  • I was recently watching the Plaza Sesamo series and noticed that there wasn't any mention about their version aside from "there being a spanish dubbed version of the letter song series", addionally; the letters are different: such as those below that I've known of:

    Letter B - "Baile" (Ballet?)

    Letter D - "Dedo" (Finger)

    Letter E - "Elefante" (Elephant) (YouTube)

    Letter G - "Gato" (Cat)

    Letter I - "Isla" (Island) (YouTube)

    Letter J - "Jirafa" (Giraffe)

    Letter L - "Libro" (Book) (YouTube) 

    Letter M - "Mono" (Monkey) 

    Letter N - "Niranja" (Orange)

    Letter Ñ - "Ñame" (Yam) 

    Letter O - "Oruga" (Worm/Caterpillar) (YouTube)

    Letter P - "Pelota" (Ball)

    Letter S - "Sol" (Sun)

    Letter Z - "Zapato" (Shoe)

    Also, can a page for the letter song series in spanish be made or atleast incorporated into the Letter Song series if its alright? thanks.

    • Oh cool! Of course they would make them different words :)

      I think it would be reasonable to create a page for the spanish versions, under a spanish title, and then go ahead and add it to the Plaza Sesamo song and sketches categories.

      You can link the page to the English one and link the English one back to it.

    • After making the original post, several more were shown on UniMAS.

      Letter A - Avion (Airplane)

      Letter C - Camella (Camel)

      Letter F - Fraise (Strawberry)

      Letter H - Huevo (Egg)

      Letter K - Koala (Koala)

      Letter R - Reina (Queen)

      and Letter V - Vaca (Cow?)

      While those were shown on TV, Plaza Sesamo's YT Channel never seemed to upload the rest of their Spanish Letter Series, as the ones on youtube are easy to simply take a snapshot of.

    • Hello again. I was going to suggest you just add those, but it looks like you never created a page for the Spanish version? I think that would probably work best, but if not then you can just add a section for "Spanish-language variants" onto the existing English page and add the Plaza Sesamo categories at the bottom. It's ok to add ones you know without a screenshot.

      And yes, vaca = cow.

  • Hiya! I just wanted to ask how do you add stuff to the right hand side column of a page like you added the Facebook widget? Is there a javascript you could edit to do this? :)

    Btw, i hope you have a wonderful christmas! ^^

  • Rats!  Logging in wiped out the message I wrote!

    Last year I think we were in contact over the matter of the Encyclopedia Fragglia that I had made into a single .pdf document.  Later, I seem to recall that I sent you a story I had written about Fraggle Rock.  Your reply seemed positive.  Of course, I'm not positive you are the administrator in question.  

    My plans included writer further stories, but it has taken me almost a year to write the next.  Assuming you are the right person, the one I had been in touch with a year ago, I'd like to offer you a chance to read the new Fraggle Rock story.

    • Hi Taral. Yes, that was me, and I did enjoy the story last year. I'd love to read the new one! Assuming you don't intend to upload it anywhere, probably the easiest way to get another to me is to write through Special:Contact and just flag my name (Wendy or Merrystar) in the message.

      Happy Holidays!

  • Hi! I've been inactive for a while, due to computer problems, a really hot summer and fall, and not being able to think of anything to add. But I've been checking in lately, thanks to the new Muppet TV show, the wiki's birthday coming up, and other things (like a record of the Andrea Bocelli Christmas album!). So I just wanted to say thanks for all of the record pictures that you've added.

    I also wanted to mention that the picture of Lots of Stuff and Clink Clank doesn't go with the 45 that you put it on top of (CT 255501). The Ernie & Bert from Sesame Street set has all of the same songs as the Havin' Fun Carry About, but it came in a bag with a handle, with a picture on a piece of paper that serves as the set's album cover, and all of the singles inside just have white sleeves. I didn't erase it or move it, because I was wondering if it was better than the picture on CC 76048. Which one do you feel is better? Let me know, and I'll fix both places. Thanks!

    • Hey Ken! Good to hear from you. I'm sorry you've had computer problems! I am not here nearly as often as I'd like but every now and then I get a chance to play a bit. And usually the first thing I do is try to find the "True Blue Miracle" single. I keep hoping it will show up one of these days!

      I'm sorry I mixed up 255501 and 75048. I get confused when I edit that table. I think the old image, while smaller, is actually higher quality. The new one is a bit out of focuse. We don't really have anywhere that we use a larger size anyhow, do we?

        Loading editor
    • No, that would be where it goes. Those 45's with the CT numbers will have the label pictures, but the album picture will go on the page for 45 sets, like the Carry Abouts. I'm hoping we'll find the 1st edition covers of those, with the Columbia logos. The funny thing is that you can find the Columbia 45's from SS1, and The Muppet Alphabet Album, all over eBay, but you see more of the CRA versions of the same covers for Havin' Fun. I'm thinking those didn't last as long on Columbia, because they were made 3 years later, so more of the CRA versions were made.

      I've almost given up on True Blue Miracle and the Disco Frog 45. Since they were among the last 2 made, I'm wondering if they changed their minds and cancelled them, even though they were listed on the backs of the LP's all the way to 1983. Even then, they might have just forgotten to take them off. But then again, I've learned to never say never!

  • I want you know that I did not make the edits you reverted on Supernanny Fanon Wiki. You see, there's a hacker going around various wikis named Novazoid who's hacking into accounts and vandalizing wikis in attempts to demolish them. Once again, I did not do the edits and I appreciate your undoing them.

    I would like to report a problem I've recently been met with on the Sopranos wikia. User FrederickM who recently was given the admin status due to your decision has decided to demote me without consulting me or anything of any regard for my current status. I have been monitoring that site for well over many years since you originally promoted me many years ago. And now this person came and demoted me on the merit that I did not make edits for 3 months time. This is not commonplace in my mind. All other wikia sister projects where I am an administrator, I am currently working with over 10 administrators and they never get demoted simply due to inactivity. If someone becomes inactive, they retain their admin status but we notate that they are "currently inactive". We do not assume control of an entire wikia and demote someone immediately on this basis. I would like your assistance in regaining my adminship which was very recently stripped without consulting me and maintaining that this not happen again as I am the strongest contributor of the Sopranos wiki as can be seen by my evident contribution in the past. I would like nothing more than to retain my position as the administrator without having someone infiltrate and demote the currently established adminship without warning. I don't mind allowing this new member to join the administrative ranks but I am not fond of having my own adminship stripped solely on the basis of inactivity for months. The Sopranos Wiki is the second-most wiki for which I've actively contributed in the past and I'd prefer to retain my administrative status. I do not appreciate being removed without any prior notice solely based on inactivity. Please reinstate the status for I will be making an attempt to add further data and make for additional informational guidelines in the future. Additionally, what you see on the wikia is under surveillance by me at a systematic basis for which I do not allow vandalism or any such mishap to occur. Such incidents have not arisen since years beforehand which is why activity has been lower than usual. But I would highly appreciate not being removed from administrative status at the time. Please reinstate my status as soon as you get a chance. Thanks again. The error in this user FrederickM's method is that we do not remove administrators currently enlisted in any wikia or its sister projects. We retain all the administrative rights and allow others to join and accordingly add to the database. It's incorrect to assume that having one administrator would suffice to say be better than another. It's more proper and logical to retain all administrators who are willing to maintain their rights as opposed to strip them solely based on inactivity. I am currently participating on numerous wikia projects and none of which we demote administrators who are currently operating. Additionally, three months is nothing compared to the years of editing we have contributed. We have some administrators who have been inactive for over 2 years but still retain their administrative rights as they may choose to return to normal activity. In this case, we label them as "currently inactive" on the administrative panel and allow them to return at their own leisure. To assume control of a wikia and remove administrative rights without consulting the administrator is little more than erroneous. I prefer not to continue debating this with someone who immediately demotes someone on the basis of inactivity. I've tried to report this to the wikia community database because I am highly dissatisfied with this approach. Any help in reinstating me would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance Merrystar! - {{SUBST:User:PrinceZarbon/sig2}} 01:45, May 10, 2015 (UTC)

    • Hello. This is a completely inappropriate place to message me about this; given that you also messaged me (and have been answered) on the wikia in question it is also completely unnecessary. If you disliked my response you need to send your complaint to Special:Contact.

        Loading editor
  • You've always been kind and helpful to me. Do you have an email where I could ask your opinion and advice on things? If you'd prefer - I'll be more than happy to send you mine.

    Thanks, trf

    • Hello. The easiest option would probably be to send a message through Special:Contact and flag it with my name. Would that be ok?

        Loading editor
    • Yes. But when I clicked on Special Contact, It took me to a page - but I saw no way to 'Flag' my message to you. I think other's could easily read what I wanted to ask you. I'm thinking that the message would go to a generic junk-pile - which moderators read. My putting "Message to Merry Star" doesn't prevent others from opening it. I'd just rather keep this between you and myself. If there's no way - don't worry about it. I just wanted your advice about a couple of things... nothing all that big. Thanks.

        Loading editor
    • You could just use the general contact form. The only other people who could read it would be Wikia community support staff; is that a problem? I'm not sure what you mean by moderators. We generally encourage all messages related to things on Wikia that shouldn't be discussed on a public message wall to go through that system as much as possible. And we always treat everything as confidential, just like a private email.

      If it has my name in the subject and/or start of the message it will be assigned to me and nobody else is likely to look at it. This is particularly true if you send it in the evening US time or on a weekend. I assumed you had a question about the situation on the Lost in Space Wiki and/or some other issue that needed a staff answer, but perhaps I misunderstood?

  • Hi! I noticed you deleted a jpeg called Emmet Otter Album. Was that anything we could use? I didn't know there was an Emmet Otter album.

      Loading editor
    • I was just deleting unused files. I restored it. Brad uploaded it in 2007, that would have been on Emmet_Otter's_Jug-Band_Christmas_(Matt_Surowiec_album). So not really an "official" album I guess.

      It looks like both images were on the page but it got accidentally removed when Scott put the other one inside the infobox last summer. Good catch though -- I'll put it back.

      We have so many Special:UnusedFiles; it's not surprising that some of them just got lost along the way. The trouble is they sit there for years, and it's not clear that we ever know we have them. I used to try to check whether there really was a better replacement before deleting but it got tedious.

    • Is Unused Photos different from the Image Chamber? I know I've got a bunch of records in there that I don't have any information on right now, but I want to keep them because I know we'll figure them out someday. Thanks for restoring the picture!

        Loading editor
    • Unused Files is for any file that has never been posted on a page. "Image Chamber" is meant to keep images people plan to use at some point out of the Unused Files page by putting them on a page. So your images in the chamber won't get deleted.

    • I didn't know about Unused Files. I'll have to go through it.
