Creating a profile

valechan, please use a template when creating a profile for a character, team, event or anything else. You can find some help with creating profiles in the Help area and the templates themselves in the Help Posting area of the site. The templates are used to create a standard system for the Marvel Encyclopedia to show a uniformity with the entire site.
Also when making 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. Profiles that only have a one line for information and nothing else won't get approved. Because of this, your Pixie and Twelve profiles can not be approved. Hope this helps you understand things a little better. If not the feel free to ask questions. --DragynWulf 08:28, 3 September 2006 (EDT)

Thanks a lot for the tips, I got some bios approved after them. I "edited" this in your discussion, don't know if I did it right since this is a first, so bear with me if I did something wrong (I did not erase anything, I just added a little paragraph, but since it didn't show up immediately I have no clue if you have to approve it or what). Anwyay, I happen to have a question. I uploaded an image of Pixie (Eternal), and an image of Storm as the Queen of Wakanda, right after I edited said bios, including the pics, and several paragraphs to the Storm bio about events that were missing, as well as updating her current status and her known relatives (and the SERIOUS mispelling of her lastname). Right after that I edited the Moonstone bio, again, adding several paragraphs that were missing. The Moonstone additions got approved rather quickly, but the other two weren't approved or haven't been seen yet. I'd like to know which one is it, or if I did something wrong. I really want to learn because I really want to help here, I'm working on the Cecilia Reyes bio as I post this. Anyway, thanks for the previous help, and any further help will be greatly appreciated.

Spell checking program

When creating a profile or editing one, we ask that you please use a spell checking program. I didn't notice the numerous typos you made to the Scarlet Witch profile when I approved it. Had I noticed them, I would not approved it. For example magic not magick and other typos are something a spell checking program will point out to you. Other than the typos, it was a good edit. --DragynWulf 02:14, 8 September 2006 (EDT)

Goddess!!! Those weren't typos. In the comics, it is written as "magick" not "magic", especially when talking about Chaos Magick... I don't have a scan, but try to read Avengers vol3 #10 and you'll see what I'm talking about, it was written like that. that's why I wrote it that way. Do you know any good spell checking program? I don't know if you read my bio, but I'm from Argentina, and regrettably, all my writing programs are in Spanish, I have not been able to find a version of Word in english :( -- Valechan 20:52, 9 September 2006 (EDT)

I forgot this, I edited again, because I had created two wrong links, the one to Dr Doom's page (I wrote Von instead of von) and the Morgan Le Fay one (I wrote Le Fay, Morgan as a link when it is Morgan Le Fay). If you approve it I'll appreciate it a lot, and thanks for telling me it was a good edit... I love Wanda and it was very unfair to have such a small bio. I copied the Rogue, Mystique and Magik bios and I'll edit them soon as well. Valechan 21:00, 9 September 2006 (EDT)

Just wanting to help you even if I'm not a admin here. It shouldn't matter what language Word you use. When you open Word there is those things that have save file, open file and those. There should be Tools section and there language part that should open its own side box that should read decide a language or something like that. It will open a list and just scroll down till you see english and choose it. Now it should make the spell check with english. If you had already writen the text then just select all of it and do the same as above. Also little note when you edit existing bios do not delete too much of the original content, because you would delete someone elses work that someone else was used time to do. Try to work around the already existing text. Small changes are of course allowed. --Wezqu 18:56, 9 September 2006 (EDT)

Thanks for the heads up Wezqu. I will try next time to work around what's written, I did not erase anything of the original text in the Moonstone bio if I recall. I try to work my paragraphs between the paragraphs, but I do recognize I deleted part of the Scarlet Witch bio (I was really mad to see such a sloppy work on poor Wanda, hasn't she suffered enough in the hands of Bendis). Anyway, I'll see about those Word tips, I had no clue it had more than one language dictionary. Valechan 0:51, 10 September 2006 (EDT)
