Regarding character discussion
Chat all you want with fellow Marvel Fans on the Marvel.com Message Boards, but please keep the focus of this and other talk pages about the Marvel Universe Encyclopedia. --DragynWulf 20:37, 7 May 2007 (CDT) (Moderator)
What are Hero Points?
Hero Points have nothing to do with the message board. Hero Points currently measure of your activity on Marvel Universe. Every time one of your profiles/edits is approved, you gain a Hero Point. The more Hero Points you earn, the more privileges you gain on the Marvel Universe. If you have enough Hero Points, you can gain self approval rights where you can approve your own profiles or edits to existing profiles. Users with a lot of Hero Points will also be eligible for many other cool things on Marvel.com!
What are some tips for writing a good profile?
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
What are the reasons why profiles might not be approved?
Information entered on a profile is not approved for numerous reasons:
Some might think, what is so important about making mistakes like those I mentioned above. The reason is because the system we have setup allows a poster to gain self-approval rights (meaning they can approve their own profiles and edits to existing profiles) once they have reached a certain amount of Hero Points. The reason for this is because it is felt that once a poster reaches that amount of points, they know how to properly edit a profile or even create a new profile without someone having to come behind them and clean up a large number of typos, incorrect links and other things. Basically clean up a mess that they have left. --DragynWulf 20:37, 7 May 2007 (CDT) (Moderater also because most people would put somthing that would be way off topic and keep doing it over and over or put somthing someone already has on marvel universe..
Why do profiles require approval?
If the information on the site was not approved before it is allowed to be added to the profile(s), then this would not be a good source of information. We want the Marvel Universe to be able to be a place for fans to get correct information on the characters they love or even sometimes hate. If there was not an approval system, then posters that wanted to vandalize a profile would be able to put in anything they wanted in a profile. This is why Marvel.com is the best source of information instead of websites like Wikipedia and other online sites that use a wiki based system. --DragynWulf 20:37, 7 May 2007 (CDT) (Moderator)
Will you be notified if its not approved.--castle95
What is a Userpage?
A Userpage is a poster's private area to talk about themselves, what they like, favorite comics and various other things as long as it remains within the guidelines for an all-ages website (no swearing, posting unappropriate links, etc.).
Characters that cannot have profiles
Characters from video games
Profiles for characters in video games are not allowed to be created because Marvel does not own the rights to those characters. Examples of characters are Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects. Even though Marvel published a comic about them, they are licensed characters that are not owned by Marvel. This also includes any characters from Street Fighter vS X-Men and Halo games. --DragynWulf 20:37, 7 May 2007 (CDT) (Moderator)
Characters from crossovers
Profiles for characters that Marvel has crossed over into can not be created due to Marvel not owning the rights to those characters. This includes any character from DC (JLA/AVENGERS, X-MEN/TEEN TITANS, GREEN LANTERN/SILVER SURFER, etc.), Image, Dynamite ASH VS MARVEL ZOMBIES, RED SONJA/SPIDER-MAN, etc.), and even the Amalgam characters including Access. Access was co-created and therefore neither Marvel or DC own the rights to it.
Characters from licenced properties
Profiles for characters that Marvel bought the licence rights to publish are not allowed to be created because Marvel does not own these characters. Some of which include Super-Pro, Conan, Transformers, G.I. Joe, Micronauts, and various others. Also, Charcoal from the THUNDERBOLTS is not allowed to be created due to legal issues with the individuals that won the contest.
Is it ok to create a page for these characters saying please do not create-like the Conan page? - --mickeys4life 13:58, 11 July 2007 (CDT)
Sure, go for it. --MikeFichera 15:52, 11 July 2007 (CDT) (Moderator)
The Marvel.com Universe section is not intended to be an image archive, so users posting images only to be able to link to them from elsewhere will have those images deleted. Further, no fan art, movie or game images are to be posted as they are outside of the scope of this section of the site.
Do the pictures for our user profiles have to be comic related? I uploaded a pic of my dog for my page but it was deleted.- --mickeys4life 23:21, 9 July 2007 (EDT)
Anything uploaded becomes the property of Marvel. Only images published by Marvel can be uploaded by users of the site. So, sorry - no personal photos. --MikeFichera 00:20, 11 July 2007 (CDT) (Moderator)
Ok. It wasnt specified so I thought it was OK. Thanks for answering my question Mike. - --mickeys4life 13:36, 11 July 2007 (CDT)

I second that motion. david andrews 11:01, 16 September 2007 (EDT)
Well, I can see nothing wrong with it and I can't see anything to hate about it and YES, they should make Ultimate Ghost Rider. It'll look so freaking awesome! SophomoreSlump 21:10, 6th Nov 2007
Yes they should, that would be great1 User:Spider-Blake 1:12, 2 January 2008
The view all button on main page does not work. It takes me to a "We dont know what happened either" page with the following info. The page you requested is not on this server.
You may have better luck with one of these links: Marvel.com Home Marvel Universe Movies & TV Comics Toys
Not sue if you already knew this or not. - --mickeys4life 17:58, 11 July 2007 (CDT)
Because I have 9 and I tried to make Ultimate hobgoblin so many times and I even went out and bought the volumme (Ultimate Spider-Man #13) Hockysimle 6:36 Satdurday August 4, 2007
I was just thinking, what if there was a section in the character profiles identifying their race...eg, human, mutant, alien, mutated human (like spiderman or the fantastic four). blipadouzi 20:01, 30 September 2007 (CDT)
I've recently made an edit to the "Hellcow" Page. As seen here Hellcow, It clearly states that Hellcow died but Hellcow is not listed in the Deceased catergory. I've edited this so that she will be. I've also done the same thing to Holocaust, I would appreaciate if someone approved this. User:fantasticthing
