  • Hello. I had some questions for a long time and decided to ask. And yes, I remember that you don’t want to do some things like Marvelpedia, but I’m afraid I cannot do without comparison.
    1) Character naming. Maybe it would be better if every character would have universe indication in the pages's name? Just look to the Bishop. If people didn't read IDW comics, they might think that Jonathan Bishop is Disambiguation page of Bishop . If in the name of each character there will be an indication of the universe, it will be better for users and make work easier for creating new disambiguation page (like it was with Sterns ).
    2) Comics naming. I believe the current situation with the names is little bit confusing. I mean, it's hard to find certain comic issue, if you didn't know its name. Maybe it is used on Marvel/DC wiki but i think most users search Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol 1 1 istead The Turtles' Origin is Told. I understand if user searching TV episode name instead of "TV show Season 1 1", but I can't agree in this case.

    3) Volume list. Another question about comics. Maybe be better, if comics volume list looked like Marvel/DC wiki? For example, i made this in russian wiki.

    • Hi,

      I'd been thinking about walking back a lot about the DC/Marvel comparision because a lot of it doesn't make sense to do here, and other stuff, I guess we'd do if people really wanted, but I think is dumb as shell., personally.

      1) I am absolutely for this.

      2) The way we have it now is so that stories are linked to, as some are individually reprinted and.or stretch across several books. Also, in pretty much every case, that should redirect to the named article, so Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles issue 1 (Mirage) redirects to The Turtles' Origin is Told. That said, the more redirects we have to let people find/link to what they want, the better.

      3) That looks really nice and I think if we have enough images to run with that, we could.

    • Some of the redirects could stand to be filled in where they're lacking. Also, issues and stories aren't always the same article because an issue can contain more than one story, such as a main story and a backup story.
