"As the final effects of the Crisis took hold, Hunter discovered that he was now a man out of time without a home. No one remembered that he had existed. Even his old time traveling teammates had no memory of the Pre-Crisis world. Rip himself had been replaced with a new Post-Crisis doppelganger, also a master of time travel."
The Earth-One Rip Hunter continued to exist after Crisis because of some cosmic fluke, probably related to time travel -- even though there was a New Earth Rip Hunter around to replace him!
But you miss the point that I made about the Note. Here are the full notes... the bit in bold is the one contradictory.
This version of Rip Hunter, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions. Despite that, he still survived, because he was traveling through time when the original Multiverse collapsed.
This full note seems obsolete (in regards to later storylines). And the bit in bold seem contradictory (if someone survives, then is not erased from existence).
Yes, it is contradictory, because the first two sentences are from the template, and can't be rewritten or changed. So the third sentence is trying to explain that the first two sentences aren't really accurate.
As to when Rip Hunter (New Earth) joined the Linear Men, and why he didn't meet Rip Hunter (Earth-One), and all of that, I do not know. I think you are going to have to read the actual comics, obviously our synopses aren't detailed enough to make everything clear. Also, as you mentioned in your first post, it is possible that we have some Rip Hunter appearances mislabeled.

There's a lot of comics featuring Rip Hunter characters. :)
In the meantime, I've already edited Linear Men article, and placed a sentence and its ref about Rip Hunter joining the team. The problem is that it causes a contradiction in the text, but I'm not doing anything more, as I lack the info, and also, the sentence I added has a ref. It is the first sentence that needs citation.
I only contacted you, as you had contributed significantly to Ripley Hunter (Earth-One) in January 26, 2016.
Someday, someone might untie the contradiction. That's my hope.
If you read Time Masters Vol 1, you'll see that Vandal Savage being Cheops is perfectly possible. It is very likely that Savage assumed his role after Khufu was killed by Hath-Seth. Also, maybe Khufu and Queops are different people in the DC Universe.
A whole bunch of G.Age comics that until quite recently were available online at CBP have vanished. Like 3/4 of all issues of Captain Marvel Adventures. Which is weird; why wouldn't it be all of them, or none of them? But it's most of them, AND there's a note there, asking their contributors to NOT upload those issues. U got any idea what's up with that? Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 11:18, April 17, 2019 (UTC)
We had a thread about it on Discussions a while back, but can't find it. Short version: DC.
A lot of Golden Age Captain Marvel stories were pulled down at the request of DC's IP lawyers who said it was no longer public domain. Presumably because with the success of the movie, they want to offer it at DC Universe.
So according to DC IP lawyers, some-but-not-all of the G.A.C.M. stories were never in the public domain? Dudn't sound right. Did they try to take down all of those stories, but partially fail? Or did their argument only apply to some of them but not all of them? Why, innuddawoids, are there still SOME G.A.C.M. stories still up?
DC asked Comic Book Plus to remove certain issues because those issues are not in the public domain (per DC). We don't know what DC's legal argument was (because Comic Book Plus is not sharing the letter DC sent them), but apparently Comic Book Plus found the argument convincing.
If I had to guess, I would guess that DC found paperwork showing that Fawcett did renew the copyright on those particular issues. If your next question is "Why did Fawcett renew some issues and not others, seemingly at random?" I cannot answer that, but I can totally believe that it happened, because Fawcett's comics division was shut down and I can buy that renewing the copyrights was a low priority.
Would famous artists and people like Neil Armstrong be qualified to make a profile on? I’ve already made one for Andy Warhol, but since you removed his appearance from the movie, I would like to know if there’s something wrong about it.
Sorry, I didn't mean to undo Andy Warhol, as the page already existed. I'll fix that.
For the rest, see the link I referred to (which you may already have done). And you may be right, Neil Armstrong and Leonid Brezhnev and a few others may qualify for pages under #3 (Major Historical Figure), but not all of them...
Personally, I'd say no to them because they are too recent (who knows if rock & roll will even be around in 100 years?), but since we didn't come up with a definition for Major Historical Figure yet, I won't object if you make redlinks for them. (Someone else may, but not me.)
What I'm gonna ask might date a bit, but on the issue Adventure Comics #218, you added this a few years ago:
This issue of Adventure Comics is considered by some comic indexers to be the first issue to regularly feature the Green Arrow of Earth-One. Other indexers place the dividing line between Earth-Two and Earth-One elsewhere. The DC Comics Database has selected thus issue.
Do you, by any chance, remember the source of the indexers using #218 as a reference ?
No. I just added that note because Adventure Comics #218 was already where we were making the split, so I figured it needed a note, but because I didn't know the exact reasons I left the note vague. The decision to use that issue as the first Earth-One issue was made in 2011, long before I was here.
