Facepunch threads

I'd rate the FP threads as reliable. They paint a very detailed picture of FP activity on 2b. The entry should note that they should not be used as a source for the activity of people on the entire server, as a bunch of people at the time (like Judge) had no idea what the deal was with FP.

Note: is this list only for individuals or for all kinds of sources? -ElliotRodger523 (talk) 04:47, 3 December 2021 (UTC)

Support They serve well as a primary source, similar to a chat log. —  Melofors  TC  05:08, 19 December 2021 (UTC)
@ElliotRodger523: This page is for identifying the truthfulness of information reported by a source, which could range from individual players (if someone is found to be untruthful in general) to YouTube channels, which I imagine would be the majority of sources listed being the bulk of sources used on the wiki. News articles would also count but aren't used because they usually have no substance. —  Melofors  TC  05:08, 19 December 2021 (UTC)

Speed round

fastvincent1: Interviews people. 2nd hand source. Has used the wiki as a source on occasion. Generally reliable.

Republic Radio News: Wide range of sources and volunteers. 2nd hand source. News-style reporting (reports early on situations before the full thing may be realized). Early episodes should be avoided. Generally reliable.

2b2t comics: Made by TheJudgeHolden. Events might be distorted or simplified for entertainment. Characters have vague identities. Should only be used for stuff relating to the author and combined with other sources if possible. Generally unreliable. -ElliotRodger523 (talk) 00:27, 24 December 2021 (UTC)
