Official name[edit]

The official name for this enemy is Klamber. My guidebook says so. --Taj The Genie 17:48, 17 February 2007 (EST)

Is it the Prima Strategy Guide? If I remember correctly, the guide itself is considered unofficial. Cobold 17:52, 17 February 2007 (EST)

Does anyone think that they are a sub-species of Scuttle Bugs?--Holyromanemperortatan 03:43, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

The guide I have(Which specifically states that it is the official Nintendo guide on the front cover) refers to these exclusively as Scuttle Bugs. The name Klamber is not even mentioned.--Vommack 20:34, 4 June 2012 (EDT)

Supposedly, Taj the Genie's "official" guide states that the name of this enemy is Klamber. The problem with the term official is that eery company around stamps the word official on their guides just to sound good. My guide, which specifically states "The Official Nintendo Player's Guide" on the front cover, refers to these enemies specifically as Scuttle Bugs. The word Klamber is not mentioned. As such, it should be merged into said article.

I'm questioning the need for a vote on this matter. MarioWiki:Naming states that Nintendo Power guides are of an higher priority than Prima (or any other third party guides) and while in some cases, vastly different creatures are given a separate article despite being given the same name in one source, there's a difference between two different creatures being different in the "first" language and one creature being given a different name in a third party guide from a publisher of questionable quality. As such, I'm fairly sure you could just merge it with the Scuttle Bug page uncontroversialy.

(good god I am such a neeerrrrrrrd) --Glowsquid 22:44, 5 June 2012 (EDT)

It is from the Nintendo Power guide, but me putting the delete template on the Lava Bubba page without making a TPP seemed to stir up some...err...controversy. I figured "Eh, may as well put this up first, just to be safe".

That was my fault and I apologize but I was having a hard time understanding what you were saying. Raven Effect (talk)
No problem. Vommack (talk)


So, why is this at "Klamber" when the more official name is apparently "Scuttle Bug"? Niiue (talk) 08:05, 14 September 2015 (EDT)

Probably because there was that proposal to merge Klamber with Scuttlebug and then everyone kinda forgot about it. Hello, I'm Time Turner.
Four months since Niiue (talk) brought this naming issue up, which was first brought up in 2012? I shall tag with {{talk}} just to kind of bring attention to the issue again. By the way, I agree Klamber should be merged with Scuttlebug. --Wildgoosespeeder (talk) (Stats - Contribs) 00:59, 2 February 2016 (EST)

An appropriate course of action is to create a proposal for this; I'm removing the "talk" template. --Andymii (talk) 00:22, 8 June 2016 (EDT)
