:::But folks, that's the whole point - this guy is a one-note minor character, who nobody really cares about, but frankly he's just the kind of jerk who would be ranting and complaining about everything, as well as vandalizing stuff.

:::And Dys, I'm not trying to insult G1. I *like* G1. It's my favorite continuity, and I still watch the cartoon.This article as it stood was an attempt to be both 1. true to the character and 2. a commentary on certain fans, because really, practically every bit of this encyclopedia is both an information source and a mirror of some fan-thing. Taking that away leaves it pretty plain with just a little ha-ha at the beginning.

Just keep it like it is. This page seems to have worked great for the last three or four years so can we finally take the "too much sarcasm thing down?--[[User:Black kille|Black kille]] 03:17, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Note that I did leave in the added info, just reworded it to fit Crankcase's unique outlook. --Autobus Prime 15:17, 16 February 2007 (UTC)


Wow, a Phantom reference. You have made my day. EricMarrs 19:11, 16 February 2007 (UTC)


No offense intended, but in my opinion the tone of the article makes it hard to read as it sounds like anti g1 ranting and as a result makes the page useless as a source of information. It bothered me so much I registered just to change it. I can understand the desire for humour, but it reads too much like vandalism, even if that's not what's intended. People wouldn't do this to a page on a major character. --Dystemper

I would tend to agree with that general sentiment. It's a bit too much, and too easily mistaken for actual vandalism. --KilMichaelMcC 19:43, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
I agree - sometimes less is more, and this is bang-over-your head too much. I generally think humour (for the most part) should be restricted to the main biography and captions, though small snippets of humour in the main body of the article is great, just so long as it doesn't get in the way of providing information. --FFN 20:02, 16 February 2007 (UTC)
