Wait, what? I had no clue that I was going over your stuff. Sometimes I'll check certain pages to see if I have my facts right about something and change a typo, or I'll read the synopsis for a comic I just didn't feel like buying but still wanted to know what happened and correct something. I had no clue that I was correcting your typos. That's kind of weird though. How long has it been going on?
So you're saying you blocked me for making edits that technically did apply to the pages I put them on and for leaving comments on blogs that are designed specifically for users to express their opinions and put other random comments on. That is why you banned me?
Wait, so now you're saying you blocked me for responding to you EXCLUSIVELY on my messages because you accused me of something without showing me what you were speaking of, then you made an unintelligent remark, which I replied to. So in essence you blocked me for using light humor to brighten the mood of a private matter you were posting on my page.
Ain't no such thang as a private matter on a wiki.
It's about the quality of the content. If it appears to me that you are not inclined to put the quality of the content first, then I am not inclined to give you any leeway.
I encourage you to just think whatever you want, though, because I have a mountain of rice that's getting cold, and I like it to be warm, and I'm not that excited to watch you go through ye olde "I'm going to go to the people above you and bring down hellfire!" routine.
So, if you're upset, that's fine. Make good edits for good reasons, and I'll leave you alone for the rest of your life. If you'd rather quixotically crusade for vengeance after a mere two hours of being forced to fiddle around somewhere else on the internet, then do it as loudly and proudly as you might - but don't expect me to stick around to hear it.
I never said anything about going to anyone above you, for all I know there is no one above you, I just want you to realize that blocking me for replying in a manner that mirrored yours makes no sense. I couldn't care less about running a "crusade" against you I just want you to see my point and what it looked like you were doing it for from my point of view.
"...for all I know there is no one above you.." Even though you're trying to defend yourself, but that line (according to my perspective) makes you somewhat of a dick. You were blocked because you make some edits that doesn't correspond like adding "New 52 Characters" to a comic page. I am admin on another site and don't tolerate the kind of BS people like you are making for mischief or to the extreme cases being outright a-holes with huge egos.
I understand your point of view.
I could have given a better explanation for what you needed to do differently on those edits.
The edit on Crime Syndicate and Bizarro/Parasite issues. Comic, Character, and Team pages automatically add the appropriate Era category (which is what you were adding) to them. You don't need to add them manually.
So, I reverted those edits because they were unnecessary based on the fact that they were already in their appropriate categories. And I reverted them because they were also not technically correct. A comic is not a character, just because it contains a character's name in the title.
If you're not clear about what I was talking about with the badges - I believe you are aware that certain achievement badges require you to make edits in certain areas on the wiki.
You made several (just enough to get a badge!) edits on blogs - including long-dead blogs - that added nothing to the conversation. This is a behaviour that is not new to us. It's a common practice among new members who are, for some reason, really easily excited by the idea of getting a little picture as a prize. That's basically USING the wiki to stroke your own ego. If you want badges, earn them with valuable, high-quality edits.
Lastly, the formatting on this piece of junk doesn't really work on here, but I don't think many would fault me for taking it to mean that you'd love to sit in the corner for a while.
It's ok, I understand that I got a little over the top there and now I understand the difference between certain categories for pages. Drgyn, why would you take it upon yourself to post a comment on a matter that had already been solved. Hatebunny and I had come to an understanding over what happened and the issue had been resolved. Yet you hypocritically call me an a-hole for making a comment that was honestly true. The only two admins I really know of are Hatebunny and Tupka217 so I don't know if there is anyone above them. Why would you come from your own (practically dictatorship from what you've told me) put this on my page. So according to my perspective that entire comment just made YOU sound like a dick.
We're a pretty tightly knit group.
Tupka and I have a tendency to be a bit zealous with editors who are making bad edits. Usually, it's because the edits we consider "bad" affect the categories on the wiki, and that's a problem for us, because the whole point of the wiki is to arrange accurate information in a useful way - difficult as that sometimes is.
You were right in thinking that I was saying something stupid in my very first comment to you. It was meant as a joking way of warning not to make what we call "empty edits" - i.e. meaningless or unproductive edits. I had no issue with your "that sounds painful" response, because it suggested to me that you understood I was not actually planning to mail my foot into your ass. The postage would be excessive.
If we had left it at that, we probably could have gone on our merry ways.
Thank you for uploading new content to the DC Database project!
We have lots of images in our database, 118,937 in fact, and in order to keep them organized we use a system of naming, categories and licensing added to each.
Please review our Naming Conventions for Images. Images are categorized by name, so a descriptive name rather than a string of numbers is important.
As a guide, look what other images in a character's gallery are called, and continue with the same name and number. If you upload a first image of a character, use "[Name] [Universe] 001". Ignore the Universe designation if it is a New Earth character.
Issue covers should be given at least the title of the series, the volume and the number. A name similar to the issue is preferred: "Title Vol 1 1". Textless covers should be called "Title Vol 1 1 Textless". Files that do not indicate the issue number will be deleted.
Images should be no less than 300px wide, unless no bigger image is available.
Add the Image Template to the images you upload. This is mandatory. Fill it in as detailed here, or below.
Selecting the proper license is vital to properly maintaining our images. Please choose the license which best describes the image you are uploading. The most commonly used are 'Comic Single Panel' and 'Comic Cover', respectively.
Other fields that should be filled in: Issue, Subject1, Artist. Add Source if you've taken it from a different site. If you've taken it from a different site and don't know the issue, DO NOT UPLOAD IT.
I intended on either adding a picture of Kyle Rayner using his White Lantern ring and the full Emotional Spectrum as either his character picture or on the more recent part of his page. Would that be okay?
If you want to change the character image, you need to go to the talk page and start a discussion about it (which, ideally will end with everyone agreeing) before you do change it.
Now, your image:
First you need to make sure you name it properly, which means that it needs to be something like "Kyle Rayner White Lantern 001.jpg" or something like that. We have a whole article somewhere about how to name files... and if you do it wrong, someone will quite likely automatically post it to your wall, so... don't do it wrong.
To upload a picture to the wiki, you can use the "add a photo" button on the side of most pages. However, we also require that all images have a properly filled out Image Template. You need to copy the "empty syntax" (you can see it on the page I just linked), and paste it into the blank page after you've uploaded your image.
You can see (hopefully) how to fill out each field by looking at the instructions underneath the empty syntax on the image template page.
Once it's up on the wiki, you can link it on the talk page discussion that I mentioned earlier, so everyone can see it and go "yeah, that's a good choice."
... Seems like a lot of work, but when you get used to doing it, it's easy as pie... sweet, sweet, image pie.
