Is it really a gang of four? you left out Webmassterbate,Gao.prd, Conservafreak Dagomar 19:49, 12 July 2007 (CDT)

Awwww, and here was me thinking someone had written an article about the 1970s band from Leeds. Next I'll be seeing "The Sisters of Mercy" written about nuns and "The Mission" about Christian missionaries. Ten points if you get the joke... liessmokemirrors 19:52, 12 July 2007 (CDT)

The picture[edit]

You don't suppose anyone could get a group portrait of Andy, TK, RobS, and Ed? SJIHAS 15:25, 31 July 2007 (CDT)

ROTFL! Too bad the band aren't named Andy, Terry, Bob and Ed. I think one of them is an Andy though... humanbe in 15:33, 31 July 2007 (CDT)
We've got Andy, and there was a (now deleted) picture of Ed on both CP and WP. I'll dig about. --מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!
Pity we can't get them to pose nicely on the Parkinson Steps like the infinitely cooler Gang of Four photograph. HexspecimenIt's an X 15:53, 31 July 2007 (CDT)

Mongo and Ed Poor[edit]

Are you sure Mongo is Ed Poor? There are two separate established users on wikipedia, one of them is Mongo and another one is Ed Poor. Seems that both of them have been disgraced though

I know MONGO. MONGO is a friend of mine. Ed Poor is not MONGO. RobS (talk) 02:13, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
The word "Mongo" was added by someone else after I made the original page. (He was called "Ed 'lap dog' Poor" at the time—I was using canine nicknames.) I did not know, and still don't know, what that was about. A different CP user? Unsubstantiated alias? It's outta here. SJIHAS 09:21, 9 August 2007 (CDT)

Rearrangement[edit]

The illustrious "Gang of Four" is currently a gang of four no more; TK's departure has left a notable vacumn of power, one which many other editors are struggling to fill. Should this page receive any updating or additions to reflects such events? UchihaKATON! 15:40, 1 January 2008 (EST)

Perhaps there is some stuff that needs to be made past tense, at least? humanUser talk:Human 16:59, 1 January 2008 (EST)

Proposed new Gang of Four[edit]

I suggest the we start a new, updated Gang of Four list to lead the article, and move the now outdated, older Gang of Four into a section called, say, "Past members of the Gang of Four" directly below the new list. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 22:27, 23 February 2008 (EST)

Proposed updated membership
  • ASchlafly—Obviously
  • Fox—Why? Because unlike many of the others, Fox personally knows Andy, even claiming that Andy can just "call him up" on the phone if he ever finds anything questionable. This suggests a degree of pull with Andy that none of the other sysops can claim. He is skilled at suppressing opposing opinions before Andy gets around to personally handling it, and smart enough to not involve himself in most of the arguments Andy gets into, thus avoiding having to contradict any of Schlafly's loonier positions. Clearly more than just another yes-man, of the type that Andy typically promotes.

  • Karajou - old guard. --מְתֻרְגְּמָן שְׁלֹום
  • Conservative: Google Master--66.212.24.96 22:51, 23 February 2008 (EST)
  • Iduan: slave--66.212.24.96 22:51, 23 February 2008 (EST)

Good idea, but who, and how? Assfly, Crock'o'shite, Karakahoub, Joquin Pheonix, who? humanUser talk:Human 23:03, 23 February 2008 (EST)

Ed Poor and Crocite. PFoster 23:11, 23 February 2008 (EST)
OK, teh Assfly (obviously), crock'o'shite, Kangaroo, and Poor Ed. humanUser talk:Human 23:42, 23 February 2008 (EST)
I still think Fox should be included, for the reasons I stated above. I'm not so sure about Ed Poor, he's strikes me as too much of a passive ass-kisser to really rate being in the top four. Is he really among the inner circle that control things, still? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 01:05, 24 February 2008 (EST)

Now, with the benefit of some time passing, I think it is clear that TK should be "retired" to his own special section, and replaced with Kookookoojoob. Thoughts? ħumanUser talk:Human 20:23, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

Karajou's more of a hired goon, but I see your point. My four would be Andy, Conservative, Ed and the Koward. Let's pointlessly compare our irrational preferences without any effort towards compromise!! Jellyfish!Fish can wish 20:28, 4 June 2008 (EDT)
I forgot that RobS, fun as he was, needs a replacement, too. Trouble with Kendoll is that he just plays his little egoogle games, doesn't really run around messing with mere editors (hell, they can't edit any of his pets anyway). It's definitely Andy/Ed/Ksailor, but who would be #4, defined as a powerful figure who will try to fuck you up if you cross any of their secret boundaries? There might be a vacuum for that title right now? Koukou has moved, a little bit, into the quintessential Gang mode of being willing to make up rules on the spur of the moment to abuse editors with, right? have any of the homskollars turned into 'little hitlers' yet? ħumanUser talk:Human 20:46, 4 June 2008 (EDT)
Nope. To my relief, most of them are quite friendly and nice, on the whole, even if some of them seem to think in a series of concentric circles. Jellyfish!Fish can wish 20:50, 4 June 2008 (EDT)
Well, that's a "sort of" relief. Ooh, ooh, perhaps Learn Together could be considered Gang material? ħumanUser talk:Human 21:03, 4 June 2008 (EDT)
That's scraping the barrel a bit. I would suggest Crocoite, but since he's recently made it clear he doesn't feel like one of the gang, he doesn't seem quite suitable. I would still go with Conservative, actually. Or, in a pinch, TerryH. He makes up for his marginal status with an extra large dose of vitriol. Jellyfish!Fish can wish 21:05, 4 June 2008 (EDT)
Learn Together rounds out the Quartet, for me...PFoster 21:12, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

(UNDENT)....where did Crocoite make it clear that he didn't feel like part of the club?PFoster 21:14, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

PFoster, you're clueless He wrote a thing in his userspace about how he felt that Mormonism (his religion) was getting short shrift at CP, but it wasn't really his place to kick up a fuss about it. Jellyfish!Fish can wish 21:17, 4 June 2008 (EDT)

Haha, am I allowed to object to being the "slave"?--Iduan 00:10, 4 July 2008 (EDT)

The "Lesser Figures" section is now in conflict with the new Gang of Four. Karajou and Conservative have been kicked upstairs promoted, so we need two new Lesser Figures.. any ideas? --RuffNekk Arrr! 04:50, 4 July 2008 (EDT)
Ah, oops. I forgot about them entirely in my update. Hmm... LearnTogether comes to mind first. There's also Deborah, TerryH, HenryS (though to be fair, I don't hear that much about him, so he may not be bad enough to merit inclusion on this list), Yerranos... I don't know anymore.

Conservative or Bugler?[edit]

Can Conservative really be considered part of a Gang of Four? He mostly does his own thing, oblivious to whatever else is going on (until recently when he stepped into the Obama-Muslim debates, where he's siding against Aschlafly, etc.) I would suggest Bugler is a much more obvious candidate to complete the quartet. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 17:48, 18 November 2008 (EST)

Isn't TK stands for Teamkill more than Teacake?[edit]

Maybe it's just me playing too much games? Thieh 18:44, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

It can also mean typekill. To kill someone while they are standing still and typing (as indicated by an icon over their head when they open their chat box or console). Nerd etiquette suggests you leave them alone or wait till they start moving. I shouldn't know that. :-( CarwreCk 09:10, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Images[edit]

Both "GangOfFour" images on this page are highly, highly dubious. They also don't seem to add much IMHO. Scarlet A.pngpathetic 14:54, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Agree; Not even particularly amusing: delete 'em? 15:16, 30 May 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast
I'd say so. They're only used on this article. I'll wait and see if anyone else chimes in. Scarlet A.pngpathetic 15:25, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
Dubious, but more pressing is how horribly outdated this article is. It still has references to dear PJR, and he hasn't been on CP for well over a year. SJ Debaser 15:29, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Updating[edit]

I've updated this article a bit, as it was incredibly out of date. I put Conservative in place of Ed Poor in the new Gang, as Ed hasn't been doing much lately apart from the occasional stub about movies concerning rape. Having said that, Karajou's been quiet lately too, but there's not really anyone to replace him. SJ Debaser 16:28, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Conservative is hardly much of a gang-member. He doesn't really cooperate with other sysops & vice-versa, & doesn't exert any influence beyond spamming talk pages & news threads with his ramblings. ωεαşεζøίɗWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 16:47, 30 May 2010 (UTC)
While this is true, he's far more active than Ed Poor or Karajou, or Andy, or anyone else for that matter. Even if it is concerning the same old rehashed subjects. SJ Debaser 17:08, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

In light of TK's passing....[edit]

I nominate JPatt for membership in the Gang. P-Foster (talk) 01:08, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Seconded. Ace McAwesome 01:14, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Threaded. Aboriginal Noise Theist, barely hanging by a nail 01:15, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Awrite. Someone more familiar than I with his work should write it up. P-Foster (talk) 01:16, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Wait - Jpatt replaces Ed in the Go4? Has he really done enough to warrant that? --Ψ GremlinSnakk! 12:29, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
I think we are overlooking general bullyboy TerryH. Does he do anything but pimp his blog and block people? Don't forget the time he was caught out lying and threatened to block three third parties if they did not apologise. - π 12:43, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
I nominate JPatt because when I wrote Schlafly Doo he was included, whereas TerryH and RobS weren't, and my opinion counts for a lot. SJ Debaser 12:52, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

so how bout the datedness?[edit]

Is there really four people anymore? its more 2 people (Ken and Andy) with a parasite (Terry) and some thugs (jpatt and Kara)--il'Dictator Mikal 03:04, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

I say fishbowl it. Historical, not worth "updating". ħumanUser talk:Human 03:48, 10 May 2012 (UTC)
