User talk:Dr. Ralph Wiggum

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

Discuss stuff for Dr. Ralph Wiggum.

Welcome to my talk page.

Episodes layout[edit]

I already posted this on Basel's talk page, but seeing as you're the only other regular contributor here, I'll show you my idea as well. I think we need to decide on a set format for the episode pages. Alot of them have just been copied from Wikipedia, and so aren't written in the in-universe style that this Wiki is supposed to be written in. On Wikipedia we have to write pages from an out-of-universe perspective, so we must include a limited plot summary, production info, key cultural references, and reception all in prose, with no Trivia. However here, that is not the best idea. As such I propose to have a set style guideline for episodes. It's based on what the old Wikipedia episode page format was, and essentially what the Lost episode articles on Lostpedia are like. So: A detailed synopsis - as long as it needs to be. Then a good long Trivia section, perhaps with sub-sections: General notes about the episode, if it effects the overall show, if its events are mentioned again, key production information, key reception information such as awards, animation errors and continuity errors (not "Goofs", that word is horrible). Then a separate Cultural references section, detailing every reference made in the episode. And the same would apply to the movie, but that would obviously have more production points. Thoughts?

Admin[edit]

I personally think you should be an administer as you have done the most work on here and you could delete all the spam articles straight away and use the many other admin controls to make this wiki better.Sgtcook 20:42, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

Yes but how am I suposed to be an admin?Dr. Ralph Wiggum 22:14, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

An admin or bureIaucrat has to make you one.Sgtcook 16:05, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
I seriously should be one because there are many articles here that should be deleted and many current admins have not been deleted here. Mainly, Penkinedymn and Never talks should be deleted as Penkinedymn is just a made up word and is nonsense while Never talks doesn't really need an article anyway there are more articles that should be deleted that I will get to later. Anyway, I have to find an admin or bureaucrat to talk to first.Dr. Ralph Wiggum 23:11, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
You could overthrow them all Kingcjc 10:04, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Plus you could block/ban spammers for a day,week,month or even forever,like this guy,he seems to have done alot of spamming.68.223.235.11
Just completing Wikisimpsons:Speedy deletions.If you can think of anymore add them, also could you add the {{delete}} to them.thanks
p.s. I don't think you can delete talk pages, you could just delete all the writing on it.Sgtcook 17:54, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Project:Location[edit]

I suggest a new projects and dont know where too so since ur the only regular contributor, im gonna post here PROJECT:LOCATION will include details on where , who owns and works there, pictures etc Kingcjc 10:02, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Characters that needed images[edit]

Theve all got images now Kingcjc 12:26, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Hey Ralph, sorry i wasn't around, i was working on alot of other projects, I going to try to make you an admin. You've been a great help to this wiki. Basel17 23:49, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Promo[edit]

I think we should upload promo images on to all episodes that have them.Sgtcook 21:17, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hi, my name is Brian and I'm a new bureaucrat here. I am a regular at the normal English Wikipedia and I had noticed that this site needed another active administrator and offered my services. To my surprise, not only did the Wikia people agree but they also made me a bureaucrat. So, I figured I'd introduce myself and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. -- Brian McClure 06:03, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Hello again, I noticed from your talk page that you've requested to become an admin. Are you still interested? -- Brian McClure 21:25, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Eh... yes.Dr. Ralph Wiggum 22:05, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Done. Congratulations and use your power well. -- Brian McClure 00:56, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Pages[edit]

I found this while searching around:User:Bobo192. It contains a some templates that don't seem to be used and may come in handy.Sgtcook 17:54, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Article deletions[edit]

Hi Ralph. I'm a little confused by some of your recent article deletions, particularly List of Mystical Creatures in The Simpsons and redirecting Treehouse of Horror Series to the ToH category. I see that you're an admin now, but deleting pages that the community has worked on is really something that should be discussed with those involved. Can you let me know your thoughts on this? I can be reached on my user talk page. Thanks. —Scott (talk) 03:10, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Just because mystical creatures are characters, there STILL mystical creatures, could say the same about guest stars etc Kingcjc 12:36, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Images[edit]

When adding categories to images, i found that there are many repeated or unused images, or loads of the same thing, some not even that relevant like the BBC logo.I think we need to sort through them to leave only those that are used or can be used on a page that needs images.Sgtcook 20:29, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

I think in the future we should avoid taking images from other sites. User either official images or screenshots because no fansite has a claim to them. If you need a program that will let you get screenshots, use VLC Player (just google search for it and you'll find it). -- Brian McClure 16:24, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
I never knew VLC took screenshots. i use screenhunter Kingcjc 21:19, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
yeah i use screenhunter on ethier online videos or on other sites pics, ok, it's kinda nicking them,but its better then copying.Sgtcook 21:24, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Referances/sources[edit]

Are we meant to have references in articles, some do and some don't.Could you let me know.Sgtcook 22:36, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Copying things from Wikipedia[edit]

I would prefer that people not copy things word for word from Wikipedia but for now we need to build the wiki as much as possible, and using things from Wikipedia as a building block is a good start. In the long run, I would like to see this wiki have a lot more original content, because we don't want to just look like Wikipedia. As such, I ask that in the future you try the following:

  1. Try and write an original lead. Wikipedia is done from an out of universe perspective, whereas this in-universe. So, Wikipedia's article about Flanders starts out "Ned Flanders is a fictional character in the American animated series The Simpsons". These articles do not need such introductions, so "Ned Flanders is the Simpsons religious next door neighbor is fine" is how it would start here. In other words, things like "The American animated series The Simpsons" and the like should not be in the leads.
  2. Please try and copy merged/redirected/old things as much as possible. A lot of episode pages here aren't even stubs, but a good way to expand them quickly is to use old versions from pre-March 2007, like this because they contain trivia and cultural references sections, which are of more use here than production sections. As well, it doesn't look like it was copied.
  3. If you copy things, remove all redlinks that will never have pages. Again, having a lot of redlinks screams "word for word Wikipedia copy" but if remove them, the articles look that much better.

So in the future, please try to remember those items. Thanks, Brian McClure 00:07, 14 March 2008 (UTC)

Images[edit]

I think we should re-upload images to more appropriate names.Sgtcook 17:00, 17 March 2008 (UTC) Started it, i'm deleting all image category's except the main image category as it's easier.fell free to revert it.Sgtcook 20:32, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Characters[edit]

I have the list for the poster with me right now if that helps?Sgtcook 19:56, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Shary Bobbins Episode[edit]

The episode of Simpsons including the parody of Mary Poppins obviusly has a page on this wiki. But becuase the episode name is so complicated it's hard o find the page. Could we do something about this? Tigernose--Bart & Homer 4.gif 20:41, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Noiseland Arcade[edit]

I just noticed while searching through the buisness category, I found the Noiseland Arcade article. However there were two articles of the same subject. The one named Noiseland Video Arcade, has the proper name and poroper layout (including infobox). However the one named Noise Land Video Arcade (Notice the space between Noise and Land) has more information but a less effective layout. We could make the latter article merge into the first one, so there are multiples. Many Thanks,

Wait a minute![edit]

You can't be the real Ralph! The REAL Ralph can't write!
