I was trying to put the entries in chronological order, but I can't find out when the character videos date from! Where is our page on the Character Videos page? —AbdiViklas 23:16, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

Heh... Never mind, I found it. Don't know why that was so hard. —AbdiViklas 23:18, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Aw, rats. I just found it myself, and was ready to be a hero by providing a link. --DorianGray

In other news, what about considering a different title for this article, because of making out? This really ought to be a redirect for that. Although this is the most logical and direct title I could think of. At the very least we need a disambig, though. —AbdiViklas 23:21, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

What would the disambig go to, then? "Making out"? --DorianGray
No, I mean a disambig line at the top of this article like that in Pom Pom or Marzipan. The email making out can simply link here with a remark like "Strong Bad went on to mention making out many more times." —AbdiViklas 23:39, 27 November 2005 (UTC)
Oh-oh-oh! One o' those things. Yeah, one o' those would totally belong on this page. "This page is about Strong Bad's fantasy", etc. --DorianGray
Should we list all the appearances of "Making Out With Marzipan Is Totally Awesome" on this page as well? --videlectrix.pngENUSY discussionitem_icon.gif user.gifmail_icon.gif 05:51, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
That would be problematic, since at the moment this page (and links to it) are geared toward what Strong Bad says. If we did include that, it would also bring up the question of The Cheat's theme song, virus, and maybe the Easter egg of do over. —AbdiViklas 06:24, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
I like Making Out. That is, besides a literal interpretation of my statement there, I like it as a page title. — It's dot com 06:27, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Yup; that's kind of no longer a problem with the disambig now. —AbdiViklas 06:51, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Quite an interesting comment without that last clause, though. ;) - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)

[edit] <small> tags.

We don't use these for the other running gag pages, so I took them off. - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)

I've been seeing them used on other article pages. (Darned if I can give you an example at the moment...) — Image:kskunk_fstandby.gif KieferSkunk (talk) — 20:33, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Pie would be one. I gotta say, I think it looks a little weird. The small tags are kinda hard to read. --DorianGray
I've been the one who's been doing that... if you can find another format, that'd be great, but having normal text makes it way too difficult to simply read through the sightings. (Well, here it doesn't, but on some of them it does, and I'd like to be consistant.) - Joshua
You could try bolding the links if you want. What other ones use small in this site? --Stux 21:05, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Eh... Duct Tape for one. I think it looks good, but bold facing the links could work. What screen resolution are you using? - Joshua 21:47, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
Boldface might not look bad at all. I went ahead and un-smalled Duct Tape as well (if you know of any others, those should be de-small-ified as well.) This weekend I've been using everything from 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024. It looks tiny in the last one. --Stux 00:26, 29 November 2005 (UTC)
I'll do Pie. No one bother it, please. --DorianGray
Ok, I'll try not to ;). I bolded Duct Tape. --Stux 00:30, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Powered by The Cheat was like this. I changed it lots. SaltyTalk! 05:49, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Bold/Italics?

Um, since when do we do this? Have I missed something? —FireBird|Talk 17:00, 22 December 2005 (UTC)

I've noticed it happening, and tried to remove them where inapropriate as much as possible. Currently, there is no standard for this sort of thing. I, personally, don't believe that appearances should be inscribed in this manner. — Lapper (talk) 17:01, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
Me neither. It's ugly. —FireBird|Talk 17:03, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
When there are a list of appearances with descriptions, there needs to be a way to be able to easily go through the appearances while ignoring the descriptions if someone wants to. Here are the ways it has been done:
  • Email do over - It is implied that Marzipan made out with The Cheat, dressed as Homestar.
  • Email do over - It is implied that Marzipan made out with The Cheat, dressed as Homestar.
  • Email do over - It is implied that Marzipan made out with The Cheat, dressed as Homestar.
This was the second solution, as people with small resolutions had trouble reading the small text. - 17:06, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
I'm not sure. I've never liked bold text in articles (not to mention a huge chuck of bold), because it's very distracting. In fact, I'm fine with the way we used to do it. —FireBird|Talk 17:09, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
Well, the old way looks fine by itself, but when there's a large list with big discriptions, it becomes very hard to just look at the all the appearances without having to fish through all the text. - Joshua 17:11, 22 December 2005 (UTC)
I agree with Firebird on this. However, we should bring the conversation to somewhere more noticable to get into an agreement on stanard use. — Lapper (talk) 02:47, 25 December 2005 (UTC)
Twin Characters has a good, unique format. I'm going to try it here and see what happens. - Joshua 16:21, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Making Out With Tawny?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Tawny the drummer of Advantage? And doesn't Gary say "but if their guitarist is better than me, there's no way I'm making out with her."

Or something...?

Unless we're mistaken in thinking red-headed Tawny is the drummer... This should probs be fixed.

Wish we knew the rest of the bands name. --lustmyeyes <3 10:22, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
