Ever wanted to work on the wiki and get extra points for your outstanding contribution? Well then your lucky day has just arrived! 
 
This week, our mighty overlords have launched a revolutionary tool for ComicVine's wiki system. Basically the idea is, a moderator or staff member sees a page that needs serious help for one of a multitude of reasons, they flag it, tag a bounty on this problem's solution and let users earn extra points for their efforts. 
 
Basically its all explained much better then the way I explained it, right here: TASK QUEUE *gleam, gleam, sparkle, sparkle*
 
So if you're confused just go that page, read that, and see if you are up to the challenge of any of the open tasks OR post some things you think should be tasks, pages that we may have not come across yet that need some help and if a mod/admin agrees with your nomination they can make it a task and apply an appropriate bounty. So, have at it Viners!
 
PS 

If you have any questions about what needs to be done please PM a mod before jumping in.

I'm not sure if more than one person can accept a task. But just so the rest of you know, if a task is accepted- you can work on it anyway! I'm pretty sure if you work on the page after a task has been created, it is visible to us (or at least the one who made the task). So please help out where you can, even if it's a little bit. We'll hook you up!
 
On another note, please someone work on the Human Torch. It's been super plagiarized. We can't have this on the site!

@aztek the lost: i just posted a few things in the plagiarism thread, but imo i think that one of the mod's needs to make tasks for  
Clint Barton (everything is plagiarized from wikipedia except the powers section), Crystal (most of it is taken from wikipedia), and for Cyborg (everything up until the 52 and one year later section is plagiarized  from here).

How does one accept a task?

you click on the link to the character on the task queue and there will be a section at the very top of the page saying that there is a task open for the character, what the task entails what level priority it is and what the bounty is and you have the option of either clicking "I'll work on this soon" or "I finished this task" and then the task will be marked as in progress or pending approval

@aztek the lost: imo, i think that a fill me in task should be set up for Linda Park West, she is credited with over 100 appearances and is the wife of a very famous superhero and there is less than a paragraph of information on her. 
#23 Posted by geraldthesloth (33313 posts) - - Show Bio

Is there a tab for this or do we have to run to this thread every time a new one is posted?

#24 Posted by jloneblackheart (5467 posts) - - Show Bio
@geraldthesloth: So far there is no easy access. That's one of the reasons this thread got made. So, yes, you have to come to this thread or run into a task at the top of a page that needs help.

 @Nobody: Captain Kirk also needs to be fleshed out, there are only two or so paragraphs for over 300 appearances  
*EDIT* 
a task should probably be set up for Wile E Coyote, two paragraphs for almost 250 comic book appearances and the multitude of cartoons that he's been in doesn't really seem like enough
*Edit* 
McCoy has over 200 appearances and less than a paragraph of information 
Henry Gyrich, over 200 appearances and a paragraph of information 
Hawk has over 200 appearances and less than a paragraph of information  
Ted Knight needs to be formatted into sections 
Tyke over 200 appearances and less than a paragraph of info 
Anna May Watson has over 200 appearances and other than the intro paragraph only one sentence of info 
Hedy Wolfe has over 200 appearances and other than the intro paragraph only one sentence of info  
*EDIT* 
Uhura, over 200 appearances and one paragraph of information 
Scott Lang is one run-on paragraph, it should be broken up into sections 
Finnigan Sinister has over 200 appearances and one sentence of information 
Sulu has over 200 appearances and no information AT ALL (i'm finding that all of the star trek characters have pages that are sadly lacking, especially considering they have how many other media appearances between all of the television series and movies?)  
Sheena has two hundred appearances and one paragraph, not to mention (as stated on her page) is the first female comic book character, surely that warrants more than one paragraph? 
@Shatterstar:
all of these characters need "fill me in" tasks set up

Oh well if we are allowed to make suggestion :
 
Apocalypse : up to the messiah war section it was copied from wiki so a rewritting is in order - being kind of a well know marvel character

Ah, here it is... 
 
Is there any place on the site's interface that happens to lead to this, or is it simply located in this thread?  I'm used to the interface on Giant Bomb, which I believe has this feature under the Help tab on their site bar.  However, I'm not finding it up there. 
 
Any help would be appreciated...so long as it's not someone rudely telling me "wiki task...not that hard to find".

@courtney12490: There are thousands of characters who have pages that are empty or with missing segments.  Please don't list all of them.  People shouldn't rely solely on the Task system to find & edit pages.

I think the Task List page has a bug, so the tasks aren't as many as shown. Some are shown 3-4 times. 
 
We are making great progress guys, lets keep it up!

#50 Posted by courtney12490 (3477 posts) - - Show Bio
@xerox-kitty: o_O I wasn't aware that there were thousands of pages without information. From now on I'll restrict my list to characters that are pretty well known and who also appear in a good few issues. An example would be Joan Garrick, the wife of a very well-known superhero who also appears in over 100 issues. I'm sorry, I just didn't realize that there were that many empty pages. 
 
@Strafe Prower: Thank you, if somebody didn't do it soon I was gonna do it myself.
