Old Geezer Draft beer

Did anyone notice when in Meet the Sniper when he flicks the bobblehead that the one next to it is Old geezer. Here's an image to prove it. Bobbleheads.jpg


I want you to go back to that video, and tell me exactly where you see Old Geezer. --User Firestorm Flame.png Firestorm 02:10, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

right when he flicks the civilian bobblehead.the Old geezer bobblehead is right next to it in the picture. THE3STOOGES/HAMMERHEAD 02:13, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
Go to the VIDEO, seriously, right now, watch it --User Firestorm Flame.png Firestorm 02:13, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

It was never there, that image is just concept art --User Firestorm Flame.png Firestorm 02:19, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
oh it was replaced because they were afraid people wouldn;t get it. THE3STOOGES/HAMMERHEAD 02:19, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes, and it blows my mind that you still don't know how to tab over your comments properly --User Firestorm Flame.png Firestorm 02:20, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

Sarif Industries?

Should Sarif Industries be included in this list? You can find their logo in game, it's visible on the Heavy's Purity Fist, but I thought I should ask here before adding them to the list of companies, as they don't seem to have quite the same level of involvement as everyone else on this list to me. -Mr. Magoolachub 06:07, 20 August 2011 (PDT)

I think it falls under "Some companies have no properties, but appear on advertisement posters in-game or in promotional materials." Rolandius 06:18, 20 August 2011 (PDT)
I wouldn't list it here since the company has nothing to do with TF2 beyond appearing on that hat. You'll notice there's also no entry for Monday Night Combat, Aperture Science, or whatever company Ellis works for. -- Alex2539 - (talk | contribs) -- 06:34, 20 August 2011 (PDT)
I guess promotional materials is TF2-only stuff. Rolandius 06:59, 20 August 2011 (PDT)

Spiral Knights

Does anyone remember if Mann Co.'s rival company was named in the Spiral Knights/Team Fortress 2 promotion? If so, that could be put here. Rolandius 06:22, 20 August 2011 (PDT)

This is a Wiki, why don't you look it up? » Cooper Kid (blether·contreebs) 15:04, 20 August 2011 (PDT)
Like I didn't already look at those? Sort of why I asked here if there was anything out there that named the company. Rolandius 19:04, 20 August 2011 (PDT)
Well if nothing about it was mentioned in those messages then I don't think it was mentioned. Alright :) User M-NINJA Signature.png 19:09, 20 August 2011 (PDT)

Newell and Sons

Could it reference to Gabe Newell, the founder of Valve and the TF2 team as the "sons"? DekoMan91 04:46, 2 September 2011 (PDT)

Not sure about the "sons" bit, but it's almost certainly a reference to Gabe Newell. » Cooper Kid (blether·contreebs) 06:31, 2 September 2011 (PDT)

Coop = Tecmo Koei?

The coop logo strongly resembles the Tecmo Koei logo so I'm going to go ahead and change it from "none". I'm just putting the reason behind the edit here. --Mattwo 20:09, 20 September 2011 (PDT)

This is incorrect. The logo is an actual real logo still used by some local grain cooperatives. It was the logo of the Double Circle Cooperative, which went defunct in 1985. But, it is still a common sight in rural America. The logo pre-dates Tecmo by over 40 years. Dzcomposer 11:24, 7 February 2012 (PST)

Captain Dan's army surplus

It may be a reference to the character of Captain Dan from Forrest Gump. I'm not sure, but it's the only prominent Captain Dan that I know of. Kane.malakos 20:49, 11 October 2011 (PDT)

Lieutenant Dan is in Forrest Gump, not Captain. SS2R 06:00, 30 October 2011 (PDT)

Resolution

Just to be clear (no pun intended), given the rather poor qualities of the logos (e.g. Telemax, Red Shed Beer, Blu Streak Beer) is it illegal to upload fan-made higher quality versions that follow the exact specifications of the original?

The quality of these pictures varies widely and does not lead to uniformity nor consistency (see the outlines of Red Shed Beer and Blu Streak Beer) within this wiki.

Are we truly stuck until Valve decides to release higher quality versions?

If this is true there needs to be a distinct warning to prevent budding,young graphic designers from uploading images that would go against such "purity". Upgrade 15:28, 8 February 2012 (PST)

Provision

That thing on the dispenser. I dont know why but it sounds familiar... Lucasthefourth ~Slash and burn!~ 05:22, 2 July 2012 (PDT)

Gray Gravel Co

After reading Shadow Boxers I think it's quite clear and obvious that Gray owns Gray's Gravel Co after the sign was shown in his base
