  • Thanks again for your various contributions to the Wiki, but you seem to be using the past tense a little too much. Summaries of stories should be in the present tense, for one. And as for in-universe pages, they should only be in the past tense if the subject is known for sure to no longer exist in the form described. Hence, Neighborhood T8 should be in the present tense, because as far as we know it still exists in the present-day — whereas Caer Dallben is in the past tense because it's most likely long-destroyed by the 21st century.

  • Could you ask the calculations group to relook at these two calcs? They are currently used on your wiki for laser cannon justification for Star Wars.

    I have critiques on the calcs:

    1. For the first one, these asteroids were from a planet's rings and thus would be made of ice, but the calc assumes they are made of rock. Also, the speeds assumed are kinda weird.

    2. The second calc uses the high end speed of a comet, 70 km/s, but they range from 10-70 km/s and average out at 40 km/s, but the calc doesn't take that in mind.

    3. For both calcs, they also assumed the meteors hit the ships dead on, which didn't happen. They merely grazed or bumped into the side of the ship, and thus the ship didn't take the brunt of the energy. They need to be recalced based on the total surface area hit, though I am not sure how to do it totally.

    May you ask the calc group to look at the calcs and fix them given these issues? It would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

    • Thanks, so looking at the feat I should note that with pulverization that mere chain reaction from the explosion and the natural heat energy ensuing would be enough to create the ash. Vaporization is "cleaner" and would result in no ash but just vapor, and a much larger collateral explosion. As such, I am more convinced it is pulverization. Rock doesn't turn into ash, it is ash which would be unbound by the intense pressure from pulverization and then charred by the temperature.

    • Could you link the calc and note that on the thread that the feat could not be vaporization because turning to ash =/= vaporization and that rock cannot even turn into ash as it is literally a conpressed clump of ash and dirt. It was simply unbound from the energy, pulverized to dust, and charred by the energy. That is not vaporization

  • Hello, Darkanine! I see you've returned to the wiki! I just wanted to thank you for your edits so far (which have been very good, by the way), and to tell you that we hope you stick around - we could always use more contributors!

    • Thank you!

      By the way, what do we do with stories without proper names? It seems the early stories in Walt Disney's Comics and Stories didn't properly name the stories, so they're just called stuff like "Walt Disney presents Donald Duck" and the like.

      Would it be "Donald Duck story (*original issue here*)" or something else?

    • Well, a lot of those stories were later reprinted and given proper titles, so first you should check I.N.D.U.C.K.S. and see if that's the case. If it was never reprinted or never given a proper name in English, find out if it was given a title in another language. If it was, translate that name to English and use it for the title. If the story was never given an official name in any language, it may have a common fan-made name - use that if you know of it. And, if none of these things have happened, the best thing to do is to come up with a name for it, making sure to note on the page that it is not an official title, and use that until a more official name can be found.

    • Thanks!

      One last question, what's the naming convention for unnamed characters?

        Loading editor
    • Actually, we have much the same policy for those as we do unnamed stories: if the character was named in a foreign language version of the story, use the name they were given there (such as we did with Helmsman Benny, who was named in the French version but not the English), if they have a common fan-made name use that (such as we did with Semiramis, who was never named officially but given the name Semiramis on The Feathery Society  by the comic author Gaucelm - but be sure that you mention the name is only a fan-made name), and if they have neither of those, just name the page something that describes the character (such as we did with the unnamed Angry Cheese Alien).

  • Welcome to the wiki.

    • Thanks! I'm a long time lurker, glad to finally edit here.

      I have a few questions though. I've been curious if this wiki accepts articles based on cartoons based off Mickey and Donald, like House of Mouse and the Mickey Shorts. Secondly, are non-"Duck/Mouse Universe" comics still published/licensed by Disney allowed articles, like the Aladdin Comics, or the upcoming Gravity Falls graphic novels?

      Thanks in advanced.

    • Any Duck/Mouse universe cartoons are accepted and encouraged. However, any other Disney-published things are not unless they have been established to exist within the Duck/Mouse universe. (for example: Tinker Bell has often been shown in Duck/Mouse stories, so any Peter Pan comics are allowed)

    • What Drleezan said. Note that Aladdin does indeed have a history of being associated with the Duck/Mouse crew (albeit nowhere near as extensive as Peter Pan), so they're acceptable as well, be it in film, comic or video game form. If you want to see how the franchise of a particular Disney movie stands on the continuity issue, look at the page Walt Disney Classics. (And no, Gravity Falls isn't part of it.)

      That being said, I'd like us to prioritize things that are more well-established as Duckverse-related before we move on to the less well-accepted ties like Aladdin. A good milestone would be not to start on Aladdin pages until at least all of the DuckTales 2017 episodes and characters have been wikied.
