[edit] Length of Article Title

Is it just me, or does this article have the longest, most awkward title in the entire wiki? --DorianGray

And yet, how could it be shortened? --Jay (Talk) 04:29, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)
That is a fair point... Forget I brought it up. Although, making a shorter redirect or something may help.
A problem! A problem I say! Count Longardeaux's? Count Longardeaux's Book? Granted, it needs to be shortened. I just don't know how [it should be]. Edit: I made up my mind. Call it Count Longardeaux's Book. —BazookaJoe 04:43, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I was thinking that very title myself... It's short and to the point, and will be mostly what anyone rememebers anyway (assuming someone can spell 'Longardeaux' off the top of their head). We can put the full title in the article's description. --DorianGray
Sorry for the nitpick, but shouldn't Count Longardeaux's Book be a redirect to the full title, rather than the other way around? --Jay (Talk) 04:54, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)
It's a bit of an eyesore to have a page title take up two lines on your monitor. But I can see what you're saying. Undo my hasty page move if it's better for the wiki. —BazookaJoe 04:58, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I think that Count Longardeaux's Book is an appropriate title. — InterruptorJones 19:17, 13 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Image Gallery

It has been suggested that there should be an image gallery for all the record pages. So far I am neutral on this one. Any thoughts? —BazookaJoe 19:58, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I thought of that, and it is a bad idea in my view. They should just check the email. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 20:03, 26 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Homsar Record?

Where did the Homsar record come from?SparkPlug 16:32, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

It's an Easter egg in the email. See record book for more information. --DorianGray

[edit] The Picture?

I don't understand the picture on the book? What is it? --TheYellowDart(t/c)

It's Count Longardeaux. Looks like a vampire type. - link_icon.gifThe Joe(Talk) 22:01, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
I know that, but what is he doing? Scratching his... uh... pectorials? --TheYellowDart(t/c)
Looks more like he's holding his cape about him. Sinisterly. --DorianGray
Oh, now I see it. But it's still kinda controversial what he's actually doing. --TheYellowDart(t/c)

[edit] Images not fair use

Sorry guys, but I believe the pictures of each page might need to go. See Talk:Strumstar Hammer for a brief discussion. Loafing 23:35, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Hmm... maybe if it was a whole toon we were screenshotting here, it wouldn't be fair use. (Hammer was like a seperate toon in itself) I think it's fine to screenshot a subject of a toon. Dr. Clash 23:44, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
You've got a point there. Not sure what to make of it. Well, if I'm the only one who's worried, then it should probably stay ;-) Loafing 23:57, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
This is not in violation of fair use as applies to our activities. We are not replicating an existing work in whole or in part, and we infact are distilling existing copyrighted information to make it simpler. Thaqt cannot be seen as in violation of copyright.

Hm...tough call on this one, but I lean towards it being okay. If all these pages were viewable consecutively in an Easter egg, I would lean towards not including screenshots of each one. But since they're gleaned from different parts of the email, I think it's okay. (I don't know if that reasoning makes sense other than in my head.) Trey56 00:19, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] How to reorganize/rename/re-what?

In light of dictionary, this page needs a major overhaul. Do we include the Worldly Records and Jerktionary on one page, since they are part of a series? Do we make separate pages for each book? In either case, we probably need to change the name of this article. I think it'd work better as simply "Count Longardeaux", with a summary of each book. (similar to Bookazon.com). wbwolf (t | ed) 20:55, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Looks like we went with separate pages. --DorianGray 22:28, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps Count Longardeaux could serve as a disambiguation page for both articles? NMRodo 22:51, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
That sounds like a good idea. --DorianGray 22:56, 5 September 2009 (UTC)
Maybe this page title (Count Longardeaux's Book) should be a disambiguation page, and this page should be renamed "Count Longardeaux's Record Book. Strong Vader 00:07, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
