Hi Dai-Kon Hal -- we are excited to have DC Movies Wiki as part of the Wikia community!
Starting a new wiki can be a big job, but don't worry, the Wikia Community Team is here to help! We have put together a few guides to getting started. They say imitation is the best form of flattery so absolutely check out other wikis on Wikia for ideas on layout, ways to organize your content, etc. We are all one big family at Wikia and the most important thing is to have fun!
- Our guide to Getting Started gives you 5 things you can do right now to set your wiki up for success
- We also put together some Advice On Starting a Wiki which provides a more a in-depth look at some of the important things you should consider when building a wiki
- If you are new to wikis in general than we recommend checking our new user FAQ
If you need help (which trust me we ALL do) you can access our full in-depth help at Help Wikia, or email us through our contact form. Also, you can visit our live #wikia chat channel any time. A lot of the veteran "Wikians" hang out here so its a good place if come if you want to get some advice or simply make friends.
Now, go edit! We look forward to seeing this project thrive!
Best wishes, Adrian Wieczorek

Is this site only for DC movies that have been made or is it also for movies that were discussed but went not further (like the Batman Vs. Superman movie) and upcoming DC films?
Doomlurker 22:22, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
Yes, only for DC Movies that are actually produced.
Ok cheers for clearing that up for me.
Doomlurker 20:48, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
Should the Supergirl movie come under the Superman category or have its own category? Likewise should the Catwoman movie go under Batman?
Doomlurker 20:39, 24 September 2008 (UTC)
Yes, they'd go where in those categories.
Should DC animated films get pages on this wiki? such as Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.
And what about DC Imprints? such as Constantine, V for Vendetta, The Fountain and Stardust
Doomlurker 22:44, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes. That'd be fine.
Should the site get a make over for the new film that is out this month? (The Spirit) Just marvel movies makes over their site whenever there is a new film out so i thought it would be cool if we did something similar.
Doomlurker 00:57, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
Alright, but I really want the logo to stay the same.
I gave the main page a watchmen make over, what do you think? Doomlurker 23:53, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
I like it.
Ad free Edit
Hi! Would you like this wiki to be ad-free? I'm looking for wikis to be part of a new program which would remove all ads from the wiki for $19.95/month.
New DC Movie Universe Edit

If I get time I will. - Doomlurker 23:25, February 10, 2011 (UTC)
Do you think we should split the animated canon articles up into same continuities because at the moment some characters have 10+ variations of the character in their article. For instance we could have Kal-El (Superman: The Animated Series) for the TV movies and films that tie in to those. Kal-El (Superman: Doomsday), Kal-El (Justice League: The New Frontier) etc for the stand-alone films. Kal-El (Young Justice) and Kal-El (The Batman) for other TV series.
What do you think? I don't mind doing the work, just I think the articles would look a lot neater if it was separated out in this way.

Do you know how to delete articles/categories because there is a user that keeps creating unnecessary year categories. I would but I've not got the rights. - Doomlurker 19:45, August 28, 2011 (UTC)
Do you realise that the articles you create are linking to other wikis when the articles exist on this one? - Doomlurker 18:06, October 25, 2011 (UTC)
Surely its better to take your time on one article than rush a whole bunch of articles that need fixing? - Doomlurker 18:10, October 25, 2011 (UTC)
I will probably be modifying the badge images again as at the moment a lot of them just cut off the characters so it's just their face showing and I can make them fit better. - Doomlurker (talk) 12:02, August 13, 2012 (UTC)
So are you going to do any more blogs about Superman characters if so who are you going to cover next.
Bruce Wayne BlogEdit
The Birds of Prey Batman would have mentored Batgirl because in the show she was Batgirl before becoming Oracle. http://www.66batman.com/yabbfiles/Attachments/BOP_BATGIRL.jpg - Doomlurker (talk) 16:55, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
I think it would be better to have the histories on City pages (Metropolis, Gotham) rather than the state because the events aren't happening to the States as a whole and the Cities are the part that are relevant to the films. - Doomlurker (talk) 14:29, August 24, 2012 (UTC)
Wonder Woman BlogEdit
Hey you should check out the new and improved DC Cinematic Universe!
Logo from Warner Home Video Edit
You guys have been doign great things over here. So great that you've caught the eye of Warner Home Video, and they wanted to help out. They sent us a logo for you guys, which uses the correct version of the DC comics logo. I know it's not a major change, but it will mean we're in compliance with their logo usage rules, and what's cooler, they sent it over personally. Let me know if you want me to take care of updating the logo for you, I'll be happy to upload it.

I don't think Hair and Attributes are necessary categories for this wiki. Families aren't hugely relevant either as most of the characters from those categories are the same character from different universes but I've allowed it to remain mainly for House of El and Kents who do have a few different members of their family. - Doomlurker (talk) 16:28, April 22, 2013 (UTC)
Licensed Video SwapEdit
Hola, my name is Nic and I'm a member of the Wikia Community Development team. Recently our Special:LicensedVideoSwap tool has been updated with a list of new content for your wiki.

Edward Fyers is not a Prisoner on Lian Yu, he is a mercenary who went there of his own accord. He could have called in a plane and left at any time. Shado, Yao Fei, Oliver and Slade couldn't leave at any time, they were stopped from leaving, making them prisoners. - Doomlurker (talk) 22:23, February 16, 2014 (UTC)
