[edit] Fish

Just a note: right now, Fish includes appearances of whales. So, either the whale appearances should be removed from that page, or this page should be deleted, so that the information isn't listed in two places. Trey56 16:17, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Well as the Fish page says, Whales aren't exactly fish. But as this is a Homestar wiki and not a taxonomy wiki, I see no problem with only having the fish page. Plus there are only two references to Whales, so they don't really merit their own page גשמלדרברגן (Geshmalder) 16:24, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
I'm not the biggest fan of our current biologically incorrect way of doing it. Note also that there is also one reference to whales not listed here: "Vote Whales" from Strong Bad is a Bad Guy. Heimstern Läufer 16:28, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Actually come to think of it, there are more than two whale references, something that a glance at Fish confirmed. In that case, I would say it's a toss-up. Either way all the Whale stuff should be on one page. גשמלדרברגן (Geshmalder) 16:30, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
I disagree. I think that this wiki should be renamed to the Taxonomy Wiki. REDIRECT That is after adding that missing ref, and strongly emphasizing the lack of taxonomy. Otherwise. Rename fish to "Sea Creatures". --Stux 16:31, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
I feel like whales fall into the "everyday object" category more than the "running gag" category, so they really need quite a few appearances to merit their own page. So, I guess I lean toward keeping them on the Fish page, but perhaps they could be organized into their own section on that page. Also, the Sea Creatures idea Stux proposed isn't so bad.

I also like the idea he proposed. Let's give it a try. I'm on it! --Stux 17:08, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Given that I have made sweeping changes on a semi-whim. I'm leaving the discussion tag on this page. If the changes seem adequate, someone else please remove the tag. --Stux 17:17, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
No, I think it looks great — good work! Trey56 17:33, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Hmm...actually, I'm reconsidering my position. Are whales a running gag on their own? If so, they should have their own page apart from Sea Creatures, which is just a list of appearances. If the discussion Talk:Prawns#Merge results in keeping that page separate, then perhaps we should discuss making this page separate again. Trey56 19:35, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

No prob. I was thinking that there were way more than just two instances of whales when I organized all the info. But now its organized and it can be un-organized. Waiting on the Talk:Prawns#Merge discussion might help. One problem is we have 3 closely related discussions going on in two or 3 different pages. --Stux 01:54, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
