  • Hey Jon, you should probably just copy that message to TMBLover onto his Message Wall. He won't be able to respond on that talk page anymore -- but now that we've got M.Wall, he has no more excuses. :)

  • Um, was it REALLY necessary to put the apostrophe BACK into the link? :-/ Seems like a very trivial undo. I fixed "The Muppets" link, then I just changed the apostrophe on the other link just to keep things tidy.

    • We discussed this several months ago on Current Events. There, I said "...I feel if a user has already gone to the trouble of putting [the apostrophe] in the link, there's really no point in taking it out." Of course there isn't an exact policy for it, but I just do that because it looks tidier on the page. It's all different stokes, so I don't think it should matter anyway.

    • Alright, that's understandable. I guess it all depends on the specific situation. It just seemed weird because when I made the edit to the page, it wasn't my ONLY reason for editing, I also fixed another link and the apostrophe thing was just an aside thing since the edit window was already opened, so its not like I was trying to be obsessive or anything. It was just in addition.

      By the way, I have heard the claim that 300px is the standard when posting video thumbnails, but is there anything wrong with posting thumbnail videos in 330px?

    • We use 300 px as the standard for our pictures and thus the same for videos, so they'll line up together. Also that width ines up with our templates (performer, designer, eka, etc.) so anything wider won't be inline and tends to throw off the images (unless it's, say, in a stand alone gallery or some such, where usually it needs to be smaller). Plus the uploaded video can always be enlarged anyway when breaking out of the page (which is usually what needs to be done). We're not really designing the pages so people have to watch the embedded videos on the page itself, it's just been a shift from originally using YouTube links (more visible, the still image gives you a clearer idea of what it is, etc.)

  • Hey Jonathan, check out [[Current Events]] for an explanation about the categories Kmanwing was adding.

  • Thanks for quoting me. I didn't even realize he was already banned that time when I wrote that, but then I figured it might come in handy in the future.

  • Hey, Jon! I saw that you deleted a Bert voice comparison video, and said that it was "unused". Didn't we have some other ones? I seem to remember watching them, or maybe I saw them on YouTube. I was just wondering why you deleted it instead of putting it on a page. Was it because those kinds of things are considered fan-made?

      Loading editor
    • That was the only one to my knowledge that was uploaded on the Wiki. The user who uploaded it several months ago never did anything with it, and I just thought there wasn't any use for it here. It's one of a series of fan-made video comparisons on Muppet performer recasts made by a user called MuppetVoicesAndMore. I do think they're well done, but I just didn't think it fit with our guidelines.

    • Okay, thanks! And thanks for helping with Iliana Guibert. Can you delete a couple of redirects that she had created? Thanks!

    • Done and done already ;)

  • Hi, Jon! Can you restore the Puppet Heap page just to put the image somewhere until we build a page? See Talk:Walter. Thanks!

      Loading editor
    • Sure. I'll lengthen the page some and add an external link for now. Thanks for letting me know ;)

  • Due to one of those timing issues, I inadvertently took out Nate's pics as well as the overlong spoilery synopsis. Thanks for catching it!

      Loading editor
    • That's okay, though I am having a little trouble in adding some of them back in. I'm adding the right codes but they aren't appearing. I don't know what's wrong here. (Am I just not seeing them? Am I just nuts?)

      P.S. I hope you didn't mind me adding some of your info to the Puppet Heap page. I was kinda bummed that you weren't given a chance to create it yourself; a new user jumped the gun and created the page, which was initially deleted by Henrik because it only had a small pic of their logo. Ken asked me to restore the page, so I lengthened it with help from Brad, who really fleshed it out.

        Loading editor
    • I was finally able to add all of them back in, by rewording a couple of the file codes. But still, it shouldn't have been that complicated; it's probably a bug or something.

  • Hello. I was curious as to your reasoning behind removing the "Influence" section I added to the article about Roosevelt Franklin.

    • Hi! We track outside spoofs and references elsewhere, not on the character pages, with very rare exceptions, none of which I can even think of right now. In this case, it's covered on Arrested Development (and as you can see, we have our own page for Will Arnett as well).

        Loading editor
    • That and we actually don't use Wikipedia as a source. In fact, we try to veer away from getting our info from other websites that rely on user contributions (including IMDb, fansites, and even other Wikis) that don't require the user to cite sources and prove their own accuracy; which is the opposite of what we encourage here.
