  • Please, remember whenever you add new information to properly reference it every single time.

    If your source is a comic, TV episode, movie, etc., you just need to put between {{r| and }} the issue/episode/movie in which the events you just described happened. Like this:

    Tony Stark became Iron Man.{{r|Tales of Suspense Vol 1 39}}

    If your source is a web site, refer to this page on how to cite web pages in articles.

    Remember that having the information we display referenced is what makes us a reliable source of knowledge, so even though it wasn't always the policy here on the Marvel Database, it's now considered extremely important (see also Citing Sources).

    Thanks!

    • If it's something like height and weight from a handbook, then you need to add that field, for example:

      | CharRef                 = {{c|Spider-Geddon Handbook Vol 1 1}}

      after the UnusualFeatures field.

    • I checked a few other pages and was under the impression we didn't cite the infobox height/weight/ect. from the Handbooks- but will correct. Missed the CharRef field all together, my apologies.

    • It's important to cite everything so that it can more easily be peer reviewed. Thanks for understanding and keep up the excellent work. ^_^

  • Please, whenever you upload a new image, be sure to follow these three simple steps:

    1) Be sure the image name acts in accordance with our site's Naming Conventions.

    2) Once the image is uploaded, please don't forget licensing.

    • If you uploaded it through the Special:Upload function, make use of the "Licensing (Required)" dropdown feature before clicking "Upload File," and choose the apropriate type of licensing. "A single panel of a character," "A regular comic book cover" and "Movie screenshot" are some of the most common options.
    • If you uploaded it through the "Add a photo to this gallery" function on the bottom of galleries, or you didn't select any licensing option in the dropdown feature of Special:Upload, you'll have to add the licensing manually. Go to the uploaded image and click "Edit," you'll see two rows of buttons to insert templates or format functions. Click on the button that has a single polaroid photograph on it (found in the bottom row), and the template will be added. Be sure to fill in the "License" field with the respective license. Most common licenses are "Comic Single Panel," "Comic Cover," "TV Screenshot" and "Movie Screenshot." If the licensing you added is not valid, the image will still appear as unlicensed.

    3) Whether the image template with licensing has been added automatically or has been inserted manually on the image, please be sure to fill in the respective fields there are, including "Source," "Universe," "Subject#," etc. to help sort it out.

    Thanks!

  • Hey, in case you didn't know Naming conventions for files also includes the source in the name. Can I ask that for future uploads could you include this.

    Thanks

  • Please, remember whenever you create a new page for a character/team/whatever to not only create said page, but also a Images Category, Appearances Category and Gallery Page.

    Also, whenever you add an article about an alternate version of a character, please be sure to list it in the disambiguation page for the character.

    And when you upload a new image, be sure it follows our site's Naming Conventions, and add the license and source by editing the image's page and filling the fields in template.

    Thanks!
