Re: Ideas... uhhh yeah. Edit

Hey Dude!

1. The only reason the reprint thing really works is that there is a specific field filled out if the issue has reprints (ReprintOf#). The use of this part in the appearances category, every appearance in that whole comic comes up as a reprint appearance. So if the first story is a reprint, it doesn't matter about any of the other stories, they all get put down as a reprint. If the first story isn't a reprint, none of them get put down as a reprint. It's not a perfect system, but it's one of the few things I could swing without fundamentally changing how we do appearances (the Cast Template), and you know how sensitive that thing is with page load times.

I do think it's possible to go another route, possibly using templates like 1st to surround the character's name, like {{1st|Peter Parker (Earth-616)|Spider-Man}}. I think I tried to set this up before, but I don't remember what the outcome was.

2. The transclusion thing is much more doable, but it requires a decent amount of DPL. Then again, since these are individual comic pages, and likely pages that aren't viewed very often, I don't think the load times would be too bad, but it's hard to say. In theory, you could identify which comic is the reprint, and which story of that comic, and the template could pull ALL the information from the other comic's page. Not just the appearances, but all the information pertinent to that story.

So get to work testing! ;)

Just Curious.. Edit

Just curious as to why you deleted all of my work on Captain America: Hail Hydra. Well, you didn't really delete it. It's just not shown now... The only reason I can think of is the release date. I got my copy in December and went ahead a did some quick edit entries. Let me know. Maybe there is something I did wrong??

Main Page - Santa Hats! Plus Layout... Edit

Sure, I'll work on that today.

No, the layout stuff isn't working for me either.

My internet is giving me problems, so short message. :(

Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 18:51, January 15, 2011 (UTC)

Theme Designer seems to be broken, and won't even let me revert the theme to before the holidays. I changed the css (MediaWiki:Wikia.css) back, and uploaded the image, so even if I'm not around, you can try to change it again later. :|
Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 19:59, January 15, 2011 (UTC)
Yea, I'll have all that going at the same time once everyone agrees on the change in the forums. :)

JavascriptEdit

It definitely started yesterday, about mid-day, I believe. Not sure which Javascript option you mean, though. I don't see a general "Javascript" option, but I see a few that require Javascript. I have one enabled, but not a couple of others (neither seem like something I had selected before). --GrnMarvl14 18:24, January 16, 2011 (UTC)

Taskmaster Image Edit

You better delete it. honostly I just googled and used the picture that seemed best for the article since I couldn't find any other artwork for the article.

Layout Edit

Yes and no. You can create and edit a layout, but not all of the things you put into it actually come up. I don't know if it's a matter of too many selection possibilities or if I'm putting the code in wrong, but it's not working out completely. Feel free to mess with it, as far as I can tell only admins can use it. :)

Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 05:26, January 19, 2011 (UTC)

I understand, I will do everything possible to improve thanks

Thank you for your statement, now I will do everything according to the rules! But I have two questions, here the characters in the Marvel database has no list of villains, how can I create this list? You're the editor? You could unlock the dc Database me please, because I blocked an editor for a few mistakes, he did not let me argue. --(Fosforos malone 01:18, January 23, 2011 (UTC)).Fosforos malone

Help please. Edit

Hi. I just joined but there are some errors. First, if you see on Marvel's homepage, they have the ratings also and Cable and Magneto are severly underated. Cable is stated to have intellect on par with Richards and Magneto has superhuman durability strenght and he is a super genius also. Please have ratings to reflect this. - The preceding unsigned comment was added by ViperBeam (talk • contribs).


Appearances

I dont have a problem with the manual way but I guess I can get use to doing the new way. --Mutant God 18:29, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

thanks for the edit message. Edit

Hey thanks for the new info on the edits. this will slow me down until the bots correct the old catagories cause i often will copy a catagory and then try to cover all of the missing comic appearences of that catagory (items is the easiest like web shooters and cap's sheild) i also will at times open random comics and then edit them (alot of the old comics are missing a ton of catagories so its been easy to get my ranking. Despite this setback i will continue my quest to edit every day until i get all of the days in a row edits and the catagories are fully listed (ill leave the synposis till later cause it takes a lot more time that id rather use reading some of the hundreds of comics i own i havent read yet so i can add more catagories. i do have a question in regards to the site however, when i am editing late at night once every couple of days for the past 2 weeks a message has come up that the site is on a back up and when i refresh i am able to edit once more. if you could tell me why this happens that would be appreciated. also when will there be new polls cause the ones on the main page are getting old (im glad the santa hats are gone now).

--FORCEFLOW 05:12, January 25, 2011 (UTC)


I don't understand what you are talking about when you say i should tag pictures. Thanks.

Hey sorry about the lack of image tags. Thanks for the message, I didn't know I was creating an issue. I will be sure to be more thorough with my future uploads, and I'm going to try to go back and add all the necessary tags to my older posts sometime this weekend.


Inferno52387 15:07, January 28, 2011 (UTC) Inferno52387

the worst thing is that I already know that stuff about replacement text in blog posts, but for some reason, I can't make it work sometimes. I'll get better at this, I promise. For now, my latest post is there, isn't it? You said you deleted it but I see it on the homepage, am I right?

Comic Covers Edit

Ah crap.. I now remember Nate telling me that.. From now on, I shall remember, especially with fixing the images. Thanks for the reminder! --Johnnybravo44 (talk) 22:56, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

Don't worry, thanks. It's better that you tell me about this stuff, because I want to learn how to make this work. Anyway, I notice that my latest post has comments blocked, why is that, and how can I change it?

Need your assistance, por favor Edit

I'm upgrading my Thor site, and as part of my content, I can now install MediaWiki on my site. I was playing around with installing some templates there, and it seems like it doesn't recognize that it's even code. Would you mind taking a look and see if I'm missing something that needs to be installed? I'd greatly appreciate it.

Cool, that's what I was thinking. I appreciate you taking a look. Eetmi 03:37, February 3, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, another question. It looks like I've got everything installed, BUT it's not recognizing #explode. Is that something different than ParserFunctions or would it be a newer version of it? Eetmi 15:17, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

Reply Edit

Hey there,

I replied on my user page so that we can all be on the same page. :)

Changing my signature Edit

When i asked how to change my signature, you didn't understand, so by that i mean change the thing i sign off with (you know, the sguilly line icon). Not my username.

Lady of the Lake/Earth-Young Arthur Edit

So I realize this is an unorthadox request, but I've been going through and cleaning up disambig pages. And I came across Lady of the Lake, and you were the only editor on the page. I was wondering if you possibly remembered about Earth-Young Arthur, whihc is listed on the page, and were it appeared, or really anything about it. I would like to categorize it into the TRN universes if it hasn;t already been named. --Spencerz 18:40, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks. I'll be sure to edit the Lady of the lake page to reflect that, --Spencerz 23:17, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

Comic Images Wha-huh? Edit

I thought we had super cool code which picked it up automatically...bummer. I guess I can leave it in :(

Artful Dodger 05:20, February 9, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia! I knew there was something sinister afoot!

Main Page Edit

Hey -- I'm trying to sort out the problems with your main page slider that you contacted us about. So I'm gonna play with the main page a bit. I will put it back promptly though. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 02:24, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I'll send you an email also, but the problem wasn't actually the slider. It was the Twitter widget you were using, which was breaking all the JS on the page, and the slider needs JS. For now we've replaced it with the standard Wikia twitter feed, which isn't very exciting, but works. -- Wendy (talk)@fandom 03:27, February 11, 2011 (UTC)

Oh ok i didnt knew it i think they look cool and just upload it Sorry If I broke a rule.

Its Ok thanks!

Appreciated Edit

Life saver! Thanks.

Licensing Edit

I thought I had solved that. Let me be more careful, and make sure they all have tgheir licensing completed. Sorry. --Pijuyo2

About images. Edit

Well then, how can I contribute to this wiki? Where are all the images that are already here taken from?

Scion of Balance 19:35, February 13, 2011 (UTC)

Remove Page (Please Clean up my Mess....) Edit

Created Collins (Baxter Builing) (Earth-616) because I could not find the character with a search, but the character is already there because Walter Collins (Earth-616) is the actual guy. Again, I couldn't find him on a search or Fantastic Four Vol 1 pages links that I knew.

Well, anyway I went and created this page.... LIKE AN IDIOT!

I notice I can't find the link to remove pages,,, Again probably becaue I tried to remove half the site a few years ago... I digress. But could you please correct my error and remove Collins (Baxter Builing) (Earth-616) from the site.

Appreciate all your advice and help over the years.

Batroc 16:02, February 14, 2011 (UTC)

thanks for the the awards, man Edit

that was cool, thanks for answering my question.

Deletion Tags Edit

Would you be at all offended if I removed the deletion tags you placed on Earth-TRN011 and Earth-TRN020? They are tagged for moves from the Punisher: War Zone film and the home universe of Cat Pryde of the Exiles, respectively, and my fear is that once the bot moves those pages over, the delete tag will go thru and delete them. --Spencerz 00:30, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

In that case, it may be helpful to just delete them so the pages move. Those two were only created because users on the site, who were unaware of those realities being reserved, created other TRN universes in their place.

And on a completly unrelated note, I seem to recall you being part of the admins who tweek the code on the site. And I would like to note that we have reached our Alternate Reality limit on Wolverine's disambig page. Apparently, the code only allows for up to 96 "Alternate" slots (not counting TV, Movies, Video Games, Others or Relateds), and Wolvie is now up to 97. --00:45, February 20, 2011 (UTC)

Thank You Edit

Hi, Thank you for telling me that and who are these vandals who are using my IP address? May I please have their names because I do not want to be framed for something I did not do. I have been already in the same problem several times and eventually charged for no reason. And if this ever happens againg I want my account to be deleted premanently because I do not want this kind of problem. :(

Hi again, Thank You for the information and can I at least have the User Names of the vandals??

Hi, How come you are not able to share that information with me considering that I want to help? also what did these vandals do specifically?

Disambig Layout Edit

Those are pretty great ideas! It would be really cool to get some DPL to fill in these pages for us, especially if we can figure out how to make it have the right format.

The portal template, which the disambiguation template runs on, was originally designed so that we could link the images of characters to their respective pages. Since MediaWiki does that for us now, there's a significant amount of coding which could be deleted from the portal template and still achieve the same effect.

Basically, I need to do some experiments with DPL to see what's possible and what's horrible, and pretty much redesign the disambiguation template from the ground up.

It interested me before that we could use wikia's new gallery setup to do a similar job, but I'm not sure I like having images of all different sizes show up in a disambiguation page.

Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 22:14, March 9, 2011 (UTC)

Ah, it took me several hours to remember that DPL doesn't add pages that don't exist. So any version of the character that does not currently have a page on the site wouldn't get a spot on the list.
It's also difficult to sort these out. It's much harder to pull out the movie and TV versions from the comic versions using DPL, because DPL doesn't really know the difference.
Check out my test page for a wolverine re-do. It's neat that the alternates are ordered by page size, so the most popular ones are on top, but between the sorting and the characters without pages, it's quite a bit shorter. Not to mention that we're looking at possibly using a gallery instead of the Portal template.
Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 00:07, March 10, 2011 (UTC)
Almost 3 weeks later, I finally was able to review all the feedback you and Spencerz left about this.
I'm not fully convinced a DPL page will work. I'm going to try to write a new template that uses the same inputs as the current one, but results in a gallery-style result which will fix the loading issue. If the differently-sized pictures situation becomes too off-putting for the 130+ versions of Wolverine featured on Wolverine, we can work on a modified version of what we have now (likely to not have rounded corners).
We'll see how much of this I can get done working at home only now (yikes) as well as only after 7 on weeknights, haha. Plus fitting in Video Reviews and actually reading comics sometimes!

Hello. Edit

Hey there, and thanks for your sincere greeting!! First off, is there any pages that you can think of off hand that need major re-working done to them because of their layout scheme, lack of formal information and the respective? Secondly, I want to let you know now that I am a huge "stickler" on powers and abilities of characters and how they're displayed wherein as you will soon learn, I will frequently be adding, editing and proof reading powers of my favorite characters of Marvel.

marvel.com question Edit

so i was on marvel.com looking at the spider island event pictures and i noticed that marvel has their own wiki on the site in the community section. it has some good aspects like detailed information but also lacks many character bios, apperances, and pictures. this site is more accessable and helpful for researching but i was wondering if we can copy their info (i havent done this) since its a wiki.

Forums problems Edit

So nothing seems to be working for me on the forums. This.. could just be my crappy laptop, but I'd like to think it isn't. I'm not allowed to look at any posts, anyone's user pages, or anything (except the index page I can view tauntingly). When I try to click on anything else it pops to some page saying General Error .. and a bit more. Not sure what the problem is, but if you know or can crack the code, could you let me know? I'm a little in and out right now, but I'll get back as soon as I can.. Thanks. --Johnnybravo44 (talk) 17:59, April 3, 2011 (UTC)

I was afraid of that.. But on here? Well, some of the buttons above me while editing have disappeared, but only like half. I figured they'd come back eventually. Perhaps not, then? So.. that. But that's all I can think of. --Johnnybravo44 (talk) 23:49, April 3, 2011 (UTC)

Alert! Please read than respond back. Edit

Dear M1shawhan,

A user here by the name of REEPUCE uploaded two pictures or photos onto this wikibase one of which is extremely inappropriate which is called "Cock glans and foreskin.jpg" and the other is called "Ben UltimateAlien.png" and it has absolutely no relevance to Marvel whatsoever. So, please delete them and check you spam filter bot checker because, if someone (a user in this case) was able to successfully upload such a picture than there is something wrong with it.

Thanks,

ImperiexSeed, 8:11 PM, April 3rd 2011


Glitch? Edit

Hi, I don't know whether this is a problem on the site or a problem at my end, but I'm having problems editing. When I try to add a page, the site specific stuff on the toolbar (insert character template, insert team template, insert comic template Etc) all seems to have disappeared-all I can bring up is the basic wikia toolbar, which obviously means I can't add a comic without manually copying huge chunks of code. Thing is, the custom toolbar is still showing up on the DC Database and also on the British Comics one; I just can't see it on here. First noticed it yesterday. I tried going onto the forums to see if it was something anyone else had noticed, but the forums appear to have been down all day. Unless it's my computer? Can you clarify? Tony ingram 14:05, April 3, 2011 (UTC)

3 answers... Edit

1. I'll keep the blogs around for as long as others still respond! :D 2. A good magician never reveals his tricks. ;) 3. Yes.. I still am having forum troubles. :( --Johnnybravo44 (talk) 21:29, April 6, 2011 (UTC)

What happened to all the templates? Edit

I got back to editing the Spaceknights and realized that the buttons on top with all the templates are not there any more. What's up with this? I tried to search for things like "Minor Character Template" and have not found anything. As I am still quite amateurish at this I can use all the help you can give. WizArtist 22:54, April 7, 2011 (UTC)


I tried it, cleared cache etc. The template buttons are still missing. Any suggestions?

Avengers EMH Edit

oh okay --Mutant God 17:05, April 10, 2011 (UTC)

Forums troubles still.. Edit

Hey I'm not sure what's going on, but I've still been checking in on the forums every other day. Now I can't eve ngo to the site at all. Not sure if this helps, but I'm at my local McDonald's, using their internet, and it won't even work with that. So it's not just my bad connection I guess. Any words from Jamie? --Johnnybravo44 (talk) 22:49, April 10, 2011 (UTC)

OK. Well, my whole network is down at my house, so I've just been chilling at a McDonalds every now and then using their internet the past few days.. ;) If nothing else for email, and to keep up my badge of day counting.. mwuahaha --Johnnybravo44 (talk) 21:19, April 11, 2011 (UTC)

Template:Faster Disambiguation Edit

Check it out, and see if it's any faster for you on the long pages like Spidey and Wolverine. It's hard for me to tell at this point. ;)

Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 23:05, April 11, 2011 (UTC)

No, I'm not sure why it's capping out. It didn't do that when I tested it at work...
All the images came up on Spider-Man. Was it just the preview that didn't work?
Are you getting on IRC tonight?
Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 01:40, April 12, 2011 (UTC)
Ah, sorry, I can't get on tonight, family dinner. I talked it over with Artful and Grn yesterday though, and we didn't really reach a decision.
So I found the issue you were referring to, and created two new disambiguation page styles for speed testing. There's the old Template:Disambiguation, then Template:Faster Disambiguation, and finally Template:Fastest Disambiguation.
I was expecting Fastest to actually be fastest, but as far as I can tell, it's not. It's possible that my testing methods aren't regulated well enough to really count, so I'd like to put it to the users by way of the community message.
I'd like to put up a page where people can time how fast each version took them to save and edit, and then use all that data to average the times and decide which version is fastest and which version everyone likes the best.
What do you think about that?
Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 21:56, April 12, 2011 (UTC)
Ah the forums, nice to see them back. I wasn't thinking of an actual add-on, just people using their own methods, like counting, or using a clock or watch. It looks like all three templates are equally as slow for me. Edit is about 20 seconds and Save is about 40 on Spider-Man's page for all three types.
Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 22:22, April 12, 2011 (UTC)


Hey dude,
Awhile back, you mentioned a bit about Semantics, and I hadn't gotten back to the message until now.
So the coding of the Faster and Fastest Disambiguation pages aren't that different from the original Disambiguation setup, but there are less template calls and less code in each call, so there isn't any DPL in either version, which is good. For Faster, I basically took a look at the existing code in Disambiguation, and cut back wherever I possibly could. Then for Fastest, I took Faster and converted it to use a gallery instead of creating the image layout on our own. In my testing, using an actual, written-out gallery is by far the fastest load time of all, but since that makes input complicated (i.e. "File:James Howlett (Earth-616) from New Avengers Vol 1 3 page 09.jpg|[[James Howlett (Earth-616)|Wolverine (James "Logan" Howlett)]]<br>[[Mainstream Continuity]]<br>([[Earth-616]])" vs. "James Howlett (Earth-616)"), I really don't see using manual galleries as really the best option for disambigs. So Fastest Disambiguation uses a modified version of the gallery tag ({{#tag:gallery|}}) with all the input manipulation features we currently enjoy.
The only real drawback to the 'Fastest' is that we lose the uniform styling to the images, and the only real drawback to 'Faster' is the loss of the rounded edges of the images. (Which kind-of looks better, now that I look closer).
Anyway, since it's all just a basic code change, and I haven't seen any real difference in load times between Faster and Fastest, I'm going to go ahead and port the Faster code over to the regular Disambiguation Template, so we'll see the changes immediately. I'll keep working on tweaking it, but I think a lot of our loading problems will be lessened.
I still have to develop simple code for multiple main characters, so once I have that all settled, our nice new shiny Disambiguation template should be pretty slick. :)
Nathan (Peteparker) (Earth-1218) (talkcontribsemail) 15:45, May 5, 2011 (UTC)
Crap, I forgot to talk about Semantics.
So semantics, as you may know, is a similar way to do things like DPL does, like retrieve all characters with black hair who are American, with much less server load. (Basically, DPL makes this call for information each and every time a page is viewed, while SMW only makes the call once to a back-end repository, making the server load much less intensive).
Because of the nature of SMW, in most cases it might be able to handle what we use DPL for, but in some specific cases, it wouldn't work. For example, let's examine how we 'grab' the month and year a comic came out for the First/Last blocks on a character page. In DPL, we put in the title of the page, and tell it how we want to display the result. Each and every time the character's page is viewed, dpl goes and gets the information from the comic page. For SMW, we'd have to re-write the comic template to display the month and year as something like: [[Year Published::2001|2001]]. This allows us to quickly see what all was published in that month or year, kind of like categories, and it also allows us to make combination requests, like "what was published in 2001 and in December and starred Peter Parker (Earth-616)", but it doesn't allow us to just retrieve the information from a specific title.
So the short of it is if we implemented SMW, we might rely on DPL less overall, but we'd still require use of it in some places just to keep things running as they do now. The other drawback I see with SMW is that it is something Wikia can turn on and off pretty quickly for any wiki based on server load. So we could potentially lose functionality of anything we use it for for a bit while the server loads are too high. (I guess the idea is to have the site partially working rather than have the whole thing going).
Anyway, I'd like to test a combination of SMW and DPL together, but I don't think the main site is the best place for it. I was thinking of importing a bunch of pages from here over to my test wiki, and then having both enabled over there to do some testing. Ideally, if it turns out to be better than what we have now, as well as better for Wikia, I'd like to have all the templates modified and ready for the switch before we turned SMW on over here. (Though I'm imagining a whole metric ton of work).

How's your quest to find the best way to tackle this page going? --ProfessorKilroy 05:03, April 16, 2011 (UTC)

Hey, I've written up synopses for the Iron Man micro-episodes (which will hopefully be put into the one page...), so I was wondering if you wanted to check them out? It's all pretty lengthy (maybe too long?), so yeah... I had just a couple of technical questions: Should I put the quotes I have integrated into the synopsis in italics? If it's too long, maybe I could include a summary-blurb-type thing? Yeah... Thanks for all of your help on this. You've been really great. --ProfessorKilroy 11:16, 17 April, 2011 (UTC)
I put the synopses on the micro-episode pages, to be merged later (hopefully). The first one is here! Oh, and I had another question about tense. Present or past? What's the go?
So, since the poll thingy didn't really go anywhere, what's gonna happen with this stuff? --Professor Kilroy 05:54, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

Merging Wikis? Edit

Hi, I was editing over on the Entertainment wiki and was going add some new entries to the Marvel Comics directory when I saw your post about merging at the Avengers wiki. I would fully support this merge along with a number of others I've found that haven't been edited in quite some time. If its possible for these merges to happen, let me know what I can do to help. Stinger80 22:27, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Moving pages Edit

For a while now there have been a few of the Spaceknights pages that have had 'suggested move - Discuss' on them and there has been no activity. I realize I'm probably the only Galadorian Geek on this page but I would like to get these ironed out to follow the standard naming conventions. You can see on the main page: Spaceknights (Galadorian) (Earth-616) that there are about a half dozen that do not have the current naming conventions. I have the links established but the pages appear under different names. I have not done anything because I was waiting for some discussion but this has not happened. I want to move these pages or create new ones and edit the current ones as redirects but don't want to start until someone more knowledgeable is OKAY with me doing so. What is your suggestion on this? What is the best way to switch these pages over? WizArtist 17:21, May 19, 2011 (UTC)

New Jobs Edit

Yea man, I hear ya. My job just today told me they're going to start monitoring our external website usage, and that all non-work-related usage needs to be stopped. So it looks like I'll only be editing at home, and probably never getting anything done. :(

Crackdown Edit

Hey Dude,

Looks like my work has finally decided to block Wikia, lol. You should see me around much less in the coming weeks. Just a heads up, figured you'd like to know just in case. :)

Vandalism Edit

Not sure if this is the right place to report this, but I found some vandalism. User:Spiderbutt vandalized the What_If?_Vol_2_42 page; here's a link to his last edit http://marvel.wikia.com/index.php?title=What_If%3F_Vol_2_42&oldid=1667409 before I fixed it. Thanks.

Sorry for snooping, but I saw the note and blocked the vandal.

Extremely important message, please read than respond. Edit

I know that this is asking a lot and quite irrelevant here, but I asking a favor of you, dude, could you unblock a user by the name of TomWellingishot, who is from Smallville wiki, who somehow got blocked from logging in and or editing until August 5th, as she has done nothing, I repeat, noting at all, whatsoever. Some bad user called Cloisfan1 has the same IP number as her and they both got blocked for what he did, thanks. Also, she is TomWellingishot, a girl user, who has never ever done something to deserve getting blocked, so please, help this poor girl out. -- ImperiexSeed, 2:55 PM, July 7th 2011

Character pages Edit

I did make a blog about this a while ago, but it hasn't really gone any further, so I thought I'd bring it up here and on the talk pages of some other editors that I've seen around the place, because I don't really know where else to take it. So, feel free to bring this up amongst other editors or somewhere or something... My blog was as follows:

So, I'm relatively new to the Marvel universe. I got interested in it firstly by watching TV shows and films, but most of my knowledge comes from this site, as I haven't ever read a comic book. Having learned this stuff from this wiki, I know that it would greatly benefit from making the history section of characters expandable. That way, each character's page would have a few paragraphs in the history section, summarising a few really important events in its main history. Then this could be extended, providing a more detailed history. That way, the general idea of the history can be gathered without having to sort through multiple paragraphs of complex history.

I think that something needs to be done about it, because there is over fifty years of history in some of those characters, and it just gets too overwhelming. It would probably take a long time to put into place, but I think overall, it would be worth it. --Professor Kilroy 13:34, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

The Multiverse Edit

I've been working on a rehual of the Multiverse page, and would like to have some feedback from admins and regular contributors. I was hoping you'd weigh in here. Thanks in advance. --Spencerz 01:18, August 25, 2011 (UTC)

Do I need to be concerned with the new format and the temporary fix you did to my JS page to allow me to use all the buttons? This was a few months ago and if this needs to be changed I just want to drop this as a reminder. WizArtist 23:54, September 29, 2011 (UTC)
