Stuff going on with the page that needs attending to[edit]

Characters section full of spoilers, I REALLY think someone should put a spoiler tag. My reason for not bothering: too busy with college things to go out of my way to edit Wikipedia articles.

Also, Characters section has noticeable grammatical errors and the like, I fixed 2 of them, but as I looked around a bit I realized I don't have time to fix them all and play proof-reader. see above for explanation why. anyone who cares enough is free to fix them. --66.189.24.40 (talk) 05:52, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia no longer uses spoiler tags, see Wikipedia:Spoiler. Oxguy3 tc 23:25, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Comment from 64.40.84.98[edit]

Next to Tucker's name where his description should be is apparently some of Church's description instead. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.40.84.98 (talk) 12:19, 4 October 2010 (UTC)

Season 9 trailer view count[edit]

"The trailer entitled Red vs Blue: Season 9 was released on the Rooster Teeth website and received 100,000 views in its first hour."

We don't release our view counts so I'm curious where this number came from, unless it was plucked from the YouTube upload of the trailer. YouTube is our secondary distribution platform, our site (powered by blip.tv) is the primary. This number is probably way off. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.109.186.19 (talk) 00:59, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing attention to this. I've removed the statistic and noted the need for more citations in this article. EWikistTalk 01:11, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

June 13?[edit]

In the article it states that Season 9 will be released June 13, 2011. Is there a source for this? Jacktheinfinite101 (talk) 15:49, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Really[edit]

So Red vs Blue is just a bunch of people who are now famous voice actors, playing Halo on Xbox live, and messing with the camera view of the game? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.44.144.190 (talk) 15:40, 22 June 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, pretty much. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.235.249.139 (talk) 17:34, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Serenity is just a movie about two groups of men fighting of a mentally disturbed scantily clad sixteen-year-old. The Lord of the Rings is about a midget destroying stolen property.

Everything will sound bad if you say it the right/wrong way. 143.92.1.33 (talk) 01:08, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

If you're that stupid, Lord of the Rings is a full length movie with actual actors, costumes, staff etc not just people filming a video game and talking? WTF how can you compare the two? --24.94.249.157 (talk) 19:35, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Article concerns[edit]

This article has a unref tag in the Seasons 9 and 10 section, and the lack citations in the audio and music section. Before a FAR is needed, I will look in the detail for a prose myself. If anybody fixing or watching the article, or the sources are added, I'll check back in the week and so. JJ98 (Talk / Contributions) 07:52, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Renaming the Unnamed Series Section[edit]

In the navigation template at the bottom of the page, Season Nine and Ten are classified under 'Unnamed Series'. However in a recent, official, Rooster Teeth survey, they listed the two seasons under 'Project Freelancer'. So I think we should rename that part as Project Freelancer as well.

Resources to use for rewrite[edit]

I've created a list of sources that could be used for rewriting this article at User:Nomader/RedvsBlue which I'll be adding to over the next couple of days. Nomader (talk) 15:21, 8 August 2012 (UTC)

Seasons/Series box[edit]

Okay, Lar409 and 90.192.57.78, make your cases here regarding the different approaches. I'm personally leaning towards Lar409's version (I think, at least). In any case, let's stop a revert war before it begins. I don't like clutter in edit histories, and endless reverting generates more clutter.--Drat (Talk) 14:11, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

It's dealt with, just trying to find a middle ground of order and accurate info. And yes the split boxes do look better. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.192.57.78 (talk) 21:28, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Holiday Plans[edit]

I wanted to point out that "Holiday Plans" shouldn't be considered a mini-series like Out of Mind, Relocated, and Recovery One. It is a three-part holiday special, similar to the ODST 3-parter and the Reach mini-series 3-parter, and should be considered a special episode of RvB rather than an actual mini-series. It is also non-canon to the series, unlike the 3 stated above, but you could argue that MIA and WTAWTAW may not be canon as well, which I don't really believe they are, but I read from a source (http://rvb.wikia.com/wiki/Talk:Red_vs._Blue:_MIA#Time_Period) that Burnie Burns stated MIA as canon. Personally, those 2 mini-series have a better reason to be considered canon, since technically it takes place inside the Epsilon Unit. To further add that Holiday Plans is not a mini-series like the stated main 3 is this: according to the RT website: http://roosterteeth.com/archive/?sid=rvb&v=more&s=7, Holiday Plans is listed under "Special Videos", unlike "Out of Mind", "Recovery One", and "Relocated" which are posted along with their respective seasons.

I have talked to another user about this, but I wanted to know what you guys think, because I believe that adding Holiday Plans along with the other mini-series would cause confusion. 173.74.249.192 (talk) 23:41, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

You're right this page needs a serious clean-up; Holiday Plans doesn't fit anywhere into the plot line because it is indeed a "special" as the above user has mentioned and for the record I believe MIA and the Wall miniseries are supposed to take place between episodes 7 to 9 of season 9, going by the Burnie Burns quote in the above link. I've blanked the article page for Holiday Plans and I'm also gonna double check that episode count and take the Reconstruction and Recreation trailers out if need be as they don't really count do they? They're not on the Blu-rays in any case and I think Burnie has also stated the Recreation trailer at least to be non-canon. Please correct me if I'm wrong or have misread. Hypered1 (talk) 02:03, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

No you're right. Burnie stated the Recreation trailer as non-canon & the Reconstruction trailer can be considered non-canon too as it is unneeded to follow the story. 173.74.249.192 (talk) 11:06, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

Hey I've managed to find the survey for the best of DVD http://roosterteeth.com/survey/take.php?id=9 and it only lists five mini-series: Out of Mind, Recovery One, Relocated, MIA and Where There's a Will, There's a Wall. This must be solid confirmation if nothing else is. Also with regards to the two trailers, seasons 6 to 10 have a total of 100 episodes when the trailers are discounted and as the first 5 seasons have the same total it makes sense that this would be the correct amount. Hypered1 (talk) 13:58, 27 November 2012 (UTC)

References about release dates[edit]

I know when they where uploaded however there are no reliable sources to back up that the first ever episode was released on April 1, 2003, are their any reliable references that can be added because I've had no luck so far. - SilentDan297 talk 10:18, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi SilentDan, in response to your question the airdate for the first episode and the anniversary of the company as a whole has been mentioned numerous times by various members of the staff; including the core four of Burnie Burns, Gus Sorola, Geoff Ramsey and Matt Hullum with Burnie sometimes going so far as to express regret as some people have thought he was joking when he said the anniversary date is 1st April. Cryomantic (talk) 10:16, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Chorus Civil War[edit]

Although I have no issue with naming the latest seasons as 'Chrous Civil War', I would like to know where this name came from as I've never heard or seen any of the Roosterteeth make any mention of it. Thanks. Cryomantic (talk) 09:38, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Mini-series page[edit]

I have noticed that the individual pages for each of the miniseries have been deleted and replaced with a single page set up as an over view of the series as whole; however it has little detail regarding the miniseries - despite their canonicity - and the page itself, beyond some of my own tweaks, has not been updated properly in over a year. At any rate listing the episodes of the main seasons seems redundant as they each have their own pages.

So my proposal is that a page be set up in the style of the individual season pages but with descriptions of the episodes for each of the five mini-series (a total of 22 episodes); I would attempt it myself however I am not confident that I wouldn't make a complete mess of it, also I had considered editing/ adapting the aforementioned existing 'List of RvB media' page for the same purpose; however again I felt that an edit of that scale would be looked down upon without prior approval.
