  • I really need help with this https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:267033. Are Zikwe and Zobi the same character with a different name, or are they different characters that have the same personality?

  • Hello, Scott. I just wanted you to give me a chance to revert images to their previous versions, likely due to vandalism.

  • Hi!

    I'm Duckey and I'm representing the Vanguard team. We're users who volunteer to help communities adopt to new technologies and features. We've identified Muppet Wiki as a really high priority for introducing the Portable Infobox. Here are some articles if you want to learn more about the feature: Why should your content be portable? and Structuring for the Future.

    Basically, I'd like to convert your existing infoboxes to be portable. They would look identically (unless you would like me to redesign them) to the current templates on desktop, but a lot better on mobile. This change would require no changes to articles at all and the infoboxes should be more maintainable in the future. For example, here's how a Portable Infobox would look on the Episode 0001 page:

    We'd really like to get working on your community, but we would appreciate your go-ahead. Also, if you have any questions, or this is the wrong venue for this kind of a discussion, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    • We use tables on roughly 8,000 of our 35,000 pages. What's to happen to them if Fandom decides to change the way they render in the future?

      I might have worded that incorrectly, so sorry if I scared you, let me clarify. If any change happens to tables you can be sure that it won't break the the tables you are using, as long as you are using them correctly - to organize and display data. An example of a good use of the table would be the Picture/Segment/Description table on episode pages. An example of a bad use of tables would be using them as infoboxes, as currently. Any theoretical changes to wikitext tables would be thoroughly tested before being shipped. But those wouldn't be tested against infobox use, because that's not what tables are for. You can check Best practices with tables for further details.

      Currently, we have some special styling for mobile non-portable infoboxes, which takes up precious page size. We can't pretend that it will be kept forever. So clarifying and summing up: correctly used tables and Portable Infoboxes won't break, tables used as non-portable infoboxes might break.

    • Alright, I've made some more comparisons so please tell me what you think: Fozzie Bear, Kermit the Frog, Ain't Misbehavin'.

  • Hi Scott,

    I found a compilation of international Sesame Street theme songs, in it there was a version of the Plaza Sesamo theme song I had never heard before. Perhaps I am just a tad naive but never the less it might be a fun thing to look into

    The theme song is at 2:34:[http:// https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D15__GzfQSQ  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D15__GzfQSQ]

  • Category trending
    Dark shadows trending

    What it looks like on other wikis

    Hi, I'm looking at the CSS for the trending pages titles on the category page. The pic here is what it looks like for me -- not very readable. Wikia changed their category treatment in November, and I agree with you that their version leaves a lot to be desired :) -- the centering for one thing. But I'd like to tweak the font a bit more.

    I think you made a change to Wikia.css in this edit in response to their changes. I tried taking those lines out, to see if that's the right bit. So far it hasn't done anything, but css changes always take a while to settle. Do you have any thoughts?

  • Muppets 1980 page of london paintbox

    I just uploaded this picture of a Muppet paint box, and it's got an art reference that I can't place. I think you know more than I do about art references, do you know what this is? :)

  • I was sort of startled when I went to do the releases section for Goudvis and found that the page I had used to create it (which I've had up in a tab for a few days) was no longer listed as linking to it. Is there some reason you unlinked all the songs?

    • I don't think we've ever had a discussion about how to be consistent with foreign language capitalization rules (or I've forgotten about it). I usually check to see if there's a similar Wikipedia or IMDb entry and follow that style. But it's probably a topic for a bigger conversation with the community.
