Talk:Strong Bad and Bubs's Relationship

From Homestar Runner Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

I don't see any relevant plots or jokes based on this relationship. It's simply not relevant enough for an article. Certainly, it can be mentioned, but it should be in the Bubs article. And one or two lines should be sufficient. Delete Loafing 21:16, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Agreed on all accounts. Delete. -- 21:32, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Delete as well for the irrelevancy. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 22:59, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
If we were to delete this article, then we might as well delete all "relationship" articles. Strong Bad and Bubs have their rough spots, too, as well as their good spots, don't forget. If we want to get rid of this article, let's get rid of the relationship article of, say, Marzipan and The Cheat or... Homestar Runner and Pom Pom, hmm? My goodness, give this article a chance. I mean, I just barely created this article and you are already criticizing it. My goodness, I don't like it when people just jump to conclusions. Give it a chance before considering deletion, will ya? --MHarrington 23:48, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
If we are to keep this, we may as well make a Strong Bad and Coach Z's Relationship, Coach Z and Marzipan's Relationship, Bubs and Marzipan's Relationship, Strong Bad and The King of Town's Relationship, The King of Town and The Poopsmith's Relationship, Strong Bad and Homsar's Relationship, and Homestar Runner and Homsar's Relationship. I say delete. This goes for all other "relationship" articles. Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:35, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
I think we should only have relationship articles for characters who have strong "love-hate" relationships, such as Strong Bad and Strong Sad. --Trogga 01:14, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
The difference between this article and other relationship articles is that most of the time it's just both of them in the same toon. To characters from a body of work interacting in their own personalties. If it was something spacial about them, or if they had in-jokes about the due this page would be noteworthy. Bubs sell stuff and Strong Bad is the most frequently appeared character. It's obvious that they will interact. If, say, The King of Town was the most frequent character, he will all the time be buying stuff from Bubs. I just don't see what's not normal about it. Delete.

E.L. Cool and Trogga are right. This article might as well be called "Strong Bad and Bubs Being Seen in the Same Place". There just isn't enough to say on this subject, compared to the rest of those other relationship articles. Delete. – The Chort 18:36, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

this should be an article. slipknot6477 02:38, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

[edit] It's back?

Well, it seems this article has been re-created. If another sysop deletes this as re-created material, I can't really complain. I do want to go on record as saying that I support keeping this article. The relationship seems easily substantial enough for an article, with some contradictions in terms of whether or not the two characters get along. Heimstern Läufer 06:47, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

Exactly. I just thought that there is adequate-enough evidence to see that Strong Bad and Bubs have a bit of a love/hate relationship and therefore merits its own article. That's why I decided to revive it and try to give it a new lease on life. MHarrington 21:28, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Delete

I nominate this article for deletion! My reasoning behind this nomination has been stated pretty clearly in the above nomination. Delete. I'm Not Certain 14:38, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Disscussion has been final: No Deletion. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 14:39, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
How is it final? I was pretty sure that this article was at one point deleted. I'm Not Certain 14:42, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
See the comment above you with MHarrington and Heimstern Läufer. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 14:44, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
So, you're saying that 3 votes to keep beats out 6 votes for delete? I'm Not Certain 14:50, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
No. The sysop makes the final decision: Delete or Not Delete. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 14:56, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
In that case, could you give a list of the sysops? I need to know who not to piss off. I'm Not Certain 14:59, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

Thanks. I'm Not Certain 15:04, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
I disagree. I don't think consensus has been reached at all. It seems fairly evident that, although Heimstern Laufer is indeed a sysop, he wasn't declaring the final decision, but rather just casting his vote. Note that he says he "wants to go on record as having said," and that he specifically leaves open the possibility that another sysop delete the page. I don't think any sysop would declare consensus one, way if the vote was clearly 3-6 opposing.


While I'm at it, two other things. I would cast my vote in favor of deletion though I dunno if unreg. users count. If not, I'll fix it when I get around to registering. Second, isn't the possessive of Bubs "Bubs's"? re: the page title. (Not pissing off sysops seems to be a good move, either way, tho.) EDIT: Registered now. Vote still delete Dagron 07:16, 13 November 2007 (UTC) EDITx2 on second thought, I think I reconsider. I don't feel strongly enough to say delete, so I abstain.Dagron 08:50, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
Enjoying all these indents. =] Moved page as suggested ("Bubs's" is correct) — good call! OptimisticFool 19:54, 11 November 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure why this page was re-created. I'm still for deleting it. Loafing 01:56, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Waitwait. "The sysop makes the final decision"? So, in theory, we could get 20 "delete" votes, and one sysop decides he likes it and that's that? Or, we could get 20 "Decline" STUFF votes, but the one "Accept" is from a sysop, so it's automatically accepted? Err... Ehem... I've actually heard several sysops argue quite the contrary. As I've gathered, their votes carry no more or less weight than anyone else's. HRWiki isn't a dictatorship. -YKHi. I'm Ayjo! 02:14, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

From HRWiki:Sysops: "Sysops are not imbued with any special authority, and are equal to everyone else in terms of editorial responsibility. ... Sysops should not have power over other users other than applying decisions made by all users." So, they apply the decisions (consesuses). Anyway, I say keep. OptimisticFool 02:41, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
Yup, that's exactly right — sysops just look at the discussion, determine whether consensus has been reached, and if so, act accordingly. But the value of each user's input is based solely on the strength of their arguments. Trey56 02:59, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
Being a sysop does not improve your vote, but being a consistently trustworthy and cooperative editor does. That said, I propose we cut to the chase and simply tally any opinions that exist. I say keep. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:55, 13 November 2007 (UTC)
Actually, when you look at the article now, it looks pretty good. There's sections about them getting along, working together and not getting along and everything. It's a lot better than it was originally when it was just a list of toons featuring both characters. Keep. – The Chort 19:50, 18 November 2007 (UTC)
Remove. It should be under the respective character pages. Awexome 04:36, 23 November 2007 (UTC)
You can't turn an article into a redirect for 2 pages, can you? Anyway, I was neutral towards keeping the old version, but I feel this one is valid enough to keep. There are no unnotable instances of them being together on it. Bad Bad Guy 04:21, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
If we can have an article on Strong Bad and Coach Z's Relationship, it would be double standards to have one but not the other if both articles are well written. – The Chort 19:29, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Lets keep it.after all,its pretty decent page Coach B (Talk | contribs) 03:51, 30 November 2007 (UTC) (left unsigned)

Awexome, are you suggesting that we merge all Character Relationships with their respective character pages? Or would there be a valid reason to merge this specific relationship page with Bubs and Strong Bad? Otherwise, it looks like more people are navigating toward "keep" lately. I'd say it's about time we got this figured out; does anyone else want to weigh in? Can we get rid of the {{tbd}} yet? =] OptimisticFool 04:22, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

This article has gotten better than the last time I voted. I guess it wouldn't be bad to keep it. Homestar-Winner (talk) 01:30, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] the process

While Bubs may have been arguing with Strong Bad, but that doesn't mean Strong Bad told The Cheat to set Bubs' foot on fire and on bees. Should we delete it? 01:02, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Delete? No, they're still in conflict. Perhaps "prompting" isn't the best word; there's a chance that they planned to torture Bubs no matter what he did. But I can't think of another way to phrase it, and I don't think it's bad the way it is. StrongAwesome 01:15, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
Oh, all right. Now if only somebody answered my other questions... 01:34, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
