  • Hey, Chris! I've moved your sandbox articles to the Sandbox: namespace so they don't show up as regular articles. What'ch'a workin' on?

    • What Oscarfan said - it was just one of the ideas I had; I originally thought, since a good chunk of Sesame Street doesn't involve Muppets, and because the show was not produced by Henson (although they did have control over the characters), it should have its own wiki to cover both the Muppet and non-Muppet portions of the show, while this wiki would only focus on the bits that involve the Muppets. But that's just me. What I'm doing here is experimenting with the format for each character page. I'm also using these sandbox pages to jot down international translations that aren't already listed here.

    • Yeah, we definitely wouldn't do anything to get rid of the non-Muppet bits, regardless of what any outside Wiki chooses to do as far as duplication (as is, certain banned users have the rather horrid Grouches Wiki and stuff like that, just plain copying from us without acknowledgement or linking back, which even with creative common license is still required). It's too symbiotic and it would basically destroy the episode guides if we wanted to move stuff out. We have limits (i.e. non-series, non-song one-shot animated or film inserts don't get solo pages, but an animator or actor does). I could understand it a little more if a goal also involved, say, language translations (which we just don't have enough multilingual users to make that feasible). But if you really wanted to do the work, Wikia no longer seems to really have any requirements at all as far as starting a new Wiki (or at least none re overlapping or even making sense; one new Wiki I stumbled on is just one person's rants against weird incoherent YouTube mashups involving Winnie the Pooh and random other series). So at least that's still saner.

      Also, if we missed any confirmable translations, Chris, please feel free to add them! There's no reason that should be incomplete either.

  • Hi, Chris! Can you read Japanese? We found this on eBay, and I'd love to know what the back cover says!

    • Hi Ken. I'm looking at the link you posted. While I am half-Japanese, I only spoke English my whole life (in fact, in all my years living around Asia, I've only been to Japan three times). I know some Japanese, but not enough to fully help you. Anyway, from what I can make out (with some help from Google Translate), the back cover basically says that Sesame Street Fever is a take on Saturday Night Fever, and that Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees is involved...the A side contains "Sesame Street Fever" and the B side has "Trash". 

      Hope this helps. MasterYoshi (talk) 20:12, March 27, 2013 (UTC)

    • Thanks! I know you post a lot of Japanese-related stuff, so I wasn't sure how fluent you were. I was hoping that the back cover might have mentioned other Sesame Street Fever records that would have been available, since other countries got some of the other songs on 12" singles. At least we now have the LP and cassette number!

  • Please note that while you are free to use images from DEJIKI.COM on Muppet wiki pages, the copyright watermark MUST NOT be removed. You also must attribute the images with (©DEJIKI.COM) in the image captions, or use the reference tag (I have done an example with my Super Grover on Rooftop image)

    Please use the original, uncropped images with watermark or remove ALL of my images on the Muppet Wiki pages.

    • Hi Dejiki -- Yeah, sorry we posted the cropped versions! It's hard finding pics for attractions outside the US.

      I think using the watermark and attributions is totally fair. I appreciate you letting us use the pics!

      Chris -- do you know which pictures Dejiki is asking about? I'm happy to help fix the pages...

    • Yeah, my bad. To Danny/Toughpigs: I've just added those images and articles to the Delete category for you to take care of. In the meantime, what I'll do is find new versions of the same images that don't have any copyright restrictions (hopefully) and upload them here. MasterYoshi (talk) 15:55, March 4, 2013 (UTC)

    • Well, Dejiki said that it would be okay to use those pictures if we use the watermark and give credit back to his site. Do you remember where the original pics were?

  • Hey, Chris! Where did you find the picture of Caroll and Frank recording? I think that's Robin Gibb in the middle, which means this is probably from the recording sessions for Sesame Street Fever!
