Format

This page does not follow the format at all. Please look at emails one through twenty-two for examples. And take a look at the TranscriptionStandards page. Please. -- Tom 08:34, 28 Jul 2004 (MST)

Holy crap!!!!
I was just trying to get it to look like PomPom email. I didnt relize how diffrent the page looks in the normal skin. (I had a diffrent skin up to speed up page loading on my old computer.) I'll get to work fixing it right away. -James
Man, thanks for catching all those, Tom. This is a lot of work. -- JoeyDay 11:09, 28 Jul 2004 (MST)
Hey, I didn't catch them all. I left some for you guys. -- Tom 11:23, 28 Jul 2004 (MST)
Man, I thought I'd cleaned up most of the problems with it, but it looks like there were plenty more. Page formatting can be a pain. :-P --James
Is it normal for the Cheat's dialogue to be spelled out? Also, Firebert's action figure isn't listed as an Inside Reference to action figure, or as a fast-forward to Cheat Commandos, just explained under Easter Eggs. Is there a non-redundant way to do this? --notstrongorbad 04:18, 3 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Removed fun fact

I removed this fun fact:

  • Pay close attention when the Homestarmy arrives in Strong Badia. Homsar just wobbles off!

Because this had already been acknowledged in the transcript. --Upsilon

Date Fun Fact

Is the fun fact

  • This email was added on January 5, 2004

really needed? We have the Updates section for the dates, so why should we have it here? --FireBird|Talk

no-Jhonka

Hold the Line!

What's that supposed to mean?

Strong Sad is trying to to keep the the Homestarmy from retreating so that the Strongbadians won't win the "battle". This kind of line is common in war movies. --Stong Bad 17:19, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Is that line from any particular movie we could reference? -- TaranchulaVamp15 14:33, 29 Sept 2005 (UTC)

Please note what they say about it in the DVD Commentary, TaranchulaVamp. --notstrongorbad

Do you HAS what it takes?

When Homestar says "Do you has what it takes...?" during his little recruitment speech (with particular emphasis on the "has"), I'd always thought that that was a Yellow Dellow reference. At one point in The Yellow Dellow, Homestar says "I think I has the solution!" This incorrect choice of words is mentioned by Strong Sad in the DVD commentary. I'd always heard Homestar's "Do you has what it takes...?" to be a reference to that (replacing "have" with "has").--Rocketlex 08:37, 2 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Hankatollah?

This is the stuff of which bad Real World References are made, but for that reason I was kind of surprised not to find anything in the history speculating that "Hankatola" is a reference to the Islamic title Ayatollah. Given the militaristic them of this email and current global events, this would be somewhat interesting. --notstrongorbad 04:18, 3 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Tape rewind noise

It's interesting to note that Strong Sad didn't forget to rewind. The rewind noise is clearly audible after the second "YEAH!". - SoulSkorpion 10:14, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Yes, and it is indeed noted --phlip TC 10:20, 13 November 2005 (UTC)
