly unusual or distinctive way. — Defender1031*Talk 05:07, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
Well, the one from April Fools 2014 and Senorial Day are both notable ones of HR throwing confetti. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 05:14, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
Also videography. The ones where confetti falls are pretty usual but I think it's notable that HR often throws confetti from hammerspace. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 05:16, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
Hmm, there does appear to be a lot of confetti available in hammerspace. Let's give it a shot and see how it shapes up. — Defender1031*Talk 05:41, 14 August 2015 (UTC)'

(indent reset) Will do! Since apparently I'm nocturnal now. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 05:44, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
