Not sure where this complaint is supposed to go so I'll just leave it here: Joker Venom should be an object, not a concept.

@citizenbane: there are different types of joker venom delivered by different means, the device that delivers the venom would be an object but the venom itself would be a concept as least as far as I see it.

There's a lethal and non-lethal variant of the Venom, and that's about it. They have the same ultimate effect: forcing your facial muscles into a rictus grin, it's just that one variant kills you in the process while the other basically drags it out and makes you suffer. The different means are unimportant considering that the chemical and the effect are the same regardless of whether it's delivered in liquid form or aerosol form or whatever. The Super Soldier Serum and the Man-Bat Serum are both classified as objects even though the same things apply to them: there are different types, delivered by different means, etc. For that matter there are different types of Kryptonite, all with wildly different effects, and yet Kryptonite is still an object and not a concept.

@citizenbane: just cause other pages have them categorized as objects doesn't mean it is right just means the site used to have pretty low standards, @razzatazz what do you think? chemicals/venoms/serums better as concepts or objects?

as for kryptonite I see it as both, the overall rock is a concept but the specific types are objects, a kryptonite concept would include broad information with links to separate object pages for the different types (green, red, white, etc.) and specific details on them and links leading back to the concept page for general info so it isn't redundant.

@pikahyper: I can see that, but I think generally speaking that anything that exists in physical form should be classified elsewhere than a concept. A concept page would be something more like "Fictional Metals of Comics" which would never be tagged but which could have lots of good info on it. So serums, poisons, and the like should be objects, not concepts, but it is possible to define the other stuff in some way. It would be nice to have an umbrella page for all comic book metals. One of those things that would make this site unique.

@pikahyper: Outlaw Avengers with Secret Avengers as an alias... at this point mostly coz the Secret Avengers page is still glitched and even though I've slowly been adding it's credits back, the way the site indexes now means that the Civil War one is currently returned first for most searches. And what with so many lazy people on this site...

Ravager ---- change name to Rose Wilson. Ravager is a title that multiple people have held, and if the Robins each have their own name-page (i.e Damian's page isn't called Robin just because he was the most recent), then I don't know why Rose's page is called Ravager. Plus continuity has changed and Rose's connection to the name has been altered drastically ---- she's no longer called Ravager and the name now stands for something else entirely.

While this is all well and good, Rose is by far the character most commonly associated with the title, and while it makes sense for her character page to be retitled to her actual name because of the new BS continuity and all,, she no longer appears in the search bar when you type in "Ravager". Shouldn't that be fixed at least?

Also, should there not be a new page created in this case detailing the different Ravagers? Such as there is with Manhunter?

She should, I don't know why she doesn't since Ravager is still included in her list of aliases. She shows up if you type "Skill", so she should still show up for "Ravager".

I asked if this was possible, but apparently mantle pages have been discontinued.

Well she doesn't... something isn't working and needs to be fixed. Hell, Galactus shows up before Rose does when you type in Ravager... She should still probably be the first result, or at least one of the first results, with that keyword.

Well that's kind of dumb... Why keep around old mantle pages and discontinue new ones? If you're discontinuing the idea, shouldn't old mantle pages be deleted as well?

@pikahyper Anything to be done about this? Maybe removing the alias and adding it again or something like that, idk.

Some of the old mantle pages were deleted. There used to be a Batgirl page a year ago, but not anymore. I was told the Robin and Flash pages were kept because they attract a lot of page views, and the Green Lantern page is still around since it's also a concept. Manhunter.....not really sure why its still around.

Don't forget the worst mantle page of them all: Ghost Rider.

That Manhunter page shouldn't be there, if anyone wants to transfer credits and so on, feel free.

And Ghost Rider might be better as a concept page now.

Plus tbh that alias is kinda worthless as "of" and "the" aren't searchable and Susan Storm is already there.
