Leather Boy

acotilletta, I approved your Leather Boy article, but in the future avoid putting your opinion in the bios (for example, "Nothing unless being able to withstand basketballs pelted at his head qualifies as a power"). sononsj 01:14, 20 April 2006 (EDT)

Sorry, but I was not trying to put an opinion in there. I was just trying to use a little humor for a character that is far from serious.

No need to apologize. (Actually I did laugh at first). sononsj 16:05, 20 April 2006 (EDT)

Reminds me of the spiderfan.org bios :) cactusrob 16:39, 20 April 2006 (EDT)

Puma

Hey Acotilletta, good launch for the Puma, and thanks for catching the dangling sentence I left behind as I was being called for dinner and hastily hit "Save". I had a couple of formatting edits you should note for future profiles. Identity: short and sweet - "Secret" - "Publicly known" - "No dual identity" - if secret, succinctly mentioning who does knows the secret is OK. Groups: no need to list the members of the group. If there's an Outlaws team page someday, it'll list the members. "Spiderman" is spelled "Spider-Man" and when referencing comic issues, use the year (and therefore can drop the oft-confusing "Volume" numbers). In the history section, when Fireheart bought the Bugle, his campaign didn't really do to much to help Spider-Man (it was a bit over the top), and Peter asked him to end the overexposure. So, I cut the part that the public's perception changed. Anyway, glad to see Puma has made the page, he's one of my favorites. --MikeFichera 06:38, 5 May 2006 (EDT), Moderator

Outlaws

Acotilletta, your Outlaws profile slipped past us and has now past it's expiration date where it cannot be marked approved. Sorry about that. Can you resubmit it? Do you still have the text? (If not, let me know). One comment though: read through it again, and make sure your verb tenses are all in the past tense in the history section.--MikeFichera 18:03, 22 May 2006 (EDT)

Thanks for letting me know. I didn't know there was an expiration date on these articles. I have posted it again, and I looked over the verb tenses, and I think I got them all so that it reads the same the whole way through. I guess I will also go back to the older pages I tried to edit, and redo those as well. Thanks again for the help Mike.

Images

For the images, please leave the "Image_not_available.gif" text in the area for image instead of removing it from new profiles you create. This way there is something there instead of a blank with text. --DragynWulf 18:11, 16 June 2006 (EDT)

Sure thing. Sorry about that. Thanks for looking at the entries.

Shriek

Due to numerous versions of a character, we don't want to list characters with roman numerals. In the Shriek profile you list Carron as Carron II. There are three versions of Carron so please mention which version you are talking about by name instead of roman numeral. Carrion (Malcolm McBride), Carrion (Miles Warren clone) or Carrion (William Allen).
You also mispelt Demogoblin by spelling it DemoGoblin in one area of the profile.
Because of that, I can't approve it. However you are more than welcome to resubmit it after correcting those mistakes.
And for future referance, when making links there is only a need to link to a character once in the history and it should be done when first mentioned. --DragynWulf 21:09, 29 June 2006 (EDT)

Persuader

For the Persuader profile, where did you get the height/weight stats from?--MikeFichera 01:19, 6 July 2006 (EDT)

I believe from the other website you contribute to, Spiderfan.org.

In-Betweener

I wasn't able to approve it because it reached a certain time limit. I was able to check it over though and found no problems with it. Please resubmit it and I will approve it. --DragynWulf 22:05, 7 July 2006 (EDT)


Sgt. Blume - past tense

Blume's profile needs to be written in the past tense. It's history, not a current event. --MikeFichera 13:06, 13 July 2006 (EDT)

Okay, sorry. I'll get right on it.

Images

There is nothing wrong with the quality of the images you scanned and uploaded. However because they are not wide enough, the system automatically streches the width of the image to meet the standard 442 width, which then causes the image to become low quality. Feel free to upload the images you have uploaded for the Asgardians, but just place them on a background that has a width of 442 pixels.
Also since the profiles are not long, shortening the height of the images would look better as well instead of having a long image with only one paragraph of History text to scroll down to read.
Images that are 442 (width) x 350 (length) looks better. The length is not required, but as I said, it just looks better. The width is the important thing to remember about images though.
You can find out more information on images in the Image help area. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. --DragynWulf 22:52, 16 July 2006 (EDT)

Eduardo Lobo

Replied to your question on my user page.--MikeFichera 21:52, 22 July 2006 (EDT)

Rewriting OHotMU text

Acotilletta, I've noticed that your profiles are basically text from the OHotMU, only reworded to look like original text. In the future, please do not do this. It is worse than plagiarizing the writers of the OHotMU.
If you want to take text from the OHotMU, then please feel free and copy it for a profile, but mention your source of information in the Summary area like "text taken from OHotMUDE #12". This way you can be credited for your contribution to the online Encyclopedia while also giving credit to the writers of the Handbooks themselves for doing the research and writing of the profile as well. --DragynWulf 17:43, 28 July 2006 (EDT)
