    Default Alphanex Updates

    Hi folks,

    Just a quick question/request:-

    Are any of you interested in doing some updates to the Alphanex in the next few weeks; in particular Northstar and Kyle's entries?

    It'd be nice generally to get entries updated to the end of Volume 4, and I suspect that when the news of Jean-Paul & Kyle's nuptials hit mainstream newspapers and TV worldwide that a lot of people will be googling them and we could get some decent traffic out of it.

    Just an idea, no harm if people don't have time/don't want to.

    Sorry Phil; I don't have the issues necessary to do so, nor have I even read most of them. Somebody else?

    I've added a couple of lines to Northstar's - somebody should check them.

    If Kyle has an entry, I can't find it.

    I've semi-retired from the Alphanex for now, but I did basically do most of them so I deserve a pass

    Just a quick note:

    The Vindicator II entry, her side panel info has her baby listed as "unnamed".

    I'd fix it, but (a) don't know how, and (b) my internet connection is carp (yes, i said carp) lately, and I am having to wait five minutes for each page here to load...

    My connection has also been carp.
    ... but, since I do know how, I have updated the entry; it now says her daughter's name is Joey Jo-Jo Shabubu.

    Actually, I put 'Claire Hudson' - but I'm not certain; did they use that last name, all things considered?

    According to the courts, in issue 2 of volume 4, its Claire MacNeil Hudson. Thanks Michael.

    Welcome.

    Maybe this has been discussed, but do we need separate entries for Guardian I & II, and Vindicator I & II... since they're the same couple of people? Can't we just redirect? (Which, I admit, I don't know how to do.)

    I *think* the differentiation is there because the suits are different thus the powers are different., but I didn't create them so can't be sure.
    The Vindicator II entry refers to the Geothermal suit specifically in the powers section.
    The History section of the the Guardian II entry is pretty brief and links to the Vindicator II section for more details.

    I'm all for merging them, but I don't have the time to do it personally.

    If you want to create one standard entry for Mac and one for Heather, go for it.

    That makes a certain amount of sense.

    Hmm... We could do something like:
    'Powers:
    As Guardian II:
    bla bla bla

    As Vindicator II:
    Something something something Dark Side.'

    Besides, she used the name Vindicator in both costumes.

    This is another thing I might look into over the weekend. Or might not.
    I'm not gonna be that reliable about it, sorry.

    K-M, if you did most of them, I want your opinion - including, would you feel we were steamrolling you if we did something like that?

    Is Heather also going to get an "evil Vindicator" entry as well? For her part in Volume 4, I mean. Or will Vindicator (Heather) now get an entry under "villians"? I haven't looked, have we made an "Alpha Strike" entry yet?

    There won't be an Evil entry as it's still the same person/power-set, apart from the toes...

    An entry under villains is debateable... I'd say no personally as she was a combination of under the Master/Unity's influence and protecting her child.

    As to Alpha Strike an entry is definitely needed and she would be listed in their membership, within the Villains section.
