This subject is already covered in both Strong Mad and Nicknames and adds nothing that either those articles already do. Redirect — wbwolf (Talk | contribs) 20:40, 22 April 2009 (left unsigned)

Two things wrong with that. 1: It is NOT FREAKING COVER IN THE STRONG MAD PAGE! Stop saying it is. Secondly, I pruposed that they be seperated on the talk page, I I belive they should be. --Jellote 20:42, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
It's commonly enough used to merit its own page, and Jellote is correct that it is not, in fact, covered anywhere on the strong mad page. — Defender1031*Talk 20:47, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
The sentence "Strong Bad claims to cherish brother Graw Mad, his name of endeerment for his brother" is not detailed enough to argue that this subject is already covered on Strong Mad's article, but I'm not sure if it needs its own page either. Wow, that's a lot of appearances. BBG 20:50, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
As others have noted, this does have quite a few appearances. I'd support this page. - 20:51, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
There may be many occurrences, but other than "Someone referred to Strong Mad as Graw Mad", is there anything more to say about any of those occurrences? The origin of it from Little Girl's pronunciation is an interesting fact, but that is only one sentence. Is there anything else to be said about the moniker? If everything interesting that we have to say about the topic can be expressed in a sentence or two, and those things can fit appropriately on some existing page (or pages), then I think we should enrich those existing articles instead of creating a new article. 21:40, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Why not merge all the information from this article into a section on Strong Mad and redirect this article to that section? — It's dot com 23:19, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Why do merge them? This page is fine as is. --Jellote 23:22, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
While I may have overstated how much this subject is noted on the Strong Mad page, my main point still stands; as an individual page, it doesn't add that much (as opposed to the Stong Bad page). IDC has the right idea. wbwolf (t | ed) 23:31, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
Yes it does: It shows Strong Bad's nickname better than than [[[Nicknames]] does. Besides, a lot of pages already link here, so unless you want a huge mess of broken links and redirections I suggest we keep it.--Jellote 10:33, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
For one thing, it doesn't really make a mess at all. Nothing gets broken, and there's nothing inherently wrong with things redirecting. Secondly, do you really think people don't notice that the reason "a lot of pages link here" is because you spent the half hour before your last post making those links? 12:52, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm afraid I must agree that this article would be better redirected to Strong Mad. There nothing about this name I can see that causes it to merit coverage on a separate article. And I'm usually about the strongest anti-mergist at HRWiki. Here, though, I think we should merge. Heimstern Läufer 16:06, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
While I do not agree with Jellote's attitute throughout this discussion, I must admit that I'm leaning towards keeping this page where it is. At the very worst, I think redirecting to a section in the Strong Mad page is the best course of action. However, a full section in that page seems too much for it and I would expect the information to be eventually merged into his biography somewhere. But, having this page condensed into one or two lines might cut out much of the detail. Keeping it as is would do no harm and would easily allow for proper categorization and further appearances to be added as they were created. --Stux 17:27, 23 April 2009 (UTC)
After studying the page for a while, it's apparent that it's a full-fledged running gag (not to mention an inside joke). On those grounds, I wouldn't have a problem if it remained a separate article. — It's dot com 02:10, 24 April 2009 (UTC)
I've noticed that we have an article on Stong Bad, which is a name running gag/nickname used often by TBC on the website. Considering the number of appearances of "Graw Mad", I'd say the two articles could be considered equivalent to each other. Also, I've always wondered why Strong Mad has that weird nickname and now this article finally tells me why! Like It's dot com, I don't mind keeping this article separate, but does this mean we'll end up with a The Chort article next? – The Chort 17:14, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Only if someone else call him that, my young apprentice, The Chort will get his page. So are you suggesting we merge Graw Mad and Stong Bad? If so, how will we?--Jellote 20:57, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Keep 23:53, 10 May 2009
No, Jellote, I'm saying that if we have an article on Stong Bad, we might as well have an article on Graw Mad. Keep. – The Chort 16:50, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
It was a joke, The Chort. So it seems like we have a consensus, would we agree? Keep, it seems....--Jellote 19:41, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

[edit] I-mad-ge

I made this back in the day where uploading was a mystery to me. I have since updated my Flash and can no longer upload images, and cannot get a good one. I ask if anyone wants another image. If so, which should it be? I am partial towards the "graw mad" sticker in keep cool or the Cloitsterizer in garage sale. Which we gon' do? Either? Neither? Strong... Mad? --Jellote 20:20, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

The current image looks fine to me. Homestar-Winner (talk) 02:13, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
