French verb "ignorer"[edit]

In the Counter-Earth section, the quote from the French was mis-translated into English. The French infinitive "ignorer" is what is known as a "faux ami" - a "false friend." It doesn't mean in English what it appears to mean. Rather than "to ignore," it is generally translated as "to be unaware of," or "to be ignorant of." This was changed to more accurately reflect the French.

The List of Stories and Other Publications[edit]

There seems to be some confusion about the number of books in the series, as well as the exact spelling of their names.

For instance, the comic-book “L’ombre d’un homme” only gives its own title as well as other titles of the series written in all caps. The Urbicande Albums Page seems like a reliable source to some extent. Some things remain unclear to me, however, like why it lists “L’enfant penchée” (1996) with -e- and “L’Enfant penchée” (2007) with -E-. The Wikipedia list lacks some titles of the Urbicande listing and vice versa.

Apparently it will require some extra philologic work to put together a complete and accurate list. – Jippe 09:28, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Cites obscures etpv.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Cites obscures etpv.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Wrong (imho) redirecting on albums[edit]

Half of the albums in this article have a blue link to a real article about the album. But the other half are only blue links redirecting to one of the makers: François Schuiten. It gives a false impression in this article these album-articles already exist. Red links or not linking at all will encourage readers more to write articles about these albums. --Sonty567 (talk) 03:50, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

I removed those redirecting links. Sonty567 (talk) 04:07, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
They really need to redirect here and be removed from the footer template. There is nothing wrong with using redirects instead of red links but they need to be used properly. (Emperor (talk) 12:06, 24 September 2009 (UTC))
Still, red links also exist to urge people to create articles. As the other articles have remained for years, it can't be a matter of notability. Back then, I had uploaded all the covers at small sizes under a friend's account, but within three days or so, all covers were deleted where I hadn't written the articles for them yet, while those that had already been implemented into their respective articles by then were not deleted. Still, it frustrated me enough to stop working on it. That's why half the links remained red in the end. A few months down the road, somebody re-directed them all to Schuiten's article. --2003:71:4E3F:3379:79D7:6279:95A6:3AA3 (talk) 01:59, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

The Golden Compass[edit]

If we're including Mars et Avril under Multimedia expansion simply because of the set design by Schuiten being similar to his mise-en-scene in Fever in Urbicand, then we should also include The Golden Compass (2007), another film where Schuiten did the production design and that hence looks much more like an adaptation of his The Road to Armilia from start to finish and smack down to a t than anything like the original book by Pullman. Thoughts? --79.242.222.61 (talk) 19:25, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
