I came across a couple images (this and this) that weren't generating thumbnails that I tried fixing with a reupload and/or a rename, and nothing worked. I finally Googled it and found w:c:community:Thread:786656 where a Wikia staffer says that images over 3500 pixels won't generate a thumbnail. I'm pretty sure this is nonsense, so I'm gonna try to figure it out.
Can you make a shortlist of images you've uploaded that are over 3500 pixels either in width or height? Just a sampling to figure out what's going on, don't need a comprehensive list. Preferably some recent ones and some old ones (from before 2014) if you can find them.
Thanks for the heads-up! I noticed the problem occurring across Wikia for a couple of days now. I wonder though, is it an honest error that is to be fixed, or are they simply trying to discourage content creators from taking up too much space with (in their eyes) unnecessarily large images?
Another wiki I've found the problem to appear on is Memory Alpha, specifically on Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection (see the second image on the page, showcasing the "models re-scaled to in-universe dimensions").
Does that help? Let me know what you can find out; like if this is gonna be a thing we'll have to deal with for now!
Well, I submitted the bug to Wikia, but they're not staffed on weekends so I don't think I'll get a response until tomorrow evening.
I did reply to that thread I linked to though, and someone pointed me toward w:c:community:Thread:1431449 where it appears that they know about the issue.
So, I'm not gonna run around trying to find them all (I wouldn't even know how to do that), but it's something I'm keeping my eye on. I'll monitor some of the known offenders and let you know what I find.
The photo is from the Eine Möhre für Zwei episode #89 "Zurück zu den Wurzeln" ("Back to the Roots"), but has not been released on home video yet. If they continue putting out new ones, it should be next in line on DVD #13.
But you might get lucky looking for it on a streaming service, or coming back online over here eventually, as episodes air in a loop, I believe.
I don't know why I love those images from Peter Alexander präsentiert Spezialitäten so much, but I do. Maybe because it represents a thing from a much-loved Muppet era that I'll probably never see. Then again, I wonder... does the DVD contain English subtitles by any chance?
Hey man, I found another batch of dead videos. The good news though is that I'm getting a better handle on how to manage our videos. Anyway, if you've got these and can replace them, that would be great. Otherwise, I can use the thumbnail in place of the videos and delete the description pages. Hope all is well 😊

Just FYI, as an alternative to YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, etc... I've been uploading to streamable.com which is stable and appears to be immune from content flagging at the moment. Not using an account, just tracking my stuff at User:Scarecroe#links
You contributed a lot on both pages, so I'm hoping you can help me figure this out. A specific piece that I'm not sure about -- according to Karen Falk, the final stop on the "Art of the Muppets" tour was at London's Museum of the Moving Image in late 1988. In 2010, you posted here that "Muppets Monsters & Magic" was at London's MOMI in 1989.
I don't know if you remember where any of this came from, but: is it possible that the MOMI/1989 date that you had was actually the closing date for Art of the Muppets' last stop, rather than the first (or second) date of Muppets Monsters & Magic?
The forum thread where I'm working on this is Thread:242440 -- it gets a bit long and complex. :) I'd love any help or thoughts you have. Thanks!
I woud like to use the image as part of the talk / presentation to be filmed and posted online via vimeo. Do you know whetehr the image is under creative commons share alike or whether it is under copyright?
I assume you should credit Disney, as they're the characters' owner and copyright holder. I might've taken it from the Muppets' official Facebook account (though possibly enhanced it, minimally). As this Wiki is not officially linked to Disney/Henson/Sesame, contact official sources to feel safe!
