General Caption Repair Thread:

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.

Nuke the caption, or make the pic the cover art from the Blu Ray instead of the poster; I'm good either way.

The caption for Evil Is Cool is an All-Blue Entry with 6 potholes. Can we clean it up a bit?

The current caption on Spoiler Cover is kinda useless. I'm voting to either pull it or replace it with "*BANG* He's dead; roll credits."

Eclipsed Star removed the caption from Marshmallow Hell as "inappropriate". I kind of agree; on top of being a bit pervy, it assumes the reader is a straight male (or a lesbian/bi/pansexual, but I don't think the writer was thinking of that).

It was apparently added before the last purge of the history...maybe "And now Negi wants a cookie."?

The crowner for Sigil Spam ([up][up]) is still too close to call.

The caption on Et Tu, Brute? just says "Played for laughs.", which doesn't really add anything.

Image itself isn't great either.

The image works for me, but I know the context so I'm biased. The caption is rubbish.

[up] I'm familiar with the webcomic itself, but haven't read it since 2014, so the context is lost on me.

The caption on The Care Bears Movie seems like too much of a Take That!. Back in August, I removed the following caption on Pokémon: The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon for the same reason:

What's the worst way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Pokemon? THIS SPECIAL.
