  • Hi! Thanks again for all the good work you're doing on the Wiki, but: As I said in my editing rationale, Disney Presents is just a label for hardcover editions of some Great Parodies, not something original. We can't start having pages that track every collected edition of this and that, that's what INDUCKS is for. So I don't think it warrants a page. 

    When it comes to the two pages you've created… are you sure those are the titles? Maybe that's what's on the cover, but, like, the page for Only a Poor Old Man isn't titled Uncle Scrooge in Only a Poor Old Man. Apologies for it not being written down yet (you may have noticed I'm doing a complete overhaul and rewrite of our Policies these days), but the title we care about is the one printed on the first page of the story, not what's used in advertising, or even on the cover of the book it's printed on. IDW books often give a different title in the table of contents than they do on the story's first page (i.e. The Time Vortex, called The Vortex of Time in the ToC), and we go with the first-page version. Same thing. 

    Also, Brady (or any other translator) is not to be credited in the Infobox in the “Writer” field. Never in a million years. The page is about the story in general, not any particular American printing thereof. Even if we cared particularly about the English printing (and we don't really, except inasmuch as we give more specific info on its reprints and use its terminlogy due to this Wiki being in English; you'll notice that where a localization and the original version of it conflict, we go with the original), there are several cases of stories being translated multiple times by separate people. 

    As always, localizers are to be credited in the part of the Behind the scenes section that details English-language printings of the story; for example, “The story was first printed in English in 2056 in the Canadian Disney Comics Magazine #32, where it was localized by John Smith”. 

    On a totally unrelated note, I just saw that Beasts vs Birds section on your user page. Sounds neat!

    • Furthermore, though, I don't think all these separate character pages are warranted; since they present themselves with author names, I've been going with the presumption that Dracula and so on are in-universe adaptations of the original stories, starring the Disney characters — much like The Walt Disney Theater and some other Great Parodies.

    • All righty then; less editing for me to do.

  • Ah, right, thanks for picking up on that mistake of mine. I slip up all too often on this issue, because in my native France, Clubhous is in fact entitled House of Mickey Mouse, whereas House of Mouse is called something completely different.

    • No problem; that's the great thing about having multiple people editing a wiki.

  • I appreciate that you're trying to help, but for the love of Merlin, stop creating all these stubs! Stubs are an emergency measure—a "I'm not finished here" template you leave if you have to stop creating a page partway through. You are not allowed to create stubs with no intention of going back to the page and propping it up to Wiki standards in the near future. 

    Ergo, I forbid you to create any more pages within the next seven days. Focus on improving the myriad you have already made, instead. Add pictures, infoboxes, descriptions worthy of the name. Go on! I know you can do it!

  • Thank you for your recent edits to this wiki. I just want to remind you that all pages on the Wiki should be written from an in-universe perspective, and should be written in this format: (https://scrooge-mcduck.wikia.com/wiki/Scrooge_McDuck_Wiki%3A_Example_Page). Good luck with your editing!

  • In the future, please don't remove links to things just because they seem unimportant, as you did on the Justice Ducks article (especially if those links were added by the head admin Scrooge MacDuck, as they were there), because everything canon to the Duckverse with a unique concept will eventually be given an article here. I recommend taking a look at our Notability Conventions article if you're confused about what should have an article or not.

    • My apologies; just didn't see much point to creating articles when we have less than a sentence about most of said characters to go on.

    • Well, that's how our policies work - anyone or anything canon and memorable gets an article. But I understand why you might think that these characters wouldn't.
