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 on Zachary Taylor is just "F***ing cherries." (since he supposedly died from eating contaminated cherries). Per the "no prudishness" part of No Lewdness, No Prudishness, I don't believe swear words should be censored with asterisks unless they're bleeped out in the quote.

[up] I'd just zap it altogether, it's not adding anything to the page.

Removed the Zachary Taylor caption. TheTropper changed the image on Super Mario Bros. to the Japanese promotional artwork to be consistent with Super Mario Bros. 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3 (and then I replaced it with a borderless version), and while I like the new image, the caption doesn't make much sense with the new image.

The crowner for Sigil Spam is still too close to call.

Is the caption on LJN Toys, "Sorry. No pot of gold in this logo." too much of a Take That!?

[up] Possibly...wouldn't hurt my feelings to cut it.

I've closed the Sigil Spam crowner and put the new caption up.

Does anyone else think the caption on Franchise.Marvel Cinematic Universe would look cleaner without the names? The author included them in reference to a Missing Trailer Scene, but since the scene doesn't occur in a movie, I expect readers of the future to associate the quote with only Nick Fury.

Marshmallow Hell's caption was removed last month by Eclipsed Star. I don't recall a discussion on the subject.

I can take it or leave it, but feel like the removal should've been discussed. Thoughts?

Sent an image change notifier to the offending troper.

The Watchmaker's caption is kinda meaningless to anyone that's never read Watchmen.

About Marshmallow Hell, I don't see how the current caption is funny, and I thought the previous one was perfectly good.

The note in the caption on Catherine used to pothole "Katherine and Catherine" to Betty and Veronica, but since the image now has Rin between them, Katherine and Catherine's names are awkwardly potholed to Betty and Veronica separately so Rin can be potholed to Third-Option Love Interest. Should the note be removed, or at least that part of it?

The caption on Implausible Hair Color seems too niche or unrelated to the photo.
