@x35: you are the second user it two days to call him an elephant!!! elephants have trunks...

you shouldn't have jumped the gun, I had already written out the thread text before the site launched. Plus my thread combines two threads so we can cut back on pinned threads in E&T.

@pikahyper:

Because you just copy the names from comixology or somewhere else, and they almost always capitalize everything. It's become a pet peeve of mine to rename volumes after you. Prepositions are supposed to be written in lowercase, grrr.

@billy_batson: prepositions sure but titles are supposed to use title case, I type them that way unless I know the creator wanted to use lowercase.

This is what I meant, we are a community, you should have let others have a go at the big name threads.

@razzatazz: why? why shouldn't I get a chance to have some pinned threads for once? you get to add yours whenever you like and their importance can be disputed, my contribution to this site is just as important so I deserve a chance to do things for the community if I want to. I've been working my ass off the past two weeks for this site and I really don't need anyone putting down the few liberties I take.

Bigger pinned threads are almost always made by mods or staff, they are important threads and I see no reason why I regular user should be making them.

Edited to add:

An argument can also be made that since I was the one doing the majority of the posting and moderating in those threads that I earned the right to create their successors.

@billy_batson: I've started going your way a lot of the time, I finally gave in to X35's requests for renaming story arcs using lowercase, it makes my OCD go crazy but I still do it.

Olympian's "Alias" should be changed to, why of course Olympian as the section is listed by his real name.

@reefermadness: his real name is listed as an alias because the real name field isn't searchable and Olympian doesn't need to be an alias cause he already shows up in search under Olympian.

@guttridgeb: done

If you look at Air Raid I try to keep them in order but order doesn't really matter I suppose. In order based on transaltion would be;

Triple Changer would be followed by; トリプルチェンジャー, Toripuru Chenjā, Triplaváltozók, Trójzmienny

Triplebot would be followed by; トリプルボット, Toripurubotto

And Tripletron would be followed by; トリプルトロン, Toripurutoron
