[edit] PG-13?

Can you guys give me a good reason why you keep censoring back the interview? Yes, it's wrong to put PG-13 language on a fansite for a PG website, but what's wrong with my foul language warning? I mean, if we censor every swear TBC say, should't we start censoring everytime Strong Bad says "crap" (a swear to some)? --Trogga

HRWiki:About. No swears. Ever. If someone cares that much about it they can read the actual interview. →FireBird
Plus 'crap' is on a slightly different level from '****', '***', and especially '****'. If we start allowing swears, it would lower the dignity of the Wiki. Before long, people would start swearing on all their talk comments, in the articles, and this wouldn't be a family safe site anymore. Besides, most people who really want to know what's behind the stars can usuall guess by the context, and there is always the source at the bottom too, yes. Thunderbird 05:11, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Still, I don't see anything wrong with an uncensored transcript with a warning. While I do hate trolls who add profanity to a family site, what if the site became more vulgar? (highly unlikely, but still) Would we censor transcripts for something that's not for kids anymore? If the interviews gave TBC freedom of speech, why can't we? --Trogga 16:07, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Trogga and I might not agree on a lot - but we DO agree on this point. It's one article that will never be transcribed properly if censored. I doubt everyone and his brother is going to start using profanities just because we transcribe an interview that contained them. --Jay (Talk) 16:11, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Second Jay and Trogga. Aurora the Homestar Coder 16:52, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I also agree with Trogga. See my comments (and other's) at Talk:Interviews and Public Appearances. -- Tom 19:19, 29 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I've posted my comment on this at Talk:Interviews and Public Appearances. I think the general rule is that "If it's on the site, it's acceptable here", meaning if H* started to use a swear word, it would most likely have to be allowed here. That's how it is at the moment (I don't know what would happen if H* did become less family friendly). RAINERtalk 09:13, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Ditto. So what if there are swears? I'm 12, and I know this is more family friendly than my school is. --Ookelaylay 02:17, 15 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Copyright

Uh... I'm clearly seeing the following at the bottom of this interview:

Copyright © 2001 by Staff, All Rights Reserved

I'm hoping whoever put this here got permission first and just forgot to post on the discussion page about it. -- Tom 23:32, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Okay I'll go send an email to them now. EDSMILDE
In case anyone was wondering... here's what they sent me:
First, I wrote them an email asking if we could use the transcript on this page (I posted a link to this article). A few days later, Greg sent me:
I'll talk to Stephan since it's his interview you're interested in
then a few days later
Go ahead, thanks for asking!


[edit] External Link

On the uncensored version, should the warning be removed since there's already a warning about the transcript? EDSMILDE

[edit] Date

When was this interview made? Meneth 14:23, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

Some time in 2001 most likely. No exact date though. Thunderbird 15:52, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Article name ("wtf" inclusion)

The site's name was "wtf i'm l33t", not simply "l33t". I'm assuming this article's name came about as a result of HRWiki:Swears and trying to avoid "what the f**k". Although still impolite, the initialism is not quite as offensive as explicitly spelling out the phrase. In addition, the article already features "wtf" in the intro paragraph and in an image. Is there a particular objection to renaming this article to include the site's name? -- Bleu Ninja 17:33, 27 July 2021 (UTC)

Making this more official with a Template:rename tag. I suggest this article be renamed to wtf i'm l33t Interview, while l33t Interview (censored) keeps its name as-is to maintain its censored state. Any objections or suggestions? -- Bleu Ninja 20:07, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
I'd prefer to keep the name as-is. I don't think the current name causes problems and i'd rather have links to this page and any search results retain the original, censored name. --Stux 20:15, 29 July 2021 (UTC)
