[edit] Comics that aren't comics

Project Flood and What If 1 are articles for images that aren't even the central point of blog posts. I was already hesitant to let Radiation slide because of how problematic it was in terms of organization, but these two aren't even the main points of their respective blog posts. We're not covering every vaguely obscure image under the xkcd domain now. Davidy²²[talk] 06:57, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Congrats!

Congratulations on your milestone! Nk22 (talk) 16:57, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you --Forrest (talk)13:23, 02 May 2015 (UTC)
But... are you only making edits to gain fame (vanity is a word mentioned in another topic below), or are you actually improving the pages? The pun category should not have been created in my opinion (for reasons mentioned by others below). Your own page seems to point in the direction that you are more interested in making many edits, than in if the edits are needed. I have not checked up on you edits in general, so I hope they are great! And if they are good work, just don't let your milestones be the mark for what is good for this page. --Kynde (talk) 18:58, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Puns

Your new puns category seems somewhat useful, but could you use some discretion and not add just any comic to the category? I fail to see how comics like tar and Turing Test have any wordplay to them. Davidy²²[talk] 18:13, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

I was going to query how useful the category is, as there are puns littered throughout XKCD. To me, its like having a category for 'Jokes'. I think it has been populated by doing a search for Pun, and adding those results. I clicked through to a few of the comics, and there was little to no relevance to puns in my eyes. --Pudder (talk) 09:01, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
I also vote for deleting this category--Kynde (talk) 18:58, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
I would do it, but it would leave behind a colossal amount of broken category links behind that I'm not in a mood to clean up myself. Davidy²²[talk] 00:41, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Vanity Templates

Why did you make four templates for the sole purpose of having a random page link on your userpage? And what justifies their existence over existing random page function? Davidy²²[talk] 08:44, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

I have blanked the pages Template:Rand, Template:Random number, Template:Random Comic, Template:Random Page, and Template:Mod for you to delete. I was using those pages for testing purposes and have moved the content to display directly on my userpage. --Forrest (talk)09:05, 04 May 2015 (UTC)
