  • Heya! I'm not sure if you've heard of Portable Infoboxes before, but I wanted to let you know I've been working on converting Muppet Wiki's infoboxes to this markup. The tl;dr is that it's more future proof than current infoboxes, and better on non-desktop skins, namely the mobile skin. You can read more here and here if you're curious or not sure about the idea. Basically I'll be able to convert all of your infoboxes to the new markup, which won't affect the pages or the content on the infoboxes, but will affect the code.

    I've made a PI version of the Song infobox here - any thoughts on this? I can make any tweaks as needed, but if it's all cool with you and the rest of the community here, I'll be able to convert all the rest of your infoboxes - as far as I can tell, they all roughly follow this same style as Song anyway, so it should be easy enough to do. And if you have any questions or need help with anything else, I'll be free to help you out. Thanks!

    • Hi, tec. We've heard of Portable Infoboxes. We're all set with them at this time, but thanks for thinking of us :)

  • Am I crazy, or didn't a Muppet Babies episode feature Robby the Robot footage from something?

      Loading editor
    • I've encountered lots of robot footage (including from Undersea Kingdom) but not Robby. It could be there, however. Forbidden Planet wasn't (and isn't) public domain, so more than likely, *if* the right end credits are attached (and they're sometimes from the hour form, or not included at all in circulating copies), it would be mentioned (the ones not mentioned by film title are usually public domain stuff, from a footage clearing house often specified, or they'll say something like "Additional footage from Columbia Pictures," meaning their film library in general, or some such).

    • Yeah, I'm probably thinking of another robot. A quick scene where Gonzo opens the closet door, sees the robot, and slams the door shut again. I'll keep an eye out, thanks!

  • I'm trying to edit something, but somehow it's not letting me do so. I'm just trying to make a minor edit which is spacing, but when I try to click on Edit, I get a message saying that This page has been protected to prevent editing. Wish I could just fix it myself right now, but I have to wait until October to do so and I don't want to.

    This is what I am trying to edit:

  • How many times am I allowed to resend if nobody replies to my messages right away? You told me it was okay to resend if I waited a day or two, but is it okay if maybe a day or two after the second message if I don't get any response if I send a third message? The only reason I'm asking this is because I still don't know all of your rules and I don't want to get in trouble with the admins for resending too much. I won't send third messages until or if you give me permission to do so. If you tell me not to send third messages I promise I won't and I'll just move on.

    • I have an account on the MC forums. Would it be okay if I try PMing him there? (I haven't asked him on there yet)

    • That's your business. As I said, you could try, but I wouldn't recommend doing so more than once (since wherever it is, repetition can still be a nuisance). It wouldn't hurt to wait a couple of weeks either so he doesn't feel bombarded or like you won't leave him alone.

      As I said, it may not seem like it to you, but it can be an imposition, and it definitely takes time and energy from actually working on Muppet Wiki. It's not an obligation others have to you (more than one of our other editors have outright told people not to ask at all when it comes to "where can I get a copy/can you send me" sort of questions). Rather, you're imposing on their time and schedule, even discounting what I told you (the possibility that he really can't tell you his source, as he was asked not to, or that the explanation is too complicated; plus as I said right now, he's actually screengrabbing from a high quality image source, so that's definitely more productive or stress relieving than trying to catch up on one's message wall).

  • Hey Andrew -- I'm not sure if you ever went to her profile page, but the user you just blocked, Emma watson799 had a completely inappropriate avatar. If you ever see those feel free to let me know; I can remove them.

    • Evelyn for a guy always throws me a bit also. Although it's the name of a main character in one of my favorite (totally indefensible beach-level) re-reads, so I've gotten a bit more used to that over the years :)

      And I suppose I could try thinking in terms of Angel the vampire.

    • I was familiar with Evelyn Waugh early on, so that helped. (I'm not even going to wade into Ashley, though, which as a modern male name, seems to mostly apply to pop music types, or wimpy Civil War-era guys who are pined over by Scarlett).

      Just for the record, I did check the Sesame appearance by Corella and they *pronounce* first and last name with the appropriate Spanish accents/inflections (at least indicating it wasn't meant to change the sound; so I'm thinking I'll go with "professionally credited" or whatnot). I live in El Paso, Texas, so here, I've heard it as a male name with accent and pronounced like the ladies who worked for Charlie (even by the people with the name in question, so it seems like whatever they want to use).

  • Some images on the Muppet Wiki show up as the image shown to the right (A picture of a mountain with a sun above it to the right)

    instead of the actual image showing up. This has never happened to me before and just started happening to me today. Do you know how to fix this?

    • That indicates it's just a loading and/or cache issue, since the files go to the right place. As I said, first thing I'd do is clear your cache (or just try reloading period). You might test it on another browser too if you have one. I'll pass it on to Scott later, but whatever's going on seems to be on your PC.

    • Definitely sounds like a caching issue. If it happens again, hold CTRL-SHIFT-DELETE which will bring up the "Clear browsing data" screen in Chrome. Wipe out the last hour or day (or however much you want after that), close the browser, and check again.

  • Hey boss, how am I doin so far??

    • Good work! I fixed one contextual change, but it's the sort where it was an understandable mistake. And exactly one link typo (Kermit thr Frog) but that's still a good ratio and easily cleaned up. (I sometimes find I leave out a square bracket or press shift and it becomes } by mistake).

      Oh, here's one heads up (hasn't happened yet, but): check the dates if you change a "Kermit" to "Kermit the Frog" for anything early. The earliest date we have for that usage is 1965, so if you get to any Sam and Friends-era or early commercial stuff, pipe it in but don't change (since he wasn't necessarily a frog then; we have a whole article on that even, When did Kermit become a frog?)

      So just letting you know that for the really early stuff, we have a reason to have him as just Kermit should you come across it. Other than the above, everything's fine (and with Scott's help, the editor is fixed; that solved several of the oddities right there). Keep up the good work!
