  • Please don't take numbers off the Dot Bridges, just as you were asked not to on the other bridges. Even with a description, the actual Dot Bridge table organizes them by number (no anchored links yet, but that could easily be done to go straight to the section). That's useful info. The removal is not.

    As a general rule, if you've been asked not to change something on one kind of segment, odds are you shouldn't on another segment.

    • If you're doing them one after another, once or a shorthand version can suffice. If you do a bunch today and then one tomorrow, leave a note, even if it's just "eka cleanup" or something. You're not the only one who forgets, but it's important that other users know what you're doing and why (if it's after a forum discussion and consensus, Per Thread:Whatever is appropriate).

  • Hi Jon! I've been viewing your inquiries about the sponsors in various different episodes and just wanted to give you my intake about them.

    Now, I currently don't have access to any footage or scripts given out by the anonymous source, but I almost want to think Scott and Shane are listing sponsors by how they were announced at the end of episodes. For example, in Episode 0131, although there are segments shown about 'G', 'J', 'K', 'M', 'N', 'Q', and 'U', the only letter that gets mentioned at the end is 'J'. It's possible that it's the same case with various other episodes such as Episode 0709 with only one letter getting credited at the end.

    Again, I may not have access to anything from the anonymous source, but what I just pointed out is my best guess.

    I hope this helps.

    • OK, Frederic, thanks. Now I see where others may be coming from. However, I have apparently repeatedly raised the ire of several admins, and thus feel that my 'role' should be observer. No hard feelings, hopefully. Thanks again.

    • No problem. I did witness your previous encounter with Scott and I found his response rather extreme (although I do understand his annoyance) so I thought I'd step in and give you my opinion.

      Also, what happened to your list of memories?

    • Hi, Frederic:

      Thanks. I 'took down' my page. When everything 'returns to normal,' I might put it back up. For now, though, it would be best if I just observe. Thanks again.

    As always, I'm glad to help, though, as many know, that is mainly limited to fixing typos, adding pictures and/or text (with discretion, of course) to guides yet to be 'tabled,' and - my favorite - checking with admins about sponsors for episodes (only kidding on the last one, but it is true to an extent!)

    Hi Jon, a few things that would help us out a lot with building episode guides are the articles for letters of the alphabet, and Sesame Street Animal Films. When we build a guide, it's often most easy to find the sketch that needs to be inserted by looking at an existing sketch page, and these two areas could use some help.

    Basically, any animal film you can find in a guide that's not already on Sesame Street Animal Films would be helpful. As for the letters, these are the pages that could use galleries in the same format you can find on the A article:

    A good way to find episodes that they sponsor is to use the WhatLinksHere feature:

    • I'm not sure what part of the notice on my message wall is unclear.

      That said, D is a good start. If you look at what links to it you should be able to find the other ones. Thanks for the help!

    • OK, then I assume you mean that even if a clip is 'audio-only' format, you are still 'sharing it' or 'giving it away.' I thought you were referring to actual 'video footage,' but then again, I guess even an 'audio-only' version of a segment or episode is still, by rights, a segment or episode in the first place.

      I just did 'F,' 'G,' 'I,' and 'J' on the letter pages (i.e. converting them to galleries). But, like you mention, I can go to the respective 'link referral' page to see which particular segments in the entire history of the show are 'connected' to it.

      Once again, nice job on the video! Thanks for responding, and hopefully no hard feelings as to how I interpreted the terms of your 'anonymous source' notice.

  • Jon, I've removed several of your additions to episode pages because the new information you've added isn't sourced by anything cited on the page.

    For example, Episode 0498 says the information comes from the Tucson Daily Citizen, but your changes don't reflect that. I'm assuming what you added came from another page that cited Episode 0498 as its first appearance, but it's confusing for readers without doing a lot of cross-checking.

    Please don't do this. Those episodes will be gotten to.

    • OK, I understand what you mean about changing the wording of a segment.  Like I mentioned,  I just randomly chose that segment on that episode and used the more 'descriptive' version (found in another episode) and 'copy-and-pasted' it.  I guess what you're saying is if I do it for one, I should do it for all (or try to).

    • Yes please. The best way to do that is to check "what links here" using the image that corresponds to the segment.

      For example, say you reworded the description of the segment that corresponds to File:4115w.jpg. If you use the WhatLinksHere tool, you'll see every episode guide where that segment is used. In this case it would be Special:WhatLinksHere/File:4115w.jpg.

      If the segment you changed the wording for didn't have an image yet, you can Google the exact phrase in quotes with Muppet Wiki set as the source. It would look like this: [1]

  • Hi, Jon. It's okay to leave redlinks in the navigation box at the bottom of Sesame episode pages. Where once it didn't look like a lot of those were going to get filled until a very long time, we're looking at a situation where we will realistically have a page for every episode in the near future.

    • Honestly, I wouldn't bother with making tabled guides, Jon. We'll be getting to all of them eventually with better materials. I would just focus on the Firsts and EKAs like we talked about earlier. There's a lot of them missed.

    • Ok, Scott, I'll stick to 'EKA' and 'First' links for now. While the information on Seasons 11 and 12 from the University of Maryland does help a lot, there are a lot of segments in there whereas, even though they're in the correct order of appearance, they say very little about what the segment actually is (like the examples I gave - RELATIONAL CONCEPT:'beginning/end' and LETTER RECOGNITION:'b' - to name a couple).

  • Hi!

    We're currently having a discussion, see Thread:253692, regarding making episode pages with one sourced insert on them. If you want to chime in, feel free to write your opinion on the matter in the discussion. But until we reach a consensus, I'd recommend leaving these be the for time being.

    • OK, Shane, I'll read the discussion and make a contribution, if I feel it's necessary. However, I'll stop my 'practice' of doing this after I finish Episode 1476 (until, of course, some sort of agreement is reached). It's just that I see a lot of 'red-colored' links on recently added pages and want to 'fill in the blanks' as much as possible, even if it means creating a page with only one 'clip' included on it. But then again, I'll put this on hold until I get a 'green light' to resume it (if and when it happens). Thanks.
