@freezyfrog: It would be easier to answer if I knew what kind of stuff you wanted to add but for stuff that can be added basically solicits (in italics), plot summaries (summaries not panel by panel descriptions or in-depth), unordered lists for story/chapter titles or contents (no page numbers though), cover info tables, publish dates if more then one (TPB & HC, print & digital), notes of interest as long as they are not redundant to whats listed in other sections like associations, 1st appearances for characters can be added but it is outdated since 1st appearances show on character pages, that's about it I guess. The order I listed all those things in is also the order in which they should be presented in the description from top to bottom, what gets included depends on the issue though and you only have to add what you feel comfortable adding.

As for examples anything new by larger publishers is good to look at: example, example, example, example.

Note: Also for issue names there is the name field where story titles go but generally if an issue has more then three story titles or it uses long story titles they should be moved from the field for names into the unordered list for story titles. Reason being is cause to many titles in that field looks bad when looking at issue grids and because a shortened version gets added to the URL link so it's best to keep the field shorter and use the unordered list.

Note: All the above stuff needs to be in the main description which is the second text box where you get the extra formatting tools, that top box is called the deck and it is meant to be a summary of the entire page (it has a text limit and can't be formatted) but decks are rarely needed for issues and volumes, they are more important on other page types so for issues/volumes they should be left empty.

@gilad_the_one: I was just trying to expedite things for you :P I'm OCD about anything wasting time, it is the one thing humans can't get more of so it should never be wasted minute here minute there it all adds up in the end :D

@gilad_the_one: he asked you to send him an email :P CV threads/PM inboxes get checked way less often by staff/engineers then emails plus info may need to be given that should not be posted in an open forum, this is why I've been directing everyone to email, it is for everyone's own privacy/good.

@impurestcheese: if the post is the initial post in a deleted thread it is much harder to get back but if it is just a post in a thread there is no time limit, whatever mod you contacted just needs a link to the thread and for you to tell them what post number it is..

@Feartheliving: ok then ya move everything over and then add some text to make the page unique. Should Omega-20 be an alias for Gene?

@Feartheliving: what is omega-20? what you are saying makes it sound like the Gene page is being used for two different characters but all the issue appearances and description are for a single character and it looks like Gene is the same character as Temujin, is the character that appears in Generation Lost not the same as the one that has appeared in Iron Man and Agents of Atlas?
