[edit] David Bowie

The David Bowie fact is fine the way it is. Stop deleting information from it. First of all, it has gone through the STUFF process, but even if it hadn't, it shouldn't be changed. Here's why:

  • The introductory sentence (with "look david bowie") is really more like an extension of the walkthrough. Just as in transcripts, it's better not to have links in this area.
  • We have a long tradition of giving a sentence-or-two summary of the relevant parts of a Wikipedia article. You shouldn't have to click on the link to get a suitable explanation, especially when you would have to wade through quite a bit of information just to arrive at what we already have on our article page.
  • The three subbullets address the important points in an ordered, concise, and clear manner, and then the last one ties in the subject matter to another H*R reference.

"The introductory sentence (with "look david bowie") is really more like an extension of the walkthrough. Just as in transcripts, it's better not to have links in this area."

A lot of facts have links in dialogue. Heck, the virus transcript links to the "quadratic formula". --TROGGA! 18:50, 23 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Yes, you're right. In certain cases a link in the transcript is appropriate. But notice I said it's better to have links separate from the transcript, which is our standard procedure. There is an even more compelling reason, however: "look david bowie" is all lowercase (capitalizing the name generates an error), but "David Bowie," a proper noun, should be capitalized in the link. — It's dot com 19:26, 23 Jul 2005 (UTC)

You shouldn't have to click on the link to get a suitable explanation, especially when you would have to wade through quite a bit of information just to arrive at what we already have on our article page."

Then what's the point of Wikipedia links? --TROGGA! 18:50, 23 Jul 2005 (UTC)
A fun fact should give just enough information that the user could be satisfied with it alone. It's like the featured article on the Main Page. It's long enough to give relevant facts, but not nearly as long as the real article. In this case, a user shouldn't have to read the whole David Bowie article, searching for the words Tin Machine and Ziggy Stardust, just to find out what we could tell him or her in a couple of sentences apiece. On the other hand, if the user wants more in-depth info, the link is right there for them to keep reading. We're trying to make it easier on everyone, not harder. — It's dot com 19:26, 23 Jul 2005 (UTC)

"The three subbullets address the important points in an ordered, concise, and clear manner, and then the last one ties in the subject matter to another H*R reference."

Umm, I don't think Strong Sad as Bowie/Ziggy Stardust in Halloween Fairstival is a reference to TDM2. --TROGGA! 18:50, 23 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I didn't say it was. I said that the two independent references are tied together by a common theme. — It's dot com 19:26, 23 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Closed STUFF

[edit] 504 Characters of Doom

David Bowie is a famous English rock artist whose career has spanned from the '60s to the present. Tin Machine was a four-piece rock band he formed from 1989 to 1992. Ziggy Stardust was an androgynous character David Bowie invented and performed as for his classic 1972 album, Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Thy Dungeonman rejects the "Tin Machine era" when David Bowie dressed in suits with a mustache and beard and prefers the Ziggy Stardust persona, who wore wild, Japan-influenced outfits and the wild red hair which Strong Sad wears in Halloween Fairstival.

[edit] Ripberger

Riberger is not a character from Cheat Commadoes. The name on Cheat Commando is silent rip. Ripberger refers to a character in the Lucas Arts game Wikipedia:Full Throttle.Blue Leopard 02:13, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Ripberger of the Cheat Commandos. --DorianGray

Thy Dungeonman predates Cheat Commandos, this is the original use of Ripberger and must have come from the game Full Throttle. Ripberger became a cheat commando later. It should also be noted that Strong Bad's Floppy_Disk_Container has a few Lucas Arts games in it. Blue Leopard 03:37, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

It does list both. Real World Refs lists your Full Throttle guy, and Fast Forward lists the Cheat Commando. I dun see what the problem is. --DorianGray

Woops, for some reason I didn't see the reference, my bad. Blue Leopard 08:52, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

No problem. Sometimes it's easy to glance over certain facts. --DorianGray

[edit] King Ghraham

In the office they mention King Arthur, King Ghraham, and David Bowie.

I think Graham is a reference to Graham Chapman, who played King Arthur in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Graham is a charcter from King's Quest. JudgeDeadd 18:16, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Dan vs. Dennis

Typing "dan" or "dennis" on the enter name screen doesn't seem to do anything special, but they're both listed as "other commands". What's up? I think I could be missing something. --Garfunkel 20:59, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Dennis is a thing like "South, West, North, or East" on Thy Dungeonman II. I don't know what "Dan" is. --TheThin 21:27, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, maybe my comment title was confusing. I couldn't think of a good one. What I'm meaning to say is that.. well, here's a quoted portion of the "other commands" list.

"dan, dan (on enter name screen), dance, dennis, dennis (on enter name screen)"

The enter name screen doesn't (appear to) give a special response for "dan" or "dennis", so I was wondering why they're listed like that. --Garfunkel 22:09, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Score!

Okay, aside from "GET FLASK", is it possible to get 100 points? I looked at David Bowie, collected all items, scoured the maze for every last l/m/hongrel, asked about craftsman tools, and stil get 96 points at the end. Where are the missing four? --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 06:30, 23 August 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Led Zeppelin?

Dude, its true. Look at the album cover of Led Zeppelin III. it does look like that. --Jangles5150 21:50, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Many games, albums etc. that had sequels, second volumes etc. use Roman numerals. It's a huge stretch to say this title refers to any one, even if they're in the same font of something. Heimstern Läufer 21:55, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] JtHM reference? It's a stretch...

"Severe exploding of the head" When Johnny C. (from the comic book "Johnny the Homicidal Maniac") accidentally killed himself and went to heaven, he found that he had the ability to make other peoples' heads explode. Ok, this is probably just another witty comment by TBC, but there's a slim chance.

[edit] Font

Aren't fonts insignificant? Awexome 19:44, 27 November 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Name Descriptions

Could someone provide all the descriptions of whatever name you put in, with definitions when necessary? Awexome 19:46, 27 November 2007 (UTC)


[edit] How do you play?

Aside from selcting it in this article, how do you choose to play this game? It is not in the games menu, (even though both it's sequel and prequel are...)

[edit] Significance of brooch bracelet

What is the significance of the "emerald, bauble-encrusted brooch bracelet" cluched in the dead Dongrel's claws in the game? As I've seen from the commands, you cannot get the brooch bracelet, nor is it mentioned in the ending. So tell me, what is the significance of the brooch bracelet?!?!?!?!?!?


[edit] Nintendo!!!!

I found out that if you try to give something to something or someone and don't have it,The nintendo gameboy ends up being mensioned. --Mariofan1000 17:58, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
