Yeah, I get the same message. It may happen less frequently than it used to, but it still happens (I'd like to think it *wasn't* because hits from Muppet Wiki made the lawyer beasts aware of it, but...) I also find it pretty odd to take down old commercials or promos "because we don't want you illegally advertising for us!"
As much as I enjoy the visual of thousands of lawyer monkeys hitting refresh on YouTube, I think that practice is a thing of the past. It's all robots and visual recognition software flagging that stuff now.
It doesn't account for why David and I can see it and you guys can't though.
Yes, Time Life put out the episode (not the promo presumably but). Of course it could be that the only people who upload Debbie Harry promos are people with highly targetable accounts anyway (we have no idea what else either account had).
"You're My Baby" is already covered with "Beautiful Baby" (the official title of the song); it was also not factually correct (re-filmed version did not debut in 2001). "I Can Do It By Myself" was also as disorganized and there's no official name found for it yet on ASCAP or BMI (as far as we know), so we can't really make a page for it based on title assumption.
Hey, Enrique, where did you read about Faz Fazakas' passing? Did some insiders post it on their Facebook pages or something? I found Chris Smigliano did a tribute drawing and labeled the dates 1918-2013, but that's all I can find so far (and if we can at the very least confirm the day of his passing, it would be included in this case, given his importance).
Ah, thanks. Grant Harding just mentioned it a few moments ago on Toughpigs too (and did indicate it was mostly via Facebook, from private pages likely). Hopefully Henson will do a Red Book or home page tribute or something (since while a mainstream obit would be nice, I'm not too sanguine, lots of comparatively higher profile people overall have been ignored of late, but sometimes it's just random; my friend Harry and I talked about an inbetweener who got wider coverage and longer obits than many major animation directors, for reasons we couldn't quite fathom).
Enrique, the episode where Elmo pretends to be a butterfly is going to be rerun on Monday. Could you please record it so that episode could finally have a guide here? That would be great! Please and thank you!
Hey, Enrique! I hadn't noticed until now that Gerd Duwner appeared on-camera on Sesamstrasse in Folge 1270. Do you remember your source, or whether any images or clips were online? It may have just been a summary on the old Sesamstrasse fan site, which I think is offline now, but if it wasn't, I'd love to be able to get a screengrab of Duwner with Samson (and appearances by him seem rare in general, compared to Wolfgang Kieling or others who appeared in higher profile German movies with transatlantic circulation, or else in international projects marketed to English speaking audiences).
The problem is, episode order varied by market. As discussed on Episode 501: Gene Kelly, that episode was the last *filmed* and was really meant to be the last episode and aired as such in some markets, including a final Pigs in Space sketch. That's the inherent problem with a syndicated series where air dates varied considerably by market, city, and so on. Read more about the "final episode" status of the Gene Kelly episode on the Redbook (and we really need to update that page accordingly now that we have a solid source). We used the episode order from Henson's site which has now been removed, but that order reflects neither production date nor airdate (but we don't have a better system so we haven't moved either), so really it's best to avoid those "this is the final sketch" statements entirely.
I understand, but not by filmed episode, by episode number and release, for instance, I just made an edit on the episode with Mac Davis, and I said that that episode contained the final Muppet Labs sketch. Furthermore, on most articles, the episodes with Juilet Prowse and Roger Moore are stated as the first and last episodes. Does that change your mind, pal?
Sorry, the problem is, the episode number *doesn't* reflect the air dates or release, necessarily, for The Muppet Show. We have no idea what they reflect, especially for the final season. We know about Juliet Prowse and the pilots and so on, but for Moore, that wording should be fixed. Take a look at Talk:Episode 501: Gene Kelly. Also, I know you're getting frustrated, but please try to cooperate. "Grrrr" and "Does that change your mind, pal?" comments (it sounds sarcastic, perhaps it wasn't the intent) don't really help.
That also doesn't seem notable because it the final season, so it seems redundant to say "This is the final appearance of..." on almost every recurring sketch. Noting it on something like The Mad Painter (which is mentioned on episode 2483) is more interesting because it was a recurring staple of the show, which has since moved on without it. Saying the third-to-last (I'm assuming) episode of the series features the last Swedish Chef sketch of that series seems pretty pointless.
As I said, we still don't really know why Henson chose that numbering system but we *do* know it's not tied to either filming dates or market airing, so it's best to avoid making that statement at all (we make exceptions, as I said, for earlier seasons and episodes like Juliet Prowse where we know it was in fact first, shot as a pilot simultaneously with the Connie Stevens episode).
Please try to control your temper as best you can, and while we definitely encourage you to ask us if you question an edit, also read the edit explanations carefully and understand there is a reason, especially when administrators make changes. Sometimes, as with "Bird in Nellie's Hat," it's a misunderstanding and we correct it. Cooperation and patience are key to working on a Wiki. I know you've had edits undone and that's never fun, but that happens to everyone; and we the admins have done our best to be patient with you and to explain things on talk pages and message walls. But it is a two way street, regarding both cooperation and a respectful tone, and you *can* be blocked for that kind of behavior when it becomes a pattern.
As a friendly tip, you might want to find another area to work on for awhile. Or even take a break for a few hours or whatever (I've had to do that myself when I find the Wiki getting to me; my emotional issues aren't temper, rather more getting depressed and crying). We'll still be here! Whatever you decide, remember, we're all working on the same project for the same goal (something I've had to remind myself at times). So there's give and take and sometimes frustration but that's part of the process. All the best and hope this helps.
That's the kind of behavior we're warning you about ("butt in," "you're not complaining"; it's Enrique's talk wall anyway but I responded first, as we admins often do, when it's a matter of explaining an established policy or a fact which may not be obvious because it was explained on other talk pages), especially since both myself and Enrique have been very polite and I'm doing my best to encourage you. We don't catch every thing so the fact we missed something on one page doesn't mean that it's right. So please consider this a final warning or you *will* be blocked.
