  • The infobox pictures are kind of a mess, so I have some suggestions:

    1. DP Pics - The character posters used for the infoboxes are kind of terrible. I mean, they're cool as character posters, but they're hard to make out and are really ugly as infobox pics. I can barely tell who Magneto or Quicksilver are. I suggest we use the promotional images of the characters that are easier on the eyes (for example, https://xmenmovies.fandom.com/wiki/File:XMDP_Professor_X_Promo.jpg) instead.

    2. Older/Younger/RT/OT/WTF? - This one's driven me up the wall for some time now. Most of the time, for numerous infobox pics, we'll have something like "Younger Self/Older Self", "Revised Timeline/Original Timeline", "RT Younger/OT Younger/Older Self", "RT Older/Prime Self/OT Older", etc. That's actually a great way to do that, and makes the jumbled timeline of these incredible films a hell of a lot easier to understand... BBUUUUUTTT with that great understanding also comes my great confusion from its inconsistency. First off, we're supposed to have the main picture, the one seen when you open the page, should be the one seen most recently, and they should be ordered as such. So Professor X's pictures should be "Younger Self/RT Older/OT Older", right? But we have "Younger Self/OT Older/RT Older". Wait, sorry, scratch that! It's "Younger Self/OlderSelf/2029"!? Why!? And Wolverine! His is probably the worst! The Logan poster should be first, then the Prime Self, then his Older Self in the original timeline! But instead, his Prime Self is first, his OT Older Self is next, and his RT Older Self is last! AND they're not even labeled correctly! If you're going to do this, at least have it be "Prime Self/OT Older/RT Older", not "1973/2023/2029"! 2029 doesn't even exist in the revised timeline, and I'm pretty sure 2023 doesn't look like that in RT either! Years should not be cited as infobox picture names!!!

    All of this is ridiculous, and yes, I know, the XMCU timeline is insane and self-contradictory on a regular basis, but the point of a wiki should be to assemble information and add clarity to it, not confuse people even more!!!



    I'm sorry, I know that's a lot, I just gotta get that all off my chest. As much as I love these movies, there's no denying the timeline makes zero sense, but that's what we're here for, and keeping things the way they are now really isn't helping. I just think these movies deserve the best wiki we can give.

  • Hi. Last night I was finally able to see The New Mutants and I had a question about Limbo.

    In the movie Illyana mentions that she created this place to feel safe. So, is Limbo Illyana's creation or did she simply open a portal to that dimension and believe that it was actually her own cremation.

    Thanks.

  • Hey! So in theory, we are looking at The New Mutants again next month in theaters. Things are very unpredictable at the moment still, but keeping optimism that people can go to see it at the theater safely next month - do you feel there is any more prep we need to do? We handled the wiki redesign but I can take another look at that if you would like. I know things are uncertain but it's good to be as prepared as we can. Hopefully you are keeping safe! --Spongebob456 talk@fandom

    • Hi. Apologies for the late response. I sadly won't be able to help out here much due to responsibilities in real life. So I think it's best if you find a new admin who can take over my responsibilities so the wiki will continue to thrive without me. Thank you for helping me build this place to be the best that it can be.

    • Hi, thanks for making the time to reply - please make sure you prioritise responsibilities in real life, the wiki will still be here. Especially given the current world situation, keeping yourself and those around you save should take priority. I have been working with MJLogan in the last couple of weeks on the wiki and it looks like the movie is finally coming next month all being well. Hopefully you are able to return to the wiki one day, especially once the last FOX universe X-Men movie has aired! Take care. :) --Spongebob456 talk@fandom

      Ah, I noticed they weren't editing as much but I didn't know it would be a resignation of sorts. And yes, you may do as you wish and separate the trivia.

  • Hey again! How are you? I posted some Fandom updates on the UCP in Discussions today. Feel free to check them out!

    I also wanted to check in on how The New Mutants prep is going. Is there anything else I can help with? Not far away now! It's looking like you're getting a few more active users here which is great. That will be really useful come release. :) --Spongebob456 talk@fandom 14:25, March 8, 2020 (UTC)

  • So, I'm confused. We have the most recent versions of the X-Men characters we've seen as the first infobox picture, right? So why is Wolverine's Prime Self picture first? And why is Caliban's Younger picture first? And why are some labeled with years and not Younger Self/Older Self like the others? And why isn't Deadpool's Weapon XI foorm in his infobox? Sorry if this feels like a lot, I'm just really confused! Thanks man and sorry again!

    • Sorry for the late response. Our general rule of thumb is to use "Revised Timeline/Original Timeline" for most characters, but we make exceptions for certain characters. "Younger Self/Older Self" is usually for characters from the original X-Men films whose younger counterparts are played by different actors, but will "grow" into their older counterparts in the franchise's future. For example, Professor X was portrayed by Patrick Stewart in the original movies. In the newer movies, his younger self was played by James McAvoy, but we know from Days of Future Past and Logan that McAvoy's Professor X eventually ages into Stewart's Professor X. Characters who were simply recast due to the timeline changes will get "Revised Timeline/Original Timeline".

      We use the younger picture first because that's the version of the character that is most recent to audiences. With Wolverine, because he was practically immortal and played by the same actor across all the films, we had to use special designations to show how he aged across time. And in Deadpool's case, his Weapon XI form didn't have an official promo poster, so we didn't include it.

  • Hey! How's it going? I noticed the new trailer news which is very exciting! Is there anything we can expect from the movie do you know, any new updates? There are a bunch of rumours flying around.

  • Hello, I was just wondering if you still intend on contributing to the Harley Quinn Wiki, as you are the only admin and it has been quite some time since you last edited there.

  • Hey there! Just checking in to see how things are going (cool name change!).

    How are things progressing with the infobox links? I saw your Announcement for those and we discussed it with some users, hopefully they have joined the effort to add those links.

    Is there anything else I can help with at all?

      Loading editor
    • I've been adding the links as I edit pages, but I don't think the rest of the community is concerned with them tbh. I'm thinking of creating another announcement to encourage users to help with the links.

      I was wondering if you could modify the gallery template to be in line with the infoboxes?

        Loading editor
    • Hey! Sounds good. A little nudge now and then works well.

      When you mean modify in line with the infoboxes, do you mean so it literally lines up? Like:

      Wolverine example

      One thing I will say about that is, for portability sake, you would be just as good to post a link to the gallery within the infobox itself. This is similar to how the SpongeBob Wiki does it with their links to subpages. This way you create something that works within a portable design and doesn't take up space within the article.

      Either way though, I have created a solution here that uses Portable Infobox code and will look like the example in the image above with the added CSS. :)

  • I'm sorry but did i miss something about hydra? I thought they belonged to the mcu. How come is Stryker is Hydra? Same as Norris and Marcus Lyman.

    • They were said to be HYDRA in the novelization of X2, but we don't consider it to be canon. If you find any reference to HYDRA on the wiki pages, please don't hesitate to remove it.
