Dan Foust

Hey, so, for DF, his character is in the episode but not himself? I'm confused. LetsPlayNintendoITA 11:27, November 21, 2016 (EST)

Nope, his character isn't in it either. Al Jean replied "part was cut and we never asked him" when I asked him. The Solar Dragon 11:29, November 21, 2016 (EST)
So the guy that went to Marge wasn't him then. ok lol LetsPlayNintendoITA 12:02, November 21, 2016 (EST)
The hostage negotiator? That was a guy called Blake. The Solar Dragon 12:05, November 21, 2016 (EST)

TLTH post on facebook

Hey, regarding this post Season 28 News: A Teaser for "Dad Behavior" has been released can it be corrected to say "The Last Traction Hero" instead? I changed it afterwards (forgot to change it before publishing :( ). thanks LetsPlayNintendoITA 15:51, November 29, 2016 (EST)


Hey, do you have access to that platform that releases the promotional images? (what was its name? I forgot) If so, can you upload the ones for The Nightmare After Krustmas please? The ones on wikia are bad quality. Thanks LetsPlayNintendoITA 15:57, December 8, 2016 (EST)

SF Splendor

hey, where was it written season finale? :o LetsPlayNintendoITA 17:23, December 10, 2016 (EST)

I took "Season 28 table reads come to a roaring conclusion" to mean final episode of season 28, but you're right. It might not be and might air out of order from table reads. Sorry. The Solar Dragon 17:25, December 10, 2016 (EST)
I think Selman's tweet "Season 28 table reads come to a roaring conclusion with a great script by..." refers to the end of the 28th production season, not the broadcast one. The episode's code is WABF22 after all. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 17:28, December 10, 2016 (EST)
yeah, corrected in TSS too LetsPlayNintendoITA 17:31, December 10, 2016 (EST)

The snerfsons

Hey what do you think about what this wrote? here and here. LetsPlayNintendoITA 22:07, December 18, 2016 (EST)

I wouldn't release the information on the wiki unless I was 100% sure of it. And to me, getting info directly from Al Jean is the best source we can have, better than other people's tweets, news sites etc. How much false info have we posted? Very little. And if a mistake is made, it's usually not our fault, it's because of news sites reporting stuff. i.e. Dan Fouts came from The Futon Critic. Turned out to be wrong. It's not like all these sites can be trusted 100%. I've posted a reply there anyway (turns out I have an account. lol) So hopefully that'll make them happy. If not, well, we're happy with the source so that's all that matters. And I know it's 100% accurate. The Solar Dragon 05:03, December 19, 2016 (EST)
of course i believe you wanted just to point that post out so you could give a better statement since you're one of the admins. Ofcourse Al Jean is the best source. I wonder why they even argued with it, thinking maybe we're some sort of site that wants to hide stuff or something. LetsPlayNintendoITA 05:25, December 19, 2016 (EST)
People love to hate (what a quote, btw), especially in forums about TV shows. Also, The Futon Critic gets the press release infos from FOX, as we've also done several times, so I believe that the "Fouts case" could have been an issue from the press release (it wouldn't be the 1st time). / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 18:04, December 19, 2016 (EST)

Space in TSTO pages

Hey, I was wondering if you can check this: for example in TSTO content update pages, there is a space btw Title and TOCUPrevNext and i still dunno what causes it. can you check it please? LetsPlayNintendoITA 11:36, December 20, 2016 (EST)

Episode Number after TGP

Hi Solar. Now that "The Great Phatsby" has aired, we should consider it as one episode or two episodes (pt1 & pt2)? I'm asking you 'cause FOX considered TGP "one" episode (S28E12), though it has 2 production episodes (WABF04/05). What do you think? This is basically because I don't know how to update the "Epnumber", "Episode credits" and "Mostrecentep" templates in Category:Frequently updated templates. Should we consider FOX aired two episodes tonight that happened to be the two parts of a story? / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 21:19, January 15, 2017 (EST)

Ouch that's a good question. It seems weird to me to consider them one though. I'll drop the question to Al, Matt and Chris and see if they can tell me what :p. LetsPlayNintendoITA 22:07, January 15, 2017 (EST)
I've sent Al Jean a message on Twitter so hopefully he'll respond. Depending on his response, we may end up merging the episodes together too. Or not. Not sure at the moment. The Solar Dragon 07:44, January 16, 2017 (EST)
It counts as two episodes, 608 and 609. So, we're up to episode 609 now. The Solar Dragon 08:42, January 16, 2017 (EST)
Cool thanks! LetsPlayNintendoITA 08:50, January 16, 2017 (EST)
Ok. I assume that part one starts when the "episode" starts and ends with the scene before narrator Homer says sth like "Fitzgerald never said anything about second parts on american TV shows" ('cause that is right half the full episode). I think that we have to treat the two parts as different episodes (e.g. Praline only appears in part two, so Taraji P. Henson should only be listed as guest star in part two; there's a harry potter reference at the end of part one, so it should only be on part one's references page; ...). Doing things this way would help not to have part one and part two pages being just one page duplicated! / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 08:57, January 16, 2017 (EST)
That's what I did in the pages already :p also what HP reference? can you add it? :D LetsPlayNintendoITA 09:04, January 16, 2017 (EST)
Oh the slitherin thing with the snake and the shield!! LetsPlayNintendoITA 09:07, January 16, 2017 (EST)
Yep Loco, that's what I'll do. The credits tabs should also be redirected to the credits page for both episodes, since the episodes share the same credits. It might not be as clean as we'd like, but it'll work. lol The Solar Dragon 09:13, January 16, 2017 (EST)
Still no info on next episode what it'll be :( LetsPlayNintendoITA 19:57, January 16, 2017 (EST)
My guess is Fatzcarraldo, but we'll have to wait and see. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 20:08, January 16, 2017 (EST)

Discus Stu LGBT?

Since we've been giving the "Tales from the Public Domain" Odyssey characters' articles a going-over ...

Does it make sense to consider Discus Stu as one of the LGBT characters? "Hinted to be Gay" would seem to be the appropriate heading for him, as he bypasses Penelope to make a pick-up attempt on Telemachus, but isn't seen doing anything more overt. Just want to make sure it doesn't sound crazy. -- Mythigator (talk) 18:18, January 27, 2017 (EST)

Yeah, I think that would make sense. The Solar Dragon 05:55, January 28, 2017 (EST)
I'll add it later today, then. It does present a "teachable moment" regarding a non-canon character's orientation not having any bearing on that of their canonical counterpart. :-) -- Mythigator (talk) 11:18, January 28, 2017 (EST)

Size in changes

hey can you not change the ones in changes as to not make them big 30px so it fits with the text better? thanks :p LetsPlayNintendoITA 19:00, February 5, 2017 (EST)

TGP Quotes

hey the quotes for The Great Phatsby are not working, takes me to the home The Great Phatsby LetsPlayNintendoITA 18:28, February 8, 2017 (EST)

You need to add them to the Part One and Part Two pages. The Solar Dragon 06:01, February 9, 2017 (EST)
What i mean is the part 1 and 2 pages, the quotes link takes me to the whole episode main page. no quotes page. its like it's a redirect LetsPlayNintendoITA 08:11, February 9, 2017 (EST)
The Quotes pages on Part One and Part Two are both red links. They don't exist. The Solar Dragon 09:49, February 9, 2017 (EST)
The heck? It... ok maybe it was changed early dunno LetsPlayNintendoITA 10:14, February 9, 2017 (EST)

Lemon of troy

I think he's referring to:

  • Bart: Hey Milhouse, how's the lemonade business?
  • Milhouse: It's clearly booming, Bart.
  • Lisa: I don't even want any, I just bought a pity glass.
  • Milhouse: Gasp! We've squozen our whole supply. To the lemon tree! LetsPlayNintendoITA 07:01, February 14, 2017 (EST)
Oh, okay. But still, I don't think it's really needed in the page. The Solar Dragon 07:19, February 14, 2017 (EST)

images lost to removal

what happened with the images? the non-xmas ones. many were removed LetsPlayNintendoITA 12:23, February 23, 2017 (EST)

I'm not sure what you mean. The Solar Dragon 12:41, February 23, 2017 (EST)
Some of the files that i uploaded the other day were removed for not being used for 7 days LetsPlayNintendoITA 12:54, February 23, 2017 (EST)
Oh, a bot deletes unused files if they're not used after 7 days. Are there any images there you need for articles because I can restore them. The Solar Dragon 13:02, February 23, 2017 (EST)
uh no otherwise they'd have not been deleted lol LetsPlayNintendoITA 15:29, February 23, 2017 (EST)

Character tables screwd up

Hey, why are the characters tables all screwed up? like cost says {{Cost}} etc. i.e. here with the skins LetsPlayNintendoITA 17:25, March 7, 2017 (EST)

Because I've been going through them reformatting, adding more info, correcting info and adding tasks in. Any messed up are the ones I haven't gotten to yet. I had to change the template to add the new info in. The Solar Dragon 17:37, March 7, 2017 (EST)
Oh ok. I updated the unlock screens that changed with the takedown update too LetsPlayNintendoITA 17:46, March 7, 2017 (EST)

I'd say for now the page it's pretty good looking uh? :D LetsPlayNintendoITA 21:43, March 30, 2017 (EDT)

I've sent you an email

What is happening with the pictures?

Hi, Solar. I've just noticed there's an issue with all the pictures of wikisimpsons. No picture is showing up. I think the issue has to do with "https://static.simpsonswiki.com". If you try to access the URL of any file, an error message is shown. / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 11:30, April 15, 2017 (EDT)

I sent email to jake and now it's working ;) LetsPlayNintendoITA 13:28, April 15, 2017 (EDT)
I emailed Jake about it earlier when I first noticed it but he didn't get the notification so was a bit late on fixing the problem. It's all fixed now. The Solar Dragon 13:30, April 15, 2017 (EDT)
Great! / Loco87 (TALK / Contribs) 13:51, April 15, 2017 (EDT)
I kinda forgot, for this kind of big problems with the site, there is an emergency email: emergency@simpsonswiki.com to be used LetsPlayNintendoITA 13:54, April 15, 2017 (EDT)


hey, what does this do I don't get it. I found it in J. Stewart Burns' page: Template:Mostrecentep. LetsPlayNintendoITA 11:12, April 24, 2017 (EDT)

it lists the most recent episode. We change it every time a new episode comes out. Since there's a lot of cast and crew who are in every episode, it is used in "most recent episode" in cast and crew infoboxes. The Solar Dragon 11:20, April 24, 2017 (EDT)
Oh ok. I asked cause it was still on the caper chase :p LetsPlayNintendoITA 12:25, April 24, 2017 (EDT)
The Caper Chase is the most recent episode. The Solar Dragon 12:30, April 24, 2017 (EDT)

HotCat Gone AWOL?

I was able to clear the cookies from Firefox so I could log into the wiki via that browser. However, things look a little different and I notice that the HotCat feature has gone missing? (I just uploaded an image and had to add a couple of categories manually.) Has something changed or glitched? -- Mythigator (talk) 22:05, July 20, 2017 (EDT)

You have to enable it in Special:Preferences now. It's under "Gadgets". The Solar Dragon 04:47, July 21, 2017 (EDT)
Got it, thanks. :-) -- Mythigator (talk) 10:14, July 21, 2017 (EDT)

Milhouse / Wonder Years

I've been looking for more references to The Wonder Years, and one thing that keeps coming up is that Milhouse was designed as a caricature of Wonder Years character Paul Pfeiffer (best friend of main character Kevin Arnold), and in fact we have that on Milhouse's article. Do we have an official source for that anyplace? It would certainly be appropriate for the Wonder Years references article (under construction in my sandbox), but I'd feel better about including it if it were properly sourced. -- Mythigator (talk) 10:14, July 21, 2017 (EDT)

I went ahead and finished the Wonder Years article and put it into the mainspace without any mention of the Milhouse / Pfeiffer resemblance, as it already had enough material to warrant an article. We can always get the Milhouse connection sorted out later. -- Mythigator (talk) 22:09, July 27, 2017 (EDT)
I can't find a source for it either. So, I think we should remove that bit of information from the page. The Solar Dragon 05:14, July 28, 2017 (EDT)
Don't we have asking Al Jean as an option? Maybe we need to start putting together a question list for the next time we have an opportunity to talk to him ... -- Mythigator (talk) 06:06, July 28, 2017 (EDT)

Google is your friend; you just have to ask it the right questions. I searched for "Milhouse caricature of Paul Pfeiffer" (without the quotes), and I found some documentation of David Silverman shooting down the notion of Milhouse being designed as a caricature of Paul Pfeiffer.

  • Story I first saw in the Google search results: [1]
  • Tweet from Silverman (cited in the above story): [2]

I think it's worth leaving the picture and speculation in Milhouse's article, but make sure it's only mentioned in the BtL section. Even though it's not true, it is part of the (real-life) history of the character. But we should add the refutation from Silverman and document it with the link to the tweet. The Web is so rife with references to the Milhouse/Pfeiffer resemblance being intentional that it's practically a meme, and it's possible that some folks may be upset to see it busted. -- Mythigator (talk) 13:21, August 12, 2017 (EDT)

Added to Milhouse's article as discussed. -- Mythigator (talk) 16:01, October 9, 2017 (EDT)

Potential Mediawiki bug

Have a look on page Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:User_1K_edits. Six pages of User namespace linked as Main articles. Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:User_500_edits and Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:User_100_edits are similar with the same bad links. --2F13 (talk) 12:36, July 22, 2017 (EDT)

Article for Hawkeye Pierce?

With all the digging I've been doing into M*A*S*H and The Simpsons, I'm thinking we should make an article for Hawkeye Pierce. We actually have as much canon information for Hawkeye (including an image) as we do for Max Klinger, and the Klinger article survived a fairly spirited round of deletion discussion, IIRC. A Hawkeye article wold also allow for tidying up some links on other M*A*S*H-related articles. Makes sense? -- Mythigator (talk) 15:26, August 10, 2017 (EDT)

If you think you can make an article for it, go ahead. The Solar Dragon 17:52, August 10, 2017 (EDT)

Lenny Kravitz photo

As you might have gathered, I've been working on the common cast and crew between The Simspons and The Hunger Games (no more creating redlinks, I promise :-) ) and I've noticed that our article for Lenny Kravitz (real-life) doesn't have a photo. Is there some reason why we can't use his photo from Wikipedia? The permissions info on that photo says that it needs to be attributed to the photographer if it's used outside Wikimedia, which doesn't strike me as being much of a problem. Or is there some other issue that I'm not noticing? If it turns out there's no problem with our using the photo, I'm willing to add it and make sure the photographer gets due credit. -- Mythigator (talk) 23:48, October 4, 2017 (EDT)

We removed the photo we had a while ago as we received an email from someone who was representing Lenny Kravitz and asked us to take down the image or face consequences. As a result, it would be best if we don't have an image of him on the wiki. It's stupid and it sucks, but I don't want to risk anything bad happening, so it would be for the best we leave the page imageless.
As for the red links, that's not the issue. Every credited person has an article. If they're not credited, we don't give them an article, unless they work on many episodes and there's a decent source to show they did. IMDb can be edited by anyone and I've often found incorrect information on IMDb, although I do my best to correct it if I do, or add that the people are uncredited etc. The Solar Dragon 06:06, October 5, 2017 (EDT)
Sounds like that anal-retentive rep needs to get off his/her own ass and get cracking on getting Kravitz's pic taken down from the jillion other sites where it can be found, then. :-P -- Mythigator (talk) 11:39, October 5, 2017 (EDT)

Comic Book Woman in "Mayored to the Mob"

In "Mayored to the Mob", there's a scene where a young woman visits Comic Book Guy's booth at the Con and they have a "moment" while some romantic Star Trek music plays in the background. However, it's all for naught as he shoots her down when she (indirectly) asks him to remove the SweeTarts from his beard. She isn't given a name, but she does have a couple of lines of dialogue and Maggie Roswell has a voice credit in the episode for "Comic Book Lady". Should she get an article by that title? We do have an article for a comic story character called Comic Book Gal, but she's clearly not the same person. I'm certainly willing to make the article if that sounds like a good plan; after all, I might as well do the sweat work to go with the brain work.

BTW, I got hired! It is a data analysis position with a local health agency. I'll furnish more detail and update my user page once I've actually started work. Apparently this employer's pre-employment screening process is rather extensive, and there are a couple of steps still remaining. It looks like I finally hit my "bad luck" quota and things started turning around. I interviewed on Friday the 13th (of October), had a bumper-scraping incident in a parking lot on my way to the interview, and discovered that I had left a sweater vest at an appointment earlier in the day. Not good signs!!! But I was offered the job, and later retrieved my vest, so all's well that ends well. -- Mythigator (talk) 23:47, October 30, 2017 (EDT)

I put a screencap showing the comic woman on my Sandbox page so you can see who I'm talking about. -- Mythigator (talk) 23:58, October 30, 2017 (EDT)

Yep, she should get an article. Simpsons World (the website) refers to her in the script as "Nerdy young woman" so this is the title her article should be at.
And congratulations on getting the job! Glad to hear your run of bad luck is over. The Solar Dragon 07:21, October 31, 2017 (EDT)

The Bart Wants What It Wants

Within the last several days, the same vandalism has occurred three times on "The Bart Wants What It Wants", from two usernames and an IP. And one of the usernames is a repeat offender (also did the same vandalism back in May). Is it time to start handing out some blocks, perhaps to the second-offense username? -- Mythigator (talk) 20:07, October 31, 2017 (EDT)

I have semi-protected it for 3 months, which should be enough to stop the vandalism. If I see any more from any of those accounts, I'll ban them. The Solar Dragon 07:28, November 1, 2017 (EDT)

Because his name, as listed in the scripts of episodes, is Pyror, not Pryor. The Solar Dragon 06:00, April 21, 2018 (EDT)
but it's spelt the other way literally everywhere else including the actual episodes and if that were a typo it probably would have been brought up in the dvd commentaries but i just stopped caring so i'll leave it alone -- 12:44, April 21, 2018 (EDT)
Okay, after more research I have found that you are right and that one of the sources I was using was incorrect (script view of episodes on Simpsons World has his name misspelled whenever he speaks, but in text it is indeed Pryor). I will be updating pages with his actual name. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. {{SUBST:User:Solar Dragon/Signature}} 13:13, April 21, 2018 (EDT)
