Realities query

Hi Alex! Question: If I wanted to concentrate on writing up profiles of Marvel realities, do I need to limit myself to those which actually have a numerical designation? Or, could I also write up ones w/o a number, and give them a brief written description (like "Earth where Iron Man Sells Out")? Thanks in advance. --IronHube at 11:42 15 April 2007 (EDT)

Hi, Hube! I have to admit that I don´t know the answer to your question! Maybe you should ask DragynWulf about that. He should know it, I hope ;) Sorry! Zeraphyne 17:17, 15 April 2007 (CDT)

No sweat, Alex. I did discuss it with DW when he e-mailed me (about an unrelated matter). The answer is, you can only use those with official # designations.  :-) --IronHube at 18:36 15 April 2007 (EDT)

That said, many of the alterate universes have designations already. Check out the Alt. Universes Handbook or other Handbooks - or post a question to my User Page.--MikeFichera 00:58, 16 April 2007 (CDT)

Well good place to find almost all the alternative earth designations is in wikipedia under "Multiverse (Marvel Comics)". Of course there is a chance that there might be mistakes but most of them are right. There should be almost all the alternative earths that have been mentioned in the Marvel books. --Wezqu 04:05, 16 April 2007 (EDT)

How about the unofficial Appendix site? They have many more "numbered Earths" than the Wikipedia entry, and at the bottom they state that they all are "official designations." An accurate claim? -- IronHube at 15:43 16 April 2007 (EDT)

Do not use Wikipedia for any information or any other website for that matter. You should only be using information that you see in the comics themselves. Wikipedia, MarvelDirectory.com, and Marvel Database are unreliable, anyone can put any faults information anywhere. They do not verify the information listed, therefore it is unreliable. The same goes for websites. You do not know if the person(s) running the website are using information that is bias or not. Read the comics for yourselves, because the only person you can trust is yourself. There is an OHotMU Alternate Universe that you can read to find many Earth designations, that can be used, but definatly not Wikipedia. --DragynWulf 23:38, 16 April 2007 (CDT) DragynWulf (Moderator)

Creator names

We've removed the creator names from the profile categories. Also, any reason you deleted "the team of interstellar freebooters known as the" (Starjammers) from the Magique profile?--MikeFichera 22:59, 4 April 2007 (CDT), moderator

Actually, I removed this sentence from a lot of Imperial Guard member bio's because if you read the whole bio, the same sentence shows up before. From what I can see whoever did those bios had some standard-sentences, which he put together depending on the character. And this one part repeats itself, which looks a bit weird after my opinion. By the way, why did you throw out the creator-profiles?

Zeraphyne

Thanks for the info. As for the creator category, Marvel's legal dept. said to nix them. Some cases are obvious, while others are too contentious as to who did the originating. Still reviewing some of your old posts, btw.--MikeFichera 21:56, 5 April 2007 (CDT)

Didn't get to read your response - accidentally wiped out when my post was approved...Please post it again?--MikeFichera 00:42, 7 April 2007 (CDT)

I only wrote that I thanked you for the info-update on the creator-profiles and that it was nice to know that my old posts are being reviewed. On top of that, I asked you for a big favor. I made a new glossary entry about shape-shifting, which I could have linked to several times by now, so I wanted to ask you if you could review this one first. If it is too big or something wrong with it, I can change it! Thanks a lot for your time! -- Zeraphyne

Kaptain Briton

While updating the Psylocke-file, I found two different statements about the Earth from which Kaptain Briton derives. I found Earth-794 and Earth-839 as possibilities. I found exactly those two everywhere around the internet. Do you have an idea which one is true? I´ll do the changes myself as soon as I get the necessary informations! Thank you very much! --Zeraphyne

The thing with Captain Britain is that there are litteratly thousands of alternate reality versions of him including alternate reality versions of those alternate reality versions, so it is most likely that there are two Kaptain Britons. --DragynWulf 20:30, 16 March 2007 (CDT)

Just wantd to let you know another Handbook writer informed me that Kaptain Briton is indeed from Earth-794. --DragynWulf 15:46, 10 April 2007 (CDT)

Posting on other poster’s User page

Please do not post on other poster's Userpage. That is an area for that poster only to post what they want even if there are typos. If you'd like to talk to them, please use the Discussion/Talk page instead since that is what it is intended for. --DragynWulf 17:58, 10 April 2007 (CDT) (Moderator)

I'm sorry, of course you're right! Obviously I was a bit overzealous! I'll write him about the typos! Thanks for the info! -- Zeraphyne

Self Approval Rights

Stop approving other peoples edits you dont have the right to do that. Those rights you got are self-approving rights so you can only approve your own edits not someone elses. Admis are the only ones that can approve other peoples edits. You just might approve some edit that has false info or edit that has been copied from somewhere else. I'm not a admin but I cant let you brake the rules. --Wezqu 12:39, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

Wezqu is correct. You should only be approving your own edits and no one elses. There are already too many profiles that have incorrect information becuase someone approved it when they should not have or typos all over (Loki for example, which is why it was completely redone). So please do not approve anyone else's profiles/edits. It is understandable that you are only trying to help, but we need/want the information to be correct. --DragynWulf 12:55, 12 April 2007 (CDT) (Moderator)

I'm sorry, guys! I wasn't aware that my approval rights were only restricted to my own edits. Like DragynWulf said, I was just trying to take some work of the admins back. But don't worry, I only approved minor edits or edits, where I'm absolutely sure that they were right. Won't happen again! Zeraphyne 14:12, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

Not blaming you of anything just wanted you to know. I did the same mistake when I got my self-approval rights. As you understand that its better this way that admins only can approve other peoples edits so the site wont get wrong information or brake any laws like some people tend to copy text from wikipedia or someother site. Like for excample when I first came here and saw bio about Hybrid (Scott Washington) it was full of mistakes like his symbiote costumes was formed by five different symbiotes when in reality it was made of just four. The fifth symbiote and its host is still roaming around Marvel Universe. Another big mistake was that he was said to have join New Warriors who he never have been a member of. He is a friend of Justice and he did offer him to join the team but he declined. There is still mistakes many of them some of them are so minor that you wont notice them if you haven't read the books. You are free to correct mistakes and write profiles. Good contributors are always welcome. Keep up the good work. --Wezqu 14:59, 12 April 2007 (CDT)

Hi, Guys! I have a little problem! I can´t approve my edits anymore and I´m not sure if it is just a general problem because of the sites relaunch or if I lost that right because I wasnt around for some time?! Anyone knows something? Thanks in advance! Zeraphyne 14:12, 15 June 2007 (CDT)
