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? hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 06:06, 26 August 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. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 23:54, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
You know what, the more I think about it, the more I like this idea. Definite support. hegtcX1.png 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]]? hegtcX1.png 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. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 03:49, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Mmm, Dog Pudding

When I was originally transcribing End Boss, there was no question in my mind that Stinkoman said "dog doody". So when anonny made his pudding edit, I was all set to revert... but I gave it another listen, and lo and behold now I hear "pudding" every time. Which admittedly makes a lot less sense. Now it's clear that not everyone hears the same thing. What does everyone think? Is it "doody", or "pudding"? Lira (talk) 11:22, 12 September 2017 (UTC)

I have been hearing 'pudding' from the get-go, myself. And considering Stinkoman's speech patterns, past encounter with 'pudding', and Sticklyman's role as a 20X6 Poopsmith, I think it's right in character. --Neumannz 15:34, 12 September 2017 (UTC)
Hey, this isn't dirt! Iiit's pudding! I kind of sorta reverted the edit without actually listening to it, because I distinctly remembered it not being pudding. But now... I read this talk post, listened to it again, and... weird. Suddenly everything is pudding all up ons. Thanks, anonny, for correcting my ears. And sorry for reverting that. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 01:27, 13 September 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. hegtcX1.png 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. - 01:01, 15 September 2017 (UTC)

Suggesting addition of article on back sass

This is at least the third time that sassing back has been brought up on the site - Looking at a Thing in a Bag, Peasant's Quest Movie Trailer, and Peasant's Quest Animatic (if that counts separately?) also bring it up. -- 19:13, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

It's not really exclusive to H*R, and there are only three appearances, but it seems like it might be a running gag. I wouldn't be against a page for it. (I don't think PQMT and PQA count as seperate instances, though.) hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 22:15, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
