SCCal24.png The Scandinavian Chapter needs your help. Less meetings and no fairs equals not nearly enough income for us.

So if you are a Phan of the Phantom and like the service we provide to you and fellow Phans, through this PhantomWiki we therefore, ask you to donate to the cost of running it.
Due to the massive amount of pictures in here, the web storage costs us 5 500 SEK per year.

But, we don't like to just ask for your money, we would like to offer a printable custom Fantomen wall calender, with all that you would expect from an calender, including the dates your Fantomen magazine will land in your postbox or the nearest store.

Kindly download it from here, from there you can also donate to this wiki

Frew's Phantom Active Era's

With Frew having released their Phantom Generations poster, I'm wondering if we should add these years to each Phantom's "Active Years" list on their respective pages? Joey pajamas (talk) 02:48, 22 July 2023 (CEST)

Apparently the years are taken from Team Fantomen's years. I don't know if this means that Frew always follows TF's version or that Weigel just used the most comprehensive overview of years that was available. Andreas (talk) 12:13, 22 July 2023 (CEST)

Related stories vs Templates

I see in this page and others in the Temple of the Gods series the reference to the other parts. Should they not be in the "Preceded by" and "Followed by" boxes? I see that the Temple of the Gods story, with its six parts, should be set up like the Phantom legends/The Heart of Darkness story, instead of having "Related stories" on each of the six individual pages. Is there any good reason why not to do this?

Yes, the reason is what that option isn't used for Egmont stories. See Related stories. Delboj (talk) 16:17, 1 December 2023 (CET)
Sorry, is your "Related stories" meant to be a link?
I still don't understand why that option is not used for Egmont stories? Mars (talk) 13:38, 02 December 2023 (AEST)
I am not sure why that option isn't used for Egmont stories. "Related stories" isn't link, you can find it line before reprints. Delboj (talk) 12:26, 2 December 2023 (CET)
I'm not entirely sure, but I think it's because Phantom legends/The Heart of Darkness is written as one, long continuous, story while the Temple of the Gods series are full stories that is "just" part of a bigger arc. --MiGi (talk) 07:33, 3 December 2023 (CET)
Even if it is "just" part of a bigger arc, it may be helpful to have a single reference page for each of those "bigger arcs". I would like to see a page with each Frew issue number and stories (a much bigger project, I know) and I think the multi-part stories would also be better off. After all, if the other "parts" are related, why not have them in "Preceded by" and "Followed by" and have a page with all of them? If they are not so closely related, why list them at all?

Detail in Appearances in Articles

This started with a question over whether or not "Africa" in The Whistleblower should be linked or should be excluded altogether. Other questions have been raised over what amount of detail is too much detail to include in Appearances in Articles. Mars having made lots of detailed contributions recently (November/December 2023), are they too detailed?

Should there be a limit or guide on what goes into Appearances or should it be included if it appears in the story?

I say this is an encyclopedia of the Phantom, if it is identified in a story, it should be included in the Article.

I would like to see what Andreas thinks about this. Delboj (talk) 14:45, 3 December 2023 (CET)
