  • Scott thinks that the page for Episode 3696/Rerun doesn't belong on List of Sesame Street episodes because, it's linked on the original episode page. My thinking is if we're tracking all the full episode guides, we should include this so the number of full episode guides on this page matches the number of how many episodes are in the Episode Guide category. What do you guys think?

    • It's not its own episode. Episode 3696 is already there. Why would we list it twice?

    • I can see conflating it with the other repeat episodes, but it retains its episode number and didn't affect the total number of episodes, as observed by the episode numbers following, so it's not really a "new" episode; it's really more of a special if anything.

    • Look at it this way: Hypothetically, if we eventually get full episode guides for every single episode, the average reader is gonna wonder why the page says 4,492 full episode guides when 4,491 are listed. If that's not a good enough argument for you, is there a way for us to marge Episode 3696 and Episode 3696/Rerun into one page?

      Not sure about marging (or Homering), but we can certainly merge the two.

    • Nicely done, sir.

    • If the concern is potential confusion within the category, we can simply remove the rerun page out of those categories; I'm not sure why it's in there in the first place, or why it has the various templates at the bottom.

      I'm not keen on merging the two into one; it'll be very long and there's too many differences to just do an "Alterations" table.

    • Since you guys are the pros, I'll let you guys decide what category 3696/Rerun belongs in.

    • Since Shane suggested that the rerun is more like a special, would it be alright if I replaced the categories with Sesame Street specials?

    • I don't think we need to categorize it at all. It's a subsection page.

    • So that will be the only Muppet Wiki page without a category?

        Loading editor
    • Well, if it's okay with everyone, I'm gonna do what Shane suggested and take the categories out of 3696's rerun.

    • Sorry, I missed the end of this conversation and I just put the rerun page in the episode category. Every article on the wiki should have a category (it didn't have one, and thus showed up in Special:UncategorizedPages, which brought it to my attention).

      If it doesn't go there, where does it go?

    • What if we create a category called Sesame Street Reruns? This would be the only page in that category, but it's a start.

    • I'm not 100% for it, but we have the pilot episodes in there and they're aren't really official episodes either, so I guess it's all right.

    • So how many people are in favor of putting the rerun page back on the list of episodes? I know Scott's not up for it, but if me plus 4 people are for it, I'd say that's enough of a consensus to have it on the page.

        Loading editor
    • I would consider it okay to be back on there, since it's basically comprised of two different street stories and a bunch of segments which don't exist together anywhere else.

    • I don't see the point in having the same episode on that list twice. It would be like making a separate page for the re-run version of the Star Wars episode of The Muppet Show and including it twice on a page that lists Muppet Show episodes. It's the same episode, just with some alterations.

    • Categorizing the 3696 rerun under the regular guides and episodes categories seems somewhat confusing, and I don't know if theres a good way to annotate it on the List of Sesame Street episodes page. It's a real gray area since the episode is heavily edited but also carries the original episode number. Maybe a more general "Sesame Street Repeats" category could suffice, and it could also house other traditional repeat shows?

    • I'm not seeing what's hard to get about this.

      It's an episode of Sesame Street, so it's categorized as such.

      But it's a repeat, so we don't need it in the List twice.

    • Yeah, I'm going to take back what I said - thinking about it again, even though it's treated as an "episode" and was aired as such, it doesn't feature anything new or original. It's just an amalgamation of the first two episodes of the Slimey to the Moon arc, using the 3696 number. And this only aired like 2-3 times within a month and a half period at the end of '99.
