Hi! Thanks again for all the good work you're doing on the Wiki, but:

When it comes to the two pages you've created… are you sure those are the titles? Maybe that's what's on the cover, but, like, the page for ''[[Only a Poor Old Man]]'' isn't titled ''[[Uncle Scrooge in Only a Poor Old Man]]''. Apologies for it not being written down yet (you may have noticed I'm doing a complete overhaul and rewrite of our Policies these days), but the title we care about is the one printed on the first page of the story, not what's used in advertising, or even on the cover of the book it's printed on. IDW books often give a different title in the table of contents than they do on the story's first page (i.e.'' [[The Time Vortex]]'', called ''The Vortex of Time'' in the ToC), and we go with the first-page version. Same thing.

Hi! Thanks again for all the good work you're doing on the Wiki, but: As I said in my editing rationale, Disney Presents is just a label for hardcover editions of some Great Parodies, not something original. We can't start having pages that track every collected edition of this and that, that's what INDUCKS is for. So I don't think it warrants a page. 

When it comes to the two pages you've created… are you sure those are the titles? Maybe that's what's on the cover, but, like, the page for Only a Poor Old Man isn't titled Uncle Scrooge in Only a Poor Old Man. Apologies for it not being written down yet (you may have noticed I'm doing a complete overhaul and rewrite of our Policies these days), but the title we care about is the one printed on the first page of the story, not what's used in advertising, or even on the cover of the book it's printed on. IDW books often give a different title in the table of contents than they do on the story's first page (i.e. The Time Vortex, called The Vortex of Time in the ToC), and we go with the first-page version. Same thing. 

Also, Brady (or any other translator) is not to be credited in the Infobox in the “Writer” field. Never in a million years. The page is about the story in general, not any particular American printing thereof. Even if we cared particularly about the English printing (and we don't really, except inasmuch as we give more specific info on its reprints and use its terminlogy due to this Wiki being in English; you'll notice that where a localization and the original version of it conflict, we go with the original), there are several cases of stories being translated multiple times by separate people. 

As always, localizers are to be credited in the part of the Behind the scenes section that details English-language printings of the story; for example, “The story was first printed in English in 2056 in the Canadian Disney Comics Magazine #32, where it was localized by John Smith”. 

On a totally unrelated note, I just saw that Beasts vs Birds section on your user page. Sounds neat!
