Mr. Smartie Notes:

New Users Guide

Quick guide for editing. See Help Page for more details.

There are five major areas (and a lot of little ones too) where Herocopia is always in need of help. Each area has specific templates to aid in the editing process.

#1) Authoring Character Pages
We use templates for Characters and other things relating to Astro City. Assistance on how to use them can be found by clicking here.


#2) Building Event Note Cards for Events and Annotations
We are currently in a big push to build Event Annotation Note Cards. These too are template driven, and they are engineered to generate automatic timelines and appearance lists for just about everything related to Astro City.

More information on how you can help with this part of the Herocopia Project can be found by clicking here.

#3) Authoring Non-Character Pages
These are pages that relate to City infrastructure, places, neighborhoods, organizations and things beyond Astro City proper. They are built using Device templates.


#4) Authoring Publication Details
This section of the Herocopia Project focuses on providing information about all the various comics books, trade collections, and other miscellaneous material published about the World of Astro City. Yep, you guessed. They too are best edited using templates.


#5) General Editing and Fact Checking
In addition, a lot of the longer running characters need updates, or attention, and some could use a touch of editing here and there to make them more readable. Also, we are in constant Fact-Checking mode. This is best done by referencing the source material directly and validating that the information here on the Herocopia site is as accurate as possible. Alas, that means reading Astro City Comics. Rough work for sure, but hey(!), someone has to do it.
