  • Sorry, about that. I accidentally removed the Hoots the Owl section from Sesame Street musicians and accidentally added back Hoots the Owl stage puppet instead of hoots the owl.

  • Hey man, I frequently see you adding a lot of noimage placeholders. Do you have the ability to upload pictures? Special:Upload

  • Hi, Anthony, Martin Short had two series called The Martin Short Show, the very short-lived sitcom and a more successful talk show, but in the case of Irving Cohen, The Show Formerly Known as the Martin Short Show was just that. An unrelated special in between and not the same as either. In this case, the title confusion is understandable as far as something called "The Martin Short Show," but if you see a differently worded title, don't assume they're the same or related without checking. It's context again, and if you need to, run the titles or the person whose page you are changing through IMDb to see if they're the same series. Thanks!

  • 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.
