I just started a new wikia for the upcoming Marvel tv show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. If would be awesome if you could look at it and maybe edit any mistakes you see... if don't want to, you don't have to...
Hey, WarBlade brought up an few interesting points about our use of the Marital Status field in the infobox, and I wanted to grab an admin or three to offer their views on the matter. If you have a moment, perhaps you can stop by the thread and weigh in.
Civil War: House of M Vol 1 2: The Genoshan mutates have the correct script for them to be listed as appearing, but no, they don't want to. Could you help me on this one ? The error must be technical (fat away from my skills) or that obvious that I can't see it.
Well this is no big deal, but that just double the text:
This page contains a listing of all known appearances of this character. If you find an Issue this Character appears in that is not shown here, please edit that issue adding "Artful Dodger/@comment-Undoniel-20130518121500/@comment-Undoniel-20130518123307" as a Cast member.
Chronological Appearances (by Publication)
Extension:DynamicPageList (DPL), version 1.9.0 : Warning: No results.
Not the end of the world, but better without double it, I think.
Well, not sure what's happening. I am pulling pages from the Category:Appearances_Category_Needed page, so if they are listed there, the bot will hit them. Since the page is only refreshed every 24 hours, I might be picking up some pages that were created, autocategorized, then fixed by a user, but not updated in the Category page.
As for the Chronological text, that is standard so users can read the chronological order if they want. It does look odd when there is only only chronological entry, but that is unavoidable.
As for the Mutates, the problem was the presence of the # character in their title. That character is used to signify section links, so having it in the appearance field was breaking it. All is good now.
Oh I have another questions: I still have kind of problem to use the wikia, does it is a way for:
Making clear searches: ex: When I was looking for Royal or US marines for my recent pages, I had type Marine, but that have given to me all links containing Marine, Marines, Mariner, so all the issue or articles with Namor in it. So does it is way to search specific words, without some specific other words, or to search that word and/or this one, etc.. (on Google, putting " "word" " is enough, or adding + or -. (I think) Same options here ?
For the same use, does it a way to perform a research on the pages categorization by crossing their results (I'm currently editing categories regarding to hybridation, mutancy, eternality, deviancy, etc, and that could help me to have a global vision of it, and faster searches. Thanks
Wikia's search is not very good, in my opinion. It comes up with some very strange results. I'm not sure how they arrive at their search results. You could swing by the Community Central page and see if anyone has more information...
Keep in mind that this only information that I can find from our own data, which the pages above can show is far from complete; there could be dozens more that aren't listed on the site yet (I feel a trip to comicbookdb.com would reveal more). And since Tony Ingram and Robert Alvarez, who added pretty much all of these, aren't really around much anymore, we don't really have someone that knowledgeable in the UK market.
I could use some advice. I don't know what to do about this guy. His edits are just...hard to look at. I feel as though there's a possible language barrier there, but "Your edits suck" is likely a low blow in any language. But I'm unsure how to go about informing him that his edits are either not formatted right or are just plan unneeded (in some cases).
