  • Is this something you're able to help with? (Unfortunately, I'm not familiar enough with that reality to even know if things are sufficiently different from comic continuity to warrant its own subsection on that specific item.)

    • As far as I can recall, Mjolnir did look quite different in the TV movie, and I suspect it had different properties, but it's been years since I've seen the movie and I no longer own it. Sorry.

    • No worries. Thanks for the reply. ^_^

  • Please, whenever you upload a new image, be sure to follow our site's Naming Conventions regarding the name with which you should upload it.

    Thanks!

    • I had forgotten why I gave up contributing here on a regular basis. Thanks for reminding me. It was all the pointless bureaucracy creeping in. It used to be so much more relaxed. I just won't bother anymore, OK?

    • I'm sorry you feel that way, but its a lot more laid back than wikipedia and such.

    • That isn't saying very much these days, which is why I no longer edit wikipedia either. A few years ago, when I started editing here, and on the DC site (which I became sick to death of, too, because of their ever tighter rules about what information qualified for inclusion) and others, it was all very friendly and relaxed, and just generally fun. These days it seems as though all anyoe cares about is rules, rules and more rules. What does it matter if an image is named a certain way or not, as long as its use is permitted? What difference, ultimately, does it make? And how does enforcing all these largely incomprehensibe rules actually attract new peope to the wiki? It doesn't!

    • Personally I find the naming conventions as the fall back in case the person fails to licence the image properly and allows for images to be organised in some chronological fashion without having to open them up.

      The rules are generally in place to ensure information that is added is correct and accurate, I'm not sure what incomprehensible rules you are talking about, but if you have any questions you can always ask. You edits have for the most part been great so it would be sad to loose an editor but if that's the way you feel.

  • Hey, we are in the middle of an image cleanup and an image I assume is from you got tagged for deletion (sweet costume, btw)

    Do you want to hang on to it? You could add it to your profile page so it doesn't end up in the Unused Images category.

  • In that case, shouldn't the notes section contain that information (Baker, I mean)?

    • It's not really necessary. The comic strip was only one element of the magazine, and it generally featured whoever was the current Doctor on TV. Every strip featured the fourth Doctor until Peter Davison took over on TV, then every strip for the next three years featured the fifth Doctor, and so on. There was a brief period in the early 1990s when they mixed and matched Doctors, but not until after the TV series went off air.

    • So, was a difference between cover and content normal?

        Loading editor
    • Yes. It's a magazine (still being published, though no longer by Marvel). As I said, the strip is just a small part of the content. The rest is articles on all aspects of Doctor Who. The cover is a photo of Pertwee because there's a lengthy feature on his era inside, it has nothing to do with the comic strip.

  • Heya :) We at Wikia are trying to get some opinions about Age of Ultron. Since you're a super fan and one of the Marvel Database's most active recent contributors, we thought you'd be the perfect person to ask!

    We'd love to know what you think about the new characters joining the Avengers cast and/or the cool weapons that the Avengers smash around town with. Just give us a line or two about what you'r most looking forward to when it comes to these two topics. You can just reply to this message, and I'll put your thoughts into the hopper at Wikia Central!

    Thanks a lot!

  • Hi.

      Loading editor
  • Well, Tony, if you read the exchange between Nick, Spencer and I, you know that I was outvoted. I hope that you will change your mind about leaving the site. I, for one, appreciated your contributions.

      Loading editor
    • Thank you Bill. I appreciate your suppot and your encouragement. Unfortunately I just don't feel I can be comfortable here anymore. This site has been important to me for some years now and I believed I was contributing something worthwhile with my input regarding the Marvel UK universe, which was in itself inextricably linked with the Doctor Who strip for well over a decade. I felt I was part of a community of friends where I was accepted, which is rare for me. Apparently this is not the case. I handled the matter badly, i know that, but the individual I was interacting with was, I believe, being deliberately provocative, and I was both angry and hurt when Nick, as I saw it, took his side and spoke to me in a manner I either rightly or wrongly considered patronizing (I would also like to point out, in answer to the comments from Nick regarding the good Doctor's legitimacy as a Marvel character, that not only did the Doctor Who strip spawn several characters who have since become integrated into the Marvel Universe, but that the Doctor himself has directly interacted with characters from elsewhere in the Marvel Universe both in and outside his own strip on several occasions; he appears, for instance, in Death's Head Vol 1 8, and that alone should be enough to qualify him for entry here). Anyway, regardless: I know myself and my temperament, and I don't believe I can be here anymore. I certainly wouldn't trust myself to be civil to the individual I was arguing with, who I would undoubtedly cross paths with again. I am also basically very precious about my work and respond badly to having it deleted or considered irrelevant or worthless (probably a stupid attitude, but that's me), and even more badly to insinuations like the one put forth by the individual the other night that I would input material without knowing it was correct, or worse, knowing that it wasn't. In all the time I have been here, I have never, ever to my knowledge entered information the veracity of which I was uncertain of, and I was again angered that the person in question insinuated that I had without being challenged. As I said, this site has been very important to me, it's been a labour of love, but I just feel it's been soured for me now, for good. I just wanted to thank you for contacting me and for your kind comments. I appreciated it.

    • I understand where you're coming from. I was told by Billy and Rab on DC wiki that my contributions were 'ugly', 'boring' and 'unnecessary' and that's why I no longer contribute there despite being an admin. I am sure that if you continue with wikia on another wiki you will do good work.

    • Hmm, I'm sorry this came about. I do not know what happened. However I do think it would be unfortunate to lose someone contributing valuable information as you have. I have enjoyed working on this site and will continue to provide information and hope you will too.

      Points you should bring up here, where the issue is being discussed.

      In my own defense:
      1) I did not start an edit war. You kept saying I should refer the page to an admin to discuss it's deletion, yet kept removing the deletion tag, something that exists for the purposes of referring a page to an admin for its deletion. Furthermore, simply being tagged for deletion does not automatically mean deletion. I tagged a page for deletion, one whose deletion doesn't even need to be argued, about a month ago that still exists. You should have waited for an admin to take the tag off the page rather than taking it upon yourself.
      2) I remained civil during the entire ordeal. I did not leave increasingly hostile messages on your message wall. Furthermore, I also warned you thrice (in the message I left on your wall, as a description on an edit adding the deletion tag, and as a response to one of the messages you left on my wall) before I reported you to a site administrator.
      3) I do not feel your contributions are "worthless" or "irrelevant", or ugly or boring for that matter. It is only the one page that I took issue with. Furthermore, every user, regardless of how experienced, will make a mistake at some point. I have made a whole mess of mistakes in the past. Even Spencerz, a site administrator, realized he should probably revisit some of his old edits while commenting on this issue. But two admins at this point have said that the page does not belong here, which, although not yet a majority, is enough for you to probably consider you might have made a mistake, or you can at least understand why the page is controversial. As Darkseid01 puts up a valid defense of the page, the discussion should at least be had.
      If this one possible mistake is enough for you to not want to contribute to this site again, then that is your choice. But you should realize that it is only your choice, and you are welcome back here at any point.

  • There may be a Dr. Who special comic made by Marvel comics, but that alone does not qualify him to be here. For the same reason, characters included in Marvel Comics' runs with Star Wars and Transformers comics do not have a page here. See Transformers Vol 1 1 for an example.

    • I quit. Nobody treats me like this. I will not be patronized and I don't need you.

    • Well nobody is holding you to it Tony. Given your attitude toward others I can't say that I'm sorry to see you go. But your not the first or last person to pull this sort of attitude when you don't get your own way. Enjoy your future endeavours. You're welcome to come back whenever you decide to play fair with others.
