Chickens (history - links - logs) Edit

Is this article even necessary? Chickens have had NO role in COD, they're just there in the background for humor purposes. Also just because they have an emblem in multiplayer and you can earn an achievement for killing many of them doesn't mean they are notable. That's like saying we should have an article about weed all because it appears as an emblem in MW3 and as camo in Ghosts. Chickens are just recurring background props, they are not something that has a certain role in the series. This is also applies for watermelons, which was deleted from this wiki for the same reason.

Keep Edit

Pictogram voting keep Keep — well, we have teddy bears and monkeys in pages. plus chickens are included in some achievements/trophies. RisingSun2013 04:47, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Teddy bears are actually notable because they have a ROLE. In zombies they can appear in the Mystery Box, and when they do they cause it to disappear and spawn somewhere else. This can be a disadvantage to the player and make the game harder. Chickens don't have this, and therefore aren't notable enough. Oh and thanks for mentioning the monkey article(not the Space Monkey or Zombie Monkey), so now I know to nominate that article for deletion because of its lack of notability! --User:Captainmad (talk)
the chicken is notable though, because its used in trophies, as easter eggs, etc. the monkeys arent as notable but they still are in a trophy so i guess they deserve a page too. RisingSun2013 16:56, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting keep Keep — Chickens are notable. They are an easter egg, background object, achievement and many other things. Capt. Miller 04:52, September 7, 2014 (UTC).

Oh, so chickens should have an article because they are in an achievement and background prop? So by your logic we should have TVs as an article all because you get an achievement for destroying them in Charlie Don't Surf, and they are a background prop in COD4. Chickens should have an article because they are an easter egg? So you're saying trophies should have an article all because they are an easter egg in Struck Down and make references to Doctor Who and Legend of Zelda. Chickens have no role in any of their games, and I don't recall any easter egg containing them. Instead, how about keep the article about the Chicken power-up in zombies, and remove the page about the background prop chicken instead? Because the chicken power-up has a role in the game, while these chickens don't. --User:Captainmad (talk)
First I'm going to give you this question. If chickens aren't notable, then why has this article not been brought up in a AfD before? Because it is notable. They have been featured in almost every game since WaW, and serve a multitude of purposes for it to wager an article. Capt. Miller 05:33, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
That's because none of you noticed that they had no role in the series, and I just wanted to point that out. In fact, the only time they have anything close to a role is in Dead Ops Arcade, where they are within the chicken power-up including them. So that brings my idea that we should delete the chickens article, and keep the article of the power-up including them instead. Because that is only time in the series where they actually have a ROLE, and there will be no need to have a separate article of them from the power-up. All of the info about easter eggs, achievements, background props, etc. can all go in the trivia section. That is my idea, and I think it would make more sense. --User:Captainmad (talk)

Pictogram voting keep Keep — Per Miller and Risingsun. We also have articles on cows, which have served a very similar purpose to chickens throughout the series. Hasn't this article already been up for AFD before? Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 05:40, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Cows have actually had a role in the series, while chickens have not. Cows are hazards in Dead Ops Arcade, and you can get trampled if it touches you. Chickens are just humorous props in the game and don't really affect the player physically. --User:Captainmad (talk)
Except we've had the article on cows long before they had any role in Dead Ops Arcade. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 05:59, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
And? That just means this wiki's guidelines weren't the same as they are today, and notability wasn't considered as much as now. --User:Captainmad (talk)
If I remember correctly, the granularity policy was retired and the notability policy today isn't too far off of what we were doing around the time of Black Ops. I can't really say much else without repeating Miller and Risingsun. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 06:07, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting keep Keep — They do have a role outside being involved in achievements and such, and that is being a power up on Dead Ops Arcade. 08:18, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting keep Keep — As already said multiple times, they're notable. You're rebuttle to risingsun's point on teddy bears is poor, as they've been a long standing easter egg in the series for much longer than just the games with zombies in them (having been around since Call of Duty: Finest Hour). Yes, they play a much larger role in zombies but outside of that they're still a popular easter egg. Zombie Rank 8 Icon BOII Kylet357 · talk  11:43, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting keep Keep — Per Miller, Because they are easter egg so keep it. Iw5 cardicon grinchSoap eksiri · talk 15:18, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting keep Keep — Major recurring Easter egg. bionicle__unity_duty_destiny_by_cyberpictures-d6p3li2.pngLegos-Rule-15 Talk 19:25, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Split/Merge Edit

Pictogram voting merge Merge — actually now i think it should be merged with Chicken (Power-Up) to make it more notable. RisingSun2013 16:57, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Cows and their Dead Ops version have two seperate pages. Conqueror of all Zombies (talk) 18:04, September 7, 2014 (UTC)

Comments/Questions Edit

Know what? Do whatever y'all want. I don't really care anymore about this page, and I'm just not fitted for this wiki sometimes. --~User:Captainmad (User talk:Captainmad)

You're getting angry because we disagreed with your reasoning (which is wrong anyway, as we have already proved it so). If you can't handle someone disagreeing with you, then you probably shouldn't be on this wiki. Zombie Rank 8 Icon BOII Kylet357 · talk  16:09, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
No! You can keep this page. I'm fine with it and now I don't feel any more need to not like it. I'm not angry.--~User:Captainmad (User talk:Captainmad)
Okay, I see. Zombie Rank 8 Icon BOII Kylet357 · talk  17:02, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
if youve changed your mind you should cross out your vote and get an admin to close the afd. RisingSun2013 17:02, September 7, 2014 (UTC)
