Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

thanks for welcome[edit]

thanks for the warm welcome :) AlexWangombe 21:03, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thanks for working on the categories that I marked. We need to do a lot of maintenance here, and it wouldn't hurt to start now. Thanks :) Joey - Talk Contribs 11:12, 8 February 2009 (UTC) Yeah, i have some great ideas for character pages but i would have to sit through all the episodes. I'm going to do some more after i finish my school work.Sgtcook 11:19, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Thanks again. Well I have a bot, so it does it for me. It's a lot easier that way. If you have any suggestions for my bot, I'm all ears... Joey - Talk Contribs 23:14, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

You know you don't need to make the pages with that template, just apply it whenever a talk page is made. My bot added it to all talk pages that were already made, so doing what your doing isn't necessary ;) Perhaps it would be better if we welcomed IPs more. Thanks. Joey - Talk Contribs 01:20, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Oh and considering that we have an extremely small community, I think it is time we make this wiki more publicly known. Ideas? And what do you think? Joey - Talk Contribs 06:06, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

I am aware of the google ranking raiser, that may work too. We need to get more people here, as it is just you, kingcjc, and me. And even you two are losing your activeness here. Perhaps a revamp in our MediaWiki coding and make this wiki more attractive would keep them here. Along with welcoming all the IPs here too. Also, I was thinking that since you two are not too active, it might benefit the wiki if I became an admin too so I could help with vandalism and/ blocking/deleting spam. It's not a big deal, I just thought you guys may want as much help as you could get. Joey - Talk Contribs 11:53, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

So then, you agree? I'll talk to kingcjc too. Joey - Talk Contribs 12:10, 14 February 2009 (UTC)
i know, just add your vote under the appropriate section on my talk page, thanks. Joey - Talk Contribs 00:00, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Interlanguage links[edit]

Hi Sgtcook. It's great to hear that you'll be working on the interlanguage links. I've replied to your message on de:Diskussion:Hauptseite. User:Angela|Angela (User talk:Angela|talk) 03:06, 21 February 2009

New Skin[edit]

Hey, a few of us went out and started designing a new skin for this wiki, and we came to a result we would be happy with as this wiki's default. I just want to get some feedback about it before implementing it, so to test it out, just go to User:Sgtcook/monaco.css and create it with this line of code:
@import "/index.php?title=User:Joeyaa/monaco.css&usemsgcache=yes&action=raw&ctype=text/css&smaxage=18000";  

Then, clear your cache (instructions are on that page) and leave me a note on what you think. Thanks. Joey - Talk Contribs 06:18, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Promotion[edit]

Hi! I've been working with Wikia's marketing manager on a cool promotional idea, and I'd love to talk to the other admins here to get some feedback. Can you drop me a line so we can talk about it? Thanks! —User:Scarecroe|Scott (User talk:Scarecroe|talk) 20:50, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

The Frying Game[edit]

Why did you get rid of the frying game? It is a very good article and many characters have this episode in their appearences section, making it a developed article.

Re:Welcome[edit]

Thanks. My impressions are that the structure of the Wiki needs some work in terms of organisation. I'll probably turn up now and again to work on stuff like that.-- 17:19, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

South Park event[edit]

Hiya! Thanks for putting up a sitenotice for the South Park event! I sent you and some other admins here an email a couple weeks ago, but I'm not sure if it went through. Please feel free to contact me on my talk page or email if you have any questions about the Scavenger Hunt. Thanks! —User:Scarecroe|Scott (User talk:Scarecroe|talk) 19:32, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Re:Delete[edit]

Yeah, thanks. That's why I put up the template, lol.--Pig HouseTalk | Uncyclopedia:User:Pig House|Uncyclopedia 16:06, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Re:D'oh[edit]

It's done. I just made sure there were no formatting/punctuation errors and made it a bit easier to read. Is there a set time before it becomes a featured article, or do you not have a procedure? Just wandering.--Pig HouseTalk | Uncyclopedia:User:Pig House|Uncyclopedia 16:00, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

It's just a minor thing, but I don't know if you noticed that you inserted the un-fixored version's intro into the template. Sorry if it was deliberate(?)--Pig HouseTalk | Uncyclopedia:User:Pig House|Uncyclopedia 15:28, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

The twins[edit]

Hi. Thanks for the welcome. In the character box that shows up here and there, the Bouvier twins has a comon link, that goes to Patty Bouvier. Shouden't the box link be splited into two links? Jacce | Talk 05:43, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Featured Picture[edit]

In the "Featured Picture", it is the image of the promo of "The Good, the Sad and the Drugly"; can you change it to the promo image of the next episode: Waverly Hills 9-0-2-1-D'oh --PanadolForte 02:54, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Hi[edit]

Hi, just to say I am a member here. See you around. Solar Dragon 15:43, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Ling Bouvier's article says she made a cameo appearance in the movie. I did not see her. Would you like to tell me what scene she appeared in? SonofSamhain 18:47, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

I am sorry, Sgtcook, but I do not know who said Ling appeared in the movie and I do not have time to look through all the history edits. I guess I will just have to keep my eyes peeled the next time I watch it. SonofSamhain 19:50, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

The Hangover[edit]

Hi! I'm Soctt from Wikia Entertainment. There's a new comedy movie called "The Hangover" coming out this week from the director of Old School. We're running a giveaway with some pretty sweet prizes. Would it be ok if we ran a site notice on this wiki for the week that the promotion is running? I think folks in your community would appreciate something like that. Please let me know, thanks! —User:Scarecroe|Scott (User talk:Scarecroe|talk) 17:04, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

herman[edit]

will herman please be in the new simpsons episodes

Well they haven't said anything, but they don't really announce that regular characters appear.--Sgtcook 10:11, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Olaiea editied Lisa's wedding, The Great Louse dective, and can do much more![edit]

I hope that The title isn't to long. But, Hey! I can edit a lot of stuff. So if one shall need anything edited, leave me a message!--Olaiea 13:53, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Adminship[edit]

Hello. Would you mind appointing me Admin also so as I may design the site? A topic such as this deserves a nice, customized skin. For some examples of my work, see the Kerli Wiki and the Wizard of Oz Wiki is currently under construction. Thank you :o) Tangeled Web Weaver 22:20, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

Also, I cleaned up the Homer's head logo on top and I'd like upload it Tangeled Web Weaver 22:48, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

--   FedericoF    Talk    contribuctions    email   20:54, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

In the article 'The Heartbroke Kid' Spangler is referred to as 'former fast food magnate'. He's says he was a former marine but I didn't see anything in the episode mentioning him as a fast food magnate. I haven't edited it in case it's in another episode but it doesn't match the character if it is. Should I edit it or leave it? Psymantis 18:14, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

Skin[edit]

Hi Sgtcook, what happened with the previous skin? I just created one here. Look at the photo. Greetings, --Simpsons88 18:17, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

There's a problem that you can't change the default skin? You're right, the wiki photo background is quite bright but you can change the colours if you want, I created it only for make the wiki more similar to The Simpsons. --Simpsons88 20:27, October 10, 2009
I don't know if this help, but did you choose Beach skin in your preferences at the up part or in the section Admin Options? I have that doubt becouse it says that the admins choose Sapphire. Sorry for loosing your time, --Simpsons88 (messages · +) 19:12, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

I'm from the Simpson Wiki in Spanish. I can talk in english well, but I need help (again). Where I can find lyrics from the simpsons theme Hullaba lula (in Testify)?

SimpsonQuote[edit]

Hi friend! It's me again. The past day I created w:c:es.simpsonquote:Simpsonquote Wiki|SimpsonQuote (in Spanish). I'm saying this only because I used the Wikisimpson Logo (with the parody of Wikiquote xD). Know that I used it and it is not a copy. Greetings!, --Simpsons88 (messages · +) 15:00, October 31, 2009 (UTC)

thanks for the message[edit]

Hi Thanks for the message. can you also confirm the HD reruns on weekdays are not in HD or was it just my fox station thanks

Hi![edit]

Hi and thanks for the message! I was an admin in the simpsons wiki in spanish, like simpsons88 (the difference that he's admin now). The Wiki's creator bloked me because i restore the "esbozo" (stub) template, and he eliminated it. If you don't understand me, don't worry, i don't understand too XD! no, i'm lying, but well, now i can edit but without my admin powers. --190.179.76.133 16:55, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Where did you get the photos of your video from? Can you please upload them onto my website? NewYorkCity101 02:03, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

Webs.com[edit]

Create your own website about The Simpsons on Webs.com. I'd be happy to join! Remember, it takes time to make a website, so don't worry if you're bad at it. NewYorkCity101 23:51, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Idea[edit]

Why don't to put the twitter template in the main page, below the featured episode, ocuping "width=100%" ? Greetings, --Simpsons88 20:28, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, yes. But I'm saying that twitter template should be at the end of the page, under the featured episode. Then the index template will have a beeter looking. --Simpsons88 21:31, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
Quite better! Thanks, --Simpsons88 21:49, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

How do you become and admin if you didn't found the wiki?[edit]

I was just wondering, how do you become an admin on any wiki? Because I was thinking of becoming an admin on the PaF Wiki but I don't know how. NNewt84 01:39, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

RE: My question[edit]

Thanx for letting me know how to become an admin. But where will I find this "Request Adminship" button? NNewt84 23:15, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Not a button but a page. For instance the other week when i requested to be admin of Wii Wiki, i went to a page called Wii Wiki: Requests for Adminship. So just search it, or use the all pages with prefix and click (wikiname) and it should be there.--Sgtcook 00:19, December 26, 2009 (UTC)

Template:Stub[edit]

I replaced the image in the template to this one (withouth background). If u want u can delete :File:Homer-simpson.jpg|previus image. --Simpsons88 02:27, January 7, 2010 (UTC)

Hi I came to say abou the Maggie page why the link Future Drama is in red instead of blue. It's because it's written like this, Future-Drama. Please make that change for me. I can't because the page is protected, well see yaMurphyshane 16:43, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Seasons on DVD[edit]

How many seasons of The Simpsons are on DVD? I see that there are at least 11. By the way, I'm helping to n The FlashForward Wiki! Maybe you see my name if you clikc on recent activity and home. Station7 21:37, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Are there on this site Airdates? I'm from The Netherlands. The Simpsons Movie was great to see. I have ironically only seasons 1 & 10. That's because I couldn't find those other seasons at the shop at that time. But I will get them, and the movie. It's nice to hear that season 20 there is. Do you have all the seasons? Station7 21:47, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. Where do you get that information from? Station7 21:52, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for telling me who the founder is see ya round

Template for Town/City Profiles[edit]

We really need a common template for the profiles of the towns and cities (i.e. Springfield, Shelbyville). There's so many different ones I don't know which is the right one. Ldude893 14:58, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

About the article "Capital City (song)"[edit]

Can't we just display the lyrics to the song instead of the full transcript of the scene where the song is played? (Dancin' Homer) Ldude893 12:43, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

IRC[edit]

Come on please. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 16:38, February 19, 2010 (UTC)

Please block.[edit]

Hi, could you please block these two users: this person and this Person. They have been continuously vandalizing pages (I can't believe that they haven't been caught yet). I also have reason to believe that one is just a sock-puppet of the other as their first edits were only 3 minutes apart (as you can see from their talk pages), and they seem to edit the same articles. I believe that the person is using 2 accounts to vandalize because that makes it harder for people to just rollback their edits. Thanks--Smiley12 was here at 07:14, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Template we might need[edit]

Search for the Missing Treasures![edit]

Guess what! I found out about some treasures which may be the most valuable thing ever! These pictures will motivate you to search every town, city, state and country where you can possibly access for the lost treasures of Swordquest. The quest is not over; we, the people of Earth, will not rest till these treasures are found! Now, the hunt is afoot!

I want you to spread the word by forwarding this to every contact you have, and by telling people in person that they must not rest until they find what will be worth a fortune if one finds them.

Introducing Wikia's new look:[edit]

Greetings! As many of you have already seen, Wikia is undergoing some major changes to their site layout. As of Wednesday, October 6th, the change will affect both the appearance and how things are done on several wikis, and come October 20th these changes will effect all Wikia sites. These changes are mandatory as this is not simply a new skin option, it’s actually an upgraded version of the core Mediawiki platform itself. Check out "Experience the new Wikia" for a look at some wikis using the new look, FAQ and the Transition guide.


Transitioning to the New Look[edit]

We know you’ve put a lot of work into making your wikis look great in Monaco, so we’ve worked on our end to minimize the amount of effort needed for you to move to the new look. Still, there are some things you’ll want to do in order for your wiki to look its best in the new skin. We strongly encourage you to use our Transition Guide to make this process as smooth and seamless as possible.

Our new Special:ThemeDesigner|theme designer tool will be available to everyone during the first stage of sitewide roll-out on October 6th. This gives you time to experiment with different themes and chat with your community about what looks best before all visitors see your wiki in the new look.

We know that many of you are Wikia experts, and have a ton of experience to share with newer users, who may need more help with the transition. To tap all your knowledge, we will soon be setting up a page where users can request and provide help on the transition.


Timeline[edit]

The next step is to slowly but surely move all wikis over to the new skin. While there may be some tweaks, the projected schedule is below so that you know what to expect over the coming weeks.

October 6, 2010
  • The new look will continue to be default for logged-out users on the beta wikis
  • All logged in users will be able to “switch on” the new look for themselves on any wiki they visit.
  • All new wikis created will automatically use the new look.
  • Every wiki in the Wikia Lifestyle Hub will showcase the new look.
October 20, 2010
  • All users will see the new look on every wiki.
  • Logged in users will have the temporary option of viewing and editing wikis in Monaco.
November 3, 2010
  • The option to use Monaco will be removed.


Discontinued features[edit]

  • The widget dashboard and all widgets are to be discontinued as they were deemed to be underused.
  • "Report a Problem" links will also be discontinued with the new skin as they were not used as intended.
  • "Email a user" link is gone.
  • Page ratings are gone.


New features[edit]

  • New, customizable toolbar that is anchored at the bottom of the screen (Watch the demo video to see how it works.) You will need to learn to use this. (requires JavaScript)
  • New tool for customizing the colour scheme/theme, including default themes.


Other changes[edit]

  • The new look uses a fixed width layout, we are not permitted to change, which might influence the layout of articles quite a bit.
  • Wiki logo is replaced with "Wordmark", which admins can customize by adjusting the text & color, or by uploading an image in the theme designer.
  • Site notice is no longer on every page. It is now located in the Community Corner and users will receive a notification bubble each time it is updated.
  • The wiki navigation that is now on the left sidebar, is moving to the top of the screen. It will have 4 drop down menus, with 7 links each. This is substantially less than we currently have. (requires JavaScript)
  • "My Home" becomes "Wiki Activity" and contains a link to recent changes
  • There is a new sidebar area on the right that takes about 1/3 of each page's width, where the recent activity and other "modules" will sit. More "modules" are being developed for it, but there are currently no plans for user-developed modules.
  • Moved the most recent editor’s name from the bottom of the page to the top, added an avatar, and a new mini-history dropdown menu, which contains the link to the full history. (Supposed to make it more obvious to new users that anyone can edit a wiki.) (requires JavaScript)
  • Two of the categories are listed at top as well the full list at the bottom. Apparently the two chosen will be the categories containing the most pages. There is a blacklist to keep out typical maintenance categories, but it is not wiki specific (atm).
  • Edit and talk buttons will be used instead of written links.
  • The name of the user who uploaded a picture will be listed underneath the image caption on articles.
  • The "Terms of Use" are changed so that we will only have very limited options on what we may change on the new layout that is visible to all users.


Terms of Use[edit]

In keeping with the goals of the new look, our w:c:wikia:Terms_Of_Use|Terms of Use have been updated as well. Admins will no longer be able to completely remove core features for all users by using custom CSS or JavaScript. This is to protect the universal layout and functionality of every wiki on Wikia and ensure that users have access to all of the features available in the new design. Remember, these Help:Customization_policy |new terms only apply to the CSS of the wiki as a whole -- they don’t apply to your personal pages.

To give a few practical examples of what this means: It’s not permitted to remove the right sidebar modules, blogs, and image attribution or add a banner that shifts the entire content area down the page, or alter the fixed width. You can still personalize your wiki with different colors and themes, add large, standout images to the wiki background, create styled templates and tables within the content area. There are plenty of ways to be creative! While these terms will limit what you can do to the overall layout, creativity is still an essential part of Wikia.


If you need any help, or if you have any questions or issues - please feel free to contact me on my talk page and I'll get an answer back to you A.S.A.P.
