Seriously, it kicks all kinds of ass that you're doing these Titan summaries, because fuck only knows how else we'd get them on here. An entire extended storyline set in and around Savannah, GA? That's so insane that I love it. (Next time I'm in the same room as Furman, I'll have to ask him if there was any particular rationale behind picking Savannah - it IS a nice town.)

Revision as of 11:35, September 11, 2008

Hi, thanks for writing the Titan comics entries for movie characters. Could you please rewrite them ? We tend to write our fiction sections as they happened (in past tense) and only reference the issue itself as part of a story link or a note about some unusual occurance within the story that needed to be pointed out. Thanks! --FFN 08:30, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Just a reminder - when we recap fiction, we do it 'in fiction', that is, we try to avoid saying things like "as happened in issue 24/in the movie", we generally prefer to do things like say "Centuries ago, Ironhide [[Transformers Awesome Comics 6|punched Megatron in the face]] starting a dispute that could only be settled with interstellar war." Thanks! --FFN 07:14, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
Hi, you're still having trouble keeping the fiction sections in-fiction by saying things like 'After the movie'. What movie? No movie exists within the fiction, it was an event, so a better way to say it would be "After the defeat of the Decepticons in Mission City". Also, I would suggest refraining from posting news of upcoming TF UK comics from Furman's blog inside fiction sections, because the way you've done it breaks from fiction and simply becomes the posting of news. --FFN 19:58, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
What's the usual format for mentioning upcoming stuff on Wiki page then? Is doing it in Note form fine (I've seen that done a few times)? --Charles RB 01:31, 31 January 2008 (GMT)
It's been my observation that we just don't bother mentioning them at all, unless something unusual or contradictory is known from the scant information released, in which cause you would probably use the note form. Otherwise, we'll add the information in once the issue has been published. --FFN 04:06, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Just a reminder to you that we write our fiction sections in the past tense, as I noticed some of your recent edits have been in the present tense. --FFN 15:33, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Tense, dude, TENSE! We write the fiction sections in past tense! --FFN 03:14, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Scans?

Any chance of getting a scan of each of the Target characters from the comics? I'm really curious as to how they were rendered... plus their pages are a little light, images would spruce 'em up muchly. --M Sipher 19:02, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

Don't have a scanner atm, but I can try and do some over the holiday break. -- Charles RB, 05:37, 13/12/07 (GMT)

Scanned a group shot for Skyblast and Signal Flare's Movie entries - can't get a good enough one of Strongarm though. --Charles RB 16.51, December 20 2007 (GMT)

Copyright tags

Hi, can you use copyright tags when you upload images? We need to acknowledge images we upload legally belong to somebody. For example:

{{hastak}} for general Hasbro/TakaraTomy-owned images (character art, stock toy photos, publicity images)
{{fairuse}} for images that don't belong to Hasbro/TakaraTomy (such as fan photographs of toys)
{{comicinterior}} for comic panels
{{comiccover}} for erm, comic covers.

Thanks for doing our Movie Titan sections! It seems nobody else here has read them. --FFN 17:30, 20 December 2007 (UTC)


Just a side note - I would suggest more discriptive filenames in the future. 'Devastator-Roche' is rather vague, since there are a few characters named Devastator and Nick Roche could draw any one of them one day. It is always preferable to state the actual continuity in the filename itself. --FFN 17:37, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
Gotcha - I'll remember that next time. --Charles RB 19.44, 20 December 2007 (GMT)
Another note - the Devastator scan is *far* too large. I'll have to shrink it and reupload it under a new filename anyway. I also suggest that you lower the quality of your photoshop jpegs to around 7 or 8 to keep the filesizes managable if image resolution is not the main reason for the large filesize. We generally try to keep jpeg images up to (preferrably under) 100KB if it doesn't significantly impact upon image quality, though we will accept images over the recommended size file limit of the Wikia software if the image is large and complex and needs to been seen clearly and at high resolution. Sorry if I'm rambling, thanks. --FFN 00:18, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

TF Comic/Magazine cover sizes

Hi, is it possible for you to upload larger size images of these covers, because what you've essentially done is just upload thumbnail-size images of the covers, which isn't really very useful if anybody wants to look at the actual cover in detail. --FFN 12:37, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Ampersands and dashes

When editing, can you please not use ampersands and use the em dash (—; use {{subst:m-}}) instead of the hyphen? —Interrobang 00:27, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

You are a machine, sir.
