Hi. Please don't remove cite tags without adding a source to the article. As in here. I see that you added a link to the edit summary, but not everyone knows to check the article history. Also, that's a 30 minute video. We should indicate a time marker so that people looking for that information know where to find it without having to watch or scan through the whole thing.
It's a too early to add Vogel to the Count's performer box. We've only seen him in one online video and that's it. See Talk:Floyd Pepper for more explanations. Yes, Jerry's passed and Vogel would be the next to perform him, but there hasn't been enough material with Matt as the Count to warrant the change. Plus, we know Jerry's somehow involved in season 44 somehow, either voicing the Count or otherwise, so we know his tenure may not be done just yet.
And the casting history is nice to have, as it's noting how Matt's entered the role, from just the puppetry to the voice.
And while I doubt Matt will stop performing The Count anytime soon, there have been recent instances where Herry and Elmo were performed by new performers who confirmed that those were intended as one-time performances for them.
Hi, Adam. Please stop adding the direct-to-video label to the Playhouse releases. They're actually already in that category because the subcategory is in there, under Video Series (along with Playalongs, etc.) I imagine the confusion is partly due to the lack of a definition and some mixing already there, so I'm bringing it up for discussion so we can do some clean-up. But please don't add more to it, it will only add to the confusion. Thanks!
Andrew had stated before to avoid adding Frank to the pages, unless it was important. Things like Mr. Draper or the Marshal Grover sketch from season 40 would deserve the note like that because Frank hadn't performed since season 37, so calling attention to the gap would be informative.
Yes, you wanted it to be clear to those who aren't aware of Frank's material since he retired, but it's not "dumb" to ask that. The user may not watch the show as often as you and I, so they're not in the loop. It's far from a dumb question to ask.
As Andrew said, it just looks sloppy and redundant if we add his name on each individual bit he's done (like what you did on Global Grover). So, sorry, but I'm going to have to revert all them back unless there's a bigger discussion otherwise.
Hi, Anthony! Here's a tip/reminder, when adding a category, especially one other than the common ones (character, performer, etc.), hit preview, click the category and *read* the description first (or look it up first). I know it's not something some Wikis are as thorough about, but in many cases, including Category:Video Appearances, we make sure that the definition clearly explains what the category should include (in this case, appearances in productions or material made specifically for home video, not every guest appearance that happens to have been released on VHS or DVD and so on). Thanks!
Hi, Anthony! I appreciate your enthusiasm, but please try to be more cautious when adding Frank Oz to pages, for several reasons. One, we know he still performs, even if more sporadically, so adding him in parentheses on the Ernie & Bert Sketch pages looks sloppy and increasingly redundant. It does make it clear there was a period where he played Bert more consistently than his other roles, but that can be tracked either as a footnote with ekas, or even as a trivia note on the Frank Oz page, although we really try not to encourage that excessively (as opposed to tracking Oz performing new characters, or in more extensive projects like DVDs and so on, or something special like Spider-Monster).
Second reason, we'd need to be sure it's him so we'd have to check video evidence, and if there is none, well, it's harder to be sure. Bringing it up on a talk page is always a good idea.
kept the one on Marshal Grover, for while Oz was more active in Elmo's World and even got credit in videos and when the show was packaged as a stand-alone for international markets, it falls more clearly into the "notable" category not least because Marshal Grover himself hasn't been used in awhile, but in fact if we have no known instances of Eric Jacobson playing the part, I'd actually favor taking that out as well.
Finally, if there really *is* a vital need to note an Oz performance, always use a space before parentheses, and be careful with coding alterations. Probably a Wikia issue and not your doing in itself but your edits are somehow altering things like apostrophes and so on, or spacing on anchored links and so on. Thanks!
Hi Anthony! I appreciate the work you've been doing lately (adding links and changing redirected ones), but it looks as though you're misinterpreting the Sesame Street Episode Guide category, which shouldn't be added to partly-complete guides. Per category description, it applies to episode pages that have a picture and description for every segment.
Okay. I just think all the animated versions of Muppet characters should be in the character varents category as well. So, if that's okay with you, I'll add charcter varents to all pages for animated versions of Muppets.
