TL;DRDO NOT ASK FOR EPISODES

Related to the work we've been doing with expanding our Sesame Street episode guides (Thread:253692), you may be seeing some visuals uploaded by myself that won't have been seen anywhere before. I can't tell you where I got them, and I won't be posting (many) clips or sharing these materials outside of the wiki. I know there's content that fans have been craving to see for many years, but we're beholden to the trust of our anonymous and reliable sources. As co-founder, and an active member of maintaining the integrity of this wiki since 2005, I ask for your patience while we work through this content. Any requests on my wall for the acquisition of these materials will be ignored. Thanks for understanding.

  • After starting my first sandbox in ages, I checked what was there already, and not surprisingly a lot of it is confusing. I thought of starting a forum thread, but that works better once a general policy is formed or it's just one or two articles. All the same, for communication purposes, these and some of the other sandboxes you expressed concern about could be handled if (like starting a category or moving a page) users had to explain the sandbox on the forum (unless it's a really short-term "figuring out the code" sort of thing which can be moved within a day to a week tops; that way "What are you trying to do with this?" will always be answered).

    Just a few for now. First, is there any reason for a page to be both in user space *and* in the sandbox? That's the case with User:GrantHarding/Sandbox:The Primtives (which is misspelled anyway, although it doesn't matter much for sandboxes or user pages) and User:BradFraggle/Timeline (which might just be a mistake from a move or something). We could just take out the category tag and let them still work on the pages when and as they want to.

    Sandbox:Muppet Babies episodes was started as a result of a specific discussion in January 2018. The problem is the chart is almost completely inaccurate now, at least as far as images having been added in the interim. A lot of summaries are still needed (as applies to some Dinosaurs episodes, "Noisy Neighbors" has the reverse issue of excessive minute-by-minute detail). I don't know if it's worth trying to update (and bring up a project reminder on the forum) or just deleting.

    I just became aware of Sandbox:Help Wanted, which Brad started without mentioning anywhere but duplicates a lot of Sandbox:Still Stumping (which he did bring up in discussion, so both you and I were aware of and edited it) just with some Category:Attention items (many also outdated) and thread links on Muppet Babies episodes and Animal Show dates. I just cleaned up a lot of Stumping tags and fixed it on that sandbox page, and I'm trying to remove anything handled on the Help Wanted page. What's left on Sandbox:Still Stumping might still be useful (for a couple of the remainders, I'll probably revive the stumping thread to see if anyone knows the answer or thinks they're even worth bothering with a decade or more later), but anything useful from the Help Wanted sandbox seems like it could be moved there or else would be better brought up in a forum thread. Also, did you ever figure out the source of the Daily Show clip of the Count's castle, and if not is it worth keeping as a stumper or maybe just raising the question again somewhere else? (We have a lot more places to ask "Where is this from?" now than we did in 2008).

  • Hey, I know tracking sponsors isn't one of your strong interests, but a couple of users are doing the "it looks like there should have been another sponsor, shouldn't it?" sort of edits again.

    So if it's possible to check what's already in the box with the closing as you're expanding the full pages, it would be appreciated (it seems like two letters and one number didn't become standard until much later, though a few isolated examples seem to crop up sooner). Right now I'm just leaving our usual "If you don't have a source, don't edit based on guessing" warnings.

    • Ugh. I wish we never put sponsors in the template.

      Yeah, I'll keep an eye out.

  • Hi, Scott:

    I see that you have an 'advisory' on your page which tells other Wiki users to refrain from asking about where you got certain visuals which you are adding to the wiki, but I notice that you recently added pictures to Episode 0596, one of them being a gymnast demonstrating 'up' and 'down.' Because I'm convinced that she's the same gymnast for whom I created a page (now called 'Gymnast series'), can I go ahead and modify that page to account for the additional 'Up-Down' clip? Personally, I don't remember seeing that one from my childhood (probably because it was so rare, though a couple others might have told me about it), but can I still go ahead and modify the page about the series featuring her? I was thinking about asking you if you had the video, but, again, decided to kindly 'back off' after reading what you have on your page. Thanks, and hope you don't mind me asking about modifying the page I created.

    • If I find any more, I'll be sure to update the page. Thanks Jon.

    • OK, Scott, no problem. Again, as for now and/or the near future, if something does come up, it's much more likely to just be a screenshot image and not a video, right? Thanks again.

  • Hey, it's the same puppet for Pteranodon and Pterodactyl, and also used in non-speaking cameos (the closing Jim Henson Productions logo at least part of the time, and as a paperboy flying over the house in at least one or two establishing shots, need to dig up the specific episodes). Not sure if they're worth merging (as Pterosaurs probably) or just see alsoing, in which case not sure which page to mention the non-speaking appearances on (chronological, the one labeled pterodactyl came first as far as speaking roles).

    Could you update the image on the Anything Muppet sketches page please? Because the Summer Picnic one (which is at the very bottom of the sketches list) is the S - SUN skit.

    • That's interesting, I never heard of such a thing. We move pages all the time and it's never happened before. Is this a new software feature?

    • It's possible it could be a bug, in which case it's always a good idea to send a Special:Contact.

    Weird edit here on the page for "Episode 1014", Scott, do you know who did this.

    • Hey Bill, thanks for pointing that out. There have been some database problems on Fandom since last night. I think they're working it out, but if you find any more, please let me know.

    Back cover of fanzine/comic newsletter The Comic Reader #179 from 1980 (which also attracted contributions from actual comic professionals). Since it's unofficial on all counts, not enough for a page apart from maybe working into Minor Comics Mentions. But odd enough to share.

    • Wow, that looks like a real cover! Artist looks familiar, too. I wonder if it's the kind of thing floating around in random comic shops still.

  • May I request to edit the closing signs page? I'd like to make a long-overdue correction, for someone assumed that some of the shots already on the wiki were used for what I saw and described for Episode 0560, even though they are much different from what I've seen.
