Talk:Babylon 5

From IBWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

I just wanted to offer a word of praise here. Being a huge fan of Babylon 5 the differences and similarities between *here* and *there* kinda scream out at me. Frankly, I suspect this is a program I would not enjoy watching--but it also strikes me as pretty much exactly the kind of show this particular country in IB would indeed produce. Rather than simply being a variation of a theme, this is an actual re-working of an idea according to a totally different cultural perspective! Well done! Zahir 08:08, 18 June 2006 (PDT)

In my opinion we shouldn’t destroy the legend of “Babilon 5”. I see your point in need of redone the idea but think that “Babilon 5” is (or should be) a kind of international trade mark of Venedic TV (see TWW Productions) and was mention in many articles because of it’s international popularity. The image of your “Babilon 5” is rather gloomy and couldn’t be understand somewhere else than in this particular country in IB. More over I’d like to add that *here* Babilon plot also fits to the relity of modern Lithuanian or even whole RTC. As far as I know RTC (especially Lithuanian capitol city) became a neutral place of international conferences, in the past was straggled by many wars and was place of mixing many cultures. Could you conceder retiled your work as a different series by Jóżef Michał Straczynik? Follow by white rabbit 00:37, 19 June 2006 (PDT)
I support Follow By White Rabbit... this is a good idea, but i don't think it should be the analog of Babylon 5. Steg, a.k.a. Boroparkpyro 12:02, 20 June 2006 (PDT)
Fair enough, I bow to the majority and rescind my proposal. To whoever come up with another though, I do wish it wasn't a one-on-one copy of *our* babylon 5. --Marc Pasquin 16:48, 20 June 2006 (PDT)
Darn it. You see, the fact it wasn't a copy of Babylon 5 but something else, echoing some details but very different, was exactly what intrigued me. Darn. Zahir 17:08, 20 June 2006 (PDT)
Hey, there're like what now, 5 Bill Clintons? There can be multiple B5-equivalents too; i just think that when the name was originally ported over, it was intended to be fairly similar. Steg, a.k.a. 08:41, 22 June 2006 (PDT)
Marc, could you please re-propose 'Babylon's Fight and I'll do a IB proposal for Babylon 5? Be warned, though, it will bear very little resemblence to the t.v. show here. Hee hee hee hee... Zahir 15:41, 22 June 2006 (PDT)
Guys, this is *exactly* the kind of things we need to stop doing. Instead of accepting every single proposal made, its okay to discard one and keep another. The reason I made the proposal was not to include another fictional universe but simply to play with the name "Babylon 5". Including it within IB if there is another one doesn't in any way flesh out the IBverse.
One thing I'm afraid is for the IB wiki to become a reposit for projects that are tenuously related to IB that would be added under the guise of describing its "entertainement". And this is not an attack on past entries, just something to consider for the future. --Marc Pasquin 09:10, 23 June 2006 (PDT)
In my opinion 'B5' is really worth mention in IB, that’s way I was (and still am) very in favor of slightly redone of *here* 'B5' to IB reality. But I very mixed filings of presenting in IB whole plots, scripts and etc. of alternate books, movies etc. even if it strong part of conculture. In contrast to 'B5' witch is conceder to be the only in its kind, plays significant role in many sociological aspects and became internationally famous *here* and *there*, most of presented in IB literature, comic books and etc. do not have any influence in IB reality. I haven't any objections to them but it is our choice as community how we want to IB looks and witch rules we should follow. For me, the present situation is OK, otherwise I wouldn't have singed in IBWiki, but I'm still open for discussion. I also see how much work has been done by such people like Jan van... and others and of course IB inventor Andrew, their opinion should be significant in public discourse. And one more thing Ad Fontes! Follow by white rabbit 10:26, 23 June 2006 (PDT)

New Version

Here is my attempt at coming up with something a little more akin to what was being discussed three years ago. Zahir 19:56, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Redirect Please

Here is a réally good reason why, if we are going to use diacritics in article names, to also create a redirect using only plain Latin letters. Much easier to search for -- and fínd! -- articles for anyone without easy access to such letters. Elemtilas 01:26, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
