@ultimate_knight: things might improve, if they do I won't be as inclined to leave.

I was wondering if "things" and "locations" should add publishers to the info box?

Locations would make little sense, as real world locations could not be attributed to a certain publisher. Things is iffy. If the page is written well enough, it should be obvious what publisher has used either.

I suggest that we not allow them to change fonts ever again.

TBH.. I don't know if this was suggested. But a Reading Order section for Comic book characters would be nice.

@cypher7850: I would love this, as reading by published dates are not always correct. Maybe as another tab for the page (like with Reading Recommendations) with an updated list format.

That said, it would take a lot of work for wiki editors. I did two informal reading orders for pre-X-Force Cable and Siryn in my lists and they took quite a bit of tweaking to get right.

@renchamp I thought of this when I was sorting out my Doctor Who DVD collection.. Since the Doctor's chronology is complicated, I'd like the task of creating the Reading Order for him (should this feature be implanted).

@cypher7850: I would suggest doing something like this, but I also know that the Doctor Who stuff would likely have over 100 items in the list, at which point our limited list function would stop letting you order stuff. Maybe a series of lists under 100 issues. Otherwise, we can dream that the new wiki (teased but not guaranteed) includes something like this.

Next to Team, Friends, Enemies. Maybe have a tab for alternate versions.

So say I am on Batman's wiki page. I go to this tab and I can find the wiki page for Batman of Earth-22 or Batman of Earth-17. It would make finding alternate versions easier.

But some do. Should they be deleted?

@_gaff_: the ones that exist are for a reason and there are not nearly enough of them to warrant adding a feature like you suggested.

@_gaff_: Some meet certain criteria that we have defined, mainly it is based on how different they are followed by number of appearances and in other instances they are added by staff who can do whatever they want.

Looking for a specific post of mine earlier I knew the date I posted it on, but I had to wage like 10 pages to narrow down the time correctly.

When viewing post history, it might be useful to be able to restrict by date.

Possibly a video-game section for the wiki as there are many comic-related video games which could be added

@cloudguy: eh maybe, the version number was for the thread not the site, the site is probably almost double digits. I doubt anything was implemented in these ten pages so might as well leave it be.

For those who create their own pages, can they have the ability to lock them if they get out of hand?

It would be helpful if you had a way to search by a term based on most recently used.

In the volume wiki page, which does not contain any image, you could use the volume logo which is often graphically interesting.

For example:

I really appreciate the openness of Comic Vine to non-American comics, but in this perspective the language problem has not really been taken into account.

I think it would be interesting, at the level of the detail of the volumes, to create a specific field for the language of the volume, possibly a field for the original language and one for the translation language.

It would also be interesting to propose a field to indicate the geographical origin of the volume, either the country or the subcontinent.
