Semi-protected edit request on 15 February 2014[edit]

Firstly, I want to state that I am making an edit request for the Spider-man page, as you probably know. Secondly, the reasons I want to make an edit request are because I found more than a few spelling mistakes and some unclear information. Also, I think that we should be allowed to edit this page because if someone sees something wrong, then isn't it their right to be able to fix it? It is immoral, insensitive and unjust to take away something like that which could rightfully be in their grasp. After all, we all have free will do we not? Thank you for reading this and I hope that my message gets an immediate response. 109.145.92.137 (talk) 22:22, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

This page is protected from editing by newer editors under Wikipedia's protection policy. While the vast majority of articles are open to editing by anyone, a few articles (like this one) have repeatedly and persistently been the target of vandalism in the past and have been protected as a result. Note that you will be able to edit this article without restriction four days after account registration if you make at least 10 constructive edits to other articles. You can request the article be unprotected at this page. To do this, you need to provide a valid rationale that refutes the original reason for protection. Failing those options, you can make a specific request and another editor can edit this article for you. (For example, you see spelling mistakes - what mistakes and where in the article?) --ElHef (Meep?) 23:24, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
Considering 109.145.92.137's edit history it looks like he's just upset he can't vandalize this article. Nice try. Spidey104 14:24, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

"Selected story arcs"[edit]

Who chose these storylines? They're terrible and besides One More Day NONE of them are even vital story lines. Where are the death of the Stacys? Jean DeWolf? Kraven's Last Hunt? Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut? Superior Spider-Man? The Clone Saga? Why the heck is "The Gathering of Five" and "The Final Chapter" in some sort of official Wikipedia list? That's another thing, since when did Wikipedia start suggesting things to read?76.98.53.123 (talk) 17:40, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

You're absolutely right on all counts. I've been WP:BOLD and removed what looked to me like particular people's POV of their favorite stories. Good catch. --Tenebrae (talk) 02:46, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, Tenebrae, for doing that. I'm posting my support for the removal of that information in case anyone decides to come along and revert that edit or add the same type of section back with their selection of favorite storylines. Spidey104 19:41, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 24 May 2014[edit]

Kind of need to add a few more team affiliations, because Spider-Man is also a former member of Secret Defenders,[1] Heroes for Hire,[2] and the New Avengers.[3] 71.209.113.17 (talk) 00:18, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

Done: New Avengers was already in the list, so it was not added with the two other teams. Spidey104 00:03, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Rhino already has an article of his own. What do you want changed on the Spider-Man article? Spidey104 00:11, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Again. When you people are tied up in form over desire to contribute you shoot yourselves in the foot. You have someone who is making a suggestion here and you are freaked out over input formatting. Rather you should be concerned about a suggested improvement to content. You people live in an echo chamber where you go through the motions of obeying the RULES OF WIKIPEDIA and forget the REASON why they were laid down. As I wrote before and it was deleted, people like me will laugh at the monthly begging for funds. It is the behavior of editors like this that get in the way of you raising more money. So you should do some more soul searching before you follow irrational scripts and instead you should embrace suggestions. For the time spent acting anal (that is not a derogatory term) you could instead have just hit google and spent time improving the article. Obviously this person making the suggestion is not going to come around again and read your response. I won't either. I find it amusing that people are reverting edits to a talk page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.57.50.79 (talk) 03:58, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
It would be appropriate to add "Spider-Man' to a list of alter egos for Doctor Octopus, but it wouldn't be appropriate to put his name here. Mattie Franklin isn't listed here for the same reason.
Arjayay is too strict with the rules, because that edit request is fairly obvious.
24.57.50.79, it is derogatory to say someone is "anal". You could have said "overly obsessed with details" or something similar. Spidey104 00:17, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
