I know that pictures are supposed to be captioned, but what are we supposed to put? Just describe the image in a few words, put something funny, put the issue? :]

#104 Posted by RazzaTazz (9448 posts) - - Show Bio

@Xanni15: Describe or as a default just which issue it came from.

@RazzaTazz: Is there a way to get Issue #0 to show up on the volume page? I put in a 0 but it doesn't show up like issue #1 does.

@Xanni15: it should show up just not in the same sequence

@lokiofmidgaard: last I checked the indicias listed the sub-titles as the volumes are named so they are split volumes even though they are technically a series.

How much of a character must be cybernetic to warrant being listed as a cyborg? Luke Skywalker has one prosthetic hand and I personally wouldn't call him a cyborg but that is what he is listed as.

#114 Posted by RazzaTazz (9448 posts) - - Show Bio
@guttridgeb: I would say that is a case by base judgment based on the character and those editing them.  Generally I would say that they get listed as cyborg if they rely heavily on those enhancements.  Luke doesn't

I have a question about editing a summary on a issue i have seen some that have a couple of sentences and call that a summary but if i have a longer and better one that truly describes the story what should i do, delete the old summary and add mine or just add mine to whats there?? any help is appreciated tyvm.

#117 Posted by RazzaTazz (9448 posts) - - Show Bio

@ComicCollectorNC78: You can delete the old, just try to make sure most of the information is maintained. Also don't go too in depth

@RazzaTazz: @pikahyper:

If I edit two members of a team/group/etc and some of the same information can be listed on both pages, can I copy/paste my own information onto the other page if I wrote it on the first? Hopefully that makes sense.

#120 Posted by pikahyper (11343 posts) - - Show Bio

@Xanni15: seems reasonable as long as it isn't like 100% the same, some wordings are bound to be the same/similar for some characters.

@Xanni15: Yes it is generally ok, not entire articles, use some discretion.

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

@RazzaTazz: It's more having to do with an animated TV show that two people were on and essentially did the same thing, they are part of a team and since I don't need to go into great detail I just thought it would be okay to use the same summary. Thanks. :]

This animal has the cover of an issue listed, is connected to the issues page, but on the right side of the animals page it doesn't show up in that little box. Why?

If you are referring to this little box?

Then it has to be manually entered by editing this section and inputting it. Filling out one won't automatically affect the other. Hope that helps?

#125 Edited by Xanni15 (6758 posts) - - Show Bio

@SC: Yes, that little box. So a first appearance has to be in there before it'll automatically go in there when you attach issues? Thanks. :]

Edit: I added the first appearance but it still shows up as 0 issues even though when you click on it, it goes to the issue.

#126 Posted by SC (12505 posts) - - Show Bio

@Xanni15: When you add a character by going to the comic book and manually adding them to the issue, it will be reflected here.

and also here

and also as far as showing the exact issues the character has been in? Sometimes its not accurately reflected in the other box I sent you - from my experience this tends to be common with characters with only one appearance - the more issues they are in usually helps the first appearance register - hope that kind of makes sense? Maybe after a few days it might update and reflect the one issue - I am not sure and will leave for someone else who might now to answer. Sorry couldn't help more.

Hello~

I'm new at editing (just wrote my first chara profile yesterday) and I'm a bit confused. ^^"

I edited Bug-Eyed Monster because there wasn't anything written in it and I'm currently reading Superboy (from 1994-2002) where he shows up.

What's irritates me is, that as publisher is written Dark Horse Comics (that was already written) but under the recent Issues are also DC Comics and I wrote the article with the DC Image in mind. I never read a Dark Horse Comic, so I didn't knew if it was the same character or not. Later I looked at one of the Dark Horse Covers and realized.

The purple guy bottom left
isn't the same as this one from Superboy

So I'm not sure what I should do? Just change the publisher? It isn't the same Character, he just uses the same "Supername" at least Bug-Eyed Monster was the title of the Superboy Issue he appeared the first time.

#129 Posted by Billy Batson (57704 posts) - - Show Bio

@EMH_Bruce:

Change the publisher, add a new character page for the old one and transfer the old info (which would be the Dark Horse issues this case) to the new page.

Just to make sure, if I delete pictures from my gallery they won't be deleted from the wiki, right?

#136 Posted by The Poet (8287 posts) - - Show Bio

@Xanni15: nope. it would still be in the wiki gallery. If that would happen then a tone of issues would be without covers when Pikahyper cleared his image gallery :P

This may have been answered somewhere else so I apologize in advance. How do you handle characters that are married? Is their maiden name an alias or their real name? Does their married name become their real name or just an alias?

#138 Posted by RazzaTazz (9448 posts) - - Show Bio

@Xanni15: Go with their married name as their real name, their maiden name as an alias.

Added Street and Smith's Iron Munro last night:

A character appearing in Golden Age Shadow Comics. He replaced Iron Munro of DC who was incorrectly connected to Shadow wiki entries

today found my new Munro page deleted and the DC character back on Shadow entries. WHY?

It's the same character.

Nah. The Street and Smith Iron Munro is a Golden Age Sci-Fi Scientist/Space explorer who lives on Jupiter and who appeared in the Golden Age Shadow Comics.

While Iron Munro from Young All-Stars of DC comics is the super-strong son of Hugo Danner (from Philip Wylie's Gladiator)

#142 Posted by RazzaTazz (9448 posts) - - Show Bio

@turoksonofstone: Is it not a case of DC buying the rights and revamping the character? It could go under Other Versions maybe.

Moderator
#143 Posted by turoksonofstone (13199 posts) - - Show Bio

@RazzaTazz: No, the Street and Smith books and Characters are still owned by Street and Smith(Conde nast etc.) DC Created Iron Monroe based on the Hugo Danner character from Gladiator. DC Iron Monroe and the far older and completely distinct Street and Smith Iron Monroe are separate unrelated characters with no shared history whatsoever. I don't see where the confusion comes in.

#144 Posted by RazzaTazz (9448 posts) - - Show Bio

@turoksonofstone: The confusion comes from similar names and thousands of characters in the wiki. You can re-add it though.
