Ben, please read this carefully: Ken and Andrew's replies to your messages are fairly straightforward to why we've been blocking you from the wiki, but I'm going make it clear for you here. Participating in editing on the Muppet Wiki means you adding information. You shouldn't be asking other users to add info they may not even have (especially users like Tony who have hardly been active for a year).
If you have any Muppet-related info, you can add it yourself as long as it follows our policies and guidelines (Our page dealing with frequently asked questions is another you should look into). The most important of these rules is that your info must come from a direct source (a book or interview, for example). As our sources policy states, memories and guesses do not count, since chances are it may not be correct. This will be your very last warning. If you continue to make the same mistakes, we'll have to block you again.
Sure. For example, if you have a question (like if you need help with something, or if one of your edits have been reverted; which usually comes with an explanation via edit summary), you leave a message on an admin's message wall.
Also *very* big. You need to *stop* creating multiple accounts. Being blocked doesn't mean it's time for you to create a new account. You asked on my page how you could break the habit. To be frank Ben, that's a behavior pattern of yours, so if you want to stop creating multiple accounts and asking other users repetitively about episodes you remember, then *you're* the one who needs to stop doing that. That sounds blunt but basically, we can't change the way you choose to edit (we can only advise you, inform you, and if you persist in doing things you've been warned against, well unfortunately you would be blocked again).
Basically just stop obsessing about the episodes and asking every person you can find about them, *never* create another account, and as stated, add info only based on actual video which can be seen (on DVDs, on the Sesame website) or other *reliable* sources (not Wikipedia or YouTube comments or forum discussions, but for example, from one of the Category:Non-fiction Books, an interview with a Muppeteer, and so on).
I will stop doing so. But, Aleal, I will ask you this much, and I am just going to leave it at that. I realize that I have been kind-of really obsessing about it. But, I will ask you and then no more after this. Why haven't people been editing Talk Season Episodes of Sesame Street yet? I have been noticing for a very long time that nobody has/had edited them yet, nor have they found video information yet. I am kind-of surprised the fact that it has been almost 2 years without blue links. Yes, I may have obsessed in the past, however, I am just curious as of to why, that's all. I have noticed a lot of Sesame Street related things haven't been posted to this wiki lately, and I have also noticed a lot of other Muppet-related things have been, why is that no SS things have been new photos lately? I promise this is my very last time I will ask. I am just going to ask and then get another hobby on this wiki, and then I will not ask again, yes sir! Your message did help, in-fact. But why have no Sesame Street things been uploaded lately? That's all I ask. Why?
Simple answer once again. Nobody has those episodes, or anyone with those episodes has the time to add them. If there's anything related to the *current* or otherwise available Sesame episodes that you notice is missing, feel free to add it yourself! That's the nature of Wikis. They're a *collaboration*, which means multiple people sharing information and also means, given so many facets of the Muppet spectrum (Sesame Street, the new movie coming out, merchandise), that basically if you think an area isn't getting enough attention *and* you have verifiable information to add (not memories or "Please screengrab this episode immediately), then feel free to work on it yourself!
That's how Wikis grow. The talk pages you refer to for seasons cover episodes where we can't even verify the accuracy of the claims, so they've been parked there until we can both prove the synopsis (say through a TV Guide listing) and have enough info to make a page. Otherwise, it goes back to what Jon and I have been telling you. You're obsessing and assuming that somewhere out there one person has every single Sesame Street episode and is just refusing to update. That's not the case. There's *thousands* of Sesame episodes which we can't document because we lack info, and as we keep trying to tell you, they can only be added when either a copy of the episode surfaces (on DVD, on YouTube, through iTunes) or if we find documentation like those at the CTW archives sufficient to build a page. That's the answer.
That sounds great! Now, I will stop "Washing the Wall" (meaning obsessing over), these episodes! However, I do, in-fact, believe you on this one! Thanks Aleal! That is by far the best answer that I have heard in a very long time! And yes, from what I have been told, Sesame Street has more episodes than any other TV Show in the World. Is that true?
