Chrome Drillbot

Arguably, both the nicknames "CDDB" and "Chillbot" are widely used, but with each party trying to convince others to adopt their own nickname; as such, would it be better to remove both nicknames completely or temporarily blank it until a common consensus is reached? -- Denunciator 13:43, 27 December 2009 (UTC)

I find it thoroughly amusing that people are fighting over which nickname is correct, when in fact, every nickname given is valid as long as there's a reasonable amount of people using it. Moreover, most players know what the names rightly refer to, even if they don't agree over it. As such, both names are in fact proper nicknames as both have been adopted for use by some players. -- Grexx 13:46, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
So then we should include both nicknames? Also, I found some of the nicknames included quite fascinating - Combs for Catacombs and Bush for Ambush, for example - almost no people use these nicknames, so should they be pruned as cleanup or remain as they are? -- Denunciator 13:50, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
Not really worth the trouble to go through the names here. But if it's bugging you, go ahead and work on the ones you think are no longer in use. This article has lower standards for notability though, precisely to save the effort of having to justify which nicknames/jargon are proper and common, and having to check through the data supporting it. This is mostly because the only source for these terms are from the forums, and thus extremely subjective to justify either ways (removal or addition), and the Chrome DrillBot serves as an excellent example why. -- Grexx 14:04, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
