The Webcomics work group has reached one of its goals![edit]

It's been a goal of this project for some time to have 20% of webcomic articles be C-class quality or better. As of this comment, we have reached that goal! It is a tenuous crossing of the line for now, as even one new webcomic article would mean the percentage would go down below 20%. But I think it's achievable to keep the standard above this line.

I'd like to thank everyone who's ever improved a webcomics article. Every piece of work helped to get the quality of this webcomic encyclopedia up to where it is today. HenryCrun15 (talk) 01:10, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

@HenryCrun15: I credit our patron saint Maplestrip with this amazing task (they did so much work to make this happen!!) –MJLTalk 02:45, 2 December 2019 (UTC)
Oh, I am so glad this actually happened! Thank you MJL for the callout. I also decided on these two goals back in February 2016 myself. It took us nearly four years, but we're there now and ready to take on a new longterm challenge. I certainly never would have able to do this on my own! I do feel like this is proof that webcomics can be one of the exceptional subject matters of Wikipedia :) ~Maplestrip/Mable (chat) 10:18, 2 December 2019 (UTC)
I've upped the ante! Let's see if we can get 30% of all articles in our project to C-class or better. This one will probably take us quite a few years, but I believe we will definitely reach it! ~Maplestrip/Mable (chat) 11:13, 6 April 2020 (UTC)

Line Webtoon, Naver Webtoon, and WEBTOON[edit]

This has been an undiscussed issue for years, but since KMWeiland (talk · contribs) moved a few pages and changed over 60 internal links on Wikipedia, I figured this was the right time to actually come to a project-wide consensus on this topic. I am personally definitely not fond of the "WEBTOON" monicker, in part because of Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Trademarks and in part for the personal reason of being uncomfortable with Naver trademarking the word "webtoon" in any capacity. I kinda regret using "Line" back in the day, as I would usually go for the original name of the website ("Naver"). I was curious about what you all think of this though. ~Maplestrip/Mable (chat) 17:38, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
