Technichal limitations[edit]

You know, this article's pretty short...I bet you could just copy all the text in it, move it to a new page with the right title, and delete this old one. --VolatileChemical 5 July 2005 22:53 (UTC)

The reason the article can not have a proper title is due to technical limitations. Wikipedia does not allow lowercase first letters for article titles. More information is available in the lower case first letter section. Additionally, page moves are done using the move feature, as simply copying the text does not maintain an accurate article edit history. -- TomPreuss 19:38, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
Well...of course. Right. That's why. You're not aloud lowercase letters as the first letter of a title should know that, Tempress. I mean, all big and important like that. Having a photo of yourself on your page, and the date you made should live up to your reputation, Tempest. --VolatileChemical 15:00, 30 July 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia and advertising[edit]

The article is obviously a product profile, which in itself isn't bad as long as there is no subjective judgement passed on its quality. However with the link at the end to "Buy "strongbad_email.exe" at the Homestar Runner store" it kind of turns it into an ad. Seems to clash with the wikipedia ethic in my mind. I'm not brave enough to remove it however.

Subject matter[edit]

I thought this was about the strongbad_email.exe program that Strong Bad uses, but to change it all off into a stub about the program would probably not be right. --Addict 2006 22:02, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Right. I don't even know how we could make a full article about the program. It would ultimately end up linking to Strong Bad Email, which, now that I think about it, doesn't exist on Wikipedia. :( Maybe we should explain the connection to Strong Bad's e-mail client, and then provide the appropriate links. —BazookaJoe 05:03, 25 November 2006 (UTC)
The article has this title because strongbad_email.exe is the actual title of the DVD set. There's no reason to change it. 19:38, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
You're missing the point, man. The DVD set is named after what Strong Bad types to access his e-mail client. —BazookaJoe 21:21, 18 January 2007 (UTC)
