Context and Edit Summaries

Hi, Anthony! Just a reminder, read edit summaries before you redo something which an admin has changed (ala Rob Tygner). Not every "puppet coordinator" credit, especially for Creature Shop stuff which works differently and more often involves body movement or pantomime stuff for suit performers, falls with what's defined on Puppet captain. Please check context (I'd had to unlink some of yours in connections, because that's not how we handle those, and "puppet consultant," even though Kevin Clash once had "Senior Muppet Consultant" as a variation of his Puppet Captain credit, often means "consulted on Muppets.") Check the production context and the actual definitions used on the article before you link a phrase just through Googling (plus a lot of those "puppet coordinator" phrases on Creature Shop performer articles aren't even in credits, just added by performers as a way to elaborate on their duties, so outside of correspondence there's no way to even interpret those fully).

Also, advance reminder. Place names likewise need to be contextualized. I'm planning an article on Nashville the location at some point, but that does not mean every reference to the TV show Nashville should be linked (just if it's about an actual event there).

"first" in the song box

Hey man, regarding [1] and [2], I can't remember where we talked about the rules for when to use that and when not to. β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 15:53, 19 December 2020 (UTC)

If a song originated in a street story, I don't think a "First" should go in the song box. β€”Anthony (talk 23:29, 19 December 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, I meant where was it that we talked about the rules for when to use that and when not to. β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 00:23, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
Ant, are you removing firsts from songboxes because we discussed it somewhere as a policy (which I can't recall either), or are you doing it at your own preference? If it's the latter, then why? β€” Jon latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 00:39, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
That might been me setting precedent for myself. If we want to have a bigger discussion about it, I'm down. - Shane latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 03:18, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
Cool, I'll open up a forum thread about it. I just couldn't rememeber where we decided how we wanted that field to work.
By the way, Anthony, thanks for fixing my atrocious spelling lately. Spell check hasn't been working in Firefox for some reason. β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 13:33, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

Ant, please wait until we've come to a consensus about this on the forum before making similar changes. β€” Jon latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 13:12, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

There's one right here. It could definitely use more discussion. β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 13:35, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

i.e. vs e.g.

Hey man, thanks for all the i.e. vs e.g. fixes. I think a lot of those were me Emoji-concern.gif β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 11:55, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

No problem. Do you think you could change the link to Production order vs. Broadcast order page on the Muppet show episode category page to the List of The Muppet Show episodes page? Since all the info for that migrated over there. User:Antsamthompson9 22:36, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
I added the link when I migrated the info. β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 00:25, 12 February 2021 (UTC)
It just seems odd that Category:Muppet Show Episodes links to the Production order vs. Broadcast order page when all the info can be found another page. User:Antsamthompson9 05:03, 12 February 2021 (UTC)
Ah, why didn't you say so? I just updated the link. Also, don't forget to sign your talk page posts with four tildes, just like it says in red at the top of the talk page edit form. Thanks! β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 12:15, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

removing sources

Why did you unlink hundreds of sources pointing to a forum thread? β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 10:02, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Andrew said that all the links to threads have become redlinks after the move to UPC and it fills up Special:WantedPages. So I thought I would help him by getting rid of those links so, it'd be easier for him and anyone else who wants to make pages for redlinks. β€”Anthony 10:14, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Where was this? β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 10:16, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Forum:Bug smashing efforts β€”Anthony 10:19, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
We were reporting that as a bug. Meaning, it should be left alone so it came be fixed properly. I appreciate the attempt at clean-up, but it lessened the quality of the source cited and created an awful lot of counter clean-up. Please don't embark on sweeping changes like that without discussing it with the community first. β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 10:27, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Tonight Show links

Hey man, nice job with the Tonight Show links. I was going tackle them today as it got late for me last night. So, thanks! β€”Scott latest?cb=20200820192427 (talk) 11:05, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

My pleasure. β€”Anthony 21:20, 25 May 2021 (UTC)

Segment pages

I just wanted to say thank you for all those links you've added to the SS segment pages recently; I know it couldn't have been easy. -- Tony (talk) 12:16, 22 September 2021 (UTC)


Hi, Ant! Just a reminder, we don't create categories until there's more than one item to go there. So a Halloween specials category will make sense when there's more than one. If you want to argue for renaming Category:Halloween Episodes to "Halloween Productions" (we did that some time ago with Category:Christmas Productions), feel free to start a forum. But creating a new category for one entry doesn't actually help anyone to find the article. You're also better off using the forum or discussing it on a talk page than edit summaries when you're just stating an opinion or organizational tip not related to your actual edit. Thanks for keeping that in mind along with all the good work you do. -- Andrew Emoji-drool.gifAdminsig.png 05:11, 9 October 2021 (UTC)
