General Help

When creating a profile, there are template to use. You can find a link to those here -----> Help Posting. There is also a help section for other helpful hints/suggestions and you can find that here ----> Help area
When making a new profile, the way I do it is I go to my Userpage, type a link to the character name like this -----> Hawkeye, then click the "Show preview” button at the bottom of the page and it will create a link to that character name. Once you've clicked on that, it will take you to an area where you can create the profile. All profiles/names that are in red, have not been created yet. All those in blue have already been created.
To edit a profile, just go to the character name, click the "Edit" button at the top of the page and then proceed to edit the profile.
When creating or editing profiles, please remember to use a spell checker program. We want this website to be as professional as possible as if it were an actual issue of the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe.
When writing the history for a character remember to write it like you were the Marvel character the Watcher, just standing around only observing the actions taking place. So there should be no references to a comic title or number in the history. Just information that you see happen within the comic itself. The only place to reference a title and issue number are the "debut", "origin" and "significant issues" area.
Also when writing a profile, please list as much information as possible. If you know the character's hair or eye color, then list that. If you know their powers, weapons or appearances, then please list those as well. But only information that is found in the comics themselves (Official Handbooks of the Marvel Universe are good sources also). Profiles that only have a one line for information and nothing else won't get approved.
Hope this helps you understand things a little better. If not the feel free to ask questions. --DragynWulf 18:57, 8 May 2007 (CDT) (Moderator)

You can take text from any of the OFFICIAL HANDBOOKS OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE, however if you do, please list the source (issue) where you got it from in the summary area. When writing the history for a character remember to write it like you were the Marvel character the Watcher, just standing around only observing the actions taking place.
