Hi Killer kev! I'm Mike from FANDOM's Community Development Team. Nice work on the wiki! Looks really good! I noticed that the wiki background could use some work, so I put together one over on my sandbox wiki. It's larger scale so it fits the height of most screens and blends in with the background colour for the wiki as well. Let me know if you want to use it, and I'll upload it over here!
My bad. It's just that it's quicker to rollback edits (which doesn't give you an option of providing an explanation) rather than undoing them. Your edit to Polaris' page was undone bc gifs have no place here, except for on user pages, if that's where the user would like to put them.
Hello, I think someone should fix something, I mean when I search “Sonya” nothing appears but it does appear when I type “Sonia”. Also, when you click on “Characters” there’s written Sonia but it should be Sonya ahahha sorry for all of this, don’t even text me back if you think this is kinda silly but whatever ahahh. Also, it’d be cool if you could add “Hellfire Club” when you click “Universe”. :)
Hey. No need to apologies. You were right to contact me. I missed that. Fixed. Now, when you search "Sonya Simonson", it will take you to Dreamer's page. The navigation has also been updated as well (i.e. Sonia => Sonya). I've also added the Hellfire Club to the universe section of the navigation header
What do you mean by current formatting?
I felt that Skills and Abilities were the same thing, and that in the The characters Powers List, their powers came before their Skills, so it just made sense to change the current formatting.
By current formatting, I am referring to the manner in which all the pages are displayed. Skills and Abilities is apart of that formatting, though they do not mean the same. They often referred to what the mutants can do as abilities. They use powers and abilities interchangeably, meaning that having a section that says 'Powers and Abilities' is redundant because it's the same as saying 'Powers and Powers' or 'Abilities and Abilities'. They're used to refer to the same thing within the series. Skills on the other hand would refer to something like Thunderbird's military training. Hope that clears things up.
Powers coming before the Skills in the bio is purely happenstance. We learned about Thunderbird's powers first, so that's what was added to the page first. But I'll still look into this. I want to see which term is used more frequently (power or ability). That'll determine which one will be used on the pages
Hey, I just saw that you reverted my edits on Blink's page. My question is why? The page has many inconsistencies, mainly with her name and superhero names so I edited it. In one paragraph she is Clarice, then the next she is Blink, and not just her. Other characters share the same inonsistencies.
Your edits were reverted bc you changed the names. When writing summaries or pretty much anything on this wiki, their mutant codenames (e.g. Thundeboird, Polaris and Eclipse) are used when they're out in the field, rescuing or fighting. Any other time, we go by their actual name. It's not an inconsistency when all pages are intentionally formatted that way. We decided on doing that some time ago
Hey, quick question(s): is there a way for us to change the format of the appearance of each character? Like everything they do in that particular episode from grabbing wrists to asking an stating the exact same words supposed to be added there?
It's hard to explain really, but it's like summarizing the articles. Like in Lauren's page, you can see that when she appeare in a certain episode, almost all the things that she did is written there, from grabbing a wrist to saying/quoting what the character said on screen. I'm just asking or rather suggesting if we can summarize it.
Ah. You're referring to their episode summaries. All summaries are written in detail here. Of course, every single word or action isn't necessary, but detailing every scene a character had per episode is the goal.
Hello again. I have another question. I saw Sonya's page and hers was in past tense ("was a character...".) while Ed Weeks was in present tense ("is a character..."). So, are the deceased characters' page supposed to be in past tense or not?
Why did you remove Pain Inducement from each sister's list of abilities? That ability was shown in the most recent episode. Also I had ordered each of their abilities by chonological order of appearance (Telepathy, Empathy, Mind Control and Pain Inducement)
Also in the Physical Appearance section, why did you change dirty blonde hair back to blonde? In the newest episode, when Sage pulls up the Mutant Profiles for the three, if you zoom in you can see that it says "Dirty Blonde" against hair color.
I am very invested in these perticular characters (anything Emma Frost related really :P) and I would never put improper and incorrect information.
The removing of Pain Inducement was unintentional. I was merely restoring the page to a previous point as a faster mean to undoing several edits made by one of the anons. Pain Inducement got caught in the crossfire of that.]
Regarding the dirty blonde bit, I only changed it bc in show, their hair is fairly light. But if the show is calling to dirty blonde, then so be it. I'll be sure to add those back.
Also, was the edit on the Frost Sisters page that removed the members part of the Infobox intentional as well? I think we should have a row reserved for that in the Group Infobox as it is much more intuitive and makes it easier to glean information regarding to the members of said group at a glance. It is something that many wikias do with their group/organization info boxes.
That was removed intentionally. I want to prevent the infobox from running too long and it's redundant information. There's a specif section where you can find that same information about members. I know a lot of wikis do that, but I've always found it to be redundant to have members in the infobox as well as a section for it.
