  • In general, as a rule, we don't use information that precedes the publication of the book it comes from. Solicits are unreliable.

    However, I don't want to undo your edit, because if/when it does turn up in #35, I don't want to have to revert my reversion.

    So, in future, wait for the book.

  • Hey, I noticed you're not filling out the image template on the collection covers properly.

    I've fixed one for you: http://dc.wikia.com/index.php?title=File%3AAll-Star_Western_Guns_and_Gotham_TPB.jpg&diff=1469203&oldid=1469187

    Have another look over Help:Cover Art Images if you need to.

    • Okay, I'll complete that going forward, and fix my previous mistakes once I finally finish all of the New 52 TPBs lol. I take it because of the template that the Issue field was replaced by Source? I was kinda confused by the difference in the two. Source seems a little generic to means what book it came from, but then again I can see Source being a more proper fit than Issue.

        Loading editor
    • For certain categorization reasons (which are explained in the help article I linked), the source field is used instead of the issue field on all "dressed" cover images (as opposed to textless covers and interior art).

    • ... I just want to make sure you're planning to go back and fill out all of those images you've uploaded properly... because right now you've left them 90% blank.

  • I don't know if you're doing this already, but I assume if you made a typo in the page name that you aren't. You can just use the list I make on the List of This Week's Comics, click the red link for the page you want to make, and then you'll be sent to the edit-page for that article, without having to worry about getting the name right (unless I got the name wrong).

    • I'm combing through that code in hopes to help you, and I THINK I may see where the code is missing a "}}". Right above <!--BEGIN BACK TO COMIC SELECTION-->, there is a <br/>, and theoretically, before the <br/> is where you put the "}}". But I haven't gone through the whole thing yet.

    • It's not missing a }}, it has one too many }}s.

  • I noticed you had some issues with the Day field, so I figure I'll explain it all for you, so you know how it works (it's pretty complicated).

    So, {{FutureDOW}} and {{PastDOW}} are very elaborate templates that use a given day, month, and year to tell you which day of the week that date is.

    For example, I was born on Sunday, August 17th, 1986. If I use PastDOW with that date, I get... Sunday. So, that works.

    And if I use FutureDOW on an upcoming date... let's say... September 18th 2014, we get... Thursday.

    Then we've got {{FPDOW}} that determines which of the two templates to use based on which year is given.

    So, how do those relate to the Day field? Very tangentially.

    Basically, the Day field does NOT add to the category for the day you enter into the field. It adds to the category for the nearest Wednesday to the day you entered.

    So, if I were to insert say... August 28th, 2014 into the field, it would end up in the category for August 27th instead.

    Since almost every comic for the last 35 years or so has come out on Wednesday, this shouldn't be a problem.

    Of course, some don't (like last year around New Years). In any case, the Category that it gets put into is a Week Category, not a Day Category. It is meant to represent the week of whatever the nearest Wednesday is. So, anything that comes out that week, regardless of what day it came out, will be put into that category.

    I've toyed with the idea of having a note added that will represent the actual release date, but in most cases, the week category and the actual date of release will match.

    • Makes sense! I figure if you wanted to, you could added the day next to the Month and Year under the Image in the Comic Template for easy date finding, but the way I've done it for finding non-Wednesday issues is just go to edit and look at the Day field. And I was having a serious derp-moment with the trouble I had, I added Pubyear to circumvent the 2 month jumpback and then just incorrectly made it the year I was avoiding lol. Thanks for the info though! If you ever want to feed me some of the back-end template code and explain how it works to any extent, I'd love to learn. I've been getting really interested in databases and information-processing in school and this has been my outlet.

  • Please don't make Prime Earth pages for characters unless you're willing to do all of the work required to split that character from their New Earth page. It certainly takes a lot more than just cutting and pasting from the old page.

    The galleries contain images that need to be moved around. The old pages need to have their image changed to reflect the New Earth version. The disambig needs to be updated with a two-page version. Category pages need to be made.

    • I try to taper all of my reading to last until the next Wednesday by contributing to the Wikia, so it works out perfectly for me lol. I'll start keeping track of what's coming up with the solicits from here-forth and try to get them all done every Wednesday. Do you by any chance know of some way to confirm if a book has cancelled a shipment? I saw that the Green Arrow by Kevin Smith Deluxe Edition wasn't in store two weeks ago and nowhere I saw online mentioned if it was straight-up cancelled or delayed. From what I can tell the only hint was that they're coming out with an Absolute version of it in the next couple of months. I just want to make sure I don't make collections for collections that never release.

    • Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way to confirm cancellations.

      This doesn't apply as much to collections, but in some cases, it would be historically valuable for us to have a page for something that was cancelled (but that's more of a comic thing).

      So... I guess there's no way. On the upside, most don't get cancelled.

    Please double hurt Lex on your next hit. Tec, you and I can finish him off in one swoop then work on WW together. Harold and SforHope want Lex to win. I know this will upset Hope, but I see it as 2 players against Zantanna and 3 against WW.

      Loading editor
    • You do that and WW goes up to 11 again. It would take just 1 vote to down Zatanna to that same score. If Lex goes out, I'm kinda rooting for the witch, but you turn on the first agreement, and I'll join Tupka....leaving Harold to choose the winner.

  • From DC Database:Prime Earth Project:

    As per the Community Message, you can now begin to create pages for any character who does not belong to the Green Lantern, Legion of Super-Heroes or Batman families, and who does not have a pagename that uses the format "Codename (Real Name)" like Batman (Bruce Wayne) or Superman (Clark Kent). [emphasis mine]

    • Oh, my bad, I thought that meant more officially LOSH and didn't pertain to Legion Lost. I'll revert the changes I made if you haven't already. Though Wildfire does seem like he is becoming popular as a stand-alone character, when will someone make him a proper Prime Earth page?

        Loading editor
    • LOSH is a mess. No need to make it a bigger mess - we don't know how much is different.

        Loading editor
    • the most concerning issue is that the Legion seems aware of Flashpoint.

        Loading editor
    • I noticed them saying Flashpoint Breakwall in the first issue, but is there any more references? I'm curious if this may be like a section of the Source Wall; it'd be awesome if they addressed most of the continuity quirks in Multiversity, Futures End, or World's End. (Wishful thinking lol)

      Also, I noticed in the Map of the Multiverse, that Prime Earth is most likely going to be revealed as Earth 0. If this happens, will that prompt a change from (Prime Earth) designations to (Earth 0) since as far as I know Prime Earth was just a name given by writers out-of-universe? Just curious what would need to be done.

  • As far as collections go, I don't think there's any need to call the image anything other than "Batwing The Lost Kingdom.jpg". If a later edition comes along, we can differentiate by year or format. We're less stringent about filenames than we are about page names.
