  • 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.

  • There's currently still discussion (of sorts) going at Talk:Beware the Batman (TV Series) about how we deal with the remainder of the season.

  • Elseworlds are those stories publushed with an Elseworlds logo. Not "everything that isn't mainstream". Also, they're not Batman villains, Flash family members and whatnot because those don't exist.

  • Smallville has had a couple of parallel universes. We've decided to call them (Smallville: Whatever). So this would be called (Smallville: Alien).

  • It isn't helpful to add the Incomplete template to page after page. We know they're incomplete and tagging them doesn't really fix it. Time would be better spent actually trying to write up the history for some of them.

  • Before you go all out: they're currently categorized by incarnation. Adding just the Prime Earth Secret Society in the supercat is not helpful.

    • Fair enough.

      In any case, hold off on the SSoSV template for now.

  • Members templates should be singular.

    Also, I'm phasing out the Stubs category, but I haven't really figured out what to do with Character stubs yet. It's probably best to categorize them by character or team.
