[edit] Why cleanup?

Well, this page need a category, a leading image, and either a table to a gallery with all the cereals, along with any explanation on what kind are they (according to Strong Bad). It's not a stub, as it have all the info, but the page needs an overhaul. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 12:39, 21 April 2008 (UTC) This needed it's own page?

[edit] Title capitalisation

I'm just wondering if the title of this page goes against standard conventions with regards to "Specially Marked" - we never use caps in email names. Should this be changed back? -- Mithent 15:41, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

Good question. I'm the one who changed it, and here's my reasoning: while article names for the sbemails themselves are uncapitalized, when their names appear in other article titles, they've been capitalized in the past. Examples:
There are others, but I can't think of what they are off the top of my head... Trey56 17:41, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
Good point, there are precedents for doing that. -- Mithent 18:47, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Repetitive?

There's gotta be some better way do this page so we don't need to see "May be from Iowa, only likely to include fitness products." five times, no?

I don't think so. Strong Bad lumps all those cereals under this description, so there's not much we can say about each one individually. The same problem occurs with Minor Video Games. – The Chort 14:20, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Name

The "breakfast" is unnecessary. We just call it "cereal".

Cereal is something else entirely. — Defender1031*Talk 01:58, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Though unrelated to the original suggestion, I think this should be moved to "Breakfast Cereals from specially marked" since it can probably be considered that all Strong Bad Emails are pronouns. -- 18:17, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Um, no, they're not pronouns. Pronouns are things like "I", "you", "him", and "them". Did you mean "proper nouns"? Though proper nouns are usually capitalized, it'd be a fair point. --Jay v.2021 (Good riddance 2020) 18:19, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
