  • Citytv source? Pics or vids?

    • Sorry, I had linked on Brad Smith, but not here.

      (Incidentally, the next morning after they aired the clip of Piggy flirting with him, he was on their morning show talking about how his contestant girlfriend had broken up with him.)

  • Hey, Nick! Thanks for adding Claire Danes to Sesame Street guests. I re-wrote it in a way that will ensure it doesn't look like we forgot about the article later if we failed to update it.

  • Hi, Nick! What were your sources for Thomas Sanford? Personal correspondence or Facebook? If so, can you try to dig up the specific e-mails or dates?

    I have a scan of the first SS Live tour cast myself, and I presume the others are similarly verifiable, and his resume at Explore Talent (ultra brief) mentions the wedding scene in The Muppets Take Manhattan. But did he tell you that he performed Beth and Sam specifically? Is that the source for the anecdote about replacing an injured performer? Otherwise, if the source was an article, you need to cite it (Google search turned up nothing except us and sites which copied from us).

  • Hi, Nick! Back in August, you added this to J. G.: "Nathan Danforth performs him in an Easter egg." It's been tagged for citation since then since you didn't specify which easter egg, and there's some confusion as to whether you meant puppeteering or voice only. Can you clarify that on the page? Thanks!

    • Sorry, I only saw this now. I've commented on that talk page that GonzosNose is the original source.

    • Thanks for responding! Yeah, I'll check with him but I think you misread it, since it's not the exact quote. Julian's statement was that "Nathan Danforth appears with J. G." in an easter egg. That's not the same as saying he performed him (some other bonus features have had cameos by Muppeteers on-camera, i.e. Bill Barretta with Joe the Armadillo in Kermit's Swamp Years).

      In fact, I just re-read and he specifies that "Danforth also appears on camera."

  • By complete accident, I stumbled on Glen-Warren Productions Limited, which is a good example of how good writing can save an otherwise fairly dull page. The two connections are fine but if that was all, it would be dull. But in listing other projects taped or filmed at the facility, I found what I consider to be your finest piece of writing on the Wiki, Nick: "iconic Canadian dog-saves-random-person-and-moves-on-series The Littlest Hobo" That's hilarious, accurate, and really the best summation of the series (that or "if The Fugitive or David Banner had needed flea shots," but that's too POV for our style; yours was exactly our wry but still within bounds spice we like to use). So extremely belated but I had to congratulate you (I checked the history to see who wrote that).

  • Hi, Nick! Just a reminder, please put pages you create into categories. If you're not sure where it goes, feel free to ask. Thanks!

    • Hi! With regards to TIFF Kids, I'm guessing that was because the article started out as

      This article is about an upcoming project, product, or production.

      . By the time it happened, I was just too eager to take dev off, and forgot to add categories. Out of site, out of mind.

    • Ha, I wondered if the template code would activate in the middle of a wall post. Indeed, it did.

    • Yeah, I just reminded you because I happened to notice it on several of your recently created pages (thanks for starting Geni Sackson, by the way; something I've been meaning to do for ages. I've been doing a lot of audio research lately, so I'm filling in the blanks).

      Also, remember new discussions (and the talk template) go at the top of talk pages (I know it's partly from Wikipedia work, and the fact that we're using the forum walls for most new discussions can confuse things).

  • Hi Nick -- It's awesome that you found some Shara'a Simsim info! The basic page didn't have much on it, so I took the liberty of merging the three pages you'd made and just making those sections on the show page.

    I saw that you added this to the main page: "Palestinian co-production Shara'a Simsim has been halted, with USAID removed by Congress." That info isn't on the show page yet -- do you still have the reference?

    • Oh, oops. I've added the info to the show page, with a reference to The Guardian. The story was in numerous outlets last week, as it was on the newswire.

  • Nicholas,

    I've spent a lot of time this morning cleaning up your edits. The latest Orange is a page you created for something that already exists on the wiki under The Muppets Gold Spot. Many of the pages you created today I had to clean up as they were sloppy at best. Please do a little research before creating an article. Find links to wikipedia or IMDb if they are an actor or actress. Please check links when you post them to make sure they are not dead links. Remember that pictures are 300px. Some pages today I noticed you had set at 200px. You make great contributions around here, but I spent all morning going through and trying to clean up a lot of your recent additions. Please try to be a little more careful in the future.

    • The only thing I want to add here is that the Default sort tag is a very nice thing, but if you notice on the edits you pointed out (and others where you added it), the editors who placed the article in the category used a manual sort option by placing a "|last name, first name" after the category title. It's a little longer way of doing things, but a helpful tool in the cases where the default sort can't be used for reasons of different alphabetizing methods in some categories (a rare thing, but something I do quite often on here). Otherwise I just want to back up what Andrew said, we aren't personally attacking, just trying to keep the wiki up to really great standards that we have all set.

    • Hi guys -- I just saw this thread now... I think we're being a little tough on each other here. There are times when a contributor makes mistakes which can be a pain to clean up, but having the information that they provide on the wiki makes up for it. For example, Henrik doesn't write in perfect English, but we're really grateful for his Sesamstrasse episode guide pages. It's a lot easier for the native English speakers to proofread the Sesamstrasse guides than it would be for us to find and translate all the episodes!

      In a similar way, Nick goes and finds a lot of up-to-the-minute news stuff, which is especially helpful these days, with so much new Muppets promotion every day, and new Sesame episodes. Some of his pages are better than others, but I'm glad he's here and contributing everything that he does.

      So we don't want to be too rough on Nick. It's totally fair to remind him to add the picture size or IMDB links. I think saying "I've spent all morning cleaning up after you," is kind of harsh. We all clean up after each other; I've made my share of mistakes, and so has everyone on this thread. :) I think we can focus on the specific mistakes while still appreciating everyone's contributions.

  • Can you please check out the talk page for Cleavon Little. It looks like you made an edit about him possibly being Proto Gordon and I have some questions about that there.
