Vermont You reverted back to "Guy Standing sitting in 2012" personally, I think "Guy Standing in 2012" is simpler to understand, it seems confusing to me now which version to use, because that his last name is "standing" --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:06, 5 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Oh wait, I think I know what the revert was for. It was for something else, it was to remove "Guy Standing and sitting in 2012" which makes sense why you did the revert, but I still think it should be "Guy Standing in 2012" --Tsugaru Let's Talk! :) 🍁 02:09, 5 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
From my view, at least, "Guy Standing sitting..." should remain. It's a bit of a grammatical joke, as his name is Standing, and the picture shows him sitting. Though it is not the complete simplest way of describing the picture, "Guy Standing sitting" is a phrase that most, if not all, English language learners could understand. Provided that they recognize the name is a proper noun and the "sitting" is a verb, and the contrast between standing and sitting, they could benefit from it.

I see that it is changed back to just "Guy Sitting" no trying to start a dispute, but should a decision be made so the title isn't always changed? --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 21:39, 22 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
As the person who last reverted the caption, I'll chip in my thoughts: Wikipedia is not supposed to impress the readers. As funny as "Guy Standing sitting" is, it doesn't add anything useful to the caption. It's pretty obvious from the image that he is sitting. "Guy standing in 2012" would be a better caption. Another alternative would be to replace the image with one where he's not sitting. — *Fehufangą✉ Talk page 22:39, 22 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
