Here's a question: Why do we need this? There's nothing that needs to be explained about it. If you ever wwant to know everything about it, just go watch i love you! I think it should be DELETED

Because he appeared in more than just i love you. He's also a member of the Homestarmy, you know. This should not at all be deleted. Aurora the Homestar Coder 01:25, 14 Jun 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Capitalization

Anyone think that this should be moved to Painting of a Guy with a Big Knife or even Painting Of A Guy With A Big Knife (see How Do You Type With Boxing Gloves On?) The all lower caps makes it look unorganized, and we usually use the title clause. Just beacuse SB was too lazy to put caps doesn't mean we have to. Dr. Clash 14:47, 4 March 2007 (UTC)

Flaw in your reasoning: Strong Bad was correct not to capitalize it in the first place. —BazookaJoe 01:06, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
Also, you could've waited for consent before moving. You aren't always right. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 01:12, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

Oops, sorry. I thought we always used the title clause. Should we keep it this way, or revert? Dr. Clash 01:16, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

I kinda like this page the way Dr. Clash had it, but if everyone else doesn't, that's okay with me. -Brightstar Shiner 01:23, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
In my opinion, we shouldn't use title case when it's not a proper name. Thus, How do you type with boxing gloves on? gets my vote. I might bring this up sometime in HRWiki:Da Basement. In the meantime, I'm in favor of a revert. —BazookaJoe 01:25, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
I concur Painting of a Guy with a Big Knife and How do you type with boxing gloves on? (the latter of which BTW is the first line of said article!) New Standards for these (while we're in that mood) would be good too! --Stux 01:42, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
I don't know any other way to say it, so here's where I currently stand, confused:
<BazookaJoe> I want to say that that pseudocharacter has never received a real name proper, but it's the pseudocharacter part that gets me.
<BazookaJoe> "A proper noun is a noun that picks out a unique entity"
<BazookaJoe> So... because there's that one unique painting guy that acts like a character of its own, does that automatically mean that it should get caps in its fan-established "name"?
<BazookaJoe> so many blurred lines and assumptions leading to my initial conclusion that I can no longer keep the logic straight.
<BazookaJoe> Or maybe I'm making it too hard.

{replying to Stux after edit conflict} Ooo! I love new standards! Let's do it! That being said, I agree completely with what Stux said. -Brightstar Shiner 02:21, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
