Default Green Lantern wiki page

So, my brother works for wikipedia. He just informed me that a GL wiki page has been approved and should be up and running ready for work.

We shpould all pitch in and get this badboy running. It could have the potential to be the best, most accurate, up-to-date archive for all things Green Lantern.

Awesome news. If anyone is wondering what wikia is. They are wiki sites dedicated to one subject, movie, cartoon, place, book, etc. That can be edited and added to with pictures and information. which is all closely moderated more so than a general wikipedia page is. Some popular wikia sites include; Wookipeidia, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Star Trek.

So here's the link:
http://greenlantern.wikia.com/

I'm excited, I wanted one to get made for a while now. Since my bro has worked for them, I've been nudging for it even more.

Yo.

not meaning to downplay this, but wat about the info from the main site??

I dont see Y we would have to create a wikia if the main page is already pretty comprehensive.......

Because you can go more in detail with characters, villains, places, powers, weapons, etc. With much more info and pictures. It's solely for GL and nothing else. It's designed to be an ultimate information archive. It should be updated and grown to a point where it surpasses the regular wiki page.

It's also the first resource everyone checks for info. Therefore, it should be as accurate as possible.

Plus, we could link everything back to here

A GL wiki sounds interesting. I've made alot of edits on Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki (mostly anonymous), and I've contributed to Wikipedia a few times as well (I'm the one who originally wrote the Corpse section of the Green Lantern Corps article on Wikipedia). So maybe I'll drop by the new GL wiki and contribute a little.

I'm not sure if anyone knows this, but if you want to kick-start the articles for the new wiki, you can copy and paste articles from Wikipedia to the new wiki. When the Star Wars wiki was first started, most of their articles were copied from wikipedia, then expanded from that. You can do the same thing for the GL wiki.

There already is a DCU wiki here.
Is there a reason to create a seperate GL wiki when this one already exists?

Yes. It's for strictly Green Lantern only. Why wouldn't we want an informational archive on just Green Lantern?

My point is that to have a complete GL archive, it would have expand to include many other aspects of the DCU which are closely tied the GL mythos, such as the Justice League, the New Gods, all the Crisis events, Superboy-Prime, etc...

I think it's a fine idea. Lots of other characters have their own wikis, why not GL?

I think this is really good, you know how many times I've gone looking for info about soething and havent been able to find it or its been limited? Its way better to have an entire site devoted solely to GL, Even some character wiki pages dont have enough info on them. This would defiantly be way better and a great way to spread the word of all things GL and GL related.

Agreed, and I don't understand what the negatives are. It's just another place to get more info on the awesomeness that is the GL universe. HOW is that a bad thing.?

Is this project mostly forgotten? The page has not changed much at all in the last couple of months. I thought someone at least by now would have copied the entire Secret Files issue into that place.

It all depends on us. Anyone can go there and add to it. I just don't have the time personally. The "project" can't neccessarily "die". It's there for us to do with what we plese. Then if there are any incorrect submissions, they are reviewed, checked, and corrected by "administrators" of sorts. My bro being one of these becasue he works for wikia, that's what he does.

Thing is, for years now we have all used Dr. Mouse's Book of Oa. Which is a very thorough source of pre vol.4 info. I'm not sure if anyone else has the time or backissues handy to make anything that can rival that place.

I'm working on it in my spare time, i've increased the amount of pages by about 10%. I'm going to be working on it especially over the next several days. I think with the wealth of knowledge available in this membership it should be easy for us to fill a lot of it in.

I'm working on an Arkillo page right now and then may be moving on to an Amon Sur page.

If people are still working on this there is one of the best explanations given for the emotional spectrum I have seen on the DC boards. From a guy names quaring

Re: Red Lanterns, Black Lanterns, Alpha lanterns, orange lanterns?
Posted: Aug 9, 2008 1:17 PM in response to: batgray Reply


There exists within the DC Universe an emotional spectrum. A psychic energy field that is created by the motivational emotions of every living mind in the universe. I say "motivational emotions" because they're simply mental states that motivate people into taking action, but they're called emotions in order to keep it simple. Each "color" in the spectrum represents a specific emotion. Red = hatred, orange = averice/greed, yellow = fear, green = willpower, blue = hope, indigo = compassion and violet = love.

When the Guardians of the Universe were creating an intergalactic police force, in order to bring order to the cosmos, many billions of years ago, they chose to tap into the green portion of the emotional spectrum. They built a Central Power Battery to tap into and store the will power of the universe. And it is from this battery that the Green Lantern rings get their power from.

Green, as willpower, is in the center of the spectrum. It is entirely influenced by the mind, while the other colors are able to influence the mind right back. The further away from the center of the spectrum a color is the more influence it has over someone. By choosing green the Guardians gave their Green Lantern Corps a power source that won't taint them with emotion and they can use entirely for the pursuit of universal order.

Recently the rogue Green Lantern, and long time GL villain, Sinestro, created his own Lantern Corps. Their rings are powered by the yellow part of the spectrum. Each member of this corps was chosen because they had the ability to instil great fear in others, and fear is what their rings are powered by. Also, because yellow is just slightly further down the spectrum from green the yellow rings influenced the members of this corps, probably making them more agressive. The Sinestro corps and Green Lantern Corps recently fought a war, during which the Sinestro Corps lost, but was not entirely defeated. There are still members of the Sinestro Corps roaming around, but they're no longer organized together.

Recently other lantern corps have begun to tap into the other parts of the emotional spectrum. Each corps is being created for a different reason. Some are just seeking power, while others want revenge. Some want to do good and fight against a prophesy that foretells a great war between the various lantern corps.

And that's what the Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps series' are leading up to. A war of the lanterns.

I should also point out that because each ring is tapping into different emotions their power will be different. Anger will be a savage power that boils inside of and spews out of the Red Lanterns. Avarice will impell the Orange Lanterns to week out more power and to hoard all they manage to take. I don't know enough about the others to describe what they're like, but each corps will be given it's own particular theme and "personality".

As for the Alpha Lanterns, that you mentioned in the title, they're a part of the Green Lantern Corps. They are Green Lanterns that have been modified to police the Green Lantern Corps. Think of them as internal affairs of a police organization. They have the power to drain the rings of a Green Lantern and arrest them if they have broken the laws of the Green Lantern Corps.

And the Black Lanterns will show up some time in 2009, as part of the big Blackest Night event. They represent the black part of the emotional spectrum, which is no emotion, no life. They represent death. The Black Lantern rings will be granted to the dead, causing them to rise again and to try to spread the death across the cosmos and bring the Blackest Night to the universe, where no life will exist.

I hope that helps.

Any questions?

I think near 1/2 of the pages are mine now, yes that is a challenge. I am mostly focused on the sectors and planets, waiting for someone to fill us in on all of the GLs.
