CBUB Character Profiles That Need To Be Deleted/Re-Added, etc., Post Here

Every time I go to open the character submission page every major release over the last seven years across any medium deserts my brain.

Will probably keep adding and using RWBY characters on a per-match basis tho. Surely if I jog my memory hard enough eventually at least one other modern interest HAS to shake loose????

Hum.  Perhaps it has just been a dry 7 years for new characters of note.

I can think of several Anime series I may add some characters from.

And I was just thinking about unpinning this old thread, heh. I even don't know when or if the staff at large will be able to delete or edit profiles ATM.

I’m not sure if my server has the ability to create a profile for the characters if it doesn’t I guess it’s up to you guy’s then.

 

Welcome to Electricferret, Hitman. 

IIRC, adding a profile isn't really about servers and whatnot. You'd just really need to have an image editor on your comp to edit a chosen image for a character profile to 200 x 200, then look for good links for said character from both Wikipedia and an official site on that character's main medium.

The site has been offline for seven years, so you would think there would be a lot of big characters people would want to add.

So, I'm surprised at the influx of strange, obscure characters like the Lake Champlain monster (?).  I didn't even know the lake had a monster.

I mean, whatever floats your boat. It's cool.  I'm just surprised at these obscure additions.

 

Nah, there are plenty of characters that can be submitted. I'd have added some on my end, but I first have to add an image editor to at least one of my comps. 

Could take awhile ...

A few things have changed since last time D,

The picture size has changed to 300x300 now, rather than 200x200, not a huge difference.

Before you submit, it helps to add your image to the Members Album Category  in the "Gallery" tab under "Browse", along with a brief summary from Wikipedia if you can get one.

That being said, on the other end, you simply need to provide  links to both Wikipedia and the Copyright holder respectively, a few less links to deal with on that end, but the key ones nonetheless.

So yeah that's that, but it is easier in a way, than it was probably before, mostly due to the links being reduced from 4 to 2, I guess.

Ah no worries, it's a non-issue right now A.T.M., but thanks for your reply Fox.

 

Hitman, if all is working on your control panel, you should be able to add the character yourself, but if you need help on that note, we can provide some pointers.

That said, I think you said something about not accepting duos anyway Fox, unless that's not still the case.

But the bad news is that I don’t have a computer to do it just a phone I have that’s why I’m replying to this. But I’m just giving you guys ideas for more characters that can be added to this. 
 

However I have the ways of making matches and stuff for other characters on my phone.

Ahh okay, I can probably look into doing this for you then.

Maybe try to use the desktop version of the page on your phone. I added a few characters using my phone and that's what I had to do.

I'd like to add more characters to the CBUB, but some characters have more info from fan wikis than the Wikipedia entry. Is there any way we can use those instead of Wikipedia for certain characters because of this, or do we need to use Wikipedia regardless?

I have the same question, because I'd like to add a few factions (Sons of the Harpy, Ranger Sentries, etc.) but they really don't have entries in Wikipedia aside from being mentioned.

We can only submit content from Wikipedia and an official site as links and profile text for now. Quote from Fox:

If we link to Wikipedia and then show text from some other wiki ... that is a problem.  It is called stealing content.

We have stolen content from some other Wiki and not properly linked to it.

 

So, that's a problem right?  No body wants their content nabbed without being attributed.  I'm open to allowing the use of Wiki's other than Wikipedia, but I have to make changes in the code to do that.  That's not my immediate priority. 

 

I would have to say, in the meantime, if there simply is no text on Wikipedia about the character then just let them go with no text.  It's probably some really obscure character.

 

 

To compensate, I'm thinking we can do how I used to do; when if a character doesn't have a direct Wikipedia page, look for the page of the medium the character originates from and link directly to the portion of the page that references your character. 

For example:  Amon from The Legend of Korra no longer has a direct Wikipedia page, so one could instead look on The Legend of Korra's Wikpedia page and link to the section of that page that best mentions him.

Let's go with DSkills idea.  Very good call.

Here's the thing... Wikipedia has a legal fair use policy.  That means that we can use their text in our pages as long as it's not for profit.

Also, WIkipedia is not going away.

I know people want to link to other Wiki's and take their text.  That's not something we can do unless that particular Wiki permits it as a policy... and I really don't want to have to start keeping a list of ones that do.

I don't really care about the text, honestly.  Let's not be overly concerned about it.  As long as there is some text, that's cool.

 

This Forum software can make Wiki pages but it seems unreasonable to make people write Wiki entries for characters they add, in their own words, without grabbing the text from some other site.  It's hard enough just to get people to find a good image of the character.

 

TLDR; Use Wikipedia.  Any text is fine.

Thanks for clarifying.

More specific question. I want to add a character or two from a book series (Nevernight Chronicles by Jay Kristoff) but the only Wikipedia page I'm finding is of the author and a different work of his.

If I add a character from this book series, can I just use the link for the author?
