  • Hey KalKent! I'm Marcus, and I’m the Fandom Wiki Manager assigned to this great wiki. I am here to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff (not to take over). If you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, etc., please contact me on my message wa. I've already contacted a couple admins yesterday and will be contacting a few more today. If you have any questions about my role, don't hesitate to contact me. There will be a blog explaining more about wiki managers in the near future as well.

  • Why don’t you guys post the movie plots

    • We could just copy and paste plot synopsis from Wikipedia, but that would be plagiarizing. And it's not as easy summarizing the plot of a movie, as it is summarizing of a comic book or even a tv episode, since that's usually more draining of ones time.

  • People i know said that the new Marvel-Anime are either bonkers or just kiddy, but i think they are pretty awesome (with Future Avengers looking better then Disk Wars). Im not the greatest expert regarding Marvel, neither am i familiar with rules here, so could someone Update the Page of Earth TRN-642? Im sad to see not much of that Series, and i don't want to screw up

    • I've not seen anything of it either (apart from the intro and the fight scene of Hulk and Captain Marvel against Ares), since as far as I know there is no legal way for me to watch through said show (with or without subtitles), so I can't help you with that. I mainly created a page for the show and the reality, since I felt like people were glossing over the fact said show actually existed.

  • Hello. I need an advice on how to treat versions of the characters that appear inside Framework on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. I don't think it's right to treat them as their regular MCU versions as it is done now - not only did they all live different lives, there are mere virtual recreations and not physical people. For example Sunil Bakshi (Earth-199999) technically never appeared in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 19: the actor was the same, but the character was different.

    MCU wiki gives all of those characters separate pages named like "Sunil Bakshi (Framework)", which I don't think is right for this wiki either, as those aren't proper counterparts from an alternate universe. I was thinking maybe pushing them all to the Framework/Residents page, which would allow to both keep all Framework stuff in one place and also link to them from disambiguation pages. I also think this should only be done only for Framework recreations, while the main characters who were plugged in and actually lived those lives should not be included.

    What do you think: should I bring more people in to this discussion, or am I allowed to proceed with the above? HBK123 (talk) 13:55, March 27, 2019 (UTC)

    • I was hoping for a more elegant name that could be easily linked to from disambiguation pages. What about simply Character Index/Framework, then listing that as subsection of Earth-199999 on the Index main page? HBK123 (talk) 15:36, March 27, 2019 (UTC)

  • Is it okay to start adding Captain Marvel (film) spoilers yet? The movie has been out in most of the countries for almost 2 days now. Will I get banned for adding spoilers before proper U.S. release? HBK123 (talk) 12:08, March 7, 2019 (UTC)

      Loading editor
    • You won't get banned for adding any, since this database is meant to be international. As long as it's gotten a wide release in whatever area, then it's considered release and open to be updated. If one wants to avoid spoilers until one has seen the movie, then one should stop visiting this site for a while. We used this also back when MCU movies came out 1 week before the US.

    • BTW, I unlocked the page for Carol Danvers 199999, in case you were planning on creating a page for it.

      And also a tip: For movie characters, in the notes section, please add who the actor is that portrays the character in said movie.

      For example: [[wikipedia:Brie Larson|Brie Larson]] portrays Captain Marvel in the film ''[[Captain Marvel (film)|Captain Marvel]]''

    • Permission to turn Stan Lee (Earth-199999) into a character article instead of a redirect? Stan Lee is credited as playing Stan Lee in Captain Marvel (film). HBK123 (talk) 20:13, March 15, 2019 (UTC)

    • Sure. We kind did a similar thing for the TRN414 version.

  • Please stop deleting my contributions and making changes that are not based in facts. In addition to being one of the most published comics historians around with various awards to my credits, I am the Director of the Wallace Wood Estate, co-author of the Eisner Award recognized Wood biography, Wally's World and am well recognized as the World's leading authority on Wallace Wood. All of my changes are based on many decades of research, 1st person experience, interviews (conducted by me and others), and my relationships with the related parties.

    • Sorry for chiming in, but I think I need to address an important issue, one that concerns two pieces of trivia that you added to the article of Daredevil #5. Since we are on the Internet, it's easy to impersonate people and hard to verify one's claimed identity. It goes against our best interests to present ourselves as a trustworthy source of information to let somebody claiming to be a certain person make unconventional changes and take their credibility at face value.

      Additionally, it's in the nature of wikis to value the concept of a community over individual contributors. Because of this, for a casual reader it won't be a renowned historian who presented a certain piece of information, it'll be the Marvel Database itself, as if our site was a hive-mind. Not even experienced users can know who added what to a page without doing some extra work that involves checking a page's edit history. This is particularly tiresome if it's a page that a lot of people contribute to.

      Because of these reasons, a contributor's own accounts are not enough to be considered infallible, which is why our site's guidelines require all sources of information need to be cited. Circling this back to the added pieces of trivia that I mentioned: while they are very interesting, I'm afraid that they will have to be removed unless you can provide a link to some reliable external source. It can be your own site, or some interview, or a book.

      I hope that you don't take this the wrong way and understand that we're not trying to shun you or doubt your credentials, it's just the way our site has to process information since the Marvel Database is by nature a tertiary source of information like all wikis. Wikipedia themselves explain it very well in their Expert editors essay: "In Wikipedia, there are no listed authors. The only authority for content, is what sources say (...) it doesn't matter who you are or who you say you are - what matters is the quality of the sources you bring (...)"

    • All this has been addressed on various occasions including in the Eisner Award recognized Wally's World biography and the official Wallace Wood Estate facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TheWallaceWoodEstate/ I'm also attaching a screen capture of one such conversation in which Wood expert JDS and Kirby expert Evanier are in agreement that DD#5 cover is all Wood

    • Re Romita recreating the stolen Wood original art for DD #5 cover, John told me that himself. I may have included it in our book
      Romita Sketchbook

      Romita Sketchbook by J. David Spurlock & John Romita. Foreword by Stan Lee

    • In that case, it will be appreciated if you can go back to Daredevil #5 and add the sources for those claims using our citation guidelines. In the case of the book, it'll be better if you can consult it to be 100% sure that the stolen original art is mentioned there.

  • THIS professor was never named in the Sentry comics. I suggest to simply rename the page "The Professor". Naming it "Professor Cornelius" would be a mistake because Cornelius Worth (another Sentry ally) is a completely different character.

  • Hi. I see that some TV episode pages have a still picture as the main image, while others feature a short trailer video instead. Which one is the proper and more preferrable way to do it? Would be it be appropriate for me to swap one for another so that episodes have more recognizeable images in category lists and such? HBK123 (talk) 10:22, December 27, 2018 (UTC)

    • I try to not to put my personal theories on wiki pages, having been burned by it in another fandom. Unless something is stated pretty clearly in the source, sometimes it's better not to put into at all than add speculative stuff that can then spread to other places.

    • Yeah it's always better to just wait (for this case assuming it's getting renewed). Like I remember when season 1 ended, one user added to Karolina and Jonah's pages that they were Majesdinians. But with the creative liberties they've gone with the show compared to the source material, I figured they were going with something else, so I just held it off until then.
