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).
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.
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!
And another thing: I think it's kinda annoying how the medialink template makes you go all the way to the beginning of the page, so after you X out of that, you have to scroll all the way back to where you were. I can just see that being frustrating for readers.
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.)
There's the Parker Lewis page mentioned, here, and a couple months back there was this.
This happens periodically, but since some of the same editors also remove other spaces in the article (like between info boxes and article text), it's not always clear to me how many of them are bugs and how many just someone's editing habits. This one and a few others by User:Tinyirnfist0 might be on purpose.
Oh, yeah. That happens for everybody unless they've checked "Disable Category module" in here. That's a secondary reason why __NOWYSIWYG__ is helpful at the bottom of edit pages: it helps with the spacing.
Just a reminder, please pause at least a few minutes after I've created a page. We're edit conflicting again, since you usually just want to fix a link and I like to correct or add anything else needed on a given page. (Otherwise I'll just have to start laying all the redlinks first to avoid it.) Thanks!
You did wait seven minutes from my last action this time, but please, wait longer. I managed to save it this time at least, but a lot can be lost for the sake of a period or a letter. I know you like to be helpful and most of the time you are, but please remember you don't have to make those edits the instant someone else starts a page, or while they're still on the Wiki. I'd honestly suggest twenty minutes to a half hour as a pause time unless it's clear they're done for the moment.
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.)
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!
