  • This may have been brought up before but I'm honestly not sure where to look, but figure I could ask you as you are moving pages frequently recently. I tried to move "Doom the Emperor Returns" to "Doom: The Emperor Returns" and it flat out told me it was a page that couldn't be moved? My only guess is because it accidentally counter-acts with the Doom wiki (a completely different Doom, mind you) but I'm not sure. Would you know why this may be, know a way around it, or know a similar instance?

    • Weirdly its "Doom:" that it specifically refuses, but I can't find any other wikis that I search for that page that it redirects me to that wiki so DC:, Resident Evil:, Doctor Who:, Wookieepedia:, Star Wars:. all just take me to a non-existent page under that name on this wiki. We may have to address this with Fandom themselves

    • It is because there is a wiki about Doom the video game. You can watch the redirect if you will manually enter "https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Doom_the_Emperor_Returns" in your browser, let it show you that there is no page on MDP with that name. Then edit the address bar, add the colon after Doom, and hit enter. It will redirect you to the Doom wiki, to their non-existent page called "The Emperor Returns"
      I don't have a fix for this. I think Wikia would have to get involved.

  • While I'm on board with requesting a minimum of explanation for a page move in an article's talk page, is it good to remove the move tag? Doesn't removing the move tag leave the page uncategorized for move, so a move that is warranted but not properly explained has the potential to be forgotten?

Do you have evidence from the comic when someone refers to it as "Symbiote Hive"? Do you know why it was named "Symbiote Imperium" in the first place?

      I can't recall why it was named "Symbiote Imperium" aside from in reference to the "Brood-Symbiote Imperium" being the closest thing to a name there was at the time, but Adour agreed to the suggestion that it be renamed "Hive (Symbiotes) (Earth-616)" to parallel the name layout for Hive (Poisons) (Earth-17952)".

    • Thanks for the discussion. Move is in progress.

  • Hey, I saw you had a list of pages that wouldn't save, I should have gotten them to save now. The Gallery page was an excessive use of the CID template which crashes the page, the volume was CIS for the same reason

  • Hello, may I request a bot's help with renaming Earth-TRN416? It has several hundreds pages and files relates to it, and I was wondering whether User:Artful Bot could perhaps automate the process.

    • Just to let you know, the edits you make on any disambiguation pages are actually Earth-TRN663 not Earth-TRN633, I know they sound similar but the former doesn't need changing.

    • Oh, whoops. Good catch. Thanks.

  • I'm not even going to pretend to understand the how or the why, bu Special:WantedPages has several citizenship categories which do not exist on there respective pages and just touching the page removes them. its over 32,000 pages so I cannot do it myself. Maybe they'll go away on their own but if the bot could be use that would be great

    • Sure, works for me.

      Yeah, those are still some odd things.

    • Okay, all Template: Reality Appearances should be done for real now.

  • Hi, Captain Good brought up here the valid point that "Place of dissolution" would be a more appropriate term to use in the organization and team templates instead of "Place of defunction."

    I figure it'd be enough to simply change the text to be displayed in the infobox, but a proper implementation would require to also change the name of the template's field as it appears in the code to be used in pages. Is there any chance we could use the bot to replace all instances in "PlaceOfDefunction" to "PlaceOfDissolution" in every page that uses either the template or organization template to complement the change to the template itself?

    Thank you.

  • There are dozens of comics that include quotation marks around the story title (example here). These are redundant as the comics and volume templates already generate them. Can your bot remove them?

      Loading editor
    • Sure thing.

      Just to clarify, you want the change to be from this:
      | StoryTitle1 = "Banished to Outer Space"

      to this:
      | StoryTitle1 = Banished to Outer Space

    • Yeah just like that.

    • Work is in progress. It is tricky, though because RegEx isn't exactly set up to handle full find-and-replace. I have done some full titles and several years, but I am having to take it slowly so I don't make some incorrect changes.

  • Patsy and Hedy Vol 1 is causing a script error because each issue needs |Image = Patsy and Hedy Vol 1 X.jpg added. Is this something the bot could run or because X is different each time this wouldn't work?

  • [1] Could The bot be run to touch all the pages here, I changed the template to alter the link, but the pages won't depopulate this until they are touched

      Loading editor
    • Yep, that's an easy one. Already running it.

    • Done, although there are a handful of titles that will not Publish, either with the bot or manually. Not sure what is going on there.

    • Thanks,I fixed those. The problem is that for some reason long volumes stop loading and time the server out, Harasar found the workaround but it hasn't been implemented across all pages because we have so many volumes. It's also not something that can be automated or tracked
