Does anyone know how to make an email address be clickable in the article? I think this page is very organized because someone greatly improved my work. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif

Check the external links down at the bottom there. --DorianGray 20:45, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif


Does anyone object to me moving the transcripts from email thunder to this page? BBG 21:56, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Article title

I think we should move this article to Homestar Runner Email, to make the article title match up with Strong Bad Email. "Hremail" is just short for "Homestar Runner Email" anyway, like how "sbemail" is short for "Strong Bad Email". Homestar-Winner (talk) 20:56, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

It's never actually referred to as "Homestar Runner Email", though. "HREmail" is consistently used throughout. However, I do see your point, and would not be opposed to it, should it happen. --DorianGray 21:02, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
Done and done. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:10, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
There was no consensus to move. OptimisticFool 21:21, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
I vote for move, and since there seems to be no evident resistance against moving... --Sysrq868 21:45, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
Take it easy, fellas. This discussion has only been open for about an hour; give folks some time to weigh in. I myself am with DorianGray. OptimisticFool 22:00, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
Aaaaand a consensus has not been made. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:06, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
"HREmail" was what was said. "Homestar Runner Email" is what we infer that it means. No move. — His Highness, Sir Hon. Rabbi Dr. Defender1031 The Third PhD. Esq.  His illustrious talk page 21:14, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
But we have Strong Bad Email and we don't have the article named Sbemail now do we? What if we moved Strong Bad Email to Sbemail and let everyone infer that it's Strong Bad Emails, like you said we should do for this article?! We need to have the proper name for articles, not the abbreviation. Imagine what would happen if we did HR, SB, CZ, PP, ect. It's total madness! I vote move. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:22, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
The difference is, they're CALLED "strong bad emaiuls" and just shortened to "sbemails". here, they're already called "hremails". — His Highness, Sir Hon. Rabbi Dr. Defender1031 The Third PhD. Esq.  His illustrious talk page 21:28, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
We still shouldn't have the abbreviation. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:30, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
It was only called "HREmails" meaning that it's not an abbreviation. It's its name, until and unless we're shown otherwise. — His Highness, Sir Hon. Rabbi Dr. Defender1031 The Third PhD. Esq.  His illustrious talk page 21:34, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
We know that the proper word is Homestar Runner Emails. It makes no sense for us to have only an abbreviation when we KNOW what it is, regardless of what the characters call it or not. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:39, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

We report things as they are, not as we "know" them to be. — His Highness, Sir Hon. Rabbi Dr. Defender1031 The Third PhD. Esq.  His illustrious talk page 21:42, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Fine. Let's keep it the bad way. It should at least be moved to Hremail without the s. Like Strong Bad Email. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 21:44, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
Wait, not yet. Remember, Homestar calls it "Hremails" referring to his email show and calls Strong Bad's email show "Sbemails" right afterwards. Sounds to me like Homestar just felt like abbreviating. If he had called his email show "Hremails" and then called Strong Bad's email show "Strong Bad Email" right after then that would prove that "Hremails" is the actual name. But Homestar calling it "Sbemails" proves that he was just shortening each of the names, right? Homestar-Winner (talk) 00:49, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
I couldn't agree more. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 01:59, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
A consensus still hasn't been reached. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 16:45, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

c'mon, guys! I even think it should be moved to Homestar Runner Email considering what homestarwinner said. i think it's a g-e-w-d GEWD idea. 18:51, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

The name "Homestar Runner Email" is, as of now, unofficial. Our article Strong Bad Email is named as such because of the site listed toon category. "Hremails" is the only way they've ever been reffered to as, therefore, the official name, until noted otherwise by TBC themselves, is "Hremails". That Game Dude 386 02:26, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
Why not just call the article "Hremail (Homestar Runner Email)" until the "official" name is announced? fuchsiania 04:54, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
The point is, before Homestar said "Hremails," he said that Strong Bad had "Sbemails." Both of them are short, meaning that Homestar abbreviated both of them for time sake.

move to homestar runner email? michaelXX2 told me this on irc, and i agreed, and since he's blocked, i'll post it. i just think we should. need i say more?? HSB150Homsarstrongbad150Homestar Runner!! 02:35, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Actually, it would help if you said more, because hearing an opinion is easier to base a page move on than just "Michael said something, I agreed...there ya' go". From what I hear, the "show" hasn't been referred to as "Homestar Runner Email"...only as "Hremails". So I think it makes sense to keep the article under this name. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 03:06, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Like I said, Homestar abbreviated "Sbemails." If he abbreviated "Sbemails," what makes you think he didn't abbreviate "Hremails?"
Yes, but the correct title for "sbemail(s)" is/are "Strong Bad Email(s)", whereas for "hremails", there is no official title as far as we know (and we might never know). DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 03:48, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
What in the world makes you think that Homestar didn't mean the same freakin' CONCEPT ABOUT HIS ABBREVIATION?! WHAT MAKES HIS DIFFERENT?!
I'd like to chime in with a "who cares?". Seriously, this is among the more useless discussions I have ever encountered on a wiki. I hope you are proud of yourselves. That said, there are two main ideologies at stake here: should we go with the standard we are already using (Strong Bad Email --> Homestar Runner Email), or should we go by the name the characters use in the cartoon? I'm personally more enamored of the former, but quite frankly, it just doesn't matter. One will always redirect to the other. --Blu Aardvark (talk) (edits) 04:01, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
Move then.
I deliberately outdented my response, as I wasn't replying to any particular poster, but to my opinion on the dispute in its entirety. I don't oppose a move, nor do I oppose keeping it where it's at. What I do oppose is mindless bickering over an issue that, quite frankly, is entirely 100% meaningless. --Blu Aardvark (talk) (edits) 05:23, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
