  • 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.

  • 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.

    • I'm waiting for the entire season to air before I watch it. Because of that, I'm not able to contribute to the wiki.

  • 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?

    • 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.

      Loading editor
    • 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.

  • Just a reminder: make sure your X-Men: Dark Phoenix images are added to the X-Men: Dark Phoenix/Gallery page and have proper categories attached.

  • Hey! Just splitting what I have to announce into two messages to make it more digestible.

    Just letting you know Fandom plans to extend a test it's running on other wikis to this one. It aims at improving the search engine ranking for wikis including this one.

    Some details: We will be automatically redirecting anonymous users who land on file pages to the first article page that the file is used on. Our hope is that this will help anonymous users find what they're looking for more easily. During the test, we'll measure whether this has a positive impact on search engine rankings.

    Logged-in users will see absolutely no change, so you may not notice anything of this test - I'm just letting you know out of courtesy and in case anonymous users approach you with questions.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

    Thanks! :)

  • Hey again! I've not forgotten about the infobox conversation, just got a few things to take care of with tighter deadlines.

    So I bring some great news on a new feature introduced at Fandom!

    Special:Analytics is a new statistics tracking tool for admins on all Fandom wikis.

    This feature includes some really insightful statistics that should allow you guys to inform some wiki decisions, such as:

    • Top viewed pages
    • # of page views (daily over the past 30 days)
    • Most visited files
    • Desktop vs mobile sessions
    • and more!

    So as I mentioned above, this feature is really great as it allows you to see what areas are doing very well and how you can capitalise on them. For example, the majority of your readership are viewing the wiki from mobile phones, currently sitting at 66%(!). A really good way to accommodate those users would be to keep your mobile main page updated frequently, such as including details of the Dark Phoenix home release there. This way those users are kept updated and informed.

    Hopefully you like this feature, it's been highly requested for some time and we would really appreciate your feedback on it. For more help with it, please feel free to ask me questions and also refer to these two super useful articles:

    Thanks! :)
