  • I need your help. I rely on you to help maintain a sense of continuity across this site. You've created a lot of new pages recently, and I'm currently too busy to keep up with all of them. There's several recurring problems I need you to work on.

    • The pages, especially the character template, need spaces. It makes no difference to the end result but makes a world of difference to editors. You could write the entire page on a single line of code and the published page could look exactly the same. But to someone editing it would look incomprehensible. Spaces help keep it look neat and organized.
    • Don't forget the "Character is from the Whichever Universe series Whatever." at the beginning and Stub tag at the end. Unless it's a page on a minor subject, the Stub tag lets others know it should be expanded.
    • You've been using a lot of standard links in the pages. Unfortunately, there's quite a few mistakes with them, like misspellings and missing parenthesis. That's why we have the Template:C, it formats the link automatically so you only need to worry about spelling the character's name. It also makes editing easier to read. I have noticed you use them mixed with the standard links.
    • Use complete sentences for the background section. I admit I wasn't very consistent with this when I first started but this is something I've been working on as I find it.
    • External links go with the more popular sites first. For characters it's Marvel first, then Wikipedia, and finally other Fandom wikis like Marvel Database, the Agents of SMASH Wiki, etc. It's easy to do this by copy and pasting the links from the character page from another series then changing the Marvel Database link since the rest will basically be the same. I would also prefer that for Wikipedia and Marvel Database we use the [[wikipedia:Spider-Man|Spider-Man]] and [[w:c:marvel:Peter Parker (Earth-616)|Peter Parker (Earth-616)]] format. I've been trying to change the links to this format across the site.
    • When moving pages avoid double redirects as it breaks the flow. Changing Dr. Smarter to Dr. Smartyr and then to Smartyr broke the flow so clicking on Dr. Smarter just took me to the Dr. Smartyr redirect page.

    Thank you for the help.

  • I am not and English isn't my native language either. If I have problems, I use internet dictionaries.

  • It is unbelievable that Stan Lee is gone. Without him and his cameos Marvel will never be same again. I that his younger brother Larry Lieber will never replace him in making cameos in Marvel movies because Stan Lee was actually irreplaceable.

  • In general, when renaming a page leave a redirect. Like with the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse page, there was the {{smf}} tag plus several other pages that linked to the original name that all became broken links. Unless you go and edit every page that linked to the original name, the only reason to not leave a redirect is if you're going to create another page under that name (like when I had to turn "Carnage" into a disambiguation page when renaming "Carnage" when "Carnage" aired) or if the original name is misspelled in such a way no one besides the original creator would misspell it that way.

    • Sorry about that Art. For as long as I'e been working on wikis there's still things that I'm learning.

  • You're a good editor and always pointing out content issues. So I made you a Content Editor so you can do the things you're always asking about like renaming pages and deleting bad photos.
