Hi, welcome to Mobius Encyclopaedia! Thanks for your edit to the Chaos Control page.
Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! Please make sure to make yourself familiar with how our wikia works and check out our Manual of Style! -- CrazyLea (Talk) 17:06, April 22, 2011
Thanks for helping me with my editing. -- Halibee
Just so you know, while your edits are appreciated, most of Ian Flynn's Q&A with the Sonic characters was just for fun and most of the dialogue is not necessarily pertinent background information. Just a heads-up. Arbiter0416 11:44, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
Manual of Style Edit
If you are going to contribute more to the site by adding up-to-date information (i.e. Sonic the Hedgehog), please refer to the Mobius Encyclopaedia:Manual of Style to keep the information in sync with everything else. If you have already seen the page, I apologize for this. Thanks. Merricks 22:09, June 21, 2011 (UTC)
Yo. I see some significant problems with the contributions you've been making to various pages for the past few days, so I'm going to make this simple for you- not trying to be mean, but the message needs to get across.
ONE- if the article is about a person, place, or thing within the comic, updates need to be written as though they have already happened a long time ago- i.e PAST TENSE. If the article is of an issue itself, THEN the summmary can be written as you have done so far- i.e PRESENT TENSE. I don't have the time to do it myself, but I would really appreciate it if you would go back through all the articles you have contributed to so far, and alter the writing to fit what came before your changes.
TWO- Articles like Sonic and Sally's are already incredibly long and will get longer with every new issue. Stories from years ago have been given condensed summaries covering multiple issues, but lately single issues have gotten at least one large paragraph for what each character did in that story. This is making these articles abnormally large and awkward to read. I would really appreciate it if you could greatly condense the info you've put in so far, in other words- PLEASE NO BLOW-BY-BLOW DESCRIPTION FOR EVERY ACTION AND LINE SAID BY CHARACTERS UNLESS IT IS FOR THE ISSUE ARTICLE ITSELF. Nice little summaries like "Sonic faced off against Naugus with the Sword of LIght, but the wizard soon gained the upper hand and began to manipulate the Council's decision-making against Sonic with his magic" is a wonderful example of how to improve on what you have so far.
Sorry if this seems rather excessive to you, but I just am trying to do my part to help you understand how to improve the quality of what we are trying to create for the general public. Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any questions! Sen10elS 20:55, June 25, 2011 (UTC)
- Chubzac, I've noticed your edits are still not adhering to the Manual of Style for this wiki. For one, as Sen10els mentioned, a majority of your paragraphs in the character articles are in the incorrect tense. They need to be made in the correct tense as stated in the above post.
- As of right now, I don't want you contributing to any new articles until you fix all of your contributions to reflect on the Manual of Style. I'm going to give you until Sunday to rectify this. If it isn't done (yes, I will be checking), I will go through and delete every contribution that you made that is against the Manual of Style.
- But if you ignore this warning and continue to make sloppy contributions to this wiki, I will undo all of of them and ban you for two weeks. I do not want it to come to that, but I want you to know that I'm serious about this. If you don't remember what you contributed to, go to the contributions tab on the top of your userpage, click on it, and go through all of them on the list and make the necessary corrections. If you need any further help on making proper edits, go to the Manual of Style, look up proper tense structure online, or ask a senior user or admin. Good luck. Arbiter0416 03:10, July 6, 2011 (UTC)
If all of your contributions have been corrected by yourself or another user, then don't worry about it. But I will still be checking the articles you contributed to on Sunday, and if I find any discrepancies, I will revert them. However, I have noticed the corrections you made on the Snively article and I'm beginning to see an improvement. Keep it up! Arbiter0416 04:07, July 6, 2011 (UTC)
Manual of Style Edit
Hi there, I just wanted to direct you to the Manual of Style on this site, which tells you the layout for articles. I noticed in some of your recent edits you've failed to put the article's title at the start of the article (for example, the article on Abby from No Zone doesn't being like "Abby (No Zone) is a Mobian...". Also please preview your edits before posting them, checking for spelling and grammar mistakes. Other than that, happy editing. - Dimitri the Echidna 05:59, July 20, 2011 (UTC)
Re:image question Edit
Dunno.... I assumed the idea actually was you guys ask us administrators to upload specific images and tell us what issues you want them pulled from. At least that's what I thought was meant by that. I'd check with Arbiter0416 or ThotPrad to get a better explanation if I were you. They'd know more than me. Sen10elS 02:12, July 25, 2011 (UTC)
Like this. EDIT: Sorry, made a couple of mistakes to get this right. Simply copy the image link, go to edit on the image uploading topic page, click on the "add link" icon (do not click "source" like most people do for editing), put the image URL on the top slot, and click the check box "to an external link", and your image will be posted in link form. Thanks for bringing this up, I'll need to add this on the topic to avoid confusion. Arbiter0416 17:35, July 31, 2011 (UTC)
Archie Sonic the Hedgehog 20 Edit
Greetings. Again I know you want to help with adding summaries in the old issues but you must follow the Manual of Style. That means in past tense (the issue already happened) and do not start the summaries with "The story starts with..." I will give you a week to change the article before action is taken. If you want an example on how to write a summary look at #220. Thank you and I hope I wasn't too harsh. Merricks 13:54, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
Alright, at the very least get rid of "The story begins with..." because I just fixed #2 to get rid of the "In the beginning..." Again sorry for being a little harsh. And now that I look at some summaries, you were right about present tense. I think present tense is for comic summaries while everything else is past tense. You can change it back to present tense and I am sorry. Merricks 14:17, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
No Zone Edit
hi, i was just wanted to ask why was Robolactus and Silver Snively in the No Zone category. I originally felt that the categories of nthe Zones were that certain character originated from. putting both "Mobius Galaxy" and "No Zone" might make it look a bit confusing. I did not want to be condescending at all, i just would like to know why Sclera1 05:15, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
o ok then,because they (Silver and Robolactus live there now) Sclera1 12:47, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
