Cavewoman[edit]

You cannot simply wholesale revert to a version that was riddled with grammatical errors, as well as errors in formatting and citation, plus WP:TONE, WP:DATED and Manual of Style errors. Deliberately restoring errors is a form of vandalism. And may I add that in addition to all these violations of guidelines and MOS, the writing contained numerous redundancies, poor wording, verbosity and other problems. What you created was a badly written fan page, not an encyclopedia article.

I'd be happy to collaborate with you if you feel there are still errors such as those noted above. Otherwise, we can put the two versions up to a Request for Comment from other editors and see which is the preferred. --Tenebrae (talk) 20:12, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

It's quite all right — our goals are exactly the same ... making the best article possible. I appreciate your saying that, as an obvious fan, you found my edits appropriate once you looked at them. I do understand there are different levels of skill among editors, and my response was largely due to surprise, since you've been editing here since 2005.
If you've got a cite for Frank Cho and the other guy, by all means, add it somewhere appropriate. I would only suggest that the lead is for a summary of the major points, and that if an artist only did one or two covers that this might only be worth mentioning in the "Publication history" section. Honestly, though, I'm not sure that would be a significant fact: There are probably a hundred artists who have each done at least one cover of, say, The Amazing Spider-Man, and we don't list them all — we just mention the artists who did the bulk of them. Although you could make a case that someone like Cho, who is a mainstream-publisher artist, did work for an alternative comic and that this is notable for that reason. It all comes down to context.
If I can offer help or if you ever just want to ask a question about anything, I will be completely glad to do what I can. With regards, --Tenebrae (talk) 00:15, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Playmates[edit]

That's an easy one: When you make changes, just add a citation with a link to where that info came from. If the site it comes from is subscription-only, just add the curly brackets and the word   {{subscription}}   after the citation. This will create the footnote text "(subscription required)".

I'd be glad to help you do a test run on one of the Playmates. Let's find just one thing, where you do the edit and add a citation. If you don't know how to do a citation, you can look at WP:CITE or you can ask me to show you. --Tenebrae (talk) 01:02, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Balin. I haven't been on Wikipedia much lately due to the holidays and other things. I'll be glad to take at look at Sunstone. Did the citation directions above help at all? Happy New Year to you. --Tenebrae (talk) 23:16, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:1459335-cavewoman hunt.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:1459335-cavewoman hunt.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 15:55, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for December 21[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Cavewoman, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Regeneration. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
