  • Hi, I've noticed that many Prime Earth characters have the same height and weight when they first debuted for example Solomon Grundy http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Solomon_Grundy_%28Earth_2%29?diff=1829048&oldid=1008483 Did they really re-use the old heights and weights? The same was done with Kalibak with him being 6'9" in Prime Earth (which is impossible since he towers over the 7 feet tall Big Barda).

    Can you confirm that they are indeed official and that they weren't just the work of some random editor?

  • The reason I put the Prime Earth version where Lois was is because SforHope recommended it. You can read about it on his message wall.

    • The DC Encyclopedia isn't actually put together by DC; it's DK or something. So while it is useful, I wouldn't say it reflects DC's editing staff. It also is almost immediately outdated. I agree that Lois should be the top spot for now but it also seems like Earth 2 is losing its prominence.

    • I agree with Kyle on keeping Lois as the top New 52 spot at least until Prime Earth Red Tornado's role in the New 52 post-rebirth grows larger.

  • Dalek, you know Tim Drake's Teen Titans are gone, right? Your explanation that they lasted 5 years and the current team has only a few months to maintain the image of the already defunct team does not make sense. Just look at the list of current members, which is different from the image of the defunct team you want to keep.

    • Your rule suggestion, Shadzane, seems the same as the rule already in place. It just seems we're different in terms of how liberal we consider "last week" to be.

      Again, I'm fine with keeping the new team roster image. I see the reasons to have either, it doesn't mean that much to me.

    • In regards to FabioEscorpiao's question about how long you might have to wait to be allowed to change the alias and/or profile image of a character or team, Tupka once told me to give a change that looked like it was going to be permeant a year before making any changes to the alias or profile image.

  • I undid one of your edits because you added something to the AltID field on a disambig. You didn't do anything wrong, we just don't really use the AltID field anymore. It's a relic of an earlier time when disambigs had no words on them so we had to put a few key phrases at the top. We still use it sparingly, but only in situations where a bunch of different people have had the same mantle. Putting Lazlo Valentin as the AltID on our Professor Pyg article does nothing, because 1) the name "Lazlo Valentin" is already mentioned and 2) It's a redirect to the Professor Pyg article with no separate information. It also bumps content further down the page. No big deal, just letting you know.

  • Hey Dalek, I'd suggest holding off on the association categories, I'm about to make a forum post about them on whether or not they're necessary.

    But aside from that:

    1. Everything doesn't need the association category. You've added them to movies from disambiguation pages, which is really unnecessary.
    2. From my understanding the category is only for characters closely associate with said hero.

    Thanks man! :)

    • I can hold off on adding the association categories until after you make your forum post. The only movie I added directly to a association category was the wonder woman. I created subcategories for the other movies as was done for the batman and superman association categories. I only added the wonder woman one directly to the wonder woman category because there is currently 1 wonder woman movie so there is no need for a wonder woman movie subcategory.

  • The Prime Earth template is necessary for pages that are specifically on Prime Earth. It was created to direct readers to the "previous" incarnation of that character so as not to confuse anyone. As such William Batson (Earth 5) is not William Batson (Prime Earth) and does not have a direct previous incarnation due to the New 52 changes.

    Edit: Also if you could find for me where it says WHIZ Media in the book I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advanced.

    • He says WHIZ Live, not WHIZ Media. Media is what you entered. The city is Fawcett, not Faucet. And that is a discussion for the Billy's talk page.

    • I originally entered WHIZ Media because that is what was used on this wiki's synopsis for the Multiversity: Thunderworld Adventures issue. When I went back and checked the issue like you had asked me to I discovered that the actual name that was used was WHIZ Live and not WHIZ Media. Whoever wrote the synopsis for issue made a mistake or got the name from a source other then the issue itself.

      The misspelling of Faucet in my previous response is an error on my part.

  • Hey Dalek, I was looking at some of the images you uploaded and sourced recently, and I have a few notes:

    • For regular covers, we don't use the subject or universe fields. Those are usually only for textless covers.
    • Also, in most cases the source field should be the issue (when sourcing covers), and not the wiki you downloaded it from. (I think...., because in reality it's redundant as all the images are fairuse and it doesn't matter where you got it from as no one snipped it, screenshot it, etc. ).

    Happy Editing!

    • Small clarification... Covers do get one subject, "None".

      So a average cover image would get:

      {{DC Database:Image Template
      | License                 = Comic Cover
      | ImageType               = Cover Art
      | Description             = {{F|Title Vol 2 41}}
      
      | PreviousCover           = Title Vol 2 40.jpg
      | NextCover               = Title Vol 2 42.jpg
      
      | Source                  = Title Vol 1 21
      
      | Subject1                = None
      
      | CoverArtist1            = Penciler
      | CoverArtist2            = Inker
      | CoverArtist2            = Colorist
      
      | Notes                   = 
      | Trivia                  = 
      }}
      

      While the textless version would get:

      {{DC Database:Image Template
      | License                 = Comic Cover
      | ImageType               = Textless
      | ImageType2              = Character or Team
      | Description             = {{F|Character(s) or Team(s)}}
      
      | Issue                   = Title Vol 1 41
      
      | Universe                = As appropriate
      | Subject1                = 1st character, team, or item
      | Subject2                = 2nd
      | Subject3                = 3rd
      .
      .
      .
      | SubjectN                = Nth
      
      | Penciler1               = Artist
      | Inker1                  = Artist
      | Colourist1              = Artist
      | Letterer1               = Rarely used
      
      | Notes                   = 
      | Trivia                  = 
      }}
      

      Also worth noting:

      • {{f}} can hold up to 3 items and when they are story elements - characters, teams, items, etc - they should not have parenthetical, e.g. "Jamses Gordon" no "James Gordon (Earth-Two)".
      • The ImageType "Cover Art" should be replaced with "Variant Cover" if the image is a fully dressed variant.

    • Byfield, that's what I meant by regular covers don't use the subject field. I count "none" as just filling it.

      But thanks for clarifying it for Dalek, who I might have confused by not coming right out and saying that in my notes.

    • Empty history sections in the character infobox template automatically place pages into Category:Character History Needed. Tagging them with {{History Needed}} is redundant. Generally that is used if the infobox template on the page does not automaticallt generate a "<Type> History Needed" category.
    • {{Superman Villain}} automatically adds Category:Superboy Villains. You don't need to redundantly add it a second time just to make sure.
    • Banner templates then navigation boxes at the end of page.

    My bad there...

    • And don't overkill it. One villain template per character, for the original opponent. More are needed only if they were "adopted" by other heroes, or became bigger.

  • The Justice League 3000 team are clones of the original Justice League. Which means they would in fact share the same name of said person. The people who volunteered their bodies for the project, are gone now. (So I guess Superman's page name would be changed to Clark Kent (Justice League 3000), though we all know his Kryptonian name is Kal-El) I forgot which issue this is explained in but, it is clearly stated that the volunteers body's acted as templates, and we're wiped clean, efficiently erasing every that made those people, those people. Including their DNA.

    Their DNA is now overwritten by the Leaguer's DNA. Which means it doesn't matter who those people were, their names could be used as aliases in the infobox at the best now.

    They grew a another person out a blank template.

    Look in the first issue of Justice League 3000 #1 around the middle when they're all back at Cadmus Labs they refer to each other by Bruce, Diana, Clark, Hal, and Barry.

    Even the Wonder Twins in later issues refer to them as so.

    And one last thing, Ariel Masters states that their could be a possibility that Hal has some of the Atom's DNA in him. That's false, as in Justice League 3000 #2 Locus shrunk him with her powers. She was just thinking out loud, that wasn't confirmed, and is incorrect.

    In Justice League 3000 #3 Locus even states she shrunk Hal down.
