Alright, anybody going to change text in Elder God and Outer God section into table? L-Zwei (talk) 04:55, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

I'll be tackling the rest of the article in a few days, as it still needs a major clean up. Regards PurpleHeartEditor (talk) 12:46, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Chaat of Table of Great Old Ones is not Chaat. I'm Japanease, and I've read Ken Asamatsu' story in Japanease. This God is Cthaat. And this name is from Brian Lumley's "Cthaat Aquadingen". 26th August 2012 by Zephyros — Preceding unsigned comment added by 211.9.60.26 (talk) 01:08, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

If, as the article says, Lovecraft named as "Great Old Ones" the following, "Azathoth, Cthulhu, Ghatanothoa, Shub-Niggurath, Yog-Sothoth, Nyarlathotep and Yig", then shouldn't those entries all appear in the "Table of Great Old Ones"? Or am I missing something? Dballing (talk) 10:36, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

It is to my understanding that all of those, with the exceptions of the big C, Yig and Ghatanotha, are not even Great Old Ones. That sentence should be changed. But even afterwords, you are correct; the applicable ones need to be added to the table. --Dragnilar (talk) 14:37, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

I think that there might be mistakes…[edit]

I am by no means an expert, I've only read Lovecraft's work, and not even all of them, but there appears to be at least one (I think huge) mistake:

The entry for Cthulhu lists "DV, PS4" as the relevant works; absolutely no mention is made of "The Call of Cthulhu" (the story Cthulhu first appeared in), "PS4" is given as where he first appeared, according to Cthulhu Mythos alphanumeric reference code and bibliography PS4 is the abbreviation for "The Plague of St. James Infirmary" by Ken Asamatsu written in 2005!

That's just the one I caught, I have no idea how many others there might be.97.124.90.99 (talk) 23:23, 8 June 2013 (UTC)

WHY[edit]

Why does the table in this article still have a column for "References" containing a huge variety of abbreviations, the definitions of which are contained in an article that no longer exists? In fact, if you click on the References link in the column heading, it just redirects circularly back to the article you are currently reading. This is worse than useless to readers of the wiki--it is confusing and frustrating. Can we delete this column and delete these references from ALL the Cthulhu articles, since the definitions of these references no longer exist?

I realize that more than a year ago, some bozo had the idea that we should just magically "merge" the contents of the deleted article into this one, but no one seems willing or able or to this. Since it has been so long, it's better just to remove these references altogether.--Jerk of Thrones (talk) 09:52, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

... Why were the pages removed in the first place? And having been removed, why wasn't the information contained within them immediately added to this page? The whole issue seems troublesome. Devilot (talk) 05:59, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
