  • Hi, I can agree to "large", not, however, to having engaged in any so called "edit wars". The proposed term and concern simply got reverted. In regards to your interpretation of the dictionary entry for "voluminous", it does mention in what is labelled a "third place": "​(of a container, piece of furniture, etc.) very large". Apparently that was not good enough, but then again this is an aspect which seems to plague many an encyclopaedia. Aside from that, it would at least seem as if you agree with me on the condescending nature of the previous expression. Thank you for that.

  • Gimme an hour/two hours. I gotta re-watch it. I wrote down the time stamp but it got stained by potatoe skin grease. And let me tell you, I'm happy to do so, the two episodes Kevin's on are hilarious.

  • Hi Jbrangwynne53, I'm not sure why File:Noggin-Bug.png was reverted. Since the page covers the connection to Sesame Workshop, shouldn't one of the Sesame Workshop bugs be pictured, instead of one that doesn't show the connection and was mainly used after Sesame sold its stake in the channel?

    • It's not all that imperative that we have a logo image that illustrates Sesame Workshop's connection with Noggin when the text also does that.

    • Thanks, but I think Sesame's bug is more helpful to understand what the channel was- the bird logo isn't as relevant, being just one of hundreds of Nickelodeon bugs that were made after the channel re-launched in 2002. It's like if the Nickelodeon page featured a random 2020 Nick logo instead of the images of its '90s Muppet connections.

  • Hi, Jonathan:

    I see that you just redirected that page I created - 'Write It Down' - to the one which was already there.  Hope it wasn't too much trouble.

    I was planning on using that 'Rename' feature under 'Edit' (which I finally remember Andrew mentioning to me in a post a couple of years ago) but for some reason couldn't find the feature.  Perhaps it was 'done away with' as part of some 'revisions' or 'upgading' to some aspects of the Wiki and its features.  Just wondering.

    BTW, I take it that the migration hasn't happened yet, but will soon.  Is there anything I need to do to my account to 'get ready' for it (e.g. save certain settings), or not?  Again, thanks in advance.

    • I had a memory lapse and forgot that page move privileges were restricted to administrators some months ago due to recurring vandalism. So, like I said, if you notice an irregularity in a page title, let an admin know.

      And this doesn't have to do with the migration that's happening now which is related to Forum. We'll be switching to something similar to our old talk pages, so I'd only recommend reading the Etiquette on our new Forum page which will be necessary when we make the switch.

    • OK, Jonathan, thanks.  I guess that explains why (unlike some instructions I saw somewhere else), I didn't see 'Rename' under the 'Edit' drop-down menu (rather, just 'History' and 'Purge').  Like you mention, it's 'blocked out' for non-admins.

      For future reference, I'll contact an admin first if I feel that the name of a page needs to be changed.

      In terms of the migration, I guess I'll be all right in terms of my personal settings, if I understand and interpret you correctly.

      Thanks again.

  • Hi, Jonathan:

    As you may have noticed, I recently added info (in a section called 'Segments') to four 'Season' pages regarding the debut of long-running recurring segments which occurred during that particular season.  They are:

    Season 4 - Gymnast series

    Season 6 - Typewriter

    Season 8 - Pinball Number Count

    Season 10 - The Ringmaster

    For the Gymnast series and The Ringmaster, I also added pictures to the pages as well (and they're still up, I see).  However, for the Typewriter and Pinball Number Count, which already had pictures on those pages, my 'writeup' was removed.  I can understand about my comparison of the Typewriter to Frank Sinatra doing his 'Doo-Bee-Doo-Bee-Doo,' for it is indeed sort of a 'stretch.'  However, if you are familiar with Frank's music, that line was pretty 'well-known' in terms of being associated with him.

    Again, just wondering why the 'summary sketches' on the gymnast and ringmaster were 'left intact,' but the ones on the typewriter and pinball were 'taken down' (other than the Sinatra comparsion).  Again, just wondering  Thanks.

    P.S. Other series, like George the Farmer and the Mad Painter also had 'summary sketches' for their first seasons.  Should we also write a 'sketch' for the Sand Alphabet, which debuted in Season 5, on that season's page as well?  That series, like the Typewriter, also lasted about 26-27 seasons.  Thanks in advance.

    • Jon, a short sentence or phrase is one thing, ala the gymnasts. Your Ringmaster bit was just added and overlooked (I'd personally take it out myself, or limit it to just saying it debuted; it's otherwise a rehash). George the Farmer on Season 2 is just listed in passing, and the Mad Painter gets this ("The Mad Painter, a man who would paint numbers on various objects.") All kept simple.

      There's no real similarity between "noony-noony-noo" and "doo-bee-doo" and "the artist" is just how it's framed for director IDs on pages (but the documents we found actually suggest it could have been another studio; since the book sourced Jeff Hale, that's fine, but no reason to repeat info). Keep it simple, but you really don't need to feel a need to add one to every page for every recurring sketch. Quite honestly, you're overdoing it (both in the changes and in the queries). You can let some things go if admins change them, really.

    • Hi, Andrew:

      When you say 'add one to every page' and 'you're overdoing it,' to what are you referring?   When you probably noticed my recent 'big barrage' of edits, am I getting way too 'particular' about certain things?  I remember Scott mentioning about using 'WhatLinksHere' to go through all instances of a segment to make sure that all descriptions are identical.  However, did I take him too 'seriously ' or 'literally'?  Just wondering.

      Also, I recently posted a question about the gymnast, out of curiosity to an extent.  Since we know the first appearances for all eight segments in that series now, one - 'on/off' - does not yet have a desciption (and I personally don't; remember seeing it, though I know we don't rely on memory).  Is there any way to find out how she demosntrates that concept, assuming it's the same gymnast?  Just curious.  Thanks again.

    • I'm talking about those sketch summaries, because that's what you brought up in your post.

      But you also don't need to question or dispute every change made by an admin with an edit summary explaining. Or keep asking a question about other stuff when we're still trying to get you to understand our response to your first question.

      This gymnast thing is you wandering again in your questions, from one topic to another. I know they fascinate you and that's great, but what we don't know, we don't know. So asking questions won't really help if there's no visual, because scripts don't actually describe the live action films beyond one line labels.

      It's starting to wear us admins out, to keep replying to you. Curiosity is fine, but like with your speculation, a lot of it can be just kept to yourself. Stuff surfaces when it surfaces. A lot of stuff we never expected has been answered, and some might never be. You don't need to ask us about your pet topics all the time. We'd appreciate it.

    • OK, Andrew, I'll 'tone it down.' If you or another admin tells me first about something ('Jon, please don't do this.  Please respond letting me know you understand'), that's one thing.  But for me to keep telling you and the admins 'I want to do this because...' or 'I wonder what this segment or clip is like...' is another. 

      As for edit summaries, I'm trying to enter those once in a while, like you suggested, so you know what I'm focusing on during a particular 'run.'

      Again, I'll limit any questions to any 'need-to-know' issues about the basics of proper editing and formatting, especially when it's of some 'consequence.'   But for something which is strictly 'speculation' and 'curiosity' (like that gymnast question), I'll try to minimize or avoid that.

      I apologize for creating any distress or disharmony.

  • Hi there, so a while ago, I decided to edit the SS video, Computer Caper to write out the segements and street stories featured into the same guide used for typical SS direct to video specials that also use archive material. However, for some repition reason, such changes were undone and while I can understand the trimming of staff and cast list, I personally feel that maybe you could change your mind at any chance for this. 

    To start off, unlike more recent SS videos that accordingly uses a street story before segments, as what would be the case for a similar format to SS's current seasons, this video has the various featured street scenes used interchangibly with segments, similar to SS's old magazine format of putting a typical episode. The same can be said for other SS videos, such as Slimey's World Games and Sesame Sings Karaoke. So by just writing out the segements used outside of the street scenes without much specific order could lead to quite some confusing points, especially since the latter mentioned video contains both street stories interchangibly used with archive material and clips with new footage. 

    So, if any possible, for episode videos such as Computer Caper that uses a magazine format on the street stories interchangebly, could there be an exception made to write out a segment guide for such videos? 

    Thanks.

    • I don't see why the videos using the old magazine format is a good reason to present those pages as guides. Those videos mostly just reuse Street scenes with new segments. Readers can click the episode link to read the Street scenes (made all the easier with the "Show Only Street Scenes" filter), and a Segments section listing each one in chronological order is provided on the page. Videos that have a significant amount of new content (framing or otherwise) are worth guiding because that content wouldn't be covered anywhere else. Compiling guides for videos that mostly reuse content by wholesale reposting images and descriptions from the episode guides is just superfluous, and I don't think it's that important to clarify what segment appeared after Scene 2 in the video. Sesame Sings Karaoke at least has a DVD Chapters section which specifies the sequence of segments, including the new framing scenes with Elmo, so that's probably worth adding to the Computer Caper page.

    • I posted that image four years ago, so I wouldn't be able to give you specifics. I remember I got it from a dub, but I'm not sure if it was Plaza Sésamo or Sesamstraat. I also can't find the segment in our Sesame scripts, so there's a possibility that this didn't air in English.
