  • I'm working on Reiser' history and I've almost finished it up to his involvement with the Titans. I'm not sure how to write the summary of the events that take place in the second story of Convergence: Superman Vol 1 2.

    Anyway, I was wondering whether or not it would be frowned upon if I was to just copy paste the summary in the Convergence issue. From what I can see, it is accurate (I compared it directly to the issue).

    I was going to ask Hatebunny (he was the one that wrote the synopsis), but he hasn't been active for a while.

    Your thoughts on the matter?

    • Copy and pasting is usually tricky subject matter, so I usually suggest against it.

      I'm not sure how long the history section you're writing is, but it doesn't really need a single comic synopsis in it anyway. That whole story in Convergence: Superman can be boiled down to two sentences at most for a history section:

      "One of Reiser's early acts of heroism was attempting to stop a robbery but, due to his monstrous form, he was incorrectly assumed to be a villain by his superhero roommate the Alpha Centurion, who he had yet to tell his secret." Or something.

      It doesn't need the play by play of bullets flying, him running away, blah blah blah.

    • Ok. That makes sense. I understand how copying and pasting can be difficult. That's why I wanted to ask if it would be acceptable.

      Speaking of which, am I able to copy what you said? It pretty much sums up what I am trying to say.

    • Yeah, no problem at all! You have my permission. And thanks for asking!

  • Hey there, I was having a chat with Tupka in the hopes of utilizing the "titans" URL for a wiki covering the upcoming TV series Titans. He didn't take issue with it, but suggested I consult the other admins. Would you have a problem with this?

  • Hello! Clearly the edit I made to Violet Paige was wrong somehow, but I don't understand why. Is it just a matter of sources? If so, why was the trivia entry also deleted?

    • Hey, I appreciate you following up, I should've said something in the edit summary,

      It's not that your edit was wrong or factually incorrect in any way, it's more about conciseness and housekeeping. Items like unnamed gear and weapons tend not to get mentioned in the equipment and weapons section. Usually, that spot goes to stuff like Riddler's Staff or Penguin's Umbrella or, in a sense, big stuff. (This isn't always the case, sometimes unnamed items can get a mention if they're, say, vital to the character but not important enough for a page. Gray area stuff, you'll-know-it-when-you-see-it stuff, y'know?)

      Also, the trivia about her interaction with Kate Kane seemed negligible. From what I've read, and I've been following the series, their interactions haven't really accumulated to anything "trivia worthy", again that section's usually reserved for slightly bigger things in terms of who, what, where, why the character is so it doesn't get bloated with tiny little details.

      So, just to restate, there wasn't anything wrong or bad about your edit, it was just a little too small to deserve mentions like that. Does that make sense?

    • I guess that makes sense, even if it seems a tiny bit arbitrary. But if those are the rules, okay.

      Thank you for the info!

  • Hey, Harold. When you create non-comics character or team pages, could you add the "20xx ... Debuts" categories. The templates only do that automatically if First Appearance is a comic. Thanks.

    • Yeah, sure. I usually don't think of it, but thanks for pointing that out. I'll get into the habit!

  • Are you still reading Forager? I just read the last one and have no idea what's going on anymore. Besides that, I don't know if we're supposed to recognize any of those characters or not. I'm not as up on my Kirby stuff as I thought.

    • I'll try to get it read soon. The only reason I hesitate moving to New Earth is that the rest of the Young Animal books pretty clearly don't take place on New Earth. Even the backup feature seems to be set on Prime Earth. I'm wondering if we're reading to much into something just meant to showcase Kirby's creations.

    • I finally got to this a couple weeks ago. Not sure what I think now. There’s probably still some characters to add but I think I mostly got it. Also, in the backup, did Midnight die?

  • Hey, hey! I just wanted to drop a line with a major thumbs up attached! You've been on an epic roll, and you've really been inspiring me lately to improve my own contributions to the wiki. Well done, friend.  :)

    • Hey! Oh boy, thanks so much! I'm just glad to hear you feel inspired! That's such an awesome compliment.

      I've seen you doing great work too! You've been here long enough that I always know your contributions are quality stuff, I should've said something to praise you sooner! :)

  • Hey you're doing a great job on the Young Animal stuff. Just thought you deserved some props for kicking ass lately.

    • Thanks, Kyle! Honestly, my face lit up, I appreciate the compliment. Young Animal stuff is right up my alley so I like just cranking out the information.
