Guess it no longer is. History editors caught it already.

You are referring to the one in the link below? I do wish Terry would replace the picture with something more appropriate. It's the little things that affect users' perceptions of a site, you know...

Is Katharine Kerr still Katherine over in Literature? (Just thought I'd mention it laugh while I was passing...)

Can we get a fix on the AC/DC category name in Music? It's not AC-DC. The lightning bolt translates as a backslash.

No, there's a technical issue about that one, unfortunately.

If it's the backslash, we've got Sci / Tech as a main category. Could it be that it just needs spacing?

I'm pretty sure Terry tried that - he's taken a couple of stabs at it.

I just noticed a new quiz online from the category - Spider Man, but it should be Spider-Man with a hyphen, like X-Men.

Once categories are online for several years, the system prevents editors from altering the name because it affects things on the back end of the site. I'll look into it a bit later today. I was thinking the same thing earlier.

I don't suppose that there's any fix for the inappropriate picture here?

This is 100% reliant on Terry. We can not do anything until (and if) he sees this.

It's been reported, gracious1. Reporting it over and over again won't make a change come any faster.

agony, any chance of popping in a "hammer and tongs" graphic to that particular category? Might be rather fitting considering the pace at which the human race has been reproducing over the past century. shocked

wink Nothing inappropriate about a bit of good old-fashioned phallic symbolism.

Maybe it could be replaced with a picture of a train going into a tunnel grin

And all of a sudden my suggestion of the "Fantastic Voyage" submarine isn't the worst of them.
