Please report any poorly constructed articles on this thread, along with a link to the page in question.

This includes locked profiles with serious grammar/spelling/sentence structure errors and typos, but you are supposed to fix such problems within unlocked pages on your own.

Keep in mind that response from the staff might not be immediate. However, response will come eventually, and your reporting will be highly appreciated.

Note:

Only report links to pages of sub-standard quality, not ones which you feel are unnecessary, or that are stubs. Handle these types of articles via the "Profile Deletion Requests" threads instead.

Well, I remember seeing an old YouTube video with Stan Lee in which he criticised the "comic book" spelling, as it sounds like a comedic actual book, instead of something distinctive.

If "comic book" is the correct spelling, I suppose that we will have to go with it, despite that it sounds stupid though.

It's the correct spelling because that's what comic books were originally, book collections of funny strips. Then they were allowed to include more genres in their stories and not just humorous ones. I personally just say 'comic' most of the time, so we could simplify it to that.

And honestly, with how much Lee has said over the years, I wouldn't be surprised if he might've meant that jokingly. 'Comicbook' as one word just sounds weird, and will immediately trigger mental alarms from people seeing two words fused into one.

Well, I have asked AKM sama to replace our Comicbooks category with Comic Books instead.
 

The “Range” is in the wrong place.

Thank you Elizhaa.

I handled the double redirect that were possible for the page to handle.

Given that the character only appeared in a brief crossover and is identical to the Injustice version of Superman except for the power level, I personally do not think that the page seems distinctive and notable enough to remain according to our Canon and Crossovers rules.

Would it be acceptable to you if I delete the page? It genuinely does not seem to qualify according to our standards.

If haven't checked all of them, but I remember that some of them have been of poor quality and/or contained lots of incoherently structured ramblings.

I had to revert quite a lot of such additions yesterday, for example.

On that case I'll try to fix it somehow.

which profiles need revisions?

Apex:

It looks better than previously, but I think that the 8-B statistic seems very illogical. He scales from resisting the flames of a physically guessed as High 8-C character, with unknown energy in his fire projection.

It is an improvement, but we still do not know if the monster that he scales from has as much energy in its fire breath as in its physical strikes, and also do not have any calculation for its physical power in the first place.

I already asked someone to calc the feat.

So we have to wait for it
 
Many of the Disney characters are from other properties, since Disney just adapted them, so they should all have (Disney) at the end of their page titles.

Apex:

Okay. Thanks.

@Carioca:

Agreed. However, somebody would have to be willing to update all of the pages that link to them after the renaming has taken place.

Are there any staff volunteers who are willing to handle this?
 

The profile is locked and there's an error in his weaknesses section:

"When using medallion, its user need to be suficiente powerful to wield it"

A spanish word. Should be changed to "powerful enough"

Also, a misspelling in the attack/techniques section, Soul Distribution, in the third paragraph:

"Yhwach ultimatly re fined the process of sharing his spirit with others"

Should be obviously changed to "ultimately refined"
 
Thanks Ant, my english is not perfect, so I didn't consider that it could also be "sufficiently poweful"

But the other text still says "ultimatly", is that actually well spelled in the context being used?

I am uncertain if Post-Crisis or Post-Flashpoint is correct. Can others investigate further please?

On the Calculations page, the "Destruction/Creation of Planets and Planetoids" section reads:
"For feats that involve the Destruction or the creation of planets or planetoids, we use a term called Gravitational Binding Energy, more information about the subject on the GBE [[[Gravitational Binding Energy|page]]."
The source code for the GBE part should probably be fixed.

Poor to no justification for just about everything on the profile. No calcs, links to feats, or even use of common reference feats to justify the AP or durability.

Seems like the user who posted it had worked a while to the profile. Maybe a message on his wall and ask him to correct it. If not let's say a few days of no change then delete it?

My apologies, but the page was far too unreliable to keep in the wiki, and take any risks with, so I deleted it.

You can always later find the source code or save it in one of your sandboxes for when somebody asks for it. It's just better to tell the user to work on the profile in their sandbox before posting it.

I have no problem with it being deleted but I wanted to give the user a chance to correct it before deleting as it seemed he/she worked a while on it. Yeah, I agree that it should be worked first in a blog/sandbox.

Nearly a week has passed since then and there has been no replies whatsoever.
I guess the source code of the pages could be pasted into a sandbox, then the profiles can be deleted, to avoid issues with the knowledgeable members if they decide to help at some point, as this doesn't seem to be the case currently.

I'll remind that the so-called supporters don't care about cleaning it up as it has been seen before, out of a lack of any input whatsoever on their part.

The pages seem to have a pretty good amount of scans, calcs and references. What clean up work is needed?

Okay, continuing from the Profile Deletion Requests Thread out of the verse suffering more of a case of poor formatting and random out of standard stuff on pages, "Aim to the Top!" holds some issues, and the verse is too large for me to check, so Audits are free to check the verse as well.
These are the issues. unless the audit group actually bothers checking the quality of this verse and fixing it accordingly (As from what I've found the quality of the pages simply varies too much to manually check on my part out of the sheer number), the pages may be best being removed from a glance.

Deleting the entire verse when so much time and effort has already gone into it and that has pages with a pretty good amount of scans, calcs and references just because some pages used some new and different way of formatting is overkill. Not to mention many pages follow the standard formatting. I don't even think the formatting is bad, just different than our standard format but still looks good in some cases and bad in some. Like I can see a few pages where the "Others" section can be cleaned out, "Explanations" section can be removed and "Notable Attacks/Techniques" section can be modified. But rest of the stuff in those pages, and many of the pages themselves seem okay.

I can ask a content mod or somebody who is interested to clean them up, or do it myself later when I get enough time.
