  • Hey Wendy,

    You added an image to Mark Antony that to me looks more like Lawrence of Arabia or Rudolph Valentino. Do you have the mug, or is it just a picture you got from ebay? I'd love to get Valentino on the wiki. -- Nate (talk) 15:25, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

    • Hi Nate,

      No, I don't have the mug. It was on ebay. Actually we already had it here, we just had a fuzzy image that I replaced. So anyhow, I don't really think of Lawrence of Arabia as a "World's Greatest Lover". The reason I went with Mark Antony was that the companion mug is Cleopatra. I didn't really think about Valentino but I agree it is plausible based on the outfit.

  • Hi, Wendy! Is there a way you can turn my talk page back on so I can edit it? I kept meaning to archive the last part of 2010, so I'd have an even row of boxes, but now I can't get into my talk page because it was locked from editing when the Message Wall went live. Thanks!

    P.S. As a matter of fact, you can still edit the really old talk pages. They must have just turned off the current ones, because they replaced the edit button with a "view source" button, and when you hit "view source" it says, "This page has been locked from editing."

  • Thanks for the Cookie tape with an unpunched card! By the way, that's a later pressing, because it includes "We'll Do It Together", which means it's between 1977 and 1983.

    By the way, have you seen A Christmas Together (album)? Urban Outfitters is going to sell it on vinyl this year! I think I'm going to try to track it down!

    • No I hadn't seen that. green vinyl? They do love making this album colorful (what with all the red singles). I wonder if it will be the full album or not...

      Interesting on the Cookie tape; would they have made a cassette before 1977 as well? I was so pleased to see one on the card. Usually those cassettes are rather dull pictures because the cards are long gone :)

    • incidentally, they were selling I am Kermit the Frog at my son's bookfair last week. So cool to see Muppets amongst all the Star Wars and puppy stories....

    • Yeah, they're advertising it with 13 songs, plus they're using the original front cover, although the back cover looks like it says RCA, so I'm not sure if it's put together from other pictures. The actual ad is here. It says Windstar Records, but I didn't even know they were still in business. It also says it's an exclusive, so I'm curious how many they're making. Apparently they sell other things on vinyl, like classic rock albums.

      And tapes go all the way back to 1974, but I'm not sure if they had anything on the back of the card. If not, then it would be easy to just keep it the same when the songs changed. I'm not sure at what point they started selling them in the regular cases like regular tapes.

  • Hi Wendy, where did you find this information about the second record of Rua Sesamo? I look for international record albums.... Hope you can help me out?

  • Hi Wendy! How to get a Message Wall? I would love to get one on Isle of Tune Wiki. I cannot find it in Special:WikiFeatures.

  • Hi! Ken left me a message because we're getting a blank page for his Message Wall. I haven't seen that before, just on one person's wall... Do you have any ideas about what happened?

    • Hi. Yeah. The tech team knows about it (and were supposed to look into it yesterday). I'll ping them about fixing it again. TOR didn't know what caused it but thought he could fix it. Basically I tried to leave a message on preview server and this is the result.

        Loading editor
    • Oh! Okay, that makes sense. Maybe there was some unfinished code in the release branch that we weren't planning to ship until after New Year's... so your message on preview got it confused. Or something. Thanks for talking to TOR about it. :)

  • Hey, thanks for those 45's! I thought we'd never find them. I can't believe we still haven't found the last 2 in the CTW series. I hope they turn up soon!

    • I confess I was wishing the Al Jarreau was the commercial release myself. I don't entirely understand why it is so hard to come by -- Wynken, Blinken and Nod is everywhere.

      So there was also this album. It took me a bit to dig through, but the "Holy Hawk" was ringing a bell. So here, Paul says he bought the album and found that it wasn't Sesame. Which is exactly what the seller is saying and suggests that his wasn't a fluke (unless I suppose the seller is him). It is just so ODD that they used that cover! I'm wondering if we should put it on the page as a cover ripoff or something, just so the information is there....

    • That's weird! So it's either a production error and 2 albums got switched, or they were bootlegging real disco records for clubs, and hiding them in what looks like a kids' record cover. I'll figure out a way to put that on the page, since now that we've seen it twice on eBay, people might run across it, and it would be cool if we can help explain it.

      More on Bob soon, but Happy New Year!

  • Wendy,

    You seem to be the person to go to for information. I am desperate to find the sheet music for the song "Leave Me Some Magic"..... Do you have any assistance you could send my way? Thanks, L

    • Hi. To the best of my knowledge, that song was never officially published anywhere; and so far I've never heard of it being used outside of the Muppet show. According to the script for the show it was written by Doug Hennings' wife (at that time). So I would guess your best bet might be to find somebody with a good ear to pick out the chords/melody for you -- the number is readily available on youtube I think. I'm sorry I can't help more with it!

  • Look! Jon found the back cover of The Best of Sesame Street! We now have a confirmed catalog number, plus a bar code, an address, and other stuff! It's on Talk:The Best of Sesame Street.

    • Wow! That's been missing for a long time :). Every time I see that I think it must not be a "real" album from the cover art. And then I remember it is :).

    • Yeah, I'm going to ask that blogger if we can use his pictures. He's got the other side of the Loretta Long 45, among other things!

  • Hi Wendy: recently you approved My Little Brony Wiki for the Wikia spotlight ("Around Wikia's network")--it really should be pulled. One of their admins deleted the wiki's mainpage, seems a little disfunctional to me. Plus, the content is all copy-pasted from the MLP Wiki (or at least it seems), save for fan fics.

      Loading editor
    • I'm a bit confused. The spotlighted wiki should be this one and it has a main page that hasn't been edited since the start of the year and is not at all blank.... the non-fan content pages I checked are not copied from MLP Wiki either. Which wiki did you mean?
