What's up with the last(2004-06-02) edit?
The edit by 184.108.40.206 not only seemed to have a highly incongruent writing style (which I could, and was sorely tempted to, fix), but its contents seem completely out of place. What do other Wikipedians think? Should we just fix it, or do we move the affected section elsewhere, or revert that edit entirely? —cky 08:49, 2004 Jun 12 (UTC)
- To start with, I fixed typos.--Patrick 11:41, 12 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Thanks for that. Now we (being Wikipedians who care enough) just need to decide if it's in the Right Place. I'm too much of a newcomer to Wikipedia to make such a call without outside consultation, which is exactly what I'm soliciting here. :-) —cky 01:04, 13 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Fixed: Virgil's Omnia vincit Amor quote incorrectly attributed to Ovid. Also, as much as I love Ovid, it is best to refer to Amor's place in Elegiac love poetry as a genre rather than Ovid's in particular. CaveatLector 08:31, 30 December 2005 (UTC)
Cupid and Psyche
It's good to mention Cupid and Psyche (maybe), but Apuleius can't really be called the first attestation. CaveatLector 19:57, 13 January 2006 (UTC) He did a lot of things —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:38, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Cupid in pop culture
Nothing about Cupid in modern culture? Shouldn't there be a blurb about Cupid on Valentine's cards, in cartoons shooting random people with love arrows, etc.?
- Notation of the song "Stupid Cupid" should be changed from Mandy Moore to the original performer.
I think that "Cupid" as a Holiday Character should have it's own article. amyanda 07:08, 24 February 2007 (UTC)amyanda2000
- I have started the article about Cupid (holiday character) and appreciate any efforts to elaborate or improve it. It's far from perfect, but it's a start. I'd really love it if someone could put up an illustration. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Amyanda2000 (talk • contribs) 19:59, 28 February 2007 (UTC).amyanda 20:01, 28 February 2007 (UTC)amyanda2000
- someone has suggested merging the two cupid articles, but I don't think that the mythical cupid belongs under the holiday character heading or vice versa. I think that there is plenty of information about both, enough to merrit seperate articles and also enough to make more than a brief mention of each in the other's article somewhat silly and unballanced. Cupid of mythology is a serious figure, while the cupid of our modern holiday is whymsical. I really think that they are seperate beings and should be treated seperatly. amyanda 06:13, 22 March 2007 (UTC)amyanda2000
Cupid is often featured with his eyes blindfolded. I'm not sure if this is meant to symbolize the "blindness" of love? If someone knows for sure, it would be nice to put it in the article.
- Actually, that is inaccurate. Cupid is very rarely depicted as 'blindfolded' in this fashion. CaveatLector 23:25, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
Cupid known as Wilson Chong in China
Is this correct? I can't find any corroroboration of this. Thanks.
- Cupid & Penis**
In many paintings cupid is depicted with a small penis, shouldn't this be added to the article of artwork?
- Most or all classic Greek and Roman art also depicted this. --PixieDragon (talk) 04:10, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
Pronoun Reference unclear in paragraph uner Cupid's Lineage
"Additionally, Cupid's power was supposed to be even greater than his over the dead in Hades, the creatures of the sea and the gods in Olympus."
Does "his" refer to Erebus' power over the dead or is a sentence missing?
I came to this page searching for the facial feature known as Cupid's Bow. There is no mention of it, but it's on the Cuipd disambiguation page. 18.104.22.168 01:18, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
I second that. 22.214.171.124 13:40, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
I suggest an external link section with reference to Cupid.com, an online dating site. I am associated with that site so am not linking it myself.

- Thanks for bringing it to the talk page. Unfortunately, I don't see how it would fit under external links guidlines, as it does not have strong relevance to the article other than the name. --TeaDrinker 16:07, 18 October 2007 (UTC)
Article to be Expanded
When you search CUPID on Google this is the first thing you see, but it is very short. Because of this I will conduct reaserch and complete this article with all your sugestions, from cupid and psyche, to cupid pop culture. If thousands are to see this article for valentines day, it must be good. WikiWriter21 (talk) 18:05, 2 February 2009 (UTC)
Mars or Mercury
- As far as I know Cupid's is often not mentioned, but maybe someone could provide a good citation to say otherwise. --PixieDragon (talk) 04:17, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
Cupid and Pedophilia?
- Maybe because Cupid is Roman, and not Greek? The Greek counterpart is Eros. Cynwolfe (talk) 16:53, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
