I fail to see the purpose of the page. It is nothing but a location of wild speculation. First of all, I highly doubt it's the center of time and space, as Strong Sad only said that it's ''like'' he's the master of time and space in here. And then as DumDe said, even ''if'' Strong Sad somehow was the master of time and space, how do we know he's in the center of it? - {{User:Joshua/sig}} 14:19, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Talk Moved From "The Center of Time and Space"

Looks more like the Windows screensaver to me!--Tiggera 17:43, 21 Sep 2004 (MST)

Did anybody see the opening screen to Myst?

The centre?

How do we know that this place is the centre of time and space? Is it just wild speculation? --Upsilon 10:54, 30 Mar 2005 (MST)

The centre? Where did that come from? It looks slightly to the left of the centre if you ask me...--80.195.190.235 22:53, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Moved

I fail to see the purpose of the page. It is nothing but a location of wild speculation. First of all, I highly doubt it's the center of time and space, as Strong Sad only said that it's like he's the master of time and space in here. And then as DumDe said, even if Strong Sad somehow was the master of time and space, how do we know he's in the center of it? - Joshua 14:19, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Points of information:
  1. I'm pretty sure that the name of this page came from the ghosts#Easter Eggs description that reads: The scene changes to Strong Sad in the center of all Time and Space, where he will sing a song for you. If we're being picky about the title, it should probably be fixed there as well.
  2. It is also called the center of all Time and Space here. It is linked here as well
  3. Should this page be deleted, this talk should be moved to ghost's talk page.
  4. Should this page not be deleted, a copy of the song might be appropriate.
  5. The picture has a link to this page. The image page history shows that the picture was originally unnamed, and what was probably at the time the most appropriate name given.
I really like the picture. At least it's used in the Places page. Needed or not, this page has ramifications far and wide it seems. --Stux 14:48, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
now that we have an article on Space it does seem a bit pointless. — talk Bubsty edits 19:03, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
But this is the center of time and space. They're different. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 19:06, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
Pointless? I don't think things that we do here are pointless. People have put time and effort into this article. It is not pointless. -- Tom 19:06, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
It may not be pointless, but it does need to be renamed. If I went into a closet and said "I feel like I'm a cave explorer in here" would that make the closet a cave? Strong Sad's probably in a dark room somewhere with stars in the background, or maybe somewhere in outer space if you want to get creative, but probably not in the center of space and time. - Joshua 19:15, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Strong Keep. Good name. Been here for a while. And a great image. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 19:41, 11 November 2005 (UTC)

Yes, you are right, it is not an entirely correct title. However, TBC never bothered to give it a title, and so i think artistic liberties were taken when the title was thought up. The feeling the place conveys makes the title very appropriate in its context. There are many things that we've had to name of TBC's behalf, this one well, we were more liberal about.

But this isn't the place for "fanstuff"-like names such as this. When we attach names for unnamed things, we always keep it as straight-foward as possible, using some concrete feature to name it. (Like Strong Bad's Drill, 20X6 The Cheat, and The Garage) We even changed the slightly "fanstuff-y" name The Guy at the Depot to Old-Timey Bubs. "Center" isn't even mentioned by Strong Sad and is made up by the wiki. I thought we didn't make up stuff and call it fact at the knowledge base. We should go with a more specific title. Like Space. - Joshua 22:31, 11 November 2005 (UTC)
Hear hear!! — talk Bubsty edits 18:41, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
We had "The Guy with the Huge Mouth" for a long time, and we still would if it weren't for that poster. — It's dot com 18:48, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
Marge it with Outer Space. The whole two sentences of it. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 18:50, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
Upon my recent revelation, I would have to agree that artistic liberties have been taken in the naming of this article. This should be merged with Space and deleted redirected. All links, as well as ghosts#Easter eggs, should be changed to Space. —BazookaJoe 19:04, 12 November 2005 (UTC)
