Idea... What idea?

What idea did I give you? All I said was that Marvel.com's online encyclopedia has a far better scource of information than MarvelDataBase.com, Wikipedia or any other website that is simular in the poll you created on the message boards. And the reason is because it is all varified before being approved. Unlike the other places where anyone can write anything at any given time no matter if it is a mistake or done on purpose. --DragynWulf 18:47, 27 October 2006 (CDT)

No, no... Nothing to do with the MarvelDatabase.com. I just saw your profile and decided to copy your formatting. Basically, it looks just like an article, but with a contributions area.
As for our other conversation, suffice it to say, both styles (Marvel.com vs. Wikipedia/MDP) have their advantages and disadvantages. It is absolutely impossible for a system where each post requires validation to ever keep up with an open system. Ever. It must also be said that a great deal of time is wasted cleaning up 'the mess'. Both are good, both need work...

Ah, well with nothing said about the "idea" itself the only time we've talked was on the message board. So you can see why I had the question.
As for the idea for the user profile contributions thing, I believe I got the idea from another poster or maybe it was fellow Moderator Danny Wall. --DragynWulf 21:42, 27 October 2006 (CDT)

You are right, it certainly wasn't self-evident, but it wasn't really intended for anyone to read...
Danny Wall, eh? He is a seriously great guy... That reminds me I should say hello to him as well... Cheers!
