    • Nope, not entirely. There is also:

      • Screwing with the AlienRace field.
      • Removing items without explanation (PlaceOfBirth field)
      • Editing by trial and error with the references.
      • Apparent plagiarism (2 of the 3 items from above) due to the the method of editing presenting them as new content in the before and after comparisons. Seriously, adding the headers could have been done in one pass and the tweaking of the paragraph content on a second. It would have been easier to see what you actually changed.
      • Lack of communication. Edit summaries are helpful. So is working through a discussion that raises concerns about your changes before you revert the article to the version you changed it to that was problematic.

      And now there is the plagiarized section you added that you don't remember adding... very, very odd that.

      On the up side, this has shown that the entire history section was taken from Wikipedia in 2008. With that in mind, reworking it is a good idea. But that is going to need to be done in a way that minimizes the 'port from Wikipedia, not increase it.

  • Before you end up in an edit war with Byfield and I, let me try to make something clear to you.

    While your addition to the Batman (Bruce Wayne) page may be true, we won't accept it on the page unless you include a reference for that information. For example, if Batman trained with Zatara or says he trained with Zatara in some issue or other, let's say... Detective Comics #49, for argument's sake, you would source your addition like this:

    "Batman trained with John Zatara, and learned the art of escapism.<ref>{{C|Detective Comics Vol 1 49}}</ref>"

    Which would look like this.

    Batman trained with John Zatara, and learned the art of escapism.[1]


    1. Detective Comics #49

  • I've undone your edit to the Atom disambig.

    Here's why:

    The "highlighted" section, meaning the top-spot next to the description, is meant to demonstrate a) the mainstream version on the right, and b) the most well-known of the past versions to the left.

    While there are two mainstream(ish) versions of the Atom now, there were then (before flashpoint), too. We created the two-highlighted disambigs in order to make sure that users unfamiliar with the New 52 can find the characters they are looking for, by making sure that the past versions are prominent as well.

    I just wanted to explain that.

  • The infobox is for the most recognizable version of the character. Any "new look" sported for a couple of issues can go in the character gallery.

  • Hello!

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

    We have lots of images in our database, 133,107 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.
