[edit] Deletion

Bottomless Pits, eh? Ok, if we talk only about pits which actually have no bottom, we're in a quagmire. So this must be meant to document pits which are touted as bottomless. I eliminated the world-class hole, as there's no claim whatsoever as to its bottomlessness. So what's left?

Teen Girl Squad - yes, this is a bottomless pit.
Pay Plus - yes, they were going for the bottomless pit. - It's a trap door, but is that meant to be bottomless? Where is it mentioned it was bottomless?
Cool Things - It's a "death hole", but is neither bottomless nor touted as bottomless.

So, two actual bottomless pits, and 2 (was 3) filler items. I wonder if this even deserves a page, considering we routinely deny such status until there are 3 or more clear examples. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:55, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Adding - I suggested Dropping be deleted because it was an attempt to do what was done here, but I wonder if the annony had a better idea... to document people dropping into holes. Still, it's rather silly and perhaps too broad for a page. I felt it should be mentioned here for discussion. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:58, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
Keep. It's happened many times. It's funny. It's random. It's fine.
I lean towards keeping this one too. I agree that the appearance in is not a bottomless pit (maybe this one should be removed). I do think that the death hole fits with the bottomless pits, though. When you first see it, you expect it to be bottomless, and so does Homestar (he screams as if it is a very deep pit). So even though it's not actually bottomless, the joke is that you think it's going to be bottomless. I guess I repeated myself there. Anyway, this one's borderline, but I feel that there's enough here to keep it. Trey56 22:43, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Minor Rename

Shouldn't this page be titled "Bottomless pits" rather than "Bottomless Pits" ? (Caps) OptimisticFool 17:02, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

No. All of the pages have caps for all words of the title (except "the", "and", etc...) — Defender1031*Talk 17:04, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
That's not entirely true; maybe Single-button remote control should be capitalized, then. Anyway, I guess it's Wikipedia's style that I'm thinking of. (Ha! Here's a random example: Chronic functional abdominal pain.) OptimisticFool 17:18, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
We've never really established standards for caps in titles, actually. Some of us, myself included, would prefer to move more toward Wikipedia's style of using sentence case for articles that are not the titles of Toons, which should be in title case (since they appear that way on H* However, there's something of a tradition of using title case for all articles. That's the essential reason for these inconsistencies. This might be worth bringing up at HRWiki talk:Manual of Style. Heimstern Läufer 07:12, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
