  • Hey Wendy! Can you take a look at w:c:community:Thread:1735825 when you get a chance?

    I can see that our search results are using File:MuppetGroup.png which you uploaded, but I don't know how community.fandom knows to look at that file as our thumbnail (on Wonder Woman, for example, it's w:c:wonderwoman:File:Wikia-Visualization-Main.png)

    I'm also not sure where the blurb comes from. I don't see any matching text anywhere in Special:Allmessages.

    Thanks!

    • What staff told you is correct. I set it through the mobile main page a few years ago. Originally the search results there were taken from Promote. Then that feature broke.

      When promote on the mobile main page was introduced, my memory is that the text/image should have been populated from the old Promote feature where possible. The results were a bit haphazard. I think think the image could have been anything from a badly stretched visualization image to Wiki.png to a fandom logo. I remember I was helping another wiki with theirs and decided to check ours. I can't remember exactly what was there, but it was broken. So I reset it; and for lack of any better options I probably just decided to resize the main page slider image to fit.

      I like the new one you chose.

      In terms of the text... does the current search result match what you found on the mobile page? It doesn't now, but I don't know if you changed it. I suspect it was originally from the Promote page.

    • Yeah, there's no history for mobile changes (in contrast with the spirit of a wiki), so there's no way to see what came before.

      I haven't changed it, but the mobile description currently reads "Muppet Wiki is a collaborative encyclopedia for everything related to Jim Henson, Sesame Street, and The Muppets."

      While the search results on community.fandom reads "With more than 25,000 pages and 75,000 pictures, Muppet Wiki is a collaborative, comprehensive encyclopedia for everything related to Jim Henson, Sesame Street, The Muppet Show, and the Muppets Studio. We have pages for the shows, the movies, the characters…"

    • Then likely I tried to change it at the same time as I uploaded the image (I can't imagine anyone else ever did). Assuming I changed it at the same time as the image, "heavy caching" would be a distinct understatement.

      Search was originally pulling from Promote directly; the mobile main page section was an attempt to give admins a way to change it again.

    • Hm, I guess it's broken for now then.

      I'll wait and see what staff comes up with (although they seem baffled right now, too).

      Thanks for looking at it!

  • Hello Merrystar, I wanted to give you some updates from Fandom! First up, we recently introduced a new feature on Fandom! Ever wanted to know what browser your readers are using? Or perhaps where your readers are from? Now you can with our new analytics feature! What I find interesting from your wikis analytics is your most searched term which is "Sesame Street videography"! Your top viewed page is Sesame Street, so it's a good idea to keep that page updated! You can access analytics on the Special:Analytics page. If you'd like to do some more reading on this feature, we have a great Blog Post and Help page to help you get started with this feature! Feel free to also ask away and share your cool findings in our analytics channel on our Official Fandom/Gamepedia Discord Server! You can also let me know if you have any questions.

  • Hey Wendy!

    I just came across this on eBay, and while it looks like two similar Scepter singles we have here, it's got more songs and a different catalogue number. Is this something we don't have?

  • Hey, I noticed you posted a photo of the Sesame Street 1 - Original Cast Cassette Tape on the Sesame page. Can you give me more information about that? I listened to it as a kid and have been searching for the cassette tape version (not the record) for about 17 years. eBay has nothing.

    • Hello. I'm not sure which picture you mean -- can you provide a link? This one was posted by User:KarNYCLoAMR and it seems to be the only one on the The Sesame Street Book & Record page.

      That said, I did not own that album as a cassette, so if I posted a picture I found it online somewhere. Possibly discogs or another record database if it has never appeared on ebay. For example, there is an entry for the cassette here.

    • I see now. I'm sorry - I didn't check the international releases. Yes, that was added by me in 2010. But I don't remember where I found it.

      Ebay is honestly the most likely source for a cassette. I used to search international ebay as well as the regular one so perhaps it was on ebay.ca and that's why you did not see it? Alternately it may have been on one of the music databases instead (although I mostly used them to track down 45s and 8tracks), or possibly even a "vintage toys" collector site. But whatever it was it's not likely it is still available 9 years later.

      I'm sorry I can't help more with finding it. If you are not especially tied to that cover, you might have more luck keeping an eye out for the Australian (axis/summit) version; those seem to turn up slightly more frequently.

  • Ha, while I was explaining Muppet Wiki policies and approach to debated subjects, you fixed up Zwarte Piet. We'll see if it works, but it's handled the citation and relevance issues better. Thanks!

    • Thanks for posting the explanation about NPOV - I meant to do that but ran out of time; your response was much more detailed than mine would have been anyhow. :) And yes, let's hope it works!
