Talk:Office of The Brothers Chaps

This needs some editing for spelling, grammar and removing the speculative parts (how do we know which way is north? etc...). I'm also curious why it's necessary to point out that all the mice are real mice. Do they have history of keeping fake ones on their desks plugged into their computers?  Green Helmet 18:57, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Shouldn't the title be "The Brothers Chaps' House"? --DorianGray 19:42, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
No. This article does not describe TBC's house. It describes their workplace, which is described thus: "Where we work is, is pretty, you know, we work in a kind of a depressing strip mall which is always good." (See Georgia Tech - 26 Apr 2007) But I don't know what name to give this article. OptimisticFool 19:49, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

You know OptimisticFool, what they said was "in a kind of depressing strip mall", that technically doesen't mean they work in a strip mall. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 22:12, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

I got rid of the North thing, and you can easily see in Making of Email 100, the mice are real mice. I'll double check to be sure. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 22:12, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

1st...yes, we know the mice are real (probably). We don't need to point that out.
2nd...If we do decide to keep it, rename to "The Brothers Chaps' Office" or something of the sort.
3rd...Should we keep it at all? I just think TBC (at least, I would) find it a lil' bit creepy that people are noting everything in their office space.
Just for the record, I think we might as well keep it (and possibly rename), because Videlectrix Office got one, and it's kind of in the same realm as this (plus, the VX Office is part of TBC's office). But, we probably don't need to note everything on their desk, every band we can ID from the sound booth bulletin board (we don't have that right now, but there's a pretty good chance someone will find the time to do it). Just a brief description of the office'll probably do. My hands hurt from typing, so I'll stop there. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 22:26, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

I think we should keep the current title because you can see the this section of the page which I will do as soon as I can. I think all the detail I put in should stay. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 22:32, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

But, it's not their house...they don't work from their houses. Look at Optimistic Fool's post above for more info. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 22:44, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

As I see his post, I know The Brothers Chaps would not get a whole another house for an office as I can prove their "office" is part of their house through several DVD Bonus Contents. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 23:04, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

You obviously didn't look at it close enough, then. It's not another house, its an office within a strip mall, just so we're clear. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 23:14, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Since no one has complete proof of if it's their house or not, I propose we end this conversation within the talk page as it is flooding the recent changes page. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 23:17, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

We don't close discussions because they're flooding RC. Heimstern Läufer 02:54, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
I propose (unless we agree to delete it) that we at least move this to "The Brothers Chaps' Office". Mas, you still didn't seem to look close enough at OF's post earlier. It shows just one of many quotes from TBC that confirm they work in a strip mall...not their house. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 04:42, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
Mas12806, by all means, please elaborate on your claim: "I can prove their 'office' is part of their house through several DVD Bonus Contents" .. I just don't buy it. OptimisticFool 05:12, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
I think calling it their office makes sense. It clearly is that, regardless of where it's located. Heimstern Läufer 05:14, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

I'm thinking it's their house, but this is a Community here on the Wiki, we should have different opinions sometimes and maybe even arguments. I propose we revert the title to "The Brothers Chaps Workplace", until or unless one of us finds any more information. How does that sound? Please write your comments via this talk page. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 12:06, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

How about we keep this discussion on this page and not on you talk page? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 12:09, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Alright. We'll keep the discussion within this talk page. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 12:20, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

Mas, there IS proof that it's not their house. please reread what OF said. — Defender1031*Talk 14:39, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

I see. The strip mall thing. I got it. So, should I change the page title? —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 16:51, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

I'd wait until we reach a consensus on the "deleted status" of the page. I actually feel it's a good page and should be kept (for some reason, I'm kind of amazed no one's thought of this page before now). DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 23:09, 5 October 2008 (UTC)

WHOA WHOA WHOA Defender1031 slow down! The new page should not be pending deletion! Why did you do that? —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 22:34, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

He tagged it for deletion so he could move the original page there. Moving an article to a new name is the way to go, as it preserves the article's history. Your approach of creating a new copy of the article would leave us with two versions of it! Also, please note that he then decided to move the article to Office instead of Workplace, as this is actually what was discussed here on the talk page (and also more appropriate). He also redirected the "workplace" article to the new one to make sure there is really only one copy. In conclusion: if an article is to be renamed, moving it is the way to go. And never move an article to a new name before it's been discussed properly on a talk page and a consensus has been reached. Loafing 22:42, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
Got it Loafing. Sorry about that. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 22:48, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
No problem at all! Loafing 23:08, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
I just trimmed some of the article down, and added some extra info about the office as well. Do you think we should still add some of the more descriptive details about the office (such as computers' actual names and companies from whence they came, extra prop info, etc.)? DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 23:23, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Eric Conveys an Emotion

In this installment of Eric Conveys an Emotion, there are some different camera angles that might help in describing this place. There even seems to be a storage room(?) (complete with mini fridge and microwave) that I haven't seen anywhere else. OptimisticFool 00:05, 8 October 2008 (UTC)

Why doesen't the Emotion Eric Interview have a page on the Wiki? Someone create it please, and put the page in the Interviews page. And when doing, upload all images from to the Wiki so they can be posted on the page, and then we can use some of those images (mainly the storage room closet image), on this page. —Mas12806 (talk·contribs) 05:03, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Current status - a different office?

I don't think TBC use this workspace anymore. In general I am referencing the many photos from the Eric interview to see what the rooms looked like. The last "confirmed sighting" in the office that I can find is prior to 2010:

  • Eric Conveys an Emotion interview (early 2008)
  • Workin' on the Game (May 2008)
  • Potentially Sbemailiarized! (March 2009) - the brief live-action segment might be in the office though I don't recognize the particular room; it could also be in one of their homes.

As of 2014, there are a few things that make me suspect that at some point they stopped renting this office:

Several recent indoor sightings seem to have this same office. It can be identified by the beige wall color, gray carpet, wooden trim, and white ceiling; sometimes a rust-colored curtain can be seen.

If I am missing anything that shows they still are at the same place (or more definite confirmation that they moved) please do share! But, assuming TBC are working out of a new office, what would be the best way to address this? Make a new article and move this to "Prior Office of The Brothers Chaps"? Make the current article a subsection under "Prior Office" and add a new section detailing the new location? -- Bleu Ninja 19:45, 7 October 2021 (UTC)

Nice findings! I'm not sure how much there if there's enough to say about the new office to warrant a full page, so it could probably fit under a subsection for now. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 20:44, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
