  • Hi!

    Thanks for your massive edits on Lomen (Earth-616) page.

    Just a few tips:

    • Better use {{r|*****}} for your refs (the other way isn't bad, I used it a lot for external links, but for internal links, better use the classic way, more "readable")
      • That's a personal advice, but if an handbook entry is about the characters of te page, you can simply add the ref, with the precision only for other entries.
    • No need to add "alien" in the origins, given we already have dakkamite in the origin field who automatically add the .
    • Some fields such as identity, citizenship or marital status require a simple answer corresponding to things added to the Module:Citizenship. You have to add a field such as "citizenship2" to add references.
    • On the "unknown" stuff, I prefer to not add anything, but if the entries clearly told they're unknown, I tend to believe that's all right

    Also, on some occasions, I think you should refrain a little bit your add of references, using references that englobes the thing you want to prove (if there is such references of course). I don't know much about this character, but I think you might be exagerating the use of references (around 60 for many of those) on some occasions (but to be honest, it's really good to see a page that much well-referenced).

    For example, you sometimes add a Handbook reference in a paragraph, causinh the need to re-reference the rest of the paragraph, but if the handbook isn't bringing new information, it isn't required and the comics (but like I said, I haven't read most of those entries so it is possible that none of those books contain a complete telling of the event, and in this case, you're right to act this way, but at this point, I have to tell you it seems excessive). Same way if two handbooks state the same, no need to add both of them.


    Also, as you seems to possess the Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe, but our wikia doesn't have any page for it: Could you add those ?

    Thanks in advance, and for your work, have a good day !

  • Just a tip: when naming images, focus on the most important subject of the image. In other words, instead of uploading files with huge names containing everything that appears in there, upload it with the name of the subject you're going the image for. Take a look at this file I recently renamed to see what I'm talking about.

    • That's an interesting point, for I'm seeing a fuzzy border here. Say, Ultron is intelligent, thus a character, no discussion here. Drone-controlled items like Doctor Doom's Hawk Scanner are items. Other robots with just a few appearances aren't as easy to pinpoint as either people or things. Doctor Doom's Servo-Guards show independent thought and initiative by themselves (like one of them suggesting a change of plans while kidnapping Terrax, FF#258). Doctor Doom's androids from the article I created today have shown the ability to learn, evolve and develop a culture. In some cases like Guardian Robots, it's hard to know whether they have any kind or mind or not. I personally see the Doombots (Dr Doom's dopplegangers) as sentient - one of them can take all the decisions needed to rule a country and no-one notices it's not a person! Maybe all these answers are written in some guidelines. Can you pinpoint me to that link? Thanks, --Skippy Farlstendoiro (talk) 18:03, August 19, 2016 (UTC)

    • I'll later open a thread or something like that to discuss this subject. When this happens, you can join and give your opinion if you want (I'll let you know when I open the discussion).

      About the Doombots, they are programmed to act and think as if they are really Doom, only behaving like what they really are on his presence. They are replicas, more extensions of Doom than anything else and are always portrayed as items instead of individuals, the only exception being the Avenger Doombot. The Doombots' case is comparable with that of the LMDs.

  • If you're going to insist on creating profiles based on characters that are clearly topical references please be sure that you are specifying them as such in the history synopsis per:

    Glossary:Topical_Reference

    Example:

    Gerald Ford (Earth-616)

    • Thanks for the tip and for asking so politely. I understand you may refer to John Wayne (Earth-616); I'd ask you to give a look at my new edit to see if this is what you mean.

      I'd also like to ask: Would this apply to Earth-616's versions of Marvel staff like Jack Kirby (Earth-616)? I'd think Arthur Adams (Earth-616) would not be topical, as he is not a Marvel artist but a minion of an extraterrestrial villain. --Skippy Farlstendoiro (talk) 16:48, April 19, 2016 (UTC)

    • You nailed it. Great job.

      Marvel creators are all exempt from the topical reference rules for the most part. Their Earth-616 versions all exist in the Modern Age and are depicted as being in their "prime" during this era. Particularly Jack Kirby himself, who appears in modern age stories that have been published after his death in 1994.

      Per the entry on Topical references:

      "The only individuals that are exempt from becoming topical references are Marvel Comics creators who make appearances in various stories. For example Marvel Comics forefathers Stan Lee and Jack Kirby both make an appearance in Fantastic Four #10. The pair have made regular appearances in Marvel publications over the years. All current editions of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe identify them by name when recounting their interactions with characters in the Marvel Universe. As such one should always consider appearances of Marvel creators like Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Chris Claremont, and John Byrne to be considered factual as opposed to topical. Their Earth-616 counterparts all make their appearances in their prime, and age according to the Sliding Timescale."

      The only difficulty with this is some creators (such as Carl Burgos and John Romita) are shown as living in both the Modern Age and in past eras (notably during the 1940s in the two examples referenced above) No real explanations there. Marvel certainly hasn't explained this. Perhaps Marvel creators on Earth-616 are immortal. It's certainly something that is up to interpretation.

  • I was wondering if you could add the category; http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Doctor_Doom%27s_Equipment to some of the pages

      Loading editor
    • Looks like you've beaten me to it. As I will probably add more entries in the future (but not immediately), I'll remember to include this category. Btw, I've seen a Category called "Doombots" that seems to include robots built by Dr Doom; although the term Doombot is supposed to be restricted to Doom's 'droid dopplegangers. Should this be changed in your opinion? --Skippy Farlstendoiro (talk) 14:44, March 30, 2016 (UTC)

    • I don't know enough about that sorry, I just knew the Doctor Doom Equipment Category existed. I would speak with Admin. Also just wanted to say great work on the pages so far.

  • It is a violation of Wikia's Terms and Conditions to copypaste an entire article to a new name rather than have the original article renamed and moved so as to retain the entire existing edit history. Please refrain from doing so in the future. Thanks.

    • Thank you, I did not know that it was a violation, nor I was sure of how to rename and move it; always found that difficult. I'll refrain from doing it in the future. You refer to Pacifier Robot, I assume - I created it long ago thinking it should be an item, but robots tend to use Character Template. May I please ask you to give a look at Machines of Doom and see if I'm doing something wrong there too? --Skippy Farlstendoiro (talk) 14:39, March 29, 2016 (UTC)

    • To request an article be renamed you simply insert {{subst:Move|New Name Here}} above the existing template code, and just be sure to support any move requests with a quick comment on the associated article's talk/discussion page.

      Machines of Doom looks much better so far, though the name should probably be "Marvel Super Heroes Campaign Set: Machines of Doom". One sec and I'll upload a cover image for it.

  • Hey, Just in case you didn't know, the sites Naming Conventions for images also includes the source in the file name. I know its a pain, but could I ask you to go back and movetag some of the images you've already uploaded as well as add this in future uploads.

    Thanks

  • Hey I have been working on the Jeryn Hogarth (Earth-616) I was wondering if you could help fill in the gap when he and Luke Cage worked in Chicago in Cage Vol 1?

  • Heya :) We at Wikia are trying to get some opinions about Age of Ultron. Since you're a super fan and one of the Marvel Database's most active recent contributors, we thought you'd be the perfect person to ask!

    We'd love to know what you think about the new characters joining the Avengers cast and/or the cool weapons that the Avengers smash around town with. Just give us a line or two about what you'r most looking forward to when it comes to these two topics. You can just reply to this message, and I'll put your thoughts into the hopper at Wikia Central!

    Thanks a lot!

  • hey there - I don't think adding mere invocations as appearances is very useful. Ater all, those characters don't actually appear just because they are invoked. How about adding them as mentions? - apparently the mentioned-template has been modified so thatthey don't show up under appearances anymore.

    • Oh, and one more question: If I want to see Raggadorr's appearances, I go to here but say I want to see Raggadorr's "mentioned". How can I access to that? I tried a little bit around here myself, reading the help and stuff, but didn't find an answer. Skippy Farlstendoiro (talk) 17:20, April 28, 2014 (UTC)

    • perfect. now when you add it like this, check a the bottom - you'll find a link to Raggador's mentions.
