Revision as of 23:19, 16 August 2007 by Stuart Vandal (Talk | contribs)

I saw the message in your edit summary regarding Beast. I went ahead and approved your change. Generally speaking, I leave changes to bios for the Moderators to approve. However, minor typos like that I have no hesitation about approving. Keep contributing and you eventually will be able to approve your own changes. Don't worry about the contribution credit - it happens automatically and it can't be avoided. You have contributed to the article, however minutely, and you deserve credit. Plus, due to either a bug or by design (I'm not sure which) the contributor information expires after a while, so many users keep track of pages to which they have made substantial contributions on their User page. [1] [2] [3]

Unfortunately, new users' contributions sometimes get lost in the shuffle. If you added something and it goes for a while without being noticed, you may want to resubmit it. If it's a big change and you don't feel like retyping it, you may want to bring it to the attention of one of the Moderators, such as Mike Fichera, Stuart Vandal, or DragynWulf. (There are other Moderators, but I've never found a master list.) If left unapproved for too long, the changes will eventually disappear.

I hope that helps. Have fun! --Lonesome Pinky 02:31, 5 August 2006 (EDT)


disambig pages

The page you made was good and you're not in trouble or anything. I just wanted to point somethings out to help you in the future. Somethings to remember when making a disambig page:
-Keep the discription short and simple. We already know they are called "Patch", so there isn't a need to mention it in the discriptions.
-The most popular character comes first and the rest are alphabetical after that.
The names themselves should say who the disambig page is about. In this case it is "Patch", so Frederick Foswell's name should read Patch (Frederick Foswell).
-The images shown should be of the character when they used that identity. Having an image of Spider-Man when Peter Parker was Dusk wouldn't work for the Dusk disambig page for example.
I reworded the Patch page to shorten the discriptions, changed the Foswell name for you. Feel free to check it out to get an idea of what I am talking about. --DragynWulf 23:22, 24 August 2006 (EDT)

Thanks. Is the Wolverine/Patch pictture okay? my scanner doesn't work, so I had to use a picture of regular Wolverine, who, for some reason, had a patch over his eye. --abcdefghijklmno 10:06, 25 August 2006 (EDT)

Your profile

I saw your profile question about making changes and 8 months later nothing. I looked at your profile and you did not use a template. They will not be approved if you don't use a template. Just make sure you delete the powerbox though. - --mickeys4life 21:03, 15 August 2007 (EDT)

Almost forgot, your questions have a better chance of being answered if you post them on this page here or a mods user talk page. Submitting an edit with your question in the summary box will most likely be ignored. - --mickeys4life 21:05, 15 August 2007 (EDT)

Oh, okay, I didn't know that you needed a template for your own user profile. Thanks, and how long would it take to get a page that I just made for the Resurrection Stone approved?--abcdefghijklmno 14:19, 16 August 2007 (EDT)

Yes...templates for everything. As far as the page you created....I really can't say. I'm just a peon like you. It can be the same day or two weeks from now. It really depends on whether the mods have the time to check it out and if the profile is mistake free. Also, profiles are usually saved for the person with the most knowledge of said character to approve. - --mickeys4life 16:17, 16 August 2007 (EDT)

Your Resurrection Stone page was not approved because it was blatantly taken from the Marvel Appendix site. Sentences were rearranged slightly, but not enough to hide this. Never copy from another site. They can be inaccurate, and even if they are not, that's someone else's work you are copying. Never, ever, copy from the Appendix, unless you have asked and been given permission and then put proper credit on the profile posted here; almost all the moderators here are contributors to the Appendix, so we will recognise where it came from, and we won't be happy about its unauthorised usage. And taking the image from the same site, complete with the label (which wasn't in the comic, only the Appendix site), means that gets deleted too. I'm not wanting to be too harsh, because you are new and perhaps didn't realise that you were wrong to take things from another site, but any work copied will be deleted, not approved.
