    • Regular policy applies: unless there's a source for one particular character, it's not going in the article. If only one or two characters get a height, only those get it added.

  • Don't tag everything for deletion just yet. The pages need to be unlinked, reshaped into franchise pages, and whatnot. If you tag them now, chance is the bot will run a sweep through To Be Deleted, and get rid of it all without unlinking.

  • The Impact Universe is a special case. They shouldn't be tagged for deletion.

    • The difference is Fawcett and Charlton were taken over by DC. Archie wasn't.

    • Yeah, Archie is still going. They had a recent crossover between Sonic and Mega Man. Hmm... Maybe Earth-MLJ can be limited to just the characters DC bought from Archie? Like the characters used in Impact Comics? And the characters that Archie still owns would just be links to Archie Comics Wiki? For example [[w:c:archiecomics:Archie Andrews|Archie]] instead of {{a|[[Archibald Andrews (Earth-MLJ)|Archie]]}}, but we can still have The Fly because DC bought The Fly and Archie still has Archie Andrews as their mascot?

  • Hello!

    Thank you for uploading new content to the DC Database project!

    We have lots of images in our database, 127,700 in fact, and in order to keep them organized we use a system of naming, categories and licensing added to each.

    1. Please review our Naming Conventions for Images. Images are categorized by name, so a descriptive name rather than a string of numbers is important.
      1. 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". Do not use parentheses, or the full pagename. Ignore the Universe designation if it is a New Earth character.
      2. 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.
    2. Images should be no less than 300px wide, unless no bigger image is available.
    3. Add the Image Template to the images you upload. This is mandatory. Fill it in as detailed here, or below.
    4. 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.
    5. 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.

    For a more in-depth guide, see Help:Image Template Hub. In addition, please take a moment to review our policies page and more specifically our image policy.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in reply to this post and our admins will explain how you can improve for next time.

  • There's pretty much concensus we're not going to work with "Earth-Crossover".

    • The Marvel characters.

      I waited a whole year as discussion was not yet resolved. It is now. Or, more accurately, I kinda forgot.

  • But read the flippin' community message. It's there on the right of the recent activity feed.

    Do not create prime earth pages for characters who existed pre-flashpoint. Especially Batman, and especially none of the characters whose pagenames use the "Codename (Real Name)" format.

    • That was 2012. About June. And I did make that diagram, because it makes sense. What DC did doesn't make sense. But we're going along with it anyway.

    • Look, it wasn't a personal vendetta against you or any other user. We tried to do what was best for the site and at the time DC was still claiming things were the same. They either lied or stopped caring about keeping it the same. That left us in the lurch. We're trying to come up with a solution that works now. So get on board or don't but its time to drop this.

  • Do you have a source that gives their real names? I'm not saying you're wrong but I never remember them being given and I'm pretty sure if they had been, we'd have already moved them.

    • Agree on Robin and Beast Boy. I've never paid a lot of attention to what Galfore has to say, but a lot of people think he calles her Koriand'r. Some verification would be nice.

    • I started looking into it. I may be wrong, though. Galfore calls her, "Princess Starfire" during his introduction. I'll continue watching the episode and see.

  • Sean, where are you going with this Database Wiki:Location Template? We already have a location template at DC Database:Location Template.

    • So that's where it went. Sorry, that was supposed to be for Database Wiki, but there was a mistake in the copying and pasting. The template wasn't supposed to be here. I pasted it in the wrong place. The Database Wiki templates come from the DC Database. If you find any more Database Wiki templates posted here by mistake, let me know. I'll try to pay more attention when copying templates.

  • Please refrain from adding the delete template to licensed characters. The discussion is not over, and not going your way.
