Does anyone one know what the average time between sending an email and it becoming an email is?

is it like one week, or months?

thanks.

There are interviews on the wiki. In 2003, THC said "aboout 10 hours". Emails are longer now. So maybe even 14 hours.

Also, their email client deletes everything every three days, so it's unlikely you'll see you email on the site more than a week after you send it.

The question was pretty straightforward, DTP, and you got it completely wrong. Try reading again:

Like this:

A) Person sends Strong Bad an e-mail
B) Time passes
C) A Strong Bad Email is released with that person's e-mail in it

The question is, how long is B?

The answer is anywhere between a month and a day. Sometimes they hang on to e-mails for a long time before using it in an sbemail, other times they pick an e-mail and make the cartoon all in the same day.

Don't you mean "The question is, how long is B)?"

I kid. I'm sure that on some of the emails, TBC have to almost work all day.

It takes them one full day to make an email.

Here is the method to get your Strong Bad Email answered:

A) Send Strong Bad an email
B) ???
C) Profit!

Hmmm.... What's Phase 2?!?!?
Did the Underpants Gnomes tell you how to get your email answered?

I really think that blind luck has a lot to do with getting an email answered.

It took nine days for me. And there weren't any emails between sending the email and having it answered, so TBC will hold onto an email if they think it's a good'n. The time can definitely vary. Someone could have sent an email early Sunday morning and see it later Monday if TBC were falling behind that week. The point is that there is no real answer to your question. C'mon, you could have figured that out yourself.
