  • Do you guys not use appearance tags here? It seems like when i put it on characters it just replaces their name?

    • I tried to get a workable template for that by working with some guys over at the DC wiki, but never got it right. As you can tell, I don't often work on wikis any more, but I'd be willing to give it another go as we now have to add the appearance category manually in order to get it indexed. I can show you an example of that if you'd like. Let me know your thoughts.

    • I'd love for the appearance tag to get fixed. I just want to know if I should use it or not because right now it hides character names...

    • For now, I'd just add the category manually when you're editing the page. Example: Anthony Chu/Appearances.

    • I think I just finally understood you were saying with add the tag manually at the bottom of the issue for each comic like "[[Category:Anthony Chu (Chew)/Appearances]]"?

      Do you have any idea where the issue is for why when you use the appearance template it erases the character name? I saw some differences on "Template:Character_Appearances" where in the first message block there seems like an extra pipe on DC wiki for usage help that the one here is missing?

      Also after the last "{{#ifexist:" there's a big difference as well. Did you say there was a sandbox I could play in to see if those were it?

    • I'll take a look again at them this weekend and hit up a DC admin if need be. The  Sandbox can be found here.

    • I'm clearly not a coder :) I tried looking at it but I honestly am not smart enough. I'm more of a marketing guy. I was thinking about finishing up some of the more popular selling image comics (non TWD and Invincible as they already have strong wikias) like Saga and Black Science and then reaching out to the fragmented one-off wikias that all the people started creating to try and centralize this with sister links or something. It would be nice to grow the image community and improve this site’s SEO.

      I also tried creating a page to try and fix the location template but that clearly didn't work. I flagged it for deletion as I didn’t want to keep slop around. I also uploaded some images and there was actually a better name for them but I didn’t have access to rename them. Do you think you could grant me either additional access to take care of these or admin powers so I can clean this up? I’ve been watching the updates to see if anyone else contributes and there hasn’t been much but would like to help keep things clean if possible. Let me know.
