  • What's up big, tall, and handsome. Whatcha doin with Image_Comics_Database:ParentPage/Monstress as opposed to Monstress?

    • The Parent Pages are a separate Wikia project than normal article space and we have to promote them through a specific URL. It's not replacing the existing Monstress article it's just a totally different site feature.

  • Some dude created a bunch of non-templated characters a long time ago that I have only recently been made aware are astro city characters. He did an amazing job of adding one or two sentences to sum up their super careers. Category:Astro City Characters

    Do you want a {{AffiliateBox}} like thing on these pages to your wikia character pages too? While clearly the pride and joy of image comics, I can't imagine these pages will get any more attention given the near twenty year publication date history has passed. I'd imagine that itch has passed if it ever existed for those AC image fans lol.

    • Would you mind if we moved that info over to the Astro City Wiki?

      It kind of doesn't make sense to host pages for Astro City characters here, since they had another 10 years of publication after leaving Image. Even if those articles were updated to become perfect, they would still cut off awkwardly halfway through their histories.

      The system we're trying to implement is one where 100% of the character pages are on Astro City Wiki, but 100% of the comics pages are on DC Database/Image Database. That way you don't have to worry about upkeep on those pages, but the Astro City Wiki will send traffic to you for every appearance and citation. This is how it currently works on the Confessor page, almost every single comic book link is directing traffic to the IDB. This is good for traffic on both wikis, and more importantly linking to each other is good for SEO.

    • So diplomatic, "move that info" lol, we have like a sentence per character. Viewers would be best suited by going to your pages for the characters. I have no intention of wanting updates to our pages on this property. I think my question was how to best link.

      If you don't like the info box, I could replace all our character pages with redirect links to your wiki like so: Jeremiah Parrish.

      It doesn't redirect with an interwiki link automatically but at least it points them to the right page. I've learned it's best not to let a link page die or delete them for SEO purposes. From a user perspective, it points them to the best source of info as well (which is your pages).

      Is that how you're handling issue references for this new model? I'm secretly hoping that if you agree to use the redirect you'll just yell, "consensus!!"...
