Blacklash and Whiplash

We were editing both of them at the sametime. While I was waiting for the image of the female Whiplash to upload (already had the text to add, just waiting for image), you were adding her. :-)
And while I was making ajustments to the Blacklash character, you were as well. Because of this it looks like the new character you added didn't go through. So, you will have to do it again, unless you'd like me to. --DragynWulf 08:37, 7 August 2006 (EDT)

Well it was trough, but you approved your own edit after it even if it wasn't necessary. I already changed it when I edited it to your definition and just added the character. --Wezqu 09:34, 7 August 2006 (EDT)

Disambig entires

If there is only one version that has no real name, then make the quoted name "unrevealed". If there are more than one character who's name has not been revealed, then go ahead and distinguish between the two by using team/orgainization/occupation or something to that effect. --DragynWulf 15:34, 9 August 2006 (EDT)

Ok, I have usually used the something of the character to separate him from other characters, but I will use that unrevealed thing now on. Also just siding the subject because you happened to mention that. You should check this character Blackwing (Heavy Mettle). If you want me to apply it to this one too then you have to move it to Blackwing (unreleaved) because there is just this one character unnamed and the other one is named. --Wezqu 20:31, 9 August 2006 (EDT)

When making the disambig pages, in the Marvel Universe area the most popular character should be first because this is the character most likely the reason for people clicking on the link. The rest should be alphabetical after that. For the imposter and alternate reality area, the characters should all be alphabetical. --DragynWulf 13:21, 22 August 2006 (EDT)

I know Dr. Stranger Yet never used Dr. strange but I figured it belonged. I looked at it this way. Say soemone who hasnt collected in awhile decides to start back up and wants to read up on some of the alternate reality characters he remembers, only problem is he cant remember the exact name but knows that it was Dr. Strange in some form. That person can find the disambiguation page and see if its there.(I know the Stranger Yet profile has not been created yet but this scenario could work for other characters). I won't add anymore disambiguation characters like this again so don't worry. I just wanted to share my thinking with you. Thanks for the heads up. - --mickeys4life 16:49, 27 July 2007 (CDT)

Well moderators have said that no characters in disambiguation page if they haven't used the alias. Think it like this even if you have a character that is in main universe uses that alias and then you have character in other reality that doesn't use it but is the carbon copy of this character. They are still different characters with different history and quite frankly I don't see them at all as the same character. If I would met me from different universe he would not be me because only me is me. If this would be allowed it would make disambiguation pages quite a free zone. Like if you have several characters there from main universe that used the alias this would allow to add all their different carbon copies in there that would quite frankly make it more useless and also giving several people wrong information they would tought that that character used the alias even if he/she never did and that he/she was only on the page because the main universe character did. --Wezqu 19:14, 27 July 2007 (EDT)

Prodigy and Spellcheck

Wezqu I understand that you have been told this before and i don't mean to nark on you since your english is rusty and that is not your fault. But PLEASE use a good spellcheck on your entries PLEASE. I just spent the last 15 mins trying to fix the Prodigy page. (I know thats bizzare, but Im somewhat Obsessive Compulsive so it really bugs me). Im not tyring to disrespect you, you have done fantastic work, just please be sure to spellcheck your entries. Thanks. --mimicx35

Spellcheck its funny that when I put that text I wrote through one it doesnt even tell that there is any mistakes. It seems that its enogh that the words are english words. Also many of the sentenses you corrected weren't really wrong writen but differently writen you just made then sound better. There is several pages with more mistakes than that. I cant fix every mistake in my post because for one I dont notice every mistake and when even Word and Spellchecker doesn't say that the sentence is wrong writen how could I know. If there is mistakes I'm not going to get mad about someone fixing them who knows the language better than me. I usually read them through, but of course I'm just a human. --Wezqu 06:24, 10 August 2006 (EDT)

Yeah I Can understand that. Thanks for editing that disambiguous page by the way. --mimicx35

Apostrophe

Wezqu - thanks for catching the redundant text I added in Macendale. Thought I deleted the armor information and moved it to paraphernalia. I see you changed many apostrophies - like Jack O'Lantern. It looks the same to me before and after the edit. What did it look like on your computer? --MikeFichera 13:20, 13 May 2007 (CDT)

Heh no need to thank me. I did wrote it so I usually check the new edits and you did a very detailed work. You would be the one who deserves to get praised. Well I would think you used word or something else when you wrote that text so you wouldn't make any stupid writing mistake or anything. I have noticed when you copy text from somewhere else to here it uses different mark than this wiki itself. Here is how its shown when you write the letter in this wiki ' and here is when I copy it for excample from microsoft word ’. I usually edit it on the bios that I happen to edit to change this ’ to this ', because to me its just look odd when there is two different types in one text. I thougth this ' is the right one because this wiki uses it so I change them to that. Also all names that need that mark use this ' and when that other mark happens to be in the link it doesn't work like the Jack O'Lantern links often didn't. If you still don't see the differens in the letters I will give little descripition what they look like to me. The one that this wiki uses is straight but the one that comes when you copy text from word is leaning to the right. --Wezqu 18:10, 13 May 2007 (EDT)

I see the difference now...have to check which apostrophie comes from which software program. thanks, --MikeFichera 17:01, 14 May 2007 (CDT)

Alternate reality links

I was looking at Avengers (MC2) when I noticed the links for some of the heroes are just their names. Example: Iron Man is listed as Stark, Anthony (MC2)...is this how they should be listed? If they use Iron Man shouldn't it be Iron Man (Anthony Stark) MC2, or something of that nature? - --mickeys4life 21:49, 16 August 2007 (EDT)

I'm not sure I aren't too familiar with the MC2 universe but I know that is the period when childs of the superheros and villians are running around. I would think Stark is listed like that because he is not anymore Iron Man he used to be but now has retired. So he is listed as Stark, Anthony and not Iron Man. Also alternative reality characters should always be listed as "Alias (Earth designation)". These ultimate and mc2 should not be used anymore. I would think admins would appreciate that you use the earth designation. Earth designation is not needed if the character is now living or has frequently visited Earth-616. Like Deathlok (Luther Manning). Also I think you forgot to put the earth designation on your latest adition Sabreclaw. --Wezqu 07:09, 17 August 2007 (EDT)

The Avengers wasn't mine...I just noticed them when I was adding to it. I did forget to designate Sabreclaw. I think he is the only one using it right now so it shouldn't be a problem. If it is then it can be changed I guess. Thanks for the info....I wasn't sure about the Tony Stark. - --mickeys4life 07:10, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

It doesn't matter if he is the only one. When there is no earth designation on the nick means he is main universe character. Now some people might think he is in Earth-616 as he doesn't have the designation on him. Every non Earth-616 character should be listed with its earth designation if he is not living in Earth-616 or is frequent visitor of Earth-616. --Wezqu 10:12, 17 August 2007 (EDT)

Even though he is listed in the MC2 category as well as having his Earth designation listed on his bio page? If someone mistakes him as main universe with all that then they aren't reading LOL. I guess a mod will have to fix his name then as well as the link on the online bibliography, which lists it as just Sabreclaw. - --mickeys4life 10:30, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

Tenebrous

Hey thanks, your image is very cool, but the edit that was made to the Antiphon The *Over Seer* was incorrect. He has only appeared in one comic to date. Annihilation: Heralds of Galactus #2 where his title is spelled Antiphon the Overseer. Overseer is one word, I know that the spell checker sees this different.--ohitsme 22:16, 2 September 2007 (CDT)

You are barking on the wrong tree now ohitsme. That Overseer mistake was in the page before I even edited it and I didn't even notice that it was listed wrong. Yes I know that he is mentioned in only one magazine where he is shown as he was when he was alive and where his corpse also was found inside the Kyln by Tenebrous and Aegis. --Wezqu 12:50, 3 September 2007 (EDT)

Hey Wezqu, I'm not saying that you changed the profile. I am asking you to correct the mistake because I can't. I put that other information up there just in case it was needed. I have been asked several times to list where my information came from. Like you I'm just try to put up good work too. I like what you did as far as the image goes. Forgive me if I offended you.--ohitsme 23:13, 3 September 2007 (CDT)

Well if you check your text you didn't exactly asked me to change it. It sounded more that you said I did it. Also I didn't get upset about it just missunderstood what you ment. Well I will change it there is also another thing that I noticed to be wrong in it. Tenebrous didn't never appeared in Annihilation: Prologue. --Wezqu 12:36, 4 September 2007 (EDT)

Yeah I noticed that mistake it should have read Annihilation: Silver Surfer #3. Thanks for your help Wezqu.--ohitsme 22:38, 4 September 2007 (CDT)

Earth-93246

Any reason you deleted Earth-93246 Dazzler from the disambig? It's the correct designation for the What If #46-47 "Cable killed the X-Men" story. --MikeFichera 12:38, 21 December 2007 (CST)

Ou, sorry I didn't find any reference to that earth designation anywhere. Can you tell me if its refered anywhere as Earth-93246 (in comic books or handbooks I mean)? I will add it back. --Wezqu 15:52, 21 December 2007 (CST)

The Earth-# designations have not all been published yet (many more will be soon in 2008 in the upcoming Hardcover compilations of the Handbooks), but are an exception to the rule here regarding sourcing of information for this page. Naming alternate universes by Earth-# designations is very helpful for the sake of the Handbooks and this website. (Much easier to give the number rather than "Earth where Cable killed all the X-Men"...which may have happened in more than 1 universe.) Jeff Christiansen is head writer of the Handbooks and the man Marvel relies upon to keep track of the Earth-# designations for books like the Exiles. So, if a mod posts an Earth-#, rest assured it's been approved by Jeff. If you have a question on a universe designation, feel free to ask me. --MikeFichera 23:44, 21 December 2007 (CST)

Yeah thats not really so suprising as several earth's have been numbered here before they have been numbered in handbooks or comics. If I remember correctly I was the one who added that earth long time ago to the Dazzler page. I was just going trough the list and noticed that I haven't found any reference to that earth and as there is several "unofficial" designation out there so I deleted it for to be save. I know why it makes more sence to label them with earth designation than anything else as it clearly separates the realities that are close to eachother. I rely on a list of earth designations that have been put up from handbooks and comics so I only can be sure about the realities that are published somewhere. I intentionally leave some characters out of the disambiguation page when I don't know their earth designation, but some I have added as some description as those realities stories might be quite interesting to read. --Wezqu 05:35, 22 December 2007 (CST)

Lilin

Hey Wezqu changing the template is not a problem for me, because I started to do it myself, but I noticed that they are listed in the Legacy HB under a team template. So went with the way it was originally published, it provides consistency to the readers. It really is confusing when the handbook and our information is different. At least to me it is. Keep up the good work. --ohitsme 19:00, 10 January 2008 (CST)

Well in that handbook the bio was really more like crossbreed of team and species template. As the members where listed as known members and not current members and former members. When you think about it they are a race more than a team they usually didn't work together and they are not all trying to get the same thing as many of them has individual goals. --Wezqu 01:41, 11 January 2008 (CST)

Zarathos

Wezqu I am currently working on Zarathos I was wondering if you could hook up the main image. --ohitsme 19:14, 10 January 2008 (CST)

Well hope you like it. --Wezqu 03:13, 11 January 2008 (CST)

I just checked it and I did not see any image. It looks like there might be a problem with the page or something. --ohitsme 05:58, 11 January 2008 (CST)

The picture works for some reason this page sometimes shows picture as white instead of the picture. Press the image and it will take you to the pictures page. To me it works fine. --Wezqu 09:26, 11 January 2008 (CST)

You are right it works and it looks great. --ohitsme 19:11, 11 January 2008 (EST)

The Overseer

Hey Wezqu, the image looks awesome but it is not showing up as the main image, at least not where I am sitting. You might want to check it out. BTW, if you are up to it could you create a Head image for Equinox? --ohitsme 08:56, 27 January 2008 (CST)

I think you mean that the picture is white? The pictures have somekind of bug that makes them look like they are not showing up in the bio when in fact they are working. I have witnessed this as well in other bios. To me it works fine. Check it again later and it should be visible. I don't know why that happens but it sometimes happens. Yeah I can create it I quite frankly like that character so it would have been on the table soon anyway. --Wezqu 09:37, 27 January 2008 (CST)

Thanks Wezqu! --ohitsme 09:59, 27 January 2008 (CST)

Oblivion

Hey Wezqu, could you work up a Head shot for Oblivion? I am just starting on him today, so it could be a couple of days before I'm finished, So there is no rush or anything like that. Let me know if you are interested or have time. --ohitsme 16:06, 3 February 2008 (CST)

Hey Wezqu, are you working on the Oblivion image? --ohitsme 12:33, 8 February 2008 (CST)

I will do it when I can haven't started it yet. --Wezqu 14:40, 8 February 2008 (EST)

Hellstorm

Hey Wezqu I get what you are saying, I see what is happening. The Character's last name and aliases are even mixed in some of the books I am going through. However it is clearly in Hellstorm #1, 1993 that the correct spelling is Hellstrom, Thanks. --ohitsme 12:02, 17 February 2008 (CST)

Yeah just said it because you repeated the mistake so you notice it. In reality Hellstorm changed his last name to Hellstorm but he is still listed in all Handbook's as Daimon Hellstrom. So both ways are really right but as Handbook's list his lastname as Hellstrom. I would use it in the bios as his real name because of it. --Wezqu 14:22, 17 February 2008 (EST)

One Above All disambiguation page

Thanks Wezqu, I am not well versed in doing disambiguation pages or the rules, so your help is greatly appreciated. As far as Protege goes. he did use the name of the One Above All in Guardains of the Galaxy #49 and 50 (1994), although it was just for a couple of issues. As the One Above All, he battled the Living Tribunal, the Hawk God, Eternity and a Celestial. I think I have corrected the One Above All (celestial) page from being connected to the main page?--ohitsme 15:28, 26 May 2008 (EDT)

Ok, if he used it then he can be listed, but not among the Main universe characters. It should be listed on the alternate universe characters. I will add it back to the right place. --Wezqu 06:45, 27 May 2008 (EDT)

Nightside (Sydney Taine)

Hey Wezqu, do you have any idea what Universe she would be listed in? I have looked through the mini series, but it is not clearly stated anywhere. Her dimensions is referred to as the Nightside Dimension, is it a reality within the 616 universe, or something altogether different. --ohitsme 11:08, 15 June 2008 (CDT)

Well officially her reality hasn't got a designation at least not in any handbooks. You could ask about it from one of the moderator as her reality designation is most likely known to the handbook makers its just not listed in any publications. I still would think that she is from alternate earth and not from pocket dimension in Earth-616. --Wezqu 15:48, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

Thanks Wezqu, I will ask Mike and see if he knows. --ohitsme 16:14, 15 June 2008 (CDT)

Stinger

I've got a new disambiguation page suggestion for you: Stinger. I had to check to see if there was more than just the MC2 character, and there is. Cheers, Lonesome Pinky 20:58, 18 September 2008 (CDT)

Great job! Thanks! --Lonesome Pinky 17:19, 19 September 2008 (CDT)

Iron Man: The End

Hey Wezqu, check out IRON MAN: THE END. The USAgent image you did appears on a computer screen. --DragynWulf 12:20, 8 November 2008 (EST)

Indeed it does even if its a small picture but the background looks the same. Still all of those images on the screen comes from this site. --Wezqu 13:48, 12 November 2008 (CST)

Skullbuster

Hi Wezqu. I've got another disambiguation page for you to create--Skullbuster. I noticed that this was an alias used by Cylla and others. Currently, there's Skullbuster (male) page and a Skullbuster (female) page. If nothing else, I feel the Skullbuster page should point to those two. --Lonesome Pinky 16:12, 14 December 2008 (EST)

Looks good. Thanks! --Lonesome Pinky 17:36, 15 December 2008 (EST)
Ah, I wondered why you didn't include the picture. I thought that perhaps it was an oversight. Now I understand. Thanks. Lonesome Pinky 17:26, 16 December 2008 (EST)

Yeah the pictures can't have speech bubbles or sound effects sounds. Still if there is for example a newspaper that has text on it you can read. Those are allowed as they are stuff that the characters themself can see. --Wezqu 18:44, 16 December 2008 (EST)

Hellfire Club

It's me again. It looks as though we have disambiguation pages for Black King and Black Queen, but not for White King and White Queen. I didn't check all of the chess pieces, but these two seemed of importance. --Lonesome Pinky 16:56, 14 December 2008 (EST)

Thanks again! --Lonesome Pinky 17:26, 16 December 2008 (EST)

I will do the White Queen in couple of days still I didn't overlook the need to the disambiguation pages as I do them in alphabetical order and I'm on "Q" at the moment. Still if you want some others to be done just let me know. --Wezqu 18:44, 16 December 2008 (EST)

Nice work on Hellfire Club! That was a lot of cleanup. --Lonesome Pinky 13:12, 21 December 2008 (EST)

Bast/Osiris

Bast appears in both male and female forms the information is correct in the All-New OHOTMU A-Z Update #2 printed in 2007. Thus the information on Osiris was correct. --ohitsme 13:09, 11 February 2009 (EST)

Well my point mostly was that you listed him as half-sister of Horus when in reality Horus is his great-grand-nephew. Also note I use term "he" as in most recent handbooks Panther God is always refered as male. I can for example list you few books and bios where he is listed as male in characters relatives section. Lets start with Khonshu bio in All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z: Update #1 listed as "half-brother" and then Seth bio in Marvel Zombies: The Book of Angels, Demons & Various Monstrosities listed as "granduncle". I would list him in relatives as male as so are the handbook makers listing the character. --Wezqu 14:16, 11 February 2009 (EST)

Mary Walker

Hey Guys, While creating the Dusk (demon) profile, I noticed that Mary Walker had a profile on the site. However, I am confused if the "Mary Walker" from the Daredevil is the same character from the Marvel Comics Present story. As far as the images goes it seems that they are, although there is no mention of this storyline in the Daredevil 2004 hand book. If you have the answer to this question please help.--ohitsme 19:36, 19 February 2009 (EST)


Dark Avengers

Sorry i'm wasting your time but about the dark avengers Iron Patriot(who is Norman Osborn) Has lost his green goblin powers and WEapons now he wears the Iron Patriot.Also Daken has his own profile and thundra too Anti Venom(is Eddie Brock),Venom is Spider-Man Nor vahh is Captain Marvel Moonstone is MS Marvel Bullseye is Hawkeye pls bring back rhoded as war machine Plus he has iron man powers because he is a cyborg and merged with the armor.Also Armor height and weight 6'7" and weighs 710 lbs

Hey holo78, I know you left this message for someone else, but I can't stop myself from responding to it. I read the information you updated on the Norman Osborn profile, and it seemed very clear and accurate. I still am not a moderator, so I could not approve the edits, but there is one thing I will tell you about this site that I may not have mentioned before. The moderators wouldn't approve those edits either because you plagiarized them from another site. I read the other marvel fan site's entry, and you took the information from there and pasted it here word for word even down to the note to readers in parentheses. The mods here are not fans of plagiarism, and my last bit of advice to you is don't do it - EVER. Your posts will never get approved if you plagiarize and if it is done too often, you might even get banned for it. The writing must be in your own words or taken out of a Marvel Handbook as long as you cite the source (you should always cite sources anyway, but especially if they are word for word, and that is only out of an Official Marvel Handbook). Again, just trying to pass along some friendly advice to help you out. -- acotilletta


Young Gods - Mielikki

Wezqu - I had received a reply from Jeff Christiansen regarding Mielikki in June...and I never passed it on, sorry! He said: It was intentional. Most of the gods are named for their home dimension (Asgardians, Olympians, Heliopolitans) or other names for their races by their worshippers or other sources. Tuatha de Danaan (sp?) means children of Danu. Several of the races are named for translation of the word "god." Why would the name of the Finnish national epic have to be the name for the race of gods? I know a person who chose that name, and it was not approved as the official name; past handbook entries have used that name, which is now considered just an alternate version. Every profile in the Encyclopaedia Mythologica was approved as the official Marvel version, and that's what the Young Gods entry was based upon. Until in-story evidence ret-cons things as different, Jumala is the name for Marvel's Finnish Pantheon. Thanks for reading!

Heh, I was going to ask about it again soon if you would have not answered. Thanks for the answer. The thing why the national epic name could be used is as Kalevala is a mythological place where magical things are possible. Its also a place where many of the gods are present and have places like Tuonela (finnish version of Hades). Some of the main characters in the story could be considered as gods. Väinämöinen is atleast partly god as his mother is Ilmatar maiden of the air. Lemminkäinen is brought back to life with mystical honey taken from the halls of the over-god Ukko. The honey could be compared to appels of Olympians. Still it doesn't matter that much just wanted to know why it was just Jumala (god) and not plural or something else. Well I hope some writers of marvel would use some of the finnish gods in their stories there could be interesting things they could do with them. Its also a nice fact that Lord of the Rings writer used Kalevala as inspiration when he wrote Lord of the Rings. --Wezqu 07:14, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
