Iron Man thing

Now that I think about it Howard Jr., Maria, and Yinsen should be supporting characters since their the father, mother, and major life influence respectively of the main character as well as Gregory and Howard Sr. (the mainstream version at least) have a neutralish vibe about them. Also does Howard Sr. really resemble Titanium Man?

Need help

User:Jimscrooge continues to create articles on future films in violation of Wikipedia:Crystal even after being warned. Just today he deleted the entire section on the Spider-Man reboot from the film series article and created an article about it. Among his creations are:

Can something be done about this user?-5- (talk) 08:10, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Like an indef block?
Blatant hoax created July 21: User:Jimscrooge/A Prehistoric Carol (2013) (the supposed day that the script began)
Blanked page warnings here (take a look at talk page history to see this is a pattern...I came here because I saw he blanked your warnings..he's had a lot of warnings)
User:Jimscrooge creates Untitled Third Batman Film (2012) on Oct 5
User:SIXontecbmehr creates The Dark Knight Rises (2012 film) with the same exact text 28 October (hmmm?)
With his blatant hoax, continued warnings and lack of communication, I'm not sure why he is still here.

Hi, J. Thanks for the head's up — I didn't realize what the protocol was. Damn! Five years here and I'm still learning things!  :-)  --Tenebrae (talk) 01:51, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

I don't think you're being antsy at all. Things like people's private, current phone numbers shouldn't be here.
The family-members thing is tricky. For public figures where the information has been published, the genie's been let out of the bottle. But for people who are notable enough to be in Wikipedia but aren't public figures in the usual sense ... yeah, we need to be careful, especially with children's names. --Tenebrae (talk) 02:01, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
I've been going through channels trying to get admin help on the increasingly abusive, name-calling Peace is contagious. He has now crossed the 3RR bright line, and perhaps you might have a chance to see the report at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Edit warring#User:Peace is contagious reported by User:Tenebrae. Suffering malicious personal attacks today hasn't been pleasant. The slow response to my calls for help have been dispiriting. Thank you for anything you can look at or any admin you might alert.

Midtown Comics article photos and Conflict of Interest

Hi. The folks are Midtown Comics indicated to me that they'd like to upload some of their own photos of their various signings and appearances, as per my suggestion, so that I could add more pics of the more notable celebs to that article, in particular those known outside the comics industry, like Tim Gunn, Fallout Boy, Mike Bloomberg, etc., since I wasn't there to cover those events. I remember what you and others said about Conflict of Interest during the Ivan Brandon article discussion, and just wanted to confirm: Is this okay? Or is it a COI? Nightscream (talk) 01:09, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

IIRC, the COI issue there was that the subject of the article or an employ of his studio was trying to excercise controll over the article.
The potential issues with images from Midtown would be if they want to retaine all or some of the rights. Remember that the premise for BLPs is to have a free image.
- J Greb (talk) 01:36, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
I'm sure Midtown would want its logo in the image, or the image captioned "so and so in November 2010 at Midtown Comics in New York City." Unless Jim Lee or Joe Quesada or whoever is signing there is totally arrogant, which I don't believe they are, they'd probably consent to a photo taken outside on the sidewalk. And if they don't consent, well, their loss; someone will put up an image they wouldn't even have that much control over. (I'd have to assume they'd dress in a way they felt was nice for a signing.) That said, I want to take this opportunity to thank Nightscream for all the time and effort he's made in contributing valuable photos of comics creators before the oldest generation is gone. (And what with such tragic early deaths as those of Mike Wieringo and Dave Stevens, to name two, it's never too soon to photograph them for encyclopedic posterity.)--Tenebrae (talk) 13:59, 19 November 2010 (UTC)
Captions are fine, just like noting photos taken at a con. Even incidental logs at that point may not be an issue. A logo stamp though would be a no-go. - J Greb (talk) 23:00, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, Tenebrae. Regarding consent, I almost always ask subjects at signings and conventions if I can take their picture, as you can see from the way they smile for the camera in the portraits that I put in their individual articles, a number of which are in the Midtown article, so that's not an issue. (On the rare occasion that they decline, I always respect their wishes, and in some cases, I've even helped them replace the photo when they were displeased with some aspect of its quality.)

Also not an issue is Midtown, because I always ask them too, and they've not only consented, but have always enthusiastically requested my help with their article. I've made it clear to them that I'd be happy to help (as I have with any other BLP subject displeased with their article in some way), but only in ways that do not violate policy, such as WP:NOT, WP:OWN, WP:COI, etc. This is why I wanted to disclose this, to make sure everything was on the up and up.

Speaking of Wieringo, who owns the copyright on convention sketches? A sketch of Rogue he made for me free at a 90s convention is the only piece of convention art I have, and since it's by him, can it be put into his article? Would it have to be authenticated in some way before I could? I've also thought about contacting the estates of people like him, Kirby, Michael Turner, etc., to ask if they could supply a free pic. Would that be preferable? Nightscream (talk) 01:32, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Hmm. Well, magazines like Alter Ego and Back Issue publish sketches. And, though I wouldn't do it, people do sell sketches. So it seems to me that if a sketch is given to you then it becomes your property. And that's certainly so if you pay for the sketch. The authentication question is a good one; hard to know the answer to that, other than to suggest that if you lent your sketch to an aforementioned such magazine and they vetted it as authentic, then the sketch has that additional provenance.
I have noticed how cheery your subjects are in your photos. I've worked extensively with photographers, and the ability to put subjects at ease is every bit as important as technical skill. --Tenebrae (talk) 01:56, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Your reversion of link to stream of Batman (TV series) and your reason given

I fail to see difference between giving a link to a radio station that is playing a particular genre of content and the link I added. RtvTelevision has at least three video channels, sometimes four for which the content varies on Shoutcast which is an add on for the winamp player. They have done this in the past with "Zorro". I have yet to see a link to streaming content with a notation of copyright status. This temporary streaming content appears to be the only chance for the world at large to see Batman (TV series) as no one is putting it on dvd.1archie99 (talk) 20:03, 19 November 2010 (UTC)I have added a section on the talk page inviting of the article inviting discussion.

Appearance lists

I noticed you were removing these from articles - I agree, it is probably not useful to have these. I have seen them in a *lot* of character articles; should I shoot to kill on sight? 108.69.80.49 (talk) 18:45, 13 November 2010 (UTC)

The general consensus within the Comics Project is they shouldn't be there. There may be a few exceptions, but I can't think of any. There are also a pair of templates used under the "external links" section that will point to apperance list generated by the Grand Comics Database and Comic Book db which are preferable.
As far as what is in the current articles - anything with the header "Bibliography" should be puntable. 1) It's very much the wrong term and implications and 2) the same disruptive editor was adding them.

Superman

Hi, J. You're right -- "vol. 2" is not part of the title and should not be italicized. The odd part is that it had been italicized with "(vol. 2)" as part of the title before I made the move, so it was actually already incorrect when I got there.

That separate thing aside, what I was aiming for to keep our nomenclature consistent: Since we don't have "Superguy (vol. 2), #11" but "Superguy vol. 2, #11" in the WPC, I thought it was noncontroversial to change "(vol. 2)" in the title to "vol. 2". Again, it was already erroneously italicized when I got there.

In any case, do you think this should be a separate article and not simply part of the Superman article's publication history? As well, the uncited "Key issues" section seems to be POV. What's your take? --Tenebrae (talk) 18:10, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Hrm... might be a browswer issue. Does the title of Superman (comic book) come up as Superman (comic book) or Superman (comic book) for you? For me, in IE, the dab isn't italicized. Same is the case with "(vol. 2)".
As far as consitancy and non-contriversial go... Article titles with dabs tend to differ from "common name". With that in mind, I'm wary of trying to enforces article text guidelines on them. In this case "(1987 comic book)" might work.
However, you make a fair point: Superman (comic book) could be reworked to cover the run from 1939 to 1986, from 1986 to 2006, and from 2006 to the present as well as Adventures of Superman. That might be worth suggesting.
