Why is it named "Codename Werewolf" if the character in question is a hyena? Just curious. --Lynn Onyx 05:47, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

It's because of his powers. Karl Kratt
Which powers? To change into a werewolf? *confuzzled* I don't see them listed in the character description, which is why this confuses me. --Lynn Onyx 08:21, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

I forgot to add the power to change from a humanimal to a human. Karl Kratt

I think the initial question is why is his callsign werewolf if he's a hyena? Why is he not called a werehyena? To answer my own question, I speculate that it is oversimplification. both you and I are men of the military, Karl. We know what oversimplification is all about.--Kendricks Redtail 09:13, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
I guess that could be it, then, since I'm a librul pacifist journalist and I don't get this military stuff. Just hard for me to get my mind around the idea that a guy who can change from a human to a morphic hyena and back again is called Werewolf. But if that's the case, then so be it. We're editing the entry here, not your comic. --Lynn Onyx 09:16, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Never said you were editing my comic. Karl Kratt

You miss my point, I never said you said we're editing your comic. The objection "wait, his name is wrong!" by me is inappropriate for WikiFur, because whether it's right or wrong, the wiki is here to record what is, rather than what should be. I was chasting myself for getting too deeply wrapped up a non-issue. --Lynn Onyx 17:13, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Well, if you want to know, he is called Werewolf because he changes back into a human after Dr. Van Burden attempts to reverse the genetic alteration. His transformation reminds her of a werewolf more than a hyena and she utters it. ~~ Karl Kratt

Listing non-existent issues[edit]

I appreciate that you may be working on future issues, but having a long list of issues which nobody has ever seen makes this feel less like an encyclopedic article and more like your personal to-do list or wishlist. --Lynn Onyx 08:21, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Some of this article reads like a scrapbook. I understand what you're trying to do by providing excerpts and whatnot, but just sum it up in your own words.--Kendricks Redtail 08:48, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

Fixed. Karl Kratt

Correct the Solar Strike Force Files section. Again, box it in if it's a quote. Otherwise give a brief summary of said involvement.--Kendricks Redtail 09:11, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

We frown on blanking articles or removing large pieces of article without explanation. Please explain why you removed what seems to be a large part of your comic.--Kendricks Redtail 05:22, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Because I'm going through some emotional problems and I don't know if I will continue to work on the series. --hyenafur

That's certainly a shame. It sounded like a great story. Don't let one setback derail you. It happens to everyone, especially new authors. Regroup and persevere and good things might happen. Prime example: In 1948, an aspiring amateur cartoonist Charles Schulz tried to have his comic Li'l Folks syndicated through the Newspaper Enterprise Association. Schulz would have been an independent contractor for the syndicate, unheard of in the 1940s, but the deal fell through. Li'l Folks was dropped in 1949. The next year, Schulz approached the United Feature Syndicate with his best strips from Li'l Folks, and Peanuts made its first appearance on October 2, 1950. The strip became one of the most popular comic strips of all time.

Don't give up.--Kendricks Redtail 00:54, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
