  • Hey man, how you've been? It's been a long time

    • Busy, kind sir. Haven't really prioritized updating wikis recently but still reading avidly. And you?

        Loading editor
    • Busy myself also. Haven't read much comics in a while though, keep forgetting to, aha. Really sad Outcast was cancelled right when the show got really good. Also sad that one of the actors passed away.

    • That happened to me with Spartacus too. Andy Whitehall. Show couldn't go on with out him.

      I've been reading a lot of Star Wars stuff and some Manga lately. I ordered Omnibus of Second Class and Saga so should be able to check those out soon.

  • Hey Una! I know you were just on here, so you might not come back for a while, but I would greatly appreciate it if you somehow use ESP and see my message very soon.

    Anyway, I don't know if you're aware, but Wikispaces is closing all of its sites within the next year. This includes the Savage Dragon site, which I believe is the best source of information on Savage Dragon, since our pages on that series and its characters have not been updated for some time. They continue to update their site. I just checked, and they have a page for #231, that came out last Wednesday.

    I joined Wikispaces a few minutes ago under the name "Image_Comics_Database" and sent the three organizers of the site the following message:

    "Dear _,

    Greetings! I am one of the administrators for the Image Comics Database, the "world's largest encyclopedia focused on Image Comics" (as it says on our wiki site).
    You can call me Ben. Our website contains over 7,000 pages of material relating to the now 25 year-old Image Comics company. However, it doesn't have everything.

    Getting to the point, I would like to talk about the future of the Savage Dragon wiki on Wikispaces.

    I saw a note put out by Wikispaces that they would be closing all of their sites, including this one, within the next year, possibly in less than 6 months.
    I consider this news to be unfortunate, to say the least. Although the Image wiki does contain a lot of material about Savage Dragon, I believe this site contains more.
    That's a good thing! This site is constantly being updated with modern material. It's a shame that you'll soon have to close up shop. Which is why I'm here.

    I was wondering if I could receive your permission to obtain the material contained in, well, this entire website.
    The purpose of which would be preserving it and the Savage Dragon information, on the Image Comics Database.

    If this is a problem for you in any way then I understand, and I'd be happy to discuss it with you, the other organizers of this site, and the other Image wiki administrators.
    I simply do not want the hard work put into this site to go to waste. You all have done a tremendous job here.

    Just so you know, I'm only a college student myself, so I'm a bit unaware of any legal issues that may pertain to what I'm proposing, if there are any.
    Also, since this site will still be around for at least a few months, I get if you need time to think or discuss it with the other organizers of this site.
    I am sending this same message to the other 2 organizers of this site, and all of you are obviously welcome to join the Image wiki if you wish, no matter what happens.
    And if you do join, you can in fact continue to update Savage Dragon material, on our wiki.

    Please get back to me as soon as you feel you can. Thank you for your consideration.
    - Ben, administrator of the Image Comics wiki"

    Is that alright? To incorporate their material into our own wiki since they'll be shut down soon? Please get back to me as soon as you can, I hope I didn't overstep by messaging them. But if I took fine action, I'd like your support (as long as you can give it) and advice on what to do next and how to cover it.

    I'd take charge of copying and reformatting all of their material onto our own wiki, which I believe will be my 2nd biggest project (my first will start this weekend, when I plan to start a massive rehaul of every Invincible-related page on the whole wiki).

    Again, please get back to me as soon as you can. Sorry for the long message.

    • Hey! Welcome back for a bit! No nothing was resolved, which is why I did not put another update in this thread. I personally have had a lot to deal with in my own life, but I can make more time for this if we can have them put their stuff here and need help with that.

      I think it'd be great if you could make them all admins. Wikispaces closes July 31st I believe, so I hope we can do this all in time. I wouldn't need anything else from you unless they ask, I'd move anything they needed moved.

      Thanks!

  • I recently found out that the Berzerkers (a team from early Youngblood issues) Battleaxe and Grey were later known as Hatchet and Greylore. I created the Battleaxe article a bit before finding out, but in Grey's case - When a character has changed aliases but has no known real name, should the article be titled as the earliest or the latest alias?

    • We don't really have a policy. Generally I'd say most well known but if they are both rather obscure, or tied, I'd stick with earliest.

  • I like Ben 1,000,911, we get along great.  Can he please be a moderator?  He wants it, but will not ask for it directly.   I will be happy to mail you sugar cubes to put on top if needed.

    • Oh man, I missed this. Sorry. I presume you meant admin, I've made him admin. Sorry for missing out on hints that he wanted it. That's what happens when you're ignorant and distracted. I shall await my sugar cubes for my ice cold iced tea.

    • I did mean admin, sorry.  To me its just some work to be done to make the place better for everyone to enjoy.

  • Hey so my one-year mark is tomorrow, and I was wondering if I could get that cool color change to my name now. DeCastilane got one and it looks pretty cool. I don't know if it's for a leadership thing or what, but I'd just like to know

  • I've made a new message because I believe this is on a different topic, one that can be implied generally and that I should know, so please get back to me on this one.

    How do I make a new page if a character's name changes? Do I just make an original new page, or put in the old data on a new page? Also, how can I get rid of the old page, and get the searches for it to pop up for the new page? Basically, how do I make a redirect?

    In Saga #39 (the series continues to be awesome btw), it turns out that the Freelancer Agent's name is Erving. I believe this merits his page title to be changed to Erving (Saga). How can I do this?

      Loading editor
    • Okay please get back to me on this at some point, I'll just fill in the issue for now still calling the character "Freelancer Agent (Saga".

        Loading editor
    • Oh snap! Sure, so the best thing to do is to move it. There's a Move page that User:DeCastilane has not been trained how to use :)

      So to answer directly, I think you need admin powers to "rename" a page, and it should be done with a redirect. An admin (preferably) should run AWB to change all redirects to the new page.

      For right now, ABSOLUTELY just update the current page. I can move it :)

      You know someone else revealed that his name was Erving before that issue. I didn't believe them. I wonder if it was revealed in the end section of the comic. I guess now it's officially confirmed and I look like a fool :)

    • Now I'm wondering how that person got the info, because I sure as heck didn't see it... oh and dw I think the page is updated

  • I have a question, I have forgotten how to delete pictures.

    I uploaded the wrong picture and want to remove it.  I uploaded the correct one to replace it with, but completely forgotten how to get rid of my mistake.  

    I didn't do this here, but on another wiki.  I'm just trying to cover my backside before someone finds out.

  • Yeah. I just didn't know that Saga already released two more issues since #36. Can we make pages for those? I'll fill them and everything.
