Trying to create a new article!

We really need to fill out those help pages. I can't find where you could create a new article! I remember the "New Article!" bar in the last wiki on the front page...

Apparently the Moo Hoo Man page is incorrect. The guy in the comic is "Oscar". Moo Hoo Man is actually a guy dressed old Greek-style. You could read more about this here.

What I always do is to type the article name in the search box and click go. The search page will give you a link to click to create the article. I think that's the standard way to do it: certainly no big-name wiki I know of has a new article box.
I agree on those Help pages, and I've got an idea. Mediawiki.org is creating a set of public-domain generic help pages for use in any wiki. Tomorrow I'm going to follow the steps here (requiring admin access) to import some two dozen of them. It'll probably need a bit of editing, but it's better than starting from scratch.

I've imported the pages and done a bit of cleanup.

Sorry if I already asked this, but I've had a memory lapse.

Do any of you want to make a good comicography page for Steve Purcell? I can try my best to find or supply cover images if needed.

I don't think you have asked yet, as such. Known things he worked on are all in this post, right? I could probably make a nice table out of that and add it as a section at the Steve Purcell page.
It looks like all the milehighcomics.com image links are broken now, but I'd only want a handful of images at most anyway. If you can find just one or two of them back I'll add a mini-gallery with that, one of the RuneQuest covers, the Nocturnals back and Paper Museum. That should cover a nice range.

Here, take a look. I do hope you can help with those question marks and one or two more covers

Wow, thank you! I wrote in a few things for you. I got rid of Heroes Illustrated 14 because it was just sort of a stats thing on Sam and Max villians and a synopsis of the comic. Not really that important. I'm not sure if you want the issue run numbers for some of the limited series like Defenders of Dynatron City or Amazing High Adventure where Purcell's work was mostly uniform issue to issue.

I have some scanned covers of the Mike Mignola work and Dynatron City... I can go dig those up when I get home.
