  1. Unreadable. IronLung 17:20, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
  2. Against I appreciate where it's going, but there's so much more potential for hilariousness in Billy Mays. -RAHB 01:41, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
Personally, I would implode it and start over from scratch but it's not my place to steamroll here unless asked. I understand anyone not liking it. I remember when I first saw the page and went Gaaaaaaah!! It's all-caps AND first person!--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  02:02, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Comments
  1. Comment Before I vote for this I would like see something done with improving its images, which seem rather tame compared to this maniac's manner of selling things. Dame PPsigPPlips.gifGUN PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 00:11, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Abstain. Shouting articles just don't do it for me, no matter how deserving the context. Necropaxx (T) {~} 16:02, Jan 6
  • Abstain. Per above about the images, plus the allcaps, plus there are wayyy too many quotes at the start there. Oh yeah, and he really doesn't need to be on the minor Jesii template, which doesn't need to be on the article. Yeh, some of it got me chuckling, but more of it might if it weren't ALL FUCKING CAPS. And I appreciate it's in the style of... But still... --UU - natter UU Manhole 16:11, Jan 6
  • But how does one write an article in the style of Billy Mayes speech patterns (loud bellowing) other than in all caps? Yes, its annoying; so is Billy Mays. Ergo, all caps is Billy Mays. Dame PPsigPPlips.gifGUN PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 16:24, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
    I know, it's quite the conundrum. I did acknowledge that. But still...  ;-) --UU - natter UU Manhole 16:36, Jan 6
You mean, "be still my beating heart"... Dame PPsigPPlips.gifGUN PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 18:58, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Comment: I really don't like this article in it's current state but I'm also being seduced by the thought of tweaking it. I think the raw selling power of Billy can be expressed with a mixture of standard font integrated with some CAPS and bold, using variations of the three to emote. My brain refuses to accept anything all caps and I might end up like Jett Travolta if I read the whole page in one sitting--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  19:58, 6 January 2009 (UTC)
Don't forget to make good use of large font sizes as well. And Oh, if someone can produce an image oBold textf Billy in a boy scout uniform, that would be nice, too. Dame PPsigPPlips.gifGUN PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 03:12, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Should he look like an adult in uniform or would you like a fat little boy scout with Billy's head? You're right about the extra-large font, perhaps switching to HTML for the entire document might be a good idea?--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  09:15, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Oh, no, just in his quotes. Too much and it loses its impact, just like the all caps in the entire article loses their impact. Or another idea is to take it the other way and make the print teeny tiny, and focus on his bad self esteem issues. And trust me, the man has self esteem issues.
