Oh, I saw in your contributions you've been redirecting category pages. I'm sorry for adding this version, but it means we can add price, pages and ratings to the comics, like on other wikis, and also change the display of an event name.
| StoryArc = Rex (Story Arc)
| StoryArcName = Rex
Part of the 'Rex' story arc.
As well as this, it won't put everything on one line for the event area like before.
I edited the human torch link on Fantastic Four Vol 1 5 so you can see how I have been handling the marvel character links instead of deleting them or leaving them red. I don't know what Bill thinks of this method but I have doing it for the last 4 years.
OK, thanks, I just saw them. Bill recently said to take off the w:c: links to DC and Marvel, and then he has recently been changing the universe numbers from Earth-616 to Earth-61, so I helped him with a few issues.
I will ask him about the Earth-61 since that is actually creating a mess in the categories and the marvel wiki cannot stop us from using the 616 number. That is a marvel comics thing not a marvel wiki thing.
So until a better idea comes along I have the marvel & DC character pages redirecting to marvel and DC character page lists which in turn redirects to wikipedia. the lists need to be updated since some characters still redirect to marvel, but I will get it done someday. What I disagree with is the marvel wiki should not be able to tell us we can't have marvel characters on this wiki.
Good morning Ultimantium. I like to make an attempt to get to know my fellow editors and since it's currently just the two of us here I thought I'd introduce myself informally. My name is Bill. I no longer read comics but I used to collect them as kid and had about 5000. I no longer have anything in paper but I do have some scans I've acquired from the internet mostly of the stuff I used to own in paper. I was more of a Marvel guy but I did read some DC that I got from bargain boxes at trade shows along with some of the other publishers. I'm kind of curious what is the draw to editing the Marvel pages here instead of the Marvel wiki. I see that you read Panini. Are you in the UK?
Yes, I am. About the Marvel Comics, I just think that this wiki needs updating, and wanted to help it out. When I came, you hadn't edited since the date of Stan Lee's death, and Bob hadn't edited for I think 5 days. Besides, for updating on the Marvel wiki, some of the admins (Nurdboy42, SunGodKizaru, ADour and AnnabellRice, formerly The Many-Angled One) edit most of the newer comic pages and I know another admin (Undoniel) has been going through older pages like Conan the Barbarian. But I still do help out there every day. I also collect lots of Marvel Comics, including 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s and 2010s, but while I do enjoy the older ones, they're harder to find. Sometimes I'll get reprints of them too, such as Panini Comics, Marvel UK or Marvel Masterworks. But I will try and help you out on this wiki as much as I can.
I've been thinking. If we are going to restore Marvel pages here then I don't think we should link to Marvel wiki character pages at all. I've been deleting a letter from character names so they show in red. Fantastic Four: Atlantis Rising #1 is an example of what I have in mind. I know this is a great deal of extra work to restore a page and I totally understand if you no longer want to contribute to HeyKids but I can understand Jaime's point of view. If we do not link to any Marvel wiki content then I don't see an issue with the pages being on Heykids.
I think anything is fine as long as we're not linking to the character pages on Marvel wiki. Many of their entries are text and I'm not going to take the time to delete them as they typically refer to minor characters like henchman names which never show up again.
Also, on an unrelated note, you have Marvel (Marvel, Atlas, Timely), DC, Archie, Harvey, Pacific, Malibu (I Believe) and Image (I believe) and some other comic book companies, but no Gold Key/Whitman or Dell Comics (I think.) A few days ago, I created a wiki for those two publishing companies as I had not seen one, and if you don't have any, I'd be happy to upload some images and update those comics.
If you scroll down your page you'll see that I've started a chat. And yes it's about editing. I just want to provide a little background for this wiki and it's easier to take a couple minutes in the chat box than leave message wall.
