[edit] SB Email 200

Remember 100 emails ago when if you typed in "sbemail100.html" it would emd up showing Strong Bad do something? Well it's happened again with e-mail 200, this time with the Deleteheads. [1]Here it is.

Thanks! But you are a bit late actually. A few people have already mentioned this, and we already have an article on it. Homestar-Winner (talk) 23:43, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] New Podcast

Winter Pool was released sometime this morning.

[edit] RSS/Atom feed

Just FYI, the RSS feed available over at now lists only 2008 wiki updates, for your syndicated enjoyment. 04:57, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

I made one too. It lists the type as the title. Details are the content of the post RSS feed. Just in case blackforge is down or something (I've never had consistency with that site). 00:41, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

[edit] You guys...

There was an update to the store on April 1- the Limozeen T-Shirts- and it hasn't been listed. Either that, or I'm missing something here. Anyway, I'm not an expert on editing beyond spelling error fixing, so someone is going to have to fix it unless, again, I just have some kind of server problem or misunderstanding. -AFAC

You're right — this still needs to be added. Go ahead and add it if you like! Trey56 22:07, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Vii update?

Just noticed they added SBCG4AP to the Viidelectrix, but I'm not sure when. Any1 know when? -- Lazylaces Talk 22:33, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

It's noted in the Viidelectrix entry, and I seem to remember it was added not long after the game was announced back in April. However, no idea precisely when. wbwolf (t | ed) 22:42, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
Someone can probably check when the SWF was last modified, but I'm not sure how to do it myself. --DorianGray 03:32, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Future Update?

Telltale Games has just announced that SBCG4AP will be out 11 Aug. Can we put that on the update lists now, or do we have to wait until Monday? wbwolf (t | ed) 19:44, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Yes, do it now! NOW!! – The Chort 19:50, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
Actually, I think we should wait until Monday. This is just a message talking about an update that is about to come but has not yet. Homestar-Winner (talk) 19:51, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
But they've revealed the released date for the game. It's been confirmed on on the Telltale Games website itself. Why do we have to keep it a secret for six more days until this Monday? 'Cause if that's what you're suggesting, it's not going to be much of a secret. Why wait until it gets announced on the Homestar Runner website? Won't that be pulling the wool over the eyes of readers of this wiki? – The Chort 20:00, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
We include New Toon Soons in updates, i see no difference here. — Defender1031*Talk 20:03, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
No, I am not suggesting that we keep it a secret. I am merely suggesting that we don't say whenever TTG has a new release date and instead just say when the game is actually released. It wouldn't be a secret for anyone who goes on TTG or reads this topic. But if we decide top keep it, I at least think it should be removed from Template:whatsnew and only said on H* updates 2008. Homestar-Winner (talk) 20:09, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
Again, "New Toon Soon" is not so different from "New Game Soon". — Defender1031*Talk 20:10, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
It doesn't matter if we put it on the updates list or not. No one cares. No one is going to care if it is on it or not. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 20:13, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
The fact that this discussion is taking place would seem to imply that you are incorrect, sir. — Defender1031*Talk 20:16, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
But deep down inside their selves they honestly don't care. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 20:21, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

So what you're saying, H-w, is that we shouldn't put it on the What's New template because it might get delayed again and that the What's New template should only record updates on H* itself (excluding the Dev Blog). I'm pretty sure it's coming out this Monday, as previously it was said to be coming out this month. There's going to be a lot of fans wanting to know where to put this event in their diaries though, so it has been added to the SBCG4AP and Hairstar Ruiner articles so that they can find out there, if they bother to read said articles. The discussion here is whether this is a need to put it on the front page for convenience. – The Chort 20:21, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

Ok. Here's a compromise: We don't write that SBCG4AP is coming out on Aug 11, we write that Telltale is announcing that SBCG4AP is coming out on Aug 11. There's a difference. The first one can be the subject of delays and could be considered speculative. the second one is a fact that's written on the official site of Telltale.

Brilliant. E.L. Cool, you are a star. – The Chort 20:30, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
Um, okay. I think I understand. I was in the middle of a long reply to The Chort's question when I saw you had posted this. Homestar-Winner (talk) 20:32, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

[edit] SBCG4AP Ep. 2 info page

Should it be added that on the Telltale site they posted a page for the second episode of Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People?

-Yet Again it is Ben. Don't think so...we linked to the page on the Strong Badia the Free page. That's good enough. DevonM(talk·cont-ribs) 01:07, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Strong badia the free release

Strong Badia the Free releases Sep. 14! DrPepper42 13:24, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

According to whom, IGN? If so, please note that we've already discussed that they're not a reliable source for dates (indeed, in the very same thread in which you just commented). Unless it's from Telltale, H* or Nintendo itself, it's unverified and doesn't belong on the page. Heimstern Läufer 13:45, 8 September 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, it's out. 16:11, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

[edit] sbemail 200

They uploaded a fake "address not found" clip to just today. (I checked that link yesterday and it wasn't up yesterday.) 22:16, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up! For the time being, I've added an invisicomment on the main what's new page asking that Page Load Error not be listed there, in order to give more people the chance to find it as an Easter egg. — It's dot com 23:16, 19 September 2008 (UTC)
