Shouldn't the Pickles comic strip get an entry in the United Media Comics template? (Unfortunately, I don't know the rules for editing templates! And I don't want to hurt what's currently there.)

Note also these points: (i) the Wikipedia entry for Pickles incorrectly references the wrong syndicate's Wikipedia template.

Should point to United Media's.

(ii) there is inconsistency in the titling of Wikipedia articles about comic strips; some tagged as (comic) and others as (comic strip) ...

should be standardized one way or the other.

(iii) United Media (on web at comics.com) recently made major changes to their URL scheme.

For example http://www.comics.com/wash/pickles/index.html is now replaced by
http://comics.com/pickles/ .  So every Wikipedia article for a comic strip in the
comics.com family now needs that site's external link edited, if one appears.


There are a lot of popular or famous comics missing. pluma (talk) 22:09, 16 August 2011 (UTC)
