    Default Alphanex Development

    Hi all,

    I'm beginning to do some tweaking to the Alphanex and integrating an appearances functionality that I've been wanting to have for this site since, well, since before the site itself.

    It's not going to be how I originally envisioned it to be, but it's going to be the best way round it for now, especially since Ben isn't involved with the place at the moment.

    It's going to be a very, very slow process so I apologize in advance.

    Because of the amount of entries that will be entered I've hidden Alphanex posts from the 'Recent Forum Posts' widget on the main content home page, so you can actually see forum posts and not just Alphanex code.

    I have left them in on the 'Recent Posts' widget on the Forum page. If this is how people access the forum and would prefer them removed from there, just let me know.

    Hopefully this should all work and be a decent resource for us.

    That's how I access the forum, and for now I'm content to have them left in.

    I've just filled in some of the blanks on #109. It's a bit of a nuisance you have to specify which Uncanny X-Men you mean. :/
    Also, I noticed the Classic X-Men version (is that going to have a separate entry? Especially considering it has Heather in it, which the original doesn't. edit: I've just noticed the answer to that question.) has three different letterers listed, but only two inkers. Odd. I'm guessing they had Terry Austin ink the extra pages.

    Hey! I just realised I don't have an original Uncanny #121! Gah!

    It's how I access as well. Like Mik, I don't mind.

    Question:
    Are people concerned with Editors?
    Has anyone ever gotten an Editor to sign a book they've edited?

    I'm considering not Category-Tagging them, so that the Creator lists are purely for Writer, Penciller, Inker, Colorist and Letterer, so while they're still listed on the page they're not searchable?

    Naaaaa....I really don't have any editors signed their work. Not saying their not important, but the artists and writers are the main thing people get signed.

    Editors are only noticed when they get something wrong. I think they prefer their anonymity.

    If I had an Alpha book with me, and met the editor, and knew they were the editor, I'd probably get them to sign it.

    Another Question:
    Are people concerned about cover creator credit links if an Alphan doesn't feature on it?

    TBH, I don't care much about covers either way. I'd suggest either do all the covers (where the artist is different to the interior art) or none.
    But that's just my suggestion.

    I'm interested in cover creator credits even if an Alpha Flight member isn't on the cover. Especially for the variants but also for regular covers.
    Are you an Alpha Flight Collector?

    Right... the first few have started to pop up.

    I haven't gone too much into detail with the chronology on the pages yet, and haven't added in the Summary but the basic skeleton of some pages are there to start with.

    For anyone doing any editing to pre-existing pages, after you've saved the page the URL will read:
    Code:
    http://alphaflight.net/showwiki/Alpha_Flight_1983_003?redirect=no
    You'll need to delete the "?redirect=no" part so it reads:
    Code:
    http://alphaflight.net/showwiki/Category:Alpha_Flight_1983
    else the page will effectively be invisible.
