Reversing the infobox pic order

I feel like the infobox pics are backwards from what they should be. I feel like the most recent versions of characters we've seen make more sense as being the first image in the lineup, and that this the tabs thing is better for looking back at characters' past appearances, rather than forward. -- OliverMichaelWest 18:35, January 26, 2021

I also think the wiki badges could use a DCAU touch-up, like on most wikis. -- OliverMichaelWest 15:49, January 28, 2021 (UTC)
And the Batman Beyond tabs should probably stay in the back. It'd be weird for characters like Bane and Barbara. -- OliverMichaelWest 19:33, January 28, 2021 (UTC)
So, the infobox pictures should be ordered according to the character's most recent version, except for those that "would be weird". And who decides what's weird? Most of the rogues revamps look weird, but for most that is their most recent version. And "most recent" according to what? The shows' broadcast? That's bald Riddler. The character's chronological life? That's old Bruce Wayne. Those would be weird main pics, no? There is no "most recent" for shows that went off the air years ago. Many people are discovering them now on streaming platforms, so what's "most recent" or "more recognizable" for you, may not be for others. The current tabs order removes personal bias from the equation and provides an impartial, consistent and linear array of the character's different iterations. ― Thailog 00:36, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
I just feel like the most recent looks in broadcast order are the most recognizable, and those should be the ones seen when the page is first opened. The only reason I think the BB pics shouldn't be the first, simply because newcomers who click on Batgirl won't expect Commissioner Gordon as their first sight, that's all. -- OliverMichaelWest 21:18, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
Actually, the more I think about it, the more I feel like the Batman Beyond pics should ALL be moved to the back, since they're in the far future. -- OliverMichaelWest (talk) 13:21, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Bug Feedback

Hi Thailog! FANDOM is conducting a 2-week bug fixing project from the feedback at Community Connect. This work will focus on bugs which haven't risen to critical fix levels while the engineering teams have been heads down on the unified experience work, like features not quite working the way they’re intended or the way they used to on the legacy platform. You can read more about it in this blog, but what I'm specifically reaching out about is seeing if you have any particular bugs that are really annoying but not site breaking and may have not been reported yet. We have an opportunity to get bugs like that triaged and incorporated into this project, so if that'’s the case, please send me everything you can about the bug(s), including steps to reproduce them and any other relevant information. This is your opportunity to get a quick fix to everyday annoyances while the teams are in full bug squashing mode, so let me know quickly! Nightsilver (walltalk) 16:04, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

Recent reverts?

Any reason for the recent reverts? Jimmy Olsen's revert I kinda understand as it wasn't the best quote, and maybe the same with STAR Labs. But Smallville and Kala In-Ze/Argo/Argoan? Also, in addition to the quotes, both Supergirl and Ra's al Ghul had references added/revised, a revert which doesn't make sense given the Wiki articles' need to have references for every section. Can you please clarify what mistake I made here? Minus the more obvious Olsen/STAR Labs. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 14:19, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

Most quotes were merely referential and not representative of the character or place. Not every one needs a top quote. And if you want to change existing quotes, propose it in the talk page. Otherwise everyone would be changing on a whim. ― Thailog 19:34, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
Indeed. Potential vandalism aside, I'll admit that the "existing episode A quote" change to "newish episode B quote" edits made may not have been my best judgment, so for future reference, I shall propose changing existing quotes on talk pages, if I feel it needed be. However, I disagree on the idea that not every one needs a top quote. I'm sure there are exceptions where there are not good enough quotes (i.e. Argoans and possibly STAR Labs), but that isn't the case for all of them, I would think. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 12:03, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
I'll clarify: only subjects that can have a proper, meaningful, representative quote need a top quote. When there's none, there's no point in adding a quote just for the sake of having it. Case in point, Smallville. ― Thailog 12:33, 16 March 2021 (UTC)
Yes, I can see it clearly now. Kind of confused on what such quotes can cover other than that Smallville is in Kansas or is Clark Kent's hometown though, but still, I guess there could be more to tell. Thank you for your patience with me on the subject. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 14:47, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

DCAU Voice Actors in Teen Titans Go!

Hi. whether it should made a New Page of DCAU Voice Actors in TTG!? - TN22(talk) 15:29, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

No. ― Thailog 13:33, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Batman TAS/The New Batman Adventures

is "Mad Love" Series Finale in TNBA and not "Judgement Day"(in Production order)?

- TN22(talk) 21:06, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

The series finale is the last episode aired in its original run. ― Thailog 21:16, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

All right, thanks for your answer. - TN22(talk) 00:13, 5 April 2021 (UTC)

Static Shock and Justice League Crossover

Is "Twilight" from Justice League takes place before "A League On Their Own" from Static Shock? I mean piece of alien metal from Brainiac's remain.

Darkseid potential profile images

Greetings Thailog, As you may have noticed, I uploaded 2 Darkseid files with profile image potential. However, they may not be the best quality, but I found shots of Darkseid in JL and JLU with him in a profile position. Whether they are useful, any help with the eventual images, or not, that's what I'm asking. Please let me know this works, if it works, that is. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 03:56, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Darkseid doesn't look all that different in JL from STAS. And in the last episodes of JLU, he's a merge of two beings. Regardless, that can be shown in the body of the article. The infobox is not meant to show every design change of every character. ― Thailog 10:49, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
That part I kind of understand, though that they don't look different can't be a good excuse, given the same can be said for other characters (such as Brainiac and Two-Face) who have two different profiles but they look very similar (if not the same) as their original appearance. But we're talking Darkseid here. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 17:51, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
It's not an excuse; it's a fact. Two-Face's TNBA look is his revamped design, and whether or not it's not too dissimilar to his BTAS is irrelevant. As for Brainiac, I only added his STAS image a couple of days ago, and now that you mention it, his JL image should be removed. None of this debunks what I mentioned above and whataboutism is hardly a good argument to make blanket changes. ― Thailog 19:45, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
My prior comment wasn't meant to be an implication of a need to delete existing images, but simply a question on usage. Still, if it's what you think it's best. Also, are we not allowed to have any images on userpages or is it a matter of relevance of usage on actual articles? -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 19:57, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
User pages are not articles and we are not a social network. We don't allow the upload of images solely to be used on user pages. ― Thailog 20:07, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Ok that makes sense, but not even if they have the potential to be used elsewhere? Just out of curiosity. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 20:12, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Naturally every DCAU related image has the potential to be used somewhere on the DCAU Wiki, so that's a moot point. ― Thailog 20:49, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Indeed, but I was referring to the images I had uploaded before. I'm sure some could be used someplace? -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 20:53, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Finding a place for random images so that they can be used on someone else's user page is not in my job description. ― Thailog 21:00, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Being an editor of this wiki, and an admin no less, it kind of is. I'm not trying to be smart, I'm just stating my own facts. How about now? -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 21:45, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
So, you want to put some images you like on your user page, and it's MY job as an editor and an admin on the site to find a place for them elsewhere so as to circumvent our long-lasting ban of uploading images solely to be used on user pages? You need to set your priorities straight before uploading more images. I'm reverting your latest edits and disallowing the use of those images on the principle of bad faith (yours, so that we're clear). Don't upload them again. ― Thailog 22:00, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Not necessarily. I needed guidance as far as image usage for this Wiki and, admittedly yes, for images that may or may not be included my userpage (if I wish) or if nothing else just for you to give me a yes or no on the matter. It was not intended to be in bad faith, and if it was, it was not my intention. I'm sorry that we're to presume I'm intending to vandalize this Wiki. And let's be clear, if we're talking about past actions, I asked you beforehand about the aforementioned image uploaded. It was your previous reply implied that you didn't care to clarify if the images had any place in articles (which apparently it didn't) or at least make it clearer for me that these images weren't welcomed on this Wiki. Again, it wasn't in bad faith, just trying to understand the sense of everything. My mistake and sincerest apologies for misunderstanding. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 22:28, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for answer. Oh and by the way, could you check the correct image under the title "The New Kid" from Static Shock?
https://dcau.fandom.com/wiki/The_New_Kid TN22 19:45, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
I don't know what you mean. ― Thailog 12:56, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

New Page Error

Hi Thailog. I was planning to make a New Page called "Felix". Felix was a student at Dakota Union High School and mentioned by Virgil Hawkins(also known as STATIC) in the episode "Child's Play" , but red sign said that won't allowe me to make it. Thanks.

I meant, I tried to put "Milestone Characters" in category, but red sign won't allow me to put it.

TN22 (talk) 15:39, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Try again. ― Thailog 19:10, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
