Bronze Homer[edit]

Golden Homer.png The Bronze Homer Award

Congratulations! For your outstanding service to Wikisimpsons you have been awarded the Bronze Homer Award for January 2009!

Congratulations! If you want to, you can put {{User Bronze Homer|January 2010}} on your User Page--Smiley12 was here at 00:03, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 06:47, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

Re:Protection[edit]

A while back there was a user who liked to mess around with the main page. I'm not going to allow for such a high profile page to be unprotected, especially since there are so few active users here, which means vandalism can go undetected for hours. -- Brian McClure 15:16, February 4, 2010 (UTC)

Hello!


I would like to know if there are some straight articles about The Simpsons episodes, and their reflection about modern American culture? Detailed cultural refferences, habbits, behaviours, personality types which are reflected purely in these great series. I would be surely grateful for all kind of aid, or for any relating articles which can help me. Thank you for your time, and I am looking forward your responses. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.84.27.75 (talk) 11:18, February 20, 2010

Can I do anything contributing to the site at all? Any stubs I can fix?


Jessica98sites 21:54, February 22, 2010 (UTC)Jessica98sites

See Category:Stubs for a list of stub articles. They need to be improved and have the stub tag removed. Thanks, ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 21:55, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

RE: Custom skin[edit]

Hi Solar Dragon. Sorry for the late reply. I've been swamped with work the last few days. I should be done with my current projects by Friday of this week, so I'll drop by again then and start working on the custom skin. Talk to you soon. JoePlay<staff /> (talk) 22:34, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

Hello again. I just went live with the custom skin I made from your request. Hard refresh (Ctrl+F5) if you don't see it. Let me know if you want me to change anything. JoePlay<staff /> (talk) 22:44, February 26, 2010 (UTC)

Bad Title[edit]

The article Freaky Family, is a horrible title. I suggest, since I cannot, that you change the article's name to "Norman Rockwell-esque Family", as it looks like the picture of Norman's with the family eating Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you for your time.


Jessica98sites 02:59, February 24, 2010 (UTC)


A question: How do you add photos to the info box? I have not learned this particular skill yet.


Jessica98sites 03:13, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

Deleting an Article[edit]

Can you please delete the article Little Moe Szyslak (The Monkey Suit)? There is already one Little Moe Szyslak.


Jessica98sites 04:32, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

Already done. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 06:06, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

Please delete another article titled KBBL DJ, as there is already a KBBL DJ article. Jessica98sites 09:56, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

Horrible Editing[edit]

There is horrible editing being done by an unregistered contributor, who is putting their own opinions and senseless jabbering into articles, not doing it the way the criteria states. Please talk to this person if you can. Thank you for your time, Jessica98sites 13:56, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

Link please? ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 13:56, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

User talk:92.233.234.181 That is the user's talk page. Since I have seen all the articles this user has edited, I have edited them to fit the criteria, so you may have to check the history of each page. Once again, thanks for your time. Jessica98sites 14:00, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

Maybe once or twice then. They seem to be just trying to help out. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 14:03, March 6, 2010 (UTC)


I suppose so. Anyway, thanks for your time. Jessica98sites 14:03, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

I have to deal with this sort of thing all the time. It is just poor wiki skills mainly. I can't really tell anyone off for that. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 14:04, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

hi i'm bored is there any thing i can fix???????????? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ribbons88 (talkcontribs) 16:30, March 6, 2010

Firstly, sign your comments with ~~~~ We have a whole category full of Stub articles needed to eb expanded. You can start there if you want. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 16:32, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

I swear I didn't do it! Anonymous huge Simpsons fan —Preceding unsigned comment added by 91.105.94.45 (talk) 22:15, March 25, 2010

You have a different IP code than the user who did the terrible contributions. Why are you saying you didn't do it? Jessica98sites 19:11, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

I think I reverted an edit he made but am not sure. He may be a bit crazy... ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 20:02, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

Re:Characters[edit]

So I should not use the automatic character template that comes up when you click character, therefore negating the point of having such a preloadable template altogether? Kingcjc 22:02, March 8, 2010 (UTC)

Credits[edit]

How do I do a credits page? I am asking this question because I have not learned how to use a template. Jessica98sites 07:20, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

{{TabC
|episode=Episode name (copy and paste)
}}

Enter credits

The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 17:14, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

Delete Page[edit]

Since I cannot delete this page, you must have to delete Candy makes Dandy, as there is already a page for the correct title: Candy Most Dandy. Thank you for your time. Jessica98sites 21:10, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

Done. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 21:16, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

Golden Homer Award[edit]

I have something else to ask you. Do you have the faintest idea of who nominated me for the Golden Homer Award? I have just seen it today, and I would like to thank them. (UNRELATED NOTE: How do you add a picture on your user page? I cannot another image on my user page, unless it is already uploaded) Jessica98sites 21:27, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

Try the History link, on the same bar as Edit this page. It was Smiley12. Also, type [[File:File name.jpg/bmp/png (Just copy and paste the image title)]] You can also type |thumb| and |250px| to change the size of the image. Link me to the image and I will do it if you want. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 21:33, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

I didn't say this: I want to upload a picture from my computer. How would I do that? Jessica98sites 21:55, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

OK then. Save it then look on the sidebar. At the bottom of this, it says upload new image. Press that and upload. Please use licensing as well. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 21:56, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for helping me, I finally got it. Thanks again, Jessica98sites 23:15, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

The Simpsons Answers[edit]

I created a Simpsons WikiAnswers - only problem is i put an extra Answers in, not knowing one is automatically added, but i emailed Wikia to get it changed. link.--Sgtcook (My Talk Page) 18:20, March 17, 2010 (UTC)

Template[edit]

Thanks For The Suggestion. Duncan Crook.

Copying from Wikipedia[edit]

What's our policy on copying from Wikipedia? Is it legal? Ldude893 12:59, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

well, it is not really wanted. Therefore, all articles that have had content copied must be changed some time in the future. However, if you do, add the template {{Wikipedia}} to the articles somewhere. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 17:05, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

Any Edits I Can Do?[edit]

Are there any edits I can do, so I can prove to be more deserving of the Golden Homer Award? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jessica98sites (talkcontribs)

Try Category:Stubs. It is full of articles that need more information. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 16:45, March 28, 2010 (UTC)

Image Licensing[edit]

If I delete an image, do I still have to license it? Jessica98sites 19:19, March 28, 2010 (UTC)

Well, no. But don't just delete images. Just use the temaplate: {{Image Fox|source=[[Episode name]]|shows=What the image shows}}. It is that simple. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 17:25, March 28, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I know. I will do that. Thank you very much, Jessica98sites 19:19, March 28, 2010 (UTC)

Ban someone[edit]

This pitiful excuse of a person thinks that he's so hardcore and cool by vandalizing Bart Simpson's page. User:Strongbow233 Tell this grade school nerd to get out of here.

Mask no Oni 04:13, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

hey and sorry[edit]

hey remember me i'm watching you. JK. I find you everywhere. anyway guess who pu a basic plot on the episode as it happened last night. Me. User:ScarletScarabX 13:12, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I saw your edit. I'm not everywhere. Just on the list of wikis on my user page. Anyway, glad to have you here. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 16:23, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

Out of Curiosity[edit]

Is this wiki doing anything special for April Fools Day? Ldude893 08:29, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

hey cool idea they should do things like holiday skins. User:ScarletScarabX 14:39, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

I'll let you in on it. Check my blog posts. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 15:19, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

how do you make a skin? i want to make one custom for holidays. i am good at it and can make custom simpsons, futurwaama family guy anything if you need but seriously how do you? User:ScarletScarabX 18:12, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Good one!! really belivable try using a red x on the pic User:ScarletScarabX 18:15, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

Cancelled is spelled with two 'L's. The picture's good enough without a red x. Ldude893 04:15, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

We have to spell everything on this wiki is American spelling though, so the spelling is correct. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 05:09, March 31, 2010 (UTC)
User:Smiley12/April Fools Message maybe this in the sitenotice...--Smiley12 was here at 05:23, March 31, 2010 (UTC)
Seems good. Will put on tomorrow then. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 05:26, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

i'm just saying it would look cooler User:ScarletScarabX 16:03, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

I personally think it would look childish and obviously changed. I don't really want to do it because of that. If you try it though, I may see what i think. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 16:07, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Canceled can be spelled either way, as both are acceptable. Most Americans, however, spell it with one 'L'. Jessica98sites 19:16, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure that the canceled with one l is the official American spelling though. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 19:21, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

?[edit]

with the article Reverend Timothy Lovejoy and go to his mother and click on it where it says Mrs. Lovejoy


it pops up Timothy's wife- Helen Lovejoy...could somebody fix that.... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.196.120.119 (talk) 02:01, April 4, 2010

Yes i do, but i prefer Barney as the featured article over Marge. Dohayecarumbadoh 20:51, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your help with the Jacqueline Bouvier article. I was going to ask for help, until I noticed that you had done it already. I was trying to put the image (that I was going to license after I saved the page), and it messed up and I was desperately trying to fix it. Jessica98sites 19:37, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

I have no idea what happened. Do you use the Rich Text Editor? ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 19:37, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

Small Manual of Style addition proposition[edit]

Hey there, just a quick suggestion, I've noticed a lot that in character infoboxes for one-time special celebrity guest voiced characters people create their own Simpsons wikia page for that voice acting celebrity. I think it would be much better if people just added wikipedia links instead, having Simpsons wikia pages for real life celebrities just clutters the wiki up with pictures of the celebrity and lots of non-canon articles that are in no way related to the Simpsons.


So it would be just great if you could add something along the lines of:

"Do not create Simpsons wikia pages for real-life guest star celebrities, instead add a wikipedia link to the person by using "[[wikipedia:Celebrity Name|Celebrity Name]]</code>"

to the manual of style.

Ex. of not-in-universe celebrity pages:

If you approve of this change I'll start personally adding wikipedia links to character infoboxes.

And I just mean for minor one-time celebrity, the major cast and crew of the show i.e Dan Castellaneta would still have his own Simpsons wikia page.

Thanks. --Alexandersig 08:51, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Well, I personally think that each celebrity should have their own page as they are related to the Simpsons. This is a Simpsons encyclopedia after all. It is not much different to having a page on a character who appeared for 10 seconds, on which we have a few. ☆The Solar Dragon (Talk)☆ 09:00, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
