  • Hey, thanks for catching my gaffe here. I copied content to stay uniform between the three references and didn't notice the hitchhiking text.

  • Thanks for the correction re "Game of Chairs" (they all blur to me), but also see my post here. That list is a mess, so if you want to help alphabetize it and move anything to subesections where they belong, please do (right now adding more entries in random order is discouraged).

  • Hi, just remember again, look at context when looking things. Scott undid many of your "Ninja" additions. If a word is mentioned in a title in a connections list, it really doesn't need to be linked. And though Scott redirected Jewish to Judaism, that doesn't mean every use of the word "Jewish" (which in many contexts is referring just to ethnic group, not whether they're actively practicing) needs to be linked to it. Just please keep this in mind whenever you try to link new pages, and if you're not sure, ask someone. Thanks.

    • I promise to ask next time.

    • You're generally fine when linking to exact titles or people's names, now that you've learned to make sure it's not something else with a same or similar title. You just need to be more careful when dealing with words within places, titles, or lists of credits, since that's where it gets contextual and a link is often not relevant or useful. You still do a lot of good work linking stuff for us, though, and it's appreciated! Just be a little more careful (or ask) when it's linking just because it came up in a Google result, especially when it's not the same word anyway ("Jewish" and "Judaism" are related but not synonymous, since there's culturally Jewish stuff, plenty of secular Jews, etc. but if it mentions specific terms like rabbi, synagogue/temple, cantor, seder, Hanukkah etc. then it's related to Judaism, and most of the Israeli co-production stuff is because they usually contrast with Arab/Muslim characters).

  • Hi, I took out the Substitute stuff again. First, little reminder, new titles should always be alphabetical.

    Secondly, a basketball with a face called "Mr. Hooper" isn't much of a reference if it is one. If there's no context or nothing in the face to suggest Sesame Street, it seems like a pun (i.e. basketball hoops). Worth noting as a coincidence but that's all. If there's more to it that really makes the case, we need images or dialogue transcription, but right now, it all works just as kind of trivia since it's all about the one actor appearing as himself (sort of), and not the actual show.

    Also remember to alphabetize connections names (I still need to go back and fix the ones you added to that Amy Sedaris show). Thanks!

    • I'm sorry for putting the Substitute in the wrong section. I thought I did a good job putting the connections of Substitute in alphabetical order of their last names. It's a long shot but, I could ask Rico on Twitter if the ball named Mr. Hooper was a Sesame reference.

  • Hey Anthony, just so you know, tense works in context. Most of the changes you've been making about Caroll Spinney's actions still work either way. For example, saying "In a 1983 Cinemafantastique article, Jim Henson says..." is correct because you're relating what it says in the dated work.

    • So if I find something that uses the word "is" and it's not related to a quote from an interview, that's when I should change it?

    • It depends on the context. The ones you changed that I looked at seem to work either way, but I just wanted to point it out so you weren't breaking your back over it or anything Emoji-cluck

      Gotcha.

  • Hey, Anthony! Just wanted to drop by here and say thanks for linking Cody on all those pages. That turned out to be quite the oversight on my part — for all the redlinks I saw, I didn't realize there were so many more pages to link him on.

  • Hey man, there are a bunch of videos you uploaded that aren't being used according to Special:UnusedVideos.

    Did you want to put them somewhere? They're going to get deleted soon if they're not being used on the wiki.

  • Hi, just a heads up, please don't add people to the lyricists category when it's multiple names under a song with no attribution, or "Music and Lyrics" screen credit. Only when we know that specifically wrote lyrics (otherwise composers is fine for songwriters, and if we find out their contribution was lyrics only, or both, it can be added). Thanks.

      Loading editor
    • Okay. From now on, I'll clarify by saying the name of a song they wrote lyrics for in the edit summery. For instance, Chris Jackson wrote the lyrics for Rakhi Road.

    • The bigger thing is, don't just add based on infoboxes and the like. I'm cleaning that up now. If three to six names are credited, or even two, and we're not sure who did which, going with Composers is fine. Adding them all to composers and lyricists isn't.

    • Okay. I gotcha.

  • Hey man, what's up with all the date changes on character debuts? The last three I checked are wrong.

    • Where are you finding song copyright dates? As far as I remebe the last time I looked up anything on ASCAP, it didn't come with a date.

        Loading editor
    • Most copyright dates we have are sourced from album liner notes, songbooks and lyric sheets, and in some cases, the Copyright Catalog.
