Something tells me some person on the Homestar Runner Fanstuff Wiki is actually gonna make this. aka the IP GUY (Timestamp: 08:28, 9 September 2008 (UTC))

The fanstuff is down, but once it's back up, yeah, probably. It won't be me. (BTW, this is a forum discussion. Use the forum for it. DrPepper42 00:21, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] To be discussed

I'm probably going to be controversial but here goes. Right now, over on the talk page for Kewpie Dan, there is a discussion over whether the article should be merged and redirected to Dan or not. Both articles are about minor characters that don't really interact with Strong Bad. Of course, Hungry Shark has a more prominent role than Kewpie Dan, who only appeared in a weird, obscure Easter Egg. But Hungry Shark might just be a product of Strong Bad's imagination; there probably isn't even a real "Hungry Shark Emails" show. And we don't have articles for other minor characters that appear briefly, such as 42 year-old online game playing man-child that still lives with his ex-wife's parents or The Baba Jaga. If we're going to delete other similar pages such as Kewpie Dan, isn't there a possibility of double standards occuring? Thus I recommend that this article should not be kept. – The Chort 15:02, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

Well, as I'm opposed to Kewpie's deletion/merging, you could probably have guessed I'd support keeping here, too. I think here, the case is a little stronger for keeping, also, since Hungry Shark has a speaking role. That does some to increase his notability. Heimstern Läufer 15:31, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
Maybe we could just merge all of Strong Bad's doodles and drawings into Drawings, or something along that line. ThePizz Pick 16:32, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

What would an article about drawings contain? While Strong Bad has made several drawings, they're typically important enough for their own articles (Teen Girl Squad, Trogdor etc.) This is why I'm generally skeptical of the merging trend that's come up lately: We seem to be all about eliminating as many small articles by lumping them into disunified collections of information or into groups of which the various members are already notable.

How about something like Minor Drawings or List of Strong Bad's Drawings? Strongkinghomsarsmith 04:48, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

I think that since the shark have a speaking part, he's a character, and therefor should have a page. This is enough for me, at least, but I tried to think if there was a case where someone with a speaking part in a toon didn't get a page and I couldn't remember anything like that. If there is such case where someone who speaks doesn't have it's own page then please mention it here. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 04:54, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Uh, aren't the things that appear once supposed to have pages, because they're interesting? Plus, H.S. has a speaking part. Keep it!

Ok, I mulled over this article last night and finally realised something. Never mind Kewpie Dan, this article is almost identical to Anonymous. If Anonymous is allowed to be kept, so should Hungry Shark. Please disregard any concerns that I had on double standards; it seems that, in fact, deleting this article would be an example of that. But I still think we should have a page on The Baba Jaga. – The Chort 20:50, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
