Not as bad as "The Leg" or the footnote idea, but i think it's still probably too confusing. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 23:31, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

:::::::::::::I agree. Leg' has my vote and- HEY! That wasn't nice, Defender. And yet you accuse ''me'' of personall attacks. Bad idea... grumble grumble.--[[User:Jellote|Jellote]] 13:02, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
 
:Yeah, I agree, but that still leaves us without a good option.  (I also agree with whoever originally questioned the Ledge spelling.)  Is "Lege" the best alternative?  That one's pronunciation isn't completely obvious from it's spelling, I think, though.  -[[Special:Contributions/132.183.140.175|132.183.140.175]] 00:55, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

::I think "ledge" really is the best spelling. The transcript ought to do as good a job as possible of reflecting the sounds we hear, and the sounds we hear in this case are exactly the same sound we hear in the word "ledge". The only other option I can think of would be something like "Lejj", but that just looks weird. "Leg" doesn't work; it's pretty much guaranteed to be misinterpreted, and "lege" is not much better in that respect. {{User:Heimstern Läufer/sig}} 04:50, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

::::If we're going to vote on this, my vote's for "'''Ledge'''", because it has an immediately recognizable, standard pronunciation and doesn't require any uglying up the transcript with footnotes, which isn't something that can be said for any of the alternatives.  [[User:Ingiald|Ingiald]] 15:43, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

:::::I don't understand why we shouldn't spell it "The Leg" or "The Leg'", as, not only do we have it spelt The Leg by TBC themselves, but it's not even pronounced "Ledge", as there is no "d", meaning that we have to spell it Leg ot Lege, and, thanks to the easter egg, we know it should be spelt Leg. We should spell it like that, then put a remark about how The Leg is pronouced ''like'' The Ledge. {{User:That_game_dude386/sig}} 21:06, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
