RemovedEdit

In "Requiem for Methuselah", it is not clear whether Flint actually lived on Centauri VII and been known there as Taranullus. If so, then Taranullus was certainly a Human, and Centauri VII might have been an Earth colony. At least some of the artwork in Flint's collection was done by himself in various Human identities: Brahms, da Vinci, etc.

Fanciful speculation. --LauraCC (talk) 21:09, March 9, 2016 (UTC)

Hmm, not sure I agree about that last part. It just seems like a valuable bit of context to point out that several of the other artists in Flint's collection were revealed to have been Flint himself. I'm going to try put in a new note, that gives the info without the speculation. If that's not ok, just remove it again. -- Capricorn (talk) 15:26, March 10, 2016 (UTC)

Unfortunately, without the speculation, the note seems like a non sequitur. I mean, you can figure it out if you think about it, but it might go over a casual reader's head. Perhaps the "Aliases of Flint" template could be altered or a new template made to list additionally those items he possessed and their creators. --LauraCC (talk) 17:25, March 10, 2016 (UTC)

I was going for giving the reader additional information that I felt they might want to know to fully understand the context, but stopping short from speculating. Again, if you're uncomfortable with the modified note feel absolutely free to remove it again. Your choice as the person who initially identified the problem :) -- Capricorn (talk) 17:56, March 10, 2016 (UTC)

I'd like to fix it without removing but am uncertain how. Your thoughts on my alternate suggestion? --LauraCC (talk) 17:58, March 10, 2016 (UTC)

If making the link in a background note is a problem, then including it in a template just seems way worse yet. -- Capricorn (talk) 21:03, March 10, 2016 (UTC)

All right. I wish we had some other input from a third party on this. --LauraCC (talk) 21:05, March 10, 2016 (UTC)
