@guttridgeb: The techs would have to solve it.
This topic is locked from further discussion.
@Mediumflyer7: The PM system is based off of a OS that CV incorporated into its greater whole. It is pretty effective for what we use it for. It would be nice to have automatic updates, I am not sure if it is in the interest of the techs to do so when there are other things that need fixing.
and to change the cover picture of a wiki entry.
This is possible. There is a thread in the E&T forum
@Teerack: you would be able to for everything but covers if you had more points, we have to protect the wiki and there is no reason to allow regular users to delete covers as they do not change and very few actually do cover replacements.
@Teerack: different abilities get unlocked when you reach certain point levels, when you hit 1000 you get unmoderated edits of existing pages and once you hit 5000 you get full live edit and you can change default pictures for all page types except issues. You can also rename volumes once you get 1000. Renaming any other pages can only be done by a moderator, same goes for deleting pages and covers hence why we have threads for requests.
Would be nice to add a field for the comics date to the add new issue and volume. See a lot of issues that get added (mosty foreign) but the date never gets updated. Leading to my next issue of comics with no date getting priority on recent issues over those with. Maybe something that can be done with the new site to put issues with no date at the end or use the volumes date for sorting puposes. Finally would be nice to have a mass add feature, for example I find a volume with no writer, but the same one did all the issues, would be nice to add to multiple than one at a time.
How hard would it to be able to make a list of threads like we make lists of everything else? (by the way would also be useful for moderating.).
On issue wiki pages it would be nice to have a "Plot summary" portion and a notes portion for the other information about the issues that is not relevant to the plot.

I go ahead and make a notes section if I feel it is necessary to explain mistakes in the issue or if special things are included with the comic (like trading cards). Is that what you are thinking of?
