  • We're curious if there is an official source for this term? We don't cover fanon here on the Marvel Database, and either way it certainly wasn't an Event as it is presented to be, so any insight would be much appreciated.

    • By the way I want to make a page for the alien dragon that Silver Surfer fought in volume three but don't know what to call it? Space Dragon? Which is what the natives called it. Space Dragon (Silver Surfer)?

    • Esparza3368 wrote: Ok. The second Kree-Skull War is a "historical event". Can I recreate it (still have it saved) and if so do I call it Kree-Skull War as it says in the cover of one of the Silver Surfer issues? If so how to distinguish it from the Avengers Kree-Skull War?

      Only if the in-universe event has been named. That's how things have been done so far.

  • Please avoid linking to disambiguation pages instead of specific articles. Thanks.

    • I did not realize that I did that. Sorry. Usually I link it to specific articles. Please, let me know where so I can fix it.

  • 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!

    • As you can see here, I've renamed and licensed your recent upload, which you can use an example to emulate on all future uploads.

    • Ok, I see what I made wrong. My apologies. Uh, how does one go fixing their mistake regarding the name of the page? As in created one called "Black Dragon Tong" and the moment I created that page I realized I forgot to add (Earth-616) in the title. Looked everywhere I can think of and I can't find any tool or help page that says how I can fix that by renaming it. There isn't even something out there that I can see that would let me delete the page and recreate it with the right name.

    • As for the licensing, I upload the image. Click on the drop down menu for licensing, and select the appropriate one. In the image I loaded for "Black Dragon Tong", I selected the one that said comic panel of something else. Then I selected the "add" option. Which is what I have been doing before. Have I been doing them all wrong or did I simply miss a step in the recent uploaded image you mentioned?

      Here's the thread which explains how to properly tag articles that need to be renamed.

      After you add an image, then you just need to "Edit" the image like I did in the prior example for you to fill out the fields for ImageType, Description, Source, Universe, Subject(s), Penciler(s), Inker(s), Colourist(s), and/or Letter(s) depending upon whether or not the image includes dialogue, that way the image can legally be displayed on the site.

      I hadn't realized you'd already uploaded so many unlicensed images either, so when you can please be sure to do go back and take care of all of your prior uploads so that they don't have to be deleted. Thanks.

  • Please, keep in mind that items/locations/races/vehicles pages only require a differentiation in their names if they share them with something else. For more details, read our Naming Conventions. Thanks.

  • Please familiarize yourself with the Marvel Database:Naming Conventions. Articles focusing on organizations require a reality designation. Also, everything written in an article's history must include proper citation so that the comics the information came from can be peer reviewed. Thanks.

  • 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!

    • My apologies. Where the mistakes on the Skrull Empire page made by me? If so I am truly sorry for making extra work for you, it was not my intention.

    • You forgot to pipe your links. Meaning instead of looking like this:

      X-Men

      they looked like this:

      X-Men (Earth-616)
