There is no need to work up a temper over this, especially when my authority overrides yours. Headlines must have a verb; the versions you and Unown Lord supplied were incorrect. Please refrain from moving the article again. --Argy 11:57, 14 March 2006 (CST)

Well, fine, if you insist on that article title ... But I don't believe you that article titles need a verb. That's stupid, especially when the tagline has a verb. This really sounds just like your personal style of writing or whatever. And that's a thing that annoys me about Bulbanews; people correct things in article texts which are perfectly fine and correct just because they don't like how it is expressed or because they don't like the style of how it is written while there is no real mistake. (I don't mean grammatical or spelling errors which should be corrected, of course.) I think people should stop changing such things if it's not a real mistake. Or at least use the talk page first. -__- --nYoo 11:45, 15 March 2006 (CST)
My "personal style of writing"? Absolutely not. It's part of news style, which is accepted and used by news organizations worldwide. Any corrections to stories I make are to make them conform to news style. The reasons headlines must have verbs is because there are many readers who only have time to read the headlines; thus, they must tell more-or-less the point of the story. "New CoroCoro Comic scans April 2006" doesn't tell what is in the scans, so people have to take time to find out when they could have just read the headline. --Argy 09:32, 21 March 2006 (CST)
I have to agree. The original headline is not very headline-like. I do not quite agree that headlines must have a verb, but certainly they could be more descriptive than 'New CoroCoro Comic scans April 2006' - unless you're planning to make a monthly column out of it. - 振霖T 02:04, 17 March 2006 (CST)

Most months are abbreviated in news style. "January" becomes "Jan." Also, "on" is unnecessary in front of dates in most cases. --Argy 18:46, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

But months are written out without abbreviations almost everywhere else on site. I don't see why this "news style" thing has to be followed that strictly. The "on" seemed necessary to me because there was an "in" almost immediately after it in that sentence. --nYoo 19:16, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
