Name change?

As I've been working on this, I've realized that almost all of the entries on this page are going to be countries. Also, "places" is rather non-specific, as it could include things like "Coach Z's Boudoir". I think what we're really interested in is Made-up Countries. Anybody object to me moving this page there?

But wouldn't we want to include made-up towns as well? I think we should keep the name, and specify in the intro that this is about geographical locations. Loafing 02:56, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
And then there's things like the Sweet Sweet Rainbow Bridge and Cubeland, which are different from either of those things. --DorianGray 03:31, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Real Fake Countries

Dortugal, Prance, and Potamia don't really belong here, because they weren't made up by the characters.

You bring up a great question — I'm not so sure. I was thinking about this, and I put them on here because I figured that In Search of the Yello Dello was kind of like a movie that the Homestar Runner characters did (they even made a commentary and deleted scenes). If it's a movie, then they're fictional places. Maybe I'm looking at this the wrong way, though... Trey56 05:47, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
Oops, I didn't see your reply and deleted it straight away. I think that even if the characters made up the Yello Dello movie, the places are part of the legitimate story-telling. I think that places in this article should be ones where characters insist that they are part of their "real" world. To cover up lies, for example. Loafing 05:53, 12 September 2007 (UTC)
So what should be included in the article? The suggestion of Sweet Sweet Rainbow Bridge (from flashback) would work. How about:
Any others that are missing? Either way, this page will wind up being part disambiguation, part miscellaneous catch all. Also, we already have a list of this sort wbwolf (t | ed) 19:58, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

2 Things

1. The stone bridge from personal favorites is made up right?

2. The tour map with the cool tapes in welcome back had many made up cities right?

The stone bridge later appeared for real in Date Nite. --DorianGray 23:17, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
What about number 2?
They're made up to us, but who's to say that they don't actually exist in the H*R universe and Cool Tapes really travelled to them? --DorianGray 23:27, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
Whatever. im too lazy to add them anyway. [[Image:Butterda.png]] 23:32, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

This article already exists

This article already excists. Here it is: Places#made up places. Can people who arent admins make it a subject for speedy deletion

I put the TBD Template. But I don't think it should be merged. Keep. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 00:04, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Ok but this article already has all the places on the places page. people can look at either one.
Keep. This is better because the Places page is mostly a list (like Characters). This goes into more depth. It also includes places of smaller significance that cannot be placed in the Places list, such as Totalslava. --DorianGray 00:09, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Should we add pictures to this page?
I can't think of any primary images. But Foops, I guess we could. User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 00:14, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
Keep is my vote. Definately goes into more depth. --Mario2.PNG Super Martyo boing! 02:48, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
