I thought even in the update forum, the editors decide on the piccy not the author?

Usually it's the original picture that stays, as there aren't any others, and no two Edited Entries should have the same picture. At least if I recall correctly. smiley - smiley

That's why I thought the picture should be changed, so as it's not the same as the 'My Vision of h2g2' Entry, as I mentioned earlier smiley - winkeye

And yes, the editor's do have the final say, and if the picture remains the same, then Jimster needs to add an 'Illustrated by' Credit to the Entry (or I can do it in Editing). But I still feel that the pic needs to be altered so there are not two same-likenesses of Douglas in the Official Edited Guide (be they 'Help Pages' or EG Entries), hence the option to alter it to the Black & White pic, which some people regard as a good one, or the colour one that is presently on the Updated Entry.

I think it boils down to an Editorial decision, so Jim - what do you want? What was there (although it's a copy), the Black and White, or what's on the Entry at present?

"First paragraph FootNote 'in his own words.' Was that not about the 'trilogy in five parts' ?

I can not find anything about the recent radio installments. "

The footnote is in regards to the Entry that is linked through to the Hitchhiker's (written by Douglas), not the the paragraph itself.

The recent radio installments are referred to in the linked Entry about the History of the Hitchhiker's Entry, and it is inferred in the section regarding what the Hitchiker's became eg; radio, tv, towel etc.

smiley - ok

Just a thought, any chance this might get the nod for either May 11 or Towel Day (May 25)? smiley - grovel

I think you've done a great job with this smiley - ok

Just one teeny tiny insanely pedantic thing ... where you introduce quotations run on from the previous sentence (blockquotes especially) - should be a colon rather than a semi-colon.

Insanely pedantic, as I say smiley - blush

Been through this with a fine-toothed comb. Missed out on May 11 (and the 7 year anniversary), but I've added a link to Towel Day on May 25. Any chance of an offical up date then? smiley - grovel

The blob's going back to what it was, by the way. It was created for that entry.

But we can now count this as an official Update. smiley - bubbly
