It looks to me like StroBro went TheWhiteboardless sometime around the last few of these, and is using real actual dead trees with notebook lines scaled up to his giant mitts. This should be mentioned, right? In the article and then in the trivia on whichever one did the switch'em'over

Cleanup

Now that this has been released on YouTube, this should be a real page. I copied the text straight from the temporary page. We need to add images and YouTube watch links. The intro could be reworked, and we should probably break those long paragraphs up a bit. — It's dot com 04:15, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Transcript Templates

In case anyone was wondering what all the {{#ifeq:}}s and <noinclude>s were all about, I was trying to make it so that typing {{:Skills of an Artist|1}} would show the first episode transcript, {{:Skills of an Artist|3}} would show the third, and so on. This way, we won't have to edit both this page and User:Purple Wrench/sandbox (soon @StrongBadActual) if we needed to change the transcript. I'm having trouble getting this to work. Could anyone help? Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 06:06, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

Nevermind. I changed it so that Purple Wrench's sandbox links to the transcript instead of showing the full version. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:46, 23 October 2017 (UTC)

Episode Transcripts

It appears that there are a handful of these episodes now. Would it make sense to make a separate page for each episode and create a category for them? The Knights Who Say Ni 01:33, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

I was originally against this idea, but that was before they started putting them on YouTube. With all these new episodes coming out all the time, getting more and more complicated, I think it might be the best and most organized option. After all, we have individual pages for other YouTube videos. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:54, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
You know what, the more I think about it, the more I like this idea. Definite support. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 05:32, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
But what will they be called? [[Skills of an Artist - Sammich]], like the YouTube titles, or just plain [[Sammich]]? Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:15, 13 September 2017 (UTC) P.S. Here's an example of what seperate pages would be like.
Well, the Strong Bad Emails don't all have "Strong Bad Email - " in the title, so I lean towards leaving "Skills of an Artist - " out. The Knights Who Say Ni 00:59, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, that's a good point. I agree. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 03:49, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
I'll just go ahead and create the individual pages then (unless someone disagrees). I can't think of any reason not to. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 04:53, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Transcript Format

So this is a thing that needs discussing. We need a better format for our Skill of an Artist transcripts. Currently, they're a mess of regular and italic text, which isn't super for readability. They could probably be improved a little with some more line breaks. But here's a thought that I had— what if we arranged our transcripts in table format, with stage directions on the left and dialogue on the right? Especially since a great deal of the time Strong Bad draws and speaks simultaneously. (And when I say stage directions, I mean the ones that dictate what he's drawing or what appears on the screen— stuff like {speaking in a robotic monotone} can stay on the dialogue side.) Anyway, I think two-column transcripts like that would be easier on the eye. Anyone, thoughts? Lira (talk) 17:14, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

A table would probably be the best option, despite being kind of unorthodox for transcripts. I think it would be more organized and easier to read, though, so I support. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:15, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
I think we could use the "regular" transcript way as soon as each episode has its own page. -174.62.238.201 01:01, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Whiteboard

It looks to me like StroBro went TheWhiteboardless sometime around the last few of these, and is using real actual dead trees with notebook lines scaled up to his giant mitts. This should be mentioned, right? In the article and then in the trivia on whichever one did the switch'em'over
