Puppet nav

Regarding "where is the rule": I'm not sure if there's one set in stone, per se, but it's been followed in practice. For example, Homestar and the Nice Present and all the DVD puppetry aren't linked from the chain of pages in the nav, which, other than this one, matches the pages in the Puppet Stuff section of the TV Time Toons Menu.

Ah, I see. That is very informative DEIDATVM! I didn't know there was DVD puppetry that wasn't linked by this nav. I think this leaves us in somewhat of a quandry in my opinion: with the recent increase of using alternative media sources to deliver H*R content (besides the website) we are beginning to be left with "random" media that doesn't fit into any specific category and is not linked from anywhere convenient that would facilitate discovery. Right now, all these items have in common are the Puppet Stuff Category which is not always the first place people look for articles. We don't even have a template specific to these DVD puppet items. And so, if we follow a strict practice of limiting the navigation to toons menu items, we risk stranding articles such as these more than other items. I'm open to good suggestions to resolve this issue. Until then, I'd prefer to lean towards a more flexible inclusion process for this and other navigation tools. --Stux 23:08, 2 November 2019 (UTC)
You make a good point that there's no template for DVD Puppet items. Maybe a broader {{Puppet Stuff}} template could be made to list puppet stuff, be it on the toons menu, DVD or otherwise? It could perhaps list characters like The Exact Same and Shark-Tooth Bubs too. DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra 04:02, 6 November 2019 (UTC)
I support a Puppet Stuff template. Then we can remove the navigation links at the top. This undocumented social media video with a puppet seems out of place listed alongside official puppet stuff toons and such. HweEloR.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 21:59, 7 November 2019 (UTC)

Seems like a good template to me. Also, good job on getting the videos the Puppet Stuff page missed. DEI DAT VMdatvm center\super contra 21:35, 5 April 2020 (UTC)
