Hi Nick, I've had to clean up your recent contributions to puppets included in the Canadian museum exhibit. Please review the wiki's policy on the FAQ about adhering to NPOV and citing sources over speculation and guesswork. Thanks!
Hi, I've been told in separate emails from Ingenium and the CBC executive quoted in the article below that the props, costumes, and puppets in their holdings are not going to Ingenium. The article below only goes as far to say that Ottawa I'd getting "many" of the items.
If we have a source that comes from email communication, please cite it as "email communication between [cited party] and User:Zanimum" and the date. But please avoid phrases like, "the current whereabouts of [or future plans for] said item is currently unknown." It reaches into the speculation area. Just go with what we know, so in this case, "the puppet was on display until 2017" or whatever. Thanks!
Way back in 2006, you posted here that "The Art of the Muppets" was at London Regional Children's Museum, London, Ontario in 1990 -- a year or two after Karen Falk said the tour ended. It's possible that stop was actually the "Muppets Monsters & Magic" tour instead.
Do you happen to remember where that info came from? If you've got a flyer/picture/whatever, that would be great.
The forum thread where I'm working on this is Thread:242440 -- it gets a bit long and complex. :) I'd love any help or thoughts you have. Thanks!
I'm seeing there's been further edits to the mention since I first posted. The claim that they were promoting the show is a bit of a toss up. They probably had an on-screen graphic saying their names, and underneath saying their program. But the whole thing was all of ten seconds, to my memory. They did not verbally hawk the show.
Nick, your additions to the wiki have been troublesome for some time, and I haven't really been sure about how to approach you on it. You've been here almost since the beginning, so you're familiar with the wiki's practices, but more and more, it feels like you find something in the news and dump it here without a lot of effort made into its presentation.
We're not Wikipedia. There's only a handful of folks regularly looking at RecentChanges to make fixes to new content, as opposed to Wikipedia where thousands of people are constantly poring over recent activity. Sometimes, it's possible that something may not get looked at at all either because we're all busy with something else, or it just flies in under the radar.
I expect a higher level of diligence from you. You need to take extra steps to be sure new articles are titled properly, that there's enough info to justify an article in the first place, that you're showing your sources, following our manual of style, and including visuals when they're available.
The content you're adding is good, but Muppet Wiki should mean something more to you than just a junk drawer you stuff a handful of penny candy into and forget about.
The first time around, the Salt song, I was stuck at work for an event, and trying to put in time between when I was needed. I discovered the list of most wanted articles, and created Peter Chung, Joanna Priestley, and Susan Rich Brooke. I intended to return to the Salt song, but the night got away from me.
As for the [[Animated Bert and Ernie math segment]], I asked private messaged the folks at Galli Galli Sim Sim for a segment name, they said that they'd get back to me, but they seem to have forgotten.
