Team Mousetrap Edit

I reckon we could have a Team Mousetrap article again. The team has made or been involved in the production of a variety of machines, including Triterobot, Mousetrap, Mutant Mousetrap, Black & Blue, and Oblark. Not only that, but the team wore a recognisable outfit during the time of Mousetrap, being based on Vermin Killers, making them fairly notable as people. When this article was deleted, the only reason given by Toon Ganondorf was "Just Unneeded", which I disagree with. ToastUltimatum 15:38, December 1, 2012 (UTC)

I think TG deleted it because there wasn't really any notable additional information, other than listing the robots and team members. If you think there is enough notable information to add to that, then I see no reason why it can't have an article. Christophee (talk) 15:45, December 1, 2012 (UTC)
That's the thing, I created the page a while ago, and because TG wasn't sure, I was nearly banned. Go ahead and make the article, you'd probably do a better job than me, and if TG returns and has a rant, I'm sure we'll all back you up. Datovidny (talk) 15:49, December 1, 2012 (UTC)
OK, I've made the article. It's largely structured upon Datovidny's original article, but there's a lot of wording changes and paraphrasing, and I've added paragraphs on Oblark and the team's outfit, as well as a gallery. It can be found here. ToastUltimatum 16:36, December 1, 2012 (UTC)
I've cleaned it up a little bit, but it looks good to me. Christophee (talk) 16:55, December 1, 2012 (UTC)

Renaming Edit

Carrying this discussion over from Ragnabot 3, I noticed a long time ago that our article names relating to Mousetrap have been inaccurate, but I never wanted to bring it up as I don't personally agree with the team's choice of naming convention. However, I can't ignore it any more. On the team's official website, and even on the side of the robot, Mousetrap's official name is actually MouseTrap, and the team name (even worse) is TeamMouseTrap (source: [1]). Unfortunately we can't go against the team's wishes. This renaming will involve:

Work will probably begin in a few days, unless there's a genuine reason not to. Also, any instances of the unofficial name "Mousetrap 2" will need to be removed in the process. TOAST 16:47, July 10, 2019 (UTC)

I like how you hate "MouseTrap" but had no problem with robot awkwardly called "Storm2" or "Ironside3" I argue the logic of those names are more frustrating. Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 18:10, July 10, 2019 (UTC)

and that...And I thought M.R. Speed Squared is worst name to type in full.Diotoir the son of nemesis (talk) 18:36, July 10, 2019 (UTC)
Numbers are always a bit frustrating in a name no matter whether they have spaces or not, but Mousetrap was already a word in the English language man. If anything though, I do like how the Ragnabot discussion raised how some users have unique semi-official spellings that they use only in their personal content, like with me and RAPID.
