This is the thread to use if you feel that the page image itself is good but the caption needs help.

If you think that both the image and the caption are poor, please make a thread in Image Pickin' for the page, and we'll work on the image and caption both at the same time.

As with other TRS and IP threads, please state your reasons and make your case in your first post. Don't make the other posters spend time trying to pry it out of you.

The Face of the Sun uses the Latin American "Sun of May" icon (as implied by its "Sol de Mayo" filename) but is neither potholed to anything about this, nor does its caption refer and/or pothole to this. In fact, the caption even refers to the Raisin Bran logo, and it's easy to think that's what it's from if you haven't actually looked at a box of Raisin Bran in a while and don't think to check the filename.

I'd say pull the caption regardless of replacement, and find a valid source, (ie. not Wikipedia) explaining the Sun of May, to which to pothole either the image or any caption we come up with.

EDIT: Also, the caption for Idea Bulb has nothing to do with the image.

EDIT again: Hilariously Abusive Childhood's caption could also use a note about how it's supposed to be "well," not "good." You can pothole it to Comically Missing the Point as well, I just figure tropers could use the reminder.

Crowner's hooked for Distant Duet.
"It's almost like you're here with me" is running away with it. 5 points in the lead, 4 points in the green; the others are in the red.

The new caption's up on Distant Duet, and a new crowner's hooked for You Cloned Hitler!.

Are captions allowed to have spoiler tags in them? Because Otherwords added a caption to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon that contains a spoiler tag.

I don't think there's a hard rule against it, but it should be discouraged.
Definitely not a weirdo
I thought that fell under the whole no spoiler tags above the example line rule, but I could be wrong. I know it's come up once before. I think it was Angsty Surviving Twin, but I'm not certain.

[up] Good point...probably need to redo that caption to get rid of the spoiler, then.
I went ahead and removed the spoiler in the caption on Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon since other than that, it's a fine caption.

There's an option missing in the crowner: "Presumably, no woman ever adjusted her husband's or boyfriend's tie for him, and no woman ever dropped in and chatted to the barber while her boyfriend or husband was getting a haircut."

[up] It's a bit long for a caption tbh.

The caption on Stupid Crooks was changed a few days ago. I noticed it when went to fix the formatting.

I get that it's a Spongebob quote but it's funnier without the needless pothole. It's also more funny than the previous caption.
[witty saying]
[up] Agree on both points. Edit: Caption change was made by a ban evader, so I'll revert it for now.

I've put up the caption on Conviction by Counterfactual Clue and tagged it.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
