[edit] Do we need this?

These uses of trench coats are not a running gag, they are just a few uses of them when they are appropriate for a scene. Seems like Spoons to me. Homestar-Winner (talk) 12:29, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

I am split. It is starting to become a running gag because it is showing up more and more often. But it is also is a spoon. Hmmmmm.... I will go with Keep it for now. The-homsarrunner 22:13, 2008 March 22
According to the Inclusion Guidelines, for Page content relating to a very generic item or even: Needs at least five to ten appearances and must be of at least moderate importance to the toon (i.e. not just in the background and never mentioned) in half of its appearances. Trench Coats don't cut the mustard, or any other yellow condiments for that matter. DeleteFlashfight 21:08, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
Ok we can Delete this page but i will keep it archived because it will become a page someday. The-homsarrunner 00:40, 2008 March 24
MediaWiki does that for us. Any sysop can retrieve any deleted page at anytime. —Flashfight 00:44, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
I've deleted this page; as Flashfight said, trench coats are a generic items, and there are really only 3.5 different appearances here, since the your funeral footage is also in DNA Evidence. Also, the three trench coats listed are unrelated to each other, so there's no common thread there to hold this page together. Given a few more trench coats that play important roles in toons, I could see this page being resurrected, but until then, it's just not substantial enough. Trey56 01:05, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] What the PFARGL?

It would seem that when trench coats was moved to Trench Coats it got linked up to an old talk page for an already deleted version. Could we delete the article again? wbwolf (t | ed) 17:25, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

[edit] It's back

The following has been moved from Talk:trench coats.

I thought about this one a bit before tagging it for discussion. The reason I question if this is really worth an article is that trench coats are relatively ordinary item, and their use in the H*R universe is not particularly out-of-the-ordinary. So even though there are three appearances, I'm not sure there's need for this article. Heimstern Läufer 12:23, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

So, you think this is a spoon? If so, I agree. DEI DAT VSAdatvsa center\super contra 13:24, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
I really think we could get out of the habit of calling pages "spoons". It's the inclusion guidelines that tell what sort of things we include and not include. (Not to mention the calling an article a spoon is kind of meaningless; surely it ought to be phrased more like "This is the sort of article described in HRWiki:Spoons.") Anyway, the point it that it seems to be a common object without enough unusual appearances to constitute a running gag. Heimstern Läufer 14:23, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
I agree that none of the appearances is out of the ordinary, and this article should be deletedLoafing 16:16, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
Besides, it was deleted once before already. wbwolf (t | ed) 17:28, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
Agree with delete, for all reasons stated above. — Defender1031Talk  21:47, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
Sorry to bring this up again, but I think the article should exist. (I tried to create it and was warned I was recreating a deleted page) I don't think that the trench coat is similar to the spoon, they are not very ordinary items. For instance, Berets are about just as common as Trench Coats. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 19:03, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
