  • Hi everybody! Muppet Wiki is one of the first to try out the beta demo of our new Forum feature. My team's been working on this feature for a couple months, and we're going to keep working on it through the summer.

    We've got some fun features so far, and we're going to be building more in the upcoming versions. We're going to learn a lot from having this live demo -- both direct feedback and just observing how it works -- and that's going to help us figure out what to build, what to fix and what to drop. So please mess around with it, talk to people, and then let us know what you think about the Forum. :)

    • Also -- I realized when I was setting up the boards that I hadn't given a single thought to what boards we'd actually want on Muppet Wiki. We can figure it out and I'll make more Boards when we have ideas. :)

    • Huzzah. (And it does use the same format as message wall, *but* now that my Javascript situation is solved, it doesn't matter). It will also help us with Wiki housekeeping. We always get, and always will get, the "Where can I find this toy?" or "I luv Grover!" sort of message, and we always have to remove and tell the user to go find a forum. Well, now we have one.

    • I think we stick to just one Board. We should still be talking about articles on their respective discussion pages.

    • Yes! And one of the features coming up will be a way to move a conversation from one Board to another, from the Wall to a Board, and so on. So we won't have to remove stuff and tell the user to look somewhere else -- we'll just move the thread, and their notifications will still work. That'll be happening a little later this summer.

    • Whoot! We're having a forum? YAY! I always waited for Wikia to have a forum.

    • Yeah, Scott, I was thinking about the stuff that doesn't have anything to do with the actual articles, or is just personal opinion or general conversation on the topic, but not encyclopedic. The people who just want to talk Muppets or reminisce about their favorite Sesame Street insert but don't want to sign up for Toughpigs or Muppet Central.

    • This is the best thing Wikia had ever installed...

    • I was thinking what about a board for "identification", I know we have a page for identifying puppets and one for appearances but I can see an advantage in moving those to the forum.

    • That makes sense. Might also help with a lot of the "Who voices such and such" queries which are either unanswerable (based on one line or general curiosity) and just stay for awhile, or become guessing games. (If there's actual video, audio, or other source, or if it concerns a major character or recast, it's still useful on the talk pages, but a lot of times, it's "Anybody have an idea?" and a string of random names for a one-shot).

    • Is there a larger bucket for those conversations? We've also got the "books that need images" stuff -- questions like "can anyone find a cover for this random storybook".

      I'm trying to think of what that board would be called -- something like "Unanswered Questions" but with more of a sense of hope. :)

    • Wow, this must be something new to learn every day!

    • Very cool! I'm diggin' the new Wikia toolbar as well.

    • We can make it simple, like "Questions (And Answers)." Or even vary what we've used, "Name That Puppet" etc. and call it "Solve That Question!" ("with everyone's favorite gameshow host Guy Smiley!")

    • Would it be possible to reply to a certain comment rather than the whole thread? For example, Oscarfan is reply #8 in this thread. If I wanted to reply to him, it would be great if my comment were indented under his. Lots of commenting systems on other sites work this way.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, we're going to add a quoting feature, and it'll probably also have a link back to the post you're quoting from. I like the way it works on the Tough Pigs Forum. I think the indented replies would make notifications stop making sense.

    • I like the idea of a quoting system for replies.
