Earbuds, headware?

I'll take your word, but if they're headware, why aren't they listed as head? --DogGunn 08:23, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

I think he's making the distinction between "headwear" and Hats; headwear is anything on your head (including Misc. Items), hats are hats — WindPower 08:36, 4 July 2010 (UTC)
That's generally how we've described them so far. -Firestorm 08:42, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

Hat Describing Contest Vs. "Nothing."

Will "Nothing." description be replaced? Or will it just be a minor description? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Sinic (talk) • (contribs) 2010-08-27T20:27:46

"Nothing" is just a minor description that appears in the game. As the hat describing contest will require a minimum of 50 words its unlikely to be replaced. --Picard lm(de) 00:37, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Worth Noting?

When made Vintage, Ze Goggles aren't properly worded. You wouldn't say Vintage The Kritzkrieg, it's The Vintage Kritzkrieg. Yes, I know this is minor, but I'm a tad bored too. Psychopath 19:34, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

You would be correct if Ze Goggles were named Goggles, but they're not; Ze Goggles is a proper noun and thus the adjective, Vintage works perfectly fine in front of them. :) -RJ 19:55, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

First described hat

Is it worth mentioning that this hat had a description before the Describing Contest, and was the only hat to have a description up until that point? Onyyx 09:57, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

No, because it's effectively "One of X items" trivia which isn't allowed and I believe this is incorrect. -- Lagg Backpack Stickybomb Launcher.png 10:00, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Ghostbusters

This hat is NOT military goggles. Well, it can be, but it looks EXACTLY like the goggles that Ray wears in the movie. So since they are exact, it doesn't make sense to describe them as something else. Have a look. http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/File:Ectogoggles03.png

So, I'm going to ask before I change anything. Should the article be edited to say they are exactly the same as the Ghostbusters goggles, except they weren't promotional or anything? I hope you can get what I mean. ErnieTheGreatest (talk) 19:11, 21 September 2013 (PDT)

If you want you could contact the creator and ask if it was inspired from the Ghostbusters goggles. But as it is right now we don't have any references to support your claim. If you can get a reference, you can add it to the Trivia to say that they were inspired by the Ghostbuster goggles. --Samuel Enthers 19:14, 21 September 2013 (PDT)
Are you sure we need to talk about inspiration when the hat is obviously copied exactly? :P ErnieTheGreatest (talk) 19:20, 21 September 2013 (PDT)
Well there are a couple of amusing coincidences around the Wiki when it comes to copied hats, although that isn't to say they were inspired directly by the hats. Your evidence is substantial, but not definitive. It's good enough to include it in the article, but it isn't definitive enough for the pickiest of people (E.G. wiki editors). If somebody comes along and gives you a hard time on your trivia, better keep some creator confirmation as ammunition. --Samuel Enthers 19:30, 21 September 2013 (PDT)
The whole Medigun-Looks-Like-A-Proton-Gun-So-They-Added-Goggle-To-Match can't be an amusing coincidence. But whaaaaaaatever. I mean the trivia mentions it, so it could have a place in the actual article. ErnieTheGreatest (talk) 19:44, 21 September 2013 (PDT)
Here's the thing. Many items may have some resemblance to other things in movies/shows/games. However if the creator says it was based off it then we add it. If it wasn't based off it, Don't add it as we don't add anything just by pure coincidence. Ashes (talk) 19:48, 21 September 2013 (PDT)
