Wikia Fan Brain Video Series on Arrow & The Flash Wiki Edit

Hey, MakeShift!

We're pretty pumped at Wikia for season 3 of Arrow and the premiere of The Flash! We've been planning some things for the new season and wanted to share them with you for your approval and input. 

Once the season begins, we're going to launch a new version of our weekly Fan Brain trivia video series. Here's an example of one we did for the "Tremors" episode of Arrow last season:

http://arrow.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Gcheung28/Arrow:_Fan_Brain_-_Tremors

The idea is that fans watch the show, and pick out bits of trivia/references/Easter eggs, then Wikia's video team puts together a cool video that highlights them and gives a special credit to the fans who contributed. We promote these around Wikia.

Ideally, these will be created in collaboration with the Arrow & Flash Wiki, as well as the DC Database -- residing on both wikias. I have buy-in from an admin on DC Database, and was hoping to get feedback from you about it. Is it something you'd like to help promote and that the community would like to be a part of?

We'd just be looking for contributors, and permission to place/promote these on the community in various places.

Let me know your thoughts. I can tell you more if you have any questions. Thanks!! Brian@Wikia 17:25, September 4, 2014 (UTC)

Considering the fact that The CW renewed the Arrow TV series for a third season, do you think you can finally create a relationships sector in characters articles, or at least create relationships articles for the character like Oliver Queen's relationships, Laurel Lance's relationships, etc. think you.197.229.93.214 12:15, September 5, 2014 (UTC)

Why was the Starling City Police Department article delete.197.229.93.214 12:15, September 5, 2014 (UTC)

about the relationships thing, there's a possibility of pages being created, however they'd be sub-pages to the character pages, not a seperate article, as they're pointless, and I believe MS deleted the page by accident, thinking it was a category looking at the history.

Arrow & The Flash Community AppEdit

Hello! Wikia is in the process of working on a Arrow & The Flash Wiki community app and we could really use your help! Would you or the other admins mind helping us curate categories for the Arrow & The Flash Community App? The curation lives on this page and there are instructions on there for adding/removing categories that will appear in the app. If you need an example, the Marvel Wiki has theirs sort of set up. Let me know if you have any questions! P.S. The page says Game Guides right now but that will change eventually! Grace @Wikia (profile)•(talk) 21:28, September 5, 2014 (UTC)

That's correct! This app will act as a "guide" for people so it will just be readable. What we need is for the important categories that people should have in a guide to be listed out so we can have it show in the app appropriately. Grace @Wikia (profile)•(talk) 18:24, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

Awesome :) We're actually hoping to get these community apps out next week (sorry, not a lot of time, I know). So it would be great if we could get some categories settled in the next few days! I, or someone from my team, can definitely help out if needed too! Grace @Wikia (profile)•(talk) 21:47, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

Cool, so on the special page I linked you to (sorry, we had forgotten to turn on the extension), there are directions for what to do. Essentially, the main page of the app will have a portal section showing 6 tiles and then a "More..." button that will lead to a full list. We just need curation of categories for the app so people can go to the most popular/relevant categories immediately instead of having to search for them. Let me know if that makes sense or if the directions on the Special Page needs more explanation! Grace @Wikia (profile)•(talk) 21:59, September 8, 2014 (UTC)

RE: DC Comics Edit

Farooq/Blackout and Dr. Tina McGee need to be included in the upcoming characters of The Flash and Digger Harkness on Arrow. Also I found out that someone has included the comic book character Multiplex (he is a Firestorm character) in the recurring cast of The Flash (it was on the page for some weeks) but there was no source and I searched on the web for any announcements but there wasn't any so I removed it.—TG90 (talk page) 18:28, September 15, 2014 (UTC)

Hi I just wonder, shouldn't we mention the fact that the show changed the origin of Green Arrow (he isn't an orphan anymore as his parents did not get killed in Africa) and as a consequence it inspired the writers of the Green Arrow comic book to change the story as well, making it similar to the show? Most importantly the show established Moira Queen being on Oliver's life much longer. Before that, Moira was only shown in flashbacks, taking place when Oliver was only a child, and she was never involved with the company. The most famous storyline she was involved in was that she got killed by lions along with her husband. The show was the first to feature the character prominently and actually explore who she really was, taking her to new places and involving her to further storylines. In Arrow she outlived her husband and was alive during Oliver's adulthood, she ran the company and knew that Oliver was a hero. All these details were not part of the comic book canon before Arrow, as she was a very minor character, but after the show they were all added to the character's history. The show was the one that shaped the character to who she is today, so I believe it should be counted as one of its contributions to the comics. The section is titled General impact of Arrow and The Flash in DC Comics so I do not believe that is irrelevant. Sorry if I sound as a nerd but I really believe that movies, TV series and other adaptations of comic books actually influence the characters\storylines they are exploring and many times they reshape/revamp them for the mainstream comics, even if they just add some small details, so its kind of the legacy of the show isn't? That is why I am asking you to reconsider your decision.—TG90 (talk page) 14:39, October 14, 2014 (UTC)

Hi MakeShift, I was looking at the page with the DC characters on Arrow and I was wondering why did you remove Quentyn Larry Lance? He is a comic book character as Larry Lance is the father of Dinah Laurel Lance in the comics, as he is on the show. It has been confirmed that his whole name is Quentyn Larry Lance but he just uses the name "Quentyn" as his first name, like Dinah Laurel Lance uses the name "Laurel" instead of Dinah on the show. Not be confused with her mother, who in the comics is named Dinah Drake Lance and on the show is simply named "Dinah Lance".—TG90 (talk page) 13:17, October 16, 2014 (UTC)

Hello, I a just want to remind you about Lance and also you have to move Daniel Brickwell from the mentioned character and put him in the upcoming ones, as it was announced that he will appear on the show. Moreover, I noticed that when you added the new characters that appeared on Arrow you accidentally used a bulleted list instead of a numbered list, which was used in the previous characters. Lastly you have to include in this same list Ted Grant and Mark Shaw, as they have already appeared on the show.—TG90 (talk page) 14:18, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

RedirectEdit

A user has redirected a couple episode pages so now the linking for a lot of pages are now linking to the characters rather than the episodes.

Joseph FalkEdit

This page keeps being changed in a similar manner, having the entire 'Personality' section turned into a single sentence. Might it be a good idea to reset the Protection on the page, prevent changes by anons? {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 21:10, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

Accuracy vs. consistencyEdit

An anon keeps changing Appearances to Appearance where such is (at least at present) singular. "Appearance" can, however, more easily be mistaken for 'look' by non-native speakers. Should all the pages be the same, or is it better to allow this grammmatical correction? {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 17:14, September 17, 2014 (UTC)

File Name ChangeEdit

Guillermo Barrera's info box picture needs a name change.

what do you mean by that exactly? Wraiyf You never know when life will hit you hard, but then you hit it back. 08:16, September 21, 2014 (UTC)
I assume you're talking about on the right of the wordmark, though beyond that I'm also confused what you mean. —MakeShift (talk page) 08:59, September 21, 2014 (UTC)


RE: PolicyEdit

Are you talking about the whole 'In "Episode"' on a heap of pages? If yeah, then I absolutely hate them. From day 1 they appeared I've been trying to get rid of them, it's just a matter of rewriting them. —MAKESHIFT (talk) 06:30, June 16, 2014 (UTC)

Yes. I spend most of my time on the Marvel Cinematic Universe Wiki and I know it used to be like this one is with Movies instead of Episode. I know one of the people who did a lot of work to change that was Uskok. He might have helpful ideas about how to rework the wiki into a in-universe perspective.Coluanprime (talk) 00:40, September 22, 2014 (UTC)

DC Bracket TournamentEdit

Hey, MakeShift! Thanks again for helping us with the Arrow & The Flash app, but I'm back with another request, sorry! We just started a DC Heroes vs. Villains bracket tournament over on DC Wiki, and I made a blog post about it here! I was wondering if it would be alright to promote it on the main page and/or add something to the Community Messages section just so more users see it? Let me know if there's one option you prefer over the other, and I hope you participate too :D Grace @Wikia (profile)•(talk) 21:45, September 24, 2014 (UTC)

NoticeEdit

I was recommended by the founder of the Gotham Wiki to inform you that I am adopting the Constantine Wiki. He told me you had plans for that wiki although they were "a while ago". Will you be okay with this?

OmegaWulfgar (talk) 00:59, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

I was wondering, if it's not too much of a hassle, could you requisiton a character infobox for me to use on the Constantine Wiki? The one that is currently being used is insufficient and does not suit my criteria. I'm not a fan of directly copying templates from another wiki but it is urgent. Thanks for the help. 

OmegaWulfgar (talk) 14:58, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

Actually, nevermind, have found a cleaner and more suitable template.

Keystone City PageEdit

I was about to add a Keystone City page when I noticed a warning that you had deleted it.  I wanted to check with you first, but I am happy to create the page and add all proper references, etc. according to policy.  Just wanted to see if there was something I could be missing. 

Maybe it fits into the Flash section of the Wiki?

What I think we know about Keystone so far from Arrow . . .


  • Diggle mentions to Ollie that the Royal Flush Gang started their crime spree in Keystone
  • Iron Heights is near Keystone CIty

Universities CategoryEdit

I made a University category and a stub for MIT.  With the news about Ray Palmer being cast (it's real not a rumor, right?), I thought there might be an appearance of Ivy University, but we will see.

The only other University, I recall is Central City Univ. 

I also put a tag on the MIT page/stub.  Not sure what sort of image is appropriate or even if one is needed. I also held off adding the anticipated Season 3 appearance of MIT until the episode airs.  What's best policy on that?  Regardless, that's why I tagged the article as a stub.  Any help modifying it is welcome. Maskatron (talk) 01:34, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

Do you think you can please rename the Oliver Queen's team article to Team Arrow, considering the fact that Felicity Smoak has affectionately called the unit "Team Arrow" after Roy Harper suggested it.41.151.74.95 15:30, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

Parent PageEdit

Hello, Makeshift!

My name is Scott, and I'm part of the Community team with Wikia. I'm reaching out today to see if it's alright if we set up an informative "Parent Page" here on the Arrow/Flash Wiki. If so, would you and/or the other admins have any interest in helping us fill it out, since you know the subject far better than we do?

Here is a Parent Page example from The Hunger Games Wiki to give you an idea of what the page entails. Essentially, it's a guide for parents about the age range for different wikis.

Let me know if you have any questions! We are planning to start setting up the pages over the next week or so. Thank you for your time!

Characters like John Diggle, Joe West and Eddie Thawne, I have noticed in their Biography sector, or articles in general, that their last names are used instead of their first names, I can understand if it is in an episode Where there is a character that has the same first name as them, but in the rest of the episodes, so why do you use their last names, instead of their first names.41.151.177.179 22:17, October 28, 2014 (UTC)

In the characters biography sector, that there is information from both the TV series of The Flash and comic book series The Flash: Season Zero, it is difficult for readers and editors to tell which information is about the TV series or the comic book series.41.151.177.179 22:17, October 28, 2014 (UTC)

A couple of my friends has made complaints about the Administrator TimeShade, he blocks them from The Arrow & The Flash Wiki, just because they did not register for the wiki, and assumes it is the same editor and blocks them, just for that editor's mistake, so do you think you can remove TimeShade as the administrator of the Arrow & The Flash Wiki; permanently, thank you.41.151.177.179 22:17, October 28, 2014 (UTC)

man in yellowEdit

I am wondering if you recall what character (dunno if Barry, his dad, Joe) called him this, and in what episode, as including a quote where a character directly refers to the murderer by this title would be useful.

I did not know the phrase I used even was used by a character, thought I was just describing him as he looked, although perhaps I jumped to that phrasing based on subconsciously remembering what a character called him...

Since the guy does not have any lines yet, using one where he is given a title by another char is the best use of a quote on the top I can think of. --talk2ty 05:34, November 20, 2014 (UTC)

Episode Article ImagesEdit

I named them after the episodes so that it was easier to find on my computer, but then I thought it could be easier having the images for the articles the name of the episodes like I had them, as it would be much easier to find them for each article, than having to look for a certain image with our eyes, instead of the name :P but that's upto you whether you're welcome to let me change that aha.

Template ideaEdit

So was playing around with idea's for templates and thought of something like this on my sb wiki: Template:Production. Right now I think it may be useful just as it's easier since you just need to type in dates. Only problem is the tense for when filming and when completed. Perhaps if you like the idea, you can alter it?
