  • What would you think about adding a field to the Comic Template that displays which universe an issue takes place in? Like, for all Earth-1610 comics it would display that info? That would be very useful information to a lot of readers, I think, because then they can find other comics that take place in that same timeline, and sometimes you don't know if you're reading about something that is in the Prime Marvel Universe or elsewhere if nothing is in the article's title.

    • Yeah, but I'm thinking to make it easier for new readers to understand. We as editors might know that all unlisted things take place in the Prime Marvel Universe or might intuitively know if something else take place in a separate timeline, but a first-time reader may very well have no idea about all the different universes when reading their first article.

      (and so they're not going to go search for the "Category:Earth-1610/Appearances" page because they have no idea to even look for it. I know I would have never thought of that back before I knew about all the different Marvel timelines.)

    • I'm not disagreeing with you, simply noting a policy that has been in place since before I joined.

  • I'm not altogether sure what to make of Loki 71's edit to the page. They didn't add an editing reason and deleted a sizeable chunk of the powers section; and while there is usable stuff in what they added, a lot of it needs proofreading and rewriting to make it grammatically correct and coherent.

    Altogether I'm not sure whether to just revert the edit or comb through it and correct the mistakes - such as naming Venom (Eddie Brock) as a host.

    • I simply undid it. Nearly half of the "new" content was unreferenced and it's seemingly a large waste of our time to try and sift through and determine what is salvageable and what's not.

      Also part of it was potentially plagiarized, as some of the exact phrasing like "The alien costume also replicates Spider-Man's ability to cling to walls by controlling the flux of inter-atomic attraction between molecular boundary layers." appears all over the internet.

      I'd be happy to waste time sifting through it and rewriting the salvageable parts to be grammatically correct and worded originally.

    • Hmm. Someone may want to include Loki 71 in this conversation so as to head off an total edit war.

  • When using the Episode Template, should the Synopsis field be written in the present tense or the past tense? The style guide (linked above) doesn't say.

    Thanks!

  • Could you take a look at this: first section ends with "the maximum limit of human potential", second section starts with "The most common power granted by the Super-Soldier Serum is that of exceeding peak human potential." And on third "which improves their reflexes beyond those of a normal humans, and even the unenhanced humans who conditioned themselves to be peak humans." Clear contradictions, as the second and third sections part says they go beyond human limit and first that they are on the top of it.

    Could you make judgment on which one is correct one?

    • This doesn't represent an issue this time since both pages were created by yourself, but if you ever want to suggest to move an article, please never create a duplicate of the page with the desired new name.

  • Hello! I'm editor of russian marvel.wikia.com. I would like to ask you, why in the article about Nidavellir events of Thor Reign of Blood Vol 1 1 are identified with events of the last story arc of Thor Vol 2? Era of the Twenty-Third Ragnarök occurred earlier than Ragnarök in Thor Vol 2.

  • I have noticed there are A LOT of comics in the wikia that are really reprints... are there any reprint template so that they don't appear as comics?

      Loading editor
    • I recall there being talks about improving the reprint template, but I was not active in them. As for your question, I don't quite get it. Despite reprinting old material, reprints are still comics. The only difference between normal and reprinted stories is that no appearance categories should be added in reprints.

    • I don't have anything against reprints articles, but treating them as comics (with the volume and number) can be a bit confusing... For example, are volume number of reprints taking in consideration when numbering non reprints volumes? Just imaging if all tpbs and other countries reprints are added to the mix (which 99% are not in the wikia right now), finding the correct comic would be a nightmare...

      Also I don't undertsand why most TPBS and international reprints are not in the wikia, but some are...

    • The predicament is that we don't have anyone versed enough in markup to create a template that doesn't autogenerate categories, so in addition to all the other glitches it produces (like the weekly category nonsense), the current reprint template also works against all the other goals we were trying to accomplish by purging appearance/minor/mentions categories of reprints and shouldn't be used. Anyway, were that to be accomplished, then I wouldn't see a problem with nesting Category:Reprints, Category:Trade Paperbacks, etc. within Category:Comics rather than in both their own category and the Comics category as well.

      Obviously for the same reason the True Believers line and any other non-reprints aren't present, because nobody has added them as yet.

  • Peter Parker (Assassin) (Earth-91119), Miguel O'Hara (Earth-91119), Nathan Summers (Earth-91119), Arno Stark (Earth-91119), and Peter Parker (Noir) (Earth-91119) have all been tagged to move to their respective true reality designations some time ago, but haven't been renamed yet. Is there a way to easily have articles like them be renamed faster?
