I already told you to not post on my talk and stop harassing me, so I'd like to also formally ask you to not post on other user's talk pages when I'm having a discussion with that person directly or at least attempting to before you butt in where you are not wanted. If I'm asking someone else "What do you think about [x]?" then it is not useful for you to say anything, since I'm not asking you anything.
Did I post on your talk or try to harass you? If you think any kind of a contact is harassment, then you're being unreasonable. I tried to simply ensure there was no dispute given how you were pasting on wall of someone who hates the comic greatly and asking such things needlessly can lead to dispute. I didn't even say anything that might offend, so you assume bad faith. I only posted when I saw there was a need.
Matte, back down. If you constantly seek discussions with someone, that can be considered harassment. Bad faith or offending is not necessary. This ends now, or with someone blocked.
And there was no need for that thread, or a reply to that thread.
First, you missed Koavf contacted me after you ended the discussion earlier. I tried to have a respectful dialogue, but assuming harassment is bad faith. Second your threats don't scare me. I'll refrain from contacting Koavf if he's bothered, but don't start threatening block when there's no need.
Stop what? Koavf last time kept reopening the thread when I tried closing it, then he claimed I was harassing him. Did you do anything to stop his harassment of mine? No. Now I once try to make sure another dispute doesn't break out, especially at a subject that has potential to explode, I'm the bad guy to blame. Blame someone else, I'm getting tired of your harassment.
Also, what about Neo-Gotham? Do you think the wiki should have a Neo-Gotham or Gotham City (Futures End) page or something like that? Because the Gotham City page of course refers to the Prime Earth Gotham (I don't even know if there is a New Earth Gotham page)
Oh well, I guess I'll do it by myself then. I wanted just some stubs, nothing filled up, I was going to fill them up once they were there. But I guess it's better if I learn to create new pages correctly on my own.
Still, thank you for hearing me out
Yeah, the thing is I don't really know what abilities Elainna has. I'll probably add something about martial arts, but that's about it. I'm still catching up with BB and I just found out she's Batwoman because I was writing the synopsis and I watched the red link. Not the best way to find out. But as soon as I understand what her abilities are, I'll add them.
I'll make sure to do it to all the other characters as well.
Actually you already know I didn't notice your comment at first about not to post. Look on the thread history. . Difference between you telling me and me still replying is just 2 minutes. This is because I was typing my own comment and thus couldn't notice you had replied. I'm not quick at replying especially with long comments. I've detailed your false accusation to Haroldrocks.
I don't really understand what you mean, there's only one version of the Flash who appears in the issue and the way I understand it, real names in brackets are only needed if there's more than version of a superhero or villain, etc. So in Wonder Woman #759 there is only one version of the Flash so having "(Barry Allen)" in there is unnecessary.
And again, this hasn't been done for every single issue in which there's only been one version of a particular superhero especially the flash, it's only done when more than one version of a superhero does appear and well, if people are unsure which version it is then all they have to do is....well, click on the link and that's it. Doesn't seem very difficult to me.
There is no one else called Superman. Now if there were two Flashes in the same comic, why do you need to mention their names when people can simply hover over the link mentioning "Flash"/"The Flash" or click on it and they'll know both Wally and Barry appear?
Your reason to not include names, because only one Flash appears is baseless. By your logic, we never need to mention names because people can simply point their mouse at the link to know.
Sorry if I'm reading it wrong, but you seem to be jumping back and forth between what you think is best, one time you're saying there is a need for adding names but then the next you seem to be saying the opposite. As for "Your reason to not include names, because only one Flash appears is baseless" that wasn't me that was what I thought after noticing how other people seem to do this (I.e. not include the name unless more than one superhero with the same alias appears. As for things like "There is no one else called Superman" well that can change at any moment, can't it? Anyone can pretend to be or call themselves Superman whatever it is they can do. So if you're really going to add the names for mantles shared between more than one person, then it simply seems a strange choice to only do it for a select few rather than every character.
Now if there were two Flashes in the same comic, why do you need to mention their names when people can simply hover over the link mentioning "Flash"/"The Flash" or click on it and they'll know both Wally and Barry appear?
From what I'm reading here, you seem to be saying that if two superheroes with the same appear in the same comic then adding their name isn't necessary for some reason, but I'm saying this is the only time I've seen their real names be used unless they simply appear out of costumes for the entire issue.
I'm not saying anything opposite. I'm just explaining your reasoning can also be utilized very easily to argue against adding real names in appearances at all, eve if they are out of costumes. This is why I can't agree with you.
I'm saying it's how your argument can be used. How will someone know that Barry Aleen Flash is being talked about if you remove the name? Only if they read the comic. Otherwise, they can only guess or check the link which mentions Flash.
Now if guessing and checking links is how we're supposed to figure out which Flash is being talked about, why do we even need names at all even if there were two Flashes in same comic?
Just link the Flash and below that again The Flash. And then people can hover over their link and find out which Flashes are being talked about. This is how your argument makes adding names useless.
For goodness sake, I'm not trying to make this happen! All I'm saying is if there is only one Flash within the issue, be it mentioned or appeared, then you don't need to add their name unless they appeared out of costume for the entire issue, but if there was another Flash who was mentioned as the flash or appeared as such, then I would agree that their names should be added as opposed to hovering over the links, unless they happened to be out of costume, then you don't need the names for the only person who appeared as the flash. Do you understand that? (If so, please just say yes or no and nothing further.)
If you truly believe that what I'm saying is incorrect, then I must ask, why are you only doing it for this one particular comic issue and seem to forget about the dozens of other comics with the same predicament?
Except there are multiple people to hold all the titles... thats like saying we should specify its Bruce or Hal every time because there has been another version in the main universe for every single issue. All issues in the Flash run should say Barry Allen then. I mean whats the purpose? Theres only one Flash in that issue and only one Flash in PE looks like that...
So I give you an example of a prominent character using the mantle of another prominent character and you're just actively choosing to ignore it rather than apply your explained rule of thumb to it? I'm sorry but your logic is flawed.
For a character who shares a name with another, in this case the Flashes, if both appear, obviously use parentheses to differentiate. No question there.
If one appears, use your own reasonable judgement to determine if parentheses are necessary, but you shouldn't actively correct them all to one or the other. Most of the time, it's the original writer's preference - if you wrote the article and want to add parentheses, sure. Not a huge issue.
Some reasonable assumptions that don't really require a name as a modifier: if a Flash is listed as appearing with the Titans, I think it's fine to assume it's Wally without needing a modifier. Justice League, vice versa.
If Barry Allen is and always has been the main character of the current Flash run, probably not necessary to add a modifier. Stuff like that.
I don't care for your assumptions after you lied for Etrigan's defence who defends homophobia and even lies that it was related to religious reasons (when it had nothing to do with that as the guy accused of homophobia himself stated). Or link characters to articles pertaining to other universes. Sorry did I anger you with the truth? Well you can block me out of your pettiness and show your true face. You already showed yourself to be supporter of homophobia defense and lies. Matters little.
We all know it's a parody book but that doesn't mean we just start inserting Ali into Prime Earth or say it's not the same guy. They changed his name by one letter. He has the same appearance and appears in basically the same story, told as a parody; it's the same guy.
Ali is actually mentioned fighting the Scrubbs by Jimmy Olsen. You can change back if you want, I'm not here to oppose. I just don't think we should start clubbing parody versions with the normal versions.
Do you happen to know if the "Headlines" story from Superman Giant #14 is collected/reprinted in a digital first issue? I'm a Seven Soldiers fan and I'd like to try to read the story since it features the Manhattan Guardian.
It never was. In fact none of the Giants with more than one volume had their stories from Vol 1 reprinted digitally (outside the ones already available on print like Up in the Sky, Swamp Thing: Tales from the Bayou etc). Headlines has never been reprinted anywhere.
Well editing them is quite cumbersome especially if you're adding summaries. I think that's the reason people may not like to focus on them. I have time for now, so I'll focus on them for the next few days.
