Hi! Friendly reminder, tapes are reliable sources *if* the contributing editor has seen them or they're otherwise widely available. "Someone on YouTube" saying they do is not a reliable source. If they uploaded video from their tape, it's a source. Otherwise, right now, if it's just that you read a YouTube user's comment saying the episode had that segment (which is what your edit summary suggests), Episode 3005 is a likely candidate for deletion.
If it was a video upload and there's a way to prove it came from that episode, share the link and we'll see what we can do. Thanks. In fact, on re-reading your summary, I see it's just that a user mentioned it, so we're deleting it for now. If at some point that user uploads it or shares their copy with you and you can actually verify the content, we can re-create.
The Videonow Jr. version of this episode was shortened to a half hour. They cut some of the segments out. I wasn't the one that added that segments were cut from 4018. You should ask the person that added it.

I have no idea who added the segments though. Sorry.
Hi, when replying to wall discussions, check the date first, especially when it's not about an ongoing issue or information. i.e. responding to a user on Jonathan's wall, when the message was from a year ago and the user has been globally blocked. There's no need to respond to that kind of thing.
No, he was globally blocked (they just use the same message regardless: "This account has been disabled globally by user choice, or by Fandom."; which also goes over any previous local blocks). And either way, there's no point in responding to him a year later.
All it does is cause Jonathan to get a notification for activity to his page. It doesn't communicate with anybody.
I could point you to other globally blocked users where it says the same thing as above, such as here. They likely just changed the messages (the example you used was blocked back in 2006, the others were more recent years).
But it shouldn't matter because either way, the person can no longer communicate on wikis. *That's* the point. And there's nothing productive in your replying to old comments from users who can no longer log in. Even if it had been voluntarily disabled, the point still stands; don't do it. Really, even if they weren't blocked but hadn't posted in a year, they wouldn't see it, so unless it involves actual information, don't dredge up old discussions on admin's walls. It's counterproductive and a waste of everyone's time.
Hi, looking at Episode 0355, you're really better off asking people rather than changing things based on a "How do you know?" Removing or repositioning info is never better if you're *also* basing it on "I think maybe it was here instead," as your last edit was. The edit change made here sourced the documents, and making a change based on "Maybe it was left out" or "sometimes there are mistakes" isn't an improvement (looking at the actual document, I see absolutely no reason for changing it, since it all matches otherwise and it's a good source).
You should start a thread if it's not clear to you where the info came from (you may have noticed we do this all the time), or if you want to state your questioning of it for the record. But it has to be discussed first, on the forum to get community responses/consensus. (I had to go through the edit history personally to figure out what you were even talking about; as I said, edit summaries don't leave room for that kind of linking or detailed argument).
Cite some examples of the tables that you can prove don't match first, and start a thread about it, please, so everyone can see it. You have to argue "This order could be wrong or missing something else," when what you did was took out a segment entirely (if something else was before or after, that's not impossible but speculation and there's nothing useful). The rest of that entry matches so I don't really get your argument (beyond pointing to a link, you'd really need to be specific as to why you've chosen to dispute this, make it very clear what it is that was missing on this or other pages that leads you to wonder, since it's not apparent from a casual glance), and we can't make any changes unless there's a community consensus with what you're trying to do.
Please in the future, never make any more "But what if/maybe this is wrong" changes (compared to actually having a source, like viewing the episode, to compare it with; yes, Everyone Makes Mistakes but it's not a useful point of view to presume it from production sources or to assume that if Episode A had/was missing this, then maybe Episode B was, as you've tried to do multiple times). If you want to debate it, start a forum thread.
Hi, I reverted your edit to Elmo Says BOO! (video). The YouTube link confirms that PBS aired it, which is nice. It doesn't confirm the air date (or even beyond the user's say so, that it was 1997, but I'll assume it was). You'd need a reliable source to show the date it aired on PBS, and that it was an earlier date than the home video release. It could be the case, but we can't just assume it. Thanks!
Sometimes you have to be patient (or you can try choosing to highlight the thread).
Never leave it on multiple people's message wall (some of whom are only sporadically active and wouldn't see it anyway). That's spamming.
In this case, the question you keep asking hinges on a "Who added that claim to the article and why, can it be verified," etc. which, for syndicated rerun cycles no longer airing, are really hard to check one way or another.
Sorry, I didn't mean to be a spammer. But anyways, not trying to be rude, just out of curiosity, why do people not always respond to other people's messages or comments on the Muppet Wiki? Is it because they don't have an answer or sometimes they're really busy and just don't see it?
Because they're busy, they haven't checked their wall and/or forums (you left spam messages for some users who haven't been here in a couple months or longer), or they don't have an answer for you. That's the reason for patience. None of us are paid for this, we have outside lives (jobs, families, summer vacations right now for some, other things), and if we're in the middle of another project when you ask your question, we may not get to it (and leaving multiple duplicate messages is even more of a deterrent, since someone has to clean it up as well, so we noticed that more than we did your question, and we're still cleaning it up).
Your forum thread, June 26th, was when most of us were focused on either the upcoming 4th of July or focusing on reaching our 30,000th article. Also, as I said earlier, you can choose to highlight a thread (we admins do that to try to make sure certain announcements or questions affecting page clean-up or categories, etc. are noticed, but even then, we've all started threads that get no response or discussion). So please be patient, or just ask a single admin (and it helps if they've been online that day or you are already in communication with them). Sometimes the answer will be "I don't know the answer." Thanks for keeping all this in mind.
Hey, there. I see you're having some trouble trying to insert images and segments into various episodes. I think the best way is to just copy the existing code for a segment in the table, and replace whatever image/segment/description needs to be replaced after you copy. For example, if you're adding a segment that was cut from an episode, take the existing code
and just fill in the blanks without changing the center tags, vertical lines, and whatnot. The segments run in a consistent code pattern, so if you just study the code and try to match the general style of the table, you'll be fine.
Hey, it looks as though you're having trouble adding images. I'd recommend switching from Visual Editor to Source Editor, which makes it easier to write out code. You can change editors in the Editing section of the "My Preferences" tab. Let me know if you need more help. Thanks!
Thanks, but I need further help. I put a new file in the scene 2 section on the table using the code that you suggested, but the image won't show up. It just has a red 250px where I wrote the code. How do I get the image to show up?
By the way, I'm an admin here (as is Jonathan above), so don't worry about being blocked. Your previous messages and requests made it clear you were having difficulty with code, so we've just been cleaning things up when needed. You've been communicating with us so we know you're not a vandal, just someone trying to figure things out (which happens to all of us).
