Hello all, Poet here.

Want to get some easy wiki points? Want to help improve the database? Well, this is the place for you!

This thread collects pages that need help in order for people to clean up this site. To do this, I have created 7 lists to assist in combating the TERRORS of editing. Look at these 6 lists to see what needs to be done. When you have fixed something, write a comment on the list (after recommending it of course) so I will know to remove it.

If you have any characters or other pages that need improvement? COMMENT HERE or on the appropriate lists! I might even set up a task for the items if they really need attention...

Bios that Need Improvement List

What happens when pages (which already have appearances) need help? They go on this list!

This list consists of pages (like characters, teams, arc, etc.):

  • whose description is lacking
  • Need formatting (based on CV standards)
  • just need a few words to say what exactly they are about, who they are...

I will try to specify what needs to be done, but most of the time it is obvious.

To check out this list go to: Bios that Need Improvement List

Characters to Edit List (for appearances) 2.0

Though the list which started it all has died (it had 935 items and stopped saving), the 2.0 version is now up and fully operational!

This list consists of:

  • Characters with 0 appearances

To check it out and see if you can find an appearance for an item go to: Characters to Edit List (for appearances) 2.0

Images to be Edited / Added List

Ever see a blurry picture on the site, or--even worse--a page with no images at all? This is the page for that!

This list consists of:

  • blurry covers
  • Pages lacking images

To check out this list go to: Images to be Edited/Added List

Locations, Creators, Etc. to Edit List (for Appearances)

There are other things on this site other than characters and this is THEIR list!

This list consists of:

  • Locations
  • Creators
  • Teams
  • Story Arcs
  • and Concepts

All things included on this list need an appearance in comics (or in the case of creators: need to be credited for some issues).

To check out this list go to: Locations, Creators, Etc. to Edit List (for Appearances)

Volumes to Edit

Characters and other things get their own list, so why not volumes?

This list consists of volumes with:

  • No Release Dates
  • No Creator / Character credits
  • Missing issues

To check this list out go to: Volumes to Edit List

Volumes to be Recycled List

Need to create a new volume on the site? Why not use a gently used one?

This list consists of:

  • Volumes which can be recycled/reused

Just take a volume from this list and rename it/add issues and PRESTO! The volume is recyled! Simple and easy!

To check out this list go to: Volumes to be Recycled List

Online Digital Comic Character List

Though my gallivants through this site, I have found some digital comic characters. Some will probably be deleted, until then this is a place to collect them.

This list consists of:

  • don't actually have a physical comic book

For example, some are from the digital Heroes comics. Now, although some of those heroes comics were reprinted by Wildstorm. A majority were not and with Wildstorm now defunct, it seems unlikely that they will appear in physical form. So, such characters which were added will be collected here.

This is a really great idea.  You'd better keep posing links to the List, to help people find it more ;)

Update on this list: we now have 952 characters on this list.
This needs to be fixed! A lot of it is easy to fix! just look over it and see if you know any of the characters. For some of them, someone can just add them to their first appearence to the character's appearnces. Just add appearences, and PM (or comment on the list) about the update. Its easy and it ranks you up in wiki points! every little bit helps!

@The Poet: do you remove characters from the list as soon as they are credited to at least one issue or do want them filled out first? because I occasionally do the research on some of the characters and find them at least a credit but I don't fill them out if I don't actually know the characters myself...also are we supposed to tell you once characters have credits or do you check them on a semi-regular basis?
Moderator
#8 Posted by The Poet (8291 posts) - - Show Bio
@aztek the lost: Well, I do try to check the list once a week.
I do remove them as soon as they are credited for one issue (some times I just change the request from appearences to bio info, but that is only with 0 detail characters)
 
I guess it doesn't matter if you tell me or not about anyone editing the characters, since I do check them. whatever flouts your boat.

Should we add some of these to the Wiki Task Queue and do a theme week?

yeah, it would be a good idea. course maybe we should add them like in groups or connecting points.
 The Cenobites would be a good place to start what with a lot of them on this site.

I plan to go through the list just as soon as I finish going through all the 0 appearence characters on the site. I'm currently on page 573 and need to go back to 570.
lots and lots of characters (fortunitly, got myself a new computer which seems to be faster on the internet, so hopefully it will load pages faster)

@aztek_the_lost: hmm...I didn't get any pms about it, but I'll try to remove them soon. That peticular list has been acting up when I try saving changes, so I'll try when I have patience!
#26 Posted by The Poet (8291 posts) - - Show Bio

Alright! time for a major update! I have:

  • reformated all the lists
  • created a 2.0 version of the Character list
  • and made a brand new title for this whole thing!

Huzzah! and bump!

@The Poet:

None of the links seem to work. They all go to a 404 error page?

odd...I guess when I edited it through the blog view the links don't work afterwards (it also said I hadn't edited it in 7 months, which isn't right as I just updated it...)

Anyway, fixed all the links!

@The Poet: for the editing could you add something to someone's page.

example: I know something about grant morrison's early life wich is not on his page.

Can I add this to his page?

#30 Posted by The Poet (8291 posts) - - Show Bio

@htb106: sure. I mean, the Moderators have to approve of this addition, but yes you can add info (as long as its factual of course, but you know that...)

This thread and it's LISTS call to me....

#33 Posted by JediXMan (29654 posts) - - Show Bio

The New Jedi Order and One Sith pages need appearances. I am a bit busy working on the main article (... and a little lazy, not gonna lie. I hate adding appearances). If somebody could add appearances for both, that'd be great.

#34 Posted by JediXMan (29654 posts) - - Show Bio
#35 Posted by The Poet (8291 posts) - - Show Bio

@JediXMan: do you want quick results? I could do a task for them and get some results pronto, or I could just leave them on the list I just added them to and wait for someone to edit them there...

Either way works for me, so I leave the decision up to you...

Moderator
#36 Posted by JediXMan (29654 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Poet:

Above the others, I'd say the NJO page takes priority, followed by the Praxeum and then the One Sith; the One Sith pages should be relatively simple, which I can do myself I suppose. But the NJO and Praxeum pages could definitely use that boost.

#37 Posted by The Poet (8291 posts) - - Show Bio

@JediXMan: I am just about to set up the task for NJO. I'll need you to judge appearances to make sure you think it's filled with as many appearances it should get and also so they are accurate...

@The Poet:

Sure thing. If I see anything that I don't think should be there, I'll rectify it. If you need me to verify something, feel free to ask. I'll do anything that I can.

@JediXMan:when the person says they're done I'll probably call upon you to confirm it's alright.

Forget the One Sith. I'm working on that right now; should be simple enough.

#42 Posted by Strafe Prower (11887 posts) - - Show Bio

I feel like this should get some more attention. I've done a lot of work on this and it's an easy way to get points.

#43 Posted by Xanni15 (6758 posts) - - Show Bio

This was an awesome idea, and very helpful pointing out pages that might need help. A lot of it is just basic stuff, not completely overhauling a page. Quick way to rack up some points.

@xanni15: Bios probably would be the best (since that has more than just characters on it and it pertains to descriptions which would go under the bios theme).

Bumping with a list of volumes that needs publishers if someone wants something to do.

I'm not sure if this is still on the table for extra points and all, but I thought I'd update you on this little project. I've spent the last few days researching these volumes and I've reduced the list from 220 to about 90. I've got a bit more to go, but I just thought I'd let you know that this is being worked on/killed.
