    Cutting and pasting

    August 4, 2016 by FossilLord

    It seems this blog is rapidly turning into a complaints thread for me so I will try and make this quick. When you are posting information about a certain character please do not cut and paste your text directly from statements by the author or from the story itself. I know it takes more time to reinterpret what's written into wiki text but give it sometime and you will find it to be much better quality. People come to wiki's for an summation and analysis of what they see in the story. If they want to see the direct author comments they can follow the links that the wiki provides. Keep editing folks.--FossilLord (talk) 04:44, August 4, 2016 (UTC)

    To work on the articles my rule of thumb is to use the name that that character knows the other character by. there fore with scion every page that mentions him uses scion, anyone who fought it during golden morning knows it as Zion, and its partner knows it as the warrior.

    Take Rachel Lindt for example, in undersiders (when they are in the field) and some other villans she is known as 'Bitch'. But as a rule of thumb the general public and the Heroes will only mention her as Hellhound when they a have the misfortune to encounter her. And to all the undersiders when off duty and her dogs she can called Rachel. This is even if the difference between her cape and civilian identities are largely negligible.

    Another example that can be applied to…

    Ever see this ?

    I will quote it so you do have to open the link

    It really bugs me that the Worm wiki sucks so much. Worm has an active, mostly text-based fandom, so you'd think that the wiki would be at least somewhat decent, but you go and look at it and articles for major characters have wholes sections that are either just [Coming Soon] or missing entirely. Most minor characters only have a description of what their powers are and maybe one or two lines about their appearance.

    While I would love to talk to this person and try to convince them to help out on this wiki, it gives a perspective on what the wiki was like at the beginning of this year. This is impermissible. In my experience, the quality of the wiki reflects on the quality of t…
