Buddy13 FW16.png Are you sure this is the debut of Preacherbot? Wasn't he at Calculon's wedding or something before this? Or was that someone else? I've confused myself.

User:Gopher/sig Checked and you're right, he appeared in I, Roommate. Fixing it now.

"Correct" title

I'm fairly certain both "is" and "Is" are gramatically correct, also neither are used on the only official location (DVD box, where it's all uppercase). Most of our articles are currently assuming the lowercase "is", "and", etc. so for consistancy, and lack of official case, it should probably move back. Also all our links point to the old location. - Quolnok 16:57, 15 November 2006 (PST)

act names

i am changing the act names to the act names listed in the Monster Robot Maniac Fun Collection case as they are official. these might be official aswell and if so just change as you like it--My leg feels funny! 22:55, 29 August 2008 (BST)

Too many images?

I'm not sure if this is too many, but we are getting close to that point for this page. Certainly the image descriptions are too long in many cases and should probably be no more than three lines. If the text there is duplicating the main lists, then the description can be tiny. - Quolnok 09:12, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Right now, the image texts are items in the list as well, and are not duplicates. However, this may be confusing, as people would usually expect the cues from the images to be in the bullet point list, in order to avoid thinking that the image may belong to another section. And if they are duplicates, then they should only a mere 3 lines at most. However, I will say this, while it may be quite a few images, so far, it actually works quite well. But it is pushing the limits. But let's not forget this article was quite long to begin with, and without images, these articles can get quite a bore. --SvipTalk 11:10, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Alternating them left and right like that actually helps keep them from crowding, but I don't like the fact that they seem random: They have nothing to do with the actual text on the page. The images shouldn't be items in the list; they're there to support the text. And I don't think episodes really need a photo montage of the whole ep; they should really just illustrate key points. --Buddy 13:46, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Agreed. Some cases like those where the goofs are strictly visual, like the comparing shots of two different timeframes of the same scene, where there is a difference that shouldn't be, then an image supporting the text makes sense. But some of the images are not necessary for the text to make sense. In addition to that, I think the image filenames are not following our image rules. --SvipTalk 14:09, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Ok. i'll get rid of some of them. but some of them i like and should be on the page. to the editing page!--My leg feels funny! 20:47, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
Guys, how 'bout we do what we did for A Head in the Polls? With the goof in words and the image in a link? Look.
that might be a better idea. it doesn't look that good right now.--My leg feels funny! 21:53, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Origin of the episode's name

This is my first post on Infosphere so I apologize if I put this in the wrong place, but I added a couple lines to the introductory paragraph explaining the origin of this episode's name. Beelzebot 05:51, 9 April 2010 (CEST)

Well, welcome at first. Two things about your change. While it is already mentioned in short hand in the infobox on the right of the article (look for 'title reference'), such information is usually reserved for the allusions section. This is certainly not information for the introduction of the article.
A word about style on that matter is to keep the introduction section of the article as short as possible and only about the episode's content, not where its name comes from or trivia like that. When people want to read that, they will go to the appropriate section of the article. --Sviptalk 10:29, 9 April 2010 (CEST)
