40th Anniversary Book

Mention that the wiki is referenced in there? -- User:Max riverbottom 17:29, November 20, 2009

It's already in the article. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 22:32, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

Japanese edition

Just saw there's a Japanese edition, and the main page was created June 2008. Is this worth mention in the article? -- Zanimum 13:06, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

While they're hosted by Wikia, they don't really have anything to do with this community. There's also nothing on that wiki, and there's a link on our front page anyway. —Scott (talk) 15:20, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
That's been abandoned though, never growing beyond seven articles. -- User:Aleal 16:19, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
I don't think we should add it. Though, it IS about muppets and the wiki, it isn't related to the ENGLISH muppet wiki! This one! Webkinz Mania blahblahblahblah! ### 19:57, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Ekstra Bladet

I just found out that on September 24, 2007, the Danish newspaper Estra Bladet had a article about Jim Henson and it's list Muppet wiki as a recomended link. The text at the end of the article says "En af de mest nørdede sider på internettet. Læs blandt andet biografier på 2054 Muppet-karakterer, en alenlang artikel om Muppet-øjne og listen over samtlige dukkeførere, der har arbejdet sammen med Henson."

"One of the bigger geek sites on the internet. Among others you can find 2054 biographies on Muppet characters, a huge article about Muppet eyes and a list of all the puppeteers that have worked with Henson"

Not sure if it should be added to this article or not Henrik (talk) 18:51, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

more Jimmy love

This may be too minor to include on the article proper, but I wanted to document here that Jimmy Wales yet again used Muppet Wiki as an example of "a resource for community created long tail content." [1]Scott (talk) 16:07, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Just to archive a notable observation here, the new Disney Xtreme Digital version of Muppets.com appears to have used Muppet Wiki's logo in an official capacity. The widget for the News Flash videos uses the Kermit eye as the title screen before The Newsman's sketches begin. As cited on this article about Muppet Wiki, I designed our logo as inspired by the similar graphics used in The Muppet Show episode 414 and the March entry from The Miss Piggy Calendar 1980. Now, it's a fairly identifible image that could easily have been designed by someone else free of any influence here, but I can attest that the logo was created from scratch in Photoshop with very specific dimensions. When I discovered the use of it on Muppets.com, I compared the two by dropping the original layered PSD file over what they're using and it's an exact match. The black outline as seen in the accompanying image drops neatly over the green version as seen on the widget. Instead of creating a new graphic, they just used ours. So that's a nice little affirmation for the wiki community that we're noticed outside of our efforts here. I just thought I'd point that out as a note of some pride for us. —Scott (talk) 21:34, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Holy cow! Congratulations, Scott -- you just worked on a Muppet project! :) --GrantHarding 21:51, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, that's unbelievable. I love it. The wiki has a broader impact than we thought. -- Danny (talk) 22:53, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Page Edits

"there has been There have been a total of 232,960 page views, and 151,793 page edits." --- that's not right --- but I'm not sure how exactly to fix it to get it to be right. George B. (talk) 04:38, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

I just took it out. That's going to change pretty frequently, whereas the article number thing is done in such a way that it updates itself. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 04:52, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

An Article of Its Own

Why can't Muppet Wiki have its own article? --Trogga 04:46, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Cause we are Muppet Wiki. I think it's silly and not really necessary. Putting a little picture of the icon on the right side of the page, when it's already there as the actual logo on the left side of the page... I don't get it. -- Danny (talk) 04:48, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
Wikipedia has its own article. --Trogga 04:50, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
Wikipedia is full of crazy people. -- Danny (talk) 04:50, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
My point is, if all the other Muppet fansites get their own pages, why can't the Muppet Wiki? --Trogga 04:54, 3 July 2006 (UTC)
I don't see any harm in it. -- Scott (talk) 04:56, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

A Funky Little Page

I just discovered this, um, funky little page linked from the main page. While there may be no harm in it, I can't help but feel that if it *is* to be linked from the main page, it should be worked on. It just reiterates the purpose statement and has the cute logo. At the very least, links to the FAQ or other newbie-friendly descriptions would help. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 03:13, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
I'd say it should have more to do with the history of the Wiki: date of creation, milestones, some statistics, when we were featured on Yahoo TV, etc. -- Peter (talk) 03:31, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
That works too. Either way, it needs improvement if it's going to be sitting on the front page. Right now, it mostly just says that you, Danny, and Scott founded the thing. -- 03:32, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
I didn't realize that it was linked, even though I was probably the person who did it in the first place. We should just change that to a bold non-link. -- Danny (talk) 20:39, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
