Re: Tripping the Rift's "Six" - her character was in the original internet short, which predated the original BSG by many years. She was actually a riff on Star Trek Voyager's Seven of Nine. --April Arcus 01:18, 13 November 2005 (EST)

FMJ Reference

While the "sock-beating" does occur in Full Metal Jacket, I don't think Kubrick invented the idea of the "blanket party", which has probably been a military tradition since the inception of militaries (being something of an informal mechanism of internal discipline). --Steelviper 14:32, 20 January 2006 (EST)

My bad. Apparently this is mentioned in the podcast. --Steelviper 09:28, 9 February 2006 (EST)

Article Visibility

As mentioned elsewhere, this article can be difficult to find. Perhaps we should consider moving it/creating some redirects as well as maybe brainstorm some more places to link to this article so that people can find it (both to read it as well as contribute to it). --Steelviper 12:10, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

Rename. As shown from Viper's link, I think this page would have much greater visibility with a simpler name, such as "Easter Eggs (RDM)." True, we would be stretching the definition of Easter Egg to do this, but this is a functional site, and works much better when people can find what they're looking for. If not renamed, at least get some redirects going, please! - Keithustus 23:33, 23 October 2006 (CDT)
I think that the current name is much better as a definition of the article content. I am happy with having Easter Eggs redirect here and possible a few other terms but certainly not having that as the official name. You'd be really stretching the definition of the word really as easter eggs are meant to be hidden features rather than homages and subtle pop culture references --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 03:21, 24 October 2006 (CDT)
Not all references are serious, so maybe a subarticle of the humorous content (which is really what easter eggs tend to be) would be useful to have? Saves the effort of reading the entire lengthy article? --Spencerian 08:22, 24 October 2006 (CDT)
