  • Please, respect the disposition of template fields. The "Creators" field should be placed above the first appearance fields, not below.

    Thank you.

  • Please, be careful when adding the creators of different items, specifically the Iron Man suits. In many cases, a suit was not designed by the people that worked on the comic when it first appeared. For example, the Iron Man Armor Model 42 first appeared in a comic written by Kieron Gillen and penciled by Greg Land, but it was designed by Carlo Pagulayan. Something similar applies to the movie Iron Man suits that first appeared in prelude comics.

    • Several of the characters were also designed by someone else, but we usually credit the writers and pencillers of their first appearance.

        Loading editor
    • That's not the case with characters like Mosaic, Ms. Marvel, the members of the Black Order, MCU's Crossbones, MCU's Peter Quill and a bunch of others. Either way, it's incorrect to credit people that aren't actually responsible for the conception of a character (or in this case, an item).

  • Please, take into account that image names are to have "from" between the subject and the source instead of a hyphen.

    For example: "Anthony Stark (Earth-616)- Iron Man Vol 1 126 001.jpg" should be "Anthony Stark (Earth-616) from Iron Man Vol 1 126 001.jpg" instead.

    Thanks!

    • You do realize that I was previously asked to include source information for every image. And that I have been working with that naming convention for over a year.

    • Sorry it wasn't noticed earlier, but your efforts to abide to the naming conventions are appreciated.

  • Hi!

    When you correct the origin for human, add "[[Homo sapiens|Human]]" instead of "Human (Homo sapiens)", in order to have the link actually appearing on the page.

    Also, once that done, please remove the useless categories, already coded in the Module:CharacterInfoboxOrigins, and who are consequently automatically added to the page if correctly written in the origin field. In our case, we had "Pym Particles" and "Humans" (who is no longer used currently).

    Thanks in advance.

    Also, don't forget there is more to this wikia than adding categories to pages (I know you don't do only this, but still).

    Have a good day !

    • I am mostly writing summaries of old issues lately, since several issues from the 1960s and 1970s either have stub-like summaries or no summaries at all. I simply note that several familiar characters still have no category mentioning their species.

      I know how to add categories, but I am not sure how to remove inapplicable ones.

    • No problem.

      Well, I'm not sure how to put it in English. There is a panel on the right side of the screen where you can type text, which propose you categories. Under it, you have a list of categories manually added this way. Many of the categories about citizens (all of them pretty much), origins, identity (all of them), powers (already provided by the power grid), occupations are automatically added as users have added them into the modules (like the one I showed you

      For example writing "Frost Giant" in the origin field will automatically add the category "Frost Giants". Same way for geneticist in occupation, who will add the categories "Scientists" and "Geneticists".

      The category "inapplicable" is just that we don't use "humans" anymore, because many species and races are humans. It's still in progress, due to the large number of characters with "humans" in their manually-added categories, or [[Human]] in their origin field.

  • To add to what Annabell mentioned below could you go back to your previous uploads and licence and add the move tag to them

    • I will see what I can do with the Hyborian Images first, though I no longer remember which handbook I used. They are over two years old.

      By the way, are my recent uploads problematic as well? I mostly copy Annabell's way of naming images, but I am unsure if this is common practice.

    • Your new uploads are perfect.

    • Good to know. My only previous experience in uploading images is in Wikipedia. It has very strict rules about licensing, but not about naming.

  • It's important when you create images like "File:Abominite1.jpg", "File:Abominite2.jpg", "File:Abominite3.jpg", and "File:Abominite4.jpg" that you use the proper Naming Conventions as well as make use of the Licensing (Required) dropdown feature before clicking "Upload File", so that they can legally be displayed on the wiki.

    This is at least the third time this year that you've been asked to do this properly and yet you either don't understand or don't care to follow the rules, so please take a moment to read both the aforementioned naming conventions, as well as this guide on how to tag articles to be properly moved. All of this only takes a few seconds if done in the first place rather than relying on others to clean up the confusion and if you follow the guidelines then it makes everything easier for the rest of the community to categorize and utilize the image thereafter. Also, categories should be added by filling out fields in the Image Template, not externally.

    Please reply so that you can confirm that you've read and understood these two issues. Thanks.

    • I appreciate your having added licensing to all the images from the other day as requested. It took me a little over two hours, but I've gone through and renamed them all to proper naming conventions and fixed their articles and galleries as well, that way you can see how it should have been done and thus be sure to name future uploads in a similar manner. Thanks.

  • Hi!

    Please add the categories in plural form.

    Thanks.

    Also, it's of common courtesy and minimal respect to respond to other users.
