Help talk:Contents

Is there any chance to getting a "How to create new entries" step-by-step somewhere or to make it easy by saying "Create New Entry"? I placed an entry (or think I did), but not sure if it worked. From the looks of it, it looked liked I edited the "Catagory: Stylesheet" instead of creating a new entry.

I'm working on this. I'll add it at Help:New Entries. --pete 22:43, 10 March 2006 (EST)

Typo on Help:Posting

I tried to put a note about this on the talk page for Help:Posting, but it didn't appear to work. I'm making a guess that this is because that page has not been officially approved. So, I'm putting it here instead. The link for the "Wanted Pages" section is broken. In order for it to work, the underscore needs to be removed: Special:Wantedpages. (I'd do it myself, but the page is protected, doubtless with good reason.) This is my first day here, so the difference between the above page and Marvel_Universe:Wanted is not clear to me. Regardless, fixing the link to point to one or both of these pages would be a good thing. Cheers, --Lonesome Pinky 01:47, 2 July 2006 (EDT)

The Special:Wantedpages page is an automatically-generated list of links from existing profiles to pages that have yet to be created. The Marvel_Universe:Wanted is a list compiled by Marvel staffers as to the profiles they want to see here. --ComiX-Fan 04:30, 2 July 2006 (EDT)

Aha! Thanks for clarifying that! --Lonesome Pinky 13:33, 2 July 2006 (EDT)

Jason Macendale

I just noriced something when I checked that Marvel_Universe:Wanted page that there is Hobgoblin (Jason Macendale), but shouldnt him be named Jack O'lantern (Jason Macendale), because he is the original Jack O'lantern and was Hobgoblin only at end of his career. --Wezqu 14:38, 2 July 2006 (EDT)

In answer to Wezqu's question, I did a quick check and there are ten links pointing to Hobgoblin (Jason Macendale), but only three links pointing to Jack O'Lantern (Jason Macendale). Based on that, I'd say make the article title Hobgoblin (Jason Macednale) and redirect Jack O'Lantern (Jason Macendale) to it. Of course, if other factors dictate doing it the other way around, that's fine too. Either way, I think there needs to be a redirect page to catch any stray links. --Lonesome Pinky 15:47, 2 July 2006 (EDT)

I know that, because I have myself editet those three links to look like that, because I though it will be named like that. Of course there is many pages that usually use the latest name for the character that would put it to under the Hobgoblin. Also I know he appeared as Hobgoblin more that he appeared as Jack O'lantern, but just saying that he was the original Jack O'lantern and should on my opinion been called as that. Also its my policy to clean pages that I edit from links that go to redirect pages. I put the links go to straight to the right page. --Wezqu 16:02, 2 July 2006 (EDT)
