[edit] Delete?

This is probably the most pointless page I've ever seen. Can we delete it? — talk Bubsty edits 18:50, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Pointless? It covers an item from the Homestar Runner universe. I'm sure there are lots of people that think even having a Wiki dedicated to recording everything about an online cartoon is pointless. No, we don't delete articles just because someone thinks they are pointless. -- Tom 18:52, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
oh yes we do. i'm going with bubsty. see ya. Seriously 18:50, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

don't you think this should be deleted? not only does it make an extremely small cameo, but it is unclear where it came from. i mean, why make an article about something that doesn't have even the smallest influence on the caracters?m Seriously 18:53, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

I've gotta side with Tom. I'd never heard of this before this page was made. I mean, it could use a bit of fixage, but it's definently worth something. Thunderbird 19:01, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
I only have one condition for keeping: fix that pic! It looks kinda bad. But otherwise, this is a good article, with actual info on an actual object. --DorianGray
ah well. maybe you guys are right. but only 'cause it's thunderbird!!!!Seriously 03:58, 1 January 2006 (UTC)
I have no vote either way, but I'd like to point out: um, doesn't this have a mention in Homestar Presents: Presents#Real-World References? In fact, there's more info on it there than in this article! If that fact were linked to the 'Pedia article instead of here, what would be missing? {Disclaimer: Because of my "there's a reason for stubs" doctrine, I could also be in favor of keeping it.}AbdiViklas 21:32, 2 January 2006 (UTC)
I think this page should be a stub. We don't know much about it. It may appear in another cartoon. Maybe as a car or something else. But seriously, instead of deleting it, I think it should be a stub. Bluebry muffin 14:06, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

I'm thinking that this should be deleted, and we need to make a rule/guideline for dealing with minor item pages. It should be something like this: Items should have a page of their own only if they play a prominent role in a toon, or are an extemely important item in the H*R universe. Granted, this is still subjective, but it makes the decision a little easier. Using this rule, we can say that School Paste should be deleted, and King Castlefunny Pencil Moistener is only hanging on by a thread and could very well be deleted. —BazookaJoe 14:36, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

I don't mind this page. I think that it is a nice article and is pretty nice to have. And blueberry muffin, a stub isn't a short article. It is an article that can be expanded on. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 16:19, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
'Keep. This page is informative on a real-life product used on the site. Not everyone knows about it (like me) and it's too big to belong in a single Fun FactTM. Articles about small things like that is why I love this wiki. Somewhere, some fan likes this game and search for it on the wiki. Do you want to disappoint him? Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:10, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
I'm kinda neutral on this one. I mean, School Paste has appeared twice, and therefore (in my mind) qualifies as an inside joke. The King Castlefunny Pencil Moistener is mentioned by Strong Bad, and appears in an Easter egg. This capsela set is neither of these. On the other hand, it has enough info to make a solid article. I don't really care what happens to this one. You guys can fight it out on your own. Has Matt? (talk) 17:22, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
Actually, Has Matt has changed my mind. I don't really care. But the pencil moistener is very important. If a reader is reading the transcript and sees King Castlefunny Pencil Moistener, they might wonder. Personally, I think anything mentioned in a transcript, unless inside joke, should have its own seperate page. Anything not in a transcript or not an inside joke should be deleted. --Bluebry muffin 23:09, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
I had never heard of a Capsula before this, and don't really get it. Plus this got like 1 second of screen time. Delete. It's senseless to have a page for this and not for every random thing displayed on screen. Qermaq 03:37, 17 February 2006 (UTC)
  • Actually, I've had a change of heart on this one. Keep. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:52, 27 February 2006 (UTC)
Keep it! I fondly remember these things, but I would never have noticed this item if it had been buried in some other article instead of having its own. Trey56 15:44, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
My brother had capsella (and he's even younger than Qermaq!) I think that this was a late 70's item. I don't mind keeping it. I R F 15:58, 14 December 2006 (UTC)
On one hand,it only appeared in one toon and is only visible for about a split second.On the other hand,it provides information about a Capsela which is pretty intresting.So for now,I'm neutral. Rondleman! Stuff I did.Talk. 23:14, 15 November 2009 (UTC)
This is not a current discussion. We decided to keep this about three years ago. --DorianGray 05:10, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Wikipedia?

Shouldn't the external link be to the wikipedia? like, here? I know it's not a very good description, but I thought it was the rules or something. SaltyTalk! 04:24, 6 December 2005 (UTC)
