Hello, Cook879, and welcome to Wikisimpsons!

Thank you for taking an interest in our wiki. If you have any troubles, feel free to ask questions on my talk page or any other any experienced editors' talk page. Also, you could look at a help page.

Here are a few pages to help out new editors such as yourself:

Please sign your name on talk pages by using four tildes (~~~~). This will automatically produce your name and the date. Signing your comments is important, as it lets other editors know who has posted which comments.

Again, welcome! ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 16:18, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Come to our IRC channel then. Wikisimpsons:IRC. we have a different channel now on ShoutWiki's IRC server. Glad to see you here. I ca get your edit count transferred to this account too. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 16:18, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

RE: Project Crew[edit]

Cast does count. The template is here. Can you also do this template as well. Doh5678 (Any Notices) • (My Edits) • (Wikipedia Page)


I Doh Bot[edit]

Sorry about that. Just testing to see whether the bot works. Doh5678 17:23, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Itchy & Scratchy episodes[edit]

Generally in the past we haven't been putting Appearances sections on Itchy & Scratchy episodes. I've always had the impression that for I&S episodes, the infobox was considered sufficient, and they seem to have a style all their own apart from the rest of the wiki. That said, though, if you think it's a good idea to tweak that style a bit and start putting Appearances sections on them, I'm OK with it. Just please let me know, and we can both get it on it and get all of the I&S episodes done so that they're consistent with each other. If you think, for instance, that the I&S episodes should have Appearances sections so that their style is more consistent with the rest of the wiki, that's fine by me, but I think that if we're going to start, we should go ahead and get them all done in fairly short order. Maybe we should put that task on the to-do list? Thanks and please let me know what you think. -- Mythigator 16:28, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

Coolness! Thanks for your reply. I really need to get on IRC so I don't keep missing "staff meetings". :-) Once "I&S episode appearances" shows up on the task list, I'll be happy to pitch in. -- Mythigator 16:46, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
Hope I didn't put you out too badly by raising the task list, but I think it's a good idea as it will get everyone on the same wavelength. I present myself as a case in point. Also, a list of tasks (especially done ones) 1) shows that we're making continual progress in improving the wiki and 2) sends a really powerful message to w***a that they can stick it because we can make a damn good wiki without their involvement. Matter of fact, if you do a Google search for recent topics on The Simpsons (say, Thicker than Waters), we're starting to show up three or even FOUR times in the first few search results, while w***a is either further down the list or nowhere to be found. -- Mythigator 17:03, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

The Simpsons Super Spectacular[edit]

Hi! I think it is the same because when i look at the information at snpp: Simpsons Super Spectacular #10 (Jan 2010)

The Brave and the Bald Pages: 10 Script: Ian Boothby Pencils: John Costanza Inks: Phyllis Novin Colors: Robert Stanley Letters: Karen Bates Editor: Bill Morrison Radioactive Man vs. Retroactive Man! Pages: 12 Script: Batton Lash Pencils: Tone Rodriguez Inks: Dan Davis Colors: Rick Reese Letters: Karen Bates Editor: Bill Morrison Introducing The Unleashed Legion!

Ultradog!  Conjure Cat!  Monkey Business!  Poindexter Parrot!

Pages: 7 Script: Mike W. Barr Pencils & Inks: Mile Kazaleh Colors: Alan Hellard Letters: Karen Bates Editor: Bill Morrison

they have the same Stories anyway because my UK edition of the comics has: The Brave and the Bald Introducing The Unleashed Legion! Ultradog! Conjure Cat! Monkey Business! Poindexter Parrot! Radioactive Man vs. Retroactive Man!

The only difference with the coics is the advertising i think + the UK edition has toy (Cool Maze Game) FatHomer 13:35, 20 February 2011 (UTC)FatHomer

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for being proud about the edit on Sven Simpson thanks 156.34.177.35

Project Comics[edit]

Hi! Can't we move this: User:Cook879/Comics to Wikisimpsons:Project_Comics/canonicity or something? FatHomerTalk 18:46, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Deltet templates[edit]

Hi, could you delete these templates? Template:Persondata Template:Persondata/doc Template:Documentation subpage and why do we need pages like these? User:Pete815? FatHomerTalk 20:15, 5 August 2011 (EDT)

A small task[edit]

Can you put Forum:Doh5678's wiki ideas into the site notice as a community thing. Can you comment on it also. Thanks, Doh5678 (talk) 16:43, 8 August 2011 (EDT)

Where did it go?[edit]

Why have many of the pages dissapeared? Wikisimpsons:Comic_Canonicity FatHomerTalk 12:44, 12 August 2011 (EDT)

Question...[edit]

Two of the videogames from "Marge Be Not Proud" have typos in their names. Should I make the pages using the typo'd name, or using the name they're supposed to have? eg:

One of the games is called "Celebrity Tutopsy" but that's an obvious typo and the title should be "Celebrity Autopsy." So, which one should I name the page?

The other game is "Angus Podgorny's Caper Toss" but it should say "Caber Toss." --Nick97 11:49, 17 August 2011 (EDT)

Project Re-Watch active.[edit]

Hi, can you say that project re-watch is active again. I'll still have colonel homer as episode because it needs more. FatHomerTalk 09:47, 21 August 2011 (EDT)

In sitenotice. FatHomerTalk 09:48, 21 August 2011 (EDT)
Done--Cook879 11:59, 21 August 2011 (EDT)

Can you tell people to help on project re-watch?[edit]

Hi, could you add that to the sitenotice? I'll start changing episodes on mondays. FatHomerTalk 13:34, 4 September 2011 (EDT)

I'll do it when you changed the episode :)--Cook879 15:01, 4 September 2011 (EDT)

The Doh Award[edit]

User:Doh5678/D'oh award

For your idiotic mistake here Doh5678 (talk) 16:15, 5 September 2011 (EDT)

Merchandise Award and other awards[edit]

Do you think you could add the Merchandise Award and the Golden Homer Awards to the sitenotice please. Thanks, Phinbart - just one of the huge Bart fans! 08:45, 6 September 2011 (EDT).

Done--Cook879 12:15, 6 September 2011 (EDT)

How minor is minor?[edit]

I think we have to decide wich characters we should create pages for. Are we only creating character pages with speaking characters?

See Wikisimpsons: Notability. However i think speaking characters could be added to that list as well, as the later episode guides list all speaking roles. This would be a matter for discussion though.--Cook879 09:55, 7 September 2011 (EDT)

Small task[edit]

Could you add the this and this Saturday's editor meeting to the sitenotice, please. Thanks, Doh5678 (talk) 07:19, 8 September 2011 (EDT)

Done--Cook879 13:01, 8 September 2011 (EDT)

You're in charge[edit]

Hey, would you mind being in charge of the wiki until I feel up to returning fully? Thanks, Solar Dragon (Talk Contribs.) 10:26, 8 September 2011 (EDT)

If you want, though i won't have as much time online, with anything before 5pm pretty much ruled out.--Cook879 13:02, 8 September 2011 (EDT)

Merchandise Award[edit]

You have been awarded:

Bart surrounded by Krusty merchandise.png You have been awarded
The Merchandise Award
for adding the most merchandise info to the wiki on the week beginning September 5, 2011.

This week's award was a trial run, and that's why it's ended pretty early, but next week we just focus on merchandise info, and no other template category business. Feel free to add it to your user page! Phinbart - just one of the huge Bart fans! 06:35, 11 September 2011 (EDT)

A couple of things[edit]

Firstly, I've nominated you to become a beuracrat. You can find the nom here as I'm guessing you need to accept. Secondly, can you put that in the sitenotice. --Doh5678 (talk) 13:52, 16 September 2011 (EDT)

Thanks :) and done.--Cook879 14:47, 16 September 2011 (EDT)

Merchandise Wiki[edit]

Should comics collections get moved? There are many links that need to be changed then. /AleWi 13:37, 19 September 2011 (EDT)

Wales[edit]

Good luck in Wales! You're so lucky you get to go there :P but I suppose you're way closer than me! --Will (talk) 03:01, 12 December 2011 (EST)

Hahahahahhaaha lucky - cold, rain, hail, wind - so lucky.--Cook879 12:07, 15 December 2011 (EST)

Piwik[edit]

Can you give me the link to our Piwik stats page please? I had to do a system restore so lost all my bookmarks etc. Thanks, SolarDragonName.png (Talk - Contribs.) 08:29, 17 December 2011 (EST)

You could probably do without most if the bits on the end: http://simpsonswiki.net/piwik/index.php?module=CoreHome&action=index&idSite=1&period=day&date=yesterday#module=Dashboard&action=embeddedIndex&idSite=1&period=day&date=yesterday --Cook879 10:26, 17 December 2011 (EST)

Non-canon title[edit]

Shouldn't the non-canon title be "Non-Canon Appearances". Homer Simpson is "Non Canon Appearance", and Bart is "Non Canon Appearances", Maggie is "Non-Canon Appearances", and Marge is "Non-canon". Pretty messed up. You might want to change them with your bot or something. Randomno 14:21, 22 January 2012 (EST)

They should all be "Non-canon".--Cook879 14:22, 22 January 2012 (EST)
Has it been discussed somewhere, or have you decided it yourself? I just think Non-canon is a bit non-descriptive. Randomno 14:27, 22 January 2012 (EST)
It's just been changed to that various times in the past. I don't know who/when, but it keeps it in-universe.--Cook879 14:29, 22 January 2012 (EST)

Merging[edit]

I wouldn't take any further action in the merge without notifying TheShdaowCrow and RRabbit42. They are the main ones you will have to convince. Any blocks will be unblocked by me and I will speak with them if they are in disagreement with you, to be able to discuss it. However, chat is a rarity for them, so you will have to message them on their talk pages. Also, just because you have Randomno does mean I will want to leave. And on some comments I saw in chat (sorry was sleeping at the time), we have our own awards system too. We recently introduced more achievements that were previously disable, and we have seen an increase in editing, with very little spam editing. Any spam editing was very easy to control also, so if you're capable of getting it, I would suggest it. But then again, that might be me helping the enemy. Also, if we overtake Simpsons Wiki, does that mean revenue would actually be high enough for admin payment (as minor as it might be}? Jhonevans 16:19, 23 January 2012 (EST)

Renaming file?[edit]

Hello, Cook. I've been wondering how to rename a file. Do I need to be granted powers to do so? Anyway talking about renamed files, would you be a sport and move File:Rangercall.JPG to File:Park ranger.jpg, that would be great! --Fred (Talk) 22:48, 31 January 2012 (EST)

Users need at use rollback rights in order to rename files. I will, however, look into a specific right to be able to rename images and possibly a couple of other features. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 02:17, 1 February 2012 (EST)
Moved.--Cook879 12:17, 1 February 2012 (EST)
Freakin' Sweet! Thanks :D. --Fred (Talk) 21:32, 1 February 2012 (EST)

No title inserted[edit]

Can you view IPs on IRC? Homer7426 13:27, 1 February 2012 (EST)

Unless you have an IRC cloak, yes. Also, why are you editing from this username? The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 13:37, 1 February 2012 (EST)
Almost kickbanned for writing backwards, so I'm sort of keeping a low profile. Ruined that now. I tried getting on as "Jawguy", writing with "verry bad gramer", but Cook deciphered it (or recognised my IP). | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 13:42, 1 February 2012 (EST)
Not kickbanned, just kicked - you exited before I could kick you though. Anyway your IP comes up as you enter/leave the channel.--Cook879 14:31, 1 February 2012 (EST)

Hey![edit]

Hi! Nice to see this wiki is growing up very fast every day! Just a question, why do you create the talk pages manually, without using the bot? Greetings from Argentina. --Simpsons88 15:41, 3 February 2012 (EST)

Hey Simpsons88 - long time no see. My bot can do that????--Cook879 15:43, 3 February 2012 (EST)

Of course!, AWB can convert to talk pages and ad the template at the top. --Simpsons88 15:44, 3 February 2012 (EST)

May have to give that a go in the future. Thanks.--Cook879 15:46, 3 February 2012 (EST)

About that, it's one of the pages I moved from Simpsons Wiki, which I didn't have time to add any info to. I was going to add some, but I got a bit distracted with other stuff.

Licensing babysimpson[edit]

Hi, I really hope you didn't make any more edits like this, as the categories are okay, but the licensing {{Image babysimpson}} isn't. They're images from The Simpsons, so the licensing is {{Image Fox}}.

That's... nice. What's your friend code? Mine is 2062-9256-2203.--Cook879 17:30, 27 March 2012 (EDT)
I only reason I said that is because you sighed when I didn't DEFAULTSORT my page.

Course I sighed - you could have easily DEFAULTSORTED - 3DS has a fully functional browser. Bottom screen, along the top bar is a little orange square. Click on it, then select your Mii. Has your friend code there.--Cook879 17:38, 27 March 2012 (EDT)
I just made this page with my 3DS and didn't have any problem with DEFAULTSORTING, or anything else. Took me forever though. :-\ --Nick97 (talk ~ contribs) 19:33, 27 March 2012 (EDT)

It was pretty much at max anyway. The only higher is over 1/2 a page, and I can't access them anyway.--Cook879 16:15, 14 April 2012 (EDT)

Obviously Cook does. I don't have an account either. And I never find the promos first. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 16:20, 14 April 2012 (EDT)
Personally I don't, but I have access to one.--Cook879 16:22, 14 April 2012 (EDT)
Well, if Cook has an account, he should be able to access all versions of the promos. ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 16:23, 14 April 2012 (EDT)
No, we're only allowed to download the 72dpi images.--Cook879 16:27, 14 April 2012 (EDT)

Say what?--Cook879 16:12, 26 April 2012 (EDT)
Well, nearly that, but in other words: the coding is really long. By double link, I mean the box on your preferences says something like {{User:Cook879/sig2}}, and on that page it transcludes User:Cook879/sig. That would mean when you type ~~~~ it would say: {{User:Cook879/sig}} ~~~~~. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 02:15, 27 April 2012 (EDT)

Thank you. By long and tiring, I mean like when you removed the italics from comic pages. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 13:22, 9 May 2012 (EDT)

RANDOMNO! Add the right name then.--Cook879 12:04, 14 May 2012 (EDT)
Oi! You could have left me a message. It does say "please contact the user". Anyway, I think it should be Homer J. Simpson or homerjsimpson. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 12:32, 14 May 2012 (EDT)
But the Twitter account is clearly "@HomerJSimpson". We can't change that. Also check it's talkpage.--Cook879 12:34, 14 May 2012 (EDT)

Category:Images - Locations[edit]

I've been adding that lately because many images do have people in some sort of place. For character slates, we wouldn't include it, but for most pictures we should. Also, we put too many pages in Category:Images - Characters, and not enough in the locations images category. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 02:50, 15 May 2012 (EDT)

As I said to Fred, adding locations to every image with a location is like adding objects to every image, as they all feature something, be it a tree or a t-shirt. Yes, characters is quite overused, and it could probably do with a clear out, but we shouldn't overload categories for the sake of it.--Cook879 05:37, 15 May 2012 (EDT)
I'll attempt to clear it out, then. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 11:40, 15 May 2012 (EDT)
Also, I don't think we should include categories for characters that aren't the main focus of the image. For example, we have Category:Images - Lisa here, but that image is supposed to show Susan; Lisa is just behind her. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 11:42, 15 May 2012 (EDT)
Open a wiki discussion about it.--Cook879 11:43, 15 May 2012 (EDT)
I gave up removing the category. I might open a discussion. | SimpsonsFR.pngSimpsonsFA.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFD.pngSimpsonsFO.pngSimpsonsFM.pngSimpsonsFN.pngSimpsonsFO.png | Talk | Contributions | Edit count | 11:54, 15 May 2012 (EDT)

Troy McClure Films[edit]

Cook, you done with the Troy McClure films template? I need to add a number of his movies in. WebkinzMania 13:56, 23 May 2012 (EDT)

Yep - I doubt I'll get back to the film template till Friday evening, as I got lot's of exams to prepare for. Thanks for checking though :)--Cook879 14:00, 23 May 2012 (EDT)
Sorry, Cook. Thanks for fixing it though. I'm done with it, anyways. WebkinzMania 14:27, 23 May 2012 (EDT)
Would Shoplifters BEWARE go under both Springfield Mall and Troy McClure Films? WebkinzMania 08:52, 26 May 2012 (EDT)
No, as it was played at Try 'N' Save, not the Mall.--Cook879 08:53, 26 May 2012 (EDT)
My bad. WebkinzMania 08:55, 26 May 2012 (EDT)

I'm working on Meat and You: Partners in Freedom, so I added it to the Troy McClure films template. -- Mythigator 09:34, 26 May 2012 (EDT)

Ok.--Cook879 09:37, 26 May 2012 (EDT)

Bart 71 Oops[edit]

Sorry about the oops with Bart Simpson #71 and thanks for the catch. I couldn't sleep so I figured I'd get the comic's story summaries taken care of (as well as writing the article for the latest Maggie's Crib story), and apparently I was sleepier than I thought I was. :-/ -- Mythigator 10:23, 28 May 2012 (EDT)

Haha, no problem we all mess up sometimes. I didn't notice when I clicked your edit, only when I had a minute to waste later on and found it under uncategorised pages.--Cook879 10:32, 28 May 2012 (EDT)

Book Category Name Change?[edit]

Hope I don't come off like I'm nitpicking because you're really kicking butt with these categories. :-) Anyway, this is about the "Flanders' bibles" category. Back when Ale started all those articles and we were working on writing them, we figured that not all of the books seen on the bookshelf were Bibles. So a more descriptive and more accurate category name would be something like "Flanders family Bibles and religious books". I'm not sure how to change the name of the template without making a mess, and you've got a WIP tag on the "root" Books navbox template, so I figured that mentioning the change to you was the most appropriate way to go. Hope it's not too much trouble!

Also, it looks like you're working through the books alphabetically by title in getting them categorized. When you get to What Would Jesus View?, it can go under the "Flanders family Bibles and religious books" category. That placement makes the most sense, and it's looking there's going to be a boatload of books under "Other", so it seems that anything that can be done to place books elsewhere would be a good thing. -- Mythigator 09:07, 30 May 2012 (EDT)

Thanks for the info Myth, will change it and add it now.--Cook879 09:53, 30 May 2012 (EDT)
The other could probably be split some time in the future. Maybe categories like "Simpson family books" for those by the family, and one for Lisa's books from Virtual Springfield. If we throw together a list of possible categories, then it will be much easier and convenient to split.--Cook879 17:21, 30 May 2012 (EDT)
And I just added a third book by Burns.--Cook879 17:23, 30 May 2012 (EDT)
Virtual Springfield would be a really good book category. There were a bunch from there! -- Mythigator 18:32, 30 May 2012 (EDT)

Happy birthday! Lucky you, eh? --Wk (talk) 04:02, 18 June 2012 (EDT)

Luann Van Houten LGBT?[edit]

How do you figure? You've got her on the "Bisexual" template, but she doesn't have an entry on the LGBT characters page. -- Mythigator 09:40, 12 February 2013 (EST)

I based it off the page - she was in the category and there's a line saying she has also been gay based off of "Wild Barts Can't Be Broken" - added by AleWi.--Cook879 12:29, 12 February 2013 (EST)
The "gay divorcee" line in "Wild Barts" is a reference to her being footloose and fancy-free (i.e., free to date around and live a single lifestyle) following her divorce. The word is used in the old-style sense of "gay" meaning "happy", so in this context it does not refer to homosexuality. -- Mythigator 18:38, 12 February 2013 (EST)
Well if that's what she said, then remove it. I was just going on what AleWi said.--Cook879 18:44, 12 February 2013 (EST)
It isn't a matter of who said what; it's a case of the word's meaning being revealed in its context. No slight on AleWi—that's a fairly obscure bit of usage. Anyway, Luann should be all "straight"-ened out now, as well as the LGBT/Bi template. -- Mythigator 19:11, 12 February 2013 (EST)

Helping Out[edit]

I noticed you were here so I decided to help you all out :). Nice to see you edit here. I love The Simpsons, especially Bart the Genius. I also noticed that links like Bart should be Bart Simpson so they do not have to be redirect links. I was only making a suggestion to you. Gazlene the Pork Girl 13:55, 31 March 2013 (EDT)

Hi. Good to see you here. We use redirects to reduce the amount of code on the pages, but thanks for the suggestion.--Cook879 14:58, 31 March 2013 (EDT)
Also, I have a request for you here about The Mario Encyclopedia. Gazlene the Pork Girl 19:10, 18 April 2013 (EDT)

Sound file[edit]

Where did you find this sound file mentioning Hailstone's in the TO files? ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 11:29, 30 June 2013 (EDT)

It's in with the rest of the sound files in the audio folder.--Cook879 12:32, 30 June 2013 (EDT)
Could you check to see if anything new's been added to the sound files with the recent update? (4.3.1) ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 01:17, 10 July 2013 (EDT)
There wasn't anything new in the latest update, it was just bugfixes. The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.) 07:13, 10 July 2013 (EDT)

Hello[edit]

HOMR was on a British TV channel today and I got out my camera to take a liberal amount of screenshots for no reason other than to see how clear they'd be. Someone came in as soon as the opening credits were ending so I ducked in front of the TV and I turned my head around too late to take a photo of the safe-for-kiddies animation convention sign: "Sick, Twisted, Totally Twisted Animation Festival!" I was annoyed, but I managed to take one of Homer with a disproportionately large head. Is there any screenshots from seasons 1, 3-10 or 12-15 that need being put up because I could try to take them off the DVD? Homer to the Max (talk) 16:38, September 3, 2013 (EDT)

See Category:Articles needing images. That could be a start. Also, you can find episodes online to take better quality screenshots. Just try searching around for these. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk - Contribs.)☆ 17:07, September 3, 2013 (EDT)

Table code[edit]

Hi Cook, I just noticed that the tables look bad in Chrome, there's no lines separating the boxes and sections in the header styles. I tried a few things but can't get it to work. Could you look into it? I would ask you on IRC but you've probably seen me joining and leaving straight after a few times... Oh, and could you see if you can find a way to clean up the code, I think that there's more code there than needed. :P Thanks, The Solar Dragon 13:55, November 9, 2013 (EST)

Image Bongo[edit]

Hey, I want to code {{Image Bongo}} so when the 2nd parameter is "Bart Simpson Comics", it links to Bart Simpson (comic book series) but still displays "Bart Simpson Comics". I've tried various ways of doing this, none of which have worked perfectly. You can see a couple of my attempts in the template's history. I'm wondering whether you could help and get it working where I failed? Thanks, The Solar Dragon 17:27, February 24, 2014 (EST)

Tapped Out[edit]

Would you be able to retrieve the sound files for Hailstone's you found in the Tapped Out game files last summer and sent them to me? Thanks, ~ Phinbart (talkcontribs) 06:25, November 16, 2014 (EST)

Currently no - if I haven't deleted them (I may well have) then they're within the 800GB of data on my laptop or the 500GB of data on my external harddrive. The good news is if I ever get a free moment between coursework, work work and other activities I do intend to clean up my harddrives, so if I see them I'll give you a holler. --Cook879 14:26, November 16, 2014 (EST)
