It's constantly being vandalized with a fake oath. It's not just a single user doing it, and at least one seemed to think it was the real one. Despite the real oath being revealed, it's still happening. Is this enough reason for the page to be protected?
It happens with cases in which the hand really does matter such as with Green Lanterns. Specifically, Sinestro has always uses his left hand despite being trained to use his right. Since 'sinister' is supposed to mean left-handed and is another word for evil he should always appear left handed.
But often this is looked over but if it is confirmed on panel then you can put it in the trivia section and make sure you source it.
My, that was insignificant. Sure, it's done. After New 52 pages like that go up a bot will run the change. However, if the bot misses a page (not sure if it run through links like that) then thanks for letting us know. :D
Does this one need to be either re-framed or pruned hard?
Right now the text portion would limit inclusion to:
Members of Earth-based armed forces;
Characters who are most commonly recognized as being military; and
That is the primary recognition.
That seems at odds with how the category is being applied since it is including characters like Wonder Woman (4 versions), John Stewart (DCAU), Hro Talek, and a number of super-villains. As well as serving as a parent category for Category:Soldiers.
Personally, I'd prefer to see it brought to being limited to characters that are features in "military comics" such as Easy Company or the Blackhawks and have "Soldiers" pulled out of it so that it can cover the more general occupation without conflict.
As it stands, I understand that Military Characters was created to encompass all military characters that weren't already soldiers. And Soldiers would include infantrymen but also include a looser term for soldiers, such as gang members.
They aren't fleshed out and they were intended to be all inclusive. So it's a good idea that we sit down and flesh them out.
I don't agree that military characters should be limited to military comics, though they should be included. Characters like Captain Atom, who is a military pilot but not a soldier, would be cut off. I'll talk with the others to see what the best course of action should be.
Just to clarify the category has had the "No non-Earth military, no primarily super-watsis" since inception in 2006. (see here)
And I agree, "soldier" is pretty inclusive on "land" oriented militaries at it's broadest. I believe "marine" is as distinct but shouldn't fall under "soldier". "Sailor" tends to blanket navies, but there is a good chance of running into non-military uses of the term. And I really haven't run into anything that isn't nation specific for air forces, "airman" is close, I think, but I'm not sure.
to be honest ... I'm not really familiar with the Legion of Super-Heroes but they appeared in the latest Smallville Season 11 comic books. So, there are a few "background" characters of the Legion and I don't really know who they are or if I should add them to this wikia.
The blond one is Supergirl, there are also Dirk Morgna and Drake Burroughs (I guess) but I'm not sure about the chick with the wings and the guy with the blond beard. Ok, I'm not 100% sure if the other two are Dirk and Drake but ... what do you think? Who are the other two and should I add them?
EDIT: AAAAND sorry for crashing your message page. How can I minimize the pic? oO
Kind request: would you also like to tag any old cutout you come across with replacement needed? I mean the ones where everythingbutthe character is whitened out. They're old, copied from other sites, and because of screwy sourcing, often don't have the issue filled out.
Why did you revert my edit? Correct me if I'm wrong, but the rule is that no "Prime Earth" pages are to be made. Therefore, all of the new stuff after New 52 is to be put on the "New Earth" pages, and therefore should be phrased as daughter as opposed to niece on the disambiguation page because that is now canon. I'm not going to edit it again if it's a universal agreement among the Admins, but if it's not, I just don't understand why you reverted it.
I should posted earlier as to why I had to revert the edit. The rule is that no Prime Earth pages are to be made for Bat-family related characters until an issue among the admins is solved.
In the meantime all information included from these books should be maintained on the comic book pages themselves until we are able to have a spot for them on whatever page is decided upon.
Because of this interim period a lot of information on New Earth pages begins to get confusing and messy. Such as characters like Black Canary's lineage and Barbara being the daughter/niece of James Gordon. So to keep everything clean and concise only New Earth information is to be put on New Earth pages. Prime Earth (for Batman family members) are on hiatus.
To clarify, the INFOBOX cannot contain any Prime Earth information, but the HISTORY section needs to be maintained underneath a Post-Flashpoint template, so that we have it when we're ready to make the change.
Thanks for the quick reply. Sorry for the slight hostility, but I'm used to reversions for apparent lame reasons on the Marvel Database, and what I added was canonical and most up to date, so it annoyed me. Anyway, sorry for the hostility. Hopefully, this is all decided soon because it's confusing and screwing up the website for readers.
