Article stubsEdit

Since this tag has been added to so many pages of late, I think a clear definition of what it means to this wiki would help me. {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 05:58, September 2, 2014 (UTC)

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: Spam Edit

Yeah, I saw them when I got up, I rollbacked about 10 or so, before heading to work. Wraiyf You never know when life will hit you hard, but then you hit it back. 11:21, September 14, 2014 (UTC)

So this happened. http://flash-cw.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:3275 Neptune - Everything's impossible until somebody does it. 05:04, September 15, 2014 (UTC)

Huh. Interesting. We'll see how that develops. —MakeShift (talk page) 08:30, September 15, 2014 (UTC)

Good news Will! Look at Matt's latest reply, http://flash-cw.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:3261 Neptune - Everything's impossible until somebody does it. 21:39, September 15, 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)

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.TimeShade  05:15, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

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

NavigationEdit

Can I take a picture background of the wiki navigation?  DeXart

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)

Great, I'll add a bit in Community Messages now :) Thanks! Grace @Wikia (profile)•(talk) 15:52, September 25, 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.

OmegaWulfgar (talk) 18:40, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

Suggestion. Unsolicited. Sorry. Edit

Just a friendly observation, Protect pages related to policies, management. Its defended, from a mass vandalism attack way. Anyway I just felt that needed to be suggested. Zane T 69 (talk) 01:18, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

Ok, just thought I'd point it out. I'v had to rebuild a 60% destroyed wiki. If I seemed rude, i'm sorry. I like the wiki, though i'm not here much. Zane T 69 (talk) 01:29, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

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

Hi my Name is emallam. Im new here and strating new on a wiki. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Emallam (talkcontribs)


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)

Do you think you can please unlock the Oliver Queen, Roy Harper, Slade Wilson, Isabel Rochev, and Thea Queen articles, thank you.41.151.74.95 15:30, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

Meeting Edit

Hey Will, can you message me when you get on tonight? I'd like to have a word with you, TS, and Wraiyf about some ideas that I've had. Neptune - Everything's impossible until somebody does it. 19:02, September 29, 2014 (UTC)
