Delete or combine?

  • Ok, what do we do with this page now? I figure we'll never know for sure who made that particular phone call, so I would just redirect this page to Thompson. --Fcphantom 23:10, 26 February 2007 (EST)
    • It's not confirmed that Thompson is the boss though, even if he IS superior to Bennet. There could be a higher.--Riddler 23:22, 26 February 2007 (EST)
      • Yeah, he very well could have been speaking to Kaito who appears to be pretty high, if not the one in charge. (Admin 23:26, 26 February 2007 (EST))
        • True on both accounts. I guess it just bugs me that this page is still around. --Fcphantom 23:27, 26 February 2007 (EST)
          • We still shouldn't combine, but I find it interesting that Heroes Interactive:Parasite calls Thompson "H.R.G.'s boss". — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:28, 5 March 2007 (EST)
            • This page should absolutely be deleted as its existence would only serve to confuse anyone trying to get access to information about this. Bennet was talking to his superior and Thompson was later identified as his superior. Since then, we haven't seen Bennet talk to any superior other than Thompson. Thompson and Mr. Bennet's boss are one in the same. If there's not quite a bit of strong disagreement about this, I'm going to combine or delete in a day or too. --Harlequin 15:02, 3 May 2007 (EDT)
            • I am in favor of combining this page with Thompson and I would also throw in Company field leader as well, as long as there were notes on the page that say it isn't absolutely certain that these were him. I'm convinced just by looking at it that the image on that second page is Thompson. Also, we've seen no evidence that Kaito speaks English, and we know Bennet tends to speak Japanese when they are together, which is evidence but not proof that he was not the one on the phone.

              • Personally, I'd rather see the page deleted if anything. It's simply not confirmed that Bennet was talking to Thompson (yes, it almost has to be him, but near certainty or obviousness is not confirmation), and this article, as it stands, is about the man he spoke to on the phone. I suppose we can redirect this to Thompson and note (as in the Notes section, not the Character History section) that it's likely that he's the one Bennet spoke to, but we should not simply merge the pages. That's speculation--well-founded speculation, but speculation nonetheless.--Hardvice (talk) 15:18, 3 May 2007 (EDT)
                • Agree. It pains me to say so because it is quite obvious, but I'm in one of those we-have-to-be-really-tight-with-our-speculation-now-or-else-it-will-get-out-of-control-very-quickly moods. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:38, 3 May 2007 (EDT)
                  • I'm with Hardvice. We ereally know next to nothing about this guy. Heroe!(talk) (contribs) Random Page! 15:49, 3 May 2007 (EDT)
                    • Okay, can we all agree then that this page should be deleted and a note added to the Thompson section?--Harlequin 16:39, 4 May 2007 (EDT)
                      • I think a redirect would be best. Heroe!(talk) (contribs) 21:28, 17 May 2007 (EDT)
                        • A redirect would lose the history (albeit minimal) that we have for "Mr. Bennet's boss". I'm not really in favor of deleting the page just because we know very little about the guy. But certainly, linking "Mr. Bennet's boss" and Thompson in any way (other than noting it in Notes) is taking a leap that may be well-founded, but is still speculation. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:56, 18 May 2007 (EDT)

Lead pic

The picture of Mr. Bennet is not a picture of his boss. It can be very confusing to have a picture of Mr. Bennet in that space. In the meantime, we simply don't have a picture of him, so none should go in that space. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:16, 2 May 2007 (EDT)

Delete/Combine ... again!

I propose we get rid of this article. We all think its Thompson. I say we ask someone in an interview if it is Thompson or not. -- Ohmyn0.jpgOhmyn0talk.jpg 01:14, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

  • Who would you like to ask? (I'm not doing any more interviews anytime soon.) I know it's a frustrating article, but just because some people think it's Thompson does not mean it is. In reality, barring a line from Noah like "Hey, remember when we first captured Sylar and I was talking on the phone to <insert name here> and he told me to keep Sylar alive?", we're not going to learn the identity of this character. Ever. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:41, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

Bob?

Should this be changed to Bob becuase Sandra says in Cautionary Tales that Bob was his old boss at Primatech?

  • I vote for delete. While it's unclear whether or not his boss refers to Bob or Thompson, it's obviously one of them. This article isn't necessary, or particularly important. -- LightSpectra 15:49, 12 December 2007 (EST)
    • I agree completely. There's very little useful information in this article which requires a dedicated article. The article was originally created anticipating that it could eventually be renamed once the true person was revealed, but we never found out for certain who this was. Anything on this article is most likely already part of the character histories, so we shouldn't lose any information deleting this article. (Admin 16:25, 12 December 2007 (EST))
      • Same here. I think this would fit in our slowly-taking-shape cruft policy. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 22:23, 17 December 2007 (EST)
