[edit] Wipe! away your running gag troubles

I noticed in this edit that there might be enough material for a page on Paper towels. I don't know how serious the suggestion was, but I'd at least like to bring up the topic. So, first question:

  • Is there enough material on paper towels to warrant a page? Is it running gag worthy and all that jazz?

If there is, then what do we do?:

  1. Hijack this page and turn it into a paper towel page (I doubt it)
  2. create a paper towel page using the edit above as base and link these two pages? (seems more reasonable).

I'd like to know everyone's opinion. --Stux 15:17, 30 December 2019 (UTC)

I'm on the fence about whether to do anything at all, but if we do, it should definitely be #2 IMO. In-universe brands and items tend to get their own pagers irrespective of if they're also part of a running gag with a general form of that item. — Defender1031*Talk 16:24, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
(I guess this isn't really relevant to what we're discussing, but this isn't a new suggestion. The idea of a Paper Towels article has been thrown around for quite some time, hence why the edit was made so hastily in an "attempt to get something done".)
As for the discussion at hand, I agree that the page should be created (or merged with Towels or the yet-to-be-created Toilet Paper) and WIPE! kept separate. (I'm sure anonny would've created a separate page if they had the pri-va-la-ges.) Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:18, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
In addition, I drew up a merge between Towels and Paper Towels shortly thereafter. The Knights Who Say Ni 05:37, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
Toilet paper should have it's own page. I'm on the fence about whether paper towels should be included in the towels page or have their own. -50.234.189.37 22:42, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
In keeping consistent with other pages like it, this page should stay as is per what Defender said. The Knights Who Say Ni 05:37, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
I think they meant Towels, not WIPE!. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 07:19, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
...I wasn't specifically addressing anonny 50. The Knights Who Say Ni 17:56, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
Right. Of course. Sorry. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:38, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
I don't want to have to vandalize pages, but I can't think of a better way to signal attention. I'd at least like to thank who promptly created the Ina-Pro-Pro article minutes after I hastily wrote it. Thanks, Stux. I'm still waiting on someone to create the Toilet Paper page. Given the frequency and context that it appears, it must be very necessary. -- 68.37.43.131 01:59, 4 January 2020 (UTC)
