  • Hi. Why are you removing article links? Please don't do that.

    • Also, on occasions when redlinks are removed (most often by admins), an explanation is left in the edit summary, usually for one of the following reasons:

      • 1. The link is leftover from a clean-up or deletion.
      • 2. The person isn't relevant to Muppet Wiki (no connection at all or tangential like crew of a talk show the Muppets were on).
      • 3. The field isn't one we really cover (i.e. we narrowed the field on dubbing actors to those with identifiable roles and not "additional voices" and don't usually make pages if someone only dubbed a human cameo either).
      • 4. Absolutely no info on that person can be found online and in reference books beyond a single credit (not enough to build a page; either obscure or sometimes child actors and such whose only credit that was), decision usually made either after a discussion or an editor has taken the time to do the research and can't find enough material for a page (or it's one sentence on a co-writer or spouse's page or somesuch).

      and related to all the above,

      Hope that further clarifies how we handle red links and their removal.

  • Hi, when proofreading transcripts, they should reflect actual dialogue. Some of your changes don't match what's spoken, or the punctuation doesn't fit the actual delivery of sentences. So whenever possible, please check the actual episode first (nearly every episode is on Daily Motion or elsewhere). Thanks!

  • Hi Thomas! Thanks again for all your excellent proofreading.

    I'm not sure edit summaries like this are really necessary though, are they? As per your instruction, I did look the word up, and I think either/or works there. Jonathan might have clicked a quick rollback on the edit as part of a quality sweep admins often make through Special:Recentchanges, I don't think he meant anything malicious by it.

    • Also, as the one who wrote the passage, goony was the word I chose (both Fontaine's Silvoney and Crazy Guggenheim fell into that category, with heavy implications of mental oddness which goofy doesn't always have). It's a choice of a different adjective, not a typographical error or lack of knowing definitions.
