Talk:Doom community jargon

From DoomWiki.org

Title suggestion[edit]

Suggest "Doom community jargon" as a much simpler, more searchable title. --Quasar (talk) 14:50, 18 June 2015 (CDT)

That works for me. ConSiGno (talk) 15:11, 18 June 2015 (CDT)
We can just move it to that title then when you're done with sandbox work ;) --Quasar (talk) 15:14, 18 June 2015 (CDT)

"Waggle"[edit]

Is this right? What about http://doomwiki.org/wiki/Wall_wiggle_bug ? --Linguica (talk) 16:38, 22 June 2015 (CDT)

I've heard all of those before, as well as "waggle". Looks like I need to add that to both articles. ConSiGno (talk) 17:48, 22 June 2015 (CDT)
Oh derp, Waggle is floors, Wiggle is walls. Will fix. ConSiGno (talk) 17:49, 22 June 2015 (CDT)

Pain elemental common nickname "meatball"[edit]

This has been considered contentious a couple of times now, so here are a few good sources just to start:

  • Usenet post from 1996
  • Doomworld search
  • Blog post - "I guess you also see the first pain elemental, but the meatball is a joke when the marine's arsenal has been so upgraded."
  • Someone on Facebook's idea for a food: "My favorite idea so far is basically a spicy meatball filled w/ a Carolina Reaper based sauce/chutney. I've dubbed it the pain elemental."
  • Blog post - "Pain Elemental: Affectionately referred to as "meatballs" in our little circle, the Pain Elemental is a great monster in that it's extremely annoying but admittedly effective."
  • YouTube video entitled "Useless meatball" showing PEs that cannot spawn any souls.
