What do you reckon is missing from the explanation? ––St.nerol (talk) 14:26, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

I'm running through the first comics and when I feel that something is missing it just gets the incomplete tag. Everyone is welcome to fix and remove this tag. The most worse error here was :) instead of :(.--Dgbrt (talk) 15:22, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
The happy smiley was after the sentence dryly explaining the fairly obvious thing that a sad smiley means sadness. It was totally intentional, meant as a joke, funny or not! It could have been ;) though. –St.nerol (talk) 07:55, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
The title text shows :( not more or less. If you have ideas beyond of this explain it, but do not change the original text.--Dgbrt (talk) 20:14, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
This is confused. How do you mean, I changed the original text? –St.nerol (talk) 09:36, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
Go here: [[1]], you did change the ":(" to ";)" and a few edits before you did ":)". I just did edit this to the correct sadness symbol. When Randall talks about apples you can't explain bananas.--Dgbrt (talk) 10:44, 10 July 2013 (UTC)
I'm removing the sentence. It was just a joke, but it wasn't appreciated. :( ––St.nerol (talk) 19:19, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
What the hell you are doing? We need an explain for the title text, even when it's simple.--Dgbrt (talk) 19:32, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
No. You don't need to explain what a smiley is. Everybody knows. Especially on the internet. There's got to be a limit; we don't, for example, explain the meaning of common english words. –St.nerol (talk) 08:18, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
*worst, not 'most worst'. :) Beanie (talk) 14:17, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

Is this the shortest title text? Fabian42 (talk) 10:56, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

If you don't count comics without any title text at all, then yeah, I'm pretty sure it is. SuperSupermario24 06:32, 1 June 2019 (UTC)
I'm sorry this is off topic, but, dgbrt, is your name a shortened version of "dogbert"?? I can't figure it out and its driving my insane. (also I think its completely fine to explain the meaniing of the ":(" but its defently not worth getting mad over)Apollo11 (talk) 9:23 March 7 2024 (EST)
