The reason I removed them was because there was no info in the boxes. If nothing is in the box, then I think it's fine not having them. What Can I Be? and Another Good Morning Here on Sesame Street don't have song boxes. If we have info on the song writers, then those pages should have song boxes.
Thanks. I've also noticed you've improved on your coding. For future reference, add a sources section if you don't see one on the article, followed by <references/> so your source will appear. All around, good work =)
Just wanna let you know that Duke needs some help: http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Thread:191115. Also the main Muppet Wiki page needs to be updated to say that Sesame is in it's 45th season and maybe mention Fran Brill's retirement.
Hi, Anthony! Scott already asked you not to add categories for awhile. If you feel something's wrong with the way certain pages are organized, please *ask* first, starting a forum conversation about it. In the case of Category:Muppet Character Types, several of the pages you added aren't full articles, just disambig pages (and if you wonder because you see a page like Moles, then you should ask about it first, not try to make everything match).
I already undid those of your changes where the page is a disambig by name (Robin includes Robin Hood, Robin the Frog, etc.; same with snake) and Lemur likewise is right now a disambig (with Dominic included, who isn't a Muppet character). It could *become* a character type page with some actual text, in the fashion of Chickens, Frogs, Beavers or even Sandwiches.
Looking at the category, there is occasional but comparatively rare inconsistency regarding that model (so far, apart from Moles, Moose is the only one that's just a disambig page). So it's worth bringing up so we can do some clean up, and I'm glad you noticed. But we can't do proper reorganization without first understanding what's in the category and why, and which pages need to be either expanded or recategorized, whichever is decided. So please start a discussion before you change anything in that or other categories, like Scott told you. Thanks!
Hi again, Ant. Could you please refrain from adding The Muppets Characters category to pages until further notice. Andrew left an edit summary on the Andy Williams Muppets page last July basically explaining that they're excluded because they were not reused in further projects.
Ant, I need you to stop adding character categories to pages for the time being. Something as extensive as that merits a discussion with the community first. I'll open up a thread within the next couple of days, but until then, please focus on something else. Do you understand?
Ant, from now on, you're not allowed to add categories to any page until further notice. I think your intentions are good, but you're a little too focused on categories right now. Is there something else you see on the wiki that could use some help? Let's talk about that instead.
Ant, I reverted a few of your edits concerning substitute puppeteers for the Sesame Workshop gala. Most of them are one-time performances, not formal recasts, and frankly I wouldn't consider a lot of them noteworthy beyond what's already listed on the gala page. (Tartaglia performing Ernie is one obvious exception, since he's also played him for some projects.)
Not everyone checks the "See Alsos", which are for related pages or disambiguation which otherwise don't fit readily into the text, but when relevant and integrated, we also sometimes link to pages within the body. It doesn't do any harm and really makes the information more accessible.
We don't. Jonathan's point is that an annual gala, where the characters may or may not speak depending and are held up visibly by the performer anyway, are akin to noting non-speaking fill-ins or background performers. If anyone else plays the characters in an actual speaking role in a production, then we can add them. If you want to erase them, we'd just have to create them again if that happens and lose the Frank Oz note which really does work much better than as a see also. (Plus, to be fair, your current argument actually sort of supports our original reluctance to include more performers in the box to begin with unless they'd played the character enough times in major speaking roles in significant productions over a period of time; because we could be more specific about it in the casting sections.)
