  • Hi, Alex, this has been brought up a few times on your wall, but stuff like "No means no" or "Don't bother" to other suggestions, even if they are ones that aren't as helpful or confusing, come off as aggressive, unhelpful, and clutter the thread even more than an unhelpful suggestion. And if a comment is addressed to a specific user or admin on a developing policy or content issue, let that user answer (after your "No means no," it was clear there was still confusion so Scott clarified and explained why).

    This is at least your third warning from multiple administrators on avoiding sarcasm or irritation in communicating with other users, so you need to take it seriously. Please respond here. Thank you!

  • In the future, try not to leave edit summaries like this, no matter how facetious or sarcastic you may have intended it to be. We are all capable of making mistakes and the great thing about the Wiki is that they can be easily corrected.

    • Oh, I’m sorry. In fact, I made a mistake myself while editing the guide (I forgot to list what Smart Cookies segment was in the episode). Luckily, someone fixed it for me.

  • Hi Alex. Remember to identify sources for edits like this, whether you add a source in the page text using ref tags, or mention it or add a link in your edit summary. For the record, I can't find any mention of the episode name online.

    • Found it. Nothing came up in searching "Julia's Haircut," but searching "Episode 4921" brought up a few public television listings.

  • Hi. I noticed a couple of your recent messages that don't strike a particularly friendly tone. Correcting another user's formatting or editing mistake is helpful, but saying "How many times do I have to tell you" in an edit summary is not in the proper spirit of collaboration. A reminder that a Wikia is a group project where we all work together. Most new users that come in aren't going to immediately know or learn our editing/formatting guidelines right away. It's good to correct, but not to scold. So please, less of that in the future. Thanks.

    • Another tip, Alex. If you're still getting frustrated with another editor (as per this), leave them a polite note on their user page (i.e. "Hi, just so you know, what this phrase means is that it includes all streaming services," etc). It usually works better than edit summaries (if the user hasn't gone back to that specific page, they're easy to miss; not everyone checks all of recent changes) and in this specific case, it's a newer user who has required more explanation or help on other things as well (which indicates they're not doing it on purpose and may need a little more patience).

      Beyond that (since they're not breaking rules or otherwise being disruptive in ways that would involve admins or the community), that's all you can do, but direct communication usually helps a lot.

    • That's what I'll do from now on.

  • Alex, since you seem to be the only one on here besides Shane and Jon watching the current season, and since StarsandStreetForever is no longer welcome here, do you think you could make articles for the new Elmo's World episodes? You don't have to get screenshots, I just wanna have descriptions of each portion of the episode. Plus when you make the article for the Bubbles episode, add a section for the Happy Dance to note that there were bubbles all around for that part.

  • Sorry, Alex. I was only told by Edward, a.k.a Fozzieboba, to update those pictures. The Masked March 20 I uploaded has high quality. After all, high quality pictures are acceptable. The original was little to bright and fuzzy.

  • Hi, Alex:

    I see that you reverted my edit. However, I also can 'make a case' for myself, since I have seen the notes which Gav (another Muppet Wiki user) posted online. While the sponsors are indeed listed as 'O', 'P', and '6,' the description of clips in the episode seem to indicate that '5' (and not '6') is the number illustrated in the episode. So, this is not totally based on my memory. Or are we supposed to treat the episode sponsors as 'final' (no matter what) until proven otherwise? Just wondering. Thanks.

    • Policy is to leave memory out of it (that's why we stress citing sources). If it's a mistake, we assess later, only if the CTW document shows every single segment and we're certain that it does (many for previous episodes have been lists of highlights). Otherwise, we go by print evidence. If you want to debate otherwise, feel free to bring it up on the forum (seeming contradictions are open to discussion), but don't try to use your memory or cite it in an edit summary. That's a red flag, and why other admins have told you not to rely on your memories.

      Also, in such a discussion, be sure to link to the scan you were looking at (just noting that someone else posted it isn't enough). Nothing about 5 has been added to that article yet, so it's definitely not self-evident, and then it depends on exactly what the document shows.

    • OK, Andrew, sorry. I'll use the forum in the future instead if I see an inconsistency somewhere, especially if I don't have enough 'written evidence' to 'back up' my contention.

  • ... and thanks for your edit to the Savion song page.

    Please take a moment to read over our FAQ and feel free to let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
