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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I wonder if this is a bigger wiki conversation we should have about song dates.
I think we did talk about song dates before, maybe not what we're talking here, but I feel there was a time when we talked about how a lot of song copyright dates (especially for the first season) tend to be for when the season ends (such as the theme song being copyrighted 1970 instead of 1969), But now that more firsts have been confirmed, it seems like a lot of copyright dates do reflect the start of their respective seasons.
I've also been wondering if we could use at least a sandbox page for segments that were held over until a later season, if we have enough confirmed instances. Seems there's a lot of segments where the first broadcast appearance is a season later than what's been confirmed on DVD and other sources (some widely sourced; for example, I feel it's widely sourced that "Pinball Number Count" was made in season 7 but none of them aired until season 8).
