[edit] Deletion

I'm not sure how notable this running gag is. There's also special text in interview, pizzazz, death metal, and probably a couple of other emails, but since they don't fit the scope of this page (when the special text is something that Strong Bad mumbles), should they be added to the scope of this page? Or should we leave as it is, with two instances, which is not enough for an article, and so have it deleted?

The introduction to this article should be rewritten to broaden its scope so the examples above can be included. In fact, I've just done that. Assuming this information isn't covered elsewhere, the article should be kept. — It's dot com 17:11, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
I have to add my vote for keep as well. Some of them may be listed on Strong Bad's Computers Surpassing Their Assumed Capabilities, but this is really a separate sub-occurrence. — Defender1031*Talk 18:49, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
I think it's interesting enough to keep. --Jay (Talk) 02:55, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

[edit] Name

I like neither the "special text" part not the "strong bad emails" part of the title. What makes text "special"... The fact that it's stylized beyond that which a console-based OS is generally capable of. On that note, it's not really about the appearances in the emails, as i don't think that if there is a time where it happens in something other than an email, we would or should exclude it from this page. My thought is to rename this page Stylized Text on Strong Bad's Computers. What do people think? — Defender1031*Talk 02:18, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I especially like the second part, about the computers. I like the first part okay. — It's dot com 03:49, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

[edit] ASCII Art

The "e email cummings" thing from rated was recently added to the page, which i removed since the text isn't stylized, and can be done with clever use of spaces. It was put back because "it seems like such cleverness belongs on this page; especially since preTTy starts higher than you're ends, and the er is above the v in clever". I must disagree. Including this opens the door for pretty much every instance of ascii art which ever appeared, since most of those don't have the text perfectly aligned either. We already have a page on ASCII art, which is a different sort of joke, and everything fits nicely there. Such cleverness belongs on a DIFFERENT page, not this one. I've added it there and removed it from here. — Defender1031*Talk 14:27, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

I dunno, I think it's kind of a reach to call that "ASCII art". At the same time, it's still the same font and point size as normal... --Jay (Talk) 18:06, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
