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.

Oh, and going back to the Fighting Spirit, how about:

"When spirited fight gets too literal..."

"The best soulution to any street fight."

"Always bring a ghost fighter to a fistfight."

Any of these good?

On June 16th, someone changed the caption on Blue and Orange Morality from:

Ye who walk with the Path of Bacon shall be blessed with dinner. Yet ye who follow the Way of Necktie shall be dressed for dinner.
to
Ye who walk with the Path of Bacon shall be given breakfast. Yet ye who follow the Way of Necktie shall be put in appropriate attire.
I like the old one better, since it rhymes and is rather funny. The pot holes where there to clarify. The new one loses a lot of the original's charm.

[down]Dressed and blessed.

Agree, but the old one doesn't rhyme, it repeats the same word: "dinner".

Easy solution: "shall be with dinner blessed"; "shall be for dinner dressed".

Slightly odd grammar, admittedly, but oddly poetic, and it makes the rhyme more explicit.

Ugh, the caption on the page pic for Rosario Vampire consists entirely of bluetext in one giant sinkhole. Suggestions?

It helps to link to provide a link ro to the page. Do that by writing it as a Wiki Word. Rosarioto Vampire. That said, the links can all go. Here's the current caption, for reference:


And can we please do something about captions appearing blue in forum? It makes it impossible to what's a link without putting the mouse over it.

Well, to me, they show in slightly different colour, but yeah not very good.

Sep 17th 2014 at 8:25:56 PM

^^ I have "highlight links" checked in my forum profile... links are always underlined (both forum and wiki), so I can easily see them, and as a side bonus I can easily see Chained Sink Holes. :P

Can I remove the caption in Bishie Sparkle? It seems to have that "make fun of Twilight" thing going on.

I agree with removing the Bishie Sparkle caption.

It's gone. So, do we need to replace it with something, or does it work well enough without any?

It's fine without one, but I wouldn't mind one if it were funny.I removed all the blue from Rosarioto Vampire. If anyone wants to restore some of the links in a reasonable fashion, be my guest. Any other thoughts on Blue and Orange Morality?

Yeah, go with 56.

Say, anyone got any thought for the caption for Fighting Spirit? The current one has to go, no doubt.
