Caption Discussion/Repair Thread : Im A Humanitarian

Go To

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 caption under the image for Fairy Companion seems like a pointless Take That! to the character.

[up][up] Yeah, that's too Take That-y.

[up] I'd zap it entirely and move the comic in the link into the Other Media example list.

The caption for NightmareFuel.Puss In Boots The Last Wish was unilaterally changed a couple of hours ago. I reverted it, sent the user a notifier, and added an IP tag since the one it got changed to was a spoiler.

At the end of everything, hold onto anything.

I have three suggestions for a caption for Film.Blazing Saddles:

  • Mel Brooks and the West! Together for the last time!
  • Mel Brooks' comic saga of cowboys and imbeciles.
  • Never give a saga an even break!

I personally like the last one.

Any thoughts on a possible caption for ComicBook.Gambit King Of Thieves?

Captions for work pages are optional and aren't needed. If you want one, it'd be up to you. I recommend checking if there's a Tagline or an awesome quote.

Gregzilla (probably no relation to the animator) changed the caption on Contract on the Hitman from:

to:

Not pictured: the person on the balcony aiming at the third person.

Sent an “ignored comment” notifier, but I think I like the current better, even though I literally suggested the old one.

And then... the funniest thing happened.

I'd like the caption for Unusual User Interface to specify what the device is. I happened to know, but others probably don't. Maybe make it "This is a keyboard."?

This is just a little thing, but technically the caption for the image on Hostility on the Set has a pair of chained Sinkholes ("These" is potholed to Herzog's Creator/ page, "guys" to Kinski's). I wondered if perhaps

"Klaus Kinski has a slight disagreement with Werner Herzog on the set of Cobra Verde. Unsurprisingly, it was the last film they made together."

would be an acceptable alternative? (If that's too long, the second sentence can probably be dropped, or at most included as a note.)

[up]I'm leaning on your suggestion more than the current one, or at least the very least the Administrivia.Chained Sinkhole needs to go.

Sexy Priest's caption has two potholes to the same trope, not divided by anything. Should we remove one of the potholes?

[up]I'd cut one pothole to Hypocritical Humor and I agree that having two links to the same trope like that is unneeded.

They're divided by the period, actually. It's just someone trying to not technically have an all-blue caption.
