|*Artsie's* Pegasus - The Great Winged One - a personal work by [Artsieladie].|
2006-12-12 [Artsieladie]: There's more than one myth surrounding the origin of the Pegasus. There's one that states that the Pegasus grew from the blood that seeped into the ground from Medusa, the snake-haired Gorgon's head. The goddess, Minerva tamed him and gave him to the Muses of Mt. Helicon. The Muses held a song contest and the music was so great and powerful, Mount Helicon started to grow toward heaven. The god, Poseidon, unhappy about this, asked Pegasus to strike the mountain with his hoof to cease the growing of the mountain. Pegasus struck it with his hoof and the Hippocrene fountain began to flow. From that day forward, its waters have inspired many poets. :P
*point of interest* > The Pegasus image has been found on Greek coins dating back to around 360 B.C.. :) Maybe...I should post this on another (different) page? :P
2006-12-12 [xido]: I love all of the pegasus pictures! And the info here is so much more than when it began! I must faint in overwhelming joy!
All this from our little marathon on ECM Pegasus...
2006-12-13 [xido]: I like the new View Diff feature. That outlines it pretty nicely.... I must admit I have not been able to really play with the format features of the site since all these recent upgrades....
And I love not having a limit to my comments' length.

2006-12-23 [Hedda]: The View Diff feature is years old...
Comments about my edit:
1) Do not put unrelated images or text on top! That's bad for search engines who become confused about what the page is about, and of course it's the same for real people. The page must start with "pegasus", the image and the short description. Bonus-stuff else where or later!
2) I gave [Zab] credit via a wikimg-link. Works fine, I think. Maybe I should have linked to another page?
3) "wikis" was used wrong. A "wiki" is a set of wiki-pages. That is: Elftown only have one wiki. And people reading here are not that interested in if the links go to wiki-pages or not, just what kind of information the links go to.
2006-12-23 [Hedda]: Another note: This page should be as good as possible all the time, so there should be an image on top, even if we'll change it when the image-competit
2006-12-23 [xido]: Okay. 'Tis fine with me. You know it better than I do.
"The View Diff feature is years old..." Color me naive.
2007-01-14 [Teufelsweib]: can I change the mainstreet poll now, since this one seems to be clear enough? :)
2007-01-14 [Hedda]: Yes.
2007-01-27 [Artsieladie]: When I Googled "Pegasus", I went through 20 pages & stopped, for I didn't find anything associated to Elftown. When I Googled "Art Pegasus", this page, Pegasus, came up on the 2nd page, 7th listing from the top. :P
2007-01-28 [xido]: *ponders*
I am having similar issues with my keyword use... But I figured it was just me doing something messed up....
2007-01-28 [Artsieladie]: I'm not a Googling person, or a net surfer by nature, but I was looking for something & decided to see how I'd fair at finding ET's Pegasus info on the net. So, I just mentioned here what I came up with. :P
2007-01-28 [SilverFire]: If you try 'Pegasus creature' it comes up on the second page, second entry. 'Pegasus mythical' I gave up trying to find (I don't have as much patience as [Artsieladie]). For 'Pegasus mythical creature' ET's link is on the fourth page, near the bottom.
2007-01-28 [Artsieladie]: I wish I understood better how to bring a site up on the first page, but this may be a $94,000 question! :P
2007-02-10 [xido]: I'd like to add this banner to this page:
How would I do that like it is done with the other Pegasus banner (that includes [Zab]'s Pegasus Image entry)? I see you posted a certain format for it... I am not sure how that works, though.... Is that like templating a wikipage?
2007-02-10 [Hedda]: Like this?
2007-02-14 [xido]: Exactly. ;)
2007-02-22 [xido]: I really like that one, Silvie. It's a bit longer than the one that's up now, but it is complete and concise. I will add it.
I also added keywords (!!! oops), and a small portion about Pegasus in D&D terms. ;)
2007-02-22 [SilverFire]: Still not on any of the first ten pages.
2007-02-22 [Hedda]: I moved (and corrected) the extra info in the beginning to another page, as it belongs there and not on top of a page trying to describe "Pegasus".
2007-02-25 [xido]: If you Google search within Elftown, it is the first on the page.
I see what you mean, Hedda. The winner info... Where did you move it?
2007-03-02 [Artsieladie]: Google search using "Pegasus pictures" - one of the link choices at bottom of Google page under "Searches related to" --->3rd page, about in the middle, it says for Elftown: Excellent resource for Greek mythological references to Pegasus, as well as cool pictures and artifacts depicting 'Pegasos'. Very informative and organized! ... Under the "Pegasus Mythology" choice, it comes up on the 4th page, closer to the bottom. A search typed in as "Pegasus Art", Elftown comes up on the FIRST page, the last listing. Kewl! ...And under search for "Pegasus Poetry", FIRST page, listed about in the middle. "Pegasus Fantasy Art", page 2, 9th listing. I think it's improving in the Google Searches. :D
2007-10-29 [SilverFire]: Just deleted a duplicate word.
2007-12-15 [SilverFire]: Hope no one minds me, I found a short description of the birth of Pegasus in Hesiod's Theogony, which made me wonder whether there had been some misinterpretat
2007-12-15 [SilverFire]: May I also suggest this layout for the references/bib
Author, Year. Title of book. Edition (only include this if not the first edition). Place of publication: Publisher.
2007-12-15 [iippo]: After the main text there is a list of books that people have used as reference, and it's not a very clean bibliography-l
2007-12-15 [SilverFire]: The description that I added to the text, "he account given in Hesiod's Theogony is that Pegasus sprang from Medusa's neck along with Chrysaor, and that he was so named because he was born beside the waters of Oceanus - the river which encircled the world."
2008-01-01 [Artsieladie]: Well, I must say I was delighted to see my art on the first page of a Google search (images): "Pegasus Art" & of course, linked to Elftown!!! I went on to "Pegasus Poetry", somehow left it as an images' search, & lo & behold, lookie what I discovered:
Someone put my Pegasus within there image to go with their poem! I'm trying to contact the site about this. If they want to give me credit for my art & link it back to Elftown, this is something I can live with, especially if it gives Elftown a plug. The page it's on is:
Gee, I'm flattered & upset all at the same time.
The person could have asked permission, b/c my Pegasus pages are set for non members to comment.
2008-01-24 [Artsieladie]: Update: The owner of the site, http://www.lai
2013-10-31 [jogos-de-carros]: This page remembers me about Saint Seiya - Knights of the Zodiac. Good times...
