  • The 3 VHS prints of Elmo Saves Christmas all have different previews. So the content is slightly different on each one. Can I add them back in?

    • We don't track changes in previews. It would have to be something like a different segment or an edit to the special itself (as with Emmett Otter). Look at other home video pages. You'll note that changes in previews/ads/etc. aren't something Muppet Wiki tracks.

      If the packaging design was changed, that we've tracked in the galleries.

  • Thanks for making that redirect. I kept linking it and forgetting to fix the redlink. I'm wondering if it's worth breaking out Disney World to the individual locations. I've been trying to think about how to do it, but I keep getting pulled away from the wiki.

    • Hmmm. Well, for Magic Kingdom for example, we'd have to disambig fron Disneyland and as far as I can see it really only applies to references in The Muppets at Walt Disney World, a parade, etc; Muppet Mobile Labs was at Epcot (and as far as I know, unlike Disneyland and California Adventure, I don't *think* they had separate admission, but I was last at Disney World in 1986, so.)

      For Disney's Hollywood Studios, there's more material (counting the Disney MGM-Studios period), so it might work. But I wonder if it would be more worthwhile to just reformat the page, allowing anchored links to the relevant sections (as we've used before). Right now it's heavily focused on the list of attractions used in the special, which *is* neat, but at least as far as table of contents, it throws things off a bit. We could probably rework it somehow.

  • I made an unnecessary edit to Episode 3931, not realizing at first that it was an unnecessary edit until after I made it, so then I corrected myself and undid my edit. I'm a human and I make mistakes. Can you please forgive me? (if you don't know which edit I'm talking about, check the Episode 3931 history).

    • Don't worry about it. You caught yourself, which is a good sign.

      In this case, the main thing is that edit summaries aren't the best way to ask someone for a source. In this case, that user made four edits but earlier edits in January mentioned having tapes. So that might be a source.

      Politely asking just to confirm on the user's talk page is fine, and better than a quick revert. You may have noticed that admins often do that (sometimes even when we're skeptical there's a source, but just to double check and to help communicate how we source things here). The editor in question isn't new, but they come by very infrequently, so it's worth parking a quick "Hi, just to double check..." on their talk page. That's the best way to communicate in these situations.

  • How do I know when I should ask a question on the forum or ask a single admin? I don't want to keep making these mistakes.

      Loading editor
    • It all depends on what you're asking. Is it a general question about categories or policy or something involving multiple editors, or the community at large? ("What was the source for this/can this be confirmed" questions are general unless you're asking the person who made the original edit, which sometimes they can't readily remember if you're going back several years). Then it should be a forum thread.

      Does it involve edits made by a single person? If your question tends to be "So and so said and did this, but I don't understand/agree," then you probably need to be talking to that specific user (unless it's a vandal or they're not communicating period).

      If it's technical or existing policy stuff, ask an admin (and as you know by now, don't leave the same question with multiple people; for anything, that's spamming).

  • Hi, while editing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pages, I noticed there's no pages for Raphael, or Donatello. When I went to make them, I noticed you deleted them in like 2010, I was wondering if you could shed some light on that?

      Loading editor
    • Hi, there's no problem with recreating those as actual articles with text and images. I hadn't built them myself, and the deleted text was stuff like "Raphael Is Always Saying DAMN! whenever he is angry" and the Donatello entry talked about Corey Feldman's drug issues, and it was all written first person (not as articles). So not really Wiki suitable.

  • I have a question for you involving the episode pages that were compiled from faqs.org. How come you haven't deleted those episode pages yet? Faqs.org is not a reliable source and I want those episode pages deleted because we can't be 100% sure that the segments on those pages actually were seen in those episodes.

      Loading editor
    • What episodes are you talking about? Doing a google search, I can't find any (for that matter I can't find anything relevant on faqs.org either). You'll have to link to the pages you're talking about.

        Loading editor
    • These 2 pages previously had the faqs.org template, but that template is gone now: [[1]] [[2]] Now, before you delete these pages, we need to figure out whether these segments were compiled from faqs.org or whether they were compiled from the copyright catalog (the latter is a reliable source), as the now broken template said "This episode page has been compiled from Faqs.org AND the Copyright Catalog", but these pages only contain one segment so they can't be compiled from both. How can we find out which one of those 2 sources these pages were compiled from?

        Loading editor
    • Episode 2099 could likely be deleted since the page was started by an unreliable banned user anyway.

      In both cases, if info can be found confirming the episode number in the copyright entries, then that's fine. Faqs.org isn't a direct source anyway, it's a compendium linking to other sites and so on, so in fact it may have merely referred to finding the copyright info via Faqs.org (I had nothing to do with the template, so I don't know).

      This is really another one of those questions you should be asking on the forum in general (but avoid using demanding language like "How come you haven't done this" and so on).

    • Sorry about that. I still don't always understand what's acceptable to do on here and what's not, which is why I need reminders. Please forgive me if I got on your nerves.

  • Please excuse me if this is not appropriate for your wall, but I'm just curious, why do you guys always block users with an expiry time of infinite rather than for a limited amount of time?

  • Episode 3315 cut out scenes 1 and 2 that were seen in episode 3060. Because of this, I suppose it's possible that episode 3499 could have cut out the cold open and episode 2103 could have cut out some of the scenes after scene 2. Is it okay if I remove the cold open from the Episode 3499 article and all of the scenes after scene 2 in episode 2103? I want all of the information on this article to be as accurate as possible. Also, Oscarfan mentioned "We don't assume", and those edits are based on assumptions and it's entirely possible that the repeats could have cut out certain scenes/cold openings that were in the original airings.

      Loading editor
    • If you're just supposing that they might have cut it (which it sounds like), no. If you have video evidence from the actual episode to show how it was cut, yes. This would go for any episodes.

      It sounds like you're trying to argue for assuming that things were cut, as an improvement over presenting the known street scenes from the relevant plot (using an example of an episode repeat which cut two scenes which had a different plot and didn't otherwise relate). It isn't. An edit based on "it's entirely possible" is certainly an assumption.

  • I have a suggestion. What do you guys think about creating a template for guides that are compiled from Sprout airings of Sesame Street episodes, but we aren't sure whether they reflect the original airing or not? For example:
    This episode guide has been compiled from a Sprout airing, and may or may not be equivalent to the original PBS broadcast.

    • Hi, I think you're using my wall for things that you should really start forum discussions on. That's a better way to ask "you guys." In cases like this and some others you've started, you're either asking me when you're referring to another admin's edits (when really you should be discussing it with them), or (as in this case) it's a broad question (and ones where I really have no info or opinion).

        Loading editor
    • Is it okay if I repost on the forum even though I already posted it here?

        Loading editor
    • Yes, because this isn't the best place for others to see it (and it also means any subsequent conversation shows up as a personal alert because it's on my wall, whether I'm actually involved in it at all). You should only use my wall when it's something not involving people who you're better off asking (Shane, Jonathan, when it's their edits or a policy they told you), and not a wider show or community question where you either want or just need input from other people. (If it's the "I can't get this to work/code is off" sort of issues, that's fine even if someone beats me to it, since those are issues where we as admins are more apt to look at each other's pages.)

      I don't work on those Sprout pages or have any episodes or really think much of anything about a new template about it, so you should start a forum thread for it. Thanks. It will keep things tidier.

  • I just received 3 DVDs containing some rare Sesame Street episodes. That makes me very excited and I am desperate to see more rare episodes. Somebody on the Muppet Central told me that I should start requesting trades rather than just requesting people for episodes when you don't have any of your own. Now that I have my own set of rare episodes on DVD, I can start trading. It's hard for me be patient when it comes to rare Sesame Street episodes because I am a die-hard Sesame Street fan that and there are a bunch of rare episodes that haven't surfaced in years, some even decades. I am just trying to get my hands on more rare episodes. When people don't reply to my Muppet Central Forum messages, it really aggravates me. Because of that, I try sending messages to people on here as an alternative when that fails. If this method isn't appropriate, do you have any other methods I can obtain rare episodes?
