Hello,
 
   
My name is Jamie Hari and in case you didn't know I am the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Marvel Database Project (aka MDP) and [http://en.dcdatabaseproject.com DC Database Project] (aka DCDP).

Hey there,
   
Please don't hesitate to [mailto:jamie@marveldatabase.com drop me an email] and say hello. All [[{{SITENAME}}:Suggestions|suggestions]] regarding how we can make the Database better are always welcome! I encourage you to check out our [http://forums.marveldatabase.com forums] to see what is new!

My name is Jamie Hari and I am the founder of the Marvel and [http://dc.wikia.com DC Database] Projects.
   
See you around,
+
Inspired by [[Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe|Marvel's Handbooks]] and [http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Who's_Who DC's Who's Who] issues, I had a crazy childhood dream of creating the greatest comic book encyclopedia ever made. In these pages you find the fruit of thousands of hours of tireless effort since 2005 by members who have joined me in this daunting, but rewarding task. We, the contributors, hope you enjoy endless hours of reading about the decades of history we have transcribed for you.
   
<br>
+
These days, those who are more knowledgeable than me keep these pages updated, while I contribute in other ways. You can often find me promoting our work at conventions, in the media, or to other comic book industry professionals.
   
Jamie Hari <br>
+
It never ceases to amaze me when I see our work discussed, referenced, or linked to by fellow fans. I am perpetually motivated by the positive impact it has had, however small, on someone's enjoyment of the comic book medium. To that end, please don't hesitate to [mailto:jamie@marveldatabase.com drop me an email] and say hello.

==To Do List==
 
===High Priority===
 
* [http://en.marveldatabase.com?title=User:Jamie/test&action=edit&section=new&preload=Template:Gallery%20Template&editintro=MediaWiki:AddCharacterMessage User:Jamie Test] works, but [http://en.marveldatabase.com?title=Special:Mypage/test&action=edit&section=new&preload=Template:Gallery%20Template&editintro=MediaWiki:AddCharacterMessage Special:MyPage Test] does not.
 
** If Special:MyPage worked, we could have a 'add to favourites' or 'add to wishlist' button. :)
 
*** Waiting on fix for [http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11566 Bug 11566]
 
* Install a tooltip extension to help with options on templates.
 
* Do something with [http://www.dcdatabaseproject.com/DC_Database:Years_Template this] for MDP and DCDP.
 
* Image templates as found [http://wiki.guildwars.com/index.php?title=Image:Adsulata-A.jpg&oldid=382886 here].
 
* Interwiki Link to Marvel.com ([[Marvel:foo]])
 
* YouTube throughout!
 
* Marvel Online!
 
* [http://semeb.com/dpldemo/index.php?title=DPL:Requests_for_new_features_Archive#Global_Background-color Fix for DPL problem].
 
* '''[http://www.domaintools.com/enwikipedia/marveldirectory.com Them] and [http://www.domaintools.com/enwikipedia/marveldatabase.com us].'''
 
* I know I can do the [[Template:Category]] page better...
 
* '''[http://en.dcdatabaseproject.com/Template_talk:Welcome Do this]''' and '''[[Marvel_Database_talk:Gallery_Template|this]]'''.
 
* [[MediaWiki:Edittools]] (develop this out further, especially for es/nl/hu/fi wikis)
 
** Add also 'help tips', such as M1shawhan's idea about naming conventions...
 
** Maybe use 'pop-up' windows like we use on Mari's site?
 
* [http://www.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Dynamic_navigation ah] [http://www.wikia.com/wiki/Help:Custom_edit_buttons crap].
 
* Add FAQs to each template, especially the comic and character templates.
 
** This will allow us to point new users to answers without having to explicitly write it on their user talk pages each time. :)
 
* Fix [http://en.marveldatabase.com/index.php?title=Marvel_Database_talk:Character_Template&curid=36366&diff=180460&oldid=173395 this] for Matt.
 
* '''Add 'ifexist' logic to the User Bar. How are newbies supposed to know how create their own blog feed?'''
 
** '''If the page exists, it should take them to it... If it doesn't exist, it should take them to a place where they hit a button to create it for them!'''
 
** '''Should work for blog / favourites / wishlist / collection / etc.'''
 
* Lock 'moves' down to admins only. MDP and DCDP, both.
 
* Look at the changes to [[MediaWiki:Common.css]] from the DCDP.
 
* Change stubs to templates; left off at [http://en.marveldatabase.com/index.php?title=Category:Article_Request&from=Aggamon Aggamon]
 
* Create 366 'day' pages (ie. [[January 1]]) which can be dynamically fed to a 'today in comics' section.
 
** Use a template to automate functionality and structure formatting.
 
* Shorten (tighten) licensing dropdown list for uploads
 
** Finish Image License Tags (make them all uniform looking and finish the ones that don't exist)
 
*** How come that didn't change? Is Wikia caching it somehow?
 
** [[{{SITENAME}}:Image_Tags]] - Fix this to reflect the new dropdown box!
 
* Create a '[[Marvel_Database:Customizations|database project customizations]]' page which will maintain a list of things we implement so we can find them more easily when creating a new version of the database. (Image, Dark Horse, French, Italian, etc)
 
* Implement <nowiki>{{DEFAULTSORT:New Key}}</nowiki> for all templates, as necessary. (Comic template for sure)
 
* Enable subpages on Main namespace??? [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Sub_pages#Enabling_in_main_name_space]
 
* Lovely... now I need to clean [[Template:Superherobox|this]] and [[Template:Infobox Comic|this]] up too!
 
* Create a 'reserve article' task. (MW 1.10 has a timed page protection feature.)
 
* New Feature: Track my comics, something similar to stashmycomics.
 
** For comic collections, find a way to implement adding runs by specifying endpoints of the run. (eg. X-Men 3 - X-Men 45)
 
* Create a template to place in character profiles that links automagically to the strength scale...
 
** Make templates for Force Scale, Distance Scale and Height Scale, too. ;)
 
* Organize this stuff: [[:Category:Miscellaneous]]
 
* [[{{SITENAME}}:Tutorials]]
 
* Make a 'battle' section (votes)
 
* I think CCat changed [[Gallery:Characters|this page]]. Fix it on DCDP.
 
* [http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Vic_Fontaine#Appearances Here] is a great idea for appearances. A collapsing list!
 
* Create a [[Marvel Database:Privacy policy|privacy policy]] for us and DCDP.
 
* How should I deal with this? [[:nl:Sjabloon:Afbeeldingen_Sectie]]
 
* Add these: [http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Template:Wikipedia] & [http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Template:IMDb-link]
 
* [[Template:CategoryTOC]]
 
* Create an alternate-reality reverse-lookup page. (Mangaverse <-> Earth-2301, etc)
 
* What to do about non-canon stuff ([[GI_Joe_59|G.I. Joe]])
 
** Oh [[MINERVA|Minerva]]...
 
* [[Classic_X-Men_16|Example of a perfect article!!!]] (Make 'examples' out of them. :)
 
* Check integrity of character and comic templates between mdp-en, mdp-nl and dcdp-en.
 
* Implement comic template auto-spoiler on dcdp.
 
* A 'submit' form that uses the [http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Algorithm/actionCreate actionCreate] functionality, seemingly already available. (Can we extend this further to include an 'template options dropdown'?)
 
* Create new dynamic task-lists such as 'if Eyes = empty, add to Category:Eyes unknown'
 
* Extend <nowiki><randomimage></nowiki> extension to allow for category=Storm, to limit the random images to a given category. Useful for a 'slideshow' effect on character templates. (Could be done by smooth-gallery extension above?)
 
** This could be done by the volunteer dev team.
 
 
===Low Priority===
 
* Have Peter clean [http://nl.marveldatabase.com/index.php?title=Speciaal:Newimages&until=20061118193749 this] up. (There is no need for images on any database, but English.)
 
* [http://forums.marveldatabase.com/viewtopic.php?f=73&t=797&p=12097#p12097 CRAZY AWESOME idea] by Ouchmaker for collapsible locations listings.
 
* Forest777 = For3$t = The Forest... Grrr.
 
* [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:User_Image_Gallery User Image Gallery]
 
* [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Glossary Tooltip Glossary]
 
* [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SmoothGallery Smooth Gallery] (Including Slideshow)
 
* Add User [[:Category:Awards|Awards]] to MDP and DCDP.
 
** Use the imagemap extension so that the little award icons automagically link to a category of all users who have that award.
 
* [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Category:Status_stable_extensions Goodies!] (Stable MW Extensions)
 
* [http://imagedatabaseproject.com Image] & [http://darkhorsedatabaseproject.com Dark Horse] Database Projects.
 
* What happened to RC Patrol? Are logged in users set to 'autopatrol' their own edits?
 
* Replace [[Template:Fact]] with [[Template:Citation]]. (Awaiting on a bug)
 
* Other cool wikis to keep an eye on: [http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Portal:Main] [http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page] [http://familyguy.wikia.com/wiki/Templates] [http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page]
 
* [http://en.anime.wikia.com/wiki/Animepedia:Wikia_Graphical_Entertainment_Project WGEP]
 
* [[Template:Gold_Star]] (bug 2257 breaks desired functionality)
 
* Interstitials in Character/Comic templates!?!
 
* IGN.com (etc)
 
* Buy-now button on our comic pages. Talk to Wikia.
 
* Fix upload (size) warning for Copycat.
 
* Export [[{{SITENAME}}:Userboxes|Userboxes]] to DCDP.

Jamie Hari Bloomberg Businessweek - Banner


Hey there,


My name is Jamie Hari and I am the founder of the Marvel and DC Database Projects.

Inspired by Marvel's Handbooks and DC's Who's Who issues, I had a crazy childhood dream of creating the greatest comic book encyclopedia ever made. In these pages you find the fruit of thousands of hours of tireless effort since 2005 by members who have joined me in this daunting, but rewarding task. We, the contributors, hope you enjoy endless hours of reading about the decades of history we have transcribed for you.

These days, those who are more knowledgeable than me keep these pages updated, while I contribute in other ways. You can often find me promoting our work at conventions, in the media, or to other comic book industry professionals.

It never ceases to amaze me when I see our work discussed, referenced, or linked to by fellow fans. I am perpetually motivated by the positive impact it has had, however small, on someone's enjoyment of the comic book medium. To that end, please don't hesitate to drop me an email and say hello.


See you around,

Jamie Hari
