Table

Someone should make this page into a nice, good ol' table.

No, I think it's fine the way it is. --acekirby13 15:40, 7 May 2005 (UTC)

American/British spelling?

Hello;

I have seen, and not corrected, two instances of the word "labelled". This is the British spelling. Is there a localization preference?S Gleason 19:04, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

It may have been at least partially my fault. My dictionary lists both spellings as correct, but like you, it admits that the two-L'd version is more common in American English and the three-L'd in British. Since this is an American cartoon, we're supposed to use American spelling here in all cases (except transcripts, where SB misspells something on his computer or something like that), but I (and maybe others) simply didn't realize that one-L was right. My bad. Nobody's perfect. Go ahead and change it. --Jay (Gobble) 19:11, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)
I change words like "favourite" to "favorite" on this site, to keep it "American." You know, unless it is necessary to be spelled with a "u." May as well change "labelled" to the American version too. —BazookaJoe 19:15, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Thank you, both! I will use American spellings. S Gleason 20:34, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Page Move'd?

Shouldn't this page be moved to "Spelling and Grammar"? "Poorly Written Emails" would be good too, since that's what's in the Strong Bad Email template. Either one would make more sense, since the whole page isn't just about spelling. Any other opinions? Has Matt? (talk) 04:56, 30 December 2005 (UTC)

You've got a point, Mr. Matt. I agree unless anyone else has a good reason the page shouldn't be moved. Heimstern Läufer 04:59, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
I can't think of one. I 'gree too, and have occasionally wondered the same thing myself. --DorianGray
Well, what should it be moved to, exactly? "Spelling and Grammar", "Poorly Written Emails", or something else? Has Matt? (talk) 22:30, 1 January 2006 (UTC)
Whatever, I'm gonna be bold and move it to Poorly Written Emails. If anyone objects, please speak up. Has Matt? (talk) 13:37, 27 January 2006 (UTC)
