TALK PAGES ARE NO LONGER USED

Does this need a page? It's a cute trivia note at best and could be mentioned somewhere else, but otherwise it has little relevance, and in particular, the links (I had to google to figure out what the heck "junk shot" had to do with B.P. Richfield) are just confusing. It feels kind of tabloidish. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 05:28, January 10, 2011 (UTC)
- I think it's kind of neat. I was tickled with geek pride to see the news item on ToughPigs today. Would it be worth keeping if we collected some notable uses of the word? I would love to hear what Sesame Workshop tweets about it, and especially to hear Frank Oz's reaction. What if we moved it to nom and made the article less about the organization and more about the word? — scarecroe 19:43, January 10, 2011 (UTC)
- Yeah, my issues aren't with "nom" but with the way the article reads overall, and especially this section: "In preliminary rounds, "nom" was up against "fat-finger", "junk" (as in "junk shot", "junk status", and "don't touch my junk"), and "vuvuzela" in the category "Most Useful," where the link choices seem forced and that whole passage really has nothing to do with the Wiki. So either a nom page or a note on Cookie Monster would work (but probably "nom" would be better, and put it in Category:Sesame Street Culture for now). -- Andrew Leal (talk) 23:59, January 10, 2011 (UTC)
- Various revisions made, and the links were removed. However, the preliminary round aspect is useful, as none of the news outlets I've seen have mentioned the rounds existed, let alone "why". -- Zanimum 03:59, January 11, 2011 (UTC)
