Editorial notes

Needs more sources


I think there needs to be a {{What???}} template. --Idiot numbre 188 (talk) 19:47, 21 January 2011 (UTC)


Do we do literary criticism? No we don't. Let us delete this. Real first name and last initial (talk) 11:59, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
I would be interested in seeing this expanded just to see where the author was going with this. - π 12:14, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
Nowhere, I guess. It has started as a red link in Fun:Andicles Rex.--ZooGuard (talk) 12:22, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

The RW article based on this - 'ways of annoying promoters of woo'/'promoters of pretentious literary criticism' (by subverting their texts)- would also reference the Invisible Pink Unicorn, Last Thursdayism and suchlike. Any ideas for what the page should be? (Playing 'spot the particular example') (talk) 17:41, 24 January 2011 (UTC)

I am interested in seeing where this article was headed as well. However, as it stands now, it's an easy delete. Blue (is useful) 05:50, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Would 'the game' fit under 'literary criticism' or similar? Or wherever 'If the reverse of a statement is nonsense, you are being insulted' (nobody advertises stale fruit, old-fashioned clothes etc) goes. (talk) 18:01, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

The size of the image[edit]

Hello I uploaded an image but it unexpectedly was extremly big. Please correct it. Yassine Mehdi (talk) 15:09, 10 August 2023 (UTC)

@Yassine Mehdi Done. And don't write BC (Before Christ). Write BCE (Before the Common Era). Spud (talk) 15:15, 10 August 2023 (UTC)
@Spud What was the problem when I upload the image? And how did you correct it? — Unsigned, by: Yassine Mehdi / talk / contribs
@Yassine Mehdi Look at what I added to make the picture display as a thumbnail:
[[File:Bust of Aristophanes.jpg|right|thumb|165px|He probably looked something like this.]] Spud (talk) 15:45, 10 August 2023 (UTC)

Must we move this to mainspace?[edit]

Anyway, I don't know how to move pages. If anybody knows, and think that it is apropriated, please do it. — Unsigned, by: Yassine Mehdi / talk / contribs

@Yassine Mehdi I've done it for you. Notice there was a previous article on Aristophanes that got deleted back in 2011. I'm afraid I can't guarantee that the same thing won't happen to this one. The range of our content has expanded a bit since then, so you might be lucky. Spud (talk) 13:10, 23 August 2023 (UTC)
