A recent editor has added several dozen pages with categories we will never use, I would try to remove this with the AWB I downloaded for myself, but it constantly fails to load. So if there's an opportunity for you to remove them, I would appreciate it.
I wrote a civil message to Loonytoonarian on his Looney Tunes wall, explaining our reasons for the ban. He was very rude, and asked me to pass on the message that you are in "big trouble" when his ban is lifted, and that we are "enemies." I think the threat merits an extended ban.
I've done screen captures from Amazon and the images are clean of play/pause bars. Also, on Windows you can just do print screen as a video is running and it will capture what is on the screen at that instant (it can be hard to get the timing correct, though).
If something on home video is called something different in another country and has different content does it warrant its own page? For example, Scooby-Doo! 13 Spooky Tales: Field of Screams is just Scooby-Doo! Field of Screams in the UK and only has the first disc.
All of Ink-Doo's images need to be deleted as they are misnamed (and not even in english) and they were obviously just going to float around just looking pretty with no use being made out of them. I also don't know where they're from (although I can take I guess, but that's not the point) and I doubt I'd get a straight forward reply of where they were from as with most users who can't be bothered to answer this simple request.
Either you're an editor there or some of your edits are being transferred over there. Apparently I made an enemy because I've been blocked out of spite before having done one single edit. Admittingly though, they do have a couple of rule pages we should have already. The ironic thing is we could be seen as copying. It's actually not the first rival wiki I've seen. (I jumped the gun on that crossed out part.)
Because of attribution some of your edits get acknowledged. Although the funny thing is it says the same date you started here.
I was thinking of having a subsection under notes/trivia (well, really underneath its misc. subsection) that lists real-world references. I'm not sure about the references within almost every episode of SDMI because they're not acknowledged by any of the characters themselves (except for when Fred mentioned in a couple of episodes about his "trapping sense tingling"), although it probably would make sense just to add them anyway, regardless. What do you think?
I think it's appropriate to put real-world references there, as you suggest. It's really the only place for refs the in-universe characters cannot possibly acknowledge, like a name of a person or product that parodies a real-world name.
Do we need a news section because the forum activity list pretty much covers that? I was thinking instead though, to just have a new releases section for DVD, comics, etc. If I can just keep it up to date.
Scooby-Doo and the Funkadactyls are using a new infobox. I would like this to be used for all regular characters. The only thing is is that isn't called "Character Infobox", it's just called "Character". The coding for the "first appearance" row has been shortened down to just "firstapp". Of course, the pages using the old infobox could just be renamed so they'd be using the new one, but the bot would have to also change the row. Another option is is to just insert the new character infobox into the old character infobox template. The later would be probably be easier. I just wanted to know if you would prefer the abbreviations of either one of those?
Loch Ness Monster (Scooby-Doo! And The Loch Ness Monster) is testing a new monster infobox. It's using a new tab feature (which the new character infobox also has) which goes up to four. I think having that may give more space for the page. I thought this would come in handy for the different identities of the Phantom from Stage Fright, but that would take up five rows. Of course, I could add another row, but it would get out of control if a monster was to have six, seven, etc. identities. (Should each culprit of the aforementioned monster have their own page or just be one page, with or without tabs (which wouldn't be possible anyway with the four tab limit)). So, that new (neutral) monster infobox would need to replace the fake monster and real monster infoboxes. I was also thinking of adding "identity2" and "reason2", etc. to match the amount of tabs being used, instead of cramming all the identities and then reasons all on one row.
If you mean that the bottom half of the infobox is smaller, then I know. The monster infobox has the same problem. I had it fixed for the character infobox, I'll do it for the others soon.
Yes, that's what I was talking about. The new infoboxes look great, overall. I like the new information slots and how they can be expanded on demand.
One other question on color choices. With all the links showing up as red it's no longer easy to find what pages need to be created. Is that intentional?
The characters infoboxes should have images of them of how they envolved through the years, in different forms and the main image should be a promo image like how the SpongeBob and Fairly OddParents wikis have.
We're going with in-universe up to date images. I can't help with the way things turn out, we're just showing how they look today. I know some wikis use character artwork and promotional images, but I never really cared for it myself.
I think we have two spoiler tags; one for films and one for TV. I think they should be merged into one. I also think they're could be a tag for upcoming products (for merchandise which would also include comics and books). Now that we have a new TV series coming, I think a tag somewhere between a spoiler notice and something that's just soon to be aired. I have an image already in mind for that; the scene in Uncle Scooby and Antarctica, where Scooby and Shaggy are flipping the channels on the TV, but only get static.
