  • 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.

    • 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.

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

  • Hey man, nice job recently on a lot of the redirect clean-up you've been doing. Some of those that don't need fixing are song titles that go to Muppet Show medleys, for example. A lot of them are built with an anchored link meant to take you to a header or divid on the page. So, "fixing" those means the anchored links don't work the way they're supposed to. Also, in the future, if we decide to have a page for that song, we've already got the links in place. Thirdly, keeping the redirect links in place helps you see how many pages are linking to a song when you look at WhatLinksHere. So those are okay to leave.

  • Video tool instructions

    Hey Anthony! When adding a video, please take heed of the notice in RED that instructs on the use of file naming conventions. I just moved a couple recent videos you added to Muppet Babies Play Date that had emojis in the title. I don't know how the Fandom software will look at those filenames when maintenance becomes necessary on our video database. Thanks man!

  • Hey, good clean-up work lately, but a technical issue: Never place a possessive (apostrophe and s) inside italics if it's not actually part of the title (because that's what the italics imply, so basically you're unintentionally changing the show title, not fixing punctuation).

    That's really a wiki code issue (because three single quotation marks read funny in code). See my edit summary and actual edits on Sesamstrasse as a good example of how to fix that. If it can't be reworded, use the code <nowiki>'s</nowiki> after the title. Thanks!

  • Anthony, I know you love changing links as soon as a new page is added, but it doesn't hurt to wait a few minutes sometimes, for the person who added the page and may already be working on it. I just lost my entire reworking of Adam Barr because you changed it after I started.

    Please keep that in mind (most of the time it results in a conflict but the text is still saved; this time it wasn't.)

    • And it almost happened again. Fortunately you made a change before I added the images, but please, Anthony. Listen when I ask you to wait. *Now* I'm done with that page.

      Fixing disambigs, adding links, spaces, and the other stuff you do is useful but not when it gets in the way of larger page building. I know you usually make quick small edits. If you really feel you'll miss the change if you wait later, bookmark the page for yourself to get back to.

      And if I leave a message saying "Wait before working on this page I'm working on," after saying you'll try, don't make your next edit on that very page. (Checking the time stamps, one minute after you replied to my suggestion of a 20 to 30 minute wait if the editor is still active.)

    • I'm sorry. I promise I'll be more cautious from now on.

  • Hey man, nice job on all the eka template updates! Just so you know, if you find an eka or a first being used somewhere that it's not needed, feel free to remove it. Here is a prime example: Walter (vampire) has a page, so noting his eka or first appearance in a gallery isn't any more useful than listing an eka for Ernie in a similar setting. If you're unsure, feel free to ask. Thanks again!

  • Hi, just a reminder when linking titles, check the context to make sure they're actually the same. This has happened every now and then in your edits (i.e. confusing the Marvel Avengers and the British TV series The Avengers). If you're not sure, you can check the person's IMDb page, compare the cast lists on the pages, or in many cases it's actually in the article (i.e. if the article specifies this is a video game and what you're trying to link is a TV show and there's no known tie-in, then leave it alone).

    Thanks!

  • Hey man, just a reminder that we need to show our sources for additions like this and this.

    You can see why that would be necessary, yes?
